Donald Trump & Today's Counter-Revolution
Donald Trump's election Is a severe hammer-blow to decades of Leftist elitism and indoctrination. It's the first step to taking back the Gramscian “institutions”.
Antonio Gramsci, in the 1920s and 1930s, soon realised that the working class would never go for a violent revolution which was led by a vanguard of upper-middle-class Marxists. Thus, without a revolution or even a vote, Gramsci realised that the best advice for middle-class Leftists was to “take over the institutions”. (Gramsci openly acknowledged that he was jealous of the Catholic Church in Italy.) The Left has been doing that ever since; especially since the 1960s.
The most important institution is the university (as it was for both the Hitler Youth and the Red Guard). It's the universities which create the future Leftist professionate. And then, from the universities, Leftist graduates take over all the other major institutions.
You will note what none of these Leftist institutions (e.g., universities, the law, charities, NGOs, various churches, the BBC, etc.) rely on the vote – or at least on a vote which is open to those on the outside of the institution. That's the kind of environment Leftists love. It's where they can carry on their social experiments without any threat of being voted out.
And take in that snobbery towards the people who voted for Brexit and those who voted for Trump. Pure unadulterated snobbery! We've heard talk about “red necks”, “knuckle-draggers”, “white van men”, “lager louts”, etc.: all from the snobby Left. You see, the elitist Left no longer feels the need to patronise the working class as it did in former times. After all, the New Left has Muslims - as well as the LGBT (whom Muslims, of course, love) and suchlike - to patronise instead. To use.
So Trump and Brexit are the first firings of this Glorious Counter-Revolution. Let's also hope that Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen do the same in France and Holland respectively.
This is just the beginning.
