Electoralism/Democratism

“Conservatives” against Trump

This is beautiful. The entire array of the neoconservative/”movement conservative”/Republican alliance is squirming over Trump, which means they obviously think he’s a genuine threat to their hegemony on the American “right.”

The best possible scenario that can come out of the Trump candidacy would be for the GOP to be permanently split into two warring factions, the neocon-led faction and a populist-nationalist faction, or even two separate parties, that would leave the “right-wing” permanently fractured to the point they could never again develop the degree of unity necessary to triumph in national elections. This would ensure permanent Democratic hegemony, which would in turn mean that we revolutionaries would have eliminated one of the enemies we are facing in this two-front war, and can intensity the struggle against the totalitarian humanist neo-liberal establishment.

National Review

GLENN BECK As the election of 2008 approached, America was in crisis. And as we would soon learn, that crisis would not go to waste. Years after Bill Clinton disingenuously claimed that the era of big government was over, Obama won his party’s nomination by promising its furious revenge. For constitutional conservatives, the Republican contest functioned less like a primary and more like an abandonment. Politically orphaned by their party, conservatives were forced to either stay home or hold their noses and vote for a progressive Republican. There was a silver lining, however. Rising out of the ashes of that electoral defeat came the Tea Party. The media struggled to explain it away as racist, xenophobic, and jingoistic. But the truth is, the Tea Party did not arise because Barack Obama defeated his opposition. It arose because there was no opposition.

  1. I should probably clarify what I mean by “revolutionaries” in the intro to the article above. I am referring to all those who wish to see the American empire overthrown internationally, the domestic federal system dissolved, the police state rolled back and ultimately defeated, and corporate plutocracy dismantled in the economic sphere. This would generally include most of the movements and tendencies described in the ATS statement of purpose, and all those who are in general agreement with the majority of the ARV-ATS 25-Point Program.
