Cheney is on the outs as a result of she has refused to endorse former President Donald Trump’s “large lie” concerning the 2020 election being “stolen” and has blamed him for the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol that was carried out by his supporters.
“We’re a giant tent get together. We symbolize Individuals of all backgrounds and proceed to develop our motion by the day. And in contrast to the left, we embrace free thought and debate.”
Provided that the letter is asserting his determination to carry a vote that’s prone to eject a member from get together management for her “free thought and debate,” many on social media discovered the assertion greater than a little bit ironic, if not positively Orwellian:

Wow that’s simply brazen – they actually have doubled down on the lies, which is hardly stunning for a celebration with out a platform.
The GOP is a cult whose solely article of religion is the Gospel of Trump.
Liz Cheney is being cancelled for heresy and the thought crime of fact.
