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?
Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder
Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.
Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.
Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.
“I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.
Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
