Impeaching Trump, for the Second Time, is an Even Stupider Idea

January 17, 2021 18 comments

In my previous post, I listed the major reasons why banning Trump from Twitter (and other american-owned social media platforms) was an incredibly stupid and short-sighted idea. In this one, I will go into the many reasons why trying to impeach Trump for the second time is an even stupider idea. Having said that.. I am not surprised that the delusional losers aka democrats would come up with such a brain fart. Just look at what they have been doing for the past thirty years, but especially the past five. Anyway, here are the reasons..

1] Trump received over 74 million votes in 2020 (8 million more than 2016) in spite of a huge and sustained propaganda effort by MSM over past four years which included making up many dozens of nonexistent “scandals” in addition to his highly incompetent managing of response to COVID-19 pandemic. Even after he “officially” lost the election, Trump had no problems getting tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters to attend his rallies. Anyone who believes that this guy does not have a massive base or that his supporters will desert him in aftermath of that over-hyped January 6 riot in DC is highly delusional aka a democrat.

As I also mentioned in my previous post, it is worth noting that Trump has a far larger base of support among people who work in (or have worked in) the armed services, police and other paramilitary services. If you think that trying to impeach him a second time won’t further piss off and rile up those sorts of people, I have a bridge to sell you. When (not if) push comes to shove, I would bet on the trained guys with guns prevailing over lanyard wearing pencil-dick aspie dweebs from Northern California. Banning him from american-owned social media outlets has only helped Trump further by making him look like a martyr. Don’t be surprised if parts of this post seem similar to the previous one, because the stuff they are talking about are being driven by very similar underlying factors.

It does not help that democratic party and its associated public personalities such as MSM presstitutes, incompetent but credentialed “experts” etc have vociferously supported useless ‘lockdowns’ and school closures which have ruined the lives of many millions of younger people. Does anybody thinks that this will somehow increase the vote-share of democrats in 2022 and 2024 elections? Far more likely, democrats are going to get wiped out in 2022 elections to levels that are unthinkable to most people right now. Trying to impeach Trump, a second time, is only going to make him more popular than he is right now. And the guy who comes after Orange Man is going to be far more competent and systematic than him.

2] Trying to impeach Trump, for a second time, shows how incompetent, desperate and scared the democratic party has become. It is no secret that attempts at presidential impeachment have lost their power due to their frequent use in recent decades. Remember when they tried to impeach Clinton in late 1990s.. how did that turn out? Did it crimp his ability to make money or hurt his popularity after leaving office in early-2001? And did the first attempt to impeach Trump hurt his ability to get the republican nomination or receive a record number of votes in 2020 elections? Why would any sane person think that a second attempt at impeachment would achieve more? And it is not different this time around..

The socio-economic conditions which caused the rise of Trump have become more dominant in past four years. Trump was, if anything, a trailer for the sort of person who is going to rise to power in the next few years. If you think that more ineffectual impeachments and attempts to harass Trump by starting bogus investigations via the NY state attorney’s office is going to stop a future american Caesar, you are probably a democrat moron. Yes.. you read that right. The person who will inherit Trump’s coalition and use it to successfully grab power is not going to play by the rules of credentialed sissy-boys aka democrats. More ineffectual exercises of their imaginary powers will only speed up the appearance of an american Caesar.

To make matters worse, if that is possible, democrats have no plan or desire to address the socio-economic factors which caused the rise of Trump. Instead they are focusing on identity politic issues and virtue display bullshit which will results in them antagonizing even more voters in non-coastal states. They are just like the decrepit European royal families which were destroyed in aftermath of WW1. Also, trying to prevent Trump from running for election again will have no effect on the now almost inevitable rise of an american Caesar. In fact, Trump was accidentally the best chance of blocking an american Caesar because though he was a incompetent moron Trump had enough popular support to compete with and stop the rise of a competent fascist. Funny how these things work..

3] In the aftermath of that January 6 riot in DC, the dumbfucks (aka democrats) are trying to start another ‘War on Terror 2.0’ combined with a Patriot Act 2.0- which is darkly comic since this country lost the ‘War on Terror 1.0’. If you think otherwise, just look at how the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan turned into a spectacular and costly defeat. The same “geniuses” who cheerlead the failed ‘war on Terror 1.0’ in middle-eastern countries are now clamoring for a domestic ‘War and Terror 2.0’. Given that they seem hell-bent on persecuting over 40% of the people in this country (and over 95% of those with military experience and guns), this cannot end well for democrats. It is almost like these delusional dummies aka establishment democrats are trying to accidentally kickstart a second civil war, but one which takes the form of a decentralized insurgency. This cannot end well..

If democrats had any brains, they would have treated the January 6 riot in DC as if it was just another poorly organized riot by a bunch of incompetent bozos- which is exactly what it was! But the dumbfucks think that pretending this poorly organized riot was some serious threat to the republic will allow them to seize power, spite Trump and persecute his supporters. The numbnuts are doing this despite the fact that a majority of republicans did not see that riot as unjustified or a “threat to democracy”. As I mentioned earlier in this post, over 74 million people voted for Trump barely two months ago and they did that in spite of a 5-year long MSM campaign against him. If the dummies in democrat party think that persecuting his supporters (aka majority of registered republican voters) does not carry the inevitable risk 0f serious blowback, they are hallucinating.

It should also be pointed that trying to impeach Trump for a second time and/or trying to persecute him through spurious legal cases filed by prosecutors in democrat-run states such as NY will almost inevitably destroy whatever little credibility those institutions have in rest of country. To put it bluntly, any path taken by democrats other than ignoring Orange Man AND addressing the broader socio-economic factors behind his rise will result in a very large-scale backlash which that decrepit party and its stooges won’t be able to handle. Based on the way things are going, it is obvious that the dumbfucks have made their choice. The next four years might be even more ‘interesting’ than the past four.

Antifa Idiots are Ignorant of History and Lack Strategic Thinking

June 30, 2019 15 comments

I usually ignore worthless drama driven by attention-whores, and that is why you won’t see me writing yet another ‘hot take’ on something as insipid as the 1st debate between those all those 20 democratic candidates. Events like that pathetic clown show are less that meaningless, unless one or more of the candidates drops dead on stage. This is also why I also rarely write about the latest trends in ‘culture wars’ and other click-baity crap of no long-term significance. Having said that, I do occasionally write about such topics if their impact is potentially larger than yet another manufactured storm in a teacup. With that in mind, let us talk about antifa movement or more precisely the latest incident which has gotten them into the spotlight.

As some of you might have heard, a journalist known as Andy Ngo was violently assaulted while covering a clash between far-right and antifa demonstrators in Portland. Ironically, the link from sputniknews contains the most objective account of what went down. Also, I would rather not link to anything on breitbart, dailycaller, pjmedia etc. While you can easily find multiple clips of that incident on YouTube, it is worth pointing out that all of them show a guy with camera gear (Andy Ngo) being swarmed, sprayed and then assaulted by a bunch of guys sporting antifa gear. More importantly, there are no clips which show the guy in question assaulting antifa protesters. Here is a very short YT clip which captures the gist of what happened.

Now let me be clear about something.. Andy Ngo is a slimy grifter who is using his race to fleece aging white CONservative supporters of right-wing news outlets. He is basically an Asian version of Candace Owens or any of those forgettable and stereotypical black CONservative YouTubers whose act is predicated on them being non-white and pandering to idiots. Having said that, what he is doing is no different from what Rachael Maddow, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo etc do nightly for much more money. In other words, we cannot pretend that Any Ngo is any less of a journalist than the famous talking heads that appear on cable TV news or write in NYT or WP. And don’t pretend that such a story would have stayed small if the situation was reversed.

About two years ago, I posted a link to a clip which suggested that the alt-right in USA are much closer to the Sturmabteilung (SA) than NSDAP aka Nazis of Weimar-era Germany. The relevant point is that the antifa most closely resemble the ‘communist-type’ groups who engaged in street battles with the SA and NSDAP. The key word being ‘communist-type’ since these groups were driven less by ideology than a desire to oppose the SA and NSDAP. And yes.. I am aware that this assertion simplifies a lot of complex history. Nevertheless, it was SA and NSDAP who eventually won power for two important reasons. Firstly, the capitalist class in Germany preferred fascism since it allowed them to maintain the old hierarchy.

The second reason is, in my opinion, equally if not more important. While fascists had a relatively clear (if mediocre) set of promises for the general public and a leadership cadre, communist-types had neither. To make matters worse, they were defined by their opposition to fascists and being ‘soviet-sympathizers’ rather than as a viable option to fascists who promised to make Germany great again. The lack of sufficient public support in early-1930s allowed the fascists, with generous help from German capitalists and centrists, to seize power. The rest, as they say, is history. It is ironic that antifa types have not learned the most important lesson from history about how to confront fascists- if that is what they are.

Let me now say something that is heresy among the twitter-left and other “respectable” and “credentialed” intellectuals. The people who they identify as fascists and Nazis are in reality nothing more than pathetic grifters, disillusioned lumpenproletariat and drama queens. In other words, these alleged american fascists and Nazis are the equivalent of high-school cover bands playing some shitty music to get pussy. This is not to say that they could not one day end up becoming real fascists and Nazis. But lets be real, that is very unlikely to happen without some serious support by rich people and extenuating circumstances such as economic collapse.

Which is why the response of antifa to these morons is both comical and well as problematic. You probably guessed why its comical, now let me tell you why it is problematic. See.. a lot of people outside the twitter-left and careerists who live in a few coastal cities are not happy with liberalism in USA. To be more precise, they correctly associate liberalism with many highly problematic trends such as de-industrialization, precarity of livelihood, rent seeking through credentialization, rapidly growing inequality and the general disconnect between top 10% and everyone else.

A major part of the reason why grifters such as Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, Milo Yiannopoulos etc have been able to become far more famous, than they otherwise would have, comes down to them being able to articulate half-truths about issues which have been banished from mainstream public discourse. Many people see antifa as just another extension of the hated (neo)liberal elite and their status quo. You cannot, for example, pretend that allowing large-scale immigration from Mexico and other latin-american countries has no effect on wages in USA. But try saying anything to that effect in a speech at a coastal university and tons of SJWs, “woke” activists and antifa types will try to run you out of town. The same is true for issues such as wanting due process for adjudicating accusations of sexual harassment and assault or not wanting to pretend that a man with a beard who claims to a woman is one.

And this brings us to the other reason why assaulting grifters such as Andy Ngo is such a bad idea. To put it succinctly- it converts them into them deserving victims and validates their claims of systemic persecution. While credentialed losers who spent too much time on left-twitter or within their own incestuous social bubbles in coastal cities might believe otherwise, such attempts to shut down right-wing grifters is highly counterproductive. In case you are wondering, this is why I said that antifa idiots lack the ability to think strategically.

If you want to properly disrupt people like Andy Ngo, pay a mariachi band to follow him near the protests he is covering. It achieves the objective of making him look ridiculous without allowing him to claim victim-hood and expand his grifting operation. Assaulting him in public and in front of multiple smartphone cameras, on the other hand, makes him the victim and plays into his scam. Then again, antifa-types tend to be myopic idiots obsessed with ‘virtue display’.
