Lapdog Republicans Afraid to Act
For someone who has been covering the left’s war on America, their success has been possible by the spineless, gutless response by the Republican party. The only real pushback came with the outsider, Donald Trump. And their reaction to Trump and his supporters was madness unleashed — violent, vicious, unprecedented. A coup against America was activated and the GOP just flaps it tongue, or worse, aids and abets.
In the wake of high crimes, treasonous acts, election fraud, etc. etc., all we get are flapping tongues. Nothing’s been done.

Another example of indisputably corrupt and unscrupulous Democrat behavior has erupted onto the national scene with the release of the years-long Durham probe into the alleged “Russia-Russi-Russia” influence on the 2016 election. Once again, virtually every phony charge against President Trump was proven to be false, virtually every claim he made about being spied on was proven true and the FBI has been revealed — again — to be a politically unethical organization far more concerned with tipping the electoral scales in favor of the Democrats than they are concerned with fighting crime. The Durham Report is just the latest in a long line of negative findings about prominent Democrats that never seems to result in any of them paying any tangible penalty for their wrongdoing.
The Democrats have made a habit of lying and gaming the system to their advantage. They always make sure they give the liberal mainstream media plenty of fodder with which to club Republicans over the head and they continually seek to arrange (if not outright rig) the relevant local ordinances, procedures, and laws to their unfair advantage in order to tilt elections in their favor.
BLM and Antifa riot, destroy private property and kill innocent bystanders, and the liberal mainstream media portray them as victim-heroes, while top Democrat leaders defend them, justify their actions and never prosecute them for any crimes. The police are characterized as racist vigilantes, more interested in violating the civil rights of minorities for sport than they are in protecting the public’s safety. But let one Republican politician say something questionable and they’re pilloried mercilessly in the public square as if it were the crime of the century.
Hillary Clinton famously described one-half of the country she was vying to lead as a “basket of deplorables,” and there was not one iota of criticism from the liberal media, any Democrat politician, or any rank-and-file Democrat partisan. On the contrary, their unspoken reaction was, “Well, she’s right. They are.”
During the January 6th 2021 protest, one protester — Ashli Babbitt — was shot dead in cold blood by Capitol policeman Michael Byrd. Say what you want about the Capitol protest (and we’ll leave that discussion for another time), it certainly didn’t appear on the video that Babbitt posed an imminent deadly danger to people. She brandished no weapon and took no life-threatening actions against anyone. Yet she was killed for reasons that remain, at best, highly questionable. In a different circumstance, with the races reversed, this action would be trumpeted by the liberal media and the Democrats as yet more proof of the inherent racism of the Republican Party.

The Republican capitulationist leadership are pure pragmatists. The pragmatist accepts the world as it is. They become more than a little annoyed when certain people, like the Republican base, keep pushing for fundamental changes. Such RINOs, wedded to the status quo, don’t really like the GOP base.
RINOs have always had a problem with “the vision thing,” as the elder Bush once said. They never look forward beyond the impending split second. Concepts of past and future hold no meaning for them. The promises they make are for present purposes only. Since the future is unreal, any commitment actually to deliver on promises is similarly unreal to them. Since the past is unreal to them, they have no understanding why anything they might have said or done in the past should constrict their present options.
Such pure pragmatist Republicans don’t actually lie. To lie, one must have in one’s mind some concept of truth. RINOs have no such concept. They believe the pragmatist mantra: truth is what works. Thus if they say something and people become supportive, the statement works and is thus true.
Much of the GOP leadership is like that. They say whatever’s necessary to reassure their base, but nothing they say commits them. RINOs have long considered betrayal as practical.
Ultimately, the only cure for the pure pragmatist, capitulationist Republicans is to get rid of them, to lose the RINOs.
Very thoughtful and well said.
