Since so-called conservative Republican David Frum is on a one-man Jihad against the only person willing to articulate and explain conservatism, radio talker Rush Limbaugh, I am reversing the field and making a multi-layred Jihad against Mr. Frum.
And, lo and behold I now have company.
Author Bernard Chapin wrote this excellent piece over at Pajamas Media adding another and obvious layer to the Frum kerfuffle.
The fact that Mr. Frum is all too willing to take his Jihad on Rush with an assist or two in the DDBOWMM.
No, it is not enough for Mr. Frum to use his boorish website, New Majority, to bash Mr. Limbaugh.
But, Mr. Frum is yucking it up with Chris Thrill Up My Leg Matthews on Whiffleball, aka Hardball. And wrote the cover story in this past week's Newsweek bashing Mr. Limbaugh.
Here are the last paragraph's of Mr. Chapin's piece. However, please read the whole thing.
That Frum excoriated Limbaugh in the pages of a roach’s den of radicalism tells us much about his loyalties — he doesn’t have any. Like money deposited from the Reichsbank in the 1940s, there’s blood on the gold from which he was paid. His is a betrayal of biblical proportions: David slept with Goliath.
There is no point in being sensitive in regards to this fellow. He’s crossed the Oprahcon. Despite his Harvard education and bloated curriculum vitae, David Frum is not worthy of licking the tobacco from Limbaugh’s famously nicotine-stained fingers. In the foxhole that is contemporary politics, would you rather fight alongside a lion like Rush Limbaugh or a fop like David Frum? I’ll let readers decide for themselves.
Frum’s new organization aims for “the reform and renewal of the Republican party and the conservative movement.” Apparently, this can only be done by purging known heroes and replacing them with upper-class ninnies who are cherished by bloviating toadies like Chris Matthews.
The new millennium is not an era for milquetoasts. Only a turncoat bashes his own in the camp of the enemy. Traitors should not be mollycoddled.
If we want to build a new majority, Republicans should let David Frum go the way of Scott McClellan.
And, since Mr. Frum does not seem to get the fact that falling into the liberal-left camp in regards to Mr. Limbaugh, I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Chapin. Let Mr. Frum go off to the other side. After all, he is using them to peddle a liberal-left talking point.
The fact is that Mr. Frum does not realize how really bad his rant sounds. As I noted in a earlier post, Mr. Frum is taking all of this personally. He really does not expand on the thoughts that he has as to how to get the conservative Republican message out there.
At some point, we have to shun Mr. Frum. Now looks as good a time as any.
I hope to no longer have to write any more of these posts. But, when some one can state the message about Mr. Frum clearly, I will link and comment.
Bernard Chapin is now added to the David Frum, shut the f--- up crowd!
