George F. Will, for many people, has long been a conservative’s conservative. The very model of a conservative. Today, however, many people don’t think of him as a conservative at all. Sean Hannity, Steve Bannon, or Donald Trump, yes. George Will, no.

Jay takes up this strange question with his guest. In addition to “conservative,” Jay asks Will about some other words and phrases, including “America First” and “deep state.” They further talk about the Confederacy and its monuments. And North Korea. And Afghanistan. And, to close, baseball.

A traversal of some key questions with that exemplary conservative, George F. Will.

    George F Will is a gentleman and a man of tremendous dignity and intelligence. The likes of Trump, Bannon, and Sean Hannity can only aspire to but never achieve any of those plaudits. When Trump’s presidency is over it is unlikely that anyone will talk of him as a conservative, but George Will will always be seen as a conservative by those who understand conservativitism and adhere to it. I am and never have been a baseball fan, but listening to George Will talk about it somehow makes it seem very appealing, a sort of throwback to my youth in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

    Globalists subordinate the interests of their country to foreign powers openly. The opposite of that is America First, since they do so in secret.
