The pearl-clutching coming from Never Trump “conservatives” has gotten so bad, from now on, we should just call them the Well-I-Never-Trumpers.
Yesterday, a group of House Republicans decided to descend on the super-secret Star Chamber Shampeachment. And I have to say, it gave me a happy. One of the biggest complaints most Republican voters have about Republicans in Congress is that they lack the backbone to stand up to the vile, despicable shenanigans of the venal Democrats.
Naturally everyone in the news media clutched their pearls and bemoaned this brilliant move as a “political stunt” and (hang on to your hats) a “danger to our national security.” But none were more upset at the lack of “decorum” from these House Republicans than the Well-I-Never-Trumpers.
And nobody typified the Well-I-Never-Trumpers quite like some prat writer from the Washington Examiner. He actually titled his piece “These GOP House members just made themselves the antifa of Capitol Hill.”
Is he kidding?
Did Matt Gaetz beat the living crap out of Adam Schiff or throw bottles of urine at people?
Did these guys smash windows and set fire to trash cans?
“But, but, but, THEY ORDERED PIZZA just like Antifa would!!!!!”
What a complete drama queen.
In his huffy column he showed far more disgust with the Republicans who stood up against the super-secret Star Chamber Shampeachment than he did for Adam Schiff for conducting this super-secret Star Chamber Shampeachment.
Through his breathless “how dare they!” diatribe, this Well-I-Never-Trumper referred to these Republicans as “tawdry” and “akin to drugged up college ruffians ‘sitting in.’”
Said the huffy fishwife:
Their behavior was not only puerile, but infantile.
FYI, “puerile” is synonymous with “infantile.” He may as well have said, “Their behavior was not only puerile, but puerile!”
This is why Republicans have a track record for losing battles against Democrats.
The Well-I-Never-Trumpers care far too much about behaving all prim and proper as if the Democrats won’t steamroll right over them so long as we follow the rules of good behavior and decorum.
Imagine being invited to a fancy dinner party where the host serves body parts and dog shit. And rather than get upset at the disgusting menu, you huffily complain about the lack of doily-lined plates.
This is the Well-I-Never-Trumpers.
Sure, the huffy writer concedes that Schiff’s super-secret Star Chamber Shampeachment “breaks precedent and is unfair.” But what really gets his panties in a bunch isn’t the Soviet-style kangaroo court, but those infantile, puerile ruffians who had the gall to behave in such an indecorous manner.
Do the Well-I-Never-Trumpers not realize that the venal Democrats have the entire corporate news and entertainment media going to bat for them?
Nobody is going to fight this battle for us. We need to get our hands dirty and get into this fight.
Since the media will not objectively report the shifty and dishonest way Adam Schiff is running this super-secret Star Chamber Shampeachment, should it come as a surprise that some House Republicans are taking a leaf out of President Trump’s book and going over the media’s head in a big, hard-to-ignore way?
But, see, this particular Well-I-Never-Trumper is fighting on the same side as the rabidly partisan press.
Just take a gander at all the people he tagged when he posted his silly, well-I-nevering column:
Look at all those tags….looks like someone is just begging to be booked for the leftwing news shows.— Seizer Pouncicus (@TastyKAR) October 24, 2019
Forget the Leftwing media, this so-called #tcot “principled conservative” is begging for the attention of that bumbling old coot Nancy Pelosi.
Years ago, Mark Levin coined the phrase “Vichy Republicans.” And the Well-I-Never-Trumpers most definitely fit that description to a T. They are willing to ally themselves with the people who want to destroy us — foolishly believing that they personally will be spared.
The Margaret Dumont of the Washington Examiner closed his pearl-clutching tantrum with this:
In sum, this was a cheap publicity stunt. It was way out of proportion to the unfairness they are protesting, grossly in violation of House rules, and at least somewhat a threat to national security. A well-timed press conference outside the secure room would have been fine. The disruption of the hearing was neither fine, nor even remotely acceptable. It’s the most serious breach of House decorum I’ve seen in my 40 years of caring what happens on the Hill. It must not go unpunished.
“It must not go unpunished! Well, I never!”
Oh, take off the skirt, Margaret, and man up.
If Schiff and the corrupt Democrats succeed, none of us in this country will go unpunished.
Don’t you friggin’ get that?
We are sick and tired of getting our asses kicked by a political party that does not let the Constitution (let alone “decorum”) get in its way.
For years we voters have demanded that Republicans stop tinkering around the edges of this “fundamental transformation” and fight back.
The only reason the Democrats have gotten away with so much is because the Romney/Flake/McCain/Ryan Republicans didn’t want to get their spats dirty.
These Well-I-Never-Trumpers expect Republicans to fussily adhere to Marquess of Queensberry rules while the Democrats fight dirty.
And though this is now cliché, I’m going to say it. This is why Trump won.
We’re fighting for the future of the country while the Well-I-Never-Trumpers are harrumphing over the lack of doily-lined plates.
Piss off, you dickless prats.
