Making the cuckservatives weep

The last few weeks have been very good indeed for those of us of a conservative cast of mind, who are sick and tired and fed to the back teeth with seeing so-called "Republicans" betray conservative principles for political gain.

The Twatter hashtag "#cuckservative" appears to be severely pissing off the "establishment right". They either seek to ignore it completely, as National Review is desperately trying to do- try searching for "cuckservative" over there and you'll come up with a big fat bagel (even now, two weeks after I first started writing this post)- or are incandescent in their rage and indignation at the use of the term, as Erick Erickson and various others have been.

Personally, I think it's about damn time that the gloves came off, and that real conservatives stopped playing nice with their less principled colleagues.

And now we see that Donald Trump is tearing past ALL of his "serious" rivals, most of whom are drawn directly from the failed and tired GOP establishment. He is doing so because, unlike all of those prime candidates for spinal fusion surgery (Rand Paul is the sole notable exception to this), he speaks his mind and never backs down from a fight.

Donald Trump is loud, brash, irritating, silly, over-the-top, sometimes incoherent, often self-contradictory. He is also utterly confident in himself. He makes absolutely no apologies for being richer than Croesus. He has a gorgeous wife. He has a history of banging very hot women. He handles every media attempt to take him down and make him look silly with every bit of the savvy and skill that you would expect from a man who knows what it is to stand in the spotlight.

None of this is to say that he would make a good President. Personally, I think he would be a pretty terrible President- there is more to leadership than just self-promotion, after all.

But, compared to the current jug-eared Delta catastrof**k occupying the White House, could he really be that bad? After all, Donald Trump has managed his own business empire and has powered his way back from bankruptcy at least once before. Compared to that, what, exactly, did President Jackass have to show in terms of skills and experience before he became the country's first and- please God!- last affirmative action occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

In a similar vein, I do not have any reason to think that Mr. Trump is any kind of conservative. As Ann Barnhardt has extensively documented, Donald Trump is about as principled as you can expect a man with that combover to be:
1) “I probably identify more as Democrat.” 
2) “I’ve been around for a long time. And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.” 
3) “Nancy — you’re the best. Congrats. [signature]”

—Handwritten note to Speaker Nancy Pelosi 
4) “Bush is probably the worst president in the history of the United States.” 
5) “I’m totally pro-choice.” 
6) “I want to see the abortion issue removed from politics. I believe it is a personal decision that should be left to the women and their doctors.” 
7) “I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care.” 
8) “The Canadian plan also helps Canadians live longer and healthier than Americans… We need, as a nation, to reexamine the single-payer plan.” 
9) “By imposing a one-time 14.25 percent net-worth tax on the richest individuals and trusts, we can put America on sound financial footing for the next century.”
Obviously, no libertarian or true conservative in his right mind would recognise this fake-tanned, immaculately coiffed, extremely gifted self-promoter as one of his people. He is nothing of the sort. He has next to no political principles. He is basically 95% apple, 5% core.

So why, then, do I like what I'm seeing and hearing from The Donald?

Simple. I am sick to the point of delirium of seeing "moderates" being hyped up as realistic and worthy candidates for the White House, only to see them flounder and flail whenever the mainstream media, which is incorrigibly hostile to the founding values of this country, ambush them with hostile questions about "women's rights" and "race relations" and "social services".

It bears remembering that accommodation with evil never works. As Barry Goldwater once said,
Extremism in the defence of liberty is no vice, and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
Mr. Trump's emergence as the extreme, brash, ultra-Alpha frontrunner within a pack of milquetoast Republican candidates is happening at a rather apt and apposite time. Liberty has never been so imperiled as it is now in this country.

And it's only going to get worse.

The reality that faces America is extremely bleak. Demographics is, after all, destiny, and the seismic demographic shifts that this country has undergone over the last thirty years have guaranteed its eventual breakup. The destruction of America's magnificent republican system of government, the abandonment of the uniquely American revolution of personal liberty, are now foregone conclusions.

This has happened because, for the last thirty years and more, the United States government, under the leadership of the Democrat and Republican wings of the One Party of Big Government, has assiduously worked to systematically dismantle America's freedoms by importing millions of people from foreign nations that are anywhere from indifferent to deeply hostile to American values. It has done so under the utterly idiotic and unrealistic notion that, simply through the act of landing up on American soil, people from Mexico and Guatemala and Honduras and Somalia will suddenly become Americans.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that becoming American takes decades to accomplish. It requires an abandonment of all of the parochial and feeble attitudes that have crippled the peoples of so many of the countries whose people keep landing up here. For Hispanics, who are rapidly becoming the single biggest racial bloc in the USA, this means abandoning centuries of "Big Man" thinking, whereby nothing ever happens in Latin America unless there is a charismatic leader who orders everyone else around to get it done.

And let us not forget that, nine times out of every ten, those "Big Man" leaders take their countries and their people straight over the cliff edge and into the abyss.

This belief in "Big Man" leadership is, or was, utter anathema to the American way of thinking, which used to stress rugged individualism, self-reliance, and faith in a God who intended for Mankind to be free.

In defiance of this once-proud and strident creed, Republicans have for the last thirty years continued to elect "moderates" who refuse to answer hard questions about immigration, welfare, abortion, women's "rights", gay "rights", and scores of other cultural issues. They have attempted to get along to go along. The result has been ever bigger government, ever greater government intrusions into the freedoms that their forefathers paid for in blood, and a terrible dimming of the beacon that once provided the light and hope of the entire free world.

There was a time when, if men wanted to know what it means to be free, all we had to do was to look at America. There, we would see a God-blessed land built by an industrious, optimistic, cheerful people full of grace and decency.

That is the American that I have had the honour to meet and see and experience firsthand. That is the America that I love. That is the America that had, and has, the grace and kindness and decency to let me come here to live and work as a guest, subject to her laws and on the condition that I become a productive member of her society, and which has let me live here for nearly 9 years in peace and comfort from the fruits of my own exertions.

That is what I would see restored, or at least preserved, so that I never have to explain to my children what it means to be free; all I have to do is point to America.

The idea that was America struggles to survive in today's stultifying, politically correct environment. It quietly soldiers through the long winter brought on by political idiocy, out in the farms and meadows of New England, and the desert plains of Arizona, in rural California and Oregon and Montana, in the swamps of Georgia and Alabama and Florida. It still exists proudly and clearly in the great state of Texas, despite the best attempts by our Benevolent Government Overlords to chase it out.

All of which brings us back to just why it is that Mr. Trump is running away with the field here.

Donald Trump is succeeding because he, alone among all of the candidates, speaks for those people. He speaks for the Americans who see and do not appreciate what was happened to their country. He speaks for those people who understand that national sovereignty is worth fighting for. He speaks for the people who are sick and tired of seeing what was once the greatest, most virile, most productive culture in the world reduced to a level of cheapness and slovenliness that would repulse a three-dollar hooker.

He offers up a vision, however fleeting and flawed and problematic, of an America once again made strong, secure, and free, where good men and women can live their lives in pursuit of their own ends, and where freedom is understood for what it is: self-discipline in place of discipline imposed from without.

This is what the cuckservatives fail to understand. They fail to see the tremendous power of such a vision. They seek to supplant it with "moderation", with "accommodation"- with surrender. And that is why they will continue to fail to meet Mr. Trump's challenge.

Will Mr. Trump become President? I have no real idea. I have my doubts. But I'll tell you one thing: I would pay good money to watch him tear apart Hillary Clinton in a debate. Mrs. Cankles-in-a-Pantsuit would have absolutely no idea what hit her. It would be like watching a pitbull tear into a bloody-rare T-bone steak.

And he, alone, would be able to put an end to this godawful trend of political dynasticism that has blighted American politics:

What red-blooded man wouldn't want to see that?
