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.
