I have some further thoughts on the Sam Francis article.
There is no relationship between GOP electoral victories and the cultural and demographic health of White America. The MARs Revolution is now in the rearview mirror. We covered it in the 2016 election. Blompf used the Pat Buchanan playbook to win the presidency.
For a year and a half, this website was highly invested in cheering on Donald Trump through the Republican primaries and to the White House. In hindsight, this is because I took the change in his rhetoric and his positions on various policy issues at face value. Donald Trump at least appeared to be different than his conservative rivals. We were led to believe that he was killing off conservatism.
The Overton Window under Donald Trump has shifted in the sense that conservatism has openly embraced homosexuality and feminism. It has become even more bizarrely and singlemindedly devoted to Israel and “fighting anti-Semitism.” Far from transcending “identity politics,” it has ratcheted up its identity based appeals to racial minorities. CPAC has become less hospitable to dissidents. The realm of free speech on the internet has drastically narrowed. Political correctness has intensified. The streets have become more violent due to the surge in Antifa whose tactics like violence and doxing have become mainstream. Finally, we are in the midst of a government crackdown on rightwing dissidents as people are being sent to prison by Trump appointees for unmasking and defending themselves from Antifa.
But the GDP and African-American unemployment rate though …
I would like to hear a persuasive case for mainstream conservatism, electoral politics and the Republican Party. The cost of participating in electoral politics and mainstream conservatism appears to be self-censorship about issues of vital national importance due to all the social revolutions that have triumphed under mainstream conservatism. It is now taboo to talk about pretty much anything including transgenderism that would be of interest. The benefits of participating in electoral politics and mainstream conservatism is, well, there are no benefits because both the policy agenda and the cultural norms that accompany it are sold to wealthy Jewish donors and corporate lobbyists. It’s true that normies remain highly invested in partisan politics because they are unable to see how the liberal system chugs along and moves toward its goals regardless of whether an “R” or “D” occupies the White House, but pandering to normies and going along with them on this simply takes us down the same slippery slope.
What is there left to talk about in the “mainstream” when transgenderism has triumphed and transphobia is taboo? It is “mainstream” now to talk about engaging in violence against us. It is taboo now in the “mainstream” to even talk about White people in a positive way. If you said anything positive about White people in the mainstream, you would be accused of “white supremacy,” denounced as a racist and purged from conservatism. Drag Queen Story Hour is a blessing of liberty now.
The mainstream is a mixture of liberalism, modernism, political correctness and multiculturalism now. Both the Republicans and Democrats maintain this consensus and debate issues within this closed framework of ideas. The price of participating in the mainstream conservation means accepting these assumptions. We can’t accept these assumptions and move from there to anything resembling what we want. It is out of bounds within this system to talk about White interests or Southern interests. Steve King can’t even talk about “Western civilization” in a positive way now without being purged.
This is why mainstreaming doesn’t work. There is nothing you can talk about within the “mainstream” anymore that won’t get you flagged and stigmatized as fringe. Everything you care about and want to talk about is now a violation of an -ism or a -phobia. There is no point in “infiltrating” conservatism because once inside your hands are tied by this ideological consensus and you will be purged for violating it. Above all else, there is no point in electing conservatives because they are bound by this consensus and even when they do have ample electoral power they are incapable of challenging it.
