An Old Testament prophet said, “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land[.]” That’s part of a Bible verse from Ezekiel – chapter 22, verse 30 – and the gist of what Ezekiel said is that God went looking for a man to stand in the gap to stop sin’s encroachment. It was 600 B.C. or so that God judged His people.

Fast-forward some 2,600 years to the days of William F. Buckley. Mr. Buckley said something similar to Ezekiel’s words when Buckley defined a conservative as “someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop.” Buckley’s quote is on point. Not since Ronald Reagan has a U.S. president said something like that and meant it. There is another whose words echo Buckley’s, but let’s digress a bit before we concern ourselves with him.

It was August of 1968, and I remember it as though it were yesterday, as I watched the televised riots in Chicago outside the meeting of the Democrat National Convention. If I remember right, hardly anyone was arrested. The rioters, barbarians all, were at the door. Usually, when barbarians come, somebody bars the door, but not this time.

Why did party leaders treat the rioters so mildly? Perhaps they wanted new blood to energize a tired old party. If that was their purpose, they got what they wanted, but they got something else, too. This new blood with all its new energy supplanted the old order, and today that “new blood,” or its protégés, runs the DNC. Naturally, in order to look presentable, the barbarians took baths, put on clean clothes, and combed their hair. It was a façade, a change in appearance only.
