Trump, Brexit, Nation-States, Cabbages, and Kings

Guest post by Donald J. Trump:

The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy….Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people.

The quote is from Takimag [link]

My little afterword:

The chattering class has done it again. I have actually heard some idiots say, in their patronizing way, that "Trump has really screwed up this time." First, they say, his very presence in Scotland during this vote was a mistake. Exactly how and why it was a mistake they don't say. Then others say that his commentary, above, was a terrible mistake which will lose him a lot of votes. How that would work is not specified. Takimag, at the link above, commented:

Obviously one would have to be an entitled bigoted bully to pick on an oppressed minority such as “the global elite.”

Tongue in cheek, obviously. The chattering classes make one big mistake: They think everybody, down deep inside, thinks just like they do, except of course for the "badwhites," the Archie Bunkers, the mouth-breathing hicks, the gun-toting rednecks, the bigoted Bible-thumpers, etc. The real enemy is just this little group of White people, mostly American, who are opposed to wonderful things like the leviathan superbureaucratic EU, gun control, crossdresser bathrooms, and all the other cool trendy stuff. Everybody else, to include goodwhites, like the chattering classes themselves, all nonWhites, all nonChristians, especially Muslims, all sexual deviants, women, of course, and other groups I'm forgetting to include, they're all good guys who agree about everything, really, or will, once the chatterers explain it all. They may seem to be in conflict now and then, when a Muslim murders a building full of homosexuals, or Blacks beat up and kill crossdressers, or "minorities" in general rape and murder a bunch of womn, but they're all on the same side when it comes to the real enemy — the badwhites mentioned above.

Steve Sailer calls it "The Coalition of the Fringes," and says that this hatred of badwhites is the KKKrazy glue that holds it all together. Steve knows how to coin phrases.

Well, all that is why the Chattering class thinks Trump screwed up. In fact, though, he won again, comparing the UK's decision to assert itself as a free people to our upcoming election, and of course he's completely correct to do so.

The Brits, despite many years of propaganda intended to turn them into malleable sheep, have decided that Trump was right when he said:

The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony.

Which I have made into the quibcag above for you to pass around. And he's right, and the British electorate is right. The EU is no such foundation, nor is the UN, nor is any big globalist project. Now, the US is a special case. In one way of looking at it, we're analogous to the EU. We're a union of fifty states, and sometimes we seem too big to function properly, with too much centralized authority. In my opinion, the solution to that is to decentralize some of that authority, and give more sovereignty back to the states, the way the Founders intended. On the other hand, the US, at least the White part, is far more homogenous than Europe, because culturally, we're all basically derived from Britain, speak English, have English law as a tradition, are overwhelmingly Christian, etc.

So the US, I believe, should remain one country, because we are one nation — we're on the edge of being more than one, true, and some people have elaborated on that idea, thus:



This is from here [link], and it's fun to think about. Me, I'm a Greater Appalachian (Redneck), though I live in Farwest. When I get around to reading that book [link], I may say more about this.  But for now, lest everybody panic that we may fall apart into eleven countries, you could probably make a case for just about ever nation (in the ethic sense) being divisible into smaller nations. Spain, certainly, could be Castille and Catalonia and a few other nations. Germany was once 500 nations and could probably be again. Italy? At least half a dozen nations. About the only big country I can think of that couldn't be logically more than one nation is Japan. You could probably make a case for East Iceland and West Iceland.

Every case is different, of course, and the US should be one nation, but a more decentralized one, with more power given the states. That's a real possibility with Trump, who is refreshingly pragmatic as opposed to ideological. Europe should give up on its EU, and instead work on treaties and agreements designed to effectuate peace and trade between sovereign nations, and for God's sake keep "refugees" from flooding Europe. Obviously the EU can't do that at all.

Quibcags: The first is illustrated by the Hetalia: Axis Powers (Axis Powers ヘタリア)  personifications of Britain and the United States, who are both cute and appropriate. And then I remembered and dug up the quote by Marine Le Pen (La Trump de la France) illustrated by the Hetalia personification of France. The third, of course, is one of those anime Trump girls who are all over the net, to the consternation of the MAG.

  1. A nation is not defined by a magic line drawn on a map - Iraq was never a "nation" though was a state. Nor were there 500 nations in Germany, but there were 500 feudal lords.

    The problem with Progressives is they hate Federalism. Seattle must be made identical with San Francisco with Denver with Orlando with New York. It will never work. The EU, instead of leaving the nations to do their own thing and settling and smoothing and building bridges across the barriers instead tried to homogenize everything.

    Worse, the globalizers here in the USA and in the EU are settling on the least common denominator because they have to.

    Homogenous societies are high-trust societies - either all are lazy or industrious, trustworthy or cheaters. When trying to regulate, the globalist regulator must assume everyone is a lazy cheater. The cheater society knows they need to audit everything and will get efficient at it. The trustworthy society still has the advantage since there will almost never be cheating, and that part which is unintentional will be corrected by the parties without involving courts.

    As to the cause of the homogeneity, it can be race or culture or religion. I can trust a black Mormon more than a white SJW.

    Somehow Asia and Africa avoids this multicultural immigration push - If a million productive Europeans and Asians moved back to South Africa or Zimbabwe it might be fixed. I'll add South America - how many Syrian refugees is Brazil or Argentina taking?
