Far-right Republicans seek to sow distrust and hatred

The Republican Party your mothers and fathers, and even you, knew is dying.

This where matters now stand, according to US Representative Madison Cawthorn (Rep. N. Car.) speaking on 5/19/22: There is an “enemy to defeat” (in the Democratic Party) but first “cowardly and weak” Republicans members need to go… “The time for genteel politics as usual has come to an end. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command!”… “Their (Republican members) days are numbered. We are coming.”

Zealots like this take everything down with them – including their own. Their weapons are false narratives spread by high-priced commentators and leaders. They trade on hatred, the economic collapse of the lower and middle class they created, failed and contradictory policies, and spreading distrust between neighbors of a lifetime.

Cawthorn makes clear the MAGA and these far-right Republican politicians will come after everyone who are savvy enough to see through them or has something else to say.

The truth is when both parties talked about complex problems – and the world is complicated –  we prospered!

Judged by that standard – the freedom to talk and vote – MAGA and the present governing Republican coalition doesn’t want that for either party anymore. It wants all to goose step as it gains raw power.

Beware. We’ve just been warned.
