Nothing more. Nothing less.
The Trump phenomenon is showing how many people actually want to survive, and it should be the most encouraging thing you've ever seen in your entire life.
The Pope himself has declared war on The Trump, and this should bring a smile to anyone's face who read Raspail's The Camp of the Saints. There wasn't supposed to be anyone contesting the overwhelming of the West...
And yet, The Trump stands.

And as he stands, defiance grows.
Courage is contagious.
And as white men around the world learn once again that they can get off their knees and stand, a hilarious reminder of what they leave behind them is found in the internecine violence in Chicago. [Friends and fellow protesters mourn activist killed in Park Manor shooting, Chicago Reader, 2-10-16]:
Friends and family held a "March for Matt" and a candlelight vigil Tuesday for Matthew Williams, a 21-year-old Chicago activist who was shot and killed Friday night. Williams was playing Xbox with friends in a basement apartment in the city's Park Manor neighborhood when a gunman fired into the window of the apartment, striking Williams in the back. His cousin cradled him in his arms until an ambulance arrived, according to several of Williams's friends. Williams was then taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after midnight.
What happened prior to the shooting is murky, although sources close to the family say there was an altercation in the apartment prior to the shooting. Williams was not involved with the fight, they said. An investigation into the shooting is under way.
Williams, a Virginia native who moved to Chicago just over a year ago, came out as a strong opponent of Mayor Rahm Emanuel following the release of the Laquan McDonald video.
"Matt always wanted to be involved with every protest," said Ja'Mal Green, 20, a fellow activist and creator of the infamous " Rahm Failed Us" T-shirts. "He had a bubbly personality. [He] was fun, but passionate about change."
In a series of tweets posted just a few hours before the shooting took place, Williams touched on gun violence, and how it can quickly escalate from an altercation, while also declaring his love for people on his Facebook page.
There have been 335 shootings and 69 homicides across Chicago since the start of the year, only 40 days into 2016, according to the Chicago Tribune. January and February 2015 accounted for 52 homicides.
Friends and fellow protesters described Williams as a funny, charismatic man who wanted justice served for the black community.
"[Williams] disagreed with gun violence and violence as a whole," says Rwanda Charnelle Davis, 20, a friend from Virginia. "Which was the sad thing about his death—he died from that very thing." She says Williams had a talent for music and had more than seven books filled with rap lyrics.
"Matt was a believer in equal rights for everyone," said longtime friend Travonn Harper, 20. "He was a free spirit and not afraid to speak his mind."
At one of the last protest Williams attended, he wore a red "I Matter" shirt while holding a bullhorn to his mouth. "He had a lot of heart, and would never step back," Green said. "He would let cops know things are going to stop."
"He wanted his future kids and everyone else's kids that came in the future to not have to fight for what he was fighting for now," Green said. "Better education, a better [Chicago Police Department] culture, making sure everyone has equal opportunity, resources and jobs.One of the so-called "leading" Black Lives Matter agitators/terrorists was gunned down by a random black person in Chicago... all while white people across the nation individually come to the conclusion something is distressingly wrong with the present, and that if things continue unimpeded they (and their children) will have no future.
Enter The Trump.
Not only do Black Lives Not Matter (courtesy of blacks killing one another without discrimination in making sure "respected" black leaders like Mr. Williams remain unharmed), but we are nearing a moment when The Trump lets slip a speech that changes things... forever.
White Lives Matter.
The world is literally on the verge of shaking when white people explicitly state what they implicitly know to be true.
And in a nation where gun crime is almost invariably always committed by a black individual, the death of "peace activist" Matthew Williams is the exclamation point on the sentence "Black Lives Don't Matter!"[Funeral services for gunned down peace activist, WGNTV.com, 2-12-16]:
A young community activist is gunned down at a friend’s house the week before he was supposed to rally for peace.
This past weekend, 21-year-old Matthew Williams died a violent death, the kind he held peace marches and rallies about.
The kind of black on black murder we hear about far too often in this city.
Chicago police say Williams was in the wrong place at the wrong time, playing video games at a friend’s apartment at 71st and Calumet, when a guy with a gun came back to settle a score with someone else and Williams was the innocent victim.
Williams had only been back in Chicago for a year and wanted to make a difference, make a life for himself.
He was doing that, organizing peace marches and rallies with his friend Ja’mal Green.
Today Williams’ family had his wake and funeral.
His passionate and bubbly personality will be missed.
He came back in the last year, just to have his life taken away.
But they believe Matthew will be there in spirit tomorrow, Saturday, Solidarity Day.
Leaders and activists from all over the city are coming together to march starting at 63 and King Drive and into Englewood and other neighborhoods high in crime.
“This is about coming together for these causes because we are at war with each other and with the police,” says Green.Silly Ja'mal: Civilization is for white people. And just as walls can be built high to keep people out, they can be built even higher to keep people in.
