    Fighting $#@! Tyranny: A Choice

    Viktor Orban provides a good model for resistance.

    Fighting $#@! Tyranny: A Choice

    Arizona Republican lawmakers are finally pushing back on drag and trans stuff....

    Well, drag brunches aren't to my taste, but I don't see that it's the state's business to regulate them. But stopping this crap directed at colonizing the minds of kids? Absolutely. No mercy, and no apology.

    The gay conservative Chad Felix Greene speaks for me:

    ...The media and the Washington establishment (including ostensible conservative institutions and figures) love to portray Hungary as some kind of fascist state. In fact, the country feels like America circa 1998. Budapest is a liberal city, by Hungarian standards, and usually votes against the ruling party of PM Viktor Orban. Yet it's easy to see gay people out publicly, and though they cannot get married, gays can form legal partnerships under Hungarian law. An English expat living in Budapest told me that his friends back home in the UK ask him, in all seriousness, if he fears for his safety on the streets here. He laughs at that, because the question is absurd. Budapest doesn't even have a crime problem. It's a safe, orderly, civilized city. In fact, though many Central European elites are desperate to ape Western European and American progressives, the fact that Central European countries are so appealing has to do with the fact that most of the people there have not been awokened -- yet...

    It is becoming crystal-clear that we are either going to have Viktor Orban (meaning his style of defending the family and common sense), or we are going to have C.A. Conrad blowing his "$#@! bubbles" in the faces of children forever. There is no middle ground.
    To be conservative, then, is to prefer the familiar to the unknown, to prefer the tried to the untried, fact to mystery, the actual to the possible, the limited to the unbounded, the near to the distant, the sufficient to the superabundant, the convenient to the perfect, present laughter to utopian bliss. ― Michael Joseph Oakeshott, Rationalism in Politics and Other Essays
