House Freedom Caucus members have been having some difficult times lately. We heard from Kevin McCarthy (Republican -Calif.) who was speaking out against several members of the caucus. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) has made many mistakes and embarrassing blunders. Politico published an opinion piece claiming that the House Freedom Caucus was experiencing an “identity crisis.”
A troubling story exposes the alleged fractures in the caucus piece by Politico. It is the lead article. Reps. Lauren Boebert (R.Colo. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R.Ga. ), nearly turned a disagreement into an all-out-knockdown-drag out last month.
Politico’s March meeting recalls how Boebert was shocked that Nick Fuentes, an alt-right figure, attended an event just before CPAC in February.
According to the report, “Their conflict grew to such a degree that at least one observer feared that the Greene/Boebert back-and-forth might escalate beyond the verbal boxes match if another board Member did not step in and deescalate it,” stated a GOP lawmaker. Their members mostly avoided any criticism of Greene (R.Ariz.), or Rep. Paul Gosar. They focused their anger instead on Nick Fuentes (R.Ariz.) at the time.
Outsiders tend to group Greene and Boebert together as they are both populist conservatives who have rocked the boat. Greene is trying to win a spot on the GOP primary ballot in her Northwest Georgia district. However, many Georgia conservatives believe she will lose the primary. Boebert has clashed with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.Minn.) famously. ).
Perhaps you also remember the two legislators who shouted “Build the wall” during Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech.
Politico recalls that they both leaped to their feet during President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech to shout for a border wall. This viral photo features Rep. Byron Donalds, R.Fla. Rep. Byron Donalds (R.Fla.) is seen in this viral photo looking uncomfortable while he sits between them. Later, a video was posted in which Donalds was juxtaposed to lyrics from Stealers Wheel songs. “Clowns to my left/jokers on the right / Here you are, stuck in the middle with me. “
Republicans are very funny.
It is evident that there are differences among congresswomen
Politico reports on Boebert, a Republican from Colorado, who is disgusted at being tied to her Georgia colleague.
Boebert doesn’t like conservatives associating Fuentes.
And Boebert has problems with conservatives associating with figures like Fuentes. It’s easy to see why.
“Greene drew backlash from some members of the Republican Party for attending the America First Political Action Conference in February because Fuentes, 23, is accused of being a white nationalist by multiple groups,” reports the Washington Examiner. “At the event, he appeared to praise Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has also denied the Holocaust and expressed admiration for the Taliban’s harsh treatment of women.”
Yes, he said those things and Greene stood by his side.
Boebert is correct in principle, but if I were her, I wouldn’t want to come to blows with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Those Georgia girls can scrap.
