Where is William F. Buckley when the world needs him? If Buckley were still here he would be livid that a GOP candidate for U.S. Senate and someone who works for U.S. Senator would attend a meeting of the John Birch Society. Yet that is exactly what Matt Bevin and someone who worked for Senator Rand Paul, at the time, did.
Buckley helped drive the Birchers, and supporters of Ayn Rand, out of the conservative movement in the 1950’s. Yet, now it is ok for someone in the GOP to go to one of their meetings? I know they were at CPAC a few years ago but to have candidates kissing up to them shows how pathetic some people have gotten.
Hopefully cooler heads will prevail in Kentucky.
