‘It was going so well, Liz’: The left turns on RINO Liz Cheney for pro-life Roe v. Wade tweet

Reviled by Republicans for her involvement in the House hearings on  Jan. 6, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is learning the hard way that trying to play on both sides of the political fence never works after she tweeted her approval of the Supreme Court’s explosive decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, sparking a chorus of condemnation from the Democrats she’d thought she’d won over with her anti-Trump rhetoric.

“I have always been strongly pro-life,” Cheney tweeted after the SCOTUS ruling was made official. “Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court returns power to the states and the people of the states to address the issue of abortion under state law.”

 

It wasn’t exactly a jubilant celebration of the sanctity of life or an “in-your-face” condemnation of abortion.

It was a simple expression of her personal belief and an acknowledgment of states’ — and by extension, voters’ — rights.

But that was enough for the woman who needs Democratic voters to show up for her in Wyoming’s August primary to learn the painful lesson that, regardless of how willing she is to betray her Republican base, she is not now, nor will she ever be, one of them.

“Oh God,” replied Hollywood director Michael Seitzman. “It was going so well, Liz.”

 

What Cheney failed to realize is that the woke crowd she’s been courting won’t tolerate a dissenting opinion. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done for them in the past, like Janet Jackson, they will always demand to know “what have you done for me lately?”

And if they don’t like your answer, they’ll withdraw their support faster than you can say “Republican In Name Only.”

Take, for example, the ultra-liberal and equally disliked Rosie O’Donnell, who shook her virtual head and stated, “just when i started to admire u…”

And, as astonishing as it may be, Rosie’s tweet was one of the nicer repudiations.

Most others were tantamount to a sharp shove off a political pedestal.

“Some Democrats were literally saying only days ago they would support Liz Cheney for President,” wrote author Don Winslow. “How far we have fallen. How transactional the world has become.”

“Liz Cheney wants you to carry your rapists child to term,” he wrote in a separate tweet. “Liz Cheney does not care if you were raped by a family member. You will deliver that child. Your body is not yours. It belongs to the Republican party.”

“See your ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ hero below,” he challenged followers.

“Let Liz Cheney’s comments on Roe serve as a reminder that internalized misogyny is both real & powerful, and that no one should get over-excited about her willingness to participate in the Jan 6 Committee,” stated social justice warrior Emily L. Hauser. “One moral act does not a moral person make.”

What Cheney may have realized too late to save her crumbling career is that, in the eyes of the left, she may have been useful, but she will always be a “Cheney,” and that will always make her disposable to them.

“She was never going to be anyone other than who she is…” tweeted SNOW PAC founder Shannon Freshour, “temporary ally in one war.”
