> And I think it's not a bad idea for a disabled person to consider that and be ready for potential threats A knife is a horrible, HORRIBLE, weapon for self defense unless you are one of the very few people trained to use one for that purpose. Even the knife fanatics over at r/knives and r/edc will tell you that. And even then, there are better options. If he actually cared about self defense he would have pepper spray and/or a taser, as local laws allow. He had a knife because he's a little boy who likes to play pretend. That's all there is to it. Edit: And I don't mean to suggest that all people who carry knives are little boys playing pretend. Knives are great, useful tools. They're just absolute shit for self defense.


VeryVito

It’s not like he even *needs* a knife. The guy can punch a tree like nobody else I’ve seen.


RockItGuyDC

That was such a cringey video. I don't want to make too much fun, because I don't know how his disability may affect his upper body and ability to throw punches, but those were some pretty pathetic punches to say the least. Not to mention, just...why?


VeryVito

Nothing about his physical disability made him post that video to the internet.


Sentazar

Your ability to throw punches starts with your lower body


j_a_a_mesbaxter

It’s an even worse idea for someone with such restricted mobility. It’s all performance.


THD_PRL

Wow, TIL I am the bigot against blonde haired, blue-eyed whities who align with the Republican party. And I'm a white guy. Thank you for putting things more into perspective for me. Anyone suffering from a handicap should have the ability to defend themselves. But this guy is still a turd for bring it to a school board meeting.


j_a_a_mesbaxter

He’s so clearly desperate to be a tough guy but given his disability, knows that’s a tough sell to his base. So he makes up for it by being a loudmouth. Also, I think we all remember the whining from men on the right about their inability to attract women on dating apps. I doubt that’s changed.

He's in a wheelchair and likes Hitler enough to visit his house and referred to him as the fuhrer.

Right wing is full of snowflakes who think they're the unique/"good one" of their otherwise persecuted bunch. And Fox News is more than happy to pay these people to attack their own.


RaifRedacted

Hitler thought himself unique and different, as well. Black hair. Allegedly Jewish, himself (he wrote Jesus and himself as exceptions to his jewishness law out of fear, due to a picture showing a grave stone with Hebrew letters on it that could have been his grandfather).


navikredstar

He probably didn't have Jewish ancestry, as from what I recall reading about his grandmother, she lived in an area of Austria that did not permit Jewish residents. There's definitely a whole lot of weirdness surrounding his father's birth, but the likelihood of it being that he had a secret Jewish grandfather is pretty slim given how insanely anti-Semitic that region of Austria was at the time.

Just a fun fact about how in groups work, Cawthorn would have lived: Goebbels for example had a deformed right foot. Himmler had psychosomatic illness. Trump is a pants-shitting syphilitic drug addict as was Hitler in all likelyhood. The purges were for the ruled. Not the rulers.

brdwatchr

Cawthorn has apparently been reading Nazi literature. The Nazi's had special camps for their ideal women and impregnated them to have perfect caucasian children.. imagine that. Well you can be sure that if that is the way the republicans are going, women's bodies will be baby machines. They have taken a first step by removing abortion rights, and then will they remove sales of IUD'S and the pill, and anything that will protect you from pregnancy? They are so terrified of minorities being in the majority, that you will be forced to have children whether or how many you want. Then do they plan a project to sterilize people of color? How far will these fascist monsters take this. I really want people to be thinking about Cawthorn's statement, because it imparts very evil intent.


frostfall010

Right wing media hammers into their viewers/listeners that even if what the right did/said/enacted is kind of maybe wrong, here's an example of a democrat being a hypocrite and doing something 100x worse. It's why what he's saying likely resonates with a lot of republicans.


kuwabara_has_a_sword

No, but they'll immediately ruin your career and make death threats against your family if you question Trump in any capacity.


ArbysKnights

It's surreal to see them doing anything they want without repercussions. It's unbelievable to watch America dying before our very eyes.


Disconnorable

I mean, who’s going to hold them accountable? The right won’t hold their own accountable, the Liberals are too wet to do anything or secretly agree with the right, and the left have no power.


Mister_Know_Nothing

We really need to elect fewer douches to elected offices. Each member of the gop douche committee is trying too hard to be the biggest douche (or douchette). It's just so overplayed now.


hollimer

I assumed we reached peak douche years ago, but then we got people like Cawthorn and Boebert in 2020. The breadth of the GQP is vast, and it's depth of douchiness seemingly infinite.

Okay I admit I was expecting something overdone and deliberately ostentatious like Trump's signature. I did not anticipate the 4th grade cursive. That's on me, I guess.

Straycat43

I don’t feel bad about my signature now. Did that accident incapacitate his hands too?


GRAPES0DA

Look, I can't stand this racist, Hitler loving, douche nozzle, but he is a paraplegic and his horrible signature may be related to his disability. There are plenty of other things we can tear him apart for without being ableist.


GummiBear85

I don't think it's just the cursive; it's also the fact that he misspelled his own name....


gimme20regular_cash

There are videos of him punching a dead rotten tree like a tough guy and shooting off guns and going hunting. Given that and his disability, I purposely chose not to mention how he spelled his name wrong or the distinct style of his handwriting.


StopSwitchingThumbs

It isn’t, he can field strip and handle fire arms, so if this was directly related to his injury he wouldn’t be able to handle those without issue. I’ve also see a video of him signing some crap piece of legislation and his grip was normal and nothing like the couple of friends I have who have compromised dexterity due to spinal injuries.


rawbdor

He punches trees pretty well... but it's still possible he needs to focus a bit harder at the finer movements of writing.


Cultural_Ad_1693

The dude carries a gun with him. It's obvious his disability doesn't mess with his hands since he thinks he is perfectly physically capable to carry and fire a gun if required. So yea, let's continue hating on him for his 3rd grade cursive and horrible spelling.

He is a sexual predator. He is dumb (at a literal level). He is shameless. He is racist. He is the future of the GQP.

Ok_Opportunity_3012

Is this the replacement theory that they have been carrying on about?


Kazexmoug

They've already been replaced, they just don't want to accept it. And all this could have been avoided if they just decided to see Black people and Women as allies instead of competion. But skin privilege and cheap narratives were more palatable, than accepting that the ownership and business class view their loyalty with contempt. It started when they decided to cripple themselves economically in order to preserve the social status of being 'useful' to business owners. Loyalty never means shit because business owners found what they wanted abroad ; cheaper exploitation of humans. Now they have to sit with the fact that trusting a person based on "what you think you are not" is never going to work out in your favour. Others have known this for decades and why they aren't worried about change, because for the first time, the "hated other" is finally expressing the self-determination and they fear reciprocity for past selfishness. Now the same violence they were indifferent towards is now turned upon themselevs as it always inevitably ends. Like or not, people never maintain their social positions without exploitation, and the means to do so are now concentrated in the very people they hoped to reward them. Now they face the consequences of their forbears' cowardice, narcisscism,bigotry and delusion. Edit:Spelling and Grammar


yes______hornberger

\>just decided to see Black people and Women as allies instead of competition It's always really alarming to me to realize how many men are genuinely angry at women for working for pay, and truly believe that the economy would function perfectly if only 1/2 the population was eligible for paid work (with the other half forced to choose between starvation and domestic slavery). Like some yahoo in the jobs sub right now is trying to tell me that corporations *invented* feminism so that they could flood the market with cheap labor to drive down wages. And he's not even the first, I've been hearing that shit since AP econ class.

Bingo. You can tell by him calling me "hysterical" and insisting I'm "having a meltdown" simply for disagreeing.


Kazexmoug

Right? Like, people have multiple options now and want better than the past. And a major part of that expansion of options is people choosing whether or not to have relationships at all.


yes______hornberger

Yes, which gets to your point about those outdated social positions being predicated on exploitation. Men angry that they are no longer entitled to a wife so financially/socially dependent she can't leave regardless of financial/physical abuse. A woman with her own money is much harder to exploit and dominate, and the feeling of dominance is the real end goal, just as with racism. Although at least it's no longer socially acceptable to talk about wanting to exclude people from paid work based on race "for the good of the economy". Progress!

This is exactly what rural North Carolina is. Generations of families living on government subsidies scared as fuck of anything new or not church approved. The cities are the exceptions. And even the more expensive/bougie city of Chapel Hill is home to huge numbers of hate groups with proud boys and skinheads making up the bulk. If you get too far away from a college, you find out real fast this state bleeds red.

NC has been gerrymandered to all hell for the last 10 years and it's currently being gerrymandered again (for the next 10 years) so that the influence of urban areas is diluted into the very conservative rural areas.

Maybe if Cawthorn was actually concerned with lowering testosterone rates in men he would meet with scientists, endocrinologists, biochemists, address address potential environmental causes like; pesticides, phthalates, microplastic contamination in all of our food and oceans and bodies, PFAS contamination. What's shocking is he has done none of that. Maybe its about right wing extremism and fascism and not about our health. I mean, addressing environmental contaminants would mean holding donors to account.


WestCoastBestCoast01

White women play an integral but often forgotten role in maintaining white supremacy. I say this as a white woman. Forgotten because they don't use violence the way white men do, but white supremacist women are in lock step enforcing the racial hierarchy. It's no secret why more white women voted for Trump in 2020 than they did in 2016, these women will ALWAYS choose whiteness even over economic equality. There are MANY white women out there who will overlook or outright accept their place as second on the totem pole as long as they can convince themselves they're at least above POC.

He couldn't even hack it in college long enough to pledge.


Blazer9001

I thought it had more to do with killing his friends in the car crash that paralyzed him?


Gonkar

He failed out of a hyper-conservative Christian "college" that is basically a diploma mill for right-wing nutjobs. Also, in the one semester that he did spend there he was so notorious for sexually assaulting female students that the fucking RAs and staff were actively warning women to never be alone with him, never get in his car, etc. That was apparently before the car accident that he lied about, and sometime around the time that he lied about joining the Navy or something along those lines... it's hard to keep track because this fucking Nazi lies about literally fucking everything. (For example: He claimed he was training for the Special Olympics at one point... which was quickly proven to be a lie. He still claims this, regardless.) Oh and let's not forget that he was one of the traitors named in Rolling Stone's article about fascists helping the insurrection.


performace-gardening

Was he driving in that accident?


Blazer9001

Okay, didn’t get it totally right. I don’t think anyone died BUT he absolutely threw his friend with him in the crash under the bus by claiming he was left for dead, when in fact the friend pulled him out. Oh and he already got rejected from the Naval Academy because of his grades before the crash even happened. [Cawthorn said a close friend had crashed the car in which he was a passenger and fled the scene, leaving him to die “in a fiery tomb.” Cawthorn was “declared dead,” he said in the 2017 speech at Patrick Henry College. He said he told doctors that he expected to recover and that he would “be at the Naval Academy by Christmas.” Key parts of Cawthorn’s talk, however, were not true. The friend, Bradley Ledford, who has not previously spoken publicly about the chapel speech, said in an interview that Cawthorn’s account was false and that he pulled Cawthorn from the wreckage. An accident report obtained by The Washington Post said Cawthorn was “incapacitated,” not that he was declared dead. Cawthorn himself said in a lawsuit deposition, first reported by the news outlet AVL Watchdog, that he had been rejected by the Naval Academy before the crash. Shortly after the speech, Cawthorn dropped out of the college after a single semester of mostly D’s, he said in the deposition, which was taken as part of a court case regarding insurance. Later, more than 150 former students signed a letter accusing him of being a sexual predator, which Cawthorn has denied. Yet four years after Cawthorn spoke at the chapel, the portrait he sketched of his life provided the framework for his election in November as the youngest member of the U.S. House at the minimum age of 25 years old. A campaign video ad repeated his false claim that the car wreck had derailed his plans to attend the Naval Academy.](https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/02/27/making-madison-cawthorn-how-falsehoods-helped-propel-career-new-pro-trump-star-far-right/?arc404=true)

When does the lebensborn program start?


FlintBlue

For the uninitiated, *lebensborn*, which Cawthorn's comments closely resemble, was one of Nazism's fundamental pillars... "Lebensborn e.V. (literally: "Fount of Life") was an SS-initiated, state-supported, registered association in Nazi Germany with the goal of raising the birth rate of Aryan children of people classified as 'racially pure' and 'healthy' based on Nazi racial hygiene and health ideology. Lebensborn provided welfare to its mostly unmarried mothers, encouraged anonymous births by unmarried women at their maternity homes, and mediated adoption of these children by likewise 'racially pure' and 'healthy' parents, particularly SS members and their families. The Cross of Honour of the German Mother was given to the women who bore the most Aryan children. Abortion was legalised (and, more commonly, endorsed) by the Nazis for disabled and non-Germanic children, but strictly punished otherwise. Initially set up in Germany in 1935, Lebensborn expanded into several occupied European countries with Germanic populations during the Second World War. It included the selection of 'racially worthy' orphans for adoption and care for children born from Aryan women who had been in relationships with SS members. It originally excluded children born from unions between common soldiers and foreign women, because there was no proof of 'racial purity' on both sides. During the war, many children were kidnapped from their parents and judged by Aryan criteria for their suitability to be raised in Lebensborn homes, and fostering by German families." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebensborn

This guy realises that the Nazis would have quite literally “euthanised” him due to his disability, right?


Chasman1965

Well, as a father to two sons, I raised them to be good men, not monsters. I raised them to help those who needed help, and to follow Christ, by serving other people. That is why both of them were highly offended that people could dare to attack this country by attempting a half-assed coup against this country.


glibgloby

How do fascists tie their shoes? In little Nazis.


purplepickles82

Lol how long u been working on that?


saxGirl69

Pretty sure I heard this joke first about 20 years ago in the 5th grade


city_dwellerZ

A pretty transparent message to strive for a modern day Lebensborn. Geez these people are grasping at straws to stem the tide of the changing demographics and political philosophy of the country.


KinkyCoreyBella

Bet he can't stand up and say that to my face. Thank you Donald Trump for making comments like this okay.


jaraket

I swear “Madison Cawthorn” sounds exactly like the sort of fake-sounding, pseudo-macho name Ben Shapiro would make up for a character in one of his stupid novels.

I just wanted to leave this here for maximum exposure. Never forget, this is [Madison Cawthorn’s Signature](https://mobile.twitter.com/patriottakes/status/1351994326172110850)


KeyProcedure4

Did he really misspell his own name


Kazexmoug

Just makes it easier to track assholes


ruler_gurl

The [tree beater](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm4gpYwwaCA) says what?


Dobbyharry

North Carolinians…this is really embarrassing and scary. We can do better than voting people like this guy to represent us.


Frevious

Too bad the entire state is gerrymandered AF, so they keep getting re-elected anyways.


Ironthoramericaman

The idea that being more considerate makes you less masculine is...wild


potatthrowaway

So, basically Hitler youth, huh?


Coomb

De-masculate? Seriously? We already had a word for that and it's emasculate.


RespectTheTree

He's kind of an un-smart penis-woman


Kim_Thomas

Lord “CAW-CAW” is a NORTH CAROLINA treasure trove of unlimited FILTH.


-misanthroptimist

Cawthorn certainly isn't the least intelligent Republican in Congress, but he might very well be the slimiest.


Chasman1965

Nowhere close—MTG, Boebert and Matt Gaetz are worse.


GunShowZero

This guy shoots his mouth off a lot for someone in such close proximity to long staircases…


aSimpleTraveler

Well, I was expecting this to be a misquote and intentionally trying to make a comment worse than it is. But I’ll be damned. This guy really said to raise monsters. What in the world? People like this are truly worrisome. Their place is not in a country’s leadership.


gar_kais

"godly men" "not sheep" Tell me you haven't actually read the Bible without telling me you haven't read the Bible.


cock_babtridge

Yeah, because wasn’t Jesus referred to as a ‘shepherd tending to his flock’?


gar_kais

Yep. The Bible/Jesus very commonly uses sheep as a symbolic representation of people who follow God because they are reliant on a shepherd's guidance and because they are considered to be gentle, social animals. It makes the evangelical rallying cry of "sheeple" all the more ironically amusing. They're basically admitting that everyone else is better at the whole Jesus thing than they are!


Doodledoood

What a horrible excuse for a human being. So much anger and toxicity.


firemage22

He looks like the villian from a 90s teen movie.


sasquatch90

All he's missing is a tiki torch.


crowfarmer

Right, because everyone knows the world needs more psychopaths.


fundiesociologist

Jesus Christ he’s not even trying to pretend anymore 😬


sourpatch411

Yes, as a father to a daughter I would love for her to marry a monster with the belief my daughter will be his house servant. Sarcasm. I teach my son to be kind and respectful and I teach both my kids to be assassins so they are not scared of these monsters.


TUGrad

And if they don't do so willingly, Cawthorne is happy to force them.


averagelyimpressive

This is the true reason they oppose abortion.


Marcfromblink182

Why? A majority of people who get abortions are black or Hispanic. If they wanted more white people, they would be for abortions


averagelyimpressive

I'm sure varies by state. He's from Connecticut, which lists abortions at 40% white.


Inconceivable-2020

They have been for decades in the South and Bible Belt. That's how we got where we are.


Seattle_gldr_rdr

This makes me wonder about the factual demographics of the Q/fascist/white power movement. Every video I see of a rally shows a crowd that's overwhelmingly middle-aged or older. I have the sense that if you want a revolution (especially a violent one) you need the under-30yo cohort. And it doesn't seem like they have it. Does anyone know of a solid analysis of the MAGA demographic breakdown?


ShihPoosRule

This clown is a gift to the Democratic Party much like Greene, Boebert and Gaetz because each has shown themselves to be as dumb as a rock.


chunkmasterflash

The Nazis did this exact same thing. Even gave out medals.


Galliagamer

His mom could give a crapton of advice.


BitsInTheBlood

Sounds like more Dylan Roofs on the way rather than John Waynes.


a-really-cool-potato

Replace the flag background with the nazi flag and maybe a hitler youth advertisement and you’ve summarized this whole article


anotherdaylol

The people of North Carolina truly are in need of higher quality people if this failed abortion is able to get to Congress.


MarsReject

I know it sounds crazy but good god does he look like an evil child of the corn or something. There’s something dystopian about his extreme clean cut look. It’s giving Nazi.


[deleted]

Anybody who was raised around evangelicals going to megachurches and the like knows that this rhetoric has been around for decades.


Kissit777

I’m so glad I didn’t have children.


briocus

It’s nice to see the Patriarchy get some staunch defenders. So often left heroless. /s


Dusty_Bookcase

Sounds like he’s preparing for Lebensraum


HowSR

“They're trying to de-masculate the young men in our country because they don't want people who are going to stand up….” Well Madison, stand up then…? There, I said it 🤷🏼‍♂️


trundling_trundle

A true aspiring theocrat. They’ll pretend they won’t ram authoritarian Christianity down your throat but it’s a lie. They don’t serve the people of the United States. They serve their god. The will of a King will always supersede that of the common man.


voyagerdoge

>Raising monsters for the fascist movement is one of the main goals of today's Republican Party and its "family values." On the bright side, after the US has gone through its own years-long nazi-like darkness, like Europe did, there may be a bright future ahead for those who survived.


infinitum3d

That’s very Christian of him. This guy has the best morals.


Equivalent_Alps_8321

He's repeating Jordan Peterson bullshit. Explains a lot


leefloor

Well, de-masculate isn’t a word proving our county deserves better!!


fucklaurenboebert

As a (white) woman, I’m going to tell my future children about the party of domestic terrorists that never faced any consequences. It’s my duty as a parent to make sure I raise my kids to have integrity and common sense.


Lainarlej

Neo Nazi rhetoric

Can someone roll this worthless fuck in front of a semi?

misternormalman

White men, of course, are famously never involved in the production and maintenance of systemic racism.


The_Umpire_Lestat

Some are, some are not.


fleeingfox

What an ironic statement. If you want to see racism, look in a mirror.


SupaFecta

You know what? I'm going to say it... I don't care that you're in a wheelchair. 🥸


Lucky-Carrot

Has anyone checked if his soles are scuffed ?


willanthony

His argument doesn't have a leg to stand on.


cant_close_vim

What kind of monster is he? A dalek?


eston46

Not a human, this guy.
