Op-Ed: Who does the Left support in Idaho’s Republican primary elections?By David Goerg • May 19, 2022
The following Op-Ed was submitted by David Goerg. Note: Op-Eds do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of those at the Idaho Dispatch.
The New York Times, a popular left-leaning news outlet, recently propped up Brad Little as Janice McGeachin challenges his governor-ship.
The New York Times recently published a piece entitled:
“A Fracture in Idaho’s G.O.P. as the Far Right Seeks Control”
It is widely acknowledged that the New York Times is a left-leaning publication – and if this is the case, we can gain insight into the perspectives and intentions of the Left itself by reading its articles, many of which are intended to combat the growing influence of the Right.
It’s always interesting to see what the New York Times will say as it tries to sway public perception of Idaho.
In this particular article, we see the New York Times heavily favoring the establishment candidate for Idaho Governor, incumbent Brad Little.
The liberal author even characterized Janice McGeachin’s actions as Lt. Gov. as “mutinous,” apparently forgetting that government officials in America owe allegiance to the Constitution and “the People,” not to popular party leaders.
It strikes me as strange to see supposedly conservative officials in Idaho being propped up by one of the most influential media outlets on the Left.
As for the labels which they employ against Liberty-minded candidates, I must say that if I wasn’t perceived as “zealous” for the cause of Liberty I would be embarrassed and ashamed of myself.
From the article:
“Mr. Riggs said the local party has been increasingly taken over by zealots motivated by a desire to limit the influence of government, sometimes at the expense of the traditional Republican goals of promoting business and growth[.]”

Grand Old Politburo=Long March fellow travelers of the Uniparty to burn down America for the globalists.
“…motivated by a desire to limit the influence of government?” Sounds like a Constitutionalist to me.
Traditional Republican goals have become less and less about taming government back and lessening its impact on our lives and more about supporting the role of big business at the expense of individual liberty. Democrats have become the party of Mao Zedong. Fascism vs communism vs fascism vs communism. Neither is limited government which is what “right-wing” indeed IS for.
I’ve tried to ask questions of “Idaho Chooses Life” as to why they supported Little, Bedke, etc. They have a nine member “board”, but they haven’t told me who these nine members are. Something doesn’t smell right about this. They also paid for advertising against Giddings, saying she was lying about her prolife record.
They always use clever/deceiving sounding titles like the RINO group, Take Back Idaho. They always claim to be conservative, but they finance the establishment!
I couldn’t believe it when I saw who they were endorsing. Sadly, people will just see that and vote for those because they are “pro life “. Being pro life is a super important issue for me. But it’s not the only one. I’d say “idaho chooses life” is part of the establishment as well
The NYT left leaning. Haha. They are just to the left of me
% lefty loons. They need to keep their nose out of Idaho business. They, as well as the LA Times, have no clue what it means to be a true Idahoan. They are all lunatics that need to stick to all their elitists gossip. It’s really all they are good for. Heaven knows they aren’t real journalists. lol
Anyone who interprets the constitution as originally intended by its framers are “Far Right” in the eyes of the Left and Rinos (but I repeat myself).
The NYT are very out of touch with Idahoans. But their endorsements of RINOs like Little et al give us ammunition to persuade the electorate that the Establishment CANNOT be trusted. Use these gifts from the MSM as Judo moves and let us work to unseat the Swamp Things from power.
