The Donald And The Demagogues Democracies that trade substance for charisma dont last. Trump is Americas answer to Hugo Chávez. By BRET STEPHENS Aug. 31, 2015 If by now you dont find Donald Trump appalling, youre appalling.
If you have reached physical maturity and still chuckle at Mr. Trumps pubescent jokes about Rosie ODonnell or Heidi Klum, you will never reach mental maturity. If you watched Mr. Trump mock fellow candidate Lindsey Grahams low poll numbers and didnt cringe at the lack of class, you are incapable of class. If you think we need to build new airports in Queens the...

I love the smell of elitist desperation in the morning. It smells like, well, maybe I don’t like it.
The Wall Street Journal Editorial page has become almost unreadable. It used to be a great editorial page that I looked forward to reading on a daily basis but under Gigot it has fallen apart. Stephens is just one example of how it has fallen over a cliff under Gigot.
Another font of liberal wisdom telling us what we should think, and castigating those who dare not to think as they do. Trump is a crass meanie who makes losers feel bad, well tough titties! I want a George S. patton mentality leading America, not a Mr. Rogers pussy!
The Wall Street Urinal has swerved way to the left of Rolling Stone and Mother Jones.
The media are out to destroy Trump with everything they've got
I want “Class.”
I want the “class” of alcoholic Boehner.
I want the “class” of lying, scheming McConnell.
I want the “class” of Romney who became frightened of his own shadow.
I want the “class” of McCain who refers to voters as “whacko birds”.
I want the “class” of Bush who can barely defend himself.
These are the approved, Classy Republicans and they are what we should want, and others like them.
Mr.Bret Stephens, people know the difference and will no longer take the turd polish y’all have been handing out. We know it’s not Shinola.
That’s neat post!
Bret Stephens has problems stemming from low self esteem.
A little sympathy here guys.
Do you know what it’s like to have all the Republican pols in your pocket, along with the Chamber of Commerce, and then have a guy show up who is not beholding to you and doesn’t need your money, and won’t follow your orders?
He's saying this to a guy who trekked to the Poor Peoples March on Washington in 1968, if my research is correct, and stood with a placard along some route or other out of complete liberal zeal. That's me, of course. It's all very hazy now, but it was intensely felt at the time. One thing I remember is some tough looking black guy driving around whatever circle we were on, in traffic, who spit meaningfully onto the pavement as he drifted by, across the way. I was like, "OK, I hear ya." but it is what I remember.
These establishment fools have stuck us with 2 bushes,2 Clintons,4 wars,and 15 trillion in debt.
If we don’t elect a successful leader, what’s going to remain of the nation I grew up in?
GOP-E people are just stupid. They are helping Trump by attacking him but they just can’t help themselves. I love the way Trump is exposing people and institutions like the Wall Street Urinal as establishment tools without even trying to do so.
Man, are they scared.
But first we must determine who in tarnation Hugo Chavez is.
"... we may soon have a conservative movement in which the American creed of give us your tired, your poor could yield to the Trumpian creed that America must not become a dumping ground to poor immigrants from Latin America, as if these millions of hardworking and God-fearing people are a specimen of garbage."
Now now Bret, hiding behind the Statue Of Liberty, a gift from France with a sonnet by a New York City Poet from the Gilded Age. The age wasn't so Gilded for those multitudes of immigrants working for slave wages in urban centers, the very ones that inspired this poem. There is much irony with the longing felt for this bygone era, oh waitaminit, it is back, and back stronger than ever before, led by the Soft-Slavery robber barons at the WSJ. Come on Bret, why don't you just phrase that quote the way you and your collaborators really mean it: "... Give us your tired, your poor, your slave wage laborers ...", then we can talk.
I was going to mention how the WSJ Chamber Of Commerce lackeys never seem to mention the Constitution at all, but then Brett actually takes a wild stab at it ...
"... a sizable constituency in a party that is supposed to favor a plain reading of the Constitution objects to a plain reading of the 14th Amendment: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside."
... Which says a lot about his own reading comprehension, his knowledge of civics, and his logical reasoning. His one-track mind blows right past the Boolean AND section, reading only the parts he wants to see, thereby enabling the massive full-scale invasion of his alleged own country. Although the Illegal Alien Invasion force has likely already passed the population of Canada, still it is not enough for the exploiter class. They want more, much more. Because once they naturalize 35 million invaders then they get to say that the Illegal Alien population is zero, therefore it's tme to open up the borders some more. The concept of "RESET" pioneered by President Dumbo incorporated by the (R)epublicrat party.
