Am I the “Kevin” described in Floyd Alvey’s letter as a GOP hater? If warning readers of The T-I about the dangers of Trump and his Republican enablers have posed, and still pose, to our Republic, if that makes me a GOP hater, then so be it.
Since July of 2016 I haven’t been at all silent regarding Trump’s dishonest, divisive, psychopathic and ultimately outright treasonous behavior.
The early stuff seems so benign today. Payments to porn stars. Grabbing women “you know where.”
In the Charlottesville white supremacist march there were “good people on both sides.” Recently Trump and his lawless Attorney General Bill Barr used tear gas and rubber bullets against peaceful protestors, just so Trump could stroll across the street and fumble clumsily with a Bible — he held it up backwards — in front of a church whose door he never darkens.
Back then it was Russian help with Trump’s election. Nowadays his pal, Vladimir Putin, pays the Taliban in Afghanistan to kill young Americans and Trump says nothing. Must be he wants Putin’s help in this election also.
A while back I wrote that after Trump the GOP would have to spend some time in the wilderness. Yesterday I heard a Never Trumper say, “The Republicans will have to take a walk in the forest.” Her language was milder than mine but it says the same thing.
You all know who the Never Trumpers are. Some are still members of the GOP; others have quit the party. The Lincoln Project? Republicans Voters Against Trump? We are already seeing their political advertising. Very effective and bad news for Trump and his allies and enablers. I wonder if those Republicans and former Republicans are GOP haters, too.
