Speaker for the butthurt

Matt Walsh rage-quits the Republican Party because Donald Trump has won the nomination:
Goodbye, Republican Party.

I mean that in more ways than one. I’m leaving. You’re dying. I could stick around while you gasp your last pitiful breaths, but what would be the point? I’m certainly more pro-life than you ever were, but when it comes to political parties that have been overtaken by some kind of unintelligible, socially liberal populism, I say pull the plug.

Good riddance. Your wounds are self-inflicted anyway. Clearly you have no desire to live. So goodbye. I am abandoning you on your deathbed, and I feel no shame in it....

The Republican Party is host to many millions of people who fell prostrate before a flamboyant charlatan, despite, or perhaps even because of, his compulsive dishonesty, his moral cowardice, his cruelty and pettiness, his blatant and unapologetic ignorance and disinterest in the most important issues facing our country, his liberalism and so on. As Trump said himself, he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and these people would still follow him.

That’s why I’m leaving. It’s also why you’re dying. It’s not my fault, and it’s not even Trump’s fault. Trump is just a parasite who took advantage of a weakened immune system. He’s the violent case of dysentery that finally kills the frail man who was already sick with a thousand other exotic diseases. The untrained eye may say the man died because he was vomiting blood, but in truth he was vomiting blood because he was dying.

The Republican Party, we should remember, is made up of Republicans. And most of the Republicans are voters, not politicians. So even if nobody else will say it, I must make it clear that I’m leaving because of these voters. Whatever else can be said of citizens who want a man like Trump to run the country, it cannot be said that they’re anything resembling conservative. Nor can it be said that we have anything much in common.

Yesterday, a Republican in Indiana told the media she’s voting for Trump because he’s a “different kind of liar.” The day before, Cruz attempted to have a reasoned dialogue with a couple of Trump supporters who responded to all of the senator’s arguments by shouting slogans and pumping their fists. Trump fans perform even less admirably in cyberspace, where an impassioned collection of anti-Semites and white nationalists work tirelessly to confirm every negative and cartoonish stereotype liberals have ever concocted about Republicans.

I’m not saying they’re all like this, but I’m done answering for the antics and inanities of the Trump squad. They’re not in my party. Or, I suppose they’d respond, I’m not in theirs. And they’re right.
Remind Matt of this every single time he claims to be a Republican in the future. Rub it in Matt's face every single time he claims to speak for Republicans. Remind Matt that he quit, that he very publicly left the party, when he claims to be its true voice.

Because, if there is one thing we have learned about gammas like Matt, it is that they always try to come back and pretend nothing happened.

The only thing that is more pathetic than Matt's gamma rage is the losers in his comments encouraging him to self-immolate.

Hmmm, almost sounds like the men who founded this country, of whom we are their posterity.

So... what happens now? Do the remaining primaries still go ahead with just one name on the ballot?

Blogger James Dixon May 05, 2016 6:00 AM  

> Good riddance.

That's fine Matt. The feeling is mutual. We don't need you to tell us what is and is not "conservative" or who to vote for.

Blogger James Dixon May 05, 2016 6:04 AM  

> Do the remaining primaries still go ahead with just one name on the ballot?

The ballots are already set. Everything continues exactly as it was. You can still vote for whoever you want. It's just that Trump is the only one still running a campaign. Given his current win rate, he was going to get the 1237 anyway.

"So even if nobody else will say it, I must make it clear that I’m leaving because of these voters."

Phew! We can let the rest of the voters know they don't have to leave now. The whitewashed Matt has sacrificed himself for them. How christ like.

Blogger Shimshon May 05, 2016 6:08 AM  

I have a friend in the US who absolutely can't stomach Trump, but who does see a bigger picture and considers it more important to deplatform the Democratic nominee (which will likely be Hillary) and will vote for him (rather than her, as some are threatening to do, or even not voting out of spite; not voting out of principle is a different matter and entirely understandable). I give him credit, because there are so many cucks like Matt Walsh out there who prefer losing with grace rather than vanquishing evil. I'm trying to make headway in convincing him that times have changed and the time for the genteel politics of yesteryear (which is really a myth; politics has always been dirty, even when not so visible to the public) is over, if the goal is to push back against the left.

Blogger Shimshon May 05, 2016 6:11 AM  

@2 Steve, in previous campaigns, where the nominee assumed presumptive status far earlier, the elections were still held, and people voted. If you planned to vote, by all means still do so. There's power in numbers. It reflects high enthusiasm for Trump.

Anonymous Napoleon 12pdr May 05, 2016 6:13 AM  

Damn, I detest that sort of self-righteous twit. We saw the same sort of tantrum-throwing in 2010 when Tea Party candidates won the primaries.

Blogger James Dixon May 05, 2016 6:15 AM  

Of course Matt is very much a Johnny-come-lately. I left the Republican party over 20 years ago because their definition of conservative included Richard Nixon, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.

And yet Matt has not a word to say about them, but has to leave over Trump, who is espousing policies that are more conservative than any of theirs.

Thanks Shimshon.

Sensible.

There'll always be folks who are aggreived that their hobby horses and preferred candidates aren't given the prominence they'd like. But politics is a zero-sum game.

In a two-party system, much as you might personally dislike both options, them's your only real choices.

Going third party or not voting might give a brief thrill of moral self-righteousness - as with Matty Walsh's tiny tantrum - but it just makes it more likely the worst candidate will win.

So Americans have a choice:

Trump, the America First candidate who provokes lefties into frothy spasms of progressive outrage.

Or Clinton, the globalist, feminist SJW candidate.

Four years of SJW's being triggered into what the actual fuck???!!? is a lot more entertaining than four years of a croaking old shrew lezzing up the White House.

For that reason, I expect Trump to win.

It's a shame because his positions are solid on most issues. I used to read his articles semi-regularly until Trump announced his run and he went into gamma rage mode. There are plenty of people who don't like Trump who I respect and Matt quickly became not one of them. As soon as he refused to debate Vox I knew he was a fraud. He's just another in a long line of pundits I know longer read because they put their pride before their integrity.

A taxonomy of NeverTrumpers would be helpful.

CONSERVATIVE MEDIA WHORES - Trump is to these guys what asteroids were to the dinosaurs. He doesn't swim in the ecosystem of big donors -> think tanks -> lobbyists -> press shills, so is an existential threat.

THE NO TRUE LIBERTARIANS - Well-meaning chaps who are upset that the electorate doesn't share their enthusiasm for a Rothbardian analysis of traffic lights.

THE RELIGIOUS WRONG - Ned Flandersey folks who are TO-ed that Trump isn't running for President of Jesus.

THE ARETHRAS - Still living in the hope they can convince lefties that Democrats are The Real Racists.

GAMMA BUTT INVADEES - Just hate, hate, hate Trump because he reminds them of every cocky, athletic rich kid who got invited to parties and dated the hot girls at school. You can tell Gamma Butt Invadees by their fedoratastic white knighting on behalf of all the m'ladies Trump supposedly offends. Also, they're fat.

Everything you need to know about these people is inherent in the fact that they found "Mitt" Romney, an obvious loser and a parody of a man, acceptable and Trump beyond the pale.

Anonymous Eric the Red May 05, 2016 7:03 AM  

I fail to understand these people's rage against Trump and his supporters. For at least the last five administrations, so-called Conservatives have promised much and delivered absolutely nothing. But now they shout and stamp their tiny feet as if they have been mortally offended. None of them will ever realize that all this time they have been in a war, and the side they purport to represent has been losing badly. These people have actually been shilling for the enemy, while pretending they're ideologically pure. They want to fight useless battles overseas, but refuse to dirty their hands with the existential war here at home. Their treason has put a stamp of approval on the downward spiral of this society caused by leftists. They are enablers, but pretend they are noble souls.

Nationalism is not conservative? Protecting a nation's primary culture is not conservative? Promoting local production of economic goods with fair trade is not conservative? It is not conservative to think that immigrants should be selectively invited guests, not culturally invading hordes? These unelected gatekeepers are simply insane.

This is all just another form of madness, similar to that already displayed by the left. What were once correctly diagnosed as psychological illnesses have today each morphed into separate political constituencies, with all the chaos that entails. Freedom now means unfettered insanity, including forcing the sane to embrace it. Psychologists/psychiatrists should be so mortified that they commit seppuku to atone for their sins.

Those like Matt Walsh are proof that the insanity of the left is a communicable disease. If you aren't constantly alert, your immune system will succumb, at which point there is no cure except for some kind of miraculous spontaneous remission.

Blogger Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus May 05, 2016 7:11 AM  

You know what Matt's really mad about?

The fact that he is irrelevant. Utterly irrelevant.

He threw his tantrums. He flung his poo. He screeched and squalled and pitched his fits.

And nobody who mattered gave a rip.

The fuck is wrong with people like Matt Walsh?

Was this guy not around in 2008 for the pathetic, awful traitor John McCain or in 2012 for the weak, borderline-leftist Romney? None of THOSE particularly bothered him, but Trump does?

Trump is, in many ways, a blank slate. Never held public office or passed any legislation. It's all words and speculation at this point, which is why I find extreme reactions in either direction so laughable.

We just want to roll the dice with him because he is saying the right things about immigration, terrorism, and guns. And which we haven't heard in a long time.

Blogger Phillip George May 05, 2016 7:17 AM  

the nature of the cuckservative beast is you can virtue signal your way through the confusion.

something that came to me 'right here' is
Christianity owns the legal system

Christianity owns conservation. Both historically and now.

But, universal human 'rights' has confused the hell out of commentators like virtue signalling Matt. He sees someone 'soft' on his pet issues and says 'they aren't him'. Well quite right. Matt, even you aren't what you want to be. Hence the convulsions resembling dry retching.

This election is not fought on the conservative - liberal axis. It is being fought on the nationalist - globalist axis. That is why people like Walsh are losing their minds. They can't understand what's going on because they are not even on the same playing field.

They are like today's military, trying to fight Vietnam over and over again.

So, I take it that this is Matt's indirect way of calling off his asked-for debate with you?

Anonymous RedJack May 05, 2016 7:29 AM  

The rage against Trump is very interesting. Trump has few policies that have not been held by GOP candidates in the past. We were told to vote for McCain and Romney because it was "the will of the party members!" and now we are told to NOT vote for Trump because "The party voters are stupid, racist, idiots who should be hanged!"

So it isn't Trump's stated policies, but something else.

Blogger Unknown May 05, 2016 7:30 AM

His original blog dates back to a week after the 2012 election but this blog post criticises McCain:

"Purge the neo-cons from your midst. Nobody wants to hear it anymore. There’s no audience for it. Nobody’s buying it."

The first candidate since Coolidge to argue for the twin pillars of the right - immigration restriction and isolationism - is a liberal? And of course to signal that is the ultimate subhuman cuck he signals his concerns for how the left will perceive him. Guys like this make me hope America's problems are solved violently.

Burning their house down, whether the Republican Party or the USA is just their supreme acts of self sacrificial purging.

Trump is politically unique in that he actually acknowledges there is an enemy and then actively confronts it. He is not afraid. It's an unwelcome wake-up call for those like Matt Walsh who have been dreaming all this time, but now see they've not only done nothing to resist the existential threat, they've actually been aiding the enemy. My conclusion is that self-realization of their cowardice is such agony that their only reaction is to blame the messenger and run from the light.

Too bad for them, I hope they rot in the outer darkness.

Cruz attempted to (as he always does) to lecture people. The crowds refused to recognize Cruz's authority over them, which stumped Cruz. The protest quickly turned into a comedy sketch, with Cruz as the joke.

Cruz demonstrated that he has zero rhetorical skills. He can lecture the choir, but has no ability whatsoever to deal with people who disagree with him.

It was a pitiful demonstration by Cruz.

This would be a great time for Trump to purge the Republican party. He should be making the rounds right now inviting people to leave or kiss the ring, publically, and he should create a list.

Reagan acquiesced to amnesty. The person who really campaigned for and passed amnesty was his vice president George HW Bush.

A vice president who was foisted upon Reagan by the GOP Establishment in return for their support.

Cruz was a brilliant debater in college and in front of Courts. Which works perfectly well when you are a nerdish, bookish, +1SD intellectual. You think everyone else is below you, you game the rules expertly to gain a slight advantage, and then you pound that home. It also helps if you are working in shallow waters like Texas or another conservative friendly location.

But in the real world no one gives a shit about the format, the tiny rules. It's life and death by sound bites.

Besides that, he gave us asset forfeiture, he was never able to actually shrink the size of the government, and he changed his mind on getting rid of registration for the draft. He was a great man, but had as many failures as any other man.

In comparison, Nixon was not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination (wage/price controls and the normalization of relations with China), but he did end our ill-begotten adventures in SE Asia.

No President is going to be perfect.

It's just amazing the level of delusion that these republican cucks operate on. Did anyone actually watch the republican debates? It is clear that Trump surged ahead because of his views on trade and immigration. He was the only candidate to even moderately address the most important issue facing the country as a whole.

And this cuck Walsh can do is worry about appearing respectable in front of liberals?

The "liberals" that they want respect from so badly hate republicans so much that they are willing to import millions of third-world political and economic ringers for the sole purpose of triangulating against them. These liberals are your enemies, Matt, and if you don't learn to hate them as much as they hate you, then you will always be their victim.

As long as we all understand Matt is not racissss.

Give people enough time to talk and they eventually get to the point they want to make. He's quitting because he thinks people will think he's racist.

Ypu, and when you look at who has won as a Republican (or Democrat) in the recent past, it's typically people in that ideal range. GW Bush was likely average, Clinon was likely +1SD - +2SD. Reagan was likely +1SD at most.

I'm fairly certain that Al Gore, for example, was in the +2SD range (or higher). And he had the same lecturing, nagging, puffy faced, disgusting attitude that Ted Cruz has.

Reagan's three strategic goals were to stop inflation, push back the USSR, and to lower the taxes. He succeeded on those counts in varying degrees but in history's hindsight, his goals themselves were not America's existential problem.

Hopefully the difference between Reagan and Trump will be that the latter does have the right strategic objectives.

tz,
I'm just noting that they did pass a repeal.

Budget deals are always messy. Not excusing the bloated/misguided budget. There's a lot of horse-trading that goes on in the House to get non-budget items passed. For too many years, the federal government never passed a budget and funded actions through Continuing Resolutions. I do have a measure of sympathy for some members of Congress who understand the significant difference between a passed/signed budget and CRs and who make deals that look awful in public, but need to be made to move other parts of the government forward.

Regardless, they showed, with a willing president, they could pass a repeal.

I take that as an encouraging sign and one that should be trumpeted from the mountains as motivation for GOP to maintain/gain seats in both houses and elect Trump. He may replace it with his own cockamamie scheme, but that is also okay, because it would demonstrate 1) major legislation can be repealed without the country falling apart and 2) one-size-fits-all government legislation does not "settle the issue."

The communists, socialists, and leftists generally show admirable party discipline, because they understand that, as a rule, subverting Western civilization is a process that requires many false steps, doubling back, setbacks, detours, and compromises.

So the Dems will, without blinking, overnight, go from being avid and public supporters, say, of Hitler or the KKK, but then the next day be avowed enemies of Hitler (the moment he breaks with Stalin) and avowed enemies of the KKK (who will now retroactively always have had been Republicans, somehow). Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.

A mob cannot beat an organized legion. A conservative mob cannot beat a coherent Democrat machine.

Is there is single Bernie voter, even one, who quit the Dem party because Hillary will win the nomination? Is there even one Bernie voter who would not drive a hundred miles in a hailstorm and crawl over broken glass to cast his ballot for Hillary?

The answer is, no, none, not one.

The Bernie voter might think that the Zweihander of Bernie is a better blade than the crooked scimitar of Hillary wherewith to savage and plunder their deadly foes, the American people, but doubt not that savaging the plundering their foes is the sole purpose and delight.

They will close ranks.

Why won't we?

I have obeyed party discipline my whole life, and held my nose, and pulled the lever one time after another after another for bland and hopeless candidates, Dole, McCain, Romney.

If Cruz had won my party's nomination, I would have pulled the lever for him with great enthusiasm. He is the only principles conservative candidate I have seen in politics in my lifetime.

Likewise, now the Trump wins the nomination, the rivalry between Republican candidates must cease, and all Republicans worthy of the name must come to the aid of their party.

We must close ranks.

That is the deal. There is no point in having a party, no point in counting votes, otherwise.

If you only obey the rule or follow the nominee if you win the vote, and disobey when your side loses, then you should never have voted in the first place.

Because it is fraud otherwise. You shoot craps, but only collect the winnings if you win? If you lose, you keep your wager in your wallet? Hardly honest.

By voting at all, you agree to the deal.

Imagine if everyone, or even a large segment of the people, acting this way at the general election: imagine if the Dem all publicly announced treason and rebellion if the GOP candidate becomes president, or likewise imagine the GOP announcing no laws passed by Dem majorities in state or federal legislatures will be obeyed. That is the end of the Republic.

I once had the highest possible respect for Mr. Walsh. This is simply appalling.

Mr. Walsh's selfishness is the end of the Republican party, at least insofar as one man can do.

Thanks to him, the Dems win. Hail, horrors! Hail, socialism! Hail, endless Obamatopia! Political Correctness replaces human speech. Prepare yourself for the boot trampling a human face forever.

I don't care if you like the deal, I don't care if you hate the deal. If you voted in the primary, that is the same as if you put your hand on the Bible and swore upon your own damnation that you would support the deal however the majority decided.

The majority has spoken.

A lot of people need to leave the GOP before it can transform into party which reflects the will of the electorate. No young people will be drawn to it as long as it's peopled by those who are too stupid to see through a charlatan like Cruz. Pat Buchanan had it correct when he said:

Whatever happens at Cleveland, the returns from the primaries look like the passing of the old order, the death rattle of an establishment fighting for its life, and being laughed at and mocked as it goes down.

As in 1964 and 1980, a new Republican Party is taking shape.

Defections are to be expected, and not altogether unwelcome.

The grittiness of the Indiana primary confused the cucks. They might concede it had something to do with Carrier. But their shame won't let them consider that it was also payback for the Religious Freedom Fiasco. Not only did we suffer our 15 minutes of Space Raptor butt hate from the Double-Plus-Ungood-Thought-Crime Squads, but we got schooled good and hard on our place as peons to leftist oligarchs and virtue signaling feudal lords. And our republican leaders rolled over and let it happen. Thanks to the sniveling cowardice of our cuckservative governor, we now enjoy LESS religious freedom than we started with. That primary was payback. Don’t doubt it for a minute.

Consider this exchange-which-will-not-be --

In response to a couple of the all-too-common anti-semites (**) there, I posted this
never again @7 "Have you noticed that most Jews are against Trump?"

tz @10 "70% of US Jews voted for Obama in 2012."

Which is to say, a bunch of leftists who hate their grandparents' religion as much as they hate mine voted for Obama.

Why are you people such morons? Why do you people "reason" just like leftists do, and they try to pretend that there is some substantive difference between leftists and yourselves?

And within minutes, Ol' VD himself responded thusly:
Which is to say, a bunch of leftists who hate their grandparents' religion as much as they hate mine voted for Obama.

Who said anything about religion? Who cares why they acted as they did, the point is that they did it.

Why are you people such morons? Why do you people "reason" just like leftists do, and they try to pretend that there is some substantive difference between leftists and yourselves?

How is citing incontrovertible and easily confirmed facts reasoning "just like leftists do"? Do you really think leftists are known for correctly citing the facts?

Who are you trying to fool, and why?
Everything about this response is intellectually dishonest. But then, what else can one expect of a hypocrite such as 'Vox Day'?

Look, you God-damned (***) leftist hypocrite, go back to Mexico! (****)


(*) But then, that's true of everyone; it's just extra annoying coming from him because:
- it's clear that he *can* reason
- he likes to boast about his vast intellect and his commitment to rigorous reasoning.

(**) And believe me, I don't use that term lightly. In my opinion, the only thing worse than an anti-semite is someone who "refutes" any criticism of a Jew, or of Jewish persons, or as is more commonly the case, of a leftist/atheist whose grandparents were Jews, by shrieking about "anti-semitism".

(***) I also don't make that evaluation lightly.

(****) Yes, I know that he has already left/repudiated the USA. That was rhetoric, I expect he gets the point, even if he'll never acknowledge it, and sees the humor: how he must chuckle to himself as an "Aztec" and a "descendant of a Mexican revolutionary" to be the intellectual (such as it is) leader of a group of low-rent whites who see "da Jooos" behind every tree.

"Democracy is stupid. I'd much rather live under a (reasonably) decent Catholic monarch."

However, I am a gentleman, as is evidenced by my right to bear arms.

If you wish for an unequal form of government to rule us both, there are only three options: you outrank me; our ranks are equal; I outrank you.

If you claim superiority over me, I defy you to press your claim, and will take up arms and kill you or die rather than bow.

If you claim equality, you repudiate your monarchic views.

That leaves only your claiming inferiority to me.

But inferior in what way? Political inferiority only: you are volunteering to have no say in political matters touching the public weal.

You are agreeing, in effect, to leave those matters to the gently born, your betters.

This places you in a paradox, for by your rules, then, by your rules, I am your better.

And not your better in all things, but only in political matters, such as what is to be the form of government for the kingdom.

Knuckle your brow, commoner, and remove your cap to me, and do not voice your opinion on matters of politics. That includes your opinion of monarchy.

If you actually believe in political inequality, by your own rules, you are not allowed to say so, not in public, not to a Virginian.

Or would you rather be equal with me? I, for one, would welcome that.

Now you might think a Catholic King might at least preserve us from the madness of, let us say, allowing Bruce Jenner into the lady's room. It is a strong argument. But the sad experience of history shows that royal families along with their aristocratic supporters can go mad just as democrat mobs can. The numbers do not really matter.

The Catholic kingdoms of Spain and Italy were not preserved from fascism when the modern age drove them mad.

Rome was not a republic, but it was bigger and stronger and richer than it had been as a republic. Were Roman citizens of the Empire more free than they had been under their Republic? Perhaps, in the same sense that Americans were more free under Reconstruction than before.

I'll just point out that a weak monarch is a smaller threat than a strong republic or a strong democracy.

Pro comment right there. Trump and Sanders on the nationalist side, all the others on the globalist side (with Cruz trying to steal some on the nationalist side).

Incidentally, the case can be made that Sanders is actually the Nazi (nationalist socialist) here.

One additional key element: high disgust threshold.

A friend of mine is all 4 on that list but his low disgust threshold turned him into a fine nationalist.

I'd say a "selective disgust threshold" or a "warped disgust threshold". Because he definitely has a low disgust threshold. It's simply drastically out of whack.

today I hear Trump is interested in Kasich for VP.

That's ASKING for a bullet.


@65 WinstonWebb
Precisely. Offing Trump and getting Kasich (who's indistinguishable from Hillary on all issues that matter) would mean we're right back to the globalist neoliberal status quo. I hope Trump was just doing that to get a few NeverTrumpers to come around.

They said vote for us and we'll repeal Obamacare.

They did pass a repeal. It was vetoed.


@77 Anchorman
They would've known that Obama would've vetoed a repeal of Obamacare. If a president who would've signed it had been in power, they wouldn't have tried at all.

The main mistake Reagan made was letting the Establishment inside his administration to undermine his policies and backstab him. Probably an unavoidable mistake for him. Doubtful Trump will be able to avoid making some kind of deal with the bastards.

@102 Dexter
Difference between now and then is that while Reagan was around, the average person took it for granted that GOPe people like Poppy Bush were on the same page as Reagan. Now, they see the GOPe as the enemy. And there are plenty of Republicans who are identifiably non-GOPe or weak-GOPe that Trump can stock his Cabinet with and pick as a running mate.

Granted. No argument from me on that point. Republics are riskier, because you are placing faith in the whole body of the people, who, historically speaking, do not have a great track record.

I think a monarchy is a perfectly cromulent form of government for non-Christians and non-Virginians and other peoples who yearn for chains.

And in any case, if the majority does not 'get' the civilized and gentlemanly notion of agreeing to abide by the will of the majority even when you lose the vote, then there is no majority because there will be no vote.

Of course, on the other hand, it also requires restraint on the part of the majority not to press their power to the point where dissent and then rebellion becomes the more rational option. To break up our republic, the socialists need only suborn one side, for the same reason a homewrecker need only seduce one spouse to cause a divorce.

In a different camp politically perhaps, but we sail in the same barque theologically speaking. Glad to be aboard since 1998!

Yes, John, it is. A non-voluntary union is an empire. And the south never rejoined voluntarily. The successes or failures of that empire have no bearing on the nature of its being.

All conservatives ever do is lose, lose, lose. You'd think they'd be used to it by now.

Sounds like he's a natural conservative in terms of the five moral spheres:

In a large Web survey, Haidt found that liberals put a lopsided moral weight on harm and fairness while playing down group loyalty, authority and purity. Conservatives instead place a moderately high weight on all five.

"but I’m done answering for the antics and inanities of the Trump squad. They’re not in my party. Or, I suppose they’d respond, I’m not in theirs. And they’re right."

Matt, [i]I feel your pain.[/i]

No wait, that's schadenfreude. My mistake.

Walsh is just another neoconservative jackal. He and his ilk have been working stealthily for more than 30 years to subvert the conservative movement and hijack the Republican Party. Now this gang of collectivist thugs is trying to destroy Donald Trump in their desperate effort to hang on to power. These people are not now nor have they ever been "conservatives" in the sense most Americans use the term. For that matter, most Americans are not "conservatives" either. Conservatives, by definition, want to keep things as they are. Most Americans, as Trump's huge following proves, are not at all interested in keeping the status quo. They are small government traditionalists who believe in God, truth, and individual liberty and who want to preserve the future for their children and grandchildren. Far from wanting to "conserve" the current order, Americans want to bring it down and restore peace, prosperity, tradition, individual responsibility and freedom. For their part, the neoconservatives are the collectivist enemies of everything Trump supporters want to achieve. They believe in big government, moral relativism, and perpetual war as a way to secure power. They pose an existential threat to peace and to what little remains of American liberty. They are absolutely evil and their treachery cannot be allowed to prevail.

What an arse.

Those liberals whose approval he hankers after? They're still not going to sleep with him.

Playing devil's advocate, if we can reliably take things as they are named to be an accurate description, would the Democratic People's Republic of Korea be Republic and belong to the Democratic People?


indeed, people do quite often lie about what they are and what they truly intend. that's why i quoted Lenin. so let's ignore that prior to German National Socialism, NatSoc was not even a concept.

define what you mean by National Socialism. then explain how you intend to exclude Hitler from that class.


as to the Norks, they nominally have a universal vote amongst the proletariat, ie - absolute democracy. the problem being that if you don't vote in the approved proletarian manner, you get re-classed as bourgeois and typically wind up dead in short order.

this is a common feature of Marxist International Communism. the Manifesto does call for the violent overthrow and absolute destruction of the non-working classes, after all.

to say nothing of the foreign nations which we regularly invade and overthrow if they don't lick our boots to our satisfaction.

the Kingdom of Hawai'i merely being one of the more flagrant examples.

Wilson's criminal instigation of our involvement in WW1 ( the Germans were right, the Lusitania was carrying weapons and munitions. thus, flagrantly violating "neutrality" and a legitimate war target ) being another.

> He's just another in a long line of pundits I know longer read because they put their pride before their integrity.

I used to be a pretty solid "establishment conservative" type of guy -- the kind most readers here would call a cuck. I've been drifting into the alt-right orbit for a few years now, though, and I can't decide if it's because I'm changing or the "mainstream right" is changing.

A little of both, I suspect. Getting married probably had a lot to do with it, in my case. When you have to finally man up and be a responsible adult, it puts things in a different perspective.
