North Carolina Representative Madison Cawthorne dropped some bombs on the House floor while arguing against dispatching troops to Ukraine “on the whims of an idiot”.
Madam Speaker, the sons and daughters of America are not foot soldiers for your party’s inept geriatric despot. They are not expendable pawns to be dispatched at the whims of an idiot, tossed carelessly around the world to godforsaken caves and bloody sand boxes. They are Americans, worthy of honor and dignity. The only salute from them Joe Biden deserves involves one finger…
“The path to American national security does not lie in American international interventionism,” he continued. “It lies in securing our southern border – not the Russia-Ukraine border. Our greatness is forged in our resistance to interference. The war lobby has no ally in the America First Republicans. We will preserve our strength through nationalism. We will champion America First today and America First forever.”
