Republicans are the political anti party even anti "themselves"

Republicans are anti-science, anti-climate change, anti-evolution, anti womens' health, anti wealth sharing through taxation and anti any history that's contrary to their reinvention narratives (like African slaves were migrant workers).  

Indeed, the "anti" movement within the Republian party is so pervasive, it appears the political party is even "anti" itself.  

In other words, the Republicans don't even believe in one another. 

 Now, the conservatively faithful George Will is predicting a Trumponian implosion of the Republican party if "Trump the Chump" is nominated in 2016, to run for president.

In a Christmas Eve article, George Will predicte: Trump nomination would destroy GOP

George Will is warning that if the GOP nominates Donald Trump for president, it would be the "end" of the Republican Party. (Maine Writer wonders if George Will might consider creating a Republican political "doomsday" party.)

Conservative George Will is predicting a doomsday outcome if Trump the Chump is nominated as the 2016 GOP candidate

Will is more a threat to "Donald Trump the Chump" than the competent Trumponian political competitor, Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Will says, “Conservatives’ highest priority now must be to prevent Trump from winning the Republican nomination in this, the GOP’s third epochal intraparty struggle in 104 years,” he wrote in a Washington Post column Thursday. (George Will needs a contemporary language interpreter!)

The conservative columnist says preventing Trump from winning the nomination should be an even higher priority than denying the Democratic Party a third term in the White House.

“One hundred and four years of history is in the balance. If Trump is the Republican nominee in 2016, there might not be a conservative party in 2020 either.

In fact, Will pans the GOP front-runner as a “fundamentally sad figure,” arguing that he has every “disagreeable human trait.”

“His compulsive boasting is evidence of insecurity. His unassuageable (Maine Writer translation- "inconsolable") neediness suggests an aching hunger for others’ approval to ratify his self-admiration,” Will writes. “His incessant announcements of his self-esteem indicate that he is not self-persuaded.” (Maine Writer translation: GeorgeWill doesn't like Donald Trump the Chump.)

Noting Trump’s recent platitudes for Russian President Vladimir Putin, he compares the real estate tycoon's actions to “a puppy’s insatiable eagerness to be petted.”

He also criticizes Trump's dismissal of allegations that Putin has had Russian journalists killed, and for suggesting a moral equivalency between Putin's government and the United States.

It’s far from the first time Will has taken to the page to bash Trump, with columns that have provoked the ire of the GOP front-runner. In November, Trump tweeted that Will should be thrown off Fox News because he is “boring and totally biased.” (Maine Writer says, "ya think?") 

Although I can agree with the "boring" review of George Will, the fact is, Donald Trump the Chump is unqualified to assess the performance of any journalist. George Will should be flattered by Donald Trump's criticism because, in the boring Will universe, anybody who talks about him is improving his "boring meter".

Nevertheless, as George Will aptly points out, the Republican party is now "anti" almost anything that improves the human condition, including, even, being "anti" itself.
