What a hoot! The stooges at Rebane’s Ruminations were played for stooges by “their” President (AKA The Donald). For 1 1/2 days, the blog and its loud-mouthed disciples (all six of them) have steadfastly defended Trump’s ill-informed policy to separate children from their parents at the border.
But this afternoon — much to their chagrin — President Trump retreated after a border policy outcry, eating crow on national television. He conceded that his wife and daughter were outraged, along with other First Ladies, oh, and millions of other Americans. Duh!
About 200 comments later, including multiple misspellings of “border” (yep, 200 comments), The Donald left his defenders over on Rebane’s Ruminations out in the cold. They were defending the indefensible. I guess The Donald proved he also was “a light thinking conservative” (to borrow Rebane’s phrase). ROFLOL.
Rebane wrote in his typical nasty tone: “Today, as part and parcel of the spread of national dumbth, progressives (and even some light thinking conservatives) are hyperventilating about Trump having invented a new policy for ripping children from the loving arms of parents who really did nothing wrong other than leave their shithole country, illegally transit other benign countries, and sneak across our border to live the American dream. All they want is asylum, jobs and/or US govt checks, and amnesty.”
Russ Steele, George’s longtime political sidekick, wondered what the fuss was all about, citing the ultra-conservative Washington Times: “Unlike the congressional outcry over President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy targeting illegal immigration, there has been no mass protest of or investigation into the separation of children from those in jail,” he rationalized.
“Fish” seemed to suggest that allowing children to be with their parents is was somehow “insipid moral preening,” as Paul Emery pointed out. “Fish,” a real piece of work, is an out-of-towner who shares the wingnut blog’s views. The locals are his “pen pals.” And he seems to have A LOT of spare time on his hands, even in the full-employment economy.
Todd Juvinall agreed with majority of the comments and took it a step further: “All the child porn abusers and the porn industry are democrats.”
Bill Tozer struck a professorial tone: “Q: What is the big difference between then and now? What is the difference since ‘I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” was inscribed on the Statue of Liberty?
A: Welfare. Welfare is now not just the lamp besides the golden door, welfare is the golden door.”
And who can forget Don Bessee? He toed the line: “We now care for them. We have high standards. We give them meals, we give them education, we give them medical care.”
“All the world’s a stooge” on Rebane’s Ruminations!
