Anti-Trumpers Need To Fire On The Real Enemy Instead Of On Conservatives

D.C. McAllister, writing at The Federalist, makes a lot of very good points about who the real enemy is:

Anti-Trumpers still keep throwing conservatives under the bus to maintain the status quo, just as they’ve often done (remember the Tea Party).

We hoped they would go away after the election. We hoped they would stop their whining and grandstanding once Donald Trump took office. We hoped they would accept defeat and embrace our Republican president, that they would hold him accountable regarding policy and support any effort to right the ship that has been lurching toward the brink for decades.

But they didn’t go away. Their whining has grown shrill. Their opposition, not only to Trump, but to anyone who breathes a word in his favor, has swelled like a blistering boil. Our hopes were in vain, and now we’re reaching a breaking point.

I’m not talking about the liberal “resistance.” They’ll never go away. The Left never stops. I’m talking about NeverTrumpers—or Anti-Trumpers, as many prefer to be called now. Their relentless attacks on Trump echo the Left. They whine about his tweets, “faux masculinity,” vulgarity, personnel changes, unproven “collusion” with the Russians. They call him a racist, white nationalist, dictator, traitor, and a lunatic.

These paragons of virtue are also attacking fellow conservatives who call out the hypocrisy of the media, focus on the good Trump is doing while calling him to account for the bad, and refuse to jump on the bandwagon of conspiracy theories or get upset over every annoying tweet. For this, they’re called sell-outs, racists, failed conservatives, Trump whores, Putin lovers, media organizations that have lost all credibility.

Whose Side Are You On?

Worse, Anti-Trumpers are colluding with Democrats to oppose the president and attacking fellow Republicans in Congress for trying to get conservative policies passed. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham has teamed up with Democrat Sen. Cory Booker to write bipartisan legislation that stops Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol roundly criticized conservatives and the president during the Obamacare repeal process and is now engaged in talks to create a “Committee Not to Renominate the President.”
