White conservatives are angry!
Those ding-dang dumb liberals are lettin’ in more and more immigrants and Muslims and promoting blacks and queers over the interests of god-fearing good white Christians! They just ain’t gonna take it no more!
They are WHITE RAGED!
They’ll stop those liberals from turning their country into something other than the white haven god meant it to be even if they have to sell the whole dern country out to the Russians and forego democracy! Just like these two fellers:

Those garsh darn blacks and Mexicans and feminists and Muslims and immigrants and queers and trans whatever you call ’em ain’t going to get their country not if they can help it! Make no mistake, it ain’t economic insecurity that is driving this white rage, it is racial resentment and bigotry.
In a classic case of cutting off your nose with the bath water, these folks seem to rather have anything else, including destroying the country, rather than allow liberals and progressives to be elected much less enact laws.
To make matters worse, the Repubes are willing to go right along with them. The Repubes aren’t even pretending to be democratic any more. They are happy to gerrymander, disenfranchise voters, lie, cheat, and steal to enact their political agenda. They are now being full fledged authoritarians seeking a permanent majority much like the tin-horned dictators of Central and South America that Reagan liked to demagogue were presidents-for-life.
The Repubes in Congress aren’t trying to stop Russian interference in the mid-terms because they are hoping the Russians will throw the election their way. These white conservative voters are more than happy to let the Russians manipulate our elections just to enjoy the cheap thrill of pissing off the liberals.
