Vulgar thought.

I'll be unembarrassedly old-fashioned here: It is profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear an American president proclaim "America First."
~ Bill Kristol.[1]

America First. What a ridiculous idea.

A moment of surprising candor from a cuckservative. Just what we Tea Partiers and Trumpeteers gradually began to suspect.

The American elite, whether "right" or left care nothing for the interests of this nation and have been happy to have our economy trashed and culture destroyed in the name of a fatuous "globalism" and open borders. They were willing to lie and dissemble until Trump tossed his hat in the ring.

Now it's right out there for all to see.

Modernity and prosperity have been the spawning ground for profound stupidity in every aspect of public and private life.

It took years to get over being called a fascist.

It took just months to get over being called a cuckservative.

PS: "America First" is tainted for the same reason "Great Society" is tainted.

I'm not sure I follow you. Great Society was a liberal fantasy premised on showering blacks with welfare and legal privilege. America First expresses a determination to reverse over half a century of wasting our blood and treasure on foreigners. If you were to compare America Last and the Great Society, I could see how they would both be tainted.
