Pat Buchanan observes that the Establishment is terrified. And rightly so:
What explains the hysteria of the establishment?They should be afraid. From America to New Zealand, they have gradually backed the people of the West into a corner from which there is only one way out. We do not accept their legitimacy. We do not accept their authority, moral or otherwise. They have lost the Mandate of Heaven.
In a word, fear.
The establishment is horrified at the Donald’s defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority.
It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.
Having fixed the future, the establishment finds half of the country looking upon it with the same sullen contempt that our Founding Fathers came to look upon the overlords Parliament sent to rule them.
Establishment panic is traceable to another fear: Its ideology, its political religion, is seen by growing millions as a golden calf, a 20th-century god that has failed.
Soon the hour will be upon us. Given the growing fear of the Establishment, they will probably strike first. And, in doing so, they will spark the very revolution that terrifies them.
Donald Trump is not the savior. Donald Trump is not the movement. Donald Trump is the warning. It makes very little difference if he is elected or not. Because, as Mike Cernovich points out in the bestselling MAGA MINDSET, Trump is merely the symbol of the moment. There will be more to come.
(I think this is exactly right. Trump is just another spot on the continuum that started with the Tea Party and continued with Sarah Palin and moved on to Trump. All of them attacked viciously by the Rhinos and the conservative establishment. There is much more to come. More radical. More vociferous. More confrontational and in your face. You can't put the GOP Humpty Dumpty back together again.
I think the idea of the establishment striking first is right on the money. If Hillary wins she will attempt something that could spark it off. An executive order to seize guns the way they did in Australia for example. That is just the spark that could start the fire. The only way to avoid it is if Trump is elected and stops the slide. The establishment should hope that happens. Because they are really not going to like what happens next)
