WAX: Why the MAGA Movement Needs Matt Gaetz in Congress

Over the past month, there has been a relentless assault on Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), with fake news media laundering deep state dirt in a similar manner as they did with the Russia-gate scam with Trump in an attempt to destroy Gaetz’s career.

The political establishment and the deep state have moved the goalposts many times throughout the scandal already. What went from being an investigation into improper relations with a 17-year-old girl became random allegations involving flings with of-age women. Gaetz’s story involving a deep state blackmail plot was ultimately corroborated, and he has only been shown to have consensual relationships as a bachelor.

This came at a time when Gaetz had built up a great deal of momentum, holding the Trump base and effectively attacking the Democrats. Before the entirety of the political system came down on him in a flash, he was doing what he does better than anyone in Congress: standing up for the rights of the troops and spreading an urgent message that few have the courage to express due to political correctness.

A recent Gaetz appearance before the House Committee on Armed Services has been memory-holed quickly due to his scandal. This appearance showed Gaetz at his best as he issued a rousing defense of all U.S. troops. Gaetz has quietly become a champion for America’s heroes, reaching across the aisle to bring troops home from the forever wars preferred by Pentagon bureaucrats and defense contractors. Gaetz is championing the free speech of conservative patriots in the military, even while 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.” He is fighting back against a woke agenda focusing military 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.

Gaetz is one of the few with the courage to even mention this agenda, much less oppose it. The Republican Party, at least according to the special interests that call the shots, is now the party that believes transgender children represent family values and speaking positively of America’s Anglo-Saxon heritage is white supremacy. The Chamber of Commerce likes the woke money flowing into their coffers so Republicans look the other way while perverts groom children in schools. Standing strong to put America First might get some negative media publicity to better virtue signal, spread enemy propaganda, and kill the political base instead. This is the reboot of the GOP we are witnessing in real-time.

The embattled representative from Florida is not going along with the program, which is why he has been targeted for annihilation. The political establishment is starting to get worried. Their attacks on Gaetz have tempered, aided by an amnesiac public inundated with fear porn and entranced by constant scandals. There is a growing sense that he is going to pull through and emerge from the strife stronger than ever. Similar to Trump after Billy Bush Saturday, Gaetz has gained momentum by shrugging off the coordinated attacks. If he can weather the storm, Gaetz could become unstoppable and prove to be the heir to Trump that the MAGA movement desperately needs to prevent the GOP’s orchestrated backslide.

The MAGA movement is alive and stronger than ever. People who believe in the America First agenda are expecting the politicians they elected to put our REAL interests first and speak up to stop the nonsense this regime in the White House is trying to force upon us. Do the right thing or get swept aside in 2022. Establishment Senators are next on the list.

The Dems are on a roll! Anyone having “anything” to do with Trump is coming under fire. Guiliani’s home got raided by the FBI, Roger Stone” is under investigation by the IRS, Cyrus Vance just got Trump’s IRS returns,Jason Kuschner is being “investigated” for over charging tenants, Matt Gentz is a “pervert” with a 17 yr. old, & the list goes on & on! WHERE ‘s the FBI? NOT “looking” @ Antifa, Marxists, Drug gangs, human trafficking OR terrorists coming into the USA! LEAST of all BIDEN, his son OR his “Chinese connection”” Washington “the SWAMP” led by Pelosi & Schumer “IS” totally embedded & America is SICK of it!

He’s a BIG THREAT to the left, which is “why”they want to take him down. No “clue” if he’s single, married or gay. WHO CARES?He speaks for “US” who believes in the Constitution, Right for life, 2nd Amendment Rights, & FREE SPEECH! “Other” than some “made up scandals, “WHAT else can “they accuse him of??
