RELEASE: A Few Resolutions the NH GOP Isn't Considering, But Should
This weekend, the New Hampshire Republican Party met behind closed doors in an unsuccessful attempt to revise its party platform - thanks to "much infighting" among party members.
Since the NHGOP situation is a bit of a hot mess, we are more than happy to help out by proposing a series of resolutions that, in light of recent events, the NH GOP might consider to help them rebuild their party to actually reflect the values of Granite Staters.
1. Demand that any Republican elected official support the existence of New Hampshire. Following the results of the 2020 election, the Seditious Six - Rep. Jose Cambrils (R-Loudon), Rep-Elect. Anne Copp (R-Derry), Rep. Raymond Howard, Jr (R-Alton), Rep. Dave Testerman (R-Franklin), Rep. Mike Sylvia (R-Belmont), and Rep. Scott Wallace (R-Danville) - declared that the 2020 New Hampshire election was fraudulent and filed a petition with the House Clerk advocating for “termination of the state.” The House GOP voted to allow these members to continue serving, despite the fact that sedition is a crime in New Hampshire.
2. Denounce anti-Semitism, racism. and sexism with its party’s ranks. Recently, Rep. Dawn Johnson posted anti-Semitic memes on social media, and Rep. James Spillane called for the looting and burning of supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, while Rep. Baldasaro has spent his career trafficking in racist and sexist diatribes. But no matter what members of their caucus say or do, the NH GOP and its leaders including Sununu have remained silent - and complicit.
3. Condemn party members who participate in violent illegal riots. New Hampshire Republican Party activists including Troy Police Chief David Ellis recently participated in a violent illegal insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that put members of Congress, their staff, and others at risk. Participants in the mob are currently being investigated by the Justice Department and the FBI, but the NH GOP continues to support and encourage their illegal and threatening actions.
4. Reverse the NH GOP's antiquated position on abortion. 48 years after the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade established privacy rights for women seeking a safe and legal medical procedure, the NH GOP still maintains in its platform that abortion should be banned even when medically necessary, and that politicians - instead of women and their doctors - should be making personal medical decisions. 5. Reverse the NH GOP's antiquated anti-equal marriage position. The NH GOP platform currently states that marriage is a “legal and sacred union between one man and one woman.” This is completely out of touch with current law and reality - and has been for decades.
