Watch this. Raheem is the Editor-in-Chief of National Pulse. He’s a Brit and a former advisor to Nigel Farage, the man who led the Brexit rebellion. Watch Raheem’s speech on, “The Future of Anti-Trump Conservatism,” at the Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Phoenix, Arizona.

Noting there is “no future” for the Never Trump sect of the Republican party, he draws parallels between Conservative Party infighting in the United Kingdom and the U.S. and encourages Americans to fight to reclaim the GOP.

“It’s more useful to take this party over because we can and we have the numbers and we have the bodies and we have the moral imperative than to split right now and to fissure off. But that does not mean compromising with the Never Trumpers. It means they have to leave the tent,” he adds.

Raheem dived into his experiences of internecine political warfare, stating: “despite the Conservative Party being scarcely interested in conservatism, despite the Conservative Party promoting and employing just ardently representing the most culturally Marxist, anti-Brexit, anti-sovereignty people out there in my country, despite that, Brexit happened.”

And Kassam sees a similar struggle playing out in the U.S.

You have the phrase outside the tent pissing in or inside the tent pissing out. The Never Trump movement are inside the tent pissing in. And at that point, you think well that’s why the walls of the tent exist. That will provide me some shield if you’re outside it trying to piss in, so get out.”

And that’s what this is going to come down to. Who’s going to get out,” he emphasizes.

Never Trump isn’t just about Donald Trump. Donald Trump would tell you it’s not about Donald Trump. It’s about this room. It’s not even about this room – it’s about your children and your children’s children. […] The Never Trump movement is about never nationalism. It’s about never patriotism. It’s about never populism. It’s about never a fair shake for the ordinary person ever again,” Kassam expounds.
