Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, is now claiming that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyom) was ‘canceled’ by being voted out of leadership by her fellow Republicans on Wednesday morning.

As The Hill reports:


As House conservatives banded together Wednesday to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) from the GOP leadership ranks, one conservative lawmaker was sounding a discordant note, warning that Cheney had been “canceled” in the same manner Republicans have condemned.

“Liz Cheney was canceled today for speaking her mind and disagreeing with the narrative that President Trump has put forth,” Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) told reporters in the Capitol.

Buck, a member of the far-right Freedom Caucus, suggested Cheney has every right to air her grievances with former President Trump and his false narrative surrounding his election defeat, even from a leadership position. That criticism was the reason she was dumped from the No. 3 leadership spot on Wednesday.

Most conservatives, backing Trump, said Cheney was the wrong fit to remain conference chairwoman, since her message bucked that coming from other Republican leaders.

Is Buck right that Cheney was ‘canceled’ for speaking her mind, or did her previous obnoxious comments denigrating former President Trump make her a RINO who was asking to be removed? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Freedom of speech is freedom of speech. I am a staunch conservative and I didn’t care for Cheney’s words or ideology but it’s her right to speak her mind. The concern I have/had was related to the fracture that has/does exist in the Republican party and has been there for too long. The Democrats (as left as they’ve become), have stayed relatively unified even in the face of so many obvious lies and false narratives that are spewed out of their collective mouths.

The Republican Party could learn a lesson from them about being united (or even appearing to be united), around a conservative party leader and form a unified voice to combat the serious leftist forces that are rapidly destroying our country. My concern however, is that too many Republicans are more worried about keeping their luxurious political careers in tact than actually fixing the problems of this country. They say just enough to convince the voting public to reelect them, but they do very little to fix or confront the problems.

That’s where Trump was so effective, he wasn’t afraid to state the truth no matter how much it hurt (him politically, or peoples feelings because they can’t handle the truth because they’ve been molly coddled far too long. Time to put our big boy/big girl pants and face reality.)

If you look at Cheney’s voting record, she actually voted in-line with most of Trump’s agenda (more so than her proposed replacement did). So, tell me, what was the real reason behind her ouster from a leadership position? Probably just another example of the Republicans eating their own. And until they stop doing that and focus on the real problem at hand (the far left), we will never see another Republican elected to the presidency because the left will control the narrative, and they will control the means to be elected by cementing their illegal voting tactics which includes millions of illegal aliens getting a fast-track to citizenship and you know who they’re going to vote for – “the hand that feeds them”!

Of course the liberals stay together on message, 1 – it is their religion, literally they are in a cult 2- The media are of the same religion….pretty simple. True bravery in this day and age are political conservatives like Ron Desantis and Josh Hawley who speak their minds despite the media induced consequences. Liz Cheney voted with Trump over 90% of the time but now the media loves her and she’s invited to the elitists parties again.

It was not the way she may have voted–It was what she said about President Trump. From a position of power –words mean so much more than just holding your tongue.. Like in the old adage “if you cannot say something good about someone do not say anything”

You cannot represent the Republicans from a position of Power and then vote with the Demomarxists. She got what was coming to a Quisling. Cheney is a RINO. She hated President Trump and spoke against him continuously. The Republicans voters in Wyoming will hopefully give her a send off into obscurity.
