Oh rocky... the horror the horror

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane

Let's do the neocon dance again

...the Frankfurt School of Trotskyite German professors in the 1930s. These people had attempted get the Nazis to consider them allies in a quest for an ordered world.
The Frankfurt Schoolers wanted to ally with the Nazis? Really? That would be quite remarkable since, to a man, they were all Jewish!

Yes, quite remarkable. Harper tell me he will expand on that connention.

I think they considered themselves to be good Germans. I also think that they were emotionally vested in an species of pesudo-rationalitic form of the Enlightenment Tradition which, ironically, had blinded them to the non-rationalism of German NAZISM.

At this point, not wanting to fight wars is an act of anti-semitism.

They thought they were smarter then the Nazis I guess.
They should have known the Germans better, they were nothing if not traditional and the Nazis were already offended by all the Jewish Frankfurt inspired art and modernizing society. Which was considered gross and dirty by the way it depicted beauty and the human form.
I can only attribute their failure to thinking their pilpul is more convincing than it is.

"They despise nationalism. They despise the idea of countries. In that regard they are like all groups who aspire to globalist dominion for their particular ideas."

The European equivalents don't, I think. despise nationalism as long as it comes in a big enough wrapper. I'm still trying to get my head around this confession of faith. It's a brief clip of Guy Verhofstadt speaking at a party conference in England. He seems to be celebrating a sort of nationalism. Imperial nationalism.

They should not be driven from government.

Rather, we should look to the examples of men like Alfred Rosenberg and Julius Streicher, neither of whom, AFAIK, ever harmed a har on the head of single Untermensch, but both of whom hanged at Nuremberg.

There may be other “godfathers of neo-conservatism” that came from the Frankfurt School but I am reasonably certain Strauss was not among them. He was anti-communist and anti-liberal from the get go. IIRC one of his major criticisms of liberalism was that it was incapable of preventing the rise of Nazism.
