Stix: in surrendering on the homosexualization issue, the GOP has committed suicide

Below are excerpts from Nicholas Stix’s January 2 article at Vdare. In the part that I’ve left out, Stix expands on the malign influence of Brooks, Frum, et al. in moving the GOP to the “center.”

Has the Republicans’ Capitulation on Homosexualization of the Military Guaranteed the Democrats Victory in 2012?

Is the GOP in the hands of Democratic saboteurs?

Its surrender on the homosexualization of the military was so abject that it made the French Army in 1940 look like 300 Spartans, and it squandered the advantage that Obama’s malevolent leadership had given it.

The Party put up no fight on this issue—neither on the official level, nor via its opinion columnists and talking heads. The issue is huge in its own right, as well as being tied closely to the issue of same-sex marriage. Someone who will surrender on the queering of the military is almost certain to also submit to the homosexual destruction of marriage. The homosexual talking points in both cases are identical “civil rights” tripe.

The GOP’s biggest constituency is Evangelical Christians who, though they are not at all as conservative as the MSM paints them, e.g., they are soft on immigration and race, will not yield on homosexuality. If GOP leaders and consultants are seeking to run Evangelicals out of the Party, as neocon country club Republicans Bill Kristol and David Brooks dreamed of doing at least as far back as 2000, when they began promoting John McCain as party standard-bearer, they are doing a great job of it….

A political party that would capitulate to it enemies, and brazenly betray its most loyal supporters, while supporting its own demographic destruction, is a party without a future. The GOP must do a flip-flop on homosexualization, or an Evangelical has to get the Party’s presidential nomination in 2012; otherwise, the Republican Party is finished as a national force promoting the interests of right-of-center white voters, and exists instead only as a form of organized political mischief, sabotage, and rent-seeking.

As in the Nicholas Stix article, it is always interesting to hear one state that the GOP is “finished”. But those people never say to whom it is that the voters will go. Will they instead go the libertarian route to someone like Ron Paul who wishes to legalize every evil under the sun? Or will they simply not vote at all?

LA replies:

I think the idea is not that the GOP would go out of existence, but that enough people would be disenchanted and not vote that the GOP’s ability to win elections would be lost.

John Dempsey replies:

I guess he did say in the beginning of the article that he expected that voters would stay away as they did in 2008.

LA writes:

I note that Stix uses the same phrase to describe what has happened that I have used from the start: the homosexualization of the military. Most everyone else still speaks, incorrectly, of the “repeal of DADT.”
