“Release the Hounds” Alt-Right

If one were to take a pragmatic look at Donald Trump’s ideology of the world around him, we would see that his beliefs mirror that of the character Charles Montgomery ‘Mr. Burns’ in the television series ‘The Simpsons.’  I thought about the time when Mr. Burns said “You know Smithers, I think I’ll donate a million dollars to the local orphanage….. When pigs fly.”   Sure as the day follow night if it didn’t remind me of the Donald’s remark that “I’m really rich”.  I haven’t forgotten when Homer said, “You know, Mr. Burns, you’re the richest guy I know. Way richer than Lenny. ”  And, Mr. Burns, being the egoistic person he is, replies, “Yes, but I’d trade it all for a little more.”  Again, another reminder of Trump’s endless “I am rich” arrogance.  Of course Mr. Burn’s most memorable remark inquiring, “What was I laughing about? Ah yes, that crippled Irishman” was reminiscent of how Trump publically vilified a disabled person.   Mr. Burns said  “Hmm, one dollar for eternal happiness. Mmm… I’d be happier with the dollar.”  The Donald did one better; he is now offering a Special 2016 Election Dollar Bill featuring… himself of course.   Mr. Burn’s “Cheating is the gift man gives himself” is no different from Trump’s duplicitous dealings with contractors and the American public.

Regardless what they choose to call themselves, Tea-Republicans, Trump Republicans, or their newly polished obscured political trademark — Alternative Right, or more commonly know as the ‘Alt-Right.” Their brand is nothing more than a disingenuous and pitiful attempt to describe their surreptitious movement.  Which is nothing more than a conduit for slim dredged from the sewers of Trump World filled with anti-Semites, Birthers, White supremacists, and sewer grade radical principles.   

Those who answer the call of the Dog Whistle do not, and most likely will never know the ideology of the artful Donald’s approach to slay experienced moderates like “Low Energy Jeb Bush and Ohio’s Governor Kasich, as well as ultra-conservative evangelical Republican rivals Lyn’ Ted, Lil’ Marco, and Carly Fiorina.  Even when Trump’s Republican rivals told the truth, which didn’t happen often, Trump mangled the truth and ran roughshod over them.  Causing them to fold like a K-Mart Blue Light Special defective lawn chair.   For example, John Kasich said “But for the 11 million people – come on folks – we all know you can’t pick them up and ship them back across the border.  It’s a silly argument.”    Of course it was a “silly argument” to most Americans.   But devious Donald would have none of that.  Throwing out a chunk of red meat trump crowed, ” “I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, Believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”  They devoured his red meat rant whole without chewing. And, Trump hasn’t looked back since.

Cutting to the chase, the ultra right-wing represented by the Alt-Right, endorsed one of the greatest snake oil selling con man of the 21st Century.  It may surprise many people that I am an admirer of W.F. Buckley brand of conservatism.  I admire his ideals of civility in political discourse, even though I may disagree with his brand of conservatism; which is void of hate, divisiveness, bigotry, and racism as demonstrated by Trump’s rhetoric.  Sadly, Trump’s supporters fail to realize that he is a master of classical rhetoric — what Plato called “the art of winning the soul by discourse.” And yes, while Donald Trump may seem to be a clown or buffoon, he is in fact one of the most effective practitioners of persuasive rhetoric the political world has seen in a long time. If he wins the GOP nomination it will be in large part because of his mastery of rhetoric.”[1]

Trump’s flock continues to heed his rhetoric every day without pause to seek out the validity of his comments.   Why would they want to know the truth?  Because it validates the existence of others in their world to contrasts without guilt or remorse those they dislike, hate, or appear inferior to them.  Daily feeding is necessary to garner funding and dedication of Trump followers. It would be unthinkable for him to go to Mexico and return the same day, and not provide juicy morsels for his flock.  As demonstrated upon his return, he provided generious portions of adulterated red meat to the faithful.  Come November Election Day, ” Release the hounds” Alt-Right [2] will be the cry and hue from master Trump.  Alt-Right Trump supporters will lunge to fulfill their foolish errand. But they will falter and fail. Never realizing that the red meat they were being fed by a carnival barker had no sustenance needed for the progression of humankind, much less beneficial for this nation.  Donald Trump does not practice civility while engaging in political discourse — The necessity for comradely among all Americans.   Being humble or respectful towards others who may disagree with him is not in the vocabulary of a con man who avoids the truth by releasing the hounds of lies.
