Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
Richard Spencer has frustrated some in the Alt-Right by coming out in favor of socialized medicine. “What Trump partisans call ‘Ryancare’ or ‘Obamacare 2.0’ – but which everyone else calls ‘Trumpcare’ – will increase costs on Trump’s core constituency of White working-class voters, as even Breitbart points out,” he writes at AltRight.com. The legislation, Spencer chastises, “is exactly the kind of Conservatism, Inc. idiocy we’ve seen year in, year out, where the most loyal constituents of the American Right are given the shaft, while those who despise Republican voters are rewarded.” Spencer continues:
If there are two things – two root concepts – that define the Alt Right, they are identity and the red pill, that is, the concept of race and belonging and the ethic of seeing through the pretty lies of our time.
Identity means that we are part of a family, and that we have responsibilities to our people. Unlike Paul Ryan and Rich Lowry, who masturbated to Atlas Shrugged in their college dorms and have no loyalty to their race, Donald Trump is a nationalist. He is a man whose miraculous candidacy was based on promising his lower- and middle-class supporters that he would be their champion – that he understands the system and will make it work form them. If Trump actually believes his own words – and if he recognizes the reality that conservatives like Ryan never liked him, never really supported him, and don’t have his back – then why is he adopting their policies? Why not “rig the system” on his people’s behalf?
Taking the red pill on healthcare also means recognizing that the system was hardly a free-market paradise before Obama: prices were always set through Medicare. Moreover, Obamacare itself wasn’t really “socialism” at all: it was the fake socialism of an insurance scheme. (And let’s not forget that Obamacare’s “individual mandate” ultimately originated in the conservative movement of the late ‘80s.) […]
And we can’t ignore the politics of this. If Trumpcare passes, leftists can credibly claim that Trump has betrayed his populist vision. […]
And it is time for the Alt-Right to push for a “public option” – the single-payer system that Obama’s [administration] didn’t have the balls to implement.
Yes, of course, we don’t live in Sweden circa 1960; and a single-payer system would be mired by the contradictions of multiculturalism and open borders—but so is the system we have now. We are past the point of trying to impose a rational policy in what is already an irrational situation.
And in any given environment, we have to consider what policy option or political choice will further the strategic objective of moving toward racial consciousness. Universal healthcare accomplishes this in several ways.
Firstly – and most importantly, politically – we must accept that healthcare is an issue we cannot rationally address until we have a European nation. The best we can do is support the most plausible solution that would serve our constituency. The system we have now is essentially the worst of both the free market and socialist options, as the government tries to manipulate prices in order to preserve a nominally “capitalist” system. By doing this, it destroys the pricing mechanism, which is the one critical advantage capitalism has. The result is a bureaucratic nightmare. Universal healthcare is less confusing and nonsensical (and probably cheaper) than what White people have to deal with now.
Secondly, we underestimate the rise of neo-social democracy at our peril. Even as the “Bolivarian Revolution” in Venezuela descends into chaos, socialism is growing more popular in the United States, and easily the most beloved politician is Bernie Sanders.
Matt Forney, however, counters that many of Trump’s supporters voted for him precisely to overturn Obamacare and that any embrace of a socialism that would disproportionately benefit non-whites would only outrage and betray the voters who put him into office. “The reason why white taxpayers are not enthused about universal healthcare and all these other things is because they know their money is going to be disproportionately going to blacks and they don’t want to be funding people who hate them. They don’t want to be funding people who are antagonistic to them, who are net drains on society.”
