As I watch the massive anti-Trump marches, shouting, window smashing, fires and physical assaults, I cannot help but conclude that this will have the unintended consequence of radicalizing the Trump voters and potential voters. My strong impression from acquaintances in the exurban Texas county where I live is that most Trump voters had only a moderate attachment to the candidate and his policy message. The media and the screamers are doing everything in their power to super charge that attachment.
Most clearly had no idea that the election of Trump could make so many young whites take to the streets and start fires and break windows. Obviously, those Trumpsters who watch Breitbart, or read Zero Hedge probably had some idea of the potential extremity at the other end of the political spectrum. However, the "mainstream" media is proudly streaming video of these riots and protests to much less committed voters and potential voters, expecting them to somehow be frightened into opposing job creation, vetting potential terrorists, and ending illegal immigration as contrary to American values.
This news coverage will have the opposite effect as can be seen in the polling numbers showing clear majority approval of Trump's temporary freeze on immigration from 7 Moslem countries. In fact, it is obvious to average voters that opening the borders and allowing millions of immigrants to flood into the country will do nothing to improve their lives or incomes. Oligarchs and corporate titans, yes, but high school grads and college grads from less competitive colleges and universities, not so much.
But far more fascinating is the intensity of emotion in young white protesters shouting, threatening and harassing the attendees at the Milo Yiannopoulis campus speeches. The charge they level is that opposition to open borders, bringing jobs back to America and improving the living standards of citizens (regardless of race) is, nevertheless, racist. Milo calls these protesters "cucks." But the label does not come close to describing the sense of emotional panic and vehemence of these protesters. A "cuck" is one who meekly and quietly moves to the corner and watches (It does describe many Republican Congressmen).
In contrast, one cannot escape the impression that these protesters are filled with fear that there will soon be a mass uprising of all the the brown and black people on the planet who will slaughter whites, and they hope that somehow their past record of protest against “racists” will allow them to be spared.
It is as if this world wide uprising of black and brown people will be organized and will run massive formal Nuremberg trials of 500 million whites world wide to sort out the virtuous from the condemned.
But then there is the economic explanation.
If your parents are employees of local, state for federal government, and you would like to follow in their footsteps, avoid the brutal world of competition and 12 hour work days in the private sector, and then retire to a fat $100,000 plus per year pensions, then Trump does in fact pose an existential threat to that expectation.
After all, mass immigration provides huge and growing demand for low intensity clerical work to process the welfare needs of these new arrivals.
The problem is that even low IQ immigrants gradually adapt, find jobs, and at least at the margin, go off welfare. Without a continuing inflow there is slow attrition of government jobs and a reduced demand for public "services." While the parents of these protesting students may be able to keep their jobs, the absence of massive new arrivals guarantees fewer future hires, throwing these young protesters to the fierce competition and the long work hours of the private sector, where entry level wages for graduates of less competitive schools - and indeed all but the top graduates at many mid ranked state schools with good football teams - are subsistence level.
You can say what you like about the student protesters, but the main stream media should know enough to see the danger of the emotional attack on Trump and his policies as "racist". All they are doing is diluting the effect of that epithet and radicalizing Trump voters. The other thing that the main stream media fails to understand is something that the Kelly Ann Conways of the world have experienced first hand. In the U.S. there are approximately 800 counties – all “red” in presidential elections - which are more than 90% white and which have birth rates around or above 3 per woman.
Anyone who lives in the Red States can see that this trend is growing. The church parking lots are overflowing on Sundays. Intelligent kids are cooperatively home schooled to escape bad schools. Once the social pressures of the 1950s to marry and have kids evaporated in the early 1960s with the the advent of the pill, we had a large increase in the percentage of childless couples living the consumer lifestyle. Post pill, procreation depended upon instinct - a genetic factor - rather than social pressure.
Thus in two to three generations the only whites left will have strong reproductive instincts (in addition to mere sexual urges), which will have huge implications for consumption.
If you are a socially isolated high IQ professional, having children is very expensive, but for these exurban church going breeders, having children is cheap. There are child care coops within the congregation. There are teenage girls who do baby sitting. Parents with older children pass children's clothing on to younger parents in the congregation.
The men at most of these churches have trucks and earn good incomes as tradesmen - plumbers, electricians, locksmiths, well diggers - and it is easy for young high school grads to find apprenticeships with them, particularly older tradesmen who are declining in physical strength. If some of the parishioners have ranches or farms, there is less need to do prepping for survival, and a ready group of armed guards of food stocks and livestock in the event of societal breakdown.
As an aside, to aspiring white nationalists out there I would advise that you stop pissing away money on fancy "conferences" staged to sate the ego needs of self proclaimed "leaders" and get a divinity degree instead.
But on a more serious note, we now have the massive trend of the baby boom whites cutting back on consumption, (the lead edge is now 71) and we have the replacement generations of church going young whites cooperating to keep consumption in check as their birth rates and numbers rise rapidly.
The investment implications of these trends are clear as are the political and voting trends. And we no longer have Walter Cronkite instructing us every night on how we should feel about events that fit the narrative, and where the limits of acceptable opinion are located. We have Milo, Bannon and Trump telling us that it is all a fraud and a con, and that we should laugh at and ridicule them.
Trump holds all the cards. Congress appropriates funds but it cannot force Trump to spend.
The courts can issue injunctions and writs of mandate till the cows come home and the President, and everyone under his command, can ignore them as President Roosevelt did prior to his Court packing exercise.
Congress could shut down the government by refusing to appropriate money, but then they would not be re-elected, and the states would take over and do a much better job of running the country.
This is going to end badly for the screamers both in the media and on college campuses.
And if they really are enamored of violence they had better look at the tiny areas of blue on the map. They are surrounded.
