EXAMINING 'WHITE NATIONALISM' AS A CAMPAIGN STRATEGY FOR 2020 - Because that's precisely what it is
*Updated to include the first paragraph and a link to Part II/the supporting evidence.
The information presented below and in Part II, where we discuss the evidence to support these general claims (here: https://www.statecraftdiscerned.com/2019/03/evidence-of-white-nationalism-serving.html), should be viewed through the lens of what it looks like to see the process of establishing pretext play-out in real time. All of these actions are designed to serve a future purpose and namely, the preexisting justification to portray the President of the United States as something he most certainly is not in what will amount to an historic election.
Let's place some cards of concession on the table before we even start. Despite elements of stupidity woven throughout the fabric of the Left's unsavory and criminal acts targeting President Trump, his campaign, his family, his business and his administration, much of that stupidity is attributable to something that, for the Democrats, was an absolute. What it was not attributable to is general stupidity. When absolutes factor into the decision-making equation they dictate the process of analysis, taint the results and lead to unexpected outcomes that can unravel quickly beneath the lens of scrutiny.
In this particular case and in the minds of these Deep State actors, holding the absolute position that Clinton would win the 2016 election given their likely understanding that it was rigged for her, was a critical error. It would cause them to disregard perhaps not entirely but to a sufficient level, the possibility that Clinton would not win. In so doing, it would leave the Democrats vulnerable because they were banking on - absolutely - maintaining long-tenured and complete control of the mechanisms that would shield their previous and criminal actions. It was likely an actual and significant component of the broader strategy.
Revisit history and watch Ben Rhodes here. There is NO POSSIBLE WAY that Clinton losing ever entered his mind on election night. Just examine his body language, demeanor, struggle for words, etc. Word to the wise - he didn't all of a sudden get real confident on election night knowing she'd win. He ALWAYS knew she'd win - right up until she didn't. They ALL did, right up until she didn't. Enjoy: https://youtu.be/xtCs-kK2hQU
Did it look like he had a plan to deal with her loss? Hell no. None of them did and if they did I'll eat crow at the same time I tell them their plan was shitty and entirely ineffective.
To my point - these are smart people who make stupid decisions SOME of the time. To fail to regard these people as intelligent and capable would be as fatal the Left's supposition that Clinton would never lose. Therefore, don't do it. These people are smart but you can see their strategy coming from a mile away.
So let's get right to it - no one has done a single tangible thing as it relates to Conservative censorship across mainstream and social media platforms. Beyond the blatantly obvious, here's why this is entirely detrimental to those with Conservative or traditional eggs in Mr. Trump's basket. We'll demonstrate this with some simple questions about human nature, deviance and criminality - it's that universal.
What happens when someone deviates from the norm, commits crime, etc.? It all depends on the notion of success. If the individual succeeds and desires to continue the behavior, the general trend is for the individual to incrementally become more aggressive until such actions are checked with consequences. There's significant brain chemistry in play here.
So then, what happens when the Left is able to delete entire social media communities (hello former Reddit users - I'm one) with impunity? What happens when Facebook is able to suspend Conservative account after Conservative account with impunity? What happens when Twitter is able to do the same as Facebook with impunity? Easy - they continue in the same direction looking for additional avenues to further the practice or adapt it more effectively. There's significant brain chemistry in play here.
Before we move forward, here was our original discussion about 'white nationalism' becoming a 2020 campaign strategy for the Left: https://gab.com/Statecraft_Discerned/posts/UG9jQTVCdFJ1d3RDSUJIL0l5UFRmQT09
Now, examine the timeline here because timing ALWAYS matters:
1. New Zealand shootings happened and we drew attention to the peculiarity immediately: https://gab.com/Statecraft_Discerned/posts/NWp3STJrOU5zOHlLSC9BUW5wVWR6QT09
2. As noted in the previously linked post (point 1), the MSM immediately attributed the 'white nationalism' component to President Trump (a president of another country from a timezone with a 17-hour difference, I mind you.) Go back and look - it was everywhere and it was immediate.
3. Almost immediately, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, worked to place 'white nationalism' into the congressional record by scheduling a hearing: https://thehill.com/homenews/house/434555-house-judiciary-committee-plans-hearing-on-white-nationalism
4. DHS quickly entered the game via Democratic the committee chairman by issued directives for media platforms to censor 'white nationalist' content: https://gab.com/Statecraft_Discerned/posts/ejloOWF1YndqOW1iR3R2eWxGaWNTdz09
*This is significant and bears repeating - it's a maneuver from the Democratically controlled House DHS Committee Chairman targeting something - 'white nationalism' - that the federal government and in particular the FBI regards as a domestic terrorism. Revisit point number 2 above as you let that sink-in. What's actually happening is that the Left is painting the president with with a 'white nationalist' ergo 'domestic terrorist' brush. If you haven't identified it yet, here's the play - on the eve of the 2020 election, it's all lining-up for the media and tech giants to censor the president (censor his campaign?) in the name of combating 'white nationalism' and 'domestic terrorism.' Just ask Twitter, they're already indicating that they are considering flagging the President Trump's speech to his subscribers. Again, a multinational corporation is seeking to censor the words of the President of the United States because they don't align with the political views of said corporation.
5. House Chairman for the Committee on Foreign Relations, Eliot Engel, then issued a public call for the federal government to counter 'white nationalist' international terrorism: https://www.statecraftdiscerned.com/2019/03/prediction-becomes-reality-engel-makes.html
Again, timing ALWAYS matters so let's ask these questions? Where were the echoing objections to 'white nationalism,' as dominating domestic headlines, prior to the NZ shootings? How did all of this concern seem to manifest over night? What is the relationship between political elites in this country and NZ; especially elites on the Left? Why have so many of those elites; including John Podesta who visited NZ immediately preceding the shootings, recently traveled to NZ? What was the exact nature of the intelligence apparatuses for each country under the guise of the Five Eyes intelligence accord? Why is all of this 'white nationalism' concern immediately following the NZ shooting? Why do the Democrats have their hands all over the entirety of it all?
In short, it's because 'white nationalism' has been determined by the Left to be a significant part of their 2020 campaign strategy. They are intelligently using federal mechanisms to saturate the federal buracruacy with this subject so that when they roll it out in full-force for the actual campagin season, their otherwise fraudulent message will have perceived legitimacy due it's preexistence in the federal record and their ongoing attempts to redress it.
It's also perfect fit for the Left's Alinsky-based identity politics given its ability to pit and divide the American populace. In summary, it's a perfect campaign strategy for them and that's precisely what it is - a campaign strategy; not an actual problem.
It's amazing what you can get away with when you keep a malleable people ignorant and distracted. Not us though - we all see this coming from a mile away.
