Calling all Deplorables
Ilana Mercer brings a message of hope
“Republicans and Democrats have tinkered with the country’s composition and character long enough to account for Biden’s America. You know it.”—Ilana
I had written what I thought was an inspired column about “Trump Going Into Beast Mode.” It was a post-politics column. It was meant to point disappointed voters away from the crass and crooked politics of democracy, and toward that process Trump always somehow sets in motion. And that process has been Trump’s achievement. He has blown the lid off the American political system in all its corruption, in general, and, of late, he has exposed the farce that is the “democratic” integrity of the system, in particular.
Trump’s latest, unintentional victory is to unmask raw, ripe, unfettered democracy as a travesty to all, unworkable except in a territory the size of the ancient Athenian city-state, or maybe modern-day Monaco or Estonia. Democracy is when everything is up for grabs without constitutional limits. Globalism is an extension of that. Trump has exposed globalism as democracy on a world-wide scale, funded by Americans. Democracy is toxic, from both party perspectives—especially since we no longer have a republic where the central authority has clearly limited and delimited powers.
Look, you just have to accept that the Tipping Point has arrived. That the abysmal Biden campaign worked because it targeted a coalition of weepy white women—including those with the Y Chromosome—and the rest of tribalized America. Joe and Kamala won the un-American, anti-American vote, which is now a majority. Republicans and Democrats have tinkered with the country’s composition and character long enough to account for Biden’s America. You know it.
Readers of the “Beast” column, however, failed to see my process-oriented take as a hopeful one. They wanted me mired in politics, which means mired in the power play of election-fraud thinking. Nevertheless, here again is my positive, anti-politics message reiterated. Trump is just now getting into Beast Mode. Dissident Donald will be rising now for real. The presidency was Donald J. Trump dabbling at Establishment respectability. From now on, he’ll be running a populist movement, perhaps a new party—after all, he owns the Republican Party. This operation will run parallel to an administration that’s viewed by 74 million Deplorables as illegitimate.
Under the Harris Administration, “The Process of Trump” will continue. As outlined in my book “The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed,” that process consists of “action and counteraction, force and counterforce in the service of liberty.” It’ll see Trump, a political Samson, continue to threaten to bring the “democratic” den of iniquity crashing down on its patrons. And he’ll do so as the parallel president.
The healthiest and most intuitive response to deep-seated, irreconcilable unhappiness—political or personal—is to peacefully exit the abusive relationship. Above and beyond holding rallies and countering the Kamala Administration policies—Donald J. Trump will catalyze many more creative, informal acts of secession. Young patriots, I hope, will congregate in compounds of likeminded individuals. They’ll migrate virtually to Parler, the free speech social network. And they’ll withdraw en masse from the miseducation system, primary, secondary and tertiary. Two parallel nations and their attendant presidencies will form. And the low-grade upheaval against the Deep State and its Deep Tech handmaiden will continue apace. All good things.
Happy Thanksgiving to 74 million patriots.
