“I began to be bothered by the hatred that was building up against Trump from my soon to be new set of ex-friends. It really disgusted me. I just thought it had no objective correlative… They called them dishonorable, or opportunists, or cowards—and this was done by people like Bret Stephens, Bill Kristol, and various others. And I took offense at that. So that inclined me to what I then became: anti-anti-Trump. By the time he finally won the nomination, I was sliding into a pro-Trump position, which has grown stronger and more passionate as time has gone on.”
–Norman, explaining the Kook-Aid
Ah Podhoretz Pere: their hatred for his hatred makes for your hatred–what a perfect explanation of Trumpism. Small wonder that the daily dump of disinformation, inanities, cruelties, incompetence, and treasonous blather from the Big Cheeto doesn’t bother Poddy and the Trumpkins in the least–as long as the left is wildly pissed off we’ll go on burning down the country, sacrificing human lives, praising our enemies and spitting in the shrimp dip.
