This desire [of conservatives] to make a deal is why Progressives have run wild in American politics, especially over the last few decades. Their opponents in every election are white civic nationalist types, who are always willing to accept the results of the election and work with the other side on a good deal. … They would win an election and then cut a deal with the Left that was a complete sellout. …
Progressives, in contrast, use this willingness to do a deal to ram their agenda through when they win. When they lose, they use the same intransigence to bottle up any effort of the winners to push through their agenda. …
The question that has been on the minds of dissidents for a long time is when will people wake up to this reality? When will those civic nationalists and good government types realize that they can never bargain in good faith with the other side, because the other side never bargains in good faith? Unless and until the good citizen accepts the cynicism of the Left, not necessarily embrace it, but just accept it, elections will always be heads the Left wins, tails the Right loses. …
Demographics and racial prejudice could get ugly:
What happens when most white people figure out that the other side will never cut a deal with them? There will always be suckers, who never give up hope, but what happens when the majority of whites realize they can never make a deal with their opponents? How long before this realization leads to the conclusion that they can never live in the same country as their opponents, because their opponents hate them and want them dead?
Most likely, the typical white person looks at the madness engulfing the political class and thinks the fever is bound to break soon. Maybe Trump winning in 2020 or the Democrats nominating a shrill crank like Warren will break the spell. Older folks talk about how the 1960’s eventually burned itself out. Lots of normal white people think something similar will happen this time. What if it doesn’t or what if whites simply get tired of waiting for their opponents to snap out of their rage?
Remember when females were a minority at universities, and feminists demanded equal numbers? More girls were good, boys were bad. Well ok, when it gets to 50:50 the bias and prejudice and “affirmative action” will stop.
Nope. It became 50-50. No change in policy or rhetoric. Now it’s 60% female and 40% male, and still no changes in rhetoric or policies — girls good and are encouraged, boys bad and are discouraged. Now of course they wheel out the excuses, like that girls are more suited to university because they are more conscientious or something. More equal. But note the complete lack of calls for equality. There is no fairness.
You think it’s going to be any different with whites and diversity? Like men, whites will be demonized by the left and the bureaucracy/academia/media long after they are a minority — because the left draws its electoral support from non-white identity groups. The anti-white racism and the anti-male sexism from the left and their fellow travelers is going to continue … until when? It’s tribal.
It’s just about power. The sort of nonsense that a society can only engage in when it thinks it has no enemies or rivals. Merit and effectiveness can take a back seat because now the left’s tribes are grabbing all the goodies for themselves.
