While Donald Trump has called on the GOP to become a workers party a development Sen. Jeff Sessions called for two years ago, ironically, in the pages of the National Review French has defended the idea that white working-class communities deserve to die.
Specifically, French wrote a piece in support of Kevin D. Williamson, who had said:
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trumps speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isnt analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.
French insists that the devastation of the working-class livelihoods is unrelated to failed federal policies such as mass immigration:
[I] have seen the challenges of the white working-class first-hand. Simply put, Americans are killing themselves and destroying their families at an alarming rate. No one is making them do it. The economy isnt putting a bottle in their hand. Immigrants arent making them cheat on their wives or snort OxyContin. Obama isnt walking them into the lawyers office to force them to file a bogus disability claim.
When readers responded with outrage to Frenchs piece, French doubled down in a post entitled The Great White Working-Class Debate: Just Because Im Nasty Doesnt Mean Im Wrong.

China needs coal like Americans need WiFi.
Only thing keeping our coal from being exported is liberal voters blockading the exports by demanding no coal trains driving through their congressional districts.
Where was I complaining about Trump’s money?
We all know what Soros and Rush have done.
Are you saying there’s no better way to demonstrate how Trump helped the conservative cause *prior* to his running other than say he’s created jobs? That is hard to believe.
Sure they are, but only jack jawed homoes like French and his repulsive anti-white Minions at NR characterize the millions of blue collar workers (majority Trump supporters) as drug addicted homeless people.
I know that appeals to the retarded Cruzers because they worship Chinese manufacturing, but it just isn't true in the real world.
“Donald Trumps speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isnt analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.”
Cattle-cars would be more efficient.
You literally have no clue what you're talking about, as you are just repeating the sweeping assertions and prejudices of the TPP-traitors at National Review.
Immigration and trade have demolished this country's manufacturing, which is what NR was writing about just a few years ago before they realized a candidate would stand up to actually champion those goals. Now limitless immigration and free trade aren't at fault for destroying communities and driving thousands of people into extreme poverty. Nope nope nope. Somehow these communities were sick from the start, unable to compete with China, and whoever doesn't relocate to work customer service in New York City are trashy drug addicts.
This is why French and the Cruzers are a doomed breed. Their rhetoric is so stupid and ugly it just has no long term future.
But thank God! Cruzers/National Review folks as a community need to disappear. They should move to other countries, like France or England, where they can get work. Here in the US they will soon be unemployed.
Go away. Your bitterness about your religious phony and fraud Cruz has coloured your perceptions. I’ve no desire to spoon feed a sore loser with further commentary.
“What is destroying the West today, is the deliberate downplaying of the importance of different biological, historical and personality traits, in an effort to promote the fantasy that humans are interchangeable—a direct attack on the importance of the vast variations in human cultures & values”
A point worth repeating.
David French and his pals Kevin Williamson and Bill Kristol and the rest of that National Review crowd are little more than economic determinists, like a right-wing version of Marxists. Probably no surprise since neoconservatism has its roots in a crew of Leon Trotsky supporters.
For this crowd people and their culture and longstanding communities are cogs in the economy and nothing more. It’s a crass and shallow devaluation of American life that serves the interests of global corporations and hasn’t got damned thing to do with America.
Yep. She’s a disingenuous phony pretending to be posting without an agenda. It’s not fooling anyone.
It’s a simple question, though not easy to answer. I understand why you can’t.
Hence their attitude that says "if a Mexican or Central American illegal can do farm or construction work at 1/5 the cost of American farm and construction worker, it's time to replace all American workers with Mexican and Central American illegals," with absolutely no regard for the civic, social and cultural problems importing millions of people from Third World slums entails.

Yep. Americans are disposable. And easily replaced by compliant 3rd worlders.
That’s been the philosophy of both the Bush Republicans and Obama Democrats.
What you pin point clearly illustrates why it is suicide to let the Left enforce a “politically correct” mandate that prevents people openly expressing their former sense of duty to their fellow countrymen. We will either resume values that once were accepted as idiomatic attributes of “fellow countrymen,” or we are going to lose everything won by better men, in a braver, more honorable era.
The Republican Party's leadership became worthless as soon as it embraced multiculturalism and political correctness. The Bush clan's affinity for Mexicans over Americans is just the most visible sign of this disease. Other examples include the GOP's obsession with affirmative action tokenism: showboating otherwise less than stellar Republican "minorities" to prove that they too know how to play the pander game.
“What you pin point clearly illustrates why it is suicide to let the Left enforce a politically correct mandate that prevents people openly expressing their former sense of duty to their fellow countrymen. “
and of course it’s not just the Left, it’s also their comrades in the corporate world who see themselves as Citizens of the World and act as enforcers for the Left’s revolution against Main Street America.
Absolutely. The hard Left not only gets no resistance from the GOPe, they have a staunch ally there.
Mitt Romney seemed to think that the only reason he didn’t win in 2012 was that he didn’t pander hard enough to Hispanics. No, it couldn’t possibly be due to the fact that his Liberalism Lite failed to get out the vote among people who otherwise would have supported him. According to Romney and the GOP establishment, the only thing he did wrong was that he didn’t act more like a Democrat and engage in more of a multicultural PC lovefest.
I cannot conceive of anything more utterly contemptible--nor more utterly revealing as to where the focus of the proponents has devolved. It is very clear what will remain of human culture, if the globalist folly is triumphant.

We become the insects they regard us as being. Human ants. Worker bees.
French is simply a White ethnomasochist..
