#NeverTrump is comprised of self-important chiefs without any indians

National Review reports that David French isn't running for president. Rich Lowry somberly remarks that French's decision was faced with integrity and patriotism. Bill Kristol is encouraging French to pass the torch to someone like Lindsey Graham or Carly Fiorina.

Yawn.

Here's French's most (in)famous tweet:


Conservative Pundit (@DemsRRealRacist), prior to his character boarding the Trump train, should've tweeted the exact same thing, verbatim. It's tough to come up with parody this good.

The level of delusion is stultifying. This #NeverTrump movement is comprised of self-important chiefs without any indians. Age gracefully, the saying goes. Well, National Review refuses to fade into irrelevance gracefully.

Meanwhile, Scott Adams humorously welcomes our new harpy overlord. He echoes what Steve Sailer has pointed out before--comparing people to Hitler is murderously dangerous. A lot of people eagerly say they'd kill baby Hitler if they could go back in time to do so. As Adams puts it:
Once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him.
While Adams' concern for self-preservation is understandable, I'll die on my feet to a bullet through the chest. I sure as hell won't die on my knees to a bullet through the back of my head.

The problem with the chest or knees analogy is when they can threaten your kids.

Right. Funny enough, I felt vulnerable before I had kids but that was more an artifact of timing. I understand that hesitation. There is never going to be a better time than now to make the push, though.

Vox Day has a post worth reading on the topic: https://voxday.blogspot.com/2016/06/who-killed-conservatism.html

I like to pick on Jonah Goldberg because I think he is a great example of how compromised these guys are by simple greed. Goldberg's wife worked in the Bush admin. Surely, she was out buying new outfits a year ago, expecting to get a job in the Jeb admin or maybe the Rubio of Kasich admin. They planned for eight years of six figure salary plus all the perks that come with insider status.

Trump is the million dollar catastrophe. It's not just that, Jonah wagered his reputation on beating Trump. Suddenly he is looking down the barrel of eight years of repudiation. Trump is the arrival of the Black Death as far as these guys are concerned.

No Indians, No Chiefs, just court Jews. Hell of a movement they have there.

We at MPC (mpcdot.com, an internet samizdat site for gay, racist bodybuilders) refer to Jonah as a "bellowing powercuck," and it seems like a pretty apt phrase.

Z blog makes a good point: Trump threatens to upset many rice bowls. If Trump wins, a lot of people have a lot to lose: this is an existential threat to them. So the stakes are higher than ever.

Sounds good to me.

The whole Neo-Con Globalist cabal in the GOP needs 20 years in the wilderness.

The moment any person threatens your children is the moment every violence you inflict upon them in the absence of police action becomes a lawful self-defense of helpless dependents. You WANT threats against your family because those threats free the police and you to act against known aggressors.

MPC,

There are market niche opportunities everywhere. What a time to be alive.

That is going to be the line of attack the Clinton campaign is going to bring--Trump is too much of a threat to the status quo. In addition to her two top objectives of gun control and amnesty. If it works, we'll know the country is over and it'll be time to put all our political energy into secession.

Z,

Well put. Bill Kristol is another sleazy trough feeder in a similar situation. John Podhoretz too, although he's too dumb for anyone to take seriously.

Keith,

If it's physical violence, yes, but we're talking more about professional blacklisting, going after livelihoods, etc. At least I think we are.

If it's physical violence, no.

Are you both under the illusion that you can reach the actors who abuse your kids ALA San Jose?

The career threats are one thing.

Even concealed carry on you and your wife won't stop the San Jose style bad actors -- with government tacit approval -- from get your kids at school or through arson of your home.

It is not necessary to reach the actors on top. There are "reachable" players throughout the hierarchy. Reaching these people is not an illusion.
