Bill Kristol’s Candidate Says White Working Class Communities “Deserve to Die”

The best candidate Kristol could drum up is a random cuck NRO writer who says white working class communities “deserve to die” and have no one to blame for their struggles but themselves.

From: Breitbart:

According to new reports, The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol wants fellow professional Republican and National Review staff writer, David French, to run an independent presidential campaign. The prospect of a French run has received some support via Twitter from professional Republicans who oppose the candidate selected by the voters. However, French’s prior controversial writings could alienate a core constituency of the American electorate– namely, white working-class voters.

While Donald Trump has called on the GOP to become a “worker’s party”– a development Sen. Jeff Sessions called for two years ago, ironically, in the pages of the National Review— French has defended the idea that white working-class communities “deserve to die.”

Specifically, French wrote a piece in support of Kevin D. Williamson, who had said:

The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.

French described Williamson’s piece as “excellent” and said that Williamson’s words were “fundamentally true and important to say.” French went on to dismiss the struggles white working class Americans endure.

“Citizens of the world’s most prosperous nation, they face challenges — of course — but no true calamities,” French wrote. While French suggests that the decline of America’s middle class and manufacturing power is no true calamity, others could argue that the greater a nation or culture, the more sorrowful it is to witness its decline — much the same way that history would mourn the destruction of the Palace of Versailles more than the totaling of Justin Bieber’s car.

French insists that the devastation of the working-class’ livelihoods is unrelated to failed federal policies such as mass immigration: [I] have seen the challenges of the white working-class first-hand. Simply put, Americans are killing themselves and destroying their families at an alarming rate. No one is making them do it. The economy isn’t putting a bottle in their hand. Immigrants aren’t making them cheat on their wives or snort OxyContin. Obama isn’t walking them into the lawyer’s office to force them to file a bogus disability claim.

French, instead, suggests that the decimation of these communities is due to the laziness of the American worker: Millions of Americans aren’t doing their best. Indeed, they’re barely trying. My church in Kentucky made a determined attempt to reach kids and families that were falling between the cracks, and it was consistently astounding how little effort most parents and their teen children made to improve their lives. If they couldn’t find a job in a few days — or perhaps even as little as a few hours — they’d stop looking. If they got angry at teachers or coaches, they’d drop out of school. If they fought with their wife, they had sex with a neighbor. And always — always — there was a sense of entitlement. And that’s where disability or other government programs kicked in. They were there, beckoning, giving men and women alternatives to gainful employment. You don’t have to do any work (your disability lawyer does all the heavy lifting), you make money, and you get drugs.

Mr. French’s blame-the-victim approach is notable for two reasons. First, it presents a novel view of human sociology in which people can lose their cultural pride, their means of economic survival, their sense of identity, their self-worth, and even suffer direct discrimination with no corresponding fallout. Second, it underscores one of the unique aspects of professional Republicanism. While professional Democrats advocate for the use of government power on behalf of their base, professional Republicans like Mr. French seem to argue that their own base deserves what’s coming and, as penance, should be left defenseless.

When readers responded with outrage to French’s piece, French doubled down in a post entitled “The Great White Working-Class Debate: Just Because I’m ‘Nasty’ Doesn’t Mean I’m Wrong.” In recent decades, these white working class communities — and their inhabitants — have been economically devastated and are quite literally dying off. A study by Princeton economists revealed that white, middle-aged working-class Americans without a college degree are experiencing a rapid rise in morbidity. The report found that the rise in their death rates was tied to, what The New York Times described as the “pessimistic outlook among whites about their financial futures.”

Trump Threatens “Clueless” Obama: “Will Hit Him Just Like I Hit Bill Clinton”

Following several veiled jabs at Trump in the last few days by the president, The Donald came out swinging last night slamming Obama as “a president who doesn’t have a clue.” Trump’s tirade comes, as The Hill reports, after Obama used official White House events to comment on several of Trump’s plans, calling his tax proposals “crazy.” It appears, as expected, that no one is off limits to Trump once they start taking shots at him as the GOP presidential nominee lashed out, if “he’s going to start campaigning… well, that means I’m allowed to hit him just like I hit Bill Clinton, I guess right?”

President Obama has recently taken to quasi-campaigning with veiled jabs at Donald Trump, as The Hill reports,

Obama hit Trump during a PBS town hall that aired Wednesday, referencing Trump’s promise to bring jobs back to the United States while discussing manufacturing.

“He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer,” Obama said.

Obama also went after Trump during a speech Wednesday afternoon at a high school in Indiana in what was billed as an official White House event on the economy.

The audience booed at one of Obama’s veiled references to Trump. “No booing,” Obama said, “We’re voting.” He also blasted the businessman’s tax plan and pledge to roll back Wall Street reform regulations as “crazy.”

And it appears, as The Hill adds, that Trump has had enough…

“This is a president who doesn’t have a clue,” Trump said during a rally in Sacramento, Calif. before threatening to unleash harsher attacks should Obama become more vocal against him.

“He’s going to start campaigning. Well, if he campaigns, that means I’m allowed to hit him just like I hit Bill Clinton, I guess right?” Trump said.

“If he doesn’t, I don’t care. But if he campaigns, and I think he wants to, because he wants to keep this terrible agenda going where everybody is ripping us, where the world is ripping us off.”

Trump has leveled personal attacks at the Clintons, including raising assault allegations against Bill Clinton from the 1990s that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has declined to respond to.
