Why Hillary vs Trump is really “Mommy vs Daddy”

Gavin McInnesArchive

I know how trite it sounds, but hear me out. Not only is this U.S. election all about "Mommy vs. Daddy," but this dynamic also explains why blacks vote Democrat, why creative people are leftists and why they side with Islam all the time. I just hope it also means Trump will win.

Buffet and Trump, both billionaires, know the System and how to play it. Buffet supports Hillary, the Secretary of the Status quo, so he can continue to play the system. Trump wants to change the sytems because it is gutting the middle class. Buffet wants to continue to accumulate great wealth so he, like the socialist he is, can control the distribution of said wealth. Trump, on the other hand, figures he can, by his economic plan, create jobs so people can experience self sufficiency rather than the beneficience of Buffet and big government.

Michael Mann i have saved many lives by bringing them heat and energy from the pipelines i have built, that is about as valid as your Hillary BS.

Michael Mann first lady is not really a great big accomplishment.

Michael Mann most of those are pathetic and had little input from her. Now list what Justin the idiot has done, you never criticize him of course. I notice you forgot getting navy seals killed by sitting around LMAO!

I really wish everyone would tell Jimmy Duh Silva AKA Michael Mann to just f*ck off and ignore the bitch.

Here’s my prediction, and blatant invitation to be security – raped by every lettered agency out there: there isn’t going to be an election. There might not be any more elections, ever. One of the candidates (at this point, too early to tell for sure which) will be assassinated during the campaign. Obama takes over, in the name of “national security”, and ushers in the new realm of rule by empire. I think it depends on the polls. If Trump looks like he’s going to pull it off, that’s when it will happen. If you hold a gun to my head; I’d predict it’s Hillary’s last campaign, but it could be Trump getting “fired”. Not sure either one would be the favourite to get smoked, but what it comes down to is that the Dems have been in control for a few years now, they REALLY don’t like not being in power, and the current political environment is ripe for this type of permanent power grab. That’s why I think it’s Hillary by a nose. It would give Obama the leverage to sanction the GOP, and seize the prize for life, in the name of domestic stability. It’ll be sold on “think of how peaceful life in the Americas would be if there were no more elections”. The incessant ever-increasing rhetoric aids in this plan, and Trump’s insane ramblings plays right into it also. I admit to being a little bit scared that this is what’s going to happen.

Michael Mann commented -,“You don’t actually think Trump is going to win do you?”

I never make predictions until the ballots are counted – Trump has populist momentum – same as Sanders did. I believe that there enough voters in America who have awoken to the fact the political system has imprisoned them – put them on plantations of left or right which self serving political machines harvest votes when needed at election and ignored the rest of the time – they want candidates unattached to the political machines – they thought Sanders was one but surprise eh.

Trump is not a real republican, I think he sounds like a Kennedy Liberal – he’s independent, unbeholden, nationalist and very anti status quo – GOP oligarchs and Globalists hate him – so the jaded voter picks up on this and figures all the right people hate this guy, he must be OK.

But there is another elephant in the room – Class bigotry. Both GOP and Dem oligarchy really hold little people in contempt – they must have their lives run by us – they never listen to what their own supporters were saying about – say immigration, or Obama care, or the Fed and deficit financing, secure jobs – But Trump did. At least he’s paying lip service to these common concerns and ignoring the elitist flack for doing so.

He is a guy who tapped into mainstream working class concerns – he may be a boor and undiplomatic and narcissistic, but he has popular support – that wins elections.

The alternative is candidate dragging scandal luggage from the days in Arkansas to Benghazi who was under FBI investigation- and who personifies the political elite the mounting populist vote despises – not good optics from a populist perspective.

Frankly I think both these people will be a disaster in one way r another -but at least Trump is talking systemic economic reforms and this is what America needs right now.. Getting elected is the easy part – pulling off the reforms to the satisfaction of the electorate is the hard part;

Michael, now tell us what she’s done that wasn’t totally screwed up, inconsequential, or blatantly partisan. List just got a whole lot shorter. How about a list of the things she screwed up on? Let’s see; there’s Benghazi, and something about a huge security breach caused by her e-mails, and then something about her lying about that, and then something about her getting rid of the evidence, and then something about her lying about that, and then there’s something about getting a child rapist off (what exemplary credit was she earning then, according to you? Was it Director of the Arkansas Legal Aid Clinic, or one of the times she was listed as one of the hundred most influential lawyers in the country? The scumbag she got off probably thought so), and so on, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. I get it: you think the lying, cheating evil snob is better for pres than the ruthless off-the-wall businessman. At least we get what we pay for with the guy. With the girl, who knows? I’ve lost track of her lies. And once again, so glad I’m Canadian!

The supposed ‘pro-life’ Democrats are claiming they oppose Hilary Clinton on her position on abortion.
The Democrat campaign is also claiming Democrats ‘are’ pro-life (I guess they have Tim Kaine to prove that).
Now isn’t that a contradiction?
But who do you think these pro-life Democrats will be voting for?
commented 2016-08-02 22:46:42 -0400
Hey dip shit can you say world war 3.And she is above the law,or she think she is.
You will see it if she wins.So all the shit you stated means nothing if the world goes to war.
You must think the Clinton foundation is just on the up and up.Now who’s the moron.

Starship Troopers by ‎Robert A. Heinlein. In the future proposed in this book you are only eligible to vote if you are a honorably discharged member of the military. It is a remarkably common sense science fiction book, well worth a read for political conservatives.

You don’t actually think Trump is going to win do you?

You claim to be this intelligent person, so I wonder if you are able to concede the obvious – which is Trump cannot win in a general election. It has nothing to do with one prefers – it has to do with simple mathematics and the States that Trump has to win over Hillary. It won’t happen.

«why creative people are leftists»

You’re being a little lose with the term “creative”. There are more kinds of “creativity” than just artistic. For instance, the technology you are using to read this message didn’t exist 20 years ago, meaning it was “created” by people who are, by definition, “creative”. The more accurate assessment is the influence of a third variable: Artistic people tend to be EMOTIONAL people, and EMOTIONAL people tend to be Leftists.

Good one

Good insight and I hope that “daddy” will win the general election…that would set the tone for the western world to follow. Enough of dreamlike utopia!!

Interesting analogy with possibly some basis to it considering the mindset of most millennials I have come across……………

No matter what the underlying psychology is about a Trump win – it will free Alberta’s economy from the Gulag its local and federal climate-fascist governments have constructed. Pipelines south, let the Laurentian elite freeze in the dark.

BTW Gavin, I really Liked your Taki’s column about Dinesh D’Souza’s great documentary – I agree it will prove to be one of the best documentaries ever made – a must see.

Gavin: You are stereotyping women. My husband and I raised six children, but the role of disciplinarian and primary tutor was forced upon me, because my husband did not have the wherewithal to be strict.
All children are now successful adults, but are wont to say to me: “I wasn’t worried about Dad, but you scared the s**t out of me”. Being raised in an old-fashioned family myself, I would have much preferred if my husband had taken on this role, but, alas, was not to be.

Our lethargic, brain-dead, sad, politically correct, safe space, triggered world is losing its grasp of the qualities that great leaders possess. Some arrogance and narcissism is a good thing, never apologize but never draw first blood, and especially never let anyone attack them (or their country) with impunity. Unlike, for example, the apologetic Hussein Obama who, when in Cairo in June 2009, virtually thanked the Muslim world for 9/11.

I wonder if “mommy versus teenager” would be a better phrase.

Donald Trump is enjoying all the popularity of a rebellious teenager, and all the other kids are rallying around him.

Alas, at a certain point the teen realizes he has no real life experience, was given all his “wealth” by his parents, and is actually quite clueless.

Then the kicker, that many of his fair-weather fends will go along with: “the whole thing is rigged anyway!”
