We reported this this morning. But it’s worth repeating and examining more closely.
Max Boot, a guy who still insists he’s a conservative, hates Donald Trump.
Donald Trump, as most of these conservative posers claim, isn’t conservative.
But let’s take a look at Max Boot’s beliefs –
In an opinion piece for Foreign Policy in September 2017, Max Boot outlines his views thusly: “I am socially liberal: I am pro-LGBTQ rights, pro-abortion rights, pro-immigration. I am fiscally conservative: I think we need to reduce the deficit and get entitlement spending under control. I am pro-environment: I think that climate change is a major threat that we need to address. I am pro-free trade: I think we should be concluding new trade treaties rather than pulling out of old ones. I am strong on defense: I think we need to beef up our military to cope with multiple enemies. And I am very much in favor of America acting as a world leader: I believe it is in our own self-interest to promote and defend freedom and free markets as we have been doing in one form or another since at least 1898.”
In December 2017, also in Foreign Policy, Boot wrote that recent events—particularly since the 2016 election of Donald Trump as president—had caused him to rethink some of his previous views concerning the existence of white privilege and male privilege. “In the last few years, in particular, it has become impossible for me to deny the reality of discrimination, harassment, even violence that people of color and women continue to experience in modern-day America from a power structure that remains for the most part in the hands of straight, white males. People like me, in other words. Whether I realize it or not, I have benefitted from my skin color and my gender—and those of a different gender or sexuality or skin color have suffered because of it.”
– in favor of special rights for LGBTQ
-global warming proponent
– pro-immigration (This has to be clarified. is he saying he is pro-ILLEGAL- immigration?)
-believes in white privilege
-believes that women are discriminated against by the patriarchy.
If Trump isn’t a conservative, what the hell are his views that upset this moron?
You see, folks, NEVERTRUMP is a dangerous bunch for various reasons.
Some are secret progressives.
Some have embarrassing team sports attitudes. Trump beat Cruz so these childish dopes will hold it against Trump no matter how he governs.
Some are just dumb. Well, most.
