NEW ON THE HARD TRUTH PODCAST: 2-Party Pox: The Republicans Suck AND The Democrats Want To Kill You
In last week’s “HARD TRUTH” podcast (7,646 Views)—David Vance, ilana and guest Jack Kerwick (introduced here ) cancelled the Grand Old Party (GOP). And on good grounds. The Republican Party HAS never stood up for you, WILL never stand up for you and is NOT going to do what it takes. Past is prologue.
As Dr. Boyd Cathey has observed, the “party which never conserves anything” had been exposed as such as far back as 1875. “The great Southern author, Robert Lewis Dabney, writing a decade after the end of the War Between the States … expressed presciently this tendency of dominant, post-war Northern conservatism”:
The history of the Republican Party is “that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is to-day one of the accepted principles of conservatism.”
(Another aficionado tells me Dabney was chaplain to the heroic Stonewall Jackson, which completes the picture.)
Some questions, however, lingered. Were we and our guest, Dr. Kerwick, being too theoretically pure? Perhaps conservatives should just put up and shut up about the Only Game in Town? Succinctly put by a viewer and reader:
“Yup! The Republicans suck. But the Democrats want to kill me.”
To that, David provided the perfectly plain answer, as is his wont. WATCH. So did Andrew Breitbart. WATCH AND SUBSCRIBE. David and ilana also get down to some “Monkey Business.” Look, “Monkey Pox” is not a concern, although The Powers are itching to make it a lockdown affair. All you have to do is avoid Biblically prohibited copulation.
(Oh, last week, ilana went with a woke aesthetic, as viewers of the “Hard Truth” podcast told her bluntly. So, no more unwashed hair on this May 26, 2022 “Hard Truth” episode. Ilana cleaned up “good,” as they’d say in the South.)
