‘Don’t ever preach to me again!’: Ex-GOP chair tells evangelicals who still support Trump to ‘shut the hell up!’


Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele blasted Family Research Council president Tony Perkins for giving President Donald Trump a “mulligan” on paying hush money to former adult film star.

-snip-

“I have very simple admonition: just shut the hell up and don’t preach to me about anything ever again,” Steele suggested.

“After telling me who to love, what to believe, what to do and what not to do and now you sit back and the prostitutes don’t matter, the grabbing the you-know-what doesn’t matter, the outright behavior and lies don’t matter, just shut up!” Steele blasted.

“They have no voice of authority anymore for me,” Steele concluded.

Well, he told them off over Roy Moore also, but I'm mostly guessing he sees a path to a resuscitated career that direction. Good sign if so.

Don't preach at me for 30 years and then back Roy Moore. Women will not forget this. More women are getting organized and running for office.

95. True

Steele was born in '58 and was raised in South Carolina
There was opposition in many places around the country, including South Carolina which is the home to Bob Jones University, which had a school policy that did not allow for Interracial dating of any kind.
That is what I am referencing when I wrote that. I do not know if he ever had a girlfriend that wasn't African-American, or if he had interests in a girl that wasn't.
But, he likely heard it many, many times. "Keep to your own kind."
I'm not gay, but I grew up in a time (I was born in 64) where people were quick to say that was wrong -- and they said it to everybody, not just gay people.

25. I used to wonder if Michael Steele resented being the GOP's Black Friend.

Forget about Ben Carson - he doesn't know if he's been punched, reamed or bored. MS seemed to have at least some self-awareness, and he always struck me as much more of an Olde Tyme Republican who actually believed in "true" conservative values than the pack of rabid wolverines he "led". The kind of opposition with whom you could at least have civil discourse.

Perhaps that impression wasn't so far off as it sometimes appeared.

he always has known what the GOP was, and what he was to them, and was OK with it, because he found a niche to benefit from personally.

I have felt that way all along with him, going back to when he first came to the national stage as the Lt Gov of Maryland.

The longer they hold out defending and supporting Trump, the more they are trying to cover up.

The ones we're seeing now, (Steele, Schmidt, M. Joe etc) are just the early wave. There will be a torrent soon. Then there will be the really, really guilty ones who hold out till they go to jail.

59. He's made a lot of money supporting the Republican Party.

 

Guess he's reached the end of the line...today's Republican Party doesn't need his services anymore.

62. Good to hear that from Steele

But gawd Tweety is annoying. He couldn't just let the power of that statement, coming from the former GOP chair no less, stand there for a moment. He had to rush in and try and make a "funny joke" "but if you're a baker, you do not have to bake a cake for a gay wedding" What a twit.

85. Yes, that really annoyed me too.

Tweety talks too much and always has to be the center/star on his show.

63. I saw him on CSPAN addressing a group of political interns and he was impressive

That was several weeks ago.

When one youngster asked him about the GOP's moral authority, clearly hoping Steele could tell them how to bolster it and use it, he burst out, "Oh HELL no!" Then he went on a righteous rant saying pretty much what you just quoted here.

Michael Steele has zero fucks left to give that morally bankrupt party.

He is truly small-c conservative. When talking about his political and social philosophy, he gave a bit of his autobiography. Straight out of college he went into Roman Catholic seminary to study for the priesthood (Governor Jerry Brown also studied for the priesthood). He talked about what the vows he took really meant in relationship to other human beings, and it was all about that relationship and compassion toward others. How he ended up a Republican I do not know, but he sure is not one any more.

He and others who have given up on the GOP in the past several years have not only earned my respect, but have taught me something about myself, and that is a recognition that I may judge too quickly and without enough information.

Charlatans and hypocrites - all they care about is money and power (and sex with other people's spouses)

67. About damn time!

Just a bunch of phony Christians that support Drumpf and I've been calling out "friends" even during the repub primaries to name me a single thing that's even remotely Christian about him. Just like the empty suit that he is, there is absolutely nothing. The word friends is in quotation marks because they aren't friends any longer, I don't wish to be associated with a pack of hypocrites.

78. The tealibans have been exposed for the lying hypocrites they always were.

They don't give a shit about God, Jesus or morality, it's all about political power to them. They have done more to destroy religion in this country than anything that's ever happened in my long life. I'm glad my evangalistic mom and dad aren't around to see this, I know my mom would be totally appalled.

86. This is the Evangelicals "Have you no sense of decency?" moment.

In this version, Steele is Joseph Welch and Perkins is Senator Joseph McCarthy. Perkins, of course, is just the face for an entire movement that has officially jumped the shark. Never again should the Xtian Right have any credibility with mainstream America when they speak.

To which I say, "Good riddance!" and "About fucking time!"

It's like having one of the Marsalises or Ramsey Lewis play for a Duck Dynasty wedding.

90. The GOP has always been the party of "it's only bad when Dems do it" so I don't know why he's

suddenly so indignant. Evangelicals have had the GOP's balls in their hands for years. Why suddenly now is he noticing? I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm glad. It just seems like "well, duh."

99. It's fairly simple.

Most high-profile Trump supporters, Christian or otherwise, are not intellectually honest. If they were, we'd see them explaining what's really behind all this cynical piety: that they want a white man in the White House, that they want conservative Christian values to be codified into law, that they want to hang onto their cash, and that everybody else can go to hell. Perhaps literally.

Go Fuck yourself sideways with a First Edition hard cover copy of Atlas Shrugged you worthless piece of amphibian shit!!!

You built this shitshow. Your deathbed conversion won't save you when the blue 🌊 crashes down on you and your fucking corrupt party.

If you're lucky, we may let you escape jail time
