Since Trump entered the race, and started channelling a lot of resentment among Republicans at the establishment, I've seen a lot of "respectable" conservatives start to sound a lot like progressives. I've seen "respectable" conservatives defend the erroneous hatchet job by the Left against Trump. I didn't want to admit it, but I'm afraid the Alt-Right is correct: conservatives really are just mentally retarded progressives. And if they turn into progressives at the mere hint that the base has tired of their impotence and kowtowing, well, maybe it's time to turn to alternative channels. Seriously, I can't think of a single conservative victory in this century that was not handed down by Anthony Roberts- I mean, the Supreme Court. And yet people are supposed to fall in line and a case of Havana Fever for Rubio? -Sean
The Alt-Right is tiny and, like all radical movements, a combo of brilliant and crazy, and, alas, I think their assessment of US Conservatism packs a wallop. The US electorate gave them both houses of Congress in 2012 and so far they have accomplished...?And when it comes to the demographic death of the only people who have ever supported them, those of us who lack Melanin, they are abject cowards and collaborators. Trump, an outside chance, is probably our last chance to hang on for a while and an iffy one at that.But I do enjoy the discomfiture that The Donald causes among The Decent People. It's fun.
