If there is any valid critique of Dreher’s “crunchy cons,” surely it is their predilection to easy distraction. They, by and large, still want to be nice. Where are the crunchy bare knucklers, or better yet, brass knucklers? Where are the stem-winders and latter-day Elijahs set to call down fire upon the prophets of the liberal order? Where are the anarchists and wild-eyed populists infused with righteous rage who will say not just “no” but “Hell No!” to the Linker/Gallagher bargain? ~Fr. Jape
It is encouraging to see that Fr. Jape can bestir himself to send a carrier pigeon from the grave when the occasion requires it. I think I know where we can find some populists, or at least some inspiration for those populists, but what about the anarchists? Any wild-eyed anarchists out there?
