‘Republican civil war is canceled’: Rick Scott calls for unity in blistering memo

Powered by Topple

Florida Senator and Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee Rick Scott announced in a widely circulated and explosive memo released on Tuesday that the “The Republican Civil War is now canceled.”

The two-page letter allegedly addresses Republican voters, activists, leaders, and donors. Scott is feverishly working to win back the Senate for the GOP in 2022 and he is calling for party unity in the wake of former President Trump leaving office.

“The long-running impeachment show is now over,” Scott wrote. “This political theater should have been held at the other end of Washington in the Kennedy Center instead of the US Capitol. It was an unserious circus. It’s over. Now it’s time to look ahead.”

He also states that instead of continuing to debate impeachment now that Trump has been acquitted, Republicans need to come to terms with the success that Democrats are experiencing in regards to their control of Congress and the White House.

“The Democrats control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. In other words, they control Washington,” Scott bluntly stated. “Here is what they have done and are in the process of doing so far: cutting border security, granting amnesty to illegals, canceling the Keystone pipeline destroying thousands of jobs, allowing males to compete in women’s sports, banning fracking on federal lands making us less energy independent and using tax dollars to pay for abortion in foreign countries.”

“At the very same time these far-left radicals are trying to remake America in their image, and lead us into a disastrous, dystopian, socialist future, we have a parade of pundits and even Republican voices suggesting we should have a GOP civil war. NO,” Scott said.

Scott went on to posit that it “does not need to be true, should not be true, and will not be true. Those fanning these flames, in both the media and our own ranks, desire a GOP civil war.”

“No, we don’t have time for that: The hour is late, the Democrats are planning to destroy our freedoms, and the threat in front of us is very real,” he proclaimed.

“Perhaps in more genteel times, a bunch of infighting and arguing wouldn’t do much damage. Truthfully, I enjoy bantering back and forth, and I have no interest in trying to quell intraparty policy dialogue and debates,” Scott wrote. “But now is not the time for division and here’s why: For the first time in any of our lives, socialism has become the unabashed, governing policy of the Democrat Party,” he boldly admonished.

Scott is all for debate when the time is right. But he’s saying this is a wake-up call for Republicans. “This is real life folks. If they can cancel the President of the United States, they will have no problem canceling you and me. Today’s Democrats do not want to simply “cancel” us, they want to destroy anyone who disagrees with them.”

“To beat this threat — the threat of socialism, crushing debt, loss of freedom — we must focus on addition, not subtraction; on looking forward, not backward,” Scott solemnly declared. “Hopefully, at some point in the future, we will have beaten this threat back and find ourselves strong enough to afford self-indulgent divisions. But that day is not today.”

“Yes, we are up against powerful elites headquartered in Washington and on the coasts, and they endlessly try to lecture, bully, and intimidate us. But we can beat them,” he said.

“President Trump brought many working-class voters our way, and Hispanic voters are increasingly inclined to vote Republican. Meanwhile, the Democrats have become the party of the elites, the naïve, and the socialist left, giving us tremendous opportunity to recapture our historic strength in America’s suburbs,” he wrote.

“Some of you voted for President Trump enthusiastically, some with reservations, and some with great reluctance,” he added. “It doesn’t matter. We got 74 million votes, and we can easily add to our numbers if we work together.”

The letter reportedly echoes Scott’s planned address to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday. Former President Trump will also make his first formal public appearance at the gathering as well.
