Madison Cawthorn

The sheer embarrassment that is Madison Cawthorn, continued

Apparently "focusing on comms" means just making shit up:

Speaking on the House floor on Thursday to criticize the Biden administration's handling of the economy, Cawthorn said, "It was Thomas Jefferson that said, 'Facts are stubborn things. And whatever may be our wishes, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.' "

This is a famous quote from John Adams, not Jefferson. (Cawthorn omitted two of Adams' words in the quote.) Adams uttered it in 1770 while serving as defense lawyer for British soldiers who had been charged with murder in the Boston Massacre.

Using my Jeff Foxworthy voice: "If you go to the trouble to memorize almost an entire quote, but you get the author of the quote wrong, you just might be an idiot." It's also noteworthy that Adams did not rely on facts in his defense of the British soldiers, he used racism and hyperbole to attack the character of the people who were shot by those soldiers. But back to Maddy and his tortured history:

Madison Cawthorn takes credit for funding he opposed

How can you tell if he's lying? Because his mouth is moving:

The official account for Cawthorn, the 25-year-old Republican from Hendersonville, tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he was “happy” to see needed money go to four health clinics in his district that help vulnerable residents. Not only that, he was “Proud to see tax-payer dollars returned to NC-11.”

As Cardinal & Pine previously reported, Cawthorn skipped the vote to give a speech to conservative activists, where he criticized the bill as a waste of money and a handout that would foster laziness and dependency.

Dude is shameless, just one lie after another. Apparently "focusing on comms" is code for saying anything, regardless of the truthfulness of it. Here's more on Madi's lust for media exposure:

Here we go again: Bo Hines plans to challenge Virginia Foxx

Another Madison Cawthorn but without the wheelchair:

Hines said football has helped prepare him for a possible future in Congress. Hines describes himself as a traditional pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservative but said he has some differences with Foxx he plans to hammer.

"My constituents are worried about tech censorship," Hines said. "That's something I don't think Congresswoman Foxx has hit on much. ... We have a very America First agenda. We’re going to press that hard. I think the American people understand capitalism is the best way to grow the economy ... but also want fair trade."

I will leave that football comment alone so close after the Tom Brady Bowl, other than to say: It also prepared Gerald Ford for Congress, but apparently not for stair-climbing or snow-skiing. That "tech censorship" thing is either a whine about Trump being booted from Twitter, or Bo's buddies being forced to go to Parler for racist insurrectionist talk. Not home-schooled like Cawthorn, but he did graduate from a Christian high school. *sigh*

Madison Cawthorn tries (and fails) to justify seditious rhetoric

Pretty sure he flunked out of homeschool:

You know, this is exactly what happened in the Revolutionary War. You know, we just felt like we didn't have any representation so people wanted to go and fight because of that.

It was *nothing* like what happened in the Revolutionary War, you twit. In the 1760's the British Parliament passed numerous restrictive acts on the Colonies, which included several forms of taxation (without representation). But it wasn't just the money being squeezed out of colonists, the Quartering Act required the colonists to house and feed the very Crown soldiers who were oppressing them. Those troops literally booted families out of their homes and moved in, with zero compensation. 80 million Americans voted Trump out of office, but you chose to ignore the will of the people. Just like George III did. Maddy is not much for critical thinking, either:

This little before and after tells you all you need to know:

"Get ready, the fate of a nation rests on our shoulders, yours and mine. Let’s show Washington that our backbones are made of steel and titanium. It’s time to fight."

“I don't feel I had any responsibility for them attacking the Capitol,” Cawthorn said. “It was despicable. They are thugs.”

This guy is so deeply, madly in love with himself he needs to get a room. With a strong lock on it:

Another thing voters need to know about Maddy Cawthorn

As this election season moves into the final stages, it's worth recapping the pros and cons of candidates surrounded by controversy. One of least appealing among them is the guy named Madison Cawthorn. He's pictured here, wrapped in the American flag, insulting patriots and veterans who fought and died to protect the country it stands for.

Any true patriot knows that treating the flag like an overcoat expressly violates the US Flag Code:
