People are not morons, and they are not as dumb as you think. We call those Trump supporters dumb, but they are one of the smartest Republican electorates in a long time. Why? Because they are waking up to the fact that they have been lied to by the Republican Party for decades now into voting for their elite internationalist project which has devastated the White working class.
You can only screw people so long before they finally wake up and figure out that they are getting screwed. There are no permanent suckers, despite what the aristocrats think. When you screw people over, no matter which fancy, masked, devious or convoluted magical methods you use to do it and no matter how hard you work to blind the people to what you are doing to them, it’s only going to last so long. The aristocrats would of course like to figure out a way to screw people over forever without the suckers ever waking up and figuring out they are being taken, but they haven’t figured that one out yet, and maybe there is no way to pull it off.
Sooner or later, the people you screw, no matter how dumb you think they are and no matter how hard you brainwash them, are going to figure that you are screwing them over. Then they will rebel against their former persecutors.
People like to huff and puff about the ugliness of populism, but that’s just the way it goes. Populist, slave, serf, Communist, socialist, etc. rebellions are rarely pretty. If you study populist revolts all down through history, you will be stunned by how bloody they were. Many times they resulted in the genocide or near-genocide of the ruling classes. We can wring our hands about this forever, but that’s just the way it goes. It’s nearly a Law of History: Populist rebellions are nasty and often bloody affairs. The aristocrats reap what they sow. No sympathy.
