The Evolution Of NeverTrump

Lots of hurt butts out there.

RedState contributors quit over what they call site’s pro-Trump tilt

Two former RedState contributors say that they quit the conservative site over what they call a shift to consistently positive coverage of President Trump.

Kimberly Ross, a former senior contributor for RedState, and Andrea Ruth, who once was a contributing editor at the outlet, said in a Bulwark article Thursday the site’s management made it clear in mid-2018 to “tread lightly when it comes to criticizing Trump.”

The two former contributors said that Salem Media Group, which owns RedState, decided there had been too much criticism of Trump in the media and dismissed several journalists and editors who were “unapologetic Trump critics.”

Requests for comment to Salem Media Group’s corporate headquarters were not immediately returned.

Later Thursday, a third RedState writer, Sarah Quinlan, also resigned from the outlet, claiming that it was “no longer a good fit” for her to work there.

“I submitted my resignation from RedState this morning,” Quinlan tweeted. “It’s hard to put into words just how much I truly loved being able to write for the RedState audience over the past year, so I’m *extremely* grateful for the opportunity to do so. However, it was simply no longer a good fit.”


On Thursday, Ross and Ruth said that they could no longer work under RedState’s name because the previous mix of pieces — some positive, others not — shifted to mostly supportive.

“Though we continued on in the hopes the atmosphere might change, that approach is now untenable,” the piece said.

“[W]e … believe a healthy conservative media is not only beneficial but necessary,” Ross and Ruth wrote. “Unfortunately for RedState, the focus on clicks above all else, the fight over loyalty rather than ideology, and the refusal to accept any legitimate criticism of Trump is a stain on a once proud conservative publication.”

Can you imagine if back in January 2011 three of the writers at DailyKos or Huffington Post announced they were quitting because of the site’s “pro-Obama tilt?” Of course not – they would have been purged three years earlier.

If there wasn’t so much at stake it would be amusing to watch NeverTrumpers evolve in their reasons for opposing Trump. In the beginning they said stuff like:

“Nominating Trump is the same as electing Hillary”
“Trump will cost us the House and the Senate.”
“Trump will get us in a war.”
“Trump will wreck our economy.”

By the general election it was:

“We have to vote for Hillary to save the GOP”

By the midterm it was:

“We have to vote for Democrats to save the party.”

Now some of them are working for a liberal billionaire, and the rest act as though Trump supporters should be begging them for forgiveness.

How can anyone who claims to be a conservative Republican look at the past two years and see anything but a period of huge success for America, conservatism, and the GOP? How much more would Trump have accomplished if he had the full support of the Republicans in Congress?

As far as I am concerned, NeverTrumpers can go fuck themselves.

      Well, I am boycotting stupid expensive restaurants run by asshats, most fake news (print, radio and tv), any form of communication from assholes and/or idiots, establishment democraps and republiturds, and anyone under 40 who does not love Trump for reasons I do not even need to discuss. Despite the utter redundancy of this list I am loving life. I come here, I listen to my president, I come here, I listen to my president, I come here, I listen to my president–life is good and I am waiting to cheer when the wall is built and 2020 marks the second best presidential election in American history when Trump is re-elected after decimating the Beto/Michelle ticket.

      If it passes the Dem’s would lose millions of voters, legal or not.
      Doubt it will pass because of that.

    I need something new to watch on TV. I’ve finished season 4 of “Outlander”. I’m down for the count. I’ve had my flu shot and the pneumonia vaccine, but I’m still sick. I need something to occupy what’s still functional in my brain. I’d just sleep, but Ellie keeps waking me up to see if I’m OK. She’s worse than my grandmother used to be. Better to stay awake than keep getting awakened just as I enter a deep sleep. Any suggestions? I watched episode 1 of “Pillars of the Earth”. I read the book and liked it, but everything is gray, and the actors all look alike. Any suggestions? If there’s a channel, I probably have it.

    • lyn says:

      You can buy “Killing Eve” for $8.99 to stream at amazon.

    • Miranda says:

      If you have BritBox, I LOVED Dickensian. A lot of Dickens’ major characters set right before their books start. The circumstances are ‘Jacob Marley’s been murdered’. Also good: Frankenstein Chronicles (I think Netflix, but not sure), Travellers for a more scifi series. Father Brown, Midsomer Murders, and Death in Paradise, for not-too-grim mysteries, Shetland for darker mysteries.

      Two and a Half Men marathon on the IFC channel right now. 😉 On TVLand tomorrow, Roseanne and Men for the whole day. I’m all about the mental pablum when I’m not feeling good and …. when I am. Feel better {{{em}}}.

    • votermom says:

      do you like korean drama and zombies? I really like Kingdom on Netflix.
      Season 1 of The Last Kingdom (based on Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon series also good), as is Chris Pine in Outlaw

      on Amazon – have you seen Man in a High Castle?

    • Somebody says:

      EM this may sound a little odd, but go on Amazon and order “Hey Girl, You Need To Feel Better” tea bags. They are pricey, $15.99 for 18 tea bags, but damn that stuff is like magic.

      I bought some a while back when I had a sinus infection. I made a big double cup and damn me if about 20 minutes later I could breathe and I felt way better. I had a couple more cups that day and a couple the next day and I was golden.

      My youngest grandbaby was sick and I made her a cup. She refused to go home that afternoon because she wanted more magic tea. If she’s under the weather she comes in the door asking for magic tea.

      My daughter got sick recently, no voice, stuffy, a cough, chills. I made her a double cup, she rolls her eyes at me…….30 minutes later she’s singing the praises of mom’s magic tea. She had 3 more cups total and she was completely over her illness. My son got sick around the same time, but refused my offer of tea. After his sister went from yuck to fine I offered again…….I don’t like tea he says 🙄 Finally a few days go by he has to call in sick…..ready for tea now? OK mom I’ll try it. I take him tea bags, next day he’s back at work telling everybody about my magic tea. He bought some to have on hand 😂

      I honestly doubt it works for all colds and viruses, but you may consider trying it. It’s an herbal tea. I know this sounds hokey, but I’m not making it up. I have 3 packages of the stuff. The grandkids are always picking up bugs at school, they haven’t been out sick a single day this year. As soon as I hear a cough or sniffle they get a cup of this tea.A day and a half to 2 days is the longest any of them have been sick since I started giving them this tea.

      I have no financial interest in this company. They have given me nothing, even though they offered me a free bag for a review after my 2nd purchase. I did the review, they never sent me my free tea 😠

      • lateblum says:

        I just checked on your magic tea, Somebody. It’s up to $17.99 for 18 bags and there is a limit of 2 boxes per purchase. I ordered a box for me and one for dd#1. She’s flying so frequently for work and is hostage on planes for 4+ hours at a time. I think that’s how she got so sick a cpl weeks ago.
        She just arrived back in Chicago at midnight last night and is coming over for dinner Monday night. The tea is scheduled for delivery on Monday, so I’ll have it for her when she gets here.
        Thanks for the health tip. 😉

    • John Denney says:

      There’s a bunch of seasons of “Death In Paradise”, murder mysteries set in the Caribbean solved by a socially awkward but brilliant British detective. Good mysteries, comedy, beautiful scenery, and delightful characters.

    • votermom says:

      there’s a new Agatha Christie series on Amazon – the ABC Murders

    • elliesmom says:

      Thank you all. I have a list to try now, and I ordered the tea. I’m a big tea drinker so I’ll enjoy it, and hopefully, it will work for me, too.

    Ben Shapiro is a borderline Never Trumper, but I love his stuff attacking the other side. Here he is critiquing Cory Booker’s launch for President video …. lol !

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      I don’t have a problem with someone who was NT during the primary, but once he won the nomination there was no reason for any conservative to hold out.

  11. Dora says:

    I don’t know how true this is, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the dems announce her passing on the day of the SOTU address. It is just something they would do!

  12. Constance says:

    Establishment Republican Never Trumpers are a bunch of losers who spent their lives running around in a circle kissing the hairy ass in front of them waiting for their turn. Trump came in talked sense, took the Democrats lunch and took cuts at the front of the Republican line. Bribes failed on Trump because he has all the money he needs. Thank God for Trump! Here is hoping the Republican purge is completed soon.

    so if hillary runs again, will this one be vice. she knows to do vice it got her places before

      Yeah, but she’s in love with herself, so that counts for something on the spectrum.

    • jenlyn says:

      She may be one of the most stupid people I have ever heard speak publicly (behind Obama sans teleprompter and most people under 40 and all democraps) but the MOST stupid people in the world are those who done elected her. Wow they must be so proud….

  17. jenlyn says:

    I love it……they are eating their own, showing their hypocrisy and stupidity, and making Trump’s 2020 victory speech even greater because by the time he walks across that stage to accept his win these idiots will be drooling in the mental wards they need to be in now. Michael Moore needs to do a documentary called “Stupid in America” and show that in 2019 while we are tearing this country apart due to the MILLIONS of people that want to enter America illegally there are Americans wanting to dismantle everything about America that makes her special including, but not limited to, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. MY GOD the world has lost its mind. Oh, and since we can now kill babies as they are coming out the vajayjay does this mean I can kill Mr. Moore and call it a very very late term abortion because it is my choice that his life makes mine worse…..just asking???? 🙂

  18. Underwhelmed says:

    The hypocrisy is shattering. I should be surprised, but I just can’t be.

    If the owner or manager of a restaurant tells me I’m not welcome there because of my MAGA hat I won’t cause a fuss. I’ll very politely leave. Then I’ll tell everyone I know that I did eat there and the food was horrible, the service was worse, the bathroom was filthy and I saw cockroaches everywhere.

    • helenk3 says:

      better to just hint those reasons, then you can not be sued for slander but it is a great idea

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s what Yelp if for 😉 I think the restaurant has since apologized and will serve Maga hats now, they didn’t expect there to be such a backlash. Derrrrrr.

    Looks like Northam’s KKK trouble is a political hit by Soros.


    If @RalphNortham is one of the two people pictured in the highly disturbing, horrific photo wearing either blackface or a KKK hood – or if he selected or approved of its use on his yearbook page — he should immediately resign. There are no excuses for such a racist display.

      When you’ve lost MoveOn…..hooo boy, deep doo-doo for Ralphie.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      They are trying to move the discussion off pushing the killing of infants after birth as a good thing. There is a trap door for each of those supported by Soros and his ilk and their inner circles. If fringe players become liabilities – they go down to protect the core. New age human sacrifice for the greater goals of world subjugation. Fitting that this one follows on the footsteps of their love of violence toward those they feel to be inferior.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    LOL ! (yes, this is Northam and his famous campaign photo)

      FINALLY a racist ass Democrat being called out! now if the @NAACP could call out @jimmykimmel for his blackface and Sarah Silverman, it isn’t comedy it never was and a majority of this country has never been in blackface like @RalphNortham

  29. mothy2017 says:

    Seems to me that the only thing that should matter to anyone with a heart, soul, or brain is the makeup of the courts. !yeb¡ and ilk would have given us more Roberts and no Kavanaugh. He is remaking the 9th!!!!!!!!!! If blue collar workers making enough to get by is a a buzzkill. The never Trumpers can easily support putting America last and donors first in a mere six years.

    The thing that pisses me off the most about the Northam jackass is that he ran around his entire election calling Trump and Ed Gilipsie racists. Now I don’t know squat about Gipsie, but I haven’t seen a picture of him in blackface or KKK hood when he was a 25 year old med student. And of course I know for a fact Trump isn’t racist.

    Karma: suck it.

    Also, Fake News CNN claims Northam is a Republican because of course.
