One of the most flamboyant and out-of-touch pundits to leave the Republican party over the election of President Donald J. Trump has been rejected by the party he tried to impress with his Never-Trumpism, and he took to Twitter to whine about it.
“I wrote: ‘No matter how strongly I come out against Trump… it is never enough for the most doctrinaire leftists who seem to think that no step short, perhaps, of ritual suicide will atone for my ‘war crimes.’ Exhibit A. Intolerance & self righteousness isn’t a good look,” said Max Boot about a piece by The Intercept.

The Intercept is a leftist publication that ran a piece encouraging its readers to reject Boot, a Bush-era establishment Republican, for his interventionist foreign policy positions.
The piece said:
It’s easy to understand why a penitent like Boot appeals to liberals and other members of the Trump resistance. He ratifies their sense of having been correct from the start, and his confession is enunciated in perfect sound bites, with just the right dose of abasement. Boot is an irresistible spectacle — the sinner with tears running down his cheeks dropping to his knees at the altar of all that is good, proclaiming that he has seen the light and wants to join the army of righteousness. But here’s the thing: Boot is only half-apologizing. And because he’s been wrong so many times and with so many ill consequences, he should be provided with nothing more than a polite handshake as he’s led out of the sanctuary of politics, forever.
Now Boot is upset that the leftists he worked so hard to impress have rejected him, as have the members of the new GOP, led by the wildly successful Trump administration, who despise foreign intervention and useless wars as much as the Democrats of the Bush era.
There is a critical lesson to be learned from Boot’s mistake. Never capitulate to the Democrats. They will never accept you into their pseudo-intellectual club of coastal elites. And who wants to be part of that club anyway?
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
