Newest NeverTrump Sneer: Antisemitism Is No Reason to Shun Democrats Now, Either

As you're no doubt aware, what passes for wit among the NeverTrumpers is to take a positive attribute or accomplishment of Trump's and sneer it away, with a "But" before it.

The idea being that people who actually support the conservative movement accept the NeverTrumpers' litany of reasons Orangemanbad is bad, but then say "But Gorsuch."

Or "But Kannaugh."

Or "But the economy."

Or "But abortion."

Or "But he fights."

Admitted liberal Tom Nichols now sneers away the Democrats' increasingly strident antisemitism as a new entry in the "But" parade.

Worries about antisemitism, when Jews continue to be the group most frequently targeted for hate crimes and in fact targeted at a quickening pace, largely because of the promotion of antisemitic tropes by people like Ilhan Omar, are now "short-term" worries, The Expert expertly declares.


I could quote this forever:



Kurt actually returned to that sentiment, briefly, in this week's column.

The Fredocons needed someplace to go, the Michael Corleones of conservatism having kicked them out of the family following their betrayal. The Never Trumpers, who have now gathered on deck at whatever sad website The Bulwark is after having gathered on the deck of the recently-sunk Weekly Standard, crave attention. That's why whoever Charlie Sykes is -- he edits The Bulwark and tweets about how conservatives have disappointed him -- decided to send a leftist abortion activist to CPAC as the site’s correspondent so she could give what-for to those icky pro-life people who are trying to stop the Democrat infanticide push. But hey, when some liberal billionaire is bankrolling your Trojan horse conservative outlet, you need to walk a fine line between trying to look enough like a horse to get inside the gates but still be enough like a donkey so your benefactor keeps writing you checks.

Now, the backlash these hacks received from the CPAC fiasco had the salutary effect of reuniting some alienated conservatives. Pretty much everyone in actual conservatism agreed; this was a garbage move by a garbage outfit dedicated to garbage outcomes and their own personal benefit...

Today's Never Trump is a tiny group of greedy misfits whose gravy train got derailed -- they would put it "an elite group of select individuals of discerning taste" -- but we actual conservatives do spend a lot of time on manhandling them. They cite that as evidence of their lasting influence, but it’s actually the result of two other factors. The first is human nature -- people hate traitors. There's a reason civil wars tend to be so much more brutal than other wars. It's the sense of betrayal, and the actions of turncoats like Bill Kristol -- whose tiresome Twitter feed is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish from those of Senator Will Brown Side Piece and Senator Panders with Wolves -- infuriate the very same people he shamelessly hustled for decades.

The other reason is that the Never Trumpers have a media presence utterly out of proportion to their dwindling numbers and influence. Why? Because they say exactly what the leftist media needs them to say. You know when you get a Never Trumper on your MSNBC or CNN show, he’s going to faithfully parrot the party line of Nickleback-channel cliche Joe Scarborough or noted particle physicist Don Lemon....

The Never Trumpers seem to have no answer to the Trump era except to pine for a return to a status quo that we simply won’t return to -- one where the government is run by, and run for, the ruling class. The country must continue to evolve to incorporate Normal Americans' interests, a process Trump began, or it may fall apart.

Update: The Expert isn't even trying anymore:



"But judges and abortion and taxes mumble mumble mumble"

Well played, Expert.

A Living Meme: Tom, you're not just a liberal, you're a very smug, fat liberal.

I know you can't do anything about being liberal or smug, but can you fucking fast a couple of days, maybe?



Update: "DraftRyan2016" is searching through NeverTrumpers' timelines to find mentions of Ilhan Omar -- but keeps coming up empty.

No returns for searching Ilhan Omar's twitter screenname (@IlhanMN) on Tom Nichols' timeline.

Nor in alleged "Republican strategist" "THE Rick Wilson's" TL.

Nor in frightened but excited cuck JV Last's timeline.

Nor in the thrice-married, triple-wived Charlie Sykes'.

Nor in Pierre Omidyar's kept woman Bill Kristol's.
