Romney, Cheney, Kinzinger condemn fellow Republicans for speaking at pro-Putin event

Three veteran Republican lawmakers have called out Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar for speaking at a white nationalist event.

In a tweet, Representative Liz Cheney, criticeized their speaking appearance saying, “As Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and Representative Paul Gosar speak at this white supremacist, anti-Semitic, pro-Putin event, selince by Republican Party leaders is deafening and enabling. All Americans should renounce this garbage and reject the Putin wing of the GOP now.”

Representative Adam Kinzinger tweeted at Greene saying, “I am going to play it. You spoke to a white supremacy group. You are defending your presence there. If this was not bizarro world, you would be the one censured and excommunicated from the GOP. You will lose ultimately, just like Putin. And people will curse your name.” 

Senator Mitt Romney also joined the criticism saying “Liz Cheney was right with the statement and has been right for a long time. There’s no place in either political party for this white nationalism or racism. It’s simply wrong. Anybody that would sit down with white nationalists and speak at their conference was certainly missing a few IQ points” [Market Watch].

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE before moving to Sioux Falls, SD to attend college at Augustana University. This past May I graduated from Augustana with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Biology with an emphasis in Allied Health. I first discovered FBA through my involvement with Turning Point USA where I worked as a Campus Coordinator in college. I have a passion for politics and activism, and was drawn to FBA’s dedication to spreading the truth. Unbiased news is rare in today’s society, so I wanted to be a part of FBA’s mission to change that.
