GOP Rep. And Iraq War Veteran Peter Meijer Rips Those Willing to Destroy the Country for More Power

Ever since he was elected in November of 2020, Peter Meijer has been an odd fit in Donald Trump’s Republican party. The Michigan Rep. has been principled from day one, willing to call out colleagues whether they be Democrats or Republicans.

This certainly includes Donald Trump. Meijer voted to impeach Donald Trump during the second impeachment. He was also one of 35 congressional Republicans who voted to hold a commission on the January 6th insurrection. And on Memorial Day, he blasted those who will destroy the country if it means more power for them.

The lawmaker tweeted, “I struggle with Memorial Day. Stupid hot takes + brow-beatings from the holier-than-thous. Memories + knowledge that for too many it’s a reminder of a father, mother, wife, husband, son, daughter gone. Our shared obligation to make this nation worthy of their sacrifice.”

Meijar continued, “And then there are those who take this sacrifice for granted, waxing patriotic while salivating for civil war. Claiming they need to destroy the Republic in order to save it in the ultimate betrayal of oaths sworn. Those treacherous snakes can go straight to hell.”

The Michigan Rep. closed his comments, “Today & always, remember the fallen and those who loved them. Remember what it was they sacrificed for. And remember the need to protect it from the greedy delusions of craven demagogues who’d burn it all down if it meant more power or profit for them.”
