The nexus of establishment anti-Trump propaganda at the Washington Post Editorial Board has been flaming batshit crazy for nearly a year now but it just kicked it up a notch . In an unprecedented move, longtime conservative columnist George Will openly called for Republicans nationwide to nuke their own front-runner. Mr. Will – whose wife worked for the Scott Walker campaign – is in full meltdown mode now that the genius GOPe move to rally around Ted Cruz as an alternative to Trump has imploded.
Will’s plaintive wail, “If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House” is such a foray into sheer desperation that it borders on parody:
Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their party’s history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the party’s reconstruction.
Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified.
Were he to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states — condign punishment for his comprehensive disdain for conservative essentials, including the manners and grace that should lubricate the nation’s civic life. Second, conservatives can try to save from the anti-Trump undertow as many senators, representatives, governors and state legislators as possible.
With his “America first” foreign policy speech on Wednesday, Trump delivered the possible kill shot to an elite gaggle of con artists, charlatans and leeches who have lived high off of the hog at the expense of hard-working Americans for way too long. The panicked columns of Will and his fellow WAPO neocon travelers is a sign that in Trump that the average Joe and Jane on Main Street have finally found a man who will step up and pull the chain to flush the giant, overflowing toilet on the Potomac.
Will’s appeal to sink Trump confirms what has long been suspected is that the establishment would rather put Hillary Clinton into the White House than have their racket threatened.
