Every year, Conservatives™ from all over the world travel to Washington, D.C. to participate in an event called CPAC (short for Conservative™ Political Action Conference), where speakers develop and expound their political ideologies, in the wake of current events. CPAC has hosted notable speeches from Right Wing powerhouses such as Andrew Breitbart in 2012, Ann Coulter, Nigel Farage (Leader of UKIP), and less Right Wing and more of a wildcard, President Donald Trump, who really entered into political discourse at CPAC in 2013.
Now I do need to make a little side-note before we continue any further. You may have noticed the Trademark symbol next to the word "conservative," and believe me, I have a good reason for this. You see, Conservatism™ is a very specific brand of political ideology. It's not actually Conservative. At its core, it is actually Liberalism.
Conservatives™ today are yesterday's liberals. Conservatives™ fight for "freedom of speech," "freedom of the press," "individual liberties," and "freedom of conscience"; they are generally ok with letting gay people get "married" because they don't want to be called bigots; they're strong supporters of the modern state of Israel; they regard the Constitution as a "sacred text"; and voting is a "sacrament".
These, of course, are not Conservative values, in the original sense of the word. You see, the Progressive/Conservative dialectic really started at the Estates General of 1789 in France: the beginning of the French Revolution. Those on the left wing of the room wanted a constitutional monarchy and eventually the deposition of the King, those on the right wing of the room wanted to preserve France's Catholic Monarchy. So at the outset, being a "Right Winger" meant advocating for a Catholic Monarchy wherein the State is wed to the Church.... Sign me up!
But in America, our founding principles were liberal. Therefore, anyone who seeks to conserve those liberal principles are, for lack of a better word, Liberal Conservatives. I'm sure that a case could be made for calling them "Liberalists" but, ultimately, any political system where error is given license via "Freedom of Speech," is a system bound to collapse in on itself, because it has effectively rendered itself defenseless against ideological subversion.
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Ben Shapiro, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John McCain etc. are all Conservatives™. (Some in the list are also neo-Cons, but neo-Conservatism is still built on the liberal building block of American Conservatism™.)
With that understanding in mind, let's go back to CPAC 2018.
Marion Le Pen, the youngest MP in modern history, niece of Marine Le Pen, granddaughter of Jean Marie Le Pen, and executive board member of the National Front (a French political party) didn't just make waves for being the most beautiful conservative woman in the room,she absolutely decimated the boundaries between Conservatives™ and real Right-Wing'ers.
She starts off her speech with the most disingenuous "hello fellow Conservatives™" that I've ever heard in my life, and proceeds to woo her American audience with talk of the American Revolution, and all the typical "freedom speak." Now here is where I want to begin making distinctions. The Le Pen family is Catholic. Catholics understand the difference between freedom and license. When young Miss Le Pen speaks of "Freedom of Speech" and "Liberty of Conscience", these are decidedly Catholic values. Not the same Freedom of Speech, which is really license, that allows people to blaspheme and spread false doctrines and errors, but a freedom of Truth. Freedom for what is Good and Right. Since American conservatives really have never thought about these "catch phrases" from a Catholic perspective, they eat it up, and Marion Le Pen succeeds in camouflaging herself as a Conservative™.
As she continues her speech, she drops some serious truth bombs:
"Without nation, and without family the limits of the common good, natural law, and collective morality disappears, as the reign of egoism continues.
"France is in process of passing from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to the little niece of Islam, the terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg ...
"Today even children have now become merchandise . . . we hear now in the public debate: “We have the right to order children in a catalogue, we have the right to rent a woman’s womb, we have the right to deprive a child of a mother or father.” No you don’t. A child is not a right. Is this the freedom we want? No, we don’t want an atomized world, of individualism, without gender, without father, without mother, and without nation."
I almost got misty-eyed when I saw this speech for the first time, but for all of the truth in her speech, for all of her passion, this speech has gone almost completely un-noticed by Conservatives™ and Traditionalists alike. As a matter of fact, it seems like the only people who were paying attention were our enemies (the Left-Wing, Lying Press):
And, of course, all of the above have the "obligatory" paragraph about how the Le Pen family is a bigoted, xenophobic, homophobic, RACIST, ANTI-SEMITIC group of "Far-Right" haters!
If there's one thing I've learned in all my research, there is no such thing as being "too Far-Right."
Please watch Marion Le Pen's speech below, and make sure you have a box of Kleenex near you. The real fight for Christendom hasn't even begun yet.
