—Mike Bloomberg is not funny.

—The only thing Joe Biden seems to remember from his “Catholic school upbringing” is that he should be polite and keep to the time prescribed during debates.

—Bernie Sanders can make Pete Buttigieg sound like Ronald Reagan when it comes to Cold War issues.

—For a party that should be trying to steal white, working-class voters from Donald Trump, all the Democratic candidates talk about are the problems of poor black people and poor Latinos… as if there are no struggling white people in America.

—The fact that Mike Bloomberg might have told a woman to “kill” her baby when she became pregnant isn’t quite enough to shock a quiet Democratic debate audience.

—It was cute that they actually let Tom Steyer talk sometimes.

—Man, they are old and white, and if this were the Republican field, the media would be doing two stories a day on their lack of diversity.

The Imaginative Conservative applies the principle of appreciation to the discussion of culture and politics—we approach dialogue with magnanimity rather than with mere civility. Will you help us remain a refreshing oasis in the increasingly contentious arena of modern discourse? Please consider donating now.

We hope you will join us in The Imaginative Conservative community. The Imaginative Conservative is an online journal for those who seek the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. We address culture, liberal learning, politics, political economy, literature, the arts and the American Republic in the tradition of Russell Kirk, T.S. Eliot, Edmund Burke, Irving Babbitt, Wilhelm Roepke, Robert Nisbet, Richard Weaver, M.E. Bradford, Eric Voegelin, Christopher Dawson, Paul Elmer More, and other leaders of Imaginative Conservatism. Some conservatives may look at the state of Western culture and the American Republic and see a huge dark cloud which seems ready to unleash a storm that may well wash away what we most treasure of our inherited ways. Others focus on the silver lining which may be found in the next generation of traditional conservatives who have been inspired by Dr. Kirk and his like. We hope that The Imaginative Conservative answers T.S. Eliot’s call to “redeem the time, redeem the dream.” The Imaginative Conservative offers to our families, our communities, and the Republic, a conservatism of hope, grace, charity, gratitude, and prayer.
