Here's my new VDARE.com column.
Currently, the GOP brain trust of professional political consultants is baffled by the question of how the mostly white Republicans can possibly ever again defeat a growing coalition of blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and liberal whites.
Hmmmhmmmhmm ... That's a tough one. Clearly, nobody in the entire global history of conflict has ever figured out a strategy to use against a large but diverse coalition.
Oh, wait, I have heard of a strategy.
It's called Divide and Conquer.
See, the idea is that you encourage the other side to squabble amongst themselves over their conflicting interests.
For example, the Republicans can say to the Democrats,
"Okay, let's talk about a compromise on Racial Preferences and Immigration. Obviously, we can't afford to have both. If you'll stop and think for a moment, you'll see why.
"So, you Democrats go discuss amongst yourselves which one you want -- Racial Preferences or Immigration -- and which one you don't want. Let us know when you make up your minds. It's an important decision, so make sure to hash it out fully. Get input from all interest groups within the Democratic Party. Take your time!"
Of course, what the Democrats want is A) Both and B) For nobody to ever mention either topic in public.
In this decade, GOP leaders like Bush and McCain have been happy to play into Democrats' hands, with the inevitable results.
