The House Freedom Caucus’ support for Paul Ryan’s “highly-conditional bid for House speaker” has left patriots perplexed, with the vast majority of comments on the announcement posted on Facebook decidedly negative.

“Don’t do it. Just don’t cave now…” said Brooke McGowan, Executive Director of Concerned Christians For America. “Why are you not hearing your supporters and constituents???” lamented conservative talk show host Doc Thompson. “PAUL RYAN is sellout Progressive!” he continued.

As reported at Breitbart, Ryan is a fan of amnesty for illegal immigrants and has even “smeared his own constituents who oppose large-scale immigration, and suggested that their aversion to the Ryan-Rubio ‘New America’ vision is fueled by ‘ignorance.'”

Another commenter summed up the author’s feelings:

You all might trust him, but I sure don’t. His votes are not representative of someone who has any intention of limiting government. Terribly, terribly disappointed. I hope you’ll share the names of the politicians who supported Ryan, and the Constitutional conservatives who didn’t.

Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham took exception to Ryan’s conditions, tweeting:

It is unclear why the House Freedom Caucus exists if they ultimately bow to the establishment, such as in the case of the devastating opinion of the “supermajority” to “support Paul Ryan’s bid to become the next Speaker of the House,” as posted on Facebook.

Referring vaguely to the wannabe-Boehner replacement as a “policy entrepreneur,” the House Freedom Caucus gave no specifics about what it was that enamors them about Ryan, but noted that Ryan “…has promised to be an ideas-focused Speaker who will advance limited government principles and devolve power to the membership…”

Another commenter said in part: “If the Freedom Caucus caves, who is left for us?…”

Tell the House Freedom Caucus how you feel about it on Twitter and Facebook.
