Modern Conservative Republicans be like:
“You can’t judge all gun owners by the actions of a few bad.”
“You can’t let those Syrian refugees in here! One might be a terrorist!”
“We can’t take any more immigrants, one might be member of a drug gang!”
Trump’s Republicans be like:
Six people died from vaping, so we need to outlaw flavors.
They also be like: “How dare Michelle Obama try to force healthy school lunches on our kids?” and “You can’t outlaw Super Big Gulps and cigarettes! It’s our choice if we wanna risk getting cancer or getting fat!”
Modern Republicans be like: “You can’t ban guns! Ban’s don’t work! Just look at the ‘war on drugs!'” and “Criminals don’t follow laws,”
But then: “We need to ban abortion to protect the unborn babies!
And THEN: “If they outlaw guns, I’ll become an outlaw!”
And also like: : “If they don’t want to lose their kids or see them in cases they shouldn’t have broke the law”
And like: “Sanctity of life!”
But also like: “Why didn’t he do what the officer said?!”
Modern Republicans be like: “Any guns we want in any volume is our second Amendment right!”
But also: “A woman gives up the right to privacy and to make decisions to her own body (14th Amendment) when she gets pregnant!”
: “OUR Freedom of Religion allows us to violate other people’s rights to not be discriminated against, and to refuse service to people whose lifestyle we don’t agree with.
It’s not fair that we get harrassed for wearing our Trump hats and expressing our political ideas!”
And after all of that, they turn around and try to paint the left as melodramatic, pushy, “politically correct” hypocrites. Yeah, okay.
