Before I took the time to research into US politics, I was all against talking about it, and in so fell to the consensus as a “safe bet”, pretending as if I was somewhat knowledgeable on the subject. For anybody outside of the UK, our attitudes toward this election have varied from not wanting to engage in debate, to only wanting to engage in one kind of debate; is Donald Trump the worst human being alive, or is he just another Republican we should ignore unless prompted otherwise? Well, there are few who recognise the truth, that Trump is an acquired taste, but when acquired, it is not only by a large percentage of the voters, but is considered by them to be the only hope left for America, and when you have that kind of intensity set upon a candidate, compared with the support of Clinton (mostly summed up as, “we don’t want Trump,” or “we would’ve preferred Bernie but we’ll take a Democrat”), this election becomes more than just a stepping stone in ignorable politics, but a great change, and a movement, that can be seen erupting in every corner of the western world, like slaves who suddenly realise that it’s possible to be free.
If you’re in my special bracket of anti-globalism, you’ll agree with me when I say that Brexit won the battle, but Trump will win the war. Our country showed Americans an important lesson, that people still have a say in their own lives, and if enough of them mobilise, then something spectacular can occur; they might actually get what they want. There’s a big lie taught, and has been taught for many years, branded on the trembling corpse of World War II, that “Nationalism” is a great threat, picking the least important word out of the Nazi name – the other of course being “Socialism”. I imagine a group of professors sitting around a table in a university classroom saying “We can’t let people tie socialism, and our goals in this way, to the Nazis… no, we’ll have to shift the blame to our opponents.” Well I, like many I see all over Britain, and have great conversations with, would rather live in a detached house, on a street, where every man is willing to help his neighbour but values the privacy of his own home, than a block of flats with a crooked landlord.
Trump in America is the final blow of a one-two punch to the Glozi regime (Global Socialist), and set to be a powerful one at that. A promoter of Brexit from early on, Trump represents an uprising, and a harmful wound to the stereotypers who would be quick to label anyone who disagrees with them a racist, or sexist, without evidence because if enough people believe it, to support the enemy is guilt by association. Ostracism is a powerful tool for the left, which has led to the common utterance of what I believe to be the most dangerous sentence in the English language: “I don’t know if I can say that.”
A former KGB officer, Yuri Bezmenov, once talked about a brainwashing technique, “Idealogical Subversion.” He coined the first of four stages, Demoralisation, “It takes from fifteen to twenty years to demoralize a nation,” he said, “why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which requires to educate one generation of students”, moving away from normalcy, “patriotism”, and into the systems of Marxist-Leninist theory. Bezmenov tells of the process of indoctrinating “the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.” That is the basic issue of this election, from a Clinton, known advocate of the Global agenda, to Trump, who echoes the mantra that should be echoed by anyone in the US who cares about their freedoms. “Americanism not Globalism will be our credo!”
Yuri’s enlightening interview with G. Edward Griffin concludes with a warning, haunting and in which the processes are already being seen. Safe spaces, trigger warnings, language policing, journalists being fired, minorities and gay people being no-platformed, even on the left, for going off reservation.
Bezmenov: “There must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain them the real danger of socialist, communist, whatever, welfare state, Big Brother government.
If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of that development, nothing ever can help the United States. You may kiss goodbye to your freedom, including freedoms to homosexuals, to the prison inmates. All this freedom will vanish, evaporated in 5 seconds, including your precious lives.”
If you have been following the media’s colour commentary on Donald Trump you’ll have seen some of the most absurd spins and manipulations, more recently, for example, Trump was criticised for calling the September bomb in New York a “bomb”, and a reporter, moments after hearing Clinton refer to it also as a bomb, asks “Do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump immediately upon taking the stage tonight called the explosion in New York a bomb?” To me this shows only one thing, that the reporter chose to ignore the facts, knowing before she asked that this was the story they were going to sell. And of course in most runnings of this interview, Clinton’s former comments were cut out.
I think people have been aware of this trend for a while but they fell into the classic trap, more common in Brits, of complacency. Turning it into something to mock rather than treating it with seriousness, and the problem there is quite simply that it allows the enemy to delegitimise you as “just a comedian”. They’ll say in 100 years, after the fall of western civilisation, that our greatest rebellion shot itself in the foot by having a sense of humour.
But this is what Trump represents, and too with Brexit, and so we’re tied together; a balancing act where if either of our countries fail, there will be nowhere left to escape to.
