I see a new faction that's suddenly exploded onto the scene exactly a year out from the 2020 election that calls people like Charlie Kirk & Donald Trump Jr. "OpenBordersCons" and "Conservative Inc."
BLACK PEOPLE and JEWISH PEOPLE & GAYS....
What the hell are all these gays and black and Jews doing in this tent? Isn't it time we returned to our roots?!"
Because if there is anything that would STOP the Trump movement's outreach to the black community, the Jewish community, the gay community & all the other nontraditional Conservative groups out there,
THIS IS IT.
This is a political movement.
A group that makes it a point to yell "FAGGOT!!!!" at every gay person within earshot is telling me plenty about what it'll do if we let it inside the Conservative tent.
David Duke wanted in. We told him to get lost.
Richard Spencer circled the tent a few times. We didn't let him in.
Why now? Why this new faction? Why are we suddenly being encouraged to allow this?
No way he'd survive it. But he did, and boy are they pissed about it.
They still trot out the 'fine people on both sides' smear, two years later.
HOW would you do it?
What **countermeasures** would you take?
4) a white nationalist/supremacist
It hasn't WORKED. He's **still** reaching Blacks, Hispanics, other minorities.
How about this:
A very LOUD new faction that is PROUDLY & OPENLY
4) white nationalist
very very publicly being allowed into the MAGA tent.
It's brilliant, really.
start hurling racial slurs at Kanye West & Dr. Alveda King
start hurling gay slurs at Brandon Straka & Scott Pressler
start claiming Trump needs to look after whites first?
What evidence is there if they are allowed a place of honor within the MAGA movement that they're going to clean up their act?
What assurance can you give?
Will he stop using racially inflammatory language? Are he and Kanye gonna work together in this movement?
Let me just say I'm not sanguine on the prospects of this.
We're supposed to throw that away by making this new faction the New Right Face of MAGA?
I vote no.
Back when I was Never Trump I did a few rounds on here in debates with "alt-right" accounts who were insisting America was supposed to always be a white nation, they'd bring up documents from the 1700's to 'prove' the whole 'melting pot' thing is BS.
I quickly realized something.
They were people looking for attention, or political activists trying to create a "Trump MAGA White Homeland" social media presence & then use to attack Trump.
But I still suspect a lot of it was Lefty political activists role playing, because after Trump won, virtually all of those accounts faded away into the ether.
I'm not going to let ANYBODY touch that.
What happens if we open the tend door & the first thing they say when they get in here is "Why is that FA**OT & THAT NI**ER UP THERE?!"
If you're coming inside the MAGA tent, LEAVE THAT CRAP OUTSIDE.
It doesn't LOOK LIKE they'd be willing to leave the identity politics at the door.
It's really taking off. Black Americans are getting the message. Hispanic people are getting the message. Gay Americans are seeing we don't hate them, etc.
You break the unity of the MAGA movement, it's the only way.
You get people inside this tent divided back into the subgroups where they 'belong', competing with each other in a spoils system.
They're not doing it now, why would they do it then?
To get that unity, we LAID ASIDE OUR DIFFERENCES.
Don't listen to people counseling you to throw that away.
