While under fierce attack from President Obama, the Israeli prime minister defends Western values and speaks the truth about Iran. The leader of the free world will be addressing Congress on Tuesday. The American president is doing everything possible to undermine him.No further comment needed, but we'll just type "Treason!1!" anyway.

This may (but probably doesn't) bear closer examination than the headline alone; couldn't drag myself more than a few paragraphs in.
Conservatism as CountercultureRead more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414644/conservatism-counterculture-shelby-steeleGoing to pre-judge & figure it's another loser just realizing he's lost, & scared that the marginalization he's practiced for yrs. will be turned on him†. New theme w/ the forces of reaction? Mmmm, could be.
As quoted by alicublog, Rod Dreher is building a cultural ark.
This is not going to be stopped by us. But one day, it is going to stop. We know where this is going. The task of the traditionalist today is to live in such a way that truth and sanity survive the darkening of our collective intellect. That we not forget who we are, and what is. This is hard work, but as the Noah myth should instruct us, it is past time to start building that cultural ark.Also from Dreher, while bemoaning the homosexual take-over of the Bush campaign:
Clown acts like Phil Robertson growling at CPAC about hippie herpes, and how we need real Christians in the White House, are a distraction at best from political reality. This reality is something that social and religious conservatives have to come to terms with.People who wear big rubber noses & fright wigs really shouldn't call anyone else a clown act, should they?
Absorbing this lesson is critically important for the church, so Christians can learn how to be authentically Christian in a post-Christian, and increasingly anti-Christian, culture.

†Naw, turns out it's just a bunch of whining crap from an old racist prick:
The über value of dissociation [You don't want to know, & I doubt he does either. M.B. (As if it would be anyone else.)] declares any emphasis on personal responsibility or the work ethic — or any other such self-demanding value — to be racist when used to explain minority weakness.
