The math is simple for Republicans. There is much more to gain, as Bloomberg admits, from alienated White voters concerned about immigration and job losses than from Hispanics who want open borders and amnesty. Donald Trump has helped push the GOP to the Right this election cycle. But given that 1) Whites are being replaced demographically in the USA due to Federal policy and 2) Whites make up a huge majority of Republican supporters “the Republican challenge,” as Bloomberg points out “will be to increase the overall percentage of the white vote, countering demographic trends, as well as their share of it.”
It is indeed a “risky” strategy, as the magazine points out, to side with a shrinking population in a democratic system. But what choice do the Republicans really have? They can go the way of Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush and cater to the alien but this increasing turns off White voters. When given a choice potential Republicans voters, many of them alienated by mainstream GOP politics, reject Graham and Bush for the more pro-White politics of Donald Trump.
Pat Buchanan says that Trump and the populist-nationalist politics which surround him are the future of the Republican Party. The Left-wing Media Matters claims that White nationalist ideas are now “firmly in the mainatream.”
Is this a positive development for Southern nationalists? That would seem to largely rest on whether you subscribe to the “worse is better” theory. I do not. Better is better, especially when it comes to rejecting political-correctness, challenging the false-Right elites and improving our demographic situation. We need space for our ideas and time to develop our organizations, cultural influence and intellectual tradition.
