Alt-Right Liars Duped By Their Own Fraud
In an remarkable spectacle of group meltdown, the duplicitous dimwits who willingly participated in the greatest fraud in U.S. presidential history are now acting as if they’re the ones who have been duped. Yes, that’s right: in the wake of Donald Trump’s air assault on Syria, the Trump pom-pom girls, the beta males kissing his ring, and the kook fringe conspiracy crowd flooding the internet with stories about Rafael Cruz assassinating JFK are now in a collective mock tizzy of alleged disillusionment. “How could our Trump have turned out to be a puppet of the military-industrial complex?” they moan, with what “Soopermexican” at The Right Scoop aptly calls “Pepe frog-tears.”
From Ann Coulter, this:
Media THRILLED that Trump is destroying his presidency.
From Laura Ingraham:
Missiles flying. Rubio’s happy. McCain ecstatic. Hillary’s on board. A complete policy change in 48 hrs.
(Speaking of complete policy changes, this is the same Ingraham who cheered the Iraq War during the Bush years, and visited the troops there as a publicity stunt to promote her radio show. Whatever’s good for ratings, I guess.)
From Paul Joseph Watson, the brains (it’s all relative) at Alex Jones’ Infowars:
I guess Trump wasn’t “Putin’s puppet” after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet.
So much shock and outrage being tweeted out from their poor little Trumpy hearts. Sure. As if Ann Coulter and the rest of this bunch of yahoos actually believed Trump was a brilliant political strategist who was going to make America great again, rather than just their latest convenient tool to thwart genuine conservatives and libertarians from making headway in their efforts to remake the Republican Party as a real constitutionalist alternative to the progressive establishment.
As if they didn’t know he was an ignoramous, an illiterate, an insecure blowhard, and easily susceptible to the influence of anyone who promised to keep him from looking stupid. As if they didn’t know he had long espoused views and attitudes contrary to everything he (intermittently) claimed to represent during the primaries. As if they didn’t see him sidling up to the Washington GOP establishment to grease the wheels of his primary victory and presidential campaign. As if they really believed he was more serious about America’s future as a free republic than Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio — or even Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, for Pete’s sake.
In refusing to grant these alt-right fakes the out of pretending they really believed in Trump — “In Trump We Trust,” Coulter cawed cynically — I am actually doing them the honor of granting them a modicum of political intelligence. I’d hate to think people dumb enough to truly believe any of their Trump propaganda could actually have prominent public voices and thousands of devoted followers.
Hoist with their own petard, Trump’s cheerleaders, who spent a year doing everything in their power to make sure Mitch McConnell’s stranglehold on the Republican Party would not be threatened for the foreseeable future, are now looking like the fools they tried to make of their readers and listeners. To admit they were lying and defrauding the public on behalf of the establishment — Coulter, as I never tire of reminding people, was, like Matt Drudge, in the tank for the establishment’s candidate (Mitt Romney) last time around too — would destroy their credibility with their own audience. So they are trapped in the position of having to play spokesmen for the Nationalist Demagoguery Broken Hearts Club, in effect to admit they were wrong, while claiming to have been blinded by their earnest desire to have faith in a true leader this time around.
Yeah, right, cry me a river.
