There was an unimpressive commentary at a website I frequent from an “actual conservative in the Trump era” that referred to another unimpressive commentary. I won’t link to the first because the owner seems like a nice guy and lets me comment there. I wrote a rant (below the fold) that I decided not to send, but that’s neither here nor there.
I saw a tweet referring to an older, but very good article about how Trump “fights”. The lead-in to the article made me think of the two posts above and just how unimpressive the anti-Trump brigade is:
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”
But the tweet was even better:
Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.
[This is a rant I wrote, kinda liked, but didn't post as explained above. It's an early version that was and will be edited until I like it better. Or perhaps removed.]
…you know what, eff this. I tire of this incessant BS in which so-called “actual conservatives” indirectly deride those of us apparently not-actual conservatives because we voted for a Republican as opposed to against a Democrat.
Soon enough, the NeverTrumpers and EffTrumpers and SureWishItWasSomeoneElseThanTrumpers will get their way. Again.
In the best case, Democrats will take over the Congress this fall, impeach Trump and send him frog-marched off to jail for something; in the worst case, Trump’ll continue to do what he’s doing and the anti-Trump brigade’ll be able to enjoy 6 years of what may prove to be
both the best and most conservative president in my lifetime, possibly ever; but without anyone to follow it up because of all their work to sabotage his support.
And then they can get back to normal. Being real nice and polite and well-spoken and quite adamant about not conserving anything – especially all the things that Trump has done and will do. Get back to standing by, hands on hips, looking disapprovingly while government
grows. The armed forces deteriorate. All the regulations removed are returned and new ones are thought up. And ObamaCare revived – except for Congress. Openly spying on political enemies – aw, heck, just put ‘em all in jail. Reducing our sovereignty towards a world government. Increasing taxes. Slowing down the economy. Opening them borders up
good and wide (can any immigrant really considered to be illegal?). Subjecting the 1st and 2nd amendments to international approval (or not). Getting that internet under control (EU Article 13). Sending our young adults off to war against other countries to die for nothing
(culling the herd of non-leftists). Letting the EPA take over private property and do its own polluting. Making sure that no one learns anything in our schools while taking ever increasing tax dollars. And finally letting the mainstream media decide what is allowed to be said and what is not. So as to make sure those 8 million or so blue collar workers who voted for Obama then Trump can go back to voting for Dems (leftists) because who the eff cares anymore: the country’s going to hell anyway, might as well get the money and run. Maybe take up drugs and make a good corpse.
Sorry. I rant. Probably got a couple “Germans at Pearl Harbor” moments in there too. I’ll enjoy the next few months to next few years and hope for the best, but expect the worst.
