Conservatives are stuck in the dog house, not the tree house.

It has been awhile since I have written anything of note, and that is due to two factors: I am too busy IRL, and every time I start drafting an article, it becomes old news by the end of the week. The controversial news and topics come at us like water from a fire hose. We aren’t able to take it all in and confront each issue. That is by design.
Conservatives Construct their Arguments within the Liberal Frame
While this site is dedicated to “frame” in the context of sexual relationships, one’s “frame” has consequences elsewhere in life. One consequence of your frame is how you view political issues. Are you a subject, or a citizen? Are you independent, or codependent?
The modern conservative is codependent, views themselves as loyal subjects who pay taxes and obey the laws. They worship the corporate monopoly, which provides for them. They worship police, as they can’t defend themselves. They only talk about issues liberals bring up first, as they have nothing to offer themselves. They never say anything too controversial, because they want to participate in the conversation during tea time.
In other words, the modern conservative is a woman. As we know, women exist within, and rely upon, the frame of a man (or are supposed to, as God and nature demand). When we apply this analogy to American politics, the “man” holding frame is none other than the woke progressive left. Ironic because they are all androgynous.
Once you realize this about conservatives, everything makes sense. They talk and talk and talk about issues nonstop, never coming to any resolution, and never taking any action. The top YouTube commentators, podcasts, talk radio, and cable news shows are right wing for this very reason. They also never come to a conclusion about abortion. In fact, their attempts to “end” it have been nothing but a joke — one that gives them an opportunity to raise a ton of money to waste. Yet another similarity.
The two times in history when republicans controlled the presidency and at least one house resulted in zero accomplishments for this very reason. Feewings were consulted and consensus didn’t happen.
For every divisive issue we are presented with, there are a litany of bullshit artists trying to grift. Then there are more honest actors out there, who refuse to think creatively out of fear. I can’t tell the difference anymore.
Today I want to discuss the neoconservative impulse among those on the right wing. To be specific: I am talking about “right wing” commentators who are anti-neocon when it comes to the Middle East, even though they are the new cold warrior neocons who want a war with China, and can’t let go of the idea that ‘Murica should be an empire.
I am talking about people such as Pedro Gonzalez, Ryan Girdusky, Darren Beattie, Scott Greer, Colombian Bugle, Mike Cernovich, et al. You may have never heard of these people, but they are influential on social media platforms, as well as many of the new right’s websites/forums: the same ones that are informing the right wing voter base. They are the new talk radio.
All of these people mock the globalist American empire, neocons, the left, woke culture, and recognize that every single American institution has been coopted by the insane. Yet they desire to remain in that environment, and believe they can “take it back”. Several of the people mentioned above actually want the country to be taken over by the Catholic Church (an indication that they are closeted leftists jealous of power they don’t hold, possibly closeted on other issues as well, and are out of touch with reality by the span of a solar system).
There have been people on the far right and far left calling for some form of secession or peaceful separation of the states for many years. It’s a common sense solution to many problems, as there are, in fact, two America’s with differing social values and priorities. Recently, moderates and even left wing pundits have started discussing a “national divorce.” That should be an indication of the general public’s desire, but because people on the left want it, now the right wing pundits have to oppose it. Consensus on any real working solution is anathema to the distractions away from the real issues. So now we know what’s really important to them.
The marriage between liberals and conservatives in American politics is a toxic relationship, and the problem is the Republican establishment and conservatives who want to scream “no” to everything, even if they were asking for it 5 minutes ago. When you think about it, the right acts like women. Liberals are the husband and conservatives are the wife, and the wife has to be contentious and disagreeable about everything.
The left knows what they want, and they act with deliberate and thoughtful purpose to achieve it — just like a man. They are patient and take an incremental approach until they are in a position to gain a lot of ground at once — just like a man. I don’t know what the Republican party and conservative movement wants, but it’s probably saying “no” and throwing a tantrum over every issue no one cares about — just like a woman.
Who stands against this idea? The people I listed above. They acknowledge that the conservative movement was a failure, that we are on a leftward trend, etc., but they refuse to break away from the failed thinking of past conservatives. They can’t divorce because they have nothing of their own contribution to stand upon. They can’t stop behaving like a woman and create their own frame.
