Miles ‘Anonymous’ Taylor tells NBC News that he’s quitting the GOP, because there’s no way to save it – twitchy.com

Hands up: Who actually cares about anything Miles Taylor has to say? If you don’t remember him, he, as “Anonymous,” published an op-ed in the New York Times criticizing the Trump administration; this was a big deal because “Anonymous” was billed as a “senior-level official.” CNN’s Chris Cillizza guess that the author could have been Vice President Mike Pence, but it turned out to be Taylor, a former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security — hardly a “senior-level official.”

We most recently heard from Taylor on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” where he claimed that MAGA Republicans “want to kill me.”

Taylor is putting his life on the line again in a piece for NBC News in which he claims he’s left the Republican Party, which we thought he’d done a long time ago. Apparently, the mass shooting in Buffalo was the last straw.

Taylor lays out his case against the GOP, although he does think Rep. Liz Cheney, a “rock-ribbed conservative,” is still pretty cool.

The vitriolic GOP rhetoric is inspiring violent radicals, and I don’t say that lightly.

After more than a decade in counterterrorism, it’s clear to me that my party is mainstreaming conspiracy theories that are fueling a statistical spike in political intimidation, attitudes toward violence and the specter of domestic terrorism that we witnessed this weekend in New York.

This isn’t a partisan broadside. It’s a public safety warning. The Buffalo shooter was apparently radicalized by racist viewpoints that many Republicans espouse, and that danger can’t be tolerated any longer.

Again, never mind that we all saw the shooter’s manifesto, and he wasn’t inspired by the GOP or Tucker Carlson or Fox News.

“More than a decade in counterterrorism” — OK, buddy.

Maybe The Lincoln Project will take him in … how old is he again?
