The Dangerous Ignorance of the Trump Movement

I've been confronted with antisemitism from trump supporters to a greater degree than with other republican voters. It concerns me that trump is bringing these people into the party and giving them disproportionate power. Trump voters are generally not conservative, they are nationalists, particularly white nationalists and populists. These used to be the fringe, now it's conservatives who are the fringe of the GOP.

I don't know how Ted Cruz was viewed as part of the establishment. He stood on the Senate floor calling members of his own part, liars for renaging on their promises. He filibustered to try to stop obamacare with no backup from fellow GOPers.  OTOH, trump is more RINO than the politicians republican voters have been complaining about. Worse than that, he actually donated to democrats: Pelosi, Reid, Schumer etc. How he fooled so many into believing he's an anti-establishment outsider is beyond me. He's spent a lifetime cultivating relationships in DC.

As for people being tired of apology tours and other countries telling us what to do, Ted Cruz would have been much better. Cruz doesn't have business interests abroad. For all of his jingoistic posturing and pandering, Trump  has his products made in China.

Trump's has higher negativity ratings than Hillary.

I know people aren't going to like this, but it would be better for conservatives and the long term future of this nation if Hillary beats trump. If not, then conservatives will be marginalized with having no influence. Both major parties will be on the left to one degree or another. For America to survive as we know it, will take conservative policies.

Maybe the explanation for the trump phenomenon is the most obvious. Trump voters really are stupid, gullible, caught up in a cult of personality and angry to the point of being irrational.

I've tried to drive the point home that trump is part of the DC establishment, part of the corruption and cronyism, to no avail. His followers are immovable, like a creepy cult.

The Trump Cult

And what's with this creepy idea of pledging loyalty to Trump? In America, we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands. Taking loyalty oaths to leaders is fascism, not Americanism.

Hannity and Fake "Conservative" Pundits

What are conservative principles compared with exclusive membership to Mar a Lago. Any genuine  conservative still listening to Hannity is a fool. He doesn't care about your issues, only in his elite lifestyle and maintaining his elitist circle of acquaintances, such as Trump of course.

The Illogic of Voting for Trump

Where is the logic in expressing your anger at the republican establishment by nominating someone even more RINO than they are? Worse than being RINO, trump donated to democrats. Excuse me for failing to make sense of this and not being able to unite behind a left wing GOP.
