The Cold Wind of White Disaffection is Blowing

Some mainstream political writers are starting to get it (emphasis added in all cases).

And that brings us to the big lesson the GOP should take from the entire Trump affair: There is another side to the Republican Party, one that the GOP has tried to ignore, and can ignore no longer. It’s a side of the party that has learned to distrust its leaders on immigration, to be suspicious of a turbo-charged capitalism that threatens their way of life. And it may be a side of the party that is needed to return the GOP to presidential victories. It is the forgotten part of the Nixon-Reagan coalition. And by being ignored, it has turned angrier and more toxic.

But whoever eventually vanquishes Trump will still have to address the Trump phenomena. The billionaire has energized a large block of disaffected white voters who feel betrayed by the establishment of both parties and lost in an increasingly globalized economy. But he has also alienated huge swaths of the electorate with his angry rhetoric about immigrants and Muslims. Whoever gets the GOP nomination will have to figure out how to keep Trump’s supporters in the fold and get them out on Election Day to defeat Clinton in key swing states where the Democratic nominee is likely to dominate among women and other key demographic groups. 

A menu of supply side tax cuts that deliver huge benefits to the wealthy and big corporations won’t do it. It’s not clear what will. Even if Trump falls, Republicans will still have a big Trump problem.

If Whites want to stop being objectively worthless, they have to stop giving their votes away to Republican cuckservatives.  The Republican party must be destroyed.  White voters should take a long-term view, and stop being pulled into short-term “football game” views of elections. It’s not “their team” against “our team.”  It’s all about forcing the System to take White interests seriously – which will be the first step toward the collapse of the System.

There’s a cold wind blowing, cuckservatives. Do you feel the chill yet?

Predatory Capitalism Exploits White American Individualism

Manipulating middle class and working class White voters.

Individualism requires ethics and moral principles. Thus, it fails when invaded by ethnocentric tribalists. But it can also fail for other reasons – such as being exploited by fatcat capitalists and their rent-seeking behavior, to influence the political system to amass more wealth and power.

In America, a lot of the whole “individualism, libertarianism, small government” meme derives from the wealthy exploiting the natural tendencies of White Americans to favor such things, in order to establish big market capitalism, outsourcing, and mass migration. Chamber of Commerce cabals are “playing unfair” with individualism just as do, say, Jews. All this talk of “let’s make the country safe for the small businessman” really means “let’s make the country safe for the Koch brothers, let’s make the country safe for Gates and Zuckerberg, let’s ship the jobs to China and import Mexicans and Asians to do whatever jobs can’t be shipped out.”
When Democrats assert that the White middle class and working class vote against their own economic interests by supporting Republicans, they are right. But they betray their own racial interests even more by voting Democrat. 

Missing the Meaning of Trump

Even Buchanan does not get it.
The major issue is not whether he wins, but why is he getting so much support.  Putting aside all the girlish shrieking about “the Trumpening,” the reality is the Trump is a fairly lousy candidate: an obnoxious buffoon, a realty show star, ill informed, whose views on legal immigration are questionable, whose daughter is married to a Jew, etc.
But he is by far the best of the bunch, and the only one who can be called a “right-wing populist,” despite his pro-fatcat economic views.
Thus, the real meaning of Trump is that the GOP White voting base is beginning to stray off the reservation; the natives are getting restless.
Sure, the base is still stupid and feckless: see the support for Carson, and note that most of the base will rally to whoever the GOP nominee will be, even if Jeb or Marco.  But, still, the enthusiasm for Trump, which puzzles the Establishment, is a clear sign that the base is at least beginning to wake up, although this process may take altogether too long (and could become channeled in counter-productive directions).
Nevertheless, it is NOT business as usual in American politics. One wonders – if Duke was running this year, how much support would he get?  
And all the talking heads who assert that “the GOP could win the national election in 2016 by shifting left on immigration” still don’t get it. Yes, most of the stupid base may still come out to support that, but enough may stay home to ensure a Democrat victory.
At some point, even dumb Whites can’t continue to be fooled all of the time.
