Isn’t it nice to see so many Republican rats fleeing a Sinking Ship? And I’m not being facetious. I really am thankful.
There’s only one problem though. The ship isn’t sinking. It’s listing a little, but that’s okay.
The Trump anti-woke, real-America freedom ship is only a half mile from port and will soon set in where it will be transferred to dry dock to be refitted and will re-launch at a later date.
What will its assigned mission be? As yet, no one knows. But whatever it is, it will have a profound effect on the political landscape.
Many conservatives are angry at the Republicans for abandoning Trump the way they have. And honestly, I was at the start, but not after further reflection.
This sinking ship scare may end up being the best thing to happen to the “conservative movement.” It is exposing even the closet Trump haters for who they really are – and that’s a good thing. And lest we forget what this is really all about – notice I didn’t say, “the Trump movement.”
Uh oh, another football analogy. Well, actually it’s just a G.O.A.T. analogy – Tom Brady that is.
Tom Brady has had so many nay-sayers over the years. He was drafted into the NFL with the 199th pick. No fewer than 6 quarterbacks were taken before him. Heck, even when he played for the University of Michigan, he had to scratch and claw just to stay on the field, when so many wanted to replace him.
But it was ESPN’s sports analyst Max Kellerman, 5 years ago, in 2016 that exclaimed the following: “Tom Brady’s just about done. It could be his next game, it could be a year from now, but he is going to fall off a cliff. Tom Brady is going to be a bum in short order.”
For those who don’t follow football, first you need your head examined – think of Kellerman as the Lincoln Project (minus all the raunchy allegations).
He’s a Brady hater, as the Lincoln folks are Trump haters.
Kellerman is in no way the only one who has been steadily, year in – year out, after Brady even has a single sub-par game, to proclaim that Brady looks old and tired and should hang it up.
However, since his pronouncement, Brady has only won three more Superbowl championship rings and twice won the Superbowl Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Why do these supposed experts keep saying this stuff about the G.O.A.T.? Why do they still even think it?
Well, for starters, they hate the guy. They hate him because he appears to possess something unattainable for them and everyone they know. He appears to have the perfect life. And personally, there is not a soul that they can find who even dislikes the guy. And they, as do many others, resent this. They hate him out of jealously and because of his effectiveness. Trump’s detractors also hate him for his effectiveness.
Professionally, Brady has done more than any athlete, in any sport in the modern era, and that success, as in any endeavor, breeds hate and resentment.
Trump has not only professional, but personal detractors. Brady has never said a cross word about anyone, which can’t be said of Trump by a long shot. People like this of Brady, and most wish that Trump had Brady’s filter at times.
I’ve said since I became a Trump-convert that I dislike his public persona and his tweeting, but as he’s been a more constitutionally-grounded Executive than anyone since Calvin Coolidge (yes, even Reagan), I can quite easily accept the nonsense with all the good.
Trump, for the first time in well over 30 years, did in fact make America Great again – put America first, as we would our families.
And in doing so, upset the Deep State apple-cart, which led hundreds of “Republicans” from every government agency and department to bail – many endorsing Biden.
Why? Because preservation of the inside-the-beltway Mafioso is more important than the preservation of the Constitution and the country. And these same “Republicans” are under the delusion, as are the Deep State, old guard democrats, that after they’ve isolated, put-down and dispatched every vestige of Trumpism, they can somehow control the radical leftist barbarians, who will then turn on them and try to break down their Castle gates.
They’ll find out, as every other civilization that has employed radicals to do their dirty work has – that it is the radical’s employers who will pay the price ultimately, not us.
Not everyone who voted for Trump in 2020 is going to be able to see what’s happening like we do, but the silver lining to all the crap we will have to endure, is a cleansing of faux-conservative, Wokepublicans from our ranks.
