Progressive Magazine Mother Jones Does A Fake-News Number On Mercer

Ilana Mercer, Left-Liberalism, Media, Race

Writers Sarah Posner and David Neiwert, of the large progressive magazine Mother Jones, list me and quote me in an article (Sep. 21, 2016) by this title “Meet the Horde of Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and Other Extremist Leaders Endorsing Donald Trump: The Republican nominee for president has not disavowed any of them.

But there is nothing remotely “Neo-Nazi, Klansman-like, extremist,” or “white nationalist” in the Mercer quote excerpted by Mother Jones. And, there is one lie courtesy of Mother Jones’ intrepid fact-checkers. See for yourself:

Endorsement: Trump is “a political Samson that threatens to bring the den of iniquity crashing down on its patrons,” Mercer wrote in her book, published in June 2016.

In her own words: Mercer also wrote in her book that Trump is “a man who won’t grovel to the Powers That Be and who has refused to submit to the precepts of Cultural Marxism, namely the tyranny that sees speech policed for impropriety and individuals stigmatized and isolated for thinking and speaking in a manner disallowed by the politically correct police.”

Where’s the “Neo-Nazi, Klansman-like, extremist” or “white nationalist” elements in this excerpt?

Just War And The Confederate Soldier

Constitution, History, Ilana Mercer, Military, States' Rights, War

Was on The Schilling Show, which is radio out of Charlottesville, to talk about our hero, Robert E. Lee. He and John Randolph of Roanoke compete in my heart.

The charming host, Rob, sprung on me something for which I was unprepared: “What would you tell Mayor Mike Signer, if he were listening and we know he does.” I should have humbly/politely declined, but this came out:

“Go back to Berkeley and Princeton, you carpetbagger.”

A thought on Confederate soldiers as heroes in the mold of any American military hero:

The mantra that brooks no challenging is, “Our Military Men and Women” uber alles. But not all American veterans are created equal. Therefore, are confederate soldiers truly honored by being considered as good as any other American soldier, by being welcomed belatedly and grudgingly into the military pantheon? For the War Against Northern Aggression was a just war. The other wars fought by the US, except for the Revolutionary War, not so much. unjust.

In any event, many of the military veterans I hear or see on TV contradict the values for which Lee stood. Lee fought for the locality, they fight for the Empire.

On the other hand, Confederate soldiers by default are heroes and patriots. Whereas American military veterans currently have performed feats of heroism in saving their buddies; their cause is mostly unjust: unjust wars. For if a soldier is not conscripted yet volunteers to fight the Empire’s unjust wars; is that heroic? If he fights to defend his family, community, town, kin; a soldier or any man is my hero.

But that’s the reactionary libertarian, the reincarnated Southern agrarian, the Articles-of-Confederation devotee speaking.

Donald, Destroyer Of The Administrative State

Donald Trump, Ilana Mercer, The State

President Trump’s goal: The “deconstruction of the administrative state,” said Stephen Bannon at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed” is how my July 2016 book described the man, Donald Trump, and his mission:

The first libertarian book of Trump is The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed.
