Okay, you have every right to expect that, by now, anyone purporting to be a conservative thought leader – ugh, what a lame term – will be conservative woke, sometimes known as “based,” by now. There’s no excuse for still living in a Mitt Romney/Candy Crowley gimp cellar of crippling principles and principled failure. If you presume to lead us, you need to understand that we are in a life-or-death struggle to preserve our lives and liberty against a Marxist offensive unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, and that we need to fight back and win or go down in defeat. We’ve lost patience with the softcons, the surrendercons, and the sissycons who demonstrate that they do not. Just ask Kristi Noem, who waffled and lost her shot forever.
This is all coming to a head again with the DeSantis-Disney war and the fight in conservatism over tactics and strategy. Let’s be clear before we proceed – we absolutely have to have a real debate about the new aggression that the vast majority of us believe is absolutely necessary to win this cultural war and preserve our liberty. What the combative mode people like me propose has potential downsides and there is a risk of abuse. We are conservatives, not libs, and we can have a debate – thanks to Elon Musk, we can have it in public on Twitter. Everyone who says “Let’s think this through” is not necessarily a simpering Jeb!-like wuss begging people who laugh at him for some claps. We have some good faith critics, and we need not fear an argument. But then, there are also a bunch of losers who never met a liberal they didn’t yearn to surrender to. The entire Bulwark staff and the other cruise ship cons are all deep in the libs’ trick bag, shaking their (former) conservative credentials on MSNBCNN and hoping credulous normies will take them home for the night [Emphasis mine].
