Victor Davis Hanson Quit National Review Months Ago

If this is a surprise, it's because National Review prominently features the syndicated column VDH writes -- but anyone can run that, if they pay the syndication fee.

I could run that if I had the jack.

Hanson got off this sinking ship.

Screenshot (261).png

Mollie Hemingway points this out because in this Human Events article, the author writes he will not be renewing his subscription to National Review, despite Victor Davis Hanson still being there.

He's not, dude. Cancel away!

But do start reading American Greatness, where he is now employed.

National Review is now run by a nest of never-Trumpers. During the past four years, almost every issue criticized Trump for something he said or the way he said it...

National Review, like the rest of the Washington establishment, disdains working-class populists.

In future, we can expect that the few Trump supporters that appear regularly in NR-- Victor Davis Hanson...

Nope.

...and Conrad Black come to mind--will be making fewer appearances, or perhaps, writing on different topics altogether.

Or even: "Not appearing at all."

Maybe the essence of NR's anti-Trumpism is as simple as this: Donald Trump was a populist president who appealed to working-class Americans; National Review, like the rest of the Washington establishment, disdains working-class populists.

In the most recent issue of NR, the editors write, "The GOP is like a shell, occupied by the hermit crab of Trumpism, an increasingly obstinate and delusional thing. Recovering the party from its current inhabitant will be a task requiring years of work.Ē(11) Another editorial in that same issue criticizes the Democratic House impeachment managers for failing to bring an airtight case against Trump that would have proved his obvious guilt of inciting a riot on January 6. Trump's conduct, the editors write, "in the post-election period and on January 6 will blight his reputation forevermore."

Who would have thought that National Review would help the increasingly radical Democratic Party gain power and ridicule the 75 million Trump voters--a Democratic Party whose leadership has lock-downed the nationís capital, freed up federal dollars to support abortion around the world, promoted transgenderism at the cost of womens' and girls' sports, made climate change the nationís most important national security issue, allowed illegal immigrants to remain in the country, promoted seemingly unlimited immigration at the southern border, and supported and reinforced a "cancel culture" that seeks to silence all opposition to their agenda.

I would have guessed. The Upper Middle Class Karens that are National Review's (dwindling) constituency have gone hard left the past ten years. They were always socially moderate (at best), but they're also cultish followers of Class Fashion. And as their class went hard left, so did they.

Obviously National Review would have to chase them to the hard left.

Covington Kids are so icky!

NR's editors are simply tone-deaf. Donald Trump reshaped the Republican Party into an anti-globalist, populist movement that will outlive Trump's political career. Trumpís supporters are willing to overlook style and vote for policies--conservative policies that NR once championed with intellectual argument and political realism. Sure, the intellectual argument--at least some of it--is still there in NR's pages. But the political realism is missing. Political realism means supporting, or at least not opposing, the candidate that promotes the policies you favor.

The only question is, will National Review go the way of The Weekly Standard?

Answer: Yes. It's already gone the Weekly Standard way in terms of content. It's now going the Weekly Standard way in terms of making up for its shortfalls in revenue by seeking out donations from the Stalinist tech monopolists.

At some point, those tech monopolists will realize that National Review no longer has an audience it can push their Corporate Propaganda out to, and will put their money somewhere else.

By the way, Victor Davis Hanson is now a colleague of Julie Kelly -- Julie Kelly, who National Review branded a liar and monster for daring to suggest that NeverTrumpers like David French were kinda liberal in her book NeverTrump.

She herself was a former National Review contributor -- but they smeared her viciously to prop up their liberal friends David French and Jonah Goldberg.

What a liar and monster to suggest such that these True Conservatives were leftwing whores who holler for a dollar, huh?

davidfrenchbias.png

National Review is now just corporate welfare for MSNBC "Conservatives."

Note: Even Corporate Fake Conservative grifter organization Heritage is making a big show of refusing and refunding donations from Google and FaceBook.

Will National Review follow? Doubtful.

I also think the "thought leaders" all across the political spectrum truly believe that we are all complete morons, and that we just mindlessly agree with and parrot whatever "smart people" say, and it annoys them endlessly that we are parroting Trump, and not them, since clearly they're so much smarter then Trump, but he's just a better conman then they are (they would say that part out loud, but they all think it.)

I think that a lot of them were conservatives, but they came up through already established institutions, which made them somewhat weak: they learned how to say the right things to impress those with the money. Trumpism is an actual reexamination of a lot of conservative assumptions, which scares them because it means that they might actually have to think for themselves.

The "immigrants are natural conservatives" line was maybe shallow, but given where Woke Whites have gone, the informed legal immigrant (and their working class, now American families of the last 40 years) may well be the "future of the party". Or at least a bigger part of it, if we go the way of Trump (who was uniting "POCs" as all just fellow Americans, not trying to tear us all apart by shades of whiteness disease)

And Harpo was self-taught, his harp actually being slightly out of tune from what it should be. He went to several teachers, but they preferred to listen to him play than attempt to teach him the "correct" way.

184 The "immigrants are natural conservatives" line was maybe shallow, but given where Woke Whites have gone, the informed legal immigrant (and their working class, now American families of the last 40 years) may well be the "future of the party"

Said it earlier - I can get along with working class minorities far easier than affluent whites. And I may not be the biggest redneck here - but I'm surely in the team photo. I am not scared - one bit - about any working class legal immigrant coming in.

I actually had zero idea about this guy, until the local station (KSFO) started playing him when they ditched 66% of Savage after the Rush show. When I heard that "voice" I had to go look him up. Of course my first listens were of him bitching about mean tweets. Tweets that were spot-on I might add.

I did hear somebody say that a lot of gen x'ers like this little dweeb, which is mildly depressing. At least maybe they'll fact check on their own and move beyond this little wretch.

187 I've read more than a few novels by Larry McMurtry. Liked his Westerns and historicals best; couldn't finish Horseman, Pass By, his first. He had a strange style -- you see it in Lonesome Dove and its sequels and prequels -- of jumping from one character viewpoint to another, sometimes in the same paragraph. I guess he knew what he was doing. But it's disorienting to read.

Because the other side isn't aligned in as much as they all see each other as Tools towards a common end.

Conservatives treat the individual as an end in and of themselves. As such, we are opened up to backstabbing.

Or it could be simply Hollyweird's corrupting influence. I remember reading "The Best Page in the Universe" page by that "Maddox" dude in the late 90's, early 2000s. When Maddox moved from AZ to LA, his views slowly "evolved", culminating in the LOL-suit against Dick Masterson and others where Maddox complained about being called a "cuck" and thought that entitled him to tens of millions of dollars in damages.

The conservative elite aren't traitors. They are unremittingly loyal to the ruling class. Their role was to maintain the illusion of representative rule while advancing the interests of the collectivist oligarchy. They never deviate from that goal.

The reason they all appear to be turncoats is that there was never a post-Cold War right-wing movement outside of Trump and his small group. It was all smoke and mirrors. None of them *ever* meant a word they said.

Now that the illusion is shattered it no longer makes sense to keep playing make-believe. So they came out of the closet.

299 A problem with the "natural conservative" immigrants of the last 40 years, is the illegal trafficking flows into their neighborhoods, and overwhelms what the "working class immigrant" could contribute to building better communities. It is almost like that is the (Democrat/DeepState) point of open borders, to enable the cartels to dominate Hispanic neighborhoods (and bring chaos/crime) ... which like in Chicago over 40 years, displaced blacks and whites. ... Cartels are huge and global now.

I have to disagree here. You can see the origin of a post-cold war right starting in the 90 - heck look at Pat Buchanan's run against Bush 41 as a start.

And the conservatives in government in the 90s got some wins, look at welfare reform.

But most of those people retired by the early 00s, and two mammoth events killed the movement - 9/11 and the ascension of Denis Hastert to being the most power Republican in DC.

Their writing styles left a lot to be desired too. Very wordy, lots of nuance that I found unnecessary. A couple of paragraphs is about all I have the attention span for and if you can put the gist in the first couple of sentences I'm smart enough to figure the rest out.

Actually, they are already dead, anybody who uses their machines or software from now on will automatically be assumed to be cheating.

Their best option is to shut down and wind up the company.

Chimneys.
I built chimneys and fireplaces and retaining walls.
All summer. Every summer.

Started with a bar, shovel and steel rake and a wheelbarrow in the spring.
Graduated to the hoe, trough and wheelbarrow.
Eventually you got to add a trowel.

Get ripped, though.

349 Boy are they going to be surprised in 2020. Things are not going to go the way they think they will.

Yeah guys you keep trying to root that hermit crab out of that shell.

Meantime, Trump will be creating a media monster that will put you to shame and you will find out how little influence you have because the Dems/libs won't listen to you unless you're dissing conservatives and conservatives won't be listening to you because never Trump.

Gonna be difficult to pay the bills after a while cause the libs got bigger fish to fry than to keep you all at the ready to attack conservatism on demand.

Quite the contrary, my friends. Quite the contrary.

Nothing like getting borderline hypothermia for an 18 hour shift for, oh, say, 40 days in a row without a single day off. Builds character, it does.

375 "A sane immigration policy might look for evidence of what they conserved in their home countries?"
USA did some interventions ... but the commies infiltrated maybe more than we managed to "help". The Woke Pope is out of that commie influence era maybe. But yes, Legal Immigrants would need the full American Civics lessons ... some get that, but the overall "Hispanic Neighborhoods" just get the cartels expanding their turf. ... (and open borders just encourages/enables/funds that). ...

If their is a regrouping to occur, after Wokeness (and commies) also infected USA, it will prob ably include many immigrants that escaped their own country's tyranny (like immigrants from Cuba, or old iron curtain countries) ... maybe. We are retrenching now? ... But the Death Star of DeepState proved to be fully functional .. stole election, prosecuted resistance, in jail without trial.

379 The deposition Mark Steyn gave regarding the Michael Mann lawsuit is worth reading. Find links on Steyn's own website.

NR bailed out of the lawsuit by throwing Steyn under the bus. They claimed he wasn't, had never been, an employee. Not a contributor. No more than a guy who posted there. Like me, posting here.

As happy as I would be to be compared to Steyn, I see why HE would be unhappy about being compared to ME.

380 The good thing about Dominion suing FOX News, is that some of their people actually did some journalism, and pointed out the actual data that documented what we now call "The Steal".
So much of the discovery is done before it starts, and what they don't know, they do know what to ask for from Dominion. Like the source code to their voting machines, and testing some of those machines still in state hands. Also, wouldn't this let FOX subpoena all paper ballots from those 6 Blue cities? Then, hand count them.
It's a whole lot cheaper than paying $1.6 Billion.

Discovery will be a real beyotch for Dominion, unless of course, the case gets in front of an Obama judge. Then, all bets for revealing the truth are off.
