By now we're all well aware of how frightened many progressive journalists and cuckservative politicians alike are, not only of the prospect of a President Donald Trump but of what his candidacy represents.
Trump is cocky, confident, and funny, which makes him stand out among the lacklusters and milquetoasts who fill the world of conservative politics. But that cockiness wouldn't mean the same thing if it were attached to left-wing political ideas and egalitarian rhetoric. The fact that he has a history of saying politically incorrect things; the fact that he openly despises the stifling atmosphere that political correctness creates; the fact that he doesn't put women on a pedestal; all these are more than enough for the usual suspects to get their knickers in a twist. And that doesn't even take into account his scandals, his reality TV shows, and his ruthlessness in business.
But there's something else at play here, which is what's most important: what his success in the polls represents, what it signals, what it encourages.
And that leads us to another group who may have reason to fear a Trump Presidency: us, that is to say, racially aware Whites. Before I can articulate this with the necessary clarity, though, we need to answer the question: what does Trump represent?; what does his success indicate? If we know just what it is that really has progressives and cuckservatives so frightened and disgusted about the idea of Trump coming to power, we'll get a better sense of what it means for folks like the fine readership of TRS.
Why Progressives and Cuckservatives Fear Trump
First of all, Trump's popularity reflects sentiments among the White American public that leftists and those who serve them find abhorrent.
White Americans—aside from SWPLs, of course—don't want to be replaced by Mexicans, or anyone else for that matter; leftists are more than happy to have their lawns mowed by foreigners while White workers waste away.
Whites also don't want their cities torn to pieces by "peaceful protesters"; the left is incredulous at the "aggrieved privilege" on display from Whites who can't afford to live in complete safety.
But half the guys I know who love Trump also love getting high, and don't have any strong objection to gay marriage or abortion. But that wouldn't win them any points with the Left—why? Because the Left, ultimately, is united by one thing: a visceral disgust reaction to the idea of White people having their own families, their own neighborhoods, their own countries. Not logic, not reason, not intellect—pure animal emotion.
How this disgust reaction was instilled, since it certainly isn't something White leftists were born with, is probably quite well understood by the reader and doesn't need to be explained here. The point is simply that it's there, and that without it, there would be no coherence to the Left at all (Steve Sailer has called it "KKKrazy Glue").
So it isn't just the opinions of these working- and middle-class Whites that have leftists upset; it's the very idea that someone would address them as a group with legitimate interests, which Trump comes quite close to explicitly doing. They're disgusted by it.
To make matters worse for the Left, Trump isn't Pat Buchanan or Ross Perot, let alone George Wallace. In other words, he isn't a relic of a bygone paleoconservative paradigm, or an outdated populist speaking platitudes that are sentimental for the old and meaningless for the young. He represents something new; he's a measuring stick of sorts for resurgent White nativism. And this brings us back to why we, more than any limp-wristed latte-sipper, may have reason to fear the Donald.
Why We May Need to Fear Trump
Some friends and acquaintances of mine recently brought this up, and it registered in a way it hadn't before: regardless of what we ourselves may know about the likelihood of Trump fixing our demographic situation or mounting a struggle against the Kahal, there are millions of White Americans who like what Trump is saying and do not have any such awareness.
This means that if and when Trump is elected, many of them will be content to think that anti-White politics have been successfully beaten back; their confidence in a thoroughly compromised political structure will be, at least in part, restored. If we thought Whites would go back to sleep in the event of a Romney Presidency, how much more must this be the case for a Trump Presidency?
This line of argument needs to be taken into account. That being said, there are some counter-claims that need to be made.
Why We May Not Need to Fear Trump After All
For one, not everyone reacts the same way to the presence of a mainstream figure dog-whistling White nativism. Some people certainly will become complacent, content that someone else is saying what needs to be said so that they don't have to. But that hasn't been my reaction at all—to the contrary, I feel more comfortable than ever speaking my mind about demographic matters. There are, doubtless, others who feel the same.
Secondly, Trump may do a lot of good, even by the logic of my less enthusiastic friends, if he makes a big showing as the Republican nominee but doesn't win the general election. Can you imagine how much more openly anti-immigration, anti-political-correctness, and pro-White Trump himself might become as a result? And more importantly, Trump having gotten massive support, yet still losing, might do more to raise White Americans' awareness of the difficulties we face than him never having been involved at all, regardless of whether Trump's rhetoric got more explicit or not as a result.
All this being said, there's a deeper debate underlying this difference of opinion regarding Trump: whether right-incrementalism can work at all.
Can Right-Incrementalism Work?
The essence of right-incrementalism can perhaps be summed up thus: if the far Left gets more power when center-leftists win elections, why shouldn't the far Right benefit similarly when a non-cucked center-rightist wins an election?
The analogy, of course, hinges on the word non-cucked. Leftists have long had a tendency to make "no enemies to the Left and no friends to the Right"; the cucked Right does the exact same thing. This is why left-incrementalism has been a winning strategy.
In order for right-incrementalism to work, rightists must do more or less the opposite: they must refuse to punish or purge the kind of people who yell racial slurs in lieu of more sophisticated or diplomatic means of making their points, at least until after our demographic integrity and freedom from pathological foreign influence have been secured.
Ann Coulter, for one, seems to follow this protocol; and Trump is a noted fan of Coulter. This doesn't somehow guarantee anything; but it does mean that there are people beyond our corners of the Internet who may have picked up on the necessity of keeping those who are more anti-Semitic than thou, or what have you, around.
As you can tell from the above, I myself am not of one mind on these matters. So I'd like to know: what do y'all think? is Trump worth really supporting? is right-incrementalism a possible route to success? Certainly something in the air is changing, and the demographic clock is ticking.
