As I have explained, the most important reason to vote for Trump is that he is expanding our base by converting ordinary conservatives to national populism.
Hillary’s Alt-Right speech was a massive signal boost. She has put the Alt-Right on the national stage at the center of a vast rightwing conspiracy. Even better, she held George W. Bush and John McCain up as examples of the neutered, non-threatening mainstream conservatism that Democrats are used to whipping.
By making the Alt-Right into the new Democrat boogeyman (a role formerly held by the Tea Party), she could keep the national spotlight on us for years. If she goes down in November, it will follow that the Alt-Right which has hijacked the Republican Party is to blame for her defeat. White Nationalists will have taken over America!
Hard Alt-Right, not merely Alt-Right Lite, will be a media sensation. In regrouping for 2018 and 2020, the Hard Alt-Right will be an irresistible target for the Democrats and the media – these are the “racists” and “sexists” who are oppressing you, or so it will go. In other words, the days of the “no platforming” strategy will be a relic of the past.
The media will give the Hard Alt-Right a national platform at a time when 55 percent of White America says life has gotten worse for people like them. The vast majority of these people have never been exposed to our message because of the “no platforming” strategy of the media which denies us a voice.
What could go wrong? It won’t be just the numbers of Alt-Right Lite going up.
