Establishment Types Fear GOP Has Become Party of Trump

The Deep State Establishment types have a new bogeyman for us to fear and political writer Mark Barabak was one of the first yesterday to sound the bugle call. The establishment types are worried that the Grand Old Party has become the Party of Trump. It is the Cult of Personality.

I wanted to be sure that I was using the same definition of “Cult of Personality” as I was seeing yesterday so I consulted Merriam-Webster:

Definition of cult of personality
: a situation in which a public figure (such as a political leader) is deliberately presented to the people of a country as a great person who should be admired and loved.

And, I laughed and laughed and laughed. Last I checked, we all agreed Trump was a vulgarian who tweeted too much. Hardly admirable. I don’t love him. Mark Barabak’s column posted in the “L.A. Times” was titled “Trump puts stranglehold on GOP — and woe to any Republican who objects”. So what was the line that was crossed that caused the G.O.P. to become the “Party of Trump”? From the article:

Mark Sanford blew up his marriage and became a national laughingstock when he sneaked off his job as South Carolina governor for a tryst with his Argentine lover.

After he forsook his presidential ambitions and spent time in political purgatory, voters forgave Sanford’s trespass and, in 2013, elected him their representative in Congress.

But on Tuesday, Sanford was tossed from office by his Republican constituents for committing a far graver sin: criticizing President Trump.

I never got why Sanford got elected to anything. There is something kind of creeptacular about him, to me. Katie Arrington, the State Representative who beat Sanford torqued off voters with her gas tax support, so I think this was a case of the lesser of two evils. Whatever, now Sanford will have plenty of time to actually hike the Appalachian Trail.

Writer Barabak got back up for his fear from blogger and Never Trump leader Erik Erikson:

Mark Sanford losing in South Carolina is pretty much proof positive that the GOP is not really a conservative party that cares about limited government. It is now fully a cult of personality.

And, Barabak quoted Senator Bob Corker (R, TN), one of my two Senators. Corker chatted up reporters with this:

If you couldn’t watch the incoherent verbal diarrhea, here is the quote from Barabak’s column:

Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee used much the same language Wednesday, telling reporters, “It’s not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of, purportedly, the same party.”

Corker was persona non grata with Conservatives and Libertarians in Tennessee before Trump got elected.

Now, I don’t have a degree in political science or anything like that, but it seems to me that whoever the President is and whatever the Party, the President would want people to elect officials who would push forward the agenda. I could be waaaay out of my lane on this, but isn’t that why, um, Presidents take to the road to campaign for candidates?

Google “Barack Obama and the Cult of Personality” and you get 692,000 results. Now, “Barack the Magnificent” could do no wrong in the eyes of the Establishment Types. Democrats worshiped him and Republicans quaked with fear whenever his name was mentioned.

I don’t fear President Trump and I don’t love him. He is the President of the United States of America elected to secure the border, repeal Obamacare, strengthen our Military, and square up our trade deals. What the Establishment Types fear is that he will accomplish those goals.

    Let’s be fair to Sanford here. Despite his personal life creepiness, he was kind of a rockstar in the conservative arena.

    https://votesmart.org/candidate/evaluations/21991/mark-sanford-jr#.WyLYrmeK_aA

    Pro-business, 93 percent rating from the Club for Growth, 0-4 percent rating from Planned Parenthood, 100 percent from the Republican Liberty Caucus on personal liberties, 87 percent lifetime positions from Americans for Prosperity, total rock star on guns (my personal issue) and 100 percent from FAIR on immigration.

    I don’t give a damn what he does with his personal life with a record like that.

    Arrington ran on a strictly “I support Trump” campaign. Sorry, I’ll go with Sanford every time. Of course, it doesn’t matter, because I don’t live in SC, but here in VA we had a stellar, eloquent, conservative, candidate, who is a Special Forces veteran, and who is passionate about actual issues, lose to a pasty turnip whose knowledge of the Constitution was tenuous at best, and whose only position was “HURR DURR TRUMP,” and who was FIRED by the Trump campaign in 2016. And that’s appalling.
