Hahaha. That is hilarious. I will look up this America First Caucus and find out what they are all about.  Thank you!

The America First Caucus party platform. What part is Nazi? Borders? Regulated immigration? I suppose Nazis believe in those.

Column: When idiots in Congress decide to corner the Anglo-Saxon market

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga) proposed creating an "America First" caucus that would promote "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions." (Associated Press)

 

Marjorie Taylor Greene was readying her assault, like that legendary Anglo-Saxon warrior Canute the Great at Assandun. The QAnon-friendly first-term Georgia congresswoman, who was banned from any committee assignments shortly after she was sworn in, was poised to launch her “America First Caucus” with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist so odious that his siblings cut an ad in 2018 endorsing his opponent.

 

They were going to be legends. But they turned out to be “cucks,” an insult that crowd loves to use.

 

Punchbowl News got ahold of the “America First Caucus Policy Platform,” a seven-page document detailing what these modern-day knights of the roundtable would fight for. Contrary to a lot of the hysteria, it doesn’t read like “Mein Kampf” or “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” It reads more like what Greene said it was — a “staff-level draft proposal” based on some Trumpian boilerplate.

 

Most press accounts focused on two passages as proof the American First Caucus was soaked in white supremacy. First, America should have an immigration policy consistent with “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions.” Second, our infrastructure should reflect “the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture.”

 

That was enough for most Republicans, as well as the press and the Democrats, to rain fire on the whole project. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy insisted the GOP is not the party of “nativist dog whistles.” This point might strike some observers of the last four years as a bit of a surprise.

 

“Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil,” tweeted Rep. Liz Cheney, the valiant leader of what might be called pre-Trump conservatism in the House. “History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate.”

 

The remarkable thing about this whole project isn’t just the racism or nativism, but its stupidity.

 

The most enduring Anglo-Saxon political institution was monarchy. Though that was hardly unique to them. The institution that was unusual was the Witan, a meeting of “wise men” or nobles whom the king would call upon for advice on important political questions. Many historians see the roots of parliamentary democracy in the Witan.

 

“It does indeed look as if the history of constitutional liberty has important beginnings in Anglo-Saxon England,” James Campbell, an Oxford professor of medieval history, has written.

 

Of course, Greene, who famously thought that Rothschilds and space lasers might have caused California’s wildfires, almost certainly does not know this — and probably none of her supporters do either.

 

And, normally, they wouldn’t need to know it. Outside of a few Whiggish historians, nobody really cares because our institutions aren’t “Anglo-Saxon,” they’re Anglo-American. And, besides, our Anglo-American inheritance owes far more to France (James Madison cribbed a lot of our Constitution’s structure from Montesquieu), the great commercial Republic of Holland, and the ancient Greeks and Romans than to King Canute or Alfred the Great.

 

My point isn’t that these professional trolls deserve the benefit of the doubt or that their critics are wrong to assume “Anglo-Saxon” is a racist dog whistle. Any project Gosar (who is of Slovenian and Basque descent) is part of deserves no benefit of the doubt. My point is that these people are idiots.

 

Perhaps the staff-level poltroons who wrote this platform meant to say “Anglo-American.” Or maybe they spent too much time in Internet chat rooms where “Anglo-Saxon” is flung about like so much poo at the monkey house.

 

And they’re not just idiots. They’re also cowards. The whole schtick of this recrudescent nativist crowd is its alleged willingness to fight. Fight whom? Everyone: the establishment, the media, the deep state, the socialists, and George Soros.

 

In the fevered minds of Greene & Co., people they think accommodate the architects of demographic “replacement theory” are akin to spineless “cucks.”

 

Of course, it was Greene who backed down, whining that “the scum and liars in the media are calling me a racist by taking something out of context." She has since announced that she wouldn’t be launching her America First Caucus after all.

 

Ignorance is often the author of cowardice. If Greene and her fellow travelers seriously believed in anything, they’d know how to defend their claims. But when confronted with criticism from McCarthy, Cheney and the media, they surrender like meek peasants before a feudal lord, unable to defend anything that can’t be reduced to a hashtag or an applause line delivered to a crowd of people who don’t know anything, either.

" A known Nazi!"   :lol:

 

I don't know MTG but I know her accusers so I'm 99% sure defending her will be easy and maybe interesting.  The first accusation was that she thought Jewish space lasers were burning California. Sure enough her unedited tweet proved she said no such thing. It was almost as crazy as the "drink bleach hoax". Then there was "She's harassing poor victim David Hogg!" She kept her distance and asked precious Davey a few polite questions over 40 seconds which he rudely ignored.  Now she's a Nazi.  Why is she a Nazi?  Did she say she is one?  If media claim she is one, then she almost most certainly is not one. What do you have? Tell me what she did. Give me her full statement or video. Don't bother with a link to a nitwit spinning fantasies.

I literally gave you proof twice.  You refused to, or don't have the intestinal fortitude to respond to it.

 

You're trolling, intentionally i might add and it's quite evident.

 

Honestly, it's rather sad and pathetic how adults stoop to this level of attention seeking.  Go to a shelter, adopt a cat if you want attention.

It is evident and completely plain you've NEVER suffered hardship or adversity in your life.

 

Trauma makes people STRONGER, it tends to make people want to speak about it, to let people know it gets better that they are not alone.

 

If he was traumatized he is acting entirely rationally like any adult of sound mind and or body would.

 

What is not rational, or sound is degrading the survivor of a horrific tragedy yet defending the offal that intentionally followed and derided him while screeching about wanting attention and to be heard.

 

I think we're about done here, I have another page left of your responses but I will have to ignore you entirely before the parrot gets one or both of us

Of course you can't see it.  Because you won't look for it.  When you do and find it you immediately claim bias or "it's just a misunderstanding"

thanks for this.

 

how do you protect kids from shootings? more guns! i imagine her idea of a safe school is to arm every staff member with a gun.

 

how long would it take for a teacher to abuse thier new power? "listen, billy. look at me, now look at my gun. don't push me."

 

also the lasers is pretty neat, and entirely possible for a laser from space to cause a fire. it didn't happen here.

:lol: Polite questions......are you sure you actually watched it?

 

There was nothing "polite" about what she was doing and her questions were loaded. (In the vein of "When did you stop beating your wife?") Ignoring her was not only the right thing to do, it was the only thing to do...

 

Also, you seem to be making it out as if "precious" Davey (what childish characterization, BTW) is some kind of attention seeker, but....rewatch the video and ask yourself who arranged for the encounter to be recorded? I'll give you a hint: It wasn't "precious Davey"....

I don't know what I've missed. I've responded to the laughable space laser fantasy that was pinned on her, the eye rolling "assault" of Hogg, and even your allies are posting articles refuting that this caucus thing is NAZI.

 

Did you ever own a cool pair of runners? I didn't. Didn't even consider the possibility. Further, in my day, minority's like myself were mocked not pandered to. We've got it great now.

Jeez I think I've stated a few times now Hogg was fine to ignore her, what's bad is you thinking there's something wrong with asking questions. Her questions were certainly not rude, so they can be categorized as polite. I'm not a Hogg fan but the "precious" adjective is meant to be a criticism of you, not him. You think he's not a big enough boy to handle someone asking him an unscripted question? I think he is.

There was a story a couple of years back that we discussed in one of the many previous gun-related threads....

 

A school somewhere in the states had armed security for exactly the purpose of protecting against Sandy Hook type attacks. One of these guys went into the boys washroom to take a leak, but for whatever reason, took out his gun and left it on the counter. Of course, he forgot to take it with him when he left and of course, it was found by one of the kids at the school.

 

IIRC, this one had a happy ending because nobody got shot. (I think the kid was smart enough to report it to a teacher) That being said, it could have ended tragically and it's just one example of why arming every adult in the school is a bad idea.

During the election cycle there was a lot of discussion about things like the economy, immigration and of course the pandemic. The Republicans were very interested in talking about the first two....the third? Not so much....

 

This is one of the reasons that America chose correctly when it kicked Bone Spurs to the curb, but IMHO, this is the reasons that trumps (pun intended) all others:

Meh. Sometimes the only thing to call stupid opinions is "stupid".

 

If you want to maintain the MTG was "polite" in harassing a victim of a school shooting, fill your boots, but don't be surprised if the rest of the planet thinks you're either an idiot or a troll.

She did nothing but politely ask four or five questions of a rep for the anti gun lobby.  How can thinking this is not harrassment be labelled a "stupid opinion".

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga) proposed creating an "America First" caucus that would promote "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions." (Associated Press)

 

Marjorie Taylor Greene was readying her assault, like that legendary Anglo-Saxon warrior Canute the Great at Assandun. The QAnon-friendly first-term Georgia congresswoman, who was banned from any committee assignments shortly after she was sworn in, was poised to launch her “America First Caucus” with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist so odious that his siblings cut an ad in 2018 endorsing his opponent.

 

They were going to be legends. But they turned out to be “cucks,” an insult that crowd loves to use.

 

Punchbowl News got ahold of the “America First Caucus Policy Platform,” a seven-page document detailing what these modern-day knights of the roundtable would fight for. Contrary to a lot of the hysteria, it doesn’t read like “Mein Kampf” or “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” It reads more like what Greene said it was — a “staff-level draft proposal” based on some Trumpian boilerplate.

 

Most press accounts focused on two passages as proof the American First Caucus was soaked in white supremacy. First, America should have an immigration policy consistent with “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions.” Second, our infrastructure should reflect “the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture.”

 

That was enough for most Republicans, as well as the press and the Democrats, to rain fire on the whole project. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy insisted the GOP is not the party of “nativist dog whistles.” This point might strike some observers of the last four years as a bit of a surprise.

 

“Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil,” tweeted Rep. Liz Cheney, the valiant leader of what might be called pre-Trump conservatism in the House. “History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate.”

 

The remarkable thing about this whole project isn’t just the racism or nativism, but its stupidity.

 

The most enduring Anglo-Saxon political institution was monarchy. Though that was hardly unique to them. The institution that was unusual was the Witan, a meeting of “wise men” or nobles whom the king would call upon for advice on important political questions. Many historians see the roots of parliamentary democracy in the Witan.

 

“It does indeed look as if the history of constitutional liberty has important beginnings in Anglo-Saxon England,” James Campbell, an Oxford professor of medieval history, has written.

 

Of course, Greene, who famously thought that Rothschilds and space lasers might have caused California’s wildfires, almost certainly does not know this — and probably none of her supporters do either.

 

And, normally, they wouldn’t need to know it. Outside of a few Whiggish historians, nobody really cares because our institutions aren’t “Anglo-Saxon,” they’re Anglo-American. And, besides, our Anglo-American inheritance owes far more to France (James Madison cribbed a lot of our Constitution’s structure from Montesquieu), the great commercial Republic of Holland, and the ancient Greeks and Romans than to King Canute or Alfred the Great.

 

My point isn’t that these professional trolls deserve the benefit of the doubt or that their critics are wrong to assume “Anglo-Saxon” is a racist dog whistle. Any project Gosar (who is of Slovenian and Basque descent) is part of deserves no benefit of the doubt. My point is that these people are idiots.

 

Perhaps the staff-level poltroons who wrote this platform meant to say “Anglo-American.” Or maybe they spent too much time in Internet chat rooms where “Anglo-Saxon” is flung about like so much poo at the monkey house.

 

And they’re not just idiots. They’re also cowards. The whole schtick of this recrudescent nativist crowd is its alleged willingness to fight. Fight whom? Everyone: the establishment, the media, the deep state, the socialists, and George Soros.

 

In the fevered minds of Greene & Co., people they think accommodate the architects of demographic “replacement theory” are akin to spineless “cucks.”

 

Of course, it was Greene who backed down, whining that “the scum and liars in the media are calling me a racist by taking something out of context." She has since announced that she wouldn’t be launching her America First Caucus after all.

 

Ignorance is often the author of cowardice. If Greene and her fellow travelers seriously believed in anything, they’d know how to defend their claims. But when confronted with criticism from McCarthy, Cheney and the media, they surrender like meek peasants before a feudal lord, unable to defend anything that can’t be reduced to a hashtag or an applause line delivered to a crowd of people who don’t know anything, either.

This article supports the "not a nazi" narrative that I assumed would be true when I looked into it. Thanks
