Paul Gottfried on Paleoconservatism

This appeared recently at It is a transcript of the speech Paul Gottfried gave at this year’s HL Mencken Club.

See my comment in the thread. He’s not really wrong, he’s just being unnecessarily, IMO, cryptic, and thus confusing. He has covered this ground before.

See here.

And here.

From what I know, his beef here is with the Academy of Philosophy and Letters, the National Humanities Institute and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. I know he had a falling out with Chronicles for some reason, but that’s not who is being discussed here, so I’m not sure why he mentioned Rockford, IL.
