The Iranian protests and the fall of the mainstream right

This past week has been one heck of a week and a strange sequence of events to finish off Trump’s first year of 2017. It all started when Steve Bannon of Breitbart started jumping ship after revoking their support of Republican candidate Paul Nehlen who is running against current Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in 2018. It got worse when Paul Nehlen started picking fights with several alt-lite personalities such as Mike Cernovich and John Cardillo. Then it got worse, when protests started popping up in Iran. At first these seem like legitimate protests against the current Islamic theocracy in Iran, but as more details and evidence came out, I myself and several others were able to see this is a neocon plot to setup Iran for another regime change, which means another foreign Middle Eastern war. The worst part about it is, that a good chunk of the mainstream right fell for the false narrative, sites and personalities such as Breitbart, InfoWars, Paul Joseph Watson, Mike Cernovich, Jack Posobiec, and others have abandoned many of their previous criticisms of neocon foreign policy decisions in the past and that the dissident right consisting of personalities such as Richard Spencer, James Allsup, Nick Fuentes, Red Ice TV, Ann Coulter, and maybe even Partisangirl (or Syriangirl) and others could be what’s left of the America First movement heading into the midterm election year of 2018. If Trump, and the chunk of his base (the mainstream conservatives) want to keep trucking along with the America First agenda in 2018, Trump needs to kick any remaining globalists out of his foreign policy team, the mainstream conservatives need to go back to being critical of neocon foreign policy decisions, and Trump needs to finally build the wall across the Mexican border like he promised back on the campaign trail, if none of that happens, then 2018 will be remembered as the fall of the Trump presidency as illegal immigration would increase, a blue wave would take the majority of Congress in 2018, foreign wars in Iran and Syria would destabilize those places and put Christians and other MENA minorities in danger, and Trump’s presidency would be remembered as a failed one-term presidency after losing in 2020. As for my position on the Iranian protests, I would take a third position and support a return of a conservative Persian monarchy with secularization put in place, and I would support doing this without any military intervention. Oh how, the mighty ones have fallen.
