The Trumpslide is inevitable

Even the cuckiest NeverTrump cucks are coming in from the cold:
This week in 2016, I declared I would be “Never Trump.” A friend suggested I use a hashtag that had started circulating on Twitter, i.e #NeverTrump. The piece exploded and pushed me into a whirlwind of coverage. Despite lots of pressure, protestors literally on my front porch, and harassment directed towards my family, I did not vote for Donald Trump in 2016. I voted third party.

Some of my concerns about President Trump remain. I still struggle on the character issue and I understand Christian friends who would rather sit it out than get involved. But I also recognize that we cannot have the Trump Administration policies without President Trump and there is much to like…

…In 2016, we knew who the Democrats were and were not sure of who Donald Trump was. Now we know both and I prefer this President to the alternative.
Which raises the question, why does anyone still pay any attention to Erick Erickson or any of these cuckservatives?

Voting third party is essentially virtue-signaling while tossing your ballot into a fire place.

It’s bad enough that they could not support Trump for what he was campaigning on, but if they could not support Trump for no other reason than to keep Hillary out of office, then there’s no reason to listen to them at all. HRC as POTUS would have been the end of the West.

In 2016, the only thing voting third party signaled, was a person's willingness to stand aside and allow evil to have its way. At the very least a sin of omission.

In 2020, I will vote for President Trump. Whether he 'builds the wall' and 'drains the swamp' or not. Barring a better AND viable alternative, to do less is simply casting a vote for evil.

Erickson is a fwash; who knows what the hell he'll really do when it comes time to pull the voting lever.

Democrats are now clearly the anti-white party. If you're white and a Democrat, you believe in suicide; if you're not white and a Democrat, you believe in genocide. For Trump to win in 2020, enough non-Democrats have to feel this in their gut to overcome Democrat corruption in voting and their newly christened voters from the immigrant hordes. Leftists will pull every dirty trick in the book to defeat Trump; he might yet win, but it will take intervention from God.

When it was going to be Jeb! or Foam Boy vs. Hillary, voting at all was purest virtue signalling.

Trump vs. Crooked Hillary was good vs. evil, and the prospect of actually voting for good rather than against evil dragged people to the polls who hadn't voted in decades. That was the new path to victory that neither McStain nor Mittens could travel, because they were evil.

> Voting third party is essentially virtue-signaling while tossing your ballot into a fire place.

If, in your opinion, neither major candidate is worth supporting and you vote for one who you think is, it's not virtue signaling. If you loudly proclaim the matter to all and sundry, it may be.

I had voted third party every election but one since Bush the Elder (I held my nose and voted for Dole. It was a mistake). Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate I had voted for in 20 years. There was no chance I was going to vote for Bush the Lesser, McCain, or Romney.

> but if they could not support Trump for no other reason than to keep Hillary out of office

That was the paramount matter, yes. Hillary is evil incarnate. I could not in good faith take any action that would help her get the presidency. Trump was not Hillary. That was enough.

> In 2020, I will vote for President Trump.

Agreed.

> If the ballot came down to HRC vs. Cthulhu, I'd still vote against Hillary.

Absolutely. It's a matter of a general diffuse evil versus a concentrated directed evil.

I am so sick of the 'character issues' canard. These people would find issues with Jesus Christ himself if he were to come back and run for office (but but - look at what he did in that temple!!)

You don't vote for someone because of their 'character' you vote for them because of their ability to get the job done. These people are why the 'conservative party' never accomplished much of anything, because they were too worried about that evil people might say bad things about them.

losers lose.

It's easy to forget now just how much worse it could be. A bipartisan immigration amnesty. At least three more (((wise Latina))) types on the Court by now, since RBG was waiting to resign under HRC. A proxy war or two with Russia, if not a full one. Expanded funding and power for abortionists. Increased entanglement in globalist agreements instead of pulling back from some. A major gun grab after the first shooting (which they'd ensure) instead of some futzing over accessories. Just for starters.

Political parties count the votes and adjust their policies accordingly. On an individual level this Erick Erickson is an example of it. Think he would move from Never Trump if the Trumpster were looking like a loser, or had lost the election? Not a chance.

I can handle a non Trump supporter changing his mind. But the Never Trump people? Forget about it. Liars or fools.

Blogger Damelon Brinn February 12, 2019 10:06 AM  

The problem losers like Erickson have is that they violated their own standards to oppose Trump. Yes, in early 2016, there were valid reasons to be concerned about where Trump stood on issues. But with a Bush or McCain or any other liberal Republican, their answer was always, "Yeah, he's not a conservative, but we still have to vote for him. We just have to get him to make promises on the issues we care about, like abortion and guns, so we can try to hold him to those when he gets in office."

But when Trump came along, all that went out the window. He made all the promises and then some, but they weren't hearing it. Their excuse was that he's lied in the past so you couldn't trust him, but they've all lied. The Ericksons never claimed to require that level of trust before; it was the political pressure of promises to a strong voting block that was supposed to keep the winner honest.

So it's not just that they were wrong. It's that they spent years telling us we had to hold our noses and vote for GOP candidates we didn't trust and couldn't stand, and then wouldn't do the same the first time a candidate rubbed *them* the wrong way. It showed they were posturing all along.

I still struggle on the character issue and I understand Christian friends who would rather sit it out than get involved.

Abject submission to the Overton Window has created a Republican political caste that is nothing short of a chorus of castrati trilling out their inoffensive tunes.

The Overton Window handed the press a veto on any able man on the Right. If the press had to choose between an Alpha and a Delta they always went with the guy they figured would be the most harmless.

Yeah, they still hated the guy they picked, but since they knew they couldn't avoid having an opposition, they could at least filter out the effective men.

Of all the good things the president has done, I think the best was in shattering the Overton Window and reputation of the press with it.

Even the NeverTrumpers can not help but lift a cynical eyebrow at any hit piece the press puts out from now on.

IF the cuck is contrite and humble and seems to express a sincere attitude of repentance, we should forgive them and accept them as prodigal sons and brothers who see the light and want to do what's right.

BUT, if they remain arrogant and full of themselves and self righteous and act like they are still all that and then some, then, to hell with them.

If there is a Trumpslide in 2020, it will not be because of the NeverTrumpers, or the Evangelicals, or the Conservatives. None of them have anyplace to go.

Any Trumpslide is going to be in the political middle...the moderates and independents, who normally cast the deciding vote in any American election. That is what gave Trump the margin of victory in 2016 and that is what he must have in 2020 as well. And that simple fact is why he is not going to pitch to this base the next two years...he needs to win the political middle in order to win.

If he thought Trump was about to fail, he would be doubling down on that.

Which is why the state of the union 82% approval rating among independents is terrifying the left.

But the moderates want the wall too. They don't want a halt to all immigration they way we do, but they want it controlled.

> I still don't really trust him. He's pushing hard for Trump to sign the dismal joke of a negotiation they came up with.

We'll see if he does or not. He's already said it's not enough and he get the rest of the money elsewhere if he does. But Lindsay and Mitch blew it big time on these negotiations and they know it. Neither Trump nor his supporters will ever trust them on things like this again.

Same; I’m an hour out, and from what I gather, nobody who used to listen to him does anymore because he whines too much.

Vox, what is your take on the Congressional “deal” being presented to the GE?

Blogger sammibandit February 12, 2019 8:53 PM  

Dumb question. Am a Canuck. What is GE? That term keeps coming up and I cant read it from context clues. General Electorate?

God Emperor. I gather it's a reference to a character in a game.

Warhammer40K. The immortal God Emperoe. There are a lot of memes about the GE.

Thanks, fellas. It's good to remind ourselves of our mythology. Aside but I'm assuming there's lots of Great Meme War vets here?

I need to sperg a little bit here on the origin of the God Emperor meme.

God Emperor of Dune was published in 1981. In 1982, Warhammer 40K was invented as a way to sell lead figures. The Warhammer G.E. almost certainly was a reference to the G.E. in Herbert's writings.

A homage, possibly. But the two have little in common.

Blogger sammibandit February 12, 2019 10:56 PM  

K, silly follow up. Isn't God Emperor a bit redundant? Or is it more like God King, someone divinely appointed for the role? I thought the divine appointment was a built in feature of Emperor title. Maybe I'm overthinking this.

Blogger Ominous Cowherd February 12, 2019 11:35 PM  

Sammi, definitely overthinking.

Primus, danke sehr.

No, it's a compound role. God AND Emperor.

Are the Democrats Bent on Suicide? ... By Patrick J. Buchanan

Pat thinks the Dems are handing Trump a victory. Good essay.

Hope you're right this time, Vox (as opposed to the midterms). Here deep in blue territory the best I can do is just wanting to believe.

@78 "Which is why the state of the union 82% approval rating among independents is terrifying the left."

Wasn't that among people who watched it? Most people here where I live react to the voice and countenance of the GE as a vampire does to a crucifix, so I doubt they checked it out.

Ahh. Kind of cool how Trump head canon became canon.

Well, they'd look pretty silly if they asked people who didn't watch the speech for their opinion of the speech. I'd guess that "independents who watched the SOTU" includes a lot of people who think of themselves as very non-partisan, including those who hate both major parties. Getting a strong positive response from them is surprising.
