Failing Up:
The Future of the Democratic Party

581 words

Barack Obama won’t run for office in 2012. Just as the GOP’s crushing 2008 defeat resulted in a revolt within the party that brought it back to life, the DNC’s inevitable 2010 defeat will have a similar effect for them. The vanguard that brought Obama into office is already mired in disillusionment and disarray. The exodus of working class White males from the DNC has destroyed its electoral viability, particularly in the Midwest. If Obama doesn’t show himself the door, he’ll be shown the door in the 2012 primaries.

But he’s unlikely to object, as he was already a lame duck when he swore in. His entire tragic career has been one of his restless ambition driving him to fail up in search of the power to impose the social justice he craves. At every stage, from the streets of Chicago all the way up to the Oval Office, he’s failed over and over again to accomplish any of his political goals. At every stage, he blames the office he’s in. He refuses to accept that he’s incapable of mastering the political process and relies on his oratorical gifts and the soft bigotry of low expectations for non-White politicians to climb up to the next office.

To the untrained eye, Obama appears to have reached the highest possible office: President of the United States of America. But there’s a higher office, one that empowers him to be an agent of global change. It’s an office unencumbered by electoral cycles, partisan politics, tough compromises, and the stifling requirement that he limit the scope of his activism to one single nation.

That office is that of the former President. It’s the one he was born for, where he can rely exclusively on oratorical fluff, where he can deal exclusively with international elites, and where he can devote the entirety of his attention to his pet causes. He’ll no longer be bothered with distractions like governing, being a commander-in-chief, and pandering to gun-toting evangelical crackers.

While the DNC is facing an existential crisis, our monolithic bipartisan machine will assuredly return to stasis. Karl Rove’s dreams of a “Permanent Majority” fail to account for the probability that the party in power will sabotage itself. His coining that phrase is ironic, given that Mr. Rove has single-handedly sabotaged a secure GOP majority once already. His nascent “shadow network” of Business Republicans and neocons will serve GOP voters yet another round of buyer’s remorse.

In light of this, the DNC’s path to victory is pretty direct: class warfare. They’ll reinvent themselves as the populist, protectionist, and isolationist defenders of the working class underdogs of every color and creed. Hillary could accomplish this with Bill out in front. Jim Webb is ideally positioned to exploit this opportunity. Whoever the candidate is, he or she will offer an implicit appeal to tribal identity to lure back Midwestern Whites and an explicit appeal for the working- and middle-classes to unite against the corrupt Republican elites.

The GOP’s complete disavowal of social issues, complete refusal to acknowledge or identify with White American interests, and its eagerness to accomplish libertarian and neocon goals at the behest of its business interests and the Israel Lobby will assure that the Democratic defamation is both accurate and deserved. Midwestern Whites will be tempted to give the DNC one last chance to live up to the populist and cornucopian promises they stockpile in their campaign buses (where they’re presumably stored between campaigns

    I’m seeing Obama/Clinton for 2012. If that term isn’t a total disaster, she’ll run in 2016, although she’ll be pretty old. These people don’t just quit, and they sure don’t let reality stand in their way.

    That Obama knows he’s toast makes him even more dangerous for the next couple years. After the Democrats’ defeat this Nov., Obama, in a midnight session, could possibly ram through Congress a mass amnesty for mestizos, subtle forms of reparations (wealth redistribution), and who knows what else.

      Wolf,

      Good point. Though he’ll probably be too hamstrung to pull off anything legislative. He may well cause some executive damage. The Executive Branch has a breathtaking license to creatively apply and interpret legislation, thanks in large part to his predecessor.

    The above shows an ability not to get swept up in momentary emotions. It would be improved by specifically identifying the Judeo-WASP mechanism of control, which is intentionally dividing the white vote between the two parties.

    I have a question: does anyone think Obama may represent an absolute end to our disastrous, multiculturalism? Will our European American ‘life condition’ begin recovery now? I’d like a perspective (or two) to these questions. Thank you.

      I think he represents the beginning of the end. The absolute end I think will occur when a number scientific findings, following the already existing biological studies and significant data present, further show that race is a reality (something that isn’t news to anyone here, and deep, buried within their consciousness, even to most people….even though they won’t admit it) to the point where it can no longer be denied and ignored by those in power, and when full-scale racial violence breaks out. Is it a certainty that this will all happen? No, but its HIGHLY likely that it will happen, and it wouldn’t surprise me if it happened in the next few years.

      With that said, it doesn’t automatically mean that the european american condition will recover with the death of multiculturalism and the complete separation of races in america. The Indo-European race started to degenerate long before the advent of multicultural societies. Just because a race of a once collectively noble quality isolates itself, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will regain that quality merely because its now separate from others. Take the Japanese for instance (though probably more accurate to describe them as a sub-group within a particular race). Their country is almost entirely mono-ethnic (with the exception of small minorities of koreans and chinese…..though they may soon be gone since there is a large growing movement to deport these ethnic groups). And yet they have a highly decadent culture, with few examples of their noble past still present, and they don’t seem to be too pleased with their existential condition (as seen from their enormous suicide rates, among the 10 highest in the world).

      In order for a race to regain its noble spirit (the solar race), an elite (not the type of elite thats in power in western “civilization”) amongst the race must arise and will that component (since the Spirit is free, the race of the spirit not a given) back unto the racial body and soul of the particular racial group, just like how it was willed for the race to first have that quality.

        LightofApollo:

        Thank you for your analysis, and I apologise for my tardy response. I do think our pan-European world is reaching a state of fatigue, by way of this debt-based, fiat currency model. As per your concerns: the growing importance of racial realities (i.e. demographics and genetics) is positively challenging the criminal effects of the transnational, banking paradigm.

        As for our recovery (both demographic and cultural): indeed, the Indo-European qualities of old is never to return.

        What we do have left of our qualities (still substantially existent) ought to adapt to new, but favourable circumstances. Such, does not imply a violation of our traditions, but a long-term re-positioning of them over the raceless (and materialistic) schemes of others.

        The old traditions of spirit and soul will eventually bear out again via trial and error. In other words: just about every white man and woman will come into contact with their ‘genetic awareness’, and re-assert their preservation on all fronts (i.e. social, political, economic, and martial). This re-assertion for a new circumstance is a natural reaction fuelling our genetic drive. Obviously, the process of such rediscovery and application is a long-term project.

        Nota bene: we will see much progress made in our lifetime. Admittedly, I often fall into a disorientation about our standing, but quickly recover from ego’s control.

        En fin: as we all know, the Internet (not unlike Gutenberg’s press) has already launched these issues into a collective and growing racial awareness.

      Edgardus,

      Obama has triggered a tipping point in the White American mind by being the first hostile “other” in a deeply symbolic position of power over them. Jewish mimicry of White American manner and appearance has largely allowed them to disempower us without triggering the tribal defensive reaction nested deep in the darkest corner of the mind, but Obama can’t do that – despite being no worse than your typical White gentile anti-American elite. When historians try to look back to when the White American people began to stir back to life, they’ll probably point to those few weeks in which both the economy entered a tailspin and Obama entered the White House.

      In short, yes. I believe we have a long way to go, but that the wind is now at our back for the first time in several decades. The task before us is to translate that deep and foreboding panic, that sick feeling in the gut of having been cuckolded on a cosmic scale, and channel that into active and sustainable political channels.

        Mr. Parrott:

        Thank you for your insight, and I apologise for my tardy response.

        Yes, I’ve often experienced that ‘deep and foreboding panic’ as I’ve walked the streets of New York, Madrid, and Milán. It has left me flummoxed as to the timing of our ongoing demise throughout the white world.

        Such a timed harbinger had its start from the early 90’s having led to Obama’s ‘tipping point’ as you’ve clearly stated. It has become fascinating (and obviously unpleasant) to see our ‘fork in the road’ laid out in front of us.

        As to our dis-empowerment: there is nothing for me to add other than concur with your view – ‘we have a long way to go’. It is an inter-generational project for a recovery that is solely dependent upon each white individual to come together, and form that one last collective.

        Well, I appreciate the comments made in light of Obama’s symbolic effects upon our consciousness; for I do think he represents the hilt of multicultural aggression that is no longer tolerable for America and the West.

    Though I’m a European living north of your country’s border, I keep up a certain interest with your country’s political circus.

    Your article is quite interesting. The hypothetical direction that the Democrats could take (isolationist, protectionist, industrial working class and rural interests…..what almost essentially defined the party before somewhere in the 60’s) puts into question where another group(s) that the party has been catering to since the 19070’s i.e. artsy bohemians and the LGBT, will turn to after the likely leaving of the party due to irreconcilable differences . The collective consensual worldviews of these two groups have pretty much nothing in common with rural and working classes across the racial spectrum.

    Does one really expect the Allen Ginsburgs and the queer eye types to be standing around in respectful cohesion with city workers and farmers as party officials pander to middle american rural (and suburban) values, social conservatism, and religious orthodox beliefs that rural/suburban and working class families share, regardless of their race (well, maybe not the middle american values when it comes to the non-white ones)? The artsy bohemians might stick around for awhile due to their communist tendencies making a nice pair with the opposition to big business among the rural working class, and their self-righteousness about multiculturalism. But eventually the average joe types will get tired of the bohemians’ communism and apathy/dislike for judeo-christianity and the bohemians will get a rude awakening that the different racial groups actually practice their religious beliefs in an orthodox fashion, not just pay New Age lip service to them (the horror!!!)…..the reality that these different racial groups don’t care too much for each other, that its not just un-bohemian white people they don’t have much of a care for, will not feel too good either. The gays will leave almost immediately in mass. They’ll go to the Republican party, due to what I think is their instinctive hedonism for the capitalist/financial world and the republicans eventual move to a liberal/libertarian social policy (won’t need to keep pandering to family values since the voters who believe in that will have gone to the democrats). Don’t know where the bohemians will turn to. I suppose they will withdraw to communes in mass.

    So you’ve got one party representing the masses across the racial spectrum (maybe without the economic protectionism), and other party representing the financial elite made up of mostly jews and degenerate whites. Yeah, I can see that becoming a (probably THE) likely scenario in the near future. It also sounds like the time period before Rome fell. Spengler, Evola, Guenon etc… are further validated.

      Leftist bohemians and unionized factory workers can be brought together through a miraculous political alchemy that only Bill Clinton possesses.

      I would like to correct you: the GOP is far less Jewish per capita than the DNC. It’s just that the small cabal of neocon Jews in the GOP are primarily interested in wielding our military-industrial complex toward their imperial goals abroad, so foreigners tend to see them as the face of the GOP (if not of America altogether).

        Slick Willy Clinton to the rescue.

        Yes, I should have been more specific with the comment about the Republicans, since the majority of Jews in america vote Democrat (can’t remember what the exact number is).

    It’s not easy to deny a sitting president renomination when he wants it . Ted Kennedy couldn’t oust Carter in 1980. In 1968, LBJ withdrew after winning more votes than Eugene McCarthy in the New Hampshire primary. Although McCarthy’s strong showing (42% to Johnson’s 49%) is credited with causing Johnson’s retirement, I think Johnson was already burned-out and just needed an excuse to go.

    Puma,

    The DNC, having erroneously attempted to party like it’s 2042, will be in a fight for its life to reclaim the working class White voters that it still requires to be a viable party. I think Obama will duck before his potential competitors have a chance to swing. If he does try to hold his ground, he’ll risk having his feelings hurt for the first time in his waking life, and the feelings of his Black bloc will be hurt so severely that they’ll virtually disappear from the political landscape for at least an election cycle – if not longer.

    If I had a dollar, I would bet it that the inner circle sets the whole thing up like a coronation, anointing Hillary in exchange for a dignified exit and occupational continuity for the administration’s bureaucratic cronies. If you get your wish and it actually turns into an Obama v. Hillary showdown, it’ll definitely warrant microwaving some popcorn.

    On the “X-President” phenom, I got a review copy of a new [Jan 2011] book by some Brzezinski-approved guy, Parag Khanna, called [I kid you not] “How to Run the World.” Publisher says:

    Khanna reveals how a new “mega-diplomacy” consisting of coalitions among motivated technocrats, influential executives, super-philanthropists, cause-mopolitan activists, and everyday churchgoers can assemble the talent, pool the money, and deploy the resources to make the global economy fairer, rebuild failed states, combat terrorism, promote good governance, deliver food, water, health care, and education to those in need, and prevent environmental collapse.”

    Examples he gives of these “cause-mopolitans” are Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, George Soros, Bono and Angelina Jolie. Just the crowd Obama thinks he’s “qualified” to run with.

      Khanna is one good comedian.

    This notion of “running for ex-President” interests me.

    Years ago SNL had an animated skit about a group of superheroes called The X-Presidents [I guess modeled on X-Men].

    There does seems to be a kind of person who only comes into their own after ‘serving’ as it were. And speaking of one term, success doesn’t seem to matter; Carter was a one-term joke, Clinton a womanizer, but both thrive as ‘statesmen;’ and think of Nixon; run out of town on a rail, he writes big books, travels the world, winds up buried with honors, Clinton reading his eulogy.

    Ford and the Bushes don’t seem to fit, but then they were largely empty suits anyway; Ford finishing out Nixon’s term, Bush, already an ex-president type, serving as Regan’s third term, Bush II taking Jeb’s place; none of them really wanted the job. It seems to appeal to ‘internationalist’ types, Democrats but also someone like Nixon, perhaps the last Liberal.

    This is very insightful. If he runs again, 3rd party candidates will have standing to challenge his status as Natural Born Citizen and to have discovery of his records. They will also be able to challenge his being on the ballot on the basis of Vattel.

    If Obama faces a strong primary challenge in 2012 he’ll lose the election even if he’s renominated. If he’s not renominated his supporters will sit out the election out of spite, assuring Democrats will lose the White House. Many black voters might abandon the political process entirely, which can only do us good.

    Run, Hillary, run!
