North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn doesn’t seem to be handling his recent primary loss well.
On Thursday, the scandal-ridden Congressman denounced those who turned their backs on him and called for “Dark MAGA” to take control of the Republican Party.
Fox News reports:
“When the establishment turned their guns on me, when the Uni-party coalesced to defeat an America First member very few people had my back,” the North Carolina congressman wrote on Instagram. He included a list of people who he said “came to my defense when it was not politically profitable.” It included former President Donald Trump, Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz, Steve Bannon and Sen. Rand Paul, among others.
“These are honorable men and women who are the type of friends anyone yearns to have,” he continued. ‘At the beginning of a change the patriot is a rare and hated man.’ These are those rare and hated men/women.”
He continued to say he was “on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal. The time for genteel politics as usual has come to an end. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command.”
He added that there is an “enemy to defeat” in the Democratic Party but first the “cowardly and weak” Republican members would need to go.
Despite a series of scandals Cawthorn managed to be endorsed by former President Trump, however even with the support from the former president Cawthorn still narrowly lost the Republican primary nomination to state Sen. Chuck Edwards.
