“On a personal note: POTUS is why I became an American Woman. I naturalized because of Donald J. Trump.

I thought that were I to post a short, heartfelt video, you’d be more forgiving of my running election interference for the Russians. (FakeNews phonies: I’m being highly cynical. In other words, I’m joking, you dour dummies.)

Naturally, I had always been down with the founding documents and the Founding Fathers. But because of Uncle Sam’s depredation and unjust wars, I wasn’t feeling it.

Until … Trump.   https://www.ilanamercer.com/the-trump-revolution/

If I were I black commentator, I have no doubt that this bit of information, divulged first here, would have generated greater interest in our conservative circles.

In any case, and very plainly, I urge you to consider my support for POTUS, in the context of my capacity as a longtime writer against war and against the state and for ordered liberty – a writer who also wrote a 2011 book about the demise of South Africa, due to forces not dissimilar to those undermining America.

I anatomized that destruction of my homeland South Africa in “Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa,” so I know that this election is the tipping point for America. Those of us who lost a homeland recognize it. …”

UPDATE I (11/3): Waiting.

UPDATE II (11/4): The wait is turning sad.
Thanks to kind readers, who felt what I felt—yet still took the time to kindly and generously make me feel welcome …  

Dear Ilana,

I am not normally one to send “fan letters” and fawn all over people,
so I consider this quick note just an affirmation of your writing. I
have been a regular reader of yours for a few years now. I enjoy and
look forward to your insights, your intelligent discourse, and your
humor. All attributes that are sorely lacking on a grand scale in so
much of what is dumped out there as news, or truth, or thought.

Two points: First, your use of language is thrilling and
thought-provoking in this day and age of click-bait and “right  thinking”. Thank you!

Second, I want to congratulate you for becoming a naturalized
American citizen, and welcome you. I see that as a positive action
motivated by optimism and healthy pride.  And even though being a US
citizen offers so many possibilities and opportunities, I believe
what you bring to the table is of greater value.

With respect, and my regards,

Kevin H.

    Congratulations on becoming a U.S. citizen. I have followed your writings for a few years now and appreciate your perspective. I also bought your book, Into the Canibal’s Pot.
    My mother came to this country in 1947 with her parents when she was 17. My grandparents were around 37. None of them spoke english. My mom and her mother became domestics to earn money and learned to speak English studying the Wards catalog while doing their chores.
    I remember my mother studying her book on U.S. History and getting her citizenship papers in 1963 when I was 13. She was so proud. Both of my grandparents got theirs, too. They were all proud to be Americans.
    I hope this country endeavors to deserve you. For myself, I am losing my faith in the America we are starting to see.

    Thank You, Gail, for sharing. I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of the welcome, and also by the appreciation shown me, for what I bring to America. Americans are generous and kind to a fault. My naturalization was a while ago, shorty after Trump was elected. But I have only now spoken about Trump having been the reason. (My husband was skeptical, but went along .)

    Ilana, my friend, it may do you no good, but I take some comfort in knowing that you took a chance on our country, and that you are in the same boat with the rest of us, in these dark days (currently 11/6). I don’t blame you a bit, to the extent you held off (Dubya? Barry?). I’d be pretty dubious, living in a country with people who elected that pair. Trump gave us all hope that there was some of that Jeffersonian resolve left, to fight back against tyrants. Let’s hope it will manifest itself even more in the coming days.

    I’m grateful too that you came to America when you did (2001?), so that you could get a lay of the land, and maybe even gain a certain respect and even love for the place. At least enough that when, by 2011, you could and would frame your magisterial ITCP as a warning for America. That was early enough that it could and maybe did make a little difference. You no doubt know what it means to do your best and have your best arguments fall on deaf ears, but at least you’re on record. I’m at least grateful to have benefited from your wise counsel.
