Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called out House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for allowing white nationalism following a racist shooting in Buffalo, New York, during of the weekend.
“House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy and anti-Semitism,” Cheney said. wrote on Twitter Monday. “History has taught us that what begins with words ends up much worse.”
Authorities say Buffalo gunman killed 10 people, mostly black, after posting online manifesto espousing ‘great replacement’ conspiracy’s claim that elites use immigration and other policies to marginalize white Americans in favor of people of other races.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.), the third House Republican, campaign announcements published last year which claimed Democrats were creating a “permanent election insurrection” by advocating for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
“Their plan to amnesty 11 MILLION illegal immigrants will overthrow our current electorate and create a permanent liberal majority in Washington,” one of Stefanik’s ads said.
Stefanik’s advertisements were immediately controversial. His hometown newspaper condemned the advertisements shortly after their appearance.
McCarthy, on the other hand, was reluctant to condemn his own colleagues. When Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) attended a white nationalist conference earlier this year, McCarthy criticized the event itself but said lawmakers would not faced with internal party discipline.
The Republican conference elevated Stefanik to leadership after oust Cheney for accurately saying that President Joe Biden won a legitimate victory over former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Cheney was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for instigating the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has devoted some airtime to the “great replacement” alarmism, and the concept seems to have found its way into various conservative discussion topics in one form or another.
A number of Republicans seized on the national formula shortage last week to suggest Biden is starve american babies in order to give it to migrants in federal custody at border facilities ― regardless of whether the federal government is compelled by court order (and basic human decency) to feed and water its inmates.
On Monday, Stefanik doubled down on the idea that Democrats are plotting to reshape the electorate through underhanded means.
“Democrats desperately want open borders and a massive amnesty for illegals to vote,” she said. wrote on Twitter.
