RINO #NeverTrumper Jeff Flake Is a Douche – But This Line from His Crazy Speech Was Great…
RINO #NeverTrumper Jeff Flake is an angry egotistical douche.
So Tuesday he took to the Senate floor to audition for a future gig on MSNBC.
The outspoken #NeverTrumper trashed the Republican president and Republican voters.
(And he’s too stupid to know why they reject him!)
But he did drop a couple truth-bombs in his whiny lecture.
Flake is angry because he knows the Republican party has changed.
GOP voters reject amnesty and open borders, reject ruinous free trade agreements and have no respect for pompous ignorant politicians who say one thing during the campaign and then ignore voters once they get in office.
And Republican voters don’t appreciate an out of touch loon who lectures them every other week.
Here are the best lines from Flake’s annoying screed.
Via The Hill:
I DECIDED THAT I WOULD BE BETTER ABLE TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF ARIZONA AND TO BETTER SERVE MY COUNTRY AND MY CONSCIENCE BY FREEING MYSELF OF THE POLITICAL CONSIDERATION THAT CONSUMED FAR TOO MUCH BANDWIDTH AND CAUSE ME TO COMPROMISE FAR TOO MANY PRINCIPLES.
TO THAT END I’M ANNOUNCING TODAY THAT MY SERVICE IN THE SENATE WILL CONCLUDE AT THE END OF MY TERM IN EARLY JANUARY, 2019.
IT IS CLEAR AT THIS MOMENT THAT A TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE WHO BELIEVES IN LIMITED GOVERNMENT AND FREE MARKETS, WHO IS DEVOTED TO FREE TRADE, WHO IS PRO-IMMIGRATION HAS A NARROWER AND NARROW PATH TO NOMINATION IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THE PARTY THAT HAS SO LONG DEFINED ITSELF BY ITS BELIEF IN THOSE THINGS.
IT IS ALSO CLEAR TO ME FOR THE MOMENT THAT WE HAVE GIVEN IN OR GIVEN UP ON THE CORE PRINCIPLES IN FAVOR OF A MORE VISCERALLY SATISFYING ANGER AND RESENTMENT.
TO BE CLEAR TO THE ANGER AND RESENTMENT THAT THE PEOPLE FEEL AT ROYAL MESS THAT WE’VE CREATED ARE JUSTIFIED.
BUT ANGER AND RESENTMENT ARE NOT THE GOVERNING PHILOSOPHY.
THERE IS AN UNDENIABLE POTENCY TO A POPULIST APPEAL BY MISCHARACTERIZING OR MISUNDERSTANDING OUR PROBLEMS AND GIVING IN TO THE IMPULSE TO SCAPEGOAT AND BELITTLE — THE IMPULSE TO SCAPE COAT AND BELITTLE THREATENS TO TURN US INTO A FEARFUL BACKWARD LOOKING PEOPLE.
IN THE CASE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THOSE THINGS ALSO THREATEN TO TURN US INTO A FEARFUL, BACKWARD-LOOKING MINORITY PARTY.
WE WERE NOT MADE GREAT AS A COUNTRY BY INDULGING IN OR EVEN EXALTING OUR WORST IMPULSES, TURNING AGAINST OURSELVES, GLORIFYING IN THE THINGS THAT DIVIDE US AND CALLING FAKE THINGS TRUE AND TRUE THINGS FAKE.
AND WE DID NOT BECOME THE BEACON OF FREEDOM IN THE DARKEST CORNERS OF THE WORLD BY FLOUTING OUR INSTITUTIONS AND FAILING TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW HARD WON AND VULNERABLE THEY ARE.
THIS SPELL WILL EVENTUALLY BREAK.
This guy is such a bitter clown.
Go away Jeff Flake.
