WSJ’s Bret Stephens Declares War Against Conservatives on Behalf of the GOPe

How do people like Ryan, McConnell, et al. get in a position to betray the conservatives they supposedly represent again and again like Lucy yanking the football away as Charlie Brown goes to kick it? The GOP establishment (GOPe) puts them there. The GOPe is vociferously hostile to conservative principles and anyone it considers likely to uphold them. You might want to get a rabies shot before getting too close as you listen to what the virulently moderate Bret Stephens has to snarl about conservatives.

Sarcastically pretending to speak for countermoonbats, Stephens proposes that we look for candidates who share our objectives because we secretly want to lose elections out of sheer neurosis.

Maybe secretly, maybe unconsciously, but desperately. We want four—and probably eight—more years of cable-news neuralgia. We want to drive ourselves to work as Mark Levin or Laura Ingraham scratch our ideological itches until they bleed a little. We want the refiner’s fire that is our righteous indignation at a country we claim no longer to recognize—ruled by impostors and overrun by foreigners.

Stephens demands the GOP run yet another RINO. What if anything did he learn from the 2012 debacle? That designated loser Mitt Romney wasn’t left-wing enough to out–left-wing the Democrats:

If the lesson of Mitt Romney’s predictable loss in 2012 was that it’s bad politics to tell America’s fastest-growing ethnic group that some of their relatives should self-deport, or to castigate 47% of the country as a bunch of moochers—well, so what?

If only Romney had tailored his campaign to appease illegal aliens and welfare recipients, the conservative base sitting home in disgust would have been superfluous.

Stephens names the Republicans he admires: George Will, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, and Marco Rubio. Being listed on this dishonor roll should sink Rubio’s campaign down to Jeb! levels.

Typically of liberals taking potshots, he dismisses Trump as a bigot, even going so far as to accuse him of not liking “astute Jewish negotiators” — despite Trump having surrounded himself with Jews. Ted Cruz is denounced for “chickening out” by not supporting amnesty.

Stephens doesn’t shy from personal denunciations. His electoral plan calls for appealing to Hispanics, Asians, sexual deviants, and “moderates turned off by loudmouth vulgarians [Trump], oleaginous debate champs [Cruz] or ostentatiously pious Christians [Carson].”

Mark Levin responds:

Bret Stephens is a mouthpiece for amnesty, like the rest of the amnesty ideologues at the WSJ. And he’s a jester for big government Republicans and corporatists. He’s part of the same lame crowd that trashed the Tea Party over the debt. That would be the Tea Party that delivered the GOP both houses of Congress and record state legislative and gubernatorial victories. Conversely, Stephens and his ilk backed Boehner to the end as they back McConnell and Ryan now. … And the WSJ helped deliver us two terms of Obama with their early and constant propaganda for McCain and Romney.

Meanwhile, the GOP and Stephens celebrate one of the lousiest budgets in modern times and, of course, attack conservative critics as [purists] hellbent on electing Hillary. Does it get any dumber than these guys? Delusional. Unprincipled. Cronies.

The battle lines are drawn: the liberal establishment including its GOPe wing on one side, regular Americans on the other.

On a tip from Varla.

    FYI: On nearly every subject – EXCEPT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION- the Wall Street Journal usually has the correct, rational, sane editorial viewpoint. The WSJ, after being acquired by murdock, changed its editorial policy to support ILLEGALS (i.e, cheap labor that is GOOD for businesses – and to hell with American citizens in the workforce.) Wire-tapping/email-hacking criminal murdock is 100% behind ILLEGAL immigration and AMNESTY for ILLEGALS and wants fully open US borders to allow alien criminals, like himself, unlimited access.

    The obvious favorites of the WSJ Editorial Board are AMNESTY TRAITORS Rubio. Bush and Fiorina. (Naturally, they have a soft spot -in their head – for McRINO.) They certainly dislike Trump, Cruz and Carson – the three offering the ONLY HOPE for America and what’s left of the GOP.

    McRomney lost because, like all RINO traitors, they can’t take a stand, won’t fight back (except against conservatives) and will sell out or cower in fear in a heartbeat.

    Trump is up in the polls, not because he is the absolute best candidate or because people like him as a TV star, it’s because HE CALLS A SPADE A SPADE, THEN TRIPLES-DOWN, SAYS IT AGAIN ONLY LOUDER, MOCKS THE PUNDITS (who just KNOW this time he’s destroyed his candidacy) AND SAYS WHAT WE ALL KNOW WE’RE THINKING.

    The fact is, the RINO Repubs are going to do all they can to throw the election if Trump is the candidate. It’s time for a “reset”. A new Republican party. McConnell, Rubio, McCain, Romney, Bush, Ryan, Boehner, Rove…OUT! All RINO scumbags OUT. Start your own Loser Party, whatever…but YOU ARE FIRED!

    The backstabbing GOPe is already cooking up another scheme just in case Trump can’t be stopped. Their plan? Have Jon Huntsman run as a independent. No, I’m not joking.

    Don’t forget the GOPe has done this before…against Ronald Reagan no less! Moderate John Anderson ran as an independent in 1980 after losing in Republican primary. It could have cost Reagan the election.

    More news from the scheming RINOs…

    There are MANY reasons why Trump scares the hell out of that group of nation wreaking neocons. One of them is Trump will clean up the corruption; thus many will face punishment up and including jail time. But what unsettles the neocons the most is Trump will halt their open-borders immigration policies.
    .
    Neocons, such as Bill Kristol, regard reducing the majority white population into a feckless minority as their holy grail. In that regard, the neocons share the same goal as Barrack Obama and his anti-White/anti-Christian left-lib ilk.
    .
    Remember, the neocons where Trotskyites operating within the Democrat Party before they disguised themselves then infiltrated the GOP.

    Better think before going up against Levin, Bret. Unless you need a new rear, nether-region, of course; then, the Great One will be glad to rip you a new one. No problem whatsoever . . .
