It's a tiny caucus.

NewportBarGuy: Can't the Speaker of the House just tell them to f*ck off?


The Speaker has neither eyes to see nor tongue to speak in this place but as the House is pleased to direct her whose servant she is there.

/Also an "Anglo-Saxon political tradition"

JakeSherman: NEW in @PunchbowlNews Midday An America First Caucus is recruiting lawmakers calling for "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions" and a return to architectural style that "befits the progeny of European architecture." linked to @mtgreenee and @RepGosar


Jesus farking christ.  Architectural style is a literal call put to nazis.  There is no other reason for it.

Wow.  Just farking wow.  "Hey let's throw something completely unrelated in for no reason....  but to dog whistle."

You know who ELSE advocated for unique political traditions based on a perceived master race?

Friends, make no mistake. These F-s will come for the rest of us some day if they're allowed to get away with this shiat.

I thought American conservatives hate European nations because they are filled with minorities, high crime, and regulations.

That is why they sent this guy.

That flag is one reason I prefer Canadian federalism over American federalism. Our pesky notwithstanding clause and our multiculturalism clause make diversity a constituional principle instead of a social problem the constitution can be used to "solve".

America First Caucus: Stop liking what we don't like.


Seriously though -- architecture? They're really going to try to use that as a, I don't know, "plank" as part of their platform?  I doubt the bulk of the AFC followers come from hotbeds of classic European-esque architecture, whatever they mean by that.

I would also like to see any of the AFC members offer a serious explanation of what they believe to be "anglo-saxon legal principals".  Not because they don't exist, but I think it'd be hilarious to watch the likes of Lauren Boebert (I assume she's part of this) try to answer questions about how our current legal and political system has derived from England of the middle ages.

That's what a lot of these "white moderates" don't understand about fascism.

It farks with EVERYONE.  Cops turned on white people protesting injustice when they felt their impunity was threatened.  The "Back the Blue" crowd turned on Cops to overturn an election.

Fascists usually single out a specific group at the beginning, but their ultimate goal is to trample the fark out of everyone that stands between them and power.  fark a goal or ideology; it's all about being in control.

We get it, you don't like colored people. FFS, at least have the balls to be honest about it instead of masking your bigotry in pseudo intellectual bullshiat.

"befits the progeny of European architecture"

I guarantee you that 99.9% of your supporters don't understand what that means.
 
2021-04-16 3:19:36 PM  
a return to architectural style that "befits the progeny of European architecture."

What in the ever living fark does this mean?  Is it mandated that all homes be Tudor style now?

This strikes me as when the Nazis tried to create their own physics called Deutsche Physik to differentiate itself from regular physics for being too Jewish.  They never got the bomb despite having more runway, so tell me how that worked out.

See my post above.  Its a call out to the nazis.  Literally.

Nazis are obsessed with neoclassical architecture because.... Hitler was.
