Donald Trump’s statements following Charlottesville
should have seemed perfectly sensible to any normal person who isn’t part of an
anti-Trump cult. The only way I can make
sense of the histrionic hysterics of the mob’s reaction is by conceiving of post-World
War II Americanism as a cultish meta-ideology that binds both Democrats and Republicans.
Even having as low an opinion of establishment Republicans and conservatives as I do, I honestly didn’t foresee them lining up one after the other – from Marco Rubio to Paul Ryan to Mitt Romney to the editors of National Review – to attack Trump specifically for attacking leftists.
Trump’s irreligious attacks on the alt-left could literally end his presidency. And if he is forced out, it will be absolutely 100% due to the treachery of cuckolded Republicans. They refuse to speak one ill word against Antifa. These are anarcho-communists – the worst of the worst. What they advocate is the antithesis of everything Republicans claim to stand for. Antifa have viciously assaulted not just Nazis…but scores of Americans in MAGA hats who put Republicans in power.
By refusing to name the #altleft threat to our lives & liberty, grandstanding "conservatives" have gone from irrelevant to treacherous.— Libertarian Realist (@GetRealist) August 15, 2017
