The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good, a Damned Dangerous Enemy in this Case

Anybody who's looking for the perfect Presidential candidate is naïve at best, and, well, nuts at worst. You see, folks, nobody's perfect, much less a politician, and the ones who have had perfection attributed to them turn out to be monsters — Mao, Lenin, and a great many third-world "leaders" who popped up during the period of decolonization after the war.

As the quibcag suggests, the left is trying to make Trump out to be the perfect bad guy while the right wants him to be the perfect good guy. He's neither. He couldn't possibly be either one. Nobody could be.

What we on the right want and expect from Trump is really pretty simple and straightforward. We want a change of direction, We want to reverse the trend of repopulating the country with anything but European immigrants — a policy that the left thinks is the height of virtue and with which the phony neoconservative "right" is in perfect agreement.

Just for fun, this is from the Preamble to the Constitution:

...secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...

Now, what do you suppose "our posterity" refers to? The Tsarnaev brothers? Nidal Hassan? Several hundred thousand "Syrian" "refugees" Hillary intends to move in to where you can wave to them over your back fence? Chinese spies? Somali gang-bangers? Emma Lazarus's extended family (here to give them a "safe space" before their next foray into social super-engineering)?

No, "posterity" means "Desendants," and nor just any, but the descendants of the guys signing the document. Tacitly, they acknowledged that yes, they'd make room for their British brothers and sisters when they decided they needed their fertility and skill sets, and even their North European cousins, from Holland and Scandinavia and Germany. I won't bother enumerating the groups not included among their posterity, lest it offend someone, but I guarantee you they wouldn't include Al Sharpton or Huma Abedin or Marc Rich.

Yes, we've degenerated into an empire that includes such people from the ethnostate we started out as, but what most of us want —including most of those not descended from the Founders — is for the degeneration to stop now, and for us to maintain at least our current ethnic balance without our original British stock reducing in percentage still further, and, happily, even increasing a bit. Those of us descended from that original stock want this to be the case because we're not idiots, and those of us not so descended want this to be the case because because, well, they're not idiots, and they've seen the glories of multiculturism flare up around the world in all kinds of interesting ways.

To change the subject slightly, but only slightly, Trump keeps getting accused of modifying his position on immigration. By the time you figure out that he actually hasn't, the press has moved on to other important stories about how Trump's great-great grandfather shook hands with Nathan Bedford Forresr once. As usual, Gavin McInnes says it better than I do. This is from Takimag:

Trump Did Not Flip-Flop on Immigration

Quibcag: I'm in a goofy mood — the "cartoon villain" is somebody from Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon?, /ˈpoʊkeɪˌmɒn, -k-/ poh-kay-mon, poh-ki-mon). and I found the Greek Gods here: http://videoclips.mrdonn.org/greekgods.html


  1. Jesse from Team Rocket. Team Rocket in the series is usually Jesse and James and a talking cat (Meowth), but there was also the other Team Rocket with Butch and Cassidy and they had a motto:

    Prepare for trouble
    And make it double
    To protect the world from devastation!'
    To unite all people within our nation!
    To denounce the evils of truth and love!
    To extend our reach to the stars above!
    Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!
    Surrender now or prepare to fight!
    Meowth, that's right!

  2. I could solve this problem immediately. Make every non-White immigrant spend five years living in Israel. I imagine this tide will suddenly go out.

  3. You only need to know two things: Trump is FAR less likely to get us into a thermonuclear war with Russia than Hillary is and he might actually do something positive about the immigration problem. The first item alone is worth my vote.

  4. So this is not an accurate quote?

    "I have existed from the morning of the world, and I shall exist until the last star falls from the heavens! Although I have taken the form of Donald Trump, I am all men as I am no man, and thus I am...a god! Senators, you may now recognize my divinity! All in favor, say 'BAAA!'"
