Calling out “Vichy conservatives”

And yet they call themselves conservatives when they are too proud to do the best at conserving what is left

“It is the most abject and dishonorable surrender to the worst ideological enemy conservatives have ever faced: both Obama and Hillary, the two most dangerous candidates for the Oval Office in two centuries of American history.”

In a piece titled “Of course Trump is a real conservative“, James Lewis writes passionately about the abject betrayal of American ideals and values by such so-called “conservatives” (he calls them “Conn-es”, members of the Conservative establishment) as George Will, Bill Kristol, and Jonah Goldberg.

Lewis is perhaps, for many, a bit too harsh toward the “NeverTrumpers”, whose position automatically makes them “ForeverHillary”, comparing them to the treacherous Vichy French who collaborated fully with Adolph Hitler in WWII.

In fact, they are dedicated and devoted, first and foremost, to their self-interest and to their hold on what power they feel they have.

It is a provocative piece and worth a read as it exposes the people we thought really were interested in a strong, fair America, adhering to the high principles it has avowed.

While I would not use the term “Vichy Americans” to describe these people, I would concur with much of what Lewis writes.

I would only add that, with great sadness, and a measure of anger and outrage, the entire Bush “presidential” entourage to that despicable crowd.   Bold our emphasis.

Excerpt from:  Of course Trump is a real conservative   By James Lewis at American Thinker.

War has a way of clarifying where people stand.  When the Hitler War came to Europe, the French government fled from Paris to Vichy and offered to Hitler all the innocent French Jews he could murder.  Vichy France surrendered with hardly a shot fired.

The worst war in European history did nothing good, but it clarified Good and Evil.  Almost every occupied country in Europe turned out to have its native Nazis.  Denmark was a noble exception, but Sweden sold arms to both Hitler and the Allies.  Norway had its Quisling.  War clarifies, and generally the things it shows are shocking and discouraging.

Perhaps the most shocking fact today is the open betrayal of the Conn-es – the self-proclaimed conservative establishment has openly abandoned the nominee of the Republican Party.  Don’t misunderstand this: the very conservatives who have been flying the flag of true most vigorously have betrayed the cause.

This is the flight to Vichy, American style.  It is the most abject and dishonorable surrender to the worst ideological enemy conservatives have ever faced: both Obama and Hillary, the two most dangerous candidates for the Oval Office in two centuries of American history.

Trump is as conservative as any Republican candidate for president in the last half-century – who were always supported (sometimes with reservations) by the Conn-es, the Conservative Establishiment.  Bill Buckley and National Review supported Nixon and Ford with deep reservation as the best of the available options.  Neither Nixon nor Ford was a 100-percent pure conservative.  But they were far, far better than the alternatives, and Buckley’s National Review chose the most practical realistic option.

Not so Buckley’s and Irving Kristol’s successors.  Given a true conservative battler, who takes the fight to the enemy, Donald Trump, they have fled to the foxholes.  I know I will never trust them again; I certainly will not buy their magazines or pay for their advertisers.  No.  I’m waiting for a New Conservative Media to emerge (as it is already doing), and I will boycott the Old Conn-es who failed to fight when their support was crucial.


Goodbye in your future endeavors, but this black mark of cowardice at a crucial moment in American history will forever stand against you.  And that goes for Paul Ryan and all the other sellouts as well.  This is the most dangerous moment in American history since the Stalin-era Communists sold the Manhattan Project plans to Stalin.  It is even worse, because the West is constantly infiltrated by jihad forces on top of the usual leftist treason.
Well, you have chosen your path.

Millions of U.S. conservatives fervently hope that you lose, along with the Obamas and Hillary.
