Hunter Wallace has declared war on President Trump. He’s not the only one, of course, but he’s by far the most articulate.
That “most articulate” (by far!) declaration of war by Wallace is simply his reposting of someone else’s tweets. Laughable. This demonstrates why Johnson has to rank among the most fundamentally dishonest people in the Far Right today. He only addresses the low hanging fruit, and ignores real and legitimate criticism.
Johnson’s dishonesty is on display by comparing the following two paragraphs.
Trump’s America First, National Populist stances on immigration, globalization, and foreign policy resonated with millions of Americans: Republicans, independents, and even Democrats. Enough to win him the nomination and the Presidency.
But, as I never tire of pointing out, Trump did not have to take these positions to win. The whole system is premised on not giving the people what they want. Trump could have played by the system’s rules. Trump could have xeroxed the Jeb! platform and still won, based simply on his celebrity, money, and personality. In fact, it would have been easier for Trump to win that way, because by running a National Populist campaign, he had to fight a two-front war against Hillary Clinton and the Republican Party/Conservative Inc. establishment.
So, on the one hand, Trump’s campaign resonated because of his right-wing populism; on the other hand, he could have won simply by being Jeb II with a bigger personality. Johnson has to pull this sleight-of-hand nonsense because he needs to defend his own naive and simpleton-like belief – put in writing years ago and criticized here – that Trump was “sincere.” You see, the “proof” that Trump was “sincere” is that he ran a right-wing populist campaign even though he could have won by being a vulgar and ignorant version of Jeb Bush. Even though that “Trump’s America First, National Populist stances on immigration, globalization, and foreign policy resonated…Enough to win him the nomination and the Presidency.” The reality of course is that Trump’s personality and personal history was actually an impediment for certain important sections of the Republican electorate, who overlooked these flaws because of the promise of Trump’s right-wing populism.
Johnson keeps on peddling the same stupidity that I’ve refuted here time and again. Particularly the idea that Trump could have won on a Jeb Bush platform is so outrageous, it must win an all-time award for Imperial Gaslighting.
See this, emphasis added:
Johnson doesn’t believe Trump was a fraud from the beginning; after all, that would prove Sallis right and Johnson wrong, and we can’t have that. Johnson promotes the lie that Trump could have “cloned Jeb Bush’s platform” and still have won because of his “personality”- can you believe this? In reality, Trump’s campaign took off only after he started talking about Mexican rapists and started attacking the Bush family and their policies.
What’s laughable is that right after Johnson makes his gaslighting comment, they all admit that people voted for Trump precisely because of his strong talk about immigration (these guys can’t get their stories straight from minute to minute.) – yes, that’s the point. It was NOT Trump’s personality, which was actually a turn-off for many people who voted for him. Does anyone believe that Republican voters, including evangelicals, would support a twice-divorced and thrice-married vulgar New York real estate tycoon and reality TV star who talks about his “big hands” and “grabbing pussies” IF this buffoon was merely a neoconservative clone of Jeb Bush? Does any sane person believe that the enthusiasm that carried Trump to the nomination and then to the Presidency was based on his obnoxious jackass personality, independent of a hardline position on immigration and his America First domestic and foreign policy positions that were articulated during the campaign?…
…It is entirely possible that Trump has some very vague civic nationalist and populist beliefs. But they are likely not important to him, not crucial to his worldview; he is not serious or sincere about any of it in any hardcore, authentic fashion. He does in fact embody, as Ted Cruz suggested, New York values. He has Jewish family connections, a deep attachment to Israel, and a fondness for Negroes. He is a self-centered narcissist and if he truly cares about anyone other than himself then it likely is his elder daughter Ivanka and no one else. He certainly doesn’t care about his base. If Trump was (and is) sincere, then why does he ignore his base (e.g., Antifa attacks, State of the Union address), lie to his base (e.g., “the Wall is being built!”) and constantly betray his base (e.g., hiring Neocons, shilling for increased legal immigration, an aggressive foreign policy, pro-Negro “criminal justice reform”)? The man cares more about pardoning Jack Johnson than he does about his own supporters being physically attacked in the streets and sent to the hospital. His own DOJ persecutes his followers when they defend themselves and ignores the leftist domestic terrorists running wild in the streets. For Trump to be sincere and commit all his crimes of omission and commission against his base means that the man must be a psychotic retard. However, while he may be vulgar and ignorant, and may be a psychopath, he is not psychotic and he is not retarded…
…if he were sincere, he’s had 2.5 years to give some demonstration of it, and he has done the exact opposite. He’s not sincere. He’s a fraud and Johnson was wrong and Sallis was right.
Now back to Johnson’s screed:
When a man pays a huge price to campaign on issues that he didn’t need to win, that tells me that he is sincere. That’s why I believed Trump could save America. That’s why I did everything in my power to get him elected.
This is all about Johnson defending himself, not Trump. This is all about Johnson defending himself, so all you guys don’t realize how naive and inept he really is, so you keep sending in your “D’Nations” and allow him to live a better life than you do yourselves. How many trips to Europe have you taken recently?
So what happened to the Trump presidency? Obviously, he encountered forces stronger than his convictions about what is necessary to save America. Many of these forces are external. Blackmail cannot be ruled out. Historians will be puzzling out the enigma of Trump well into the next century.
Or they could have been reading EGI Notes back in 2016. I told you Trump was a fraud and a moron and I was correct. Johnson – an affirmative action “leader” – was dead wrong, and can’t admit it without the entire facade he’s erected around himself collapsing.
Donald Trump is a tragic figure in the true sense of the word. We are witnessing the terrifying spectacle of a man of genuine greatness failing because of his own grievous faults.
A man of genuine greatness! Who talked about his “big hands” at debates, and whose knowledge about America’s nuclear triad revolved around “devastation is really important.” This is a man whose policy decisions are influenced by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. This is a man who sits back and does nothing while his own supporters are physically attacked with impunity; indeed, his own DOJ persecutes his own supporters. He behaves like a borderline retard, but he must be “a man of genuine greatness,” or else Johnson is exposed as a fool, and we can’t have that!
Now I have a serious question to pose to White Nationalists:
Why support Greg Johnson?
If you want our movement to be in a position to mobilize the Trump electorate and turn it into a genuinely revolutionary National Populist movement, what should our stance be today and going into the 2020 election?
Der Movement needs to be destroyed.
Should we openly declare war on “Blompf”? Should we pour scorn on the “boomers” and “normies” who still support him? Should we announce our intention to tip the 2020 election to the Democrats?
Who is doing the latter? Oh, that’s right, Johnson’s fellow Quota Queens. Tulsi Gabbard! Andrew Yang! Thus cry the affirmative action cases. They’ll be endorsing AOC next.
Believe me, folks, I understand the temptation. The A$AP Rocky fiasco is surely one of the most surreal and undignified episodes in the history of the American Presidency.
But, let us not forget – Trump is a man of genuine greatness! I mean, really now, EGI Notes told you, years ago, that Trump was a Negrophilic race cuck. But keep on supporting Johnson and his impeccable pedigree.
And the entire “A$AP Rocky fiasco” undermines Johnson’s argument, as suggested in my last paragraph. Why would a man of “genuine greatness” do something so outrageously, embarrassingly stupid? Is the “tragic figure” Trump being blackmailed to support Black rappers? Was he blackmailed to pardon Jack Johnson or to push for “criminal justice reform” to allow Black criminals back on the streets? Isn’t it more likely that Trump is simply a moron, a juvenile jackass, a fan of Negro entertainers, a man of genuine smallness and mediocrity?
And I understand why the Left would like to exploit the El Paso massacre to grab power, but it boggles the mind that Trump and the Republicans are basically willing to throw power away, undermining the First and Second Amendments merely to appease raving lunatics who think anyone to the Right of Hillary Clinton should be censored, disarmed, and eventually replaced by brown helots.
Hmm…would a man truly sincere in his beliefs do this?
Bashing Trump has several benefits:
1. It helps put a stake in the heart of the Man on White Horse Syndrome.
2. It exposes the pathetic failures of the Quota Queens, who followed up their Trump humiliation with endorsements of Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang.
3. It clearly distinguishes White nationalism from Trumpian fraud and moronic civic nationalism.
These guys had three years to reach out to Trump supporters, and instead gave us Unite the Right, the Pilleater Chronicles, and the usual “movement” stupidities and dogmas. They are protecting their own income stream. Send in those “D’Nations”- that’s what it is all about. Defending Trump is all about defending their own record of hysterical Trump support. MAGA! Pepe! Kek!
If average group intelligence defines “supremacy,” this is a “yellow supremacist” publication.
Well, since Amren is always harping on IQ, then it is a yellow supremacist publication, as I have previously stated, and got criticized for by all the usual suspects.
The Counter-Currents and Amren failings together point out the real problem. The real problem is Der Movement, not Trump. It never really mattered, in the end, if Trump was sincere or not. Running that campaign,and being elected, was sufficient to set the stage. The 2016 election handed the baton to the “leaders” of the “movement” – who promptly dropped the baton in the toilet and flushed it away. Instead of building in depth we instead got obsessions over a cartoon frog, tiki torch marches and “Jews will not replace us,” Hermansson and Lewis, Pilleater’s accusations of cocaine use and homosexual sexual harassment at “racialist meetings,” the deranged fetishism of Durocher and Ash Donaldson, declarations that Anglin will be one of the new voices of WN 3.0 (remember that, Greg?), endorsements of Gabbard and Yang, and all the rest. Trump didn’t fail the “movement,” The “movement” failed itself. And it failed you, dear reader.
