I have been pretty clear about my dislike for so-called “conservative leadership” and much of its thought and thought leaders. I think they are primarily responsible for where we are. If you lose a game, you need to take a good hard look at your team. If you keep losing, it is clear something is inherently wrong. Blaming the other team and engaging in never-ending anger porn about all of the things the other team is doing will not turn the situation around. It is even more embarrassing when you win game after game, but somehow never secure the championship win. Conservatives have won more elections in modern times, but somehow never get a win or even a minimal cut/reduction to any agency. Even the agencies we hate grow their budgets under conservative rule. The last time we had a balanced budget was in the 90s. That isn’t because that was the last conservative congress. We didn’t even have a conservative president when that happened.
Enter George Will. If this guy supporting Biden wasn’t bad enough, he is now in the business of supporting assisted suicide. This is a man who for decades has made millions of dollars off of you. He wrote endless articles and books claiming to fight for your ultimate goals. He has been rewarded handsomely by conservative Americans who have given him patronage. What was his response as soon as you ignored his personal dislike for Trump? Did he say something akin to: “Hey, I have an outsized voice? I fought against this man because I did not think he would be good. I’ll be an adult and go with who my team chose. If he turns out to be as bad as I think, I will say I told you so. If he doesn’t, I will be pleasantly surprised?”
No. His response for the people who gave him his lavish lifestyle was screw you for not listening to me. You’re rubes and schmucks. I am going to help Hillary Clinton and then I will help Joe Biden. And does he take responsibility for the Progressive mess he fought to install in place of Trump? Does he apologize? No. He continues to treat you and anyone else who dared vote for Trump like contemptible swine.
George Will has proven he is nothing more than a pseudo-intellect whose only real skill is having a very fat thesaurus and using it copiously, abundantly, amply, profusely, extensively, teemingly, and lavishly. The greatest gift Donald Trump ever gave us is that he was the closest thing we have had to a colon cleanse as a nation in a very long time. George Will is another one of these hooked-in pieces of dooky that needed a good hard flush to dislodge. People like him are so evidently the reason that nothing has gone swimmingly for over 30 years.
Now he is pushing assisted suicide. If the left-wing blood-libel histories and gender dysphoria/hormones they want to pump your kids with wasn’t enough, now we have pseudo-conservatives pushing assisted suicide. Yeah, let’s open that door for progressives. Progressives totally won’t be wearing shout your suicide shirts. They will keep it only for those who are on the doorstep of death. Progressives certainly won’t expand it to children more than they already do with abortion. Progressives certainly won’t expand it to the depressed or anyone else. Eventually, if we aren’t Kevorkian-ing people with paper cuts, it will be seen as discriminatory and unfair that people’s freedoms and rights are being denied to the Progressive Left. The left totally won’t end up using assisted suicide as a way to get around Roe v. Wade either. Just claim every abortion is an assisted suicide. Yeah, the left totally has the morals and decency to never go there or try that.
So, what are these people conserving? We are a nation that has never had assisted suicide in our entire history. Let’s embrace it now because conservatism! Doctors killing people is medical aid! Reagan! Considering the stupidity of George Will, among other things, putting in his headline that killing people is medical aid, it is clear that Will himself is so braindead that he must be on life support. America is on life support because of people like him. Elites that aren’t so elite. Conservatives that don’t conserve. Thought leaders that neither think nor lead. I mean, some of these people push for medical aid that is neither medical nor aid. Maybe George should give the Kevorkian family a call and get some of that medical aid for himself. It’ll put both him and us out of this misery.Published in
