from Kevin Williamson at National Review An Enemies List Is Not a Philosophy :

But these are stupid times, especially for Republicans, who in their pursuit of fleeting political advantage must pretend to be something other than what they are and pretend that Trump is something other than what he is. The easiest way to get through that is to do what the Left has been doing since the 1950s — convince yourself that the alternative is Hitler. (And, hey, if you read Dinesh D’Souza, you know that George Soros was a Nazi, right? And Soros is behind . . . everything.) And that works, if you don’t think too hard about it, which doesn’t seem to be an obviously pressing problem for Sean Hannity and his ilk. But as Republicans work their way down their enemies list, they ought to stop, if only for a moment, to ask what it is they are working their way towards. This year at the annual CPAC conference, the president and the vice president shared billing with Marion Maréchal-Le Pen of the French fascist political dynasty. Funny that some of her admirers on the American right such as the gentlemen at Breitbart are fond of denouncing their critics as “Vichy” conservatives. If you’re looking for the road to Vichy, ask the Le Pens — they know the way, if that’s the way you want to go.
