Look at me.
I’m the normie now, Shawn.
“WASHINGTON — House Republicans voted en masse on Wednesday against a resolution condemning a white supremacist conspiracy theory, after Democrats tacked it onto a procedural measure to advance gun control legislation, effectively daring the G.O.P. to oppose it.
The resolution condemned the so-called great replacement theory, the belief that Western elites want to “replace” and marginalize white Americans, which apparently motivated the gunman who slaughtered 10 Black people at a supermarket in Buffalo last month. The measure, which also opened an hourslong debate on legislation to prohibit the sale of semiautomatic weapons to people under the age of 21 and ban the sale of magazines that hold more than 15 rounds of ammunition, passed 218 to 205, with Republicans uniformly opposed.
Republicans are also all but unanimous in their opposition to Democrats’ gun control package, and it is exceedingly unusual for members of the minority party to vote in favor of the majority’s procedural measures in any case. By including the resolution on replacement theory, Democrats were seeking to put Republicans on the spot on the issue.
The resolution, sponsored by Representative Jamaal Bowman, Democrat of New York, honored the Buffalo shooting victims and denounced the ideology that appears to have motivated their killer, calling it “a white supremacist conspiracy theory that has been used to falsely justify racially motivated, violent acts of terrorism domestically and internationally.”
“We cannot continue to carry on as if this hatred is an undeniable part of American culture and cannot change,” Mr. Bowman said. “We must combat white supremacy. I refuse to be complicit in this hatred because we have failed to take a stand as a nation.” …”
The GOP hasn’t changed.
Republican voters have changed. They are less naive about race in the post-George Floyd, Joe Biden “new progressive era.” The politicians have their finger in the wind and are just afraid of crossing their voters
