GOP wilting from fight

Once again our Constitution is under assault, and once again the silence from the Republican establishment, which includes our beloved Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, is deafening. Members of America’s Electoral College are receiving death threats, while the Obama Department of Justice and FBI are doing nothing to preserve the integrity of our electoral system. And what do we hear from Republicans? Crickets.

If the situation was reversed and just one Clinton elector received the slightest hint of a threat, the entire Democrat Party would be united in demanding action. Republicans would be pelted with demands for immediate action to incarcerate anyone even remotely tied to threatening a Democrat elector. But as usual when our Constitution is assaulted, Republicans run to the nearest safe space and cower in fear of being too aggressive.

On Nov. 8, voters made it quite clear that we are tired of inept Republican establishment snowflakes. Yet, just weeks since that election, Republicans are once again doing nothing to defend even their own electors from death threats. Michelle Malkin said it well, “Silence is complicity. Speak now or surrender your ground.” Americans are tired of voting for those who surrender our ground.
