Bice: St Croix County Republican Party tells members to 'prepare for war' and to remove 'leftist tyrants' from local office

 

Don't assume the events from the MAGA insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week led Republicans around the country to tone down their political rhetoric. 

 

Just visit the homepage for the St. Croix Republican Party. 

 

Scrawled across the top of the page is the Latin phrase "Si vis pacem, para bellum," which is followed by its translation:

 

"If you want peace, prepare for war."

 

Political patriots are then encouraged to join the "digital battlefield." 

 

"It's time to stand and be counted as a conservative warrior in the on-going fight to preserve our Constitutional Republic," the homepage says.  "We need to start local by removing leftist tyrants from all local and County positions in the future April elections."

 

The website had called for "eliminating" local tyrants as of late last week, according to online archives.

There is no "salvaging" anything. They have jumped off the edge, rabid as Cujo and bragging about it. The House speeches yesterday were proof of that, there was no shame, no remorse, they embraced that ****! They're apparently acting under the (one of many) delusions that they were never really in harm's way, that THEIR people wouldn't have hurt THEM!

 

The ReTrumplican Party is a dangerous growing terrorist insurgency, think fat Taliban with fake fur, but far more dangerous because they are right here in our midst.

Now all these republicans are making statements about how they’re sorry or regret their roles in various things. Like rob robenstein and the family separation stuff.

 

**** you. No one is buying that.

1948.

 

There are a lot of things that can be said about Dwight Eisenhower, not all of them complimentary, but I don't think the descriptor you're quoting is one of them.

 

*EDIT* The story of the speech he wrote in case the D Day invasion failed has always made a powerful impression on me.

Read that, then as a thought experiment, imagine what Trump might have done.

Probably would be helpful to stop electing clowns like this.

Quote

BISMARCK — A North Dakota legislator has introduced a bill that would allow residents to designate their race as "American" on official documents. In speaking about his proposal, Rep. Terry Jones said Black Americans are "glad their ancestors were brought here as slaves" — a comment one Black social activist called extremely racist.

The GOP doesn't perceive itself in need of a fix. The wackier they get, the stronger they get. It's not about "do we make sense." It's about "Well the dems have all the compassionate, fiscally responsible, ecological votes. We have to amass everyone else."

 

And it works.

Nazi General Anton Dostler is tied to a stake before his execution by a  firing squad, 1945 - Marina Amaral

they tried the "we were only following orders" excuse once. 
Didn't work. I'm not buying the even worse "we didn't realize what was going to happen".
Against the wall!

The post-Trump Republican Party has been gutted in almost every way imaginable

 

Republicans will emerge from the Trump era gutted financially, institutionally and structurally.

 

The big picture: The losses are stark and substantial.

 

They lost their congressional power.

 

Their two leaders, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy, are hamstrung by corporate blacklisting of their election-denying members.

 

The GOP brand is radioactive for a huge chunk of America.

 

The corporate bans on giving to the 147 House and Senate Republicans who voted against election certification are growing and virtually certain to hold.

 

The RNC is a shell of its former self and run by a Trump loyalist.

 

Democrats crushed them in fundraising when they were out of power. Imagine their edge with it.

 

Sheldon Adelson, the party's biggest donor, died Monday.

 

The NRA is weaker than it has ever been, after massive leadership scandals.

 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, once controlled by rock-ribbed Republicans, also gave to Democrats in 2020.

 

Rank-and-file Republicans are now scattered on encrypted channels like Signal and fearful of Big Tech platforms.

. . . they increased their power in the House, even with Donald Trump on the ticket.  

 

. . . even after four years of Donald Trump, record numbers of people showed up at the polls to vote GOP anyway.  

 

. . . I think they control the voter suppression laws and districting in like 35 states or so.

Employees at the far-right outlet Breitbart News clashed over Trump's role in the Capitol riot, with one saying 'destroy him,' report says

 

Employees at the conservative, pro-Trump outlet Breitbart News argued over the extent of Trump's role in last week's insurrection at the US Capitol, according to The Daily Beast.

 

In internal Slack messages leaked to The Daily Beast, editors and reporters discussed and debated Trump's actions, and inactions, on January 6, with one news editor saying Trump had left the GOP "in shambles."

 

"He set us back like 10 years," the editor, Frances Martel, wrote in the messages. "We have worked so hard to promote our values, values that made him president when he hawked them, and now he does this, leaving everything in shambles? Nah, destroy him. Let it be a lesson to every other 'populist.'"

 

The criticism is noteworthy from employees of an organization that has spent the last four-plus years actively avoiding direct criticism of the president.

Donor backlash fuels GOP alarm about Senate fundraising

 

Republicans are worried that a corporate backlash stirred by the deadly Capitol insurrection could crimp a vital stream of campaign cash, complicating the party’s prospects of retaking the Senate in the next election.

 

The GOP already faces a difficult Senate map in 2022, when 14 Democratic-held seats and 20 Republican ones will be on the ballot. That includes at least two open seats that Republicans will be defending because of the retirements of GOP Sens. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Richard Burr of North Carolina.

 

But some in the party say the problem may be bigger than the map. Eight Republican senators voted to reject Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, even after the ransacking of the Capitol by a mob of Donald Trump supporters who were exhorted by the president to stop Congress from certifying Biden’s victory. Five people died in the mayhem, including a Capitol Police officer.

 

Recriminations were swift, with more than a dozen corporate giants — including AT&T, Nike, Comcast, Dow, Marriott, Walmart and Verizon — pledging to withhold donations to Republican lawmakers who voted to reject the outcome of the election in Arizona or Pennsylvania. One of those lawmakers, Florida Sen. Rick Scott, is the new chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a post that makes him the public face of the Senate Republican fundraising efforts.

 

“That’s the crux of the issue: Is this a storm that will blow over, or is ... challenging (Biden’s) Electoral College certification a scarlet ‘A’?” said Republican donor Dan Eberhart, who has contributed at least $115,000 to Senate Republican efforts in recent years.

 

But two senior Republican strategists involved in Senate races say the cumulative effect of the companies’ decisions could have a bigger impact.

 

Both of the strategists, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal party deliberations, say companies that suspended political giving are also sending a powerful signal to their executives, board members and employees about whom they should donate to. And with Scott at the helm of the NRSC, that could affect the committee’s cash flow, they said.

 

Adding to the worries, other pillars of GOP fundraising — including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Rifle Association and groups tied to the Koch brothers — can no longer be counted on for robust financial support.
