For all Trump’s continual appeal to the buried racial instincts of despondent white Americans, he is still a civic and economic nationalist, and his centrist positions simply don’t warrant the outpouring of frankly insane rhetoric from all the bile-secreting organs. Trump has his own political correctness, whereby he places Negroes in his campaign adverts front and center when they align with his causes. He treads extremely carefully around language that could be construed as racially charged or insulting. His focus is on the rule of law and prosperity. So while UKIP and Front National could plausibly be described as inheriting BNP or anti-Semitic votes, the frothing psychopathy and “Nazi” slurs thrown at Trump don’t hold up and are purely emotional.
Indeed. Trump’s actual campaign, his actual policy positions, by no means rate the sort of “frothing psychopathy” spewed in his direction, a level of attack I’ve never before observed in decades of following American politics. Even Trump’s most “extreme” positions are actually quite restrained and reasonable, and would not be out-of-place in the mainstream political discourse of not so long ago. First, Trump campaigns against people entering the USA illegally (who are, after all, violating immigration law), he wants to prevent further illegal immigration, and he does not want to reward (at least directly) those who are already here illegally. Second, in light of terrorism threats, he calls for a temporary – repeat, temporary – hiatus in further Muslim immigration to the USA. That’s it. And all other issues, he’s a moderate, a centrist, in some cases liberal enough so that his positions do not markedly differ from that of liberal Jewish icon Bernie Sanders. Far from being a “racist,” Trump eagerly embraces the Negro and supports anti-White affirmative action programs. Therefore, we ask: why all the hysteria from the mainstream and from the Left (which are, in truth, one and the same)?
