Donald Trump’s nomination and his electrifying speech highlighted the major rift in the United States, the one raging between actual ethnic Americans who are embattled, angry, and cynical against the recent immigrants and global cosmopolitans who genuinely favor the direction America’s been going in. For the latter, the America before Ellis Island was a dark and terrifying hellscape of slavery, oppression, nativism, and, well, basically…fucking white males! Until Donald Trump came along, we “Amerikaners” were stuck with candidates who spoke in the language, imagery, and tone of the usurpers.
This seismic shift in American politics, of our people finally achieving a voice, overshadows a yuuuge game changer that also happened last night. The Christian conservative movement which had been a keystone of Republican politics for generations was laid to rest. Its time of death was actually the previous night, when its ill-fated champion Ted Cruz was viciously booed out of the room. But Trump’s speech which rejected the fundie language and rhetoric entirely in favor of altright language and rhetoric, followed by his blunt admission that he did not deserve the Christian conservative support he overwhelmingly received, lowered the casket into the ground and piled the dirt into the grave.
Several pundits noted shortly after Trump’s speech was leaked hours before the airing, that his speech was essentially Pat Buchanan without the religious signaling. Those who’ve been following Pat in the past several years will note that even Pat’s no longer really bothering with the religious signaling anymore. This is a profound victory for nationalism, because Christian globalism has been the single greatest threat to the West’s survival for decades. America’s silent majority of Christian family men have resoundingly rejected the politics of cuckoldry and concession championed by these Elders of Christian Zionism.
It may seem confusing at first glance that a Christian Nationalist would be cheering the defeat of Christianity in American politics by a womanizing champion of faggotry who doesn’t even know the difference between the communion plate and the collection plate. It’s not confusing at all for those who believe I’m not really a Christian. It’s all the more proof that I’m a sinister bigot running an elaborate angle who worships his race first and last. The premise, cherished by both the anti-Christian and pro-Christian right alike, is that love and stewardship of one’s extended family of ethnic kinsmen is somehow contrary to Christian dogma.
American Christianity’s leadership, including in the Catholic and Orthodox denominations which have absolutely no excuse, has fully endorsed Jewish hegemony in our domestic and foreign affairs at the direct and bloody expense of its flock. American Christianity’s leadership has grown increasingly senile, iteratively going into hysterics about rather marginal issues like gay marriage and chicks with dicks while betraying their parishioners on the issues that truly matter in their daily lives. I’m as disgusted by the mainstreaming of the degenerate and diseased underworld of traps and trannies, but they’re not a proximate threat to the livelihood, safety, and future of Christian families.
It doesn’t matter anyway. We’ve seen this song and dance before, and the timeline’s collapsing. Embracing trannies will become a keystone Christian value after the cathartic tantrum has worked itself out.
As secular as he may be, Trump’s patriarchal and stewardly love of the American people is more authentically Christian than the pharisaical betrayals and machinations of American Christianity’s soi distant “leaders.” Call him an egomaniac, but Trump’s egomaniacal belief that he’s the man to lead America to order and safety from the lobbyist and globalist wolves encircling them strikes at the rudiments of Christ’s calling of selfless stewardship in our leaders. If Trump doesn’t actually love American citizens, it’s the single greatest act of showmanship in the history of American politics.
Ted Cruz painted by the numbers, pressing the various “social issue” panic buttons to trigger the Christian Right’s support like Pavlov’s salivating dogs, repackaging what his donors wanted in a language tailored for the voters. Ever the Machiavellian schemer, Cruz gathered himself and his family away from the jeering mob as quickly as possible with the belief that he had perfectly positioned himself to be the future champion of the fundamentalist right in the wake of Trump’s inevitable doom.
But there is no future for the fundamentalist right.
Even if Trump does prove to be the disaster for America that he prays for, the White American people won’t come crawling back to Cruz and his discredited and exhausted televangelist shtick. A new generation of politics and politicians is rising to manifest the new landscape surfaced by Trump’s triumphantly civic nationalist campaign. The fundie routine of frightening Christian families into rallying to them is bankrupt because they’ve been fleeced and slaughtered every single time they sought the protection of these “Christian values” candidates.
One authentic “Christian value” is stewardship, a Christian value Americans haven’t seen in a professing Christian since Pat Buchanan’s campaigns. Much has happened since then, every last bit of it confirming the centrality of his message of stewardship and discrediting the huckster pandering come from the cosmopolitan cuckservative Christian clergy and leaders their tithes and votes have been going to for their entire lives.
I won’t play the tiresome game of accusing those who disagree with my politics of not being “true Christians.” “Christianity” doesn’t actually mean anything anymore. I’m not a “true Christian” because I’m not being charitable to Islam’s economic migrants and ISIS radicals. I’m not a “true Christian” because I reject the globalist demand that my charity pass over my neighbor and land in the outstretched hand of a sullen stranger a world away. I’m not a “true Christian” because I value and wish to preserve my extended family’s ethnic and racial heritage.
America’s clearly done with all of that sanctimonious bullshit. And “Christianity” will remain in the wilderness of American politics until it can demonstrate that it’s not hostile to the families and communities it depends on for tithes and votes. The ascent of a man lacking in Christian bonafides as a leader of America’s Christians isn’t a setback for America’s Christians. It’s a step forward, out of Ted Cruz’s cloying grasp and into those of an authentic and loving steward. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time in our history that we Christians found their political salvation in a man who’s only nominally Christian.
