Sen. Ben Sasse Echoes Black Lives Matter In Criticism Of Roy Moore And ‘White Backlash Grievance’

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is in fact a Republican legislator from a state firmly within America’s heartland, but he apparently doesn’t even realize it. In an interview with Jonah Goldberg of The Remnant podcast, Sasse echoed sentiments regarding race and the GOP familiarly expressed by Black Lives Matter activists and others on the radical left.

“I think we’re getting a new kind of identity politics — of, kind of, white backlash grievance,” Sasse said. “Which isn’t surprising that the right would echo the left. It isn’t surprising if you don’t have principles — and it feels like these parties don’t have a lot of principles. And the Alabama Senate race looks just that crappy to me.”

From there, Sasse went on to criticize Judge Moore for his allegedly bigoted views. Despite professing his ignorance on the actual details of the situation, Sasse did not miss an opportunity to virtue-signal on behalf of radical Islam. Once again, Sasse showed solidarity with Black Lives Matter activists by standing with racist, far-left Rep. Keith Ellison (R-MN).

“You can’t have people running for office—I don’t know the particulars of what Moore has said—but as it’s been reported, you can’t have people running for office saying that being a Muslim would be a disqualification for being in Congress. The Constitution is pretty dang clear about not having a religious litmus test,” Sasse said.

It is unclear what principles Sasse is referring to, as he has done little other than regurgitate Democratic talking points during his years in the Senate. Last year, Sasse led the ‘Never Trump’ movement in a desperate crusade to destroy Donald Trump’s chances at the Presidency and instill Hillary Clinton in the White House. His sabotage plan having failed, Sasse continues to undermine the President and other surging anti-establishment Republicans like Judge Roy Moore out of sour grapes.

He might be better served doing what his colleagues Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) have done, and run from office with his tail between his legs. Sasse, who was a long-time federal bureaucrat before being elected Senator, will likely face a tough primary challenger in 2020 if he doesn’t have the grace to bow out before then.


  1. More Fake News. Sasse is 100 percent right on this. Moore is a bigot, a theocrat, and unfit for office. Of course you can thank the GOP Establishment for him bc they spent the whole race attacking Mo Brooks instead. And identity politics is wrong on both sides. And while I think Keith Ellison is unfit to serve in congress it has everything to do with the fact that he’s a racist Farrakkkhan supporter and nothing to do with his religion itself. Ben Sasse is a true constitutional conservative and probably one of the only moral men in Washington who speaks the truth. Oh and good luck trying to primary Sasse. He has scores in the 90s in every conservative organization including liberty score and heritage action where the average republican has a score in 50s. Flake and Corker had scores in the 60s.

    • Um actually he doesn’t he’s just not going to speak as loudly as Sasse does. Rand has already said he may vote against the tax plan. And Roy Moore is a theocrat who believes biblical scripture is above the constitution.

    • The “Establishment” has more morals and decency than Trump could ever have so I’ll happily stand with them. Trump is an authoritarian man baby who doesn’t understand or respect the constitution and cant govern to save his life. Corker was 100 percent right about the white house being an adult day care center.

    • There is no “new brand” of conservatism. There is nothing conservative about wanting to shut down news station through the FCC bc u don’t like what they report. There is nothing conservative about “economic nationalism” which is nothing more but wealth redistribution with a different name. And there is nothing “conservative” about white identity grievance mongering politics. Perhaps your referring to the “alt right” which those of us who love and respect the constitution want nothing to do with bc it promotes hate and demagoguery and believes in Bernie Sanders style economics.

    • Kevin – before Sasse became a senator, he was a long-time federal bureaucrat who served in the Department of Homeland Security under George W. Bush. That’s the guy you bow down for.

      How does it feel to be a useful idiot?

    • Your point being???? He votes the right way which is all that matters prior to running for president trump donated to chuck schumer Nancy pelosi and Harry Reid, said that Hillary would be a “great president” and supported abortion, gun control, higher taxes, single payer healthcare, amnesty and once called mitt Romney “mean spirited” on immigration. Now tell me who’s the useful idiot I could care less who is and isn’t “establishment” as long as they vote the right way trump attracts stupid people like you who are simply blinded by rage and have their heads too far up their ass to care about policy

    • My point is that you’re a complete and utter dupe, and you are apparently proud to be one. Very, very pathetic. If you had any self-awareness, you’d be ashamed of yourself.

  2. Sasse is a disgrace, as in Goldberg. These are the dying gasps of the RINO losers before they realize that Americans have woken up.
