Quote of the day

From Taki Theodoracopulos:
The rise of Trump I did not foresee, although any clearheaded person should have. For entirely too long working-class people have been dismissed as not smart enough, their passion rooted in racism, guns, and beer. These same people have not had a raise in their standard of living since the Reagan era. In the meantime the wolves of Wall Street have all become billionaires, while none of the Goldman Sachs crooks and others of their ilk who caused the 2008 recession have gone to jail. So it was bound to happen, the awakening of the working-class white stiff who is now even told not to retain the silly old notion that single-sex, multiple-occupancy bathrooms and changing facilities should be entered based on a person’s biological gender as opposed to the one they imagine it to be. (Well, that suits me perfectly. I now need to find out where Keira Knightley’s locker room is located.)

  1. Taki is a man who appreciates that the Good Old Days, when there were such things as class, good manners, elegance, and good taste, even in the lower classes, really were.

  2. Give the average working class stiff a chance to take back the country, and he's not going to just storm the beaches of Normandy and then quit. He'll be part of Trump's "Berlin Express".

    It's called "unconditional surrender", Leftards.

  3. Taki occasionally wrote columns for NR back in the 70's and 80's.

    1. Yep, bro. His pieces for the Spectator were gold. Taki was the godparent of Milo. But it is a different world now. Great comment Mark...

  5. For a while he gave refuge to John Derbyshire, whose writings and podcasts are now hosted by VDARE. The Derb-meister was an interesting and often challenging read. He had a way with words...which he never minced.

    1. I understand what you are saying, but I care about "marriage" and "bathrooms" in an Orwellian "Freedom is the right to say that two plus two equal 4, and if that freedom is lost then all is lost" sense.

    2. Oh you're a "Never Trumper".

      I'm giving you more credit than you deserve when I say that I understand what you are saying.

    3. I remember a Psychology Today article from the seventies or eighties which opined that young men who believed in a strong National Defense and were supporting Ronald Reagan suffered from castration anxieties - this was in the middle of the Cold War, mind you.

      This was not offered as political snark; it was offered as serious therapeutic analysis.

      So I'm not seriously worried about what a group of moonstruck nuthouses with letters after their names and a political agenda have to say about Donald Trump.

  8. Taki wrote a terrific memoir, "Nothing To Declare," about the time he was caught with cocaine at London's Heathrow Airport and spent 3 months in Pentonville Prison, notorious for its bad conditions.

    I used to read Taki's columns years ago -- can't recall where -- and I loved them.
