The Coup Attempt Continues

GOP Convention: Day 2

 Getting better and better. 

Once again, the production values are so far superior to those of the DNC convention, that comparison is nearly impossible. The DNC put on an amateur hour that was barely if at all watchable. The RNC has put on a professional, entertaining, and substantive production. 

Oh, and the RNC had Nick Sandman. 

For me, he proved the star of the show. This young man was abused and threatened by the prog mob, led by CNN and MSNBC, among others. He stood his ground, kept his cool, and fought back. He spoke well and made clear that he has no intention of caving to the toxic cancel culture which the prog/fascists now promote as their first line of defense, to wit, if we don't like you, you will not be allowed to speak, work, study, or live your life in peace. We see that strategy playing out across all our institutions and on the streets of our cities, Kristallnacht on steroids.

I particularly liked the speeches by the cancer survivor, the Maine lobster man--what an articulate and terrific public speaker--the Wisconsin dairy farmer, and the young Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, who obviously has a promising political future ahead of him. Trump clearly showed that he's a master showman and willing to go where no convention has gone before. His issuing of a--well-deserved--pardon to Jon Ponder, and swearing in of several new US citizens providing some compelling television not normally seen in a convention. The DNC convention could offer nothing even remotely in the same ball park. 

On the meh side of things, I thought we could have skipped Secretary Pompeo's address, which while fine and factual, will get drowned out by the media hyperventilating over an acting Secretary participating in a political event. Pompeo's points about the great successes of Trump's foreign policy could have been made by somebody else. The FLOTUS speech was fine, and she delivered it very well, but it was too long and crammed with too many disparate topics. I think it lost some of its punch as it went on. She's an excellent FLOTUS, should be used more, and has been ignored when not maligned by the media and other "celebrities" in a manner that would have been inconceivable with any other FLOTUS, 

I think we will give this day an A.

  1. You are correct. My "news" feed is filled with "Hatch Act" buzz.
    I loved a still I saw of Nick Sandman making his speech shown on CNN. The caption stated, "Nick Sandman, dumping on CNN, while on CNN, paid for by CNN".

    I'm sure Mary Ann Mendoza will be relieved to hear her cancellation by the RNC wasn't cancel culture, but the really good type of cancellation.

    1. Deflect, deflect, deflect. You just can't face the facts. No political convention is obliged to allow speakers that disagree with the party. Was Trump invited to speak at the DNC? No. Was David Duke? Mendoza retweeted out some stupid anti-semitic remark; the GOP is not anti-semitic.

    2. I *completely agree* no political party, nightclub, or private commenting platform is required to allow speakers that break the rules.

      As I said, you think the cancelling of Mendoza was the good type of cancellation. That's why I find it so amusing that you bring up cancel culture as "toxic", when you believe in the concept wholeheartedly.
