The Pennington County Republican Party is branding its October 7 Lincoln Day Dinner as “Honoring Our Heroes—Military & First Responders“. Wait a minute—I thought political parties were supposed to focus on raising money, recruiting candidates, and winning elections. Didn’t I read somewhere that parties that quit doing the things that a political party is supposed to do become irrelevant?
You can bet there won’t be much thinking inside or outside the Box during David Clarke’s speech to the Trump faithful in Box Elder. They certainly won’t be thinking about the incongruity of their “Honoring Our Heroes” branding with their featuring a man who told his political followers not to cooperate with law enforcement following the January 6, 2021, insurrection.
