Honestly, I don't even know why they bother pretending anymore. NatCon-ism is not only hostile to Heritage's old mission of fact-finding, analysis, and policy recommendation; it's hostile to the very idea of intellectual inquiry, to science, to scholarship, and even to policy. Anyone who engages in these activities is suspect. That today's movement consists largely of Ivy Leaguers and elitists claiming to hate their own credentials isn't a display of hypocrisy, it's a display of tribal loyalty. TFG may have accelerated the process, but this was always the destination.
