The GOP’s New Strategy Document Shows Party Leaders Still Don’t Get It

Revolver, March 3, 2021

The Republican Party’s leaders still don’t get it.

That’s the big takeaway from a newly-released strategy document from the largest Super PAC backing Republican House candidates.

The Congressional Leadership Fund spent $140 million in the 2020 cycle, and could very well spend even more in 2022. It will hold enormous sway over what candidates are recruited in next year’s House races, and what their message is.

Republicans substantially outperformed expectations in 2020’s House elections. While more forecasters predicted Democrats would gain a dozen seats or more, they instead lost 13 and emerged with one of the narrowest House majorities ever. There were many reasons for those gains. President Trump drove a dramatic surge in Republican turnout, but it was more than that. Millions of voters saw Democrats push an agenda of mass rioting and cultural arson and were understandably repulsed. {snip}

But according to CLF head Dan Conston in a newly-released memo, the victory came down to one thing: Putting a new, more “diverse” gloss on the tired pre-2016 Republican Party.

In 2020, all 15 of the seats Republicans flipped were won by a woman, a minority, or a veteran. They were candidates of character, heroism, and achievement. That’s not by accident. Leader McCarthy made it a priority from the outset to find strong candidates with compelling life stories that reflect their districts. [CLF]

In other words, the secret to GOP success going forward is to completely buy into the globalist left’s toxic ideology reducing people to identity checklists. And of course, when making that checklist, being a woman is better than being a man, and being “of color” is superior to being white.


Along with recruiting diversity-checklist candidates, CLF names only one ideological priority on its list of bullet points for winning in 2022:

We will win back the Majority if we’re clear-eyed about the obstacles in front of us, apply the lessons learned from 2020 and follow our plan to victory. It starts with these early keys:
• Continuing the recruitment success of 2020
• Fixing the GOP’s massive candidate-side fundraising problem
• Aggressively spotlighting the left’s socialist overreach & painting a contrast
• Heeding the opportunities and challenges in redistricting
• 50 opportunities to win 5 districts – maximizing our battlefield to retake the majority

Socialism? The House GOP’s go-to attack for the Democrats in 2022 is socialism? 

{snip} Democrats aren’t trying to nationalize the means of production or core national industries. They aren’t even making a bid for single-payer healthcare. Instead, they are launching a Maoist-style revolution to overthrow America’s history and its entire social order, so that it can be replaced with a new anarcho-tyrannical racial caste system. {snip}

The way to oppose this demented ideology is to name it for exactly what it is and offer a durable, transformative alternative vision of government that doesn’t simply accept every substantive premise the Regime’s corrupt ruling class operates on. {snip}
