“Corporate HR departments everywhere are trying to ban this book!”
“This book definitely needs a giant TRIGGER WARNING!”
This book is the first of its kind in our times—an in depth exploration of how the establishment conservative party line has become an appendage of the left. It uses immigration and race to define the issue and present evidence. Interestingly enough—the book wasn’t provocative in an "in your face" way. The authors used solid evidence to back their views from well-known sources. This book can be used just as effectively against the left as the moderate right. It won’t give you good sound bites or good rhetoric—it largely stays with the dialectic.
The word cuckservative is just starting to be used in political discourse outside of academia and shows a large division from the politically correct / leftist-tolerated moderate right and the emergent (not emerging) alt-right. Just as leftists have used the evil trifecta of “racist sexist homophobe” to demonize the right and shut down discourse, the alt-right is coming back with its own pejoratives. Seeing the reaction of the establishment right huff and puff is truly entertaining and shows how effective this leftist tactic is.
Another first of this book is that it violated the “confessions of faith” in just about every social sciences discipline that exists. In every social science, there is a central belief—or confession of faith that if violated will get you expelled from that community. In economics the faith is Keynesianism—the belief that more government spending is good and keeps the economy running with no adverse consequences should private sector demand diminish to the point where it hurts the profits of large corporations. In cultural anthropology the confession of faith is “All cultures are created equal and you are not allowed to judge according to your own cultural standards.” This book definitely violates that one. Another comes from the field of criminology: “There are no racial disparities in perpetrators of violent crime.” This book goes into biological theories of crime and biological differences across races. Introductory criminology texts always devote a large section to theories of criminality with an obligatory section debunking biological theories followed by leftist theories about how poverty, racism, and everything else causes crime.
I found it interesting that the authors included Native Americans in their discussion of races and IQ. I note that the authors are both Native American. They did not exclude discussion of their own culture / race.
Probably the most damning evidence against the immigration proponents is the “magic dirt / tragic dirt” theory that underlies both pro-immigration stances and Section 8 housing.
This book is guaranteed to send the establishment everywhere into conniption fits. Just about every chapter is guaranteed to offend establishment groups somewhere. The chapters discussing race are probably the largest touchpoint with the media today. If you don’t like this book or the arguments therein, don’t trash the authors—argue the issues. But as Dr. Gary North says when discussing race instead of individuals, “Race is not destiny. Ethics is destiny.”
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.
