George W. Bush: Muh Democracy & Diversity

(Before It's News)

Ex-President George W. Bush has been counter-signaling the Donald Trump administration in recent days, slightly more than a month into the Trump era.

In Trump’s battle with the partisan media Bush has sided openly with the press, saying that a hostile media is “indispensable to democracy.” He went on to imply that the likes of CNN and NBC are necessary to keep Trump from abusing his power. Bush appeared to side with US Senator and neo-conservative warminger John McCain against Trump’s assertion that the hostile media is the “enemy of the people.”

Bush attacked Trump’s Alt-Right supporters too and the growing nationalist tide, saying “Yes, I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like people feeling alienated.”

None of this is much of a surprise given that Trump ran strongly against George W. Bush’s record, condemned his war in Iraq and made the Bush family one of his favorite punching bags during the campaign.

Though the Trump administration is just getting started we already see the extent to which the Republican establishment (especially congressional leaders) are going to fight him every step of the way. They are far more aligned with the liberal media, past presidents and Big Business/globalist interests than they are with us. It means that the president will likely be unable to fully impliment his America First agenda even though “his” party controls the government. It reminds us that we still need truly revolutionary change. In this environment the Alt-South has much work to do in building a Southern Nationalist media platform and organizing the core of movement which can take advantage of the Trump era to point the way towards a brighter future that won’t include the likes of Bush, the hostile media and DC establishment.
