The hateful face of the GOP
This one’s a bit personal for me, given I threw my support behind Colonel Moe Davis, the imminently qualified Democrat who ran to represent my home district of NC-11. Beyond my personal disgust towards Cawthorn, this piece captures an essence of the next generation of Republicans that we all need to prepare for. They’ve been forged by a decade of Tea Party astroturfing, McConnell’s cynical abdication of all responsibility and shame, and the proto-authoritarianism of Trump. Younger people may be trending in a slightly more liberal direction overall, but the next generation of conservative leaders are going to be more vile than anything we’ve seen before.
