"the great majority of these not-crazy Republicans are still supporting Mr. Trump for president. And we have a right to ask why."I can only speculate, of course, but I suspect it has a lot to do with a semi-conscious rejection of "progressive" ideology, which is premised on white racial self-denial and self-contempt.
I say "semi-conscious", because I don't think they are fully aware of what it is they reject, anymore than the "progressives" who embrace it are. If they were, they would reject it too, I'm sure.
Modern neuroscience (see Why You Don’t Know Your Own Mind by Alex Rosenberg) has demonstrated that we are largely motivated by the subconscious, which rationalises our behaviour without us understanding it.
Why are America's still largely white elites making a moral virtue and imperative of reducing their own race to an ethnic minority in the country their European forebears founded? Can you imagine any other race or ethnic group doing the same? Of course not. Because it is not a virtue, but madness. Total madness.
Donald Trump clearly has his faults, but at least he doesn't deny and despise his own race, the way his "progressive" opponents do.
Mainstream academic and political ideology of white racial self-denial and self-contempt demands an explanation, which I believe I can provide. It began as an understandable overreaction to the evils of Nazism and the Holocaust, which quickly became part of the state's age-old strategy of “divide and rule”, which I elaborate on HERE.
