“This may well be the beginning of the end”

“This may well be the beginning of the end”.  That’s the opening statement from Charles Blow at the New York Times in a November 21st Op-Ed.  The title of the article is “Trump: Making America White Again”.  Blow’s argument centers on Trump’s cabinet picks and how that makes America patriarchal, white, racist, and misogynistic.

Of course, Blow’s timing wasn’t great.  Since labeling Trump a racist misogynist, Trump has picked three women for his cabinet including Elaine Chao, an Asian American immigrant.

Blow’s charges of racism, sexism, and so on are standard Liberal fare.  To be sure, Trump and Bannon have had many issues with saying blatantly sexist stuff, and Trump may have even done some things that were almost as bad as what Democrat favorite Bill Clinton did back in the day.  But as far as Trump’s “orange glow” being the sun setting on America, not quite.

Even Blow’s evidence for AG pick Jeff Session’s apparent blatant racism comes from dubious sources.  Blow cites the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a radical Leftist group that labels all things Conservative as racist, bigoted and homophobic, yet is still considered a valid source by Liberals.  What is even funnier is SPLC’s actual statement, which considers Sessions to be a racist because he opposes illegal immigration.

SPLC considers opposition to illegal immigration and sanctuary cities to be akin to white supremacy and eugenics.  Of course, that’s rich coming from a party that is pro-abortion. Abortion rates among minority groups occur at alarmingly high rates.

Trump is not creating the white male utopia that Blow fears.  If anything, Trump is focusing on middle class workers who are a large percentage white.  They’ve been ignored for a while, which created one of the demographic shifts in this election.  The other major demographic shift was that Hillary Clinton received the lowest share of the black vote in 20 years.

Every year some whacko group predicts the end of the world.  A few years ago it was the end because the Mayan calendar had run out.   Harold Camping predicted the end of the world 12 times.  This year, it’s the New York Times.

A Vietnamese American, a Jew, and a Nazi…

They just don’t make white supremacists like they used to.

The nation was riled this week to see the alt-right so emboldened by Donald Trump’s victory that people at white supremacist conferences were doing the unthinkable.  They were doing Nazi salutes.  At a white supremacist conference, if you can believe that. Thousands were gathering…I’m sorry, I meant hundreds were gathering…no, that’s still wrong.  150 gathered for an annual neo-Nazi conference, with another 150 outside protesting.  At the conference, the media got a snapshot of the sordid details of what goes on inside when one of the more famous members took a selfie of their salute and posted it on Twitter.

That was all the media needed to start the 24 hour clock on the new narrative.  Donald Trump’s election had created the new neo-Nazi movement.  You would think this event must have had a million people, because when tens of thousands of pro-lifers gather in DC every year the media is no where to be found.  But no.  150.

So why all the buzz?  Aside from the media narrative, who would even notice three neo-Nazis saluting Hitler?  That’s the odd thing.  The picture was tweeted by adult model and reality television star Tila Tequila.

Tila Tequila, born Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, is a bi-sexual Vietnamese American who emigrated to the United States after the Vietnam war.  In addition to posing nude for several magazines, having sex tapes, and a VH1 reality show, Nguyen has (or had, I should say) a very active alt-right Twitter account supporting Trump.  Of course, her presence makes this white supremacist outing slightly more diverse than the last meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus.

But she wasn’t the odd one in that photo.  To complicate matters even more, Salon.com reports that the man standing on her right is Jewish.  Saluting Hitler??

Apparently, he was there to investigate the movement and the picture was meant as a joke.  I’m sure he wasn’t anticipating how much the media was starved for evidence that the Nazis were taking over the country because Trump was elected.  And actually, it was a pretty good joke.  In addition to riling the media up, it has riled the neo-Nazi whackos who cannot believe a Jew got in their clubhouse (language alert).

I’m not saying we shouldn’t be concerned about white supremacist groups.  But maybe we can rest a little easier knowing that 150 of them (or I guess 148 plus a Vietnamese pornstar and a Jewish prankster) are not quite the Trump led neo-Nazi revolution the media has been reporting.  They haven’t even quite figured out the “white European” part.
