Trump, the Honest Referee


 “If the fallout from the Charlottesville violence tells conservatives anything, it’s that the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) have got to go.”  RINOs like Paul Ryan, and John McCain pandering to the Trump hating media, immediately piled on our president,  Graham
 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

Blogger,

This topic is perhaps the most important political topic you've brought forth in a while. It's appalling to see RINOs actually come out in the open and criticize the President's fair and balanced views. I watched, horrified, as Fox News and Rethuglicans began their typical pandering to the left first with lawful gun owners exercising 2nd Amendment Rights and then with a group of individuals who lawfully, peacefully assembled to make their grievances known. Only after a pole showing 62% of Americans want the Confederate statues to remain standing did Fox News carefully craft a more balanced view (they still run from the real issues though). The RINOs still haven't got the hint. The Rethuglicans may well lose big during the next election, something conservatives warned them about time and again.

RINOs just don't seem to get it. I've come to believe they are incapable of believing the proletariat is actually ready to differentiate between conservatives and liberals. We saw evidence of that prior to the 2016 Presidential election when Watauga County Establishment RINOs tried to say they were conservative even when their actions proved otherwise. Now we hear nothing from those liberal losers.

Vote the RINOs out. The Watauga County Rethuglican Party is about done in this county. They didn't listen to conservatives on this site and paid the price. Again, they are incapable of listening to the proletariat. The farmer out in Aho who was accosted by tin post despotic health inspectors is proof of that. Vote them all out even if it means a liberal democrap goes in. They need a lesson.

Why are you siding with Nazis, the KKK and racism? These violence Nazis do not represent Freedom, Liberty, justice or human rights.

These "violence NAZIS" are as bad or worst than the Russians and the statues.

Does everyone realize that this statement of Trump saying there is wrong on both sides is causing the charge of racism and all the uproar--Emmy awards NFL etc? He was suppose to say there is no moral equivalence between white supremacy and antifas. One side has no merit. The other side is only violent because they are justified in getting revenge for past grievances. In saying what he did, Trump revealed integrity and he is my hero.
