David Brooks, a New York Times columnist and so-called “conservative” released an article on Tuesday that’s more of an assault on grassroots conservatives than anything else. In his article he name dropped several conservative figures, who currently occupy some kind of political spotlight. Among them were people like Ted Cruz (R-TX), Newt Gingrich, Ben Carson and Rush Limbaugh.
Brooks goes on to compare modern conservatism to right-wing radicalism, hauntingly falling in line with some comments made by Obama less than a few weeks ago about how radicalism and extremism exists outside of Islam.
But is it radicalism to fight for what you believe in? This is becoming more common among a party that’s already tearing itself to pieces. The divide is between true conservatives and country club Republicans who are continually folding to the will of their liberal counterparts.
