Conservative Senator Ben Sasse DESTROYS Alt-Right Racists on Twitter

Congress is mostly an ugly pool of despotism and corruption.

Okay, “mostly” may be a bit harsh. But Congress has more than its fair share of ugliness.

There are a few bright lights in the House and the Senate though. In the Senate principled conservatives like Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Tim Scott (R-SC), and Ben Sasse (R-NE) are doing the hard work of standing against corruption and big government, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Recently, Sasse stepped out of the political arena and into the cultural one when he took on one of the leaders of the racist, white nationalist alt-right movement.

It started with a tweet from alt-right leader Richard Spencer:

That simple comments sent Sasse into a “tweetstorm,” which he later admitted he was unsure of how to actually create a string of linked comments (or threaded comments):

Sasse continued:

“You don’t get America. You said: ‘You do not have some human right, some abstract thing given to you by God or something like that.’ Actually, that’s exactly what America declares we do have: People are the image-bearers of God, created with dignity and inalienable rights.

Sadly, you don’t understand human dignity. A person’s skin, ancestry, and bank balance have nothing to do with their intrinsic value. This declaration of universal dignity is what America is about. Madison called our Constitution ‘the greatest reflection on human nature.’

You talk about culture but don’t know squat about western heritage — which sees people not as tribes but as individuals of limitless worth. The celebration of universal dignity IS our culture, and it rejects your ‘white culture’ crybaby politics. It rejects all identity politics.

Sometime after moving back into your parents’ basement, you knock-off Nazis fell in love with reheated 20th century will-to-power garbage. Your ‘ideas’ aren’t just hateful, un-American poison — they’re also just so dang boring. The future doesn’t belong to your stupid memes.

Get a real job, Clown. Find an actual neighbor to serve. You’ll be happier. Have a nice day.”

Ouch.

“Get a real job, Clown.” Nice.

Most of America stood to cheer Senator Sasse in the wake of his tweets. Sasse hits the nail on the head when he unmasks Spencer (and the alt-rights) obvious blunder. The alt-right doesn’t understand what America is really all about. We don’t judge people in groups, we look at each person as an individual with inherent worth. Why? Because as a Judeo-Christian nation we believe that every person is created in the image of God and therefore endowed with dignity, worth, and the inalienable rights that we have long championed.

As we fight against the alt-Left, let us not forget that the alt-right is similarly evil and anti-conservative and anti-American.

By the way, if you’d like to know more about Sasse, listen as he explains what a conservative is:

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
