With Trump’s recent comments on immigration and how we must have more, neocons and alt-lites protected the president by telling us that rhetoric does not matter. It’s action that does, they say. While I agree action matters much more than the words a person spews out, it should be stressed that rhetoric does have an effect, especially that of the president’s. And no, I am not talking about offending Mexicans.
We must remember that millions of Americans, particularly that are somewhat politically informed, listen to the president and what he has to say. He goes on live tv and gives his spill. It would be foolish to think that does nothing, because it does. Our movement requires us to convince our neighbors, it requires us to change their hearts and minds to our side. We have to fight the brainwashing and “give the redpill” so to speak.
Well, Trump could be a great tool to do that. He could use his platform and agency to echo our views or at least not echo those of neocons — that isn’t what has been happening. Instead, Trump has done exactly what we need him not to do. He has (recently) been virtue-signaling for the left, saying we need even more legal immigrants — as many as possible. Of course leftists want this because it weakens the nation. Neocons want it because it strengthens their wallet. We don’t want it for those exact reasons. Trump isn’t doing a very good job of standing up for his base. In fact, he might even be said to be betraying us, hence why Andrew Yang is popular among the alt-right/dissident right, whatever you wish to call it.
–Say hello to your president(s)!
Let’s remind ourselves that Trump’s campaign rhetoric was harsh (for American politics at least) but it had a great effect. It propelled him into the spotlight and once he had won, led to a sharp temporary decrease in immigration. Trump has changed his rhetoric now, significantly. If we were back in 2016 I honestly don’t see how he would have won over Ted Cruz. He just doesn’t stand out when he panders and basically begs for approval. It’s pathetic, but that’s who we have in office.
The key thing to remember is that Trump’s “little” comments are not to be looked over. His actions don’t redeem him very well either. The idea Trump would save us was naïve in the first place though, and I think we all know it, especially now. Let’s be clear, if we stand a chance to win through the electoral process, it will likely only come with a third-party, a Southern party.
With a party like that we could do a lot of good for our cause, even if we don’t grow to dominate Southern politics. One effect that will grant us immediate and meaningful results is the rhetoric. Not only will we have a platform to push our narrative, we could have leaders that — even if they don’t win — could lead our communities toward betterment. Think about it, no more getting stuck with neocon candidates as the lesser of two evils. True problems can be addressed in places outside of the internet and Republicans will be forced to address them as well. Neocons dominate many of our districts, mostly because the establishment doesn’t allow for true nationalists to enter politics. They wouldn’t have a choice if we had a third-party. Public speeches could also be gotten with much more ease than today because we would be more legitimate and antifa could legally be accounted for. Sure, they would still descend on us like the wolves they are, but an organized front would do much better against them than loosely organized individuals like the alt-right is now. For a movement that stresses organized, healthy, collectivism so much, this would only make sense and I think a lot of Southerners are hungry for it. Chris McDaniels shows that.
“But what about splitting they vote!? You can’t do that!”
There is an easy solution to this: don’t run presidential candidates. Evidently can’t win the presidency with anyone who will truly look out for our interests so it would be useless anyhow. Of course, splitting the vote is still an issue in gubernatorial and senatorial elections but pushing candidates for key seats that we have a chance in is much better than allowing neocons or outright leftists to get into office. In states like Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, governors cannot be run by a Southern party if it hopes to win unless the state operates an election system like that of California (which is a dangerous route), but candidates could still reasonably be managed in more conservative states like Tennessee and Alabama. Why get stuck with traitorous neocons? We have even more to gain in local and Congressional elections where deeply conservative districts get put up with neocons that care little about our people. There is no excuse for this and if we wish to make the most out of the system we are currently under, it would be wise to create an independent party our people can use to at the very least lobby for our interests.
With recent outrage over Trump’s comments, I think the best solution is not Andrew Yang, a leftist who is in all honesty only popular because he recognizes Whites are going through tough times. The best solution is to get our own people elected and stop relying on others like Yankee businessmen or Chinamen.
