Time mag tries to explain white nationalism

Time magazine has a big article on How Donald Trump's campaign brought white nationalists out of the shadows. It is filled with terms like "extremist", "far right", "supremacist", "racist", and "bigot" at every opportunity.

The curious thing is what it does not say. It does not accuse Trump of any of those things, and it does not give examples of any of his supporters expressing any of those extremist or hateful views. It is just name-calling.

So why would white nationalists be excited about Trump if he is not one of them?

The defining issue of this political year is globalism versus nationalism. The establishment Democrats and Republicans stand for destroying the American middle class by equalizing it with Third World workers, for waging perpetual overseas wars, and for keeping us in debt. That is profitable for the wealthy elites and political donors.

Trump and Sanders reject this. Trump, in particular, wants to make America great again. The white nationalists just think that it is obvious that we are going to need white people to make America great.

The internationalist business and financial interests are much more interested in global development, because that increases the supply of people who can be put into debt buying their products, and then controlled for the benefit of the wealthy elites.

Trump's big accomplishment is to put forward the idea that an American President should put America first, and advance the interests of American. And for that, he is hated by the leftists and the cucks.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Sure, it makes sense on the surface but, consider that leading economists predict that if we were to get rid of the Mexican workforce in Calif., prices for goods and services in Calif. would rise about 30%. And if we were to apply stiff tariffs on China, Viet Nam etc. middle and lower class Walmart shoppers would experience a huge spike in prices. Wages may be stagnant for working class Americans now, but if you raise prices so dramatically on goods and services, in the end, they'll be far worse off.

Make American education free or much cheaper and we can have the best of both worlds over time. Educated and better trained workers with higher paying jobs along with lower cost consumer goods and services. Doesn't that make good sense ?

I do not believe these scare stories about how the USA is already hopelessly dependent on foreign labor.

Nobody is proposing dramatic increases to stiff tariffs. Trump only demands that these trade deals be better for Americans.

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump told The New York Times he would support the US' putting a massive 45% tariff on Chinese exports to the US.

What do you mean nobody is propsing dramatic increases to stiff tariffs ? Trump is.

Then of course, Trump denied it, so the N.Y. Times produced the audio tape. Can you really trust whatever Trump says and what he might do if elected ?

I listened to the recording, and you have misrepresented it. Trump says that he is a free trader, but would use a tariff to correct for a currency exchange imbalance.

Ok, maybe. I didn't listen to his actual words and that does matter a lot.
