The National Review: Anti-Trump Edition
PLEASE GO TO Infidel753's BLOG TO READ A GREAT ANALYSIS OF TRUMP'S MARCH TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S NOMINATION.
Check out all the conservative bigwigs who are against a Trump nomination.
Especially interesting is Thomas Sowell, a revered columnist and the TeaPublicans' favorite African-American conservative writer. I've read many times on right wing news sites and blogs how brilliant and what a "true" conservative he is.
What do the rabid righties, so in love with the Trumper, think of Sowell's and the other conservatives' defection?
The issue features a blistering editorial that labels Trump a threat to conservatism, as well as essays by 22 prominent conservative thinkers from various ideological factions, in opposition to Trump's candidacy.
"Donald Trump is a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and trample it underfoot on behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as The Donald himself," the editorial states.
One of Trump's competitors, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, quickly tweeted out the cover Thursday night. "Welcome to the fight, all. Trump is not a conservative," he said.
What? Trump's not a conservative? Then why is he so popular with so many of them? Trump is the embodiment of what the GOP has become: Angry, Loud, Petulant, Nasty, and Frightened of the Other.
It's too late to jump off of the tiger's back.
