Delenda est National Review! “Never Trump” Will be Its Epitaph

Excerpted by Nicholas Stix

The Right Stuff

“This must be the fate of the late Willian F. Buckley’s crowning achievement, the National Review (NR). It must be destroyed without impunity for its habitual transgressions, perpetual failures and the fiends that have infected it. It’s time has come. As the symbol of the Old Right’s impotence and incompetence at halting the Left’s conquest of our nation and its heritage, National Review must be purged out of existence. It must have no voice nor provide guidance. Their adoption of the Fabian strategy has allowed the Left to hollow them; they are brittle and will break easily. Their futile “Never Trump” will be their epitaph.

“Their sins are many, especially, when one considers how many victims they purged and/or ruined. These victims, a collection of some of the Right’s best intellectual individuals and steadfast organizations, believed (still do) in full measures and identified the communist Left’s strategy: be it immigration, race relations or general decay in our moral values. And they weren’t just purged from the pages of National Review, Buckley and his current successor, the effeminate Rich Lowery, have (sometimes successfully) tried to totally erase them from the Right. Not “erase” in the Latin American dictatorship sense, but completely discredit and banish them.

“Look at Ann Coulter, for instance. After 9/11, Ann wrote, “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.” At the time, this seemed fairly reasonable for the rank and file of the Right, but in hindsight, I would have preferred turning the Middle East into a sea of glass. Regardless, she was fired a month later, in October 2001--with (((Jonah Goldberg))) writing a catty justification for the firing. Interestingly enough, the neoconservatives did the first two, invading and killing, but skimped out on the last one--converting the kebab to Christianity--I wonder why?

As cucks are wont to do, National Review folded to the demands of the White-hating Left and fired John Derbyshire for his “offensive,” but clearly accurate and sensible, take on race relations. Submitting to the Left is actually a national pastime for the National Review.

Today at NRO, one of the leading cucks calls for Mitt Romney to run for president as an independent.

In this most unpredictable (and predictable)election year,we now have a potential
debate,happening prior to the mostly unimportant California primary on June 7th,between Sanders and Trump.It's hilarious to think of it as a roast of Hillary Clinton.Can Rickles come out for a few one liners?Jeffrey Ross?Will Kate McKinnon(as a faux Clinton)sit in a chair between the REAL debaters? WIll this be on Comedy Central?
It's got to be in Trumps mind,a benefit for Trump.Otherwise,he wouldn't participate...or he's bored and feels he needs to keep the spotlight and momentum going before the convention.Don't let ennui set in.Don't let too many calendar days go by without having something productive happen for the campaign.
Stay aggressive.Keep slamming Hillary...and if you can get her Democratic party opponent to join in the fun WITH YOU in front of a large audience,so much the better.
Of course Larry David and Darrell Hammond's version will have to wait until SNLs new season.
