Neville Chamberlain and the Cowards of the GOP
It’s hard to read The Last Lion or watch The Darkest Hour without being disgusted with Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister who preceded Churchill. That’s because Chamberlain refused to act courageously when courage was what was needed most.
The Soviets were a growing danger in the East, the goose-stepping Nazis were biting off larger and larger chunks of Europe, and Britain was unprepared for war. All Chamberlain had to do was grow a bit of a spine and stand up to the Germans. Had he done so, that horrific war might have been averted and tens of millions of lives could have been saved.
But, of course, he didn’t. Instead, that fool Neville backed down time and time again. He let Hitler get away with outrageous foreign policy action after outrageous foreign policy action. Like Obama refusing to enforce his red line in Syria, stand up to the Russian seizure of Crimea, or stand up to Chinese aggression in the South China Sea, Britain’s cowardly PM backed down every time that he needed to stand up to Herr Hitler. The most famous example of his sickening cowardice is the Munich Conference, where he signed away the fate of Czechoslovakia, which was willing to fight and could have put up stiff resistance to the Wehrmacht, in exchange for an obviously false promise of peace.
Then, Germany, emboldened by his cowardly behavior, invaded Poland and World War II began. All Chamberlain had to do was stand up for his nation’s interests at any point before then and disaster could have been averted. But he was a coward that preferred humiliating but temporarily safe meekness to roaring like a lion and threatening to fight if necessary.
The GOP is faced with a similar situation today. Yes, no tanks are rolling across the plains of Kansas nor are JU-88s bombing Republican strongholds. But AOC is calling for a list of Trump supporters and a liberal TV-show host wants to use drone strikes to attack Trump supporters. Biden and the woke mob are recklessly chasing after an anti-freedom agenda and ripping apart the American economy.

And what are some of the cowardly GOP senators and congressmen doing? Fighting back against those radical leftists and standing up for conservatism?
Nope. Instead of doing that, they were voting to impeach Trump, a terrific president who did nothing wrong. To them, it doesn’t matter that his administration’s policies were more conservative than those of the Reagan Administration. Nor does it matter that the left’s stormtroopers burned America for months this summer or that most everything their Democrat colleagues say about Trump is and was a lie.
No, those cowards in our ranks don’t care about the truth, standing up for a good man and great president, or defending conservatives from the hysteric lunatics in thw woke mob. For the Chamberlains of the GOP, all that matters is playing nice so they get invited to Georgetown cocktail parties. They’re trying to appease the radical left in an attempt to save their own skins.
You see, if they actually fought for what they were elected to fight for, Republican politicians would be persona non grata in D.C., a leftist swamp. They wouldn’t get invited to the fun parties, would be spurned by the orchidaceous denizens of the nation’s capital, and might not even get cut in on the corrupt deals members of Congress traffic in! The horror.
So, GOP representatives and senators are presented with a tough, for them, choice. Do they fight for conservatism or only speak lip service to Republican ideas while really chasing pleasure and acclaim?
Since the Tea Party, they’ve gotten better about actually fighting for conservatism. But we still have a few cowards in the ranks, men and women who, like Chamberlain, prefer sacrificing anything for temporary peace than doing whatever is necessary to fight for liberty.
Who are those people? The ones who voted to impeach Trump. They are:
- Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming
- Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
- Rep. Jamie Herrera-Beutler of Washington
- Rep. John Katko of New York
- Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
- Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan
- Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington
- Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina
- Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan
- Rep. David Valadao of California
- Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina
- Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
- Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
- Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
- Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah
- Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska
- Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
Those are the RINOs who betrayed their party. They stabbed Trump in the back and need to be held accountable, via censures and primaries, for doing so. They might claim they are merely remaining true to their ideals, but, even if that were the case (which it’s not, they just wanted to be treated with kid gloves by the media), it would be ridiculous. They weren’t elected to impeach Trump if he said something mean; they were elected to fight for conservative values. How is going along with a partisan, absurd impeachment doing that? Even if Trump did something wrong, which he didn’t, what political reason is there to attack him? Doing so weakens the conservative movement, which is unacceptable.
For far too long, Republicans have played into the hands of the Democrats. We play by a strict moral code and set of rules while they do whatever they please. We’re acting like monks while they’re acting like Machiavelli. Thanks to the RINOs, we’re playing for a negotiated peace, trying to appease our enemies on the far left, while those radical leftists are shooting for an all-out victory.
That state of affairs can’t be allowed to continue any longer. We need real conservatives to do whatever is necessary to help us win, not a bunch of weakling, Romney and Lincoln Project-like RINOs that play the Democrats’ game time and time again.

Hitler wasn’t dealing with Chamberlain in good faith and the Democrats who are praising Romney and the other cowards now aren’t dealing with them in good faith. No, the Dems are just taking advantage of the nonexistent spines of those fools and using their primal need for acclaim as leverage.
Similarly, there’s McConnell. Although he didn’t vote against Trump, he did deliver a blistering speech after the vote. Here’s what The Federalist had to say about it and McConnell, another one of the Neville Chamberlains of the GOP:
“McConnell had hoped to rid himself and his conference of the conservative populist nationalism the former president had championed and go back to the way things were. He wants a return to promising to tackle illegal immigration before winking at corporate America that nothing will change. He wants to raise money on fighting the abortion of our infants while comfortably lifting nary a finger. He wants to shrug and change the subject when asked about men dominating women’s sports and using women’s bathrooms. He wants fewer taxes and more wars. Hell, he wants someone to blame for the Republican losses in the Georgia special election, and with them the loss of his seat at the head of the Senate.”
Trump was the most conservative president in history. Even if his personal beliefs might not have been, the policies that came out of his administration were. We stayed out of new wars, cut taxes, ripped away the red tape of regulation, and pushed back against the woke mob, among other things. But then the election was stolen from Trump, in no small part because of RINOs and Chamberlains like Brian Kemp that wouldn’t clean up the voter rolls.
They’re responsible for the horrible situation we now find ourselves in. The Lincoln Project clowns and grifters, the cowardly Kemps and Romney’s, and the idiotic Cheney’s did this to us. They’re the Chamberlains of the GOP, the cowards that are unwilling to stand up and face the fire of the left. We need to hold them accountable for their cowardice by using primaries, recalls, and anything else in our toolkit to ensure that they can betray us no longer. We must fight the culture war right now. Don’t let cowards like Romney give away the Sudetenland. Republicans need Churchills, not Chamberlains.
