GOP Or GAP? Peter Brimelow Speaks To Thomas Jefferson Club
I spoke in Newtown, PA this last week to a meeting of the Thomas Jefferson Club, at the invitation of its president, Jeff McGeary, on the topic “Which Way Western Man?” Dan Amato of the hard-hitting blog Diggers Realm, which we have quoted many times, took an exclusive video of the proceedings:
My fellow-speaker was Louis T. March, who has done much to expose government waste and corruption related to the now-famous Pigford “black farmer” scam. Louis got a standing ovation. I put it down to the Southern Gospel tradition.
I talked primarily about immigration`s electoral impact a.k.a. numbers. Incidentally, in my talk I use the term “Generic American Party” or “GAP” to make the point that while the Republican Party, or GOP, currently receives the overwhelming default mode support of the historic American nation, there`s nothing fixed about this—the GOP is certainly doing nothing to deserve it and may one day be displaced (or taken over) by a more explicit movement. I keep meaning to write this idea up but of course never have time.
I was very impressed by the audience in Newtown, which included many VDARE.com fans. The process of displacement/takeover may be further along than is generally recognized.
