Occasionally Neoconservatives Annoy The Left A Little

Conservatism, Education, Left-Liberalism, Neoconservatism, Paleoconservatism, Paleolibertarianism

Jason Riley, of the War Street Journal Editorial Report, was joined by the rest of crew, on Fox News, to swank about being invited and disinvited to speak across the nation’s left-liberal campuses. The rest, Bret Stephens, Mary Kissel, Mary O’Grady, all expressed disinvitation envy.

Following Allan Bloom’s  impressive Closing of the American Mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students (1987), neoconservatives have been quite good at addressing multicultural political correctness in the modern academy, the replacement of the Western canon with bogus disciplines—political constructs, really—devoted to relativism, anti-racism, anti-sexism and anti-elitism studies. They were good at pointing out that “current works promoting multiculturalism written by women and minorities had replaced the classics of Western civilization written by the DWEMs, Dead White European Males,” to quote Phyllis Schlafly, in “Advice To College Students: Don’t Major in English.

On freedom of speech, neocon establishment circuit speakers limp along as well (although you won’t hear them introduce the deciding variable: private property. Where? On whose property do you wish to speak?)

For the rest, neocons seldom  challenge students on matters racial (except to blame Democrats and left-liberals for the plight of blacks), on foreign policy (some liberals actually like American military interventionism as much as the neocons), on Islam (OK, except for a few bad Abduls) or on immigration (a net positive).

Jason Riley should try never having been invited in the first place to speak to those campus “conservatives.”

I guess he could argue the marginalized Old Right is just not as smart as he and his neocon buddies. Paul Gottfried’s learned scholarship on American conservatism exposes the neocons as not very smart at all.

Donald Trump has certainly run rings around them.

Swearing Sombreros

Conservatism, Donald Trump, Education, Etiquette, Family, IMMIGRATION, Left-Liberalism

Conservatives are so like liberals in their parenting philosophy. They see a small kid in a sombrero swearing at Donald Trump’s supporters—and they shout exploitation. Poor little vipers are being exploited by their parents.

Crap. And hand me a brown bag.

Feral kids are foul, be they liberal, conservative, free-range kids or swearing sods in Sombreros. A good hiding in public would cure all. And I haven’t even commented on the great citizens these crappy kids will grow up to make. What an intake.

Kids making America great:

The kids, wearing sombreros and ironically holding signs reading “No hate,” screamed “F*ck you!” repeatedly at the passing motorists.

One of the children in the center of the action could be seen wearing a Bernie Sanders sticker.

Hillary Clinton campaign signs could also be seen in the crowd.

One sign reads “F*ck You Puto.”

“Puto” means “male prostitute” in Spanish.

Malia Obama’s Birthright Privilege

Barack Obama, Education, Family, Race

Malia Obama is a beautiful girl, but she’s not going to Harvard because of her superior smarts—not that the media celebrating her plans have asked about her SAT scores. Malia’s pedigree got her into Harvard. Her path in life will be strewn with rose petals because of her parents and her status as First Child.

Malia needn’t worry. Media didn’t ask for the academic scores of her parents; they won’t ask for hers.

Birthright privilege such as Malia enjoys is one of the reasons alum Ron Unz launched his “Free Harvard Fair Harvard” Campaign.

Is Your Kid A Burn-The-Wealth Bernie Sanders Zombie?

Constitution, Democrats, Education, Propaganda, Socialism

That “Bernie Sanders won 84 percent of voters aged 17 to 29, at the Iowa Democratic caucuses, according to entrance polls,” is nothing to rejoice about. Burn the wealth Bernie is beloved of young people not because they are so fabulously idealistic or clear thinking. That America’s youth are coming out for a socialist is because young people are propagandized by progressives, teachers and administrators, from K through to 12 and beyond. The closing of the Millennial Mind happens over time in your kids’ primary, secondary and tertiary schools, which are a monolith of progressive propaganda, day in, day out; year in, year out.

“The drive to lower the voting age from 21 to 18” resulted in the Twenty-Sixth Amendment, smuggled into the Constitution by statute. The Amendment artificially swelled the ranks of Democratic voters, which has further eroded any protections the Constitution afforded to private property, and swayed the balance of power in favor of those who “vote for a living,” as opposed “those who work for a living.”

Still, kids are propagandized before they turn 18 and well after. So I don’t know that repealing this liberty sundering amendment would help reverse the erosion of individual rights toward which the youth vote contributes.
