Never Trumper? This off-brand Australian import worked for Jesse f*cking Helms.

I don't know much, but I know a Trumper when I see one and I'm looking at one right now.

farking moron thinks the actual Reich being setup is scarier than the imaginary socialist utopia The Left* is heralding.

/* - "The Left" as cooked up by the Nazis she is "reluctantly" supporting

Is better, not scarier. fark it, you got what I meant

Conservatives are full of shiat and have an endless supply of excuses for why racism is great, or why it's ok that Trump pardons war criminals, or why we should take money from the majority and give it to the rich, etc, etc....  This woman just has her own list of excuses.

'I never considered voting for Trump in 2016. I may be forced to vote for him this year.'

No darling, you were always a Trump supporter... it's just getting harder and harder for you to freely admit that without having to apply olympic medal winning political gymnastics to justify your dumbfarkery.

And no one's buying it. Maybe the people reading The New Yorker, but who the fark cares about them?

Right, but the left wants to also provide those things for black people, and that's where Trumpers and other nazis draw the line.

You follow up that last quote by writing, "But they do not represent the mainstream of the Republican Party or guide the choices of the vast mass of Republican members of Congress." Can you explain this a little bit more? I was slightly confused, because Trump is actually the President. And so it feels like maybe that does represent the mainstream of the Party, since he is the nominee and extremely popular and the most powerful and important Republican.

It's a reasonable question that you ask. And all I can tell you is that when I look at the United States Senate, when I look at the United States House, when I look at the people I know who are Republican-and I've been a conservative and I've been in Washington for many decades now-that does not represent who they are. Are there people who find that every utterance, no matter how abhorrent I may think it is, is golden to their ears? You bet. There are people within the Republican Party who believe that.

She pretty much let everyone reading know that she's full of shiat at that point. Trump IS the Republican Party and every last motherfarking Republican on Capitol Hill kisses his tangerine ass. There are Trump supporters gleefully calling us black people n[redacted]s, and she's defending it.

fark her, fark the horse she rode in on, and fark anyone else who defends this shiat.

He was elected in 2016 and is expected to have an unfair chance in 2020.

It is safe to say that 100% of Republicans have and will vote for him.
 
2020-09-20 10:20:26 PM  
Danielle Pletka, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute...

There it is.

Lady, you were never a Never Trumper. You just wanted Trump to STFU and do what your people tell him, like Bush the Lesser. Besides, what are you afraid of? People might get more healthcare?

Speaking of Never Trumpers, I haven't seen a single Lincoln Project ad all weekend. Hmmm...

was a moderate

The version of Biden she liked was in her eyes a moderate. Trump, since before he was even elected was far from moderate and as President he's gotten farther from moderate.

So her logic is she can't vote for Biden because of what he might do but she can vote for Trump despite the things she admits he has done?

If Issac Chotiner asks you to do an interview, how do you say yes? Because I have yet to see a single interview where he doesn't show the person he is talking to is in fact a total clown who can't concede they have farked up royally somewhere down the line to get to where they are now.

And the whole interview is pointing out her career in politics led her to working for some very loathsome individuals who behaved similarly to Trump but she claims that she was working for them in a different capacity to not be involved in their (very public, unapologetic) disgusting behavior.

I got to about the third question and decided there was no point in reading anymore. People can try to break down why people vote for Trump. Ultimately, they do so because they're stupid, moronic, bigoted garbage or people ok with those who are stupid, moronic, bigots. That's all there is to it. They are all morally and intellectually bankrupt trash, and the only difference between them is that some are honest about it. and the rest have justifications that only vary in the degree of how pathetic and dumb those are.

That's a lot of "never Trumpers" fear right now. They've drunk enough Kool-aid to convince themselves that Marxism boogeyman is a real possibility.
 
2020-09-20 10:28:44 PM  
Who was nominated is irrelevant, you mean?

Yes. I think that that choice was irrelevant, because I don't think that those voters are the people who are steering the direction of the Party.


The Democratic primary voters, the most stalwart and enthusiastic members of the Democratic Party, are not the people steering the direction of the party.

Did she do this interview sober?

You take that back! I love trashy science fiction. Yes, the premise was terrible. But, I've seen (read) worse. And weirder.

/ Check out Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson. Just listen to the sample on Audible. In the first 5 minutes, a dude gets killed and has his soul attached to a puppet. And that's not even scratching the surface. I found it because I listened to Ralph Lister narrate the Ark Royal series and thought that he did a good job. So, I took a chance.

"Well golly I don't want to be associated with my own views and ideals!   That would just be unseemly."    fark off cenobite.

Yo in contrast I can openly say I hope for the best for everyone and I put my money where my mouth is as a result.  That's right I want the evils of another millennia of human civilization where everyone gets a chance, can take advantage of our forward progress in human health and knowledge, and gets a living wage.   It's so GRIMDARK.
