They know their movement is a force to be reckoned with in the Reagan camp. But their ideological inflexibility just doesn’t fit in comfortably with the divergent elements of a broader governing coalition that also includes the pragmatists and compromisers of the corporate establishment and the Republican Party. The very qualities of zealous single-mindedness and extremist purism that energize the movement seem to place it out of sync with its more mainstream surroundings. But the problem is deeper than that. No one at the conference faces it squarely. It’s the mirror-image of the evil they attribute to the liberals, the social democrats, the peace movement that is, of supposedly being soft on communism. The New Rightists, while proclaiming their devotion to an undefined “freedom,” have a definite air of being soft on fascism. They urge a doctrine of sticking with our “friends” among the “free people,” but under their rule, how many friends would we have, and who would they be? The New Right seems essentially isolationist with respect to the Western European democracies there is almost no discussion of Europe at the conference, no sense of what is needed to keep the alliance knit together. Instead, their energy is directed toward closer alignment to Latin American military dictatorships and the white supremacists of South Africa. Is this only a tactical necessity of the anti-communist struggle, i.e., the enemy of my enemy is my friend, or does it reveal a different truth? At the conference, nobody asks, and nobody answers, except with evasive condemnations of liberal hypocrisy and praise for military professionalism. If the new Rightists really make good on their intention to get control of the institutions of American government, would open politics continue, or would they use their power to try to put their progressive opponents and critics out of business once and for all, in the name of a mandate from the Lord to save America? Their at best thinly disguised contempt for anyone with a different view is not reassuring. Back to the outside world again.
