LET “THE DONALD’S” TEA PARTY BEGIN …
Who is Allen Olson?
He’s a “tea partier.” Or at least he was prior to jumping on board the 2012 campaign of establishment “Republican” Newt Gingrich.
After that, we started referring to him as what he is … the latest in a long line of establishment “Republicans.” Of course that’s what makes his recent endorsement of Donald Trump a little bit surprising.
Isn’t the GOP establishment – especially in Nikki Haley‘s South Carolina – supposed to hate Trump? Yes.
Olson apparently didn’t get the memo, though. The former Columbia Tea Party leader threw his support behind “The Donald” during the latter’s appearance in Anderson, S.C. earlier this week, citing Trump’s tax plan as the reason for his endorsement.
“Why settle for assembly jobs when we can also have manufacturing jobs as well?” Olson said. “I think that is what Trump is proposing and his tax plan will definitely incentives bringing more manufacturing jobs back.”
Olson’s endorsement obviously isn’t a game-changer (although we’ve received a few calls from national outlets asking about its significance). What does it signify? That Trump’s appeal in the Palmetto State is extending into GOP establishment turf.
According to the latest aggregate polling, Trump is the first choice of 33.7 percent of South Carolina primary voters. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is in second place at 18.3 percent, followed by former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina (7 percent), U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida (6.7 percent), U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas (6.3 percent) and former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Olsen and FITSNews were in LOCKSTEP in trying to keep South Carolina from getting thousands of Amazon jobs.
Wonder if every child that gets fed, or student that has books paid for… w/ an Amazon paycheck hates you as much as you HATE them?
You are NOT anti-establishment. You are anti-job and anti-South Carolina, unless you are filling your Greedy palms with money from the politics of hate and self-loathing.
And remember: if you ain’t honest about who, and what, you are…I’m here to remind er’body.
I’ll remind everybody that you get government aid while claiming to be against moochers, like yourself. If you ain’t honest about who, and what you really are…..
The thing is: I don’t think I’d take gov’t aid, even if I were eligible. It usually does more harm than good, except in extreme instances…which is mostly why I oppose it.
But like most liberals, when reality slaps the fuck out of backward and ignorant idiots, like you…you just lie.
Allen Olson isn’t tea party or establishment. He is gullible and will endorse the candidate that he can make his own personal headlines over. He hated Trump before he decided to endorse him.
you are right Debbie, no one is more surprised than I am in my supporting Trump
Allen is fairly new to politics and is learning the ropes. Has he made mistakes? Yep
Is he right to be with Trump? Yep
They align on many issues and Allen should be at home in the Trump Camp.
