Buckley’s Tainted Coup

Email Print

Writes Kevin Griffin: “William F. Buckley, Jr., was a favorite among ‘liberals’ (albeit, not classical liberals) because he purged the conservative movement of their nemeses: the Original Rightists. Buckley was the prototypical Big-Government conservative, i.e., the Cold War Democrats’ Republican. His ‘New Right’ movement has since been augmented by the statist force of the neoconservatives. Thus, behold the end result of Buckley’s tainted coup: John Sidney McCain III.”
