That the Trump presidency is bedeviled is undeniable.
As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates.
Interview by Hubert Collins
Sam G. Dickson has been a white activist for longer than many in our movement have been alive. On Sunday, July 30, as at every American Renaissance conference, he will be the closing speaker.
In this extended interview, Mr. Dickson reflects on his experiences and observations, and ends with advice for others who share his commitment to our people.
Idealists may not like it, but politics is a transaction. I support politicians I think will do something for me and the people I care about. Therefore, I could not be less interested in the endless parade of accusations and speculations about what certain Russians might or might not have done to help elect Donald Trump. No matter what the answer is, I don’t care. J.M. Bernays at The Baffler has convincingly described the liberal frenzy over this:
[A]t this point, the empirical question of whether or not it happened is secondary to the deeper psychological need for media pundits, policy wonks, and the professional-managerial strata to maintain their sense of self when the objective historical conditions in which they flourished are being actively dissolved. For liberals, the continued libidinal investment in the drama of the as-yet invisible Trump-Russia scandal actively blocks any realization that the neoliberal order they are trying to restore is already dead on its feet, and that Trump is the uniquely bizarre American expression of a visible worldwide trend: the virulent, deepening nationalist backlash against a financially-integrated global economy based on the relatively free movement of commodities and people. His ascent is a death knell for an entire era and the basic assumptions about economic and political life that shape the worldview of contemporary liberals.
Mr. Bernays is wordy, but he’s right. Liberals want the verdict to be treason because Mr. Trump would be removed and, they hope, things would go back to normal. Just like Republicans who wanted to believe Barack Obama was born in Kenya, they think that by revealing this one key truth the damage of the last election will be undone!
If it will help the media and liberals get over this delusion, let me be clear: I and the overwhelming majority of Trump-supporters don’t care at all about this Russia business. Even if—and it sounds unlikely—Russia undermined American democracy to help elect Mr. Trump, I still don’t care.
Mr. Trump and Russia do not want to bring hordes of Muslims into our cities. They will not pass “hate speech” laws that could put me in prison. A President Trump elected by Russians is still better than a Hillary Clinton elected by “Americans.” I want my grandchildren to live in a country where they are not a despised and oppressed minority. A President Clinton would have done everything to ensure that happens.
Should we set aside our petty differences since we are all Americans and we all believe in the democratic system?
No. It’s only by inertia that is still one country. If each state, or even each region, magically became a sovereign nation tomorrow, there would be no movement to unite into one bigger nation. The only thing that keeps us together is that secession is messy.
At the American Renaissance office, we sometimes get phone calls and email from folks threatening to kill us. They are never from Russians. They are almost always from blacks, and sometimes from white ethno-masochists. I would rather not live in the same country with those people; the United States should have dissolved long ago.
Conservatives talk about “civic nationalism” or “patriotism,” but what do those words even mean? I would rather my children went to a public school in Moscow as the only American, than to a public school in Washington DC or Los Angeles as the only white. In the current year, “citizenship” is just a social construct.
Maybe the next time a liberal complains about Russians stealing the election, I should say, “Boy I hope they did. It’d be comforting to know there’s a powerful white nation looking out for us.”
Ever since Trump was elected President, the Left has been throwing a collective fit, marching and protesting nonstop. And the media has been having a complete meltdown. (How could the electorate not follow our advice?)
This is exactly what children do when they don’t get their way: throw a tantrum.
(The Right didn’t throw this kind of tantrum when Obama got elected. Two years into his Presidency, after he showed his true colors, the Tea Party emerged. They held some quiet, orderly rallies, and that was pretty much it.)
The Left uses any excuse to riot. They are currently doing it in Hamburg, at the G-20 summit. They set cars on fire, smash store windows, throw Molotov cocktails, throw things at policemen, and in general just wreak as much havoc as they can.
This is the behavior of juvenile delinquents. (Though JD’s aren’t vain enough to attribute their destructive impulses to a higher purpose.)
The Left prevents conservatives from speaking on campus.
Children scream over you so you can’t be heard, or cover their ears and screech, “I can’t hear you!”
Since many on the Left seem incapable of logical argument, they resort to name-calling instead. (“Racist!” “Sexist!” “Homophobe!”)
That’s exactly how children argue, by name-calling.
Various members of the Left will sporadically threaten to leave the country if the Republican is elected President.
This is what spoiled children do: say they’re going to hold their breath until they turn blue if they don’t get their way.
The Left expects the government to provide them a decent living in return for doing nothing.
Sorta like a child getting an allowance.
The Left does an awful lot of virtue-signaling. They recite the correct beliefs, so as to communicate how good they are. (And they always seem to beam with pride as they do so.)
This is exactly how a teacher’s pet acts.
The Left, more than anything else, conforms. They are terrified at the thought that they might say something politically incorrect and someone might accuse them of being racist or sexist or homophobic.
Children are said to be particularly vulnerable to peer pressure.
Various members of the Show Biz Left have talked about bombing the White House, or shooting Trump, or have symbolically decapitated him. They don’t actually mean it; Trump was in no danger from any of these Hollywood loudmouths. But they did love to playact.
This is what children do: play make believe games, like GI Joe, or cops and robbers.
The Left has tried to portray Donald Trump as the second coming of Adolf Hitler.
Children create bogeymen whom they can be afraid of.
The more you think about it, the clearer it becomes that many on the Left simply got stuck in infantile mode.
They need to grow up.
Douglas Murray, The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2017, 343 pp., $23.40.
This is an important book. Something remarkable has happened when a prominent British author and associate editor of The Spectator begins a volume with these words: “Europe is committing suicide.” On the first page, Douglas Murray explains that this is suicide by immigration and that “by the end of the lifespans of most people currently alive, Europe will not be Europe and the peoples of Europe will have lost the only place in the world we had to call home.” Few authors express so passionate a love Europe or such a keen sense of what could be lost. Perhaps none has so ably described the lies, cowardice, self-loathing, and lassitude that have set calamity in motion.
