The chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is chiding the crowd of enthusiastic Trump supporters who chanted “send her back” regarding Somali refugee Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at a rally in North Carolina this week.
“There’s no place for… ‘send her back,’” said Rep. Tom Emmer, who leads the NRCC. “I disagree with that completely.”
While Emmer may criticize the patriotic exuberance of Trump’s supporters, he is careful not to condemn the President himself.
“There’s not a racist bone in this president’s body,” Emmer told journalists at an event hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. “What he was trying to say is that if you don’t appreciate this country, you don’t have to be here.
Emmer believes that Trump being on the ballot will allow ‘Never Trumpers’ to vote against the President while supporting down-ticket Republicans, which will help the GOP as a whole. He indirectly blames Trump for losses during the mid-term elections in 2018.
“The last election we heard a lot of people, especially in suburban seats, that were going in, they wanted to vote against the president and all they had was to vote against our guys,” Emmer says. “This time they get a choice.”
Emmer does admit some fault for the 2018 elections, believing that he and other GOP leaders failed at defending themselves adequately on the issue of health care.
“We never explained to the American people that there was no Republican that would ever advocate for eliminating coverage of pre-existing conditions,” Emmer says. “I just think we did a very poor job of it.”
While Emmer may not approve of the crowd’s reaction toward Omar, he offers some strong words of his own for her and her Congressional colleagues Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Ayanna Pressley (D-IL), commonly referred to as “The Squad.”
“This is not a squad. This is an army of socialists,” Emmer says, calling them “The New Red Army” citing the fact that dozens of Democrats have signed on as co-sponsors for the Green New Deal that would essentially legislate totalitarian communism in the U.S.
“We’re going to be aggressive. We’re not going to back off on that,” he says.
They will be aggressive, but not too aggressive. Omar has been widely accused of immigration fraud, allegedly marrying her own brother in order to receive a green card under fraudulent pretenses.

However, attacking her based on these allegations is considered off-limits and unacceptable by the Republican Party establishment, who wants to be able to control the narrative heading into next year’s election cycle.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
