In 2018, Mike Braun won the nomination to take on Joe Donnelly for the U.S. Senate seat from Indiana. In the primary, two very strong conservatives duked it out and ended up splitting the vote, leaving Braun with enough votes to become the nominee with only 41% of the vote. It was pretty unexpected. Most of us reluctantly voted for Braun in the general election even though he ran an awful campaign and had to have Trump come support him, in Indiana against a Democrat, late in the race.
He has been mostly a non-entity in the Senate and when he does speak, he sounds like a buffoon. But then he decided what the people of one of the most conservative states in the Union really want is for their Senator to announce he supports the anti-White Marxist front known by the risible name "black Lives Matter". Oh and also to make it easier to sue cops. That is what Hoosiers want. Then to really cap it off, he decided to go mix it up with Tucker Carlson. What could go wrong?
This might be the most embarrassing thing to ever come out of Indiana....
What the hell was Braun thinking, going on Tucker with apparently no preparation? Has he never seen the show and is he unaware that Carlson doesn't accept empty slogans at face value? Thanks to Tucker for tearing Braun apart and humiliating him on national TV. Senator Braun deserved it and more.
We sent in this letter to Senator Braun and if anything I had to tone down what I really wanted to say:
As Hoosiers who voted for you in 2018, we watched with what can only be described as humiliation at your appearance with Tucker Carlson. That someone who ran as a conservative and was elected by the votes of Indiana conservatives, someone President Trump made a special trip to endorse right before the election, could state his support for an openly Marxist, anti-American, anti-family, anti-police and anti-White racialist organization like “Black Lives Matter” is an embarrassment to the good people of Indiana. Either you have not taken the time to investigate what the “Black Lives Matter” movement actually stands for before endorsing it, a complete dereliction of your responsibilities as an elected representative of the people of Indiana, or you do know that “Black Lives Matter” is a far left racialist organization pushing things like the elimination of the traditional family and you still voiced your support. Either way, your statement is outrageous.
Then you go on Tucker Carlson and he rightly took you apart on camera for your statements. Do you think that the cops on the streets in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and Gary are supportive of your endorsement of “Black Lives Matter” and making it easier to sue them for doing the difficult work that they risk their lives for every day? Do you really think that the right way to deal with a criminal who assaulted police officers and fired a weapon at them is to just let him go, in the hopes of catching him later? Is that the sort of policing you want for Indiana, because we can tell you with absolute certainty that it isn’t the sort of policing the people that voted for you want. We support our police, and we support the rule of law, not a country where criminals can assault cops, steal weapons from them, fire those weapons at a cop and when the cop defends himself, the cop gets fired and faces the death penalty.
As our Senator, you represent the people of Indiana and as the man we voted for in 2018, you represent us even more specifically. This isn’t what we voted for. This isn’t what we will vote for again in 2024. You need to stay off TV and spend some time back in your state, listening to the people who voted for you, and then rethink your support of a Marxist race-based, anti-police terror group.
Saying we are disappointed in your statement isn’t nearly strong enough. We are ashamed to have voted for you and ashamed to have you representing Indiana in the United States Senate.
You better be sure Braun will face a primary challenge in 2024 and we will enthusiastically support them if they are reasonably competent because Mike Braun clearly is an idiot.
This isn't the first time Braun has betrayed his base, he is quite enthusiastic about "red flag laws" as he expressed to me in a letter last August: Senator Mike Braun Betrays His Base.
I hope Todd Rokita or pretty much anyone else in Indiana will run against Braun in 2024 but no matter what I won't cast another vote for him.
