Conservative poster boy, scape goat

There was an old Helen Reddy song “You and me against the world.”

You and me against the world,
Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world,
When all the others turn their backs and walk away,
You can count on me to stay.

Remember when the circus came to town
And you were frightened by the clown,
Wasn’t it nice to be around someone that you knew,
Someone who was big and strong and looking out for

You and me against the world, …/

 
That’s certainly what it feels like now. Trump rolled out his campaign and it seemed to take on an awareness. However, what it really showed is how far we have to go, and how much establishment really is against (opposed)  to conservatives. You can say what you want how conservative Trump really is or not but he took on the face of conservatism and drew the fire — right or wrong

It only proved what an agenda they have against conservatives or only reminded you, either way. As if all anyone had to do was mention illegals and crimes to light everyone on the left on fire.  All the advocacy groups sneered — media, liberals (is there really any difference), establishment, even some corporate concerns. The outrage was swift and fierce. Much of those real problems are directly a result of Obama’s policies, but who cared about that? They wanted Trump to pay for such statements. Contracts were shredded, endorsements held hostage, deals lost, boycotts and all the rest ensued. Media balked.

Sometimes our memories will have to get us through.

Case in point this race. As much as things change, politically and otherwise, one realizes how much they remain the same. This is as much an us vs. them paradigm as it is a disagreement on issues. It’s an institutional one, the establishment verses the people or voters. It really is that basic. They’ll have us believe that it is only on this issue or that one, but it’s a far bigger problem. And that is what they want us to do, get bogged down saying we are wrong or “out of touch” on a particular position. The default is to support the establishment, across the board, on all these issues. That will eliminate problems.

George Will recently has been making the case all by himself on what the establishment thinks of Trump. They want him gone. But they want all that noisy support of his gone too. Will called himself and his fellow cohorts the adults in the room. Anti-establishment, dissenter types are welcome in the Party, he says, but that it needs to be on their terms. As far as I’m concerned, Will can go back to ABC now.

Beyond comparing Trump to George Wallace and saying that he does not belong near the nuclear football, and his supporters are Birchers and nuts, he also let fly:

Mediaite:

Will also compared Trump to primal scream therapy, a fad from the ’60s in which patients just yelled to make themselves feel better. “He’s a one-trick pony. ‘I’m rich, everybody who disagrees with me is stupid, and all our problems are simple. Put me in power.’”

“One trick pony [pot meet kettle] and everyone who disagrees with me is stupid, and all the problems are simple,” sounds like the elitist establishment GOP. Yet we are the ones called angry?? How has that establishment GOP been working for you? Not. One trick pony: ‘you must support McCain or doomsday’, “you must elect Romney, he’s the only one…’. Soon to be you must support Jeb Bush and the dynasty or lose.

Sounds like a lot of someones need to have a serious Pogo moment. Aka: “We have met the enemy and they are ours”. This is from an article in the Canada Free Press
(H/T to Pepp for the article).

There is an astounding amount of groupthink among the Washington set – the journalists, pundits, lobbyists, consultants, politicians, and dealmakers. These types of folks – the George Wills and the Steve Schmidts and the Karl Roves and the rest – don’t like new ideas. They don’t want anybody rocking the boat. As a result, anyone who threatens to do so, who seek to inject fresh perspectives into the ossified mold of Washington political society, will be viewed with fear and mistrust, and will be demonized and ostracized. This is especially the case when the ideas being injected happen to be popular with the masses (such as ending illegal immigration) but unpopular with the “elites.”

But then it went further than just ridiculing and attacking Trump, they had to go straight at his supporters, or anyone unwilling to join the attack against him. This is the typical establishment style and M/O. It’s herding the cattle into one chute, as opposed to a renegade chute that may stray from the ranch.

So tell me again, how it’s “you and me against the world.” This is a concept Christian conservatives are very familiar with. They understand, at least, that we are in the world but not of the world. We are to be salt and light in the world. A very different thing than being owned by the world or, in this case, by the GOP establishment elites.

    Will is a first class Northeast elitist snob asshole. He told us exactly what the establishment elite think about all of us. We sorta knew it already but I’m glad he came out of the closet and said it official. Thank you George.

    Will needs to purchase a mirror. He is part of the problem The government belongs to us, the great unwashed, not to the elites.

    Trump’s message resonates because he is not of the political class that has been playing us for decades.

    Btw, Will’s wife works for the Walker campaign.

    Real good post Bull. I’m with you on sending Will back to ABC. Actually, isn’t he due a stint on MSNBC?

    The establishment has established the rules and they don’t want those rules changed. They don’t even let that pesky constitution get in their way. To try and differentiate the GOP elite from the Alinsky elite is futile. They all belong to the same party.

    The Alinsky House and Senate passed Ovimitcare for all us, but gave themselves an opt out and they’ve taken it. Has the GOP House done anything to change this? Has Mitchtheswitch even brought it up? Their rules and our rules differ, but the elites of both parties do not.

    Trump is pissing off elites in both parties and good for him!

      Dave, don’t get me started on the rules for radicals be they Dems or Repubs. I suppose in view of how radical Marxists are Repubs aren’t in the same class of uber-radicalism, but nevertheless an anathema to our desires. And they are digging in their heels after we just granted them a majority. (and that wasn’t a cake walk) Right back to old tricks. As you say, Constitution got the backseat, and we have a ghost driver from hell.

      Why Trey Gowdy seems to be the only diligent one on the octopus Hillary is baffling?(hard to expect much from a single-handed effort) Mitch is turning into the great lost hope at this point. So yeah, Trump has a lot to take aim at.

        Bull, I agree the Repukes aren’t the same as the Alinsky radicals, but isn’t there a quote that a rose by any other name….

        Mitch is personally (IMO) destroying any chance of Repukes gaining seats in congress and probably going to cost us several in 2016. He had a great opportunity to illustrate to voters why more Repukes are needed in congress, but he hasn’t done shit with the exception of showing there’s not much difference between himself and Reid.

        Gowdy is a good guy, but does appear to be on and island all by himself. This establishment agreement bullshit between the Alinskys and the Repukes will ruin our nation.

          A rose, indeed. You know, I actually wish they were more radical like in opposing the left’s agenda, We certainly can’t get there diplomatically with reason. But doing nothing to oppose it and then giving Barry fast track was, what’s the word?….oh Stupid.

          We ‘re actually giving him stuff. What morons. But up until the Trump no one was listening to us. We were just stupid, according to them. I’m going to write a book called The Art of Treason.(or have they already done that?)
