Nothing is more tiresome than watching nostalgic baby boomers and Gen Xers cling to a country that no longer exists while relying on the bratty kids they raised to fix it. Cultural conservatism is dead, and they killed it. Lies and hypocrisy now rule the day.
There is no better example of this than conservative "titan" turned virtue signaler Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who on May 29, U-turned on his alleged Christian morality to lambast Uganda's new, albeit strict, law criminalizing homosexual acts under penalty of life imprisonment, or, in some cases, capital punishment.
"This Uganda law is horrific and wrong," Cruz claimed. "Any law criminalizing homosexuality or imposing the death penalty for 'aggravated homosexuality' is grotesque and an abomination. ALL civilized nations should join together in condemning this human rights abuse."

News flash, Teddy, aggravated homosexuality under Ugandan law is defined as "cases of sexual relations involving people infected with HIV, as well as with minors and other categories of vulnerable people." So it's executing pedophiles, rapists and attempted murderers irresponsibly spreading HIV to get their rocks off.
And since when was Ted Cruz a member of the grievance brigade of Western LGBT colonialism, where decadent first-world boomers tell mostly Christian third-world nations what to do? Does Cruz not realize Uganda is trying to eradicate HIV/AIDS after nationwide infections increased from 38,000 in 2020 to 54,000 in 2022?
Perhaps Ted's objection is less ideological and more personal. Few may know, but his daughter identifies as bisexual. That's right. Caroline Cruz "came out" on her public Tiktok in January of 2022, and she was fairly confident her father would have no issue with it. She also claimed, "A lot of people judge me based upon him at first glance, but I really disagree with most of his views."
But let's pump the brakes; the point isn't to drill Ted Cruz for failing to be present enough in his daughter's life, so much so that he allowed his daughter (knowingly or unknowingly) to have an account on a Chinese spying apparatus. Nor is it to condemn him for making his child think he would be okay with her engaging in homosexual acts. The point is much deeper. There is no hope for the conservative movement because Ted Cruz is just the tip of this bedazzled rainbow iceberg.
How many more transgenders need to appear on Fox News? How many more drag queens need to prance through the Conservative Political Action Conference? How many more build-a-babies do Dave Rubin and his "husband" have to harvest from a rent-a-womb? Maybe Ron DeSantis needs to buy more onesies for the Rubin "family" before Christians get the picture. Mainstream conservatives do not care about Christian moral values.
Conservatives support sexual liberation, as Church Militant founder Michael Voris has repeatedly stated on the Vortex. Pandora's box has been opened, and nothing but cold, hard suffering can close it. And this suffering must be so backbreaking that no person can ever hope to have time to focus on the decadence of sexual excess. That's what it took for Rome, and it won't be any different for America.
The first no-fault divorce bill was signed into law in 1969 under California Gov. Ronald Reagan (yes, that one). It now exists in all 50 states to some degree. Contraception was federally legalized in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965, resulting in the population crisis that is drying up social security today.
Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, and it legalized baby killing nationwide — until last year, when it was kicked back to the states (that are all voting to legalize it anyway). In 2015, the case of Obergefell v. Hodges made gay marriage legal on a federal level.
Where were conservatives during these moral battles? Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan were too busy arguing with Barack Obama about whether reducing the deficit and reducing the national debt were the same thing. They also allowed the president to throw taxpayer money away to bail out General Motors' bad business decisions. At least they're keeping those Chinese child laborers employed, I suppose.
Conservatism once stood for Western civilization and its philosophical underpinnings. Cue the moronic "bUt wHaT dO yOu mEaN bY wEsTeRn?" screed. It means the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle that were synthesized with Christianity by St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Thomas Aquinas — the philosophy, theology and ethics rooted foundationally in the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. That's what needs to be conserved, and it hasn't been. That time, unfortunately, has long passed.
Instead of true conservatism rooted in Christian doctrine, we now have the liberalism of 10–15 years ago masquerading as conservative politics. That means LGBs without the Ts, legal abortion with some restrictions, contraception and divorce on demand. There is no rebuilding the movement at this point, so bury it. Make its funeral a political priority. Save America.
It sounds harsh, but it's necessary. Reality will need to strike American Christians soon before they wind up on FBI watch lists like Catholics who attend Latin Mass. Because if they can't hear the clarion call of Christian nationalism blaring in their ears by now, they never will.
