COLUMN: Jonah Goldberg Reprimands National Review Writer for Citing 1993 Book Excerpt Predicting Trump Phenomenon

REDPILLED Media Weekly Column

Neocon never-Trumper Jonah Goldberg two days ago publicly reprimanded young nationalist writer Nate Hochman for tweeting out a brilliantly-prescient analysis from late paleoconservative thinker Sam Francis appearing in his 1993 masterpiece on the failure of the post-war conservative movement in America called ‘Beautiful Losers‘.

Goldberg, who famously served as editor at National Review for over 20 years, punched far below his weight in attempting to embarrass college student and current National Review contributor Hochman for exposing the myriad shortcomings (put charitably) of the ideology pushed by Goldberg and others within the Republican establishment for many decades. In a Twitter reply to Hochman, Goldberg calls Francis “brilliant” before shamefully defaming the influential columnist as a “dangerous crank,” — tellingly absolutely refusing to engage with the ideas put forward by Francis.

The lengthy paragraph shared by Hochman from Francis’s book reads:

It remains possible today to rectify that error by a radical alteration of the Right’s strategy. Abandoning the illusion that it represents an establishment to be “conserved,” a new American Right must recognize that its values and goals lie outside and against the establishment and that its natural allies are not in Manhattan, Yale, and Washington but in the increasingly alienated and threatened strata of Middle America. The strategy of the Right should be to enhance the polarization of Middle Americans from the incumbent regime, not to build coalitions with the regime’s defenders and beneficiaries. Moreover, since “Middle America” consists of workers, farmers, suburbanites and other non- or postbourgeois groups, as well as small businessmen, it is unlikely that a new Right will make much progress in mobilizing them if it simply repeats the ideological formulas of a now long-defunct bourgeois elite and its order. The more salient concerns of postbourgeois Middle Americans that a new Right can express are those of crime, educational collapse, the erosion of their economic status, and the calculated subversion of their social, cultural, and national identity by forces that serve the interests of the elite above them and the underclass below them, but at the expense of the middle class. A new Right, positioning itself in opposition to the elite and the elite’s underclass ally, can assert its leadership of alienated Middle Americans and mobilize them in radical opposition to the regime.

Goldberg’s full response: “Sam Francis was brilliant. He was also a dangerous crank who ended his days railing about interracial TV commercials. Worth keeping that in mind.” No comment yet from Goldberg regarding Joe Biden’s constant off-topic mentions of interracial TV commercials during public appearances — clearly a favorite topic of discussion for the administration.

Importantly, the selection in question directly referenced Goldberg et al.’s intellectualized globalist elitist conservatism, a parasitic force in right-wing politics, in contrast with a populist-nationalist ideology — to Goldberg’s chagrin currently rising within the Republican Party — which more accurately represents the sentiments of the Republican base.

The otherwise mind-boggling interaction between longtime Washington fat cat Goldberg and young college student Hochman is thus made clear considering the excerpt in the context of Goldberg’s professional career which, needless to say, has been dedicated to enriching and entrenching a selfish, malicious establishment and its failed ideology at the expense of those whom he ostensibly portrays himself as working for: voters.

In fact, Francis often wrote of this exact phenomenon, which incidentally is quite commonplace in today’s political atmosphere, eventually coining the term “anarcho-tyranny.” Francis describes the concept this way in a piece for Chronicles Magazine published the same year as was Beautiful Losers:

This condition, which in some of my columns I have called “anarcho-tyranny,” is essentially a kind of Hegelian synthesis of what appear to be dialectical opposites: the combination of oppressive government power against the innocent and the law-abiding and, simultaneously, a grotesque paralysis of the ability or the will to use that power to carry out basic public duties such as protection or public safety. And, it is characteristic of anarcho-tyranny that it not only fails to punish criminals and enforce legitimate order but also criminalizes the innocent.

Still apparently an unnecessary interjection by a well-known political figure on a studying amateur, the exchange is even better understood as a microcosm of the oft-mentioned hence trite though true rise of Trumpism within the GOP in correlation with the decline of the outdated Buckleyite conservatism to which Goldberg and others not only refuse to let go of but continue to blindly profess and aggressively promote, albeit to increasingly smaller audiences.

The main takeaway from this and related events seemingly yields another largely vapid and commonly-uttered nevertheless wholly accurate prognostication: the Trump Revolution is not at all over; it has only just begun.
