The Pundit Has No Clothes
After months of endless anti-Trump rhetoric pumped daily over the broadcast channels of Fox News and the print pages of the Washington Post, establishment mouthpiece George Will finally threw the penultimate hissy fit, announcing that he was not only leaving the Republican party, but that he was putting his institutional ‘weight’ toward the election of establishment candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election.
Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.
“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon. (PJ Media)
George Will’s flailing histronics now completely validates everything discontented voters have come to believe about the Washington media establishment and the political parties they feign to advocate for. Whether they portend to represent either Democrat or Republican ‘interests’, in truth these ‘pundits’ only seek to advance institutional agendas that are at odds with the wishes of the American people, and in reality only represent the dual intentions of our fraudulent ‘two-party’ system of government.
After decades of posturing as an spokesperson of ‘the right’, George Will has shown himself to be merely a hired agent of our political duopoly. Conservative ‘interests’ were never his motivation. The maintenance of the status quo were always the root of any agenda he pontificated. Just one half of an act of smoke and mirrors.
This desperate, final act of a familiar establishment face reveals the frustration of a political class that the candidacy of Donald Trump has unveiled. Trump’s campaign to represent ‘We The People’, above the interests of our institutional hierarchies has torn the curtain off of American politics. George Will would rather run under Hillary Clinton’s establishment umbrella, than support the candidate that the voters of “his” party have chosen to best advance their interests.
George Will was never a Republican. George Will was never a conservative. George Will was a brand, a name, a face that only existed to soothe politically compartmentalized voters. To lull them into a false sense of ideological security. Like many others among our pundit class, George Will’s role was to placate a segment of the citizenry. Allow them to believe that they were represented, when in fact .. there was no one holding the reigns of power who sought their betterment.
Upon the departure of George Will from the ‘Grand Old Party’, the only question I have remaining is .. who can he take with him?
