Fear, and loathing

Smells like…victory.

What explains the hysteria of the establishment?

In a word, fear.

The establishment is horrified at the Donald’s defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority.

It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.

Having fixed the future, the establishment finds half of the country looking upon it with the same sullen contempt that our Founding Fathers came to look upon the overlords Parliament sent to rule them.

Yet, some of us recall another time, when Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas wrote in “Points of Rebellion”:

“We must realize that today’s Establishment is the new George III. Whether it will continue to adhere to his tactics, we do not know. If it does, the redress, honored in tradition, is also revolution.”

Baby-boomer radicals loved it, raising their fists in defiance of Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew.

But now that it is the populist-nationalist right that is moving beyond the niceties of liberal democracy to save the America they love, elitist enthusiasm for “revolution” seems more constrained.

What goes around comes around.

Indeed it does. And the lamentations and spluttering outrage of the Establishment malefactors is as music to my ears. Vox adds the coda:

Donald Trump is not the savior. Donald Trump is not the movement. Donald Trump is the warning. It makes very little difference if he is elected or not. Because, as Mike Cernovich points out in the bestselling MAGA MINDSET, Trump is merely the symbol of the moment. There will be more to come.

Precisely so. Play it, Sam.

  1. Is it really fear? As much as I like Buchanan and admire his work, I don’t think that America can be saved. I hope and pray Trump wins as that may buy us time, but that’s about all we can expect – even if he builds the wall and deports a significant number of illegals.

    The (((left))) still controls infotainment and their ability to indoctrinate millions. The (((left))) controls education and can forcibly indoctrinate children. They do not ever give up or give in and they are implacable foes. They are united in a way the right is not – as proven by the present election.

    Yes, I wish Pat was right. But, I remember the “Reagan Revolution” that defeated the evil empire but changed nothing domestically. I remember the “Contract with America” that brought the GOP to power in the House where they had not been the majority in 50 years. I remember 2000 when the so-called “conservative” GOP controlled the House, Senate and Presidency and it changed nothing to our advantage. The Tea Party changed the political landscape in House and Senate without changing the resulting legislation.

    Is there any reason to hope for the United States as presently configured? This is what we must ask and then act accordingly.
