But, it is now February 1st. Let's see how the coming weeks go in the primaries, eh? It may reveal that the would-be leaders of the Tenth Crusade have been unceremoniously demoted.Today, I see Jeffrey S is writing an article defending the infamous National Review piece which contained this line:
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.Gosh, Jeffrey. I can't see why anyone was incensed at this fine man's helpful advice and fair-minded analysis of the situation! Clearly he just has their best interests at heart, which isn't easy when you're dealing with a pack of racist moronic scumbags.
I'll point out more of what's wrong with Jeffrey S's argument later. But for, I just want to note this.
Jeffrey - and most of What's Wrong With the World - is defending the idea of whole communities being replaced, even destroyed, in the name of economic progress. The world marches on, and if the world decides that it shall be much more efficient without you - and with someone else - well, tough. Go learn a new trade or something, because the world has spoken.
To a degree, that's true. Which is why it's s'damn funny, in retrospect, to realize that WWWtW - indeed, 'Christian leadership' in the US in general - is being replaced and supplanted by others. Like Vox Day. And Dalrock. And, to a degree - and this one is hilarious - Donald freaking Trump.
Sorry, ladies and gentlemen, but that's progress for you. You may want to contact U-Haul.
