Tucker Carlson Cooks Democrat in Republican Clothing Senator Mike Braun

Am I still crazy for saying the Republican leadership class are essentially all Democrats who just want to do favors for big business donors?

Below, Mike Braun tries to justify his stated support for Black Lives Matter as well as his support for making it easy for leftwing agitators to sue policemen, personally, whenever they feel like it.

His defense of this, which he repeats endlessly, is that "if we don't join in the conversation, we'll be on the sidelines, and Democrats will run circles around us."

In other words: If we don't propose our own Black Lives Matter-pandering leftwing legislation, then the Democrats will leave us out of the process of passing leftwing legislation, and we won't be able to claim a piece of that Big Win.

This is your Republican Party, folks. Pushing leftwing extremism so that we're not left out of the Leftwing Extremism Debate.

Via RedState, here's an excerpt from Washington Examiner's coverage.

Braun told Carlson that he felt Republicans need to go after qualified immunity because Democrats were going to "make hay of this" in the 2020 elections. Carlson asked Braun why he cared what Democrats were doing.

"Who controls the Senate? Does Chuck Schumer control it? I thought Republicans controlled the Senate. And so you're taking your cues from Chuck Schumer? You’re saying Chuck Schumer might criticize me; therefore, I have to pass a law that makes it easier to sue police?" he asked.

Carlson asked him pointedly if Braun thought Republicans would keep the Senate "running on this platform." That is: Chuck Schumer's platform.

It's time to purge them all.
