The Washington Post has harsh words for Republican leaders who won’t criticize Trump

Like us on Facebook:

One month ago, conservative magazine The National Review released an article and magazine issue called “Against Trump,” an editorial team effort to sway the Republican establishment to step up their game and rid the race of the man who is arguably the most unhinged and unabashedly evil in the whole clown show, with racist policies and illegal proposals. With a slew of state wins under his belt, Trump remains in the race, and the Editorial Board of a much larger publication, The Washington Post, has released their own piece of encouragement to slow the Trump Train down. “GOP Leaders, you must do everything in your power to stop Trump,” implored the editorial team at WaPo this past week.

“The unthinkable is starting to look like the inevitable,” the piece began. See, I thought I was in a minority to be having my own fears, but having them validated by WaPo and watching win after win… it has myself and other liberal and leftist Americans feeling nervous. Hell, it’s making republicans themselves nervous, but thus far, there’s been a lazy effort to come together as a party and stop the man in his tracks. That’s what happens when the party voting body is still divided over five, five, (five, people!) men vying for the office of the Presidency of The United States.

In regards to party leadership, WaPo had this to say: “Some have spoken up over the course of Mr. Trump’s campaign, and then stepped back; others have been silent. The silence may reflect an absence of courage and also an element of calculation: There was an assumption that Mr. Trump would fade, and that confronting him would only make him stronger. The calculations have proved wrong. If Mr. Trump is to be stopped, now is the time for leaders of conscience to say they will not and cannot support him and to do what they can to stop him.”

Chris Christie, a former opponent, has coming out in favor of Trump, further stirring up an already bubbling pot.

At this rate, it’ll take a small miracle to keep the reality star and businessman off of the November ballot. In the meantime, I’ll be “reaching across the aisle” to libertarian doomsday preppers to get their input on how best to prepare for imminent disaster in the event of a Trump presidency.

    I’m no fan of Trump, but it’s fun to watch Fox News, conservative talk radio, and the Republican Party reap what they sow. So many years of vacuous bombast and bullshit from Republicans has culminated in the most vacuous, bombastic and bullshitting presidential candidate imaginable winning the Republican race. I love it, and wish Trump the very best until he runs into a Democrat in the general election.

    And although I’m between Clinton and Sanders on the political spectrum, I’m all for Sanders to help balance out the extreme conservative insanity that has dominated US politics since Reagan, and especially during the past 15 years.

    It’s way past time that the establishment of both parties shake off their Wall Street addiction to money and greed and pay attention to the harsh realities on Main Street. As Thomas Piketty has said, the benefits of free trade need to be shared, or free trade will be shot down by voters.

    Get used to it. President Trump. It’s the will of the majority of American voters. If the GOP doesn’t like it, too bad. They should have said so instead of making all of the candidates sign a pledge. People don’t care what Rubio or anyone else says about him . He is not owned like the rest. The others are like dogs on a leash . They do what their masters tell them. Not the people that voted for them, but their corrupt rich donor class masters. That must end now. A chance to end it may never happen ever again. Trump 2016. !!!

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
