Reno To Damascus

As the Trump story arc reaches a conclusion over the next few weeks, there will be a lot of writing and talking about the meaning of the last four years. The racketeers of the conservative movement have already concluded that the last four years were just an anomaly and they can go back to the same old rackets. Like career criminals, they learn nothing from the past. Others appear to have been chastened by the experience and are coming out of the other end questioning their old ways.

One of those post-Trump men appears to be the editor of First Things, the conservative religious journal founded by Richard John Neuhaus. The editor, R. R. Reno, published this in the old left-wing magazine Newsweek, in which he sounds more like Pat Buchanan than the typical conservative. In fact, his essay probably would have been accepted by the old paleoconservative journal, Chronicles, as an olive branch to mend the three-decade rift between First Things and the paleos.

What makes Reno’s post interesting is that he was a fervent anti-Trump advocate the last four years. He participated in the now infamous National Review symposium, in which they demanded the rules of the Republican Party be changed to prevent Trump from winning the nomination. His contribution was to offer up the left-wing slur that Trump was a fascist in a business suit and that the people supporting him were stupid and disgusting. They were “trumpster diving.”

There seems to be a great deal of spiritual distance between the 2016 R. R. Reno and the 2020 R. R. Reno, at least in tone, if not substance. In fairness to Reno, he has not been a running dog lackey of Conservative Inc. He has been more of a barking dog around the conservative caravan, as it follows the Left from fad to fad. Often a critic, but never an opponent and always there by the caravan at each stop. He is a critic of conservatism, but one welcome at their events.

This is not a new posture by Reno. During the 2016 Republican primary he made some very sensible observations about Trump and the dynamic in the primary. While most of the conservative racketeers were in the streets rending their garments to show their liberal masters, they were horrified by what was happening, Reno noticed the obvious and was willing to say it. That said, he made sure to underscore that he thought Trump was a “dangerous figure in our public life.”

This is not the first time the First Things crew has struggled to maintain their position as friendly critic of conservatism. Back in 1992, they found themselves in a similar spot when Bill Buckley was purging the paleocons. Most of what First Things claims to support fall on the paleo side, but the money and good living were on the neocon side, so they threw in with Buckley. As George Washington once said, no man is so virtuous as to refuse the highest bidder.

Now, to be even more fair, Reno and the First Things crew could simply be working the same racket they have for years. On the one hand they advocate traditional conservative positions on culture, economics, politics and so on, while publicly opposing anyone that attempts to build a political movement on those issues. They supported the Buchanan message, but not the messenger, for example. They sympathized with the Trump voters, but opposed their candidate.

We will know soon enough if the social conservatives from Conservative Inc. had an epiphany during the Trump years. The rally scheduled for January 6th in the Imperial Capital is both unprecedented and a harbinger. Unlike the Buchanan or Perot movements, the Trump movement will outlive its founder. The people who voted for Trump did so knowing that the time for reform is running out. Many now think it has run out and it is time for something to replace the corrupt system.

Where the establishment social conservatives like R. R. Reno come down with regards to things like the America First movement, led by Nick Fuentes, will reveal if they are just running the old grift or have had an awakening. CPAC is next month in Orlando Florida and AFPAC will be holding their event there at the same time. Last year AFPAC drew hundreds and this year will be even bigger. The people getting tens of thousands in the streets of DC are building a genuine movement now.

For social conservatives like Mr. Reno and the First Things crowd, Fuentes and his groypers should be their ideal vehicle. They can be a little coarse, for sure, but that’s true of all young people. Otherwise, they make a clean presentation and are not afraid to express their Christian faith as part of the politics. While the First Things people are at CPAC next month, they should consider swinging by AFPAC. Mr. Reno could sit down and have a chat with Fuentes. It can be arranged.

The question for social conservatives with regards to politics is what compromises should be made in order to participate in the system. This was the dilemma faced by Buckley and his conservative movement. In their case, there was no compromise they were unwilling to make in order to have a place at the table. For social conservatives to avoid the same fate, they will from time to time need to back someone who is willing to go inside and flip over those tables.

That should be the takeaway for someone like R. R. Reno. Trump was always an imperfect leader, but he was available and willing to go inside the Temple and toss over those tables. He was never a savior, just a disruption in the system. The people who voted for Trump understood this, for the most part. They knew if he busted things up, then it would open the door for the social changes long advocated by social conservatives and the writers of journals like First Things.

The great mistake of the American Right was to accept the proposition that the Left gets to pick their leaders. The Left told them to jettison Buchanan and the paleocons, so they did and got nothing for their trouble. One lesson of the Trump phenomenon is that this does not have to be the rule. Social conservatives can pick their own leaders and make their own tables. That should be the lesson to the leaders of social conservatism as they come to terms with Trump.

For all of the opprobrium heaped on the Frankfurters–and I heaped plenty myself–they actually had very little to do with the sorry state in which we find ourselves. If you seek the intellectual roots of AWR, you should look at the French pomos and their epigoni rather than the Frankfurters.

They’ll just make up a conspiracy that Donald Trump is still secretly president and running the government from the shadows with Qanon helping out, then claim it was all part of the plan. Anyone who points out how dumb that is will be called a “blackpiller” or a “defeatist.” Then they’ll be some fed in the comments telling people to “just do something and keep fighting.” VD will then be found dead next to a cup of purple kool-aid and Jordan Peterson’s new book on masculinity.

I’m ashamed to admit it, but in a perverse way I kind of hope violence is inflicted on the Trump supporters in D.C., just enough to spark violent riots throughout the nation. The propaganda organs are setting this up as Charlottesville II, the D.C. police and National Guard are preparing to defend and assist communist terrorists, and BLM and Antifa are waiting to attack. It’s a perfect storm and could ignite nationwide strikes and riots from our side for once.

It is possible that the Law & Order crowd in FedLEO has noticed and will change accordingly. It is therefore possible (questionable if “likely”, certainly not certain) for a different outcome this time. Last time, we all saw the local DC police doing the catch & release followed by en mass dropping of charges by the Soros DA of charges against the Soros’ militias. Feds have their own prerogative in DC on federal property, and can make federal instead of state cases. Prosecutions by less-partisan or even centrist AUSA’s instead of Sorosian local ADA’s will result in much different outcomes.… Read more »

Rand Paul also took to Twitter to whine that the DA in Washington won’t be pursuing any investigation into the BLM thugs who attacked him this summer.

There is a trend on Twitter of “XYZ’s Posting Their L’s” accounts where “XYZ’s” are journalists, lesbians, professional black people, etc.

Whiny “I’ve been bullied by Antifa! Wow, just wow!” posts from conservatives like Hawley, Rand Paul, Carlson and the rest could honestly be “Conservatives Posting Their L’s” or “Republicans Posting Their L’s.” They’ll cry like bitches about being bullied but they’ll never do anything about it.

There is an opportunity going forward for an ambitious politician to capitalize on the angst and resentment of Trump’s removal. As Zman said, the GOP at large hasn’t learned a thing.

New Men, willing to risk it could harness that growing untapped energy in the chaotic years to come. The old regime is primed for dethroning if a neo-Sulla is out there.

See Stephano’s post: while there still are some “based” sheriffs in small towns—and they often only get pushed out or are forced to resign after any “based” actions—be prepared to face anarcho-tyranny even outside the big cities.

Remember that this is the perennial weakness of conservatives: they downplay or look away from the evil in the big cities under the assumption that it could never spread to small town America, then they’re aghast when the same evil spreads to their comfortable retreats.

Cops follow orders. If those giving orders are normal human beings, they will behave in a reasonable manner. If those issuing the diktats are AWRs, they will attack whites for defending themselves against Hutus. And those giving the orders tend to parallel the local political culture. Cops in Lubbock will behave very differently from those in Portland, assuming Portland still has a police department.

Particularly on a force where the officers are non-white. Filling a YT full of lead is a signing bonus for them.

I noticed in Toronto that the vast majority of cops out enforcing social distancing tyranny at protests and businesses were not white. Possibly because the white cops turned down the assignment.

Expect more and more non-white cops on the force carrying out anti-white actions with glee. The blue are not your friends.

Financial incentives are never enough to fight back against the social, sexual, and self-image/self-esteem power of being on the Correct Side of History that is part and parcel of left wing morality. Minimizing police power is our best option: no really, defund the police. The Boers had the sense to get rid of their nukes before they lost control. The law enforcement institution of the area-formerly-known-as the USA is a formidable and deadly tool. We should not let the Enemy inherit it intact. NWA said nothing wrong. What… Read more »

There will be no reconciliation. America is broken, unless conservatives want to be ruled and represented by queers, menopausal harpies and harridans, and socialists. Conservatives of whatever stripe or tribe may be willing to talk and compromise. The left can’t. They will tear the country apart, and tear themselves apart unless they are stopped.

Z is right about not voting. It delegitimizes the system and it will cause the GOP to lose. Reno senses that the GOP is going to lose Trump voters, not the Dems but to not voting. He knows that will doom the GOP. (It’s actually already doomed due to demographics, but he’s too much of CivNat to see that.) I suspect that he’s sincere. But his “nationalist” ideas show how hopeless the GOP has become. A nationalist who can’t even use the word immigration isn’t exactly much of a nationalist.

Around 21% of French babies have a specifically Muslim name. Probably another couple of percentage points of babies are also Muslim; they just have a name that could go either way.

England is in better shape that France – or the US for that matter. But a little over 10% of births in England are Muslim and probably another 10% or so are non-White.

Our non-white population is heavily concentrated in certain areas – namely toronto, and vancouver.

Unfortunately the cancer is now spreading to smaller cities.

Asians and indians have a very low birth rate (lower than whites, and much lower than rural whites) but the immigration rate is so high that it doesn’t matter much. Rural ontario white TFR = 1.6-1.9 , non-white approximately 1.2. urban white seems to be 1.4-1.5.

I’m interested to see what happens. “Integration” is not really possible anymore because there just aren’t enough whites around.

Is there ever any “going back”? The faults within Christianity overran it and are presently fully exploited by it’s enemies. If the New Testiment had Ten Amendments perhaps that could have added a few centuries to belief but in the end, as we have otherwise seen, it wouldn’t have mattered.

Since spiritual religion has been rejected by the educated, scientific class it’s no longer relevant in the great scheme of things. It’s been replaced by the worship of “democracy”. There’s evidence of a process akin to the Reformation of the early 16th century in the failing religion of phony democracy today. In those days the establishment of the Roman church couldn’t eliminate the apostasy in their midst because they didn’t understand the cultural changes around them. They survived but in an attenuated form, surrounded by various Protestant sects with individual leaders having their own divergent ideas. It seems a similar… Read more »

From what I’ve seen, Conservative Inc. is scared sh**less of social conservatives. They fear that if socon ideas get traction in a campaign, most voters will flee the Conservative Inc. candidate. The funny thing is, D.J. Trump proved them wrong by welcoming socons into his coalition and not scaring off moderate voters.
The key to a viable path forward for conservatives is to provide a clear alternative to failed liberal policies and especially the failed corrupt politicians of the Left.

Someone once said, might’ve been Greg Johnson or Mike Enoch, that the best way to check how likely a movement is to be co-opted is to see if they’re willing to advocate for white people by explicit name. You don’t even have to talk about the JQ, you just have to be willing to say “white” just like the other side does. The argument is that if a movement cloaks support for white people in civic nationalist abstractions for easier populist consumption, those inherently timid abstractions eventually turn inward on the movement and make it vulnerable to TPUSAization.

Meanwhile, someone who notices things has noticed that the Graffiti Artist at The Pelosi Palace seems to have used masking tape to make sure no paint got on the bricks: Such a pain to get paint off bricks.

Red pill = you’ve woken up to how things really are; equivalent to an epiphany.
