What Is Conservatism?

As a nationalist and populist voter, the only point on which I overlap with mainstream conservatism is social conservatism. It is the only leg of the traditional three legged “conservative stool” of Fusionism that I agree with. I’ve always hated neoliberal economics. Ever since the Iraq War, I have always strongly disliked the globalist neocon foreign policy.

I can’t wrap my mind around how we came to the place where it has become highly taboo to identify as a cisgendered heterosexual White Christian male in mainstream conservatism, but open homosexuals, Iranian immigrants, race-mixers, atheists, Jews and proud feminist libertarians have become thought leaders and gatekeepers and given platforms of this thing called “conservatism.” We’re told that even drag queens are welcome within the fold now.

This is why I reject the term “conservatism.” I have nothing really against the concept as I understand it (real conservatism is a visceral and organic defense of authority and social hierarchy rather than a fake and astroturfed ideology), but in the United States the term “conservative” means “classical liberal.” The ideology of the mainstream Right is conservative liberalism. The goal is to conserve classical liberalism as the foundation of the social order. The result of this mindset is that we get more tax cuts, deregulation, Zionism and cultural degeneracy.

It seems to me like in the Trump era that social conservatism has been completely abandoned by the mainstream Right. I am old enough to remember when George W. Bush ran for reelection on the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2004. Now, we have strippers and homosexuals telling us that “we have no place in the conservative movement,” which is fine by me.

I don’t see anything of value in the conservative movement least of all anything that is actually “conservative.” It is a joke that these people expect to be taken seriously. The only people who were ever worth listening to in conservatism have all been purged or have barely survived and now it is represented by a herd of grifters like Mindy Robinson and Rob Smith.

Note: The firing of Ashley St. Clair aka Sexlaptop by Turning Point USA in September was the spark that lit the Groyper War. In hindsight, that incident really crystallizes the whole debate about the nature of conservatism. They didn’t care when she was being destroyed by Tyrone. She only became a problem when she was seen in the same room with Fuentes.

  1. Its been a long time since White men have been thinking..together. I like what TPUSA has done, and is doing, to reignite our collective mental and spiritual infernos..everything they are doing is going so hard against our way of life that more soldiers are made with every tweet they put out.

  2. Conservatism, Inc. is in self destruct mode. When it collapses it will need another bogus replacement. That’s where Fuentes and his ilk come in. He’ll disavow pro-Whites and “anti-Semites” so fast it’ll make your head spin. He already has done so indirectly.

  3. You are correct HW.
    Conservatives have conserved nothing.

    So, where does that leave us? I’m of the opinion that our options will progressively (no pun intended) decline until we have only one option left. That view leads me to the conclusion that the time we have left must be used wisely as our foes are getting stronger (see ChicFil-A capitulation to Big Gay) and our numbers are not swelling.

    Instead of focusing on the takeover of the former USA by the militant Left, we should focus on what comes after the takeover is complete. (2024 or 2028 at the latest)

    When the Left regains power in the next decade, the Reconstruction 2.0 of the former USA will begin in earnest.

    • The Left will have its day in the sun next decade but they will find they have inherited a shell. Conservatism, Inc., the parasite of the Left has conserved its crumbs from the table while the usual suspects ran away with the silver. Again. The country will be ungovernable, the Left will fail spectacularly and the grifters like the Republicans will melt away like snow on a warm, Spring day.

  4. Hitler had no use for conservatives and neither did Rockwell. Conservatives are nothing but cowards, fools and reactionaries.

  5. Hey Hunter,
    As you know, my idea of *conservative* has something to do with R.L. Dabney and George Fitzhugh. In their day a “big black nigga named Tyrone” would have been in their fields, not in their daughter’s sexual fantasies.

    • Joe Putnam,

      Big black nigga named kunta kinte should have been hidiufrom packs of hyenas, lions, and other top tier predators in the Sarengeti plateau and not working the fields for Dabney or Fitzhugh.

      Dabney’s and Fitzhugh’s extended families and heirs should have been working their own damn fields. When will you nostalgic southern slavers understand that bring the negroes here was a terrible mistake that we pay for 24/7/365.

    I can understand it. It’s just an extension of 90’s Rush Limbaugh’s “Democrats are the real racists” and anti-Buchananism. Boomers were already doing stuff like this in the 90’s with cucky evangelicals like the Promise Keepers talking about “racial reconciliation” and by Jack Kemp style conservatism. Much like now you had people like Limbaugh back then serving as gatekeepers and trying to steer disgruntled boomers away from the alt-right.

  7. I don’t identify as a conservative (or a liberal), but even I am shocked at what passes for Conservatism today. No cultural ideas that were considered conservative in the past have been conserved! The only policies that “conservatives” still fight for are related to economics and the military . They are only concerned about their money, investments, deregulation, low taxes, and wars for Israel. Many of them point out that they would rather live in a neighborhood filled with nonwhites as long as they are hardworking. Conservatives couldn’t even be bothered safeguarding the race that has always voted for their conservative policies!

    Mindy Robinson?? A long time ago normal people would have called her a less than respectable woman. Now she is called a Conservative???
