In a Sunday, Aug. 16, commentary titled “Trump is no Republican,” George Will attempts to baffle people with his intellectual “establishment” rhetoric, encouraging them to deviate, once again from the truth as those interested in political deception typically do.
By the end of the article what I find most interesting in all of his fancy language is Will exposes who he really is.
First, to the title of his article, “Trump is no Republican,” I say, thank God. In his article he tries to convey the things Trump says as so beneath the GOP, like somehow they are so prestigious and so elevated in authority over those who disagree or know better.
As I understand it, George is considered a “Republican conservative” but from his writings it is clear that his definition is as random as those in the rest of the party who don’t adhere to their platform. He disrespectfully reduces Trump to a barroom drunkard, then he uses Trump’s wealth against him — which I find in complete contradiction to those GOP principles of free market prosperity. Then he says Trump changes his position to become a “counterfeit Republican,” when such a statement is so consistent with the party as a whole because few adhere to the platform with any consistency, much less the Constitution.

George then attempts to convince you that William F. Buckley is the foundation of conservatism and the Republican Party and is either ignoring, deceiving or does not realize that Buckley is a self-proclaimed Trotskyite-style Marxist, defined in his own words as his neoconservatism, infiltrated the Republican Party even when the Democrats didn’t want it. It would seem then in Will’s view he hails Marxism as true Republicanism as a now “out of the closet” Marxist, which is more in line with communism rather than Constitutional Republicanism.
Truth be considered, Will may have anger issues like other “establishment Republicans” who don’t realize that many are sick of the assault on American liberty in the name of voting Republican and are rising against the status quo of “establishment control” as they continually move us toward totalitarian control as we attempt to restore liberty.
Trump may be no Republican in the eyes of neoconservatives that don’t know better, but he is more of a Republican to those who have long since abandoned the party when it deviated from its principles. I can guarantee you one thing, he is shaking the core of the long-standing power structure and to that, I salute him even if he doesn’t get my vote.
The problems in this country will not be fixed by voting Republican, or Democrat, they will be fixed by understanding the conspiracy.
From George’s column he clearly appears as a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
