"The conservative movement deserves to die. "

It’s hard to mistake the trajectory of official “Conservatism” as anything other than a gradual degeneration and dumbing-down.
NR has gone from James Burnham and Russell Kirk to Kathryn Jean Lopez and various man-children spouting human-rights doctrines. A part of me, a demonic part of me, is thus quite happy that The Derb was next on the list. It makes the mainstream Right much stupider...more defined by the Goldbergs, Ponnurus, Lowrys, and Lopezes of the world...and more obviously a racket and dead-end. The conservative movement deserves to die. And it must be fully de-legitimized before we can build something new in its place. The firing of John Derbyshire brought us a step closer. --Race-Baiting"...

Your Say

So is this the corollary to O'Sullivan's Law? That all explicitly libertarian and classically liberal organizations over time become ineffectual mediocrities?

Conservatives are such rule-following people that no matter how foolish the PC rules become they still try to follow them. Conservatives at almost every level prove they are unwilling to fight. But, the disturbing thing is that when you point this out to Conservatives they think it's a compliment.

If you weren't in an argument or confrontation with a Liberal today you missed an opportunity. We are in this mess because each of us thinks someone else will ride in and rescue us. There is no "someone" and the rescue is ALL of us confronting liberals every day until they grow tired of the harassment and they change.

Have you donated to John Derbyshire or protested his firing?
