Multiple Republican lawmakers have come out against an “America First Caucus” created by their colleagues that emphasizes “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.”

Punchbowl News reported Friday the caucus was formed by GOP Reps.

Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation,” according to a document obtained by the outlet.

The document also included a number of false statements concerning immigrants, foreign aid, and US elections, as Insider’s Sonam Sheth reported.

A number of Republicans have since condemned the caucus, with Rep.

Adam Kinzinger of Illinois saying anyone who joins should be punished by the GOP.

“I believe anyone that joins this caucus should have their committees stripped, and the Republican conference should expel them from conference participation,” Kinzinger said in a tweet.

“While we can’t prevent someone from calling themselves Republican, we can loudly say they don’t belong to us.”

Kinzinger is a regular critic of former president Donald Trump and his most loyal allies, but some Republicans less critical came out in opposition as well.

“The hatefulness of this statement is only surpassed by its ignorance of American history and values,” Rep.

Ken Buck of Colorado tweeted of the caucus document.

Others did not mention the caucus by name but came forward to condemn nativism, a policy of protecting the interests of the native-born against those of immigrants, saying it has no place in the GOP.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, a strong ally of Trump, tweeted in an apparent reference to the caucus.

“America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work.

It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion,” he said.

“The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles.”

Rep.

Liz Cheney of Wyoming also sought to separate the GOP from some of the ideals outlined in the caucus document.

“Republicans believe in equal opportunity, freedom, and justice for all.

We teach our children the values of tolerance, decency and moral courage.

Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil.

History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate,” she said in a tweet.

A number of Trump loyalists plan to join the caucus, according to Punchbowl News, including Rep.

Matt Gaetz of Florida, who is currently facing a federal sex-trafficking probe.

Gaetz tweeted he is “proud” to join the caucus.

The Capitol (Niall Carson/PA)

Hard-right House Republicans were discussing forming an America First Caucus, which one document described as championing “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and warning that mass immigration was putting the “unique identity” of the US at risk.

The proposal was first reported by Punchbowl News, a news outlet covering Capitol Hill.

The document was being circulated as the Republicans struggle to determine a clear direction as it prepares to try winning back control of the House and Senate in the 2022 elections.

America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work.

It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion.

The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles.

— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) April 16, 2021

Among the party’s divisions are how closely to tack behind Donald Trump, and the caucus’ seven-page policy platform clearly embraces the former president’s world view.

“The America First Caucus (AFC) exists to promote Congressional policies that are to the long-term benefit of the American nation,” it begins.

It says the group aims to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps, and potentially step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation”.

The group calls for limiting legal immigration “to those that can contribute not only economically, but have demonstrated respect for this nation’s culture and rule of law”.

It voices support for infrastructure “that reflects the architectural, engineering and aesthetic value that befits the progeny of European architecture”.

In a striking criticism, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued a tweet that an aide confirmed was aimed at the group.

“America is built on the idea that we are all created equal and success is earned through honest, hard work.

“It isn’t built on identity, race, or religion,” Mr McCarthy wrote.

Republicans believe in equal opportunity, freedom, and justice for all.

We teach our children the values of tolerance, decency and moral courage.

Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil.

History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate.

— Liz Cheney (@Liz_Cheney) April 16, 2021

“The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles.”

Liz Cheney, who represents Wyoming, tweeted: “We teach our children the values of tolerance, decency and moral courage.

“Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil.

“History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate.”

Ms Cheney voted to impeach Mr Trump in January and has been under fire from some of the party’s most far-right politicians and the former president.

Most of the “America First” platform has been floated individually before, with the same ugly intent: voter suppression, immigration restrictions, classical architecture, tech censorship. Is it the bundling or the rhetoric (progeny, Anglo-Saxon) that makes it more alarming now?
