From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

Sen. Bernie Sanders fires up hundreds at forum in north Minneapolis
By Maya Rao FEBRUARY 12, 2016 — 7:49PM

Sen. Bernie Sanders fired up hundreds of people in north Minneapolis as he vowed to address high African-American unemployment and incarceration rates, but the atmosphere grew tenser when some people pressed him for a more detailed agenda to help the black community. …

But he repeatedly shied away from stating his positions on whether African-Americans should receive reparations, to the dismay of several speakers.

“It seems like every time we talk about black people … we have to include every other person of color,” said Perry. “Can you please talk specifically about black people and reparations?”

How could the Coalition of the Fringes get along without white men to hate to give them something to agree upon?

Sanders acknowledged that he and Perry might have differences. It’s not just black people, he said — there were Latinos and poor whites as well. He said the time to start investing in poor communities was “long overdue.”

… Over the din of cheers, someone in the audience yelled, “We were promised reparations! We were told we were going to get it!”

Sanders said it was an unspeakable tragedy that one in four black males stood a chance of ending up in jail, and that young black high school graduates had such high jobless rates.

“That ain’t right at all,” he said, as the crowd cheered.

After Sanders criticized America’s high incarceration rates, a man with a criminal background stepped forward to ask what he would do for people who couldn’t vote because they’re felons.

“I feel the Bern, but I can’t cast a ballot,” the man said. “What are you going to do for people like me?”

Sanders said that after people pay the price for their crimes in prison, they shouldn’t see their rights to participate in democracy stripped away.

Calling the system “stupid and unfair,” he added, “This is just part of the whole business of voter suppression …my view is, people serve the time, that’s it. They have the right to vote, period.”

A number of people in the audience were aligned with Black Lives Matter, and activists in that movement began the event with stirring calls to address racial injustice before Sanders appeared. Sanders has sought to make greater inroads with black voters. ,,,

As the forum wound down, White Earth Ojibwe activist Clyde Bellecourt stepped up from the audience to complain at length about injustices faced by American Indians. Moderator Anthony Newb repeatedly tried to cut him off, asking that he state a question.

“This is a black forum,” Newby said at one point.

“This is people of color and I’m one of those people of color!” Bellecourt said.

… After the event, Newby said he understood the frustrations of the Native American community, but that the forum was intended to specifically address the black experience.

Back in 2009 I wrote in VDARE:

But let’s be realistic. Being, in essence, the white party makes the GOP uncool. And that’s only going to get worse as the impact of decades of indoctrination in the uncoolness of white people by the school system and MainStream Media continue to pile up.

Further, contra Karl Rove, the GOP will never be able to shake its white party image. It will either increase its share of the white vote or it will go out of business as a party capable of winning national power.

My suggestion: the only long-term option for the Republicans, the de facto white party, is to rebrand the Democrats as the de facto black party.

Not the Minority Party or the Cool, Hip, Multicultural Party—but the Black Party. Go with the flow of the fundamental Manichaeism of American thought: Black versus White.

Sure, it’s kind of retarded, but Americans, especially American intellectuals and pundits, aren’t good at thinking in terms of shades of brown. You can’t beat it, so use it.

Hispanics and Asians certainly will never be terribly happy with the idea of being junior partners in the white party. (Indeed, lots of white people have an allergy to belonging to the white party.) Hence, the alternative must be framed that if Hispanics and Asians don’t want to be junior partners in the white party, they get to be junior partners in the black party.

Black or white: choose one.

Or they can not choose and stay home on Election Day.

The subtle cunning of the tactic of rebranding the Democrats as the black party is not to criticize the Democrats for being the vehicle of African-American political activism, but to praise them for it, over and over, in the most offhand “everybody-knows” ways.

Republicans can hurry along the coming Democratic train wreck by, for example, lauding blacks as the “moral core” of the Democratic Party. Respectfully point out that the Democratic Party is the rightful agent for the assertion of African-American racial interests, and that advancing black interests is central to the nature of the Democratic Party. Note that, while individual blacks wishing to vote for the good of the country are more than welcome in the GOP, black racial activists have their natural home in the Democratic Party. That’s what the Democrats are there for.

Don’t argue it. Just treat it as a given.

Moreover, Republican rhetoric should encourage feelings of proprietariness among blacks toward their Democratic Party. It’s not all that hard to get blacks to feel that they morally deserve something, such as, for example, predominance in the Democratic Party. African-Americans are good at feeling that others owe them deference.

This kind of subtle language, casually repeated, puts Democrats in a delicate spot. Either they insult blacks by denying this presumption, or they alarm their Asian, Hispanic, and white supporters by not denying it. As everybody knows, but seldom says, black political control hasn’t worked out well for places as far apart as Detroit and Zimbabwe.

For instance, 2016 on the Democratic side will be interesting. If Obama wins re-election in 2012, blacks will argue, not unreasonably, that they’ve brought the Democrats political prosperity and therefore a black deserves a spot on the 2016 national ticket. If Obama loses re-election, the media will relentlessly blame it on white racism, and blacks in 2016 will demand a black candidate to fight the scourge of anti-black feelings.

Even if blacks are rebuffed by the Democrats in the 2016 nominating process, they aren’t going to vote Republican in the fall. But without a black on the ballot, they won’t show up to vote in quite the huge numbers seen in 2008.

Conversely, if the Democrats pander to blacks in 2016, thus establishing a precedent of a permanent black spot on the national ticket, that will raise severe questions in the rest of this awkward alliance.

As the black sense of rightful ascendancy in the Democratic Party becomes more pronounced, Hispanics will be demanding that their burgeoning numbers mean that it’s now their turn. Meanwhile, more Asians will wonder why they are supporting an agglomeration dominated by blacks who don’t share their values. And white Democrats will wonder how exactly they can prosper in a party where everybody else is allowed to speak out in internal disputes as representatives of a legitimately aggrieved racial group, but they aren’t.

The GOP faces a daunting future of their own making. Then, again, so do the Democrats. All Democrats should be helpfully assisted to confront this.

Of course, Republicans haven’t paid any attention to my divide-and-win advice. But the Democrats are doing it to themselves, anyway.

    Avolic
    (Avolism, Avolics)

    is the new word to describe:
    hate, hostility or dislike for white people, countries, behavior or their cultures.

    Some examples:
    Rev. Al Sharpton apologizes for his avolic remarks.
    They are a bunch of avolics.
    Your ignorance regarding avolism is sickening, I can’t even…

    There were more replies to my previous post than actual votes. The result was a tie between Hetanic and Avolic. So it was up to me to decide and I took Avolic, because it was my favorite from the beginning.

    Some question the purpose of creating a new word, but progressives create all kinds of words and many of them really work (for them).

    No one would talk about microaggressions, let alone know what that means if it hadn’t been invented by someone. There is a word for perceived micro-aggressions, but not a word to describe hatred against whites. As long as there isn’t word for it, many people are not even able to think about it.

    This is similar to newspeak, where you eradicate words in order to prevent people from articulating or even thinking about certain things. The Newspeak-Dictionary doesn’t have such a word, that makes it hard for people to articulate or think about it.

    The bottom line is: If it doesn’t have a word, it doesn’t exist!

    You can really learn much from Orwell’s 1984.

    My goal is to spread the word until it is used by everyone, like racism, antisemitism or islamophobia. And in order to spread it you have to use it, if you use it here it will spread to similar sites and so on.

    The best thing would be if Steve gave Avolic a push, if he uses it, soon everyone will use it.

    Remember the word is Avolic

    Steve, your 2009 post becomes more and more relevant as we head inexorably towards a country of bickering ethnicities. Rather than fight that trend, perhaps it is time to ask how to best deal with such a future.

    I would only add the concept of strength to the mix — acknowledge that the GOP will only attract a small percentage of black votes because only the strongest blacks will be able to look beyond the lure of black racial activists to see themselves as Americans first and foremost.

    I suspect most blacks, even if they're well enough informed to have heard about 40 acres and a mule, don't have any real conception of the timeline or of the historical changes that have taken place. I'd bet they have a kind of fuzzy idea that blacks were slaves on plantations until a few decades ago and reparations are part of the legacy of civil rights movement. It would interesting to know how much black history most blacks know.

    40 acres and a mule would mean a life of bare subsistence farming, and the African experience teaches us how well blacks do even that (although American blacks could well do it better than the average sub-saharan African, very little American land is as good as the best land in Africa, which is the only place the blacks have survived that way at all).

    "Rep and Sep"-accept a one time, but large reparations payment in return for voluntary but absolutely permanent banishment-is the only feasible solution today.

    As corporate agribusiness has taken over farming, the minimum size of a cash-positive working farm has increased drastically. And it's going to get worse as yields go higher and higher and as farm equipment becomes increasingly computerized. (Self driving combines have been out for years now.)

    What a wonderful idea, Steve! We could be an army of agent provocateurs. We could be right-wing “entryists” in the Democratic Party. But instead of pushing for RIGHTwing changes we push for bull goose loony LEFTwing changes, the crazier the better.

    You have hit upon white lefties’ weak point. They know how to defend against rightwingers: they climb up on their moral hobbyhorse and shout “racist!” and “fascist!”.

    But white Dems have no good moral defense against extreme leftwingers. Bernie and Hillary cannot say, “Negro, please. Don’t be stupid. We are not going to give a million dollars to every black person as Reparations.”

    So spread the meme that the Democratic Party is (or should be) the Black Party. Demand that the Party support Reparations. Demand that half the Democratic super delegates be black. Demand that half the Democratic Party officers be black. Accuse the Democratic leadership of being white supremacists for keeping black folks out of positions of power.

    I think you are right and all this is is lazy greed. You ever notice how lottery winners pan out? In the vast majority of cases they are impoverished in a few years. The very same thing would happen here.

    The basic problem is that you can't just keep throwing money at a problem. It's like the old saw about giving a man a fish, versus giving him a net. No amount of federal largesse will solve the problem, because eventually the money will run out and then ......

    Take for example, free university education. Basic quotas -- you can't have 100,000 black students show up to enroll for the freshman class of 2020 at Harvard -- will prevent entry. Then, if 13% of the basic entering class leads to poor grades, or expulsions, or suspensions, or a poor reputation for the school such that the other students self-select and simply will not apply there, what, exactly, have you accomplished? The answer is, you have accomplished nothing.

    The Big Lie of the left is that all problems can be solved by doling out cash. In fact, the only hope for anyone who wants to get into any revenue stream is to be able to do the work that is required, and without a lot of personal drama that no one has time for.

    You mean the real version or the official one? Most non-elite blacks I have talked to know a few bits of one and a few bits of the other. Blacks, average ordinary blacks, are timeless in that they live in the present: the only past they have beyond their own childhood is what the media present to them on a continuing basis. They know what black movies, black music-the currently popular officially approved black music-and their ministers tell them.

    Occasionally you will met blacks, otherwise relatively ordinary average blacks, who will surprise you. I recently had an interesting discussion with a fairly young black man who knew his male line all the way back to 1770 or thereabouts, and knew a great deal about American history in general. But as rare as that is among whites today, it's ten times rarer amongst blacks at the very least.

  13. Well, they certainly have the white Republican party and the black Democratic party in most of the South. That seems the only wining strategy for the GOP.

    I’m a liberal and I work 65 hours a week and because I’m single with no children I’m taxed more than any other group.

    Extremists republicans have this fantasy that democrats or liberals don’t have jobs or pay taxes.

    Please allow me to expose that lie by saying that I paid more in income taxes last week than someone earning minimum wages makes before taxes in a month.

    The reason I have to pay that much is because the top 1% doesn’t pay their share. On top of that they pay their employees low wages which forces those employee to get government help.

    I also have to pay so much in federal taxes because of republican policies in republican states that are failures so epic that these states get almost $3 back in federal help dollars for every $1 they put in the federal tax kitty.

    If republicans didn’t have epic failures I wouldn’t have to pay so much in taxes. This is a normal thing for republicans. Having failures and getting help from tax dollars from liberals. Look at Flint Michigan and their water. The republican governor cut a very necessary additive for the water that keeps lead out of the water and stops corrosion on the pipes.

    The cost of the additives were $9,000.

    The cost to fix the water pipes because of this republican failure. $1.5 billion. There are also the unknown costs from poisoning over 100,000 people with lead. That includes over 9,000 children. Children with lead poisoning have learning disabilities and behavior problems. Education for them will be very expensive.

    The facts are that republicans take so much money and after decades and decades their people are only worse off.

She made $89K last year and could have made more. She is pissed at the amount of taxes that she had to pay this year. I told just wait until Bernie hands out your earnings to pay for tuition, health care, day care family leave etc. for everyone else.. The Bernie sticker is gone.

    The Republican governor didn't cut the vitally needed additive. When informed of the mess that Flint's city council had made of the water, he wisely referred the matter back to the city. And rightfully so, after all, it's not the state's job to interfere in the internal affairs of cities.

    You people are impossible to please. When the predominantly black, poorly educated city council blew it, you blame the governor (because he's white). But when the governor intervened in Detroit's internal financial debacle by appointing an emergency manager to bail their sorry asses out of their irresponsible debts, you accuse him of dictatorial abrogation of the city's rights and a threat to democracy.

    The very heavily Republican states of the south-east are also heavily black. And that's a big contibutor to why they get so much federal money - a lot of those federal outlays are in the form of welfare payments to that segment of the population that uses it so heavily.

    The basic problem is that there is no damage to be repaired. Chattel slavery in this country was an evolutionary bonanza for Black Africans, as the population of the USA includes thirty-five million Black people who otherwise would not exist.

    The candidates for reparations owe their lives to the "peculiar institution", and one has to be a pitiably credulous dupe to think that one owes slavery's principal beneficiaries anything.

    Please allow me to expose that lie by saying that I paid more in income taxes last week than someone earning minimum wages makes before taxes in a month.

    The reason I have to pay that much is because the top 1% doesn't pay their share. On top of that they pay their employees low wages which forces those employee to get government help.

    I also have to pay so much in federal taxes because of republican policies in republican states that are failures so epic that these states get almost $3 back in federal help dollars for every $1 they put in the federal tax kitty.

    If republicans didn't have epic failures I wouldn't have to pay so much in taxes. This is a normal thing for republicans. Having failures and getting help from tax dollars from liberals. Look at Flint Michigan and their water. The republican governor cut a very necessary additive for the water that keeps lead out of the water and stops corrosion on the pipes.

    The cost of the additives were $9,000.

    The cost to fix the water pipes because of this republican failure. $1.5 billion. There are also the unknown costs from poisoning over 100,000 people with lead. That includes over 9,000 children. Children with lead poisoning have learning disabilities and behavior problems. Education for them will be very expensive.

    Replies: @Chrisnonymous, @Former Darfur

    40 acres and a mule would mean a life of bare subsistence farming, and the African experience teaches us how well blacks do even that (although American blacks could well do it better than the average sub-saharan African, very little American land is as good as the best land in Africa, which is the only place the blacks have survived that way at all).

    “Rep and Sep”-accept a one time, but large reparations payment in return for voluntary but absolutely permanent banishment-is the only feasible solution today.

    As corporate agribusiness has taken over farming, the minimum size of a cash-positive working farm has increased drastically. And it’s going to get worse as yields go higher and higher and as farm equipment becomes increasingly computerized. (Self driving combines have been out for years now.)

    I think you are right and all this is is lazy greed. You ever notice how lottery winners pan out? In the vast majority of cases they are impoverished in a few years. The very same thing would happen here.

    The basic problem is that you can't just keep throwing money at a problem. It's like the old saw about giving a man a fish, versus giving him a net. No amount of federal largesse will solve the problem, because eventually the money will run out and then ......

    Take for example, free university education. Basic quotas -- you can't have 100,000 black students show up to enroll for the freshman class of 2020 at Harvard -- will prevent entry. Then, if 13% of the basic entering class leads to poor grades, or expulsions, or suspensions, or a poor reputation for the school such that the other students self-select and simply will not apply there, what, exactly, have you accomplished? The answer is, you have accomplished nothing.

    The Big Lie of the left is that all problems can be solved by doling out cash. In fact, the only hope for anyone who wants to get into any revenue stream is to be able to do the work that is required, and without a lot of personal drama that no one has time for.

    Well, maybe the Republicans would become the non-Black party. Intermarriage patterns in places where is occurs (a lot of places) is largely between European, Asians, and Hispanics, so the color is shifting from white/non-white to black/non-black.

    I suspect most blacks, even if they're well enough informed to have heard about 40 acres and a mule, don't have any real conception of the timeline or of the historical changes that have taken place. I'd bet they have a kind of fuzzy idea that blacks were slaves on plantations until a few decades ago and reparations are part of the legacy of civil rights movement. It would interesting to know how much black history most blacks know.

    Replies: @SPMoore8, @Former Darfur

    You mean the real version or the official one? Most non-elite blacks I have talked to know a few bits of one and a few bits of the other. Blacks, average ordinary blacks, are timeless in that they live in the present: the only past they have beyond their own childhood is what the media present to them on a continuing basis. They know what black movies, black music-the currently popular officially approved black music-and their ministers tell them.

    Occasionally you will met blacks, otherwise relatively ordinary average blacks, who will surprise you. I recently had an interesting discussion with a fairly young black man who knew his male line all the way back to 1770 or thereabouts, and knew a great deal about American history in general. But as rare as that is among whites today, it’s ten times rarer amongst blacks at the very least.

  30. As the black sense of rightful ascendancy in the Democratic Party becomes more pronounced, Hispanics will be demanding that their burgeoning numbers mean that it’s now their turn. Meanwhile, more Asians will wonder why they are supporting an agglomeration dominated by blacks who don’t share their values. And white Democrats will wonder how exactly they can prosper in a party where everybody else is allowed to speak out in internal disputes as representatives of a legitimately aggrieved racial group, but they aren’t.

    Good point and I’ve been making a similar one for the last 15 years – the Democrats have built an anti-white coalition which holds together by focusing on anti-white policies, so Republicans should do all they can to highlight specific identity group greivences within that coalition such that this results in pitting different Democratic-aligned groups against each other thereby weakening the Democratic coalition.

    For instance :

    American history is full of the drama and struggle between its two historic populations and the quest of black America to be a full partner in American society. We’ve made progress and blacks, for a time, no longer had to ride on the back of the bus, but now, as Democratic leaders worked to import new voters we see that much attention in the Democratic Party has turned to satisfying the interests of the new minority, Hispanics, who are now the 2nd largest ethnic group in the country, thus pushing blacks to to the back of the Democratic bus. As Republicans we’ve been very curious why blacks have resisted our outreach and pledged loyalty to the Democrats who’ve plainly forsaken them by engineering their replacement with a larger Hispanic demographic, how exactly has being forced to once again be at the back of the bus worked to help black interests in America?

    The goal here doesn’t have to be winning minority votes, just sowing dissension within the Democratic coalition.

Maybe you’re paying off your student loans, but your boy Bernie will eliminate that debt. My one daughter is single, well educated and driven. Her new car sported a Bernie bumper sticker. She made $89K last year and could have made more. She is pissed at the amount of taxes that she had to pay this year. I told just wait until Bernie hands out your earnings to pay for tuition, health care, day care family leave etc. for everyone else.. The Bernie sticker is gone. And if you want to see epic failure and even higher taxes, join me in NY, a state run by liberal democrats.

And then they’ll need massive Black turnout, the only way to do that is “Get Whitey” which means reparations which means a White Tax.

    A White Tax, a tax on every White person, paid to every Black person, is in the cards for the Dems. It is by no means entirely a loser either. Since FDR and arguably JFK, Dems have played “GoodWhites” protecting poor, downtrodden, racially abused Black people from “BadWhites,” principally Southerners, rural people, working class people, etc. Anti-Whitism is just more class conflict and status signalling, all the more desperate since there are few other markers or distinguishing differences between GoodWhites and BadWhites.

    Almost all GoodWhites would welcome a White Tax even if they paid it because it would hurt BadWhites. So it galvanizes the NPR listening, SWPL, vegan farmers market, Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s shopper type of GoodWhite.

    However, it will of course enrage every other White. Particularly since non-Whites will be exempt.

    It’s far more subtle and nuanced than that. For starters, you’ve made no appeal to *the* fundamental deity of American life, political or otherwise, namely, the holy-of-holies, the sacred, the divine, the eternal Totem Pole of Power, which resides somewhere in the bowels of the NYT and The Economist, they being honored as the custodians of the holy places.
    What is that Totem Pole again – yes, the black god, chernobog is one of his names, is ensconced at the apex as ‘king of the gods’ – but, here’s the crucial point, the Yoni – Hillary Clinton is the living avatar of that goddess – has been engaged in an eternal heavenly cosmic power struggle with chernobog for overall supremacy, and sometimes the Yoni wins. So in the battle of the gods, supremacy is not fixed – it’s a divine war out there.

    Yes Steve, I know you loathe the Democrat Party, and are hoping your level best that the united worshippers of the sacred Totem Pole somehow get tied up in theological knots and strangle themselves – as much as the EU is doing – but you are not seeing the main point. Despite the eternal War of the gods, the Pole worshippers are still Pole worshippers, and they still damn everyone else who is not a Pole worshipper. The implication being that none of them will commit apostasy ‘turn Turk’ and go over to the Party of Mammon and the Plutocrats.

    The Native American issue is a tricky one.

    In general, though, I don't see how a people conquered and forced off their lands by a new power over the course of centuries deserves any kind of reparations except as an act of benevolent goodness from said power. Unless, of course, you also think the 200,000 Germans forcibly removed from Poland also deserve reparations, to say nothing of the Celts and the Welsh.

If there is legitimate evidence of a treaty legally signed and made binding but later broken by elected or appointed U.S. authorities without cause (that’s the important point), then yes, there is certainly a moral argument to be made for some form of recompense, though I don’t see why it would necessarily be monetary, since treaty-breaking may or may not involve loss of capital.

    In general, though, I don’t see how a people conquered and forced off their lands by a new power over the course of centuries deserves any kind of reparations except as an act of benevolent goodness from said power. Unless, of course, you also think the 200,000 Germans forcibly removed from Poland also deserve reparations, to say nothing of the Celts and the Welsh.

    I think that a lot more Germans than 200,000 were dispossessed from East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia by Poles after World War II, to say nothing of those removed from the Sudetenland. But if your government starts and loses wars, you may find the personal consequences unwelcome.

    Seth, yes what to do for the Native Americans ? I think they would like us to leave them alone. I think they are quite content with their multi billion dollar tax free cigarette shops, tax free gasoline stations and casinos. Not to mention their cartel size smuggling operations through their reservations. Don't want to rock the boat.

    Reparations are a done deal as part of the Democratic Plank. Both Hillary! and Bernie will have to up the ante each time to get the Black vote to win the nomination. And then they'll need massive Black turnout, the only way to do that is "Get Whitey" which means reparations which means a White Tax.

    A White Tax, a tax on every White person, paid to every Black person, is in the cards for the Dems. It is by no means entirely a loser either. Since FDR and arguably JFK, Dems have played "GoodWhites" protecting poor, downtrodden, racially abused Black people from "BadWhites," principally Southerners, rural people, working class people, etc. Anti-Whitism is just more class conflict and status signalling, all the more desperate since there are few other markers or distinguishing differences between GoodWhites and BadWhites.

    Almost all GoodWhites would welcome a White Tax even if they paid it because it would hurt BadWhites. So it galvanizes the NPR listening, SWPL, vegan farmers market, Whole Foods/Trader Joe's shopper type of GoodWhite.

    However, it will of course enrage every other White. Particularly since non-Whites will be exempt.

  47. “Republicans haven’t paid any attention to my divide-and-win advice.”

    They were already following your advice before you gave it, Steve!

    The neocon establishment has been dog whistling this message my entire life.

    For a time during the early 1990s, the dog whistle was laid aside for more explicit appeals. Coincidentally, this was around the time the Nation of Islam published a book documenting the massively disproportionate role of Jews in the trans-Atlantic slave trade, and even Spike Lee was getting a little bit uppity with the ADL.

    This White-party-vs.-Black-party branding provided much of the emotional glue holding together the Republican Party tripod – family values, free markets and jingoism. (“Decadent Blacks, Black moochers, Muslims and Russians are just like Blacks” screeched the dog whistle.)

    As you well know, the tripod was a sham.

    They were never serious about opposing the institutionalization of the sexual revolution – if they had been, they would have advocated effective strategies against judicial legislation, not court packing or constitutional amendments.

    “Free markets” was a code word for privatize the profits, socialize the costs. Remember how Kudlow and the rest of them screamed for bailouts in 2008? Bailout or let the world burn! Those were the two choices they presented to us. Never mind that Sweden instituted a bailout alternative in a similar situation in the early 1990s, Iceland and (eventually) nationalist Hungary instituted bailout alternatives in response to 2008, and Democratic congressman Peter DeFazio had a plan for a bailout alternative in America. (Incidentally, DeFazio has a good NumbersUSA score, for a Democrat). In Sweden, Iceland and Hungary the economy recovered. In America during the Obama years, the economy stagnated while the Wall Street culprits who caused the painfully predictable housing bubble/crash reaped a windfall. And of course, I don’t need to tell you that mass immigration is just another instance of privatize the profits/socialize the costs.

    Jingoism is , by definition, a scam – the harnessing of simpleminded patriotism to support wars which not only do not advance but actually undermine national interests.

    Thanks to Trump, the Republican party is changing. The wobbly old tripod is being replaced with a solid, coherent, nationalist four cornered chair:

    1. Immigration restriction. Build the wall, deport the illegals, reduce legal immigration and suspend Muslim immigration – or suspend all immigration, if liberals don’t want to single out Muslims. This would reduce unemployment, raise wages, reduce housing costs, and greatly reduce government expenses (healthcare, education, law enforcement), especially at the state and local level where taxes are at their most regressive.

    2. Friendly relations with Russia based on mutual respect. This diplomacy will defend Europe from the migrant invasion and protect Syrian Christians from the Sunni jihadists at minimal cost. The savings from this less expensive foreign policy can be used to finance domestic infrastructure spending and/or working class tax cuts.

    3. Tax cuts for the American working class, not for hedge funds and foreign factories. The Democrat establishment claims to want progressive taxes and the Republican establishment claims to want tax cuts. Give them both what they demand.

    4. Take the social issues out of national politics. Let New York have New York values, and let Iowa have Iowa values. A strong minded president wouldn’t allow federal judges to unconstitutionally trample this reasonable solution to the culture wars.

    The neocons, of course, will desert to Hillary en masse rather than support Trump and this nationalist platform.

    On the other hand, Trump will greatly increase his levels of support among both Whites and Blacks, and American Indians for that matter, as the campaign progresses and the benefits of his platform become better known. After all, the media, the big donors and political correctness are losing their ability to conceal the truth.

    The Republicans will indeed become known as the White party, and the Democrats will indeed become known as the party of an obnoxious minority no one really likes to be associated with, but the days of scapegoating Blacks are over.

    You people are impossible to please. When the predominantly black, poorly educated city council blew it, you blame the governor (because he's white). But when the governor intervened in Detroit's internal financial debacle by appointing an emergency manager to bail their sorry asses out of their irresponsible debts, you accuse him of dictatorial abrogation of the city's rights and a threat to democracy.

    I think you are right and all this is is lazy greed. You ever notice how lottery winners pan out? In the vast majority of cases they are impoverished in a few years. The very same thing would happen here.

    The basic problem is that you can't just keep throwing money at a problem. It's like the old saw about giving a man a fish, versus giving him a net. No amount of federal largesse will solve the problem, because eventually the money will run out and then ......

    Take for example, free university education. Basic quotas -- you can't have 100,000 black students show up to enroll for the freshman class of 2020 at Harvard -- will prevent entry. Then, if 13% of the basic entering class leads to poor grades, or expulsions, or suspensions, or a poor reputation for the school such that the other students self-select and simply will not apply there, what, exactly, have you accomplished? The answer is, you have accomplished nothing.

    The Big Lie of the left is that all problems can be solved by doling out cash. In fact, the only hope for anyone who wants to get into any revenue stream is to be able to do the work that is required, and without a lot of personal drama that no one has time for.

    Extremists republicans have this fantasy that democrats or liberals don't have jobs or pay taxes.

    Please allow me to expose that lie by saying that I paid more in income taxes last week than someone earning minimum wages makes before taxes in a month.

    The reason I have to pay that much is because the top 1% doesn't pay their share. On top of that they pay their employees low wages which forces those employee to get government help.

    I also have to pay so much in federal taxes because of republican policies in republican states that are failures so epic that these states get almost $3 back in federal help dollars for every $1 they put in the federal tax kitty.

    If republicans didn't have epic failures I wouldn't have to pay so much in taxes. This is a normal thing for republicans. Having failures and getting help from tax dollars from liberals. Look at Flint Michigan and their water. The republican governor cut a very necessary additive for the water that keeps lead out of the water and stops corrosion on the pipes.

    The cost of the additives were $9,000.

    The cost to fix the water pipes because of this republican failure. $1.5 billion. There are also the unknown costs from poisoning over 100,000 people with lead. That includes over 9,000 children.
