Since the late fall of 2016, Democrats and other Leftist types have been decrying President Donald J. Trump as “not normal” and a “threat to democracy.” Of course, this is hogwash of the most rank sort. The same people lambasting Trump for his supposed “authoritarianism” are the same people who have created the modern American oligarchy. Tucker Carlson, the popular Fox News who wrote the single most brilliant and prescient Main Stream Media article on the Trump phenomenon:Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right | And, my dear fellow Republicans, he’s all your fault,by Tucker Carlson, Politico, January 28, 2016.

That was written before, let it be noted, Trump’s double-digit triumph in the New Hampshire primary—has continued to speak verboten things. Now he takes aim at America’s oligarchic class in his just-released book Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution.

For Carlson, moral and social rot in the United States starts at the very top—the place where Democrats and Republicans https://vdare.com/posts/they-want-to-lose-gop-congress-sounds-retreat-on-border-wall-funds-democratic-priorities to maintain unpopular elite rule. Carlson compares this American elite to blind drunk captains steering a sinking ship. Making matters worse: the fact that, in keeping with Carlson’s nautical parallel, “Anyone who points out the consequences of what they’re [the elite] doing gets keelhauled.” Gavin McInnes (banned from Twitter) and Alex Jones (banned from everything) would agree.

Ship of Fools is no apology for Trumpism. Indeed, Carlson calls Trump “vulgar and ignorant.” But he rightly points out that Trump “didn’t invade Iraq or bail out Wall Street. He didn’t lower interest rates to zero, or open the borders, or sit silently by as the manufacturing sector collapsed and the middle class died.” Basically, Donald J. Trump is not your average American politician. Thank God.

For much of Ship of Fools, Carlson comes off sounding like someone with his heart in the center-left. Some cheeky Twitter users might even dub Carlson’s latest book National Bolshevism.

Why? Well, Ship of Fools excoriates finance capitalism and the class that has constantly reaped economic benefits out of the labor of American workers without contributing anything of substance to the American body politic. The Democrats used to be the party of populist rabble rousers like Huey Long and Al Smith.

But Carlson points out that “the Democratic Party is now the party of the rich.” Rather than attacking mega-wealthy people like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos or Apple’s Tim Cook, the modern American Left is completely in thrall to money and corporate power. This hurts every American not in the upper income bracket.

Republicans are no better. They remain wedded to the idea of being the party of business, and as such many Republican elected officials support Open Borders because that would provide their donors with an endless supply of cheap labor. This support comes at the cost of angering a majority of Republican voters.

In sum, both parties have given up on the native-born American workers. And, beginning in 2016, American workers began pushing back at the ballot box.

Ship of Fools is a bleak book. It is also much better than the usual fluff penned (or signed) by Fox News pundits. Carlson tells uncomfortable truths and engages with topics that until very recently were only considered fit for the fringe Right (like VDARE.com).

Take for instance the displacement of white Americans, especially white working-class Americans. America is a nation of 200 million white people. Native-born whites pay more in taxes, provide the majority of America’s soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen, and are the offspring of the people who built this country. For this hard work and loyalty, foreign-born editors at the New York Times tweet “#CancelWhitePeople.”Hordes of Antifa types cheer on the displacement of native-born whites, while the political elite do nothing to combat rising drug overdose deaths and suicides in the Midwest, rural Northeast, and South. As Carlson warns, “White identity politics will be a response to a world in which identity politics is the only game there is.”

And, as anti-white vitriol increases and whites are demoted from majority status, Carlson predicts that white interest groups will form and flex their muscles when they feel that their backs are up against the wall.

At several points in Ship of Fools, Carlson sincerely grieves for the lost Liberal-Left of his childhood. He misses the environmentalists who cared about littering, not about some abstract thing called climate change. He misses those Leftists who cried about injustice in the world rather than ranting and raving at the behest of the elite class. Without an honest Left, America could further descend into corporate anarcho-tyranny—a place where businesses control free speech and only a small sliver of people enjoy the benefits of the modern and high-tech economy.

Ship of Fools ends with a warning: either practice democracy or be prepared for authoritarian rule.

“In order to survive, democracies must remain egalitarian,” Carlson argues.“When all the spoils seem to flow upward, the majority will revolt in protest.”

Explicit in this critique of America’s Ruling Class is the fact that democracies are unstable and prone to self-destruction. In modern America, the elite do not attend to the population, cynical race-mongering is used to win votes at the cost of internal peace, and chicken hawks like Max Boot and William Kristol still receive adulation in the Main Stream Media despite their disastrous record of cheering on military misadventures that kill thousands of Americans. (To say nothing of their fanatical opposition to Trump—despite the fact that he won the presidency when their catspaws McCainand Romney ignominiously failed). Ship of Fools correctly notes that this is what an empire looks like in its final days.

In this sense the elites may be right to characterize President Trump as a populist. After all, Julius Caesar gave the common man order, security, and bread in the face of a cold and sterile system. By attempting to dismantle the elite consensus, Trump, Trumpism, and America First may just be the first entries in a new age of all-American Caesarism.

We should only be so lucky!

    Of course I should have known better since in retrospect I doubt that our patron would either put his trust in princes nor in media personalities!

    Carlson correctly points out that most wealthy folks now identify as leftists. And why not .. they realize that all you have to do is mouth the usual politically correct pieties and you’re exempt from criticism. Bezos is a good example, he puts the classical gilded age millionaires strictly in the shade but he,s virtually immune from any scrutiny from our so called media.

    Same with Hugh Hefner, who put forth the proposition that women’s value came only from their looks. He was hardly ever called out for it, even in this so-called age of feminism. I was always amazed by this. The answer of course is because he always took the “proper” positions a abortion, gun control etc.

    Carlson is stating the obvious, and I’m wondering how long his job will last? I’m guessing when he becomes just popular enough(starts winning agents of the left) the knives will come out. The elites are winning by division, and when someone can unite the people against them; that person becomes an existential threat and must be exiled with extreme prejudice.
    On the other hand, people in general are fucking idiots, and identity politics will never give the Carlson’s of the world the time of day.

    has the same handful of dumb guests on over and over then says “thank you” as if he meant it while he never let’s his guests get a word in edgewise.

    They often don’t let him get a word in. As to having the same guests on over and over, you are right about that. That appears to be a cable-news thing: they retain certain talking heads on contract. They must pay them a flat fee, because they have them on all the time. The whole “cable news talking-head talking to other cable-news talking heads format” is pretty dull. When Tucker started out his show, he used to have on other, lesser-known people: authors, experts of various kinds, people who actually had interesting things to say and different points of view. Carlson’s show is now often little different than any of the others on FOX.

    he’s a gun nut.

    You mean he actually believes the second amendment means what it says it means.

    he has said “the US is becoming a socialist country” and “bernie sanders is a nasty man.”

    I don’t watch Fox News but I did Tuesday because most channels had baseball and TCM had Halloween movies.

    Carlson did well on the Kavanaugh heatings. But then he ended with a sermon about what would Saint Doctor MLK have thought of it all. That’s one of many reasons I don’t watch Fox. The MLK worship on Fox is as nauseating as middle school in January and February.

    Carlson even said something like here in a city with a statue of the blessed saint doctor this terrible travesty is going on

    I enjoyed the book immensely even though I’m a socialist myself. Tucker’s disdain for wars, technology companies, and the ruling class are a breath of fresh air. I also enjoy his show but I do wish he wouldn’t talk over the guests he disagrees with.

  17. I recall the time (years ago) Jon Stewart was interviewed by Tucker Carlson.

    Stewart: “How old are you?”

    Carlson: “Thirty six.”

    Stewart: “And you wear a bow-tie?”

    Carlson seems to have grown up a LOT since that conversation (and quit wearing a bow-tie.)

    In any case, what, in the USA, actually defines ‘White’? Color? Culture?

  20. Tom Welsh says:

    First up, thanks for the beautiful cartoon! That picture really is worth at least a thousand words.

    As a British subject, I mostly find American politics far too squalid and illiterate to bother with. Tucker Carlson seems to be a light shining in darkness: educated, urbane, logical, and tolerant of most things except intolerance. I look forward to reading his book.

    But I think he, like almost everyone else, has overlooked something very important. The present state of the USA is not new, and indeed did not set in at any well-defined date. The place has been undemocratic, plutocratic, lawless and money-worshipping from the very start. Apart from a few doomed mavericks like Thomas Jefferson, the USA was founded and has always been run by people who wanted as few constraints as possible on their piratical money-grubbing. (For some detailed evidence, read e.g. Gustavus Myers’ classic “History of the Great American Fortunes”, https://www.amazon.co.uk/History-Great-American-Fortunes-Gustavus/dp/1445580993/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1538896726&sr=8-1&keywords=great+american+fortunes)

    The only thing that is strikingly new about Mr Trump is that he makes no attempt to hide any of it. Indeed, he revels in the kind of sordid conspiracies and vile behaviour that previous presidents not only condoned but helped to cover up. Mr Trump’s great sin is his refusal to practice the sanctimonious hypocrisy that has been thought obligatory in American politics. He is Not One Of Us.

  21. Franz says:

    Thomas Chittum’s Civil War II was published independently and popular at gun shows around the mid-to-late-90s. It took this long to catch Chittum’s main point?

    In Civil War II (the title is provocative, sales take a back seat to accuracy in solo ventures like this) Chittum brought forth most all the points Tucker Carlson has just discovered. Good of Tucker to notice but it was noticed two decades ago.

    Even so Chittum was more accurate, he led his argument with the fact that the American Elite is united in the bottomless hatred it has for white working class. With feminism as toxic and media-stroked as it is now, the hatred as spread farther and wider since Chittum’ book. It’s just you can’t NOT notice anymore…

    Which might make Carlson’s book do some good after all. A major publishing house might mean the ideas will go to more than gun shows this time.

  22. Democracy, not Trump, is a threat to democracy.

    “Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” ― H.L. Mencken

    “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.” ― H.L. Mencken

  23. I saw this review 2 days ago on VDare. I very much appreciate Ron Unz’s putting VDare material up, as, for one thing, there’s no commenting on VDare. That was a nice job with the review, Mr. Bowyer, as opposed to Amazon’s editorial one which is basically blank. The customers’ review section there had 101 of them as of yesterday, but that becomes more of a political blog, as MOST HAVEN”T READ IT YET.

    To the couple of detractors of Mr. Carlson above, yes it’s hard to talk constructively in the TV debates. I! GET! THAT! However, Tucker’s ctrl-left guests from the Peak of Stupidity all just want to spot out their talking points anyway rather than quickly and forthrightly answer his questions. It’s fun to watch Tucker try to get the questions answered and it usually takes the whole segment for even one answer. I’ve seen his stuff only on youtube, BTW, but his opinions his monologues seem very truthful to me.

    I am truly surprised that this man has not been taken off TV already, or at least neutered like Lou Dobbs was. I don’t think I’ve heard one opinion by Mr. Carlson that I’ve disagreed with, but there’s still time. I! GET! THAT!

    I will read Ship of Fools when it gets to the library. In the meantime, there’s Jerry singing the Robert Hunter-written song:

    “Went to see the captain, strangest I could find,
    laid my proposition down, laid it on the line.
    I won’t slave for beggars pay, likewise gold and jewels,
    but I would slave to learn the way to sink your ship of fools.”

    Maybe not the original settlers, but with the waves of later immigrants, it was an economic space without too many hassles – “plutocratic, lawless and money-worshipping from the very start”. Yes, the identity of the US is making money.

    The problem IMO, is that “making and spending money” isn’t much of an identity.

    Thank you.

    I have the same, limited exposure to Mr. Carlson, almost all via articles and comments on this website. Some of his commentaries are (carefully) bold and well done; he seems sincere, as do a few of his like minded guests. The contrived high-speed “debates” with loony cutouts, though, are almost always worthless poo flings that are no longer even amusing.

    I haven’t added anything here, but am hopeful that Mr. Carlson or others with influence will understand that many people see him in this way. However, don’t change in the hope that I will ever go back to TV.

    Tucker Carlson is an entertainer. His show is good for a few laughs. Guests are often repetitive but it’s a formula for returning viewers.

    The outrageous position taken by some guests, and their appparent sincerity regarding positions so stupid and without merit, suggests it’s a big setup. Being outrageous and provocative increases viewing traffic.

    Viewers derive a sense of satisfaction when Tucker gets the last word against liberal lunatics. As if he’s striking blows against liberalism.

    It’s television. Not reality.

    To each viewer is given an outlet. People watch and listen to channels that confirm their preconceived notions. Fox dismantles liberalism, Republicans feel good. CNN dismantles Trump or insults him, liberals feel good.

    This is entertainment doing it’s job.

Ha, ha I have never hear anyone take down a neocon so effectively. Boot was just stunned. The neocons should have been shunned from political life, instead, they are now aligned with the Democrats and welcomed in the MSM.

    16th and early 17th century saw the rest of Europe and Ottomans allied against Habsburgs of both branches.

    You haven’t been watching much of Carlson if that’s what you believe. The mirror of the delusional Maddow might be Alex Jones or Limbaugh. The Tappers and John Berman’s might be Hannity or Dobbs.

    In addition to taking on the neocons, Carlson had an excellent program on the lies regarding Syria and Assad’s poison gas. While both parties are pro-war and applauded the U.S. bombing of Syria in response to unproven and eventually disproven claims of gas attacks, Carlson went against both sides of the war machine (democrat/republican). While people like Fareed Zakaria, Brian Williams and much of Fox News were creaming in their pants with elation when Trump bombed Syria, Carlson was telling the truth. Frankly, I was surprised that he wasn’t punished like MSNBC’s Phil Donahue.

    Those that rule us and those that give us virtually every speck of information know demographics. They know that it is an unalterable fact that browns and blacks outnumber European whites in ages 1 through 6 in the United States. Therefore they know exactly what is going to happen, and show that they have conceived plans on how to prepare for it.

    That is why every commercial promotes the mixing of the races. They are instructing European whites how not to become a despised minority, a people that everyone has been trained, conditioned and taught over the last 60 years to blame for all that ails everyone.

    That is also why we are suddenly hearing the ENTIRE media using the word “white”. Does it sound strange to you? You’ll get used to it, because there is going to be alot more spoken about “whitety”. The sudden use of this word “white” is beint talked about to prepare “whites” to step down from power. Those that know demographics and what is plainly there to be seen know that people everyone has been taught to despise do not keep power in a country where they are a minority.

    All they are doing are simply “get ready” tactics and conditioning, so that when the next generation comes of age, people, particularly “white” people, will have learned how to behave.

    Tucker Carlson is very smart and has been very effective in confronting leftists and neocons. Ann Coulter is also very smart and refreshing. However, both are part of the “controlled opposition” to the MSM-Hollywood-Ivy League-Washington nexus.

    Rupert Murdoch (FOX News) is a philo-semite and even serves on a board for the management of the Golan Heights. Note that neither Carlson nor Coulter confront THE JEWISH QUESTION. In her book, TREASON, the treasonous people historically are said to be “WASPS with three names,” e.g., Harry Dexter White, when White himself was Jewish, but hid behind a WASPish name.

    Trump called out Jon Stewart as someone who also hid behind a WASPish name, but Trump also does not confront THE JEWISH QUESTION and seems permanently ensnared in intrigue about Syria and Iran. Both his son-in-law (Jewish) and Sheldon Adelson (Jewish, Las Vegas magnate) have great influence over him. Jerusalem is said to belong completely to Israel and the rights of Palestinians apparently count for very little.

    Poster [j g strijdom]‘s ilk constantly praise single-motherhood and say “…it is not the kid’s fault….” (no, it isn’t). But apparently _if_ the child is not a left-wing fascist, then it must be his fault that ‘carlson’s mom ran away’.

    Re: ‘he was a smoker, now chews nicotine gum.’

    Isn’t this the same crowd that promotes abundant, unfettered use of marijuana by the masses? I don’t smoke and don’t care who smokes tobacco or marijuana.
    But these left-wing fascists have truly lost their minds, as Tucker opined recently, if smoking tobacco has become a strike against you if you are a conservative anything.

    I know all that. So what?

    Post was about Lepanto not something that happened 50 years later, the French Turk alliance against the Hapsburg Empire and the Dutch revolt against the Hapsburg Spainish Emoire of Charles 1 & 5

    It was about 3 Southern European powers Pope Pius 5 Venice and Spain defeating a very serious attempt by the Turks to conquer Italy and Spain and then move north.

    The France Hapsburg conflict went on for centuries. The Hapsburg Turk conflict went on for centuries.

    England, following its centuries old policy of instigating wars in Europe instigated the Dutch revolt and numerous wars on the continent After WW1 and WW 2 one hopes England will at last stop instigating wars on the continent.

    Lepanto was the greatest victory of Christian Western Europe against Islam since the Muslims came out of S. Arabia

    David Gerlernter(who had his fingers blown off by the Unabomber) wrote an essay in 1997 in Commentary titled “How the Intellectuals took Over” and that is how this all started. Gerlernter dates the beginning of the fall of practical management of our country to 1965. With the ascension of Intellectuals to the seat of power, we, as a country no longer look for a practical solution to problems, we look for the most elegant solution that will(we hope) result in Utopian perfection.
    So far this search for perfection has not worked and really has screwed things up. We would be better off to return to the 100 random names out of the phonebook(contacts list) rather than continue on with this empirically naive high SAT Yale Harvard nexis.

    Regarding the media at large and the Anti Trumpism, the supposed Liberal media posture and etc—I noticed a very interesting comment during the Kavanaugh debacle on another site worthy of some thought.

    The commenter said:

    ”This raises an important question: are the owners of the mainstream media actually supporting Republicans and Trump in these mid-term elections and 2020 on the sly? The owners are not idiots; they must see that by encouraging the unhinged left, they are consolidating the right and pushing independents and indifferent voters into taking action to support Republicans. This is by design. I personally believe that it is related to the ongoing change regarding support for Israel; this support used to be bipartisan, but it’s slowly becoming a partisan issue. The Republicans support Israel with blinders on; the Israelis can do anything and everything, and the Repubs will continue support. The Democrats are moving away from that, especially the far-left identity politics people, calling for BDS, a Palestinian State, etc.”

    We all know the US media and press is Fifth Column Israel controlled and the Dem supporters have been moving away from Israel support so a ‘fake out’ like this is entirely possible.
    Notice that none of the media bash of Trump has been about his Israel, Saudi or wider ME policy. The Russia hunt has drowned out coverage on Trump except for his crudeness and many business scandals which doesn’t bother his base and the liberals featured in the media are only fem activist against p***y grabbers and illegal immigrants sympathizers who don’t even pay attention to what else he is doing.

  74. The new face of Mr Carlson is not something I buy wholesale.

    He;s a little late to the game of conservative thinking and let’s face it — who and what constitutes conservative thought is a bit frayed. It certainly goes beyond whether one thinks the president is a buffoon or crass . . .

    It’s a way of life and practice. It’s caution on upending order and it advances changes carefully, but change is not an anathema to a conservative. Truth, is objectively observed — there is a divine being to which we must hold to account. Some of these issues are easy — easy and easy.

    Invading Iraq, Afghanistan easy calls, Libya, Syria easy calls. Whether we should be knee jerking about South African polity as he has — not to mention getting it completely wrong — well that is a much tougher call. The use of police stats as he has — hardly a conservative note in the chorus.

    The whining about identity politics which highly geared to weigh against the black population of 41 million, but has benefited the 300 million or so others — hardly resembles objective truth. Here’s why — its obvious that color shouldn’t matter — no kidding color politics bad form — but it’s a rather shallow pretense that one can start from ground zero when an entire psyche — established by whites touts — whites better for more than 200 years.

    it’s the affirmative action complaint — reverse racsim.
    1. no it’s redress a long standing biblical and social practice

    2. the system has been hijacked by whites and whites have been the biggest beneficiaries — sure ending it sounds like a bid for equality, but in reality maintains the inequality already in place — ignoring the other realities about the system itself benefiting mostly whites.

    There are plenty of observations that have value. But I am not sure that antifa is responsible for displacing whites and if whites have been displaced and lost jobs, homes, etc — then it a sure bet that blacks have been filling in those gaps – the numbers suggest they lose even by larger margins. Of course given their low IQ’s as is constantly bemoaned — it’s deserved.

    Whites built the country on the free labor and then cheaper labor of blacks. It’s hard to ignore that the country’s white citizens pitted their white foreign pals against blacks depriving citizens of labor and education — at the very least blacks at least spoke the language and only the US as home bringing with them very little foreign impediments to citizenship — but were rejected based on skin color.

    What ails the white population drugs, suicides, unemployment is not the fault of blacks. In fact, when blacks were dealing with these issues white contended that it was due too a lack of moral fiber —- courage, industriousness, If in fact, it has been polity, that polity is the same polity that played against blacks dealing with the same issues — and that polity by the numbers is owned by whites.

    Blacks are not on top of the political, social and economic forums making policies to destroy the country — a conservative would avoid such deceptive rhetoric

    But then it is entirely possible that I misunderstand the posit. I thoroughly love being a conservative. i voted for this president, I support him, but I have no illusions about his support for me or my conservative ethos.

    Though Ship of Fools, sounds like a great book.

Therefore, in a free system, whites will always be wealthier and more successful across almost all walks of life than either blacks or Hispanics. That has certainly been the case in South Africa. Their racist government’s response to white successes was to try stealing white farmlands in order to give them back to themselves; millions of dispossessed whites now live in borderline concentration camps in immense poverty. Same will happen in the US. The Ruling Class has built an unstable empire like the Soviet Union, one not built on a firm foundation with an appreciation of human nature and common sense but rather blind ideology and authoritarianism.

    It sounds like Tucker at least made mention of the fact that alienating the white majority is unwise and especially repugnant when done by non-white immigrants and how it will lead to the rapid growth in white identity politics. If he was willing to make that argument without condemning pro-whites like other conservatives then I have even more respect for him.

    Pretty much.

    Conservatives are dead end.

    If…..if they wake up enough people in time, not bad though.

    Or….they could keep people asleep long enough for that mix of demographics/full control lock down.

    South African whites are fully awake I guess.Great,a?

    Timing.

    We’ll see.

    Tucker takes things as far as he can and still keep his job. If it wasn’t for his ratings (the highest on primetime cable TV?) he’d probably be gone tomorrow from this otherwise pro-war Neocon Network. With his rabid fan base (no doubt expanded by his new book) FOX can’t afford to fire him. OTOH, that didn’t stop MSNBC from firing anti-war Phil Donohue prior to the Iraq War, even though he had the highest ratings on that network. You surely realize, Phil, that if you touch the Jewish question you die. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

    Tucker is great up to a point. A few weeks ago he had on Greenwald (sp?) a Jew, and a military guy.
    Tucker asked them why all these wars? One of then said, “Riad and Tel Aviv.”

    that was it.

    However, Tucker is a classic liberal , in other words, a cuckconservative. But a very good one.

    These days he goes on and on about not judging people by innate or “immutable” characteristics, like the color of their skin. He uses that to leverage, as in ju-jitsu, the sin of talking about White Men. Maybe Black Crime could be addressed.

    OK Tuck, but time to realize that game is largely over. The Liberal Era is about to topple.

    The full court press on Whites, in the form of the Jewish led Dem Party of Booker, and the Beaners and the Jews and Asians…is in full view.

    Wise up Tucker. Don’t know where else you can go, but like Hannity sez, buckle up. I assume Tucker has his millions stashed away. So, he can leverage his bosses at Fox Jews, with his popularity, but since his show is taped, he cannot go Mad as Hell –won’t take it any more.

    Who else would have him? How about Mel Gibson and Tucker on a new cable outfit? How many millions does it take anyway…and they could get subscribers to pitch in maybe.

  101. @j g strijdom

    Sorry… I must have missed something, so help me out here:

    In what way do Carlson’s background or private life habits have anything at all to do with the validity of his political views ? In what way EXACTLY is anything at all that Tucker Carlson has said or written actually incorrect ?

    Thought so.

    So, basically, you object to his saying these things – regardless of the fact that everything he says is palpably, demonstrably and obviously true ?

    You just made yourself look like one of the stupidest people on the internet. And by Christ, that’s a high bar to reach.

  102. @Baron

    So, if not democracy, what would you have instead?

    Classic, though tiresomely predictable, question. So here’ s the classic, if tiresomely predictable, answer, once again:

    Benign (ie. WHITE) dictatorship.

    Benign (ie. WHITE) dictatorship.

    Interesting.

    Any chance on expanding on that? Just point to anyone/anywhere, really, we could find how that society would look like?

    Those pesky details about finance system, defense, internal affairs, immigration and citizenship policies…stuff like that. Social services too.

    SOMEBODY must’ve put it on the paper somewhere. I guess.

    Easy about white. Not so about dictatorship. Even less about benevolent.

    Say, something as England during Charles I?
    Russia during….?
    Germany, perhaps, during Nazis?
    South Africa during Apartheid?
    Israel model, even?

    Or something new? That would be refreshing, I guess.

    Cucked Tuck…

    Subject: Tucker Carlson tonight on the electoral college, with guest. They talk about the Founding Fathers and….

    their notion that we are a Federal System, and that the States needed to preserve their relative autonomy to assure loyalty to the Whole of the US.

    The 2 Senators per state serves to conserve power for smaller states, etc.

    However, cucked -Tuck and his female guest overlook the Actual reason why the electoral college today is conserved, and that is that the smaller and whiter states, can hang onto the Senate while the Dark People of the coasts and big cities take over the House of Reps, aided by Jews and White tech race traitors who Luv the Third World Invasion.

    The Founders overlooked this dystopia down the road, but their three-fifths rule for counting Negroes was at least biologically right on the money. Three-fifths of 100 IQ (…
    White average) fits the African IQ today, 68, almost to a tee, which is what Black IQ would have been ca. 1780, and which Haiti enjoys today.

    So, here we are with the Electoral College protecting Whites against Blacks and Browns, while the Founding Fathers saw it as protecting Whites from Whites, or, rural areas from cities. Of course today, the Big Cities anywhere are heavily Dark as well as upper-middle type White race traitors.

    That leaves White conservatives barely hanging onto power.

    The Dems hate the electoral college only because they want the Negroes and Mexicans, jews, and upper-middle Liberal race traitors to out-vote the Trump voter.

    So, Tuck-the-cuck keeps up the old classical Liberal clucking on the electoral college, as if the Founding Fathers apply today. They do, but only for other reasons than what they were originally thinking about. If they could see what the three-fifths type people now are up to, they would rush to Jefferson’s defense and call for counter-revolution

    Tuck just termed the Chinese of China, “fascists.” Right Tucker. “Communist” does not have the punch that “fascist ” has. Still, China is a corporatist state, with a ruling class which is supposed to be ‘of the people.’ However, I don’t think Tucker is thinking about it that way.

    Tucker apparently is the highest ranked in viewership. That may explain the huge number of ads on the show. With his millions, maybe he could team up with Mel Gibson and ?..to come up with some kind of maybe even subscriber-based TV network.

    Call a spade a spade Tucker. It is all “immutable” difference, race difference. Immutable has been on Tucker’s lips of late, but he has switched to “innate” for his viewers’ comfort level I guess.

    “…if you touch the Jewish question you die.”

    Perhaps so, but insofar as the Jewish Question has NOT been touched, a tremendous number of people (in WWI, WWII, Middle East Wars, 9/11, Mossad and pre-Mossad assassination plots (possibly including JFK), the increased mortality rate of white Americans) have already died and many more will die as well (yeah, not saying that every single death for the aforementioned was due to Jews, but…)

    Grass-roots organizing has begun and must courageously proceed. Hitler recognized the problem, and the paramilitaries that opposed him had a logo. Antifa has virtually the identical logo and vows to violently attack “neo-Nazis.” Of course, the tricky part is not simply to avoid confrontation (i.e., surrender), but to confront the problem without ending up like Hitler. Earlier generations of Europeans successfully expelled Jews. The Nazis had started to seriously contemplate a Madagascar plan to relocate Jews and they collaborated rather successfully with Zionists to relocate a large number of Jews to Palestine. Less radically, the US was somewhat successful during the 1950s in intimidating Jewish spies and in pressuring Hollywood not to go “too far” (in a cultural sense).

    It is indeed a tremendous problem.

    Come on, Carlson is the best you’re going to get shy of some public access show YouTube videos. Carlson is a powerful force on the big issues and has Trump’s viewership. He’s effective in the war against the forces on the left and the neocon right and you’re bitching about tactics in alleyway skirmishes.

  109. @TR

    Tucker Carlson ROCKS! The only person I do watch, in the MSM. he destroys every leftist rat out there! I don’t care about either so called left or right. But Mr. Carlson interviewed with the disgusting Boot, was awesome!

    May be too late by then. We need him now, and many more like him.

    Speaking of late, sorry for the late reply!

  111. Tucker Carlson is a Neocon homo and should have been hanged a decade ago, but now he is your hero once again. What was that Weinstein quote about doing things over and over again?

    If any of you can ask Schmucker who did 9/11 on that Talmudvision please tell me what he says.

  112. @Baron

    Nothing. Why replace cancer? Excise it. (Sorry for the delayed response.)

    Read the first paragraphs of “Anatomy of the State” by Murray N. Rothbard, and “Why Bad Men Rule” by Hans Hermann Hoppe

    If men cannot govern themselves, how could a group of men (a.k.a. a state) given unlimited power (don’t lie to yourself that constitutions limit power), govern? At least don’t amplify/magnify the power corruptible, imperfectible, non-omniscient men have to wreak havoc.

    “Highly ‘literate’ and ‘non-squalid’ British politicians looked the other way while their British young girls were being gang-raped and groomed for prostitution by Muslim ‘guests’.”

    Not only by ‘Muslim guests’?
