Slowly but surely, even if kicking and screaming, the #NeverTrump movement is fading in the light of pragmatism, sanity and common sense.
That’s right, another HUGE domino just dropped in the push for unity, as conservative author Brad Thor just reluctantly put a foot on the Trump Train caboose.
If you’re thinking could this possibly be the same Brad Thor of the controversial conversation with radio host Glenn Beck, the one during which he managed to get Beck suspended for a week from Sirius for saying of Trump on air, “If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that,” you’d be correct.
But when faced with the direst of circumstances even the most stubborn among us change our minds, and that’s exactly the analogy Thor used in the column in which he describes the reasoning behind his newfound position:
This is not easy news (especially for a #NeverTrump stalwart) to deliver.
America, you have cancer. And it’s bad – really bad. It’s aggressive. It has spread throughout most of your body and it’s continuing its march.
How much time do we have left? Less than three months.
Is there a cure? We’re not completely sure, but there are two alternatives:
The first is a decades-old generic, lacking any potency whatsoever. Studies have shown that Drug #1 not only won’t cure the cancer, but that it will actually strengthen it and speed our death. Drug #1 offers no upside whatsoever.
Drug #2 is being offered out of a clinic in Mexico. It claims to be a surefire, can’t lose, 100% guaranteed treatment. The clinic, though, is run by pockmarked, gold-toothed, oily-haired- men in bad suits with absolutely no medical backgrounds. They ogle your wife and daughter incessantly anytime you drop by for more information, and are constantly trying to upsell you into an oceanfront timeshare.
So, which drug should we choose?
Drug #1 will kill us – no question. Drug #2 might kill us, but it also might:
A) Slow the cancer, or even
B) Cure the cancer
It’s a lot to hope for, I know, but hope is all we have left. We have exhausted every other avenue. Make no mistake – I believe one hundred percent in standing on principle. Principle, in this case though, will not cure cancer.
Sadly, that crappy clinic south of the border is starting to look like our only option.
Interestingly, Thor lists an excellent column by radio host and former #NeverTrump stalwart Hugh Hewitt describing the long-term ramifications of a Hillary Clinton victory as something he read and re-read and “lost a lot of sleep” over, and which eventually changed his thinking.
Welcome aboard, Brad. Better late than never.
Maybe you can spread a little bit of your newfound wisdom to Glenn Beck!
