"After decades of pandering to intolerance while working against the needs of working-class Americans and minorities, the Republican Party appears headed for disaster."While Democrats have pandered to minorities, especially blacks, on the back of an ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt.
Yes, an ideology of racial self-denial and self-contempt, if not outright self-hatred. There is no other way of describing it. It involves a lot of Orwellian doublethink, of course: race and ethnic identify matter, if you belong to a minority - especially if you are black - but not if you are white. Whites are expected to deny and despise their own race and ethnic identity.
What is "Celebrating Diversity" other than Orwellian newspeak for white people to celebrate their own ethnic decline and ultimate demise?
Where does this self-destructive ideology come from? It began as an OVERREACTION, I suggest, to European imperialism, slavery, Jim Crow, Apartheid and, above all, Nazism and the Holocaust, which was blamed on white prejudice against Jews, notwithstanding that Jews themselves are white - more Orwellian doublethink!
What purpose does this ideology serve? It serves the 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".
I elaborate on these ideas HERE.
