This is the regrettably the first post since last weekend, but I have been distracted with the election.
As we all know, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States of America tuesday night in stunning fashion.
Last April I had an article published on Counter-Currents called ‘What Would A Trump Presidency Mean For The War In Europe?’ I am working on a ‘sequel’ to it now that he has won, about how his election will affect Identitarianism as a whole, that I will be submitting over there, but in the meantime I wanted to post my more personal reflections here, for regular readers of the site.
Here they are:
In the above mentioned Counter-Currents article I also did so, writing:
In that general election matchup I feel strongly that Trump will win. He has proven himself to be light years ahead of every other candidate in terms of strategy. He has played the media like a fiddle, and understands the modern news cycle and how to position oneself tactically in ways previous candidates have never come close to. I predict that in a general election matchup against Hilary Clinton Trump will come away with a strong victory, an event that would have seemed completely impossible a year ago.
Now my prediction was just one of many, and certainly not the earliest, but it still feels very good to be among those who foresaw Trump’s victory when every mainstream media Lugenspresse journalist and pollster was saying he would be clobbered.
We are all used to focusing on these things on the macro level, and that is the primary focus of this website. Yet on a personal level I am very relieved that Trump won. It makes me far more comfortable writing about the things I do. Under Obama, writing about a Reconquista and civil war in Europe and advocating for the overthrow of the German/UK/French/Swedish governments was a little worrying at times. Now, though still anathema to the establishment, those views are basically shared by our commander in chief. (more on this in upcoming article)
I am also grateful that Trump won because of my son. I watched the election results next to him and my wife (on the edge of our seats as his numbers ticked up in WI and MI). Seeing families in Europe having their rights taken away (home-schooling, etc), seeing Muslim immigrants doing violence against native European children without punishment, and knowing that Hillary would have governed in that vein makes me even more grateful Trump is president. While all my passion and focus is on Europe, and while I obviously am working towards spending more and more time/focus there rather than America, as an American I am much more optimistic personally as a result of the election.
I am also far more hopeful about the situation in Europe. Even though- as we well know- Trump’s victory will cause SJW’s across Europe to double-down on virtue signalling and cultural suicide, his victory (combined with that of Brexit) now provides a model that other European nations can draw inspiration and direction from. Our next upcoming election will be in Austria, then France and the Netherlands. While there is no longer a purely political solution in Europe, I have far greater hopes for those elections now, and for the possibility they might catalyze direct action on the part of the people.
This is also something I will be writing more about, but it is an area with deep significance and one with great resonance to me. As a Millennial, I and the rest of our cohort grew up being constantly force-fed 1960’s Counter-Culture. We were told over and over again of the excitement, optimism, beauty, etc of the ‘Woodstock Generation’. Such indoctrination is persuasive, and ever since that time period we consistently see succeeding generations of young people wistful they did not grow up then, even see them modeling their own behavior and fashions after the ’68’ers’. However, over the last two years a vast right-wing Counter-Culture arose, speaking truths of honor, strength, pride, and tradition- the exact opposite of those spoken by the Hippies 50 years ago.
The memes and art and cultural artifacts from this burgeoning movement are already legion, and I will embed some of them down below for posterity. I can’t stress the significance of this enough- most American elections are tired spectacles of cynicism and special interest. Trump is right that he was elected not for those reasons but on the crest of a movement, and the history books will write about the vast wave of culture and passion and Identitarian consciousness that propelled him to victory.
Finally, this site has seen a great deal of discussion on Trump’s run, his significance, the meaning of his campaign in relation to Europe, etc. It has been a tremendous privilege getting to engage in those discussions with you. Whether in the comments section or via email, I want to thank all of you reading this for the chance to have gone on this journey with you. I absolutely cannot wait for the next victories we will have, and for the chance to contribute more and more to the situation in Europe. Perhaps one day soon, the victory of Trump in America will seem minuscule in comparison to the victories of our people in taking back the countries of Europe.
I will be gone this weekend doing some exciting things relating to all this stuff, but I have a couple interviews in the pipeline to post on the site. Any articles or news from Europe anyone can send me is highly appreciated as well!
Brothers: Anyone surprised Trump won? Any thoughts on these protests? How do you think his win will affect Europe? I know I (like many others) have immense Schadenfreude at Hillary’s defeat.
These are all examples of the ‘Counter-Culture’ that grew intertwined with Trump’s candidacy over the last two years:
