. This last week we had two prominent conservative radio talk show hosts quit. Both Charlie Sykes from Wisconsin and syndicated John Ziegler who both are guilty of speaking strongly against Donald Trump. The reason is obvious, they are now so despised by their radio audience and get so many threats that it is an economic decision.
This is the first time I have ever felt any sense of comradery with any Right-wing radio host let alone two in one week joining me in reaching out to Trumpsters with a bowling ball. Red or Blue no matter. I also feel obligated to also give Glenn Beck a heads up on this too.
Here is what John Ziegler said:
“A new poll released over the weekend shows that a stunningly depressing 52% of Republicans said when asked that Donald Trump won the popular vote. Over half of the members of the winning political party believe/think something very fundamental about our just completed presidential election which is completely false. This is roughly the equivalent to being convinced that today is Saturday. To say such a thing means that you are either insane or mentally challenged, and that, regardless of which it is, I don’t have any interest in your opinion on any other topic.” Conservative talkshow host John Ziegler
I have read so much of late about reaching out to the other side come Christmas dinner. The trend being to not ignore politics but to discuss it rather than debate it. The problem – as I am sure you well know if you have ever given this a shot – is that your discussion must be free of any and all facts, data, truth and reality. Which leaves you with what to discuss? Gut feelings! So give them your gut feelings and be done with it.
“You knowingly voted for a vindictive, narcissist clown because you are so full of resentment, hatred and stupid that your friggin brain no longer works.”
They live in that right-wing bubble of theirs and there is no way out, not even tunneling. Their fair and balanced real news comes from INFOWARS, The National Enquirer, Breitbart, Drudge, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, WND, Sean Hannity, Scott Biao, Michael Savage, Ann Coulter, Fox News, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump and what Bubba said in social media.
It is senseless to engage them, for as John Ziegler says, if these 52% – over half of the Republican electorate – are so “insane”, “mentally challenged” and “morons” that they believe The Donald won the popular vote “there is no sense in having an interest in their opinions on any other topic.”
Which was the impetus for me starting this website 20 years ago. “Arguing with them is absurd so if you feel the need to engage them just get your licks in before they turn purple.”
John Ziegler goes on…
Now in case you think that maybe people just don’t understand the difference between the “popular vote” and the winner of the Electoral College (which would be bad enough), only 7% of Democrats failed to provide the correct answer to this very simple question. So obviously this is a very embarrassing/humiliating “Republican” problem.
So why are over half of Republicans so terrifyingly clueless? Well, the answer has primarily to do with our new Savior, Donald Trump and his willingness/ability to create a “post-truth” environment.
Can we please stop with this politically correct bullcrap? The reality is that a huge portion of Trump-era Republicans (about 52% based on that “popular vote” poll) are simply either morons, or are suffering from mental illness. Importantly, among Republicans without a college degree, 60% said that Trump won the popular vote. These are simply unintelligent people. There is just no other way to slice it and it is a reality so depressing that it has played a significant factor in my decision to end my national radio talk show at the end of the year.
