Is This MAGA Now?
Guys, come on. We know that if Lauren Boebert were rubbing the crotch of a drag queen in a library while the drag queen was grabbing Boebert’s breasts, the left would be fine with it.
But you’d all be condemning it.
We shouldn’t react to the left’s outrage over Boebert’s behavior in a theater by defending Boebert’s “do you know who I am” behavior before being kicked out.
The reality is parts of MAGA seem to think the movement stands for Make Adultery Great Again. Exhibit A is this from Matt Gaetz, hilariously supported by
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner’s “Amen!” on the same day Donald Trump could not just say “no” to the simple question from Megyn Kelly, “Can a man become a woman?”
Marjorie Taylor Green, Kristi Noem, and Lauren Boebert are adultresses. America First should mean family first, which these political leaders have not done.
We don’t get to criticize the left’s moral deviancies when our side props up its own moral deviants. You have no moral authority to challenge the left’s sexual standards when you defend the sexual deviancies of the right.
The GOP Establishment fell at the hands of an angry mob on the right when those on the right realized the establishment kept taking positions the establishment did not really believe in. The establishment claimed to be pro-life and kept funding Planned Parenthood. The establishment claimed to be for families while keeping the marriage penalty in the tax code.
Now, MAGA Republicans claim to be against trans ideology, for families, and for traditional values, while behaving as if they don’t really mean it. More so, they behave with cues from the top — the leader of a moment who cheated on his third wife with a porn star.
And now, when asked about trans ideology, the movement's leader cannot even answer a basic question.
I don’t think a former President who is incapable of being definitive about men and women needs to be a future President. And I don’t think a movement that condemns the left’s moral failing while celebrating the right’s really can lecture any of us on making America great again when making adultery great again seems to be the priority.
