Mainstream Conservatives Never Wanted To Win

It has only been ten days and look what President Trump has already accomplished:

There’s a lot more that we could add here: slamming ‘civil rights icon’ John Lewis, making Chuck Schumer cry crocodile tears, repeatedly labeling CNN, BuzzFeed and The New York Times ‘fake news’, reaching out to Vladimir Putin to end the Second Cold War with Russia, triggering the opposition to the point where they have embraced self-marginalizing tactics like political violence, mass hysteria and dressing up like vaginas and pretending to be dead in public streets.

Rod Dreher is handwringing again:

“But they (we) can’t do that unless we have in our minds clear principles on which we cannot allow ourselves to compromise, or rather, to be compromised. We have to be prepared to lose with honor than win with dishonor, because we fear a judge greater than the voters.

The astonishing audacity and recklessness with which Trump has begun his presidency is a bad sign. For me, it is not so much what he has done (though I do object to some of it) as it is the reckless manner in which he has done it. As every well-raised Southern child knows, manners express morality. Yes, manners are artificial, but they embody a social code that governs the conduct of people who live under it. True, it is always better to do the right thing than to work unrighteousness under the cover of minding one’s manners. But as Brooks points out, there’s something crude and vicious about the way Trump goes out of his way to provoke, to rub the noses of his opponents in the exercise of his power. In Trump’s case, manners express the man.

In other words, we know what kind of president Trump is going to be by the way he has carried out his executive actions so far. He does not consider himself bound by law or custom. He is a law unto himself. …”

Ah yes … “crude and vicious.” Dreher’s head must be spinning.

Why is it crude and vicious? President Trump is already doing exactly what he said he would do during the campaign. He doesn’t consider himself bound by the Republican custom of betraying their own voters to cater to wealthy interests who want things like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and unlimited Third World immigration. We’re already seeing an amazing display of virtues like loyalty, courage and fortitude that we are not accustomed to seeing from our spineless Republican leadership.

Winning is not the way “conservatives” are accustomed to doing things in Washington. It strikes them as audacious and reckless because they are so weak and cowardly:

Why do you think they never conserved anything? They were pushovers.

It pains me to say it, but Rod Dreher has written an entire book called The Benedict Option which turns the cowardice, meekness and weakness of contemporary evangelical Christianity into a comprehensive strategy of cultural and political surrender. Just imagine where the Right would be right now if we had Dreher and the “Benedict Option” instead of President Trump.

Unlike his critics, President Trump has a sense of honor, which is one of the main reasons the Alt-Right was so attracted to his candidacy. We liked him because he WASN’T a conservative. He defends his name and reputation. He doesn’t back down from fights. He isn’t intimidated when he is called mean names. He doesn’t consider confrontations to be bad manners. He feels a sense of obligation to his supporters. He doesn’t care what a bunch of worthless pundits are saying.

It is worth contrasting what President Trump has already accomplished with the billions of dollars and millions of votes that was squandered on Conservatism, Inc. over the course of several decades. What do you think would have happened if ¡Jeb! or Marco Rubio or Egg McMuffin had won these presidency? Do you think we would have had all these amazing victories? I don’t.

President Trump isn’t a “True Conservative.” Judging by what he has already accomplished, maybe “True Conservatism” isn’t the way to go. What would Congress look like today if we had fewer of these “true conservatives” like Egg McMuffin, whose previous job was Chief Policy Director for the House Republican Congress, and more congressmen, senators, governors and state legislators like President Trump? What if the Right had fewer “true conservative” pundits and intellectuals?

“As every well-raised Southern child knows, manners express morality. ”

Dreher blundered into anti-Semitism.

Dreher says we should rather lose with honor than win with dishonor.

I would agree, except for the fact that our foes are not prepared to lose with honor.

They aren’t prepared to do anything with honor because, to them, honor is part of the CISHETEROPATRIARCHALWHITESUPREMACY they seek to destroy. Or rather, invert.

Dreher sums up the problem with conservatives in particular and whites in general: insisting that our side play by a set of rules [that can only work when everyone plays by those rules] when our foes are clearly playing by a wholly different set.

I’ve begun to suspect Dreher is being influenced by some kind of money or pressure to take the positions he’s been taking. At this point, he’s openly accepted all of the premises of the Alt-Right while still advocating a more or less Liberal line against us and Trump. I don’t know how stupid he is, but I can’t imagine he doesn’t know, deep in his heart, that he’s on the wrong side.

Of course he is. All these cuck magazines like American Conservative and National Review are not profitable. The money comes from ((( donors))) who expect to have their agendas supported.

These are the sort of guys who would have refrained from nuking Japan and sacrificed a million GIs instead in order to be honorable.

I agree, but to go off topic for a moment, I’d just like to point out that “one million GIs” was a postwar rationalization, not something that was ever seriously expected by military planners. It seems more likely to me that the decision was influenced by the entry of the Soviets in the war against Japan than by concerns about possible casualties.

Trump has delivered some goods, but the selection of Neil GorSUCK to replace the esteemed Antonin Scalia is a huge letdown and possibly damages the Court with another Robertsesque Cuck for decades to come. GorSUCK would have been there for nomination when Kennedy retires in a year or two. It would make more sense to replace a milquetoast Reagan Conservative with a Judge whose Mom was in the Reagan cabinet. Instead we get GorSUCK replacing Scalia, and I bet GorSUCK will prove traitorous on key decisions just like Kennedy and Roberts. Trump should have nominated William Pryor. Why do Republicans… Read more »

Point of order, goy. Trump is a conservative, in the vein that existed before William F Buckley hijacked the term to describe his orgy of classically liberal economics, open borders, muscular foreign policy sperging. Low taxes, low taxes, low government overhead, detached foreign policy, closed borders, and nationalism on steroids is very reminiscent of the Buchanan paleocon movement. If we could get him to start punching left at the fag movement, he’d be one of us……or Steve Bannon

Mainstream Conservatives never wanted to win. They just wanted to be liked. Now, thankfully, some are beginning to acknowledge winning is a good thing and maybe surrendering all the time was a bad thing. Really just happy some seem capable of cognition and learning. Had my doubts ..

I always thought of the old mainstream conservatism (what we now call cuckservatism) as controlled opposition. I don’t think most rank and file cuckservatives would be that way if they hadn’t been indoctrinated into this way of thinking by years of watching Fox news and listening to talk radio. In other words, the impulse to put aside white group interests in favor of reaching out to nonwhites comes from the conservative establishment, originally. The new mainstream conservatism is civic nationalism, as exemplified by Trump. At least, we hope that it is the new mainstream conservatism and that cuckservatism is on… Read more »

Jews have been in revenge mode. Given the Narrative of WWII, they are hellbent on destroying Europe, especially Germany. The influence and pressure applied by NYT and globalism(largely funded and steered by Zionists) can destroy entire nations. NYT and Soros are pushing the Kosovo-ization of Europe. Look what ‘good’ Jewish advice did to Sweden, UK, and Germany. And when Hungary and Poland says NO to this gift of demographic invasion, the GLOB condemns then as ‘illberal’ and ‘undemocratic’. These are the same people who are cheering the punching out of ‘nazis’ who can be just about anyone they don’t like.… Read more »

When Emma Lazarus called out to the huddled masses in the 19th century, there was a good chance that many of the poor and wretched in Europe were indeed people of innate ability who weren’t given a chance over there and could thrive with opportunity and freedom over here. They were wretched by circumstances, not by genetic inheritance. Back then, most of the world was poor and backward, and this was true of the West as well. Since then, all the world has had ample time to modernize, develop, and build working economies. That includes the Third World and post-communist… Read more »

Emma Lazarus was a communist and a Zionist, who wanted an ethno-state for her own tribe while calling for the death of every Western nation through mass immigration. She showed her gratitude for the the people who took her and her family in by heaping scorn upon them and agitating to overthrow their government. She should have been hanged. Her shitty poem should be tossed into the ash-heap of history.

I had a look at The American Conservative yesterday. It’s more cucked than the neocons! At least Jewish neocons are manly in defence of their own Jewish interests… I can’t believe this is the same mag I used to subscribe to, that published ‘The Once and Future Christendom’ – http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/the-once-future-christendom/

Their cucking is so extreme that it’s not unreasonable to wonder whether people like Dreher represent a leftist/liberal strategy of defeating the opposition by leading it. It amazes me what a pack of thoroughgoing faggots they are.

It seems to derive from extreme Catholic universalism, so they are anti-Israel but also anti-American.

Dreher isn’t Catholic.

AmConMag was my gateway to the racial right. I used to make a trip to the local book store every month looking for the latest edition. I eventually got a subscription. It was a lifeline to political sanity. I cancelled my subscription when it was taken over by Ron Unz and it took a pro-immigration stance.

Yehudah Finkelstein

Same here. I had utter contempt for Bush and the Neocons. I thought the Iraq War was monumentally stupid. AmConMag showed me that that was a strain of thought on the right that wasn’t just Pro Israel Jews and their useful Idiot goys wearing flag pins. Buchanan and Taki actually made me Right Wing, then Spencer went to TakiMag and started planting the seeds for the Alt Right.
