Trump, the Honest Referee
said, “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members.”
What was missing from these so-called Republicans’ statements is a moral denouncement of violent regressive groups such as Antifa, which is essentially a paramilitary wing of the American left. These cowards arrived with their faces masked, armed with clubs and bricks, and have repeatedly engaged in violence.
Trump had it right when he said there was wrong on both sides. He also took a beating for waiting for all the facts–something Obama always did and received no criticism, naturally.
“Conservative pundits rank Ryan, McCain, Graham, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake as the most notorious “Republicans in Name Only” politicians. What separates these Washington insiders from tried and true conservatives such as Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Utah Sen. Mike Lee and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is the follow through between words and actions.”
RINOs Don’t Care About Conservatism. It’s important to keep in mind that today’s conservative votes are not necessarily people who solely identify with the Republican Party. Many are non-political, hard-working Americans who want an even playing field, fundamental fairness and politicians to back up their campaign promises. They may have a favorite sports team, but at the end of the day, everyone wants the refs to call it both ways.
“The 2018 and 2020 elections won’t be a referendum on Trump, but it may be open season on RINOs who get pink slips from the silent majority.” Liberty Planet
