Mark Levin has, since Christmas, been very clear he is opposed to Trump and was wary of Trump even before that, spending more time praising Cruz. His praises of Trump were mostly on how Trump attacked the media, including the snobs at the Wall Street Journal.
But that Levin has been, for several months now, very vocally against Trump is not enough for the Wall Street Journal, which is attacking Levin for not being sufficiently anti-Trump sooner.
It reminds me of when I uninvited Trump from the RedState Gathering last August. The following Monday’s editorial from the Wall Street Journal attacked me for daring to even give Trump the benefit of the doubt in the first place.
Frankly, this piece today by Bret Stephens is why the Republican coalition probably needs to be burned to the ground. Mark Levin comes out swinging against Trump and the response of Rubio backers is “f–k you for not doing it sooner.”
Way to build up some loyalty and mutual camaraderie in the fight against Trump.
The reality at this point is that Cruz and Rubio will be to blame if Trump gets the nomination, but the Wall Street Journal will never admit that. In the same way they will not admit that their corporatist agenda and repeated attacks on conservatives in the past few years led people down an angry path toward Trump.
That’s true too, but God forbid the Wall Street Journal editorialists hold themselves accountable for it. It’s a lot easier to attack people who’ve come over to their position against Trump.
