I have a ton of respect for Jonah Goldberg, but it has become apparent that he has fallen to "Trump Derangement Syndrome" (TDS), a recent variant of "Bush Derangement Syndrome". He definitely needs some "Whale Time" (see Bible) to reflect on deeper issues and a broader perspective.
What **IS** unique about this juncture is that TDS affects both sides of the political spectrum, so we are "crossing the streams". If you read this blog, you know that I am WELL aware of the tragedy of BO, but in my disgust, I have forgotten that history repeats itself "First as tragedy, then as farce"! I have realized that we are in the "Ghostbusters Election"!
I'm a member of the closed group "Fans of Best of the Web", and what is going on out there is THIS!
In all seriousness, can't conservatives get SOME sense of perspective??? My God, we lived through Slick Willie staining dresses and ejaculating all over the Oval Office! The Democrats have killed 60 million babies in their mothers wombs, Facebook has 58 genders (they had 57, but they got Heinz 57 jokes so they added one), people are cheering over 7 year old girls changing to boys. Sodom and Gomorrah were moral Amish Villages compared to America today, and people are worried about he "Republican Brand"?
Better the GOP do battle with a know-nothing bigot (and lose the presidency) than become the party of know-nothing bigots (and still lose the presidency).
That's why I embrace the Twitter hashtag #NeverTrump, initiated by conservative talk show host Erick Erickson. For too long, Trump has benefited from the assumption that the non-Trump faction of the party will be "reasonable" and support the nominee. Such thinking paves the road to power for demagogues."We have met the enemy and he is us". Being conservative is to have a STRONG willingness to face reality. Did the "establishment" of the Republican Party really think that we were going to live in the "post stain cesspool" that is America and not "get any on us"? As I've said before, what part of "NO RULES" is it that purist Republicans are missing? Sure, Trump may WELL be the "form of our destructor" (this IS the Ghostbusters election after all).
Have we forgotten that we face Hildebeast? The Abomination of Desolation!
I really don't even find the KKK flap to be worthy of comment. Consider this. How likely is it that some reporter is going to talk to Hillary about the BLM protesters screaming "Pigs in blankets, fry them like bacon" and see if she wants to "repudiate them"? The fact that the MSM treats R's like that and the fact that not only OUR supposedly conservative commentators that know better fall for it (like NR), is exactly why Trump is popular. People are so sick of the hypocrisy that they just want tough nasty in your face talk like BO and the entire left has been treating us "Bitter Clingers" to for 7 years and much longer.
They want to call us "racist" for saying "All" or "Blue" lives matter? Can any human NOT feel the "F you!" rise up in their craw when that happens? I **AM** PROUD to be a White American! I'm even proud to be a MALE -- and not "Cisgendered". TP and now apparently NR demand that half the country hang their heads and grovel. If that works, as it looks it will, we are even more "done" than I thought we were.
BO and "The Party (TP-D)" have been calling us out for a LONG time here. It has obviously made Mittens Romney and others "uncomfortable".
Take the "Rock Ribbed" pragmatic tough fight out of Republican and you REALLY have no "brand" at all remaining! Let THIS be the battle cry of 2016!
We came, we saw, we kicked their asses!
