Republican Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie defended his support for Donald Trump in a radio interview on Wednesday, saying that the Republican nominee would bring change — though he also said he didn’t know the change would necessarily be good.
In the interview with host Brian Thomas on 55KRC Ohio radio, Massie said he was “more excited to vote for Trump than I was to vote for Romney-Ryan.”
“I think you’re more likely to get change,” he explained. “I don’t know if it’s gonna be a good change, but you gotta break eggs to make an omelette.”
Duranty was a chain-smoking, Scotch drinking vulgar sort of man who made no apologies for his admiration of Stalin. He was held in awe by other journalists, especially young female journalists. He did not fail to use the awe to his advantage, or rather their disadvantage. As Fascism rose in Europe, and Japanese jingoism emerged in the East, Duranty wrote glowing accounts of Stalin’s Five-Year Plan. Almost single-handedly did Duranty aid and abet one of the world’s most prolific mass murderers, knowing all the while what was going on, but refraining from saying precisely what he knew to be true. He had swallowed the ends-justifies-the-means-argument hook, line and sinker. Duranty loved to repeat, when Stalin’s atrocities were brought to light, “you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.” Those “eggs” were the heads of men, women and children, and those “few” were merely tens of millions.
It’s worth noting that this is the almost the same brand of nihilism and disregard for those who will be hurt that people offer when they say it’s ok to vote your “conscience” and vote Green because “Hey, we don’t know what could happen, but argle bargle heighten the contradictions and then profit!”
