Following the fierce debate around Donald Trump s campaign I couldn't help but notice how there is a huge front forming against him in the last 10 days. The GOP leadership takes almost a suicidal stance admitting next presidential s to be a loss-openly or with hints they admit they re going full Hillary if Trump is Republican s nominee . People with left ideas in the US took their stance long ago-"if Trump doesn't let immigrants in I m going out "(why were they saying they ll move to Canada when it is the least likely country from where immigrants will arrive is a mystery to me). What seems to unite those unlikely allies is their fear of the growing alt-right movement and the fact that it has openly embraced Trump s candidacy. It seems to be the focal point of their criticism, often moving some of the qualifications from his electorate to mr. Trump himself. To me it seems that Trump has seen the growing popularity of that movement and tried to emulate it s appeal.
That movement while it maybe never had a defined leadership publishing some manifesto is still majorly anti-Semitic which in the past has always been a sure-fire way for a grassroots movement to fail. What was the difference, did people become more racist and xenophobic than before? Nope, they just didn't see the medium that usually governments and centrists and apolitical people were-somehow, somewhere in the 90 s it was gone.Most trends that wave around the World come from the USA, the radicalization of the Left made no exception and the new and shocking scent that Americans added to it was the racial tone. What it resulted in was a series of loony statements that we hear from most popular media outlets, left political movements leaders and that well of never-ending wisdom-Tumbler. If you are white going online will soon teach you that you are a bad person due to your genes. What is even worse is you don't have culture and well-you don't belong to any race since there is no such thing as white race. But in the same time you are still white and still guilty of enslaving black people in the US. The fact that you re say from Poland and have never seen a black person doesn't absolve you of blame.Normal people(non-tumblerits if i may call them) grow up with some firm and pretty solidly based beliefs of what is right and what is wrong tho. We know for example that what bunch of jews figured 3 thousand years ago holds true till today-a child is being born clear and we can not hold it accountable for the sins of it's parents. We know that hating people from other ethnicity is called racism.And we know that people calling a black spot pink should be locked in a safe space instead of writing for leading media outlets. So when a normal person, that silent majority of a-political people is being confronted with such propaganda they certainly begin to worry. Will it end at Tumbler?-they ask themselves.Next year the answer is obvious-tumblerism floods big media outlets, some of it's speak sneaks into serious political leader's speeches. You know-those mediums of power you always expect to take reasonable, very intelligent and maybe sometimes overly centrist position of balance, well those mediums remain silent instead of criticizing obvious cases of radicalization while some of them even take sides with the radicals. So let's imagine that hypothetical middle-class white man working too hard to have time to check how modern e-politics were unfolding. He decides to drop by and check what is going on and what he finds is that he either has to "admit his white guilt" "admit his privilege" and :"smash capitalism" or he can go in the camp of-"blacks have on average 10 pts lower IQ" lolol and claim that all his problems come from a mysterious order of jews that pulls every string of World's politics.
So all that heat our imaginary folk gets for simply being the wrong skin colour can easily push him in the other camp-after all the enemy of my foe is my friend, right? Option B is he is being left stupefied , asking himself questions like-"how dumb am I if after all that privilege pouring on me I m still poor/middle class?" or "if all white people are racist, how and why should I try to change it?". Where did I lead you with this? We have now a popular figure, a figure with chances of becoming the head of the biggest country in the World who simply doesn't care.While he doesn't take a direct anti-PC stance nor did he ever drop an inflammatory, openly racist statement he clearly has become the leader of everyone that opposes left radicalism in the US. His first strongly stated point was against illegal immigration after which he continued by bashing radical islamism, both sacred cows for the same "white guilt" and " white privilege" folks. By doing so he gave hope to our imaginary ordinary person from the example above that there might be a chance the good times when racism was bad, no matter what the circumstances behind it are are going to be back. What many people tend to forget is that when he speaks of immigration key word is ILLEGAL. For me and everyone that has outgrown primitive left-right views and bias on politics a politician that does not oppose illegal immigration is highly controversial. I mean....illegal, does that ring a bell in you? But for Trump's outraged opponents taking stance against such immigration is somehow controversial or what most of them put it-fascist and racist(pretty sure people of all races try to immigrate to USA for economical reasons). So this is how Trump found his surprising for many popularity-he proved to be the medium, the bridge that eases the ugly racial tensions that the cancer which Tumbler is managed to wake. Alt-right people endorsing him is not the core of his popularity, these people are just the fringe of it. What people seeking to " destroy" Trump and his followers tend to forget or ignore is that "destroying" him won't magically delete the millions that showed with their vote how they feel and what they support. It will instead leave them without a popular figure offering them a middle way. And let's see what is left, who wins those elections in that case:
