Some people say that Donald Trump’s hard veer into calling for brown people to leave the country is useless because he isn’t actually going to enact any policy to send them back where they came from. However, those same people would no doubt agree with the statement “politics are downwind from culture.”
I have accepted the obvious reality that Trump isn’t going to enact any policies. It’s a shame, but it is what it is.
It was probably a little bit ambitious to think he was going to do anything. This is a game show host who ran for president as part of a viral marketing campaign for his game show, but ended up winning by accident because the people wanted to round up all Mexicans and eject them from the country.
Remember that Tucker Carlson said this back in December, in an interview with Swiss media:
In your book you speak a lot about people who attack Trump, but you actually don’t say very much about Trump’s record.
Do you think he has kept his promises? Has he achieved his goals?
No. His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things. There are a lot of reasons for that, but since I finished writing the book, I’ve come to believe that Trump’s role is not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does. I don’t think he’s capable. I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.
I think Trump’s role is to begin the conversation about what actually matters. We were not having any conversation about immigration before Trump arrived in Washington. People were bothered about it in different places in the country. It’s a huge country, but that was not a staple of political debate at all. Trump asked basic questions like’ “Why don’t our borders work?” “Why should we sign a trade agreement and let the other side cheat?” Or my favorite of all, “What’s the point of NATO?” The point of NATO was to keep the Soviets from invading western Europe but they haven’t existed in 27 years, so what is the point? These are obvious questions that no one could answer.
Apart from asking these very important questions has he really achieved nothing?
Not much. Not much. Much less than he should have. I’ve come to believe he’s not capable of it.
Why should he be not capable?
Because the legislative process in this country by design is highly complex, and it’s designed to be complex as a way of diffusing power, of course, because the people who framed our Constitution, founded our country, were worried about concentrations of power. They balanced it among the three branches as you know and they made it very hard to make legislation. In order to do it you really have to understand how it works and you have to be very focused on getting it done, and he knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t and surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do so. It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things. I’m not in charge of Trump.
So, if we accept that view of Trump – and we don’t really have any choice but to accept that view of Trump, because it is obviously the facts of life – then we should instead want him to start the best conversations.
And the best conversation he is capable of starting is: why are all of these brown people in our country?
He is doing that.
At Wednesday night’s rally in Greenville, North Carolina, the people chanted “send her back” when he mentioned Ilhan Omar.
They then broke into a “U-S-A” chant.
And it was all just blonde people behind the large blonde man when it happened.
The optics of this are fantastic.
It’s like Nazi Germany, American edition.
In 2016, there were chants of “build the wall,” and people wanted to eject all Mexicans.
We’re now talking about sending back black people to Africa.
Ultimately, there is nothing in the world more powerful than the mob, and anything that is done in this country can only be done with the implicit or explicit approval of the mob. The entire problem with this country is that good people who want to get things done do not have the ability to do anything because we do not have the support of the mob, because the mob is dazzled by Jews.
But if the mob is incited to rise up, then the details can all be worked out later.
Trump is inciting the mob.
“Send them back” must be the slogan of Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign. Whenever he mentions any disreputable brown person, people must start chanting this at the rallies. This will obviously win him the election. And that’s fine. But much more importantly, it will normalize the idea that this isn’t a country of values and principles, it is a country of people, and we are those people. These people who are not us are not America – they are an invasive, harmful out-group.
Trump said yesterday that he was against the chant, allegedly at the behest of – wait for it – his daughter. And Mike Pence. And other Republicans.
But it’s too late to stop it now.
And I don’t think he is actually going to stop it. This sort of sentiment is very important for his reelection.
“Send her back”/”Send him back”/”Send them back” must be the unofficial slogan of the 2020 campaign.
Just go to the rallies and start the chants whenever he mentions a brown person. People will go along with it.
He can keep saying publicly “well, I don’t know, it’s not me saying it, it’s the crowd saying it.” And that’s fine.
The important thing is that the idea that America is a white country for white people continues to be the main message, instead of some kind of inane bullshit about socialism.
