William F. Buckley, Doug Wilson, & the Lying Lugenpresse Anointing our Leaders

In the early 1950’s a young man named William F. Buckley was tapped by the CIA to serve as the single head of the conservative movement that was rising then in America. The problem the CIA hoped to correct by tapping Buckley as their guy is that the conservative movement was getting out of control because it was such a broad and variegated movement. By anointing Buckley as the head of the movement that gave the CIA the ability to streamline the conservative movement into one single expression and thus could be monitored, controlled, and manipulated more easily. In his position as unofficial head of the conservative movement Buckley became the guy who was the gatekeeper of conservatism. Without Buckley’s legitimizing nod any hopeful movement conservative was out in the wasteland. By not granting that nod Buckley read Robert Welch and the Birchers out of the conservative movement early on. In later years Buckley threw Sam Francis, Peter Brimelow, and Joe Sobran out of the conservative movement. Murray N. Rothbard’s “The Betrayal of the American Right,” exposes all this.

The reason I go into all this history is to suggest that it may well be being repeated. Here we are in a time where Christian Nationalism is on the rise and suddenly we find the left wing Media anointing who the “Leader” is going to be by hotfooting it out to Moscow Idaho to do a mild hit piece on Doug Wilson. They hit Doug just hard enough for everyone to think that Doug must now be the leader of this Christian Nationalism movement that they kind of like. Next, we learn the BBC is coming out to do another mild hit piece on Doug.

The irony in all this is that Doug has said how he was a National Review junkie for years and years. Doug loved him some William F. Buckley. Now Doug has become Wm. F. Buckley. Pity poor Doug.

Now, any other time Conservatives know that they are not going to get a fair shake from the National and International media and so they decline the opportunity to be flayed alive. Conservatives know that in interviews their words will be spliced and segments will be edited by the Lugenpresse. But does that stop Doug from opening his doors to the Lugenpresse? Not Doug … nope, Doug steps right up to the microphone and speaks. And in so doing what has happened is that Doug becomes the leader of the “Christian Nationalism” movement and this despite the fact that all Doug is offering is warmed over classical Liberalism and not Christian Nationalism at all. Doug now has what Buckley had long ago and that is the ability to read who is and who is not part of a movement that the media says is such a danger. The man steps right up to the microphone in his latest column and thanks the media for making him the titular head of the Christian Nationalist movement;

“Christian nationalism is on the rise!”, they (the Lugenpresse) shout, like Paul Revere riding off into the night, and then their Exhibit A is the work God has assigned to us in our little town. Okay, so now we are part of the face of Christian nationalism. Now this is a term I would not have picked out at a store, but it is a term (for reasons explained elsewhere) I am willing to work with). Now the fly in their ointment is this. I have been publicly arguing against various forms of anti-Semitism for years now, and I have been brawling with white supremacists and kinists for decades. So as part of my acceptance speech, I am now in a position begin this way. “Thank you, thank you. This is truly a great honor. I want to begin by saying that Christian nationalism stands for the need for mankind to base all of our laws on the firm foundation of coming to God the Father through the worship of a Jew. And because of this we have good news for all mankind, for the Jew first, and then also for the Greek (Rom. 1:16 2:9-10).

The hilarious thing is that Doug has already said that Kinists are not allowed in his Christian Nationalism and so Doug is already acting like Buckley in assigning who does and does not get to be part of his movement. And as I said earlier Doug is no more Christian Nationalist with his classical liberal lean then Lenin was a Russian Royalist.

In short, those of us who are Christian Nationalist are being betrayed by the Lugenpresse being allowed to choose for us who is the head of the movement we have been serving as winter soldiers now for years. Wilson’s is as much of a dead end for Christian Nationalism as Buckley now in retrospect is seen as having been a dead end for conservatism.

What are the alternatives?

Well, I think we need to start looking more and more towards Dr. Adi Schlebush’s “Pactum Institute,” as providing the only real resistance left. Publishers like Zach Garris and Ruben Alvarado need our support if we are going to raise a protest to the dishwater vision of Doug Wilson’s Christian Nationalism ruining us all.

  1. Weird how Wilson puts C.S. Lewis and Tolkien on pedestals. British Christian Nationalism good, but American version bad, apparently…

    There seems to be a common thread between Doug Wilson and the David French/TGC globalists:

    Obviously it doesn’t mean ALL boomers/reformed/dispensationalists are problematic. But there are problems…

    You see more Christian Nationalism with:
    Gen X/Zoomers
    Postmillennialists/amillennialists/dominionists/kingdom now-types

    Again… exceptions abound. Just stirring the pot for edification.

      1. Pentecostals are all MAGA dude. They jump up and down and practically speak in tongues for Trump.

        Too many cucks are reformed. They drink IPAs and smoke pipes and cry about how mean Drumpf is. Sad!

      2. The Reformed of today would not be recognized by their Fathers from generations ago. You are right in your analysis. Reformed = Cuck city.

    1. Geeeze, 10 seconds, just 10 seconds to do 2 quick searches….

      Doug Wilson, born 1953, aka Boomer
      David French, born 1969, aka Gen X

    2. Doug is absolutely not a dispensationalist. He’s post-mil and probably calls himself a soft or “small t” theonomist. He’s heavily influenced by 1970s-80s Christian Reconstructionism, including its eschatology. I’m guessing David French is a “2 Kingdoms” amil who says the kingdom of God has nothing to do with politics….yet spends his every waking moment attacking anyone more conservative than Mitt Romney (Christian or not). “Punching to the right” (including ridiculous “Christian nationalism” fear-mongering”) is the favorite activity of @NeverTrump/Lincoln Project types.

  2. Even a dogmatic Nationalist has to submit to the discipline of ideas when dealing with ideas. None of these labels like Boomer, Dispensationalist, X-Millennialist, Reformed, Pentecostal, Barbarian, Scythian, mean jack friggin’ squat when it comes to seeing through what the Satanic Globalists are up to. Only in terms of ideas and principles can any relationship be understood. I’d suppose, for example, that A-Millennialists would be more susceptible to the siren song of the Beast & The False Prophet because they lack a firm understanding of how Jesus Christ will literally rule and reign on earth on the throne of David for a literal 1K years on the earth. But I don’t assume each individual A-Millennialist falls in to that trap of thinking that The Beast is the Messiah. A person can consider The Millennium to be metaphorical whilst also seeing that the World Enslavement Forum is evil and should be opposed.
    As for Nationalism itself, the world is more Nationalist than it has ever been in the last 6K years. It ought to be easy to convince people that Nationalism is important and worthy of support and is much superior to either Tribalism or Imperialism for the purpose of promoting peace and prosperity for the human race.

  3. I don’t think Doug Wilson is that much of a threat, tbh. Andrew Torba is the one who literally wrote the book, “Christian Nationalism,” and the media will use him as a bogeyman far more often thanks to his consistent naming of (((them))) and the continued spectacular growth of Gab.
