Wingnuts and Moonbats: A Concise Definition of Terms

Yesterday a Sean Hannity post on FaceBook asked if Muslims should be temporarily banned from immigrating into the United States.  I replied, no, they should be permanently banned, because Islam is violent and incompatible with western values and democracy.

This drew a reprimand from a member of my band, a liberal of course.  He said Hannity was a wingnut who is just trying to divide people.  I replied that I too am a wingnut and that I like Hannity.  Then I explained to him that Muslims are famous for mass murder.  I suppose he somehow missed the latest Muslim atrocity that happened in Brussels, Belgium this very week.

In any case, I got to thinking:  what exactly is a Wingnut?  What is its opposite, a Moonbat?  Here is the concise definition that I came up with:

Wingnuts are people who hold unpopular beliefs that are unfortunately true.

Moonbats are people who hold popular beliefs that are unfortunately not true.

Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio and Other Republican Twinkies (#VoteTrump)

Rubio's Deep Intellectual Arguments Against Trump
This week Mitt Romney gave a speech denouncing and insulting Donald Trump as a "phony and a fraud."  Like the over-age adolescent Marco Rubio, Romney's remarks were a collection of gratuitous insults bereft of any factual or rational content.  The GOP hates Donald Trump, this is clear and obvious.  But why?  What terrible policies does Trump support that make otherwise rational people descend into grade school playground put-downs?  Even the usually rational David Blount of Moonbattery has compared Trump to "Colonel Klink," the Nazi officer of Hogan's Heroes fame.

Romney is a failed GOP establishment candidate without the courage or the principles to go against the politically correct currents of our disintegrating culture.  He is one who will not denounce Democrat policies as destructive or unwise. but will instead vow to follow the same policies, but only to do them even better.  He is a snob in a fine suit who imagines his cowardice and squishy-soft politics to be enlightenment.  No wonder he lost to Obama.

Rubio disgraced himself completely by insinuating that Trump has a small penis, and ridiculing Trump's "small hands."  With Rubio, my impression is that of a spoiled child having a temper tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants. Marco Rubio is the living expression of a little brat sticking his tongue out and shouting "Nyaa nyaa nyaa!"  I will never vote for such a pathetic little man, the former "Gang of Eight" Democrat suck-up who is all in for open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.

My conclusion to all of this is clear:  if the GOP establishment hates Trump, and the Democrat establishment hates Trump, then Trump is my guy.  I will vote for Trump, and will no longer second-guess my decision.

Today is Confederate flag day, so that explains my posting the flag of my country.


And my lovely fellow Confederate agrees!
