The Dissident Right’s agenda is defined by two facts that they broadcast pretty constantly. One is that the United States will soon be a minority majority voting population. The other is that we are not going to vote our way out of the Left’s control.
The demographics of the first assertion seem very likely. The second proposition revolves around the fact that other ethnicities will vote their own self interests and that they will be convinced that the Democrat agenda represents those self-interests. I’m not going to state categorically that they are wrong on this second point. After all, the Democrats get close to 90% of the black vote and the majority of the other non-white ethnic votes. But even if we despair of winning the national vote for President, within the swing states it seems worthwhile to look at how the ethnic vote could be added to a coalition.
The first thing that should be admitted is that prying the black vote away from the Democrats, even in a Red State is probably an impossibility, at least for the foreseeable future. And with the recent polarization caused by BLM and Antifa the real question concerning the black population is whether they will be willing to live peaceably with their neighbors at all. But let’s look at the rest of the ethnic populations.
While it is true that the Democrats have managed to coopt the votes of the Asian and Latino voters pretty successfully in the past it is worth thinking about what the current political realities mean for this existing pattern. And the woke political policies I mean to concentrate on is the current campaign to delegitimize the police and the reverse discrimination tactic called equity.
First the police. Even in places like Portland OR and Minneapolis MN where the majority of the citizens are hopeless bug men who yearn for a society where muggers, rapists and murderers are judged not by their crimes but by the color of their skins I bet there is a very healthy sized population of normal people who yearn to escape from the madness of BLM protests and the associated lawless reign of terror. And not so surprisingly I bet there are plenty of Asian and Latino people among them who wish this nightmare would end and life would return to normal. And of course, there are black people living in this mess who also wish it would end but they’re stuck in their communities and that’s a problem for another day. To my way of thinking the political message that should be broadcast to the ethnic communities is that living in a woke community means law enforcement cannot restrain the threat from criminals in the black community.
Next comes equity. The easiest piece of equity to target is what it means for education. The schools will be dumbed down to avoid “white supremacist ideas” like 2 + 2 = 4. Some people will claim that only the Asian parents will respond to this second condition but I feel that even many Latino parents are unhappy with the prospect of sending their kids to be taught mush instead of STEM. After all, even those illegals from Guatemala come here because there’s money to be made. And they know that education is the key to advancement.
The reason this strategy should work with the non-black minority communities is because woke policies cater almost exclusively to one population, blacks. And because of this it disadvantages all the rest of the ethnic groups, not just whites. What other group benefits from black criminals being allowed to rampage through a city. None. Everyone else pays the price and it is a steep one. A clever politician should be able to sell an anti-equity platform to everyone but the black population.
But let’s say that in the swing states the minorities stubbornly cling to the Democrat woke alliance. Then it is doubly important that the Red States clearly declare that color blind impartiality is the rule for all state-run activities. In fact, now that the feds and the Blue States have gone all in for “equity” it’s the perfect time to push things back all the way to total color blindness. In other words, no more reverse discrimination, no more affirmative action, no more quotas, no nothing. Push back is the right thing at this point.
So that’s the way I think these things should go. But to do any of this we need real leaders with courage and brains. We probably should recruit the Wizard of Oz to provide the gifts he gave the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow to all the Red State governors and legislators. And while he’s at it he might as well give them a heart too.
