For years the establishment’s strategy had gotten down to Total Silence. On Youtube you will see reporters talking about the last time they allowed anyone they called racist to appear.
Now the Knoxville Sentinel devoted its entire report on the convention to David Duke, complete with a close up on his face. Suddenly Jared Taylor is back on national TV.
The original Knoxville article had a lot about Horus and even a squib about me. That was removed and the whole thing was about how the old times were threatening to return in the form of DD.
I’ve been here before.
When Bill Rusher, one of the insiders’ insiders in conservative politics and original publisher of National Review became an open ally of mine in 1974, the national media began to notice the “extreme right” of Reagan’s troopers. And by 1976 the conservatives came within a couple of votes of nominating Reagan over the sitting Republican president, Gerald Ford.
For four years we blasted the old Republican strategy which had kept Congress in Democratic hands for a generation. Buckley became a media hero for fighting us every inch of the way.
To make a long story short, in 1980, when our combination with the newly christened Reagan Democrats, known until Election Day as Wallace Democrats, smashed Carter and won the Senate for the first time in over thirty years, the Designated Conservatives’ reaction was exactly what you would expect.
One picture in NR showed Rusher at a victory dinner, and the line under it was, “You see, Bill, the Republican Party isn’t dead after all.”
If you are waiting on Jared, or even DAVID, to give us any credit, do NOT hold your breath. One of Jared’s guys is obsessively, and not too intelligently, making a hobby of attacking the Mantra.
Reagan Democrats were at media center stage at the same time a huge number of old loser Republicans were declaring the coalition pushed by Rusher and me, and FINALLY endorsed by Reagan, to be a myth.
But what is more important is that we few are having a terrific impact. Other pro-whites will spend a LOT more time insisting that is not true than we could ever spend doing OUR job.
Repeat: I’ve been here before.
