Salon's favorite conservatives

In case you're looking for an official list of the 25 biggest cucks, this would appear to be it. The only real surprise is that Erick Ericksen and Ben Shapiro are missing from the list.
Liberals in shock over the the 2016 election were prescribed a heavy dose of reality. "Get out of your bubble," the doctors note illegibly read. It was a hard truth for the American left. They found out the U.S. was not as progressive as originally thought. Their steady diet of MSNBC and left-wing op-eds only reinforced biases and preconceived beliefs. The country's actual, collective tilt wholly evaded them.

One recommended solution: Search out opposing points of view. Turn on Fox News every once in a while; follow more conservative voices on Twitter. This would be an honorable endeavor for liberals, if it didn't expose them to pure lunacy on a regular basis.

With every right-wing follow added on Twitter, liberals inched closer to the likes of Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec appearing on their "who to follow" suggestions. A few brave liberals likely made the leap and added Cernvovich and Posobeic to their timeline, only to find their feeds polluted by offensive nonsense.

But what if we told you there are 25 conservatives actually worth following on Twitter? What if we said that there are conservatives that not only dislike President Trump, but also engage in a level of ideological introspection that has surpassed most liberals and offer you a better look at their fellows on the right? Wouldn't you have to check them out?

Well, here they are, the 25 must-follow conservatives on Twitter. And here are some reasons they like them.
  • an active voice on issues of race and inequality and has appropriately combated the white-nationalist movement fermenting on the right.
  • A former campaign staffer for Jeb Bush
  • An outspoken proponent of immigration and LGBT causes. She also believes in climate change.
  • a critic of right-wing media
  • a strategist for John McCain and John Kasich before becoming a CNN contributor
  • Jon Stewart notoriously relied on him for his analysis and commentary
  • an adviser for Mitt Romney

Perhaps I haven't read enough of his website (which in most situations is very much to my benefit) but Im pretty flabbergasted to see Popehat listed as some form of conservative.

At most id see him having a bit of old man 'curmudgeon and know-it-all'-nesses mixed in with the boiler plate (far)lefty talking/nagging points.

They still have no interest in understanding or reaching out to Whites with racial concerns. Good. Their delusion has been helpful.

Fewer and fewer are buying Salon and company's BS anymore. The top upvoted comments for the article are:

"Step out of your bubble by following more people who hate Trump!"

"Once I saw Ana Navarro listed as a "Conservative", I started Lol, stopped reading and scrolled down to leave this comment"

"None of these conservatives care about the immigration issue, the plight of the white working class. That is the divide in the republican party. People have the right to a society they identify with, one that cares about their plight."

"Article reads like liberal self-parody. Also demonstrates the degree to which 'conservative media' is now liberal trannies who 'identify' as 'conservative'."

Blogger bobby October 15, 2017 7:40 PM  

Someone should go back and see how many of those "conservatives" supported Hillary over Trump.

This is what intellectual collapse looks like. They're too triggered by opposing views, can only stomach the far-left of the right (and at least one isn't even a RINO). Also, the fact that they're making this list means they're so far inside their bubble, they don't already know these people. Mickey Kaus is farther right than most people on that list.

Blogger DonReynolds October 15, 2017 7:44 PM  

None of these are conservative in the least. This must be a joke by the Salon. I would not let any of these people clean my boots. They are vermin.

Why wouldn't the weepy Liberals watch FoxNews? They have more Liberal talking heads than Conservatives. FoxNews has been the best friend the Liberals ever thought of having...all under the guise of being "Fair and Balanced". That is exactly the reason why I stopped watching FoxNews a long time ago....Juan Williams, Jerry Rivers, Bob Beckel, Shep Smith, .....and their invited guests are much more Liberal.

Calling a moderate-left voice "conservative" doesn't make it so any more than calling a hamster a horse makes it one because it was born in a manger.

They have no idea. They still don't. i can't tell if they are really just that stupid and ignorant, or if they are so far left that they can't even see to the middle and think that list is conservative. They think those "conservatives" are acceptable because they support liberal/left talking points. WTH? Can they not see the complete insanity of that statement?

Blogger Tatooine Sharpshooters' Club October 15, 2017 7:51 PM  

Ana freakin' Navarro? She doesn't even have any pretend conservative "principles".

Most of them aren't even cuckservatives. They don't even try to fake it anymore. They're just center-leftists at best. The only one who I'd call a semi-conservative is Stephen Hayes.

Ana Navarro is an outright SJW who was given a high profile in the Republican Party to get them to cuck out on illegal immigrants. Once Trump got in she totally showed her colors as a propagandist and operative to legalize illegals.

@19 Lovekraft

Comments on you nice list:

1. Some of those writers got purged from National Review. Come to think of it, getting purged from National Review is a good sign.

2. Some of those writers, especially Ann Coulter, correctly argued that immigration can be a winning issue for the Republican candidate.

3. Some of your list showed more practical sense than the Never Trumpers and the Republican establishment. For years, Steve Sailer has argued that if Republicans would only increase slightly their share of the white vote, instead of trying to increase their share of the minority vote, the Republican candidate would win the Electoral College easily.
Trump vindicated that strategy.

not suprised to see shapiro isnt on the list. all in all, he isnt that bad.

He's the worst, because he's able to fast-talk himself out of positions that should have sunk him. Among other things, he was 100% sure that Trump stood with Planned Parenthood and "targeting political enemies" and opposed the Constitution and personal responsibility. If Ben Shapiro had had the only vote, we would have had a Hillary appointment instead of Gorsuch. I have yet to hear him admit how badly he got everything wrong last year. You're supposed to be impressed by how eloquently he BTFO liberals in debates, and forget all that. He swore that he would never, ever, ever support Donald Trump, and he demonstrated that in 2016. I take him at his word, and assume he will work against Trump again in 2018 and 2020. Most forcefully on anything involving Israel's foreign policy wishes, but in general too. If you start to trust him because he talks pretty on abortion or commies, he'll stab you in the back later.

He's never coming off the list. Every time someone says he's not so bad, it reminds me I really need to finish up my BenShapiroReallyIsThatBad dot com web site.

These folks and the GOPe are the remains of the Democratic party that got pushed out when it was occupied by the new left socialists. The question now is, if the present Dems don't make a comeback in the next election, will the cucks move over to re-occupy that party and leave the GOP to the nationalists or will they remain in the GOP forcing the nationalists to form a new party. The former is much more to be desired than the latter IMO.

Peggy Noonan got off the list by saying that Americans will fight against their own extinction....

Lefty journalists missed the fact that the voters wanted Trump and the proposed solution is for them to read 25 "conservatives" who are anti-Trump? LOL.

Watching your alma mater's groidball commercials funds the muh-dicking of your tribe's most nubile pussy.

Fan testosterone varies by team's win or loss. Perhaps that's why cucks demand the most masculine bulls.

almost half of those 25 "conservatives" are neocons, the rest are semi-liberals

So there going to ignore the whole point of the exercise, get out of your bubble and engage with people who don't think like you, and instead find people who are nominally on the right who basically agree with them. So, more Trump.

Still not tired.

Calling a moderate-left voice "conservative" doesn't make it so any more than calling a hamster a horse makes it one because it was born in a manger.

Forget who said this, but:

"How many legs would a dog have if you said its tail was a leg?"
"Five?"
"Wrong! It has four legs! It doesn't matter if you call a tail a leg, its still a tail!"

whittle, like so many establishment cucks, is a closeted homo. he's a prissy little thing (like the rest). wears fresh pressed panties every day and twice on sunday.

They want to block ban and no platform any conservative who still has balls, using out platforms as evidence.

This is a list of people you can read and still be a member of the progressive herd.

What if I were to advise Liberals that were surprised when their hands got burned sticking them into the fire that instead of listening to those who said "your going to get burned", that there are people who only said "sticking your hand in the fire sounds like a good idea, you just need to do it slowly". I'm thinking they'd pounce on the later idea. Here is a list of those giving such sage advice.

Blogger Cloudbuster October 16, 2017 11:41 AM  

I'm pretty sure Ken White would take exception to being called a conservative.

Blogger wreckage October 16, 2017 12:12 PM  

I.... I don't see any conservatives on that list. I suspect Shapiro was too much of a hardcore, red-blooded alt-right Alpha for their delicate constitutions; he has, after all, pointed out certain demographic facts about violent crime in America.

It's not just that Vox's ah... forceful... interpretation of those facts isn't allowed. The facts themselves are not allowed. They may not, and cannot, obtain.

Blogger Stephen Davenport October 16, 2017 12:18 PM  

I do not know who most of them are but I used to follow Stephen Hayes until he went full retard (Never Trump) and you never go full retard. Kat Tempf is ok, not sure why she is on that list, she is mostly a comedian type on Greg Gutfelds show. Navarro and Rubin are democrats and Kristol is kind of the full retards. I would have put Jonah Goldberg and Ben Shapiro on this list.

Ken White helped out some conservatives, but generally came across as liberal.

I remember Jerry Pournelle referring to "the egregious David Frum", who declared JP "out of the conservative movement" for insufficient enthusiasm for Iraq adventures. I'd rather read an old Byte than Frum.

Blogger EMyrt October 16, 2017 1:44 PM  

They're all Never Trumpers.
Popehat is at least, intellectually honest and sometimes insightful.
Allahpundit was interesting when Ethnic Mommy Bitch first hired him.
The rest I wouldn't cross the street to piss on (to borrow from Souixsie on record producers).

Congratulations. This is only the 2nd site I've seen that actually showed the list in an easily accessible way.
