Conservatives agree: The DNC was unifying, patriotic, and a ‘disaster’ for Republicans

The Democratic National Convention is having a strange effect on Republicans.

The theme of the DNC in Philadelphia was celebrating the good in America, as opposed to what many believe was the Republican National Convention’s theme of fear and demonization.

Trump’s insistence on painting America as a downtrodden country racked with hidden enemies and crime was a stark contrast to the all-star DNC event featuring speakers promoting American exceptionalism and universal values – a style of rhetoric that the GOP once thought they had a monopoly on.

From Talking Points Memo:

After the GOP nominee lambasted the Democrats on Twitter for displaying what he viewed as too few American flags, there was a sea of waving flags as far as the eye could see when Hillary Clinton became the first woman to accept a major party’s nomination on Thursday.

The contrast was so radiant that many conservatives took to Twitter and praised the DNC.
