LIZ CHENEY: After the House GOP voted this morning to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from leadership, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer spoke on the Senate floor to commend her “courage” while calling it a “dark moment” for Republicans pic.twitter.com/RcXXQTM6TW— Forbes (@Forbes) May 12, 2021

If you turn on PMC TV, all you hear these days is that there is a “civil war” in the Republican Party and that Liz Cheney is a True Conservative and a hero who is fighting for what she believes in, which is to say, American imperialism. The Bush-Cheney legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan is the source of her animosity toward Donald Trump. She represents the “defense hawks” who want to stay there forever.
Everyone who was affiliated with the George W. Bush administration is being toasted as a hero of the Resistance. Nicolle Wallace has a MSNBC show. David Frum edits The Atlantic. Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin write for The Washington Post. Neocons like Bill Kristol and Charlie Sykes are invited on MSNBC to share their thoughts on endless segments while people who oppose imperialism, torture, the surveillance state and lying for the establishment on principle like Glenn Greenwald or Jimmy Dore are blacklisted.
This is an epic troll when you think about it. CNN and MSNBC have convinced liberals that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney are on their side and represent their values. John McCain and Mitt Romney are also freedom fighters. The world has been turned upside down. We’re also “fascism” for consistently opposing imperialism and warmongers like John McCain or Dick Cheney for the past 20 years now. Progressives love all of these people now due to their nonstop positive publicity.
Note: How many segments can you do in 24 hours on Liz Cheney?
