Why the alt-right is gaining power


The elite establishment gets more and more panicky as The Donald™ continues to probe and hammer their weakness. This fundamental weakness would be that a government that rules in a Democracy is supposed to be from and for the people. But no government that has ever ruled anywhere has been selfless in that regard.

So Donald Trump asks why in the heck we aren’t securing the borders. He asks why we steadily bring people in to replace Americans while our workforce participation rate is worthy of The Great Depression? The elite don’t feel like answering those questions and attempt to slam shut the Overton Window before such queries get echo by much of the population at large. They are failing, they are sounding increasingly shrill. I grow more confident as they grow more desperate.

It started with everyone just laughing away at Trump’s announcement for President. It was my opinion at the time that this was a stupid strategy. PJ O’Rourke gave Trump everything he could want or need. He argued Trump’s campaign was a referendum on just what vile slut-piggies all us dumb Amerikans truly were.

Besides, I, personally, support his candidacy. “Democracy,” said H. L. Mencken, “is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” The American government is of the people, by the people, for the people. And, these days, America is peopled by 320 million Donald Trumps. Donald Trump is representative of all that we hold dear: money. Or, rather, he is representative of greed for money. We common people may not be able to match Trump’s piggy bank, but we can match his piggishness.

Well, that didn’t work. People probably don’t care much for Donald Trump. I don’t and never will. I don’t like a good number of human beings. I will hire and pay them if they offer me a useful service. Like has very little to do with who should be POTUS. Trump is saying what isn’t allowed to be said and that, right now, in the grips of vile Orwell State; is a service of very high value.

So they couldn’t laugh Trump off the stage because he was too bellicose. At that point, calling us all porcine did nothing to end the stream of “vile hate-truths.” So then we heard about how Donald Trump was a Hitler-wannabe. John Kasich provided us this public disservice. Politico dutifully carried Kasich’s water below.

Kasich’s presidential campaign began airing a new TV ad last week that paraphrased language from Martin Niemöller’s famous poem “First they Came…” and alluded to a comparison between Trump and Adolf Hitler. The governor backed away from that comparison Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” but didn’t hesitate to attack Trump’s bombastic language.

So then they had to break out the equivalent of Lyndon Baines Johnson’s infamous Daisy Ad. Trump, you see, equals ISIS. At some point you wonder. Why are all these arguments against what Trump spouts off with reflexive name-calling?

I don’t really think Trump is a particularly perspicacious intellect. They great Francis Fukuyama and the coruscating brilliance of John F. Kerry should put paid to all of the silly foolishness being spewed from beneath the bad comb over. It’s the perfect set-up to slap all those silly, little people down and remind them of their place. But no, all we get are a bunch of pompous insiders, flaccid from the K-Street Circle Jerk, essentially calling The Donald a big, blue meanie.

I mean Senator Elizabeth Warren pitched her tee-pee at Jolly Auld Harvard! And Jeb Bush is from American Royalty – a dynasty previously only rivaled by the Kennedy Syndicate. And, Hillary!? I could have sworn the earth shook near Mt. Doom as the American Heartland fell ‘neath the baleful glare of the lidless eye on the day Her Majesty announced her candidacy. But none of these people have debunked, disheartened or unhorsed The Emperor of ALL THINGS TRUMP. They can’t. He has a point.

So what is good is this? Trump is a buffoon. His Presidency would rival a 3-stooges episode. The reasons for confidence lie in Trump’s total ingenuous incompetence. If these guys can’t beat him, just wait until they deal with somebody trained in the dark arts of political rhetoric and machination. They are weak, they are beatable. Losing to Ronald Reagan or William F. Buckley can be explained. Losing to the Donald? The suits are emptier this year than in many seasons past. It’s arguable whether the emperor even still has a suit on. The Cathedral can be sacked. America is not over and we can reverse this decline. Just be brave and tell it like it is. How long? Not long. The delusion that multicultural pluralism can maintain a great nation is rapidly wearing thin.

    The Trump has what none of his detractors have. He has no wants, no needs, no lacks, no desires. He has more than enough of everything. So what is his game?

    He is playing.
    Play, play, play.

    Take a hint, America: school’s out. Have fun. It’s playtime!

    I’m honestly amazed at how quickly things are changing, both here and in Europe. Definitely a time to be alive.

    This is Enoch Powell territory.Think of him,rhetoric and machination.He was a fantastic orator,one of the best that England ever produced but he wasn’t so naive as Trump is being,the man has no finesse and I have my doubts he can do what he purports to want to do.

    • crow says:

      He’s already done it. Achieved the impossible. Now the people can take the ball and run with it, or go back to doing what they’ve always done. Either way, the slavemasters have been exposed for what they are, and their gullible supporters, too.

    • Chris says:

      Enoch Powell did a great mistake by having his speech at a bad time.
      He should have done it before an election.

    So the question is: just how much power does the media have over people’s souls?

    For a long time I’ve pretty much taken for granted that the media simply would not ALLOW any vaguely right wing views to get a fair hearing. The usual hysterics coming from people for whom sarcastic mockery is second nature. Of course, we’re already seeing that with Trump:


    But I do agree it is very heartening to see that despite this there are still SOME people who are not afraid to support ideas that, while socially unfashionable, they nonetheless instinctively KNOW are the correct solutions to the problems at hand. How they will vote on the day will be the real indicator of where things may be going. But, like you say, with a few more serious, articulate leaders then we may actually be seeing the start of….hope.

    The Front Nationale got more votes than any party in the first round of elections and are expecting to do well in the second. I’d long believed that the zombie poplulace were becoming MORE liberal, with the relentless propaganda finding fertile soil in their barren souls. I’d taken for granted that any traditionalist ideas would never be voted for, so could never be introduced without first subverting/agitating democracy.

    But if the recent trends are really the start of a wider current forming then this is truly great news. Though I now suspect our governments’ next move will be introducing new laws making criticism of the liberal religion illegal. I believe they could just about get those laws through without too much opposition today, especially in the EU. David Cameron has already ominously said:

    “For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach”

    Even if we obey the law we could still be a target. By that point, we can forget about a democratic introduction of alt-right methods. So it all comes down to how quick people are starting to drift to the right. And then it comes down to how much power the media has to warp their instinctive beliefs.

    And what WE can do to aid the former.
