National Review Comes Out “Against Trump”

National Review, the flagship conservative magazine started by conservative icon William F. Buckley, Jr, has released their latest issue of NR titled “Against Trump.” Numerous conservative leaders, columnists, and luminaries have come out against Donald Trump for the GOP nomination believing that Donald Trump is a “menace to the conservative movement,” and that the GOP primary (especially in Iowa) is a “battle for the soul of the conservative movement.”

“If Trump were to become the president, the Republican nominee, or even a failed candidate with strong conservative support, what would that say about conservatives? The movement that ground down the Soviet Union and took the shine, at least temporarily, off socialism would have fallen in behind a huckster. The movement concerned with such “permanent things” as constitutional government, marriage, and the right to life would have become a claque for a Twitter feed.”

Contributors included Glenn Beck, Brent Bozell, Mona Charen, Erick Erickson, Steven Hayward, Bill Kristol, Yuval Levin, Dana Loesch, Andrew McCarthy, Ed Meese, John Podhoretz, Cal Thomas, Thomas Sowell, and many more.
