Final Conversion

SullyWatch puts very succinctly something which should have been rather obvious but which I never saw expressed:

This just goes to show the creeping influence of Christian end-times theory on the whole of conservatism, even someone as far from its influence as Smalltown Boy. Very soon after 9/11, they seemed to think that the “conversion of the Jews” moment had arrived ... the moment when the Left saw the light and embraced their philosophies in toto, all to join together as the Children of Light.

They had always believed such a moment would come. When it did, and the leftists didn’t convert en masse, they experienced a moment of doubt. Then they lashed at the left for not doing what their theory said it would.
