Thinkage

"You say you want someone who’s politically incorrect. You’re so desperate for political incorrectness — a supremely ridiculous reason to vote a guy into the Oval Office, but never mind — that your esteem for him only grows when he belittles the disabled, mocks American prisoners of war, calls women dogs, calls his opponents p*ssies, calls for the assassination of women and children, says he’d like to have sex with his daughter, brags about his adultery, etc. "You’re excited by the most vile statements and most cretinous behavior imaginable — not remotely deterred by any of it, no matter how many times he gloats over infidelity, curses his opponents, and publicly ogles his own children — because, you say, it’s politically incorrect. That is how unfathomably desperate you are for someone to come along and just say what’s on their mind, you claim. You’re so fed up with political correctness that you celebrate political incorrectness without distinguishing between the healthy sort and the 'LOL I slept with married women and I’m not sorry' sort. It doesn’t matter if you don’t personally agree, you say, you just respect the hell out of someone who’s willing to shoot straight, even when 'shooting straight' means comparing Ben Carson to a child molester, calling the entire electorate of Iowa stupid, and referring to women as 'pieces of ass.'

"Trump won South Carolina on the support of Evangelical Christians who were so impressed with his alleged straight talk that they overlooked the fact that he’s a crass, cruel, unrepentant philanderer who says he does not need God’s forgiveness, and who praises Planned Parenthood as 'wonderful' and his radically pro-abortion sister as a 'phenomenal' candidate for the Supreme Court. That’s how much you pretend to admire bluntness in a man. So much that it overrides literally everything else." -- Matt Walsh, Dear Trump Fan, So You Want Someone To ‘Tell It Like It Is’? OK, Here You Go.

We are living in strange motherfucking times when Matt Walsh and Glenn Beck represent the sane and principled element of the conservative movement.
