America's Lurch to the Lunatic Left Worries... the French

But, but, but -- what about the moderate centrism promised to me by NeverTrump?

They told me we would pass gracefully into a less radical, more gentile age if we just rejected the Bad Orange Man.

But it seems like... NeverTrump was lying to us. Or else NeverTrump got the single most fundamental question of our age completely wrong: whether or not the left was now so radical and so evil-intentioned that anyone not part of the antifa coalition must unite to stop it.

Instead, NeverTrump told us to join the antifa cult -- temporarily, mind you.

Now even France -- which has a real Communist Party that really gets votes, and which permits Communists to shut down the country with strikes and kidnap the bosses at factories every few months -- is worried by the US' headlong rush into becoming another communist failed state.

America has moved to the left so rapidly that Europeans are now expressing alarm about it. As journalist Glenn Greenwald notes, "Obama-endorsed French President Emmanuel Macron has joined numerous French intellectuals & journalists in warning that "out-of-control woke leftism of US campuses and its attendant cancel culture' poses a grave threat due to the social strife it creates."

Greenwald links to a New York Times article that asks, "Will American ideas tear France apart? Some think so. Politicians and prominent intellectuals say" that left-wing "social theories from the United States on race, gender, and post-colonialism are a threat" to French unity and stability:

French politicians, high-profile intellectuals and journalists are warning that progressive American ideas -- specifically on race, gender, post-colonialism -- are undermining their society. "There's a battle to wage against an intellectual matrix from American universities,’" warned Mr. Macron's education minister.

Emboldened by these comments, prominent intellectuals have banded together against what they regard as contamination by the out-of-control woke leftism of American campuses and its attendant cancel culture…..

But NeverTrump's still enjoying Biden's "Nice Tweets" though, right?

I've said this before, but the French still respect political discourse. They have "controversial" authors like Eric Zemmour who writes of the danger posed to the West by militant Islam. Now, that guy is "controversial," but he still appears on French panel discussion shows and is treated as a, you know, intellectual worth hearing from and debating.

I know it's hard to accept this but America is actually one of the most unfree nations in the West, now.

And they could only do this with the assistance and permission of the conservative movement's "Defeat Mechanism," the liberal northeastern former Bushie non-conservative corporate class.

The pseudoright has created this situation. They are determined to be the "Only Permissible Right," and they routinely join #Cancel campaigns from the left to cancel their right-wing competitors.

Ben Shapiro defines himself as the most "extreme" rightwinger permissible. He's as much of an Edgyboy as he will permit. If you attempt to be 1% more edgy than "Edgyboy" Ben Shapiro, he'll declare you "alt-right" and start a deplatforming campaign.

They're all like this. National Review cannot accept the reality that they are very, very liberal "Republicans" (if they're still even that). National Review believes, again, that they are the most maximally conservative writers permissible, and if you're slightly more zealous about your conservatism than they are, you are an alt-right Nazi and they will gladly join with the left to cancel you.

I keep saying this, but the only "conservative" point they're absolutist about is the absolute Corporate Infallibility of their financial backers.

Our biggest enemy is the pseudoright. We can never beat the left until we destroy them.

This is why I am so determined to purge them: Because they will never, ever, ever stop trying to purge us.

They are despicable, they are the eager junior partners of the totalitarian left, they are rentboys in service to their billionaire masters, and we must fight them with every bit as much zeal as ruthlessness that we would fight anyone who intends to enslave us.

Because they do intend to enslave us. They have a very firm notion of what the Natural Order of Humankind is meant to be, and it goes Left on Top, Pseudoright on the second tier, and all of us underfoot.
