Last Tuesday’s GOP primary runoff in Mississippi is turning out to be the most revealing incident in the protracted fight between the conservative grassroots and the RHINO GOP establishment. The RHINO GOP party leadership has been exposed for their true dirty motives in front of all the party faithful.

Over the past few years, we have been told by some of the inside-the-beltway “conservatives” that the RHINO GOP schism is overblown, that it is merely a disagreement over strategy. We have also been told that the grassroots tea party has been too purist in their expectations of how Republicans can govern when they only control the House of Representatives. These “conservatives” asserted that the party leadership was just as committed to fighting Obamacare and the growth of government, they just lacked the political power to do so. We were assured that as soon as they win just one more election, they will fight for tea party conservative issues.

We have always known that the intra-party divide encompassed a lot more than disagreements over strategy, rather it cut to the core of many policy issues. It manifested in issues like full repeal of Obamacare, the debt ceiling, bailouts, immigration, so-called social issues, and corporate welfare. However, last week’s runoff in Mississippi showed us that RHINO GOP leadership fundamentally doesn’t share our conservative values.
With conservative Chris McDaniel leading by roughly 8-10 points in the pre-runoff polling, the Cochran campaign, with the full support of the Mississippi RHINO GOP establishment and the NRSC, abandoned the party platform in support of Democrat votes. It’s bad enough to deliberately and systematically override the will of the party voters in a primary, but it would have been worth it had the Cochran campaign attracted Democrat voters on a conservative message.

Instead, Cochran doubled down on a pro-earmark message and waged a demagogic scaremongering campaign over food stamps, federal education funding, and race.

RHINO Allied PACs paid for ads insinuating that McDaniel and conservatives would cut funding for programs and criticized him for being “disrespectful” to the first African-American president.

Encouraging black voters to help stop the “racist” Tea Party is not a winning Republican message, and it doesn’t broaden the RHINO Republican base. Indeed, many of the people involved said openly they would be voting for the Democrat in the general election – which is technically illegal under Mississippi law.

Worse, we now have Democrat party officials on record as saying they were asked to help steal the election and not hand over the polling books to GOP clerks so they could prevent Democrats from double voting in the primary and runoff.

The McDaniel campaign claims to have already found roughly 2,000 illegitimate ballots from combing through the books of just a few counties.

Yet, astoundingly, several RHINO GOP senators have actually expressed glee and approval of Cochran’s tactic for winning the primary.
Mississippi’s junior senator, Roger Wicker (R-MS), scoffed at the notion there is anything wrong with the insidious campaign tactics: “Going out and broadening the base of the party, asking more Mississippians to participate in the ballot that was going to determine the next senator? No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that,” said Wicker.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) dismissed the concerns of conservatives: “I’m for more people voting, not less people voting.”

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) told the AZ Central that Cochran’s strategy was good for the party: “There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.”

The rationale of these senators is as sound as someone defending Benedict Arnold’s treachery as an innovative way to expand American forces in the region. Getting Democrats to vote in a GOP primary solely on a message that is an anathema to the Party is not a form of expanding the base; it is destroying our base and expanding the other party.

Perforce, it is clear from the repugnant tactics of the GOP establishment that they fundamentally don’t share our values. They are looking to replace their own base with new voters. The irony is that these voters will never support them in the general election because they were not inspired to join the tent with a message of upward mobility and liberty; they were instigated to tear down the RHINO GOP tent.

Last week, President Obama told his supporters that a number of Republicans have privately expressed a desire to work with him, ”but they can’t be too friendly toward me because they’d be run out of town by the Tea Party.” Similarly, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) expressed hope that “mainstream” RHINO Republicans would gain the upper hand within the party.

After the Mississippi massacre last week, it is no surprise that Obama and the Democrats don’t fear the RHINO GOP establishment. They know that in the long-run, they will help broaden the Democrat Party base.

DIRTY RHINO’S exposed by Glenn Beck

“I’m just sick to my stomach,” Glenn said. “I thought I was living in the country where liberty had a chance, where fair play had a chance, where we weren’t talking about a GOP – a Grand Old Party, emphasis on old, outdated, dusty, irrelevant, and never ever going to see a dime from people like me ever again. I really thought that we had a chance of some common sense. But no, no, no.”
“Now, I have a question for every black Democrat in Mississippi. What the hell has this 90-year-old fart – a white Republican, the same white Republican that for years the Democrats had been telling you are nothing but old racists – you tell me exactly what Thad Cochran did for you,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “What the GOP did is they reached out to the black Democrats and got the black Democrats to vote… So they’re much more comfortable with having Democrats come out and vote than having their base come out and vote.”

As Stu explained, many several establishment RHINO Republicans gave both their endorsement and money to the Cochran campaign. Breitbart reports Cochran’s Mississppi colleague Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) along with Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL), Rob Portman (R-OH), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Barrasso (R-WY), John Thune (R-SD), John Cornyn (R-TX), Bob Corker (R-TN), Susan Collins (R-ME), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Dean Heller (R-NV), Richard Shelby (R-AL), and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) all lined up to support the entrenched politician.

“Absolutely unbelievable,” Glenn said. “[But] let’s look at the good news. This means… King Obama has done it. Race relations are healed. Because when you can get an old white southern Republican lighting a fire under people – 40% increase in African-American voting – we have been healed. Everybody go to the ocean and look because the sea level is going to start going down at any moment.”

“Amazing thing: Not only has it been healed, it’s been healed in the last few weeks because none of these people decided to vote for Thad Cochran initially,” Stu added. “They just all decided in the last few weeks how important he was for the state of Mississippi, [and] they had to turn out yesterday.”
