The Elite Hates The Trump Doctrine Because It Puts America First
We have Kurt Schlichter
What our betters ‐ those same smug geniuses who brought us Iraq, let NATO deadbeats string us along, and who let Mexico and China exploit us ‐ truly hate is the fact that the American people stood up in 2016 and demanded that our foreign policy stop sucking. Americans are sick of always getting handed the bill for some lame ruling caste priority, whether it’s paying for the privilege of defending Europe on behalf of ungrateful continentals or funding the weird climate religion or letting China get rich off of gutting our industries. Mostly, we are sick of shipping our magnificent warriors off to die in ill-conceived, poorly-planned, ineptly-executed wars where we ended up shedding our boys’ (and girls’) blood refereeing fights that go back a dozen centuries.
The coastal elite gets to bask in the radiance of its own moral superiority for deploying young people in camo from Nebraska farms and Texas towns, and we get to hold the funerals.
...America First is a commonsense response to decades of America Last. It’s a repudiation of those who get elected by Americans to protect and promote American interests yet think of themselves as "Global Citizens."
The elite scoffs at the notion of a "Trump Doctrine," imagining that no one but them could construct a coherent geopolitical paradigm. Of course, their neo-Wilsonian faculty lounge geopolitical paradigm has been a disaster, but if there’s one thing our garbage elite is good at ‐ it is certainly no good at its core responsibilities of preserving American power, prosperity and freedom ‐ it is weaseling out of accountability for its myriad failures.
