*The following was posted on Rad Magnum’s Facebook page in response to the recent terrorist attack in Brussels and Cruz’s comments post-Brussels:
“I’m not a fan of this statement at all by Cruz. This is the fault of Murder-Enablers like Merkel. Trump is on the right side, against a lot of pressure. If the west is inviting enemy troops across the front and inviting them in for lunch so they can kill grandma before tea, what is Trump supposed to do about it?
Here’s the deal. This is not about Leadership, the way that Cruz means. Cruz means engaging in the old political realm – offering military aid, intelligence, moral support.
But what we know is that the old political realm is dead, or at least it’s determined to commit suicide. So if you want to help “the people”, you have to support a new politics and form a new allegiance with new leaders. For example, consider PEGIDA. Merkel would love to say, “listen, America is rejecting Xenophobia by electing Sanders or Hillary or Jeb. The whole civilized world is against PEGIDA.” That rhetoric works to stifle PEGIDA’s recruiting and marginalize them. In contrast, if Trump pulls ahead, PEGIDA can say the opposite – “Look, even America gets it. If they can do it, so can we. We are not alone. We are right.”.
These seem like minor effects, BUT THEY AREN’T. Minority parties need to be able to point to some success or support, in order to recruit. It’s ALL about justifications. This is why you see domino effects, where revolutions in one country spark more in other countries.
Again, like with most issues, this is about recruiting a team and not about policy. Our side, wrapped up WITHIN the system debating policy, doesn’t understand revolutions and wars fought OUTSIDE the system and that determine the very existence of the system.
For example, many conservatives bash both “Hope and Change” and “Make America Great Again” as empty slogans. I hate to tell them but the fate of whole nations have risen and fallen on slogans. Thus they aren’t empty. Are they devoid of bureaucratic policy? Yes. Do they start wars and flip governments, shaping the world? Oh, yes, that. Give me Liberty or Give me Death. Liberté, égalité, fraternité. How many Cambodians died because of “Make Love not War”.
Bucking PC, which Trump does, is nothing more than “Speaking Truth to Power”. That’s a first step in recruiting for any war. Thus Trump does more to embolden the Invasion Resistance than any candidate. Trump IS Leading. By Inspiring replacement forces.
What does Cruz do? Will he inspire? Cause he can’t really DO much as president. He can’t invade Europe. What can he do? He has to recruit people on the ground towards a new allegiance that resists. Will he? Can he? Trump does.”
