Julian Assange Goes 14/88 On Twitter


1/ What neither side of US politics wants to admit: the promotion of identity politics combined with the declining white super majority

2/ has led to turbo charged white identity politics. Since Dems catered for non-white identity politics, Trump and the GOP took hold of

3/ white identity politics. Whites are still over 60% of the voting population. As long as Democrats pander to identity politics the GOP

4/ will be able to herd whites into supporting it. It seems too late for the Democrats to disengage with identity politics. So

5/ GOP will continue to market itself (sotto voce) as the party of whites. Democrats will be out of most offices until whites

6/ lose their majority. That won’t be for decades. Most countries that do not have a 70%+ super majority ethnic group have ethnicized

7/ electoral politics. For example in Malaysia where majority Malays correspond to whites in the US context. (link: https://muse.jhu.edu/article/628462) muse.jhu.edu/article/628462

8/ GOP equivalent will become like Barisan National in Malaysia and win the majority of offices for decades.

9/ Other multi-racial societies solve this problem by removing first past the post voting and parliamentary or presidential majoritarianism.

10/ Here’s Singapore’s long term prime minister Lee Kuan Yew
