"The current purge the Trump phenomenon and "icky people to my right" Red State actions are nothing new... and they will be repeated again."
That is the line I ended a rundown on Erick Erickson's attempted purge of the Trump supporters. I also explained the long, post-New Deal tradition of the right's media with special attention to William F. Buckley's history at National Review. I did not have to wait one month. Jonah Goldberg wrote his G-file for the Labor Day Weekend (a seasoned actor's great sense of timing) saying that "No Movement That Embraces Trump Can Call Itself Conservative". I won't link to it. The Trumpers are bad, icky people. This set off what we call #NRORevolt. It's already getting a response.
No, not just the blockings and weak debates with the media division of professional GOP. I still read Goldberg to keep a pulse on Establishment GOP, so blocking me was blocking a long time reader. There was more. We had a little note from PJ Media written by Susan L.M. Goldberg (I'm not making that name up) about the seedy underbelly revealed by the #NRORevolt hashtag. Don't bother clicking the link. Automatically smears #NRORevolt as antisemitic.... like the Left would do. This is similar to last time where they went from cuckservative being about immigration and setting your advocacy to the "other" rather than your own (pathological altruism in a sense) straight to porno involving interracial. Always with a black-white contrast when in reality this is about 3rd world importation of incredibly different cultures with a special focus on Mexico. They want to turn this into an antisemitic thing, when it is not about that.
This is about National Review acting as if they are the arbiter of what is right wing in America. Just as the media (leftwing division) can soft censor out the Planned Parenthood baby parts market or the Obama administration running guns to Mexican drug gangs, you fellows can soft censor out coverage and focus on the right as well. By giving into standards of debate set by the left despite supposedly representing 50% or more of the nation, you can pick what we can even discuss as what we want as policy and what not. "Jump", "How high?" and you are the false opposition.
For example, you all fall into their framing and allow them to drive the debate. You are the handmaidens to their broadswords to American and Western culture. Jonah Goldberg himself lamented how gay marriage had been cemented and oh woah is he, the ship had sailed on going down the civil unions path. That is absolute bullshit.
Civil unions were a terrific compromise that you could have fought hard on religious and cultural grounds. Not the Bible simply tells me so, but the concept that marriage is an institution from one's religion, government can recognize it, but without that recognition we would give you the same rights but call it a civil union. If they pushed, fuck the Left but give them civil unions. A majority of people supported that anyway, so you could've looked good for once and still protected religious freedom. In fact, you should have funded those motions where possible and talked sense into the Christian Right. "It is just a word; same rights. Get over it, you're 2% of the population. Civil Unions in all 50 states!" End of pitch.
You didn't. Anther loss. Cthulu swims left, so where to next? Because in our dumb society, the Left will next push on churches to have to perform them. You fell into their yes or no false choice trap. You cannot be that dumb, and now you let your supposed base be called bigots and have their religion mocked. Their nation, their religion that our nation was founded on. Now it is shit on. What did you conserve there?
It is not just through subjects. This is through that water carrying for the Left by purging many thinkers past and present. I had covered some in the last essay, but not just the long gone Birchers, but men like Steve Sailer, John Derbyshire, Ann Coulter and Mark Steyn. These people are great voices that explain what you see today. Look at Obama's HUD proposal and how it will probably be an issue pressed on the next president. This is a Sailer specialty. Who is your guy on this? No one, so the Left will get their way. Hell, we might as well be living in a prequel to Steyn's book America Alone. You deny a platform and shrink the potential audience and silly approval by association legitimacy to someone who could see through the machinations.
And how quick have all of you been to jump on the hicks, skinheads, and other insults the Left throws at flyover America? To paraphrase Tyler Durden in Fight Club.
Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not... fuck with us.
Do the interests of the elite align with the population it supposedly represents? This is why immigration is so critical. This is simple population replacement and importation of completely different peoples, religions, thedes, tribes, etc. This isn't simple, send enough people to college and you'll brainwash everyone to 1970s Alan Alda. Think of how long the Irish were in America, and the JFK election was the resolution of that. That's over 100 years. Diversity + Proximity = War. We're expaning the diversity in all measures and increasing proximity.
We do not want this, but you do. You are mimicking the Left who led on this, so you're false opposition as you do their bidding. You guys make fun of Russia and Putin. Here is how Putin's patron Berezovsky explained.
Berezovsky also had another brilliant idea, which to his regret Putin did not grasp: creating a fake two-party system, with Putin at the head of a socialist-democrat sort of party and Berezovsky leading a neoconservative one, or the other way around.
Gee, we have the same thing here. Democracy! What a sham! Putin serves the Russian Deep State, and if you look at it, it is the old security state. We get that it is why you hate him. That is the battle of today, nationalists vs. globalists. You neocons, who run NRO, are the globalists. Buckley made sure to make it happen. You are all that is left.
Why? Who writes the checks? Similar donors as the other side and hey, some even have overlapping interests. As I wrote before, you conserved nothing, but hey, war (MI Complex donors), tax cuts (Asset Bubbles since 1980) and debt spending (corporatism) did get accomplished along the lines of donor desires. We know this, so you're not betraying us, but we want others to know this. Trump's supporters are not conservative! Trump supports taxing hedge funds! The horror! Who said it was consevative? Deeper, what make up the conservative principles? Hard to deny the charge of being only about tax cuts and selling out your supposed base demographically if you protect low taxes non-stop (deem it proper conservative) and witch hunt on any type of group protection (deem it not conservative).
Jesus Christ what is worth conserving? You keep immigration rates where they are, there will be no "2nd Amendment Debate". Conserving a people, a culture, an area are all worth preserving. Spengler was right, blood will defeat money. We live in a FIRE economy that has staggering wealth inequality with a 1% unaligned with the suppose fellow citizens. They are erasing Jefferson and Jackson names off of public spaces. "Democrats", heh, in name, but the very men who built the nation. Our 1% are global citizens like in Christopher Lasch's "Revolt of the Elite". Even then, what and who does the conservative movement represent? Please, keep yelling how "Democrats are the real racists" and mention the old Southern Democrats who supported segregation. All you are bringing up is that the GOP used to be the socially liberal party and then switched when the Democrats who had been the socially conservative party but were swallowed whole by the progressives who run things now.
Parties swap who they represent. The New Left brought in minorities and shifted working and middle class whites to the GOP. Bill Clinton acted as the DLC's nice, white "Middle America Boy Done Good" mask for the New Left that had usurped cultural power. Whites entering identity politics could not be allowed to not occur. You guys have to snuff this out now as the leaders of the Outer Party. You must snuff it out because if whites go into the identity politics game, it is going to be harsh times for the Left in our sham democracy. This is why the academia-media complex would throw racist out immediately on any type of white consciousness. They have to make it untouchable by the bloc that would be able to root them out through votes. Yes, voting doesn't matter much but how many know that, forget accept it? If voting continuously and winning but not seeing anything really change, then people would get upset with democracy and junk it... and the commies don't want that (America is a communist country).
For those unaware, you were suppose to represent our interests in this sham of a democracy. I fell for it too. You shouldn't have lost a guy like me. An Alex P. Keaton '80s Reagan kid. Shouldn't have. You did, but it is not about me. It's not even about guys like me who are younger. It's the guys Nixon brought in and Reagan Hoovered in with the Autumn in America patriotism and faith in the America we envisioned that won World War two. Guys replaced by imported workers. Manufacturing guys tossed out for outsourcing due to economic policies with little regard for the secondary consequences. Guys who saw their hometowns turn to Fishtowns. People who cannot afford to move when the immigrants, asylum seekers or section 8 get stuffed into their area. Those are the Trump supporters.
Purge the Trump supporters. Do it. Nothing new. It will not be the last. Do not smear this #NRORevolt as antisemitic, but we should look deeply into why Israel's border policies are good for Israel but not for America. You can never answer that, but you will purge anyone who will. This is for Sailer, Sobran, Coulter, Derbyshire, Steyn, Rushton and the Culture War speech Icarus, the pundit who dared to speak to our worries on campaign trails and run for Americans, Pat Buchanan. We know why they were kicked out. When you're done kicking anyone who defies you out, who are you going to have left?
More are seeing the sham. Wooo, big win in November 2014. What has happened since? Anything go right for the right? No. Any cultural expunging? Yes, down south who carried you all for decades. Is there a potential race war breaking out (that the media censors and shades one way) or floods from the Third World (including from war zones you all advocated for)? Yes! The Left's dealing with this stuff too, but their people get pacified by freebies and have special kickers in the bureacratic and legal system. This base is realizing this. These people are getting angry. They will want to know who pretended to be their friend, and they will look for you first.
Maybe I am being harsh. Maybe the National Review deserves to be the standard bearer for conservativism. Maybe this is all evil antisemitism. Maybe NRO earned leadership. Maybe... maybe I just need to look at the juxtaposition of the two headlined essays at NRO to see that they have no claim to the American right wing at all.
