Dave writes two articles per week at Takimag
, which I seldom miss.
Some of my favorite writers there are David Cole, of course, and Conservative pundits Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan.
Unfortunately, Taki's turned off the reader commentaries ─ like most other "Woke" corporate news magazines these days, as well as book distributors like Amazon, all of whom are trying to crack down on Racism and anti-Semitism. This kind of Internet Orwell is most unfortunate because the reader comments are often the most interesting part.
This week Dave has a really interesting two-part article suggesting that Conservatives can Gerrymander themselves out of this bleak electoral paradigm. He never uses that dreaded word, but he does suggest that in Liberal - Blue State California, Beverly Hills is not as "Blue" as you would think because the demographics are people like doctors and lawyers, Orthodox Jews, and so on, who are supposedly "Red," and don't just ape Lib-tard Hollywood entertainment types, such that we've all seen.
Now, I am a bit skeptical. I am not a "Conservative." In my view Conservatism is bound to fail because Conservatives seem to "conserve what is already gone," as the American Nazi Party Commander George Lincoln Rockwell famously said before his 1967 assassination. In the last 55 years I have sometimes wondered if the slain Rockwell was one of the lucky ones.
Modern-day White Nationalist Greg Johnson of the Counter-Currents
blog based in Seattle seems to think that California is unsalvageable, and he supports letting the Lib-tard ideologues of the blighted Golden State secede from the Union, taking their 54 Blue Shït-Lib - Electoral Votes along with them.
actually happened, overnight the electoral situation in the remaining United States would change, giving White Nationalists a chance to take their country back ─ providing that immigration policies enacted in 1965 could be decisively reversed, and the country could then vigilantly preserve and protect its national borders once again.
Based on some of the events in the rest of the country during the "Summer of George Floyd" and the recent judicial lynching of cops and concerned citizens who have interacted with violent Negroes, I don't have a lot of faith in the rest of the country being saved either.
So Dave makes some good points that hint toward the benefits of Gerrymandering, but I am not sure I'm buying his arguments. I think California is a lost cause, and there are critical problems with the rest of the country as well.
Btw, for those who don't know, Gerrymandering
is an early feature of republican democracy as practiced in the United States. Named after Massachusetts Founding Father and 5th Vice President Elbridge Gerry
, it is often spoken as a dirty word. But Gerrymandering means simply that state legislatures have negotiated the boundaries of Congressional electoral districts to favor the demographics conducive to electing members of their own party.
As Chancellor Bismarck once observed, sometimes lawmakers making the sausage is a little crass, and best not viewed by the squeamish, but this is in fact part of the guts of how the legislative sausage is made.
