Dr. Paul Gottfried, one of the first academics and activists to embrace the term “Alternative-Right,” wrote in War and Democracy (Arktos, 2012) about the how the mainstream of US institutions and politics “desire to transform those who are not like us politically and culturally” into carbon-copies of the degenerate, multicultural dying West.
Though Trump, who ran on an anti-globalist platform, is now in the White House, we still see this powerful desire to go abroad in search of anti-liberal dragons to slay expressing itself in Congress and the media. The meme “our values, goy” was used by the Alt-Right during the recent presidential campaign to mock the globalist, anti-White views expressed by Bush, Rubio, Hillary and company. All agreed (with the exception of Trump) that these values needed to be pressed upon the Middle East, Russia and the entire world not already under the influence of Washington, DC-New York City.
Gottfried noted that “The values that we are urged to export… are coterminous with how democracy evolved in twentieth-century society, with special interest on the treatment of women, minorities, and on a certain acquisitive individualism identified with the opening of markets and a mixed economy.” This very neatly sums up the foreign policy of the USA in recent history under both parties.
Gottfried explains the power behind their “grand crusades” to spread liberalism aboard:
There is, of course, no justification for thinking, like Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, that all of mankind years for the current brand of American democracy. Nonetheless, those who hold this position have advantages over their critics. They belong to the boards of influential magazines and prestigious Beltway institutes. They are therefore more likely to get their views and biases accepted as policy than those who are kept out of the public discussion. Moreover, the manner in which American history is now presented in public education and the media glorifies powerful and expanded executive government. The presidents whom educators, popular historians, and journalists place in their pantheon have combined strong economic control with grand military crusades for globalist, egalitarian ideals.
