Electing Donald Trump was the Alt-Right’s Plan A.
It was a plan that the Alt-Right stuck with until October 8. That was the day of the #NeverTrump coup in which 1/3 of the Republican Senate – led by the Mormon traitor Sen. Mike Lee – stabbed Donald Trump in the back.
Instantly, I suspected the damage would likely be fatal because the dog piling had a far greater impact in roiling the news cycle. #NeverTrump had taken a minor scandal which the polls had shown was having little impact on Trump’s voters and used it as their cover to launch their nukes. They succeeded in panicking Senate and House Republicans who in turn panicked all the cucked suburban voters.
Trump, of course, couldn’t stand idly by while 1/3 of the Republican Senate and 1/4 of all elected Republicans publicly stabbed him in the back 30 days out from the election. He had signed the RNC loyalty pledge. He had let Ted Cruz spit in his face at the Republican Convention. In the name of party unity, Reince had convinced him to endorse Paul Ryan, John McCain, Kelly Ayotte and all other Republicans.
Like The Snake in the famous video, Mitt Romney and his fellow Mormon Sen. Mike Lee had repaid Trump’s loyalty and support for them with a vicious bite. It was an unprecedented betrayal. They launched a nuclear first strike on his candidacy and left him with little choice but to retaliate. That’s exactly what has played out over the last few days.
After Trump won the Republican nomination, the Alt-Right knew there were only going to be two outcomes. Either Trump would win the presidency and would advance our agenda or failing that he would succumb to infighting which would be so divisive that it would destroy the Republican Party. It was a win-win scenario.
Most of us expected the infighting would play itself out after the election. Why launch a #NeverTrump coup 30 days out from the election? The Free The Delegates coup had failed and there was no “brokered convention.” Voting had already begun and it is simply too late to replace Trump. Stabbing Trump in the back at this point could only have one outcome: the collapse of the Republican Party BEFORE THE ELECTION.
That’s the scorched earth landscape we have entered since last week. Since Trump doesn’t seem to have much of a chance to win at this point (after #NeverTrump split the party to sink our candidate), the Alt-Right has little choice but to make a strategic pivot to Plan B, which is maximizing the damage to the Republican Party.
We have to fight fire with fire and change the political calculus. Two can play these #Never games. We have to make it clear to the Republican Party – specifically, to the MONEY behind the Republican Party – that as long as this #NeverTrump crap rolls on that #NeverDownballot will be our response. Walk into your voting booth, vote only for Trump, and either vote against or leave blank the space on your ballot for anyone who is #NeverTrump. Personally, I am voting for Martha Roby’s Democratic opponent in Alabama’s 2nd District.
After what these backstabbing traitors did to Trump on Saturday, we don’t have any reason to vote for the likes of Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, John McCain or Kelly Ayotte. We’ve got to send a message to the GOP establishment that #NeverTrump will cost them our support on the #NeverTrump down ballot. When they realize that #neverTrump will cost them the Senate, the House, and much else besides, the MONEY will snuff it out.
