|Hunter as Radio personality The Southern Avenger|
Hunter has become a pathetic figure. He used to be on the radio in Charleston SC as "THE SOUTHERN AVENGER." He got pickled up as a blogger on alternative right websites and eventually became some sort of media hack for Rand Paul. Hunter was a young man on the rise.
When the purity of mind police outed him as having shared doubts about the absolute sanctity of all things multicultural-multiracial, he fell as a shooting star from the Republican heavens. He had to resign from the Paul team, and he has been confessing his sins ever since. This makes him a perfect fit for The American (post) Conservative. They deserve each other.
He may beg for a new beginning, but it will never come. The left will always see him as the Southern Avenger. He will never be acceptable to the cultural marxists who control the media, or the academy, or the professions. He is a man without an allegiance to betray anymore. As a media hack I can't imagine how he might not know this.
So here is what the thought police at TAC not only refused to post, but deleted altogether.
“I thought it was a badge of honor, that this was my role. I believed part of being a conservative was simply to ignore minority criticism, or perhaps to point to other minorities who agreed with me. Over the years, I’ve changed my mind significantly.”Jack, you “Changed your mind,” when it tripped up your career. You found that to be a Republican writer-campaign operative, you needed to write cringing mea culpas like this. You are not the first operative to find himself an embarrassment to his patron.
News flash, having been the Southern Avenger, you will never be accepted in polite hive-mind society. So stop confessing for previous truth telling. It’s awkward for readers and shameful to yourself.
We are much better off without him. Taking the part of the historic American nation requires spine. He and the likes of Rod Dreher can always find a home at TAC's precious, small, sideshow.
