White Nationalist Group Upset It’s Not Getting Credit for Inventing GOP ‘Whites-Only’ Strategy
It’s not the Onion…. Really!
As leaders of the Republican Party debate whether their party can remain viable without expanding its appeal among black and Latino voters, the white nationalist group that first outlined a GOP “whites-only” strategy for presidential victories wants credit for its idea.
In November of 2000, as George W. Bush and Al Gore were still wrangling over a handful of hanging chads in Florida, Steve Sailer, an unabashedly racist columnist for the white nationalist site VDARE, wrote a column outlining a potential strategy for the GOP to remain strong in the face of changing demographics. In his column, titled “GOP Future Depends on Winning Larger Share of the White Vote,” Sailer crunched exit poll numbers and outlined a strategy by which the Republican Party could lose “every single nonwhite vote” and still win the presidency by working to increase its share of working class white voters. Sailer and VDARE continued to promote this strategy for over a decade, arguing that Republican attempts to reach out to people of color were not only bad politics, but also a losing strategy.
HIghly recommend reading the entire article. Basically the “Sailer Strategy” is nothing more than the old “Southern Strategy” made even more odious.
VDARE and the whole “White Rights” movement are the cheap hooker that the GOP visits a couple of times a month because they say the things he wants to hear, but he would NEVER take her to the club… One must maintain appearances after all.
