Rick Wilson bills himself as a Republican strategist, but he is another one of those false flag conservatives that MSNBC loves to bring on as a panelist. They like him because they can claim he is the counterbalance to the Democrat #NeverTrump resistance movement guests. Look! Even Republicans hate Trump. However, Wilson is no counterbalance – he is the Tweele-dee to MSNBC’s panels of Tweedle-dums.

What makes Wilson stand apart from the other false flag conservative Republicans – such as George Will, Steve Schmidt, Bill Kristol, and Elise Jordan, to name a few — is the depth of his hatred as reflected in the extreme harshness of his rhetoric. The title of his new book gives a bit of a hint. It is, “Everything Trump Touches Dies.”

In his promotional screed for the book, he describes himself as a “respected, long-time Republican strategist.” At least he could have said “former.” He could have done what people like Joe Scarborough, Richard Painter and a few others did – be honest and switch parties.

Wilson’s bio refers to his hateful rants as “dark humor.” It goes on to say that Wilson is “No left-winger, but a “lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right.” The only honest part of that description is the “withering critique.”

That claim of philosophic fealty by Wilson is similar to those made by his fellow false flaggers. Why they think they can cling to past conservative credentials in view of their attacks on the most conservative president (at least policy-wise) since Reagan is unknown.

I can understand the criticism of Trump’s pugnacious personality and his propensity to say things that are fact-challenged – and I have done a lot of that myself. But it is again a matter of looking at the policies and the accomplishments and wincing painfully at the behavior.

Like Wilson, I am a lifelong conservative. My political philosophy is not based on religion, pursuit of public office or ego boosting appearance on MSNBC. So, I wonder why these so-called conservatives are so eager to support the re-emergence of left-wing governance.

As a conservative, is Wilson unhappy with Trump’s Supreme Court nominations – or the record number of younger conservative judges he has appointed to the lower federal courts? Is he sorry to see the power of the federal government reduced by lower taxes and fewer regulations? Is he upset that Trump has accomplished things his predecessors only jawboned – such as more money from NATO nations, military weapons for Ukraine in their fight against Russia, putting ISIS on the run, allowing veterans to get private healthcare instead of dying in lines at VA hospitals, getting North Korea to stop nuclear missile testing and getting China to take action against the theft of intellectual property.

When he dwells on Trump’s faults and shortcomings, does Wilson really believe that the increasingly socialistic programs of the Democratic Party are better for the nation? Wilson, like Trump, has to be viewed by what he does, not what he says. Wilson says he is a conservative, but he repeatedly appears on MSNBC to promote left-wing policies and personalities by default. He is working against conservative principles.

In expressing his hatred for Trump, Wilson achieved something I have never seen on cable news. His language was so profane that even the relatively permissible cable news outlet had to shut off his microphone. I thought I had accidentally hit the mute button on my controller. But noooooo.

What viewers did not hear was Wilson saying, “Washington is full of profiles in chickenshit.” Then speaking to Joe Scarborough, “You and I both get calls from members of Congress who say, ‘I can’t stand this asshole’.”

Rather than being embarrassed by his descent into low-IQ profanity, Wilson proudly told the world in a tweet exactly what he said in that muted moment on MSNBC.

Not only has Wilson ideologically abandoned his conservative past, but he appears to have even taken on the left’s propensity to use the First Amendment as a rationale for using vulgarity as a primary means of public discourse.
