WaPo Conservative Columnist Slams Ben Sasse Over McCain's Funeral, Gets Destroyed by Twitter

Over the weekend, Sen. Ben Sasse tweeted his disappointment that University of Nebraska football was cancelled due to thunderstorms with bad lightning that was deemed to be a threat to the crowd and the players.

Not long afterwards, a supposedly conservative columnist for the Washington Post tweeted at Sasse, who attacked him for not attending Sen. John McCain’s funeral.

It was quickly pointed out to her that Sasse had attended McCain’s funeral in Arizona on Thursday before the memorial service in Washington D.C. on Friday:

Despite her protestations that she is a conservative, Rubin has a long history of attacking conservatives. Here are just a few of Rubin’s attacks on conservatives:

Calling employees of Rasmussen Reports “monkeys” when appearing on “Real Time With Bill Maher”: ”Well, first of all Rasmussen is like Kool-Aid drinking, you know, they have monkeys, you know, calling people on the phone, and it’s nonsense.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” and attacking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “And people like me think that — not that she should be harassed — but that she should be shunned. The reason is that she lies. She attacks our free press and no respectable employer should hire her after this term. Also, no university and no news outlet. She has lied and she has endangered the lives of reporters and that’s why she should be shunned. Not harassed — shunned.”

Twitter took Rubin to the woodshed for the dart she threw at Sasse. Here’s a few of the good ones:

Obviously, one can be critical of a movement they belong to, but when it seems like all you ever do is attack the other members of your “tribe” for lack of a better term, it starts to make it seem as if you don’t really adhere to the beliefs of the movement.

If Rubin is really a conservative, surely there are others holding to that ideology she agrees with, right? If she doesn’t actually hold to the tenets of the conservative movement, perhaps she should find a new label to apply to herself?

Just some food for thought.
