STAY IN LINE
In this “Heil Leader” political era, Republicans who don’t follow current party “standards” are finding themselves on the outs. Witness the removal of Michigan’s 6th Congressional District (Kalamazoo) treasurer Jason Watts, who spoke out against former President Trump after he contracted COVID-19. Watts had been a member of the Republican Party for over 20 years. A Michigan Republican Party committee tried – and failed – to censure Reps. Peter Meijer (R-Grand Rapids) and Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph) for voting to impeach Trump for his role in the January 6 insurrection at the Capital building. And a state board of canvasser who voted to certify the 2020 election last November, Aaron Van Langevelde, has been dumped in favor of Tony Daunt, executive director of the Michigan Freedom Fund. Be careful. The walls have ears.
