America is faced with a choice. Do we acknowledge what we are — the greatest power in world history, complete with the obligation to defend our interests — or do we sink into a warm bath, eat ourselves into morbid obesity with deficits and welfare spending, and wait for China?— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 31, 2021
I had a good laugh watching this segment.
Aren’t conservatives supposed to study history? Aren’t conservatives supposed to be wise? Aren’t conservatives supposed to be skeptical of utopian social engineering projects and mindful of cultural differences and tradition? Isn’t conservatism supposed to be based on realism and experience?
The last two weeks have shown that American conservatism is still conservative liberalism. It is none of those things. They’ve learned nothing from a 20 year enervating defeat in Afghanistan except that it is Joe Biden’s fault. They even want to go back in and do it all over again to own the libs.
Note: Progressives aren’t supposed to know shit about history or care about experience.
