Obviously, the people of Utah who voted for Liz Cheney didn’t want Donald Trump impeached.
But you have to understand: that’s how democracy works. You vote for a person, and then they are allowed to do whatever they want to you, including abuse you in sadistic ways.
That’s our values.
It’s who we are.
The Wyoming Republican party on Saturday voted to censure Congresswoman Liz Cheney over her vote to impeach former President Trump. Cheney, the third-ranking Republican in the House, said Saturday that her vote to impeach was “compelled by the oath I swore to the Constitution.”
The Wyoming GOP approved a censure resolution by a vote of 56 to 8. The censure resolution says the state party will not raise money for her in the future and also asks that she repay any donations made to her 2020 campaign by the state party and any county parties that request it.
“I’m honored to represent the people of Wyoming in Congress and will always fight for the issues that matter most to our state,” Cheney said in a statement on Saturday. “Foremost among these is the defense of our Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees.”
Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who broke with the party and voted on January 13 to impeach Mr. Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Mr. Trump’s trial will start in the Senate on Tuesday.
The censure document says Cheney voted for impeachment “despite the lack of any formal hearing being held, evidence being presented, witnesses being sworn to testify, or accusers being questioned.”
Mr. Trump won nearly 70% of Wyoming voters in November, and Cheney is the only Congresswoman from the state. The Republican party accused of her not being in touch with the voters of the state. The resolution claims that Republicans in the state have since left the party or changed their voter registration.
Several party members spoke out against the move to censure Cheney. During Saturday’s meeting, Teton County Chairman Alex Muromcew said the state party should resist “this left-wing trend of ‘cancel culture,’ trying to censure and get rid of anybody that we disagree with.”
See, he’s right: saying that elected representatives should represent the people who voted for them is cancel culture. This is no different than the left.
Our values are that no one who is elected can ever be held accountable to the people who voted for them. Saying that they should be held accountable – that is no different than communism.
Everyone in Utah who thinks that their representatives should represent them is a triggered snowflake.
Liz Cheney is your mommy, snowflake.
You might think you’re special, but you still have to do what mommy says.
It’s who we are.
