Because it is only ever a matter of time before this happens:
And then this can happen:
No doubt this will create a knock-on effect in other countries also: far-rightists everywhere will be doing their best to ride on the coattails of Trump’s success to push their views even further into the mainstream. We might have thought Islamophobia and racism have been big problems ever since 9/11, but they are about to get much bigger.
(Not to mention that the US will soon have a First Lady who doesn’t even have an American accent FFS! Sure, we have more important things to discuss, but I consider this to have symbolic significance: Trump’s US will be a more Western, less American US (as if his proposed border wall, attitudes towards Putin, etc. had not already indicated this…..).)
And this is the point. You believers in democracy really thought the past 50 years of anti-racist education had any real use at all? Racism is genetic and anti-racism is genetic! Racists cannot ever be reformed through anti-racist education, and anti-racists like us never needed it in the first place! By believing that people can be educated, and thus can be trusted to vote ethically, you set up yourselves to crash headlong into this mess.
To our team members, now what? Now is the time to go among all the people shocked by the election result to let them know in no uncertain terms that the False Left has failed them and will continue to fail them henceforth because it had been deliberately designed to fail since the very beginning. Now is the time to to teach them as much about the True Left as they are able to learn, as this is what it will take to win back the ground that they are losing to rightists day by day and will continue to lose until they shape up. Now is the time when they will be most receptive to what we have to tell them, so it will be our fault if we do not seize this opportunity.
Lucius, my advice to you is that you launch your party site ASAP, even if it is not fully ready, and market it specifically to #notmypresident Americans. If you can strike while the iron is hot, posting links to your site at every location wherever #notmypresident Americans hang out, you could recruit new members rapidly and establish your party as the centre of the anti-Trump insurgency before others do so.
With the GOP in control of both the House and the Senate (and soon over the Supreme Court), the first two years of the Trump presidency will basically be unconstrained. Excepting the possibility of an anti-Trump military coup by heroic American soldiers, I say again what I have been saying for years now: if you are someone who might potentially be targeted by Trump, BUY FIREARMS (sniper rifles would be especially useful), TRAIN IN COMBAT TACTICS, and ORGANIZE PARAMILITARILY. If the Rehabs (Robocop 3 reference) start coming in to deport locals by force, what will determine whether they succeed is whether locals have the means – and the will - to stand their ground and shoot the Rehabs as soon as they so much as set foot in the neighbourhood. This is Ahimsa.
I want to close by replying to Van Jones:
“You tell your kids, don’t be a bully. You tell your kids, don’t be a bigot. You tell your kids, do your homework and be prepared,” Jones said on CNN. “Then you have this outcome, and you have people putting children to bed tonight. They’re afraid of breakfast. They’re afraid of ‘how do I explain this to my children.’”
The mistake was in associating ethical behaviour with worldly success. The truth is that if unethical behaviour were not a massively advantageous competitive strategy in the real world, no one – not even Trump – would bother with it. Bullies and bigots proliferate because they tend to be financially, socially and above all reproductively rewarded by natural selection over superior types, especially within Western civilization where reproductive success is based on largely free-market competition for reproductive partners. The PUA blogs never tire of telling their readers: ”Nice guys finish last!” – they are very much correct, especially within Western civilization. Or as someone else once put it infinitely more eloquently (shortly before he was crucified, which proves his point):
“If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” – Jesus
We do what is ethical not because we expect to be rewarded with worldly success as a result of being ethical, but because we care about ethics. Of course we care about ethics so much that we also want worldly success with which we can finally build civilization according to our ethics. But we know that we cannot win by competing against bullies and bigots on their terms while retaining our ethics. There are therefore only two possible ways for us to win. The first way is by becoming bullies and bigots ourselves, and outdoing our rivals in bullying and bigotry. The second way is by using ruthless retaliatory violence to eliminate the bullies and bigots from the competition altogether before the competition has time to reach its natural result, including on the genetic level, thereby eliminating the need to ever again compete against them on their inferior terms. The first way – the PUA way - we will always refuse as a matter of principle. The second way is National Socialism:
“Since the inferior always outnumber the superior, the former would always increase more rapidly if they possessed the same capacities for survival and for the procreation of their kind; and the final consequence would be that the best in quality would be forced to recede into the background. Therefore a corrective measure in favour of the better quality must intervene. … The pacifist-humanitarian idea may indeed become an excellent one when the most superior type of manhood will have succeeded in subjugating the world to such an extent that this type is then sole master of the earth. This idea could have an injurious effect only in the measure according to which its application would become difficult and finally impossible. So, first of all, the fight and then pacifism.” - Adolf Hitler
Western civilization must die.
