Cheney is on the outs as a result of she has refused to endorse former President Donald Trump’s “big lie” concerning the 2020 election being “stolen” and has blamed him for the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol that was carried out by his supporters.
“We are a big tent party. We represent Americans of all backgrounds and continue to grow our movement by the day. And unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate.”
Given that the letter is saying his determination to carry a vote that’s more likely to eject a member from celebration management for her “free thought and debate,” many on social media discovered the assertion greater than a little bit ironic, if not positively Orwellian:
“Unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate,” McCarthy says in a letter explaining why the celebration has to purge a member of the management crew for an excessive amount of free thought and debate. https://t.co/F30ndfVxoa

Kevin McCarthy, in writing to his colleagues and urging them to take away Liz Cheney as convention chair, claims that Republicans “are a giant tent celebration” and that “not like the left, we embrace free thought and debate.” He will not be being ironic.

“We embrace free thought and debate, however we kick out anybody who would not say precisely what we would like.”
I believed cancel tradition was dangerous.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says of the GOP days earlier than he pushes out Liz Cheney for daring to criticize Trump: “We are a big tent party — and unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate.”

“Unlike the left, we embrace free thought and debate*”
*except you admit the election was legit, name Biden ‘Mr. President,” or say something damaging about Velveeta Voldemort, then we take away you from management positions

Wow that’s simply brazen – they actually have doubled down on the lies, which is hardly stunning for a celebration and not using a platform.
The GOP is a cult whose solely article of religion is the Gospel of Trump.
Liz Cheney is being cancelled for heresy and the thought crime of fact.
