Mascot with demo and repub heads

The symbol of the nonexistent Balladeer Political Party

Here at Balladeer’s Blog I continue to have the time of my life watching this period of political realignment unfold. In the tradition of my blog posts from American Liberals commenting on their disillusionment here is another item from an American Conservative  – Greg Richards – expressing their own disgust and disillusionment.

Former Conservatives like this have been driven away by the callous, comfortable and uncaring Conservatives like George Will, William Kristol, and the repulsive Bush family’s beloved Karl “The Hutt” Rove.

Greg Richards expresses particular contempt for National Review‘s Kevin Williamson, who outdid even American Liberals at expressing hatred for the working class in 2016. Williamson famously stated that working class communities “deserve to die”- and that’s AN EXACT QUOTE! 

At any rate the link to Greg Richards’ excellent piece is below, but first some excerpts:  

“Something unexpected has happened with the rise of Donald Trump.  The conservative movement has collapsed.” (Note from Balladeer: We should be so lucky.) 

“It turns out that the conservative movement was and is uninterested in the welfare of the United States as a nation.” 

“(T)hat is the wellspring of the hatred – there is no other word for it – the hatred toward Trump from every corner, every leader of the conservative movement and the conservative commentariat.  Not just disagreement, but hatred.”

“Conservative writers have taken economic optimization as the end goal of society, with everything else – everything else – to be disregarded and discarded.  The American people, once they found a leader (Trump) who recognized the consequences of this idea, if not a student of the philosophy behind it, roared back against this dark, savage dystopia that has nothing to do with the American dream.” Continue reading

lloyd-marcus-3Balladeer’s Blog has previously showcased items by the courageous Lloyd Marcus. Here is another example of him absolutely nailing it when it comes to the rot and sickness which has driven so many of us away from the Democrats. The link is below, but first some excerpts:

“(E)very common sense thing Trump says he intends to do beneficial to America is vehemently opposed by the democrats. What on earth has happened to my dad’s Democrat Party? My fellow Americans, our greatest threat is not ISIS. It is the Democrat Party.”

“Here are just a few Trump putting America first promises that have enraged democrats, launching a scorched earth policy to stop him:

A new national pride is sweeping across our nation.” Democrat controlled public schools have been teaching our kids that patriotism is racist

Trump and quote“We’ve financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit—and so many other places throughout our land.” As an American who happens to be black, it baffled me for years why black democrats seemed content with cities they control like Chicago, Baltimore and Detroit becoming hellholes of black poverty and black on black crime. Then, it dawned on me. Democrat blacks are not black. They are first and foremost liberals who seek power via government control and dependency.

“…my Administration has answered the pleas of the American people for immigration enforcement and border security. By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. We want all Americans to succeed –- but that can’t happen in an environment of lawless chaos. We must restore integrity and the rule of law to our borders.” 

“Folks, democrats say screw the law, screw jobs and screw national security. They want as many unskilled government dependent illegals flooding across our borders as possible. Obama spent a whopping $113 billion, $1,117 each, settling illegals into our country, priming them to become democrat voters.”
