James Allsup: "Beyond Trump" (at American Renaissance conference 2019)
Released by American Renaissance ( https://www.youtube.com/user/AmRenVideos/videos ) on June 7, 2019. Original text: Activist James Allsup criticizes President Trump’s betrayals on immigration, but also credits Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign with invigorating young activists who have become the backbone of white advocacy. Mr. Allsup condemns the neoliberal elite that is destroying America’s identity and quality of life by importing migrants. For these elite, migrants reduce wages and swell the ranks of consumers. In response, Mr. Allsup calls for local, face-to-face community-building and support networks, saying that whites have the opportunity to construct a nation from within this crumbling empire and create a true “American Renaissance.”
The median home-buying age has increased from 26 to 34. Real wages for the American people have been stagnant for nearly 40 years. Despite record economic productivity, Americans aren't making more than we used to, but we feel like we are. Cheap consumer goods have flooded the market -clothes, toys, electronics.. Things that would have been considered top luxuries just a few years ago are ubiquitous today. Conservatives love to tell Americans access to consumer goods is one of America's crowning achievements. Ben Shapiro will argue that your ability to purchase your fifth television means you have no right to complain about American society.
Americans used to derive their identity from who we are - our national characteristics, our attitude, our common ancestry, our spirit. Now, we identify ourselves around which sports ball team we cheer for on Sundays; are we team i-phone or team Android? Do we prefer Nike or Adidas?
Consumerism is a dehumanising force, which divorces us from the things which make us who we are and intertwines us with the things we choose to purchase. Marketing firms have spent billions of dollars researching the best ways to exploit our psychology and convince us that buying the next product is the missing key to bringing us happiness. All in my life will be well when I get a 2" bigger television or a phone with 2 more megapixels. A good consumer is never satisfied with what they have and is constantly driven to buy more, and to buy outside their means.
Although America is, for now, the world's largest market for consumer goods, Americans aren't exactly very good consumers. A 2018 study from the Bureau of Labour Statistics found that only 23% of white households are rented while 77% are owned or owned with a mortgage. By comparison, 60% of black households and 55% of Latino households are rented. The study found that white Americans build wealth and equity through home ownership and non-whites, even Asians, prefer to pay rent.
A study from the University of Chicago found that white people are actually some of the worst consumers imaginable. In a paper titled, "Conspicuous Consumption and Race", researchers discovered that black Americans and Hispanics spent up to 30% more than whites with comparable income on visible goods like clothing, cars and jewellery. Researchers discovered that blacks and Hispanics tend not to put money in savings. They save less money in the case of emergency. They save less for healthcare expenses. They don't save for college.
If you're part of the neoliberal, capitalist elite that strives to maximise profit, you want more consumers and you also want to decrease costs, which means decreasing wages. It would make sense for you to demographically eliminate the people who demand things like vacation time, maternity leave and a fair and living wage that would allow them to raise a family on a single income. You'd want to eliminate the people who save their money, own their homes instead of paying rent, and don't fall for predatory, usurious lending. As the workforce becomes lower-paid and lower-skilled, quality of life for those residing in the US, Americans and non-Americans alike, will suffer. For a glimpse into our country's wonderful future take a look at the corrugated aluminium skylines of South American favellas or the conditions in your average Indian hospital or the academic environment in your typical South African university.
The elites don't mind. They'll be in their gated communities. They can pay to have their good doctor. They'll be in their coastal enclaves. They'll have expensive contractors to build their homes. Private ambulance services and foreign passports waiting on their night stands at home, but we, the proles, will be forced to experience diversity, and we will appreciate it because it is our strength.
We aren't the easily controllable worker and consumer automatons that this capitalist, neoliberal system demands, and so they have to replace us. Inconveniently for the usurers and media elites, we are not going quietly. People in growing numbers are standing up and rejecting the neoliberal morality pushed upon us by the powerful elites and technocrats.
