Wake Up, Republicans!

Posted on October 28, 2019 by Robert Ringer


President Trump laid yet another delicate tweet on his detractors when he wrote, “The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats.  Watch out for them, they are human scum!”  The media went crazy and Never Trumpers, of course, were appalled.

Sorry, guys, but scum perfectly describes Never Trumpers like Pierre Dilecto.  Of course, nothing Pierre says or does surprises me, because he is perennially indignant and offended.  But why in the world would an unknown guy like Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) feel an uncontrollable urge to blurt out, in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer (of course), “To call anybody human scum is beneath the office of the presidency.”

A day earlier, Kinzinger chimed in on Trump’s lynching tweet about the impeachment inquiry when he said, “We can all disagree on the process, and argue merits.  But never should we use terms like ‘lynching’ here.  The painful scourge in our history has no comparison to politics, and @realDonaldTrump should retract this immediately.  May God help us to return to a better way.”

If there’s anything that can bring a smile to the faces of unscrupulous Democrats, it’s watching an obscure Republican House member scolding a Republican president.  It gives them reassurance that all is well in the swamp and that Republicans still understand who is in control of things.

Apparently, Kinzinger wants God to help us return to the good old the days when only Democrats were allowed to use words like scum and lynching, a time when they could defame Republicans with the most vicious words and accusations imaginable and Republicans could be counted on to take it all in stride and not dare to return fire.

A good definition of lynching is “a premeditated extrajudicial killing by a group.”  Metaphorically speaking, it’s a definition that perfectly describes what has been happening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president on June 16, 2015.

Which is why White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was absolutely right when she said, “The people who are against him and who have been against him and working against him since the day they took office are just that.”  Would that all Republican congressmen and women possessed the honesty and courage of Stephanie Grisham.

Jerry Nadler should feel relieved after hearing Grisham’s comment, since he himself has said, on no less than three occasions, that Republicans were acting like a “lynch mob” (with regard to Bill Clinton’s impeachment).  Charlie Rangel accused Republicans of having a “lynch mob mentality” on the same issue.  And, as one would expect, China Joe chimed in with, “History is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching.”  The Democrats are not just contemptible, they are hypocritically contemptible.

The list goes on:  Mitch McConnell, not to be outdone, added, “Given the history in our country, I would not compare this to a lynching.  That was an unfortunate choice of words.”  The turtle is so incapable of controlling his urge to take subtle jabs at President Trump and other principled Republicans that it makes one wonder if he suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome.

Finally, House speaker Kevin McCarthy, doing his best to imitate his ex-boss Paul Ryan, got in the act by saying, “That’s not the language I would use.”  Psst:  Kevin, no one cares what language you would use.  What they care about is you having the character and gonads to unconditionally support the president.

I could fill a book with such holier-than-thou garbage, but the bottom line is that too many Republicans jump at any opportunity not only to criticize Trump, but anyone in their own party who dares to offend Democrats.  Perhaps they believe that if they just display enough sanctimoniousness in attacking fellow Republicans, Democrats will love them as much as they did John McCain and Jack Kemp.

It’s interesting to conjecture what kind of mental issues cause people like Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Paul Ryan to continually pound their chests and give pious lectures to others.  In the case of Romney and McCain, I suspect that the humiliating defeats they suffered at the hands of a ne’er do well community organizer, with zero credentials and a well-documented Marxist past, smashed their delicate egos beyond repair.  McCain died a bitter, vindictive old man, and Romney is clearly headed for the same fate.

Paul Ryan, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be bitter, because his self-righteousness has different roots.  He not only was prom king of his high school class, but, with the skill of a great Broadway performer, has continued to play that role in real life.  In other words, he’s a small-town big shot who makes the fatal mistake of taking himself too seriously.  News flash, Paul:  The prom is over!

Today, more than ever, Republicans happily play the role of useful idiots for the Dirty Dems.  Their attitude is, “I simply have to speak up when I don’t approve of something.”  Wrong!  You don’t have to speak up.  You choose to speak up.  What you need to do is get your wussy head screwed on straight and stop trying to make people believe you’re Mahatma Gandhi.  You aren’t.

The underlying problem to all this is that Republicans think they’re playing a parlor game, while Democrats view it as a death-to-the-finish war.  Which is why the Dirty Dems are so ruthlessly aggressive and openly display a take-no-prisoners attitude toward Republicans.  They are absolutely convinced that their virtuous goals justify their wicked words and actions.  Above all, unlike their Republican adversaries, every Democrat understands that compromising with the enemy is strictly verboten.

Make no mistake about it, we are at war with social-justice barbarians who are devouring the very soul of our nation.  My message to Republicans is this:  Your saintliness is impressive and all that, but it’s time to shut up and pull out the brass knuckles.  If you can’t muster the character and courage to adopt a killer attitude toward the enemy, do everyone a big favor and switch parties, post haste.  Trust me, you will not be missed.

Wake up, Republicans!  The survival of America is at stake — literally.

    Not to mention the original S.C.U.M. So Called Unbiased Media.

    As always Robert, you are spot on! Why don't these WHINY so called Republicans just GO AWAY!

  3. michaelfto says:

    Maybe both sides shouldn't have used the term "lynching".

    • JurassicRick says:

      If you want to see a really true blue lynching, just look back and revisit the presidential election of 1964 and see what they did to one of their own, Senator Barry Goldwater. They eat their own.

  4. JurassicRick says:

    As I have stated in response to previous Tortoise articles, the R's are nothing but a complete bunch of worthless benchwarmers who are in politics for a government paycheck and a lifetime of financial security. The end! Most are really D's and deserve to join their ranks. If you think they are true conservatives, think again and think hard. Just look back to 1964 and see how they mercilessly crucified a really true Conservative, Senator Barry Goldwater who ran on the R ticket for president. They left in droves and voted for LBJ. They should have stayed there. As for me, most of my life I have been a registered Independent. Here in Kentucky, they call it "Non partisan". Whatever! It wasn't until Hussein Nobama seized power in 2008 and held America and its people hostage that I made the switch to R. But I found out again how meek, mild, timid, and apologetically worthless the R's really are. When Donald Trump came on the political scene, I could see the difference and stark contrast between him and the establishment R's and how they really showed their true colors. I am an R until he eventually leaves office. I and most other Trumpsters will eventually leave too. I do not call myself a "Republican". I call myself a "Trump Republican", big difference. I prefer the Constitution Party, a true 100% Conservative party that does not and will not sell or compromise their political beliefs. I am tired of voting R every four years just to keep the Radic-Libs out of the White House. The R's just look conservative when contrasted with the dirty D's. But they are not. Actually, there is no real difference between the two. The Tortoise has referred to them as "Demopublicans" in Restoring the American Dream. Yes, indeed. I also call them "Republicrats". Same thing, different labels. For me, when Trump leaves office down the road, I'm gone. it's over. Time for a big change.

    I agree 100% with this article. Time for freedom lovers to put some brass on their tongue and fight back like your life depends on it.

  6. Christopher Christopher1776 says:

    It would have been helpful if McConnell had said,

    "The leftist anti-Constitutional Democrat party and the democrat media-globalist complex tried, unsuccessfully, for nearly three years to reverse the results of our election and to remove a duly elected President from office for no impeachable crime. It is the greatest hoax perpetrated on our country. President Trump is presumed guilty for refusing to be bought off and for refusing to stop doing his job.

    The coordinated and continuing efforts to undermine the Office of the Presidency by leftist democrats and their complicit leftist-democrat media are likely an effort to distract, divert and delay appropriate scrutiny away from the actual crimes committed against our Constitution by the leftist democrats and their globalist allies in the last election.

    I doubt that any previous president or any person besides President Donald J. Trump could have functioned under this perpetual coup, and I applaud President Trump for holding back, displaying admirable grace under pressure. The President articulates what the majority of informed Americans believe is accurate regarding some of the more thoughtless comments heard from the 'Romney-McCain branch' of the Republican party. Trump is our only defense as we stand up for our republic and against socialist despotism in the 21st century. Now is the time for all Republicans to support our Republic and our President.

    Stand up for our Constitution, stand up for the Republic and stand up for President Trump."

      Imagine how much more he would make America even greater if he wasn't distracted continually by all the hoaxes and threats.

  7. larajf says:

    I agree. We need to jettison the Never Trumpers. Pull together and solve the problem.

  8. Pitch22 says:

    The "Road To Socialist Serfdom" for America became a one way super highway with no u-turns long ago.

    • thebacksaver says:

      I fear you are correct. (see Ayn Rand's last public speech approx 1980.) But, if so, lets go down fighting.

  9. Ivan says:

    It is what it is, scum. It talks barbaric, lies like it, deceitful, and just won't let up on a President that won fair and square, get over it, only a year left. Come 2020, he'll probably have to run as an independent. I believe Trump calls it the way it is.

  10. HonestProfessor says:

    The sentiments in RR's article and the comments above are true. So the next question is, "Why don't the Republicans act the way WE think they should act?" They must have some motivation or power above them that prevents them acting in accordance with the wishes of the Republican/Trump base. Until that question is addressed, it's business as usual.

  11. Mr Domain says:

    I really like the slogan "Wake up, Republicans !." I personally believe Trump will win the next election.
