Camels’ Entire Bodies Are Now in the GOP Tent, and It’s No Longer Red

Written by Laurie Higgins

Over the course of the past week, it should have become obvious to all conservatives that camels, whose noses have long been welcomed into the GOP tent and sycophantically stroked, have weaseled their big hulking bodies in and are spitting all over conservatives. But they’re really RINOs who identify as camels in order to get into the tent, which is no longer red. It’s not even pink. It’s the color of the purloined rainbow.

Ironically, after the unprecedented failure of the Republican Party to take back the U.S. Senate and to secure many more congressional and gubernatorial wins during the reign of a wildly unpopular and cognitively unfit president who has created massive inflation and frightening international instability, the GOP has decided to keep on keeping on the broad road that leads to destruction. They gave the morally repugnant Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) the speakership again.

What did McCarthy do to deserve it? Did he preside over historic electoral wins? Nah, the U.S. House barely eked out a majority.

He got in because he’s Machiavellian. In 2019 he engineered the destruction of one of the U.S. House of Representative’s true conservatives and an exceptionally honorable man, former U.S. Representative Steve King, by falsely calling him a racist.

To accomplish that feat, McCarthy ran around behind the scenes like a middle school mean girl on steroids, garnering the support of spineless, duplicitous moral ciphers like Iowa’s Joni Ernst to turn on their former friend and colleague King. Nothing pleases “moderate” Republicans more than destroying the careers of conservatives.

McCarthy has proven he’s very effective at treachery. Milquetoasty smile, greasy glad hands, moral vacuity, and a heart of stone. Sounds a lot like a male version of Nancy Pelosi (R-CA).

But those are the requisite skills needed to fend off an attack from conservatives—the group McCarthy views as a greater threat to his power the Republic than Democrats. And there was a challenge to his corrupt leadership led by conservative Andy Biggs of Arizona. While Biggs lost, 31 Senate Republicans voted with him and against McCarthy. Too bad the voting is secret. American conservatives deserve to know who the quislings are.

It looks like the GOP is keeping Ronna Romney McDaniel—Mormon niece of “moderate” Republican Mitt Romney—as the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman. The RNC has long been colluding with Log Cabin “Republicans”—the largest “LGBTQ+,” allegedly Republican group in America.

Just last summer, at a “Spirit of Lincoln Gala” held at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, McDaniel gushed,

Conservatives in Log Cabin don’t just share our vision for a free, secure and prosperous America—they enrich it by adding unique perspectives to our party and recruiting even more diverse candidates and supporters to join our cause.

“Conservative Log Cabin members” is oxymoronic. No one who affirms homoerotic acts as good and/or who affirms the legal redefinition of marriage to include homoerotic relationships is conservative, which raises the question, “Why wouldn’t the RNC choose someone as chair who affirms all the positions of the Republican Party? Does anyone think the RNC would choose a chairperson who supports open borders, strict gun laws, higher taxes, or the death of the fossil fuel industry?

Conversely, does anyone think the Democratic National Committee (DNC) would choose someone as chair who holds Democrat positions on guns, immigration, energy policy, and taxes but opposes abortion and same-sex faux marriage? I suspect there would be an insurrection against Democrat leadership led by mostly violent protestors against a DINO in any leadership position.

Then just yesterday, after the pathetic showing of Republicans in the mid-term elections and the sorry spectacle of Machiavelli McCarthy winning the speakership, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that requires the federal government to recognize same-sex faux-marriages legalized in any state. And forces states to recognize same-sex faux-marriages performed in other states. It wouldn’t have passed without the help these dirty dozen Republicans:

  • Susan Collins of Maine
  • Rob Portman of Ohio (who has a homosexual son)
  • Thom Tillis of North Carolina
  • Mitt Romney of Utah (whose Mormon church supports same-sex faux-marriage)
  • Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Richard Burr of North Carolina
  • Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia
  • Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming
  • Dan Sullivan of Alaska
  • Todd Young of Indiana
  • Joni Ernst of Iowa

The U.S. House version passed in July with almost four times as many Republicans supporting it, including Illinois’ Adam Kinzinger (goodbye, good riddance) and Rodney Davis, Wyoming’s disastrous Liz Cheney, New York’s Lee Zeldin (who just lost his senatorial bid,) and GOP “rising star” Elise Stefanik.

Following this vote, uncompromising conservative, the winsome and brilliant Princeton University law professor Robert P. George posted this:

[D]oing what I can to bring about their defeat will be my number one political priority. I hope other social conservatives feel the same way. Betrayal needs to be punished, or you get more and more of it. Social conservatives should have learned this truth by now. … If trying to defeat these politicians means civil war in the Republican Party and benefits the Democrats, that is a price those of us who are social conservatives need to be willing to pay as part of a longer term strategy. The Democrats will love it, of course, and benefit from it. They will do a lot of damage that will take a long time to undue. But at a certain point it simply becomes necessary for conservatives to do what liberals and progressives, to their credit and benefit, have long done, which is to refuse to tolerate betrayal.

If there’s any doubt about the future direction of the increasingly immoderate GOP, just watch this one-minute excerpt from a Q&A with Liz Cheney at the University of Chicago, in which she expresses her unsurprising view of Donald Trump and her very surprising view of Ron DeSantis:

Cheney, a purported Republican, believes Tuesday was a very good day. RINOs, or as they prefer to identify, “moderate” Republicans oppose anyone to the right of them.

Hope for the GOP rests not with the dirty dozen or any Republican like them. Hope rests with true conservatives like U.S. Representatives Andy Biggs, Jim Jordan, Mary Miller, and J.D. Vance; U.S. Senators, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, Bob Good, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio; and governors Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott.
