Certainly seems so to me.
AltRight.com’s Vincent Law was pretty optimistic at the start of 2017: “Overall assessment of the situation: Feels great, man.”
Only problem is – it appears that he either left them or was fired, which means that AltRight.com is no longer even worth following (Greg Hood is good but posts too infrequently).
And that was after some kind of attack took their website offline for about three weeks, which is an unacceptable length of time for a serious organization.
(For instance, The Daily Stormer, which say what you will about it at least has technically competent people behind it, was only down for a couple of days when it came under an unparalleled assault from hosting and DNS providers).
Then there’s, well, this:
As TPM reported, Heimbach, 26, was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with one felony count of domestic battery in the presence of a child under 16, and one misdemeanor count of battery.
The arrest followed a bizarre sequence of events stemming from an extramarital affair Heimbach was conducting, according to the police report.
The white nationalist leader is married to Brooke Heimbach, the step-daughter of Matt Parrott, the Traditionalist Worker Party’s chief spokesman. Matthew Heimbach was also carrying on an affair with Parrott’s wife, Jessica Parrott. Per the police report, when Brooke Heimbach and Matt Parrott confronted Matthew Heimbach about the relationship, Matthew physically attacked both of them.
The group all live in the same trailer park compound in rural Paoli, Indiana, where the Traditionalist Worker Party is based. In statements to the police, all four listed their professions as “white nationalists.”
Only the very best people. /s
All of this is happening just as the Trump administration is moving towards 100% zrada [betrayal] on the budget, on the Wall, on foreign policy, and even on guns (!).
Republicans are demoralized, they even lost in Pennsylvania recently, predictions markets are giving a 70% chance Dems will control the House and 40% (!!) chance that Dems will control the Senate after 2018.
Trump will be a lame duck after 2018 and will be put out of his misery in 2020, at least so long as the Dems don’t wheel out Hillary’s shuffling corpse or some SJW ethnic minority harpy like Kamala Harris. (In fairness, them being Dems, that can’t be excluded).
I am really sorry to say it but things are tracking my Blackpill Scenario [which is not a prediction] pretty damn well.
Anyhow, I suppose the one good and lasting consequence of Trumpism is that he genuinely has shifted the Overton Window.
Immigration restriction is no longer taboo.
Even race differences in IQ are might be edging into not entirely unhandshakeworthy territory. (E.g., someone as high profile as Jordan Peterson has been talking about it recently – though admittedly only with respect to Jews, since noticing high Jewish IQ is more or less kosher).
As Audacious Epigone – one of the most hardcore Trumpists, though even he has recently thrown in the towel – stated in the comments to one of The Derb’s most recent article: “This doesn’t negate Trump’s role as presaging what is to come. Moses to the impending Joshua, John the Baptist to the impending Jesus, Gracchi to the impending Sulla, Caesar to the impending Augustus–take your pick. It’s clear now that Trump is just the warning shot, not the war bringer.“
