Once again, money rears its head in Republican politics…


Today’s talking points have arrived…

GOP Quietly Backs Off Attacking Bud Light—Its Own Major Donor

The NRCC put out and then swiftly deleted a direct attack on Bud Light, whose parent company donated nearly $500,000 to its candidates in the most recent campaign cycle.

The National Republican Congressional Committee quietly deleted a fundraising page Saturday that took aim at one of their largest donors, the parent company of Bud Light, Anheuser-Busch.

The NRCC’s backpedalling follows conservatives calling for a boycott of the beer company after they partnered with transgender TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney.

On Saturday morning, the powerful committee that provides support to Republican congressional campaigns blasted out a tweet calling for supporters to donate to the NRCC and, in exchange, be given a custom drink koozie.

“Thanks to Dylan Mulvaney, we can all finally admit that Bud Light tastes like water,” the NRCC said in a since-deleted tweet that The Daily Beast reviewed and can be seen below. “With our new koozie’s, you can make sure no one confuses Bud Light with real beer ever again.” <Read More>

Donald Trump Jr. calls for end to Bud Light boycott

Donald Trump Jr. says boycotts of Bud Light should end, telling his fans on Rumble the company’s conservative credentials are solid and the outrage over its partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney was unjustified.

Bud Light — and its parent company Anheuser-Busch — have faced a firestorm of controversy from many in their core audience after using Mulvaney in its marketing.

“We looked into the political giving and lobbying history of Anheuser-Busch. And guess what? They actually support Republicans,” said the former first son on Rumble. <Read More>

Bottom line…

Both the GOP and clueless Junior are missing the point.

Instead of traditional images associating their beer (if you can call it that) with manly pursuits like NASCAR or even neutral parties or family fun picnics, the company listened to a woke executive and opened up male beer drinkers to ridicule and scorn as the product is now associated with a delusional wussie who believes that Jedi mind tricks, drugs, surgery, or cosplay and makeup can turn a biological male into a biological female.

It’s not that I care what people do on their own time, just don’t demand others recognize and celebrate their delusions or deviancy from the traditional roles of men and women.

What I do care about is that women are accorded certain privacy and privileges in our society, many codified into law or carried by tradition – and the cultural Marxists are hell-bent on destroying traditions, norms, and institutions like the nuclear family.

Call me a curmudgeonly traditionalist, but I do not believe that men self-identifying as women have a place in woman’s bathrooms, locker rooms, prisons, or sports. That men self-identifying as women should be given education, employment, or other opportunities like government contracting preferences.

I also believe that allowing any child under the age of majority to agree to life-altering medical treatments when they are legally prohibited from engaging in consenting sexual activities is a form of child abuse.

While I do recognize that there are medical exceptions regarding those who suffer from gender dysphoria, a term that describes a sense of unease that an individual may have because of a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity preference, I am also aware of cases where disaffected children self-assume a transgender persona to attract attention, fit in with a particular group, please a parent, teacher or a person of trust -- or simply to achieve a sense of belonging.

While the sense of unease or dissatisfaction of gender dysphoria may be so intense it can lead to depression, anxiety, suicide, and have a harmful impact on daily life, this is a psychological emergency best treated by competent medical professionals, not advocates or activists.

According to one research study, “Data indicate that 82% of transgender individuals have considered killing themselves and 40% have attempted suicide, with suicidality highest among transgender youth.” I would posit that the influence of certain parents, teachers, advocates, and activists may be tantamount to handing a child a loaded gun and suggesting a game of Russian Roulette.

We are so screwed when we let the progressive communist democrats destroy America and its traditional cultural values.
