We live with the legacy of the bigoted structures racists created. Our obligation to seek justice does not depend on our personal fault. And there is nothing “conservative” about denying the consequences of centuries of racist harm. My Sunday essay: https://t.co/ITSV1BPrs4— David French (@DavidAFrench) July 25, 2021
The Conservative Case for Placing Your Testicles in a Small Jar and Gifting Them to People Who Hate You https://t.co/TYXBx8c0B9— Pedro L. Gonzalez (@emeriticus) July 25, 2021
Shorter version of David French: every leftwing fad is “a blessing of liberty” and fully constitutional and is compatible with conservatism and Christianity and you are an immoral, racist, reactionary, deplorable “far right,” authoritarian populist and nationalist for opposing it. In fact, you are beyond the pale of respectability and ought to have “no place” in the conservative movement.
“Let’s apply this more concretely, to the United States of America. Enforcing the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause and passing the Civil Rights Act was (and is) necessary to end overt, legal discrimination, but it was hardly sufficient to ameliorate the effects of slavery and Jim Crow. These effects are so embedded in our system that powerful people often perpetuate those structures even when they lack any racist intent at all.
To illustrate this reality, I’ll turn to perhaps the most commonly cited example (because it’s so significant) of how racism can be truly “structural” or “systemic” and thus linger for years even when the surrounding society over time loses much of its malign intent. …”
David French inspired the cuckservative meme.
You can almost always predict what he will say before the words come out his turkey neck. The reason that we spend so much time on David French who is one of our favorite punching bags is because he personifies the weak, effeminate, feckless and corrupt conservative intelligentsia.
In recent years, it seems like he has embraced the stereotype and narrative as his own identity. Glancing through the archives, I see he has written the conservative case against anti-CRT laws, the conservative case for Liz Cheney, the conservative case for impeaching Trump, the conservative case for Drag Queen Story Hour, the conservative case against withdrawing from Afghanistan, the conservative case against the Alt-Right mind virus infecting America, the conservative case against the Republican Daddy State, the conservative case for preferring Third World immigrants to Europeans, the conservative case for interracial adoption, the conservative case for censorship, the conservative case for Big Tech, the conservative case for the conservative intelligentsia, the conservative case against the “Tough Guy Right,” the conservative case against gun fetishists, the conservative case against toxic masculinity, the conservative case against White Nationalism, the conservative case for Sen. Doug Jones, the conservative case for Hillary Clinton and the conservative case for Big Tech’s free speech rights. David French has been branded as a loser and transformed into a meme.
Note: As recently as the summer of 2019, Frenchism will still considered viable. There were people who entertained the notion that David French was a serious conservative intellectual and writer.
