Fourmilog review of Cuckservative

It is good to know so many intelligent people think well of Cuckservative: How "Conservatives" Betrayed America. From the Fourmilog review:
This is an excellent book: well written, argued, and documented. For those who have been following these issues over the years and observed the evolution of the conservative movement over the decades, there may not be much here that's new, but it's all tied up into one coherent package. For the less engaged who've just assumed that by voting for Republicans they were advancing the conservative cause, this may prove a revelation. If you're looking to find racism, white supremacy, fascism, authoritarianism, or any of the other epithets hurled against the dissident right, you won't find them here unless, as the Left does, you define the citation of well-documented facts as those things.

What you will find is two authors who love America and believe that American policy should put the interests of Americans before those of others, and that politicians elected by Americans should be expected to act in their interest. If politicians call themselves “conservatives”, they should act to conserve what is great about America, not compromise it away in an attempt to, at best, delay the date their constituents are delivered into penury and serfdom.
Read the whole thing there. And if you haven't read it yet, read Cuckservative.

Vox, Ilk, speaking as someone who is NOT American, will I find "Cuckservative" useful for the "traditional" right of my country (Greece), or not?

Perhaps one-fifth.

Kreator, "Cuckservative" is pretty American in focus but I could imagine it being pretty useful for people in other countries as a kind of case study. It might help you conceptualize how to make a similar argument for Greece.

Thanks Dave. I was slapping around some Cuckservatives/Cruzlims (yes there are many still out there)and use links to Vox's book as the final coup-de-gras.

For those who aren't familiar with the site, Fourmilab / Fourmilog is the personal site of John Walker, co-founder of Autodesk. Walker moved to Switzerland in 1991 and left Autodesk in 1994.

I saw in Dr Kelley Ross's essays [Kant Friesian School of Thought] on the problems with the Rinos [Republican in name only] and saw in fact just as much betray of American ideals under Republican administrations as the Democrats. So I am not surprised. Rather I am pleased other have noticed this.

That last line in the posted bit of the review was a solid hit out of the park: "[Conservatives] should act to conserve what is great about America,not compromise it away in an attempt to, at best, delay the date their constituents are delivered into penury and serfdom." *BOOM*-- well written!

@1: I found Cuckservative to be interesting and VD's demolition of the comparative advantage economic argument to be worth the price. Vox also sells himself short. I would estimate that at least a third is relevant to you. The globalists use a lot of the the same propaganda in each western country.
What is really needed is a country specific edition of Cuckservative for each country.

Cuckservative in paperback, please. I'll buy several copies.

Blogger Marsh May 21, 2016 5:44 PM  

I just bought the book and am halfway through it. It's so well written. I agree w/ Brandon, I can think of several people I'd love to give this book to.

@13: Cuckservative is the type of book you "accidently" leave in places for people to read.

As much as I want to read more Selenoth, I'm glad you've been putting it off to do stuff that's immediately necessary.

Anonymous mature craig May 21, 2016 9:59 PM  

I plan on buying it and reading it.

That sounds like a massive undertaking

Speaking of cuckservatives...

The willful ignorance and deliberate distortions of this hipster dipshit are nauseating. The author looks like a contender on Punchable Faces.
