Thune Compares Primaries Against GOP Senators Who Voted With Democrats to Convict Trump to Cancel Culture

Senator John Thune (R-SD), a coffee boy for Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), said that Republican voters attempting to punish senators who voted to convict former President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial are engaging in “cancel culture.”

Obviously, this man doesn’t have a clue what cancel culture is.  Nobody is saying they want them silenced, and no one is saying they don’t think they should never work again.  They are simply exercising their Constitutional right to decide who will represent them and their state, and if the majority of Republican voters feel that the seven turncoat GOP Senators who sided with the radical leftist Woke Supremacy mob Democrats to unconstitutionally try a private citizen for something he didn’t do isn’t their top choice then they have the right to let their grievances be heard and there is no better way I can think of to let politicians know they done screwed up than to vote them out of office.

“There was a strong case made,” Thune told the AP about the House impeachment managers’ arguments. “People could come to different conclusions. If we’re going to criticize the media and the left for cancel culture, we can’t be doing that ourselves.”

Not really.  The Democrat House impeachment managers lied, they altered documents, and they withheld exculpatory evidence.  In fact, legal scholars have said that had they been in a courtroom they not only would have faced disbarment but could have been charged with crimes and faced prison.

The statement from the Senate minority whip is one of the most high-profile comments on the inner turmoil going on among the Senate Republicans since earlier this week when Trump released a scathing personal statement berating McConnel. The former president called McConnell “a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack” and said, “if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again.”

Thune gave the interview to dumb down the anger among the great unwashed party faithful as a message to move on, while at the same time state and local Republican parties throughout the nation have taken action against GOP senators who sided with the Democrat lunatics to convict Donald Trump.

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) faced potential censure in his home state even though he’s said he is not seeking reelection after this term.  Many Pennsylvanian Republicans, myself include, wish he would run again just so that we can defeat him in a primary race.  Local Republican parties have already moved against Toomey who has been a real disappointment to PA Republicans for some time.  For example, Westmoreland County GOP censured Toomey while the Washington County Republican Party censured him as well.

“We did not send him there to vote his conscience.  We did not send him there to do the right thing or whatever he said he’s doing,” Washington County GOP Chair Dave Ball told KDKA. “We sent him there to represent us.”  Many DC swamp rats forget that they are elected to represent the people who elected them and not their own political ideologies or hatred for a particular president.  The facts of the trial as laid out by the Democrats were bogus resembling a Soviet Union-style rigged court.

The North Carolina Republican Party has already censured Senator Richard Burr (RF-NC) who was one of the senators who voted for conviction.  Burr’s vote to convict raised a lot of eyebrows by many in the GOP.  Burr also said he’s not going to run for reelection.

“The NCGOP agrees with the strong majority of Republicans in both the US House of Representatives and Senate that the Democrat-led attempt to impeach a former President lies outside the United States Constitution,” the state party said in a statement Monday night.

The senators who voted with Democrats to convict Trump have stood by their votes.  Burr addressed the censure head-on in a statement.

“It is truly a sad day for North Carolina Republicans,” Burr said. “My party’s leadership has chosen loyalty to one man over the core principles of the Republican Party and the founders of our great nation.”

What a joke.  The core principles of the Republican Party are the rule of law, the Constitution, and actually proving someone guilty, none of which was put on display during the trial by the Democrat impeachment managers.  For goodness’ sake, the Chief Justice did not preside because he knew the whole thing was a sham.  It wasn’t even Constitutional to try a private citizen to be removed from office when he already left office.  A majority of clowns voting the trial was Constitutional is no different from a majority of people claiming McDonald’s is gourmet food. (I love McDonald’s by the way.)

Trump said in his statement this week, “… where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great again and our policy of America first.”

On Thursday, Thune argued this point, warning that if Republicans run a lot of candidates closely-aligned with the former president then they may end up sacrificing winnable seats.  I know of 74 million American voters who would beg to disagree.

“At the grassroots level, there’s a lot of people who want to see Trump-like candidates,” Thune said. “But I think we’re going to be looking for candidates that are electable.”  What a buffoon this man is to say something like that.  Bob Dole was not electable.  John McCain was not electable.  Mitt Romney was not electable.  America First Republicans are sick and tired of having RINO candidates forced onto them and it stops now.

I think Thune sealed his own fate when he accused the party faithful of needing candidates “who don’t go off and talk about conspiracies and that sort of thing.”  Millions of Trump voters like me watched intently whistleblower after whistleblower and data experts and cyber experts testify that numerous state legislature hearings on massive amounts of election and voter fraud they witnessed and/or discovered.  There was no conspiracy theory involved.

Thune a.k.a. “Mitch’s boy” will be one of the first to be targeted for a primary by Trump if he backs his promise to do so, and we know that Donald Trump goes out of his way to keep his promises.

First it was the media that imploded and lost all of its credibility by refusing to tell the truth about, well, much of anything.  For years groups like the Media Research Center have been exposing just how biased the ‘main stream media’ is.  It’s no longer something that anyone disputes.  CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and Washington Post et al. seem to all be in the tank for the Democrat Party.  Conversely, the commentary on Fox News is heavily pro-Trump … at night at least.  I think we would agree that OAN is geared toward conservative and Trump supporting viewers.

After the media burnt all of its credibility, the federal law enforcement apperatus was the next to fall.  The botched handling of the Clinton email investigation, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, the Podesta brothers, not to mention the entire Russian collusion hoax, the FBI and DOJ have managed to lose all credibility with the American people, in my view.

The latest establishment outfit to suffer the same fate, to be unmakes for their bias in the eyes of the public, is the Commission on Presidential Debates.  Bob Dole recently came out and said that none of the so-called Republicans on the commission support Trump, according to The Hill.

This should come as no surprise seeing as thus far each ‘moderator’ has, IMHO, acted more like they are debating Trump than moderating a debate or town hall.  Steve Scully, the man picked by the commission to moderate the debate that never occurred once Tweeted an article saying ‘No, Not-Trump, Ever.’

After mistakenly sending out a public tweet, and then lying about it, saying he was ‘hacked,’ Scully has been suspended by CSPAN.

During the first debate, Fox News’ Christopher Wallace was largely criticized by Trump and his supporters for being more of a Biden activist than a moderator.

Then, in the debate that wasn’t, due to the unilateral rule change of the Commission on Presidential Debates, Trump’s dueling town hall was ‘moderated’ by Ms. Guthrie.  One need only watch a few moments of the event to see that Savannah was less of a journalist and more of an activist, IMHO.

It is my conclusion, and that of many on the right, and quite frankly, it seems to be President Trump’s assessment as well, that the COPD (Commission on Presidential Debates) is in the tank for Biden.

Still not convinced?  Have a look at what Fox News is reporting about the up coming debate’s ‘moderator:

Fox News reported:

‘All eyes are turning to NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker as she prepares to host the third and final presidential debate Thursday.

But Trump supporters who took issue with hard questioning by previous moderators like Chris Wallace and Savannah Guthrie may find themselves pining for those combative hosts after Welker is done with the president.

Welker comes from an established Democratic family — who have poured cash into party coffers, and to Trump opponents, for years.

Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone.

There was also $3,300 for Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential effort against Trump. Another $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee between 2004 and 2020.

In 2012, Welker and her family celebrated Christmas at the White House with the Obamas.

Though Kristen Welker’s party registration is not listed today, she was a registered Democrat in Washington, DC, in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004.

“Mr. President, yes or no. … have you ever worked for Russia. Yes or no?” she demanded during a confrontation in January 2019,’ feeding into the now disproven conspiracy theory that Trump is somehow Putin’s puppet.

Is that enough to convince you of her bias?  Let’s say no, that is not enough.  Everyone has political opinions, she is allowed to be a Democrat, it is just her job to keep her opinions out of her ‘journalism’ (something that is impossible and why we wear our bias on our sleeve.)

I mean, ‘come on, man’ the COPD would never let someone who had ‘tipped off’ a candidate’s campaign about a question before a ‘spontaneous’ interview…. right? WRONG.

Fox went on to explain, ‘In March 2016 Welker was busted on live television tipping off Hillary Clinton’s Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri about at least one question she planned to ask her during a post-debate interview in Michigan. At the time Clinton was locked in a fierce fight for the Democratic nomination against Sen. Bernie Sanders.’

The Post was told by a White House official that “Anyone who’s ever dealt with Welker knows she’s an activist, not a reporter. The White House press team views her the same way they would AOC or Pelosi if they walked in the office.”
