The Dissident Right has no viable presidential candidate. Trump is not /our guy/. He’s had three years to make good on his campaign promises to his voting base and is quickly losing steam, while his previously hot takes are made lukewarm by his actions. He’s clearly not a man of his word and so it comes as no surprise that the Dissident Right is, well, dissident and angry.
Let’s be clear: we are all aware that with the current economic climate, rise of radical feminism, dramatic increase of women in the workforce, decreasing in earnings of family men, the housing market bubble and rising inflation have all made it drastically more difficult for a middle class white man to provide for a family on one household income. In addition to these undeniable factors, the government is systematically siphoning what little we make and funneling it into the hands of minorities and illegal aliens to the tune of 729 billion dollars (2017) in for welfare spending alone, never mind the auxiliary programs for education and immigration. New Deal policies like Social Security will be absolutely worthless by the time our generation comes up to retirement, and we can’t count on the trade markets to handle our investments, like retirement savings and home values properly to secure our own futures.
The current welfare system is stacked decidedly against us, while vehemently and racially biased and outdated programs like Affirmative Action all but guarantee that there is a decided war against our people. These are no longer the days of a white Southern man earning a fair dollar to guide his family through the world. As much as we would like to think we’re going to bring that back, it’s not going to happen in Weimerica. The harsh, relentless reality is that the old world and way of life no longer exists. We cannot afford to fall back on our misdirected proud Anglo morals that instruct us to “earn an honest dollar” to support our family. Should we continue to strive for that? Absolutely. Should we stupidly adhere to a moral value that our political adversaries never held sacred? Absolutely not. Save your moral values for your brothers and sisters, especially regarding this Yang UBI nonsense.
Are Alaskans failing to provide for their families when they receive the dividends from oil profits? The US has a real GDP of 19 trillion dollars and you want to criticize your brothers and sisters over a $12k income supplement program paid via VAT that would absolutely obliterate a grossly expanded welfare system which supports the exact demographic we’d like to see shrink. Do not forget the US is an oligarchy. A VAT tax hurts only the major corporations who are actively writing laws that denigrate, demoralize and destroy our people and the way of life we pursue. This is not a fair and balanced democratic system. We are not free. This isn’t fair. We have men in jail because they couldn’t even afford effective legal counsel, yet we have men on our side with the audacity to accuse their brothers in the movement of being lumpenproletariats for supporting welfare reform, simply because this reform idea came from the mouth of a leftist chinaman. Have you forgotten Charles Murray?
I get it. You’re scared of communism, socialism and democrats. It’s hard to get over what Roosevelt did to the South because it was unthinkable that he wouldn’t reward a solid voting base with funds from federal programs, but he gave that money to the states his administration was courting instead. And, the South suffered. Damn Democrats. But, we should be willing to learn from past mistakes and avoid throwing our blind support into one particular side of the political spectrum, a side which does not look out for our interests as white middle class Southerners.
The Yang Gang meme crosses the boundary between Left and Right and screams that we want to be heard. It just might be enough to scare Trump into revising his policies or begin implementing the policies he promised us in 2016. We are not in danger of a communist takeover in the Dissident Right; however, we are in real danger of falling from the middle class because we’re so stuck on the idea of revitalizing a dead American Dream, which we fail to recognize has been dead since the 1960s. So, perhaps instead of using this as a divisive tactic, the Red Scare of the Dissident Right, maybe look the other way, while the irony bros you accuse of nihilism work their meme magic. Try to hear the message behind the meme: We are not broken; we are looking for alternatives.
The Yang Gang debate among ourselves has brought out the worst and most insulting accusations: those on our side who like the idea of Yang’s UBI income are “weak men” who fail to support their families. Allow me to bring something to the forefront that appears to have been forgotten in this debate: The middle class is crumbling, and we are all struggling to support our families, while minorities and illegal aliens are recipients of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax funded welfare programs. Your kids are eating PB and J for lunch and their kids are gorging themselves on food stamp luxuries, literally obese off your tax dollars – and you’re paying for their diabetes as well under a poorly written healthcare system specifically designed to burden the middle class.
Financial insecurity among the middle class and the rising generations is so rampant, millennials are saying they either don’t want kids, or are delaying having kids because they are insecure financially. Insulting your brothers and sisters using outdated tropes developed 60 years ago based on the lie of the American Dream is hardly an extension of brotherly solidarity, and completely ignores the underlying message of what Yang Gang irony bros are saying: It is undeniable truth that we can no longer play fair and support our families, raise and educate our children, own property and protect our rights on a one family income, while playing by outdated conservative rules and values.
Do you hear what’s being said to you when you accuse them of being failures? Go ahead and gloss this over while calling it a nihilistic pursuit, but where are the viable alternatives? Loudly throwing support behind a ridiculously absurd political candidate as a form of memetic warfare to highlight what can arguably be called the root cause of our people’s primary complaint is a highly effective form of political dissent. Maybe our current president will listen when he sees that he will surely lose reelection – an inevitability we should begin preparations for.
Yours truly, always.
Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn! I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won, And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.
