The American Cuckservative Loses Its Place on My Sidebar

Replaced by American Renaissance, from which this excellent article by Linda Preston comes — The Decline of The American Conservative.

All that's wrong with The American Conservative can, as I see it, be summed up in two words: Rod Dreher, who is even more genuinely "horrified" today than Bernie-victory-robbing hitlery was last night in this stupid article — Trump Disqualifies Himself. Rod disqualifies himself, and the degraded magazine he ruined.

Back in '03, I had a subscription to the magazine overseas, when, in Ms. Preston's words, "its main purpose was lambasting the catastrophic Iraq War, [but it] also tackled issues that both the Bush administration and its leftist opposition wouldn’t touch: immigration, multiculturalism, and the erosion of American civil society and social trust." This was a time I could even enjoy this article by Mr. Dreher — Birkenstocked Burkeans.

AmCon still has Daniel Larison, who limits himself to speaking about foreign policy. Some of the more recent additions seem promising, but Dreher is featured way too much on their website because he writes so much.
