I have a lot of respect for Leon Wolf and all the folks over at RedState. I really do. But I made the decision months ago to ignore their website — at least until Wednesday, November 9th — when they became so stubbornly committed to the #NeverTrump movement that they chose to support Gary Johnson, a pro-abortion, anti-religious freedom statist who is not remotely conservative.
It’s one thing to oppose Trump on a principled level, which I can understand. Several writers for The Pulse 2016 have been vocally #NeverTrump, including Maggie Gallagher, Michael Lucchese, and others. But attacking people — good people — who are trying to do their best to advance the conservative movement is beyond ridiculous for an ostensibly “conservative” website.
Enough, RedState. Stop it.
Kimberly Ross went on a vicious tirade today against Marjorie Dannenfelser, president at Susan B. Anthony List and a frequent contributor at The Pulse 2016, after news broke that Dannenfelser would be heading up Trump’s pro-life coalition:
In no way is Trump trustworthy on abortion or any other issue. He has shown little natural pro-life inclination since January. The only thing that has changed is he has moved up to the front of the pack.
Dannenfelser and others just don’t want to get left behind.
I truly believe the pro-life platform is a foundation on which to base other conservative ideas. Believing life is precious from conception through old age molds a person’s worldview.
