The Mass GOP is a huge dumpster fire right now (and always). In the last couple weeks some lady named Deb Martell who does something for them made a comment about a gay guy running for Congress against Jim McGovern because she had an issue with the gay guy adopting kids. Twenty-nine out of the 30 GOP State Reps voted to remove her, but Mass GOP Chairman Jim Lyons defended her in the name of not giving into cancel culture. Personally I think he did the right thing, but I just don’t care enough about the internal squabbling of a “party” with absolutely no power whatsoever and no prospects for it. It turned into a whole thing and was very dumb, as is required when Diana Ploss is involved, and I’m sure Democrats had a good laugh over it all.
This week’s they’ve been fundraising on the promise of Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw speaking at GOP President Jim Lyons’ house in Andover on father’s day.
Minimum donation was $100, and they’ve been promoting it pretty heavily.
As you can see they were promoting it and accepting donations for the event as of 6 PM on Monday, June 14.
Then out of nowhere tonight the Mass GOP announced that Jim Lyons was cancelling the event, and then blamed it on cancel culture, despite apparently not having any clue what cancel culture is.
This is so embarrassing. You literally cancelled your own event because you were afraid of protesters. It’s not cancel culture if you cancel yourselves, boomer.
Cancel culture only exists because weak people allow it to. I invented cancel culture, it took me down, and now I’ve mastered it. Cancel culture is a war of attrition, and you must go on offense while playing defense. If you’re the type to empower people like this by giving into them then you simply weren’t built for this game.
Was this even real? I can’t get a straight answer from the Mass GOP. I’m not saying it wasn’t, but I haven’t heard a WORD about Crenshaw coming to Massachusetts from Crenshaw, or anyone else outside the Mass GOP. There’s certainly no buzz in the SJW protesting community about it. The Mass GOP simply isn’t relevant enough in its current form for SJWs to waste their time with. They don’t see it as a threat at all, nor should they. Democrats control 37 of the 40 State Senate seats. They took over sheriff’s offices, state rep seats, and Trump lost 40 towns that he won in 2016. The Mass GOP is the Washington Generals of politics.
My question is, how much money was raised off this event? Will the donors be given refunds? And why are they wasting money paying people like Dan Crenshaw to come here and give speeches when they should be investing in local town elections. The Democrats win because they don’t give up ANY SEAT ANYWHERE! They went after School Committees everywhere, they won, and then they shut down the schools and we couldn’t do anything about it.
You can still win something as a minority party though, you just have to Balkanize. Move out of cities and places Republicans can’t win, invest in those towns, take over, run your communities like you don’t even live in the most liberal state in the country. I ran for School Committee with 2 other Republicans and none of us heard from the Mass GOP. Meanwhile the Democrats were organized and invested in getting out the vote. This despite Jim Lyons’ fundraising promise to “recruit conservative candidates across the Commonwealth.”
Who have they recruited exactly?
If you’re going to survive in Massachusetts you better have balls. Hiding a war hero and public figure from some rag tag protesters in Andover is pathetic, and quite frankly shady.
