I have news. Very shortly I will be leaving NR and joining my friends @JonahDispatch and @stephenfhayes at The Dispatch. I’m thrilled to be a part of this new venture, but I’m also incredibly grateful to National Review. It’s an indispensable institution. https://t.co/zhG6qxhgAR— David French (@DavidAFrench) October 8, 2019
Working for NR has been a great honor. And I’m grateful to have been a very small part of its more-then 60 year history. It contains many of the best (and bravest) writers and thinkers you’ll ever meet. Thank you, National Review, for everything.— David French (@DavidAFrench) October 8, 2019
Of all the news articles mentioning my departure from NR, this — hands down — has to be my favorite. “Huge proponent of drag queen story hour.” pic.twitter.com/q2XSS9YIom— David French (@DavidAFrench) October 9, 2019
Well, look at this: https://t.co/Ok82m71tol— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahDispatch) October 8, 2019
Big news in cuckservatism tonight.
We’ve known for a while now that Jonah Goldberg was leaving National Review to launch his own knock off version of The Bulwark. It turns out that David French is leaving with him and tagging along at this new venture after becoming a lightning rod this summer.
“Trump skeptics in the conservative media are gaining steam, adding two new outlets which are prepared to fight for attention among Republicans frustrated with the president.
National Review stalwart Jonah Goldberg this week announced the creation of The Dispatch, a site for conservatives who are skeptical of the president, which will compete with The Bulwark, launched earlier this year by former Weekly Standard co-founder Bill Kristol and commentator Charlie Sykes. …”
It is a strange world.
The Never Trumpers are clearly being downgraded within mainstream conservatism. True Conservatives are also leaving Congress like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker. And yet, they retain so much power within the Trump administration, the GOP Congress, the state legislatures and the federal courts that they have managed to ruin the Trump presidency.
