CPAC was this weekend. In case you were wondering.
And, just to prove how tirelessly they are conserving Conservatism, The Bulwark hired Leftist pro-abortion activist Molly Jong-Fast to be their reporter on the ground at CPAC.
Because when I hear “Conservatism Conserved,” I think far-Left, pro-abortion Molly Jong-Fast.
So much for “principled conservatives.”
“Just go there and be an asshole” is the business model Charlie and @BillKristol came up with after driving the @weeklystandard into the ground. They could have hired someone smart, they could have hired someone funny (lord knows they’re neither), instead they took a 3rd option. https://t.co/DO5Y5r0SN6— Derek Hunter (@derekahunter) March 1, 2019
At this point, I’m wondering how long before The Bulwark hires the Twin Trump Trolls Brian and Ed Krassenstein.

But I will say this for The Bulwark. They managed to unite both Trump-supporting and Trump-skeptical conservatives in their disgust over Jong-Fast joining that sinking ship.
Man, conservatives haven’t been this united on Twitter since the Kavanaugh confirmation!— Mollie (@MZHemingway) March 3, 2019
They literally alienate anyone who otherwise would be their actual defender and ally in this shitshow. Have fun guys. Awesome business model. I guess the goal is just harvesting clicks from Joy Reid’s audience?— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) March 2, 2019
And rather than admit it was a tremendously bad idea to utilize someone completely antithetical to conservatism to help The Bulwark “conserve” Conservatism, Bill Kristol and Charlie Sykes doubled down.
The dominant opinion on Twitter today seems to be to never read, publish, listen to, watch, or follow anyone you disagree with. Seems a healthy attitude..— Charlie Sykes (@SykesCharlie) March 2, 2019
You know, it’s one thing to read someone with whom you disagree, Charlie.
It’s another thing entirely to promote your website as conserving Conservatism while employing a writer who is antithetical to all things Conservative.
And the fact that this nonsensical douche Charlie Sykes doesn’t seem to grasp what the so-called “mission” of The Bulwark is, is … well … just a wee bit sad.
Thanks also to freelancers who’ve contributed such lively copy, from @kim_wehle to @UrbanAchievr to @CathyYoung63 to many more. And of course to @MollyJongFast for triggering so many snowflakes on the right with her mordant (and yes–gasp!–heterodox) dispatches from #CPAC2019.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) March 2, 2019
Ah, yes. The way to “conserve” Conservatism is to “trigger the snowflakes on the right.”
What an utter prat.
And by “lively,” Captain Stubing here means, “Insulting everybody we don’t like while alienating everyone who might have actually read our garbage website.”
How does this piece of writing help to conserve conservatism? So far, the answer seems to be: “Ha ha, OWNED, snowflake.” I don’t see how that differs from the Trumpism it’s meant to oppose. I don’t see how it’s an alternative. It’s just more of the same.— CPAC, wouldn’t wanna BPAC (@jtLOL) March 2, 2019

In a way, I’m enjoying watching these “True Conservatives” from the S.S. Never Trump make complete clowns of themselves.
Their hatred for the President has caused them to jettison their so-called “principles” and abandon conservatism altogether. Just how lacking in self-awareness must The Bulwark staff be that they can’t even see what they’re doing?
As Julie Kelly put it so perfectly in her latest column at American Greatness:
The reality is that anti-Trumpers such as Sykes and Kristol have devolved into the vapid, juvenile, petty bullies they claim to detest. Their coddling of leftists and progressives hostile to every conservative principle exposes their rampant hypocrisy; their arrogance is worthy of mockery.
I couldn’t say it better.
The fact is, The Bulwark is a haven for hateful trolls with more in common with the childish and laughable Krassenstein boys than any true, William F. Buckley-style Conservative.
And when their snotty website crashes into the rocks and sinks like the Titanic, don’t be surprised if I do a little happy dance.
