Stop praising U.S. Representative of Wyoming, Liz Cheney. She hasn’t done anything but defend her father’s idea of white hegemony. Remember her father? The Prince of Darkness, Darth Vader, or as I remember him, Dick. Her father is Dick Cheney, the Vice President to George W Bush aka W. The winner in the 2000 election that was actually (allegedly) stolen with the help of some hanging chads and W’s brother Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida.
“Thousands of black electors in Florida were disenfranchised in last November’s election by an electoral system tainted by “injustice, ineptitude and inefficiency,” a leaked report by the U.S. civil rights commission says.”—Guardian
Dick Cheney was part of the Bush administration when more than 1800 people died in Hurricane Katrina as Bush flew over New Orleans from Air Force One.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency was widely blamed for failing to act quickly enough to help those affected by the storm. Yet President Bush, in a vivid example of seeming out of touch, praised FEMA Director Michael Brown early in the crisis. “Brownie,” Bush said, “you’re doing a heck of a job.”—Newsweek
During the disaster in 2005, Cheney thought the best course of action was to go freaking fishing. He went fishing while Black people drowned and floated in Hurricane waters like dead fish!
But that was her daddy, you say. Well, fast forward five years later to 2010 at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans held off of the Mississippi river, Liz Cheney, as a speaker, does not memorialize the victims of Katrina or even mention them.
Liz’s father, Dick, was also Secretary of Defense to George H W Bush Sr. The latter pardoned officials involved in the Iran-Contra affair, which was bankrolled by pouring crack cocaine into the Black community during the 80s.
Cheney is in her seat because of her father. As Shakespeare stated, “The sins of the father are to be laid upon the child.”
Her voting record:
She voted AGAINST U.S. House Joint Resolution 46
Terminate border wall emergency declaration
To terminate President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the U.S.-Mexican border, which allowed him to bypass Congress and re-allocate funds to build a border wall.
She voted YES on: Securing America’s Future Act of 2018 (HR 4760)— This act proposed funding a border wall, limiting legal immigration, AND a mandatory worker verification program.
To hell with this woman.
The Cheneys are unapologetic conservatives and practitioners of white supremacy. She just does it with manners and her pinkie finger up.
Today, Liz Cheney beats the drum of “the 2020 election was not stolen,” and people want to praise her for that —this is not about this country, this is about Trump and todays’ Republicans disrespecting her father’s ideas, her voting record shows that she is every bit as unreasonable.
The GOP is corrupt. No one is holding a gun to Cheney’s head. If she was really about something, she would leave the GOP, but no, because this is not about justice or decency. You lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas. Let the GOP duke it out and implode.
