Lauren Southern, in this linked video, nails it on the head when it comes to many in the GOP and the doublethink and disingenuousness of race and politics.
I would add this group as well that many on the right think is just peachy but would eschew one representing whites/Europeans etc.

At the heart of Cultural Marxism is Identity Politics. Herbert Marcuse,of the Frankfurt School, came to prominence in the 1960s. He believed that America’s Constitution is being used to oppress minorities. For him, it is the struggle between the oppressed minority and the oppressors (a twist on the Classical Marxist haves vs the have-nots). Under the Marxist umbrella is Social Justice, Feminism, Neo-progressivism, and Post-colonialism. Be it gender, sexual orientation, family, race, culture or religion, every aspect of a persons identity is to be questioned. Every norm of society is to be challenged. Instead of the working class, it has become minorities. Majority groups have become the privileged and oppressive. The minority groups have become the unprivileged and oppressed. Heterosexuals are oppressive. Whites are oppressiveespecially white men. Christians are oppressive. So, if heterosexuals are oppressive, then encourage other forms of sexuality. If whites are oppressive, then promote diversity. If Christianity is oppressive, then promote Islam. It goes on and on, using the Marxist model, into a morass of continuous warfare between ever more narrowly defined groups of offended minorities. This is the demon of Identity Politics that has been shoved down our throats.
With this philosophy, a method has been devised to send nations into a cycle of self-destruction. Out of that chaos will emerge the ruling elite to bring the masses to the Utopian Age which is actually a facade for the totalitarian state.
5 minutes in and she had yet to make a point or get on with it.
She makes a point whether you agree with it or not. She makes a very valid point.
What was it?
Back door attack on Candace Owens.
I don’t particularly like to watch vids because the information therein can be absorbed much more quickly from print. Wen I do go to one, if it spends the first five minutes telling me what it will be talking about I know it is a waste of time and don’t waste any more.
Actually it wasn’t. Can you argue the point? Turning Point and the GOP engages in identity politics?
bump for later
