Former protege of Bill Buckley says conservative movement has descended to demagoguery


David Klinghoffer, a former literary editor of the National Review, SAYS the conservative cause has been hijacked by loonies.

An excerpt:

With its descent to baiting blacks, Mexicans and Muslims, its accommodation of conspiracy theories and an increasing nastiness and vulgarity, the conservative movement has undergone a shift toward demagoguery and hucksterism. Once the talk was of “neocons” versus “paleocons.” Now we observe the rule of the crazy-cons.



  1. I’m sure he’s a great fan of Paul Ryan.

    Another fake. I bet that this guy subscribed to neocon baiting, too. What will he do next January? What will any of these fakes do after they finally lose control of the Republican Party in November?

    He doesn’t look like a fake conservative to me.
    Klinghoffer validates my opinion that conservatives are just trying to win news cycles until tyhey can get a plan together — for anything. He makes correct use of the term (race) baiting, unlike the new-speak version Snuss tries to label on Pat .. The version where calling someone a racist for their derrogartory comments on race is supposed to be race-baiting.
