Garrett Zahner, Parlimentarian for the Baltimore County Republican Central Commitee, wrote an op-ed for the Baltimore Sun on January 26th, 2021. In his piece, Zahner called for the end of ‘Trump populism’ and the ‘Tea Part Conservatives’.
Zahner claims that the only way forward for the Republican party is to embrace a British style of Conservatism. He uses the term ‘One Nation’, a quote derived from former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli.
Zahner is quoted as saying…
The Capitol riot was the first day for the Republican Civil War, which at worst can destroy the party and set back conservatism in the U.S. for decades or, at best, push the GOP into a new direction that can place it as the dominant political party for years to come. For this latter path forward to prevail, it is imperative, during this battle for the soul of the party, that the neoconservatives, the Tea Party Republicans, and the Trump populists all lose in the brawl.
Does Zahner mention the fact that the FBI had plants in the crowd stirring things up and provoking violence? Does he acknowledge the fact that NOBODY was killed on January 6th except for Ashli Babbitt, who was shot in the throat in an obvious overreaction? No.
Zahner instead used his platform to bash the million+ patriots who showed up to Washington D.C. on that day to take a stand for our country.
Like so many establishment figures, Zahner ignores the 99.99% of the protestors in favor of highlighting the actions of a few hundred people.
Nowhere in the article does Zahner mention the treasonous crime of certifying a fraudulent election committed by Congress on the exact same day.
Former Member of the Baltimore Republican Central Committee William T. Newton had this to say about the op-ed:
As a Conservative, I am not alright with my so-called ‘leaders’ bashing my audience and myself. We must purge members, either elected or appointed to leadership positions, who lack any comprehension of the history of politics and what the foundation of our Country and Party really are.
On a Federal, State, and Local level, we must ensure that people who actually believe in our values are the ones who we elect to leadership positions.
This kind of detestable behavior is exactly why Republicans continue to LOSE in Maryland. Time and time again, our so-called ‘leaders’ have chosen the favor of the establishment, rather than the favor of the people.
The political establishment, headed by Larry Hogan, decimated the State of Maryland over the last year. They shuttered businesses, destroyed lives, and bullied the people into helpless compliance.
I wouldn’t wish the ineffective, crony Conservatism proposed by Zahner on my worst enemy. His words show how distant Republican leaders are from the Conservative base.
AMERICA FIRST candidates continue to be the only option for voters looking for effective representation. Left or right.
