Here is what we know…

On Thursday (May 19), two days after losing his Republican primary, Rep. Madison Cawthorn called out those who “turned their guns” on him, stating that now is the time for the “new right” and “Dark MAGA” to take control.

The North Carolina congressman took to Instagram, stating, “When the establishment turned their guns on me, when the Uni-party coalesced to defeat an America First member very few people had my back.”
Cawthorn went on to list those who “came to [his] defense when it was not politically profitable.”
Included on the list were former President Donald Trump, Sen. Rand Paul, and Reps. Matt Gaetz, Steve Bannon, and Marjorie Taylor Greene, among others.

The North Carolina Republican added, “These are honorable men and women who are the type of friends anyone yearns to have.”
He also quoted an unattributed phrase, “‘At the beginning of a change the patriot is a rare and hated man,'” continuing that his list included “those rare and hated men/women.”

Cawthorn then revealed a plan “to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work towards another, self-profiteering, globalist goal,” threatening that “The time for genteel politics as usual has to end. It’s time for the rise of the new right, it’s time for Dark MAGA to truly take command.”

He acknowledged that the group has an “enemy to defeat” among Democrats but noted that “cowardly and weak” Republicans would have to go first-term.

His statements come after a narrow lost to North Carolina’s Republican primary state Senator Chuck Edwards, following weeks of enduring scandal after scandal.
