The Bulwark: Why This Pro-Life Conservative Is Voting for Biden

Mona Charen, a life-long conservative explains her support for Biden. Or better yet, why she is NOT supporting Trump or the GOP this election.

Her take-down of today’s GOP is quite telling.

“It is the Republican party that has officially become a personality cult, declaring that it will not adopt a platform but will simply follow whatever Trump dictates. It is the Republican party that pretends that COVID-19 will magically disappear. It is the Republican party that has elevated a series of criminals and grifters including Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Roy Moore, Steve Bannon, Wayne LaPierre, Rudy Giuliani, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Roger Stone. It is the Republican party that shamefully declined to uphold the Constitution when Trump diverted funds to his border wall. It is the Republican party that has become truth-optional. And it is the Republican party that now opens its arms to adherents of a deranged but nonetheless dangerous new cult called QAnon, which a (defeated) Republican called “mental gonorrhea,” and which in December, 2016, inspired a man to open fire in a pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., as part of a “self investigation.” The FBI has designated QAnon a domestic terror threat, yet minority leader Kevin McCarthy has committed to providing committee assignments to Marjorie Taylor Greene, should she be elected in November

There is putrefaction where the Republican party’s essence should be”…

    QAnon didn’t exist in 2016. Ms. Charen is getting sloppy.

    1. As we know it today, no. But it’s basis was started during the Presidential campaign in 2016.

      Funny how you focused on THAT and not the rest of the story. Oh, wait. Because Charen used 2016 she is now completely unreliable and nothing she says matters.

      Got IT!

    2. Pizza gate was a conspiracy about a cabal of satan worshippers that trafficked children for sex. They were also Democrats and, of course, Jewish bankers, etc.

      Ancient crap that has followed conspiracies about Jews and blood libel.

      Q-Anon continues the same drivel almost to a “T”. So I would say Ms. Charen is pretty accurate even if the exact nomenclature is imperfect.

      That Q and it’s followers has become acceptable to our president (to paraphrase Trump, “they care about our country and like me”) just amazes and concerns me.

      That Congress will have a GOP member who believes that belies the right wing punditry that liberalism is a mental illness.

    3. So “No Comment” from the superior, immune to craziness, Mr. Roberts concerning:

      1) The GOP has become a “personality cult”.
      2) No 2020 platform, just stated fealty to Trump
      3) COVID will “magically disappear”
      4) The party of criminals and grifters
      5) failed to uphold the Constitution by allowing Trump to unconstitutionally transfer funds for a border wall that he could not get Congress, who holds the “power of the purse” to provide .
      6) OPENLY embraces candidates that promote conspiracy theories that, if a Democrat would do the same they would scream for exclusion, not committee seats. (Yeah, I know YOU have no problem with it because you are just as guilty of the same)

      Only “QAnon didn’t exist in 2016.”

  2. I’m a life long Democrat but am voting for Trump because the Democratic party has become a far left wing extremist cult of progressive insanity towards anything domestic or economic. In addition, they want open borders, police free cities and extreme socialism. They can’t grasp math when promising all of their lackies free stuff and are quite frankly pathetic race baiting imbeciles. There, that was easy.

    1. I have a difficult time believing that you are a “life long Democrat”. But I will take you at your word… for now.

      There are extremists in BOTH parties. If you deny that, you might as well deny EVERYTHING else you may believe. But Biden is NOT beholden to the extremists on the let. He has stated an actual plan and agenda, which is a lot closer to centrism than anything the GOP has come up with.

      Oh, wait. The GOP’s 2016 platform is basically “If Trump says it, that is our platform.”

      Biden has not called for open borders. He does and has previously supported actual immigration reform.

      He has stated SEVERAL times that “Defund the Police” is NOT an option. He does want reforms and changes to improve policing, not eliminate it. He has also REPEATEDLY and FORCEFULLY condemned the violence that has broken out during originally peaceful protests.

      Extreme socialism is the only battle cry the GOP has and you are falling for it hook line and sinker. An expansion of the ACA is NOT “extreme socialism”.

      You would actually realize these things if you got out of the Fox/Brietbrat/ Trump bubble and see what Biden is actually saying and proposing.

      And I have decided to throw the bullshit flag on your “life long Democrat” declaration. If you were you would understand the dog whistles and not deny them.

        1. Too much for you to handle, apparently. You can’t answer the question, then don’t just rant on and on and on and on, like A trump speech. Lotsa words that says NOTHING. Or are 90% bullshit and 10% fertilizer.

    2. “In addition, they want open borders, police free cities and extreme socialism.”

      The only person of note in politics in America that wanted open borders was Ronald Reagan.

      The claims you made are not the goals of the Democratic Party or the Biden campaign.

      1. Apparently you don’t listen to the Democratic party as a whole. Biden only says what you want to hear to get elected then it’s time to do the bidding of the party. Here’s your BS flag…

        1. Apparently, YOU don’t listen to anyone but Trump, Fox heads, Breitbart, and the voices in your head.

          Accusing Democrats of pandering to get votes is the most disingenuous thing you could say. How about Trump’s naturalization ceremony during the RNC? And those folks had no idea they would be part of it? and trotting out 2 of the very few Black Americans who believe in him? Or faux pardons o flow level drug offenders? Oh,wait. He pardoned a convicted bank robber who did his time and hten di a lot of good workto assist prisoners when they get out of prison. Obama commuted more sentences of low lever offenders in 3 months than Trump has in 3 plus years.

          No, only Democrats say what you want to hear to get votes. Delusion they name is BOB.

          Biden will carry a lot more sway than you want to give him credit for. He is no Trojan horse or puppet. He understands how to govern. Trump can’t even spell it.

  3. A good read and she pretty much nails the total rancid stench that has taken over the Republicans in this country who choose to support the Trump guy. I particularly liked the finish:

    “There is putrefaction where the Republican party’s essence should be, and appointing pro-life judges cannot mask the stench. So this conservative is voting for the Democrats. Will the GOP reform? I hope so. But my priority isn’t trying to heal the Republican party. It’s trying to heal the country.”
