RNC launches 'Stop the Madness' campaign to 'cause chaos' within the Democratic Party over Trump impeachment inquiry
The committee wants supporters to sign petitions, donate, and get involved in demonstrations as the Republican party 'fights back on this impeachment craziness'
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has launched a nationwide counter-impeachment campaign titled "Stop the Madness", vowing to cause "chaos" in response to House Democrats' formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald J. Trump.
“Democrats promised to reach across the aisle and work with President Trump and Republicans to serve the American people, but instead are now pushing their hyper-partisan impeachment agenda,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News on Monday. “Enough is enough; Americans are sick and tired of these witch hunts.”
“We are going to hold Democrats accountable for their ridiculous charade and remind voters that their Democrat representative turned their back on them," she added.
The RNC on Monday launched a new website stopthemadnes.gop as part of their aggressive impeachment response, promising to hold House Democrats accountable for their "extreme actions."
RNC spokesman Rick Gorka, who is heading up the campaign, also spoke to Fox News on Monday. “The website is going to be a one-stop-shop for activists and supporters of President Trump across the country to get information on our efforts to cause chaos within the Democratic Party," he said.
According to Gorka, the website is built for supporters who want to sign petitions, donate, and get involved in demonstrations as the Republican party “fights back on this impeachment craziness.”
“Our goal is to cause chaos,” Gorka said. “This is a poison pill. When you couple the impeachment process with the socialist policies being espoused by 2020 Democrats, it’s going to sink their chances at the ballot box, especially with those crucial swing voters and independents across the country.”
The site, which is currently down, aims to highlight Democrats who are in favor of impeachment in districts that Trump won in 2016. “From California to Maine, and everywhere in between, we have dedicated communications and political staff whose sole focus is to drive voter engagement in those districts,” Gorka explained. “This will be a battle in the streets, online, on the airwaves—we have all of the tools at our disposal.”
Furthermore, the RNC has also committed to a $2 million ad buy on both TV and digital platforms including Facebook, Google, YouTube, Spotify, et cetera. Their target congressional districts include Atlanta, Ga.; Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Chicago, Ill.; Charleston, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and more, according to Fox News.
“We’re able to do this and scale nationally because we’re already involved and have never left these states,” Gorka asserted.
Besides, the RNC is also set to engage in a rapid response effort led by RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest, who will spearhead email campaigns and response in real time during ongoing events.
According to Gorka, the effort can be described in whole as “Kavanaugh on steroids.”
