Odd tone[edit]

This article needs a rewrite. The tone makes it sound like the Democrats and Liberal "Jews" are responsible for Neo Conservative Policy. They were not, its radical conservatism that caused this — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2620:160:EB08:0:0:0:0:C (talk) 18:32, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

the RS agree that liberal Democrats (most of them Jews) formed the neocon movement and dominated it. Rjensen (talk) 18:40, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Post-Neoconservative era[edit]

Political monitors throughout the early 21st century have been preparing for a post-Neoconservative American era.[1][2]

Inclusion of Oriana Fallaci on list of neoconservatives.[edit]

The inclusion of Oriana Fallaci on this list seems wrong to me. She was not associated closely with any of the other movement neoconservatives. During the time that the neoconservative was completely focused on the projection of American power abroad and the Iraq war she wrote mostly about domestic issues in Italy, in Italian! She properly fits into the European New Right, a group which is at odds with the Neoconservative movemnet much more than they agree with them.

I'm un-clear on the process which was used to assemble this list but I would like to start a discussion about removing Fallaci. She is deceased and can not speak for herself on this matter, so extra care devolves to the editors to not mischaracterize her. Have no doubt that for many people this is a rogues gallery, and so including people here can be seen as a risk for score settling and mischief making in character destruction and ongoing political disputes.

meta for Google[edit]

For whatever reason, when one Google's "neoconservative", the abstract that pops up under the Wikipedia link reads:

"Neoconservatism (commonly shortened to neocon) is a political movement born in the United States during the 1960s among conservative leaning Democrats who became disenchanted with the party's foreign policy."

List of neoconservatives[edit]

There are now users trying to remove people from the list on the pretext that these figures nominally disavowed neoconservatism after the unpopularity of the Iraq War. Their disavowal does not erase history, and the criteria for the list (which I did not write incidentally) is people who were neoconservative for a significant period of time. I just had to undo the Francis Fukuyama edit because -for God's sake - Fukuyama was a neocon for twenty years during the height of the movement. Let's use our heads folks.GPRamirez5 (talk) 16:05, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
