White Americans, he complained, are at fault for continually backing the Republican Party, which in his view persistently embraces “terrible and at times antidemocratic politics and rhetoric.”
In Bacon’s opinion, “the alliance between Republicans and White Americans is by far the most important and problematic dynamic in American politics today.”
After citing statistics revealing general white support for former President Donald Trump, Bacon insisted that the Left call more attention to the white coalition that has largely remained conservative over the past several generations.
In particular, he condemned the terms “Middle America” and “the working class” as common tropes used to hide the fact that white people care about preserving their nation.
He was also upset with “white people in rural areas” for their support of Trump.
In order to prove the racism of whites in America, Bacon proceeded to give a lenthy historical account of white Americans supporting Republicans ever since the advent of the Civil Rights Act and the subsequent stream of pseudo-woke legislation beginning in 1964.
“The alliance between White Americans and the Republican Party has existed for decades,” he wrote.
“The last time a Democratic presidential candidate won the majority of White voters was in 1964, a year before Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Voting Rights Act,” he continued. “The Republican Party spent much of the next three decades courting White Americans, in part, by casting Democrats as too tied to the causes of minorities, particularly Black people and Latino immigrants.”
Contrary to his claims, however, it was the notoriously racist LBJ who drove working-class Americans from the Democrats by strategically pandering to the hegemonic black voting bloc that it previously had tried to suppress.
The party, which historically had comprised an uneasy coalition dominated by Tammany Hall party bosses in the North and the Ku Klux Klan in the South, formed an unholy alliance with black community leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. after seeing its early attempts to fillibuster civil rights legislation fail.
“I’ll have those n****rs voting Democratic for 200 years,” Johnson reportedly told two state governors during a flight aboard Air Force One.
Many of the former racists and segregationists, including Sen. Robert Byrd and remained with the party in the decades that followed, despite efforts by the Left to disavow its own history.
President Joe Biden grew sentimental when discussing them during the 2020 presidential campaign.
But conservatives like Ronald Reagan—who had begun his life as a Democrat—prominently abandoned the party once it became clear that its radical identity politics no longer aligned with the needs of average Americans.
“I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic Party left me,” Reagan famously said.
Democrats are now panicking, however, as many nonwhite voters and other members of their minority coalition are beginning to jump ship with a party that has become too extreme for even them.
