Democrat DINOs are flipping like Tiddly Winks and the sheriff of Smyth County in Virginia decided it was finally time to join them and go full fledged Republican. He couldn’t take the “relentless attack on law enforcement by Democrats” a single second longer.
Democrat admits his mistake
He always felt a little strange, but Sheriff Chip Shuler finally realized it was time to come out of the closet. “I have always been a conservative throughout my law enforcement career of 38 years,” he admits. He hid it by registering Democrat.
Being registered with a party and believing in their principals are two totally different things. Liberal Progressives got too radical and violent. Once his party of choice made it clear that anyone in Law Enforcement is on the “wrong” side, he had enough.
The Smyth County Sheriff ran as a Democrat in 2015, then was solidly re-elected again with a “D” after his name in 2019. That ended for good on Monday when he filed his membership application to join the GOP.
He personally handed in the paperwork to Republican County Chairman Adam Tolbert. It didn’t take long before his application “was unanimously approved” by the whole committee.
He was beginning to feel ashamed to be a card-carrying Democrat so decided to do something about it.
“I am changing to the Republican Party,” he announced in an official statement, “because of the relentless attack on law enforcement by Democrats in Richmond and Washington.” He has nothing but praise for those who work under his command. “My deputies work hard to serve and protect the citizens of Smyth County,” he declares.
As Sheriff, Shuler found it “difficult to watch my deputies try to move forward during this unprecedented assault on our profession.” All those Democrat cries to “defund” him and his department got under his skin. “We remain an honorable profession and should not be judged by the bad acts of a few,” he insists.
He found it hard to look at himself in the mirror to shave every morning. That’s when he came to the conclusion “I have always been a conservative.” It never seemed to matter so much before.
Chairman Tolbert welcomed Sheriff Shuler into the conservative wing of the Republican party with wide open arms. Any Democrat who wants to switch sides is welcome. “I congratulate Sheriff Shuler on taking this bold move to leave the Democratic Party and join the Republican Party.”
“We are thrilled to have him as a member.” At the same time, Any RINOs who call themselves moderates are encouraged to leave peacefully now, before they’re tossed from the party through censorship, heckling and “defunding” of their campaigns later.
Shuler isn’t the first DINO defector to bail from the Democrat party in horror. He’s also the “third sheriff in Southwest Virginia” to switch sides in the battle of Biblical proportions.
“Sheriff Brian Hieatt of Tazewell County and Sheriff John McClanahan of Buchanan County made their moves in 2020.”
