Trump’s New Era:
Look Out, There’s A Monster Coming
The election is over. It has Taken President-elect Trump but little time to signal that his coming is a New Era. The hot house incestuous Left took even less time to throw a hissy fit, rioting in the streets while physically abusing Trump voters as they shouted about how democratic they are.
The media reacted to the Trump peril in their typical way bemoaning the fact that the Left’s era was over, at least temporarily. After distorting Trump’s proposed policies to nonsense pre-election the media isn’t now prepared to deal with the fact that Trump is actually putting those policies into effect now.
The ever obtuse editor of the Wall Street Journal, Bret Stephens, either pretends not to understand or is too thick to understand what Trump means by putting US interests first. Mr. Stephens asked what I presume is the rhetorical question: [WSJ 11/11/16] “What real American, after all, wouldn’t put “American first” in his political priorities?” Mr. Stephens is apparently ignorant that our outgoing president, Barack Obama, put every country’s interests before the US. Not being overly familiar with US history Mr. Stephens is also unaware that Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who one might describe as a ‘real American’, put British and Jewish interests first before ours by driving us into the most destructive war in the history of the world. Obviously you don’t have to be a ‘Domestic Terrorist’ knuckledragger to subordinate US interests to others, you can be a ‘real American.’
Therefore Mr. Stephens is hysterically vocal in his opposition to Trump’s appointment as counsel of Stephen Bannon. Mr. Stephens snidely says quote: “Mr. Bannon also says his “America first” which- see if you can spot the difference- either is or isn’t “America First.”
In my opinion there is no difference, small f or capital F. The idea is that we not look to others’ interests in preference to our own as Obama and FDR did. A crime in Mr. Stephens’ eyes. Mr. Stephens apparently applauds that China and Mexico are being made rich at the expense of the US working stiff.
As incestuous as the Left is Mr. Stephens then not so closely associates one he detests with one he hates. He says:
As my colleague Bari Weiss pointed out in a recent article in Tablet, the foremost figure in today’s alt-right, Richard Spencer, dreams of “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans. It would be a new society based on very different ideals than, say, the Declaration of Independence.” [Mr. Stephens gives no indication of where he obtained the quote. Sloppy journalism WSJ.]
Mr. Spencer’s vision may not be Mr. Bannon’s. But the new found political power of the latter will inevitably open channels for the former.
That’s an interesting quote. For those not aware Tablet Ezine is a rabid anti-Trump orthodox Jewish site that promotes the ethno-State of Israel that has very different ideals than, say, The Declaration of Independence. So Mr. Stephens isn’t against ethno-States in principle he merely opposes a European ethno-State. Such bigotry on the page of the WSJ!!!!
He ends his quote with the paranoid fear that Mr. Bannon is ‘inevitably opening channels’ for a European ethno-State. G-d forbid. Watch out! There’s an anti-Semite coming. Or even more fearsome creatures, the Godzilla of them all:
In “The Second Coming” Yeats asked, “What rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?” The answer may yet turn out to be the likes of Steve Bannon and his ugly little litter of neo-nationalists.
Look again Mr. Stephens, re-read Poe’s The System Of Dr. Tarr And Professor Fether. Those aren’t monsters coming Mr. Stephens, those are the asylum keepers escaped to put the hot house loonies back in their bins. Worse luck still, hey?
