We have two parties: an accountable governance party, and a white people's party.

All the hypocricy and dishonesty of the GOP is, in the end, about disguising and rationalizing their racism, sexism, Christian dominionism, and other deplorable bigotries. And of these, the racism is the most important -- the biggest slice of the deplorable pie.

Why support low taxes and small government? Because it keeps property in white hands. Why do Republicans vote in favor of enriching their bosses at their own expense? Because a benefit to the bosses is a benefit to white people. Why do they refuse to accept any curbs on private armament? So that white people will be confident that they have more guns than nonwhite people. Why a war on drugs? To punish nonwhite people, and the white people who hang out with them. Why do they attack abortion? To punish independent women, especially nonwhite ones. And why do they turn a blind eye to the January 6 insurrection? Because it was an attempt to seize power for white people, and the lie about illegal or invalid votes was just a public way of saying that they don't think nonwhite votes should be counted.

Every hateful and abusive policy that the GOP has been pushing exists because it's a wedge to separate white Christian conservatives from the rest of the populace, and support the former while punishing the latter.
