How The Alt-Right Broke Up With Donald Trump
I’ve put together a timeline of my disillusionment with President Trump using my own blog entries. This is only my own personal trajectory, but it covers all the key events:
The Euphoria of Election Night
It is November 8, 2016.
Donald Trump wins the 2016 presidential election. The Alt-Right is euphoric.
Following the Heilgate media firestorm, Donald Trump “disavows” the Alt-Right on November 22, 2016. Two weeks after winning the presidency, Trump cucks to appease the media and throws his most passionate fans under the bus. It won’t be the first time. This sets off months of fighting with the Alt-Lite.
Alt-Right vs. Alt-Lite
From November 23 to December 3, 2016, the Alt-Right and Alt-Lite engage in a vicious feud online. It was caused by Trump’s disavowal of the Alt-Right in an interview with The New York Times.
The Disappointing Cabinet
I spent most of December covering Trump’s Cabinet picks. We were thrilled with Jeff Sessions, Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Michael Flynn. It went rapidly downhill from there: Reince Preibus, Ben Carson, Betsy DeVos and Nikki Haley, James Mattis, General Kelly, Andy Puzder, Gary Cohn, Andrew Liveris, Rex Tillerson, Rick Perry and Sean Spicer and Mick Mulvaney.
I didn’t like the Cabinet. I said so at the time. I went on James Edwards radio show and said it was full of generals, big donors, corporate CEOs, Wall Street insiders, #NeverTrumpers, TruCons and establishment hacks. I wondered why Trump would pick people like Gary Cohn, the president of Goldman Sachs, and Andy Puzder, the CEO of Hardee’s, even though he had ran as a champion of the White working class.
At the time, I was accused of black-pilling my readers because I was so unhappy with the Cabinet. It seemed like a reasonable point. At the very least, we agreed that we should give Trump a chance. But anyway, it was clear by mid-December that we were starting to have serious doubts.
From December 27 to January 4, we feuded with the Alt-Lite over the #Deploraball. By New Year’s Eve, it was clear that the incoming Trump administration wasn’t going to be challenging the status quo. The Alt-Lite was desperate to ride the Trump Train into the mainstream. It was apparent to us that the new line was going to be the same as the old line with one major difference: “racism” and “anti-Semitism” were going to remain taboo, but homosexuality would now be celebrated.
Bright Red Flags
Around New Year’s Eve, I wrote “No, It’s Not MILO’s World” in which I predicted the demise of Milo Yiannopoulos. I also wrote “The Trump Honeymoon Is Already Over” and “Too Far Gone: OD In 2017.” Privately, I was already very black-pilled and compared 2017 and the arrival of the incoming Trump administration to entering “the gates of this false paradise next month.”
On January 6, 2016, I made a point to note that the God Emperor had maintained total silence on the #BLMKidnapping in Chicago even though he had repeatedly lamented the death of black thugs from gang warfare.
#GoldenShowers and John Lewis change my negative opinion of President Trump. I finally agreed to take my wife to see the Trump Inauguration. I’m persuaded by the argument that we should reserve judgement and give Trump his first hundred days before jumping to conclusions about his presidency.
The Trump Inauguration
President Trump is inaugurated on January 20, 2017.
I travel with my wife to DC to meet up with family and attend the Trump Inauguration. Predictably, the #Deploraball is consumed by antifa violence. Richard Spencer is also attacked by antifa. The antifa riot in DC which is a precursor of their actions to come over the next months.
The first hundred days begin. My attitude at this point is let’s wait and see.
The Refugee and Travel Ban
On January 29, 2017, Trump signs an executive order suspending the refugee program and temporarily banning visitors from seven Muslim countries. It is blocked on February 4th.
Jeff Sessions Is Confirmed As Attorney General
This was probably the highwater mark. It happened on February 9th. Up until that point, we could say that Trump’s failure to deal with antifa violence was caused by not having his Attorney General.
Michael Flynn Resigns As NSA Advisor
It is February 14, 2017.
Under pressure from the Lügenpresse, Michael Flynn resigns as National Security Advisor. Trump cucks again and fires Flynn because of the Russia narrative. The Deep State claims its first victim.
The Joint Address
Under pressure to condemn “anti-Semitism,” Trump addresses the crank calls that had been placed to Jewish centers at the top of his State of the Union Address, which later turned out to be the work of a disgruntled black former employee of The Intercept and a Jewish teenager in Israel. It is a stark reminder of Jewish privilege.
Jose Antonio Vargas, America’s most famous illegal alien, thinks so little of President Trump’s commitment to immigration enforcement that he attends the Joint Address at the invitation of Nancy Pelosi.
The Second Travel Ban Is Blocked
It is March 16, 2017.
The second travel ban and suspension of the refugee program is blocked by a federal judge. A few weeks later, we have returned to the status quo ante on the inflow of refugees.
The Ryan Agenda
Instead of moving forward on anything bold, interesting or new, the Republican Congress moves on the Ryan agenda: repealing Obamacare, tax cuts, deregulation, etc. It is the same agenda that President Marco Rubio or President Jeb Bush would have tackled in their first hundred days. Ryancare turns out to be a fiasco. Just as I predicted, the #TruCons plunged into the healthcare vortex and Trump was seriously damaged by it.
Losing Interest In Trump
From March 24 until April 5, I am growing increasingly disgusted with mainstream politics. After a year and a half of blogging about Donald Trump, I put politics aside and return to my interest in history. It is a refreshing change. It seems like a good time to take a break from it all.
The Alleged Gassing In Syria
The so-called gassing in Syria happened on April 4th.
Caught off guard, I find my attention ripped away from my research by warmongering neocons. It took all of two days for Donald Trump to launch a military strike on Syria.
The Final Straw
The attack on Syria was the final straw.
It was a stunning turn of events. Donald Trump ripped up his “America First” foreign policy and threw it in the garbage in order to appease the political establishment. In doing so, he severely undermined our confidence in his character, cast doubt on every other promise he made on the campaign trail and sawed off the leg of his appeal that comes from a non-interventionist foreign policy.
For the Alt-Right, Donald Trump was an attractive candidate to us primarily because he was an “America First” candidate on trade, immigration and foreign policy. So far, the Deep State, Lügenpresse and the federal courts have defeated him on all three fronts. It started when he disavowed the Alt-Right. Then he overreacted and fired Michael Flynn. It culminated in abandoning his entire foreign policy. We now have ample proof that President Trump isn’t the strong leader we imagined him to be.
We gave Trump’s America almost a hundred days. It only took 76 days to be revealed as false paradise.
