Ex-Republican BLISTERS Madison Cawthorn and GOP: stupidity, narcissism

Last edited Sun Aug 29, 2021, 02:25 PM - Edit history (3)

Madison Cawthorn leads stupidity, narcissism behavior for new GOP party

Stupidity, narcissism, contempt of science and/or facts, and unbridled self-centered behavior have emerged as the preferred behavior of the 'New Republican' Party (cult) or at least a vocal portion. The August 7 Citizen Times front page featured a story, 'Protesters attempt school board coup,' which turned my stomach and made me fearful of what kind of world my children and grandchildren will be inheriting.

The poster boy for both stupidity as an art form, and the New Republican Party, Madison Cawthorn was featured prominently in the story of protesters seizing control of a school board meeting, claimed to have recalled the existing school board and instated themselves as the new school board members (Buncombe County Schools attorney Dean Shatley said 'unequivocally' that the legal school board is still in office).

Hard to believe that one could find a single sane adult to participate in an illegal mob action that would directly lead to putting their children’s lives in jeopardy; but that is exactly what transpired. Our District 11, U.S. Representative Madison Cawthorn has sworn to uphold the Constitution and rule of law. This meeting did neither.

How people can flout their ignorance of the science that shows vaccines and masks beat COVID is unintelligible, and I will never understand it. The current figures show virtually all new hospitalizations and deaths are among the unvaccinated; and ALL students under 12 are unvaccinated. Why fight to expose your children to health hazards up to and including death? Our laws require other vaccinations to attend school, our laws require us to wear clothes to cover our genitalia, our laws require us to register/insure motor vehicles and have a drivers license to drive, etc. There are laws, regulations and restrictions across all walks of life that we adhere to, to build safe communities. Why pick on COVID vaccines to protest? Why not walk around naked to protest government’s right to impose 'arbitrary' regulation?
………..

Although I was a firm supporter of the Republican Party from 1972 through 1999, I changed my party registration to 'No Party' in 2000 and have remained an Independent since. At age 18 I was a 'Rockefeller Republican,' believing in a social safety net for my fellow citizens along with the fiscal responsibility to pay for it. Over the next 28 years, I witnessed the GOP gutting the social safety net and losing any sense of fiscal responsibility…..

1. If you use the "excerpt" button, people won't assume that you are the person who wrote this.

2. It should also have a link to the opinion piece

and the OP should trim down the number of paragraphs.

9. No need to get worked up over anything that happens here,

particularly if you are on heart meds. Please take care of yourself first.

I occasionally go over four paragraphs if the main point of a thread doesn't appear earlier or if the material either isn't copyrighted, there is a Creative Commons license, or the site provides permission to republish. I know that you've been here awhile and know the rules so I understand that it was an unintentional oversight.

7. Rockefeller Republicans

Were reasonable people you could have a decent discussion with and could find compromise. The only Rockefeller who's been in office on recent years is a Democrat.
