We are at the point where it is imperative that conservatives deploy any and all possible tactics to derail the vile circus sideshow that sits atop most GOP presidential primary polling. Trump himself may well actually be shameless—though he certainly gets easily flustered in debate formats when forced to talk about anything remotely substantive. What we are less sure about is how shameless the narcissistic fraudster’s kneel-before-Zod opportunistic acolytes are.
Conservatives should do everything they can to publicly shame Trump’s noteworthy campaign surrogates. Call them out for their unrepentant opportunism and treachery to the conservative cause. Write to them. Tweet to them. Repeatedly dial their congressional/gubernatorial office phone lines to express your dissatisfaction. Rant about their betrayals in your blog posts. Directly impute to them Trump’s vulgarity and conman-style chicanery. Where applicable, primary them.
It is incumbent upon New Jersey conservatives to make sure Gov. Chris Christie feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon Alabama conservatives to make sure Sen. Jeff Sessions feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon Massachusetts/New Hampshire conservatives to make sure former Sen. Scott Brown feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon Maine conservatives to make sure Gov. Paul LePage feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon San Diego conservatives to make sure Rep. Duncan Hunter feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon Arizona conservatives to make sure former Gov. Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio feel your wrath.
It is incumbent upon the tiny handful of conservatives who still support turncoat former Gov. Sarah Palin to make sure she feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon remaining conservative/evangelical supporters of Jerry Falwell, Jr. to make sure he feels your wrath.
It is incumbent upon Aaron Carter’s non-existent tween fanbase to make sure he feels your wrath. (OK, that one might be a stretch.)
These people are all traitors—yes, traitors—to the conservative movement, assuming they were ever dutiful conservative foot soldiers in the first place. They are flagrant opportunists who should be publicly shamed, embarrassed, and made to feel guilty. Make sure they hear you, that they know you have lost all respect for them, and that they get the message that this is not acceptable. They are now directly complicit in nothing less than the attempted slaying of the Republican Party—and arguably the post-William F. Buckley, Jr. conservative movement itself.
