    Tucked away in the woods of middle Tennessee’s Montgomery Bell State Park, 300 “white advocates” gathered over the weekend at the fourteenth American Renaissance conference to reflect on just how much fuel Trump has added to their movement this election cycle.

    "I've never felt this sense of energy in our movement," the conference host, Jared Taylor, said in his opening remarks. "I've never been more optimistic."

    For the conference, American Renaissance, a white nationalist publication, brought advocates for a white ethno-state together with Holocaust deniers, eugenicists and confederate sympathizers. American Renaissance and many of the groups the conference speakers are associated with are designated as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

    According to Taylor, this year's conference saw a 100-person jump in attendance from 2015; a show of hands identified half of the participants as first-time attendees and one-third as under the age of 30...

    Trump’s candidacy and the proliferation of white nationalist media online have put the old guard of white advocacy in touch with the new. At the conference, anti-immigrant, pro-Confederate old-timers rubbed shoulders with the young men of the “alt-right”—a loosely defined amalgam of isolationist white nationalists who crusade against political correctness and thrive on the Internet...

    Almost every conference attendee TPM spoke with said he or she voted for Trump in the primaries. Some had attended rallies or canvassed for his campaign. A few, like William Johnson, have done much more. Johnson, the founder of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, poured thousands of dollars into his American National Super PAC’s effort to blanket early voting states with robocalls urging voters to back Trump....

    Peter Brimelow was a conservative financial journalist for Forbes and The National Review until his increasingly caustic anti-immigrant beliefs led to his dismissal in 1997. He now runs the “patriotic immigration reform” site In his talk, the British expat pointed to Trump’s campaign announcement speech as the “spark” that started “the conflagration.”

    Keep in mind too though that when you think of the electorate, half have below average intelligence, thus the average IQ of 100, never mind those of higher IQ but who might be douchebags anyway.

    Granted there are those of lower IQ with good hearts who tend to not follow hate, but they might have less internal resources to guide them, might be more susceptible to fears, might be more easily manipulated. And then many of higher IQ might more respect the free will of others so be less inclined towards manipulating.

    So you wind up with the higher intelligence douchebags ie salesmen manipulating others to get their way and that's what Trump is. Thus while highly valuing the vote, we pledge allegiance to the republic, not to the democracy... key difference between a democracy and a republic lies in the limits placed on government by the law, which has implications for minority rights. Both forms of government tend to use a representational system where citizens vote to elect politicians to represent their interests and form the government. However, in a republic, a constitution or charter of rights protects certain inalienable rights that cannot be taken away by the government, even if it has been elected by a majority of voters. In a "pure democracy," the majority is not restrained in this way and can impose its will on the minority.

    ...and hope it works out well in the wash.
