Buckley is the biggest RINO, snob, anti-America sellout there ever has been.

You are so obviously a troll, and an unusually uninformed one that that.

First, Bill Buckley is generally known to have worked with Barry Goldwater to create the modern Conservative movement. George H. Nash, a historian of the modern American conservative movement, believed that Buckley was "arguably the most important public intellectual in the United States in the past half century... For an entire generation, he was the preeminent voice of American conservatism and its first great ecumenical figure."

Buckley's primary contribution to politics was a fusion of traditional American political conservatism with laissez-faire economic theory and anti-communism, laying groundwork for the new American conservatism of U.S. presidential candidates Barry Goldwater and President Ronald Reagan.

To show the depths of your lack of knowledge, unfortunately Mr. Buckley no longer "is" anything. He died 3 years ago.

American Conservatism has never needed creeps like Buckley.

Refusing to accept absurd lore as factual makes not a troll, but accepting it surely makes a fool.

The fight against communism was fought by Senator McCarthy, and Robert Welch. It was seriously encumbered by fools like Buckley. Its now dead thanks to his kind.
