Mitt Romney: Trump Will Change America With “Trickle-Down Racism”


By Hunter Wallace

According to Mitt Romney, a President Trump would bring about not only “trickle-down racism,” but “trickle-down bigotry” and “trickle-down misogyny” as well:

“I don’t want to see trickle-down racism,” Romney said in an interview here in a suite overlooking the Wasatch Mountains, where he is hosting his yearly ideas conference. “I don’t want to see a president of the United States saying things which change the character of the generations of Americans that are following. Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation, and trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny, all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America. …”

In 2012, Romney was “honored” to have Trump’s endorsement, even after the whole birther crusade against Obama. He also won the Republican primary by running to the right of all his opponents on immigration.

Mitt has a point though: we like Trump because we agree “presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation” and we also believe he will change the “character of America” in a kind of “trickle-down” way. This isn’t because we believe Trump is a racist or a White Nationalist. We’ve said all along that Trump isn’t one of us.

Instead, we believe that Trump doesn’t really like political correctness, that he doesn’t enjoy being bound by restrictive norms, that he doesn’t believe in those norms, and that he shares our belief that the cucks are weak and unmanly. Trump is also a nationalist. He isn’t a preening cuckservative like Mitt Romney who engages in virtue signaling over “racism” and “misogyny” in order to impress the media.

This is an important distinction that the media fails to grasp: Trump has a passionate and devoted Alt-Right following, but the Alt-Right doesn’t believe Trump is a racist. The Alt-Right loves Trump because it hates everything about mainstream conservatism. Speaking more broadly here, we hate their ideas, their effete moral posturing, their weakness, their tone policing, the housebroken cucks who suck up to the Left on MSNBC every night. We hate their physiology. We hate the way they dress. We hate their corrupted religion. We hate their routine purges at the behest of the SPLC. More than anything else, we believe their role in the system is to lose gracefully as the loyal opposition, to stand athwart history in their bow-ties meekly protesting “now wait a minute,” only to assimilate every new leftist innovation and baptize it as “conservatism” and “morality.”

Trump is only the instrument of their destruction. Their visceral negative reaction to Trump is what caused the Alt-Right to embrace him. It started out as trolling, but snowballed from there into a contest between nationalism and conservatism for dominance over the Right. Simply by breaking their monopoly over the Right, Trump will have a “trickle down” effect as president, which we believe will be positive.
