Cuckservatives: The Coming Conservative Crackup

By Hunter Wallace

What happened to “optimism”?

Matt Lewis:

“Does the rise of Donald Trump signal the end of conservatism as we know it? It’s premature to write the obituary, but one has to wonder if the patient isn’t terminally ill.

Generally speaking, the modern conservative movement in America has represented three wings, loosely defined as a) classical liberals/libertarians/fiscal conservatives, b) social conservatives, and c) national security/foreign policy/defense hawks.

Philosophically speaking, at least two of the three wings (fiscal and social conservatives) have every reason to oppose Trump, and the third wing (national defense hawks) should probably favor Marco Rubio or Lindsey Graham.

By my count, Trump should be 0-for-3. The fact that Trump is surging in the polls — despite this — suggests something is up. …

Could it be that the paradigm has shifted? Could it be that the three-winged movement has been replaced by Trump’s “three-ringed circus”? Could it be that the conservative movement is no longer driven by a coalition of fiscal conservatives, people of faith, and those concerned about foreign policy, but instead is driven by a coalition consisting of working class whites, blue collar populists, and anti-immigration hawks?”

Erick Erickson:

“The beginning of the end of the Republican Party has started. On Friday, I told you the Republican Party is dying. Then, yesterday, Ross Douthat in the New York Times echoed my key point.

Mine was that the Republican leaders in Washington would see the decline of Donald Trump as proof that they need do nothing to change. Like the Bourbons of France, they’d forget nothing and learn nothing. …”

Ben Domenech:

“You have to admire the theatricality of this moment, as Donald Trump fisks and then flings the New York Times over the heads of a cheering crowd. The poll numbers from serious organizations are consistent, and they illustrate Trump’s staying power and the desire for an outsider candidate. But it is not just theater: as Matt Lewis notes this morning, contained within Trump’s enduring appeal are the seeds of a conservative crackup.

Trump’s support is solid despite the simple fact of his policy positions in favor of higher taxes, gun restrictions, single-payer, partial-birth abortion, and recent past as a Hillary-donating, Obama-voting Democrat. None of these things can hurt Trump, because none of them matter to his supporters, and because the chief argument against them requires you to believe in the Republican Party as a vehicle for something different than the Democratic – a fact that is no longer an item of belief for many voters. …”

  1. One thing the Left has gotten right is that they view politics as a means to advance the interest of people. The modern right (1950-today) has used politics to tout abstract ideals but they have not spoken to the interest of any people. Trump may represent a paradigm shift on the right where the interest of people are being pursued in lieu of ideology.

    I think the three cuckservatives above lament that the days where they can play the Washington Generals, not upset the Left’s apple cart, get invited to the right cocktail parties, and remain relevant while drawing a handsome salary are over.

  2. Like I have been saying, even if Trump falls apart tomorrow, it will still all have been worth it because he has started a process that can only end with the Republican Party and the modern greater right wing as currently constituted being rented asunder.

    The modern conservative troika of right-libertarian econ-fiscal policy, social conservatism, and national security hawks, evolved to meet threats from the 1960s and 1970s. Today’s problems are different, economic socialism has yielded to neo-liberalism, therefore, right-libertarian economics isn’t much needed. There was only one Soviet Union to beat, and neo-conservative “security hawks” reacted to the diminishing marginal returns of their worldview by invading the world on behalf of duhmocrazy, and with few exceptions, most senior Republican Party elected officials were only ever interested in social conservatism as a vote grifting scam.

    Here in the real world, if you were born after November 6, 1966, you never could have possibly cast a vote for Reagan for anything (Election Day 1984 minus 18 years). Which means by election day next year, everyone 50 and under will be in that category, and really, not many 18 year olds voted in 1984 for Reagan or at all; a more typical Reagan voter was born in 1946, the first baby boom year, and such a person is 70 years old next year.

    Lamestream conservatism is staring into the abyss of its own obsolescence.

  3. Erick Erickson has a lot of nerve to be writing what he does. For example:

    Yes, exactly. The Republican Party is dying because the GOP in DC has gone corporate and K Street. They attack any Republicans who dare hold them to their promises. They’ve gone to war against Heritage Action for America, Club For Growth, the Madison Project, etc. They’ve blackballed any political consultant who does work for outsiders.

    In reality, this is just a relatively trivial example of internecine Republican politics, that’s nothing more than an irrelevant food fight between the Republican establishment and cuckservatives. None of that really matters to us and our kind of issues.

    Another irony is that Erickson is really a bad one for censoring and spiking not only any real immigration discussion, but any discussion that is even the wee slightest bit “non-respectable.”

    Erickson is himself part of the problem that Trump is accidentally solving.

  4. Traditional Americans are no longer content to vote for the Republican nominee because the party once in awhile throws a bone our way. The Republican party has been exposed for what it is, a country-club for globalist elites serving the interests of global corporations at the expense of the traditional whites who vote for it.

  5. This reminds me some of Rhett’s Union of the White Race of the South. According to polls, 88% of Trump supporters see the CSA battleflag as a symbol of Southern pride. The GOP’s abstract ideas about neo-liberal economics can’t compete with ethnic-racial identity. If Trump continues running as the White man’s candidate he can either take down or take over the GOP -either way is a win for us.

  6. “Could it be that the conservative movement is no longer driven by a coalition of fiscal conservatives, people of faith, and those concerned about foreign policy” – The conservative movement was never driven by those people.

    “Another irony is that Erickson is really a bad one for censoring and spiking not only any real immigration discussion, but any discussion that is even the wee slightest bit “non-respectable.””

    Erickson has a Twitter account he’s put a lot of work into. It would be very easy to troll it.

    ‘I think the three cuckservatives above lament that the days where they can play the Washington Generals…’

    So true. Don’t forget the Generals routinely being depantsed and humiliated by Meadowlark Lemon before thousands of White people and their kids all laughing hysterically at the hapless buffoons being outsmarted by smiling, likable, clever negroes.

    The owner and coach of the Harlem Globetrotters was Abe Saperstein. Who would have thunk it?

    As always, clueless Whites had no idea that in the culture wars, jews were playing chess while we were playing checkers.

  9. Trump speaks to my biggest (current) issues and he amazes me every day.

    Just torpedoing ¡Jeb! makes it all worthwhile. But let’s dream of more.

  10. Substitute:

    “Don’t forget the cuckservative Republicans routinely being depantsed and humiliated by Obama…”

    Or were they? Maybe they’re just fine with that.

  11. Optimism is only appropriate when they are the ones in power. The whole idea of the word optimism for them is simply to not question their authority.

    You see the same nonsense in corporate America where they proclaim optimism and positive thinking as the top virtue. Of course, it is all designed so that you never question their leadership – if you do, you are “negative.”

    Watching these losers write article after article back and forth to each other crying about Trump has been glorious. Their little political operation was always a house of cards – it only needed a charismatic alpha male billionaire to tear it all down.

  12. Don illustrates that the GOP is essentially false conscience. He’s a somewhat unique Marxist critique of the center right.

    Instead of fronting for Billionaires, whatnot just front the Billionaire? And my god, it works well.

  13. The panic in the Echo Chamber of Kosher pundits is a sight to behold.

    They cannot get to grips with the reality that they have created a political climate ripe for white identity politics of an explicit sort.

    Any fool can see that the Dems are there for Blacks, Browns, Harpies and Fags.

    What’s the rest of the population going to do in such circumstances? Sit at home or stage a revolt?

  14. but they have not spoken to the interest of any people.

    You’re forgetting the Israelis and billionaires.

    Or were they? Maybe they’re just fine with that.

    Sure, getting paid and getting laid. The cucks are the rank-and-file Republicans and conservatives. For that matter the alt right as well. Any white who doesn’t treat the left as the openly genocidal political movement that it is. Why treat with people whose basic immutable policy position is we want you dead. This is what makes conservatives cucks: they whine about white racism while lying about white-hating racism.

    I think the Republicans are putting their future hopes on Asians, that they’ll continue to get most of the white vote because whites will still (and increasingly) have no where else to turn, and well off Asians will vote against gibsmedat. In other words that their racial group interests will change from what they are today (anti-white) to basically (though unspoken) anti-black/brown after whites have been successfully politically dispossessed. About their loyal white constituency they don’t give a damn, just another business that was subjected to a hostile take-over and then busted out for all it was worth and burned for the insurance money.

    ‘Why treat with people whose basic immutable policy position is we want you dead. This is what makes conservatives cucks: they whine about white racism while lying about white-hating racism.’

    You nailed it!

    Upon further investigation of Matt Lewis, I have discovered that he is a cuck of the highest order.

    In an interview he gushes over Tony Kornheiser and Larry David.

    Lewis: ‘I could talk about Mr. Tony all day. I love TK for the same reason I love Larry David. I’m not successful enough to be a curmudgeon, but I enjoy living vicariously through them.’

    Living vicariously through them. LOL

    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2009/10/28/catholic-league-blasts-larry-david-curb-episode-urinates-jesus/

    Comedian Larry David is under attack from critics who say he pushed the mocking of religion and Christian belief in miracles over the edge in the latest episode of his HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which the cable network defended as “playful.”

    On the show’s most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ, causing a woman to believe the painting depicts Jesus crying.

    Deal Hudson, author and publisher of InsideCatholic.com, said he doesn’t find any humor in the episode.

    “I don’t think it’s funny,” Hudson told Foxnews.com. “Why is it that people are allowed to publicly show that level of disrespect for Christian symbols? If the same thing was done to a symbol of any other religions — Jewish or Muslim — there’d be a huge outcry. It’s simply not a level playing field.”

    Cucks sure are twisted.

    But wait, there is more. Worthy of the cuck hall of fame.

    Interviewer: What is the most meaningful novel you’ve ever read (and why)? What film in your life has resonated with you on a deeper level (and why)?

    Matt: ‘I’m really fond of “To Kill a Mockingbird.” If I have another son, I might name him Atticus.’

  16. Better the Dems than these specimens who combine weakness, buffoonery, homosexual tendencies, disdain, cowardice and anti-white racism.

  17. American conservatism was never a truly coherent ideology in the first place. Any true social conservatism has to start with immigration control. Otherwise what society are you trying to conserve?

  18. “they whine about white racism while lying about (supporting) white-hating racism.’

    Right on time Glen Beck, the cuckiest of the cucks, chimes in:

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/09/01/the-life-changing-lesson-glenn-beck-says-america-could-learn-from-iceland-right-now/

    Beck praises the pollution of Iceland and America. Denying mass Arab immigration is the New Holocaust, he says. “I mean, what’s the difference between … the one barrack in Auschwitz that held female prisoners that were used as prostitutes, used as pleasure receptacles, forced to have sex — what’s the difference between that and the 8-year-old girl that just escaped ISIS who has testified that she was raped up to ten times a day every single day?” What’s the difference between ISIS raping girls and immigrants in Britain exploiting young white girls, or making Malmo the rape capital of Europe? Glen Beck’s silence over the latter, that’s the difference. What’s the difference between the Nazis committing genocide and you advocating genocide against your own people, cuck?

    If not taking in war refugees is a crime shouldn’t your good friends in Israel be taking in a few hundred thousand refugees from wars in the Middle East or Africa? Why is it a crime for whites not to take in “refugees” but not Jews in Israel? Because you’re a treasonous little cuck, that’s why, whose basic gig is profiting on his own peoples extermination by helping to keep any talk of that extermination from public discourse.

  19. Reagan swept into the White House in the 1980 election with a fairly solid White working class electorate, and the promise of reducing government. But he never cut any serious bureaucracy, and the globalization policies continued by his successors pretty much undermined the White working class.

    It just may be that Trump is mobilizing that same White working class support. More Americans are alienated from the system.

    Elections are one front in a greater struggle. You also have the efforts of various White and Southern nationalists, who appear to be making encroachments via the Internet and street protests into mainstream discourse. The popularity of the “cuckservative” meme is evidence of this. It just may be that the Obama administration overplayed its hand by de facto supporting the post-Ferguson rioters, and by tolerating the anti-Confederacy jihad of recent months.

    If so, a considerable backlash may be brewing.

    There are two major objectives for nationalists/true conservatives:

    1: Gaining political power, but more importantly, implementing pro-White/true conservative policies (as opposed to selling out ala the GOP for the last three decades).

    2: Creating a larger movement which can take it to the streets and reclaim cultural power.

  20. The United States of America was founded as a Deistic/Atheistic social experiment in 1776. Thomas Jefferson was one of the greatest enemies of White People, first stating that All Men Are Created Equal, then while Virginia Governor he and Patrick Henry thought that interracial marriage was the solution to the American Indian problem and tried to encourage it by law. He even demanded Washington recognize the French Jacobin Government which trumpeted All Men Are Created Equal and had Negroes sitting in their Revolutionary Convention. For a man who supposedly realized that Negroes were unequal, he did not have White or Christian interests at heart. When Jefferson’s buddy Madison wrote our Constitution, he made darn sure to keep God and Jesus Christ out of the document.

    Fast forward to 1848. John C. Calhoun’s seminal speech on the Oregon Bill he destroys the lie of ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL rightly pointing out that two humans were created, the rest were born and derive their rights not from GOD but from the culture at large. We are all born into our place in society and how far we may rise is up to our own efforts and the laws of our culture.

  21. Fast Forward to 1861. The Confederate Constitution invokes the aid of Almighty God, but Generals Lee and Jackson criticized the exclusion of Jesus Christ, likely through the efforts of Judah P Benjamin the Jew to exclude it. The Confederate Constitution, while echoing parts of the US Constitution corrected the failings of the original document. It proclaimed Dixie a nation under the authority of Almighty God and allowed the states almost complete control of their population BUT unlike the U.S. Constitution, certain things were the domain of the Confederate Government. One was that Confederate States could not qualify voters, a voter had to be a citizen of the Confederacy before he could vote. It was also assumed that Confederate States could not pass laws that harmed the nation such as legalizing interracial marriage or other abominations.

    The 1787 Constitution allowed states too much leeway in important issues such as marriage, in which states were allowed to set all of their own rules. Northern States felt that Social Convention was enough, Southerners knew Social Convention needed the rule of law to protect it. It also allowed states to qualify voters. In 1787 only Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia prohibited FREE NEGROES from voting. By 1861 this abomination was isolated to New England. Although Dred Scott had said Negroes were not U.S. Citizens it still allowed them to be State Citizens as we had 2 levels of citizenship under the 1787 Document.

    Too often, Neo-Confederates and Southern Rights men proclaim that Lincoln destroyed the original Constitution when in fact the original document was not worth saving. The Confederate Constitution was a superior document to Madison’s Constitution because it corrected Madison’s mistakes and eliminated the perverted Deistic Bias and placed Dixie under God’s Laws.

  22. The Confederacy legally still exists, all that must happens is for conventions to elect local and state governments, state governments to elect the new Confederate Congress, and the Congress elect a Provisional President. From there, we move on to real elections to make it official. This is my understanding. Is this correct Hunter?

    Absolutely correct!!
