Clip #1 (of 2) for today: VDH on what we need from conservatives

Victor Davis Hanson from late last year:

What I think the great worry right now is in the [conservative movement] is that there’s a group of people – I see them [where I work] – I won’t mention their names – but they’re in the Washington-N.Y. corridor – and there’s sort of an idea that conservatism / Republicanism is a social milieu – and that you will be liked by the left to the degree to which you pull your punches, you sort of go through the motions – and it’s been very destructive for the country…

I think what we really need now is to say, “I’m not going to be quiet. This is what I think, and you can call me every damned word in the book and it [has] absolutely no effect on me.”
