When did Rush become a Progressive? Or has he always been a Progressive and it’s just now starting to show? Why do I ask? Well, for more than 20 years now, I have heard Rush ‘claim’ he is a ‘conservative,’ which Donald Trump is not, but then today, I heard Rush defend Trump’s tax plan as though it had come straight from Ronald Reagan. I have seen this dance before. When the TEA Party first came out, Rush was against it. he says he wasn’t, but you should be able to find my old posts here, and had the local paper kept their forum, you’d find them on the News Herald detailing where Rush was originally against the TEA Party — because it threatened the Party. Now, even though Trump is against everything he claims to believe, Rush is actually defending Trump, Why? I don’t know. All I know is that it sure smacks of someone who values Party uber alles. And when the Party matters more than anything else, you cannot claim to have any values or principles other than the Party. And when you value the Party first, by definition, you are either against the nation or you think the Party is the nation. Either way, I think Rush is walking the thin line between what he claims to be and fascism.
But then, I am sure many will agree with Rush: we have to get more Beohners and McConnels in office before we can change things, so vote Trump now and we’ll fix it later. Just get the win!
