Admittedly, this is one-sided, and unfairly.
Coulter is saying that it’s Cruz backers who are acting most like the left, particularly in their over-the-top defense of Michelle Fields who claimed she was almost pulled down to the ground. She calls it the dramatic and intentional pussification of politics in order to ratf*ck the opposition at all costs.
But I’m going to jump in and be fair. There are a lot of Trump people who simply do not care what ridiculous things Trump says or does, they are all-in for him, much like the left is for their candidates. You get the feeling Trump could say he became a believer in climate change and he’s going to go full bore with Green Energy in his first 100 days and many of his followers would find a way to spin it like it’s a good thing.
It’s an interesting conversation, but Cruz people will have a problem with it. I don’t post it for that reason. I think lessons can be learned by the Trump backers as well.
My hope is that somehow before the convention both sides will coalesce around the idea that we need to defeat Hillary or Bernie, and that is not going to happen when Trump and Cruz voters both make the ridiculous claim that the other guy is ushering in Hillary.
Back either candidate when the time comes and that fracturing and finger pointing won’t be an issue.
The blame game is going to be intense. The party will most likely not survive a November loss.
