Daily Wire Founder Believes Conservatism is About Preserving American Liberalism

Published

on

On October 30, 2019, Jeremy Boreing, the founder of the Daily Wire, argued that “what American conservatives want to conserve is American liberalism. American conservatism is not European conservatism.”

Boreing’s comments come in the wake of nationalists asking pressing questions during the Q&A portions of Turning Point’s “Culture War Live”, which put the conservative organization against the wall on issues concerning immigration and social morality.

Boreing was having none of that.  He tweeted, “What these retrograde losers don’t understand is that what American conservatives want to conserve is American liberalism. American conservatism is not European conservatism.”

The Daily Wire founder was instantly taken to task by conservative commentators such as Vincent James of the Red Elephants and Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars.

James pointed out that conservatism focuses more on ordered liberty, principles which the late Russell Kirk promoted. These entail the respect for family values, community, and established traditions that provide the necessary social glue for a functioning society.

Watson noted that conservatives are not doing their best in fighting the “culture war.”

He asserted that “Modern conservatives claim to be fighting a “culture war” yet have ceded ground on every single battle to the point where their position resembles what liberals believed less than ten years ago.”

The conservative journalist then calls to attention how “Progressives are dragging the Overton Window to the fringes of the left and modern conservatives are dutifully tracking behind.”

Watson then concludes by asking, “Where is their line in the sand? In 10 years, will so-called conservatives be embracing Drag Queen Story Time and forced medication of 7-year-old transgender kids?”

Political correctness is part and parcel of American politics and many countries in the West. The Left is the obvious instigator of this trend, but many feckless figures on the Right have perpetuated it.

Many members of the Dissident Right are raising awareness about how ineffective most mainstream conservatives have become in defending their ideas and also the national characteristics of Western countries.

What should be seen as a form of constructive criticism, these critiques from the Dissident Right are taken by many to be reactionary “trolling” or “racist” hand-wringing. These are uncomfortable truths that many conservatives are not willing to address.

Failure to do so, will likely result in their ultimate defeat in the coming decades.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
