Our political establishment always eagerly supports reform as long as it is no more than theater meant to fool the voters, an entirely phony exercise. In the early 1990s, I held in my hand a small-run book, “Lip Service,” by Richard Viguerie, which highlighted the attempts of Republican leaders to fool conservatives.
Finally, after years of conservatives ignoring the obvious need, Steve Bannon, former Trump White House adviser and Breitbart editor, is launching a sustained war to eject Democrats pretending to be Republicans and elect actual, genuine Republicans to the U.S. Congress. Our country is lost without this. But many have started such efforts before and have always lacked the persistence, wisdom and determination to carry it through. Efforts like Bannon’s have always failed because conservatives excel at giving up too soon.
On Wednesday, leading conservatives like Ken Cuccinelli and Brent Bozell demanded that Mitch McConnell resign as Senate majority leader, along with his entire leadership team in Congress. (Trump should announce a nomination of McConnell as ambassador to Australia.)
But predictably, on cue, we hear howls and shrieks from the swamp. Nominating conservative candidates will result in Democrats winning the seats in the general election. Against all historical evidence, the establishment always argues that we must never nominate a real conservative because the Democrat will win the office.
Christine O’Donnell pops up in political commentary almost every day in my news alerts, citing the example of her 2010 run for the U.S. Senate from Delaware. Apologists for the swamp try to persuade us never to elect conservative candidates. But this is the same false narrative that dishonest members of the establishment have been peddling for 50 to 60 years. Just hand write the latest name into the blanks of the template and change a few details.
