WAX: How Rep. Matt Gaetz’s Vision of an ‘America First’ GOP Defends Our Nation’s Institutions

The Democrat Party is waging an unprecedented assault on the American way of life, targeting law enforcement and the military, to weaken the nation and make it susceptible for an overthrow by technocratic globalists who have already consolidated their power considerably due to the never-ending pandemic.

It is obvious that the Democrats are at war with our nation’s police, supporting a Black Lives Matter uprising that has made a mockery of the rule of law, but their attacks on the military are far more insidious. It has only become obvious what they have been doing since the Obama regime in recent months, as the Armed Forces deploy force to make the world safe for immorality and corruption on every corner of the planet – especially in the homeland.

The National Guard is used as a prop to lock down the U.S. Capitol like an occupied foreign nation after a demonstration on Jan. 6 that, if it were performed by ANTIFA thugs, would have been called a “mostly-peaceful protest.” At the same time, our nation’s heroes are forced onto a garage floor by the hundreds, cramped together in close quarters during a supposedly lethal pandemic, and fed rotting food causing many of them to be hospitalized. The message is clear: The troops are expendable pawns to be used and discarded by their betters at a whim. 

The Armed Forces have made it abundantly clear that promoting a leftist social agenda is among their top priorities, if not their top priority. It seems soulless degeneracy and mindless consumption are the only American values the foreign empire will defend these days. If the defense industry needed a propaganda push for a war on Iraq today, there would assuredly be a transgender Arab in the Baghdad streets crying about how Saddam doesn’t respect his pansexual gender fluidity to justify the military invasion and regime change.

They aren’t too concerned, however, with repelling foreign threats, who grow bigger and more powerful with each passing day. However, the military will focus their resources on clapping back in NowThis fashion against the likes of Tucker Carlson for questioning the utility of pregnant women on the front lines or Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-GA) for not showing adequate fealty to Guam. Meanwhile, they are reducing fitness standards for the troops because the equality lie does not hold up to objective reality. But weakness is our strength, because of diversity and feelings, and this is the dogma of the new ruling class that we are being converted to by the sword.

At least one GOP Congressman has the courage to stand up to this new regime that is compelling national suicide. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) demonstrated some true patriotism by laying waste to the institutional stupidity that we are being conditioned to accept by the Democrats. Instead of buying into any of the false premises of the left, he eviscerated them all with a gusto not commonly seen from Republican politicians other than former president Donald Trump. He appeared before the House Committee on Armed Services last week and gave a rousing defense of all U.S. troops, championing the free speech of American patriots, as most Republicans remain silent.

“Today, the Chinese communist party is building aircraft carriers and jets that every member of this committee knows threaten to close or eliminate the capability gap. North Korea is perfecting the ability to strike the United States with nuclear weapons. Cartels are hunting the next trafficking routes, and here we are,” Gaetz told the committee.

 “Today, the House Armed Services Committee is engaged in a review of constitutionally-protected expression from our troops. How utterly weak of us. No wonder the Chinese communist party continues to gain ground,” he added. 

While the vast majority of Republicans play defense and acquiesce to Biden’s military purge out of fear of negative media headlines, Gaetz calls out this anti-American activity as the historic disgrace and slap in the face of all those who have served that it truly is.

“This is not about extremism. It’s not about white supremacy. It’s about woke supremacy. It’s about converting the military…into an institution controlled by the political left. Today, instead of working together, we are gathered having a hearing designed to tear us apart, to try and get us to view our fellow countrymen and women who protect us as somehow evil or dangerous or a cancer to be exercised,” Gaetz said.

Gaetz noted that the “U.S. Military is the most diverse organization in our entire country” uniting for the “common purpose to protect and defend the United States of America.” This is what Gaetz and ostensibly the entire Republican Party wish to preserve. So why the silence from so many of Gaetz’s counterparts? The neoconservatives, who dominated the Republican Party during the Bush years and surrendered the country to Barack Obama, have been quiet with regards to the military purge or have cheered it on. The business conservatives, who will accept just about anything as long as massive corporate profits keep rolling in, have refused to speak up as well. 

Virtually all of the Republican politicians who talked tough and saber rattled after 9/11, when it was easy to do so, are sitting on their hands and meekly observing as the Republic is defiled and patriots are treated like terrorists in the former land of the free. As soon as it was no longer fashionable to support the troops, they tossed them aside after putting our nation’s heroes through the meat grinder for their donors’ profits. This is why the Republican Party was headed inextricably toward extinction before Trump came down the escalator and saved the day. The party will only become worth supporting outside of Trump if leaders like Gaetz emerge and take the reigns.

America First Republicans like Gaetz know what it means to actually stand with the troops by supporting them when it may cost political capital to do so. It means standing up for them while their fundamental constitutional rights are under attack. It means refusing to put them in harm’s way overseas unless it becomes absolutely necessary to protect our nation. It means organizing to preserve the freedoms that they put their lives on the line to defend. This is the type of GOP that Trump blazed the trail to create, and it is what leaders like Gaetz can build upon to make the Republican Party worth supporting by the American public outside of one singular cult of personality.
