Donald & UsBain Dewitt
Donald Trump’s master strategy is such a perfect response to the Current Year that was, and the Current Current Year, that the man is either a genius, a savant, or someone anointed by the Gods to wreak havoc on the folly of humankind. The Donald has armored himself in a sort of ideological invulnerability that comes from strategizing on a primal level, and this makes him unassailable, even as it arouses the most visceral hatred and bile from his enemies.
Commonly, Trump is either “a racist,” “a xenophobe,” or a garden-variety “asshole,” “bigot,” and so on. To the press he is much, much worse: the WaPo laments in “The Moment of Truth: We Must Stop Trump” that “Watching Donald Trump’s rise. . . . I now understand how Hitler could have come to power in Germany.” He “broadcasts incendiary and foul ideas.” The Telegraph in the UK has a “Who Said It: DT or AH?” quiz. CNN’s Sally (((Kohn))) say’s “there’s a word for [Trump Supporters] . . . It’s fascism” and drops the “Hitler was elected” H-bomb, and that’s just the first page of Google results.
They’ve lined up all their best Hitler Comparison Artillery and have been pounding away; but we’ll see who can pound longest. Peak oil doomer James Howard Kunstler gave me the inspiration for this article with his absolutely laughable hyperbole: “As for Mr. Trump, he remains what I said at the campaign’s outset: worse than Hitler, lacking the brains, charm, and savoir faire of the Ol’ Fuhrer, and with his darkness even more plainly visible.” Were it not so absurd, this would be really gripping stuff; real boys-own adventure story material for young American patriots to nourish themselves on.
Trump is a “master troll” triggering the enemy with increasingly outrageous displays of male independence and power. The more intense the hysteria he evokes in white liberals, Jews, and shills by stoking their resentment, the more he reinforces the image of himself as the man-who-can, the authentic choice, and the only one running on the ticket of Patriarchal Statesmanship.
The feud of Donald and Jeb! has been the defining narrative of the Republican race. On one hand, a dynastic cuck who offers “conservative solutions,” plastic turtles, and televised exasperation that he is being “demonized.” On the other, a self-made billionaire who has pledged himself to the NEETs and blue collars; who talks, talks big, and talks loud; and can point to his own organization as proof of his ability to deliver.
Going into South Carolina — a state where George Bush has enduring popularity and the decision to remove Saddam is widely supported — Trump declared the Iraq war a “big, fat mistake.” He then turned to the rest of the runners and gestured “Come at me, Bro.” This was a ballsy move but an essential part of the Donald Dynamic. Even when taking a position that voters would strongly disagree with, by doing so from a position of both sincerity and fact, Trump showed he is willing to stake his political life on his integrity. The gamble was that voters — even in disagreement — would reward the credibility this bought, and it paid off. Rolling Stone comments that Trump won big with voters looking for “much needed change,” but Cruz and Rubio won for having “shared values” and being “electable,” which signifies a crucial distinction in voter mentality.
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.
Trump’s insistence that he would “Make America Great Again” recognizes that America is no longer Great — no longer “winning” — and Trump stops just short of saying that America is as pozzed as Charlie Sheen. While not rejecting egalitarian ideology directly, Trump’s trump card is that he subjugates a concern for ideology to the facts of Realpolitik. Trump’s democratic success undermines the social hierarchy based on humanitarian moral signalling and the humanistic pretense that the welfare/warfare state rests on.
Those who are alert to imminent social collapse and Third World colonization are avid Trump supporters. His macho charisma and alpha male qualities activate the survival instincts of white Americans who feel completely ensnared by modernity and who want to circle the wagons, load their muskets, and keep what precious little they have left safe from illegal aliens and terrorists pouring across the border. Trump’s supporters have a reputation for being aggressive and “passionate.” No doubt. Their survival instincts are screaming at them that Trump is the man they need to build the wall and protect us all. In contrast, those with threat blindness, or who are safely insulated from Third World colonization and increasing diversity, remain concerned about moral fluff, social appearances, and “fairness” — just like a great many Evangelical rubes who voted for Cruz based on some codswallop about abortions, an entirely sideline issue to the demographic survival of white Americans and the low-level ethnic warfare in “Amexica.”
Every vote for Trump endorses the idea that there are bad people who are dangerous, that walls are necessary, and most importantly, that egalitarianism has to be subject to the laws of nature like everything else. Jeb Bush’s concern about the “moderate opposition” (read: “our terrorists”) in Syria is a “humanrightsitude” that a neocon would trot out in order to drum up some veneer of legitimacy for another illegal war. Trump’s insistence that he would look a Syrian child in the eye and say, “You can’t come here” is another prepper who would crawl through broken glass and barbed wire to press the voting button for Trump.
Trump reigns-in the wild insanity of utopian humanism. The AngloZionist empire has defined itself upon Human Rights and egalitarian doctrine. The very legal definition of an “American” is propositional, and both Britain and France define themselves only as state entities that uphold “Democratic Values.” Should Trump surf the Kali Yuga all the way into the White House, then that slavish devotion to egalitarianism would be inverted. The rule of law and propositions about “rights” would once again be subordinated to the goals of national security and prosperity, as Trump says, of us “having a great life all together.”
The slow motion extermination of Europe through dissolution into a ocean of dirt would lose American backing and American political leadership. Washington would likely retreat into fortified isolationism, and the world over, liberal democracies of whites would be left staring at their hands and having to face the question that if adherence to egalitarianism doesn’t define them, then what does? What shapes and makes them a nation and what conditions must be met for citizenship, beyond a vague allegiance to “democratic values”?
Trump’s detractors sense that the gravy train of gaining money, status, and legal privileges through egalitarian oneupmanship is about to come to an end, because by electing Trump, Americans are sending a message that they will no longer pay or bleed for such self-indulgence. This election is so gritty, so tense, so able to convulse the body of the nation because ethno-tribal identity is like a boomerang: the harder you throw it from you, the more violently it returns.

Whoever you are you’re quite the writer – well said, all of it.
Excellent piece. I was a very reluctant Trump supporter, despite obvious White Nationalist enthusiasm for some of his talking points. But I was stumped by the Trump. I hardly need to say why I am supporting him because everyone reading this will already know (the same reasons you probably are…although the proposed tariff and harsher treatment of traitorous American companies sealed the deal for me, which is something not many people seem to be talking about).
But the best part, for me, is that win or lose, the game has been changed. A win would be great but a loss would be great too. A loss will lead to what might be an historically unprecedented outpouring of pure wrath, a scorched earth policy directed from below at the American establishment.
We simply have nothing to lose by supporting Trump.
It just may be that Trump’s campaign is a payoff for the meta-politics which have been pushed by CC and the Alternative Right for some years.
This bears more examination.
What does ‘((( xxx )))’ mean? I don’t speak twitter/facebook.
They’re echoes. See the lexicon at The Right Stuff.
It means a Jew.
Not to change the focus, — excellent essay, by the way –Kunstler’s absurd piece is just the crowning demonstration of his role as gatekeeper. His job is to attract the preppers and doomers–It’s all coming to an end! he screams, week after week–why gently — or now, violently — steering them away from a recognition of Who is responsible.(Hint: his Tribe). Ultimately he doesn’t matter, but it’s a good paradigm example useful elsewhere.
Trump, on the other hand, as you say, attracts the prepper voter (to the extent they haven’t already gone off the grid) by articulating his actual concerns.
I hope people are not seeing too much in this character. How many messiahs have we seen come and go, whom turned out to be nothing. The only positive thing I can see about Trump is that some real politicians will see that he tapped into something and maybe this can be used to push the politics in America to the right. Remember that Nixon played this game masterfully, but turned out to be the opposite.
Right, Peter Quint….. time will tell……….
Part of my mind holds onto a fear that Trump’s campaign is a new and separate part of the Neocon game overloaded and accelerated. I truly hope to be mistaken.
This alarm has receded lately being helped along by the reaction of the right’s enemies within and without.
It’s still there; more military spending, further enrichment of that place we know of, an invasion of Iran and the dangers that come with that, no fence, no tariffs or much else that his voters want except an apparent effort that way, he could shift blame to Congress and the media for such “failures”. The dissolution of Alt-Right potential by association with these.
The sudden appearance of real leadership after decades of shills?
Convince me I’m wrong, please.
I’m being facetiously curt here, but who would inauthentically claim this: ‘I Will Gladly Accept The Mantle Of Anger’?
“Even when taking a position that voters would strongly disagree with, by doing so from a position of both sincerity and fact, Trump showed he is willing to stake his political life on his integrity.”
The above point cannot be emphasized enough: by criticizing the Iraq War now, Trump was actually looking ahead to the general election. It was a signal to _Democrats_ who might be on the fence about him that he is not beholden to anyway on any issue. Had he waited until the general election to emphasize the failure of the Iraq War, it would have been seen as simply pandering for votes. By doing it now, and as noted in the essay in just about the most hostile state for such a position, in a highly risky situation, he truly signals his independence and honesty on a crucial issue.
Excellent article. And it gives talking points and rhetorical riffs to place in the comments’ sections of larger venues, to goose Whites on the edges of their seats. So they’re moved to accelerate their efforts in synchronization with the accelerated opposition. Which, as has been nicely stated, is the dynamic of Trump’s campaign. The more he’s hated, the more he thrives. You’re absolutely right, “The Donald has armored himself in a sort of ideological invulnerability that comes from strategizing on a primal level.”
Trump does two things:
a) shifts the overton window to the point where political correctness may be destroyed.
b) destroys the republican party, revealing to everyone that the frauds aren’t secretly on ‘our’ side. Perhaps an actual right wing party will be formed in the future.
That’s it. All else is irrelevant.
Brilliant little essay on “Trumpism”, lol. I agree with all of the writers assertions. The only question I have is, can and mainly WILL Trump supporters sustain the Trump movement(if that is what it truly is) and create the change it seems to imply…….
