Senator Rand Paul responded to news of neocon propaganda rag The Weekly Standard closing its doors by saying "good riddance."
"Good riddance to the fake conservatives and warmongers," Paul tweeted Tuesday, linking to an article from American Greatness by Chris Buskirk titled, "Death of The Weekly Standard Signals Rebirth of the Right."
Here's an excerpt:
Neoconservatism is dead, long live American conservatism. That’s what I thought when I learned The Weekly Standard would be shuttered by longtime owner Clarity Media. The Standard was a creature of a particular time and place—the 1990s, the Bush-Clinton ascendancy, and Washington, D.C.’s insular, self-referential political class. As such, it never really fit within the broad flow of historic American conservatism. It was always, and intentionally, something different. So perhaps the magazine’s opposition to Donald Trump, his voters, and the America First agenda should come as no surprise.The new neocon movement is Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson and the rest of the "Intellectual Dark Web," all of whom the establishment is trying desperately to shove down our throats.
One of The Weekly Standard's last editorial board pieces was attacking Rand Paul for blocking a bill to give a record $38 billion in military aid to Israel and another bill which seeks to make it illegal to boycott the state of Israel.
The editors wrote:
Kentucky senator Rand Paul is a grandstanding obstructionist whose chief joy seems to be blocking the few bills on which there is wide agreement. That includes at least two bills intended to benefit the state of Israel. One, introduced by Florida’s Marco Rubio and Delaware’s Chris Coons, would authorize $38 billion in security aid to Israel over the next decade. The bill is the outcome of a deal negotiated under President Barack Obama and epitomizes bipartisanship in a divided Congress with 72 co-sponsors. Israel advocates have flooded Paul’s office with calls and emails since he placed the hold in October.For some reason, their "conservative principles" are for giving out billions in foreign aid while the US is trillions in debt and for making it illegal to boycott a foreign country in direct opposition to the First Amendment (even the ADL secretly admitted the anti-BDS bill is blatantly unconstitutional).
It sure is interesting how these "principles" are applied!
