Peggy Noonan’s Warped Idea of Love of Country

In a recent Wall Street Journal column, Peggy Noonan “cuts the baby in half” so to speak. On one hand, she admits Donald Trump is not fit to be President. On the other, possibly fearing “Trumpers” wrath, she fawns:

Peggy NoonanI start with the obvious. I never meet Americans who love America more than Trump people do. They really love it—its history, what it means in the world, what it’s done. It has not always been a fully thought-through love but it’s generally fully felt, and at a time when not everybody bothers to feel such allegiance and gratitude it is admirable.

Ms. Noonan attempts to straddle the line between Right-Wing talking points and coddling the most dangerous groups in America. It’s insulting. These people call themselves Patriots, they’re not. They’re violent Nationalists, the antithesis of loving America.

Love of country isn’t flag patches on every piece of clothing you own or giant flags on your pickup truck.

Love of country isn’t calling for the Vice President of the United States to be hanged.

Love of country isn’t putting your fellow citizens at risk over a minor inconvenience.

Love of country isn’t threatening elected representatives and their families with death.

Love of country isn’t blind hatred of Americans who don’t look or think like you.

“Trumpers” have always longed for a country that never was and fantasized about a country that hopefully never will be. They continue to follow Trump blindly as he takes their money and laughs all the way to the bank. They refuse to entertain the idea that they’ve been suckered even as the pile of evidence grows higher.

For this reason, the right’s “love of country” die-hards will continue to support him likely claiming fraud against their own party should he lose the primary. By electing Trump and continuing “the big lie” Republicans have increased the number of  “angry white guys” Lindsey Graham longed for. The genie’s out of the bottle, there’s no going back.

Kellyanne Conway Confuses Being a Bitch With Being Powerful

Kellyanne ConwayFinally, we understand how Kellyanne Conway can work for Donald Trump: She’s a raging bitch with a sense of importance as distorted as her boss’s. How they fit both of their egos in the Oval Office at the same time, is a mystery to me.

Conway recently had a minion call Caitlin Yilek, a reporter at the Washington Examiner, during which Kellyanne got on the phone and went into a shrewish rant which you can read here. It included this little gem (my emphasis):

Let me tell you something, from a powerful woman. Don’t pull the crap where you’re trying to undercut another woman based on who she’s married to. He gets his power through me, if you haven’t noticed. Not the other way around.

Ms. CharmWOW, somebody’s a bit full of herself. Most truly powerful people don’t have to point it out. The emphasized part in that quote is particularly hypocritical, considering Conway attempted to tie Bill Clinton’s scandal to Hillary in the 2016 campaign. From the Atlantic (emphasis mine):

This is the same Kellyanne Conway who played a key role in the Trump campaign’s strategy for addressing accusations of sexual misconduct against its candidate—and that was to raise as a defense the sexual misconduct of their opponent’s husband. Here, for example, is Conway speaking with Chris Matthews after Trump’s press conference with Bill Clinton accusers. Here she is again with Megyn Kelly—insisting that women who claimed to have been victimized by Bill Clinton “deserved to be heard” as part of the case against Hillary Clinton. On the attack, Conway embraces views akin to the antiquated legal doctrine of coverture, wherein a woman’s legal existence is entirely subsumed into her husband’s. On the defensive, she’s suddenly Gloria Steinem.

Conway’s disparaging of her husband isn’t exactly new however, she once told the Washington Post:

“Nobody knows who I am because of my husband, people know of my husband because of me.”

Alrighty then! Kellyanne’s husband has been in a Twitter feudgeorge conway with Donald Trump for some time now, as George Conway actually has principles. Kellyanne, having sold her soul, takes Trump’s side, claiming her husband’s tweets are:

… disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows . . .

You know the vows: “… for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, even if you work for an ASS.

Conway originally supported Ted Cruz during which time she actually told the truth about her current boss. Courtesy of Media Matters (my emphasis):

“… he says he’s for the little guy, but he’s actually built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy and he’s a lot of little guys through eminent domain, or through not paying contractors after you’ve built something. The little guys have suffered. [CNN, CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, 2/10/16]

“… it’s one thing to hurl personal insults at somebody’s wife, and that cost Mr. Trump dearly in Wisconsin and dearly among women voters all across this country. … it is quite another to accuse Ted Cruz himself and professionals who have been at this long as you have, Ed, practically, of committing a felony and breaking a law. We could just brush it off, but it shows you the danger of just saying things that aren’t true and getting people to believe it and getting 20,000 people at a rally today to just lap it up as if it’s true. [CNN, Erin Burnett Outfront, 4/6/16]

HA HA HA HA HA…

What Kellyanne Conway doesn’t get is that her husband George will be the one that comes out of this stain on our history with his honor intact. Kellyanne is a fraud and a sellout, who tossed the sliver of integrity she may have had into the raging dumpster fire that is the Trump Administration. She will become as big a laughing stock in U.S. history as her boss. Of course, she’ll be a “powerful” laughing stock, so there’s that.

Hey George, if I may make one suggestion: Make the bitch carry her own damn coat from now on.

Black is White, Up is Down, and Patriots are “Snitches” in GOP Land

Geraldo Rivera, Peabody-Award-winning-ABC-journalist-turned-Fox-News-Hack had this to say about the Trump Whistleblower:  

“So it’s going to be the president of the United States in a conversation that was intercepted by a rotten snitch, I’d love to wap him, but that’s another story.”

(“Wap” is slang for to beat or strike, according to Mediaite.)

“Imagine this poor president, his whole tenure in office has been marked by snitches, and rats, and backstabbers, and it’s amazing how he functions at all.

“Snitches and rats”… that’s what the Right Wing’s phony patriots are calling real patriots these days. The-guy-currently-residing-in-the-white-house has allegedly attempted to blackmail a foreign country into aiding his re-election bid, by dangling previously promised American aid like a carrot, and the Rabid Right is A-OK with that. THINK ABOUT THAT.

(Not for nothin’, but I could probably squash Geraldo like a bug with minimal effort.)
