MOTUS links to and highlights a terrific article from a life long Republican voter and war veteran who explains why he no longer considers himself “conservative”:
Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate who seems to have any inclination to act strictly in America’s interest…the first people to condemn him and deny the obvious were conservatives. Somehow, being conservative now means denying the obvious and saying idiotic fantasies like “Islam is the religion of peace,” or “Our war is not with Islam.” Uh, sorry but no it is not, and yes it is. And if getting a president who at least understands that means voting for Trump, then I guess I am not a conservative. MORE
If the definition of “conservatism” means kissing the raised hindquarters of people who want to kill us, have killed us, and will continue to try to kill us no matter what we do, in an attempt to not offend the perpetually offended, then I guess I’m not a conservative either.
There’s a whole lot of hullabaloo in the dextrosphere over Donald Trump’s skipping out on the islamic supremacist infested CPAC, and of course if you don’t have a problem with Trump having better things to do then you are not conservative. Oops, another strike for me!
If you have a problem with foreign invaders coming into this country and receiving preferential treatment at the expense of American citizens and legal immigrants, then you are not only not conservative but you are RAAAAACIST as well (what “race” is invader?). Got it. Strike three, I guess I’m out.
If you’re not mortified by Donald Trump’s tone and don’t think it’s necessarily evil to discard mild manners in the face of non-stop hostility and aggression, whether it’s coming from the right or the left, then you’re not conservative. Ah hell, got me again.
If you’re disgusted by how republicans have cowered and folded at every opportunity rather than stand up against destructive leftism and if you are fed right the hell up with all their FAIL, then you’re not a conservative and neither am I.
Oh well, if that’s the price of thinking that American leadership should put the interests of Americans first, instead of worrying about the opinions of foreigners and those who wish us harm, then I will gladly pay it. Fuckum. They can take their handwringing islamoblowing invadercoddling leftykowtowing brand of conservatism and shove it.
