Radical Agenda EP137 – K.O.
After getting trounced in Indiana’s GOP primary last night, Ted Cruz finally took the hint and suspended his campaign. John Kasich still hasn’t gotten the message yet, but Donald Trump is the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican party and will most likely be going on to face Hillary Clinton in the general election. The odds of it going in any other way are too small to calculate at this point.
In my book this is one of the greatest moments in American political history. Donald Trump completely threw out the rulebook and took the fight to anyone who dared to challenge him. This is a far cry from the old “don’t make the Democrats angry” nonsense we’ve seen from the GOP for decades. When he beats Hillary Clinton in the general election – and he will trounce her, I’m sure of it – America will be a decidedly different place politically.
What comes now is suffering. The #NeverTrump cucks, National Review, the talk radio hacks, the race baiting filth of the Republican Party are all left with a rather unappealing set of options. Eat all your insults and slander, support Hillary Clinton, or get out of politics. No matter what they do, they’ll always have the contempt of the new face of the Republican party trying to chase them into obscurity.
On the left, riots, chimpouts, and hissyfits will occupy all of their time from here to November, and probably for the next 8 years after that. They are about to learn a very difficult lesson in democracy – your anger level means nothing to the vote count. A government entirely hostile to their worldview is about to come to power, and they will be violently suppressed thereby.
I’m absolutely ecstatic about all of this, of course. Last night was my most difficult night of sobriety yet. I wanted so badly to pick up some whiskey, and drive around town shooting my guns in the air screaming “Make America Great Again!” But I had decided to sober up back in December, in large part thanks to the Trump campaign, and that seemed a terrible irony to relapse over it as well.
Politico contacted me about that phenomenon. I was interviewed by Ben Wofford on the subject and that story should be coming out in a week or so. I recorded the call with Ben and will be releasing it, but I agreed not to release it until after the story was published. I will play a short clip from it on the show today though, because it illustrates quite well the driving narrative.
There’s a lot more to get to, and of course we’ll take your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.
Join us, this and every Wednesday, as well as Mondays and Fridays from 5-7pm Eastern time for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like the tears of our enemies.
