Unfrozen Caveman Conservatives

The remarkable thing thus far about the 2024 presidential election is that the so-called conservatives, and therefore the Republican Party, have gone into this process without having prepared for it. They have experienced two presidential cycles that went entirely against their interests, yet they have not done anything over the last eight years to prepare for this cycle. Their plan, if you want to call it a plan, is to pray the other party eliminates Trump for them via lawfare.

We know with a fair bit of certainty that the party told the collection of munchkins showing up at debates that they expected Trump to be disqualified. In the first debate, the zombie-like Asa Hutchinson blurted this out during the questioning. In the last debate, Ron DeSantis said something along the lines that the option for voters is what was onstage due to Trump’s legal troubles. It was long rumored that he decided to run based on the assurance that Trump would be eliminated.

Now, that is a plan, of sorts, but only if you think the only problem you have as a party is this one man wrecking your fun. Get rid of the bad man and the party, along with the so-called conservative movement, can go back to the old times. They are even bringing back the neocon nutters to promote a dingbat. It is as if they think they are just one more court ruling from going back to 2000 when they could pass off a simpleton to their voters as the updated version of The Gipper.

Of course, Trump is not an isolated phenomenon. He exists because of what the so-called conservatives did in 2000 with George Bush. The populist revolt within the Republican Party is the response to the bait and switch, along with massive amounts of lying, by the party and so-called conservatives. The reason millions continue to support Trump, despite all of his well-documented flaws, is that the “party of Lincoln” thought they could fool all of the people all of the time.

The reason the party is unprepared for 2024 is their intellectual engine ran out of fuel back in the Reagan years. In retrospect, the 1980’s were the last gasp of the old bourgeois liberalism that defined America into the 20th century. Buckley style conservatism was a bug fix, a cumulative patch, to the progressive software of the 20th century and once that work was done, conservatism had nothing left. It was a room full of people trained to fix something that was about to be replaced.

It is why conservatism looks like a collection of unfrozen cavemen unaware of the time that has passed while they were frozen. National Review still puts out nonsense about how progressive cultural production is actually conservative. That is when they are not swearing that blacks will start voting Republican any day now. The reason that so-called conservatives are locked into the 1980’s is they evolved for the moment and once the moment passed, they no longer had a purpose.

In retrospect, conservatism of the Buckley sort was a reaction to one narrow set of claims made by progressives in the 20th century. Put another way, it was a delayed response to the reforms of the FDR generation, who were sure that government could right the wrongs of American society. Through force they could fix race, poverty, inequality and the trade-offs of the marketplace. Conservatism was a response to the failure of this project to achieve its aims.

With the end of the Cold War and the arrival of the Clinton machine, the old left of government reformers was replaced by a new generation of reformers. These were the sons and daughters of the managerial elite who were marinated in the ideas of post-Marx culturalism, once called political correctness but now called woke. It is the totalitarian project to cleanse the world of whiteness by harnessing the power of the institutions, like a team of horses pulling the reformers.

Conservatism has no answer to this because conservatism was evolved to fix the bugs of the old progressive software. As a result, the Bush years were not spent addressing the cancer unleashed by the Clinton machine, but instead poured trillions of new dollars on federal agencies as they ramped up the cultural revolution. White people sensed things were getting worse as a result of the Bush presidency. The Obama years confirmed this and thus the populist revolt began with the 2010 election.

What white people in America faced in the 1970’s was a government that was terrible at the basics of government, but focused on righting the wrongs of the world. The antidote was conservatism that promised to reverse this. What white people face today is an army of antiwhite bigots running the centers of cultural production and protected by the federal government. They need a movement and party that promises to reverse all of this, but instead they get unfrozen caveman conservatives.

That is what you see on the debate stage at these debate shows. With the exception of Vivek Ramaswamy, who is a Trump catspaw, the rest are some versions of what you can see at the Reagan Museum. They skim over some of the cultural issues, but refuse to address the racial issues. If any of them noticed that there are no more white people in television ads, he would rocket up the polls. None of them mention these things because for all of them, the present is a foreign country.

Nature abhors a vacuum, which is why Trump exists. The system is lucky in that Trump is not very good at politics. A more skillful political animal with Trump’s instincts would be the Red Caesar the system fears. The inevitable failure of Trump to scratch the itch that has needed scratching for decades will not make the itch go away. It will simply lay the groundwork for a more skillful and more cynical version, because in the end no political system can survive making war on itself.

This is an excellent article. In fact, its thesis would be good political science dissertation fodder if you could find a poli sci department that wouldn’t expell you and report you to the FBI for even broaching this topic.

One suggestion, however: lose post-Marx culturalist–such a mouthful–and replace with poststructuralist.

The conventional wisdom is that bill Clinton moved the party to the center and away from the liberalism of Walter Mondale.

But I think this mistakes what people really think of when they think of liberal. They mean the sort of technocratic Ted talk kind of liberalism. And in some ways it was bill Clinton who moved the party in that direction.

So would you guys agree that liberalism is a personality more than it is an ideology?

The issue in America is race. Clinton continued the war on whites, as did Bush II. That’s all that matters. They were and are the enemy. His wife can’t stop vomiting hate on the white population. Moving to the center on anything else is trivial, and if he did move anything to the center it was because he couldn’t sell the left’s beliefs, particularly their seething white-hating racism to the demographics of 90s America. Thanks to immigration they no longer need to fear the “Silent Majority.”

I have heard many of the Roman Empire/GAE comparisons for several years now. A subset of that is wondering if an “American Caesar” will ever arise. The subject is pretty broad and I am not one who believes that history repeats itself (although it DOES rhyme) so there is no need to go into the specifics. However there is Roman history factoid that is never considered and that is that there were many proto-Caesars before the real Caesar showed up. The first ones (The Grachii) and the last one (Caesar himself) are well known but there is almost 100 years… Read more »

He made common cause with a military guy and financial guy in the 1st Triumvirate of Rome, which is no longer possible.

The Clintons pulled off the great political coup of re-orienting corporate America and the rich away from the GOP to the Democratic Party. Outsourcing production and importing cheap labor has been a boon for corporations and their shareholders. All the woke stuff is just psychological warfare to prevent any reversal of the gravy train. The GOP still loves corporate money, which is why they have been unwilling to oppose the outsourcing of the economy and the browning of America, even though it is political suicide for them.

Yep. What’s kept a cap on wages? Immigration. It’s openly acknowledged and discussed (among the various economists that I read). That’s why the old-school left was anti Immigration. It hurt the wages of the workin’ man. And by damn, they were right.

The New Americans are likely also the biggest patrons of Wal Mart. That cheap shit and those wide-screen TVs top anything you can get in their nations of origin. Consoom, baby, consoom!

For whatever reason, the Regime apparently now thinks they can keep their NPC’s from seceding if Trump goes back into office, and he can exhort his followers to die for “their” country.

I hope both of those things are wrong, of course.

Even if, hypothetically, the top clouds have made their peace with another Trump term, there is nothing, zero, that they can do to get the great mass of the “left” to go along with it. The well is too poisoned. And that great mass of the “left” includes many high ranking people.

But tp be fair. the rehabilitation of Bush/Cheney does suggest that, given a decade, they could eventually do the same with Trump.

To be clear, I think the 2020 election was stolen precisely because the Regime knew the Left would flip out. Initially I did not think so but that’s what makes sense now. Do they really think the Left, which as you point out includes people well-positioned, can be kept in line? It seems it or the need for cannon fodder overrides that.

You may be right and certainly BOM as bogeyman gets out the vote and cheat for Grandpa Stinkfinger. However, Normie’s response could be very different. Normie needs motivation to get off the couch and Trump gave them that. Without Trump on the ticket, Normie might prefer to watch reruns of J.A.G. instead of voting.

This is the popular wisdom of the DR. It’s also largely wrong, or possibly even projection.

They have experienced two presidential cycles that went entirely against their interests, yet they have not done anything over the last eight years to prepare for this cycle. To be fair, the GOP really doesn’t need to prepare in any way because they really don’t care whether they win or lose. Sure if they win it might be easier to give tax breaks and subsidies to their donor cronies, but even if they lose there will still be enough of them in D.C. to see to it that their donors still get to keep their noses in the trough.

He didn’t think he would even win the Republican nomination. He was just having a good time speaking his mind and perhaps promoting the Trump brand. He thought he’d be lucky if he placed second. Then he won the nomination and didn’t expect to prevail against the hildebeest. When he did he was “shocked and then horrified.” What had started out as fun and games had morphed into something serious.

In The Candidate (1972), Robert Redford plays a Democrat running for a Senate seat in California against the popular Republican incumbent. He “can’t win” and so is free to “tweak the establishment”.

Of course, he ends up winning. The last scene of the movie is the Redford character looking at his campaign manager (played by Peter Boyle) and asking “what do we do now?”
