Has anyone noticed that Trump-inspired concepts of Make America Great Again and America First concepts have been boiled down by political pundits to Nationalism? In my mind the Trumpian concepts are Nationalistic BUT in the sense of Patriotism.
I use the word “BUT” because if you listen to today’s Dem or any Leftist ideologue, you would hear that “Nationalism” is akin to Nazism. Indeed, a Leftist worth their salt in ideology will point out the word Nazi (actually more accurately “NAZI”) in anglicized form derives from National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The anglicized initials came down to NSDAP derived from the German “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei”. To Americans, Brits and other English-speaking nations (largely descended from Great Britain) the NSDAP simply became the Nazi Party or Nazis.
The point being today’s Leftists see the “National” and conveniently forget the “Socialist” portion of Nazi and equate the term with Right-Wing German racist nationalism. More on this modern Leftist propaganda equating national borders as racism and an enemy to the globalist utopia imagined by Leftist ideologues – in a later post.
For now, I want to assure you that Trumpian Nationalism is more akin to American Patriotism, American Exceptionalism and love nation and founding heritage.
PragerU has the assurance and proper explanation of Nationalism in a five and one-half video spoken by the author of The Virtue of Nationalism - Yoram Hazony.
So readers, I’ve been using a seven year old laptop to fulfill the
old blogging habit. My lovely wife sprang for an upgrade.
I’m a relatively small-time blogger but with a consistently
growing readership despite some token censorship from the
liberal-oriented blog and social platforms.
Still looking to defray Christmas costs.
