National Review: Hey, How Did the Blessing of Liberty We Know as Drag Shows for Children Get So Out-of-Control...?!?!

For National Review, the political landscape is just an endless series of hills which are not worth dying on.

Except for destructive gatekeeping attacks against the right and attempting to relive the past glory of #Canceling the John Birch Society -- National Review lives on that hill, dies on that hill. Forever.

But anything else?

It's beneath them to get into struggles over such crude matters.

I don't want to blame Cooke for this -- he didn't come up with the Blessing of Liberty formulation -- but is he really pretending this just became an issue now?

No, it's been an issue for years -- and National Review has been on the other side of the issue.

And if Cooke and National Review can't admit that easily-google-able fact, then no one should pay any mind to them.

A "here's how we got this wrong" article is interesting. An article on the limits of libertarianism -- especially in an age when the forces of libertinism are using government force to force libertinism on the unwilling -- could be interesting.

But just pretending away past mistakes? Pretending they were never made? Pretending that today is Day Zero and this question is just being considered for the first time?

That's just more stupid propaganda. Just more stupid, boring, tedious propaganda in an age drenched in stupid, boring, tedious propaganda.


Meanwhile...

There's a very disliked mating strategy called Not Like the Other Boys. Male Feminists use this tact. "I'm not like the other boys." I hate other men, they're so aggressive and icky! Now here drink this drink which I have certainly not added ruphinol to...

Girls have started using the Not Like the Other Girls dating strategy, I hear. If a girl is really pushing her tomboy cred and talking about other girls sucking and boasting that she routinely no-scope headshots 90% of enemies in Call of Duty, she may be deploying the Not Like the Other Girls strategy.

People don't like these strategies not only because they're Fake and Put-On -- come on, all personas are Fake and Put-On, except this one you're reading right now, which is Totally Real (I'm Not Like the Other Bloggers) -- but because these strategies of course attempt to elevate the person employing them while pointing a flamethrower at all other members of that person's gender, burning them to the ground.

The elevation entails immolation of all competitors.

Obviously, I'm bringing this up because for at least a decade, if not for more, National Review has been pursuing a really nasty Not Like Those Other Conservatives dating -- erm, donor-supplication -- strategy.

Being Totally Coolio with Drag Queen Story Hours, and being quite nasty to any actual conservatives who had a problem with it, was very much a part of the Not Like The Other Conservatives branding strategy.

On behalf of all the nasty "Other Conservatives" they've been immolating with their abuse, let me say, "Yes, we know you're not like us, in fact, you're nothing like us at all, now get the fuck out and join your allies on the left without apology and with no further lies about your actual allegiance."

t'fuk'outta here, National Review, with your Johnny Come Lately poser shitlib bullshit.


National Review

The conservative magazine for liberals.

It's seriously as if they're attempting to craft a "conservatism" that will be deemed "Safe for AWFLs (Affluent White Female Liberals)," aka, their wives.

When I was young, we had trans, and green haired wierdos, and homosexuals. They all lived in Greenwich Village and Fire Island and Provincetown and Key West. We could go to see them if we wanted weird shit. We just needed to plan to go to where they were.

Now, they are everywhere

If a girl is really pushing her tomboy cred and talking about other girls sucking and boasting that she routinely no-scope headshots 90% of enemies in Call of Duty, she may be deploying the Not Like the Other Girls strategy."

That's not new. Though usually it's somewhat less offensive in that they simply ape the behaviors and pursue the activities of the sort of guys they're interested in. It'd be nice if they realized guys don't want to marry a mirror image of themselves.

I, too, have two middle names. I usually just use one of them, as my full name doesn't fit comfortably on forms (eight syllables total).

This is how I ended with an extra ballot in CO's last vote-by-mail election - one addressed to me with three names, one addressed to me with four names. Oh, and three more ballots addressed to previous tenants.

My bet is he leaves most of his fortune to charity. Based on interviews he's done, he seems to think people are better off earning things for themselves, rather than having somebody else hand it to them.

They are New York City liberals and consider anything that smacks of the culture war to be unsophisticated and thuggish. They do not like it.

Economists love to push the "rational market" notion, in the vain attempt to impute scientific credibility to economics - which most definitely is NOT a science - by justifying the use of calculus in economics (by pretending the market moves incrementally).

They ignore the massive impact on the market of group psychology, which vitiates any attempt to render economics as a science.

328 I used to read both NR and AoS daily (now just AoS), but NR's contributors became unreadable due to a near universal mis-reading of reality on their part, driven by TDS and probably CoC money and DC/NY thinking. Jay Nordlinger for example, who used to be a very entertaining writer, in every article jabbed at Trump and how dangerous he was. He totally bought in to the Russia collusion narrative. Plus he would pick on Orban, totally not getting that Western Civ is under massive threat and Orban is one of the few that recognize it and is trying to do something about it. If Nordlinger now understands reality, let me know and I'll go back.

336 I saw Buckley in person around 1990. Someone asked him what he thought about Rush Limbaugh. Buckley proceeded to tell a long tale about getting in a boat far away from everyone and whispering, "I like him."


Rush used to talk about being invited to Buckley's NYC Townhouse.

You know, NOT to take anything away from the Great El Rushbo, but for most of his career, Rush wanted IN with the elites. He used to regale his listeners with stories of watching NFL games in the owners box, golfing with big shots, getting invited to the Bush WH.

He soured on all of them toward the end, but the Rush of the '90's was no Trump Populist---not that Trump was one in the '90's either....

343 Lots of people sell and then pat themselves on the back after a crash comes. Problem is they forget to start buying again thinking the crash will be worse than it is. So whatever they make on the downside they lose on the upside and end up right back whether they started. Timing markets is a fool’s errand.
Posted by: Joe XiDen at June 16, 2022 03:41 PM (rl4NL)

Yep. The problem is that the upside tends to occur suddenly. It's not a gradual, monotonically increase; upsides tend to occur dramatically, and much like avalanches, are impossible to predict exactly when they will occur.

359 China’s state-run Global Times on Thursday warned the United States could “spark World War III” by pushing too hard to decouple from the Chinese minerals industry by developing its own supply.

After a little throat-clearing and harrumphing about how “it’s reasonable for any country to diversify its supply chains that involve critical resources,” the Global Times said China would consider it tantamount to an act of war if the U.S. diversifies too much because Beijing sees decoupling as preparation for “an all-out conflict” with America’s “strategic competitors” that could escalate into “World War III.”

364 And since we are talking stocks:
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm reportedly exercised $1.6 million in stock options with an electric vehicle technology firm as she and President Biden urge action on climate change while Americans face $5 per gallon on unleaded 87 octane.

Granholm reportedly sold her holdings in Burlingame, Calif.-based Proterra in 2021, but the UK Daily Mail reported she recently exercised $1.6 million in stock options from the company. The divestment reportedly came in the wake of Republican concerns from last year.

365 "Girls have started using the Not Like the Other Girls dating strategy, I hear. If a girl is really pushing her tomboy cred and talking about other girls sucking and boasting that she routinely no-scope headshots 90% of enemies in Call of Duty, she may be deploying the Not Like the Other Girls strategy."

I'm not sure this is a good comparison to what's been positied as the male equivalent. There are entire genres of romance writing built around the character that's "not like other girls". It's not so much a trojan horse (as in the male example) as it is a desperate desire to be able to be themselves without getting shit on for failing to conform. Mean girl peer pressure is far beyond what guys deal with.

403 How much did Google and Ebay give National Review? I bet it was a pittance.

Probably a few hundred thousand to destroy the brand forever. Hope it was worth it.

These tech oligarchs really did hollow out any sort of "respectable" conservative outlets. It's now just Twitter handles and various blogs to get any sort of decent opinion.

LOL, yeah that's the ticket! We'll give more power to the government bureaucrats who colluded with the drug companies, whose payrolls most of the bureaucrats are on (for drug patents) to lie to the public about an experimental DNA "vaccine" that's probably going to kill a whole lot of people.

The same government that green-lighted the drug companies to lie in their applications for approval of the experimental DNA vaccine. Lie about the adverse effects, lie about the effectiveness, lie about fetal deaths, lie about everything.

The same government bureaucrats who went on t.v. multiple times, in their white doctor coats, and told blatant, in-your-face lies like: "the vaccines are totally safe and effective," "the vaccines can't change your DNA because it can't enter the cell nucleus," "the vaccines won't harm pregnant women or their babies," etc.

Let's give the liars more power! That'll fix everything!

She sold them after the huge contract was awarded by her, so a huge capital gain. By the way, she avoided paying taxes on that gain, using a public officials clause. She sold, and moved it to a different investment with no capital gains tax.

450 Willowed from the Border Patrol post:

Crenshaw . . . had three primary challengers this go round. It was not close; he won with almost 75% of the vote. Simple truth is that he's very popular among Republicans. Not true of the HQ, but the HQ is not remotely representative of any sizeable voting bloc in the U.S., which is why the idea that we are going to primary our way to a more conservative GOP is laughable.

Crenshaw is probably taking a page from the McCain 'Maverick' playbook

Anytime he had a credible thread from the right in a primary, Mave would recruit some other state senator or rep. to run to the right of his opponent to split the conservative vote, allowing mave to get the cushy moderate votes for an easy primary win..

He worked it in the 08 primary also with Fred Thompson jumping in at the last moment to run and split up some of the conservative votes from the other candidates.

-Minstrel shows are the overt mocking of the characteristics of the black race by the white race, and are horrible things that any vestige of should get the perpetrator banned from society.

-Drag queen shows are the overt mocking of the characteristics of straight females by gay males, and are just the grooviest thing, man! You're a total hater if you don't want them EVERYWHERE, and we mean EVERYWHERE!

I guess it just shows who's currently on the top of the human bean jar, but why is Karen going along with it?

461 Just to add my 1 cent to the thread topic...

I grew up in a small midwestern town, almost Mayberry-ish. In the '70's we had four channels, ABC, NBC, CBS and PBS. I remember seeing Firing Line on PBS, (I think), and finding myself immediately turned off by the smarmy, East Coast snotty, voice of William F. Buckley. I didn't know anyone who talked like that, and I didn't want to.

Years later, I checked in to NR, and even later NRO. Okay, they spouted conservatism, but over time, I would hear comments that gave evidence that they lived in a different world than most people, and that they were self appointed "Thought Leaders." People who were and very obviously are now completely unmoored from the real world that most people live in.
