As always, we have to lead off by noting that Jennifer Rubin is the Washington Post’s “conservative” blogger, and much like her colleague Max Boot, she believes — and has been saying for some time now — that the Republican Party must be burned down to the ground and rebuilt from scratch. And of course, Step 1 in leveling the GOP is making sure to vote Democrat in the 2020 election.
Rubin also makes frequent appearances on MSNBC, where she’s the “conservative” voice at the table, and she really wasn’t holding back, saying not only that the party had to be leveled but that there could be no survivors — Trumpism has to be wiped out completely.

Jennifer Rubin is part of the swamp. Her values along with Bill Kristol's are not in keeping with Republican voters.

No serious publication should refer to her as a "conservative" or "Republican" going forward

As we are all aware, labeling Rubin as anything less that madly anti-Republican is a disservice to tge intelligence of Americans.

“Shunning & Shaming these people”
That’s the “moral” society we live in today.. We don’t like whom you’ve voted for.. We’ll shun & shame you till you change your political views

Now imagine how the the Left would react if someone said “We have to burn down the Democrat Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again.” They would accuse the network of advocating genocide.

Wasn’t there some concern a while ago about incendiary rhetoric? Or did that apply only to journalists and The Squad?
And they want to take away guns

Red flag law.
If she has firearms they should be taken away from her for her own, and others, safety until such time as she can be shown that she is not a danger to herself or others.

Such "tolerance" for opposing views.
Not to mention they mock others for instigating inflammatory rhetoric?

I mean this is America, right? Shocking that a prominent writer/blogger for a major newspaper says they need to 'burn' down one of the major political parties in the United States. We are still a representative republic the last I checked. Voters decide who represents them!

“Polite society”, can she please hear herself talk?
— PWAG (@pwagfly) August 26, 2019
Talk about inciting violence!!! ?

I’m just happy to see they are preparing for life after 2024

Loads of fun happening here. No wonder nobody watches.

Let’s hope the real conservatives™ over at The Bulwark realize that real conservatives™ like Rubin and Boot have no interest in someone like Joe Walsh … he’s one of the ones who can’t be left standing if the party is going to reemerge purified.
‘YIPEEE!’ WaPo ‘conservative’ Jennifer Rubin seems excited by Stacey Abrams’ willingness to be VP for any Dem nominee https://t.co/y19m21YVlp
