Cawthorn Targeted for No Reason

    New Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina is a young man with a glimmering future in the party. So Democrats want to nip his career in the bud now, before he really hurts them.

    Cawthorn has completely denounced the assault on the Capitol and those who launched it. Democrats are trying to tie him to the assault anyway.

    FNC: "Democratic leaders from North Carolina's western-most district are calling for the expulsion of freshman Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn, alleging his 'seditious behavior' helped incite the 'insurrection' at the U.S. Capitol last week. State Democrats from Cawthorn's 11th District have written a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi asking for an investigation into the Republican congressman. They claim there was an ethics violation for 'violent language' on his Twitter feed leading up to the unrest last week at the Capitol."

    "Mr. Cawthorn needs to be held accountable for his seditious behavior and for consequences resulting from said behavior," reads the non-factual letter. "We will not tolerate misinformation, conspiracy theories, and lies from our Representatives...In a speech to the crowd at the rally immediately before the Capitol was attacked, Representative Cawthorn incited the crowd again using violent language and calling his colleagues 'cowards.'"

    Cawthorn's office responded. "Unlike NC-11 Democrats, Madison Cawthorn condemns mob violence under any banner. NC-11 Democrats were silent when left-wing mobs attacked civilians, businesses and law enforcement in Asheville. They have no moral authority to speak up now when they were silent then."

    "Principled conservatives disagreed about the 2020 election," the statement from his office said. "But debating whether Congress should accept or reject electoral votes in states that may have ignored their own laws was entirely appropriate and legal under our Constitution."

    The Charlotte Observer reported Cawthorn said in a previous speech to supporters, "Call your congressman and feel free, you can lightly threaten them and say, you know what, if you don't start supporting election integrity, I'm coming after you, Madison Cawthorn is coming after you, everybody's coming after you...My friends, the Democrats, with all the fraud they have done in this election, the Republicans hiding and not fighting, they are trying to silence your voice," Cawthorn told the crowd. Unwise perhaps, but hardly sedition.

    Cawthorn forcefully responded to the assault on the Capitol. "We've slid back our movement years and years. We've lost years of progress. It's a sad state of affairs," Cawthorn said in an interview with WTVD in Durham, N.C., "The Republican Party is leaderless right now. It's very fluid trying to figure out what it is. My heart hurts for where the country is at just to see people with American flags and Trump flags, people who normally I associate with, storming our Capitol. It's sickening and infuriating...I think when the president said we're going to march down to the Capitol and I'm going to march with you that was a major mistake. He never should've directed that crowd toward the Capitol. The bad outcome was destined at that point." Bingo.

Representative Cawthorn would be wise to leave Twitter, like so many, and find an alternative means of expressing himself.

The Democratic Socialists have proven to be intolerant hypocrites of low intellectual acuity, and their viral stupidity can be dangerous, so all should be careful going forward, including the Representative.
