The Wall Street Journal has finally found a “conservative” whom they are willing to give a platform.
Kevin D. Williamson recently made headlines when he was hired away from the all-but-dead National Review to write “conservative” opinions at the leftist rag The Atlantic. The notorious #NeverTrumper was hilariously fired just weeks later for writing a conservative opinion. Who could have seen that coming?
In response, he was given a platform in the The Wall Street Journal to complain about his experience. In an article titled “When the Twitter Mob Came For Me,” Williamson whined about the public backlash to the anti-abortion article that led to his firing.
The once-renowned Wall Street Journal seems to have found a conservative whom they can tolerate – one who has openly celebrated the death of the white working class.
In a bizarre piece written for the National Review in February, 2017, shortly after the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump, Williamson bashed those who care about the plight of the white working class in America as “non-conservative.” The article was called “America’s ‘White Working Class’ Needs to Move (On).”
“No conservative social critic ever blinked an eye or coughed up his cognac when the best advice from the right to the discontented and ambitious poor was to get out of the ghetto or the barrio, get an education, get a job, and start a new life and a new family in some more prosperous corner of the county or country,” he wrote. “But the dead and dying and white towns of Appalachia and the Rust Belt are another story. ‘Why should they have to go elsewhere?’ our freshly created populists demand.”
There are several complex answers to this question: Declining mobility since the 1980’s being one of them. Excessive mortgage debt (brought to us by the “true conservatives” in the Bush administration) is another.
But Williamson was bent on a bizarre attempt at white-knighting for the urban poor and lashing out at Trump’s message of reviving rural working-class communities in middle America. So far, Trump’s plan has worked, and the market has boomed accordingly, much to the disdain of “true conservatives” like Williamson.
The message was basically the same – the manufacturing jobs aren’t coming back, so bug off, hillbillies. As if lowering corporate tax rates to entice manufacturers to move back to America, which Trump has done, is somehow non-conservative.
“White people acting white have embraced the ethic of the white underclass, which is distinct from the white working class, which has the distinguishing feature of regular gainful employment,” he wrote. “The manners of the white underclass are Trump’s — vulgar, aggressive, boastful, selfish, promiscuous, consumerist.”
These elitist snobs have nothing but contempt for average people, and they wonder why they are universally hated, but the left and right alike. With “conservatives” like this, who needs liberals? Williamson does not understand the working-class, and has no business writing opinions on it. The working class does not sit around sipping cognac all day and theorizing, and are gladly accepting jobs that are becoming available to them thanks to the Trump administration.
As for Williamson’s white hate, firing from The Atlantic, and whining in The Wall Street Journal, maybe he should take his own advice and just move on.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
