Literally Brand Conservatives as Racists – Opinion

If the new progressive talking point has escaped noticed, it goes a little something like this: despite the fact that there are dozens of talking head think-pieces out there touting the great good that will result from a a slow phasing-out of white people as the majority demographic — promulgated by even the president himself — Republicans who noticed this talk as something the left embraces are racists and, according to MSNBC guest Donny Deutsch, should be literally branded as such.

You have it. It’s no longer a lack of mask that will identify your unwillingness to comply with the liberal world order. It’s now a brand, seared into the skin, letting the world know you are guilty of wrong-think. You also hate skin tones other than yours.

Of course this one gets very tricky because, as mentioned above, it’s the left who’ve been excited about the prospect of a diminishing white population. There are tons of examples, but here’s my favorite:

And of course, Joe Biden himself, in 2015, notes that an “unrelenting” stream of immigration that will ultimately help reduce white, European stock. “That’s not a bad thing,” Biden very cleary articulates.

But thanks to the Buffalo murderer’s manifesto, in which the shooter claimed Communism, left-authoritarianism, and the so-called “great replacement theory” as ideological drivers behind his actions, the weird narrative shift has begun. Tucker Carlson was bold enough to mention the theory in his program as something that the left supports and works hard to implement.

It was about a year ago when Fox News’s Tucker Carlson first eagerly ripped off the mask.

“I know that the left and all the little gatekeepers on Twitter become literally hysterical if you use the term ‘replacement,’ if you suggest for the Democratic Party is trying to replace the current electorate, the voters now casting ballots, with new people, more obedient voters from the Third World,” he said in April 2021. “But they become hysterical because that’s what’s happening, actually.”

So now it’s bad. According to the left-progressive, he has no answer for anyone. Not even himself.

All of these are not meant to suggest that America’s white population is declining. I believe things will continue as they have always, with different races marrying and having children. Around the turn of the century, I feel certain Italians and Irish — battling it out in New York City — were similarly debating the mixing of “races” when those cultures began to blend. It’s not really about race anyway, it’s about the principles undergirding this great experiment in representative democracy. We’ve been here before and — ironically — Old Joe is right: it has been a source of our strength. Where he’s wrong is by thinking a good way to force a “great replacement” is to throw open the Southern border and scatter illegal immigrants into cities they’d like to turn blue. Chaos is often a bad plan. It is the hallmark of desperate situations.

What’s troubling about this whole affair is the cynical attempt by Joe and his party to flip a narrative as they frantically try to “brand” people racists for simply noticing what they (progressives) have espoused as a positive. Because “racist” has become their last, best hope for turning people away from conservatism. And it’s failing them.

So now we’ve got “thought leaders” like Deutsch trotting out old slavery tropes like “branding” (remember “they’re gonna put y’all back in chains!”?).

It’s insulting and, frankly, gross. People are becoming aware of the anti-American tradition of lying to your face when it suits, something that the left enjoys. And there’s also some research that suggests that even minority groups become more conservative when minority growth surges.

Craig and Richeson published a paper that exposed non-Hispanic minorities, e.g. Blacks and Asians in America to data suggesting: (a.) Hispanic population growth is occurring; (b.) People are shifting location, but not necessarily increasing in size of groups (i.e. a control condition). The results show a pattern. Similar to Whites, the results show that racial minority groups shift towards the right as they learn about other racial group’s increasing size. They also tend to be more conservative ideologically. A smaller number of people can be a threat to those who are a numerical majority. People are more likely to support a status-quo that is based on tradition and intergroup hierarchies as a result of this threat.

It’s no surprise they resort to lying. It’s not necessarily the white demographic shrinking that’s really in play here. It’s the shrinking number of progressives.
