the GOP never learns
if I was a congressman I would probably just abstain
say that it's a meaningless virtue signal vote
but I don't think I would have the balls to vote "no" on condemning white nationalism
it would risk taking me out of power
with the benefit of *slightly* moving the Overton Window
If I was a congressman, I think my main focus would be to just lay low, don't say anything too controversial, and try to get away with passing as much good legislation as possible
I'd introduce immigration bills and make up bullshit post hoc rationalizations for why I support it.
"oh I think we need to cut immigration to reduce overpopulation"
let someone who doesn't have a position to lose do the proselytizing
Far leftists are actually pretty smart and don't fall for huwyte taqqiyya
Note how the wording of the resolution reduces politics to a binary choice between "welcoming immigrants from across the globe" and "white supremacy"
ya but most people aren't far leftists so who cares
My average conservative constituent would be like "oh cool he's stopping us from getting overpopulated"
Just remember 2/3 of Congress attend AIPAC
Yeah, yeah I am sure you would have done so much better
well, my point kind of is opposite
my point is that I probably *wouldn't* have done much better than the guys virtue signalling
I wouldn't go up there and be a hero
Our people need heroes
Too many Congress people just want to lay low and stay in office, I'd rather just have one term and actually get something done
No, we don't need people martyring themselves when there's other ways to make themselves useful
This is how we end up with career congressmen
The boomer anti-racism chicanery/taqiyya isn't aimed at leftists but Nationalists who need permission or cover.
@StevePines -WA That's a valid point. They can't take the lay low stuff *too* far, they have to do *something*.
Waiting for useful congressmen to do useful things....
Any day now
Steve King is more useful in Congress than as a nobody. He needs to be more careful about who he talks to and to not make tactless statements to the media
@TMatthews Ya, exactly. That's why I'm saying we really don't need people martyring themselves when they could be doing something useful. There's no shame in keeping your mouth shut when you have to.
I agree with @Jacob, for now.
The rhetoric from the right should be "democrats are anti-white, anti-family, anti-men, etc" which you can say while claiming to only want equal opportunity. Tucker Carlson does this quite well.
Some of you younger guys may not remember this, but in 2002 the GOP forced their own Senate Majority Leader, Trent Lott from Mississippi, to resign from his leadership position because he had the audacity to say at Senator Strom Thurmond’s 100 year birthday party that had Thurmond won the Presidency in 1948, America wouldn’t have so many problems.
Thurmond ran as a Dixiecrat, which was pro-segregation, but it was obvious that Lott was just praising a 100 year old man whom he had served with in the Congress for decades.
i've never wanted to see the GOP crash and burn so quickly
they intentionally block out youth participation while the left is recruiting in grade school
Yup. The Allsup affair and this cuckSignal vote are related
i'm so pissed i called scalise's office just to complain about their boomer tactics of losing with grace
Without the Goose you Lose
@TMatthews definitely. Tucker sounded believable when he was saying "we don't want identity politics." I almost could remember the time when it was possible to get along with the Coalition of the Alien
The gop sure loves to lose
It is still a good thing we have Trump... but we really have a four/five party system masquerading as two.
Dems: Neoliberals, Progressives, Browns
Repubs: Neocons, and the MAGA/Nationalists
Republican officials have a different idea of winning than we do. For them, winning means keeping their comfy offices in DC. For us, it means helping out people
There is barely any difference between the Neoliberals and Neocons
