The Left has long had a solid understanding of the demographic aspect of political warfare. The realization that political power comes from having a hold over major voting blocs is behind their decades’ long promotion of mass migration (legal and illegal) and of demagogic identity politics in minority communities.
Clearly, the strategy has paid major dividends for Democrats. Almost without exception, the Democratic Party dominates wherever there is a high proportion of nonwhites. Their efforts to import large numbers of people who do not understand or care for the constitutional, limited government system upon which America’s Republic was founded has radically transformed the electorate to Democrats’ benefit.
The Left has also been successful at creating new leftist voting blocs and identities. Some identities — such as ethnicity and religion — are preexisting. But the Left has worked assiduously to inculcate the populace in LGBT propaganda and then to form a bloc around sexual identity.
Many conservatives have often asked the question: “Why would someone create their entire identity around their sex life? Isn’t it pathetic to base your entire worldview and understanding of yourself on who you sleep with?”
Of course, it makes no sense from the perspective of actually living a healthy life. But if you’re a leftist who wants to create a new voting bloc that is one-hundred-percent guaranteed to loyally vote for the Democratic Party, then it is a brilliant idea.
The Right has only recently begun to understand the role of demographics and identity in political warfare. While the establishment GOP and “Conservative Inc.” still lag far behind in wanting to do anything about it, those on the dissident right recognize that, to be competitive, the Right must adopt some of the same tactics the Left has so successfully employed to destroy the fabric of the nation.
And, in some cases, the calls from the dissident Right to engage directly in the demographic battle are being heard by at least a handful of policymakers in red states, resulting in action that is proving that demography is destiny and red communities must take a more active role in determining who is being incentivized to settle within their borders.
Specifically, the hard-right turns in places such as Florida and Texas are beginning to have the effect of dissuading rabid leftists from moving there. This is great news for the constitutionalist, Christian, traditionalist movement, for it means there will be fewer numbers of radical leftists working and voting to turn these communities into Marxist hellholes à la California.
After all, one of the poisons that has brought down so many once-sane, conservative states — aside from the aforementioned foreign migration — has been the mass migration of American citizens who possess leftist leanings.
Places such as Colorado, Virginia, New Mexico, Arizona, and even Texas have begun to skew left, becoming more and more purple and even blue due to the many liberal transplants from states such as California and New York.
The phenomenon is now so well-known as to be a cliché: Liberals wreck their states of origin by voting for disastrous Marxist policies. Then they move to red states in search of better jobs, better pay, lower taxes, and safer neighborhoods — only to vote for the same policies that destroyed their home state. Once the new community is ruined, these liberals move on to another red state, like locusts, in a destructive, endless cycle.
Red states and localities do not have to accept that. Some voices on the right have called for an immigration and border policy to keep leftists from ruining their societies. Such a move, while understandable, would prove difficult to implement in a feasible way from state-to-state.
But they can achieve the same finality by intelligently doing what places such as Florida are doing: Make your state so unappealing and intimidating to leftists that they simply do not settle there. And those leftist that are already within the state self-deport.
The NAACP recently issued a travel advisory for Florida, which, under Gov. Ron DeSantis, has passed much legislation riling leftist feathers, such as banning critical race theory, taking aim at LGBT grooming, cracking down on illegal immigration, and enacting permitless concealed carry.
The NAACP warning reads:
Today, the NAACP Board of Directors issued a formal travel advisory for the state of Florida. The travel advisory comes in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.
The formal travel notice states, “Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals. Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color.”
Republican Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), who formerly served as the Sunshine State’s governor, issued a travel advisory of his own, making it clear that Florida is “openly hostile” to “socialists.”
“The state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by Socialists and others who work in the Biden Administration,” Scott wrote, adding:
Let me be clear — any attempts to spread the oppression and poverty that Socialism always brings will be rebuffed by the people of Florida. Travelers should be aware that attempts to spread Socialism in north Florida will fail and be met with laughter and mockery.
Even some Republicans have taken aim at DeSantis for his hard-line stances against the Left, including his ongoing battle with Disney. But they are mistaken.
The way to win is not to appease the Left. That’s what Republicans have attempted all along, and it has failed miserably. The way to win is to push the Christian, constitutionalist platform forward unapologetically and completely.
Then, the leftists who oppose it will either conform or self-deport, thus making the state even more red.
