Contempt in Stone

A reader, commenting here as Reader, drew my attention to a Ross Douthat article today in the Journal of Mexican billionaires

The piece is a keening lament at the failure of Republican Party elders to quash the Trump candidacy at its spring crest. He views their capitulation to primary results as the fuel that is lighting the party’s self-immolation. That Republicans agreed to field the voters’ preference is something he regards as a stupendous mistake. Douthat deploys the term “compromise” multiple times in describing the party’s concession to its voters. And finding that description wan through overuse, he proceeds to brighten the sentiment by calling the acceptance of Trump’s nomination a “surrender.”

A surrender to whom, motherfucker?

It certainly wasn’t a surrender to Donald Trump. A candidate holds no power beyond the votes he has accumulated. I notice the party didn’t compromise with or surrender to Tom Tancredo in 2008. That they have now done so to Trump is not what is more favorably regarded as sacred democracy when blacks and the dead vote democrat but rather, by Douthat’s implication, a grim example of Republicans’ moral infirmity.

What a statement of cake-eating contempt.

The Republican party’s alleged ‘surrender’ was to its constituents. The people that party exists to serve. This being a relationship enduringly confused by those at the Acela end of it.

Politicians, lobbyists, pundits, and every one of you scavengers and parasites in the Republican ecosystem exist because its base of voters makes the party viable. Not you. A tick rides on the dog’s back for so long it eventually forgets who’s doing the walking.

You Paul Ryan, Ben Sasse, Rick Wilson, and John McCain are apparatchiks. Stewards. Showmen and functionaries. You only have value in the party to the extent you have value to its voters. They don’t serve at your pleasure, and they don’t require your approval of their choices. That choice was made clearly and unequivocally by tens of millions of people who do the actual work in this country that pays for your prostitutes and pomposity.

I understand if you disagree with the selection. Keep your goddamned mouth shut. Your fiduciary responsibility as a party hack is to lubricate the political machine. If unable to perform even that menial task, then you are merely worthless. Yet so many of you have aspired to be worse. You have actively sabotaged your constituents’ choice. The people who made that choice have every right to their candidate receiving a fair hearing in the general election. But with that possibility foreclosed by a uniformly corrupt media, they at least expect their own party apparatus to sulk when it will not help.

But that was asking too much. No, a phalanx of you leap on 11 year-old pretext to withdraw support and demand the nominee step down a month from the election. You could have observed the obvious: that far greater concerns are at issue in this election than antique machismo. Or you could have simply said “no comment.” Instead you unsheathed the knives.

But you didn’t stab Trump in the back. Just as it wasn’t him you originally surrendered to. It was millions of republican voters who took your blade. Win or lose, Donald will remain an aging playboy plutocrat fully-insulated from the malign globalism he was nominated to combat. Your constituents–unlike your donors and patrons–do not enjoy that felicitous buffer of 10-figure wealth. They are who you have betrayed, not him. It is their values you have defecated upon while sententiously droning about your own. And if God grants man memory beyond the end of his nose, I pray they never forget.

Some neocon pundits, politicians, and pilotfish have announced to the interest of absolutely no one that they can not share a party with Trump’s plurality base. I imagine more will follow. None of you will be missed.

Go to hell.

  1. Well said! And the Republican cabal probably were responsible for leaking that video where Trump talks about women throwing themselves at famous guys (heavens to Betsy!). You know what’s incredible? These dumb cucks think they’re going to put Humpty Dumpty back together again in 2020 and beyond and be able to run Ryan or Rubio on the platform of more tax cuts and open borders.

  2. I suggest everyone brush up on their noose tying skills. Many hands make for light work. And there will be much work to be done if Trump cannot correct our trajectory.

      • Nuremberg II

        We’ll do it on a sunny day so it can be a family picnic occasion. We wouldn’t want to get your feelings wet.

      • If this goes as I think it will, the “authorities” will become first-strike targets. And by the way, I expect “rain for a week” to be the easy day that was yesterday.

      • I’ve been outside in the rain for a week. What’s your point, other than you have none? Cops and those whom the elitists think will protect them will either stand by and watch, or will be running home to protect their families.

  3. While I enjoyed your rant here, and agree with you 100% how backwards things seem to work nowadays, the republican party no longer functions in a manner even remotely similar to way the you described it’s purpose. They don’t care. Their only goal in life is reelection. They must walk a very narrow line that involves a combination of doing what the voters want and keeping their donors(owners) happy. They follow the polls on the voters, making sure they manage to keep at least a sizable % of them happy enough to vote for them next time around. Even if they piss a bunch of them off in situations such as the one we are witnessing, they still have the corporate money to play endless ads in their district telling their pissed off constituents that they’d better vote for them or else the democrat will get in office. Usually it works. Reminding them of their true duty is a pointless exercise.

    • Gator,

      I would add that politicians of BOTH parties, Dem and ‘Pub, only goal is reelection. The common slob, voter, doesn’t matter. Ultimately, it is the voter themselves responsible for the condition fUSA is in. No one person deserves to be reelected time and time again. As you certainly can recall, these professional politicians call it a “job”. It is not. It is supposed to be community service.

      Look in the mirror. If you ever voted more than once for the same candidate, you, we, I, us….are the problem.

  4. The more I see of Trump the more I like him. Over the last few weeks his speeches have at times broken into wonderful moving rhapsodies on America and Nationalism. Debate # 2 was a work of art on Trumps part. Trump may be the amazing Genius he says he is. Trump may save us, maybe he already has.

    • Agreed, I feel the same way Peter, he’s been growing on me and I feel like he is a patriot because he wants to bring home the American companies, force them to stop wallowing in the filthy lucre and pay a fair wage or be punished as they should be. He wants to cut the taxes on us for once, since he knows we’ve been carrying everyone on our back. But today he really articulated what’s up – globalist internationalist elites (((YKW))) sucking the marrow from our bones. He really hit her hard today, and we will never forget the likes of Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush and the Bushies – they will pay for their perfidy. I will never vote for either of them if they try for the Oval office, and nearly all the Republicans have lost their balls and cravenly slipped over to the other side. Disgusting.

  6. It amazes me that the Republican Party does not understand a Hilary victory will mean the death of the Republican Party. I will give Hilary one thing: she is quite transparent about her desire to destroy whatever society can be maintained by your typical Republican voter, and will import more Third World diaspora as fast as the rafts will float.

    To pick one random example, in Arizona, according to the results of a cursory Google search: 43% of the children under 18 in 2012 were Hispanic, while 42% where white. I’d bet good money that figure is more Hispanic and less white today. Which means if you walled Arizona today, and completely stopped the flow of people in or out, Arizona’s future is Hispanic. How does McCain, and his Senate companion Jeff Flake, ever think they’re going to win a Senate election in a Hispanic state? By saying “muh constitution”? Is there any evidence whatsoever of a rich untapped vein of support for strict constructionism among Mexican squatters?

    Republican Party apparatchiks collectively remind me of that movie “The Happening”, where people get infected by a virus that makes them kill themselves. It’s horrifying to watch. Don’t these people understand that they are, in effect, laying down in front of the mower? Not only that, but Ryan, McCain, et al. seem to be fighting for position in front of the advancing mower.

    This advice is no doubt superfluous here, but stay fit, buy guns, and stay alert. Hopefully it stops at Brazil, and doesn’t advance to Zimbabwe.

  7. The Republican Party went tits up after Reagan. The Frankfurt School party, aka Democratic Party, tapped into the resentments of all those who believe themselves marginalized (often marginalized for good reason) and created a culture of whiners directed by the sociopathic who prey on them. I voted for Perot and Buchanan, would never vote for an R or D again, save one, who we all know is not a party apparatchik but rather an outsider speaking for the traditionalist who have been rendered mute by those who have a great big hole where a self and soul should be and wish that everyone else shares their misery. If Trump loses, one hopes the parties go down with him and the traditionalists adopt the tactics of those who are determined to eradicate the last vestiges of a worthwhile society.

    I reposted this on The Burning Platform, as I do most of your essays.

    The righteous wrath in your writing is to be savored. I wish that your essays were more widely distributed around the web. You should have received the Nobel Prize in literature, not Bob Dylan.

    Keep it up. I actually enjoy reading almost every line, which is not the case with most of the political essays I read on the web; they are informative, infuriating, but not anywhere near as pleasurable as your essays.

    (I actually also find the writing of modernheretic3000 very polemic, but without subtlety.)

    Thanks.

  9. I wrote to the Western Rifle Shooters Association again mentioning you. Please consider submitting your essays to them. They have the skills our side may need in the near future. Let’s rile them up.

  10. Righteous shit, Porter.

    Maybe I’m projecting, but I think it’s pretty clear that a lot of people have clung to Trump so fiercely because he is able and willing to do our dirty work. He’s not afraid to get doxxed, called raciss, etc. Hope springs eternal, but if he loses, then it truly is in the hands of the alt-right, and that’s kind of scary. If there were a Million Uncucked Man march on D.C., I couldn’t possibly risk the political blowback I’d get if I took the day off and went. Millions in globocorp warrens are in a similar straight jacket. Aside from a few checks to VDARE and Sailer and a few others, there’s pitifully little most of us are willing to do between the privacy of voting and the necessity of civil war. That’s how we end up with Brazil or worse. I’m sure the skittles are even counting on it, knowing they still sit atop the food chain in such an environment.

    Trump was supposed to be our elected Pinochet, but now we’ll probably need a real one.

    • Poolside: You might want to reconsider. If a lot of us don’t take that day off, so to speak, we’re choosing your other alternative. It may come to that anyway, but we owe it to our forebears and to our progeny to try all other options first… or not…

  11. The likes of McCain and his fellow apparatchiks play the role of sheepdogs, herding the voters in the direction desired by the their billionaire donors and media puppetmasters. But the sheeple are refusing to go down the path marked “Slaughterhouse”. Trump can never be forgiven for his part in this.

  12. Lawdog: It’s customary to cite immigration as the only issue that matters. And aside from going nuclear with Russia, that is absolutely correct…in 1986. But as you note, that battle was lost already, and with little fanfare. A “minority” majority is being disgorged out of our maternity wards as we speak. Europe lags that kosher milestone by only a few years.

    Thus the left gets its population replacement without another single immigrant, who serve now simply as accelerants. So the only issue that actually matters in the West is repatriation after immigration. And that’s going to be even less pleasant than being called racist.

    DNP: It’s the gilded cage. And a man would strain to overstate how much of the left’s cultural power results from rock-solid conservative businessmen. They are liberalism’s duplicitous enforcers. If no employer ever cravenly fired staff at the invocation of raysis, then momentum and enthusiasm on the dissident right would be multiples higher. Imagine instead if being anti-white ended income streams (including EBT). Most of the country’s liberals would be living underground and we’d be the ones demanding ARE YOU TOO MUCH OF A COWARD TO POST UNDER YOUR OWN NAME, MARK ZUCKERBERG??

    Yojimbo: Thanks again for the kind words and advocacy. Though given that I have bombed far fewer people into a pink slurry than has Obama, the Peace Prize is probably more appropriate.

    • Um, now it’s about the Supreme Court. The next few appointments will chart our nation’s course for generations to come, assuming our nation survives that long…

  15. Except from Trump’s speech in West Palm Beach, Florida, October 14, 2016. Please feel free to copy and post elsewhere. I’ll leave it to you to add any relevant (((punctuation marks))).

    “There is nothing the political establishment will not do, no lie that they won’t tell, to hold their prestige and power at your expense, and that’s what’s been happening.
    The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exist for only one reason, to protect and enrich itself. The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass, involves trillions of dollars controlled by many countries, corporations and lobbyists. For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind.

    Our campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven’t seen before. This is not simply another four year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilisation that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.
    The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.

    For them it’s war. And for them nothing at all is out of bounds. This is a struggle for the survival of our nation, believe me. This election will determine whether we are a free nation or whether we have only the illusion of democracy, but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system, and our system is rigged. This is reality. You know it, they know it, I know it and pretty much the whole world knows it.

    The establishment and their media enablers wield control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed! They will attack you, they will slander you, they will seek to destroy your career and your family. They will seek to destroy everything about you including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie and then again they will do worse than that. They will do whatever’s necessary. The Clinton’s are criminals, remember that, they’re criminals.

    Our great civilisation here is America and across the civilised world has come upon a moment of reckoning. We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom where they voted to liberate themselves from global government and global trade deals and global immigration deals that have destroyed their sovereignty and have destroyed many of those nations. But the central base of world political power is right here in America and it is our corrupt political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalisation and the disenfranchisement of working people.
    Their financial resources are virtually unlimited. Their political resources are unlimited. Their media resources are unmatched. And most importantly, the depths of their immorality is absolutely unlimited. “

    • This speech was a watershed moment. The fact that Trump belongs to the same elite class whose sinister machinations he is bringing to light, with seemingly no consideration for the ramifications of doing so, makes me think he’s for real.

  16. Tyranny comes on little cat feet,
    It doesn’t announce itself, it’s very discreet,
    It sits looking over harbor and city,
    There are those who thinks it’s pretty,
    But once ingrained, liberty is gone,
    On silent haunches it sits,~~~then moves on.

    That tyranny does not go quietly into the night, (gnqanq)
    It needs to be dragged out into the daylight,
    When the perpetrators thereof are dutifully slaughtered,
    With their blood the tree of liberty can thus be watered,
    Every generation must repeat this rite.

  17. “The people that party exists to serve.”

    This way of looking at it, does not seem to jive with reality.

    It does jive with their propaganda – but what is that worth?

    This is not a case of Republican servants, the party, doing their job that we hired them for, but poorly. It was never that way. “In order to be the master, the politician poses as the servant.”
    — Charles de Gaulle

    People get into office to satisfy their power lust and to plunder the productive. That’s the reality.

  18. Trump has masterfully engineered a hostile takeover and makeover of the Republican party. The Trump movement is worldwide. Politicians have been put on notice by his movement and by Wikileaks allowing we deplorable’s to view what’s behind the curtain; total corruption and disdain by the elitists for American laws.

    If the election is not rigged I believe Trump will win. However I am seeing information that a major supplier of voting machines has ties to the demon (((Soros))). More than anything this bothers me the most.

    I have spoken to many Trump voters who will NOT be voting for #nevertrump Republicans down the ballot line. Count me in on that. Feel free to share this list of traitors with others.

  19. LawDog: It amazes me that the Republican Party does not understand a Hilary victory will mean the death of the Republican Party.

    As a furriner, my perspective may be flawed, but it seems to me the death of the Republican Party is already assured.

    As a former South African, now in exile, I think I have the correct perspective to predict that a Clinton victory will mean the death of America, which may already be inevitable.

    This warning from South Africa was already several years old when David Duke published it in 2007, but earlier postings have disappeared from the web:

    A Warning to the United States from South Africa By Gemma Meyer

    If you have religious or moral objections to visiting Dr Duke’s site, just search for that title; there are other sources. But read it. You can’t say you weren’t warned. And yes, you may have already left it too late.

    Porter, I second Yojimbo’s comment: The righteous wrath in your writing is to be savored. I wish that your essays were more widely distributed around the web. I love your way with words. So please don’t take it personally when I say that I was dismayed by your third paragraph. A man of your intellect shouldn’t have to resort to profanity. I understand that your subject begs for some strong language, and I wouldn’t object in principle, but that particular niggerism is beneath you.

    (Now watch. in twenty years, when you are running for President, the press will dredge up this blog post, and it will sink you. Not because of what you said, but because I used “thuh enword”)

  20. Donald Trump did not come out of nowhere. To a large extent, he’s just a blatant announcer of Republican policies that have been in place for many years. No more hypocrisy about racism, sexism, and tax cuts that benefit no one but the rich. It’s ironic that a man who can’t move his mouth without lying is actually the one who’s pulling away the curtain to reveal the big truths.

    The lack of good candidates has to do with another issue. In their zeal to thwart Obama, Republicans have given up statesmanship and leadership in favor of partisan maneuvering. There simply WAS no one of any stature that would justify a presidential nomination.
