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.

As the number of Americans filing for unemployment approaches 40 million, America’s billionaires are cruising along without any worries.

According to a CNBC report, billionaire fortunes climbed by a total of $434 billion since the middle of March,

At the top of the list are Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg, whose respective fortunes increased by $34.6 and $25 billion, according to the Americans for Tax Fairness and the Institute for Policy Studies’ Program for Inequality. Zerohedge noted that both organizations came to this conclusion “based on Forbes data for America’s over 600 billionaires collected between March 18 and May 19.”

Tyler Durden highlighted the following stats:

Percentage-wise, Elon Musk’s wealth grew 48% to $36 billion, while Zuckerberg clocked in at 46%. Bezos’ wealth grew 31% to $147 billion. His ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, saw her wealth increase by roughly 33% to $48 billion. On average, American billionaires saw their net worth grow 15% during the two-month period from $2.948 trillion to $3.382 trillion.

Bezos, Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Buffett and Larry Ellison saw their wealth increase by a total of $76 billion.

“The surge in billionaire wealth during a global pandemic underscores the grotesque nature of unequal sacrifice,” declared Chuck Collins, director of the IPS Program on Inequality and co-author of the Billionaire Bonanza 2020 report. “While millions risk their lives and livelihoods as first responders and front line workers, these billionaires benefit from an economy and tax system that is wired to funnel wealth to the top.”

However, some billionaires haven’t benefited so much:

Still, the pandemic hasn’t been kind to other billionaires – whose yacht upgrades may need to wait. Those in travel and retail have taken a beating. Ralph Lauren saw his wealth drop by $100 million to $5.6 billion, while hotelier John Pritzker has seen a $34 million drop to $2.56 billion. We know, time to get a collection going.

 As Americans experience economic uncertainty, certain business giants are clearly benefiting.The country needs to re-open in a timely manner.Failure to do so will widen this economic gulf and catalyze social unrest.
