All things considered, the election turned out pretty swell! Despite the liberal news & entertainment complex’s decree that Trump and his party would suffer during the midterms, the opposite seems to have transpired. Now yeah, we have to admit, the GOP could have swept the house and turned the Blue Wave into a Red Tide, but we’ll take what we can get.
And what we got, it turns out, wasn’t bad at all. The House is still divided to a point of near-gridlock, though it now has a Democratic majority and that joke of a politician, Nancy Pelosi, who famously had Obamacare pushed through congress with the words “We have to pass it in order to find out what’s in it,” is back in her clown chair at the head of it all. Meanwhile, the GOP made history by losing their majority in the House but gaining several seats in the Senate, where most of the legislative power is held.
It turns out that many if not most of the GOP seats lost in the House were those moderates who tended, more often than not, to be thorns in the side of the Trump agenda. Such seats deserve to be lost in an embittered political landscape that has polarized beyond hope of any immediate solution. Republicans equipped to debate the nuances of the free market, or those who seem to still think that Democratic voters can be convinced with rhetorical arguments of Reagan, are of no use today.
The lessons from Tuesday should be the same lessons from 2016, albeit perhaps more in the vein of verification rather than discovery. The important take-away is that the voting blocks of the United States are divided across ethnic lines. This is not up for dispute. Falling back on a liberal point of view and simply expecting the entire voting base of the country to respect each other’s wishes as free thinking, autonomous individuals is as blind as it is cowardly in today’s political field. It is now no longer feasible to call “well-meaning but deluded” any republican politician running on a platform of classical liberal values; attempts to do so, when confronted with the obvious reality of the opposition’s race-fueled platform, is intentional suicide.
Worse, the GOP has no hope of capturing those Democratic voters invested in their ethnos. Between the entrenchment of the propaganda system at the top of American life and the fierce in-group ethnic dedication among these voting blocks, the GOP’s only hope is to rest its laurels on white America. The problem is that white America has only a few short years left as a national identity.
The second lesson: radicalism is the way forward. Not violence, although the country’s accelerating slip toward balkanization should be clear to those paying attention. Rather, ideological radicalism; the two sides of this political argument are well past the point of listening to one another. Around dinner tables, fortunately, there still exists some semblance of political sanity—at least for now. But at the federal level, and at the national level of media and entertainment, neither side can afford to paint the other as worthy of the same respect due to a neighbor.
The GOP has to play to win and play to keep. Trump understands this. If there is any hope of curbing the takeover of the country by the Democratic party, it’s to breakdown on immigration and start taking aim at the media giants and monopolies—tech valley, I think, will soon be under scrutiny for this reason. If this sounds partisan, just sit back and remember a few things: major Democratic leaders slandered Kavanaugh during his hearings and propped up a liar purely to suit their political agenda; Democratic leaders like Maxine Waters have called for public hounding—arguably violence—against Republican congressmen; Democratic leaders have given platforms and sympathy to radicals who loudly proclaim “Abolish I.C.E.” as if I.C.E. is America’s gestapo unit; Democratic leaders are all cozied up to the handful of people who run the entertainment industry, the major internet sites, and the mainstream news establishments, all so they can be turned into mouthpieces for their own ridiculous agenda.
These people are not your friends. They aren’t even their own friends. They are motivated by power and have ceased to bother attempting to conceal their unapologetic disgust for the American identity. These midterms did not teach us anything new, but for those who had any lingering doubts after 2016, those doubts should have now been driven firmly from your mind.
Sorry for the infrequency. Been a rough couple of days at home managing a few real-life projects and family obligations. I expect to make a post related to one of these things in the future, but as yet it’s too early to start.
I have a lot of content planned for the coming few weeks for both this site and the main blog, so stay tuned. Hopefully I can get a few of the recordings done that I’ve fallen behind on, as well.
