Civil war erupts in House Republican conference as Freedom Caucus turns on Liz Cheney

Under President Donald Trump, the Republican Party — and American conservatism in general — has, by and large, abandoned the pretense that they stand for any principles or ideological framework beyond being the political manifestation of white men’s grievances and prejudices.

This much was made extremely clear on Tuesday morning when the mewling toddlers in the Freedom Caucus turned their ire on Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).

Cheney is a bloodthirsty war hawk who regularly disparages the most basic of social safety net programs as “socialism” and is as staunchly “conservative” as anyone can be.

Add your name to demand an investigation into Trump letting Putin pay Taliban fighters to kill US troops!

But since she crossed the line and defended medical expert Dr. Fauci and occasionally disagreed with the president, she was publicly lambasted by the nihilistic Trump-fanatics in the Freedom Caucus during this morning’s House GOP caucus.

POLITICO reporter Melania Zanona observed the fireworks:

Make no mistake. This should not be taken as evidence that somehow Liz Cheney is a “voice of reason” in a party full of extremists; she is just as radical and devoted to the dismantling of American democracy and starting needless foreign wars as all the rest of them are.

She proved this by leaving the meeting and immediately reiterating her opposition to the election of Joe Biden and keeping Donald Trump from having another four years to destroy this country as we know it.

But it is very interesting to see how willing the selfish ingrates who make up the GOP are to eat each other alive at the slightest sign of disloyalty — a weakness prime for exploitation as the 2020 election approaches.
