I was flattered when Bill Kristol followed me on Twitter.Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) February 14, 2017
I followed him back.
Today, I decided enough when he tweeted, "Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state."
I have not blocked him. No reason to.
But life is too short for fascism.
And that is what we have in this country. The rich, vain, and powerful are attacking President Trump and his supporters because we pose a threat to their subsidies highlife on the public's dime. Either directly or directly, they all benefit from a federal government that represents more than a third of the national economy.
Kristol and other Washington-based writers beclowned themselves with their over-the-top opposition to Trump in the Republican nomination. Some came home to the party for the general election while others have given him a chance after seeing him show his true conservative colors in appointing Gorsuch and assembling a Cabinet of Competents.
OK, General Flynn proved himself in way over his head. But he is the exception that proves the rule.
I welcome the returnees. Trump won without them. No foul, no harm.
But diehards like Kristol show that for all their decades of whining about Big Government and the like, these PC Conservatives now show that they are just as fascist as the left.
Who needs these frenemies?
But I do thank Bill Kristol for inspiring "Peak Trump."
Most fun I ever had writing.
