It just keeps getting worse for Bill Kristol.
The former editor of now-defunct Weekly Standard, which #NeverTumped itself to death, was the subject of a Twitter smackdown from a Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) early Tuesday morning.
Gaetz dug up Kristol’s August endorsement of Chris Dosev, who challenged Gaetz in a 2018 midterm primary and was summarily destroyed. In the endorsement, Kristol said Dosev was “impressive” and called Gaetz “one of the worst GOP members.”
Gaetz has been a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump and the America First agenda, naturally pitting him against curmudgeon Kristol, the out-of-touch dinosaur.
“An unimpressive endorsement from one of the worst former publishers,” Gaetz shot back at Kristol.

This Tweet exchange is a perfect metaphor for the relationship between the old guard Republican establishment and the new, America First GOP. Kristol, who has not been relevant since America’s populist revolution, endorsed a loser and then watched haplessly as his formerly-impenetrable publication sank like the Titanic. Meanwhile, Gaetz won his election and bested Kristol.
It is no mystery why this trend continues. Americans want elected officials and public figures to fight for their interests. Americans do not want smug elitists who only pretend to care about them until cocktail hour, when they meet up with their black-tie D.C. friends to bash the peasant class.
Weekly Standard shuttered last week, finally succumbing to a market that no longer cares for anti-Trump conspiracy theory and snobby commentary.
Big League Politics reported:
A formerly-relevant conservative magazine has shut down after two years of #NeverTrump commentary finally drove the majority of its readership away.
“All good things come to an end. And so, after 23 years, does The Weekly Standard. I want to express my gratitude to our readers and my admiration for my colleagues. We worked hard to put out a quality magazine, and we had a good time doing so. And we have much more to do. Onward!” said Bill Kristol, formerly Weekly Standard’s editor-at-large and the publication’s most prominent personality.
Kristol is known for ditching the GOP over the nomination of President Donald J. Trump in favor of the globalist establishment. Weekly Standard’s former readers left for more in-touch media sources and never forgave him. After 23 years in business, the publication became obsolete in just two years.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
