What is a neoconservative?
    #1828270 - 08/19/03 12:52 AM (18 years, 3 months ago)

I keep seeing that label tossed around (here and other places), but I'm not really sure that anyone really agrees on a definintion. So what exactly is a neoconservative?

I'm especially looking for Malachi to answer this as he has called every right leaning person on this board a neoconservative.

Just another term for asshole.

Oh, Malachi doesn't know what he's 'talking' about.

I know, but I think his response will give me a good laugh.

The term 'neo-con' originally mean an ex-leftist, mostly those disillusioned by the American's left's support for the soviet union.

Recently it has been bandied about as a catch-all for pro-war conservative, especially Jewish ones.

Here is a good article on the subject: http://www.nationalreview.com/goldberg/goldberg052103.asp

Here's another great one from 3 years ago, before most people had ever heard the term: http://www.nationalreview.com/goldberg/goldberg061600.html

yeah, it's basically just a dirty word (like con isn't...) but I like the reactionary connotation.

unclean people, one and all. :wink:
