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.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffed From Democratic Convention, While RINO John Kasich Will Speak
Kasich’s more of a Democrat than AOC.
Reports for plans for the Democratic National Convention indicate that progressive New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not be giving a speech for the program of events, while former Ohio Governor John Kasich- a nominal Republican- will be speaking in a primetime slot in support of Joe Biden for President.
The prioritization of Kasich over Ocasio-Cortez shows Biden’s interest in appealing to suburban affluent Republican voters, even if it comes at a detriment to turning out the Democratic base of urban millennials. The strategy could backfire significantly, especially if Ocasio-Cortez herself chooses to respond in kind and only provide lukewarm support for Biden.
Initial reports suggested that AOC would be given a primetime speaking role, only for sources close to the Bronx Democrat to correct such an assertion. It appears that AOC will instead speak in a limited capacity, in a function reflecting her role as a leader of Biden’s climate working task force.
Joe Biden may be the only individual to speak personally from the convention hall in which the event is principally located, on account of coronavirus social distancing measures. Biden campaign operatives are reportedly making “ruthless cuts” to accommodate for the digital nature of the event, forcing out many Democrats who would otherwise speak at the convention in person.
Kasich will speak on the same night as Vermont Independent socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, in a gesture that’s intended to highlight the range of Biden’s base of support.
