What Does Republican Mean to You? - 08-21-2019, 09:21 AM

Consider the 10k replies.

A California lawmaker asked Twitter: What does 'Republican' mean to you? He got more than 10,000 replies

Chad Mayes, a Republican state lawmaker who represents the Coachella Valley in the California Assembly, has for years questioned the future of the state's Republican Party. On Monday, Mayes turned to Twitter to crowd-source answers to this quandary.

“What does ‘Republican’ mean to you? A sincere question,” he wrote to his approximately 3,200 followers.

Just 24 hours later, Mayes had received more than 10,000 responses. They were overwhelmingly negative. Among the replies were personal anecdotes, philosophical takes, critiques of President Donald Trump and a lot of biting political cartoons and memes.

“Fascinating. Keep the comments coming," Mayes responded. On Tuesday afternoon, he retweeted himself and wrote: "Hey fellow Republicans, if you want to know what people think of us, read the comments. It’s instructive.


Chad Mayes asked his Twitter followers what 'Republican' means to them.

Mayes didn’t respond to The Desert Sun’s requests for comment on Tuesday. But the tweets he received likely didn’t boost his confidence in the direction of the California GOP.

As of February 2019, less than a quarter of California voters were registered as Republican, according to the California Secretary of State's office. Voters haven't sent a Republican to statewide elected office in California since 2006.

Mayes stepped down from his role as head of the Assembly Republican caucus in 2017 after facing intense criticism for siding with then-Gov. Jerry Brown and Assembly Democrats on a key climate change initiative. In early 2018, Mayes announced the formation of an organization, New Way California, designed to promote what he called "true Republican values."

In a November 2018 opinion piece published in The Desert Sun, Mayes noted that the number of registered Republican voters and elected officials in California has taken a “dramatic drop” and Trump’s statements on immigration, gender equality and the environment have “further damaged the Republican brand in California.”

“The California Republican Party must be willing to abandon toxic messengers and outdated thinking and adopt policy approaches that will meet the needs of today’s California,” Mayes wrote. “Otherwise, it will have no future.”

Family ties
In her response to Mayes' question, Cate Eland described her experience with Republican relatives and friends.

“Their politics are selfish and paranoid,” wrote Eland, whose Twitter bio says she is from Austin, Texas. “They are steeped in propaganda and refuse to listen to anything other than sources that confirm their bias. They believe theirs is the only right way to live.”


Natalie Finn, an editor at E! News, also left a personal response. Republican, she said, means “social oppression hiding behind bogus claims of ‘religious freedom,’ which is why mom is now an independent.”

“The so-called ‘moral majority’ really ruined it for the people who cared about states’ rights and free markets,” Finn wrote.


New slogans

A Twitter user named Genevieve, who on Twitter calls herself a "fighter of fascism" and "social justice warrior," responded to Mayes' question with a string of words:

“Anti-women, anti-white, anti-education, anti-environment, anti-non Christian, anti non wealthy, anti-fact, anti-decency, anti-freedom, anti-equality, anti-human and essentially anti-American."

"They are everything the Constitution is supposed to protect us from,” she wrote.


Meanwhile, Carol Vernon, who identifies herself on Twitter as a "Liberal/Dem & advocate for human rights," suggested just three words, "Greedy Old Predators," a play on the acronym GOP, which stands for Grand Old Party.


Politics as usual
A few people on Twitter tried to strike a more even tone.

“I would not say that all Republicans are evil,” wrote Michael Okuda, who on Twitter describes himself as a graphic designer. “But the good ones have been MIA, leaving their party overrun by corrupt, traitorous xenophobes and bullies with no compassion, and with no regard for American law, American values, or the American people.”


Meanwhile, Joey Hurst, who on Twitter calls himself a father and mentor to at-risk students, said both the Republican and Democratic parties are “full of lies and self agenda.”

“Only way to fix government is get rid of parties and let people think for themselves,” he wrote.

Ask the same stupid question in Texas about Democrats.....I bet you wouldn't like what they say.....but yahoo in cali about republicans, it fits your narrative.

This is beyond stupid.


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.

I love playing pool. I love watching pool. I love reading about pool.

However, because you choose to post such a strong political stand while perpetuating hate towards the president, I would NEVER purchase your book.

Maybe I'm the only one that feels this way, but I may not be. If I'm not, you may want to ask yourself what is more important to you, your book sales or spewing political opinions.

Just know these opinions you choose to post day in and day out has prevented at least one sale.
