RNC Member Rants About Trump's Racism During Private Meeting

Holland Redfield let party officials have it last night before the debate.

Some members of the Republican National Committee are not at all happy with what Donald Trump is doing, and one of them spoke out against him at a breakfast meeting before Thursday's debate, painting a picture of how some members feel about the party's hard swing to white nationalism.

Holland Redfield of the U.S. Virgin Islands, finally said what so many others keep to themselves.

"You can argue with me, but we’re almost terrorized as members of our party. ‘Shut up. Toe the line, embrace each other, and let’s go forward.’ I understand that. But there is a limit to loyalty. I am loyal to this party by speaking out on these very issues,” Redfield said.

Although he never called Trump out by name, it was clear who he was talking about. "As a party, we owe it to ourselves to speak up, and not let the tail wag the dog, and not let someone say, all of a sudden, ‘If you don’t play my game, then I’m running as an independent.”

Redfield didn't stop with that. “You’ve got a situation here that when someone is listening to this, either a conservative or a Democrat, or a Republican, or an independent, there are things that are said on that stage and in the media, that if your child was doing that, you’d put that child over your knee and spank them. You know it, and I know it.”

Everyone knows it, but I'm pretty sure no one will do anything about it. Republicans truly are in disarray right now. No one watching them implode doubts that for a minute. Except, perhaps our political media, who pretends that they're just as viable as Democrats.

I seriously doubt anyone with power -- if there is anyone left with power -- in the RNC will do anything or listen. But it's a pretty stark example of how screwed up the Republican party is.
