Trump that… or No Trumps

You may have noticed that the USA is electing a new President this year. That’s in November, and before that, the various candidates are rushing around the States to garner support from their party delegates for the big party conference s in the summer, where the one Presidential candidate for each party will be selected. The one with the most delegate votes wins that first hurdle. The first primary takes place next week, on February 1st. It’ll provide a hint as how the front runner and the ‘black horse coming on the inside rail’ are doing.

But enough of that – let’s get to the nitty gritty: Trump or no Trump?

We’re told to either hate Trump because he’s bad, or adore him because he ain’t no Obama. Bis non dat said the ancient Romans, or, translated into modern parlance, ‘there’s no alternative’.

The combined Left in politics and the MSM have of course already made up their minds.

After the shameful debate in the House of Commons Grand Committee Room  about the petition to ‘ban Trump from entering the UK’, we’ve all learned that for a Leftie, that is Labour and SNP MPs, Trump is a horrible racist and islamophobe who shouldn’t be allowed to step on our pristine soil.

It is of course irrelevant that Trump’s remark wasn’t ‘ban all muslims’, but ‘ban all muslims until these troubles (ISIS terrorist attack in Paris) are over’. After all, terrorist attacks have nothing to do with islam, as we’re being told by our politicians at every opportunity.

Meanwhile, though it looks as if Mr Trump could well win the nomination as Presidential Candidate for the Republicans later this year, and if so, might win against the Democratic candidate, be it the more and more unelectable Ms Hillary Clinton or the internationally unknown Bernie Sanders (no, I haven’t a clue as to who he is either …)

So do we accept our American cousins’ enthusiasm, going out all guns blazing, or do we prefer the more cautious approach shown by our Nigel Farage?

Perhaps the arguments of some staunch American conservatives might help us to make up our minds.

I found the contributions at this US publication, ‘National Review’ , very interesting. They hosted an online symposium last week about Trump here.

I recommend, nay, urge you to read it for the various, thought-provoking contributions by eminent American conservatives.

Here’s one quote I found significant and well worth pondering, in the context of the EU “refugee crisis” and the resurgence of patriotic (or “extreme right wing populist”) parties in EU states:

The Trump voter is moderate, disaffected, with patriotic instincts. He feels disconnected from the GOP and other broken public institutions, left behind by a national political elite that no longer believes he matters.

This diagnosis describes exactly every single voter in every EU country who wants to or has voted for these “extreme right wing populist” or, in my opinion, patriotic parties. Remove “Trump”,exchange any government party in the EU for “GOP”, and we get a precise description of the feelings of ordinary people from here, or in France, Germany, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Poland and Hungary, for starters.

This is where the danger lies for the establishment parties across the EU member states, this is the reason for the establishment MSM across the EU member states to attack Trump with all guns blazing.

They attack Trump and by extension all people described in the quote above because in fact they are unwilling to even see that it is they themselves who created him and the problems for which they themselves have no solution.

The danger however isn’t just a President Trump – it is that the establishment in the USA and here in the EU is fixating on a person, and not on the underlying problems which allowed that person to rise.

That danger is the apparent inability of politicians and governments to address the huge underlying problem, namely the uncontrolled migration, if not invasion, into our countries – a migration, as reported in my previous articles, which has been long in the making and is supported overtly and covertly by the UN, EU and NGOs.

It is this danger which Trump addresses, and for which he of course is being smeared and attacked as ‘racist’. (Ed: And even islamophobic)

We must however be aware that any explicit support for Trump, especially at this crucial stage in our own history where we fight for BREXIT, inevitably means that we will be smeared with the same smears as Trump.

Yes, we’ve been there, done that and got the T-shirt – but it is something we really can do without right now.

4 Comments on Trump that… or No Trumps

  1. I often like to play the “Substitution Game”: replace the name vilified in e.g. the TV report you’d describe above with, for example, that of an opponent.
    Would the reasons still make sense, and moreover: would they have dared to make such remarks?
    Substitute Obama for Trump in that Frei TV film, and the whole Lefty world would erupt …

  2. “Islamic Human Rights Commission”?? – isn’t that an oxymoron of the most egregious kind? You have to larf about their “islamophobe” awards. Anyone who expresses islamophobia is reacting as any sane person would if they were approached by a dog foaming at the mouth and clearly suffering from hydrophobia.
    Anyone see Channel 4’s “The Jihadis Next Door” the other night? If not, watch it on catch-up and delight in the spectacle of two “British” jihadis slobbering over their food as they giggle over a video showing ISIL beheading prisoners. Worryingly, young boys were taking their toxic leaflets, but maturer muslims were shouting them down, a welcome spectacle.
    Another Channel 4 documentary was “The Mad World of Donald Trump” with Matt Frei. The title gave me just an inkling of the bias in the production and it proved well justified. Trump was blamed not only for being very rich, but also for not coming from a poor family in a poor neighbourhood and never claiming that he did. Frei went shopping for Trump products and threw them on the street complaining that Trump’s name was on them. He ferreted out every anti-Trump ‘expert’ he could to indulge in a hate-fest and misquote things Trump had said. Frei spent little time interviewing Trump supporters, contenting himself with repeating back to them what they had just said to him, with a smirk and an interrogative lift to his voice as if he found it hard to believe what he was hearing.
    Two Channel 4 documentaries, one that gave us relatively straightforward reporting (the jihadis revealed themselves for what they were); the other a typical Leftist dish-the-dirt shakedown on a candidate that defies PC and says what he thinks.

  3. There is an inherent moral weakness im the left and MSM that refuses to see the danger in not defending our way of life.
    It was fought for to attain and needs to be strongly defended.
    Trump has connected to this reality and may well succeed because of that.

    • I agree.

      It also just occurred to em this very moment that the Left can now finally again unleash their rabid anti-americanism, something they had to rein in for eight years because Obama was their hero.
