The Trump MSM Symbiotic relationship Pt 3: The Enablers

Michael Cor­leone: Your ene­mies always get strong on what you leave behind.

God­fa­ther III 1990

The third of three parts (plus an epi­logue) series on Don­ald Trump and the MSM part 1 Don­ald Don­ald Don­ald is here part 2 The Big Lie: is here. And today we are talk­ing about the author of what is going on here.

The National GOP.

The GOP estab­lish­ment (or as Ted Cruz calls them the “Wash­ing­ton Car­tel”) has long ducked dodged and hid­den when it comes to ille­gal immi­gra­tion. When elec­tion time comes around the tough talk comes on dis­play but as soon as the elec­tion is past the cham­ber of commerce’s desire for cheap labor that will not ask a lot of ques­tions nor make the demands of the Amer­i­can born and the funds they con­tribute come into play.

The sup­port of big money sup­port­ers is an impor­tant card but there is a sec­ond card in play.

As we have already estab­lished the media, par­tic­u­larly the Span­ish media has been push­ing the big lie that the GOP base dis­likes ille­gal immi­gra­tion because they dis­like the Span­ish. It has been the rea­son immi­gra­tion issue for­ward for many years try­ing to make it a wedge issue to use against Repub­li­cans & Con­ser­v­a­tives (appar­ently the fail­ure of a Demo­c­rat super­ma­jor­ity to bother with the issue from 20082010 had no bear­ing) . At every oppor­tu­nity the var­i­ous arms of the media and cul­ture paint con­ser­v­a­tives in gen­eral and Repub­li­cans in par­tic­u­lar as racists.

Now the GOP could fight back, they could directly con­front the media that hates and spins the GOP, but there is one thing that holds them back.

It would mean the slings and arrows of the press to defend a base that many repub­li­can dislike.

They dis­like a base that demands fis­cal restraint when they would pre­fer the funds to grant favors to fat­cat sup­port­ers who would repay them with high pay­ing jobs when their time in con­gress is done. They dis­like a base whose devo­tion to Chris­tian­ity & oppo­si­tion to abor­tion causes them embar­rass­ment in elite DC. They dis­like a base that gives scrutiny to bills that they would like qui­etly passed.

But most of all they resent a base that acts as if they, the peo­ple are in charge, that doesn’t sub­mit to their betters.

Why fight for peo­ple you don’t like when it’s so much eas­ier to go along?

So now we have Don­ald Trump speak­ing up when the party is silent and we’re treated to the spec­ta­cle of the same media that demo­nize Mitt Rom­ney seek­ing him out to lead the attack with the rest of the GOP anx­ious to fol­low with only Ted Cruz is smart enough to call out the media for the game it’s try­ing to play. The game that is never played on Democ­rats when a Car­los Hen­riquez comes along.

For the record I think the party, as I’ve already writ­ten, has rea­son to dis­trust Trump, but not as much rea­son as the GOP voter has to dis­trust the party, now if the party had been will­ing to give some def­er­ence to the peo­ple who elected them, they would find them grate­ful. If the GOP had been will­ing to lead on the immi­gra­tion issue, to stand with their base, to make the case with­out hav­ing to be dragged scream­ing and kick­ing, then the base might have backed them up when they needed it.

Instead they kicked their base in the teeth, and THEN they won­der why a man like Trump is able to make hay with them.

Bobby Jin­dal once famously called the GOP the stu­pid party, by run­ning away from their base and enabling both Trump and the MSM, they are doing their best to prove him right.

The only sav­ing grace of all of this is the trap that threat­ens the MSM, a trap that involves basic math, but that’s not so much part of the story but the epilogue.

Godfather III 1990

The third of three parts (plus an epilogue)  series on Donald Trump and the MSM part 1 Donald Donald Donald is here part 2 The Big Lie:  is here.   And today we are talking about the author of what is going on here.

The National GOP.

The GOP establishment (or as Ted Cruz calls them the “Washington Cartel”) has long ducked dodged and hidden when it comes to illegal immigration.  When election time comes around the tough talk comes on display but as soon as the election is past the chamber of commerce’s desire for  cheap labor that will not ask a lot of questions nor make the demands of the American born and the funds they contribute come into play.

The support of big money supporters is an important card but there is a second card in play.

As we have already established the media, particularly the Spanish media has been pushing the big lie that the GOP base dislikes illegal immigration because they dislike the Spanish.  It has been the reason immigration issue forward for many years trying to make it a wedge issue to use against Republicans & Conservatives (apparently the failure of a Democrat supermajority to bother with the issue from 2008-2010 had no bearing) .  At every opportunity the various arms of the media and culture paint conservatives in general and Republicans in particular as racists.

Now the GOP could fight back, they could directly confront the media that hates and spins the GOP, but there is one thing that holds them back.

It would mean the slings and arrows of the press to defend a base that many republican dislike.

They dislike a base that demands fiscal restraint when they would prefer the funds to grant favors to fatcat supporters who would repay them with high paying jobs when their time in congress is done.  They dislike a base whose devotion to Christianity & opposition to abortion causes them embarrassment in elite DC.  They dislike a base that gives scrutiny to bills that they would like quietly passed.

But most of all they resent a base that acts as if they, the people are in charge, that doesn’t submit to their betters.

Why fight for people you don’t like when it’s so much easier to go along?

So now we have Donald Trump speaking up when the party is silent and we’re treated to the spectacle of the same media that demonize Mitt Romney seeking him out to lead the attack with the rest of the GOP anxious to follow with only Ted Cruz is smart enough to call out the media for the game it’s trying to play.  The game that is never played on Democrats when a Carlos Henriquez comes along.

For the record I think the party, as I’ve already written,  has reason to distrust Trump, but not as much reason as the GOP voter has to distrust the party, now if the party had been willing to give some deference to the people who elected them, they would find them grateful.  If the GOP had been willing to lead on the immigration issue, to stand with their base, to make the case without having to be dragged screaming and kicking, then the base might have backed them up when they needed it.

Instead they kicked their base in the teeth,  and THEN they wonder why a man like Trump is able to make hay with them.

Bobby Jindal once famously called the GOP the stupid party, by running away from their base and enabling both Trump and the MSM, they are doing their best to prove him right.

The only saving grace of all of this is the trap that threatens the MSM, a trap that involves basic math, but that’s not so much part of the story but the epilogue.
