Meme: GOP, Racism, & the Southern Strategy
Meme: GOP Racism
There just no denying that the GOP has actively courted the white racist vote since 1964 when four Southern states went for Barry Goldwater over Lyndon Johnson. Nixon certainly codified the strategy, but no one went as far as Reagan who launched his presidential bid in Philadelphia, Mississippi the site of the infamous Zion Church bombing and murder of three civil rights workers.
The GOP continues to divide America racially and milk the middle class to the benefit of the upper class wrecking the economy at the same time. It’s time to wake up and smell the sewage seeping out of the GOP septic tank.

It's been five long years of blogging the Trump years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've pulled some of our remaining hair out, but we've made it. It is almost done and our democracy, nation, and souls are still largely intact. Unfortunately, we're not through.There is much more to come as we stitch ourselves back together like some kind of common Frankenstein monster as we recover from the PTSD that Trump gave us and the needless deaths and suffering from #COVID19. We also have to keep #BidenHarris honest & progressive, oppose Republican obstructionism anti-democratic tendencies, and whatever other black swans await us. All of which will be addressed using good old-fashioned snarcky, sarcasticky, profaney fun and psychological insights.

This is a topic I would love to research. When I’m done talking about the Democratic Party, the Republican Party should be next.

Just catching up on some commenting and correspondence — sometimes work and family life…
I’ve enjoyed your insights into the Democratic Party’s dynamics, so I will enjoy reading about your findings on the GOP, too. I have a deep appreciation for your devotion to research and detail.
Reblogged this on The Militant Negro™.

Thank you sir for your reblogging! Much appreciated… again! I’ve just published a post along these same lines exploring the psychological roots of white supremacy. I’d appreciate your thoughts on it.
