In the wake of Democratically controlled House committees pushing to move forward with drafting Articles of Impeachment for President Trump, the GOP is doing some pushing back of their own.
As reported by Fox News, the Republican National Committee has launched a national counter-impeachment campaign called “Stop the Madness,” targeting House Democrats and vowing to cause “chaos” in response to the formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
“Democrats promised to reach across the aisle and work with President Trump and Republicans to serve the American people, but instead are now pushing their hyper-partisan impeachment agenda,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Monday. “Enough is enough; Americans are sick and tired of these witch hunts.”
McDaniel then adding, “We are going to hold Democrats accountable for their ridiculous charade and remind voters that their Democrat representatives turned their backs on them.”
As part of their aggressive impeachment response, the RNC on Monday launched a new website, stopthemadness.gop, with officials saying it will be used to target House Democrats for their “extreme actions.”
“The website is going to be a one-stop-shop for activists and supporters of President Trump across the country to get information on our efforts to cause chaos within the Democratic Party,” RNC spokesman Rick Gorka, who is heading up the campaign, told Fox News in an interview Monday.
Gorka said the website will be the place for supporters to sign petitions, donate and get involved in counter-protests and demonstrations as the party “fights back on this impeachment craziness.”
In addition to the website launch, the RNC has committed to a $2 million ad buy on both TV and digital platforms, including on Facebook, Google, Youtube, Spotify and Pandora. Much of the focus will be in target congressional districts like Atlanta, Ga.; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chicago, Ill.; Charleston, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and more.
Gorka described the effort as a whole as “Kavanaugh on steroids.”
I guess McDaniel is not a fan of Shakespeare’s Julius Ceaser, because about the only thing she did not say in the interview was, “Cry ‘Havoc!,’ and let slip the dogs of war.”
