A proudly unreconstructed Southron speaks his piece.
Last night, like many Americans, I was shocked to see that former President of the United States, Donald Trump, had his home raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This is a profound turning point in Western history. For the better part of the past two centuries, the U.S. has enjoyed unprecedented stability because it did not raid the homes of political rivals. The rest of the democratic world looked upon the United States as a model for successful representative government. To watch a politically motivated raid on a former president essentially showed the rest of the world that the U.S. is no longer the model it claimed to be. It so devastatingly rotten to its very core that anyone with eyes can see that unelected officials run the United States – not the people… not its representatives… not its Constitution.
For those who hate Trump, it is important to note that this raid is more than just Trump. Trump is a polarizing figure in American politics. Trump is also a billionaire. This is not an ordinary, well intentioned political protester who walked the Halls of Congress on January 6th getting hunted down by the FBI a year later at his plumbing job. This is a powerful person in his own right with nearly seventy-five million supporters. The fact that they can attempt the gulag treatment on Trump should be a massive wake-up to any powerless, ordinary citizen with an unpopular view. They are coming for you, next.
…The United States was founded on a core principle that elections would be respected as the will of the people. The Declaration of Independence stated, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” As such, the very establishment of the United States was a rebuke to the prevailing governments of the time – unaccountable monarchies – to the wishes of the voting citizenry. Southern Nationalists would argue that the consent of the governed was destroyed in 1865. Regardless, the façade of an elected representative government endured until now.
In 2016, the citizenry chose Donald Trump. For four years, the unelected entities harassed and targeted the will of the people, showing their disdain for the American voter. In effect, unelected bureaucrats with political allies conspired to deprive the consent of the governed – and the chosen representatives of the United States charged with guarding that consent, failed. They abrogated their responsibility to those who elected them because they lacked both the courage and moral fortitude to protect the people’s choice. When given the opportunity to hold unelected officials accountable for their undemocratic actions, those people failed.
They failed to protect the right of dissidents to express their personal conscience at Charlottesville. They failed to hold accountable those individuals who manipulated the FISA Courts to weaponize the FBI against the candidate of a major political party. They failed to defend those who peacefully protested on January 6th, 2021. They have failed at every single level. Their failures and lack of courage empowered and encouraged unelected officials to crush the inherent rights of the American people.
The raid on Trump is not about Trump. The raid on Trump is a coup against arguably the most successful republic in history. Washington, DC, is overthrowing the rights you thought you had. They are driving a nail in the coffin of republican governance (little ‘R’). They are showing you that they are the power, not you, the voting citizen. Attacking Trump is all about proving to the little guy that he is powerless. If you elect the wrong person, we will remove him – and then you.
The United States is dead. It cannot be revived. This is the regime flexing on you, the worthless American voter. The choice is simple: stay on the Titanic as its newfound masters order you to swab the decks of oncoming water or jump ship by means of secession. If you wish to keep the United States intact, so be it. You should move to a Yankee blue state and enjoy the future that your demographic replacement will ensure. You might as well get used to those laws now. Meanwhile, if you are a Southerner flying the American flag, you are part of the problem. The most important flag flying over your home should be your state flag. Displaying imagery that expresses your bended knee toward Washington, DC, is an indication of your loyalties. You have chosen the Union over the Founding Principles. You have chosen elected bureaucrats over your own people. You have shown that when we need you, you will not be there for us.
The raid on Trump should be a wake-up call that the Yankee government cannot be reformed. It is gone. The Constitution will not protect him. The Constitution will not protect you. Secession will.
I dunno if I can be too terribly sanguine about that last bit. After all, it certainly didn’t do the trick for us last time it was tried. As for the rest of it, yes indeedy—indubitably, unimpeachably correct, every last syllable of it.
