The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin is a conservative in the same way I say I'm on a diet. We both mention it all the time, but it's obvious we're full of garbage. The latest evidence of this comes from her appearance with perhaps the dumbest woman on television, Joy Reid, on Sunday. Rubin told her MSNBC audience that after President Donald J. Trump leaves office, preferably by losing re-election, the Republican Party itself needs to be purged of any of his enablers. In fact, the so-called conservative says the whole darn GOP needs to be burnt to a crisp.
Newsbusters' Brad Wilmouth documented the interaction:
At 11:04 a.m., host Joy Reid declared that "this is an extreme administration that is dangerous" and claimed that Hispanic Americans should carry their birth certificates to avoid being "scooped up and stolen" by ICE.
Rubin then repeated her call for "shunning" and "shaming" Trump administration members and complained that the University of Virginia had employed a former Trump staffer for a while. The disgruntled ex-Republican then aimed further vitriol at her former party:
It's not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose -- we have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican party. We have to level them because if there are survivors -- if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again -- will take this as confirmation that, "Hey, it just pays to ride the wave -- look at me, I've made it through.
Rubin also declared her hope that the Democratic Party would be victorious.
This has become a dysfunctional anti-government party. That is not what the country wants and what it needs. And the proof is in the pudding. The reason they engage in voter suppression is because their underlying agenda is very unpopular. No one's in favor, it turns out, of taking away people's health care. People don't like it when you come after Medicaid and Medicare.
And if they don't, then they're going to lose election after election. And, frankly, that would be fine, too. My hope is that Democrats don't blow it. My hope is that Democrats are able to pull together a coalition that's large enough to govern, and that we can have some sane governance for a period of time.
Rubin is trotted out as a conservative blogger for mainstream media viewers who don't know any better. That'd be like calling me the next Billy Blanks -- simply delusional.
