Coming as a surprise to some, George Allen announced that he will seek his old job – U.S. Senator of Virginia – running against Jim Webb if he wins the GOP primary.
While some paleoconservatives, angry over the neocon nation building in the Middle East, supported Jim Webb in 2006, I suspect that many will be reluctant to do so this time. As James W. Antle III has pointed out, Jim Webb has been a big disappointment.
Webb idly has sat by for the past couple years while Obama increased Bush’s military budget and expanded the “war on terror” (i.e. interventionism and billions of dollars in nation building) in the Middle East.
And while Webb has criticized affirmative action and discrimination against European Americans, his very actions belie such criticism. On immigration, he has been abysmal, and it’s often continued Third World immigration that provides non-whites the alleged justification they need for continued affirmative action programs – not to mention the fact that immigration drives down American wages as well as causing many other problems (crime, ethnic divisiveness, etc.). Does Webb not “get it”? Apparently not, as he recently voted for the DREAM Act, which would have potentially amnestied anyone under the age of 35, creating an even greater demand for non-white racial quotas.
It’s becoming clear that Webb is not on “our side.” Were I in Virginia, I’d vote for Allen, who is not without flaws (most notably, his support of neocon foreign policy) but in many respects is superior to Webb. At least Allen would not have voted for the DREAM Act.
