Skip to comments.The Conservative Anti-Trump Club
Posted on 09/09/2015 2:19:13 PM PDT by EveningStar
In my post yesterday about the #NROrevolt Twitter rebellion by restrictionist Donald Trump fans against the pro-restrictionism National Review, I mentioned that there was a rich stream of apoplectically anti-Donald Trump commentary emanating from within the conservative media. I thought it might be useful to catalogue some of the vituperative and often entertaining arguments thus far into one place. (For a previous post on Trump's conservative-media supporters, click here.)
The following list, encompassing neoconservatives, social cons, and libertarian-leaners, includes Bret Stephens, George Will, Glenn Beck, Michael Gerson, Charles C.W. Cooke, Karl Rove, Jonah Goldberg, John Podhoretz, Kevin D. Williamson, Mona Charen, Noah Rothman, Jennifer Rubin, and Max Boot. Those with multiple entries have theirs presented in chronological order. Please leave other suggestions in the comments. Without further ado: ...

I thought the GOP was going to lay on a big “get rid of Trump” effort right after labor day.
I wonder how that’s coming along.
The GOPe likes their cheap labor and fantasies of winning the hispanic vote.
There are others...
I never heard of half of those “conservatives” named.
The author wasn’t trying to make a complete list. :)
One would hope that people would be able to differentiate between those who oppose Trump on conservative principle, and those who oppose Trump because he musses up their conservative/Republican establishment feather beds.
But I won’t hold my breath on that.
All those conservatives mentioned have a vested interest in keeping our country stuck.
Most of those listed are neocons(neoCONS) or Establishment scum.
You know why this article REALLY exists?
Cuz today after the big “screw the Iran deal” rally in DC, the head of Reason tried to get a sound-bite from Trump, and amidst all the frenzied mob, he sorta got dissed:
“Trump, whaddya think of Libertarianism...?”
“Lots of good stuff..!”
“Can you name one thing?”
Come on! The man was freakin MOBBED..! He had 0.001 seconds to give.
BE FAIR, WOW...!!
The list is nothing compared to the crowd of TDS sufferers right here at FR.
Curt interview today cut short for INEVITABLE reasons:
This article is misleading. Karl Rove, George Will, and Michael Gerson are not conservatives. I’m not sure what Glenn Beck is.
It’s not worth the effort because you just don’t get it. Many have tried but your mind has been made up so there’s no use arguing with you.
Yeah. You’re right, of course. I was responding mainly to the headline.
Saturday Night Live spoof of idiot George Will:
Tassel-loafered IDIOT befuddles entire mob of regular baseball fans, “What is the nature of the SOUL..? How many angels can dance on the head of a PIN..?”
“No one has ever explained to me why conservatives should support someone who is liberal, a Democrat, has a track record of anti-conservatism and political opportunism...”
Good one, Nick. You described the GOPe perfectly.
