Ok folks, Donald J. Trump is going to be our next president. If you are like me, you know that this is not good. You are tired of the racist alt-right cringe, you know that millions of poorly educated, permanently angry self professing perma-victims feel as though they’ve “taken their country back” and that Trump, their golden savior, is claiming he is going to promptly erect an American version of the Berlin wall on the southern border of the United States.
You know that due to Trumps election, there is a giant basket full of bigoted racist loudmouth deplorables feeling emboldened, vindicated, validated and worse yet… empowered. You know that, at times, these deplorables are not only despicable, but as we’ve seen in the cases of Dylan Roof and Anders Breivik…unapologetically violent. There’s nothing like a good dose of “the blacks are takin’ muh white women” or “the muzzies and the marxiss joooz are conquering Europe” to get the particularly deranged and violence prone individuals of the Alt-right to initiate a shooting rampage.
In other words…it’s bad. The fact that Americans have chosen to elect what is essentially an alt-right mascot into the highest position of influence any single individual can hold in all of western society is an unmitigated disaster. In order to put it into context, consider the following.
Donald trump, was on the Alex jones show.
Donald trump will be our president, and he decided it was acceptable to be a guest on a show with a conspiracy swilling, batshit insane, creationist moron who could find a conspiracy in a bowl of fruit loops. The president-elect of the United States of America told Alex Jones that he will “not disappoint him”.
The man who will be in charge of foreign policy in America told Alex jones, a man who thinks there is an international cabal of “globalists” trying to usher in a one world government and currency, that he will not disappoint him. Let that sink in…
Over the last two years I have studied the rise of the alt-right, and come to one general conclusion. They are a hive mind of meme-spreaders whom, while previously confined to the bowels of the internet, have spilled out into meat-space and are ready, willing and capable of spreading patently untrue statements with unwavering dedication and religious fervor.
If tomorrow, their conspiracy du-jour becomes the belief that gravity is a plot by the zionist jews against their amorphous totem…. “muh family unit”, then they will set about in making it so. They will congregate on social media, they will repeat it over and over and over and through sheer force of repetition, it will come to be believed by huge numbers of alt-righters. it is as though the more patently false the conspiracy meme they choose to perpetuate is, the more religious zealotry they adopt in its propagation.
This, folks, is how we arrived here…
And here as well.
Yes People, the situation may seem pretty bleak, an ever-growing cacophony of bigots emboldened by their 70 year old cheeto-jesus whom will shortly be the most powerful man on the planet is cause for concern. But it is not the end of the world. In fact it is (although it may not look it presently) the beginning of a MASSIVE course correction.
Understand one thing, Nature seeks balance, society tends to naturally correct extremism. Currently the alt-right seems fresh, new, and particularly tantalizing to the olfactory receptors of your average bigot. The pungent aroma of Trump beckons to these folks that it is time to let their bigot flags fly, trump is a form of catnip to the deplorables of the world. they are in a state of euphoria right now, celebrating their victories, and in their celebration it is important to note that we will find chinks in their armor and trickling drops of complacency that will one day, become rivers of complacency.
It is now our Job to patiently wait for the alt-right to get fat off of thief victories, and slowly but surely get them to remove their armor and expose their soft underbelly.
How will we do this? By understanding that In order for the alt right to exist and to function and to perpetuate itself, it needs to be seen as anti-establishment. Donald trumps unfortunate but stunning victory has catapulted the alt-right square into the iron throne as it were.
They have control of the house and senate, they have the presidency, they ARE the establishment now.
Two years from now when it becomes clear that Trump is not going to build his silly wall, that he wont be putting “crooked Hillary” in jail, and that he does not intend to “drain the swamp” but intends instead to bathe in it and savor its toxic sludge the alt-right will inevitably begin the process of turning on itself. All that we need to do is be vigilant, fight them politically and record their bigotry where we can and…
Until then I ask that you join me in documenting the deplorables, day by day, bit by bit, until they have no choice but to slowly squirm back into the toxic sludge they hatched out of…
