"the angry millions in the margins, those who may be tempted by the demagogue who wants to make America white again."America never was entirely white, so no one, I'm sure, not even the few genuine white supremacists, imagines making America white again.
America was founded and largely made what it is today by white settlers from Europe. It is still a white majority country in which whites remain the dominant political, cultural, economic, scientific and technological force, but for reasons less noble than they believe, America's ruling elites (themselves overwhelmingly white) have embraced an ideology of racial self-denial and self-contempt.
That millions of ordinary white Americans with a healthy sense of their own ethnic origins and identity are very unhappy about this is entirely understandable. They find themselves in the position of a child with masochistic parents, who want to include it their games of self-flagellation.
It is not just America, of course, but the ruling elites of all western countries which have embraced this ideology, that initially was an overreaction to Nazism and the Holocaust (as well as to Jim Crow and Apartheid), which has been exploited by the state to serve its age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, dividing society into a morally superior, now supposedly "colour-blind", elite and the morally inferior, naturally (human nature being what it is) less colour-blind, masses, who must submit to the authority of and domination by their "moral superiors".
This is a major social and political issue that urgently needs to be recognised and addressed.
