Fred Dryer, the former All-Pro NFL defensive end and Hollywood actor of shows like Hunter and Cheers, is furious at the Republican establishment for waging war against the Tea Party.

He sees the establishment as surrendering to the mainstream media and accepting its stereotypes about conservatives.

Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon, Dryer said it was the "dumbest thing" for the GOP establishment to abandon constitutional principles when the country – and the constitution – is center right.

He blasted GOP establishment honchos like Ed Gillespie for doing nothing but watering down conservative candidates.

"They put them through a series of washings to get all that independent thinking out of there," Dryer said before emphasizing that the "cowardice that is in the Republican Party today is only matched by their myopic opinions of themselves."

Dryer said the Republican Party bosses want to be liked by The New York Times and have bought into and been "intimidated into believing" the notion that, if they oppose liberal policies, they are "racist, sexist, homophobe, those types of things." He said the establishment Republicans have done an excellent job of institutionalizing "complete stupidity" by adopting and abiding by various rules that "only weaken them" in national elections.

To Dryer, this has been going on since President Ronald Reagan left office. Dryer blasted the "neocons" aligned with President George H.W. Bush, whom he accused of undermining everything Reagan was trying to accomplish. Dryer even slammed Bush's "1000 points of light" speech as a slam on Reagan's "shining city on a hill" rhetoric. Dryer said that since George H.W. Bush got elected president, Republicans have progressively moved to the left because of "his people."

Dryer then lamented that America's youth are not taught civics anymore, and he said that the only reason someone like President Barack Obama can get elected twice is that people do not know anything about the Constitution and "what kind of government they have."

Breitbart News Senior Legal Analyst Ken Klukowski, who was in studio, said Dryer would make a better constitutional law professor than half of the current professors. Dryer said he would like to see more conservative candidates who can articulate "truth" and "common sense" and have an understanding of the vision of the country's founding fathers.

Dryer, who played college football at San Diego State during the 1960s, said he saw liberalism come up from the ground when it was a nascent movement. He said it has turned into a "hideous beast" in the last 50 years. He said the Tea Party in 2010 tapped into the desire of Americans to restore the country to its founding principles and move it away from that "hideous beast," and the movement's success shocked the Republican establishment more than it did liberals.

Dryer said leaders on both sides, though, couldn't care less about constitutionalism and Americanism, and want people like him to just die and go away so there wouldn't be people who can impart institutional knowledge to today's young people about what it means to be an American and why the nation – and the Constitution – is exceptional.

He was particularly disappointed by the Republican establishment's leaders, though. Dryer blamed them for doing an "excellent job in killing [the Tea Party] movement" after 2010, and he said he wants to see more people "step forward and articulate" a "strong constitutional narrative."

Dryer, echoing Reagan, said freedom can be lost in a generation and that Americans who do not understand the country's fundamental principles are losing the country. He was upset that the Republican establishment is doing nothing about it.

He said the establishment GOP is not setting the narrative and not fighting for conservative values or even educating young people about what it means to be an American or "what is happening to their country."

Wow.

Fred gets it, doesn't he?

Bravo!
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Not very many of them, but there are a few that know what's going on.

Like Sean Penn? :silly:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
