Utah GOP Trashes Mitt Romney for His Spineless Vote to Convict Trump

Published

on

The impeachment saga has officially come to an end now that the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney was the only Republican to break the ranks by voting to convict Trump.

Given Romney’s establishment track record, this was to be expected.

The Utah GOP expressed its relief with President Trump’s acquittal and did not hesitate to call out Romney for his misguided vote:

“The Utah Republican Party is pleased to see President Trump completely acquitted by the United States Senate.  We appreciate the service rendered to our state by Utah’s two senators.  As a party, we strongly disagree with the vote cast today by Senator Romney.”

This response was more reasonable than conservative gatekeeper Erick Erickson’s take on the Romney vote.

Erickson tweeted, “Mitt Romney is not trying to placate the media nor does he hate Trump. He’s doing what he thinks is right. I disagree with him. The people of Utah probably agree with him. He’s a good man of high character — frankly of better character than many of those who’ll assail him.”

In the Trump era, Romney has been a massive Never Trumper.

It was the height of foolishness for Trump to listen to his advisers’ recommendation to endorse Romney in 2018.

A political figure who pals around with Democrats is not someone you can trust.

The very fact that Romney is consorting with globalist Democrats makes one wonder what Romney’s views are on traditional American values such as private gun ownership and free speech. Inquiring minds would like to know.

Nevertheless, this is a good start in exposing Romney.

From here on out, America First activists should be laying the groundwork for Romney’s defeat in the 2024 primaries.

Politicians like Romney must face pain for bad political behavior.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
