With the Democrat establishment meddling in GOP primaries to boost perceived weaker Ultra-MAGA general-election candidates, some liberals seem to be cautioning about being careful what you wish for.
One pro-impeachment Republican has taken the criticism a step further. “I’m sick and tired of hearing the sanctimonious bullsh–t about the Democrats being the pro-democracy party,” U.S. Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan declared.
Meijer, who was quoted by Politico, voted for Trump impeachment 2.0, and is seeking reelection in a Michigan constituency that redistricting has made more Democrat friendly.
He is facing Trump-endorsed John Gibbs in the August 2 GOP primary. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reportedly spent about $500,000 to air pro-Gibbs ads.

“While the ads seem critical, they’re supposed to act as a dog whistle for pro-Trump Republican voters, raising Gibbs’ profile against the incumbent, Meijer,” the Daily Mail claimed.
Fellow RINO Adam Kinzinger, who is soon to be an ex-member of Congress from Illinois, described the Democrats’ practice of spending cash on so-called election deniers around the country as “disgusting.”
“While I think a certain number of Democrats truly understand that democracy is threatened, don’t come to me after having spent money supporting an election denier in a primary, and then come to me and say, where are all the good Republicans?”
Democrats and their corporate media allies, and an irrelevant cohort of Never Trumpers, continually spew the talking point that they are protecting or saving democracy while at the same time pushing authoritarianism and censorship.
Deviously funding those they consider unelectable or easier-to-beat opposition candidates may be another form of projection.
Despite their history of aggressively challenging election outcomes, moreover, Democrats now argue that raising questions about the 2020 result is unpatriotic or worse.

Liberal Politico highlighted the irony of the Dems’ attempt at election rigging that could backfire on them in a reference to, as one example, the Meijer-Gibbs contest.
“A growing number of House Democrats are seething at their own campaign arm for meddling in a GOP primary to promote a pro-Trump election conspiracy theorist — after months of warning that such candidates were a threat to democracy.”
Among them, U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), a member of the partisan J6 committee who is not seeking reelection to her Orlando-area seat, said that “No race is worth compromising your values in that way.”
“Democrats, like Murphy, fear the strategy could easily backfire, if a candidate like Gibbs were to win the general election amid a GOP wave — and the party also risks undercutting its own core message about the dangers of MAGA Republicans taking power. It could be harder for Democrats to claim that certain GOP candidates are an existential threat to the country if they are also using party money to push them closer to winning office,” Politico added.
Another retiring Democrat, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice of New York lamented that “Dirty games like this are part and parcel of political campaigns. But when you talk about putting money behind candidates who want to come to Washington and destroy our democracy…it’s not a political, dirty trick anymore, it’s unconscionable.”
“The broader strategy itself isn’t new: Democratic-aligned groups have spent tens of millions of dollars this year meddling in GOP primaries to promote more extreme candidates and improve their own general-election odds,” Politico explained about the initiative that U.S Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.) deemed “very dangerous.”
The Republican Party is apparently optimistic that Gibbs, if he wins the primary which seems likely at this point, can hold the seat in November.
“A reporter tried to ask White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Democrats spending money on MAGA candidates Tuesday, pointing out President Joe Biden had said Monday that ‘you can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy,’ but she wouldn’t speak directly to the question,” the Daily Mail noted.
“Democrats who support the DCCC’s meddling argue it’s simply one of several tactics that the party is using to protect a razor-thin House margin in a midterm that looks desperate for their party,” Politico contended about the gaslighting gamble.
