Hostilities between the Republican far right and its typically muted center burst into the open on Tuesday, highlighting deep divisions that could bedevil the party’s leaders if they capture a narrow majority in the House next year.

Initially prompted by the anti-Muslim comments of Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado, the Republican-on-Republican war of words on Tuesday was remarkably bitter and an indication of a brewing power struggle between an ascendant faction that styles itself after President Donald J. Trump and a quieter one that is pushing back.

First, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia called her freshman colleague Nancy Mace of South Carolina “trash” for condemning Ms. Boebert’s remarks in a television interview.

Ms. Mace then used a series of emojis — a bat, a pile of excrement and a crazy clown — to describe Ms. Greene, then kept up a steady stream of social media attacks, calling her a liar, a grifter and a nut.

Representative Adam Kinzinger, Republican of Illinois, came to Ms. Mace’s defense, calling Ms. Greene “unserious circus barker McSpacelaser” — a reference to a social media post that she once circulated suggesting that wildfires in the West had been started by lasers owned by the Rothschilds, a Jewish banking family.

Mr. Kinzinger added that Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the Republican leader and would-be speaker who has done nothing to discipline rank-and-file members of his conference for bigoted and violent statements, “continues his silent streak that would make a monk blush.”

Then Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, an ally of Ms. Greene’s, took to Twitter to amplify an attack by the right-wing provocateur Jack Posobiec denouncing Ms. Mace as a “scam artist” for promoting coronavirus vaccinations on CNN.

The carnival-like behavior would amount to little more than a sideshow if it did not have real implications for midterm campaigns and, possibly, a fractured Republican majority in 2023. Party leaders again chose to remain mum as their backbenchers brawled, and Democrats took full advantage of the spectacle. (...)



1. Separate the few remaining sane Republicans from the swirling mass of GOP nutjobs.
1a. Prepare first group for archival in a museum.

2. Create a new political party, based on professional-wrestling organizations, for the nutjobs.

3. Establish a primary season for the nutjobs with Steel-Cage Deathmatch competitions.

4. Winner of Deathmatch gets paired with Trump on an ice floe and sent out to sea.

But are there real implications for Republicans?

MTG and other apparently insane members of congress don't have to win on a national level, they have to win their district.  If they've done the math, they know what plays back home.  Defend Trump no matter what, and out-crazy him when possible works in Florida for Greene.  Others are seeing a path away from Trump, but it's (again) in their district. 

The Republicans have gerrymandered the map so much that they will win a lot of seats almost automatically.  We'll see next year if any of these absolute nutjobs lose their seats... I have my doubts.

Disagree. The GOP is certainly no longer a grownup in the room.
But the COVID mask/vaccine debacle is because foreign agents/governments have manipulated our social media in order to convince Americans to not take proper steps against the infection. This allows them to kill nearly a million Americans without firing a shot. They’ve simply created a “movement” using misinformation, and the GOP are more likely to buy into the illogical argument of “freedom.”

Tyranny, Episode 3,415
How Outrage Over Vaccine Mandates Became a Mainstream G.O.P. Stance
Resistance to vaccine mandates, once a fringe position, has entered the Republican mainstream. But the governors fighting President Biden’s Covid-19 vaccine requirements impose mandates of their own.
Like other Republican governors around the country, Tate Reeves of Mississippi reacted angrily to the coronavirus vaccine mandates President Biden imposed on private businesses. Declaring the move “terrifying,” he wrote on Twitter: “This is still America, and we still believe in freedom from tyrants.”

There is a deep inconsistency in that argument. Mississippi has some of the strictest vaccine mandates in the nation, which have not drawn opposition from most of its elected officials. Not only does it require children to be vaccinated against measles, mumps and seven other diseases to attend school, but it goes a step further than most states by barring parents from claiming “religious, philosophical or conscientious” exemptions.

Resistance to vaccine mandates was once a fringe position in both parties, more the realm of misinformed celebrities than mainstream political thought. But the fury over Mr. Biden’s mandates shows how a once-extreme stance has moved to the center of the Republican Party. The governors’ opposition reflects the anger and fear about the vaccine among constituents now central to their base, while ignoring longstanding policy and legal precedent in favor of similar vaccination requirements. (...)
