Conservatism, as we have long discussed, is dead. Though perhaps it doesn’t seem that way, because its corpse is seen ambling about with a caring look on its decomposing face.
I do not speak of neoconservativism, which was always colonial progressivism, which spoke the conservative dialect, but only as a mechanism to gather more arms for its side. With the rise of Trump, neoconservatives threw off the mask and have rejoined their comrades.
Let’s instead look at a small slice of applied conservatism. Actually, two such slices, since they reinforce one another.
Trump recently appointed Richard Grenell as acting director of national intelligence. He was up til then the Ambassador for Germany. Grenell is open about his preference for sodomy, and as reported by the NYT, he was the one leading the “global push to decriminalize homosexuality.”
This in itself is neither here nor there, except to show Trump is in the conservative camp, at least partially. The real example is in this tweet about Grenell by Guy Benson, who identifies as a conservative journalist.
NYT: “Mr. Grenell, who has pushed to advance gay rights in his current post, would apparently also be the first openly gay cabinet member.”
Ever. In US history. Appointed by Trump.
Ric’s identity isn’t a qualification, of course, but this is historic & significant. [Flag of United States Rainbow flag emojii]
The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was also “historic & significant.”
Benson, like Grenell, favors sodomy, which, as tradition has it, is a most vile sin that cries out to Heaven for justice. Benson is also under the delusion that he is married to a man.
Conservativism therefore isn’t aligned with tradition.
Now the second slice, this time from another self-identifying conservative, who has a piece in the Washington Examiner about a celebrity who is touting his child (the celebrity’s child) as a “transgender”.
A transgender is a person everybody knows is pretending to be or is delusional enough to believe he or she is the opposite sex. To say transgender woman of a person instead of just woman is to acknowledge the truth. If people really believed a transgender woman was a woman, they would not use the prefix.
Polumbo says this:
It’s a very difficult thing for a young person to experience profound gender identity confusion. It’s a good thing that the Wade family has responded with love, rather than hate or rejection, to its child’s pronouncement. But in his public acceptance of Zaya’s gender identity, Dwyane Wade has taken things way, way too far.
This is effeminacy, a characteristic trait of zombie conservatism. Of course the father should have reacted with hate: hate the sin, hate the loss of sanity in his child, hate the culture that supports the lie. The father should in no way countenance the lie. If the child is truly delusional, then get the child help.
As an aside, we can ask: help from whom? Therapists? Recall the “recovered memory” panic of the late 1990s, a panic that led to jailings, loss of families, heartbreak, all because of idiot therapists who entertained the asinine theory that people can “recover” memories. The memories were always of a terrible nature, of course. And it’s now those same therapists driving tranny madness.
The athlete has now come out and said that Zaya internally identified as transgender as young as 3 years old. Wade and his family appear to have uncritically accepted that a pre-teen can have completely figured out his or her gender, sexuality, and identity, all before even entering high school. This is irresponsible. It’s also harmful to the acceptance of gay and transgender people more broadly.
Internally identified? Skip that, and focus instead on Polumbo’s implict acceptance that older people can be “transgender”, or even can be “gay”, as if these were different kinds of creatures. People are similar to normal human beings, but have a different essence or nature, that difference in being “transgender” or “gay” is just like difference between male and female.
Polumbo—and Benson, too—thus has lost the argument. He is a progressive. He does not disagree with any progressive idea, he only quibbles about timing, about when a person’s madness becomes real.
That thing that unites Benson and Polumbo, and conservatives in general, is that they have bought the progressive idea that truth can only be known by appealing to the masses. They don’t see, as reactionaries or neo-reactionaries do, that human nature is fixed and not fluid, that human nature cannot be legislated away.
This crisis, like all crises, is spiritual. Conservatives don’t see that. Reactionaries do. This is why conservativism fails, and will continue to fail. It accepts the same basic premises as progressivism.
Addendum I don’t know where else to put this, but everybody should read this most important article on autogynephilia, which is responsible for much of tranny madness.
