Transnational Progressivism Has Infiltrated the GOP and Free Republic

Reader comment on item: [Bureaucratic Leftism and] Globalthink's Perils

Look at what happened today. Specter is now in there, and truly conservative judges will have a rough time. Bush will leave us with the luke warm not the stark and correct.

I recently was temporarily banned from Free Republic, why? For stating Burkian Conservative beliefs, even when they conflicted with the current administration's luke warm policy points and for outing false conservatives who happen to be in favor there due to their support of Bush [by the way, I am a two time George W Bush voter myself, and still am attempting to correct the course of the GOP, just for the record!]

Of note, both in the administration and at Free Republic, Transnational Progressivism in various forms has intruded. Look at any Big Tenter, any "economic Libertarian," any Free Trader, and certainly, any fellow traveller of the seemingly teflon covered Grover Norquist Jr. Scratch the surface and you'll find a Transnational Progressive.

The old terminology no longer works.

I use National Boshevik, Communist, Islamist, Transnational Progressive, true Rightist, Burkian Conservative and the like. I like to keep things clear. I like to know who are my real friends and who are my many enemies.
