The cuckservative, alienist lie that race does not matter, that gender barely matters, that strength is a curse, and that weakness is the key to success, is taking a beating this week as the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, has openly scorned his nation’s longstanding ally and defender in favor of another, racially similar power that has no hangups when it comes to looking out for number one.
Duterte, the Filipino strongman who has put law and order ahead of the human rights of drug traffickers, has told the president of the United States to go to Hades, and called him a “son of a whore.”
This from the president of a country that once venerated U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur as its white savior from the Japanese imperial scourge.
Somewhere amidst the much-hyped and less-implemented “Asian pivot” that President Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had promised in 2011, the United States became the butt of jokes to Asians like Duterte and his Filipino countrymen, while the Chinese became the next hot item.
The obvious difference in attitude between no-nonsense, up-and-coming Asians like Duterte and status-quo, entitlement-mentality postmoderns like Obama and Clinton has translated into a markedly different U.S.-Filipino relationship virtually overnight.
Strength matters. Race matters. Testosterone matters. And ignorance of these basic truths has left Obama, Clinton, and the United States high and dry in the Asia-Pacific theater. Worse yet, with further waves of postmodern, colorblind degeneracy due to swamp America over the next few decades, at the same time that China goes from regional power to global superpower, our troubles in Asia and the Pacific have likely only just begun.
