Republicans are not ashamed to hide their public partnership with Nazis and fascists. There are no real penalties anymore, but there are tangible benefits to voting down a bill that would make life harder for a part of their base.
It’s amazing, but it really isn’t. Mainstream Republicans are so tied to MAGA that they can’t get past the MAGA movement, and the MAGA movement is so tied to Nazis, fascists, and white supremacists that MAGA can’t get past the latter. So when a bill comes along that forces the military to find and root out these people, every Republican in the House votes against it. These people are part of the base and it’s not that controversial these days (they have to believe), so – no limit.
from Weekly newspaper:
The House approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to force government officials to prepare a report on cracking down on white supremacist and neo-Nazi activity in the police and military, even though every Republican voted against the measure .
The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Brad Schneider, passed on Wednesday by a partisan vote of 218 to 208. All 208 votes against the amendment came from House Republicans.
The Schneider Amendment requires the FBI, DHS and Secretary of Defense to release a report outlining ways to combat white supremacist and neo-Nazi activity in uniformed services and law enforcement agencies.
The slow march continues with a cautious but clear acceleration of open fascism based on white supremacy, exploiting whites’ fear of being a minority in the country they own.
This has always been the root of the MAGA movement. Trump hates liberal human rights stances as much as hidden Republicans and encourages them to come out in public. It’s not hidden. It’s part of a sick and dangerous morality and identity.
History tells us that these movements never end well. once.
