Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., says establishment Republicans are to blame for Democrats gaining power.
“Democrats have one priority and one priority only and that is power,” Cawthorn said Tuesday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “Chris Salcedo Show” in reference to Democrats attempting to hold Republicans objecting the results of the 2020 presidential election accountable for rioters breaching the U.S. Capitol.
“The people that we should hold responsible for allowing the Democrats to gain so much power where they can hoodwink the majority of America is the establishment Republicans from the last two or three decades and I think that’s why we’re calling for a new Republican Party, one that’s an innovator, one that’s a thought leader, one that encourages freedom of thought and diversity of ideas, not just for diversity’s sake.
“I believe we should allow everyone to have a platform, to be able to say what they believe and what they think, and we shouldn’t criminalize a certain few simply because we think that’s the right thing to do. It’s a Democratic weapon and they’re using it well.”
