Former Redstate Founder and Talk Show Host Erick Erickson is someone trying a little too hard to run with the mantle of grassroots activism. Him and his group known nothing about grassroots activism. You won’t see Erickson in little small towns across America or talking to minorities in the neighborhood, or traveling to Ferguson, Missouri to discuss how great conservativism is.
Erickson and his group is trying to hijack name grassroots conservatism and cause major problems at the GOP convention to be held in Cleveland Ohio in July.
I am pissed off that they have decided to put on a clown face to try to fool real grassroots conservatives. They are establishment and they do not have the will of the people in their sights. They want to nominate an establishment guy over voters and we can’t let that happen.
From The Resurgent:
We are a group of grassroots conservative activists from all over the country and from various backgrounds, including supporters of many of the other campaigns. We are committed to ensuring a real conservative candidate is elected. We believe that neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump, a Hillary Clinton donor, is that person.
We believe that the issue of Donald Trump is greater than an issue of party. It is an issue of morals and character that all Americans, not just those of us in the conservative movement, must confront.
We call for a unity ticket that unites the Republican Party. If that unity ticket is unable to get 1,237 delegates prior to the convention, we recognize that it took Abraham Lincoln three ballots at the Republican convention in 1860 to become the party’s nominee and if it is good enough for Lincoln, that process should be good enough for all the candidates without threats of riots.
We encourage all former Republican candidates not currently supporting Trump to unite against him and encourage all candidates to hold their delegates on the first ballot.
Lastly, we intend to keep our options open as to other avenues to oppose Donald Trump. Our multiple decades of work in the conservative movement for free markets, limited government, national defense, religious liberty, life, and marriage are about ideas, not necessarily parties.
This was “grassroots conservative activist” Erickson pushing establishment Gov Jeb Bush at his RedState conference last August. Take a listen:
Don’t trust these guys, don’t fall this trap. This is nothing but money to them and they are looking to make tons of it. They are trying to pull a fast one over on real grassroots conservatives that are out there every day and not privy to a lot of this establishment back room dealings.
