Fred Dryer, the former All-Pro NFL defensive end and Hollywood actor of shows like Hunter and Cheers, is furious at the Republican establishment for waging war against the Tea Party.
He sees the establishment as surrendering to the mainstream media and accepting its stereotypes about conservatives.
Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon, Dryer said it was the "dumbest thing" for the GOP establishment to abandon constitutional principles when the country – and the constitution – is center right.
He blasted GOP establishment honchos like Ed Gillespie for doing nothing but watering down conservative candidates.
"They put them through a series of washings to get all that independent thinking out of there," Dryer said before emphasizing that the "cowardice that is in the Republican Party today is only matched by their myopic opinions of themselves."
Dryer said the Republican Party bosses want to be liked by The New York Times and have bought into and been "intimidated into believing" the notion that, if they oppose liberal policies, they are "racist, sexist, homophobe, those types of things." He said the establishment Republicans have done an excellent job of institutionalizing "complete stupidity" by adopting and abiding by various rules that "only weaken them" in national elections.
