At least two hardliners have discussed — and proposed to Freedom Caucus Chair Scott Perry (R-Pa.) — trying to boot members who no longer meet the group’s standards--Politico, 6-23-23
The Freedom Caucus, the group of solid lunkheads who just nearly crashed the world economy so that poor Americans could get kicked off Medicaid and die, is now consumed with cleansing itself of members deemed insufficiently shortsighted and lamebrained. There are members of the group who think other members are unqualified to blow the bugle of boneheadedness in the halls of Congress, and they wish to kick these complex thinkers to the curb.
One of their targets, astonishingly, is Marjorie Taylor Green. “Ms. Jewish Space Laser?” I hear you gasp. “I would think she’s stupid enough for anybody. The woman is an all-purpose chowderhead!”
Well, she’s not stupid enough for the Freedom Caucus anymore. At first, she was a core member, beloved when she attacked “Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police,” and called the January 6th rioters political prisoners. She got powerful kudos for visiting those rioters in the DC jail, and observing that they were being treated as if they were black people in jail.
When she said school shootings were staged by ‘crisis actors,’ not real dead kids, the Freedom Caucusers said, “Atta girl.” When she came out in favor of global warming, she thrilled her fellow Republican dimbulbs to the very depths of their gonads. She’s busted the chops of critical race theorists, Black Lives Matter, and drag queens reading banned books, all to hoots of applause from her microcephalic Republican buds.
All this was mixed in with a steady hatred of refugees and rainbow flags. She filed articles of impeachment against Joe Biden, practically all his Cabinet, and every other Democrat whose name she could spell correctly. The Freedom Caucus practically swooned.
So, what went wrong? It’s not her cussing out her comrade in confusion, Lauren, ‘I got my gun AND my GED,’ Boebert, in public. In fact, if these two low-in-the-Q’s lasses were to jello-wrestle in string bikinis under the rotunda, the remainder of the Freedom Caucus, who are entirely male, would watch. I mean, they're going to watch the Zuckerman-Musk cage match, too, but it won't make them touch themselves.
A neutral observer might think you can only get kicked out of the FC for a conspicuous increase in brainwaves. MTG has not exhibited that. She still thinks the most important problems facing this country are racism against white people, not tearing down Confederate monuments, and high school sports being played without genital checks.
The problem seems to be her love of anything spineless, from jellyfish to mollusks to Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy is a human Muppet, a man who needs someone to stick his hand up his ass in order to stand up for anything. He is being smooched upon by Greene, and the Freedom Caucus regards their coupling as being as unnatural as an ungendered restroom.
Can you blame them?
