Rod Dreher’s Crack-Up

Rod Dreher’s histrionic response to Buchanan’s latest column is quite stunning in his misinterpretation of Buchanan’s rhetorical intentions. It is refreshing to see the number of comments to Dreher’s piece saying as much.

What this episode conveys to me is the emotional breakdown that ensues when a starry-eyed Christian humanist begins to realize the flaws of an idealized ‘civic nationalism’, how it conflicts with newly formulated, non-egalitarian beliefs he is beginning to simultaneously (and subconsciously) hold.
