Has the Republicans’ Capitulation on Homosexualization of the Military Guaranteed the Democrats’ Victory in 2012?

By Nicholas Stix

Is the GOP in the hands of Democratic saboteurs?

Its surrender on homosexualization of the military was so abject that it made the French Army in 1940 look like 300 Spartans, and squandered the advantage that “Obama’s” malevolent leadership had given it.

Two months ago, I predicted that if “Obama” can’t steal the 2012 election, that he declare a state of emergency, and cancel it. But if the GOP continues on its present course, he will be able to confidently contest and win the election, because much of the Republican base will stay away, as it did in 2008.

The Party put up no fight on this issue—neither on the official level, nor via its opinion columnists—which is huge in its own right, as well as being tied closely to the issue of same-sex marriage. Someone who will surrender on the queering of the military, is almost certain to also surrender to the homosexual destruction of marriage. The homosexual talking points in both cases are the identical, “civil rights” tripe.

The GOP’s biggest constituency is Evangelical Christians who, though they are not at all as conservative as the MSM paints them, e.g., they are soft on immigration and race, will not yield on homosexuality. If GOP leaders are seeking to run Evangelicals out of the Party, as neocon country club Republicans Bill Kristol and David Brooks dreamed of doing at least as far back as 2000, when they began promoting John McCain as party standard-bearer, they are doing a great job of it.

Back in 2000, my old Toogood Reports colleague, Jim Antle, said that following Kristol and Brooks’ advice would guarantee the GOP a future as a permanent minority party.

[Kristol's and Brooks’] political strategy in essence was this: Jettison the boorish white Southerners -- a Weekly Standard bete noire held responsible for much of the GOP's troubles within its pages -- and their Christian right friends, as well as other elements of the Republican coalition easily caricatured by the Democrats. Replace them with a party that chablis-sipping sophisticates from the Northeast who dress like Tucker Carlson would be more comfortable with. Sprinkle generous amounts of happy talk about reform. Voila! A new majority is born....

What is to be gained by reading the GOP's backbone constituencies out of the party in exchange for better coverage from the New York Times? It ought to be said that when the party looked more like what Kristol and Brooks envision, it was consigned to permanent minority status.

Most of all, this formulation is utterly devoid of moral and intellectual substance....

“Bill Kristol goes party-building,” by W. James Antle III, Enter Stage Right, March 13, 2000.

Far from gaining it softer coverage, in recent years the GOP leadership’s betrayal of their base has resulted in ever more vitriolic denunciations from the Times. If you don’t respect yourself, don’t expect anyone else to respect you.

Given the Party’s demographic decline since 2000 via the nation’s ongoing immigration disaster, I believe that alienating the Evangelicals would result in the Republican Party ceasing to exist as a national party, at some time in the next 10 years.

Note that eight years after he began promoting McCain as presidential timber, when the Senator finally got the nomination, Brooks, by then working as a columnist for communist New York Times publisher Arthur “Pinch” Sulzberger Jr., stabbed McCain in the back, denouncing the running mate McCain had chosen, Sarah Palin, as "represent[ing] a fatal cancer to the Republican Party," and soon after the election, made his new loyalty to the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama” official.

Although McCain’s naming of Palin gave him a big surge in popularity, Palin is a populist, and Brooks hates populism. Which is to say that Brooks hates the Republican base. Those are Palin’s people.

And since McCain’s pursuit of Brooks’ very notions of electoral strategy—fighting with both hands tied behind his back—was dooming him to defeat, and Brooks is, above all, a political courtier, it was time to abandon ship.

But in blaming Gov. Palin for Sen. McCain’s looming defeat, Brooks was reversing responsibility, as if politicians with the common touch were the biggest threat to GOP victory. That would have been news to George W. Bush.

So much for Brooks’ desire to help the Republican Party.

In the case of McCain, whose career had consisted of stabbing his party and his voters in the back, Brooks’ betrayal was poetic justice, but that didn’t help the country.

More recently, in bending over for gay activists, the GOP’s “leaders” acted as if they were taking orders from Brooks, and seeking to curry favor with the latter’s New York Times’ colleague, Frank Rich, whose racist hatred of the Republican Party’s white base is no less rabid than that of Tim Wise, even if Rich doesn’t express himself quite as crudely as Wise.

What I wrote back in 2005, in opposition to Brooks’ argument on behalf of Giuliani as presidential nominee—that a “responsibility” politician without convictions might go any way the wind blows—turned out to describe Brooks—and, unfortunately, GOP leaders, as well—to a tee.

A political party that capitulates to it enemies, and brazenly betrays its most loyal supporters, while supporting its own demographic destruction, is not a party with a future. Either the GOP does a flip-flop on homosexualization, or an Evangelical gets the Party’s presidential nomination in 2012, or the Republican Party is finished as a national force promoting the interests of right-of-center white voters, and exists only as a form of organized political mischief, sabotage, and rent-seeking.

The Republicans and Conservatives capitulation on race, particularly the immigration aspect of the issue, guarantees the Left's victory (not to mention the destruction of the civilization). They're a bunch of crooks who only want access to the system to pursue some pet project or money making scheme. To use the appropriate Mafia vernacular they're busting out the country, they don't care about its long term prospects. Writing out Evangelicals? Sure why not, they've written out just about every constituent group in their coalition except the ones who have no interest in voting for them anyway (like blacks and browns). I mean, this is the Party that whose leader a few years ago called the majority of it members Nazis, in effect, for wanting even a small amount of immigration control. That episode was typical of Republican leadership. It clearly showed they have no connections with the vast majority of their voters, no idea of their desires, and indeed no cares about those desires, they're only in it for the money and can't understand any other motivation. Their first instinct is to side with the dominant Liberal elite because that is the most direct way to access the system and get to the money. They were stunned by the furious reaction of their voters.

It would be better for the nation if the Republican Party literally ceased to exist, if Republicans who makes less than 200k a year quit the Party and re-registered as Democrats. Then there would be at least have SOME Conservative say in how we are governed. What would likely happen if this miracle ever actually came to pass is that the SDS typed who now control the Democrats would break off and form an opposition party whose extremism would guarantee that they would be ineffectual for decades. Right now the Republican leadership performs that function for Conservatism even when they win at the polls.

Christian here and dislike Palin and Beck (too liberal for me). I'm a racial conservative while being a social conservative too (fully traditional conservative). The only difference is that I'm ex-evangelical (don't ask) and a conservative theological Catholic. I think the GOP is full of crooks and the leaders are either capitalists, neoconservatives or libertarians.
