WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Liz Cheney is seemingly seems to be capitalizing on the mass shooting that occurred in Buffalo earlier in May, adopting the now-popular Democrat talking point of accusing her Republican colleagues in the House of enabling “white supremacy.”
Rep. Cheney on May 16th took to Twitter to espouse the uncredible allegation that House Republicans are somehow disseminating racist rhetoric. She wrote, “The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. [GOP] leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.”
This talking point that Rep. Cheney is alluding to appears to be in reference to Democrats’ recent clamoring about the “great replacement theory” that has garnered immense scrutiny due to the topic being a recurring theme in an unverified manifesto purportedly written by the accused Buffalo mass shooter.
In the simplest of terms, this “great replacement theory” is the belief that white Americans are enduring a sort of systemic erasure via multiple avenues, with one of those methods being the intentional flooding of immigrants into the country.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
And while Republicans in both the House and Senate have certainly spoken out against the adverse impacts of illegal immigration, especially considering the crisis at the southern border as of late, none of the professed concerns from Republican officials have revolved around this “great replacement theory.”
Still, House Republicans like Rep. Elise Stefanik are being accused of promulgating the “great replacement theory” by various media outlets, with these outlets justifying the claim by pointing a Facebook ad ran by Rep. Stefanik’s campaign in September of 2021 that attacked the notion of Democrats pushing for amnesty amidst an active border crisis. Of course, opposition to mass-amnesty and illegal immigration is completely different than subscribing to, or promoting, the theory of orchestrated white American erasure.
Rep. Stefanik’s Senior Advisor, Alex DeGrasse, issued a statement in light of these libelous assertions from media pundits and Democrats alike, calling the partisan attacks a “new low” for leftists.
“Any implication or attempt to blame the heinous shooting in Buffalo on the Congresswoman is a new disgusting low for the Left, their Never Trump allies, and the sycophant stenographers in the media. Despite sickening and false reporting, Congresswoman Stefanik has never advocated for any racist position or made a racist statement.”
Despite media outlets’ best efforts to lay blame to Republicans for the Buffalo shooting incident, with Rolling Stone having ran a recent headline reading, “The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a ‘Lone Wolf.’ He’s a Mainstream Republican,” the contents of this alleged shooter’s manifesto – which has yet to be verified as authentic – details a disdain for Republicans and conservatism.
