Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) is vowing to avenge his Republican primary loss.
Cawthorn, who was rocked by numerous scandals, was defeated by an Establishment Republican in his North Carolina congressional race.
His concession speech was graceful, but his departure will be anything but quiet.
“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. This list includes the lion share of figures that came to my defense when it was not politically profitable,” he declared on Instagram.
Cawthorn listed Tucker Carlson, President Trump, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar and Steve Bannon among the patriots he admires.
“At the beginning of a change the patriot is a rare and hated man,” he wrote. “These are those rare and hated men/women. There are other National figures who I believe are patriots.”
But then Cawthorn took an ominous turn.
“I am on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal,” he wrote.
“The time for gentile 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 continued. “We have an enemy to defeat, but we will never be able to defeat them until we defeat the cowardly and weak members of our own party. Their days are numbered. We are coming.”
Cawthorn may have made an inadvertent typographical error. I suspect he meant to write “genteel politics.”
Otherwise, Mr. Cawthorn is suggesting that only Jews should be qualified to run for office.
