A people is not a transitory sum of individuals. It is not a chance aggregate. It is a reunion of inheritors of a specific fraction of human history, who, on the basis of the sense of common adherence, develop the will to pursue their own history and give themselves a common destiny.
America’s domestic enemies, the Liberal and Progressives, have always loathed nationalism, which they find atavistic. And, they’ve recently gone off in a paroxysm of hysterical hate of populism…well, populism other than their own. But, as the Left has issues putting things together, it took supposed conservatives to make the phrase “National Populism.”
And, of course, these supposed conservatives – who are really just bitter, clinging remnants of the #NeverTrump crowd – paint national populism as a horrid and ugly thing.
National Populism – It’s Not The Ugly Thing They Claim
Personally, I find great beauty in what the supposed conservatives declaim as National Populism, great beauty indeed. To my mind, when greatness comes to America it will be draped in our flag.
Oh, and in case there’s some confusion, I am belittling the viewpoints and fears of the #NeverTrump crowd just as I belittle those of their fellow travelers, the deranged snowflakes and crybullies crying #NotMyPresident.
A lot of people on the Left, and some few on the right, make a lot of noise about how Donald Trump is the new Hitler. Trump’s not, of course; he’s not even close to Hitler in agenda or rhetoric.
But, let’s play along with their fantasies as a thought exercise.
If Trump is Hitler, It Is Because Obama Created Weimar America
If Trump is like Hitler, his being so and being the likely Republican nominee for POTUS is, or should be, an expected event that is predicated by Germany’s own history. Obama and the various Congressional Democrats, along with their ever-angry constituency have created Weimar America. Hence, the rise of someone to fill Hitler’s to bring it to an end and “make the nation great again” was almost a foregone conclusion.
Trump and Trump’s power and popularity exists now because Obama & Co. is responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which created a climate that brought seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something his people never dreamed of except in their nightmares.
Of Course, You’ll Never Convince The SJWs Of That
Not that is at all possible to convince the Liberals, Progressives, and their various minority tenants of this fact. These Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) have been too well indoctrinated for too long by certain sorts who see a personal advantage in a fundamentally changed and weakened America for them to be deprogrammed at this point.
Worse though than their woeful indoctrination is that sad fact that these SJWs are so weak and pathetic that they truly equate Trump with Hitler. They have all been from birth given so much and had so little expected of them that they actually see and refusal to give them more or expect more from them as oppression on the scale of Nazi Germany.
So to them Trump is Hitler, even though he is actually closer to being a reflection of someone dear to their hearts and minds.
Trump Is Americans’ Obama
Yes, Trump is not Hitler; Trump is Americans’ Obama, which is unsurprising given the fact that the Obama Regime inadvertently created him as an overt political force. Just turn Obama on his head and change his color – it always has to come down to color with the Left, never character or its lack – and you have Donald Trump.
Trump, just like Obama before him, is a demagogue with grand and resonating rhetoric and equally grand promises and populist appeal. The only difference is the populace he resonated with. Also, much as Obama, Trump’s rhetoric and promises aren’t too well grounded in reality or what is possible for a POTUS to accomplish.
Truthfully, I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m not a great fan of demagogues as so few have the substance or intent to fulfill their promises. Yet, I cannot deny the importance to Americans seeing a candidate that looks and sounds like them and who speaks what they the speak. If nothing else, Trump is a needed message to America’s domestic enemies that we will not go gently and meekly into the night.
Obama, in an increasingly desperate bid to keep his job, has jumped on the slackers of the Occupy Wall St.’s bandwagon now that his handlers have convinced him that the movement is off the ground.
Of course Obama and his handlers forgot to check to see if “off the ground” really meant “up on blocks” before trying to harness the neo-Socialist class warfare of these rabble.
That’s the problem with old saying like, “jump on the bandwagon.” They often don’t workout so well in reality. Face it, Obama and his coterie would “hitch their wagon to a star” only to have it implode into a brown dwarf. 😆
Poor little Obama; he’s not quite as happy being the – titular in his case – leader of the Free World as he seems to have thought he’d be.
“I just miss — I miss being anonymous,” he said at the meeting in the White House State Dining Room. “I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. I can’t take a walk.”
He says he enjoys golf but is not the fanatic that some have portrayed him to be because of the frequency of his golf outings.
“It’s the only excuse I have to get outside for four hours at a stretch,” he told the Hearst executives.
His impossible dream: “I just want to go through Central Park (in New York) and watch folks passing by…Spend the whole day watching people. I miss that.”
— President Barack Obama
Cry me a river, boy – then throw yourself into it, which would serve more purpose and a greater good than these pathetic attempts at garnering populist sympathy.
