The Man Who Crushed Eric Cantor: Republicans are Scared of Their Shadow on Stopping Obama’s Illegal Amnesty

RINO slaying Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA), who with little money and with grassroots Tea Party support shocked the world, taking down the second most powerful man in the U.S. Congress, then House Majority Leader, RINO Eric Cantor, says that the GOP establishment is afraid of its own shadow when it comes to taking on Obama’s illegal amnesty, and that they’ve been listening to the “crony capitalists,” who will benefit from the low labor costs amnesty would provide, even if it damages American workers.

Appearing on The Howie Carr Show, Rep. Brat, whose historic defeat of Cantor is the first time since 1899 that a primary challenger took down a sitting House Majority Leader, amazingly had never held political office previously.

“Our side, the Republican side, we’re scared of our shadow; we’re especially scared of the 2016 presidential election. The buzz is that we have this demographic issue with African-American and Hispanic voters,” Brat began. “Instead of saying, ‘Hey, these are our brothers and sisters in the Judeo-Christian tradition we share with everyone,’ we backtrack on our First Principles and pay attention to what some of the crony capitalists want, and they want cheap labor, so it’s just a bad brew, and it’s damaging,” Brat told Carr.

Republican leaders, like another top RINO, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, pulled a major bait-and-switch on American voters in 2014, promising to end Obamacare and stop Obama’s illegal amnesty, only to see him and his RINO supporters go soft on both issues, completely cowering to Obama’s unconstitutional royal edicts, despite campaign promises.

Listen to Brat and Carr effectively refute the economic illiteracy of those who spew that illegal immigration, allowing millions of low-skilled workers into the country, will somehow benefit the economy.
