Rich Lowry: The Treason of the Elites

By Hunter Wallace for Occidental Dissent

When I saw the headline of Rich Lowry’s cover story in the latest edition of National Review, I found myself wondering for a minute if he had written a confession, but of course by treasonous elites he wasn’t referring to mainstream conservatism.

Charlie Kirk can’t shut up about how “America is an idea” that has no racial, cultural, ethnic or religious foundation. True Conservatives see the United States as an economy based on liberal values that is devoted to the interests of Israel. For the last 50 years, they have systematically purged and marginalized everyone on the Right who has said otherwise.

Conservative liberals have fully bought into this notion that has gained traction since World War II that America is “a creedal nation” and that it should be organized as an Open Society and that White identity is uniquely illegitimate. These people have played the decisive role in weakening the American nation and pushing us toward this future crisis by thwarting all resistance to it for two generations. Now, they want to rebrand themselves as “nationalists” and move into our space where they hope to perpetuate the status quo of conservative liberalism.

National Review:

“In the late 1970s, a little-known left-wing professor and activist decided to embark on a three-year-long project to balance the alleged patriotic bias in American historical writing.

His name was Howard Zinn, and his project became the book A People’s History of the United States, a desecration of American memory that is the single most destructive act in the annals of American historiography. …

The clerisy has often been abetted in this project by leaders of the country, including government mandarins who were robustly nationalist until the latter half of the 20th century. “Then in the 1960s and 1970s,” the late social scientist Samuel Huntington wrote, “they began to promote measures consciously designed to weaken America’s cultural and creedal identity and to strengthen racial, ethnic, cultural, and other subnational identities. These efforts by a nation’s leaders to deconstruct the nation they governed were, quite possibly, without precedent in human history.”

We live in their ongoing anti-national experiment. …”

Rich Lowry’s new book on nationalism is coming out next month.

The Jews that he mentions in this article, which is adapted by his book, who have been rewriting our history and dismantling the American nation really were terrible. Lowry brings up Howard Zinn and Horace Kallen. Eric Kaufmann covered both of them in his book The Rise and Fall of Anglo-America which I read in college back in 2004 during the Iraq War.

In his new book Return of the Strong Gods, Rusty Reno covers Karl Popper, Sigmund Freud, Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Jacques Derrida and Milton Friedman and several more of the most poisonous Jewish intellectuals of the postwar era. A more exhaustive list would have included Betty Friedan, Franz Boas, Hannah Arendt, Herbert Marcuse and the New York Intellectuals. Several of these including Irving Kristol and Norm Podhoretz were behind the neoconservative takeover of the postwar Right which was policed to make it “good for the Jews.”

Rich Lowry doesn’t discuss the elephant in the room in this article which is that America’s WASP elite crumbled in the mid-20th century. The Yankees who had dominated the United States since the War Between the States lost power and influence. They lost control of the North to the Jews and their allies after the meritocratic system was implemented in the Ivy League universities. The new cosmopolitan Jewish elite through its control of the news media and entertainment media and its strength in higher education and finance began to dissolve the American nation.

Who rules America? The ruling class were Southerners from Washington to Lincoln’s time. We lost control of America to the Yankee. The Yankees ruled America from Lincoln’s time to FDR. They lost control of America to the Jews. The Jews have ruled America since World War II. Rich Lowry and his ilk are incapable of doing anything about the problem. It was liberalism that facilitated the Jewish takeover in the first place. The root causes of the dismantling of the American nation are the hostile Jewish elite and the liberal order that rationalizes and perpetuates their rule. The role of conservative liberalism in our system is to guard its right flank.

Rich Lowry’s embrace of the phony “conservative nationalism” is just another attempt to guard that right flank from mounting populist and nationalist fury.

Note: I fully acknowledge that there were Gentiles who played a major role in creating the postwar liberal consensus like Gunnar Myrdal, but it was still overwhelmingly Jewish.
