A Trump win for the Presidency would be one of the most powerful global signals to re-state white racial superiority that the world has seen in many decades.

Let’s start with the kind of political party a Trump election would encourage in the United States. The Republican party will choose between a victory that empowers the most racist factions of America, or a loss that diminishes them.

The one thing the many alt-right commentators agree on is that we need to organize society on the assumption that white people are genetically superior, and white culture is inherently superior, and whites need this superiority protected by the state-imposed and enforced separation of peoples. This is the side Trump leads. We know how much he leads this because his campaign is chaired by the main organizer of the voice of the alt-right, which is breitbart.com. Check it out if you dare and you will see what I mean. As they shouted to him at his campaign launch: “Build That Wall!”

Breitbart.com courts the alt-right audience. They are integrated into the Trump campaign. What used to be toxic to the mainstream, will become the de facto voice of the White House and President of the United States.

It will also shift the positional power of the alt-right within Congress and the Senate. If Trump wins and leads, Paul Ryan has to accept it. Mitch McConnell has to accept it. Reince Preibus as head of the Republican Party membership and organisation has to accept it. So far they have. Republican pro-white policies will be pushed by the White House in Congress, Senate, and Party membership. To imagine that kind of society in operation, we have to go back to prior to LBJ’s civil rights reforms for open Republican acceptance and encouragement of pro-white policy and social force.

This global signal is worth railing against on the left, internationally. As the Human Rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said yesterday, the formula across the world goes like this: “Make people, already nervous, feel terrible, and then emphasise it’s all because of a group, lying within, foreign and menacing. Then make your target audience feel good by offering what is a fantasy to them, but a horrendous injustice to others. Inflame and quench, many times over, until anxiety has been hardened into hatred.”

He said this was a pattern in current political leadership including Dutch politician Geert Wilders (currently leading in the polls), the US candidate Mr Trump, and other leaders including Mr Orban, Mr Zeman, Mr Hofer, Mr Fico, Madame Le Pen, and Mr Farage. And they are identical techniques to ISIS.

He said: “All seek in varying forms to recover a past, halcyon and pure in form, where sunlit fields are settled by people united by ethnicity or religion – living peacefully in isolation, pilots of their fate, free of crime, foreign influence and war. A past that most certainly, in reality, did not exist anywhere, ever.”

And naturally, he turned those techniques into questions: “Are we going to stand by and watch this banalization of bigotry, until it reaches its logical conclusion?” Mr Ra’a Al Hussein asked. “Ultimately, it is the law that will safeguard our societies – human rights law, binding law which is the distillation of human experience, of generations of human suffering, the screams of the victims of past crimes and hate.”

Before we cloak ourselves in national virtue, remember that we came within a whisker of the Orewa speech becoming our government too. We all have a part to play in defying this rising racist tide, here and across the world.

If you’d like to have a look at Mr Al Hussein’s speech, merely as an antidote to the hate from Trump and the rest, here you go.

    Yep, we’re definitely not far enough away to be safe from the splatter if the orange turd tornado touches down in the White House.

      i just gave a lift to one of your countrymen , young ,educated and confident that clinton would win (his words were that trump was the best thing to happen to the democrats), the last young yank i talked to pre an election was just before bush jnr got elected and his prediction was spot on , so there is a bit of hope for you.

        If the tangerine bad acid trip actually goes all the way, I expect you to show some sensitivity to the fact that my US citizenship wasn’t a voluntary choice of mine, OK?

    I recall either the trevor noah or john oliver was talking about trump and the rise of racism, and had a wonderful clip of a supporter about to say something about immigrants, then looked around and does a double-take when he realises that he was “allowed” to say things like that because everyone around agreed with him.

    Can’t find it – only about ten seconds long, but quite funny/scary as it dawns on him that his opinion is suddenly free from criticism.

    Global corporations and institutions are ‘racist’ with or without a Republican ‘victory’. They are also extensively anti humanist within the frameworks of operation

    Small wonder people don’t or can’t see it when they are being played like a fiddle

    There are ‘too many’ working parts, so most analysis will focus on a piece at a time while entirely missing the , not so slight of hand

    It’s humanity the controllers despise….the cattle that are not part of ‘the clique’

    Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009.

    Since coming to office in 2009, Obama’s government has deported more than 2.5 million people—up 23% from the George W. Bush years. Increasingly women and children from south American countries.

    Then there are the Policies brought in under Mr and Mrs Clintons time as President and secretary of state, many of which had a devastating effect on Black communities.

    All of these policies could be classed as a War on the Poor, but they are also firmly planted and allowed to flourish in a ground of racism.

    Trump is a dangerous clown.
    Obama and the Clintons are equally dangerous, just in an insidious way.. Their policies are arguably racist, and the effect of driving Black Africans into a downward spiral economically encourages racism in the white population.

    We fear the orange turd for sure, but Clinton is gaining alot of support from the Republican War Hawks and the Free Trade crowd…everyone knows.. if Clinton does get in she has alot of crap to spread our way and all around the World.

    • Colonial Viper 4.1

      Also note that the so-called “all volunteer” US military is little more than a ‘poverty draft’ at the level of enlisted troops (Blacks are under-represented in the officer corps). And it is within these enlisted ranks that Blacks serve and die in disproportionate numbers furthering the interests of predominantly white owned big corporate interests.

  5. the lone harnguer 5

    Trump is a nationalist and Clinton is an internationalist.

    I suspect that America has way more to fear from another Clinton presidency, that it will ever have with a Trump presidency.

    But if you want to base your whole vote on who is more/less racist, then ideally you wanted Bernie in the last two, but Clinton’s DNC girl ran diversion on that one.

  6. Colonial Viper 6

    Just a reminder that Bill Clinton passed laws criminalising many minor drug and other offences, turning them into imprisonable felonies.

    The result over the years has been many millions of additional African Americans (the “super predators” that Hillary Clinton talked about at the time) spending time in prison, permanently disenfranchised, profiting the white owned white run private prison industry to the tune of billions of dollars.

    That’s the new Jim Crow introduced by the Clinton Administration.

    • Andre 6.1

      Hillary is not Bill.

      A bit of context around her “superpredator” speech. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/aug/28/reince-priebus/did-hillary-clinton-call-african-american-youth-su/

      There’s a little bit of evidence that Hillary may have learned from that mistake and evolved her views. Maybe. http://time.com/4238230/hillary-clinton-black-lives-matter-superpredator/

      Meanwhile, Trump has yet to show any sign of regret or even an acknowledgement he may have been wrong in cases like the Central Park 5. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/feb/17/central-park-five-donald-trump-jogger-rape-case-new-york

      • Colonial Viper 6.1.1

        Hillary is not Bill.

        Just making sure that people know what the ruling heritage of the Clintons is, and why Black Americans should think twice about supporting the Democratic Party, home of the new Jim Crow.

        And here is Hillary Clinton cheering and laughing at the mob murder of Gadaffi, and her turning a wealthy African nation, Libya, into an Islamist failed state and refugee nation.

        • McFlock 6.1.1.1

          Yeah. nah. Again with your lies.

          • Colonial Viper 6.1.1.1.1

            Everyone is welcome to watch Hillary grin and laugh and giggle at Gadaffi’s death on that youtube clip. The destruction of Libya was her pet neocon project.

            From Haiti to Syria, the Democratic candidate’s long record suggests that she is looking forward to being a war president on day one

            • McFlock 6.1.1.1.1.1

              Shorter clip than last time.
              All she was celebrating was an unconfirmed report he’d been killed. Distasteful, but understandable given that it was the best chance of ending the civil war at that time. She sure as shit wasn’t celebrating “turning a wealthy African nation, Libya, into an Islamist failed state and refugee nation”. As Assad demonstrates, the death of the dictator is not necessary to sustain a long civil war.

              • Colonial Viper

                Distasteful, but understandable given that it was the best chance of ending the civil war at that time.

                By the way, how did Clinton’s humanitarian regime change programme (which she still defends to the hilt today) turn out for the people of Libya?

                Do newly married couples still receive a $20,000 bonus from the government to begin their new lives with? Are schools and hospitals free like under the Gaddafi government? Do women professors still teach at all the universities in Libya?

                • McFlock

                  Nope. But he’s not torturing people, either.

                  But please, tell me more about how the ends for some justify the means…

                  • Colonial Viper

                    you fool, you’re the one making Clinton’s rationale for ‘humanitarian regime change’ and how the ends justifies the means.

                    • McFlock

                      I said it was understandable. Not good or justified. As far as she was concerned, he was an enemy of her country and an obstacle for geopolitical stability (decades of sheltering and sanctioning terrorists will give you that reputation).

                      Also, US strategists have a fixation on “cutting the head off the snake”, as it were. It’s not really applicable most of the time, particularly in assymetric warfare, but it’s their paradigm. So Clinton was probably regarding Ghadaffi as an obstacle to the ultimate resolution of the civil war. Not correctly as it turned out, but she didn’t know that at the time. Hence her reaction is understandable.

                      The things you claim she cheered, she either didn’t know about or they didn’t even exist at the time. That’s why you’re a liar and/or a fantasist.

              • Garibaldi

                Do your homework Mc Flock. Go and find out why the West destroyed Libya ( and dig deeper than Fox news ! ). Maybe then you will see how correct CV is.

                • Colonial Viper

                  The west destroys modern secular states all around MENA and then wonders why it has an out of control Islamist failed state problem.

                  You’d almost think that this repetitive creation of chaos and destruction of public governing structures in these far away regions was *deliberate* strategy.

                  • McFlock

                    …. or you’d simply assume that they have no fucking idea how to deal with the first wave of climate-related food wars.

                    • One Two

                      McFlock are you as foolish as your comments indicate, or is it that you simply can’t help yourself from acting like dickhead?

                      You see, by continually jumping to the defense of Clinton(s) and anything that is posted about them or the foundation, you have actively taken sides and are emotionally invested in the outcome

                      This is low frequency behaviour and is the same that yourself and others accuse CV of with his having hitched his wagon to Trumps cart…

                      Let’s level set the situation

                      The Clintons and therefore the foundation are rotten to the the very core, and Trump (who has been enabled by the same backers) is essentially running interference is also rotten

                      All of them are controlled because they are unimaginably bent with skeletons which commenters here such as yourself, simply do not seem to accept

                      ‘The contestants’ are the symptom of the cess pool that American politics has been for many decades and the world has been living with the outcomes of the electorates ignorance not to mention the apparant stupidy of the ‘average american’

                      The American people and the global citizenry are directly responsible for their administrations behavior

                      Perhaps see if you can emotionally back out

                    • One Anonymous Bloke

                      One Two, I note that you tell me no-one knows what’s going on, then blither with brittle certainty about Trump and the Clintons.

                      What a clown.

                    • McFlock

                      Onetwo, you asked so I’ll answer.

                      For someone who loves to talk about operating on higher frequencies, you start off with it arse about face: I’m not emotionally invested in the outcome because I comment, I comment because I’m emotionally invested in the outcome. We all are. Whether it’s the existential investment of having one of the world’s largest nuclear arsenals in the control of someone who has shown not the slightest indication of empathy or intelligence, or the basic, day to day investment of being part of a community that has accepted refugees, we are all invested.

                      If the Clintons were as bad as you say, rotten to the very core, then CV wouldn’t have to rely on invention and handwaving about mysterious connections. It would be as plain as Trump donating from his personal account (or trump foundation account by accident) to the election campaign of someone who refuses official advice and fails to pursue charges against him, all of it openly documented.

                      Arguing an equivalence between Trump and Clinton is dishonest, because it can only be demonstrated via dishonest means such as exagerrating what she was happy about and then sliding into other lies when the first lie is challenged.

                      As you say, we are all responsible for the american administration’s behaviour. I can’t vote, but if there is an afterlife and at judgement I am asked “what did you do to prevent the election of a narcissistic demagogue who created databases of citizens based on religion and formented racism before starting WW3 because he didn’t know the relative geopolitical impacts between a 2,000lb bomb and a 30kt nuke?”, I’d like to be able to say something more than “I didn’t even try, because I operate at a higher frequency, you see”.

                • McFlock

                  lol

                  I don’t need to do any more “homework”. If she was celebrating “turning a wealthy African nation, Libya, into an Islamist failed state and refugee nation” CV’s little bullshit clip wouldn’t have had the interviewer’s comment cut short. All we have is a reaction, but to what? Simply unconfirmed reports that a dictator who’d tried to supress food riots to the point of revolution was dead. Not how, and certainly not a prediction of years of ongoing conflict.

                  Do your own fucking “homework” rather than swallowing CV’s hysteria. He lost the plot ages ago. Are you a true revolutionary, or merely a biscuit?

                  • Colonial Viper

                    And now, both MENA and Europe are paying for Clinton’s bad judgement and lack of foresight, as both Islamic terrorists and innocent refugees flood out of Libya into the entire region.

                    And specifically, they are paying the price for Clinton’s well proven allegiance to war profiteering neocons.

                    • McFlock

                      “MENA”.
                      awww, that’s weet, you’ve got a new acronym that you can use to pretend that you know what you’re talking about, rather than just parroting whatever nutbar propaganda site you agree with today.

                    • Colonial Viper

                      Pepe Escobar back in 2011 correctly mocked the inhumane “Right to Protect” war rationale assumed by the west, the US and NATO.

                      As for how R2P (“responsibility to protect” civilians), any doubters should cling to the explanation by NATO’s secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen; “NATO and our partners have successfully implemented the historic mandate of the United Nations to protect the people of Libya.” Anyone who wants to check NATO’s protection of civilians just needs to jump on a pick-up truck and go to Sirte – the new Fallujah…

                      United States President Barack Obama said the death of Gaddafi means “we are seeing the strength of American leadership across the world”. That’s as “we got him” as one can possibly expect, also considering that Washington paid no less than 80% of the operating costs of those dimwits at NATO (over $1 billion – which Occupy Wall Street could well denounce would be more helpful creating jobs in the US). Strange, now, to say “we did it”, because the White House always said this was not a war; it was a “kinetic” something. And they were not in charge.

                      It was up to that majestic foreign policy strategist, US Vice President Joe Biden, to be starkly more enlightening than Obama; “In this case, America spent $2 billion and didn’t lose a single life. This is more the prescription for how to deal with the world as we go forward than it has in the past.”
