If forced to choose between mobocracy and monarchy, the latter is far preferable and benevolent.–ilana mercer
To spout received opinion, Fox News, neoconservative at heart, hired Ben Domenech, the unremarkable husband of the irredeemably awful Meghan McCain.
At the conclusion of a wishy-washy Fox segment about the wanton Meghan Markle, the man who had married into the meritless McCain dynasty declared:
“There is nothing more American than hating the British Crown.”
That works both ways ducky ???

The correct perspective is in my “Mobocracy Vs. Monarchy“:
The Queen of England might be a member of the much-maligned landed aristocracy, but she has acquitted herself as a natural aristocrat would. Elizabeth II has lived a life of dedication and duty, and done so with impeccable class. The Queen has been working quietly (and often thanklessly) for the English people for over half a century. Elizabeth Windsor was 13 when World War II broke out, which is when she gave her first official radio broadcast to console the children who had been evacuated “from Britain to America, Canada and elsewhere.” Still in her teens, Elizabeth joined the military, “where,” according to Wikipedia, “she … trained as a driver, and drove a military truck while she served.”
If forced to choose between the mob (democracy) and the monarchy, the latter is far preferable and benevolent. This thesis is anatomized in Democracy: The God that Failed: The Economics and Politics of Monarchy, Democracy, and Natural Order, by libertarian political philosopher Hans-Hermann Hoppe. In his seminal work, Hoppe provides ample support—historical and analytical—for democracy’s inferiority as compared to monarchy:
‘… democracy has succeeded where monarchy only made a modest beginning: in the ultimate destruction of the natural elites. The fortunes of great families have dissipated, and their tradition of a culture of economic independence, intellectual farsightedness, and moral and spiritual leadership has been lost and forgotten. Rich men still exist today, but more frequently than not they owe their fortune now directly or indirectly to the state.’
“[I]n light of elementary economic theory, the conduct of government and the effects of government policy on civil society can be expected to be systematically different, depending on whether the government apparatus is owned privately or publicly,” explains Hoppe. “From the viewpoint of those who prefer less exploitation over more and who value farsightedness and individual responsibility above shortsightedness and irresponsibility, the historic transition from monarchy to democracy represents not progress but civilizational decline.”
UPDATE (4/9): A relative of the VP, Kamala Harris, white-hating Meena Harris, is another future “View” host. Every bit as banal, privileged and intellectually dispensable as imbecile Meghan McCain.
I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting. I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.
The hate crime in Boulder Massacre was by a Muslim refugee: #AhmadAlAliwiAlissa
Counters Steve Sailer: “According to the New York Times study of all 358 mass shootings in the US in 2015, the mass shooters were black over 70% of the time.”
