Right Wing Hypocrites Rally Around Trump
Liberals, Progressives, and Independents have always known that Conservatives’ constant yammering about their “values” was so much hot air. The 2016 primaries for their Party’s Presidential nominee has now removed all doubt for anyone with an IQ over two digits. The staunch “God and Country” set has chosen to throw both under the bus to support a racist, bigoted, bloviating ignoramus for the leader of the free world. For example:
Phyllis Schlafly, the Right Wing’s so-called “leader of the pro-family movement” has endorsed thrice married, serial adulterer Donald Trump for President, and by extension, his soft porn posing wife for First Lady. How did Trump win her over; why his promise to get rid of Mexicans and Muslims, of course.
Lindsey Graham once said the choice between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump was, “…like being shot or poisoned, what does it really matter?” He even exhibited a nano-second of backbone when he declared on May 6th that he wouldn’t vote for GOP nominee Donald Trump. By May 23rd however, he was falling in line, calling on party donors to support Trump.
Rick Perry, Mr. Prayer Rally, once referred to Donald Trump as a “cancer on conservatism“, and lamented that Trump was: “A man too arrogant, too self-absorbed, to seek God’s forgiveness.” When Perry dropped out of the 2016 race he said of Trump: “The conservative movement has always been about principles… Our nominee should embody those principles.”
But, oh how quickly those “principles” are jettisoned when the words “Vice President” are dangled in front of you. Perry told CNN’s Dana Bash:
Then there’s Paul Ryan, perhaps the biggest political hypocrite of them all. Ryan has been beating around the endorsement bush for months. In response to Trump’s failure to denounce David Duke’s endorsement in March, Ryan said
Go ahead, laugh; I’ll wait. Trump of course, responded ever-so-Presidentially by threatening Ryan
At the beginning of May, Ryan claimed
he was “just not ready” to support Trump the nominee. That led to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus setting up a meeting
to convince them to make nice with each other. It worked, and in typical Conservative fashion, Ryan flushed what few principles he had down the Trump toilet. In an op-ed for Wisconsin’s Janesville Gazette, Ryan endorsed Trump
Many so-called “Religious Leaders” are backing Trump as well:
Dallas mega-church Pastor Robert Jeffress, who once declared
“every true, born-again follower of Christ ought to embrace a Christian over a non-Christian
”, now says
in support of Trump:
“Every Christian has the right to his own opinion about a presidential candidate, but no Christian has the right to impose his preference as a litmus test for someone else’s Christianity or spirituality.”
Damn right. That litmus test is reserved for Gays, Muslims, Women, Immigrants, and Black Presidents.
David Lane, leader of American Renewal
, supports Trump
. In a possible attempt to out-crazy his fellow hypocrites, Lane suggests thrice married, serial adulterer Newt Gingrich, join his thrice married serial adulterer Presidential pick Donald Trump on the ticket. Of course, Gingrich would jump at the chance to be relevant again; but I’m sure he’s carefully considering the idea.
By the way, Lane also believes:
“… Donald Trump can be one of the top four presidents in American history.”
Here’s a look at some other “Christian” Conservatives throwing their religion under the bus in pursuit of political power:
, of Behold the Man Ministries prophesied that Trump shall be God’s “trumpet to the American people
.” (Christian Post, August 2015)
Franklin Graham: “He’s shaking up the Republican Party and the political process overall. And it needs shaking up.”
: “… If establishment GOP leaders want to blame anyone for Trump’s rise, they should start with a good look in the mirror… they took evangelical voters for granted. They felt confident that evangelicals would blindly vote for a traditional-values candidate
Christian voters won’t be bullied into voting for Christian candidates, so take that Jesus!
Let’s be honest here, Christian Conservatives have been offered a smorgasbord of Evangelical candidates in past elections: Bachmann, Santorum, Huckabee to name a few, but they don’t vote for them. Truth is, Christianity and “values” are not nearly as important to Conservatives as political power and the desire to shove their unwanted policies down Americans’ throats.
Choosing Donald Trump as their nominee proves they have no values at all.
