The Conservative Movement decided to bet their entire future on Archie Bunker.
On flattering him.
On pandering to him.
On spending billions of dollars to build entire media, religious and electoral empires that do nothing but constantly tell him that his paranoia is patriotic and his bigotry is genius. And then spending millions more on press flacks, revisionists and propagandists to pretend none of it was happening and still more millions to infest the mainstream media with whores and useful Broderite idiots who, in the name of "balance", can be relied upon to reflexively punch the shit out of an imaginary hippie every time Archie shows his face.
Once upon a time, the Conservative Movement decided to bet their entire movement on rage and ignorance and hate.
And they and their Centrist enablers must be made to pay a fearful price for that decision.
Else how they gonna learn!
