In a not-so-surprising but annoying move, a handful of RINO Republicans voted with the Democrats to maintain and expand wasteful DEI positions in the Pentagon. This decision betrays the core conservative values of limited government and merit-based hiring. While it’s sadly expected from these weak-spined lawmakers, they still need to hear from us loudly that they messed up. Here’s a breakdown of these Republicans, complete with their contact info, so you can let them know just how much they let us down.

Historically, Americans have fiercely held politicians accountable. Consider the famous tarring and feathering of Loyalist tax collector John Malcolm in 1774, a vivid example of how citizens took direct action against those who betrayed their trust. While we might not resort to such extreme measures today, we can still fight back with our words and pens. Flood their offices with calls, emails, and letters. Let them know that their betrayal will not be forgotten and that they have failed those who put them in office. Our duty is to ensure they understand the consequences of their actions and remind them that true conservatives will not stand for their betrayal.
