Donald Trump said this on Meet The Press this morning:
“Donald Trump would reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. as president, he said in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.
“We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,” he said in the interview, which will air in full on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this Sunday.
Pressed on what he’d do if the immigrants in question had nowhere to return to, Trump reiterated: “They have to go.”
“We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country,” he said. …”
They have to go. All of them. Back to Mexico, or wherever.
There was a scene in the episode “Hardhome” in the last season of Game of Thrones in which the Night’s King and the White Walkers slew the Wilding army. As Jon Snow rowed away in ignomious defeat, the Wildlings were raised from the dead, now a part of the Night’s King army preparing to invade the Seven Kingdoms.
I think a comparable moment just happened in American politics with marginalized and disaffected voters. All those people, long laughed at and excluded from the “mainstream,” who were cast out beyond the wall of “respectability,” are now in the tank for Donald Trump. The signal has gone out to join the Trump campaign and to openly organize in the mainstream under the banner of the Republican frontrunner to take down the hated cuckservative establishment.
I have no intention of getting involved myself, but I have to wonder: I know from firsthand experience how many people support our views, but who have been afraid to get involved because they fear the consequences. How many of those people, who have been exposed to our ideas over two decades, who are confined to venting on the internet, to involuntary anonymoty, will now take advantage of this gift to organize and host meet ups under the cloak of the Trump campaign?
How many of those people will get involved in the Trump ground game as it unfolds in the 2016 primaries? How successful will they be in networking with all the disaffected, alienated people in their area, who will be drawn out into the open by the Trump campaign?
Note: I should add here that Trump isn’t going to “take back America.” He is going to land some serious blows on the GOP and the legitimacy of the system. He also just laid out the red carpet for all those who want to move beyond the last 20 years of internet isolation and anonymity.
