To put it simply, this is pretty much what a electoral map would look like if Trump lost 3% of the white vote and gained 10% of the Latino, 8% of the Asian, and 5% of the black vote: pic.twitter.com/l28SbyoblS— Ryan James Girdusky (@RyanGirdusky) September 16, 2020
Rod Dreher has a new article about White identitarians and their long running problems with the American social credit system and how it is now being applied to conservatives.
“OK, but what would happen here in the West if private enterprise started imposing an informal social credit system on us? Gavin Haynes, writing for the UK commentary site UnHerd, says that it’s already happening to far-right people. He gives the example of white identitarians in the UK who were without warning refused service from their banks — including access to their money. …
We had all better pay attention to this. If you think that the banks and other gatekeepers of the financial system are going to stop with far-right political extremists, you are deluded. I mentioned here the other day that conservatives ought to be pushing legislators to fight wokeness with substantive policies and legislation. Here’s one: pass a law guaranteeing every citizen a right to a bank account. Everyone — even the bad people. …”
He has a book out about it.
It is called Live Not By Lies. I haven’t bothered to read the book because it isn’t going to tell me anything that I don’t already know. We’ve been living with the American social credit system for decades. The way this works is that the SPLC and ADL calls you a “racist” or an “anti-Semite” which defines you and severely limits your ability to live a normal life. You become a political outcast.
I’ve been banned from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google Pay, Stripe, PayPal, Cash App and countless other services. It hasn’t shut me up though. I’m still here sharing my thoughts, but I am not voting for the Center Right in elections anymore because from my perspective it is useless. What is Donald Trump doing about any of my problems? He cut their taxes and celebrated Big Tech as the Trillion Dollar Club in the White House. Back in February, he couldn’t shut up about DOW 30,000. He made those people billions of dollars and they happily returned the favor by censoring the shit out of him.
The real story here isn’t the American social credit system. Just ask all the folks who have been hit with “racism” and purged from mainstream conservatism over the past few decades. No, the real news here is that so many pissed off White men were so fed up with Donald Trump that they just fired him. The 5% who made Donald Trump the president in the first place tossed him out of the White House. If they had shown up at the polls and voted for him, he would have easily won the 2020 election.
This was the Trump presidency.
It was a hot air balloon that inflamed the country and made our lives objectively worse while making billionaires like him richer than ever before. It was a simple cost-benefit decision. The costs of having Blumpf floating over the White House and being blamed for it weren’t worth the benefits.
