In today’s GQP, one must kiss the ring of the big Orange Ass, continue the ‘Big Lie,’ embrace White Supremacy, and never vote with the Democratic Party on anything, even if that legislation benefits the country as a whole. If one steps out of the bunker and goes rogue, the powers that be in this destructive cult will vote to no longer recognize your existence.
That’s exactly what happened to Rep. Liz Cheney Saturday evening.
The 31-29 vote in Buffalo, Wyoming, by the state party central committee followed votes by local GOP officials in about one-third of Wyoming’s 23 counties to no longer recognize Cheney as a Republican.
This isn’t Ms. Cheney’s first rodeo with ‘the big tent’ party leaders in Wyoming. In February, the Wyoming GOP central committee voted overwhelmingly to censure Cheney, Wyoming’s lone U.S. representative, for voting to impeach Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Cheney is now facing at least four Republican opponents in the 2022 primary including Cheyenne attorney Harriet Hageman, whom Trump has endorsed. Hageman in a statement called the latest state GOP central committee vote “fitting,” the Casper Star-Tribune reported.
