Now that Buffalo shooter Patrick Gendron’s 180-page “manifesto” and his 678-page online diary are public knowledge, Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) unashamedly used his crazed rantings as a tool to attack fellow Republicans, especially former President Donald Trump and his followers. She tweeted on Monday:
The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.
When Trump learned of her tweet and learned further that she has rejected efforts by Democrats on her January 6 committee to broaden its investigation to include Capitol Hill security instead of focusing primarily on Trump’s alleged role in that incident, he called her “a crazed lunatic.” According to The Washington Post, he said, “From what people tell me, from what I hear from other congressmen, she’s like a crazed lunatic. She’s worse than anyone else. From what I’ve heard she’s worse than any Democrat.”
She may be crazy, but she’s not stupid. For years, Democrats have been rejoicing over the changing demographics in the United States that appear, on the surface at least, to favor the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s known in some circles as the “Great Replacement,” a combination of mass immigration (both legal and illegal) and a decline in the birth rate among the white population, which is reducing the percentage of whites in the United States while increasing the percentage of non-whites.
It’s a phenomenon that left-wing Democrats have celebrated for years, as The New American has noted. As Julian Castro said in 2008 while mayor of San Antonio, “In a couple of presidential cycles … on election night, you’ll be announcing that we’re calling the 38 electoral votes of Texas for the Democratic nominee for president … because of the demographics.”
Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin remarked, “The demographics of America are not on the side of the Republican Party.” Senator Joe Biden said, “Folks like me … will be an absolute minority … fewer than 50% of the people in America … will be of White European stock. That’s not a bad thing.”
But when Republicans such as former House Speaker Newt Gingrich or Representative Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) point this out, it’s a sign, according to Cheney, of “white supremacy” and “white nationalism,” and even “anti-semitism.”
Said Gingrich in August 2021:
I think what’s hard for most of us to accept is that the anti-American left would love to drown traditional classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of rule of law, and I think that when you go and you look at the radical left this is their ideal model is to get rid of the rest of us because we believe in George Washington, we believe in the Constitution, and you see this behavior over and over again.
One of Elise Stefanik’s campaign ads said:
Radical Democrats are planning their most aggressive move yet: a PERMANENT ELECTION INSURRECTION.
Their plan to grant amnesty to 11 MILLION illegal immigrants will overthrow our current electorate and create a permanent liberal majority in Washington.
What’s “good for the goose” ought to be “good for the gander,” as the saying goes. But not for Cheney, who continues with her ongoing vendetta against the former president, using facts twisted to reflect badly on him and his followers.
