You know, a ten sided ethnic civil war? Anti-Gnostic notes rather intelligently the following:
It’s hilariously under-remarked how old and white the Democratic party leadership is. The old fossils have gone all in on ethnic identity politics despite the fact that they’re still spouting all that classical Marxism from their college classes about the poor chimney sweeps, the pipefitters’ union, the right of affluent white women to not have children and work at high-octane corporate jobs, etc. QED, those old bromides will come across as pretty stale as the party shifts towards pure redistributive justice for its constituent ethnic tribes. That is why the pundits are hoping and praying that the nice old WASP lady in the pants suit wins the nomination, to postpone the circular firing squad about to break out on the Left.
As the author notes, the Republican Party must trend more self-consciously nationalist, or it will disappear. Otherwise, it is engaged in the so-far-very-unsuccesful tactic of just being a little less liberal and a little more pro-business than the alternative, when its core voters are worried about the literal complexion of their neighborhoods, and their mores, folkways, habits, values, etc.
