Madison Cawthorn Says It’s Time For ‘Dark MAGA’
On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn slammed those who didn’t support him and declared it’s time for “the new right” and “Dark MAGA” to take command two days after losing his Republican primary amid several controversies.
“When the establishment turned their guns on me, when the Uni-party coalesced to defeat an America First member very few people had my back,” the North Carolina congressman wrote on Instagram. He included a list of people who he said “came to my defense when it was not politically profitable.” It included former President Donald Trump, Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz, Steve Bannon and Sen. Rand Paul, among others.
“These are honorable men and women who are the type of friends anyone yearns to have,” he continued. ‘At the beginning of a change the patriot is a rare and hated man.’ These are those rare and hated men/women.”
He continued to say he was “on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal. The time for genteel politics as usual has come to an end. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command.”
He added that there is an “enemy to defeat” in the Democratic Party but first the “cowardly and weak” Republican members would need to go.
“Their days are numbered. We are coming,” Cawthorn wrote. Cawthorn had recently stirred up controversy after saying fellow House Republicans do cocaine and had invited him to orgies.
