We are angry at Never Trump because we are angry at ourselves

Sebastian Gorka on Tuesday torched the "post-Reagan era, Bush-flunky fake conservative" elitists.

Gorka wrote, "For decades they planted themselves at publications such as National Review and the Weekly Standard which lost their viability as market products but nevertheless chugged along, read by a smaller and smaller group of believers and fellow-travelers, funded as they were by the same handful of well-meaning but credulous sugar-daddies."



(I am less kind to the donor class. The donors buy and get exactly what they want. But it is his column.)

Gorka wrote, "Then on November 8, 2016, America fired them all.

"When the nation chose Donald Trump, the anti-neoconservative for her 45th president, it sent a politically revolutionary message to the self-anointed coastal elites. In choosing a non-politician who self-identified as conservative but who had absolutely nothing to do with the Establishment GOP, America flipped the bird not only at Hillary and her organized crime cartel on the Left, but it blew a massive raspberry at the pseudo-Right as well."

So we won and celebrated but there is this animus toward the Never Trumpers that we really need to dump. They are not worth thinking about.

Heck, we sank the SS Weekly Standard whose reputation among conservatives became so bad that its owner will publish a weekly conservative magazine under a different name. I suggest the Weekly Dradnats.

But still we talk about them because, face it, we were had.

Nobody likes being played for a sucker.

We bought their shtick. We bought their books. We defended their honor, only to learn later that they had no honor. They were Judas goats leading the lambs to slaughter.

They told us not to mention social issues because you cannot win on social issues. And so abortion became a lost cause for a second generation. Or is it now a third?

Gorka reported that President Trump's election rendered the neocons irrelevant, which has led to much desperation.

Gorka wrote, "Whether it’s attacking Salena Zito for not being a 'real American' (I guess because her name isn’t WASP-y enough), or mocking the appearance of a veteran conservative commentator who just ended chemotherapy, these people who say — and this isn’t a put on, they actually had this on their masthead — that they are 'Conserving Conservatism' have sunk as low as it is possible to go. Or at least that’s what I thought until this week.

"I have no idea who Gabriel Schoenfeld is, beyond the fact that his bio says he worked for Mitt Romney. (As sure ticket into the Never Trumper Club). But the Bulwark was happy to publish a piece in which this person decided he should attack Victor Davis Hanson, the preeminent classicist, strategist, and conservative author of our age. Hanson’s sin? To publish a book called The Case for Trump."

I see where Fox News hired Donna Brazile, and may have fired Judge Jeanine Pirro for calling out anti-Semitism. The rebel network sold out long ago. If I want to watch boobs, I'll watch "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

We were had once. It will not be twice.

  1. There is a reason that jobs, even white collar ones, left for other countries (even to high wage, high union Canada) while the federal government continued its slow march left no matter what political party was in power.

    HW Bush tamped the Reagan flame. Trump is trying to keep it lit and turn it into a conflagration.

    1. Yes; as Fox jumps head-first into the outhouse, it's good to have OAN!

      OAN is available on KlowdTV for $7.99/mo, well worth it (you also get NewsMax, BlazeTV and a lot more channels.)

    1. Well, then, Putin made one hell of a mistake, didn't he?

    3. Those weren't "Americans" who chose Hillary. They were Californians. There's a difference.

      Trump won in the Electoral College by a large margin. So what you are saying is that Putin is this time-traveling evil genius who convinced our founding fathers Jefferson, Madison, Adams, etc., to create this thing called the Electoral College all so that 228 years later Hillary's landslide victory in one mega-state, California, would not result in her becoming president of the entire U.S.A. That's where your Putin thinking is leading you. I'm thinking Putin implanted some of that uranium he bought from your gal Hil into your brain. Or ass. Same thing.

    4. Anon,
      You remind me of my idiot brother-in-law. He tells me at every occasion that Hillary won the popular vote. I tell him that Hillary was playing by the same rule book as Trump. She was trying to win a majority of votes in individual states- just like Trump- in order to reach 270 electors in the electoral college. Take California as an example. I don't think Trump even set foot in California. He knew he would not win the state. Hillary did not need to go to California either. Her winning the state was a forgone conclusion. (Although Hillary did go to California because that is where all her biggest donors were). There are thousands (millions?) of Republicans in California that do not even bother to vote. They know their votes are pointless when it comes to national and statewide offices. If Trump was trying to win the popular vote, he would have campaigned there and possibly won there as well. Take a civics course at your local college.

    5. Hillary won the popular vote? But the Electoral College was established just so the winner of the popular vote wasn't automatically the winner. Wasn't it?
      And the Dems were for the EC before they were against it. Back in the dim dark days of 2016.

      NB I'm Australian, so I stand to be corrected on my analysis here.

    1. Just the entertainment side, not Fox news. Disney has to sell Fox' broadcast stations, but Fox is not interested in buying them. I read this on Ace I think.

  8. It really irritates me that Fox News hired Donna Brazile. It's like a big middle finger.
    I saw her for a couple of moments on Bret Baier tonight. Had to turn the sound off. She went off about being a Christian. An abortion-lover who lies and cheats.
    At least with Fox being left out of the Democrat debates she won't be able to give one of the candidates the questions.
    I just hope she doesn't show up on The Five when Juan needs a break. I'd hate having to stop watching.

    1. You apparently have never played this game.

      The irritation you experience is the catalyst to induce greater vigor in your determnation to not permit these uniparty hog scums acquiring anything resembling total control over your every breathing moment.

      Thus, this move is designed to stimulate those who are predisposed to apathy, sloth, and plain old don't give a fuck into realizing just how painful that uniparty fist up their asses can get. Not just a finger or two, but the entire fist, arm and shoulder of the uniparty hogs.

      If you seek a binky in you quest for daily updates on reality, you are not the MAGA you think you are.
