Last week it was Ann Coulter. This week we have a blogger for the Washington Post. Although not a bastion of conservative thought, the Post does provide, at least in it’s political blog section, a token “right winger” to offer “reported opinion from a conservative perspective.” And the Post’s conservative of choice is Jennifer Rubin.
In her political “Ups and Downs” section of her “Right Turn” blog on July 28, she takes a shot at Senator Chris McDaniel:
Up: Republicans who realize Chris McDaniel has loose screws.
Down: Evidence of “fraud” in Mississippi GOP primary.
So anyone who is concerned about sham elections, vote-buying, and vote-stealing, and wants to ensure the people have honest and fair elections, has loose screws?
But if we take just a small peek at Rubin’s career you will quickly discover who has the loose screws.
The Jewish Rubin is now a self-described neoconservative (and we true conservatives all know what that really means) who was once a practicing attorney in Hollywood. While on the Left Coast, she fought hard for all the great conservative causes out there, oh like say her fierce representation of the unions and her work on labor issues.
And, let’s not overlook her work on behalf of the Democratic Party. Yes, she used to be a Democrat (and probably still is at heart) … in Hollywood, no less!
Steve Hulett was president of the Animation Guild from 2000 to 2005, a labor union representing animation and visual effects artists, and knew Rubin in those days. He told Media Matters that her politics were those of a mainstream California Democrat, at least before her move to northern Virginia in 2005.
“She talked like a straight-ahead Hollywood liberal. We used to chew the fat all the time in her office and over at lunch at Café del Sol near Dreamworks. She supported Kerry in 2004 and worked closely with [Jeffrey] Katzenberg, who is a big time Democratic donor. I didn’t know what to think when she moved east and started blogging like mad as a conservative. I don’t know if it’s a marketing pose, or if she really believes it, or what. But it is odd.”
Odd indeed but by no means the exception. This is what passes for conservatism in today’s Republican Party, former liberals who now call themselves “neoconservatives.” The party is full of them, particularly in the leadership, and, as Senator McDaniel has said, it is an element that needs to be purged.
She also has little understanding of the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. Constitutional scholar Bruce Fein recently blow-torchered her understanding of America’s traditional foreign policy in a piece in The Daily Caller recently, accusing her of seeking “to destroy the American Republic born of Paul Revere’s immortalized midnight ride in favor of an Empire reminiscent of King George III’s.”
From all this, it should be evident why Ms. Rubin lashes out at McDaniel for seeking a fair election system. Liberal Democrats (and Leftist Establishment Republicans) don’t want a clean, honest system where everyone gets one vote. They love corruption and vote manipulation, which is the best way they have found to keep true conservatives out of office.
But what else is driving all the continual attacks on Chris McDaniel? If he really is a nut, a clown, and has a few loose screws, why is the establishment spending so much time smearing him in the press? Shouldn’t they just ignore him and let him make a fool of himself?
They can’t. Why? In one word: Fear.
Chris McDaniel is a real conservative, in the mold of Goldwater, Reagan, and Ted Cruz, who believes in the Constitution and the ideals of America’s founding. He is intelligent, articulate, and has the right look to climb higher on the political ladder. This is a thought, at least for them, that is too terrible to contemplate.
The Establishment, with its Democratic and Republican wings, is fanatical about keeping conservative statesmen out of Washington, so much so that they are now teaming up to stop them, a development we better start recognizing soon.
The more true conservatives they can smear and publicly destroy, the more will stay home and leave the government (and the treasury) in their hands.
This battle in Mississippi is not just about Chris McDaniel being in the United States Senate, although we believe he deserves to be there; it is about fair elections and a government free of corruption. If McDaniel is proven right, their corrupt system comes crashing down, and they know it.
Those in the media are trying their best to compel him to release his evidence. But no good lawyer, or card player for that matter, would ever tip his hand and reveal his cards before the proper time to do so. Perhaps that’s why Rubin no longer practices law. She wasn’t any good at it. But Chris McDaniel is.
And when Senator McDaniel does file his challenge, and release his evidence, it’s media types like Rubin, and a bunch in Mississippi, who are going to be eating a big ole crap sandwich!
Thank God we finally have someone like Chris McDaniel who is willing to stand up and fight back against the Establishment, rather than lay down like we have done so many times in the past. Every true American patriot should join him. If we don’t stop this now, our republic is lost forever.
