MITT ROMNEY, "CONSCIOUS" CUCKSERVATIVE by GREGORY HOOD

Mitt Romney, "Conscious" Cuckservative
His eyes were misted with tears, but his jaw was set in resolute determination. There was a hint of tension in the facial muscles as he steeled himself to his duty. He stared into the eyes of his interlocutor, a former AIPAC employee and therefore a trusted moral authority. Resisting the quiver that threatened to creep into his voice, Mitt Romney boldly staked his claim as the conscience of a generation with words that will echo through the eons – “I don’t want to see trickle down racism.”
Even when trying to bare his soul, Romney can’t help but deploy a line obviously slapped together at a meeting of unemployed political consultants. And even this clumsy and lame formulation reveals the deep inner sickness. “Trickle-down economics” was the leftist smear term for Ronald Reagan’s “supply side” policies, whereby tax cuts for the rich would ultimately benefit the poor through economic growth. Here, Romney casually co-opts the leftist insult directed against the unquestioned deity of the GOP and recycles it against the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. He can’t even come up with his own political attack lines.
It’s not surprising, as Mitt Romney outsources both the jobs of his employees and his deepest sources of his own morality. "Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation, and trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, and trickle-down misogyny - all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America," Romney intoned. Of course, to those in control of the media and academia who actually get to determine who is a “racist,” “bigot,” or “misogynist,” Romney is already an example of all three of these categories. And his statement begs not just one, but several questions. What is the “nature of our nation?” And do we have a “heart” and “character?”
If the nation is the people who created the state and its institutions, America was founded by men who were racists, bigots, and misogynists by today’s standards. They built a herrenvolk Republic designed for “ourselves and our posterity.”
The “American Idea” cited by the likes of Romney, Paul Ryan, and other cuckservatives is a kind of heresy derived from the actual beliefs of the Founding Fathers. They take the universalist and egalitarian ideas inherent in the Revolution and completely remove them from the context understood by the likes of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams.
