Cause and Effect: Bernstein completely nails it Edition

Saw this at Instapun­dit and I must say it’s spot on.

In short, many reli­gious Chris­tians of a tra­di­tion­al­ist bent believed that lib­er­als not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to big­otry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and under­mine their insti­tu­tions. When I first posted about this on Face­book, I wrote that I hope lib­er­als really enjoyed run­ning Bren­dan Eich out of his job and clos­ing down the Sweet Cakes bak­ery, because it cost them the Supreme Court. I’ll add now that I hope Ver­rilli enjoyed putting the fear of gov­ern­ment into the God-​fearing because it cost his party the elec​tion​.In short, many reli­gious Chris­tians of a tra­di­tion­al­ist bent believed that lib­er­als not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to big­otry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and under­mine their insti­tu­tions.

I said the very same thing in my endorse­ment of Don­ald Trump before the GOP con­ven­tion. (empha­sis mine)

I know that there will be times that Don­ald Trump will dis­ap­point­ment me just as I expected Mitt Rom­ney to dis­ap­point me on social issues and John McCain to dis­ap­point me on immi­gra­tion and George W Bush who dis­ap­pointed me on spend­ing and the bank bailouts.

But while Trump will occa­sion­ally dis­ap­point me (when he does I’ll call him on it) I am con­vinced he will nei­ther per­se­cute me nor strip me of my rights for hold­ing my Con­ser­v­a­tive Catholic beliefs and act­ing on them.

I am very sorry to say I can not make that same state­ment about Hillary Clin­ton, and I’m even sor­rier to see the day when I would say this about a pres­i­den­tial candidate.

This I believe is the real rea­son why so many of us couldn’t get the #nev­ertrump people,particularly reli­gious ones. A Hillary Clin­ton win would have meant per­se­cu­tion on a grand scale. Don­ald Trump’s Elec­tion has pre­vented this.

To me every­thing else (includ­ing the lib­eral angst) is gravy.

In short, many religious Christians of a traditionalist bent believed that liberals not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to bigotry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and undermine their institutions. When I first posted about this on Facebook, I wrote that I hope liberals really enjoyed running Brendan Eich out of his job and closing down the Sweet Cakes bakery, because it cost them the Supreme Court. I’ll add now that I hope Verrilli enjoyed putting the fear of government into the God-fearing because it cost his party the election.In short, many religious Christians of a traditionalist bent believed that liberals not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to bigotry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and undermine their institutions.

I said the very same thing in my endorsement of  Donald Trump before the GOP convention. (emphasis mine)

I know that there will be times that Donald Trump will disappointment me just as I expected Mitt Romney to disappoint me on social issues and John McCain to disappoint me on immigration and George W Bush who disappointed me on spending and the bank bailouts.

But while Trump will occasionally disappoint me (when he does I’ll call him on it) I am convinced he will neither persecute me nor strip me of my rights for holding my Conservative Catholic beliefs and acting on them.

I am very sorry to say I can not make that same statement about Hillary Clinton, and I’m even sorrier to see the day when I would say this about a presidential candidate.

This I believe is the real reason why so many of us couldn’t get the #nevertrump people,particularly religious ones.  A Hillary Clinton win would have meant persecution on a grand scale. Donald Trump’s Election has prevented this.

To me everything else (including the liberal angst) is gravy.
