  • Liz Cheney Wins Profile in Courage Award

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) won the prestigious John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award on Sunday, and she warned in her acceptance remarks that former President Donald Trump remains one of the greatest threats to American democracy.

    “President Kennedy said, ‘In the long history of freedom, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger,’” Cheney told attendees at the event in Boston. “Today, that role is ours as we face a threat we have never faced before: a former president attempting to unravel our constitutional republic.”

    At this moment, we must all summon the courage to stand against that,” she said.

    Cheney, who is vice chair of the House committee investigating what led up to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, is one of just two Republicans in Congress willing to be part of the panel. For nearly a year, it has been connecting the dots between Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election by spreading a lie about widespread voter fraud — and then directing his supporters to storm the Capitol to stop lawmakers from certifying Joe Biden as the president.

      Shooting your mouth off is an act of courage?

        That's Dick Cheney's daughter -- where's your Republican loyalty, my dear friend?

          She's now the "crazy liberal" in the republican party. It's insane that a moderate republican is now considered the exception to the radicals that have taken over the party.

            Or maybe you're just clueless about me and always have been?

          It’s become an act of courage to tell the truth about Trump in your GOP.

          Why?

            Political stunting isn't truth.

          This is your way of avoiding any reckoning or actual rebuttal to the substance of her speech.

          Typical for you.

            It’s a “stunt” to note that Trump lost 2020 fair and square?

            Thanks for the confirmation that the right has left reality.

              Not doing the kkk thing, guys. BB might not have seen it before, so we’ll give the benefit of the doubt and just change the post.

                Man, what a low bar that’s been set now. All you’ve gotta do to win a Profile in Courage award in the GOP these days is just not support a fascist authoritarian coup. 🤦‍♂️

                  You have actually been nominated for some very prestigious Orange Huddle Awards. I'll be making the thread in the distant future and let everyone know about this very important community-building activity.

                        With the added distinction that you didn’t vote with tRump 93% of the time. 😏

                            All she has to do to become a democrat star is to complete her transition.

                              Typical bad take. She has one of the most conservative voting records in the GOP house. And y’all are running her out of the party because unlike anybody else she’s being honest and opposing Trump. Shameful and disgraceful. Seriously, you should be embarrassed.

                            She won't be around much longer. After Wyoming votes her out of office the Dems won't have any use for her either.

                              Why would the Dems have any use for her. She’s not a Democrat. The GOP would rather have some lunatic moron in her seat.

                            Funny how Trump has made conservatives eat their own.

                              And to do so proudly, with apparently no shame.

                                Speaking the truth is verboten in the GOP aka TrumpCult.

                                      They wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked them in the ass. Truth is whatever Trump, Tucker, Hannity, and the other morons at Faux say it is.

                                      Sad!

                                        She's an endangered species -- a Republican that cares about America.
