Rise of the Roypublicans
Rise of the Roypublicans

If Alabama voters on Tuesday elect Roy Moore to the Senate, the Donald Trump-diseased party once known as the Republicans may as well call themselves Roypublicans.
There will be no way to shake the stench of this homophobic, Islamophobic, sexist, racist apologist and accused pedophile. He is them, and they are him. Any pretense of tolerance and egalitarianism, already damaged by a Republican history of words and deeds, will be completely obliterated.
There will be no way to simply say that Moore is the abominable outgrowth of Alabama voters anger.
Moore has been fully endorsed by the Republican president of the United States, the leader of his party, and is now fully supported by the Republican National Committee. Last week, R.N.C. Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told CNN: The president has said we want to keep this seat Republican. The R.N.C. is the political arm of the White House, and we want to support the presidents agenda.
The pre-Trump Republican Party is dead; The zombie Trump party now lives in its stead, devoid of principle, feasting on fear and rage, foreign to moral framing.
Trump was the gateway to the Roypublicans.
When supposedly religious conservatives were able to look past Trumps bullying, his clear lack of religious conviction, his appearance in pornos, his lying, his provocations to violence, his adultery, his three marriages and his professed taped propensity for sexual assault, they became blind to bawdiness. That was when the hands that toted the Bibles stopped towing its line.
Now, unmoored from any fundamental morality, Republicans have a situation where a professed horndog is boosting an accused pied piper.
Republicans have surrendered the moral high ground they thought they held, and have dived face-first into the sewer.
The Trump agenda is the Republican agenda: hostility to women and minorities, white supremacy and white nationalism, xenophobia, protectionist trade policies, tax policies that punish the poor and working class and people living in blue states.
Even the orchestration of Trumps weekend appearances was replete with the symbolism of racial disdain.
Does Trump not believe that observers register the compounding offense of showing up to deliver a speech at the opening of a civil rights museum already offensive because of Trumps history, rhetoric and policies a day after holding a political rally for a man who holds forth the days of slavery as halcyon days?
