Marjorie Taylor Greene to Form a New Anglo-Saxon Caucus
Several House Republicans, led by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz), have announced the forming of the America First Caucus, a group that calls for a "common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon traditions,” including “politics, culture, and the engineering and aesthetic values that befit the progeny of European architecture.”
Oops - sounds like someone just said all the “quiet parts” of the Republican Party platform - right out loud. Seems like kind of a long, convoluted way to say “white supremacy,” but OK - we get it. Of course, we all know that most conservatives would just love to turn back the clock, but come on - 1066 is a wee bit much, even for Trump supporters.
In fact, many Republicans think having a solely “Anglo-Saxon Caucus,” makes the party look bad because it isn’t inclusive enough. Instead, they suggest calling it the “Caucasian Caucus” - so all the “white people” will be represented, not just Anglo-Saxons. Kind of makes you wonder what the hell - was “Aryan Caucus” already taken?
Anyway, some on the left are claiming that Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar’s Anglo-Saxon Caucus is just another racist “dog whistle,” but I disagree. Fact is, about the only reason those two would ever need use of a dog whistle - would be to help them find a mate. Now, what they’re really doing is some early prepping - for a Tucker Carlson presidency.
The Mark and Patricia McCloskey of the Congress. Erecting a gated community of "Anglo-Saxons" to carry on traditions founded in the immigration of the Norse peoples to England. The Anglecynn and the Saxons ruled by a monarch for centuries before Cromwell. An open declaration of the delusion of the superiority of northern European heritage. I have to agree with Rep. Ted Lieu about the "America First Caucus" being "crap". At the same time I disagree that it is "nativist" because the northern European "Anglo-Saxons" were immigrants. Which makes Marjorie & Paul's crap immigrationist crap and not native American crap.
