The Young and the Right-Wing

Yesterday, I wrote a long (for a blog post at least) look at the 1960s youth movement in conservative politics. A new American Spectator article looks at today’s young and the right wing.

(Via Clay Whittaker.)

The Spectator piece contains this great paragraph:

I know a little bit about the young conservative crowd. Some prefer a fogeyish, counter-countercultural image, donning blue blazers with brass buttons and other formal attire appropriate for standing athwart history at any age. These are the kinds of people who sign their names with initials and Roman numerals.

Wow, wearing a blue blazer is counter-countercultural? Who knew I was so subversive!
