NR can’t argue with Booker ideologically since Lonegan is a lunatic who thinks his being “happy being a guy” is actual policy so they resort to pathetic crap like this. This is typical of NR though, a magazine that I must repeatedly note at its founding had no problem with segregation since its founder believed integration to be a Communist plot.

Thing is, Booker is as classic a conservative as can be found in American politics today. The vast majority of republicans, and even people like Chris Christie - are not conservative. They’re a mash-up of right wing reactionaries(the majority), fascists and anarchists.
Which is why the a right wing tabloid needs to pretend that a police report is required to confirm Booker’s story - a form of ‘logic’ that only a wingnut could justify.

You’re right. They are reactionary. It’s a much better description than conservative at this point.

I refer to them as revolutionaries. It is, in my opinion, their goal to destroy the United States of America and then remake it in an authoritarian manner. Or, failing that to grab what power they can from the wreckage and live like Afghani warlords. Either would be a positive outcome in their minds.

The closest historical analog is the Bolsheviks.

See, I see them as reactionaries because they’re seeking to return America to the past- i.e. slut shaming women who have sex before marriage, rampant homophobia, second class treatment of racial and religious minorities, etc. The Bolsheviks and this is by no means a defense of them saw themselves as moving Russia forward.
