“Trumpism replaced conservatism as the ideological underpinning of the Republican party and, because of that, they don’t really fight about issues any more,” said Rick Wilson, a longtime Republican strategist co-founder of the anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project.

“They fight about affect and whether or not they’re winning these ephemeral social media battles and, in that world, the highest order goal is the ‘owning of the libs’. It is a throwaway phrase substituting the validity or strength of an argument with a sort of self-satisfaction that you have been transgressive in some way towards liberals or progressives.”


Its a depressing prospect. Surely the whole of America can throw up a better alternative to President Harrris ?

Could be a fight for the soul of the Republican Party

Trump Jr leading the Trump faction
Mike Pence leading the Conservatives
Niki Haley leading the Moderates

If Donald J. Trump were to lose next month, the Lincoln Project folks will be in charge and install Romney, Walsh, Weld or Kasich as Presidential candidate for 2024. Or perhaps someone from the Bush Family.

The new ideological pinning will be losing, and it really won't matter how conservative their platform is, they will have no chance of implementing it so it will just be an academic exercise.

Losing is the ideology of the Lincoln Project Republicans. It allows them to be "respectable" with the Leftist Elite.

Have you seen the Trump rallies?
No one is watching or is influenced by anti-Trump ads.

The Lincoln Project aren't going to influence any voters looking to maintain the sovereignty of their nation.

Both the left and right of the last 30 years were equally submissive. Only submissive people accept being ruled by foreign powers. None of these type are interested in voting for Trump.

They might be impressive to libs who already like their Dear Leader, Joe the Sleepy. But to conservatives? I don't think so.

Those one minute ads are targeted to moderates
They are quite effective

They are libs without their usual disguise
They have been Conservatives longer than Trump has

Actually, they have been Losers a lot longer than Trump has been. In fact Trump doesn't know what the word means, and its a lifestyle with them. That's why libs like the Lincoln Project folks so much, the LP is content to get schlonged in elections as long as they can maintain their "purity" whatever that is.

How do you know they are "effective" at all? You aren't a moderate.

Thats so true

the quislings would rather live under the boot of democrats than have an outsider beat them at their own game
