Liz Cheney Editorial Cartoons

May 13, 2021

It is only natural that we stand with Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney. That is what folks like you and me do as we defend our democracy against the enemies of free and fair elections. It matters not that she is a conservative or I a liberal. At the end of the day, those who understand the grand narrative of our nation, the idea of what started this nation, and the foundations of the republic itself make us as one when confronted with villainy.

What we witnessed with the lies and undermining of the election results from Donald Trump and his sycophants last fall, and the deadly insurrection of our national Capitol in January alerts us to the dangers pressed upon us from those adhering to illiberal democratic desires. We have seen the lengths to which corrupt people will go to further their aims.

This week before the Republican caucus Cheney closed her remarks by reminding her fellow members that regardless of party label the oath they swore when they took office requires that “we love our country so much” that “we will stand above politics to defend her. That we will do everything in our power to protect our Constitution and our freedom that has been paid for by the blood of so many. . . That is our duty.”

And then the conservatives and Trump boot-lickers removed her from party leadership. In so doing they defined themselves. It was not an outcome that anyone who has studied our founding principles can find any pleasure within.
