The GOP has long practiced the political tactic of "decapitation" -- a strategy of taking out the other party's top leadership. Former Democratic House Speaker Tom Foley (D-WA) lost his seat in the Gingrich Revolution in the 1994 election. Former Democratic Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle lost his seat in 2004.
Now Brent Bozell, a conservative media entertainment complex troll (Media Research Center) and the president and treasurer of a Virginia non-profit corporation called America, Inc., operating as ForAmerica, is plotting a "decapitation" strategy against the GOP leadership in Congress. Brent Bozell Will Try To Remove Every GOP Leader From Office:
ForAmerica announced Tuesday that it's pouring six-figures into its "Dump The Leadership" campaign.
It probably won't come as a surprise that the man behind the group is none other than L. Brent Bozell III, the right-wing flamethrower who's proven himself plenty willing to take on the GOP establishment.
After Paul Ryan hashed out a bipartisan budget deal late last year, Bozell predicted that the conservative base would "stampede away from a party that has lost its principles and bearings.”
"Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes," Bozell told CNN in a statement.
Bozell said the group will use digital ads between now and November to target House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX).
Wait, why not GOP "budget guru" Paul Ryan (R-WI)? C'mon you slacker!
ForAmerica describes itself as "an online army of over 4.5 million people." You mean internet trolls? Hence the digital ads.
This raises some questions that need to be asked and researched by reporters, such as who are really the financial contributors behind Bozell's decapitation strategy hiding in the "dark money" shadows of his ForAmerica non-profit corporation? Who are the candidates Bozell is backing in GOP primaries against the GOP leadership? To whom are these candidates beholden and owe their loyalties? And shouldn't these far-right radical extremists just start their own damn political party instead of engaging in civil war against the GOP?
