Over at her website today, my friend Diana West published an essay on an issue with which I never thought she’d have to deal. With the growing public support for Donald Trump’s detailed plan to deal with our nation’s life-threatening immigration problem, there is a collective broad-based panic-stricken “conservative” journalistic stampede in progress – toward the most vulgar and pornographic rhetoric.
It’s a function of full-blown terror, caused by the fact that everything the press corps and broadcast media outlets have done to sink Donald Trump and wipe him out of contention for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination has failed. People must be pulling their hair out in abject frustration. They’ve not been able to stop him. And the shell-shock is taking its toll.
Here’s how bad it has gotten. CNN contributor and Republican Strategist Rick Wilson published a Twitter post directed at conservative author and Trump supporter Ann Coulter, strongly inferring that she is a hooker, a prostitute – and asking if Donald Trump pays her extra for anal sex. There is a whole lot of this kind of “conservative” journalistic excrement slinging going on. Diana West has done a fine job of compiling it in her essay. Send the kids somewhere else if you’re going to read it.
If you read the Breitbart column, you will see that Wilson tried to backpedal and apologized in several subsequent Tweets – but not to Ann Coulter and not to Donald Trump. He apologized only to his friends and followers, of which I am not one.
The panic which is now voraciously gnawing at the innards of America’s mainstream press corps is the source of such stuff. This is, after all, a campaign for the nomination of the GOP candidate for the office of President of The United States of America. For the rhetoric to have sunken to the level of pornographic inferences as weapons to use in stopping Donald Trump, and insulting the likes of Ann Coulter, does not bode well for what awaits us as the campaign unfolds.
This is really getting ugly. And, as Diana points out in her column, many of these so-called pundits who have gone to the sewer for material do not hesitate to lecture about civility and decorum in political discourse.
Meanwhile, as President Obama continues to violate his oath of office by refusing to enforce our immigration laws, the Mexican border remains wide open – and illegal aliens continue to pour into our nation by the thousands.
