Austin Ruse: Robert George Says Believe James Martin

This is how academics usually roll: operators posing as moderates who are of the center.

The day of the Catholic academic taking for granted a role as a member of the Catholic intellectual leadership is coming to an end.

Is there any "New Natural Lawyer" who isn't a liberal and a civic nationalist, and thus a useful idiot for the state?

It should not be necessary to say this, but even Roman Catholics can be cuckservatives.

Latin Catholics Fighting Against Nature

Embracing some version of civic nationalism (even if it is their dream of a religious version), and thus unknowingly embracing statism.

May God Save Texas!

Homesick in America by Wayne Allensworth

The last time we had been in Houston, arranging for the move, we talked to a little Indian man who was working at a truck-rental outlet. He said he had previously worked as a welfare inspector, so I asked what he had inspected, and he told us: He was supposed to investigate Medicaid and food-stamp fraud.

I nodded at him. Is that so?

Yes, it’s so—as a matter of fact, that’s all there was. Fraud, he meant. His supervisor told him he was investigating far too much. He was told not to look so closely. As a matter of plain fact, he was told, don’t really look at all. Since he was an honest man, he quit. And he landed at the truck-rental place, where he said another guy who worked there—a young guy, also from India, according to the little man—only wanted to work so many hours a week, not too much.

Is that so?

It’s so—it’s because he wants to keep up his qualification for food stamps. The little man nodded knowingly, raised his eyebrows, and said, “And you know who is paying for that, yes?” and we both said, yes, we know. And he nodded knowingly again. I heard a police siren in the distance.

As we walked out, without feeling any personal hostility for that particular little Indian man, I thought that, as praiseworthy as his attitude was, an American could be holding down the job he had. According to “conservatives” of a certain persuasion, he’s probably a better “American” than a lot of real Americans, since he’s “hard working” (he will work for less), and he’s for “welfare reform,” and, anyway, he’s not white, so there, we “true conservatives” are not “racists,” which is the worst thing anyone can be or be accused of, which is the same thing.
