How IT could happen: The Candidacy of Donald Trump

July 10, 2015 — 11 Comments

Kevin MacDonald


We all rack our brains every day trying how to break through in a system that is completely stacked against us. How could IT happen—a political movement that would ignite the imaginations of White America, depose the corrupt donor class in the Republican Party, and begin to really take the country back?

Right now, doing so is a huge uphill battle. The oppressive mainstream media environment is closed to obviously true messages that Whites have interests just like everybody else. Indeed, it is busy tearing down what’s left of traditional American culture. And despite the internet, the mainstream media, including outlets such as Fox News, continues to wield enormous power, and the vast majority of Americans, including educated Americans, accept its legitimacy and moral authority. Despite the First Amendment, we all know that there are a variety of very powerful social sanctions against anyone who contravenes the racial consensus.

Further, it is extremely difficult for a grass roots political process to gain traction in the U.S. where there are two entrenched political parties and winner-take-all elections, with no proportional representation. Political parties need money—big money, billionaire-type money, and they need highly recognizable names — neither of which is typically available to a grass roots movement. Such movements have a hard time getting traction or a sense of legitimacy, and it’s very difficult to get their word out, especially if it contravenes what our media elites want to hear.

But political celebrities have an enormous ability to shape public debate because the media cannot ignore them. The media can and will do all it can to destroy celebrities that err on the side of political incorrectness, but they can’t prevent the message from getting out.

Which brings me to Donald Trump. I have to admit that I have always thought of Trump as a lightweight — just another guy with an outsize ego whose main goal was to become rich and famous. When he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination, I thought it was just more of the same—another chance to get his name out there, promote his brand (he seems to name all his enterprises after himself, so running for president seemed likely to help his clothing line, golf courses, media enterprises, etc. — except that’s a difficult explanation in light of what happened after his comments on Mexican immigrants). It seemed like the ultimate vanity candidacy. That may still turn out to be the case.

But maybe not. Trump’s statements on the criminal tendencies and generally low functioning of Mexican and Central American immigrants have struck a chord with White America. And he certainly did not fall in my estimation when he attacked two prominent operatives of the Republican Party/Israel Lobby nexus hostile to his candidacy, Charles Krauthammer and Jonah Goldberg. Then there’s the Twitter incident: “I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz — I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow,” tweeted Trump, adding, “Who, by the way, is totally overrated.” It is, of course, considered “anti-Semitic” to ever call attention to the fact that someone is Jewish because of the absolutely outrageous suggestion that the Jewish identity of someone like Stewart/Leibowitz might influence his opinions. As we all know, Jews are just like everybody else.

These are perhaps the first shots in what will become a raging conflagration between the Jewish media establishment and Trump if he continues to gain traction.

Suddenly, Trump is #1 in the polls for the nomination. You can’t turn on a Fox News talking head show without seeing a discussion of the vicious murder in San Francisco, with routine references to Trump’s candidacy. Doubtless great for Fox ratings because it taps into White anger and insecurity in the face of all the changes being unleashed by our hostile elites, from gay marriage, to removing traditional American symbols, to the new housing regulations that will make it more difficult for Whites to get away from diversity. There is outrage at the San Francisco City Council’s lack of action to change their policies. And there is outrage that the Obama White House, which went all in on Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, et al. (Obama: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” not to mention family visits to meet the president) — the same White House that can’t even express its condolences to Kathryn Steinle’s family and sees fit to blame it on the Republicans because they didn’t pass a bill that would have “solved” the immigration problem by massively increasing immigration of the poor, uneducated, and criminality prone, add yet more “border enforcement” that would be unenforced (just like current immigration laws), and by giving amnesty to people like Francisco Lopez-Sanchez. And of course, even some Republicans are making the same argument, notably Marco Rubio.

But none of this sudden publicity about illegal alien criminality would have happened without Donald Trump. Horrifying crimes by legal and illegal immigrants against Whites and other traditional American people happen all the time. But like Black-on-White crimes, they get no national coverage. (Breitbart reports that “Thanks in part to deadly ‘sanctuary city’ policies, 347,000 convicted criminal immigrants remain at large in the U.S. — and illegal immigrants accounted for 37 percent of all federal sentences handed down in 2014.”) There is local coverage of illegal alien crime (typically without mentioning immigration status or race of offender) and there are notices on a few conservative-oriented websites that are outside the mainstream and have minuscule readership compared to the mainstream media. And while illegal immigrant crime has sporadically been discussed on Fox News (here’s a Fox story from 2014 on two Sacramento policemen killed by a twice-deported illegal alien—a story that probably very few remember), they are unable to ignite a national discussion to the point of influencing electoral politics. The same for the wonderful book, Adios America, by Ann Coulter.

But because of his celebrity status, Trump managed to get the criminality of illegal aliens on the national agenda. Even the New York Times covered it. And because of his wealth, he could run a viable presidential campaign without tapping into the billions of Sheldon Adelson, Larry Ellison, Norman Braman or the rest of the Republican Jewish Coalition as Marco Rubio (among others) is doing and by making war with Iran the most important question for Americans to decide in the 2016 election. Incidentally, Rubio agrees with the Democrats that passing the Gang of Eight immigration amnesty/surge bill would have prevented the Steinle murder (despite the fact that that bill would have lavishly funded sanctuary cities).

Which means that Trump could attempt to run as an independent on issues like displacement-level immigration, opposition to free trade, and national sovereignty. Such a campaign would resonate with a very large segment of White America, and it would certainly dash the hopes for anyone else the Republican money decides to nominate (including the despicable Jeb Bush who said that he took Trump’s comments personally because of his Mexican wife and Mestizo children).

What the establishment fears most is a highly visible, personally attractive, honest, populist candidate who cannot be shut out of the media and with enough money to run a viable campaign. It happened in 1992 with the candidacy of Ross Perot, and it is quite possible that such a candidacy would just make it easier for Hillary (adjectives for Hilary fail me) to win. But the choice between Jeb et al. and Hillary is really no choice at all given that the neocons have pretty much all of them in their thrall, and they basically agree on key issues for Whites like immigration (with the possible exception of Scott Walker). And that would pave the way for a new political party after 2016 that would begin to address the interests of the traditional American people.

In any case, the Republican Party, the party of big business and the Israel Lobby, richly deserves to die unless it can appeal to the legitimate interests of its base—White America of all social classes, both sexes, and all age groups — all of which voted for Romney even though he hardly represented their interests.

Obviously, Trump may be a false hope. But there certainly are other Whites who could undergo a conversion experience and use their celebrity status, and their money (or could attract enough money) to make IT happen. It’s not over until it’s over.

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
Fine article as always by Prof. MacDonald, very happy to see some Trump coverage here. He's looking like the real deal, it's amazing. You can tell he's for real with the immense amount of money he's losing in all this. The number of business deals people are pulling out of over his simple, factual statements is a sight to behold.

The other reason I think he's for real is largely touched on by the article, but worth emphasis. That being how he is forcing media discussion of important issues for white survival, forcing them to respond to reasoned arguments from a successful celebrity. What he's doing is giving white people on the fence in one way or another the courage to believe in and stand for these views, and also lending a sort of mainstream legitimacy to them that makes employers less likely to fire one over doing so. It's something that can snowball.

I'm starting to like him. I like how he doesn't give a crap because he has FU money. He'll either end up dead or making a crazy change in all his policies all of a sudden.

i think they push him out to get people interested in these sham elections.

they could ignore him, but they give him air time.

they need people to believe in the system, so you have some guy echoing popular sentiments and people are interested

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
I don't think it's that easy to ignore someone so famous. I think they feel the need to counter him, as opposed to letting someone so big spout off like this unchecked. All these shows/contracts getting cancelled are bound to be covered, and journalists are bound to end up seeking comments from him about it. Their demonization techniques tend to be effective, especially in America, the land of the lemming. Despite all the anti-illegal-immigration sentiment, it still hasn't been strong enough to lead to any significant organized resistance in America like it has in Europe.

He definitely needs to watch his back. Not only would a number of big fish love him dead, but a number of other lefty/commie loonies as well. I'm sure he's beefed up security.

Countdown to Securities and Exchange Commission investigation, lol.

Trump leads GOP presidential field in new national poll


Trump was the preferred GOP nominee for president for 15 percent of respondents — 4 points ahead of former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.) and Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), who were tied for second place.

Gov. Scott Walker (Wis.), Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark.) shared the third spot with 9 percent each.

In addition to being the first choice for the majority of likely voters who participated in the poll, Trump was also the primary second choice for those who preferred another candidate as their nominee.
12 percent of respondents said Trump was second in line for their vote, while only 7 percent picked either Bush or Paul as their safety candidate.

While Trump may be on top this week, registered Republican voters gave him a very weak chance of holding on to that spot in the long run.

The vast majority of respondents — 29 percent — said they believed Jeb Bush would ultimately claim the GOP presidential nomination. Only 7 percent said the same about Trump.

Unlike other polling companies, YouGov relies on a preselected pool of registered voters from which it pulls respondents at random.

Though this methodology has been called into question by some, the results of this poll are in line with other surveys, including one from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling, which gave Trump a comfortable lead in North Carolina.

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
I'm not sure what Trump's ultimate agenda really is. But I always do appreciate truthful voices during periods of presidential elections. Much of what he said was true and it's the sort of thing the media and government won't tell people. During campaigns is one of the rare times we get to hear the truth and it resonates with people. That's where Trump's bump comes from right now.

So far though nobody really stands out to me. They all just seem like the same thing on both sides. People fishing for votes and then they will go serve their masters who are the real powers behind the throne.

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
Trump acts as a great diversion from the real Presidential candidates and takes the media focus away from things such as the Clinton Email scandal, or Jeb Bush calling Middle Americans slackers. Trump is doing this as an ego trip, and no doubt to help out the GOP in any way he can. The GOP can use Trump to say all of the things they cannot risk a Bush or a Paul say, whilst still implying to the people that this is how the GOP feel about things.

But Trump is making it more clear than ever that it's not how the GOP feels about things. Charles Krauthammer is pretty much the top Republican ideologue, and he's an anti-Trump Jew. All the top republicans are falling all over themselves to oppose him, sans self-hating Hispanic Ted Cruz. Paul is courting every Jewish dollar he can get his hands on (Adelson, etc.), while Bush himself has spawned a criminal Mexican family, and does American interviews in Spanish.

If Trump sticks with it as he has and doesn't win the nomination, I would completely lose what little hope I have for America. It would prove the nation is too far gone.

The GOP is trying to block Trump from taking part in the debates so they can spend them fellating Mexico unabated. We'll see how that goes.

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
Trump and Rand Paul will be used as left and right guards to the real candidate. These people run interference by attacking competition and support unpopular positions to make the winning horse seem like the logical, respectable, moderate choice.

How many times does this have to play out before you guys get with the program?

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
^ I agree. I have zero faith in the US political system, esp. at the top levels. at the local levels maybe you get a few real guys here and there.. but at that level it's all controlled.

it's "political theatre"

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
Ron Paul may have been sincere but they let him do his thing to give the CTards some false hope.

They pulled them up high.. and then dropped them off, killing whatever morale they had left lol.

Ron Paul has been so ineffectual it's not even funny. he didnt' change anything.

I like Snowden because he caused MATERIAL CHANGES I CAN SEE. my iphone is now fully encrypted even from the cops. that's because of Snowden!

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
The mistake to make is to think that anyone on the ballot is an independent actor.

These campaigns are run on a corporate model, and most of the people getting into the races aren't expecting to win, but expecting to:

-Boost their Careers
-Improve their Personal Class Status
-Use their Poll Rankings as leverage in backroom deals with other Candidates
-Take Campaign Contributions on the premise that they will use the Platform to push an Agenda

and so much more.

I can guarantee you Donald Trump is not running for President because he expects to become the President. You can't be so linear in your thinking.

RE: The Candidacy of Donald Trump
Even at the local levels it's all BS. The local news won't say your name if you're not the incumbent or party favorite. Neither will the local papers. You'll get a mention here and there but they won't treat you as a viable contender. They want you in the system for years before you are allowed to have any footing. Stuffing envelopes, making calls, raising money etc. If the candidates who run are older, wealthier people they will entertain them for a while but the local parties will not help a newcomer unless they think they can control him. Everyone has their hand out and wants your ear soon as you put your name in. Tons of favors are done before and election. Many deals and promises and handshakes. There's no rulebook and the incumbents want it that way. There's a reason they refuse to vote for term limits. Everyone enters Congress worth low 6 figures. Everyone leaves a multimillionaire.
