NeverTrumper Biden Booster Baseball Cvck: Gee, This Biden Turns Out to be a Real Authoritarian Tyrant, Kind of Like What We Kept Claiming Trump Was

We told them fifty million times: There is no restraint on Biden (or Hillary before him), as the media and all the bureaucracy of government is behind him.

Trump, on the other hand, is shackled by restraints everywhere. He's almost nothing but restraints. Even if he wanted to be this "authoritarian" you're constantly babbling about, he couldn't be.

On the other hand, Biden -- and Hillary before him -- can be authoritarians. An, as Obama showed, the left is increasingly eager to resort to tyrannical rule as they are frustrated by democracy blocking their dreams of a socialist utopia.

Nonsense, NeverTrump answered. Biden is an Honorable Man with Good Character, and a Moderate Centrist who will Repair Our Frayed Norms. He would never do that.

(They also thought that Hillary Clinton was a Moderate Centrist who would not trespass beyond constitutional or legal norms as well!)

Well, here we are.

We now have a president with no regard for the rule of law or its restraints on his arbitrary power to issue fiats, backed by an entire party & commentariat that views "Whatabout Trump" as an all-purpose get-out-of-law-free card.

Dave Reaboi isn't letting this filthy stupid weakling off easy.

David Reaboi, Late Republic Nonsense @davereaboi

We told you. But revulsion of Trump's aesthetics mattered more.

Baseball Cvck blames his Biden's donning of the Tyrant's Mantle on... Trump!

Of course. Of course.

After Baseball Cvck himself just said that every tyrannical move by Biden is defended by saying "WhataboutTrump" as the all-purpose get-out-of-jail-free card!

Trump absolutely bears responsibility for how we got here, just as Democrats bear responsibility for his election denial - that's how slippery slopes work - and pretending otherwise does no good. Also, c'mon, no adult thinks aesthetics was Trump's only vice.

David Reaboi, Late Republic Nonsense @davereaboi

Trump was always a lagging indicator, a reaction to voters' exasperation over the radicalism of the Left and the refusal of the GOP to deal with key issues. No politician is perfect--and he didn't deal with the insane left with as much ruthlessness as it required.

Dan McLaughlin @baseballcrank

"Due to the other side's misconduct, we shouldn't care what's true or what's legal" is how we got in this mess, & more of it won't get us out

What did Trump do that was illegal?

Election denial?

Dave points out that Hillary Clinton put the entire CIA and NSA and FBI to work for six years in the business of Election Denial, attempting to prove her conspiracy theory that Trump was installed by the Russians.

David Reaboi, Late Republic Nonsense @davereaboi

Also: I stopped caring about "election denial" in 2017-2020, when everyone wasn’t just allowed to do it, but was cost of entry into mainstream spaces.

There is only 1 thing I will not bend on--if there are rules for us, there must be rules for them.


They manufactured a lie about "Russian interference in the election," caused insane investigations and got 1/2 the country to believe their president is literally an enemy foreign agent.

This is far worse for the social cohesion required for "democracy" than anything on J6.

They did this without regard for what kind of *irreparable* harm it would do to social cohesion--and, even worse, many of your past and current colleagues at NRO and in the GOP were completely taken because they despised Trump so much.

And then jump-cut to the same people J6 and hand-wringing and pearl-clutching about Trump's talk about "stolen elections."

We don't care now. Not even a little.

The NeverTrumpers never accept that Hillary Clinton's refusal to admit that she lost, fair and square -- and her subsequent enlistment of the entirety of the leadership of the government intelligence services and law enforcement in what is in fact an attempt at an illegal coup -- is itself "election denial" and something far worse, with far greater constitutional consequences, than anything Trump did.

Did Trump enlist the CIA and FBI into his "insurrection"?

NeverTrump never admits any of this.

And why?

Well, for a simple reason: Because NeverTrump is and remains Russiagate Truthers. They remain committed to the idea that somehow, in some foggy way they can't quite explain, Russiagate is still TRUE.

They are as fanatical on this point as Rachel Maddow.

Dan McLaughlin @baseballcrank

Spoiler: Caesar did not, in fact, save the Republic by crossing the Rubicon.

We're not talking about that, asshole -- we're talking about you finally admitting that the Democrats you supported in fact are more guilty of crimes against the constitution than the man you claimed was so authoritarian in impulse that you were compelled to support the morally and ethically spotless Hillary Clinton and the "moderate and centrist" Joe Biden, who was in fact further to the left of Barack Hussein Obama.

@AuronMacintyre

Conservatives can't acknowledge the political reality around them because it would require them to admit that they failed to conserve the republic.

Indeed.

Hillary Clinton, recently: "You can even have the election stolen from you."

She also said that Trump won't admit that Hillary beat him, "because he knows he didn't win, he knows he's an illegitimate president."

NeverTrump has fuck-all to say about this.

In fact, they cheerleaded for their gal making these outrageous election denialist claims for six years.


And Acosta, 2017: "Why won't you admit the Russians meddled in the election?"

Meanwhile, the "Dainties" -- the prissies who judge everything based on whether or not it offends their very delicate class sensibilities as upwardly mobile suburban liberals -- are now in the grips of full DeSantis Derangement Syndrome, and are making him the New and Worse Trump.

Because he called Anthony Fauci an elf!

That offends their exquisitely fine sense of decorum and faux-aristocratic upbringing!


Two interesting points about this Fake Upper-Crust Sensibility thing:

First, it's fake. This is a competition among weak and inferior men to prove themselves strong and superior. They can't prove themselves strong and superior in actual strength or superiority, so they change the criteria to better fit them, that is, a more feminine sort of competition they could actually beat other men at. Namely, "refinement," taste, and a capacity to be offended and terrified by tiny things like humorous jibes and mice skittering across the kitchen floor.

There are actual objective criteria to determine who is the strongest, the smartest, etc., but it's up for grabs to say who has "the finest taste." So Noah Blum can compete in the Princess and the Pea Olympics and have a very good chance of winning, especially because most actual men would not compete in such a delicate contest.

Second, this is again just a game of showing hatred for the dreaded Lower Orders. David French and Noah Blum and the rest of the Fake Aristo Swells are always straining to discover exciting new Class Distinctions they can adorn themselves with to prove they are not like the raucous and unseemly Working Classes. A feather of delicate sensibilities worn behind the ear, a ribbon of refined taste in Marvel Movie Appreciation dangled over the heart.

Anything to show that the New Nobility is different than and superior to those thick-fingered White N*****s that vote for Trump and think that a nation's borders should be enforced.


Fuck off, fairies. Go knit a doily for your wife's boyfriend to put his drink on.

Oh, and French: Have the lambs stopped screaming, French?

Update: Great point by mallfly.

remember when Biden said that if they were in high school, he'd take Trump out behind the Bleachers and beat the crap out of him? I imagine the likes of French thought that made Biden sound presidential
