  • The Neocons and The Dems Re-Unite

    It seems that the Neocons have cozied up to their former spouse, the Democrat Party. After ruining the GOP, the spineless chicken-hawks have decided to leave and go back to their ex. See, the GOP voters picked Trump, that means no room for the Neocon bastards any more. We here in flyover country are sick and tired of sending our kids to go fight and die in ideological driven and quite endless wars that have NO national interest worth spilling blood and spending treasure over.

    But Democrats and neocons share far more than revulsion toward Trump; particularly once Hillary Clinton became the party’s standard-bearer, they share the same fundamental beliefs about the U.S. role in the world and how to assert U.S. power. In other words, this alliance is explained by far more than antipathy to Trump.

    Indeed, the likelihood of a neocon/Democrat reunion long predates Trump. Back in the summer of 2014 — almost a year before Trump announced his intent to run for president — longtime neocon-watcher Jacob Heilbrunn, writing in the New York Times, predicted that “the neocons may be preparing a more brazen feat: aligning themselves with Hillary Rodham Clinton and her nascent presidential campaign, in a bid to return to the driver’s seat of American foreign policy….

    One sees this same dynamic repeated with many other of the world’s most militaristic, war-loving neocons. Particularly after his recent argument with Tucker Carlson over Russia, Democrats have practically canonized Max Boot, who has literally cheered for every possible war over the two past decades and, in 2013, wrote a column titled “No Need to Repent for Support of Iraq War.” It is now common to see Democratic pundits and office holders even favorably citing and praising Bill Kristol himself.

    There’s certainly nothing wrong with discrete agreement on a particular issue with someone of a different party or ideology; that’s to be encouraged. But what’s going on here goes far, far beyond that.

    What we see instead are leading Democratic foreign policy experts joining hands with the world’s worst neocons to form new, broad-based policy advocacy groups to re-shape U.S. foreign policy toward a more hostile, belligerent and hawkish posture. We see not isolated agreement with neocons in opposition to Trump or on single-issue debates, but a full-scale embrace of them that is rehabilitating their standing, empowering their worst elements, and reintegrating them back into the Democratic Party power structure.

    If Bill Kristol and Mike Chertoff can now sit on boards with top Clinton and Obama policy advisers, as they’re doing, that is reflective of much more than a marriage of convenience to stop an authoritarian, reckless president. It demonstrates widespread agreement on a broast range of issues and, more significantly, the return of neocons to full-scale D.C. respectability, riding all the way on the backs of eager, grateful establishment Democrats.”

    Yeah, I just checked, Max Boot has no military creds and was educated at Berkley. Real brave there Max…real brave.

    Thankfully, the re-alignment of the GOP is happening faster than even I would hope for! Good riddance Neocon scum. I’ll trade one smug, beta-male, non-veteran chicken-hawk like Bill Krystol and Max Boot for real Patriots like a Joe the Coal miner and a Bob the Electrician any day. Let the Realignment continue!
