Political watchers knew this would come sooner rather than later. The so-called "America First Caucus" is pure Trump and its goal can be summed up in four words: "Make America White Again".
It's likely anyone who reads this screed has heard that a pair of Trump acolytes and evil Congressional officials from Georgia and Arizona, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar, formed a new movement in the House of Representatives. Most of the media focuses on the aim of the new caucus to "emphasize respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions," but there is much more to it than a nifty little phrase.
Undoubtedly, a large majority of Americans have no idea what "uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions" or "infrastructure in keeping with the offspring of European architecture" really means. This author can help with that.
North American Anglo-Saxon means by definition:
"Any white, English-speaking person."
The definition gives a quote as an example of exactly how to use Anglo-Saxons in a sentence about culture in America.
"There's the fiery passion of Latin Americans, the cold implicit fetishism of Eastern Europeans, and the faith-based frigidity of white Anglo-Saxons." (Author bold)
Greene and her cohort would more accurately refer to their Trump-inspired group as "WASP" caucus if they were transparent. WASP is the abbreviation for "White Anglo-Saxon Protestants"; Catholics, Jews, Asians, African-Americans, Hispanics and people from the Middle East do not need to apply for membership in the nation that corresponds to the "uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions" advocated by the America First Caucus. And like Trump, if the caucus has its way, these non-WASP races would not be welcomed in America.
If anyone has the stomach for a shipload of Trumpism in a disgustingly miserable seven-page manifesto, they can read it here. But be warned, it's like reading a transcript of a Trump speech that contains all of Trump's male excrement lies – about immigrants, about China, about progressives, about foreign policy, about international trade, about education, about foreign aid, and from Course on security of choice.
To summarize the seven-page document in full is just too outrageous for this author to put into words. it was agonizing enough to have to read it. However, it is basically full of nativist propaganda based on Trump's evil lies to stimulate his racist base. Of course, an entire section is devoted to thinking about Trump's conspiracy theories and lying about why he lost the 2016 presidential election.
It's unclear how many fanatical Trump acolytes will join Greene and Gosar in the new WASP caucus, but it's likely more than just Barry Moore (R-AL) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) are already signed up have early and very exuberant members. Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted that he too was keen to get on board to make America white again.
If there are any doubts that inspired this particularly Trumpist ideology of “whitening America again”, take note of this introductory sentence, which was deleted directly from the WASP policy platform: It reads:
"It takes a certain intellectual boldness among members of the AFC to follow in President Trump's footsteps and possibly step on some toes and sacrifice sacred cows for the good of the American nation." (Author bold)
When the group says "sacrifice sacred cows," it means completely ridding America of federal government, immigration, education, free and fair elections, foreign policy, external aid, trade deals, and anything that threatens the fossil fuel industry. They claim that in their "uniquely Anglo-Saxon political tradition" all power and authority to rule the people will rest with the individual states.
No one in their right mind should disregard the intentions of this far-right group of discontent to bring their fascist policies to fruition. Remember, all but a few Republicans in Congress voted Trump to spark an insurrection against the federal government that resulted in a deadly but failed coup that allowed Trump to stay in power.
These un-American Cretans are dead serious and no sane person should disregard their will to make their politics the law of the land. As mentioned above, this group's commitment to uniquely Anglo-Saxon traditional politics is all Trump and if anyone knows their world history they will understand that traditional Anglo-Saxon politics was a tyrannical monarchy.
It is worth noting that Anglo-Saxons originated in Germany and invaded Britain when Rome left the island nation. Another German took on Anglo-Saxon political tradition in the 1930s, trying to purge his kingdom of the same kind of people that Trump and his vile supporters propose to whitewash America again. Anyone who does not tremble at the prospect of this clear and present danger from the new Trump caucus to America is either a racist Trump supporter or just plain stupid.
