I finally understand these people.
Allow me to explain why I disagree with them.
If you look at the political science on who is actually pro-White in America, it is negatively correlated with income and financial stability. There are pro-White Democrats, Independents and Republicans because the “White positive sphere” is closer to the Center of the electorate. In contrast, the GOP is wealthier and represents the respectable White middle class and upper middle class. The “White positive sphere” is more downscale, more cynical and disengaged and more Independent than Republican.
The bulk of them are not on the Right. The stratum of the electorate that is White and ethnocentric, nationalist and populist, against political correctness, mass immigration, globalism and endless wars is concentrated in the Center of the electorate. The Pew Research Center has tracked them for over thirty years as the “Embittered” or “Disaffected” or “Hard-Pressed Skeptics” or “Market Skeptic Republicans” swath of the electorate. The people who believe in global free trade, corporate tax cuts, endless wars, mass immigration, MIGA, obsequious groveling to non-Whites and most recently open celebration of homosexuality, however, are on the Right. Those groups are the “Core Conservatives” and the “New Era Enterprisers.” They are social liberals who believe in free market economics.
I’m a populist voter in the middle of the electorate:
What is the Dissident Right?
It is paleocons who desperately want to be accepted by the mainstream Right and the GOP. They are “dissidents” in the sense that other Republicans look down on them as racists, take them for granted and do nothing for them. They aren’t even let in the building these days at CPAC.
I constantly hear from the Dissident Right that we got to “win over the normies.” But who are the “normies” that they are trying to win over though? The Boomers out there racing their Trump boats? The College Republicans climbing the career ladder at Turning Point USA? Presumably, they mean conservatives and Republicans, which means the “New Era Enterprisers” and “Country First Conservatives” and “Core Conservatives” who are respectively 11%, 6% and 13% of the adult population. The Market Skeptic Republicans who agree with our core values are 12% of the adult population but 10% of the politically engaged. “Core Conservatives” are 13% of the population but 20% of the politically engaged and this imbalance of punching above their weight is the root of the problem.
The only group on the Right which is somewhat in sync with our values and beliefs are the “Country First Conservatives.” They are 6% of the adult population. There are twice as many of us as them. The Republican Party is dominated by the “Core Conservatives” who are 13% of the population. They are the group who continue to set the message and agenda which repeatedly loses elections. Empowering them accomplishes nothing because THEY DON’T believe in being White positive, restricting immigration, ending globalization, social conservatism, focusing on domestic problems, etc. They certainly DON’T believe in doing anything of substance for the struggling working class.
15% of White Americans are what Jason would describe as White positive. 12% of Americans are Market Skeptic Republicans. These two groups are respectively an even larger share of the right-leaning electorate. Therefore, the solution ISN’T so much a problem of “redpilling” normies as it is a matter of organization. We need to start building our own institutions which are explicitly pro-White and moderate and populist on economics in the Center of the electorate. We tried and failed to pull the Right toward the Center with Trump. They reverted to mainstream conservatism and lost the 2020 election as a result by pandering to legions of imaginary based blacks with cringe programs like the Platinum Plan.
We don’t need paleocons standing outside CPAC or Turning Point USA doing livestreams in the parking lot. We don’t need paleocons trying to sell mainstream conservatism to our community. We need to start organizing White positive people in the Center of the electorate who make less than $100,000 a year who agree with our values, beliefs and interests and who aren’t represented by the GOP.
There are millions of White non-voters under 65-years-old. There are plenty of White working class people who don’t like what the GOP is selling them and have tuned out of mainstream politics. “The White positive sphere” is also significantly overrepresented in this group.
