Pat Buchanan, as usual, hits the nail on the head. Pat tells readers that Trump’s “popularity is traceable to the fact that he rejects the moral authority of the media, breaks their commandments, and mocks their condemnations. His contempt for the norms of Political Correctness is daily on display.”
Mr. Buchanan explains that the media “have played right into Trump’s hand.” Pat writes that they constantly demand he apologize, then Trump doubles down.
It is becoming increasingly clear that Trump has locked into the firestorm of independent thought sweeping not only America, but also Europe and for that matter Russia. Here at home, strident, deeply rooted right wing organizations like League of the South are resonating with voters. The “League,” by example, extols an American foreign policy that favors neutrality and strictly limited migration, and opposes standing armies and any regulation whatsoever of firearms. The “League” is opposed to fiat currency, personal income taxation, central banking, property taxes and most state regulation of business. The “League” sees its culture as profoundly Christian and pro-life.
Americans are hearing this exact message loud and clear. And Donald Trump is tapping into that wellspring, slapping the face of the media and, along the way, the entrenched, globalization focused, political elite.
