Pat Buchanan on Trump’s First Firestorm

Pat Buchanan, as keen an observer of politics as there is, has drawn some lessons for Donald Trump from the firestorm of lies and protests resulting from Trump’s mislabeled “Muslim ban.”

Actually, candidate Trump faced numerous firestorms. The travel ban is his first as President Trump.

This ban, went the weekend wail, is the “Muslim ban” of the Trump campaign. But how so, when not one of the six largest Muslim countries — Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Turkey — was on the list? Missing also were three-dozen other Muslim countries.

Of the seven countries facing a 90-day ban, three are U.S.-designated state sponsors of terror, and the other four are war zones. Clearly, this is about homeland security, not religious discrimination.

The criterion for being included in the travel ban appears to be that these places are the more likely breeding grounds for terrorists.

While the establishment may no longer be capable of inspiring and leading the nation, so detested is it, it has not lost its appetite or its ability to break and bring down presidents.

And Trump is vulnerable, not only because he is an envied outsider who seized the highest prize politics has on offer, but because his agenda would cancel out that of the elites.

They believe in open borders, free trade, globalization. Trump believes in securing the Southern border, bringing U.S. industry home, economic nationalism, “America First.”

They want endless immigration from the Third World to remake America into the polyglot “universal nation” of Ben Wattenberg’s utopian vision. Trump’s followers want back the America they knew.

Our foreign policy elites see democratization as a vocation and an autocratic Russia as an implacable enemy. Trump instead sees Moscow as a potential ally against real enemies like al-Qaida and ISIS.

There is another reason for the reflexive howl at Trump’s travel ban. The establishment views it, probably correctly, as the first move toward a new immigration policy, built on pre-1965 foundations, and rooted in a preference for Western-Christian immigrants first.

When the Times rages that “American ideals” or “traditional American values” are under attack by Trump, what they really mean is that their ideology and agenda are threatened by Trump.

We are headed for a series of collisions and crises, and what has happened in Europe will likely happen here. As the Third World invasion and growing Islamization of the Old Continent — which the EU has proven unable to stop — has discredited centrist parties and continuously fed a populist-nationalist uprising there, so may it here also.

And Trump not only appears to have no desire to yield to his enemies in politics and the media, he has no choice, as he is now the personification of a surging Middle American counterrevolution.

Undeniably, there are great numbers of Americans who agree with the libels the Times showered on Trump and, by extension, his backers whom Hillary Clinton designated “the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … deplorables.”

But by whatever slurs they are called, Middle Americans seem prepared to fight. And history shows that such people do not calmly accept the loss of what is most precious to them — the country they grew up in, the country they love.

They have turned to Trump to lead them. Why should he not, having been raised up by them, and knowing in his own heart what the establishment and the media think of him and would do to him?

Ten days in, and already it is “Game On!”

There is absolutely nothing that Donald Trump can do to win over the (((media))), so he might as well continue to be a thorn in their side, draining the swamp, making Americans safer, and trolling them with his brilliance.

  1. Stopping terrorists from entering the USA might actually make more terrorists want to go there and cause trouble, ironically. Fighting racism and all that, you know? Blow up any racist who says we blow people up, right?

  2. Liberals’ appalling display of manic behavior over Trump and Muslim refugees is something to behold. What to make of their hatred for him and these third-rate excuses for human beings! How could they allow themselves to become so demented?

    Spurred on by Soros, (((fake tears Schumer))), Pelosi, Sharpton, McCain, Obama, and the media whipping them into a frenzy, the sky is falling, OMG, those poor, devastated, all alone, 109 refugees who “had a RIGHT to come here”, were held up a few hours at a comfortable, heated, airport! HOW AWFUL! But Obama permanently banning Cuban refugees, some who could be Spaniards, the day before he left office was perfectly OK!

    As we scratch our heads over what’s going on, (((we do know))), what mental disease have they contracted, Trump and his staff, along with Fox and some of its sane guests try to naively reason with them when surely their gut tells them its an impossibility. Is there anyone there besides a programmed robot? Their brainwashing is complete…no reality whatsoever. What do we do with this enemy that we are forced to live with?

    My tweet of the day on Fox’s Twitter timeline was “Would liberals feel the same if they were White European refugees?”

    • Great question posed in your last sentence. We know the answer.

      If they were White European trannies the left would still be exploding. I guess we might call it White Tranny privilege. If it were South African white farmers the left would be engaging in violent protests to keep them out of the States.

      • Took me 20 years or so to finally realize how intelligent and level headed Pat Buchanan was. He understands that this “Trumpening” of the past year is just the beginning of something bigger. He won’t say it; but his words weren’t hiding this very much: civil war on the horizon…
