Let’s be clear. We don’t want anyone to be confused as to the message coming from a growing number of voices: Progressives and their policies have sown the wind and set the spring for the populist backlash that is now unfolding. Sorry, much as they might try, there is nowhere else to pin the blame.
We have been predicting this moment for years, and what do we know? So no one should be surprised at all. Anyone who claims to be surprised by the tsunami of populist resistance that is washing through the Western world, is either engaging in a childish self-deception or stupid.
Whilst the engineers of cultural Marxism & their progressive errand boys have become drunk on hubris and fallen into ideological insanity where cultures, history and even reality, are subservient to progress & ideals.
And let’s face it, they have controlled the narrative in western liberal societies for over a generation. They have lived the good life. Champagne socialists scoffing at the small-minded little people from the dinner tables of the metropolitan capitals of the western world safe in the knowledge that as university professors, health care professionals and media directors, their jobs would never be under threat from the mass immigration or globalization they prescribed for everyone else.
The left is still operating from a 1970’s mindset in which fascists exist naturally and need to be crushed. The idea that their ideologically driven policies might have created such people hasn’t ever occurred to them. Believe me, I know these people; their ideological arrogance knows no limit.
Liberals will continue to be confused by Trump’s election unless they understand it in the context of Brexit and broader global issues.
As with Brexit, progressives in U.S. have championed the interests of globalism and migrants at the expense of those who are most impacted by globalization & immigration. Anyone who had a problem with this was labeled a small-minded xenophobe and told to go away. Only trouble is, they don’t go away, they find another way of having their voice heard (See Brexit, Trump and what Le Pen is set to repeat in France). Pretty predictable if you are not ideologically insane, or suckling on the tit of CNN, ABC, WaPo, Huff Po; NYT et al.
The progressive liberal elite have sown the wind and set the spring for the backlash we are now starting to gain momentum.
Anyone who didn’t see the election of Trump coming wasn’t paying attention. Thump was pulling in stadium rock size crowds of 10,000 – 30,000 regularly in the final months of campaigning, whilst Hillary struggled to pull in 200-400. Those are not the figures that supported the MSM predicted Hillary landslide.
We should be happy that people have the awareness to see through the sort of crass blanket propaganda we have been treated to over this election cycle and during Brexit; that they have grown weary of the prescribed cycle of regime change and subsequent coercive engineered migration to Balkanize otherwise stable western societies, and have rejected it wholesale in favour of sovereignty and mutual co-operation.
But if they think we are done, they have once again misjudged the climate.
Sorry Snowflake, It Ain’t Over
Like many who fall into the ‘basket of deplorables’ I realized early on that the battle between Trump and Clinton was much more than simply a contest between two politicians for the presidency. At its core it was an ideological conflict between light and dark, truth and lies. It was a struggle for the heart of western civilization in general.
And while I’ve never considered myself much of a right winger, being more of a libertarian bent, I have found myself increasingly pushed and marginalized by the “enlightened and progressive” amongst you into the same camp with all sorts of deplorables, regardless of where they lived and what they called themselves. Nationalists, alt righters, anarchists, constitutionalists and so on and so forth all made for strange bedfellows but an effective team. Working on the premise that the enemy of my enemy is my friend we have all found common ground. We have you to thank for that. By pushing, badgering, harassing, marginalizing and insulting us on a regular basis you created something new. And it crushed you at the ballot box.
But not to worry. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to learn from your mistakes. You see, the battle that took place in your polling stations on the 8th of November was just that. A battle. We, the freedom loving peoples of the western world, well, we’re just getting warmed up.
So retreat to your safe spaces, grab your adult colouring books and put on a happy face my special snow flakes because regardless of whoever/whatever you are and regardless of what nation it is you reside in, we, the deplorables, are coming for you.
