Brent Bozell set the record straight about his uncle and NRO founder William F Buckley would NOT be backing a Trump candidacy.
“I would ask Donald Trump to stop invoking William F Buckley at this moment. I take this very personally, my uncle would never, never support his candidacy. He would never get behind this outrage and for Donald Trump to tap into that vein is offensive and I wish he would cut it out!”
Now for those having doubts on Buckley here are his own words laying out the case against Trump from waaaay back in the time before Apr/May 2000:
Look for the narcissist. The most obvious target in today’s lineup is, of course, Donald Trump. When he looks at a glass, he is mesmerized by its reflection. If Donald Trump were shaped a little differently, he would compete for Miss America. But whatever the depths of self-enchantment, the demagogue has to say something. So what does Trump say? That he is a successful businessman and that that is what America needs in the Oval Office. There is some plausibility in this, though not much. The greatest deeds of American Presidents — midwifing the new republic; freeing the slaves; harnessing the energies and vision needed to win the Cold War — had little to do with a bottom line.
I implore people to stop jumping on the Trump train until you have vetted him properly from real sources not sites that will tell you what you want to hear. You all screamed and ranted that no one was vetting obama, now there is a drive to do that to Trump and everyone including yours truly is being attacked viciously. Why? Why is that okay? Anyone who speaks out against him is called every name in the book, insulted to no end, trashed, called a traitor and oddly part of the establishment? Many of you have no clue what you’re talking about throwing words and ID’s around you’ve only heard!
The very establishment we hate that HATES Cruz and Trump are now running to Trump?! This makes absolutely no sense, other than a pack of elitists trying to find a way to hold onto their power. Bozell makes it clear because the GOPe knows Cruz can’t be bought. The GOPe believes they can control Trump, unlike Cruz, because Trump PROMISES to be this “great negotiator”. That’s not Bozell or me saying it, Donald says it all the time. You can bet the last penny to your name the king makers in DC are plotting how they will manipulate him and get their people into his administration (if he wins) to maintain status quo. Look at the names of people coming out to back him Hatch, McCain, Dole etc all HUGE PROGRESSIVE RINOs that you all condemned one time or another.
Look it took Reagan 30 years to be the conservative he became. There’s NO WAY Trump made the same conversion in just over 2-3 years! There are serious questions about his loyalty and true positions on serious issues. Furthermore and probably the most important issue being overlooked this election cycle everyone needs to think very hard on: 2-4 Supreme Court Justices will most likely be replaced by the next President. We’re already one vote away from losing the Second Amendment, who do you want as POTUS to make those appointments?
Please stop the infighting, stop thinking based off your emotions and use your heads we cannot afford another disaster presidency…
IT WILL LITERALLY TEAR THIS NATION APART!
