The Whigs Are Back, and Cowering More Than Ever
Well, conservatives have their own Whig establishment today, people who refuse to support Donald Trump the Vulgarian – George Will, Jonah Goldberg, Paul Ryan, and Bill Kristol prominent among them. In this do-or-die election between a radical-left fanatic (Hillary) and a commonsense conservative (Donald Trump), our Whigs are priggishly sitting out the fight. It’s a breathtaking 50-50 election, and their systematic betrayal may bring us another four to eight years of Hillary Clinton, symbolic daughter of Betty Friedan the Communist.
It’s only one small step from being an “idealistic globalist” to committing treason against one’s nation. Our college students these days are taught that patriotism is evil and globalism is good. Radicals like Hillary live in denial that America is only real protection from a dangerous world.
Is Hillary still the radical leftist who came out of Wellesley college? It is the only way to explain her treacherous behavior – in Benghazi, in the email leak of national security secrets, and in her close alliance with the most obvious Muslim Brotherhood agent in the world, Huma Abedin.

An undergrad thesis called “There is Only the Fight,” as Hillary did. The word “Fight” is the same in Communi-jargon as the word “Struggle” in Marx, which is the same as “Kampf” in Hitler’s Mein Kampf, which is the same as “jihad” in radical Islam. Militant war-making fanaticism is always the same; only the labels change, to keep the enemy confused. But Saul Alinsky did us the favor of defining “the enemy” as the American middle class.
In other words, Hillary’s heroine Betty Friedan was what we are now supposed to call a “community organizer.” In the 1940s and 50s, when Friedan grew up on the hard left, that term was a “Communist organizer.”
We are seeing a flashpoint in the Culture War that was started by the left. Wars separate the sheep from the goats. Our conservative Whigs are hiding in their foxholes, thereby forfeiting their credibility forever. But the left is hanging together – for fear of Obama’s wrath, for fear of Podesta as Hillary’s Enforcer, for fear of the mafia links advocated by Saul Alinsky, or maybe all of the above. Trump is leading a true popular rising against the monopoly establishment. Win, lose, or draw, this moment will echo down the years, and direct consequences will be felt.
