Tim Mak of Frum Forum has a new hit piece on Alternative Right. The article is called “The New Racist Right.” It is standard fare conservative boilerplate.
I would have responded to this trash yesterday, but I am on the road again in Raleigh, NC. Oddly enough, David Frum is also in town. Yesterday, he spoke at a free public lecture at NC State. If I had known about it at the time, I would have shown up and asked him a few uncomfortable questions.
The thrust of Mak’s article is that Alt Right is “racist,” “sexist,” and “reactionary.” Excuse me, I can’t help but laugh here. When my roommate read this piece, his dismissive reaction was “Frum Forum is such a gay ass website.” That concise statement encapsulates everything I had to say.
Mainstream conservatives are just so, well, pathetic. Frum Forum is a retread of mainstream liberal garbage from twenty years ago repackaged as the latest, cutting edge form of “conservatism.” All the terms of abuse used against Alt Right were imported into “conservatism” from the Left. “Conservatism” has been so completely co-opted by its enemies that the term is more or less useless.
I’m increasingly of the view that “conservatives” have a certain look about them. Jim Giles introduced me to this theory. I’ve begun to notice it myself since I have been in Virginia. Conservatives are always smiling. They also look like … there is no polite way to say this … but they usually look like pussies!
Check out Tim Mak. This Beltway hack couldn’t fight his way out of a wet paperbag. These people are going to preserve our culture? Please.
Note: I wrote this article yesterday but passed out before I could post it.
