Chris Buskirk runs the American Greatness website. Chris is a civic nationalist who believes in restoring the American project. But in his post, he sounds a lot like the folks in the dissident right:
“But the Bushes killed the Reagan legacy and rather than capitalizing on his victories abroad to achieve his goals at home, they instead embraced the social democratic impulse that replaces core human institutions like the family and the church with the government. This was the point at which institutional conservatism lost its way and slowly became a shadow of the progressive Left—following always just a few paces behind wherever it led.”
That line about “following always just a few paces behind wherever it led,” could have been in a post by Vox Day or the Z-Man. To my mind, the information that has been percolating around the dissident right has finally become completely mainstreamed. That is very good news. I tell some of my friends who get discouraged that knowing the truth about the Fake Right is more important news than anything else. The sucker punches we took from the Fake Right did more damage than the direct attacks from the Left. Uniting the people on the right will make us much stronger whereas having false friends among the rich and powerful is an enormous negative.
Onward and upward.
