Lockwood condemns Marjorie Taylor Greene’s cancel culture antics
DENVER, Colo.—Jonathan Lockwood was highlighted this week by Newsweek as the only candidate in the race to lead the Colorado Republican Party who accepts the election results. Friday, Lockwood called Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s recent comments on Cheney and other Republicans who refuse to conform to MAGA doctrine as “dangerous and divisive.”
“We must rise above conformity and allow for diversity of thought within the Republican Party,” said Lockwood. “The people screaming the loudest about cancel culture are invalidating everyone who doesn’t submit to their radical positions. That is flat-out wrong and doesn’t represent conservative values or principles.”
Greene said that “the [Republican] party is his. It doesn’t belong to anybody else,” a day after she was stripped of her committee seats in the House.
Not everyone in key party positions agrees with Greene. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., wrote a letter describing the situation at hand for Republicans.
“Truthfully, I enjoy bantering back and forth, and I have no interest in trying to quell intra-party policy dialogue and debates,” Scott wrote. “But now is not the time for division and here’s why: For the first time in any of our lives, socialism has become the unabashed, governing policy of the Democrat Party.”
