The Washington Post doesn’t really have any conservative writers.
And none of them like Donald Trump, or Ron DeSantis, or any actual conservative.
Now this “conservative” Washington Post columnist who said Trump was worse than a Nazi says DeSantis is worse than Trump.
For years writer Max Boot tried to pass himself off as a “deep thinking” conservative columnist and prognosticator.
Some conservatives even bought it.
Until Donald Trump that is.
Donald Trump, no matter what else you may think about him, broke the fake conservatives, much like he broke the Left.
The conservative movement is better and stronger because Trump was able to root out all the pretenders like Boot, Bill Kristol and others who weren’t just “Never-Trumpers” they were “Never-Conservatives.”
And in his latest piece of drivel, Washington Post opinion columnist Max Boot claims that Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is a “bigger threat to the Republic” than former President Donald Trump.
At first it seems like an almost backhanded compliment because Boot says it’s because DeSantis is “smarter” than Trump.
But he also claimed in his column that DeSantis is like another “unpleasant” former President, Richard Nixon.
Boot began his diatribe against the popular Republican Governor, and early 2024 presidential frontrunner, by comparing him to former President Donald Trump and trying to decide who is worse.
Boot penned, “Already, a poll in New Hampshire shows DeSantis topping Trump. The question, from the standpoint of those of us who have a sentimental attachment to American democracy, is which man is a bigger threat to the republic?”
That paragraph of course shows the idiocy of people like Boot who in one sentence mentions both democracy and the republic, not even understanding the two are completely different forms of government.
But then again Boot was never known for either his consistent philosophy or his intelligence.
But, undeterred by his lack of intellect, Boot turned to a New Yorker profile on DeSantis written by Dexter Filkins.
Boot wrote, “Filkins notes that, ‘while Trump, with his lazy, Barnumesque persona, projects a fundamental lack of seriousness, DeSantis has an intense work ethic, a formidable intelligence, and a granular understanding of policy.’”
That one paragraph was enough for Boot, who then asked, “But do we really want a president who will work harder and more intelligently to implement a Trumpian agenda? Is it really better to have a president who is relentlessly focused on right-wing bugaboos . . . rather than one who is easily distracted into braggadocio about his golf game or his flooring?”
For Boot, it is clear – DeSantis is more dangerous than Donald Trump.
And Boot wrote a column in 2020 claiming that “Trump is the worst threat to our democracy since the 1930s” and cited Nazi authoritarianism.
So does this now mean Boot thinks DeSantis is worse than the threat of Nazi Germany?
And Boot takes it even further.
“Actually, the more I read about DeSantis, the more he reminds me not of Trump but of another disgraced Republican president,” Boot wrote. He continued, claiming, “Smart and disciplined but reclusive and unpleasant: Who does that remind you of? That’s right: Richard M. Nixon.”
Max Boot is on a mission.
A mission to tear down any and all actual conservatives and make sure only his type of “conservative” is allowed to rise to the top.
You know his type of conservative . . . a liberal.
