MAGA Fascists cannot upset their White Christian Nationalist crazy base.
Newsweek reports, Full List of 26 Republicans Who Refused To Denounce White Supremacy:
In a letter to chairman Kentucky Rep. James Comer, ranking Democrat Jamie Raskin urged all Republicans to join committee Democrats in signing a draft pledge denouncing “white nationalism and white supremacy,” as well the use of related conspiracy theories, including the “Great Replacement” theory during committee hearings. A spokesperson for the committee Republicans said the letter was an attempt to “distract” from the Biden administration’s record on border crossings.
This is not the first time that Republicans have been urged to denounce white supremacy. In 2022, when Democrats were in control of the House, a resolution was brought forward in the wake of a racist mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, to condemn “in strongest terms” the great replacement theory, a far-right claim that white Americans are purposely being replaced as the dominant race in the country by minorities and immigrants for political gain.
Raskin said that during previous meetings discussing immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, Republican lawmakers expressed “dangerous and conspiratorial” rhetoric which echoed the “racist and nativist tropes” peddled by white supremacists and far-right extremists.
In his letter, Raskin said the GOP now has another opportunity to “take a public stand against the deliberate amplification of dangerous racist rhetoric that has had deadly consequences in this country” and arrives as the GOP-led House looks to further scrutinize the Biden administration’s handling of illegal immigration.
While not mentioning them by name, Raskin gave examples of how Republican committee members Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Chip Roy and Josh Brecheen, have previously described the illegal immigration at the southern border as an “invasion.”
Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar also asked whether Democrats were “changing our culture” with their border policies, which Raskin said is akin to the far-right claim that white Americans are purposely being replaced as the dominant race in the country by minorities and immigrants for political gain.
This douchebag thinks he is representative of “white supremacy”? Failing badly to make your case.
Newsweek has contacted several Republicans on the House Oversight Committee for comment, via email.
The letter was signed by Raskin and the other 20 Democrat members of the House Oversight committee. All 26 Republicans refused to sign the letter.
