Republican Congressman publicly calls out GOP Leader for abetting his party’s “batsh*ttery”

The Republican Party continues to rot from the head down. The GOP’s refusal to distance itself from Trump, even as he refused to admit he lost the election and subsequently driven a deadly riot in the capitol, announced to the world that American conservatives were perfectly okay with authoritarianism. Conspiracy theories now form the foundation of the Republican view of the world and their points in question are boiling over thinly veiled racism, thought grievances, and knee-jerk resistance to all that the Democrats have proposed. The organization is more like a cult than a functioning political party.

For the most part, Republican politicians seem to be completely satisfied with this situation (regardless of what unknown members of Congress are forcing their hands behind closed doors) They want to keep the support of base by supporting their party’s ugliest excesses and then turning away and secretly reassuring journalists that they really hate Trump and they are very worried about the party’s direction.

Add your name to ask Congress to raise the minimum wage to $ 15 per hour!

That said, there are a handful of Republicans who aren’t afraid to say what they think without anonymity. The Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) is a Republican. Despite voting for Trump most of the time during his presidency, Kinzinger eventually turned into a blunt critic of the former president and one in ten GOP representatives to vote to impeach Trump after Jan. 6th.

Today, Kinzinger tweeted a list of some of the worst things Republicans are doing today. He counted them from one to five and they are as follows:

  1. Pushing the conspiracies about the FBI associated with the 6th of January. Tucker Carlson and other prominent Republican types of MAGA started narrative development that the siege of the Capitol was in fact a false flag established by the FBI. There is, of course, no evidence for this poisonous conspiracy theory.
  2. Comparison of the 2nd Amendment to the Vietnam war. Recently, Rep. Madison Cawthorne (R-NC) to design the right to arms help the Americans overthrow the government and that in one event the armed citizen could conduct himself like the Vietcong. Such an armed rebellion is a recurring fixture in the fantasies of the right-wingers.
  3. Afraid to shake hands with the cops who defended them. Rep. Andrew S. Clyde (R-GA) was widely criticized for voting against awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to Capitol police who fought against the insurgency on Jan. 6th. He was refused to shake hands with such officer when he met her this past Wednesday. “Blue Lives Matter” to Republicans, but it’s only clear if those blue lives are comfortable in their political narrative.
  4. Opposition to the Eleven. Some of the ugliest creeps in Congress, fourteen of them in fact, voted against making the nineteenth-a celebration of the end of slavery in America-a federal holiday. Lots of celebrities conservative commentators fell when Biden signed the holiday into law.
  5. “Lots of battshittery.” By this, Kinzinger probably means all the other truly insane narratives currently being pushed by Republicans, from the argument that Critical Race Theory is a presence threat to the United States to QAnon. The fact that it wasn’t immediately clear what “batshittery” he was referring to is rooted in the fact there are so many options. The Republican Party has really lost altogether.

Kinzinger ended his tweet by saying it would be a “great time” for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to “assert some influence.” While Kinzinger is right, he is also pretty naive. McCarthy made it perfectly clear that he supports Trumpism and all the different tendrils as long as it helps the GOP maintain power. He ay proves influence, but that influence is intended to promote MAGA and weaken American democracy.
