One of the selling points of liberal democracy is it is supposed to create a marketplace of ideas, where the proponents debate their proposals. Politicians get grilled by an adversarial media on their positions. Like the market for goods and services, the marketplace of politics is supposed to weed out the crackpots and zealots, so the people can choose between sane options. In practice, there is no marketplace of anything in liberal democracy, just approved positions.
This Breitbart story is a good example. It is an interview with Senator Marco Rubio, who has been assigned the job of selling an anti-populist message as Trumpian. It is the old Karl Rove big tent nonsense about needing to sell the party to nonwhites. Because of what happened in 2016 and 2020, they have retooled the message. Instead of focusing on Trump’s loss, they are focusing on their anomalous gains down ticket and crediting that with the Hispanic vote. It is the new Big Lie.
Now, Rubio is as dumb as a goldfish, so he is never going to question the script he has been provided by his handlers. He also plays the Hispanic role well enough for the white people being targeted with this trick. Of course, he has been reliably open borders and supports endless wars of choice. You would think the interviewer would mention his fierce opposition to Trump and his coziness with the neocons, but that never happens in the highly scripted media environment.
Another bit of nonsense the interviewer did not bother to mention is that Trump did not do all the well with Hispanics. In 2004, Bush the Minor got 44% of the Hispanic vote according to studies after the election. McCain got 31% in 2008 and Romney got 27% in the 2012 election. Trump also got 27% in 2016. In 2020 it bumped up to 31%, despite four years of pandering to Hispanics. His black support jumped more than his Hispanic support over the same time.
This is easily obtainable data. Rubio has been making this claim since Karl Rove stapled a new cover page on his 2012 GOP Autopsy last October, so there has been plenty of time to check the numbers. You would think a reporter would ask Rubio about the facts, but that is not how it works. Rubio is there to sell the Big Lie and so is any reporter granted an interview with him. The whole point of the Big Lie is to keep repeating it unchallenged until it seems like the truth.
Of course, the point of the Big Lie is to keep whites from noticing what is happening to their country. That was the real danger of Trump. His voters could see with their own eyes that everyone at his rallies was white. His voters were allowed to discuss immigration, trade, and the endless wars. Trump was a lousy President, but he was a dangerous catalyst. He got white people talking about and noticing things that threaten the ruling regime, which is why they hated him.
Another angle to the Big Lie in this case is that it is intended to separate Trump from the party voters. Taken at face value, the claim here is that Hispanics liked the Republicans running down ticket, but not Trump. You see, that is why Trump lost but the party clung to enough seats to avoid a blowout. The Georgia Senate run-off has been hurled down the memory hole. The point is to repeat the claim that Trump the person was the problem, so he has to go.
The fact is, Trump was always the white candidate. His support was over 90% white and he won in 2016 by tapping into disaffected white voters in states the Republican Party had abandoned decades ago. He was unable to build on that support in 2020, because he spent four years pandering to nonwhites. Putting aside the gross irregularities in the election, Trump failed to deliver to the people who gave him the improbable 2016 election and it hurt him in those key states.
That is the point of the Big Lie. The people behind it are only focused on one thing and that is preventing white people from noticing what is happening. The absurdity of having a neocon stooge like Rubio sell the lie is part of the magic. Whites are supposed to come away thinking Rubio was won over in the Trump years. After all, how else can you explain this rabid anti-Trump guy now praising Trump? Why would the pro-Trump site Breitbart be going along with it?
This is why the Republican Party must be destroyed. It serves no other purpose than to prevent whites from accepting demographic reality. That reality is this. About one percent of the GOP vote is black. Another 5% is Hispanic and another 2-3% is coming from other nonwhite groups. Generously, ten percent of the GOP vote is from nonwhites and this has been true for generations. No amount of outreach or wishful thinking is changing that mathematical reality.
The Democrat Party is the antiwhite party. About 27% of their vote is from whites, while the rest is from nonwhites. That number continues to drop. In 2008 whites were 32% of the Democratic Party base. In 2000 it was 34%. The combination of whites heading for minority status and the Democratic Party becoming viciously antiwhite is collapsing their white support. There is a chicken and egg debate here as to whether they are driving whites out of the party or responding to demographics.
This is ultimately what the Big Lie is intended to conceal. Despite the painting of Trump as a racist, his support with nonwhites improved. If he had been clear about whose interests he served, he not only would have won more white votes, but he would have won more nonwhite votes. Osama bin Laden was right. “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.” That is what the Big Lie seeks to conceal from the people who need to hear it the most.
