Playing McClellan to Trump’s Grant: The NeverTrump Traitors

Here is Joe Herring writing about McClellan (!) at American Thinker:

Some learned and accomplished folks, who deservedly command a great deal of respect and admiration, view the Trump presidency in an entirely different light from what millions of Americans see.

To these sage and wizened critics, the president’s persona outweighs his achievements; his flaws overwhelm his strengths and, by extension, hamstring his ability to move an agenda forward.

I believe that those harboring an anti-Trump mindset would do well to consider that the election of Trump was never about the man – it was not the “cult of personality” that the major media and the establishment Republicans portrayed it to be, but rather more like an Arthurian drawing of sword from stone.

Trump wisely shouldered the long ignored mantle of champion for those of us who have grown intensely sick of the miasma of molestation surrounding our present citizen-government relationship.

In truth, it could’ve been anyone. Conservatives have been pleading with the Republican Party for decades to put forth a candidate willing to assume this role, and for decades, the Republicans have refused.

If not for the insurgent candidacy of Ronald Reagan (who upended his presidential race in much the same way as Trump) we would have seen an unbroken line of feckless leadership for nearly a century.

Only the most willfully ignorant among us would deny that the trendline of our nation has bent inexorably to the left for that entire time. While occasional blips occurred, none truly reversed the course. Not even Reagan could reverse the flow of the left’s statist current.

Unarguably, our nation has become like one envisioned more by Marx than by Jefferson.

Meanwhile, the anti-Trump Republicans hector us about “comity,” “collegiality,” and “conduct,” as they continue to play McClellan to Trump’s Grant.

Establishment Republicans insist that our president is poisonous to discourse, yet they offer nothing more than spittle-flecked denunciations of the man personally while failing to recognize the invaluable work he is doing to thwart the steady degeneration of our form of government.
