As Washington Watcher II put in They Just Don’t Hate Marjorie Taylor Greene—They Hate The Historic American Nation on Thursday evening

“New Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene received the Steve King treatment this week. In an unprecedented move, Democrats in the House of Representatives overrode her fellow Republicans to strip her of her committee assignments”.

It is hard to overstate what a disaster this is. Over only pro-forma opposition from the Republican House Leadership, the Democrats have seized the right to dictate to their opponents that their Congresswoman should not be employed, based on her opinions.

This strikes at the root of parliamentary process. Individuals of different views are supposed to come together to compare opinions and see who can command a majority. Crippling their functionality is totally inimical to this process and so is wresting the prerogative of management of their supporters from the Minority Party.

Actually expelling a member for Wrongthink is next. It is probably not far away, as no doubt all GOP Congresscritters realize.

The fact is that parliamentary government was a phenomenon of the British Isles. The shallower the roots American politicians have in the Anglophone tradition, the more we can expect to see these atrocities.

One such atrocity was the fact that 11 Republican Congresscritters voted against Taylor Greene, being immediately idolized by the MSM: Here are the 11 House Republicans who voted to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments by Paul LeBlanc, CNN, Thu February 4, 2021.

I thought to evaluate these traitors against the Numbers USA 2019-21 rankings:

Conclusions

  • Propensity to betray Country is a good guide to propensity to betray colleagues and Party.
  • Senators command higher prices. Toomey and Scott being worse than their House colleagues parallels the Rob Portman/Ohio case.
  • The GOP Minority recruitment program is toxic. Gimenez and Kim were born overseas, and Diaz-Bialert and Salazar, coming from Latino south Florida, might as well have been. Malliotakis is the daughter of Greek immigrants and Chris Jacobs appears to be Jewish.
  • Once again, the stunning agglomeration of the Democrats around F- is daunting. This was not the case when I began looking at the Numbers USA rankings in the early 2000s. They really have become the Anti-America Party
