On Conservative Rebels
“Conservative rebel” is a contradiction in terms. They’re right-wingers, they’re radical insurgents, they’re extremists; but conservative? Only in an Orwellian definition of the word. Such ‘conservatives’ are not interested in conserving anything; not blood, nor treasure, nor honor, nor security, nor liberty.
They lose wars, they preach rebellion, and they’re bad for business; that’s not conservative. For right-wing radicals to call themselves ‘conservative’ is a Big Lie. Let’s refuse to repeat it.
