Republicans Address White Supremacy Allegations

Several House Republicans have responded to Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) accusation that their leadership is bolstering white supremacy.

“Both sides have some fringe members, but the 99 percent are not racist. Let’s just be candid about that,” said Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE).

“Obviously, we got some fringe elements in our party that may stand there but it’s, you know, we ought to all be speaking out against it,” said Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI).

Rep. Jefferson Van Drew (R-N.J.) said: “I don’t think that there’s anybody in the Republican Party — I honestly believe there’s nobody that wants to enable, enhance or anyway support white supremacy.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is also facing accusations of pushing the white replacement theory, but even his critics within the GOP deny that he’s at fault for the racially motivated shooting in Buffalo, New York.

“Like, I hate Tucker Carlson. I despise him. But he didn’t cause this, right?” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX). “Doesn’t mean that his rhetoric caused it. This was caused by a legitimately crazy person.”


Republicans dismiss white supremacy charge but show unease about rhetoric

  1. Alabaster Mc Gillicuddy says:

    One of the things the leftists are very adept at doing is making accusations. They come up with unsubstantiated accusations which the media runs with. The Republicans then take time to respond and deny the allegations. J. C. Watts one time Republican House Member from Oklahoma once said, “If you are explaining you are losing”. As soon as the Republicans deny the allegation the left comes up with another. It’s their way of keeping the Republicans on defense.
