God Save Us from #Woke Fake Conservatives | Main | America's First Documented Hatcrime
January 22, 2019

By the Way...

You know who brought it to the alleged "conservative" Rich Lowry's attention that the Covington video was #FakeNews?

It was the proudly left-wing YouTuber Tim Pool.

I've linked Tim Pool a lot. He's left-of-center, but he is full of basic common sense and a spirit of fair play and against race/gender "identitarianism" on both the right and left.

Half the stories I put up I get from Tim Pool.

Well not half. But a lot. Three or four a week.

I watch almost all of his videos, except on the days when he shits out seven of them. Too many!

Anyway, here's the point:

It took a leftwing guy (though a fair-minded and sensible one) to actually watch the videos and tell the alleged right-wing guy Rich Lowry that he was pushing a false story and unfairly condemning innocent children who had done literally nothing wrong.

So that's where we are: The people we donate money to advocate for us can't throw us under the bus fast enough, and don't even bother to watch the evidence they're basing their rush-to-judgment on, and a leftwing guy, who you don't pay at all (though you can, of course, donate to his Patreon or whatnot) has to correct him and present the evidence that the "rightwing" guy is crucifying conservative kids for no reason except that he felt pressure from Jezebel to do so.

I'm sorry, I need this explained to me:

What do we need National Review for, then?

If a leftwing guy (eh, kinda leftwing -- moderate on policy issues, but he knows the hard left's playbook) needs to explain to our "rightwing advocates" that they should look at the evidence before convicting children of hate crimes, do we need a rightwing media any more?

Maybe people should cancel whatever donations they were planning to make to National Review and donate it to advocates who actually get things done and influence people, like Tim Pool and says-he's-a-classic-British-liberal-but-sounds-like-an-American-conservative Sargon of Akkad.

Or maybe donate to American Greatness. Or to the American Mind. Or to The Federalist -- so when FusionGPS' paid ops shit out the twitter hashtag #WhoFundsTheFederalist?, you can say, "I fund them, motherfucker."

Or donate to this here blog.

Should we continue funding failure? What do we expect will come out of our continuing investment in failure?

We asked them to take our concerns to the establishment, to act as our tribunes to the actual decision-makers, so that our concerns would be addressed.

They mostly refused, and mostly delivered the establishment's concerns to us.

We asked them to take our side against the media's constant attacks.

They mostly refused. People like David French have a nice little cottage industry going of calling conservatives racists in The Atlantic.

We asked them to score a political victory for us once in a while.

They completely failed. This may be our fault, for wrongly assuming they had any efficacy or influence to begin with.

Now we're down to the very most minimal request: Please don't scalp-hunt our children just because Jezebel and the HuffPo are doing it and you don't want to feel like a left-out Nazi.

That's what we're down to. That's how low we've lowered the bar. We're no longer asking them to do anything positive for us.

We're just down to begging them not to attack our children because our children are Suspiciously White and Male.

Based on Frankovich's non-apology, and The Editors' determination to keep minimizing their role in this lynch mob and blaming the media (but not themselves!) for pushing a false story that put innocent kids' lives in danger and families in fear -- I'm not sure what their answer is here.

They have not made any commitments, for example, to forbid their NeverTrump-deranged writers from joining in any viral video/outrage mob in the first 48 hours.

They've made no commitments at all. Like the leftist media itself, their apology is tepid, and they refuse to make any tangible promises about changes they will make to prevent this from happening again.

So I guess we'll just have to... trust them.

Like we trust the regular leftwing media.

Personally, I don't read National Review any more, and have not in literal years. The only time I see it is on the rare occasion someone tells me that Andrew McCarthy has written something worth reading (something that isn't his customary defend-his-former-colleagues-at-all-costs reflex).

That, and when I'm alerted that Jonah Goldberg is plagiarizing me again.

I'm not even aware of National Review any longer. They're... they're just so far out of the arena they have no effect on the game at all. (Except when they want to add credibility to a leftwing lynching operation.)

They don't get shit done. They don't influence anyone.

And they don't have conservatives' backs.

Tim Pool is not a conservative, but he does know that the hard left -- the "identitarian left," the antifa left-- plays dirty and he does not like it.

Tim Pool is worth fifteen cucks from National Review -- and he's actually a left-winger to boot!

That says something.

That says a lot.

If a one-man operation, consisting of one left-of-center commentator, is a better defender of innocently slandered conservative boys and a better critic of leftwing panic-mobs than our alleged right-wing institutions:

What is the point of having these institutions?

As a Bob asked in Office Space:

"What is it you'd say you do here?"

Maybe it's time to do some trimming of the deadweight. Maybe it's time to start funding other people who do not have a proven track record of complete failure and fecklessness, and who actually have an impulse to fight the left's brutalizations of conservative voters instead of saying, "Hey, if we surrendered some more, it might confuse them!"

What cannot be reformed must be destroyed.


Expect more snark from AllahPundit and the other preening cucks about how Trump should stay out of this and leave the kids' defense to the Adults in the Room who can really protect them, like National Review, Bill Kristol, Ana Navaro, Seth "The Beefcake Avenger" Mandel, etc....
