The media loves using RINO’s to help spread their Left-wing message.
And George W. Bush is there to do the job whenever they need it.
Now, Bush is attacking conservatives and Trump supporters, and it’s causing a firestorm of controversy.
The Bush family’s disregard for freedom and conservatism has been going on for decades.
As President, George W. Bush increased the size and intrusiveness of government more than nearly any President in American history, except for maybe Woodrow Wilson.
He created the largest spy state the world has ever known after 9/11, using the attacks as an excuse to spy on hundreds of millions of innocent Americans.
He flushed trillions of dollars down the toilet on Middle Eastern wars that accomplished virtually nothing, and more importantly led to the deaths of thousands of America’s bravest patriots.
He also spent taxpayer money recklessly, on costly and ineffective schemes like No Child Left Behind and Medicare Part D.
Since he left office, he’s been relatively quiet. But he revealed his true feelings in an interview with NBC’s Today Show.
“I would describe (the Republican Party) as isolationist, protectionist, and to a certain extent, nativist.”
He then went on to call for more gun control and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
The Left and the media, of course, were thrilled with his comments.
But they don’t come as a surprise. In fact, Bush’s comments are part of a much larger trend of neocon warmonger Republicans migrating to the Democratic Party, after seeing the conservative base embrace America First.
As journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted in March, “(Donald Trump) is one of the major reasons neocons have migrated back to the Democratic Party. They were already doing so pre-Trump — the success of Ron Paul’s movement showed the GOP non-interventionist streak was growing — but they saw that their agenda is much better served by Dems.”
The evidence for this is vast. Whether it be media pundits like Jennifer Rubin, Bill Kristol, and David Frum, or pro-war lawmakers like Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney (who are still both technically Republicans, but have stronger ties to the Democratic Party), the George W. Bush wing of the party has gone hard to the Left.
Bush himself did not reveal who he voted for in the 2020 election. But his father, George H.W. Bush, admitted to voting for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And many of Bush’s allies, such as John Kasich or Cindy McCain, enthusiastically endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Looking at the circumstantial evidence, it seems quite clear who Bush likely supported.
The neocon wing of the party, however, is making a play to try to take back the GOP from the America First wing.
Liz Cheney has been reported to have an interest in eventually becoming Speaker of the House. Neocon Republicans are very excited about the 2024 candidacies of war hawks like Nikki Haley, Tom Cotton, and Mike Pompeo.
And Bush himself expressed hopefulness that the 2024 Republican nominee would be a RINO like him.
The battle for the soul of the Republican Party is on, and voters will have to decide who they want to elect – America Firsters who support the Constitution? Or neocons who want bigger government, less freedom, and more wars?
