Yoram Hazony Responds To The Tories

It’s true that the National Conservatism conference has been attacked by the Dissident Right as a lame attempt to rebrand mainstream conservatism.

Spectator:

“The claim that a conference whose organizers include Jews was in any way anti-Semitic is absurd. The conference committee included myself, an Orthodox Jew, and Ofir Haivry. Our Herzl Institute in Jerusalem was a co-sponsor, so Kawczynski and the other participants all spoke in front of an Israeli logo (among others) featuring a Star of David and Hebrew text.

The claim of homophobia is equally absurd. The conference was addressed by several well-known gay men. …

The claim that this was about racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia has no relation to reality. It is another attempt at PC cancel-culture intimidation.

Nor will we apologize for inviting controversial figures. The Edmund Burke Foundation has itself been bitterly attacked by white racialists and anti-Semites. Why? For excluding them and their views from our events. In Rome we pursued the same policies.”

The conference was organized by Yoram Hazony who is an Israeli who runs the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem. As he himself explains, Jews, homosexuals and mainstream conservatives are welcome at the National Conservatism conference and the nationalists who have been stigmatized as “racists” and “anti-Semites” by mainstream conservatism were banned. The whole thing swiftly devolved into accusations of anti-Semitism and one of the conservative speakers crumbled under the pressure and was forced by the Tories to apologize for attending.

In our view, this proves that National Conservatism is useless. It hasn’t had any practical application in the Trump administration. It is a LARP for conservatives. There is zero difference between mainstream conservatism and National Conservatism. Finally, it is ultimately about nothing but trying to create a Trojan Horse version of “nationalism” that is Made in Israel and can be sold to the masses and policed by conservative elites for anti-Semitism.

  1. Do you plan to review Christopher Calwell’s ” The Age of Entitlement”? His book calls the civil rights movement of the 1960’s the “second Reconstruction.”

  2. The great Revilo P. Oliver and Cmdr. Rockwell told us 60 years ago that conservatives were no damn good.

  3. “As he himself explains, Jews, homosexuals and mainstream conservatives are welcome at the National Conservatism conference and the nationalists who have been stigmatized as “racists” and “anti-Semites” by mainstream conservatism were banned.”

    Which means a prayer for the next one, that a natural event like a hurricane, tsunami, flood, earthquake, or stray nuclear bomb dropped dead center due to ‘tracking gone wild,’ would be a good thing…….

  4. A Jew nor a homo is going to allow themselves to be called a Christian. Conservative yes, but Christian never. It is too repulsive a moniker, for the Jew and the homo.. Why do they hate the innocent Christ the way they do and why oh why is Christ your one and only salvation, your one and only identity and your one and only reason for being? Gods will?
