The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is using the anti-white ethnic slur “Karen” to malign Republicans angry with their endless annoying spam texts begging for money.
The NRCC singled out Townhall commentator Kurt Schlichter for posting the following tweet:
Hey @NRCC – WTF is wrong with you?
Stop this. Do it now. pic.twitter.com/BTQ3bnCU4q

Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out their use of an ethnic slur in denigrating their own constituents who are expected to put them into office in November:
Anyone know why the NRCC is using ethnic slurs? https://t.co/he7Au7yZ0e

Twitter users were equally perplexed and angered by the haughty and disrespectful response from the NRCC.
“You’d raise even more with texts that don’t cause a big chunk of the base to reply STOP because they’re insulted by the tone of the texts. The base is right about this. There’s enthusiasm to donate but messaging can be much better,” wrote user @robbystarbuck in response.
“I always assumed the GOP machine had nothing but contempt for their voters and benefactors and now I see it’s true,” wrote user @fenixash8 in a comment.
The @NRCC should FIRE whomever in the chain wrote and approved of that text and this response,” wrote user @TimRunsHisMouth. “Way to piss off major influencers in your base, dipsh*ts.”
“Way to get ratioed BTW. And spare me the whole “we’re electing conservatives.” I’m not an idiot. I’ve been around this town almost 25 yrs. I guarantee most of that money is going to candidates who are in fact not really conservatives, but more the puke establishment kind,” wrote user @nedryun in a tweet.
“I like and want to support @realDonaldTrump but I sadly had to unsubscribe because of the numerous and threatening text messages,” wrote user @thatx209xguy in response.
Journalist Mike Cernovich has even contended that the NRCC’s fundraising tactics are illegal:
GOP is still sending out scammy and illegal text messages.
This is one of many such examples that doesn't give you a way to opt-out.

“[B]esides getting their shortcode shutdown by the carriers, the Trump Campaign could be looking at FCC fines for each phone number texted despite not consenting to receive texts,” political consultant Sandi Fox said, echoing Cernovich’s criticism.
The NRCC’s aggressive fundraising tactics have even prompted a national push to ban text soliciting with Americans growing more peeved over the requests.
“We listen to our customers as to what they want to receive, and Morning Consult confirms what we hear every day from consumers—that political texts are often viewed by consumers as a nuisance or spam. This is one area of actual bipartisanship—74% of Republicans and 67% of Democrats. Spam is spam whether it’s an unwanted text from a bank, a concert promoter or a campaign,” wrote wireless communications trade group CTIA about the controversy.
“Seeing telecom giants prevent mass texting on a national scale is something that we’ve long expected and I would not be surprised to see that trend continue and to affect both Democrat and Republican campaigns this fall,” said Michael Luciani, CEO of The Tuesday Company.
“A machine sending millions of text messages from an unknown sender — or even a system that allows volunteers to do the same — will always raise flags and will always be vulnerable to this kind of intervention,” he added. “Even if we find a solution to this problem, it’s my opinion that legislation banning mass texting is inevitable.”
The NRCC may destroy a lucrative revenue stream for political campaigns because of their greed. It seems as if everything the GOP establishment touches eventually withers and dies.
“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.
