We Are Becoming Like the European Right: Aimless, Mindless, and Ineffective | 2/14/24
Everyone is scratching their heads over the GOP loss in NY-03, but as I point out today, it’s about a broader pattern of Republicans underperforming for the past few years of special and regular elections at a time when they should be crushing Democrats. We now have a Republican Party that is the lowest common denominator between Trump’s baggage and the old establishment’s aimless message and policies. The Right has become reactionary, unfocused, and undisciplined, so the establishment continues to win red-state primaries and the Democrats continue to win competitive elections. This is exactly like the European dynamic, in which the globalists continue to win because the only semblance of a right wing is reactionary and ineffective. I give an example of how Tucker Carlson is becoming such a figure, latching onto mindless pacifism as a foreign policy and giving us a false dichotomy between neo-cons and somehow supporting Gaza and Iran.
