Of all the political ideologies, one of the most frustrating would be neoconservatism. It’s not necessarily the worst ideology out there and it’s not as harmful or complex as communism, but it certainly is a massive problem. Now, in light of the downfall of the neocon Georgian, Casey Cagle, I feel it is a great time to cover this ideology and uncover its details.
“But, what is neoconservatism?” you ask.
Lets first break down the term. Neo – means new. “Conserve” means to keep something the way it is. That means that neocons are the “new conservatives.” Alright, but what was old conservatism?
Well, Old conservatism, or paleoconservatism, was more or less the view that most revolutionaries (1776 types), most Confederates and most World War I and II veterans had — I say most just because there had to have been a few that weren’t necessarily conservatives. It should be noted that paleoconservatism sometimes blends in very well with Alt-Right thinking, but I believe they are indeed different and distinct enough to be labelled as separate movements. They did not believe in a progressive multicultural melting pot. That vision for America never crossed their minds. They believed in conserving the unique American and Southern identities and people. They believed (knew) that just because someone is a citizen or resident, that does not make them an American or a Southerner.
Old conservatism was based on a few core beliefs. First and foremost, old conservatives put their people and nation (using the strictest sense of the word) first and before all else – think, America is not a proposition nation – it is a distinct people with their own unique culture and values. Neocons don’t believe that, they believe in the idea that all cultures and peoples are created equally and anyone can come to the United States and become an “American.” Old conservatives knew that was impossible and also untrue.
Old conservatives knew that some people were not as industrious as say, the Germans. A paleocon clearly understands that a German is not the same as a Somalian. Neocons hold that these differences do not exist whatsoever and if they do, than it’s all environmental and can be fixed with better parenting (or state intervention). Some old conservatives didn’t necessarily believe one group was superior, but they did believe we were all different, unique and that some combinations of groups spawn conflict.
Since old conservatives put their people first, they typically had a strong stance on immigration. People from compatible countries could come, sure, but people from incompatible countries or from countries which had already sent too many immigrants were not to be let in. Neocons are the opposite. Former failed president and perpetual neocon, George W. Bush, said of DACA recipients in February of this year, “America’s their home.” This is a standard talking point for neocon shilling.
The neocons claim anyone can come, so long as they fill out the correct paperwork. The immigrant need only become a citizen, no matter where he’s from or how many of his brethren live here, he is welcome — until he wipes out a gay bar in Orlando or kills someone while drinking and driving. To be fair, neocons prefer that these immigrants assimilate (at least pay lip service to the idea anyway), but when they don’t, the neocon dismisses it as something you can’t do anything about. When the immigrant community begins growing like a cancer, like the Mexicans have in the border states, old conservatives call for repatriation, so that the country doesn’t end up with a rebellion, loss of territory or social decay. Neocons would do no such thing, saying it’s immoral to rip people out of their homes, even if those people are hostile and detrimental to the country.
Another position old conservatives held is that Christianity is the religion America should adhere to and protect. Old conservatives were almost all Christian. Most neocons, however, are either Jewish, weak-kneed Christians or claim that all religions deserve a spot in the melting pot of Weimerica. Even neocon Christians believe this, but usually they aren’t real Christians at all. Neocons cite the first amendment as evidence that all religions must be protected and somehow believe that means that we can’t refuse migrants from other countries on account of religion. This is again, a silly stance and shows exactly where the neocon mindset is coming from. It comes from a watered down version of the leftist attitude which draws its entire worldview from emotions, not logic.
Neocons love their tokens – it gives them butterflies to know that a few migrants love them and America — as if the majority don’t hate them and America with every fiber in their body. This plays well into their open-borders agenda. Illegal immigration is a drop in the bucket when compared to legal immigration, but neocons only want things done in an orderly fashion, not a fashion that matters.
One of the most damaging facets of neoconservatism is their interventionist positions. Neocons and many Democrat politicians hold hands when it comes to this. They love foreign wars. Whether it’s the Iraq Invasion in 2003 or intervention in Syria, neocons support it wholeheartedly. They support sending young American men into the meat grinder for a little show of force. When the Syrian chemical bombings happened in Trump’s first few years in office, the media immediately blamed Assad with no evidence and the neocons were good little pawns and followed along. Clueless it seems, or perhaps their intentions are/were nefarious. They love tearing up other countries and making a mess, all without conscience. Neocons are often globalist, which explains this aspect of their ideology – invade the world, invite the world.
The final aspect of neoconservatism is an incredibly inflated adherence to the “economy.” This is the only place that neocons and paleocons meet, as they are, generally speaking, capitalists. Neither group wants a large welfare state — though some neocons do want one — and they both agree that low taxes are important for businesses to function and be able to employ people. However, neocons however will talk your ear off about the economy, as if it’s all that matters. They go on and on about how America’s economy has never been better and how America has never been better because of that. That last part is woefully wrong. Despite the social changes, decline of family, religion, and the seeming death of morality, neocons still hold the position that the economy is the most important thing.
In contrast, old conservatives see that it is important, but far from the most important topic. “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26). Paleoconservatives know that America is in the worst position its ever been, as we now have abortion on demand, out-of-wedlock births, abysmal divorce rates and lamentable rates of marriage and abstinence. What have we gained, while trading away our society’s morality? A little money? A little more fun? Some more diverse restaurants? What sane man would proclaim America is in the best state it’s ever been in? A neocon, that’s who. Neocons are nothing, but the dogs of big business.
This is what Georgians voted against in the recent Republican gubernatorial primary. They voted for closed borders, the preservation of Georgian identity, a moral society and a Georgia first policy. Let’s hope they can do it again to topple the bigger threat, the raging leftist progressive, Stacy Abrams.
Given this, neocons are essentially the Republican Party’s progressive, minus being the fervent welfare-state advocate and only a watered-down anti-white cheerleader. They have no regard for American identity and definitely no regard for Southern identity. They don’t acknowledge that without white people, these identities would not exist. They are the pawns of globalist elites that seek to topple the West.
