Triumph of the Will

“Conservative” Never Trumper George Will wins the final victory over himself.

January 11, 2019 Lloyd Billingsley

“In one of contemporary history’s intriguing caroms, European politics just now is a story of how one decision by a pastor’s dutiful daughter has made life miserable for a vicar’s dutiful daughter. Two of the world’s most important conservative parties are involved in an unintended tutorial on a cardinal tenet of conservatism, the law of unintended consequences, which is that the unintended consequences of decisions in complex social situations are often larger than, and contrary to, those intended.”

That’s the elephantine lead of George Will’s recent column, headlined Today’s Germany is the best Germany the world has seen.” The real story comes way down in paragraph six, where Will explains: “No European nation was as enchanted as Germany was by Barack Obama’s studied elegance and none is more repelled by Donald Trump’s visceral vulgarity.”............
  • In 2009, one of Obama’s first acts was to cancel missile defense for U.S. allies Poland and the Czech Republic, both victims of Soviet occupation.
  • Nidal Hassan gunned down 13 unarmed American soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, and wounded more than 30 others [Obama] called this “workplace violence”.......
  • In a deep recession, the president bulked up an already bloated federal government and told Americans if they liked their  health plan they could keep it...
  • The president cracked down on journalists such as Sharyl Attkisson and James Rosen and deployed the IRS against conservative groups.
  • He deployed powerful forces in the FBI and DOJ to clear his chosen successor Hillary Clinton and frame Donald Trump.
  • POTUS 44 preserved the Communist dictatorship of Cuba and on his way out the door shipped planeloads of cash to the Islamic state of Iran, still chanting “Death to America.”.....
  • biographer David Garrow called Dreams from My Father, POTUS 44’s defining narrative, a work of “historical fiction,”.......
  • Garrow charts the “Communist background” of Obama’s beloved “Frank,” the African American Frank Marshall Davis, who spent his life defending all-white Soviet dictatorships.
After all that, and a lot more, conservative pope George Will hails “Barack Obama’s studied elegance.” So the true back story to Will’s hatred of Donald Trump is gushing admiration for his predecessor..............To Read More....

My Take - George Will, Jonah Goldberg, Mitt Romney, John Kasich and a host of so-called "conservatives" all have the same problem.  They reserve unto themselves the right to define "conservatism" as they see fit.  Unfortuantely, they define it to mean being a leftist apologist. George Will is a disgrace.
