This Must Be Stopped: Neocons Want To Co-Opt the Term 'Classical Liberal"

Neocon warmonger Max Boot
Neocon warmonger Max Boot wrote this in a Washington Post Sunday op-ed:
In the past I would have been indignant at such attacks and eager to assert my conservative credentials. I spent years writing for conservative publications such as the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Commentary magazine and working as a foreign policy adviser for three Republican presidential campaigns. Being conservative used to be central to my identity. But now, frankly, I don’t give a damn. I prefer to think of myself as a classical liberal, because “conservative” has become practically synonymous with “Trump lackey.”
The neocons have been retweeting this Max Boot line:
 I prefer to think of myself as a classical liberal, because “conservative” has become practically synonymous with “Trump lackey.”
Yet, again libertarians and classical liberals are being outflanked because they are failing to aggressively attack the dumb socialist Trump. What do they see in this guy?

Yes, classical liberals should be against Trump. But the phony neocons, who will attempt to catch any wave if they think they can distort it, as classical liberals is disgusting.

The great historian Ralph Raico (1936-2016) in 2006 for the American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia explained what a classical liberal was:
"Classical liberalism" is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade.
Got that Max? International peace based on free trade. Not your warmongering ways.

Stay the fuck away.

  1. I see from Jeff Deist at the Mises Institute that Jennifer Rubin is a Classical Liberal now too. His quote of hers is like what Max Boot's is.
    So another word or phrase that loses it's meaning? As Jeff said, at least they are not calling themselves Libertarians, but this is crap too.
    Max Boot is Nock? Rubin is Mencken?
    These Neo-Cons are not the Old Right, who were Anti-War/Anti-State.
    Why can't they just call themselves Trotskyites? I don't think any of us would have a problem with that, and they would be honoring their hero Irving Kristol at the same time!
    I am pretty sure, in Rothbard's "Do you Hate the State", these Jackholes aren't the ones he said we could work with.
