Many prominent conservatives praise the founding fathers, but wouldn’t run any of the risks the founders did or actually take action to promote the founders’ cause. From Jack Kerwick at lewrockwell.com:
There are two features of Big Conservatism media (the Big Con) that figure prominently and unmistakably.
First, conservative talking heads are forever paying lip service to America’s Founding Fathers and, thus, the revolutionary spirit of liberty that motivated the latter.
Second, these same conservative talking heads never do anything but talk about the legions of abuses that are daily heaped upon contemporary Americans generally and, specifically, Trump-supporting conservative Americans.
More exactly, and what’s even worse, Big Conservative media personalities do little to nothing more than whine about their enemies’ refusal to fight fairly by refusing to holding themselves accountable for not liking conservatives!
It is worth bearing in mind that whenever some talk-radio or Fox News host prattles on about the “double standards” of “the mainstream media,” all that they are doing is complaining that left-wing Democrats in the media are unwilling to treat other left-wing Democrats as the Big Con would like for them to treat them.
