Q&A Friday #3: Favorite Conservative Fictional Character?
Question: “Do you have any favorite, fictional characters that you believe to be conservative?” — CloaknBlade
Answer: This is a tough question to answer because my favorite fictional character is Conan and it is of course a bit difficult to figure out which way he’d go on partial birth abortion and free trade. On the other hand, given this quote from the movie, you could at least be sure he’d believe in a strong national defense…
Q: Conan, what is best in life?
A: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women.
Those are not the words of a man who would ask permission from the UN to defend America. On the other hand, he made his living as a mercenary, pirate, & thief, which would probably turn off the swing vote.
PS: Although I was a huge fan of the first “Conan the Barbarian” movie and liked the 2nd one as well, I’m more of a fan of the books than the movies. I’ve read 30+ Conan books and have enjoyed the majority of them, even though many of the books have different authors. First and foremost, I’d recommend the books written by Robert Howard (W/ or without co-authors), but anything by L. Sprague DeCamp or Robert Jordan is guaranteed to be a good read as well.
