Liz Cheney gets no fucking medal

Repugnican Classic U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney gives the Pussygrabberian Repugnicans (which is most of them) a headache, and that’s fucking great, but she’s still very much a Repugnican with repugnant political views.

Today, Repugnican U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (the only U.S. rep for the barely populated Wyoming) is expected to lose the Repugnican primary election for her job, big-time, to Pussygrabber-endorsed, bug-eyed nut job Harriet Hageman. (You have to be a nut job to be endorsed by former “President” Pussygrabber, and you have to be ethics-free; before he’ll endorse you, Pussygrabber has to feel confidant that you would do everything in your power to help throw the 2024 presidential election to him in the event that he runs and loses again.)

More Democrats than Repugnicans will miss Liz, it seems; apparently it is tempting to some if not many (if not most) to think that the enemy of our enemy is our friend.

While except for the repetitive portions I’ve enjoyed watching every single televised hearing of the U.S. House committee investigating the treasonous attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by Pussygrabber’s brain-dead flying monkeys who were commanded by him just as the flying monkeys in “The Wizard of Oz” were acting on the orders of the Wicked Witch of the West, I’ve never felt that Liz Cheney, vice chair of the January 6 House committee, even though she’s helping to damage the Pussygrabberian Repugnican Party (not that these fucktards have needed much help with that), especially is our friend.

Cheney’s homophobic past (including attacks on her own lesbian sister) not sitting well with this gay man aside, and aside from her father being a war criminal whose treasonous actions she has, to my knowledge, never criticized (Papa Cheney was instrumental in getting the United States to launch the wholly bogus Vietraq War, using September 11, 2001, as the pretext), when I recently visited Cheney’s campaign website to see if maybe I could give her a tiny bit of money (because Hageman is a total fucking lunatic and because I do to at least some degree appreciate the precious few Repugnicans who are standing up to the neo-fascist Pussygrabberianism [even though, as I’m about to tell you, they don’t exactly deserve fucking medals for that]), I clicked on “Issues” on the homepage and perused it a bit. Under “Issues” is “Protecting life,” and under “Protecting life,” Liz Cheney’s campaign proclaims:

Protecting life is one of the most important responsibilities of elected officials and it’s something Liz takes very seriously. Unfortunately, the rights of the unborn are under attack by far-left advocates. She’s proud to be a co-sponsor of the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, and enthusiastically signed a discharge petition to bring this legislation to the House floor for an up-or-down vote. Babies who are born after failed abortion attempts deserve every possible protection, and those unwilling to support legislation to do that are endorsing a policy tantamount to infanticide.

Liz also proudly co-sponsored legislation that would: (1) prevent taxpayer funding for abortion; (2) defund Planned Parenthood; and (3) prevent abortions after 20 weeks. She’s proud of her pro-life record and will always be an outspoken voice in defense of all human life. [Except, of course, for the tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis her father helped to slaughter in the Vietraq War, as well as the almost 4,500 U.S. troops who died only for blatant corporate profiteering via the Vietraq War, such as that by Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and other greedy, shameless war contractors, and by Big Oil.]

Yeah, on Liz’s stance on abortion, just: No.

Per the Pew Research Center:

In 2019, 56 percent of legal abortions in clinical settings occurred via some form of surgery, while 44 percent were medication abortions involving pills, according to the CDC. Since the Food and Drug Administration first approved abortion pills in 2000, their use has increased over time as a share of abortions nationally. [Preliminary data from a] forthcoming study says that 2020 was the first time that more than half of all abortions in clinical settings in the U.S. were medication abortions.

And also per Pew:

The vast majority of abortions — around nine in 10 — occur during the first trimester of a pregnancy. [The average full-term pregnancy is about 40 weeks.] In 2019, 93 percent of abortions occurred during the first trimester — that is, at or before 13 weeks of gestation, according to the CDC. An additional 6 percent occurred between 14 and 20 weeks of pregnancy, and 1 percent were performed at 21 weeks or more of gestation.” (Emphasis mine.)

So here is Liz Cheney repeatedly equating abortion to “infanticide,” and raising the abject horror of all of these babies still alive after botched abortions just being slaughtered, when 1 percent of the abortions in 2019 were performed at or after 21 weeks. (A fetus is considered viable after about 24 weeks.)

So that degree of lying and fear-mongering takes Liz Cheney out of the category of any politician I could ever give a fucking penny to (or cast a vote for — of course, I don’t, and never fucking would, live in Wyoming, the reddest so-called state in the nation).

Abortion is only one issue, I hear you “argue,” but no, with 60 percent of Americans in even a recent Faux “News” poll saying that Roe vs. Wade should not have been overturned, Cheney’s stances on abortion, including to “defund Planned Parenthood,” are the whack-job minority view.

And, again, Cheney just flat-out lies and fear mongers to support this whack-job minority view, and whether she truly believes her own bullshit about abortion or is just catering to the mouth-breathing knuckle-draggers of her backasswards state, I don’t care. Being a true believer of her own lies makes her a fucking moron, and lying through her teeth just to please her base base demonstrates incredibly shitty character.

Don’t get me wrong, though; I don’t look forward to the Harriet Hageman years — we already have more than enough wild-eyed, right-wing/fascist whackos in Congress — and I invite all Repugnicans who can find a fucking semblance of a fucking spine to publicly oppose Pussygrabberianism/neo-fascism.

But you should oppose fascism (and treason, which goes hand-in-hand with fascism), period.

That would be doing the bare fucking minimum, so no, you don’t get a fucking medal for that.

So no fucking medal for Liz Cheney, but if she wants to keep working to prevent Pussygrabber from ever becoming “president” again, as she says she does, I’m A-OK with that.

P.S. I’ve long wondered how much Liz Cheney has truly cared about the survival of our democracy against these “Stop the Steal” hypocrites and traitors who are crying “election fraud!” while (of course!) trying to perpetrate election fraud themselves (such as in Georgia, for which Pussygrabber & Co. are being investigated) — and how much Liz Cheney has just been pissed off that, being the daughter of a Repugnican-Classic former “vice president,” she’s had her eye on the White House for herself for a very long time, and this upstart Pussygrabberianism unexpectedly has stood in her way, blocking her path to the Oval Office as a Repugnican Classic.

I don’t think that Liz is as selfless in all of this as she paints herself to be. Indeed, she still apparently has her eye on the Oval Office.

P.P.S. Seriously, though, it’s only a matter of time before I see this “woman” in my nightmares:

As a white man, I want to apologize to my Native American brothers and sisters not only for what the white man has done to you, but also for Harriet Hageman…
