Clannish Catholics?

The Remnant's Michael Matt reports as follows:

Thanks to Fr. Z and his blog, Unite the Clans is now a hashtag, and seems to be catching on!

Posted on 26 August 2019 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

It is time to #UniteTheClans

The editor of The Remnant, my friend Michael Matt, has begun to promote something called

Unite The Clans!

What he is asking for is that Catholics who are on the traditional side of things should set aside small differences and work together – intelligently, strategically – to accomplish goals.
I have a question for Michael and "Fr. Z":

What does The Wanderer think about this??

I nearly blew my coffee thru my nostrils! Good one, Dad.

I support MM's idea of 'Unite the clans', but he should look in a mirror, himself! (as we all need to do, from time to time) He has a pretty good sized soapbox, and recently was it to bully various trads into ostracizing / isolating Louie Verrecchio.

Now if the Matt family could back together, i.e., the Remnant & the Wanderer come together for a common purpose (as you so deftly pointed out), NOW THAT REALLY WOULD BE SOMETHING NOTEWORTHY!

Oh my, Dad, that is brilliant!

Inasmuch as Ann Barnhardt has the most ruthlessly perceptive grasp of current ecclesial conditions, have to fear that might make clans united a tad uneasy. Will they appeal to her to accept a measure of unity & endorse the idea? Publish her again, as The Remnant once did? Or only embrace unity insofar as it can still ignore her prophetic voice?

I had forgotten about how The Remnant went after Louie Verrechio. People who have written for The Remnant were told that they couldn't write for Louie or they'd never work for The Remnant again.
