National Review writer calls them Oday and Qusay Trump

In a column ironically titled "Manners, Even in the Age of Trump," Kevin D. Williamson dares to lecture us on civility -- by calling President Trump's sons Oday and Qusay.

Williamson is an adolescent who never grew up.

While he dreams of being the next Buckley or P.J. O'Rourke, Williamson wiles away the hours deliberating on which name next to call President Trump and his 62,979,879 supporters -- the most votes ever received by a Republican candidate for president.

To call the writings childish is to insult children, who by the nature of their youth lack both the education and experience to know not to call people names.

But by age 44, Williamson should know the limits of name-calling, no matter how much one's colleagues at the National Review encourage him. An insult can enhance a column, like a glass of wine enhances a meal.

This guy is the town drunk at National Review.

Here is from Williamson's coverage of President Trump announcing his entry into the presidential race:
Donald Trump, being Donald Trump, announced his candidacy at Trump Tower, making a weird grand entrance via escalator — going down, of course, the symbolism of which is lost on that witless ape. But who could witness that scene — the self-made man who started with nothing but a modest portfolio of 27,000 New York City properties acquired by his millionaire slumlord father, barely out of his latest bankruptcy and possibly headed for another one as the casino/jiggle-joint bearing his name sinks into the filthy mire of the one U.S. city that makes Las Vegas look respectable, a reality-television grotesque with his plastic-surgery-disaster wife, grunting like a baboon about our country’s “brand” and his own vast wealth — and not see the peerless sign of our times?
Here is Williamson's description of President Trump's rural voters nine months later:
If you spend time in hardscrabble, white upstate New York, or eastern Kentucky, or my own native West Texas, and you take an honest look at the welfare dependency, the drug and alcohol addiction, the family anarchy—which is to say, the whelping of human children with all the respect and wisdom of a stray dog—you will come to an awful realization. It wasn’t Beijing. It wasn’t even Washington, as bad as Washington can be. It wasn’t immigrants from Mexico, excessive and problematic as our current immigration levels are. It wasn’t any of that.
Nothing happened to them. There wasn’t some awful disaster. There wasn’t a war or a famine or a plague or a foreign occupation. Even the economic changes of the past few decades do very little to explain the dysfunction and negligence — and the incomprehensible malice — of poor white America. So the gypsum business in Garbutt ain’t what it used to be. There is more to life in the 21st century than wallboard and cheap sentimentality about how the Man closed the factories down.
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.
That piece also implied they are Nazis.

And now nine months after throwing that piece of feces at Trump, Williamson threw this out:
My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic. 
Williamson is one of a roster of faux conservatives at the National Review who hijacked the Republican Party with their New World Order dogma installed in the Bush 41 regime.

Thankfully, this election marginalized them, shoving them to the corner alongside the John Birch Society and the 9/11 Truthers.

  1. "The malice of poor white America..." Kevin, you better hope you don't run into me in an elevator. I lived in that shithole cesspool DC for 28 years and can tell you for a FACT, the average Joe in West Virginia has about a hundred thousand more fibers of goodness than them, or you.

  2. So he is from West Texas. His parents whelped him then? Should have whipped him more like.

    2. Surely the town of West has suffered enough without having this jackass claiming citizenship.

    3. Ah, he must be from Rotan. The asshole doesn't know a direction isn't capitalized when describing a part of Texas. I have relatives there, salt of the earth people unlike Kevin.

    4. Infogalactic says he started out at the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. Kevin is a wannabe elitist, so he continually tries to prove to the "Better People" that he isn't Deplorable like the rest of his ilk by fawning over them while making up insults about people who really are better than he is.

      IE, Kevin is the real Q here: QUISLING.

  3. Sounds like he should be the teen editor at Vogue.

    Or have a "husband" that's a failed lawyer.

  5. Ever watch that movie Step Brothers?

    The whole generation (extending forward) is developmentally delayed.

    And yeah; we rubbed our stuff on the RINO's drumsets.

  7. I saw this this morning on another blog. Kevin definitely has anger issues. Born in another country he would probably been eagerly incinerating chained Turks to show contempt for the enemies of his bearded masters. I've been to a few small towns in Texas while shooting there and a number in upstate New York, where I live. I have yet to meet anyone seething with such rage at their plight. With regard to NY, one of the reasons it is suffering now is that the liberal elite HC supporting jackles in NYC will not let their collared servant Cuomo allow fracking there. They say they are afraid of smothering from climate change in their 20000 SF Hampton mansions. But what they really fear is that all those cretin savages Kevin despises will get more numerous and more wealthy if fracking occurs and out vote them and their imported nannies. Why doesn't he wail about such injustice? I have no idea. He would rather squeal about the character of someone who actually wants to help people exchange the concrete shoes they now wear for sneakers, because his wife and children are comely, because he chose to build something with his life and inheritance rather than endlessly indulge himself. My friend Cicero says the greatest duty for a man is to serve in public life. Trump is trying to do just that. What is Kevin doing? Serving his sclerotic masters as a buffoon by barfing onto their little stage, sur demande. I guess it's a living better than mining gypsum.

  8. Williamson is a lackey to his "betters" and benefactors who pay him. Globalist and elite they can't say or print the things that Williamson is tasked to say or write in public. He aspires to join them as elite but will never be even though he yearns so. He hates his own background, dismisses the very people who succored and educated him giving him advantages and education, like an arrested development adolescent who can't get past the distancing phase in human growth to adulthood. I would be interested to know if he was this angry and hateful during his youth. He seems to be stuck at age 15.

  10. Further justification for my dumping NR some years ago. With the passing of William F. Buckley, the rag has pretty much destroyed itself.

  11. Heavy Kevvie's trying to show he's a man.

    That NR column is his rolled-up sock.

  12. If Richie Rich Lowry had had an iota of common sense left, he would've thrown Kevvie on his a$$ when he wrote that diatribe about the "white American underclass." But he didn't and NR is circling the drain now; soon those initials will only stand for the New Republic, which it's becoming a copy of. William F. must be spinning in his grave at warp speed. Every great man makes a mistake---Reagan kept GHW Bush as his veep in '84 and WFB chose Richie Rich. We survived Reagan's error but NR won't survive WFB's. Sad.

  13. Kevin Williamson has not always been so stupid. He had several good columns before he fell sick with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS.) Many Republicans have fallen sick with it, even more than the BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) sufferers of so long ago. Is it only seven and a half years?

  14. I have nothing personal against the NeverTrump National Review. But they can't expect me to read them or take them seriously after completely missing the Trump revolution. Williamson, Goldberg, most of the rest of the NRO stable, even little James Lileks, all are not really worth reading anymore. They are not on my side. They are preaching to their shrinking choir, and the remaining members can't sing.

  15. NR next year: clickbait site you catch in the corner of your eye when on a site you're interested in.

  16. "My own view is that Donald and Ivanka ... are genuinely bad human beings."

    On the basis of what, exactly? Has he ever spoken to either? Sure, The Donald made some crude comments (for which he made a public apology), when did he crash wedding parties to rape the brides in front of the guests, or run living human beings through wood chippers (feet first so the screams lasted longer) and then leave the remains in a garbage bag in front of the families door? The comparison is grotesque.
