Some Conservative Writer named George Will

Recommended Posts

Some conservative political commentator who has written for the Washington Post, since 1974.

He was on Fox News as a commentator for several years until one day he quit because of Trump.

Now he comes on MSNBC, as a guest commentator. 

But he stays the same. He's never changed.

To me that's okay, he should state what he believes, 

but he never talks about the divide in this country much.

He never talks about what party helped to contrive the divide, not ever.

He likes baseball, he talks about three strikes, the game is about great pitchers, 

and how they can rattle any hitter. 

If you got two strikes against you because of tax cuts for the rich 

that never grew the middle class, you are still in the batters box,

waiting for another pitch. 

The batter hits a high major league pop up and the catcher misses it because

it is just near the edge of all the people sitting their with front row seats, and because

of the sun in his eyes, he somehow fails to make the catch.

It's another foul ball, and its a three two pitch.

The odds are there are going to be a couple more foul balls, and then,

either a walk, or a hit. 

What about Obama's last pick for the supreme court?

What about that George Will?

 

What about the divide in this country and all the people who helped sew it?

 

George you're a good writer, but what do you know about economics?

 

Talk to the people George about climate changed caused by humans dependents on fossil fuel.

Talk about all the people who don't have healthcare, or about the problems with illegal immigration. 

 

Who made up the lie about open borders George? 

Who made up the lies about the ACA George?

 

You left Fox because you find Trump unconscionable, that a news source would support a president who was inept, what about

the party that still supports him. 

 

Why did they do that when you still supported them long ago, what the hell did you ever really truly stand for?

I don't think you know too much about baseball either. I guess.

Oh come on George...You never were an athlete, son.

 

Peace!

I looked it up with that newfangled Googly-thingie:

Conservatives think that George Will wants open borders. He does want more immigration.

George Will left the Republican Party because of its adherence to Trump.

Here's what's important in all this:

George Will's enemy is my enemy: anti-intellectualism, anti-science, rule by thuggery.

George Will is an intelligent and intellectual conservative; and I usually disagree with him.  But he follows the rules of discourse. He understands a contradiction and he he knows when something is a shameful lie. You can talk to a person like that, and maybe convince them of half of what you believe, maybe 25% of the time.

 

Every country needs at least two intelligent sides. When intelligence is lost in public debate, you have thuggery. Upon that, both George Will and I agree.

True, George Will is intelligent. But until Trump was elected he did say much about a lot of the other trashy things the Republicans have done in the last thirty years.

Look, I didn't like it when Russia meddled in our presidential election. But they just augmented what the Republican Party has been doing for years. 

But sure, we do need people to talk intelligently no matter what ideology they adhere to. Talk intelligently and adhere to the facts. We need that big time.

 

Peace!

So like I said, I don't agree with George Will on much. But here is what he wrote on Trump. Take it as 'even George f***in' Will'.

 

"I believe that what this president has done to our culture, to our civic discourse ... you cannot unring these bells and you cannot unsay what he has said, and you cannot change that he has now in a very short time made it seem normal for schoolboy taunts and obvious lies to be spun out in a constant stream. I think this will do more lasting damage than Richard Nixon's surreptitious burglaries did."
