Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 17, 2021

Calling former President Donald J. Trump "a cancer for the country," Representative Anthony Gonzalez, Republican of Ohio, said in an interview on Thursday that he would not run for re-election in 2022, ceding his seat after just two terms in Congress rather than compete against a Trump-backed primary opponent.

Unlike Trumpers, cancer can be treated and cured.

We've made great strides in battling cancer.

But we are losing ground in the battle against fascism.

"Mr. Gonzalez was emphatic that the threats were not why he was leaving " the commute was more trying, he said " but in a matter-of-fact fashion, he recounted people online saying things like, 'We're coming to your house.'"

Feral Trumpers indeed.

Republican propaganda is the cancer. Trump was just the biggest most harmful lump created by the cancer so far.

He'd never have been elected without rupert murdoch rotting the minds of americans for 20 years beforehand.

R's hate independent thinking. Group-think for the win! Dumb heritage, religion, and culture will lead us to the past.

I hope Trump threatens to beat him up, lmao.

I would pay to see that cage match.

"Donald Trump did not hijack American conservatism; in him it reached its logical culmination. The defining characteristics of post-1980 conservatism"its authoritarianism; denigration of reason and education; obsession with power at all costs; Manichean, black and white thinking; apocalyptic, religious fundamentalist mentality; paranoia and sense of being besieged even when in power; and gangsterish deceit, bad faith, and lack of principle, whether practiced by a transparent swindler like Trump or a supposed intellectual like Newt Gingrich"must lead to nihilism and mindless destruction."

Gonzalez should run as an independent and caucus with the dems if he wins.

Good luck to him. But it's very likely he's simply giving the seat to a Trumper, without a fight.
