Obama vs. Trump On The Nation-State—“The True Foundation For Happiness And Harmony”

Obama vs. Trump On The Nation-State—“The True Foundation For Happiness And Harmony”, by John Derbyshire.

Last Saturday, April 23,  Obama spoke to a “town hall meeting” at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster, seven hundred yards from Westminster Abbey, where English monarchs back to Edward the Confessor 950 years ago are buried, along with many other cultural notables.

The audience consisted of 400 young people apparently chosen by the American Embassy. To look at them, you would never know you were in England — let alone seven minutes’ walk away from the very hearth-place of Englishness.


Obama was not so subtle with the “non-whites good, whites bad” message:

There were 116 audience members in my picture. Tallying up those of white European appearance, and giving benefit of the doubt to ambiguous cases, I got 51, which is to say 44 percent. Thirty faces in the picture — that’s 26 percent — were Negroes. Seven of the women wore Muslim headscarves. Royal Horticultural? More like the Royal Multicultural. I weep for England. …

A morbidly obese Pakistani woman, no headscarf, lumbered to her feet and told our president that, quote: “I’m coming out to you as a non-binary person, which means that I don’t fit within …” At that point she got all verklempt and teared up. Naturally the audience applauded wildly. …

Obama praised [Mrs Merkel] for her courage and foresight in opening her country to a million and a half feral male Muslims who’d rather be drawing welfare in Düsseldorf than shouldering a rifle in Damascus.

Contrast this with Donald Trump, who recently said:

No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must start doing the same. We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony.

Added Pat [Buchanan]: “Is that not a definition of a patriotism that too many among our arrogant elites believe belongs to yesterday?”

Trump is a nationalist. How non-PC. At least the USA soon gets to vote, to choose between the media and Democrat vision of diversity, and Trump’s vision of a harmonious nation-state. Note that a harmonious society does not import people who say they are superior and want to rape and behead others.

The PC people are going to catch on that this is a threat to them, and will ramp up the propaganda to fever pitch before November. Trump has caught up from well behind Clinton in US polls, so the onslaught of anti-Trump material will begin soon.
