Once again, so called Establishment Conservatives prove that the only America they really care about is the one that lives in their heads, built in a model that prioritizes their ideology and mocks actual American citizens.
Today’s example: uber Neocon and NR/Ricochet stalwart John Podhoretz is lecturing us about immigration, and doing so by attacking Stephen Miller.
Apparently, since Miller isn’t on the Open Borders train, he’s an apostate Jew, judging from the links Podhoretz gives to back up his attack. Miller’s crime here, apparently, is that he demands that, among other things, we only take legal immigrants and that they should meet some minimum qualifications like speaking English. The Horror! And what links are those that JPod supplies for his attacks on Trump admin officials? Why, it’s from the liberal JTA, with a shaking-finger-at-you story about how America is a nation of immigrants. Open those borders, you heartless Yanks!
Conservatism failed because it conserved nothing. Worse, it actually became hostile to Americans… their people, language, traditions. It increasingly denies that there really is any such thing as an “American”, and that we’re all just economic units to be replaced with cheaper models by cosmopolitans that are really more “citizens of the world” than patriots of a country. In short, there’s nothing conservative about the conservative movement post-Reagan (and even HE bought into some really bad ideas). People like Podhoretz remind me nearly every day why I walked away from that whole scene. They hate you, Joe and Jane American. They really, really hate you. Unlike the Left, they just wont tell you that to your face.
