muh southern strategy

BunnyJinx

Nixon fooled the country by claiming he's republican (liberal) but instead became a conservative (southern strategy). The southern US/bible belt were democrat(conservative) stronghold at the time, however they didn't like where the democrats were going. The last few democrat presidents advocated for liberal policies. This means giving civil rights to women, children, blacks, immigrants. Something the south bible belt hated. The reason democrats were going liberal was because republicans were liberal and they were popular.

The reason democrats were going liberal was because

They had sold out the White working class, simply assuming they'd do whatever the Dems told them and were now backing every fringe kook element in the U.S.; feminists, Black radicals, Mexican migrants, homosexuals, etc.

The result was a popular back-lash against liberalism and the Dems and had Nixon not gotten wrapped up in Watergate, he would have gotten two full terms and been succeded by another Rep (and Reagan was elected after Carter's single term anyway).

It was the Dems arrogance and openly anti-American attitude that created the Conservative Republican movement.

Probably they were a bigger boon to the lower classes while the middle class, as it always must, footed the bill. Nixon was a man elected by the middle classes.
The middle class in this country still has a sort of pride that hesitates to take what hasn't been worked for.
Social security was implemented by FDR. Medicare/Medicaid was added by Lyndon Johnson.
And this proves that their instincts were right. We're in the process of importing an entire classes of people in order to keep the whole ponzi scheme going.

Which the White working class supported but in the 1960s, the Dems took that support for granted and started supporting kooks and "Blame America!" types, which pissed off regular working class Americans.

basically the same thing as the 2016 election

A very similar situation, the hippies of the 1960s were the founders of today SJWs and just as today, many average Americans had enough of their shit.

The Mainstream Media likes to portray the 60s counter culture as a hip and cool movement supported by all Americans but that simply wasn’t the case.

Conservatism always existed. In the form of southern democrats.

And when the Dem threw their support behind not only desegregation but out-and-out bullshit like forced bussing (50 year old here, who as a little kid was threatened with just that) those conservative Dems turned around and voted Rep.

Yes how dare they end Jim crow and treat blacks as human.

Yes, how dare White people be offended by being called slavering racists and told they should pay out the ass for Black welfare, while Blacks mug them and rob their homes and the cops won’t do shit about it…

This doesn't work when both parties are the same. What Nixon promised, what Reagan promised was more "state's right" to police the blacks and lock them up/shoot them/segregate again.

This is why its called the southern strategy.

It doesn’t matter what the party calls itself, it’s the policies they promote that matter and the Reps and Dems were not the same (at least on many issues).

The forced bussing issue is a perfect example of the derangement of the Dems in the 1970s and how they abandoned the White working class.

I remember being in 1st or 2nd grade and having the day off from school, as all the parents had flipped their shit over a proposed plan to ship use White kids from 95% White city of Warren MI to the 80% Black city of Detroit.

I went with my dad down to the elementary (he worked nights, mom days) where there were a 100 or so moms on the front lawn freaking out and screaming at school officials that their kids “weren’t going to Detroit so some niggers can be shipped up here!”

It was [this] close to a riot breaking out.

I don’t blame then at all, in fact I thank them, as I was going to be one of those kids getting shipped off to who the fuck knows where in Detroit.

But it illustrates the absolute insanity of the Dems in the 70s, that they’d try and force this on Americans and still expect them to vote Dem.

As I mentioned up-thread, () I was a little kid and didn’t really know what was going on but had it happened, it definitely would have been a horrible experience.

My neighbor across the street is 5-6 years older than me and his family didn’t GTFO out of Detroit until 1980 or so and he said he was getting beaten up almost every day, as he was one of the few White kids in his school.

As you can imagine, this made him virulently racist…

I will never understand how someone can have so little self-awareness that they can't see the extent of their own hypocrisy. Like, do you EVER think to yourself "maybe I'm not really for state's rights after all... maybe I just hate niggers?" I really just don't understand conservitards I guess.

1936
Convenient timing. When the New Deal was announced, FDR won the support of Blacks. The President before him was Hoover, racist who would not even want to be in a picture with a Black. He was a republican. B-but you told me blacks voted republican and there was a southern shift in party. He was a republican, yet during his time, the republicans were mainly the "passive" party. The demagogue was the southern democratic party and the KKK/anti-black movement. FDR(from New York) effectively did a 360 on the racial policies that democrats from the south enacted, he effectively won over the Blacks and said to them "let me change your life for the better." They voted for him. He gave them support with the New Deal, set up social security, enacted a fair employment laws. Lyndon Johnson, a democrat, after FDR died, put in place a stronger medicare/medicaid package, effectively made African Americans into an equal citizen of the law by signing the civil rights act.

This is what drove the southern democrats mad.
