America’s Great Divide: Donald Trump, Part Two

The first half of the story is the Barack Obama presidency and covers the rise of populism from Sarah Palin and the “Real America” in the 2008 campaign, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party in 2010, Mitt Romney and the emergence of Donald Trump and the Birther movement and on through Trayvon Martin, Ferguson and the Dylann Roof church shooting. It does a good job of using Breitbart to show how conservatism has gradually become more and more reliant on race baiting as the GOP establishment and Republican base went in opposite directions.

In the second half of the story, Trump defeats his conservative rivals in the 2016 primary, defeats Hillary and is elected president, takes over the Republican Party and passes the tax cuts and nominates Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The culmination of a decade of populism in the Trump presidency is … the agenda of mainstream conservatism. Charlottesville plays out in the streets because the MAGA agenda died in Paul Ryan’s Congress.

There were conservative demagogues like Trump who preceded Huey Long in Louisiana and other Southern states who made populist noises but who sold out to the oligarchy and accomplished nothing of lasting significance. Donald Trump never had a real ideology. He was the “vessel” of people like Bannon and Sessions. The wall was a memory device created by Roger Stone and Sam Nunberg to keep the moron on message during the 2016 campaign.

Note: If you still don’t believe Donald Trump was always a fraud who entered the 2016 campaign to promote his own brand, watch the PBS Frontline documentary Zero Tolerance which covers how Bannon and Sessions lost control of him in 2017.

    Trump is so sleazy and dishonest he makes Barry Nigger look like another Frederick the Great by comparison.

    I HATE ZOG.

    • in fact Jew-stooge Drumpf’s 1st term has simply been an extension of Obama’s 2nd. With

      this exception: globohomo Drumpf is even more viciously

      anti-free speech and anti-gun rights than Obama.

  2. Today I was thinking to myself, if Pat Buchanan had been elected on his usual program of anti-immigration and anti-free trade, and then pursued the same policies as Trump does now, then I would have been really shocked and felt betrayed. But with Trump? I mean, the man is a casino owner from New York, he had already ran multiple frauds (e.g. Trump University) before he became a candidate. The man is a fraud and a pathological liar on his third marriage with some imported model. It is my impression that many people who voted for him must’ve known he is a sleaze and a crook, but they convinced themselves that he would be a crook on their side. In reality, he’s only in it for himself and his family and therefore his donors.

      You forget reality TV star, fake college president, steak and ties salesman, and all around Grifter. We really are dupes. Especially myself as I have met the man and can say he is very warm yet at the same time you can tell he has no memory of you, could care less how or if he knew you, and will forget about you within the next second he advances onto the buffet

  3. Hunter, I agree with the basic principle of your take – what Buchanan almost five decades ago described as “conservative votes, liberal victories” – but I think you’re being obdurately unreasonable.

    There is much talk in pro-white circles about the need for cultural change. How many times have we all heard repeated “politics is downstream from culture?” And yet when there are unmistakable signs that the requisite cultural changes are occurring – eg an American president making racial noises not heard for two generations – it’s impatiently dismissed as irrelevant trickery.

    Come on.

      You really cannot be this gullible? Politics is downstream from culture and culture is downstream from a particular type of people… Sure. But you are forgetting the fact that despite the vast majority of people not wanting anymore immigration we are still inundated. This can apply to any topic from speech to guns to late term abortion.

      What you are missing is that politics no longer runs downstream from culture or people because THE GAME IS RIGGED. It doesn’t matter what the people want or how much they cheer. They will NEVER get even a taste let alone till their hearts content. Add in the fact that the people are being drastically replaced at record levels and in the shortest time frame in history.

      Twenty years ago, my busy east coast town and all surrounding bergs were Italian, Irish, German, and Dutch. Now? Hell, i go whole days frequenting the gyms, stores and supermarket without seeing a non Indian/Pakistani, let alone a white person. So much for my 150 years of ancestral blood sweat and tears.

      If you still believe the great political savior or Republican Renaissance is coming, you are in for a rude awakening my friend

  4. Blompf’s thin skin and ego were his true catalysts for running for president in 2016. When Obama mocked Trump to his face at the White House Correspondents Dinner, that’s when Zion Don decided to run as a RETARDican for POTUS. So in effect, Obama played a large part in getting the Tel Aviv sunset colored lying and deceiving SOB into the Oval Office.

    The unabashed truth is that Blompf and Obama are in agreement on most issues. The most glaring difference being Obama just didn’t smoke circumsized kosher cock 24/7/365.

  5. “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”
