Which form of bigotry will the RW ditch first? (assuming they ditch any of them....)


Bear in mind I'm assuming that something akin to partially-sane strategy will materialise after this election. They really can't carry on like this...

1. Racism, particularly against Latinos.

They are the fastest growing voting population in the US and even those that previously supported the republicans are leaving.

But my guess is that they will make efforts to define Latinos as "white".

10. ONLY the racism against latinos, and only as it extends to immigration

This "takers" shit is going to be the party's platform for the next four years (oh bring it on, fools) and since that is an inescapably racist platform, the hatred is not going anywhere

11. Actually Asians are the fastest growing population.

But I think you're right--Latinos would probably be accepted by the GOP earlier than other minorities because they're the largest minority group.

12. I believe you are correct. I misspoke, but I also agree that they will see latinos

as easier to *assimilate*.

This will also give them an excuse to negotiate a reasonable immigration policy.

3. ohhh shit they all hurt too much to even consider losing any of them!

NOOOOO!!! Do not take away my gawd-given right to hate whomever I please!!!1

Seriously, though...Begrudgingly, the first pick will be to soften up to hispanics.

4. They can't continue to denigrate women and survive as a party.

Racism is hidden well enough that they won't need to come out and renounce it.

6. They won't ditch the bigotry. They'll just go back to trying to obfuscate

and hide their bigotry. Listening to the Monday-morning Quarter Backing by various conservative commentators, none see the bigotry in their policies, they think they're just communicating them poorly.

7. None of the above...

Bigotry is encoded in their DNA, they will never give up one iota of any of it.

They've spent the last 60+ years lovingly cultivating it, and now the crop is in full bloom. The sad fact is that it may take another 60 years to begin to unmake this mindset.

The public face of the right wing may play it down, as much as is possible for them (not much), but ditch it? Never!

Bigots never think they are bigots, they just think they are right, hence they don't think they have anything to give up.

22. They're also insanely "insulted" by the word "bigot".

8. If they don't, someone will start a new party.

Pro-small government, low taxes, business-friendly, but without the hatred of women and minorities.

17. Hard to see that. Homophobia's one of their favourite.


Hits all the right buttons.

19. Misogyny

Women are 54% of the voting population. That dwarfs AAs, Latinos, and Asians put together. At some point they have to realize they have lost the social issues,
