Rep. Kinzinger said, “We may have our deep differences on other policy issues, but we are all Americans, and I want to thank you for holding that line.”
Rep. Kinzinger is solidly a Republican, so it is a shame that Kevin McCarthy and the House Republican caucus are trying to drum Kinzinger out of their party for doing his patriotic duty.
Kinzinger is correct. He doesn’t have much in common with Democrats in terms of policy, but just like the Democrats, he clearly loves his country, and views getting to the truth of 1/6 as his patriotic duty.
It is a shame that there is no longer a place for American patriots in Donald Trump’s Republican Party.
