Mark Steyn explains Donald Trump’s appeal.

Prescient or what. Steyn made this broadcast over a year before Trump’s election victory.

    Well, the writing was on the wall for anyone to read both in the UK and the USA.

    People in both countries were sick and tired of sclerotic, evasive government doing virtually nothing about anything except neglecting their own.
    There were so many elephants in the PC room, not being noticed, it was increasingly difficult to walk around the piles of shit without contamination.
    In both countries, overwhelming quantities of ravening wogs getting gimmigrant handouts not seemingly available to native citizens.
    Wages depressed by illegals and standards of living decreasing year on year.
    World trade enriching the top 1%, with the peasants at home on zero hour contracts not making ends meet
    Chumocracy rampant..
    Ludicrous hate laws repressing people from expressing their legitimate opinions. etc etc

    Any politician in the USA that had espoused the concerns of the ordinary citizens would have taken this election. None had the balls, they all ascribed to the “I didn’t like to” school of political PC thought! Regrettably the one who did have the balls for it was Trump. Shame on the rest!!
    Equally the referendum in the UK provided exactly the same opportunity for the people to anonymously vote with their feet on exactly the same basic causes.

    So, not surprised at all, so called civilisation is only skin deep, when people’s homelands and way of life are threatened they are going to come out swinging. The politicians ought to be feeling damned lucky they didn’t get the scythes and torches routine, they have a chance to put things right. As an act of self preservation they should do so rather quickly, next time round the population may not be so restrained.

    Always did like Mark Steyn.

    Donald Trump’s demeanour reminds me of one Thomas Hobbes who in 1651 wrote revealingly about life without law and order:

    “Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.”

    Just sayin’.
