Republicans aren’t ashamed to cover an open partnership with Nazis and fascists. There isn’t a actual penalty anymore however a tangible profit to voting down a invoice that will make life harder for part of their base.
That is gorgeous, and but it truly isn’t. Mainstream Republicans are so tied to MAGAs that they can not cross the MAGA motion, and the MAGA motion is so tied to Nazis, fascists, and white supremacists that the MAGAs can’t cross the latter. And so when a invoice comes up that compels the army to seek out and root out these folks, each single Republican within the Home votes in opposition to it. These individuals are a part of the bottom, and it’s not all that controversial as of late (they need to consider), so – no limits.
The Home has authorized an modification to the Nationwide Protection Authorization Act to compel authorities officers to organize a report on combating white supremacists and neo-Nazi exercise within the police and army, regardless of each Republican voting in opposition to the measure.
The modification, sponsored by Rep. Brad Schneider, was handed in a 218-208 party-line vote on Wednesday. All 208 votes in opposition to the modification got here from Home Republicans.
The “Schneider Amendment” known as for the FBI, the Division of Homeland Safety, and the Secretary of Protection to publish a report that units out methods to fight white supremacist and neo-Nazi exercise within the uniformed providers and legislation enforcement companies.
The gradual march continues with cautious however readily obvious acceleration to open fascism primarily based upon white supremacy, taking part in on white fears of changing into a minority in what they see as a rustic they personal.
That is and all the time was the foundation of the MAGA motion. Trump hated the liberal place on human rights as a lot because the hidden Republicans did and inspired these folks to come back out within the open. It isn’t hidden. It’s a part of a sick and harmful ethic and id.
Historical past teaches that these actions by no means finish effectively. Ever.
