On David Brooks, Quisling Punks, and the Course of Human Events

Who other but David Brooks could write this swill?

Brace yourselves: Tea Partiers are now inherently anticonservative.

But the Tea Partiers are closer to the New Left. They don’t seek to form a counter-establishment because they don’t believe in establishments or in authority structures. They believe in the spontaneous uprising of participatory democracy. They believe in mass action and the politics of barricades, not in structure and organization. As one activist put it recently on a Tea Party blog: “We reject the idea that the Tea Party Movement is ‘led’ by anyone other than the millions of average citizens who make it up.”

For this reason, both the New Left and the Tea Party movement are radically anticonservative. Conservatism is built on the idea of original sin — on the assumption of human fallibility and uncertainty. To remedy our fallen condition, conservatives believe in civilization — in social structures, permanent institutions and just authorities, which embody the accumulated wisdom of the ages and structure individual longings.

What’s most funny about this?  The radical Lefties in the White House are doing their damnedest to tear down our democracy–the Constitution, social structures, institutions, and just authorities–in order to impose their own socialist vision.  Conservatives believe in the Constitution, Mr. Brooks, and our God-given rights.  And if the social structures, institutions, and just authorities have been completely and utterly corrupted by liberals and infected with politically correct group-think, then they need to be replaced.

That’s right replaced.  À la Dan Riehl:

Reconcile this, you distasteful, malevolent little quisling punk – a timely reminder of some words I never thought would have such import during my lifetime.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

The cause is well known and it is just. When the alleged leader of a democratic republic places his own wishes so above those of the complete body politic, he is no longer worthy of the title, leader, no matter what office he might occupy.

Quisling.  My new word of the day.  More:

This neophyte, this joke we have in the White House has absolutely no idea of the force and the rage he is about to unleash on him and his entire political party. If there are not enough responsible adults left within his party to rein in this accidental, affirmative action jerk, this self-styled, extremely flawed little man, then his party is worthless to America. It deserves to be marginalized electorally and, ultimately, utterly destroyed, before being relegated to the dung heap of history with the rest of the marxist, socialist clowns Americans have dispatched before.

Read the rest.  Hat tip: The Anchoress.
