I can confirm that Shapiro isn’t one of ours:
“The Economist created a furor on social media when it mischaracterized conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro as part of the “alt-right” in a story published Thursday.
The article, which features a question-answer discussing his political views and his new book, The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great , initially featured the headline “Inside the mind of Ben Shapiro, the alt-right sage without the rage.”
As soon as the story hit the web, its assertion that Shapiro was associated with the alt-right — a loose affiliation known for extremism, racism, and hate — drew ire over Twitter, ultimately leading to The Economist apologizing and changing the headline. …”
We’re a “fringe movement” because there is currently no money in loving your own people and honoring your ancestors. You’re not allowed to do that in “mainstream conservatism.” That’s why we are so excited about the possibility of Chairman Yang changing that dynamic.
He knows little about Western civilization, but gets to talk about it on television to Boomers.
He’s Jewish, for one … the rules of political correctness don’t apply to him. He can be an ethnocentric Jewish Zionist who calls for ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians and it is fine. That’s perfectly acceptable in “mainstream” politics.
He’s a neocon warmonger who supported the invasion of Iraq. We are people who put Humanity First and have always opposed these destructive military interventions.
He’s also a conservative which means he inclines toward classical liberalism (except for his fellow Jews in Israel). In that sense, he is like the founders of The Economist. It is weird to see them being so cross with each other since they fundamentally agree on globalism.
“Radical conservative” is a more accurate headline. By definition, a mainstream conservative in the United States is someone who cares about no other people on earth except the Jews and Shapiro is a particularly ardent champion of the Jewish cause of annexing the Golan Heights.
I’m horrified by it.
I don’t have any seat in mainstream politics though. Shapiro is “mainstream.” I am “fringe.”
