    GOP Infighting: Current, Former Republican Legislators Say Party Purists Engaging In Liberal Tactics – By Phil Watson (IB Times) / February 19 2021

    There have been visible signs of division among Republicans since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president in 2015. With Trump no longer in the White House, those divisions are still readily apparent as the party tries to chart its path for the 2022 mid-term elections and beyond.

    On Thursday, the Senate’s No. 2 Republican lashed out at activists and party leaders within the GOP for engaging in the very same behavior for which they criticize Democrats.

    Sen. John Thune of South Dakota says the rush by state GOP bodies to censure lawmakers who supported Trump’s impeachment are engaging in the same “cancel culture” they claim to loathe.

    “There was a strong case made,” Thune said of Trump’s trial in the Senate. “People could come to different conclusions. If we’re going to criticize the media and the left for cancel culture, we can’t be doing that ourselves.”
