Another New York Times essay from self-proclaimed Republicans calling for Democrats to elicit significant ridicule Monday.

“We are Republicans with a plea: Choose Democrats in 2022,” read the headline from a couple of disgruntled Republicans.

“Rational Republicans are losing the GOP civil war. And the only way in the short term to fight pro-Trump extremists is for us all to agree on key races and overarching political goals with our longtime political opponents: the Democratic Party,” the essay stated.

Conservative critics wondered what the target audience for such an essay was and mocked the notion that left-wing Democrats wanted a belief in alliance with conservatives who were against Donald Trump.

“Federalist” author Mollie Hemingway, who responded to Tablets’ Noam Blum, called a unified Republican party a “threat to the left” and ripped off “corrupt media” to demoralize the party’s base.

“I legitimately do not understand who the audience is for this article genre,” Blum wrote.

Miles Taylor, better known as the “anonymous” Trump official who wrote in the Times about being part of a secret opposition within the government, and former New Hampshire Gov. Christine Todd Whitman urged the left and center-right to form in alliance. Such pieces have been ubiquitous on left-wing editorial and up-ed pages in recent years.

The “anonymous” essay written by Taylor in 2018 sparked wild speculation in the press about which “senior” Trump official was actively working to counter him. A CNN writer wondered if it was Vice President Mike Pence or even First Lady Melania Trump, but Taylor surpassed herself in 2020 – Taylor was at the time of his essay Department of Homeland Security’s Deputy Chief of Staff.

He lied on CNN in 2020 when asked by Anderson Cooper if he was “Anonymous”, joined the network as a contributor and then kept his contribution, even after admitting to lying to Cooper in the air.

Taylor and Whitman also received praise from the left for taking a principled stand against their party.

Such essays and columns have been commonplace since the Donald Trump era began to dominate American politics. The New York Times served as the 2019 advertising site for the Lincoln Project, the left-leaning super PAC founded by disgruntled current and former Republicans working to elect Democrats.

“We are Republicans and we want Trump defeated,” was the headline on the guest post by Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson, George Conway and John Weaver.

“Do you want to save the GOP, Republicans? Vote for every Democrat on this year’s ballot” and “Why this never-Trump ex-Republican will vote for almost any 2020 Democratic candidate” were the headlines for op-eds by frequent MSNBC guest Tom Nichols in Respectively 2018 and 2019.

“Here are 14 reasons why I would vote for any Democrat over Trump,” Washington Post Max Boot, a former Republican, wrote in 2019.
