Identity Politics and the Future of America

Hat tip to Vox Day for a link to a well written article by a black conservative on why black people vote Democrat.  Here’s his link.  And here’s the article.

The author Lipton Matthews persuasively explains why it is very unlikely that Republicans will ever be able to separate black voters from the Democrat party.  Basically voting for them is a group strategy that provides rewards in an overall way.  This is despite the obvious failings or even awfulness of a Maxine Waters or Al Sharpton that even the black voters see.

This is important for white Americans to understand. In the presence of interest groups negotiating for their preferences you must do the same. Appealing to these interest groups in the old way as fellow members of a nation is no longer possible or even desirable.  They do not act in that way.  They do not believe in it.  You should not believe in it.  Instead we need to discover who we can and cannot cooperate with.  Whose interests mostly match up with our own and whose interests are to a greater extent opposed to our own.  A good example would be a place like Singapore.  It is a multi-cultural society that historically has found its ethnicities in violent antagonism toward each other.  In order to thrive it has been necessary to carefully define what behaviors are allowable.  Freedom exists but is also circumscribed by what actions would lead to chaos.

Our country and its freedoms were instituted with the idea that there would not exist differing populations in conflict with each other.  These freedoms cannot exist when powerful groups are gaming the system to discredit it.  Conflict and intimidation is what is being foisted on us.  Criminal behavior is being selectively allowed and the policing of criminal behavior is being attacked and criminalized.  Really the only question is whether an organized resistance will coalesce and provide relief from the attacks.

As the only group currently unrepresented by a political entity it has fallen to the Republican party to serve that purpose for white voters.  But in the future a different organization will emerge.  And this organization does not need to be exclusively white in its membership.  But those who join must need to see their interests as aligned with the interests of the white population of America.  Call it Traditional America.  Call it whatever you want.  But it is the group of people who don’t want to see George Floyd held up as a role model or saint.  It is the group that knows that putting ten year old children on puberty blockers and castrating them or removing their breasts is child abuse and madness.  I’m sure there are reasonable people of every race and ethnicity who would sign up for the platform that used to be called conservatism.  But what is important is that conservatives realize that in the present environment all of those things have disappeared and won’t come back if we keep playing the game under the old rules.
