Conservatives, specifically TEA Party Conservatives, are being attacked from all directions. No surprise Democrats have increased their attacks against Conservatives, but the Republicans are now openly trying to destroy Conservatives. Steve Cohen (D) made a recent statement that pretty much covers the talking points from the Democrats:
For several years now TPATH, as well as others, have written about the GOP RINO establishment’s behind the scenes, not so stealth attacks on not just the Tea Party and Conservative movements but individual leaders of those various organizations.
This past week, as well as several weeks earlier, the battle for the Republican Party has come front and center as the weasels have shed their costumes of Patriot clothing and donned the garb of General Benedict Arnold. They have declared open warfare on conservatives and constitutionalists. The purge which has been going on since the beginning of the grass roots movement, has now been taken front and center.
This new found courage has risen from their collusion with the
leftists, communists and the criminal main stream media. They believe
the American people have been defeated and now its time to destroy the
last vestiges of resistance. Starting with Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and any
elected official with grass roots ties. (Conservative News and Views, hat tip Frederick William Dame)
The above article goes on to discuss the history of the relationship between the two parties, noting: The dirty little secret is that there really is very little difference
between the Democratic Party and those who run the GOP establishment.
Those in comfortable positions of power and authority in the Republican Party are like happy little piglets slopping around the barnyard swill, joyfully licking up scraps doled out to them by the Democrats and the news media. ...
Oh life was just wonderful there in the slop pit of politics.
Then came the Constitutionalists, the true conservatives, the Tea Party movement.
How dare they interfere?
How dare they?
The war has been openly and clearly declared by the GOP. It is time for Conservatives to take this seriously and fight back. How?
It is time to take it to the Republican establishment, the way they have been taking it to us, the true Americans. Not by starting or supporting a third party. But by not supporting RINO’s, anytime or anywhere.
The Tea Party movement has been fighting the left on the open front and the progressives from behind our lines. The Tea Party has looked for and supported constitutional candidates and “primaried” those with voting records which have proven to be detrimental to America. Where we failed to win a primary, it had always been our objective to then vote for the RINO over the Democrat. Its clear, that must stop and it must stop, now!
Allowing the GOP to trash conservative candidates, not support them and even work against them and having the Tea Party support their candidates in the general elections is tantamount to entering an axe fight without an axe. We have lost arms, legs and sustained much damage. It is now time to return the favor. Sharpen our axes and bring them to the party. So to speak. (read more)
The GOP has always counted on Conservatives to vote for their guy when push came to shove. Perhaps they need to lear a new lesson. Perhaps we also need to speak with our cash. Cut the GOP off financially.
