Trumpís Strategy Makes Perfect Sense ó And Itís Diabolical [View all]

By Peter Daou August 13, 2016

Dozens of theories have been propounded to explain Donald Trumpís outlandish and dangerous behavior; most of them center on his insatiable appetite for self-aggrandizement. But everything he is doing makes perfect sense if you look at it through the right (and white) prism. Simply put: His ambitions are larger than the U.S. presidency.

I love watching these poor, pathetic people (pundits) on television working so hard and so seriously to try and figure me out. They can't!

7:43 AM - 12 Aug 2016

Somethingís been bugging me about Donald Trumpís candidacy. I donít mean the egregious comments ó we all know how offensive they are. Iím talking about the strategy behind it, the sense that something else is going on that we havenít quite figured out:


Whatever it is, something seems fishy; it feels like weíre getting played. And we need to pay careful attention. Complacency is dangerous in these circumstances.

And today it clicked: Donald Trump is not running a campaign to win the American presidency. Rather, he is using his presidential run as a vehicle to achieve a larger personal ambition: To be seen as the leader of a ďwhite awakeningĒ ó the term David Duke used to describe his campaign.

Itís that he is willing to pay the price of defeat, denunciation and even disgrace to become a (darkly) transformational figure in American history, organizing and empowering the extreme right, mainstreaming their views with the help of a timid national media, and fully awakening the forces of bigotry and intolerance that lurk in the shadows of American society.
