Christie vote shaming shows Trump’s “retreat to Berlin” phase

Chris Christie Shaming

The Trump campaign now brazenly imputes the vilest of motives upon conservative and values voters who refuse to sufficiently support Trump, in a new wave of vote-shaming that would be the envy of college campus social justice warriors and allied bullies. Its top surrogate and transition team chairman, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, openly targeted principled constitutional conservatives with a rant that should raise fears about a Trump Administration’s zeal to abuse government power should it gain the White House.

Christie, the former federal prosecutor turned Governor turned possible Bridgegate unindicted co-conspirator and Trump transition team chairman, went full Soviet despot. Or Boardwalk Emperor. The Stalinist demonization of the insufficiently publicly loyal is implicit in his words:

“If you are a Republican and you are not working for Donald Trump over the next 55 days, you are working for Hillary Clinton.”

Then Christie aimed squarely at the unnamed Ted Cruz and others who resist the either/or, lesser-of-two-really-evil-evils paradigm of the 2016 election:

“I call on all of them (Republicans who ran for president) now to understand one thing. This is now a binary choice.”

The moral weakness of the Trump campaign and so much of the Republican establishment is now in full display. These overt attempts to bully only confirm the absence of any merits with which to persuade. They also confirm a desperation and perhaps indicate the unacknowledged fear that all is lost.

Trump may not be hiding in his bunker just yet like Adolf Hitler, but his forces are clearly in full retreat.

  1. You say, about Trump that, He might have some. “zeal to abuse government power should he gain the White House.” You MAY end up being right, but WE ALL KNOW HILLARY HAS, IS & WILL ABUSE HERS.

  2. Christie and Trump using threats, introducing us to what to expect when they are in power. In other words governing by dictatorship. It is not surprising that Trump admires Putin, Sadaam Hussein, Hitler, etc., all diabolical dictators. I have a strange sense of foreboding that this is what we can expect if he (Trump) is elected. I’m not voting for Hillary either. They are both “deplorable.”

  3. I’ve had enough of this “if you’re not for him, then you’re for her” crap. No one had to threaten people to vote for Romney or McCain. Neither of them were my first choice, but I voted for both. Why? Because at least they were decent men. The same cannot be said for deceiving don. He’s a con, fraud, liar, and liberal. That tub Christie can blow all day, I still won’t vote for that turd throwing chimpanzee. I won’t be voting for hitlary either. It’s up to the candidate to earn my vote. Not only has diddling donnie not done that, he has publicly declared he doesn’t want it. I will happily oblige him. Instead, I’ll be working on keeping conservatives in the house and senate, another thing deceiving don has stated he doesn’t care about. He is just a vile person. I’ve tried and tried to convince myself that I should vote for him. But, in the end, I just can’t do it. He is truly someone with no redeeming qualities. He’s hitlary in a pinstripe suit. They’re both lying new york liberals. And I don’t vote for liberals.
