Thomas Sowell: Misinformed Electorate, Not Trump, Is Real Danger

Is Donald J. Trump not a serious candidate? Or is the Republican Party not a serious party?

These attacks on Donald Trump’s supporters (and conservative voters in general) by the political elite are the culmination of the DC Establishment’s anti-base strategy, a strategy that is destined to doom the Republican Party to obsolescence while securing the veneer of two-party politics.

Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to the Republican Party in 40 years. His candidacy represents a necessary come-to-Jesus moment for the Republican Party in which the vitriol against the DC Establishment can be accurately measured. They are afraid of being exposed.

Liberals and Libertarians hate Mr. Trump because his self-funded campaign threatens to nullify their battle cry to undo Citizens United.

The Republican elite hate Mr. Trump because he has awakened many conservative voters from the hypnotic mantra of Guns-God-Abortion-Taxes on which the Republican Party has campaigned for decades.

The Republican elite’s determination to avoid representing our interests while having nothing to show but a trail of broken promises has led some conservative voters to turn their focus to more urgent issues like border security, sanctuary cities, and immigration. Sanctuary cities and lax border security threaten our individual safety and national security, while immigration – legal and illegal – threatens to saddle the Republican Party with permanent political minority status.

Mr. Trump is wrong to say our country is being led by “very stupid people.” The Obama administration is neither stupid nor incompetent. They know exactly what they are doing, and it is consistent with their ideology.

Mr. Trump has not been a reliable conservative. It is, however, perfectly conservative to prioritize the issues that are most urgent and provide common sense democratic solutions.

Donald Trump’s conservative supporters are not spellbound delirious peasants, enamored by celebrity and improvisation. Nor are we necessarily protesting the Establishment candidates. Mr. Trump is legitimately earning our vote.

While the Republican Party has been playing politics for several decades, the Democrat Party has been fighting for the hearts and minds of the American people.

While the Republican elite respectfully disagrees with its Democrat opposition but supports their freedom of speech, the Democrat Party brazenly calls us racists, sexists, bigots, homophobic, xenophobic, anti-science, low-information, wrong-side-of-history, hateful, uncompassionate, unloving, unfeeling, and un-American.

Mr. Trump is the only candidate we trust to give the Left a black eye for their abhorrent behavior. The Republican elite still believe they can win if only they can convince more Hispanics of their naturally conservative cultural inclinations.
