The NDGOP flatly condemns the offensive statements made by a group of Young Republicans this week on their chat platform. We have always encouraged diversity of thought and respectful discourse, along with respect for our political opponents. What we saw this week does not stand in any way, with the views of the NDGOP or the Republican Party.
BISMARCK – Today, Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”) released the following statement in response to this week’s vote by the Fargo School Board to exclude the Pledge of Allegiance from School Board meetings:
“The Fargo School Board vote is an affront to our American values and all who have sacrificed in protecting our freedoms. The claim by the School Board that the Pledge of Allegiance violates their so-called diversity code is nothing short of laughable when you consider that our flag symbolizes a country that is the most diverse and tolerant nation on earth and one that ensures equal opportunity for all. This vote underscores the importance of electing Republicans up and down the ballot this November — and in all local races going forward. We cannot get complacent. We must run good candidates, and they must serve our values to put a stop the radical liberal agenda that is harming our children and the future of our state.”
BISMARCK – Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”), released the following statement in response to the FBI’s raid on the home of former President Donald J. Trump:
“This is a dark day for America. The FBI’s raid on President Trump’s personal home shows a disturbing overreach of our justice system and seriously undermines the public’s trust in our institutions. This is particularly true given the fact that law enforcement has not been nearly as aggressive in investigating Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, who kept classified information on a personal server, and Hunter Biden, whose personal indiscretions and corrupt foreign dealings have left America vulnerable to our adversaries,” said Schafer.
He continued: “Make no mistake about it: the Democrats won’t stop with President Trump; they’re coming for all of us using their unchecked power. Just in the past few days, Democrats have rammed through a massive new spending bill that will hire 87,000 new IRS agents, making it one of the largest, most powerful agencies in Washington that will harass small businesses and the Democrats’ ideological opponents with impunity.”
Schafer concluded, “This raid underscores the importance of electing Republicans in November. Right now, there is no limit on what the Democrats can do. A Republican Congress can put an end to the madness and stop the witch hunt against decent, law-abiding Americans.”
WASHINGTON – Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the raid of Mar-a-Lago:
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Countless times we have examples of Democrats flouting the law and abusing power with no recourse. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous. This abuse of power must stop and the only way to do that is to elect Republicans in November.”
BISMARCK – Today, Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”), released the following statement in response to new details emerging about the Manchin-Schumer “Bidenflation” bill:
“Americans were not fooled by the White House’s recent attempts to change the definition of ‘recession,’ and they certainly will not buy the Biden Administration’s desperate attempt to revive their Build Back Broke spending plan. Plainly stated, this is a terrible bill both for our country and for North Dakota,” said Schafer.
He continued, “When Joe Biden ran for President, he promised over and over again that he would not raise taxes on those making under $400,000 a year. By 2031, this scam plan will shift the new tax burden to up to two-thirds of Americans making less than that, completely violating his campaign promise. The bill will also add $80 billion to the IRS, and $288 billion in subsidies for Obamacare. Instead of investing in the clean and safe domestic energy production that we do here in North Dakota, this bill once again favors Green New Deal-style policies that will enact a new natural gas tax that could take away 100,000 jobs and increase the Royalty Rate on federal lands,”
Schafer concluded, “From the very first day of his administration, Joe Biden cruelly gutted thousands of North Dakota jobs in canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline, and every decision he has made since then has hurt the people of our state. I commend Senators Cramer and Hoeven, along with Congressman Armstrong, for their leadership in opposing this terrible legislation.”
“Joe Biden and the Democrats in Congress have created an economic nightmare for American families. From skyrocketing prices to depressed wages, we are suffering because of the far-left’s grip on the Democratic Party. Make no mistake about it: voters will remember who is responsible for this recession come November.”
