Home Depot’s Bernie Marcus Endorses Harmeet Dhillon For RNC Chair | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Hank Berrien.

    Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus, a staunch supporter of former President Trump during his tenure, has endorsed attorney Harmeet Dhillon to become the next chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.

    Dhillon is running for the position currently held by Ronna Romney McDaniel, who has come under heavy criticism after the GOP performed less well than expected in 2018, 2020, and 2022.

    "I am supporting Harmeet Dhillon to become the next chairwoman of the RNC because America's path forward is at stake," Marcus wrote. "Harmeet Dhillon is a fighter in our courts, in the media, and elsewhere. The RNC needs someone with her real-world experience, tenacity and toughness. Please join me in supporting Harmeet Dhillon for RNC Chairwoman."

    "There is a dispute in our party between grassroots activists who believe that voting early lets the other side know how many votes you have," Dillon said in an interview with Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro. "I think in reality, the Democrats were able to elect virtually unelectable candidates like [Pennsylvania Senator-elect] John Fetterman, like [Arizona Governor-elect] Katie Hobbs, because they knew that no matter what the quality of the candidate was, they were going to get those votes.

    "We need to do that," Dhillon said. "And as I tell grassroots leaders, our message needs to be until we can elect a legislature and a governor who will sign on to the legislatures' tightened up voting laws, we must beat the Democrats at their own game."

    In late December, Marcus, who along with his business partner Arthur Blank built Home Depot into a giant financial success, slammed Americans who don't want to work.

    Marcus, whom Bloomberg estimates has a net worth of $5.25 billion but has, with his wife, donated over $2 billion to over 500 organizations through their Marcus Foundation, spoke in an interview with Financial Times.

    "I'm worried about capitalism," Marcus stated. "Capitalism is the basis of Home Depot [and] millions of people have earned this success and had success. I'm talking manufacturers, vendors and distributors and people that work for us [who have been] able to enrich themselves by the journey of Home Depot. That's the success. That's why capitalism works."

    Marcus continued that thanks to "socialism," "nobody works. Nobody gives a damn. 'Just give it to me. Send me money. I don't want to work - I'm too lazy, I'm too fat, I'm too stupid.'"

    Marcus wasn't worried about any criticism he might elicit about his comments, especially from those he termed "woke." He declared, "We used to have free speech here. We don't have it. The woke people have taken over the world. You know, I imagine today they can't attack me. I'm 93. Who gives a crap about Bernie Marcus?"

    Marcus reserved much of his harsh criticism for those who have reached great wealth but then sit on their money, "Too timid to jump in, these are people who took great risks in whatever they did, but they're afraid to take this risk [to get] into the charitable world and help other people. Why, I don't know," he said.

    Marcus, who has supported former President Trump and donated to both Trump and Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis, called President Biden "the worst president in the history of this country." He called Trump's policies "spot on," but added, "It's going to be very interesting in '24 because I think that DeSantis will challenge him. And may the better man win."

In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.
