Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, January 19, 2020

Timothy Egan, New York Times: It passed with the usual shrug by the usual handmaidens of hatred when the president of the world's most powerful democracy threatened to commit war crimes by bombing Iranian cultural sites -- the kind of barbarism practiced by the Taliban and rogue-state thugs. ... Under Trump, the United States is a confederacy of corruption, driven by a thousand points of evil. And that evil is contagious.

"Do not, as my party did, underestimate the evil, desperate nature of evil, desperate people," writes Rick Wilson, the Republican operative and witty Never-Trumper, in Running Against the Devil, his new book. "There is no bottom. There is no shame. There are no limits."

So Democrats and NeverTrumpers have run out of ideas ....

Dossier
Russian collusion
Racist
Russia collusion
Child Cager
Russia collusion
Ukraine

Nothing is working ... is it .. you don't even have decent candidate for the election.

So now Trump's "evil" .... I would say when Antifa and Gun nuts are on the same side, they are facing the true the fascists, Democrats.

It's starting to look as if the permanent stain of impeachment will be on Pelosi for trivializing the process while at the same time it confirms that Trump is directly over the target he was elected to destroy.

Desperation and Hail Mary's is all the LefistMSM has left.

Odds of Trump Winning in 2020 just gets better and better.

Trump's ballwashers cheer as their child raping hero kills migrant toddlers in his concentration camps. The dotard is the perfect reflection of the filth who voted him into office.

The responses from Trumpers illustrate perfectly what Egan said but they are incapable of understanding what he is saying nor why it is important. Their fear is that most people will have normal emotions and sense of right and wrong and that they will be like collaborators and treated as such going forward. It is what they are, they choose to be this way, I have no sympathy for them going forward.

No, Danni.

They understand it perfectly.
The hatred is a feature.
They love to hate.

Donald Trump is crazy and he is evil. The two traits potentiate one another. Yes, if you support Donald you support a crazy, evil man who will very naturally do crazy, evil works. You share fully in his craziness and his evil.

But at least he's anti-abortion, until he finds it useful not to be again.

You think conservatives would have actually opposed terrorizing populations by bombing cultural sites before? Or even genocide of non-white people? Since 2001, I have heard plenty of conservatives talk about "turning the middle east into a parking lot" while they pop a ----- at the thought.

Now, I don't like the word "evil" because it is very non-specific and open to interpretation. But, specific acts that a lot of people consider "evil" (genocide, concentration camps, terrorism), conservatives have been fully behind for a long time. It is just that their politicians were smart enough to know that these methods were counter-productive and against international law.

But, now conservatives have elected someone "just like them" (just as unintelligent as they are) that is willing to follow through on their emotional impulses. Trump is not the problem here. He is just a reflection of who conservatives really are.

The only problem is that a "real" conservative actually got elected (Trump) instead of a "conservative elite", who are really just people who manipulate the gullible little conservative sheep by talking big and making promises, but never actually following through. Trump is the essence of the average conservative. Emotional, simple-minded, violent, petty, spiteful, selfish. Trump isn't "contagious". He is just a real conservative who broke through the fence that the conservative handlers put around the everyday conservatives.

Trump is just a continuation of what started with the Tea Party. The conservative "elite" are still riding that tiger, and the longer they ride it the bigger it gets. And they are hanging on for dear life because they know if they try to get off they will just get politically mauled and eviscerated (what is Paul Ryan up to these days?).

Being a decent person who stands for something more than themselves is "unhinged" in your world?

That's pretty sad.

Or you can just admit you're being easily led when you try to appear noble and look for greater meaning or analysis in whether Trump is unfit for office and should be removed.

Because the answer to both is yes and he's proven it, himself, over and over and over.

I'm talking about the ridiculous, over-the-top rhetoric.

Here is the scale:

Hillary Clinton

***

Warren Jeffs

***

Ted Bundy

***

Adolf Hitler

***

The Demon from the Exorcist

***

Satan

***
***
***
***

Donald Trump

That is where things stand and it's why I made the "unhinged" comment.

But if the word corrupt is used you hmmm and haaa about it and claim a concrete position while muddying the water with the majority of your posts.

So what description satisfies you, jeff?

Corrupt is apt.

More evil than Satan is ridiculous, which is the point I was making.

And if you read the article it's not over the top rhetoric.

It's a list of things Trump has done that under any other POTUS would have been considered dire.

But his followers not only don't think so, they think it's great!

Just admit you'll never actually come down hard on Trump so we can drop the charade.

That is the thread summary and it's unhinged nonsense.

As a conservative I am not surprised that you don't know the definition of coup. Hell, conservatives don't even know (or care) what is in the Constitution. But, impeachment is a LEGAL process that is defined IN THE CONSTITUTION. This process is, by definition, legal because the Constitution DEFINES what is legal in this country. So, if Trump is removed by that process defined in the Constitution, it will not be a "coup".

I don't know why I waste my time responding to these idiots.
