The Flaw in Criticisms of Trump

Bitter Cruzinger Dave over at MoonBattery is just the latest to make wild assumptions of those stupid Trump supporters:

Trump’s Authoritarian Appeal
He may be running for dictator, but as of yet that office does not exist in America.

But Trump would move us a big step closer to the day it does exist. For his most devoted supporters, that’s his appeal.
I wasn't a "devoted" Trump supporter until the Bitter Cruzingers lathered their hatred over Trump and his supporters.  They are only a few of the Senator Cruz supporters, and the only ones who are vocal.  And they bitterly cling to a candidate who can't get better than 20% of the vote even when he has nine hours a day of talk radio in his corner (Rush, Levin, and Beck).  They detract from the positive qualities of their candidate - making it harder for that candidate to gain traction.

They behave just like the liberals that I've been challenging for almost 10 years here at Ushanka.  They blather and stammer and feeeeel.  They accuse, assume and draw concludes on flimsy premises.  It is no surprise that Glenn Beck is one of them, and it will be no surprise when they follow Glenn further into the darkness of despair if Trump continues to win.

I've explained my reason for Trump - here.  Dave, nor any of the other Bitter Cruzingers who continue to ask, "Why do you support Trump?" have linked to my post.  There is a reason.

They. Do. Not. Want. An. Answer. 

Their questions are not questions.  They are making statements that happen to end with a question mark.

The Flaw:

Dave says the wall won't happen. The deportations won't happen.  The blocking of Muslim immigration won't happen.  This shows the flaw in the Bitter Cruzinger movement:  He doesn't explain why these things won't happen.  You're a blogger Dave.  You only have the credibility of today at hand.  You need to support your conclusions, or say goodbye to that credibility.

Let me show you.  Let me use the same prediction of Cruz as they do Trump.  But I will do something they don't do.  I will apply the candidate's past to support my argument.  To criticize Cruz, his past will explain the "why?"

Cruz has promised to abolish the IRS.  He won't, and here is why:  He has never accomplished anything as an elected official, and that will continue into the white house because he lacks the leadership qualities necessary to succeed..  The only time he took an independent stand as a Senator was his failed filibuster.  He failed to change one vote in the Senate.  He failed to stop the legislation.  He failed.

If elected, it is safe to assume he will demand of Congress: abolish the IRS.  Then he will beg.  He will filibuster from the bully pulpit.  He'll put on a good show!  Maybe he'll read Atlas Shrugged again.  And when they say "no" for the last time, he will pout and disappear.  Just like he did after his filibuster.  Later, in four years, he'll tell us he needs another term to "finish the job."

As to the "dictator" bullshit Dave is peddling, enough is enough.  You Bitter Cruzingers need to get a grip.  Nobody has said they want a dictator - except the voices in your heads.  Either give an honest representation of the Trump supporters and their reasons, then pick our support apart.  Or, stop all together. 

Because, if this continues, I can no longer treat you as an equal.  That I cannot do.

How the establishment will now try to steal the nomination from Donald Trump
Warning to the Trumpets. It ain’t over. It is just beginning.
Below are a list of tactics that Establishment Republicans may use to block the nomination of Donald Trump.  Yes, I know. If they succeed they will not win the White House but many in the establishment will make just as much money under a Democrat insider as they will with a Republican insider. So they may not care.
All they may want to do is send the message to any future “outsider” candidate, “This is our party and you need our approval to participate. If you try to do this without us we will destroy you.”
These tactics were used in 2012 to keep Libertarian insurgents from winning delegates to the Republican National Convention. The fear was that Ron Paul would be able to place his name in nomination and give a speech about capital cronyism and how big corporations use the system to corrupt free enterprise. Donald Trump can learn from our experience.

I do like a good political joke though.

Donald Trump answers the question: What is 2+2?

"I have to say a lot of people have been asking this question. No, really. A lot of people come up to me and they ask me. They say, 'What's 2+2'? And I tell them look, we know what 2+2 is. We've had almost eight years of the worst kind of math you can imagine. Oh my God, I can't believe it. Addition and subtraction of the 1s the 2s and the 3s. It's terrible. It's just terrible. Look, if you want to know what 2+2 is, do you want to know what 2+2 is? I'll tell you. First of all the number 2, by the way, I love the number 2. It's probably my favorite number, no it is my favorite number. You know what, it's probably more like the number two but with a lot of zeros behind it. A lot. If I'm being honest, I mean, if I'm being honest. I like a lot of zeros. Except for Marco Rubio, now he's a zero that I don't like. Though, I probably shouldn't say that. He's a nice guy but he's like, '10101000101,' on and on, like that. He's like a computer! You know what I mean? He's like a computer. I don't know. I mean, you know. So, we have all these numbers, and we can add them and subtract them and add them. TIMES them even. Did you know that? We can times them OR divide them, they don't tell you that, and I'll tell you, no one is better at the order of operations than me. You wouldn't believe it. So, we're gonna be the best on 2+2, believe me."

Thanks sth_txs. Good blog post you linked to - I'll link to that here soon.

I've been ignoring (avoiding?) this topic but we need to watch our six with those who have a lot to lose. Those who like the bar set low where they can see it and hate those who practice and preach by a higher bar. Those who don't hesitate to change the rules of the game at the 2-minute warning.
