Last week, a radio show host slammed ardent #NeverTrump “conservative” Ben Shapiro for his fence-sitting during the 2016 election.
“When we needed you, Ben, with your millions of YouTube viewers, and your millions of listeners, and your brand new radio show – when we needed you to help us stand up against Obama and the Democrats and Clinton – you were MIA, man,” said Rich Logis of the Rich Logis show.
“You were nowhere to be found. You were in the comfort of your cozy recording studio, doing this whole ‘right to be right’ thing and saying you’re a principled constitutional conservate. Well guess what, Ben. Principled, constitutional conservatism wouldn’t have meant a damn thing – it would have breathed its last breaths had Hillary Clinton gotten elected.”
“Why is it that Ben Shapiro gets a pass for his devout Never Trumper-ism?” Logis asked. “See the thing about Ben is that he’s a smart guy. But here’s the thing about ‘smarts’ in politics. It sounds good in theory, but the cleanliness of theory is really no match for the mess of reality. Ben’s conservatism is rock solid. He’s pro-life, he’s staunch for free enterprise, and he’s all about state’s rights. He declared his Never Trumperism because he wants to remain neutral.”
Logis argues that in reality, being a Never Trumper equals being a Democrat. His reasoning is that there is no such thing as true neutrality in a free society.
“Everybody is on a side, whether they like it or not, whether they realize it or not, and whether they know it or not,” Logis said. “I want you to know, Ben, it’s not personal. It’s strictly business.”
Logis is right. With Shapiro, it is strictly business. Shapiro’s anti-Trump sentiment makes financial sense. His site, Daily Wire is owned by fracking billionaires Dan and Farris Wilks, who have been Ted Cruz supporters since 2015. The brothers donated $15 million to a pro-Cruz super PAC. Never Trumpism has been a death sentence for media outlets like RedState, who laid off a massive amount of staff last week. But with billions behind an operation like Daily Wire, there will be no shortage of cash to support their poisonous anti-Trump babble. At one point, Daily Wire was in talks to acquire Never Trumper Glenn Beck’s site, The Blaze. Shapiro pitches his Never Trump attitude as holding to “conservative principles.” That may be his motivation, money talks in politics as it does in every other industry.
In any case, Logis elucidated the frustrations that many Trump supporters have with the old guard, traditional “conservatives.” They are simply not willing to fight – to sling mud in order to win. In their view, it’s a compromise of their precious principles. It’s precisely the reason why conservatism has failed to conserve anything in the last 50 years. Politics is a contact sport, and those who are unwilling to fight will be run over.
Is the FBI Preparing to Revoke 1st Amendment Protections for Trump Supporters?
Ripping off the mask.
After last week’s mostly peaceful protests at the Capitol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to browbeat and scrutinize Trump supporters as criminals, CNN has announced.
The rationale is that all Trump supporters are “extremists,” and if their constitutional rights are honored and protected, they might commit domestic terrorism, or something.
“Federal officials stressed on the call with state, local, tribal and college campus law enforcement leaders that the FBI will not tolerate extremists using the First Amendment as a guide to incite violence,” CNN reported.
Predictably, the Rooskies are being trotted out as a familiar scapegoat for the growing anger that is building against corrupt government officials in both parties.
“According to the source, federal officials said on the call that Russian actors have been amplifying the false narrative that members of Antifa infiltrated Trump supporters during the riot at the US Capitol, and the Chinese have seized on news stories showing chaos in the US,” CNN reported.
According to the article, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are predicting that more violence is on the way.
“The violent breach of the US Capitol Building is very likely part of an ongoing trend in which (extremists) exploit lawful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, and other gatherings to carry out ideologically-motivated violence and criminal activity,” an intelligence brief from the deep state agencies stated.
Big League Politics has reported on the massive crackdown that has ensued since last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, which has put the entire political establishment on notice:
Meghan McCain, the venomously anti-Trump daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, is calling for President Donald Trump’s supporters to be put into Guantanamo Bay.
McCain is calling for Trump supporters who participated in the infamous and historic Capitol siege in Washington D.C. last week to be detained in the facility typically used to hold foreign terrorists.
“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” she said during a discussion on ABC’s “The View.”
… McCain also endorsed impeaching President Trump or removing him with the 25th Amendment, thinking this incredible overreach would somehow prevent the likelihood of violence…
The events of last week have exposed who the RINOs are once and for all. The civil war within the Republican Party over the next election cycle will be epic.
The mask has been ripped off. Fair elections are no more, the Constitution is toilet paper, and the deep state will be treating patriotic Americans like ISIS.
