The unfortunate events of Charlottesville have revealed a very dangerous trend among the governing and media elites of America. There is almost full consensus that Trump made the unforgivable mistake of being morally equivocal in his condemnation of the two fighting sides. This view unites not only most of the elites of both parties, but it even unites them with statements issued by people around the world who viscerally hate the United States, including that great icon of human rights, the Ayatollah Khameini of Iran!

This should not be surprising. The consensus is based on a completely unamerican premise: that the government should be first and foremost concerned with the moral stature of people involved in violent clashes. The big danger of this is that it makes those groups who feel that they are on the right side of morality think that they are permitted to be violent against those they deem morally deplorable. This is the very thinking prevailing in college campuses, where students now feel it is fine, and even noble, to physically restrain certain people from expressing their views on college campuses.

What is really disconcerting is that this idea is now so pervasive among the elites that even Trump’s prepared speech, written by his White House advisors, carried this same dangerous premise. Trump had to, as always, go off teleprompter to say the one thing that is actually his job to say: even if only one side had some people with very reprehensible immoral views, the violent people who caused the problems were clearly on both sides. That’s the only thing that should matter for the president and the rest of the government.

This is very different from judging who has an immoral worldview. It is not the business of the president or the federal government to adjudicate in matters of personal morality. The president’s statement should have really just been limited to condemning “both sides” for the violence, i.e the statement that was not on the teleprompter.

If a group today decided to protest against gay marriage as “immoral,” many people would call them a hate group and there would be many counter-protesters. If violence broke out between the two groups, who should the president publicly condemn? The now popular “elite” view of course is that he should condemn the anti-gay “hate group,” irrespective of irrelevant details like who actually threw the first punch, and not those gallant people who were morally superior because they were only fighting against the evil “homophobes”.

It’s a patently unAmerican stance with a frightening level of support among our public intellectuals. The president is not the “moral leader” or “moral guide” in a free society and he really has no business preaching about morality (and “love”) in his official capacity (he can perhaps do it in his personal capacity on Twitter). His job is just to focus on identifying (and condemning / punishing) the people who initiate acts of violence, no matter how good their moral intentions are. Which is why Trump rightly said that they needed to first investigate the issue of how the violence was started, a statement that drew even more ire from the elite. “What is there to investigate when one group is Neo-Nazi and the other group is against hate?”, one sincerely baffled TV host cried.

In my own personal view, the neo-Nazis and KKKs and other truly “white supremacist” groups are obviously a bunch of irrational losers. Only a true loser with no sense of self-esteem or useful talent would shamelessly chant collectivist drivel like “Jews. Will not. Replace us.”

However, we should still defend the right of these Neo-Nazi idiots to hate whomever they want to hate, as long as they only express that hate in words. That’s the great invention of Western civilization: the limitation of “violent” hate to words alone. It is not true, as many elites and speech writers seem to suggest, that America was founded on the principle of “love” and “unity” etc, even though those are probably noble values within a practical context. Instead, the Founding Fathers designed a system that assumes that men will never be celestial angels: thus, you may hate me all you want and call me any evil, racist name you can imagine, but you have no right to put a hand on me and I have no right to put a hand on you for your hateful words. That’s the great American principle of freedom of speech that has thus far sustained the greatest society in human history.

Trump may have helped slow down what progressively seems like the inevitable decline of America by taking huge political risk when he chose to go off script by going with his instincts. Had he chosen to follow the politically correct cowardice of our elite leaders in both parties, he would have hastened the fall of America by allowing the new anti-free speech college violence — cloaked in morally pretentious goals like “anti-racism” or “anti-fascism” — to invade the rest of the nation with impunity.

Had he remained “presidential” and stuck true to the professionally prepared teleprompter, Trump would have allowed America to descend more toward the direction that the Ayatollah would find admirable: a society where your violence is hailed as heroic if it is targeted against a person deemed to be morally reprehensible because of the ideas he expresses in a speech, a book or even a drawing.

Neo-Nazi violence is obviously wrong, wherever it can be found. But it is “anti-Neo-Nazi” violence that, besides being equally wrong, also poses a grave danger to the very foundation of American society as we know it.

Contrary to the consensus of the elite, the president should have been more unequivocal in defending the right of the Neo-Nazis to protest and to even chant their stupid slogans.That’s the oath of defending the Constitution that he took and it is what truly requires resolute courage from him, so help him God.

  1. Is the President able to investigate how it is that violent (armed with such stuff as bats, at least) protesters “on both sides” got off the same charter bus caravan … and was the violence bought and paid for by the same Executive branch of the United States government that President Trump presumably heads up and manages?

    The present USA is nearly the whole of the northern part of the continent America.
    It will not dissolve into thin air.
    What the writer writes about is the survival of the USA as a world controlling power, or even the survival of the USA as a political entity.
    Cannot see why disappearance of either of them would be a disaster.

    Oh, we are long past emotionless, impartial leadership. Western countries expect their leaders to empathize, emote, and in general act like a kindergarten teacher. Remember after Sandy Hook, Obama came out and read a list of all the dead kids in a slow, melancholic voice? Cringiest thing I’ve ever seen a world leader do.

    To the screeching leftist, abstractions like free speech are at best a legal obligation – not an overall appreciation for freedom – and far less important than security, social consensus, and upholding the status quo morality.

    In other words, it’s a society with too much female influence.

    Trump relies on instinct only in a tactical sense. In the public debate he has good timing and a gift for the phrase that encapsulates the public mood. But Trump won election by giving voice and promising aid to ordinary folk who are continually screwed, bullied, and demeaned by the corporate-bureaucratic-educational establishments that shove PC lies and bullshit in their faces, and rips them off in every way conceivable. Trump will go down as a good president, even a great president, only insofar as he makes good on his clearly stated election promises: tax reform, an end to illegal immigration, a manufacturing revival in America.

  17. @Robert Magill

    Trump’s greatest feat by far may be his ability to to get people to show their true colors, to come out of the shadows.
    A polarizer like no other.
    To where it will lead is another question.
    Ironically, it is the right who has come out worse for the wear.
    Think of the futures of Kasich, Kristol, Will, NR, etc..
    Trump led them to choose.
    They chose the wrong side.

    Are you sure. What’s a Nazi? If a skinhead Hitlerite, then yes.

    But if by Nazi one means simply a nationalist and a socialist, which was the original meaning of the term, then America has vast numbers of both, the former strongly opposed to mass immigration of any kind.

    And why are the nationalists not entirely justified in taking that position? America’s supposed to be a democracy, isn’t it? So how does it serve the interest of the average American voter to have tens of millions of immigrants, legal or otherwise, competing with him or her and their children, for jobs, housing, university places, maternity hospitals and all the rest. The answer, is that it doesn’t and that the creatures of the Money Power in Congress and the slimeballs in the media who have made mass replacement immigration possible are all despicable humbugs and traitors.

    As for the socialists, who are they? The Democratic Party and its mass of social justice warrior backers, who are not exactly an “unhappy little minority.” They’re all part of a vast left wing conspiracy to establish a socialist tyranny.

    What’s different in America from Weimar Germany is that the nationalists and the socialists are lining up not on the same, but opposite, sides. That is Trump’s achievement, to align the interests of the common man with his vision of a vigorous, innovative, and competitive market economy operating with protected from cheap foreign labor competition.

    Beautiful, perfect words. BUT… When you are seeking the hidden authors of our troubles, remember this:

    Benjamin Spock, the American paediatrician, psychoanalyst, left-wing political activist and food faddist who taught an entire generation of gullible American parents to ruin ther children at birth with less affection and an encouragement of permissiveness and laissez-faire was JEWISH – although he was never prepared to admit it. One of his grandsons was so happy and normal he committed suicide.

    The entire extended Frankfurt Group of “sociologists” – Herbert Marcuse, Theodore Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Ernst Bloch and many others – who took their body of “work” criticising every aspect of western culture and way of life to Columbia University, and founded a nest of fifth-column “sociologist” vipers who weakened the foundations of the entire western White world by their anti-American propaganda were all JEWISH. They operated – and their cultural Marxist followers across America and Europe continue to operate – an intensely JEWISH moral particularist agenda against the entire White world.

    The heads of all seven American mass-media conglomerates and all twelve major Hollywood studios, which design, produce, distribute and market an unceasing stream of anti-White, anti-American establishment Marxist propaganda glorifying the mass-immigration multiculturalism, mixed-race sexual contact and indulgence of criminality, sexual degeneracy and social dishonesty which is destroying our world are all JEWISH.

    The leaders and controllers of the corrupt criminal organisation called the Federal Reserve Bank, whose utterly illegal, immoral and economically illiterate transactions with worthless fraudulent paper money and “fractional reserve” banking are bankrupting the western world and causing untold long-term damage to the lives of billions of money-slaves in a system which can never work for their benefit, are all JEWISH. The two main architects of the Federal Reserve Bank, a Jewish ponzi scheme which now funnels trillions of dollars in stolen wealth to Israel, were the bankers Jacob Schiff and his brother-in-law Paul Warburg – together of course with Meyer Rothschild. When they lived together in New York in the 1870’s, their side-by-side homes had a shared basement, which gave access to an escape tunnel.

    And this is just a very small taste of the ruthless, determined, anti-White racist, intrinsically JEWISH cultural Marxism at every level of our society against which we are fighting to survive. I have no doubt that an avalanche of further examples from the commenters here awaits your reading displeasure. The moral here, as I am sure you understand, is simply, When you seek the causes of our struggle and our destruction as a people, look for the man behind the curtain who wants you to look anywhere else but at him.

    And of course, whilst they’re busy with that, they can pass the time by funding, sheltering and supporting Moslem terrorism by storing barrels of fertiliser and electrical equipment in their capacious garages, basements and spare rooms in their huge homes until needed. And then in the evenings,they can assist int the kidnapping, raping and trafficing of under-age White girls for prostitution, disease and early death, to a horde of small-dicked degenerate Moslem males who hate the fat ugly wives they were forced to marry at 16 – or in almost cases can’t even get find at 46.

    “Nazis are an unhappy little minority in this country and no threat to the rest of us.”
    But America is good at exporting Nazism to other countries. There were no Nazi-glorifying parades in Ukraine before Mrs. Nuland-Kagan has brought “freedom” to Ukraine.
    And to be clear about the American “values,” the US has been arming the Kiev regime with offensive weaponry. The same strategists that have been supporting the “moderate” jihadi (Al Qaeda & ISIS) in the Middle East, while demonizing Iran, are in full support for neo-Nazis in Ukraine because of the strategists’ hatred for Russia. The corrupted and opportunistic Bibi is livid about the approaching end of the mass slaughter of Syrians by the “moderate” jihadis; there is a connection between the Russain role in saving the sovereignty of Syria and the sudden order to evict Russian diplomats and their families from Russain property in the US, this Saturday. The families were given 12 hours to pack and leave. Since the Israelis do not celebrate Labor Day, but the Americans do, the order has obviously come from Israel-firsters.
    “The United States has once again seized diplomatic and consular properties belonging to the Russia Federation and is in the process of conducting raid style searches of the properties which are set to formally begin on the 4th of September.
    These actions which first took place in the final full month of Barack Obama’s Presidency and are now taking place at additional Russian diplomatic and consular facilities in the United States under Donald Trump’s Presidency, violate clearly codified international laws which are contained in documents known as the Vienna Conventions.”

    “…ruthless, determined…” and lawless, since the tribal norms encourage any means for the betterment of the tribe’s members and the tribe at large. Among American and European Jews, the majority are decent people; the danger is the aggressive Jewish minority that, in pursuit of money and power, knows no laws, no humanness, and no ethics. The aggressiveness has roots in the tribal amorality re the “local” (gentile) laws. The aggressive Jewish minority makes the most dangerous Fifth Column in the US and EU. Nowadays this danger is becoming global.
    Defense of liberalism and “humanitarian” interventions in the Middle East (the latter are the ziocons’ main achievement) have generated the most spectacular cases of intellectual dishonesty. A “TV philosopher” Bernard-Henri Lévy comes to mind.

    Sure, we all know such things happen. But there are a number of things we can do to help stop the immigration mess, at the ROOT.
    The West/US can stop creating/facilitating failed states. Iraq, Libya, Syria etc are all fonts of refugee flows – States we deliberately “fucked up” for imperialist purposes.
    Also, stop neoliberal trade practices & all the imposed neoliberal “structural adjustment” programs. We know it simply weakens fragile economies, while creating gross inequalities. The UK, US, Japan, China, Sth Korea etc, etc, etc all followed paths of economic nationalism to grow their economies when they started out. However, having got to the top we are happy to play the pious hypocrites on “free trade” etc.
    Lastly: foreign aid is not wasted money, if it keeps countries functioning, their poor optimistic enough to stay, rather than flood the globe as refugees, whether political or economic in nature.

    How effective are the decent Americans against the evil Cheney and Rice and Bush? The satanic Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, maintains Bush Library:
    This Bush:
    And where is the Catholic Church to excommunicate the evil Tony Bair the Pious?
    How about Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton (another pious “Christian”) and the hundreds of thousands of dead civilians in Libya, including a huge number of dead and maimed children? The US has become a moral monster, accompanied and guided by the faux “moral victim” – the parasitoid of AIPAC

    I agree the article is just a lot of standard freedom of speech blather. It reminds me of a 1950s high school social studies chapter on freedom of speech. It’s trite, silly, girly, effeminate, like a standard talk for conflict resolution.

  51. Alden says:

    You’re right, it’s poorly written and the intellectual level of a Wikipedia article. Of course he comes from a non free speech country so he thinks free speech is new and exciting.

    Hi Alden, both links in my post are not for articles:
    1. The (satanic) Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, maintains Bush Library:
    2. Pictures of “Bush’ children” – the deformed babies of Fallujah, Iraq; Fallujah had been contaminated with depleted uranium, which resulted in horrific birth defects:

    So Jews are dependent on efficacy of other groups to behave better??

    You missed the last line: “The US has become a moral monster, accompanied and guided by the faux “moral victim” – the parasitoid of AIPAC”
    The MIC (mega war profiteers), FedReserve (defenders of their US dollar-based fortunes by any means, including the destruction of the planet Earth), and the Lobby (the amoral bloody parasitoid) create synergy through their mutual collaboration.

    Trump is simply the latest puppet in this Punch & Judy show to amuse the children, ie American rednecks & other half wits. His frequent bloviations are contracted daily by his handlers. A tiresome brat but apparently necessary to fool his befuddled followers. A comical parade.

    Yet you managed to read it. Bravo!

    I think the money that controls governments seeks to soften the blow for citizens who are beginning to realise that their vote is not really real, by encouraging this kindergarten approach. Men do it just as much as women. The whole political class has adopted an attitude that actually fits with their latent perception of the electorate.
