IBD op-ed: Washington Post becomes unhinged on Trump

One item that Investor's Business Daily loves about Donald Trump is that the left detests him.
It's almost fun to watch them squirm and even become unhinged at the idea of Trump becoming the Republican nominee, let alone the occupant of the Oval Office. The Washington Post’s latest anti-Trump tirade was classic media bias on full display.

It tells the GOP leadership to "do everything in your power" to stop the "unthinkable" of a Trump presidency from happening because it signifies the "debasement of the party." He is "a menace" and a "bullying demagogue," the Post hisses.

OK, they’re certainly entitled to their opinion. But then the editorial turns vile and vapid: "He would round up and deport 11 million people, a forced movement on a scale not attempted since Stalin or perhaps Pol Pot."

Really? Trump is another Stalin or Pol Pot, the butchers of millions and millions of people? Amazingly, the left always talks about raising "the level of discourse" in America and then they write this slur of a candidate who has the support of millions, if not tens of millions of voters.

As IBD noted the WaPo editors are unhinged over Trump, so their over the top comparisons to murderous dictators are no surprise. What does surprise me is the hysterical ant-Trump tone taken by several Conservatarian blogs I frequent. It seems like they would rather have another losing nominee than one who seems to have excited a large part of the voting public, many of whom have not previously supported Republicans. As Einstein observed insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Thanks as always. I will address some of these "experts" from other blogs who are aghast over Trump being the GOP nominee in the next few days. They're angry because he's succeeded in spite of their "wisdom."
