Irony is not for the Superficial

Irony is not allowed in respectable conservatives.

To be respectable conservative your discussion must be long, verbose, preferably with a few big words thrown in and lots of references to some Critociticologenous in the fourteenth century, whose real name was probably Smith.

When you can’t impress people with your thinking, you can cow ‘em with your Greek.

I was looking at the White Genocide project and I noticed one of this type there, declaring that the really important thing was to use a term like Euro instead of white people. He said that anything else would have a “Made in America” look. As a comment, it would been OK, but he went on and on about it, how he knew how to influence European thought and this was the wrong way.

I can’t see any sign of him influencing European thought. I also note that the reason every European country has adopted the term “multicultural” is because it was Made in America.

Every country in Europe thought it had a culture of its own, but the minute New York and San Francisco took over they all, every single one of them, set up whole multicultural programs.

There is a piece somewhere on the net called “debunking Bob Whitaker.” The words flow, but there is no meaning in them.

This is another example of one of my favorite expressions of irony:

“It sounds obscure but it is actually meaningless..”

It’s the old bit that terrifies respectable conservatives when one of the liberals they worship threatens to say it: “You just don’t agree with me because you don’t Understand.”

Buckley was the ideal conservative because he trailed along behind Galbraith who was a REAL WASP professor at Harvard, with no stain of Catholicism or Southernness about him, and he was willing to be seen in public with Bill.

When a lot of people pointed out that Buckley’s New Love, the neoconservatives, were just rats deserting a sinking ship, the replied, “Well, why shouldn’t rats desert a sinking ship?”

It is not surprising that those rats took over National review at the end of Buckley’s career.

One of my best friends at National Review, Bill Rusher, wrote a history of the conservative movement right after Reagan’s election. He showed it was by getting the Wallace vote that the Reagan majority was formed.

But he spent half the book praising and thanking and doing kow-tows to neoconservatives for the Ivy Leaguers and New Yorkers who had left the sinking liberal ship and condescended to switch to be against liberals. He admitted they had nothing to do with the Reagan victory, “But…” he said, and went on and on about how glorious and wonderful they are to speak with such as he the way a peasant would go on if the King visited his village.

People on that level of superficiality would never understand irony.

People on that level of superficiality are AFRAID of irony.
