Liberal men: misogynist, violent little brats

My most recent post delved into the issue of the woman-hating nature of the liberal male as it relates to reproduction, and partially to the vitriol non-liberal women are treated to by these creatures, in the form of intimidating, vituperative verbal barrages when the non-liberal female should express unsanctioned political beliefs; a phenomenon that any outspoken, socially conservative, anti-globalist, XX-chromosomed person surely has first-hand experience of.

Well, it appears the methods of the virulently misogynist left are in the process of evolving from “just” aggressive verbal abuse to non-compliant women (which is appalling enough) into outright physical violence. Just last night, a female Trump-supporter was attacked with pepper spray by a left-wing “protester” (violent Stalinist thug) who had helped force the University of California in Berkeley to cancel a speech by libertarian personality, Milo Yiannopoulos (who I am not a fan of, but that’s not the point), while she was being interviewed by a reporter. Let’s boil the story down to its bare bones: a woman was physically assaulted by a man for having a certain set of political views.

This has, understandably, shocked all decent, moral people who have heard about it, but the more I think about it, the more I think that, actually, it is not that shocking at all. We already live in a society where it is commonplace for men to stand eyeball-to-eyeball with women and scream in their face (which is socially acceptable, so long as he subscribes to the correct ideology); we live in a society that teaches boys when they are growing up that women are just the targets of sexual conquests. And to add the rotten cherry to the whole stinking, mouldy, maggot-infested cake of modern pseudo-parenting, we live in an era saturated by pornography, which is increasingly violent and misogynistic in nature; which causes men’s brains to degenerate; and which is only ever a few clicks away for children whose parents spend 34 minutes per day with them, and who have smartphones before they’ve even started school, because apathetic parents find such devices useful in distracting their naturally energetic small children, so they can get on and do the really important things, like watch Emmerdale and message their friends on Facebook.

Additionally, increasingly, being conservative (or even just non-liberal) relegates one to the status of subhuman; a grotesque monster, to be detested, jeered at, and yes, persecuted; violently, if necessary. After all, conservatives – male or female – deserve it, because they’re, like, evil. Thusly, anyone who has ever observed a romantic relationship involving a leftist male will affirm that, in the vast majority of cases, an unhealthy, domineering, psychologically abusive dynamic exists, with the man being the dominant party. Several years ago, I knew a young lady who was in a romantic relationship with a man. The girl was a liberal, but she was a very nice person who I liked, but who clearly lack self-esteem and confidence; a lamb to the slaughter, as liberal, libertine men prey on damaged females, because women with proper self-esteem do not tolerate being treated poorly. This girl’s boyfriend treated her very badly, before she eventually dumped him: he would casually belittle her in front of other people, intentionally making hurtful, derogatory statements; and he would also flirt with other people in front of her. This sort of example is far from uncommon, and the truly amusing thing is that this cretin assuaged what tiny little crumb of a conscience he had by being a left-wing extremist, virtue-signalling about feminism (yes, really), multiculturalism, green politics, and so on. Leftist men know that society gives them a free reign to treat people as hideously as they like, so long as they stay within the confines of the law (which is becoming softer and softer over the generations) and espouse the correct political beliefs.

So, when you consider the confluence of the factors in the preceding paragraphs, men being violent towards women on political grounds is not really that surprising at all. In fact, it’s inevitable. You simply cannot raise generations of badly-parented, empathy-impaired, porn-addicted boys who think women are simply walking sex objects and expect them to blossom into civilised young gentleman; you cannot expect men who have been raised in a culture that devalues women and conservatives to behave civilly towards, err, conservative women. I do not believe humans start off as totally blank slates – I believe we are born with genetic predilections – but it is clear that our early years are absolutely crucial in forming the type of person we become, and can override a lot of the genetic programming we are blessed / cursed with. There are people out there who were born with perfectly healthy brains, who have been turned into psychopaths. Likewise, there are people who were born with brains neurologically similar to those of psychopaths, but who have developed – through good, nurturing, loving parenting – empathy and the ability to consider other people’s needs. So while genetics play a role, we cannot just blame traits that we do not like in people on their DNA, and doing so is not helpful. We have to look at their formative years, and we have to reassess the way we ‘do’ parenting.

Most men know, instinctively, that we do not physically hurt women. It’s an unspoken covenant that is unbreakable if one wishes to be able to participate properly in society – wife-beaters and rapists are never forgiven. Even most men who are otherwise very licentious and very inconsiderate of women fully understand that male-on-female violence is a line that cannot be crossed, without severe, life-ruining consequences. So something has to have gone very, very wrong for a man to even think of attacking a woman; there is a fundamental, key component of humanity and masculinity that is missing in men who raise a finger against a woman. It is appalling, hideous, unforgivable, but given the way society is structured, its manifold and manifest deficiencies, and its lazy, apathetic, amoral, borderline-psychotic method of raising children, combined with the fact that our culture is an incubator of genuine hatred towards anyone with remotely conservative views, it can’t be too much of a surprise. I am not excusing men who are violent towards women: I genuinely hate them, and while my Christian duty compels me to forgive those who genuinely repent, I admit that I am not perfect, and I can’t. I’m offering an analysis on what makes these men the way they are, so that we can avoid the mistakes of our parents and grandparents, and raise the next generation of male children to be emotionally healthy, empathetic people, which greatly reduces the risk of misogynistic violence.

Such politically motivated male-on-female violence is still far from being widely accepted, but the signs are there that it is on the way to being accepted. Think I am being hyperbolic? 60 years ago, the crude, base way in which many men today talk about (and to) women was wholly socially unacceptable. In 2017, this language is considered normal. Our culture and our society is degenerating rapidly, on a daily basis, and so we – people who stand for traditional morality, civility, and decency – have to be prepared to adjust to whatever the new ‘normal’ is in the future. So what are we going to do about this problem? Because our wives, daughters, mothers, sisters, and friends are living in a society that is increasingly dangerous for them. One of the foundational principles of masculinity is that men defend women and children. We are living in dark times, infused with all sorts of dangerous people, and they need us more than ever.

Liberal men: misogynist little brats

In the wake of the inauguration of President Donald Trump (don’t those three words sound good?), a series of highly publicised “Women’s Marches” (Soros-funded collective expressions of confused rage at nothing in particular) erupted across the Western world. Though mainly undertaken by radical feminist females who had been wound up by the media into thinking Trump was going to have them forcibly impregnated, or something, these marches were participated in by a fair amount of men – who self-identify as feminists – as well. So what motivated these men, these male feminists?

Though they claim to be very pro-female, and solely interested in defending and advancing women’s rights, my opinion is that this is a cynical ruse; a stratagem designed to win acceptance from the feminist movement, in order to advance their own aims, which are certainly anything but female-friendly. The focal point of the marches were centred around crude slogans such as “keep your tiny hands off my p***y” and “my uterus is not government property” (an absurd statement, given these people demand state-funded contraception); that is, the main thrust of the ‘arguments’ (and I am very generous in using that term) offered by the protesters was to further and retain access to birth control and abortion, given that President Trump and – especially – Vice-President Pence had just entered the White House.

This begs the question: why did a substantial number of left-wing men join in on these marches? Is it because they love and feel a deep respect for women? I do not think so, judging by the sheer, vile hatred that is dished out by liberal men to non-liberal women. A very close female friend of mine – a young girl, just out of university age, and not really interested in politics – told me that she made the fatal mistake of telling a liberal male in her workplace which way she voted in Britain’s EU referendum: Leave. She was set upon in a verbally aggressive way, and condemned for being racist, xenophobic, homophobic, claustrophobic, and LGBTQWERTYphobic; and this verbal assault understandably left her feeling very intimidated and upset. Such instances of genuinely misogynistic treatment towards non-liberal women from tolerant, enlightened men are very common (think of the names female politicians who are unpopular with liberals, like Margaret Thatcher or Theresa May, are called; or even media commentators, like Katie Hopkins; or how about Melania Trump, who gangs of liberal men threatened to rape on Twitter). Another female friend of mine was the recipient of an aggressive, abusive rant on a social media platform the other day, delivered by a left-wing man, simply because she expressed pro-life and anti-casual sex opinions; this left-wing man didn’t react nearly so strongly to another male who also expressed pro-life opinions, because they never do: liberal men are stinking cowards and bullies; and like all bullies, they pick on those they perceive as weaker than themselves. Liberal men are full of misogynistic rage, which they take out on women who dare to reject the liberal principles that the liberal man has demanded they believe in. Sounds like patriarchy, to me!

So, it is clear liberal feminist men are not motivated by an intrinsic love of womankind, given how appallingly ladies who think for themselves are treated. So what does motivate male feminists to scream and shout from the rooftops about how contraception and abortion (I thought men weren’t allowed an opinion on abortion, anyway? Must be only pro-life men that aren’t) are some sort of inherent, God-given right of women?

Put simply: selfishness. If we consider what contraception and abortion do, we come to the obvious conclusion that they establish and maintain the illusion of ‘safe’, sterile sex that doesn’t result in giving birth to a human child. Contraception disassociates sex from fertility by drastically (but definitely not completely) reducing the risk of a woman becoming pregnant; abortion – sold to women as a minor, non-invasive procedure with no lasting negative effects – is there as a fail-safe last resort, when the contraception doesn’t work. Without contraception and abortion, the illusion / delusion crumbles: the creative potential of a heterosexual union is made starkly apparent to both sexes, but particularly women, who see that casual sex is so risky that it is not worth partaking in – if you think about it, why on Earth would any woman risk not just pregnancy, but also being left high and dry to care for a baby on her own, just for five minutes of “fun” with someone they barely know and cannot trust? To do so would be insanely dangerous, and if the medications – contraception and abortion – for “accidental” pregnancy did not exist, no woman would be so reckless.

So the liberal man fights tooth-and-nail for those birth-prevention measures, because without them, he can no longer use women he barely or, indeed, doesn’t know, for fleeting physical pleasure; to have sex with a woman, he’s going to have to be a gentleman over a sustained period of time: he’s going to have to get to know a lady, and he’s going to have to demonstrate to her over a period of time that he’s a trustworthy, dependable, loyal partner; and then, he’s going to have to drag himself out of adolescence, and commit to looking after her and their future offspring for the rest of his life (and that all sounds like a lot of hard work and effort – things leftists are not overly fond of).

Actually, when it comes to courtship and marriage, women were given all of the power by nature / God: even in other species, it’s the males who have to prove to the female that they’re worth of being their partner, and in a human society devoid of contraception and abortion, and which has rigorously enforced standards of sexual ethics that stretch beyond mere “consent“, it’s exactly the same: if men are not willing or able to provide the loving security and stability the woman requires, then it’s simple: no sex, no marriage. I go into much more detail on this in a previous post, but basically, the introduction of contraception (and abortion) completely trivialises sex, and removes the female’s natural power over the situation. Like most things third-wave feminism advocates, it doesn’t liberate women – it enslaves them; it relegates them to the status of mere sex toys, who can be plied with alcohol, used for sex, and then coldly disposed of. Men who advocate contraception and abortion very well know this, and it is why they do so.

What man, who has genuine respect for women (which only comes from sound moral teaching and loving platonic relationships with females in early life), could possibly fight, in good conscience for abortion? Leaving aside the fact that it – along with contraception, as explained in the paragraph above clips the wings of female autonomy, and leaving aside the more obvious impact – the dead human child, let’s explore the lesser-known effects of abortion: the deleterious effects on the mother. A woman’s first pregnancy permanently changes her breasts: during that pregnancy, she is at higher risk of breast cancer, but once the pregnancy reaches its natural conclusion – childbirth – the cells in that area stabilise forever, reducing the risk; but if her first pregnancy is interrupted, her breasts are permanently stuck in the volatile period before birth, permanently increasing her breast cancer risk. Also, abortion raises the risk of future miscarriages by 60%, meaning that many women who have had abortions, who want to start a family later on in life, find it difficult to do so. And that’s not all: the risk of women who have an abortion attempting suicide is increased sixfold, because abortion is an invasive, traumatising procedure: women who have miscarriages are devastated, often barely able to function, for months on end; some never recover. Why would it be different for vulnerable women who opted for abortion, just because society lied to them, selling them the fake idea that abortion is a quick and easy solution to all problems?

How abortion effects women. But you don’t care, do you, liberal male? All you care about is your own short-lived “fun”.

Given not only the profound damage dealt by abortion, but the stripping of natural feminine power by contraception and the casualisation of sex, it is clear that if a man genuinely cares for women, he cannot possibly be pro-abortion and pro-casual sex; he can only be an advocate of those things if he is either a) ignorant; or b) misogynistic and selfish. Given the acidic, venomous – and usually female-specific – hatred directed towards women of various unapproved ideological persuasions, we can safely rule out option A, in the case of liberal men. Since the Sexual Revolution in the late 1950s and early 1960s, men have had carte blanche to use women for aimless sexual ‘thrills’, which at best “just” exploit the women involved, but at worst, cause them long-term psychological – and even medical – problems. Men who support this cannot legitimately be called pro-female, and I am staggered as to how female feminists cannot see that they are aligned with a bunch of woman-hating misogynists.

Personally, given various relationships of different types and degrees, both present and past, I quite like women, and think they should be treated with dignity and respect, not as cheap sex toys for unscrupulous men. Male feminists: you may have fooled your female feminist allies into believing you are pro-female activists, fighting for a safer and more accepting world for women; but we social conservatives – male and female alike – can see straight through you. We know what woman-hating, spoilt, selfish little boys you really are.

The Trump Effect, Vol. II: A Call for Unity

The unexpected election of Donald Trump into the highest office in American politics last week caused quite a stir amongst conspiracy theorists. By all metrics, Hillary Clinton was the clear New World Order candidate: she comes from a dynastic, deeply establishment family; she is a seasoned hawk; she is a committed progressive; she advocated mandatory vaccination; and she was committed to disarming the American population. Absolutely nothing Clinton stood could be interpreted as anti-establishment.

If you compare this to the campaign rhetoric of her victorious opponent, the enigmatic Donald Trump, much of which was highly controversial, directly challenging leftist establishment orthodoxy and proposing real, viable, workable solutions, then it seems pretty obvious whom it would benefit the establishment more to have residing in the White House. That having someone entirely in-line with what the NWO strives to achieve installed as the Chief Executive is expedient, self-evidently makes logical sense – a willing, devoted slave is far more desirable than one who has to be cajoled, bribed, or threatened into obedience, because his/her loyalty is far less conditional, and thus much easier to maintain.

Over the last week, I’ve been following very keenly the reactions of conspiracy theorists; there is much that I, as a fellow conspiracy theorist, find to disagree with. I find the alt-right position that Trump is embarking on a one-man crusade to liberate America from the hidden cabal, against seemingly insurmountable adversity and all the odds, completely unrealistic. Even if Trump were willing to do all of this, he is unable – he has not been appointed the supreme dictator of the USA; he has to work within the democratic political framework of that nation-state, with its emphasis on the separation of powers (and that is without mentioning the power of lobbyists and advisers, or the clout of the financial sector). I think that expecting Trump to be the glorious saviour of mankind that many people seem to be hoping for is extremely optimistic, and likely to lead to serious disappointment.

However, I also strongly disagree with the opposite opinion: that Trump winning is completely meaningless, that it is as desirable to the establishment as Clinton winning, that there is no ‘lesser of two evils’. I think that this viewpoint (which, judging from my experiences browsing various conspiracy forums, appears to be held mainly by left-wingers, as well as anarchists who believe evil begins and ends with the state) is not only despairingly pessimistic, but quite illogical – it relies upon the supposition that anyone who has even the tiniest amount of power or influence is with the Illuminati programme; something I just cannot agree with, because I do not believe the interwoven global networks of political and social control, and the various disputes and disagreements within, are all choreographed like some awful dance group on Britain’s Got Talent. One simple piece of logic that I like to remember is that if our hidden overlords were omnipotent and omniscient, they wouldn’t need to be hidden, would they? It’s easy to despair as a conspiracy theorist and think “we’re all doomed, they control 100% of everything”, but this is NOT true – we can still fight; and ‘they’ are not infallible gods – their schemes are not flawless, and their reach is not yet universal.

I said in the previous volume of my analysis of Trump’s victory that I believe Trump represents the fabled ‘lesser of two evils’ – a position I still wholeheartedly take. A Donald Trump presidency clearly represents different things than a Hillary Clinton presidency. Party political niceties dictate that Donald Trump cannot push anywhere near as aggressively to further the destructive liberal social policies that characterise our era; not only would the Republican Party savage him, but more crucially, it would completely shatter the already-fragile illusion of democracy, which is something the elite need to do, for the time being at least. What would it look like if a Republican president legalised partial-birth abortion, for instance, or repealed the Second Amendment? It would be obvious to even a blind fool that both political parties sing from exactly the same hymn sheet, and that would spell the end for the two-party system – something that at this point is not in the script.

I will go into this in depth in my final post on the election (due to be published within the next week), but it is important for other conspiracy theorists to understand also that, like myself, many conspiracy theorists are also social conservatives and Christians – we are a minority, for sure, but a significant one. Other issues may be more important to you, and that is fine – we are all entitled to our own opinion on which issues are the most urgent. But to us, the most important issues are the social issues: we are most deeply concerned with the proliferation of abortion, the aggressive LGBT persecution of religious people, with the destruction of the family unit, with the deregulation of sex, and with the malignant tumour that is pornography. Most of us believe that even if Trump does not substantially ameliorate these social evils, that he will not make them worse – or at least, he will not make them worse to the extent that Hillary Clinton would have. If you are concerned chiefly with economics, or with foreign policy, or the political structure, that is fine; but these are secondary interests for us, and as far as we religious conservatives can see, we have just won ourselves a temporary reprieve from the vicious, coordinated assault on our beloved traditional culture.

For me, the important thing to remember is that whatever we as conspiracy theorists say, we are outsiders, we are not party to any plans that may exist for Trump’s presidency, and so it is all speculation. We conspiracy theorists, of all stripes, are very opinionated people. Though we are (usually) more civilised and polite in our modes of expression than our mainstream friends, a resolute, determined fire burns within us all: we wouldn’t be conspiracy theorists if we couldn’t stand our ground in the face of verbal hammerings! I think that sometimes – myself included – we can become almost single-minded, even to the point of self-important arrogance. Genuine conviction in one’s beliefs is always a positive thing, but I do not think it is at all helpful to (as one conspiracy theorist I debated online repeatedly did) deride people, either tacitly calling them stupid, or explicitly calling them “sheep” (a term I loathe), simply for not subscribing to our individual positions. All this furious screaming at Trump voters and supporters to “wake up, you stupid sheep, Trump is just as bad!” is only likely to alienate them; in fact, it is simply a variation of the angry, demented howling of the wounded mainstream left that we’re all quite sick of. You might be convinced of the veracity of your opinions, but that never confers the right to silence others who hold theirs.

So please, conspiracy theorists – let’s discuss our differences of opinion on Donald Trump. Let’s openly and honestly disagree with each other – but let’s not get angry or contemptuous with each other. Some of us do not believe that Trump and Clinton are indistinguishable, and it is not because we are half-asleep sheep; it is because we have used our God-given intellects to examine the situation, with our personal values and beliefs in mind, and we have arrived at a different conclusion than those who believe Trump is either a saviour or, effectively, a Clinton clone; a conclusion that is no less valid than anyone else’s.

The Trump Effect, Vol. I: Left Behind

18vcsq

This entry will be the first in a three-part analysis of the recent elections in the United States of America, from which the enigmatic Donald Trump emerged victorious. In the latter two pieces which will be published in the coming days,  I will explore what Trump’s election means from the perspectives of a conspiracy theorist and of a conservative. But first, I want to first explore why Clinton specifically lost; and more broadly, how the left have lost yet another election.

Firstly, I’ve got to begin by extending my congratulations to the next POTUS, Mr. Trump, a man who – despite his imperfections – I believe to be by far the superior candidate (or, if you want to phrase it pessimistically, the lesser of two evils, which even the most anti-Trump conspiracy theorist would have to concede that he is). Even if you believe Trump to be a complete puppet, I urge you to enjoy the aftermath of the election, if for no other reason than to enjoy the hysterical circus that the left has devolved into. No matter who has been elected, whether it be David Cameron or Donald Trump, it is always most entertaining when the candidate the left have been programmed into supporting falls flat on their face.

Now onto the serious stuff. It’s becoming such a regular occurrence that watching the left trying to fathom how they’ve lost another vote is in danger of becoming like Groundhog Day. My own personal customary ritual on these wonderful public holidays (they aren’t officially, but should be) is to go and browse on a few select left-wing internet forums I know of, and see what kind of conclusions they are coming to. Browsing my favourite Marxist forum, I was unsurprised by what they had deduced. Had they realised that Clinton is hated by tens of millions of Americans? Are they finally cognisant of the reality that working-class White America – the majority of the electorate – just aren’t really that interested in the trendy liberal pet causes and identity politics that Clinton had based her campaign on? Has the penny dropped that the Democrats were shockingly inept at addressing the concerns of these people? Has it got through their skulls that bullying, name-calling, and intimidation are not the most effective ways of winning people over to your cause?

No, no, and thrice no.

The reason Clinton flopped so pathetically, according to these great sages, has nothing to do with her or her policies. Clinton holds the ‘right’ views: those progressive, socially liberal views that were implanted into every liberal by the media and academia, and which these edgy young rebels uncritically downloaded into their circuits, to be parroted ad nauseum. No one could possibly rationally or logically analyse and then reject the positions the left have decreed to be indisputably morally correct; unless they are either completely stupid and brainwashed, or irrationally prejudiced against some precious minority group in some way. Our wise liberal friends have unanimously concluded that Trump didn’t vanquish Clinton because his policies and stated aims were more appealing to the average American than the alternative candidate, but because he played up to base prejudices and fears of the white, working-class masses, who are too stupid, ignorantand racist to be able to resist his seductive charms.

This contemptuous, elitist attitude was, of course, of no surprise to me. It’s the usual sanctuary for the wounded left-wing animal; their refuge for when things don’t go their way. We Brexiteers here in Britain were forced to endure similar patronising sneering from the Guardian-reading snobs. We only voted to leave the European Union because we’re idiotic bigots incapable of rational thought, too stupid to see the wonderful, all-encompassing benefits of left-wing social extremism, and thus were easy prey to self-serving liars and xenophobes like Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson. This is the exact same pompous attitude held by the tolerant, caring liberals towards Trump’s voters; they only voted for Trump because they hate women (I suppose Trump’s legions of female supporters are also misogynistic) and Mexicans (even though almost a third of Latino voters voted Republican), and were won over by his slick, snake oil salesman chicanery – the stupid, gullible, malleable fools.

These aspiring leftist sophocrats derive a (very) false sense of superiority from this ideologically supremacist mindset; which quite literally dehumanises anyone who isn’t a left-wing extremist. We’re idiots. We don’t have the capacity for having real thoughts, opinions, and feelings of our own; we’re just robots, capable only of reacting to stimuli. This leads them to sanctimoniously bestow upon themselves the right to treat us however awfully as they wish to: they call us names, they threaten us, they ostracise us, and they try and censor us – all because we don’t subscribe to what they have deemed to be the ‘correct’ assortment of political views.

Shockingly, treating ordinary people with the same disgust one would treat a rapist or paedophile with doesn’t ever seem to convince them to agree with you – all it does is alienate them (but please, carry on doing it, leftists – all you’re doing is pushing the masses over to our conservative side). Dehumanising those people who form the majority of the electorate you need to win over to your side in that way will certainly not win you an election. The left, in Britain and in America, has now lost three major votes in quick succession: the UK election in 2015, the UK EU membership referendum in June 2016, and now the US election in November 2016. The left failed so miserably in these votes for the same two reasons: 1) thuggish and dishonest campaign tactics; and 2) a fundamental detachment from the major concerns of ordinary, working-class people.

For all the intellectual struggles of the left over the previous few days, doing well in elections isn’t rocket science – to succeed, you properly and convincingly address key issues that concern the core of the electorate (which in America, is still white people with low incomes). Most people are interested in things such as law and order, immigration, security, defence, quality of life, the economy, and so on. In this current climate, many millions of Americans feel disaffected and marginalised by the political establishment that has destroyed their communities, devastated their prospects of succeeding economically, and enforced insane levels of immigration upon local communities; a phenomenon which, – like it or not, leftists – many people find invasive, threatening, and demoralising (and no amount of calling them racists is going to change that, so go back to the drawing board if you ever want to see the insides of the halls of power again).

Well, knock me down with a feather, Clever Trevor – Trump tackled these issues in a decisive way during his campaign (whether he is sincere or will follow through on his promises or not is irrelevant in the context of discussing how he won), and thus, he won. Trump spoke about real-world issues that concerned ordinary voters, and he promised emphatic solutions to these problems: the much-derided Mexican wall is a common-sense solution to the HUGE problem of illegal Mexican immigration – 6 million Mexicans live in the USA illegally. Whether YOU, leftist, have a problem with illegal Mexican immigrants or not is immaterial; the electorate DO. Trump has pledged to provide sensible solutions to various issues of national import. Deporting foreign criminals, disallowing terrorists from entering the country, and stemming the flow of cheap Chinese goods into America causing an enormous amount of job losses all sound like good, common-sense policies to me. UKIP has had a lot of success in the past few years here in Britain, for the same reason as Trump – they reach out to the common people and proffer sensible solutions to the serious dilemmas which trouble them.

It’s ironic given that this is the accusation levelled at Trump, but Clinton’s campaign was based on division and identity politics. She hates non-liberal white people, she hates white men, she hates Christians, she hates conservatives, and she hates women who aren’t radical feminists. She made absolutely no effort whatsoever to convince these people – the majority of the electorate – that she had the solutions to the problems affecting them, the problems they cared about. Instead, she – and her armies of privileged, well-heeled metropolitan leftists – uttered empty slogans about “progress”, obsessively focusing on bludgeoning people into accepting ever more ‘progressive’ extremes such as gender-neutral toilets (how out of touch do you have to be to think things of that nature are the chief concerns of ordinary people?).

Here’s the bottom line, leftists: Trump won because he actually addressed the concerns of every day Americans, and because his party didn’t condescend to the largest demographic group – working-class whites. You lost because you’re out-of-touch bullies. It is that simple, and it is exactly why the Remain campaign lost the Brexit referendum. If you ignore and alienate people, they tend not to like you very much. The left will never win another vote in the West until it re-establishes contact with reality, and abandons its thuggish, bullying tactics; and I, for one, will not be shedding any tears at the funeral of the Red beast.

Stay tuned!
