What The Washington Post Got Wrong About Trump

Donald Trump Make America Great Again

Perhaps we should have titled this article “What The Washington Post Most Recently Got Wrong About Trump” because the editors of the self-appointed paper of record for the inside the Beltway elite have never been a fans of Mr. Trump.

But today’s editorial “The rank nihilism driving the GOP’s acceptance of Trump” is a new low in The Washington Post’s elitism and disconnection from the discontents of America’s country class.

As evidence of the Republican Party’s “nihilism” the newspaper’s editors cited Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus’s statement that, “We want to win in November, and Donald Trump is someone who has been winning.”

That Chairman Priebus wants to win in November should gladden the heart of every Republican voter, since the content-free campaigns of John McCain and Mitt Romney left us with the distinct impression that winning was not part of the Republican Party’s plan.

Nihilism is often defined as the belief that conditions in society are so bad as to make destruction, independent of any constructive program or possibility, desirable for its own sake.

This is clearly not what Trumpism is all about.

Donald Trump’s winning slogan – Make America Great Again – is hardly “nihilism,” it was perhaps the most positive and future-oriented rhetoric of any candidate in the Republican primaries, and certainly much more positive than Hillary Clinton’s proposition, which might be best summed-up as “More of the Same.”

What The Washington Post calls nihilism is what America’s country class citizens call a good house cleaning.

After conflating nihilism with building a winning populist-conservative coalition, the Post’s editors then leap to a shopworn attack on Mr. Trump arguing that it is “important that voters see Mr. Trump’s full business and financial record precisely because he lacks a history of public service on which to judge his suitability.”

We agree that financial transparency should be required of all candidates, particularly one, such as Hillary Clinton, who has made a career out of monetizing public service and went from leaving the White House “broke,” as she put it, to having a net worth of several hundred million dollars, all while working in government jobs.

It should be self-evident, even to the editors of The Washington Post, that the most important job of a political party is to win elections and that choosing a candidate who can win by testing the ability of multiple candidates to assemble a winning coalition through state primaries is how modern American political parties decide who will represent them in the general election.

Despite our support for Ted Cruz, Donald Trump won the most primaries and will go to the Republican National Convention with the necessary majority to be nominated. This is not an endorsement of Donald Trump by us, it is a reality created by the voters who voted in the Republican primaries.

The Washington Post’s opposition to Mr. Trump and its mindless defense of the indefensible status quo brings to mind another 19th century Russian political doctrine that competed with Nihilism – Feudalism and the divine right of the Russian monarchy.

In the political ideology of the Monarchists, stability came from the State and the Feudal nobility – and the Czar was The State. Change was impossible because the existing order was divinely established and everyone had their divinely established place; the elite ruled and the peasants labored.

Today’s inside-the-Beltway culture looks and feels a lot like the Russian monarchy of that era; government by decree and rule by a feudal elite who have made themselves immune to the rules of criminal law and civil society and who maintain their positions by taking whatever they want from the laboring classes.

A big part of Trump’s appeal, repeated often on the stump, is that he’s a builder. What has Hillary Clinton built, other than an impenetrable bubble of corruption?

To the extent that Donald Trump has promised to tear down the corrupt edifice that enables Hillary Clinton and the rest of Washington’s oppressive system it may look like destruction for its own sake to those on the inside, such as the editors of The Washington Post.

However, to us country class peasants on the outside it doesn’t look like nihilism, or destruction for its own sake, it looks like Trump is undertaking a necessary clearing away of the trash before building something new, and if the elite editors of The Washington Post don’t want to get crushed in the debris they better get out of the way.

Finally, a choice conservatives can support

I just heard from Austin Petersen on the Glenn Beck show and he looks very promising. I can easily vote for him instead of Trump. If all the conservatives will get together and back this man, he could win! Petersen2016

Third Party

You must be a mental midget. Any vote for someone other than Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary. You don't get that???

Back at 'cha

Since I am not in the habit of name-calling, I will just use your own words right back at 'cha. You are the mental midget if you think Trump is going to do any of the things he has said. He has financial ties to Soros of all people; ever heard of Soros? And then, once Trump disappoints you, you can call your self names instead of others.

Third party voter

No, they really don't get it and it is a wasted effort to post any thing to them. Let em go and throw their vote away. But do not allow them to whine when things get even worse with Hillary. Remember the fools. Those are the ones who enabled BO too.


His comparison to winning by a knockout was the only way to win this side of the election away from the GOP plotters. No one can deny Trump did just that. Congratulations to Trump and the future holds some promise for those of us who support his win.

We are FED UP. And the NWO agenda is not in our best interest as legal citizen's of this country. We are definitely smart enough to figure that out. And the message is really quite clear. This administration and this congress have made it quite clear to the silent majority of this country that they are NOT fit to govern. That it is time to take back the reigns of this government and clean out the lemmings who have followed the NWO agenda. That is exactly what this vote represents in support of Trump.

Donald Trump and The Washington Post

Isn't there some one working for those liberal rags that has even a modicum of integrity?Two of the women in that WA Post article denied their part in those accounts. Where the hell are the editors? Sitting on their cans smoking dope? Duh-uh

Endorse Trump

***This is not an endorsement of Donald Trump by us, it is a reality created by the voters who voted in the Republican primaries.***

If I, Mr. John Q. Voter, can swallow my pride and vote for Mitt Romney, then you all can endorse Donald Trump. Swallow hard, pull the lever, get it over with.



Who is Trump anyway?

We Constitutional Conservative 'Republicans' are no more excited about puting a big Government progressive who is fine with single payer healthcare, males in the ladies' locker room, higher taxes, Planned Parenthood, etc, etc, in office with an (R) after his name who tells us he doesn't need our votes, than Hillary. That doesn't mean we won't vote for him if we are convinced in November that our choice is Trump or Hillary. We are just going into the decision with a realistic view of who it is we are voting for unlike those people who believe he is the embodiment of Superman! Trump is a roll of the dice - a crap shoot! We are the realistic ones!

Endorse Trump

Don't forget to hold your nose when pulling that lever for trump.
That is what I will have to do.
