The neoconservatives have been forced from the shadows to throw their hats in the political arena. This is something these clandestine kingmakers have been reluctant to do for decades and rightly so; they have controlled the Republican Party under the miasma of moderation, selling out the conservative voices of Americans: but no longer.
The conservative movement that is sweeping this country is taking back the Republican Party and these neocons are raising their heads to cry foul. Last week Charles Krauthammer the neoconservative prophet decried the CPAC as “Fringe elements in the republican party.” He stated, and I paraphrase here, The CPAC is a bunch of college student who what to be Ayn Rand, then eventually grow up to become republicans.
Then there is the prodigal son, Bill Crystal whose father Erving pioneered the neoconservative movement based on the philosophical musings of Leo Strauss, with a smattering of Machiavellian politics. Bill said of the Egyptian uprising, and I paraphrase here, it is 1776 all over again.
He dismisses America’s failed foreign policy in the Middle East, comparing the anarchy of the mob with the American Revolution which created the freest most prosperous nation in history. He and his cohorts from the Bush administration are responsible for empowering the Islamic theocracy sweeping the Middle East. They took radical Islam out of the back streets and alley ways, and placed them in political driver’s seat in Iraq and soon to be Egypt. Not to worry, they say, this is democracy at work, this is freedom. No… . This is a process that empowers our enemies and threatens civilization as we know it.
Poor Harry Reid can’t figure it out either. He said, and I paraphrase here, the Republican Party has been hijacked by the Tea Party and won’t compromise. What he should have said is: “The conservatives have taken back the Republican Party and we can no longer manipulate the neocons.”
You will hear the media in the coming months refer to a rift in the Republican Party. That’s just us, the “Fringe elements” in the Republican Party reshaping it in our conservative image as we strive to save our country from the economic abyss, while restoring fiscal sanity, our liberty and constitution.
