The American Thinker’s David Prentice has created a series of articles entitled “Trump’s Unintended Consequences” exploring themes like the Deep State Unmasking and the Fake News Industrial Complex (FNIC). This week’s installment surrounds the Republican Party and how it has revealed itself precisely because of Trump’s election.
Prentice nails the sentiments of the normal GOP voter and has also called it right on the money with how the GOP in DC disdainfully views its own constituents. Because of the Swamp RINOs’ eternal devotion to the Left and their chokehold on the government apparatus, the GOP is absolutely devoid of any type of understanding of its base. They cannot figure out that their own constituency hates them, much less the reasons for the hatred.
The author attempts to provide them with a clue to the mystery.
The Republican Party once was the party of conservatives. It still is the only place any conservative can be elected in today’s political world. So far. Unfortunately, the party of Reagan has disappeared. Trump did not make them disappear, but his improbable run, and win, has revealed who the party really is.
And it ain’t pretty.
It’s been apparent for a while that they are the stupid party. But I never thought they were this stupid.
It’s been apparent for a long time they had Stockholm Syndrome. Captured by the left, they have been cowed into being spineless mushes afraid to be called names. But I never thought it was this bad.
It’s been apparent for a while this is a party interested in taking a back seat, as long as they get money, perks, and some kind of fame. But I never thought it was this corrupt.
Something has gone very wrong since Trump ascended. And it’s not him. He’s virtually the only one trying to do the right things. At this point, it’s clear we have a combination of sick factions in the GOP, and none of them give a damn about the party’s voters, none of them give a damn about the principles they claim to have stood for in the past years, and none of them have a clue about what they are doing.
Exactly right. Everything we’ve been saying for the past few years and now that we’ve given the RINOs carte blanche access to just about anything they’ve ever asked for and couldn’t have, they turn around and reward their voters by spitting in their face, calling them bigots and racists, and abandoning all their promises with the excuse that they cannot work with Trump; the very person who got them exactly what they wanted.
And it makes absolutely no sense UNLESS YOU REALIZE THAT THEY ARE EXACTLY LIKE THE LEFT AND ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES. All their words are empty and all their gestures Kabuki theater.
What has this party done since Trump saved their bacon, keeping them in the majority, saving them from becoming a worthless second fiddle to a corrupt Hillary? Nothing. Just nothing. And now worse than nothing. I am not the first to say this, but let’s be clear, the GOP has become a party of spineless wimps and frauds. They have betrayed half of America, betrayed the base that once supported them so well, and also betrayed their country.
They allowed this nonsense of Russia!Russia!Russia! to fester, knowing it was nonsense (and yes, it’s provable that they all knew). None of them stepped up to the plate to tell the left, the media, the public and the world that it was an asinine construct that had no evidence and simply wasn’t true.
Prentice now goes into the reasons why we are so offended. He speaks directly to the heart of the GOP and their leadership.
GOP: You promised us an immediate repeal and replacement of Obamacare, and after nine months of absurdities, you not only failed, but you did nothing to discipline those who made it fail. Paul Ryan is still speaker, McConnell majority leader, the senators who prevented this promise from being enacted were turncoats and received no consequences from their leadership.
Other than ratify some good judges, nothing else has been done by Congress.
The GOP watched the left, through their toady media shills, and their fractured foolishness, take down everything we voted for.
What is a nation who has been lied to by both parties supposed to do? What is the base of the GOP going to do?
I don’t know, but I do know I’ve never seen the center right base so disgusted and angry at its own. GOP: Trust me, the base hasn’t left Trump, but it has left you. It’s not official yet, but the avalanche is about to begin. The anger is going to boil over. Upon you. GOP: you’re not going to like it, but you have no one to blame but yourselves.
With the FNIC losing steam with this Charlottesville story, it’s no wonder that they’ve been cornered into once again grasping at straws for yet another SCANDAL! Once they find another viable storyline, they’ll run with it, never once spending more than a moment’s time to consider whether or not the story has any value, but rather will it generate cash for them.
The GOP, knowing this and also feeling like they cannot betray their loyalties to the Left, will continue to do the wrong thing until the only thing left to do is the right thing. Sounds cryptic, but it’s exactly the truth.
The Swamp RINOs only exist at this moment because we allow them to exist. In the next election, if we capitulate and give them “just one more chance,” they will repay us in kind with a refusal to do what we ask. In essence, that leaves Americans with only one choice.
Vote out these FNIC darlings and vote in those who don’t want a career. Vote in those who are fully in favor of term limits and a desire to make the changes in this country necessary to defeat a destructive force in the Left which sees America as anything but righteous and worthwhile.
