Disconnected

To quote Johnny Rotten: not a trace. No reality.

Never in modern times has there been such a disconnect between the opposition party and the realities of national life. The very talk of removing Trump, without evidence of an impeachable offense, is a stick in the eye to history and most Americans.

To be clear, the disconnect is not the product of policy differences, though they exist too. This is instead a mass outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome that, for those infected, can be cured only by undoing the results of the 2016 election.

And if by some lightning strike they succeed, then what? Impeach President Mike Pence, too?

How does any of this help the country address its infrastructure needs, reform entitlement programs or ensure better schools and more opportunities? And what message does it send to our allies and adversaries about America’s resolve?

The questions answer themselves. The relentless fixation on impeachment is a destructive decision that sacrifices national progress and security on the altar of partisan madness.

Well, to be fair, the Democrat-Marxists care not a whit for either of those things.

Paralysis by politics, of course, is a bipartisan disease, and Trump is not immune. His decision to force a partial government shutdown over border wall funding followed warnings that he was on the verge of betraying a key promise to his supporters.

But that doesn’t make both sides equally wrong.

No, it certainly doesn’t. On that last point, this sort of thing just annoys the living hell out of me:

THE L.A. TIMES IS PRETTY COOL WITH ANTI-SEMITISM, APPARENTLY: Can you admire Louis Farrakhan and still advance the cause of women? Maybe so. Life is full of contradictions.

As Drew McCoy tweets, “Replace ‘anti-Semite’ with ‘anti-Muslim’ and see if this piece gets published.”

Yet another reminder that the alt-right and the mainstream left are the mirror images of each other.

That’s Ed Driscoll making with the false equivalence in bold above; I’ve seen him do it several times, and he’s by no means the only one guilty of it.

By yielding to the Left’s denunciation of the former alt-right as being composed exclusively of “Nazis,” “fascists,” and “white supremacists,” the milquetoasts nominally on our side have shot themselves—and us—in the foot yet again. The term “alt-right” itself has been forever poisoned by a misguided eagerness on the part of Doormat Rightists to score points with the Left by proving their docility and reasonableness to them. It’s exactly the sort of thing that made a fool of Juanny Maverick a thousand and one times, that killed the Tea Party movement a-borning. It’s futile. It’s stupid. And it ain’t even close to the truth.

Sorry, cucks, but one of these things is NOT like the other. The alt-right, whatever and whoever it might represent now, is in no way a “mirror image” of the Left. The Left is seditious, treacherous, underhanded, and violent. They hate America That Was in its every particular: its values, its traditions, its strength, its prosperity, its influence. They hate the white males who founded it, built it, and made it work. They want it destroyed forever—ALL of it—and replaced with a collectivist tyranny firmly in control of every single aspect of our lives. ALL of our lives, every one of us.

The alt-right is, or was, NONE of those things. Not ONE. Period. Fucking. DOT. To pretend otherwise is a mug’s game, a fool’s errand, and suicidal. How can it possibly be that so many of us still can’t understand that the Left can never be defeated by continuing to play their game, by their rules?

The funny thing is, the desire to disassociate and distinguish themselves from the half-assed Loser Right is the very reason the alt-rightists started calling themselves that in the first place. Now they’re trying again with Derb’s newly-minted Dissident Right, which I actually like better anyway. We’ll soon see how long it takes the cucks and schmucks to fuck that up for us too, I guess.

  1. While I agree that Trump would not/will not get The People a wall without the shutdown and that it exposes the Democrats for the out of touch bunch that they are, there is ample blame to be spread around in the GOP (I won’t dignify the GOP by claiming that they’re Trump’s own party). They had two years of control in both the house and Senate to accomplish legislation for the wall and to repeal ACA. What did they do? Absolutely effing nothing. Oh, Oh, Oh they managed to repeal the individual mandate portion of ACA you say ? BFD. Trump’s agenda was torpedoed by Pussy Ryan and Bitch McConnell. Why, just because he’s not “one of them”.

    Now that the Dems are back in control of the House, he’ll get nothing done but exposing their agenda that puts The People last in their priorities. They’d rather have open borders, perpetual war and welfare for any non-citizens that decide they’d rather live in the USA than fight to fix what’s wrong with own countries. I hope this budget impasse lasts until the Federal elections in 2020. The Dems will be DONE by then.

  2. “How can it possibly be that so many of us still can’t understand that the Left can never be defeated by continuing to play their game, by their rules?”

    This, of course, assumes those who play it this way really WANT to win and aren’t just another shell in the game of 3 card monty.

  3. Driscoll will only need a tiny push to go back to being an Anti-Trumper like he was in 2016.

    Letting people like him, Althouse, and others crap up Instapundit lost him my clicks years ago, though Sarah Hoyt lends a bit of class still.

    On the larger issue, I don’t even have a name for what I am anymore … not a conservative, ’cause there is very little of America left to conserve; right and left are pretty meaningless at this point; what, then ?
    A patriot, a Jeffersonian, … I dunno. Names need to be Rectified, anyway.
