Yesterday I posted a Right Scoop link that was uncharacteristic of me. I didn’t editorialize the post, simply titling it NO COMMENT. There are anti-Trump sites that I refuse to “call-out” simply because I like and admire them. Moonbattery comes to mind. I continue to link and support them even if our current state of mind is not in sync, confident that it will be once again, so there is no rush to irreconcilable animosity on my part.
But there was a tone in SooperMexican’s Right Scoop post that needed to be addressed. Jan Brewer was being attacked because during a debate she reminded a panel of pundits what the issue of this presidential election is largely about – Globalism versus Nationalism- by interjecting, “America. America.”
Brewer supports Trump, therefore Brewer must be destroyed, even if it means employing the same sort of sneering and eye-rolling the left does when the right expresses the simple short message- America. Suddenly, the message of putting America and Americans first is mockworthy:
Ken Cuccinnelli, who is awesome, give(s) a look of bewildered amusement while Brewer yells and screeches incoherently. It’s like she’s writing all-caps tweets in order to win an argument. This is a central feature in Trump University grad student logic – if you can’t win an argument because reason isn’t on your side, decrease the length of your sentences and increase the volume of your yelling, and every yahoo in the audience will applaud loudly.
Right before Brewer says (not screeches) “America, America,” she says, “we better start supporting the constitution, the rule of law and the Bill of Rights.”
The reason for attacking Brewer is obvious, she supports Trump. In a strained effort to find something, anything, to hammer her with, Sooper made a poor choice, using Brewer’s nationalistic pride and unabashed jingoism. When he characterized it as something that would appeal to yahoos I was shocked.
The capper was when Sooper wrote, [She] “then took a shot at Hillary as they closed out the show,” as if taking a shot at Hillary is a bad thing.
It pained me to make that post, but I just feel that Sooper is getting a bit sloppy and not thinking some of these bash posts through. And, as I’ve said all along, there is no need to go to war with sites I admire because I have full confidence that when the reality of a Hillary presidency starts to sink in Trump will be recognized as the reasonable and viable alternative that he is.
Today, Scoop wrote this:
I know a lot of you hate Trump and I’m no fan either. He ran a despicable primary with terrible lies about his opponents and he says a lot of really stupid stuff. Between his constant dribble about being the smartest and winning, despite him knowing little about conservative issues while claiming to be a conservative, he just sounds like a buffoon most of the time.
But after watching Hillary celebrate the abortion decision as a ‘right’ and seeing her and Socialist Elizabeth Warren on stage together (as a potential VP choice no doubt), I think I might be just willing to take my chances on the lesser of two evils, considering that seeing Hillary and Warren as potential President and Vice President just hurts my soul:
For many this slight concession won’t be “good enough.” You’d be wrong. This is plenty good enough for me.
If the battle cry changes from #NeverTrump to #WhatTheHellAreWeThinkingNotVotingForTrumpIfItMeansAHillaryPresidency?, I’m pleased, particularly after the sweaty Erick Erickson wrote just last night, To Stop Hillary We Must Stop Trump.
That’s what it boils down to…
