FAKE NEWS! Who does Politico think they’re KIDDING with this profile of Jennifer Rubin?

Anyone up for a riddle?

What do you call a conservative that everyone on the left considers a conservative but no one on the right does?

Politico has the answer:

Jennifer Rubin has become a leading voice for a group of conservative intellectuals who don’t fit comfortably in either political party—and sees the party she left behind as “immoral” and “anti-American.” https://t.co/AAyzEh57vq via @POLITICOMag pic.twitter.com/4KgcVN4QjY

Jennifer Rubin? Conservative intellectual? Our eyes just rolled so hard, they fell out of our heads.

is there anyone who agrees with this article? https://t.co/CJlEYpmJoG

Liberals, maybe. For them, the only “reasonable” conservative is a conservative who isn’t actually, you know, conservative.

hahahahaha ok

Not conservative

Not intellectual

Narrator: She was not a conservative, or an intellectual.

Rubin described as “conservative” is laughable😀😀😄😄

Touted as an intellectual is hysterical 😭🤣🤣😭

If she’s an intellectual I’m the reincarnation of Aristotle, Aquinas, and Einstein. https://t.co/7jQvMVB2oz

The fact that the @washingtonpost has had @JRubinBlogger as its “conservative” voice for eight years tells you about the contempt they hold for actual conservatives. https://t.co/gktipdB8BM

“Conservative intellectual” = opposes the Second Amendment, tax cuts, the tea party; supports the Paris climate accord, the Iran deal, Dems taking over Congress https://t.co/BhnViNNcoy

Rubin is a conservative intellectual in the same sense that David Brock and Andrew Sullivan are. https://t.co/lh4Met7Dr4

Say it with me now, folks: Jennifer Rubin is not a conservative! https://t.co/uZSvJ5t54d

Certainly not the last time we checked. Or the time before that, or the time before that, or the time before that …

We’ll leave you with this excellent thread from National Review contributor Varad Mehta:

This fanzine profile of Jennifer Rubin utter glosses over her inconstancy and variability and her notorious proclivity for pointing in more directions than a compass at the North Pole or a weather vane during a tornado. https://t.co/2yEiLPMWsc

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

There is no mention here of Jennifer Rubin’s appalling and absurd reversal on the Paris climate accord, which she lambasted when Obama signed it then turned around and cradled when Trump did just as she wanted and spurned it. https://t.co/2yEiLPMWsc

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

There is an entire litany of Jennifer Rubin’s alterations, transitions, shifts, feints, and changes of mood and mind that could be recited, not even a hint of which makes it into this hagiography. https://t.co/2yEiLPMWsc

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

To get the true measure of Rubin, her fickleness, the essentially unmoored nature of her approach to politics, her utter lack of any core and her fundamental hollowness, read this by @charlescwcooke. He shows what lies underneath: nothing. https://t.co/guxqhG8vM8

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

One day perhaps Jennfier Rubin’s cheerleaders will realize that her opposition to Trump and abandonment of conservatism is due not to a surfeit of principle but to its complete absence. That day is not yet here. https://t.co/2yEiLPMWsc

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

Maybe one reason so many NeverTrumpers won’t just abandon conservatism is that we still have principles and have no wish to associate with those who surrender them on a whim. If being NeverTrump means being like Jen Rubin, then, sorry, you’ll just have to count a lot of us out.

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

Jennifer Rubin is the flesh and blood answer to Jonathan Chait’s question about why conservatives don’t join the left. Making her the poster child for the “conservative” anti-Trump movement does more harm to it than its enemies ever could.

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

Maybe one day the media and the left (I know, I know) will figure out just what a disaster making Rubin any kind of paragon of conservative anti-Trumpism is. Let’s hope it’s sooner than later.

— Varad Mehta (@varadmehta) April 17, 2018

“Being NeverTrump means being like Jennifer Rubin.” And then people wonder why Trump has consolidated the conservative movement behind him. Idiots. Idiots all.
