I’ve debated for quit some time whether or not to write this post. I’ve even kept some of it a mystery to even my close friends because I hadn’t really read and studied, nor did I even really ask my self: What is the Alr-Right. I will admit that I never liked the Alt-Right movement, but it was more of an inclination not filled with any factual information. The Alt-Right by definition and in summed up fashion is a movement that gives the conservative an “Alternative Right” platform as opposed to the “Mainstream Right” or “Mainstream Conservative”. Basically I’m not even sure how to organize and explain because I do agree with some of what they believe but as a general whole I do not like the general aspect of what Alt-Right originated from and in the end has become.
I want to remind you that we had an Alt-Right option all along. We had Ted Cruz, we had the strong conservatives, we had someone who was against the “evil” republicans. I lump Cruz in there only because they (the Alt-Right or AR) movement does. The people they describe as a whole as evil conservatives is not even who Cruz was or is, just like their leader Trump, the AR crowd has managed to take an opinion (very off base opinion at that) and attempt to turn it into a fact. Let us not forget the Tea Party, the original alternative to the actual evil republicans. It’s assanine to me that Cruz made it into the evil category because of his diligence towards the tea party beliefs. So basically in starting I’ll assert that anything I’m saying is in comparison to the tea party verses the AR.
Limiting immigration. Nothing is more anticonservative or antiamerican than saying we need to limit immigration. Let me rephrase. Nothing is more anti-right than saying we should limit legal immigration. Legal immigration is the backbone for diversity and the building block of this great nation. The left, not the right is one of the leading reasons our immigration policy got shafted in the first place. If we taught in our schools the history of why we have immigration laws, the youth who want open boarders would see how antiamerican illegal immigration is. If America is so great and we need to make it great again, teach why you should be proud to be an American. The AR believes in shutting immigration down all together for “national security”. We already had a massive vetting process, it was and still is the 7 years you need to be a legal alien before you can become a citizen. We didn’t let known terrorists or people with terrorism in their general vicinity become legal aliens, many times apprehending them and deporting them back if the did make it here illegally. I do, as did many tea party patriots believe we needed better border control, the tea perry already suggested we build the wall at the Mexican border. Guess what the AR crowd claimed back then, the wall wasn’t important. Now no, I know AR wasn’t around then, but the people who aren’t racist and in the AR are the very people who are the front runners there in. So building the wall and border security, agreed we need it…but stopping legal immigration?
I’m really only making 3 points here I think but the second. The free market. Many trump supporters are for the free market. Blindly not realizing that trump is an oxymoron (emphasis on the latter half) because he is calling for American workers, while his company is massively ran by green card holders. The free market was, is and will be the building blocks for America. The free market, or capitalism is America economically. Do I blame a businessman for hiring an immigrant at a lower wage to save the cost? No. Which is ultimately a failure to the last paragraph. Secure legal immigration and you’ll fix this problem. AR, like a bunch of butt hurt pansies don’t the the free market is valid. Wait, what? AR believes it’s more important to secure the Western Culture that save the free market. Yes, Palm to forehead. The western culture was built by the free market, how can you dismantle the very thing that created the other thing you’re trying to save? The tea party had a better solution, free the market up again. When you free it up, mom and pop places can reduce prices on their goods and better profit in the end. But many will say this isn’t Donald Trumps mentality. True you are, if you believe he’s telling the truth. This contradiction with trump and the AR was almost the main reason I’m against them, except one other small factor.
Until….Breibart defined what the AR stands for with in multiculturalism. The western culture in laymens terms is a culture built on many cultures, aka multiculturalism. America is built on multiculturalism. Think about it, Anglo-Americans, African Americans, Chineese Americans, Mexican Americans…ect. We all make up the parts of America. We are a multicultural society, and it’s beautiful. It’s America. I do not disagree it’s part of what makes America great but a culture is something that is ever changing. Look at the southern culture of today verse the southern culture of the 1950s. The African American culture of the 1980s verse the African American culture of today, it different. The individual is who defines the culture, wait…what? The individuals of the culture are who keep the cultural traditions alive or let them go dead. Some of our cultures mesh together to form new or “improved” cultures. Its multiculturalism at its finest. It’s being a true American. Ask my fiancé though…she will tell you I’m a strong believer in preserving some of the various cultures because of the historical significance. Breibart defined the ARs stance on this in a way that I must say…is racist against all races, white, black, Asian, any of them. They said “seperation is necessary for distinctiveness”. Stop. I can’t even type what I’m feeling because of my outrage. Seperation? Rewind, hitler said seperation was necessary to preserve multiculturalism with in Germany, before he escorted the Jews into the gas chambers. The racist groups said separate but equal, and now so is the AR.
On this last point alone, I am Calling out trump as a racist. He proudly claims to be AR, in spite of things like this. If you think seperation to preserve culture is the best way than you’re racist. This mentality goes back to the days of the Native Americans. AR claims that we should have intermingled into the Native American culture. They believe we should have staid separate. Maybe you agree but it wasn’t the mesh that caused the rift, it was the lack of respect for that culture that did.
In closing. Trump is a proud AR. When he loses, a third party will erupt the scene. I think they’ll be called the Alternatives haha but hopefully not. These three points, define my reasons for not voting trump and not voting for the AR. American structure, American free market, and American multiculturalism.
