Of NR and NPR

Today's Fun With Twitter stars the estimable J. Goldberg:

TWTIsCancer @twt_cancer
Here is better advice.  Put an end to funding anything related to NPR, that will help President Trump win even more.

Jonah Goldberg‏ @JonahNRO
I think this person thinks National Review = NPR.

Supreme Dark Lord‏ @voxday
In fairness, you guys have been moving that way for decades now. It's getting harder to tell the difference.

Jonah Goldberg‏ @JonahNRO
Uh huh. You're trying too hard, Vox.

Supreme Dark Lord‏ @voxday
Not at all. Look at everything from gay marriage to opposing the GOP candidate. If NPR hadn't moved further left, NR would have caught up.

When did all these conservatives become such snarkfags? 2008? 2010? This wasn't always this way. At some point in history, they all became GayConservative.

I wonder if NR will ever recover from their magazine having gone all-in on Trump opposition, only to lose repeatedly. Fuck 'em. Once it was put to me that "conservatives have conserved nothing", it was easy to put that kind of thing behind me.

When did all these conservatives become such snarkfags?

Jonah kinda started that movement, I think. His mix of politics with lighter humor and pop culture references was kinda refreshing if you were young and getting into conservatism in the 90s, especially compared to dour grumps like George Will. But over time the snark grew, probably because that's easy and generates more clicks and admirers.

Now in the Trump Era snark is all they've got. He defied every prediction they made during the campaign, and now he's in office delivering on things they claimed to want all these years. If they're not going to admit they were wrong about him, or admit that they didn't really want those things but were using them to manipulate Republican voters, what's left except throwing around squid ink to keep people from noticing?

The Washington Compost thinks pro wrestling is real.

Not surprising in that they think fake news is real, too. You know how they went on for months about the Russians? Well, now their narrative is that Trump demeans the "dignity" of the office. Given what DemonicRat presidents have done since LBJ, I don't know how they can keep a straight face. As per A Nod to the Gods:

I’m sick of the Dems saying Trump is inappropriate when:
•Ted Kennedy left a woman to die in a river.
•Bill Clinton had weird sex in the Oval Office with a barely legal intern.
•Obama ran guns to Mexican drug lords and gave billions to terrorist states.
•Biden makes creepy and sexist comments and publicly fondles women
•Hillary Clinton endangered Americans, released classified intel, wiped her illegal server and destroyed mobile devices, left 4 American heroes to die and lied about it being caused by some stupid BS video, sold nuclear material to our enemies, and took money from terrorist-producing countries.
•John Edwards was indicted for using campaign funds to hide his mistress.
•Rod Blagojevich is in prison for trying to sell Obama’s senate seat.
•Anthony Weiner…well, need I say more?

Yes, Democrat Party, please lecture us on what is “beneath” a political office. You have so much experience in that area.

Why endless wars?

"We have got to accept Big Government for the duration-for neither an offensive nor a defensive war can be waged, given our present government skills, except through the instrument of a totalitarian bureaucracy within our shores. ... And if they deem Soviet power a menace to our freedom (as I happen to), they will have to support large armies and air forces, atomic energy, central intelligence, war production boards, and the attendant centralization of power in Washington-even with Truman at the reins of it all." - William F Buckley Jr

Blogger ZhukovG July 02, 2017 12:12 PM  

Conservatives, since at least Buckley, have only existed to mop up any last pockets of resistance to the Globalist Left and their agenda.

Officially it was when Jason Steorts had a hissy fit over Mark Steyn making a gay cordial joke in an NRO article a couple of years ago.

He defied every prediction they made during the campaign, which is prima facie evidence that their entire grasp of our new reality is wrong.

The trend has changed (in politics.) Punditry is a lagging indicator.

The best news is that all these money-losing toys of the rich & famous will upset their benefactors much in coming years.

Blogger Gapeseed July 02, 2017 12:50 PM  

National Review should have taken some informal advice I gave one of their muckety-mucks back during the election - treat the magazine as a stock portfolio embodying the best of all the different conservative schools and traditions, and let at least one writer there write prominently in support of Trump as a hedge (Derb would have been perfect but for his ouster, and VDH would have been nice at the time). Instead, they put all their chips into Corridor Conservatism and #nevertrump, and here we are.

Which is kind of ironic in that it's unlikely they'd allow him to make Aliyah in Israel. His mother is a shiksa - at least by coversion going back a generation - to Epsicopalian Churchianty so he's not Jewish under the law as interpreted by the orthodox - I fondly remember Paul Gottfried's dig at him about not having 2 Jewish parents about a decade ago when he was singing high praises to the ongoing neo-connery. Goldberg himself was raised in Episcopalian Churchianity so he was no doubt taught about Judeo-Christ in Sunday Schul. He's be a great fit for NPR and both NR and NPR could save on expenses by merging. He's already full cucktard, so why not make that last tiny step into becoming a full-blown foaming SJW antifa.

'When did all these conservatives become such snarkfags? 2008? 2010?'


I would say after John O'Sullivan left as editor. I used to read National Review in the early 1990s. In the early '90s, National Review had as a cover story "Alien Nation" by Peter Brimelow. John O'Sullivan supported immigration restriction--he argued, in the magazine, against proponents of immigration. National Review also identified where libertarianism was correct--that the war on drugs was wrongheaded and should end.
There were some hawks on foreign policy in regards to the Middle East in the early 1990s, but National Review became more hawkish towards the Middle East in the late 90s.
