Today’s Campaign Stack

20 03 2016

* Because Gary Johnson is a proven third-party vote getter.

* True, but one cannot draw November implications from it.  Where she has made her bones with black women during the primary season is the South, and you know those will be red states in the fall.  And while black women have accounted for her margins over Bern in many Democrat primary and caucus states so far, it’s in a universe of black women who aren’t showing up this year in the huge numbers like they did in the 2008 Democrat primary and caucus season for Obama.

* He misses the irony.  Overthrowing democratic republicanism means dark enlightenment, and someone like me as America’s first hereditary monarch.  If Trump is doing anything, it’s giving the Alt-Right once last shot with democratic republicanism.  Overthrow democratic republicanism to spite Trump, and you’ll wind up with Trump to the power of ten.  People talk about Trump being Hitler, but if they play these kinds of games, we’re liable to wind up with someone well closer to Hitler than Trump.

Just as the Tea Party Movement transformed into Trumpism, Trumpism could just as easily transform into a movement that is currently perceived as a fringe cult.

* Start with “My gut tells me..”

* Do not tell me, or them, that they are “privileged.” Yes, it is better to be poor and white than poor and black, and better to be a poor white man than a poor white woman, but people who are in pain do not react well to some smug, upper-middle-class jerk telling them they are privileged when their lives are clearly terrible.

I don’t agree with that at allCeteris paribus, I’d rather be black than white and a white woman than a white man, because in both cases, the white man loses in the affirmative action fight.

* Arizona primaries are this week, and already, there have been more early votes cast by Republican registrants in Maricopa County alone than there were votes in the whole state in the 2012 Republican Primary.

* Marie Antoinette never actually did say, “let ’em eat cake.”  Kevin Williamson more or less has.

And now, open thread.

“Ceteris paribus, I’d rather be black than white and a white woman than a white man, because in both cases, the white man loses in the affirmative action fight.” – No one with a healthy sense of self wants to change who they are, regardless of their circumstances. That said, on the insane fringes far more are abandoning being white and being men than the reverse.

“Marie Antoinette” – she may have been referring to ovencake, dumb, not necessarily evil.

“People talk about Trump being Hitler, but if they play these kinds of games, we’re liable to wind up with someone well closer to Hitler than Trump.”

Calling Trump “Hitler” is indeed silly. Trump isn’t Hitler, he’s Hillary Clinton with a dick and a comb-over.

Although, to be fair, Hillary does much more peddling of racial hatred than Trump does.

Anyway, in an election between Trump and Clinton, it would be silly to take the choice away from the voters – they would not have been offered a real choice in the first place.

Speaking of Marie Antoinette, several months a go I saw the Norma Shearer movie on TCM. At the end, with poor Marie Antoinette riding the tumbrel to the guillotine, I wondered what she had done to deserve it compared to say, Frau Merkel? Or any number of the current Euro-American ruling class?

I hadn’t seen this film in a long time and I was really struck by how much worse the current “Western” rulers are than her and Louis XVI.
