In an extraordinary bow to former President Trump, House Republicans voted Wednesday to purge GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney from her leadership post, punishing the conservative Wyoming Republican for daring to refute Trump’s lie that the 2020 election was stolen.

The decision was made by voice vote, meaning there will be no tally of the lawmakers who voted to dump Cheney, or of those who wanted her to stay on. Sources inside the closed-door vote said it was an overwhelming vote against Cheney.

That represents a remarkable shift from a similar challenge to her leadership status in February, when she won handily. And it marked the first time in recent memory that a congressional GOP leader was toppled by rank-and-file Republicans in the middle of their term through a formal vote.

“ With Wednesday’s vote, Republicans are now “very unified,” Rep. Ben Cline (R-Va.) told The Hill. “We have a diverse conference with diverse views; we celebrate that. And we look to our leadership for our messaging, and we don’t want to distract from that message.”

LOL@this crap

So much for stopping cancel culture.

I think both sides embrace 'cancel culture' when it's convenient for them...

Agreed. But one side whines about it and plays the victim.

The GOP must “steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality,” argued Rep. Liz Cheney ...
“The Republican Party is at a turning point, and Republicans must decide whether we are going to choose truth and fidelity to the Constitution.”

Looks like the GOP did choose indeed.

They're the Party of Trump now. And the party of Gaetz, Louie Gohmert and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Good luck winning a national election with that kind of albatross.

Infowars is an interesting name for a website.

Stuff looks different now that politics is branded on people through social media.

My point being that Trump is a systemic/cultural reflection. I like to think of him as a metaphor who passed a significant pro economy tax reform bill and appointed three conservative Supreme Court justices.

It’s quite the cognitive dissonance when someone claims that the news is fake and then proceeds to force himself into the spotlight by challenging everything in the mainstream media narrative.

I mean it’s cognitive dissonance when you claim that your identity is comprised of what you click on and what you repost and what letters on the keyboard you press.

But. Keep believing in your social media progressive ideology indoctrination that you churn out, really, just because clicks mean money and Amazon and Zuckerburg, and Musk, really just inflate this enormous new tech bubble.

You keep rising towards the sun you little champions you.

Who you you talking to in these random rants you write?

Some strawman that's meant to make you feel better about yourself?

It’s on topic.

Not really aiming at anyone or anything. Just saying that Trump isn’t a vote for extremism and is more of a sign of the times.

That seems to remove the accountability of Trump, his cronies,Fox News, etc.
Their influence influences the times.

I think that far left policies and opinion pieces have dominated internet journalism so it’s really happening on both sides.

US politics has somehow devolved into the trump party and the anti-trump party. kind of makes you wonder if trump derangement syndrome is the new normal since everyone can't shut up about it.

What the f*ck are you talking about? There is the trump party, then conservatives, and democrats. If the GOP had left trump to the dustbin of history he wouldn’t be relevant past the fact that he should be in prison.

another example of why we need a viable third party in america.

Listen to me very carefully, there will never be a viable third party in America. Most people understand that voting for a third party means splitting the vote of the side you're on.

Why do you assume that everybody is on one side or the other and is content with that situation?

It's not a very big box to think outside.

How many people don't vote at all.... that's a lot of people who are not voting for the side they are on.

Imagine there IS a 3rd party and that 3rd party manages to win that just one vote that splits the majority between tweedle dee and tweedle dum. They could have a lot of influence over what happens next.

Seeing as the GOP drifts to the right and some parts of the Dems on the farer left become stronger, I'd not be surprised to see some center party rise to a significant third power (or you have an extreme left part splitting from the Dems and the Trumpists splpittting from the GOP, leaving either moderate party leftovers weaker).
Numerous democracies all over the world have had coalition governments for centuries and there's good examples that these work just as good as governments with one party haveing the absolute majority. It'ss be interesting to watch if the US can actually get pull that off.
Because, as it is, you folks seem to have lost the ability to compromise, which makes the core of a healthy democracy.

RIP GOP ... Party of Trump and Gaetz, Greene and Gohmert

Saying the ability to compromise has been lost has an insinuation that this is a problem on both sides, but it's not. Rather, the political calculus has shifted to where republicans believe (and sadly rightly so) that it is more politically beneficial for them to refuse to work with anyone across the aisle than to actually serve their constituencies.

It wasn't the Republicans that came up with the RESIST movement. The last 4 years have been about refusing to work with Republicans.

Right! When clearly there were very fine people on both sides.
