Bruce Jenner, Republican

1-Bruce Jenner There’s arguably no better sign of the Kali-Yuga than the recently aired, four-hour long Bruce Jenner TV special. The former Olympic athlete and Kardashian patriarch came out that he is (somehow) a woman. But everyone already knew that he was “transitioning” genders. What became the real shocker was that he is a conservative Republican and a devout Christian. And there are already Republicans celebrating Jenner’s political coming out. Republican Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz—a rising star in the party—said that he is happy Jenner shares the same political affiliation and that the party accepts all kinds of people. Twitchy, a conservative site formerly run by Michelle Malkin, posted two supportive articles of the Kardashian star after his political revelation. And WorldNetDaily (yes, WorldNetDaily) published a column calling for Christians to “love” Jenner—in spite of his decision—because hating him is exactly what the left wants. But the real coup for knowing Jenner is being embraced with open arms by Republicans is Grover Norquist’s response. Norquist, a leader of the conservative movement and head of Americans for Tax Reform, tweeted that Jenner is a “solid Ronald Reagan Republican. Good on taxes,” and deserves to be left alone. While this tweet manages to summarize the sheer stupidity of conservatism in less than 140 characters, it also shows why this particular transsexual is starting to become a hero for the American Right: he’s good on taxes. And since the GOP places fiscal matters above all other issues, they can accept Jenner—even though he represents the cultural revolution in its most hideous form. But Republicans don’t care about preserving traditional notions of gender, sexuality, and cultural norms—all they care about is economics. Jenner’s coming out was greeted positively by everyone from the conservative trolls associated with Twitchy to establishment Republicans to the millenarian Christians of WorldNetDaily. There’s only a few things that all corners of the American Right can agree on—and Bruce Jenner is one of them. http://www.radixjournal.com/blog/2015/4/27/bruce-jenner-republican
