Liz Cheney Has Zero Fucks to Give Thing #45 and The GQP

Gosh, with her own party coming for her for not perpetuating The Big Lie, as well as the smaller lies the GQP likes to spread these days, one might think Liz Cheney would head back to Wyoming, did and hole, crawl in, and pull the hole in after her.

But, no, she won’t, because Liz Cheney has bigger balls than any other Republican out there; sure, Mittsy speaks, but he cowers when he does it; Adam Kinzinger speaks out, too, but without the passion of Liz. It speaks volumes, though, that the party doesn’t condemn Romney or Kinzinger, two men, as harshly as it condemns a woman.

Speaking from the House floor last night, Cheney took a fiery last stand, warning that former twice-impeached, one-term loser, and traitor, had created a threat that this country has never seen before: a president who “provoked a violent attack” on his own Capitol “in an effort to steal the election,” and then continued to spread his election lies; Cheney said:

“Remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar. I will not participate in that. I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy. As the party of Reagan, Republicans have championed democracy, won the Cold War, and defeated the Soviet communists. Today, America is on the cusp of another Cold War, this time with communist China. Attacks against our democratic process and the rule of law empower our adversaries and feed communist propaganda that American democracy is a failure. We must speak the truth, our election was not stolen, and America has not failed.”

Damn. This is the literal definition of Zero Fucks.

This morning her own party is condemning her for, wait for it, it’s rich, spreading the Democratic ideals. You know, truth, justice, free, fair elections, punish traitors.

These days those are not the ideals of the RepubliQAnon party.

And I will say it again, I don’t care for Liz Cheney; I disagree with her on nearly everything’; but she deserves mad props for speaking out when her own party is gunning for her.

She could rent out her balls to some of the men in the Republican Party!

And Miss Lindsey, taking her cue from Bill and Melinda Gates, says the party “can’t grow without _rump.” They all make me sick. They’ll never realize it’s all about one madman’s ego. They really still think he cares about them and the country.

She's one of the few Republicans left with any integrity whatsoever.

liz's old man SHOULD be in jail for war crimes! I hope she continues to speak out.

Mistress Maddie said...

I will say I don't agree with all her views, but agree she has a huge set of balls and won't take shit from the "old stanch boys club" So kudos too her for that. If she were a man they wouldn't be attacking her like this. You don't see them going after Adman Kinzinger like this whom I also like.

And if they try to have her removed totally...that is not right. What about the people who voted her in? Your going against the people that elected her in. I hope she sticks to her guns and blasts their tired old crazy asses. Anyone that doesn't want to kiss and pat Trump's crooked fat ass is alright in my book. Too many GQP are still walking around with brown stains on their nose and lips.

I too do not care for Liz Cheney's beleifs but you have to admire her fro standing up to the GQP

Steve Reed said...

I wouldn't join her fan club but I admire her integrity on this issue. Too many Republicans are afraid of being challenged from the right.

VRCooper said...

I agree...I don't care for the gal's politics...But I do give her props...I am amazed, not really, that the GOP has been turning the ship, for a while, in the direction they are going...Following a man that has a horrid history, lost the House and Senate, the presidency, impeached twice, killed thousands due to his failure to respond to COVID...And this is the person they want to hitch their wagon to...Stupid sometimes surprises me...

Sadie J said...

I'll never agree with her on policy, but we need more like her if we as a nation are ever going to move forward. I fear there are very few, though.

Agnes Goldberg-DeWoofs said...

Im not a fan of Liz Cheney, but find it very rude and unacceptable by how she is being treated when all she did was not support trump the over turn of the election results and speak her mind.

Shows you how things will be if the republicans get back in power. Say anything against them- we will be arrested.

Bob said...

She could, though I doubt many men in the GOP would know what to do with them.

Miss Lindsey is a lost cause. Thing #45 has dirt on her.

Sadly, you're right.

I don't like her--I loathe her criminal father--but I like that she has guts in a party that lacks such a thing.

Sadly, they removed her today, and yet she said she will continue to speak out on Thing #45. Zero fucks!!!

That's the only thing I like about her.

The GQP has become spineless.

They're too afraid of a man that lost the House, the Senate and the White House, That shows what fools they are!

If something happens and Thing #45 gets indicted for something, we may see a shift, but it's just hypocrisy turning the other cheek.

Scary times; I also like how the GQP is less rude to Romney and Kinzinger, who've both spoken out, but save the vitriol for a woman.

Is so typical.
So very, very typical.

Moving with Mitchell said...

I can't believe how much respect I have for Liz Cheney and her balls (sorry to use the phrase, since why is it when a woman is strong and tough we say she has balls?), given how little respect I usually have for Liz Cheney and her politics!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

The GQP is sooooo corrupt, embroiled and aimless that Liz Cheney sounds sane. Absolutely bonkers.
I'm glad she let them HAVE IT. She also said she won't rest and will keep trying to free the Repugs of Cheeto's malignant influence. Can you imagine something worse than the greedy, treacherous GOP?


Michael said...

Liz Cheney has guts to speak out against the willingness of the GOP to simply follow Trump down this slimy hole. Maybe some moderate Republicans should form a new party.

Dave R said...

One thing's for certain, she's got bigger balls then most Republicans in the House.
