I left the Republican Party. Now I want Democrats to take over
The washington Post ^ | July 04, 2018 | Max Boot

Posted on 07/04/2018 10:56:46 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Personally, I’ve thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I don’t want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers. But I respect principled conservatives who are willing to stay and fight to reclaim a once-great party that freed the slaves and helped to win the Cold War. What I can’t respect are head-in-the-sand conservatives who continue to support the GOP by pretending that nothing has changed.

They act, these political ostriches, as if this were still the party of Ronald Reagan and John McCain rather than of Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller — and therefore they cling to the illusion that supporting Republican candidates will advance their avowed views. Wrong. The current GOP still has a few resemblances to the party of old — it still cuts taxes and supports conservative judges. But a vote for the GOP in November is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of America’s allies, the end of free trade and the appeasement of dictators.

That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must first be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.

An armchair warmonger like Max Boot, with no one to listen to his warmongering, is about as useful as a retired stud horse.

I think it’s safe to say, based on where the Democrats are, that Max Boot and George Will are openly Marxist, and wish for the destruction of the immigration service and the elevation of judges who subvert the constitution.

With a #WalkAway movement going full bore on Twitter (which will not acknowledge it is trending) this is what the Washington Post chooses to feature?!

He writes this as if George Will is a conservative.

Oh, the “principled” modifier must be used here in the sense of “not”.

Another Cheap Labor Express propagandist.

The New World Order that GHW Bush promised them is collapsing in front of their eyes and they can’t stand it.
