For years, GOP figures have decried the “cancel culture” of the left, insisting that they were trying to enforce fascist policies restricting the freedom of speech if they called out another person’s racism or just a failure to fact-check.
In fact, that’s exactly what Liz Cheney (R-WY) has done in recent weeks; she’s called out her Republican colleagues for failing to fact-check Donald Trump’s lies about a stolen election before supporting them. For that, her party ousted her from leadership.
Following the vote to strip her of her position, Cheney was asked if Trump had a chance to become president again in four years. Cheney promised to make sure that would never happen.
‘I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said. “We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution and I think it’s very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.’
Even those on the left who fully disagree with everything Cheney has ever stood for recognize that what happened in the Republican Party on Wednesday is about so much more than the congresswoman who refused to go along with The Big Lie. It’s about Trump’s complete takeover of the GOP and what that means for the future of not only the GOP, but the country itself.
