Let’s dispense with this growing, nasty ‘rebellion in the Republican Party’ theme.
These people — and we all know who they mean, McCain, Flake, Corker, Bush — are not rebels. They are losers. They are people who are losing even their support back home. And it is not because they were/are staunch Trump supporters.
What does that mean? It says they could not win, but not because they are tied to Trump. In fact, they are dissenting with Trump. That is the whole point in the media calling them rebels, isn’t it? But their anti-Trump, establishment positions are not popular at all with the people or back home, nor is joining the Resistance against Trump.
Yet media point to this as a pending implosion of the Republican Party. No, we always had these incessant RINOS bucking the trends within. That is not new. It’s old.
What is new is that they are blaming their losing position with their constituents on Trump. They are railing against him calling it divisive politics. No, they have been divisive and dismissive of the party before. They have already been at war with the party.
They can’t blame themselves.
And they are not rebels at all if they are leaving and taking their unpopularity with them. Now if they had any support and were demolition experts, they would stay and finish off the party, which is what the media suggests they are doing. No, they are leaving precisely because they have no support and agenda, other than to oppose Trump. That doesn’t seem to be working for them. Rinos and the left want to make this a Rebel Yell.
Oh, that kind of dissent with us and Trump is popular only with progressives. It is opposition and resistance. Sure Leftists would cheer it. So these so-called “rebels” are trading any Republican credentials for progressive, leftist, Democrat ones.
They stand up to make these diatribes against the Republican Party now. They don’t attack or blame the left. In fact, their sole purpose, like McCain’s, seems to be attacking the right – not the left. They just do it more publicly now. Progs love it. It had little effect on conservatives. It does animate and excite the progressive left though.
So now, tell me exactly how they are rebels? They are leaving with their tales between their legs, blaming Trump for their exit. They are undesirables. What effect is it having on the right? Yes, they do call themselves conservatives but are the same elite estabos that have been undermining conservatives. What is being cut is RINO’s lifeblood support.
The last part is that their real problem is not with Trump; it is with the American people. The establishment was the cause of problems for years. They are the source of the stench in the Swamp. Yet we and Trump are somehow to blame for their elitist demise?
They are the same people who may have waffled on a Supreme Court nominee, illegal immigration, or who bit their royal tongues for 8 years Obama was in office politicizing everything. But now, after swearing off reelection campaigns, they claim liberation to speak their minds. They were unchained before. But no such liberation ever took place under Obama. In that case, they could work with him and his cohorts in corruption.
Resistance and opposition was unpopular for 8 years. It was pooh-poohed as divisive and racist. Now it is all the rage. Throwing the bums out was crazy talk. Now it is cooler than cool. In fact, all they want to talk about is how they can throw out the administration. McConnell got slammed for making Obama a one-term president his goal. Now they put up a petition to impeach Trump from the largest donor of the Democrat Party, at 8 months in office. McConnell was being racist and sinister then. Steyer is praised and Dems are using impeachment as a fundraiser.
Yet we have these Republican whiners agreeing with the far left, calling Trump unstable and all kinds of names. They were turned into the new heroes, the strong, principled ones. Weasels. Rebels of the right? We were the resistance before it was popular. These types are exactly why we elected Trump, and why it was necessary. The left must have missed the revolution, but it was last year. They lost.
