This book will generate outrage among the legions of middle American conservatives who have been loyal to the Republican party and conservative movement. Not outrage at the book’s authors, to whom they owe a debt of gratitude for opening their eyes to reality. Rather, outrage at the so-called conservative politicians, lobbyists and think tanks that betrayed their putative constituents’ interests on every front: from trade and economics, to foreign policy and military affairs, and most importantly, as this book forcefully argues, on immigration policy. It is the issue of immigration that threatens to erase the historic American people and replace it with Third Worlders who have no history of or ingrained respect for American traditions and values.
'Cuckservative' demonstrates that the ideas, principles and strategies of the American conservative movement have been misguided and wrong-headed at best, pusillanimous and traitorous at worst. The American conservative movement has done little more than provide cover for the Left, and serve as a kind of show, Potemkin opposition that lulled to complacency and betrayed a credulous conservative base.
Several chapters are devoted to destroying the falsehoods, wishful thinking and myths that conservatives allowed to infect their thinking and guide their policies. The concept of human equality? Completely unfounded. Blank slate theory? Unscientific nonsense. The power of ideas to override genetic propensities and hundreds of years of culture? Utter hogwash. Migration from one country to another as sufficient to transform someone into a "real American"? A laughable absurdity, "Magic Dirt theory", that no one believes when applied to any country other than the U.S., Britain, Western Europe and the Anglosphere. (Regarding this last point, for all the people who claim that fully grown adults, recently arrived from Honduras, Afghanistan or Nigeria are "just as American as me or you", take note that NO ONE – friend or foe – ever argues that Vox Day is "Italian" despite his having lived in Italy for 25 years.)
The authors then present a history of the post-war conservative movement starting with Kirk and Buckley, combined with analysis demonstrating how conservatives have consistently been driven more by a desire for approval from the Left, and fear of its disapprobation, than by any determination to implement actual conservative policies. Indeed, it has almost been defined by attacks upon its own side, throwing allies under the bus and purging anyone who threatened _the worldview of the left_!! With the capitulation to a transformative immigration policy, this ultimately culminated in an existential threat to the very survival of the historic American nation and led the authors do document the betrayal in this book.
The chapter on the history of U.S. immigration policy since 1790 makes it clear that prior to 1965 there was a consistent policy to maintain the fundamentally English and European character of the country, and that the legislation of 1965 was far more revolutionary in overturning that policy than either its critics or advocates every imagined.
The next few chapters show the absolute wrongheadedness of the conventional thinking about immigration: the absurd arguments that have been mustered to justify mass immigration, a devastating take-down of the economic case for open borders (including an overall critique of Ricardian free trade / comparative advantage theory), and a chapter that, with extensive examples, shows that migration has historically essentially been a form of warfare.
It is difficult to do justice in an Amazon review of the absolute wealth of examples, talking points, data points, information, and powerful arguments, and to the number of topics and issues dealt with in these chapters.
The chapter on Christianity and cuckservatism is perhaps the most devastating in the book, and will be the most difficult pill to swallow for those at whom it is aimed. Your ordinary political cuckservative is, at some level, aware of his own pusillanimity and bad faith. Christian cuckservatives are, generally speaking, much more naive, good-hearted and truly well intentioned. For them, looking in the mirror that Vox Day and Red Eagle hold up will be extremely difficult. I would not be surprised if the loudest condemnations of this book come from Christian cuckservatives. Ordinary political conservatives reading this book may reproach themselves for their former credulousness and lack of good judgment, but they may more easily and readily be won over to the worldview that Vox and Red Eagle advocate since they can place the blame on the leaders of the movement. The Christian will have to go through a complete paradigm shift over his basic understanding of his own religion before he will be capable of making that same leap.
This book is a necessary calling to accounts of the conservative movement. It will be a wake-up call to those who placed their trust in the conservative movement. It exposes the failures and betrayals of those who purported to stand athwart history yelling “Uh, if you don’t mind, just ever so slightly a teensy bit more slowly, please”. Expect more people to abandon the movement that failed them and join the nascent identitairian movement of the alternative right. The new movement represents the only real opposition to the Establishment (right and left) and the only real hope for the preservation of the historic American nation.
Theoretically, conservatives were supposed to preserve the ideals and practices that made America great; to remember the reasons America was founded.
We have failed.
This book is about the ways the conservative movement has betrayed the very things it claims to hold most dear, by adopting the false feel-good ideology of the Left.
From the myth of the melting pot to the contorted Bible quotes used to pretend Jesus supported the free immigration of any number of any people anytime, the authors skewer the Leftist lies which the cuckservative Right has swallowed to avoid hurting peoples' feelings.
They also openly discuss the negative effects that immigration brings with it, as cuckservatives are afraid to do. No matter how many Mexican friends you have who totally are as much American at heart as you are, accepting millions of strangers into your country and handing them welfare benefits will not boost the economy. No matter how nice and welcoming in your heart you are to their cultural differences, they will not simply understand and teach their children to vote for American ideals that are alien to their culture of origin. No matter how terrible you feel for the historic oppression of people who looked like them by people who looked like you, unchecked immigration will lead once again to bloodshed and war.
This book may well tell you that beliefs your mother taught you, that you hold dear to your heart, are not just stupid, but will have consequences the ignoring of which is evil.
That is why I recommend this book to conservatives.
Complacency is a terrible mistake. Correct it, before it destroys you and your neighbors.
In an approachable and enjoyable style, the authors explain clearly how the so-called “conservatives” In U.S. politics are backstabbing the country and its citizenry. Day and Eagle cover the history of immigration in the U.S., both before and after the 1965 Immigration act, and examine the wide-ranging effects of large-scale population migrations throughout the last few millennia. Considerable effort is spent to explain and debunk the various pro-immigration views, including those of libertarians, Christians, liberals, and cuckservatives.
What really struck me about this book is that it tied together some of the disparate ideas, themes, and occurrences that I’ve encountered in the last 25 years: statements from religious leaders and politicians, papers from think tanks that never sat right with me, and the continuing cognitive dissonance that occurs when you realize that the reality you grew up in has changed drastically, but most people don’t see it. (yet.)
Another reviewer mentioned that Cuckservative lacks any advice for dealing with the immigration crisis, and while I would have liked to see such a section, I don’t think that’s the point of this book. Rather, I believe the book exists to educate as many people as possible about the dire situation America is in, and how no matter what lies and platitudes the pro-immigration types spout to have readers able to counter them and spread the truth instead.
Buy this book, read it, and tell others. (Even PC types) Your future depends on it, as does the future of any of your children, friends, and loved ones.

Great propaganda, but built of lies by non-Americans (Israel Zangwill and Emma Lazarus respectively), as Vox Day and John Red Eagle proceed to show. Since the post-war years, and arguably even earlier, they document how the so-called conservative movement in the USA has in reality been little more than a false opposition, dedicated more to losing gracefully than fighting to win - unlike their alleged opponents on the left.
Although this book is naturally focused on US politics, it should be required reading for everyone of anyone of a right-of-centre viewpoint, wherever you are in the world, if only to help arm yourself against the arguments used by people brought up in the American conservative tradition. And if you're left-of-centre, it may just help give you some solid insights into the rise of Donald Trump and his new, more openly and avowedly nationalist form of right-wing politics.
This book summaries how self claimed conservatives have gone along with and fundamentally changed America through mass immigration. It justifies this by reviewing this history of mass immigration world wide. It also explores and debunks many immigration myths: melting pot, magic dirt, economic benefits of immigration, how immigration leads to war (not peace) and lastly how Christianity has been corrupted into supporting mass immigration.
If you aren't already up to speed on those topics, you should be and if you are, this book puts them all together in a nice form with the ideas slimmed down into nice rhetorical packages.
As far as this concerns Australia. Well, if you haven't already noticed Australia is radically different from 30 years ago, let alone a hundred. The Australia of my grandparents is long gone. If this concerns you, if the prospect of fighting a civil war concerns you, then this is a good place to start your wake-up point because as far as I can tell, there isn't a single conservative politician or media figure who is willing to talk about legal immigration in a substantive way. (It briefly came up during Kevin Rudd's reign as prime minister, but not in a substantive way.)
Note: Vox calls America's statistics of 13% of Americans foreign born as culture changing. You call that a mass immigration ... Australia's foreign born number at 25%. And with these stats from the ABS, it's getting rapidly worse:
- one birth every 1 minute and 44 seconds,
- one death every 3 minutes and 24 seconds,
- a net gain of one international migration every 2 minutes and 39 seconds, leading to
- an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 31 seconds.
This book and author has opened up the way I think politically as has his two books on SJWs.
