How uncomfortable this election season must be for most Republicans. They hate Democrats, but secretly also hate the Tea Party. When it was convenient, they certainly wore the Tea Party’s Badge of Unfair Allegation of Racism upon their own breasts. Yeahhh! We aren’t raaaaaacist! You just hate our guts!!!!
I believed that response. I actually believed that Tea Partiers who tended to share conspiracy theories (especially about Obama being a secret Muslim) were just a bit misguided, but still my ally.
These people were in reality Trump supporters waiting to be . . . what? Activated? Motivated? I can’t even begin to guess what motivates these individuals. All I know is, they use the same arguments that leftists use. They harass the same way that leftists do.
But we’re the bad guys, we who don’t fall into line and vote party loyalty ASAP.
I still have unanswered questions, by the way. Question number one: When folks raise up a candidate that is so awful, so indefensible that ‘movement conservatives’ rebel, saying “we aren’t down with that” well. How do you then blame them for the fallout?
The answer, of course, is you just do. Because they are not going along with the program.
Going against the program is bad, you know.
