New York Times: How a Defeated Trump Is Making a Muddle of the GOP

Just follow our lead.

We will spell it out and make it super duper easy for them.

We’re heading back to a populist and nationalist vs. progressive alignment in American politics like we had with Jackson in the antebellum era or the Bryan era during the early 20th century. This is what the Biden administration and the media pathologize as “the rise of far-right domestic extremism.”

The Democrats have become what the Whig Party or the Republican Party used to be: an Eastern-based party of corrupt, credentialed, cosmopolitan, novelty chasing coastal elites, Wall Street, Silicon Valley and Big Business plutocrats and lunatic millenarian social reformers boiling over with the same puritanical zeal to scold and lord it over the rest of the country that animated their forebears. Naturally, their preferred foreign policy of ruling and correcting the world is but an extension of their domestic policy.

New York Times:

“WASHINGTON — Republican lawmakers are passing voting restrictions to pacify right-wing activists still gripped by former President Donald J. Trump’s lie that a largely favorable election was rigged against them. G.O.P. leaders are lashing out in Trumpian fashion at businesses, baseball and the news media to appeal to many of the same conservatives and voters. And debates over the size and scope of government have been overshadowed by the sort of culture war clashes that the tabloid king relished.

This is the party Mr. Trump has remade. …

Even Democrats see the risk that Republican messaging on cultural issues will resonate with a large segment of voters. Dan Pfeiffer — a former aide to Mr. Obama who suffered through what his boss called the 2010 “shellacking” — warned members of his party this week that they should not simply roll their eyes when Republicans lament “cancel culture.”

“Republicans are raising these cultural topics to unite their party and divide ours,” he wrote in an essay. “Therefore, we must aggressively move the conversation back to the economic issues that unite our party and divide theirs.” …”

The two parties have traded places.

The Democrats have become the Republicans. The Republicans have become the Democrats. The Democracy used to be a Southern and Western-based party of farmers, laborers and small businessmen united by producerism who distrusted corrupt elites and who championed the interest of the common man. It was also the party of “white supremacy” or the straight out unapologetic White man.

All of the people whose ancestors voted for Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, who fought for the Confederacy, who voted for William Jennings Bryan, Woodrow Wilson, FDR and down to LBJ have finally been alienated and driven out of the Democratic Party. It has become an anti-White, anti-Southern and anti-Christian party. The process has dramatically accelerated over the past 30 years and particularly over the last 10 years. We don’t come from stock that would have had any time for political correctness and the electorate has been resorting around that issue and a few other ones like immigration.

Conservatism, Inc. was catapulted into power by this long term shift and backlash in the 1980s. The migration is nearly complete now though which has over time swamped the True Cons. The rise and fall of Trump tore down the old order and has stirred up the electorate that he had created.

The “far right domestic extremists” believe pretty much all of the same things as Republican voters now whether it is on immigration, trade, foreign policy, political correctness, censorship, crime, trans, cultural degeneration, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, so-called “journalists,” the regeneration of White racial consciousness, etc. In retrospect, the “rise of far-right domestic extremism” looks like the tip of the iceberg and now the iceberg has emerged in full view in the polls. The two are indistinguishable now.

Did the Democrats stop to consider the long term consequences of all the shit that they pulled last year? Evidently, they didn’t! They’ve “accelerated” things beyond our wildest expectations!

Note: Even if you polled a question like support for political violence in 2021, you would find that far more ordinary Republicans than “far-right domestic extremists” support violence. In fact, it was ordinary people (i.e., the normies) who stormed the Capitol and actual “White Nationalists” were underrepresented there. Over half of Trump voters also believe the election was outright stolen from him.

  1. The New York Times trying to tell the GOP what and how it should be is something akin to a synagogue criticizing the local Nazis for not being correctly organized and focused…

  2. Conservatism.,inc Reganites is dead.What have they conserve,35 years and Rush Limbaugh bloviation the south west is under Mexico sphere of influence and urban cities under black misrule.

  3. Progressives/liberals ALWAYS overreach and push things too far. It’s that jewish revolutionary spirit!

  4. Hunter the false populist with GOP leanings is incorrect about the parties switching places. DLC Democrats may not be as economically liberal as the progressive Democrats and you are, but which members of the two parties have even backed regular pandemic payments, UBI, wealth tax, or higher taxes on corporations and the rich? Democrats. How many Republicans have advocated any of these? None as far as I know. Suck it up and accept you’re wrong.

    • None of those things are happening with Democrats controlling the White House and Congress. They are not even willing to even raise the corporate tax rate back to what it was in 2017. It was Democrats who killed the $15 minimum wage. It was Joe Biden who shot down $50,000 in student loan debt relief. They also reduced the eligibility of the $1,400 checks so that significantly fewer people got checks than under Trump. They’ve already succeeded in driving up gas prices.

      Feel free to prove me wrong. If Democrats pass Medicare for All, the PRO Act or UBI, I will happily apologize. There is no evidence, however, that they are willing to do that. Krysten Sinema even did a little dance when she killed the $15 minimum wage.

      • The premise of your article is saying that there was a political “switch”, and that now the Democrats are the “corporate” party, otherwise indirectly implying that Republican party is now somehow legitimately the “working class, populist” party. The only thing true is the stimulus check part, but only true because the House Democrats passed that second stimulus check, and the House Republicans were pressured and shamed into voting for it. As seen, ALL Republican voted against the third stimulus bill under Biden. Your argument that the Democrats that they diluted or weakened their policies thanks to “Blue Dogs” doesn’t mean they’re against those policies. I find it convenient how you flip the burden on the Democrats, but the GOP. You’re argument is that the Democrats don’t go far enough, but not that the GOP are against ANY of those policies. The Krysten Sinema’s and Joe Manchin’s dont want to raise the minimum wage to 15 dollars, but at least would still vote to raise it – in comparison to the GOP, who DON’T want to raise it, PERIOD. Speaking of healthcare, the GOP spent the majority of legislative trying to get rid of healthcare rather expanding it by going after Obamacare. Of course universal healthcare is the goal, and the health insurance industry is a key obstacle, but not getting rid of any of the laws in place as the GOP wants to do, is not what’s desired. They’re also against the infrastructure bill because “debt”. So what’s your prevailing argument? Face it, you’ve been duped by the oligarchs who use the GOP as their vehicle to consolidate power by enticing whites into voting for them for culture war issues that appeal to whites, hoping those whites don’t care about the pro-plutocratic policies because they’re too fixated on “muh white replacement”. Too bad as the “white replacement” still occurs, and they’re running out of prejudiced white voters, and so the GOP’s response to their shitty polices is voter suppression (at least until HR1 is passed, which will stop that). Your argument is crushed.

        • TVGR,

          I posted links discrediting Brad’s flimsy argument, but he censored them because he didn’t want to be exposed as a dishonest pro-GOP shilling grifter. As a blogger, he should have thicker skin but after doing a Google search of his name, I’m getting a clear picture of him. I suggest you do the same.

        • Since OP Brad censored my post with links taking apart his weak “Republicans are the everyday man’s party and Democrats are the CEO party now” thesis, I’ll paste the vital sections so people can read how erroneous his premise is.

          Eleven Senate Democrats are pushing President Joe Biden to put recurring direct payments and enhanced jobless benefits in the economic recovery and infrastructure plan he will try to pass this year.
          The letter was backed by Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Senate Budget Committee Chair Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Senate Banking Committee Chair Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, D-Mass., Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Calif., and Sen.

          Wealth tax, estate tax, capital gains: Here’s how Democrats want to tax the super rich

          Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; and eight other Democrats proposed the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act in early March.
          The bill would levy a 2% wealth tax on the net worth of households and trusts ranging from $50 million to $1 billion. The tax would be 3% for anything over $1 billion.
          About 100,000 Americans would be subject to a wealth tax in 2023, according to Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, economists at the University of California, Berkeley. The policy would raise at least $3 trillion over a decade, they found.

          Lawmakers push Biden to offer recurring $2,000 stimulus checks

          some Democratic lawmakers are pushing for an even bigger response: $2,000 monthly payments until the pandemic is history.
          Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, and more than 50 other House members are urging the Biden administration to back such a policy, according to a signed letter sent to Mr. Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Signers of the January 28 letter also include other leading House progressives such as Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

          Democrats’ Stealth Plan to Enact Universal Basic Income
          The Covid stimulus would give checks to parents, with no strings attached. UBI for everyone is next.

          Congressional Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus bill provides for no-strings attached checks, limited only to parents of children under 18. This UBI for parents is billed as pandemic relief
          .

          Brad Hunter, you’re wrong about no Democrats wanting to do any of this. Again, how many Republicans are willing to support any of this? We’re waiting and all we hear are crickets, Mr. Republican in populist clothing.

        • At The Very Great Replacement, Republican tears –
          I think Hunter Wallace knows he is not an effective debater or else he’d be publicly debating as Richard Spencer and Nick Fuentes have instead of refusing to debate anyone in front of cameras. He’s a blogger, not a public speaker or podcaster.

  5. “Did the Democrats stop to consider the long term consequences of all the shit that they pulled last year? Evidently, they didn’t! They’ve “accelerated” things beyond our wildest expectations!”

    It will all be for naught if the right leader doesn’t see the new golden opportunity, stand up & take the bull by the horns: a serious man, not just another dead-end pied piper like bloviatin’ jew-whore Dump.

    Don’t hold your breath.
