While the election of Michael Steele (pictured at left) as the new national chairman of the Republican has brought infantile gurgles of delight from the elite wankers who participated in the election (although a sizable chunk remain skeptical), it has attracted criticism from both the left and the right. Many on the left believe the Republicans are fronting their own lesser "Magic Negro" as a mirror opposite of the greater "Magic Negro" in the White House. They consider him the Republican version of Barack Obama.
However, criticism has also surfaced from the paleoconservative right. Many posters on Free Republic are skeptical of Steele's conservative credentials. Ditto for some of the cons on the Hannity Forums. The racially-populist paleoconservative Council of Conservative Citizens, falsely smeared by the SPLC as being "white supremacist", observes that Steele is very pro-affirmative action, not only reaffirming his commitment to it in 2006, but also advocating its expansion. Steele has indicated he believes in more Federal handouts. In addition, Steele is a gun-grabber who strongly supported the Clinton gun ban, claiming that “Society should draw lines” on what guns people can and can not own.
But the loudest cannonade of criticism has thundered from the racialist right. Former Louisiana State Representative Dr. David Duke, now considered the premier spokesman for the white nationalist community, fired back with a powerful salvo which cuts directly to the chase. In this post on his website, Dr. Duke states that when a reporter for the Washington Post interviewed him on the appointment, this is how he responded:
"I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base. As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, 'To Hell With the Republican Party!' And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!
I think the insanity of nominating “Mr. Amnesty” John McCain and now this Black racist — will lead to insurgency in the Republican ranks, and a lot of dissidents getting elected in Republican Party primaries around the country. This will result over the next four years a real move by millions of Republicans to take the party back to the populist issues that are not only right but can win for the Republican Party. We must end affirmative action, protect our gun rights and all our constitutional rights, have a moratorium on immigration, we must have protectionism, yes I said protect American businesses and their workers from NAFTA and GATT and the lie of free trade, and we must have America First, not foreign interventionism. Our boys should be home protecting the American borders and not being murdered on the borders of Iraq or Afghanistan. The time as come for Republican Party to stand up to Obama and defend American heritage, rights, and freedom!" [Ed. Note: This doesn't sound too much different than Jason Chaffetz' platform. I guess Dr. Duke isn't quite the "evil white supremacist" that the ADL and the SPLC makes him out to be, is he?]
Another white nationalist pundit, James Buchanan, posted a similar analysis on WhiteCivilRights. Dr. Duke's commentary spawned an avalanche of discussion on Stormfront, where Dr. Duke is prominent. Three separate Stormfront threads are worthy of highlighting:
-- David Duke tells Wash Post after Obama Jr. is made Chairman: "To Hell with the Republican Party!
-- Breaking News: GOP elected Black man Michael Steele as Chairmen of RNC
-- White Republican men have no guts left
The threat to "take 90 percent of Republicans with him", albeit a bit hyperbolic, is no idle threat. As many white Americans realized that neither Barack Obama nor John McCain represented white interests, as both candidates endlessly promoted forced diversity and pandered to non-whites and homosexuals, they began to turn to the white nationalist community for answers and leadership. This trend accelerated exponentially after the election of Obama, when Stormfront was deluged with six times their normal traffic and were temporarily knocked off line as a result.
To turn the Republican Party to someone like Michael Steele is not only grossly transparent in the racial sense, but is akin to changing captains on the Titanic. The only reason the Republicans didn't get buried a la Barry Goldwater in 1964 is because of rah-rah sis-boom-bah cheerleader Sarah Palin carrying the Presidential ticket on her back. McCain campaigned as if he had one foot in the grave the whole time. The strategy to make the Republican Party a big tent merely transforms Republicans into right-wing Democrats, and it will fail abysmally because Democrats actually make better Democrats, and so voters will simply decide to vote for real Democrats.
To recapture dominance, the Republican party must become a conservative party, and stand up to non-white race hustlers. In a post on Politico on January 29th, Utah's Third District Congressman Jason Chaffetz called for a return to conservative roots, stating, "The Republican Party should be the party of principle, not of political expediency. We should stand tall for our core principles of fiscal discipline, limited government, accountability, and a strong national defense. Over the years we have strayed from these principles and the consequences have been devastating, both to the economy and to the party. Ironically, these are the principles a majority of Americans want their political party to stand for. Yet, we let them down". And Chaffetz' political credentials are unimpeachable; in the Republican primary, Chaffetz thoroughly spanked six-term Congressman Chris Cannon and sent him skulking back to Mapleton with his tail between his legs. He followed that success up with an easy victory over blue-dog Democrat Bennion Spencer in November.
And when District 10 Senator Chris Buttars (R-West Jordan) was targeted for a witch-hunt by local NAACP dominatrix Jeanetta Williams after an inopportune "black baby" remark last February, Buttars refused to grovel to them. He continued to stand tall for those traditional American cultural values which catapulted this country to unprecedented power and prosperity. While barely surviving a convention challenge by Gary Armstrong, he did prevail over blue-dog Democrat John Rendell in November. The common denominators between Jason Chaffetz and Chris Buttars - principle and philosophy. Both are unflinching defenders of conservatism, and both can and are willing to take heat.
Dr. David Duke is the author of two books, "My Awakening" and "Jewish Supremacism". I recommend both of them; Dr. Duke is one of the few intellects who can write to the level of Joe and Jane Sixpack. He doesn't put you to sleep like many intellectuals do.
