America Today: “Easily Duped and Way Off Course” but Getting There Anyway

Gavin McInnes, the Master, the Scottish-born, ex-Canadian, punk rock maestro, devoutly Catholic family man, the doctor of post-hipster analysis of the American condition, has written an excellent opinion piece in Taki’s Mag about the Trump phenomenon and some of the signs of why it’s a good thing in the crazy, screwed up, cultural hash that America has become.
McInnes’ insight is that you have to look at the “crybaby generation’s” take on things, because they determine the outcome of elections, like it or not. People like the idiots who write for Rolling Stone magazine, for example. “The crybaby generation is driving this boat and they don’t know how to drive. This is what’s so great about Trump. In an era where dupes are easily led, you need a great leader.”

And by “great leader,” McInnes is talking about a leader who doesn’t put up with the whining classes’ bullsh*t. That’s Trump all over. The magic of this is that after years of conservative leaders being too timid to stand up to the spoiled babies on the left, and getting nowhere, Trump is exactly the “strong daddy figure” that the millenials and assorted lefties really want, even if they won’t admit it. Read the article, and you’ll see examples of how the hip, young pundits are writing about Trump with the thinly-disguised admiration of trust-fund brats who are finally ready to go to work for Daddy’s business. McInnes explains this in the politically-incoherent way that only he can:

The Democrats, the mainstream media, neocons, liberals, and college kids are all part of the same hive. They want to fight but they don’t want to win. They’re like that crazy Latina girlfriend in a screaming panic who won’t shut up until you grab her by the wrists and say, “Shut the f*&k up. I got this.” We need to throw her onto the couch, grab a beer, and get back to work. That’s ultimately what she wants too. She just doesn’t realize it yet.

And the best part? “I still believe Trump is a snowplow who is paving the way for Ted Cruz. At the last second, he endorses Cruz and we get all the bravado of the former with the brains of the latter.” I concur. Fingers crossed. Cross-Posted and Bowdlerized from Blog of Monte Cristo.

  1. Ooh Ooh Ooh! Upvotes on the McInnes shout-out, I’ve been a big fan of his contributions on Taki’s for several years. He and Jim Goad are a coupla witty sumzabitches awright, reminiscent of Hunter S. Thompson.

    And Taki’s is my frequent hang for their much maligned and misunderstood White Nationalism. It’s okay to embrace one’s Asian Pride, or Black Pride, or Hispanic Pride, but woe to the hapless fool who deigns to carry any White Pride. After all, our European heritage only gave us Beethoven and Shakespeare and Isaac Newton. What’s so special about that…?

    White Nationalism isn’t the same as White Supremacy, but liberal propaganda and redefinitions have conflated the two in our Pop Culture mind. At some point I realized I was being played, started accepting the fundamental genetic and physiological differences between ethnicities, and stopped apologizing for my existence.

    As I understand it — and I could be wrong — a cuckservative is anyone who isn’t a White Nationalist, and vice versa. You either believe white people have a right to protect and preserve their history and culture, or you don’t. Ace, for example, bans this sort of discussion as racist.

    It’s so hard to surmount 20, 30, 40 years of liberal brainwashing. You feel like a renegade, and you know you ain’t gettin’ invited to the Polite People’s cocktail parties anymore. Just ask James Watson of Watson-Crick fame … he DISCOVERED the double-helix DNA, fer Chrissakes, and is now a pariah shunned by the scientific community for whispering the truth.

    Anyway. McInnes is playing for our side on this issue, and I pray he kicks the door open a few more inches for whomever’s bold enough to bounce on in. Big fan.


    • Absolutely! I love Kathy Shaidle over there, too. I don’t know completely where I stand on the White Nationalism, but I’m generally supportive of White Pride along with Black Pride and Diabetic Mixed-Race Armenian Midget Pride and everything else. The clowns who think that Whites need to be shamed and marginalized in order to make up for imagined past wrongs are full of it, as far as I’m concerned. I can see why some sites are leery of the topic, though. There are some wingnuts out there that you run into.
