Love Breeds Accountability Takes a Look Back at Several #NeverTrumpers we’d Grown to Love, including Captain Kneepants

(I wanted to print out this piece entirely, but couldn’t copy the Tweets.)

Referred by Mollie Hemingway, a great read about the crow-eating of some of our favorite #NeverTrumpers, including Captain Kneepants and one of the Howe Brothers we sought to save right here at UP early in the 2016 campaign, when it was clear that the grown-ups had vision where the neo-intellectual kids were still wearing bi-focals. We did a piece on Jonah Goldberg as well as a response to the Feb 2016 National Review banner condemnation, which apparently went the same way as the very recent Democrat attack on Brett Kavanaugh, for pretty much the same reasons, “Trump fights”, as the author below lays out splendidly.

Some of the signatory writers in the “Against Trump” number were quicker than others to shush their bile and just watch as battalion after battalion of leftwingers jumped over the Golden Gate railing as well as sanity, as the true Left finally revealed of themselves what more mature and experienced observers always knew about their true intentions.

Just note, deep vanity does not go away simply because one is proved wrong publicly. The better man learns, the lesser person just hunkers, seethes and waits for another chance at vindication and may even secretly pray the Left will give it to them

Otherwise, enjoy. I love to see my “betters” names in lights.
