"People need to hold these garbage Republicans accountable."

Romney was booed at a Utah GOP convention because Romney is a Republican, which means he's not a Trumpling nor is he a Q-publican.

Romney represents the party of Reagan.

The modern Republican party is not really a party so much as it is a Trump-centered cult. They are science deniers, conspiracy theorists, seditionists, anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, birthers, nativists, secessionists, white supremacists and gun-fetishizing nut jobs.
I love that Romney appears more popular among Democrats, than he is among Republicans.

I truly hope that the Rs split into two... the conspiracists and the fiscal conservatives. If the Ds do the same, I will jump for joy. This is the only way I see this country forging ahead as the more centrist parties might actually figure out a way to work with one another and for ALL of their constituents.
Exactly what I've been saying for decades. As someone who has always opposed the corporate Neocons, nothing makes me happier to see them lose control of the party. That they're now embraced by the Dems, is just a bonus. Bernie sold out his supporters, or the Dems could have done the same.

Good to see. People need to hold these garbage Republicans accountable. It was so bad for Romney that the director had to intervene, asking the audience to "Please, show respect", but none was given.

Nice trick though by Romney. The crowd was booing as he took the stage, so he asked repeatedly "What do you guys think of Joe Biden's first 100 days?", to give the impression the crowd was booing Biden. They weren't. It reminded of the scene in Spinal Tap where they say about the guy who opened for them "He was so bad, they were still booing when we took the stage".


Cancel Cannibalism Culture much??? LOL.

Please let this continue....the QOP, will consume itself and you guys are really channeling your inner fascists by doing the following -

Loyalty tests/oaths
Central figurehead to adorate
Unlimited hypocrisy.
Banishment of those who aren't in lock step with your ideas.

Pro Tip = It didn't work in 30s/40s and it will fizzle out as soon as Disco Don leaves this plane. Donnie Jr, aka the Hair apparent, ain't got his old man's juice.

I heard he's go the inside track for 2024 -

It actually makes sense to me. The sheep don’t have original thought, they believe what they are told to, think what they are told to, and support everything they are told to. The very idea that some Rs would express displeasure with one of their own is viewed as madness that should be judged. Then the World makes sense again.
Fascist Forkin', the most useless utensil!!

As I was saying. GiNYC here on this ‘special occasion’ proving my point. Laughing and making fun of people for not blindly following every person/policy/story/etc. that they are told to simply because they have a “R” by their name. Sheep.

Exactly.

The Republican party sold their collective soul when Trump was elected. We all reaped what the Republican cowards had sown, for four almost interminable years.

Then January 6 happened. Uh oh. Hard to spin that one. Tough to apply a patina of 'botherism' to events of that day.

Mitt had better man up; he is living in a world that the establishment Republican enablers have largely created. The crazies, the reactionaries, the lunatics, the fringe people who used to hide in darkness on the edges of society have been richly emboldened. The genie is out of the bottle. There's no putting it back; not now.

Mitch McConnell is the poster boy for this tragedy. He enabled Trump's lunacy for four years, and he failed, again and again, to stand up. He mealy-mouthed his way through both impeachment trials, and then he attempted to grandstand with his self-righteous speech after Trump's second acquital.

Watching you lament the decline of the corporate Neocons is delicious. What's going on in the GOP is simply multinational corporations vs the people. That you think the GOP had any soul to sell when Trump took over is a testament to how blind you are. The people who brought us the Iraq War, and the Patriot Act have no souls.

Mitt & Mitch, are only now realizing they're not in a civil war for control of the GOP, rather they already lost the civil war for the GOP. MAGA is not one faction of the GOP, it is the GOP. It's the people.

As usual, my favorite fry man at Arby's completely whiffed on my point. In this thread, dear Fascist Forkin' I am mocking you and the rest of the Delirious Donalds for precisely what you accuse me of doing.

My goodness, he was the nominee of you party for President and so now you treat him with that type of contempt, derision and disrespect? Shame on you, except you have none. He voted his conscience to impeach him, hint he wasn't the only R Senator who felt that way, but he was the only one to be honest. Man your tent is small and the loyalty tests are coming soon my gosh, what will you do then Forkin' when some of your family members who are saner then you get carted away by Salty Galty and his cattle cars? Just remember the Munich Beer Hall Putsch wasn't successful, but they didn't stop them from coming back a few years later to really take power. I'm much more concerned about the Right Wing Crazies if someone like Josh Hawley, who is much smarter than Dump and just as shallow and vainglorious tries to be the next Dump.

I don't like everything that Manchin or Pelosi, AOC does, but I would never disrespect them and thier office as a duly elected member or the US Congress; no surprise you and the rest of the Clowns on here don't condemn it because many of you likely secretly rooted on the Insurrectionists and wished you had the balls or a hall pass from the wife to make an arse out of yourself.

You want me to get off my usually normally pithy comments and go into the deep end, then just remember this kiddo: I can keep it light and bemusing and then literally skewer you which I try to only do on "special occasions (get it)."

I will transcribe this post on these if that assist in your quest for comprehension (no charge for my favorite fascist cause that's how us socialists roll boi) -

Calling everyone a fascist now is your thing? Very “witty” indeed. Twat.
See my prior post - unlike you I can type more than a sentence of two, my Favorite Fascist.

Thanks for contributing another vulgarity to the board, exhibiting what a true Renaissance Man you are - Woo Hoo!! Also, is that the only one you know Fascist Forkin'?

Pro tip: Wash you mouth out with soap before giving a smooch to any of the women in you life for Mother's Day ❤

Ironically, for all the hand wringing by the left during the Trump admin about him being a 'fascist', the same people are actually cheering on actual signs of fascism from the Democrats.

The hallmarks of fascism are censorship/persecution of the press, domestic surveilance, censoring political dissent, nationalization of industry, federalization of the police force, militarization of government, the confiscation of wealth & disarming the public so they can't defend themselves against fascist tyranny.

It's the Dems that are calling for censorship of the press. For example, numerous Democrat affiliated groups are demanding Tucker Carlson be taken off the air, Obama had reporters physically removed from press conferences if he didn't like their questions, they're telling big tech which news stories to bury for them, they're illegally spying on reporters, and they're keeping watch-lists of reporters they deem to be political dissidents.

The Dems have embraced domestic surveillance, both legal & illegal. They've been illegally accessing the FISA & IRS databases to target political opponents, and people they deem political dissidents. They're cheering for the expansion of domestic surveillance as a way to target Trump supporters, under the guise of a war on domestic terror.

They want to nationalize the health care and insurance industries, eliminate local police forces and replace them with federal policed force, ban guns, have turned Washington DC into a military zone, and are raising taxes on people to confiscate their wealth.

Trump didn't do these things, it's the Democrats that are, and they love it.

Yes, corporatism has been replaced by populism in the GOP. I wouldn't expect you to like it.

Proof on your alleged allegations, you fascist.

Dump bared Acosta and Surroto from CNN briefings

They want to nationalize the health care and insurance industries
They want to provide access to all citizenry as does the rest of the industrialize world. Biden favors a public/private option and has said so.
, eliminate local police forces and replace them with federal policed force
Wrong - want national standardized police practices, so it is fair for all citizens. Or is it okay for more black people to die unnecessarily (hint" think before you answer this one)? The current system doesn't work and a majority of the country (we're still in a democracy still, right?) want reform. The George Floyd Policing Act calls for that and will pass with Rs voting for it as well, I predict, Tim Scott is in negotiating.
, ban guns
Red flag laws do not "ban guns", it's called common sense gun reform - it doesn't make sense to you uncommon sense - get it!!!!!!!!! HEHEHEHHEHEHE
, have turned Washington DC into a military zone
Curtesy of your Insurrection on Jan 6 - the bill is coming bucko - back on the stroll for you.
, and are raising taxes on people to confiscate their wealth.
Same as Bush's tax rate. Doesn't affect you or another Feller on here - Boo Hoo
Trump didn't do these things, it's the Democrats that are, and they love it.

Your arguments are still inane and always will be - seek help!!!

Look - parties can definitely change with time.

I think what makes this incident stand out is that Romney was the party's presidential nominee in 2012 - 9 years ago. at the 2012 republican convention, Romney had 2061 delegates vote for him - Ron Paul had 190 votes. so it was not a contested convention. Romney had clinched the nomination in May.

and now, 9 years later, he is getting booed in his home state. that is a fairly dramatic shift in less than a decade.

clearly, both parties have changed with time. the moderates have left both parties, so the Dems by default have become more liberal/progressive and the Repubs have become more conservative.

But, I would say the difference is that the Dems' changes were more organic. The Dems did not have a Trump-like figure who came in and transformed the party in such a short period of time.
Bernie and Warren certainly have helped push the Dems further to the left, but neither one of them took control of the party the way Trump took control of the Repubs.

and where we go from here...........remains to be seen.

I agree with a lot of what you say, but disagree with the change in the GOP not being organic. Ron Paul, the Tea Party, and now Trump, are all part of the same organic backlash against what the GOP had become, a party that served the will of multinational corporations, rather than the people.

Bernie had the power to take over the party, but sold his people out.

What's weird about the Democrats now fully being the party of multinational corporations, and wealthy elites, is that few on that side can see it. No matter how many times you post the data, post the campaign contributions in 2016 & 2020, or how many times you explain the irony of the Democrats defending George W Bush, John McCain, Mitt Romney, et al. Generally, they just can't see it.

When you have the entirety of Wall St, the tech oligarchs, the corporate media, and corrupt intel community, you are not the "resistance" and you're not the party of the working man.

The Dem change wasn't organic. By the time Obama left office, the Dems had gone off the deep end with racial obsession - because it worked brilliantly. That party looks absolutely nothing like it did in the era of B. Clinton et al; the party I sometimes voted for. The Democratic Party was obsessed with race prior to civil rights and is now re-obsessed with it. Thank you Obama.

Many people have a natural gag reflex to the woke-fascist-state capitalism-race baiting trend the Dems are now on. Even former Dem voters. That reflex started before Trump and he rode that wave as being the first to fight back strongly where former milquetoast country club Republicans like Romney would not. That's changing.

Yes the party of the aggrieved (LMAO) isn't going to take it any more and since this they can't win an intellectual debate or the ballot box., they resort to thuggery (good luck with that as long-term strategy Faux Birk, as you will continue to hemorrhage suburban mothers, who care most about peace for their family. But keep planting that flag, as yours is the last generation who will literally die on that hill; Father Time wins all the time.

Kids mid-20s and younger care about fairness and inclusivity much more than any generation since their counterparts in the 60s; I know them well, as my zip code has one of the highest % of them per capita and several live in my building. You're like Channing Tatum pulling up to school in a muscle car in 22 Jump Street and all the kids are driving Priuses - your and the Old White Fellers era has passed like bad Taco Bell gas bro.

When you couple that with the changing racial demographics and Dems more aggressive racial outreach, you're doomed to whiff. Dump became the first Prez to lose his spot and both houses of congress in a first term - wow, so scary.
The adults are back in charge, so watch and learn Neidermeyer.
