  •  GOP is also party of white (male) nationalism. (9+ / 0-)

    By white nationalism I don't mean white supremcy, nor hard core Jim Crow apartheid.

    For gop white nationalism is about establishing an ethnic identity through skin color and in some measure heritage from Western European roots. Ironically, white nationalism accepts America as a multi-cultural nation in many ways--it simply is an effort to make a certain class the most dominate--not to get rid of the other groups.

    And with that identity is a group identification used to combat the competitive cultural and economic pressures of other groups in America.  In this election cycle the GOP established the lines which now even rejects white women as being automatically an acceptable member.  

    Even if the GOP made huge policy changes I doubt that non-white minorities would join without the GOP tearing out something that defines them so deeply.
