  • Gen Z conservatives have awakened

    The most significant political development since Trump's election. Gen Z has awakened:

    Donald Trump Jr. and Trump campaign senior adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle came prepared with snappy rejoinders for liberal protesters who might taunt them on Sunday at the University of California at Los Angeles, where they promoted Trump Jr.'s new book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.”

    But when unruly heckling drowned out the couple’s answers, leading the pair to walk offstage, it wasn’t leftists who cut the event short. Instead, the rebukes came from a crowd of young people who rank among the most ardent and extreme supporters of President Trump.

    As first reported by the Guardian, a number of conservatives — some in Make America Great Again caps and pro-Trump attire — began to shout at the president’s son and political adviser 20 minutes into an event moderated by Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, after learning a question-and-answer session had been canceled.

    Video from the event showed a chant that started out as “U-S-A! U-S-A!” turning quickly into angry cries of “Q-and-A! Q-and-A!” Minutes later, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle stormed off the stage.

    The chaotic scene contradicted Trump Jr.'s central thesis that liberals have grown so intolerant of dissenting voices, conservative politicians can no longer engage in civil discourse. It also exposed an increasingly hostile fissure between conservative student groups like Turning Point USA and a hard-right faction of young Trump devotees who have flocked to self-professed “American Nationalist” Nicholas Fuentes and his “America First” movement.

        It's exposing Conservative Inc as the fraud it is.

            Why do you consider Ben Shapiro not a conservative?

              Maybe because Shapiro insists that he's far more libertarian than he is conservative

              Keep in mind the above is just a guess while I wait for dinner.

                Too soft on whether the Holocaust happened compared to this particular crowd, perhaps.

                  People like Charlie Kirk are obvious fakes given their attempts to redefine conservatism to include LGBT affirmation.

                  Shapiro started off as a war-mongering neocon (neocons are not real conservatives) and now is completely unprincipled.

                  But is it possible for a Hollywood-produced figure to actually relate to ordinary Americans? Judging by Shapiro’s disdain for the policies proffered by President Donald J. Trump, which are mainly aimed at helping ordinary Americans survive and feed their families, Shapiro lacks perspective to understand why such a large portion of people who identify as conservatives support the president.

                  It makes sense. Daily Wire was initially funded by billionaire Farris Wilks, a member of the out of touch donor class. Shapiro, in his ivory tower in Sherman Oaks, California where his company is headquartered, has been completely sanitized by the Republican elite since he graduated from Harvard Law.

                  Then again, Shapiro is something of a fence-sitter, every now-and then tossing a bone to the MAGA crowd to keep their clicks coming.

                  “Shapiro had achieved megastardom, even as he oscillated in his opinion of Trump,” said Vanity Fair. “To his former culture-warrior brethren, Shapiro was trying to have it both ways: pretending to be a populist one day, then trying to stake out a position as a Respectable Conservative the next, and then pissing off everyone by, say, tweeting inappropriate comments during George H.W. Bush’s funeral.”

                  The bottom line, of which Shapiro seems proud, is this: Daily Wire is a Hollywood-produced act to spout whatever is the popular “Respectable Conservative” opinion of the day, which in turn leads to clicks and page views, and thus revenue. “He was hardcore ‘Never Trump’ and pretends to be pro-Trump now that it’s clear that going full Never Trump makes you a [Bill] Kristol or [Evan] McMullin,”

                  Blowing with the wind, he was anti-Trump when his donors wanted him to be, and now pretends to be pro-Trump to retain his audience.

                      Wow so unless you agree with Trump 100% on everything then you’re considered a fake?

                      This doesn’t sound like a healthy relationship.

                        First there was Charles, who made JimL look smart. Now there is you, who makes Charles look smart.

                        No, dumbass, the point is that someone like Shapiro changes his views like he's blowing with the wind, and therefore cannot be trusted.

                          Mainstream conservatism since Buckley, if not earlier, has all been about gatekeeping and losing gracefully, which is why they can't even conserve bathrooms, why fakes like Charlie Kirk are trying to redefine LGBT affirmation into conservatism, and why they are on track to lose the prized First and Second Amendment because of mass immigration, why California went blue and Texas is soon to follow.

                          Gen Z conservatives want to do things differently.

                            I get it, you're a hardcore Trump fan.

                              Nah. Charles is plenty smart. You're just jealous that he's a better troll than you are.
