Dear Jon Favreau – There’s No Such Thing As No-Government Conservatives
Obama’s former speech writer Jon Favreau wrote a piece for The Daily Beast today filled with lots of subtle and not so subtle anti-conservative propaganda. I’ll rebut below.
Among his claims:
The Republican Party has been overrun by people who want no government.
Sorry Jon, those are the anarchists in Oakland and the filthy crime ridden Occupy camps you and yours support. Conservatives respect the rule of law but want smaller and more efficient government. Rejecting the Titanic doesn’t mean you hate boats. Even the most hard core Libertarians in America believe in some government.
The Republican Party was so much better when they had moderates.
Oh, you mean like John McCain? You and your ilk didn’t seem to like him so much back in 2008 but now you think the Republican Party can’t survive without people like him? By the way Jon, who are the moderates in the Democratic Party? Bill Ayers? Self proclaimed Socialist Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC? Obama? Was Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney a little too “right-wing” for you? Please.
Conservatives are hostage takers.
Ahh, there’s the “new tone” we’ve heard so much about. Tell me Jon, who’s keeping the White House closed to the American public while he travels to Africa and Martha’s Vineyard on the taxpayer’s dime? Who was in charge of the government when the IRS just happened to target Tea Party groups in the run up to the 2012 election?
The truth Jon, is that you’re a liar.
You hate Republicans, Conservatives and Libertarians. You hate everything they stand for and you’ll do anything you can to discredit and smear them while pretending to offer them counsel and advice. Like Obama, you think America is fundamentally flawed and you won’t be happy until the entire country looks like Detroit, the only exceptions being Washington, DC and Hollywood.
You’re a second rate propagandist, but as one of the people in Obama’s inner circle you probably helped create the fake war on women campaign of 2012. You certainly hated Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic Primary but you’ll ignore any sense of truth and fully support her in 2016.
Remember this picture from 2008, Jon? Go Hillary!
You’re everything that’s wrong with American politics, Jon. You’re an Obama worshiping cultist who got the chance of a lifetime to work for your own personal Jesus.
Forgive us Republicans/Conservatives/Libertarians for kindly ignoring your unsolicited advice.
