UPDATE 12:45 pm – A State Central Committee member just spoke about the risk of Republican conventions being attacked by “Antifa” and/or “Black Lives Matter.” Seriously..
As the Virginia GOP continues to fail in its (futile?) efforts to agree on a method of nomination (unassembled convention or primary – see here for a live blog of its 12/5/20 meeting, which was basically a dumpster fire) for its 2021 statewide candidates, the frustration and interpersonal nastiness seems to be increasing. For instance, check out the following comments from a few minutes ago, in the currently ongoing/seemingly interminable Virginia GOP meeting, by Virginia GOP State Central Committee member Willie Deutsch. And just be thankful that we have a functional, sane party in Virginia – namely, the Democratic Party of Virginia!
“We have been compared to Pelosi, votes were stolen, egotistical, Three Stooges, marching people into a wall, disenfranchising, and now to call a national committeewoman a witch, if not much worse. Other meetings, we have had cursing on this call. The last meeting devolved into people yelling. There comes a time when we have to come together as a party and stop the VICIOUS incivility and attacks that have been coming from one side. We have voted now, we’re going to vote for a third time, it is time to move forward as a party and respect each other as party members and get ready for war in November.”
