      What happened to this Republican party?

      The business wing of the GOP managed to claw their way back into power after being discredited temporarily by the depression.

      America has been on a downward spiral ever since.

      it was taken over by its most right-wing faction in 1980, and since then all other factions have been successively more and more marginalized and expelled from the party

          Reagan and his allies, followers and successors are right wing

          The right wing embraced the neocons, with an alliance largely built on (1) a desire for military strength and (2) anti-communism, but the neocons weren’t the dominant faction in Republican Party politics; they just ran the foreign policy show

              The right wing of the Republican Party has dominated it since the 1980s, to a continually increasing extent

                If your definition of "right wing" are "war hawks" and necons are just war hawks from the democrat party then what’s your point?

                  My definition of "right wing" is not "war hawks". Although the right wing of the Republican Party was generally hawkish in the 80s-00s period, that’s not their defining characteristic.

                  I don’t think that neocons ran the Republican Party; I think the right wing ran the Republican Party.

                  any party can have a right wing, it just has to be right wing compared to the rest of that party, not universally and objectively right wing by whatever line in the sand you want to draw

            Anon, it’s not 2004 anymore. Populists control the GOP. Just look at what they’re doing to Liz Cheney – and she’s practically neocon royalty, yet she has zero power.

              They certainly control the right-wing media, I’ll give you that. But it’s really only fringe showboaters who are like that. Most understand that military spending keeps their constitutents happy

              Blacks are the biggest hypocrites in the world when it comes to voting

              They seem incoherent in what they want. At least the Tea Party had some core messages and beliefs, even if it was astro-turfed.

            Unions in the US only ever served to keep minorities out of a job. That’s why after civil rights there were dismantled by the court system

              >Operation Dixie was conceived because of a problem that may sound familiar to many today: companies were shifting their operations from the heavily unionized North and Midwest to the South, where unionism had comparatively not taken hold. The predominant focus of the campaign was on the burgeoning textile industry in the South, which stretched largely from the Carolinas through Alabama, as well as the wood products industry. The CIO committed 250 organizers and around $1 million in 1946 (about $12 million in 2013) to set about attacking the largest firms and the most recalcitrant workers within those firms. The organizers came from across the industrial spectrum, and the citizens’ committees were surprisingly diverse for the times, including workers from across the racial barrier, religious leaders, and recent veterans of World War II. It was a campaign that held much promise, and a victory in Operation Dixie would go a long way towards building a powerful labor movement in every corner of America. However, while there were some successes in organizing tobacco workers and workers in other smaller industries, the effort to unionize the textile and wood products industries were largely dead by the end of 1946.

            Both parts of the same machine.

            The woke left distracts everyone from economic issues, the identarian right comes along to "rebel" against the woke left by doing what the Fortune 500 wants.

            The /poo/scrotes understand perfectly well that BLM isn’t a real rebellion, but they don’t understand that they’re another part of the same plan.

            No one is stopping "exploited american workers" from forming a union – or at least not to the same extent that they were in the ’30s or earlier
            >but Amazon forces new employees to watch anti-union "training" videos!
            Mine owners were openly hiring criminals to murder union organizers in the 1920s, the struggles of union organizers now are nothing compared to what their great-great-grandparents would’ve put up with

                Corporations don’t even need anti-union propaganda to prevent americans from unionizing, the fact is the only jobs left shitty enough to warrant unions are the ones that no one wants to be stuck working in for the rest of their life.

                    Meme belief. No one pushed the fuck trades go to college meme harder than tradesmen themselves. 90% of the people who simp for trade work have never worked it.

                      I went to college, went to grad school, and am working a blue collar job until I land a better one. It sucks but it sucked less in the union run one.

                    not this freaking garden gnome meme again. drive down to your local labor ready (or any temp work agency). those places are PACKED with hundreds of people (of all races) willing to do ANY job for the shittiest pay imaginable.

      So what, are you implying the simple fact that one irrelevant union one time that ended up failing had some black members and that makes all unions by association "not racist"?

      There was a time when the Republican Party was pro-union, pro-workers rights, pro-taxing the rich, pro-public works projects, and against international free trade. What happened? Today you’d get called a "communist" if you even suggested we go back. Eisenhower would get called a "commie" by Glenn Beck if he was around today. freaking Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater ruined the Republican Party and American politics forever. 🙁

          Eisenhower was a populist, not a leftist. Although in a way that makes him left wing when compared to the dominate forces in each party it doesn’t at that point in history. He was a moderate, don’t know what that other anon is talking about

      At around this time, thousands of unions/communist parties/hollywood actors/ect were openly exposed as being funded by Moscow itself. Political Subversion, so to speak.

      People say this shit is due to Reagan but the "fuck communism" started ever since the Soviets openly subverted academia and unions during the 1960-1970’s. The McCarthy trials despite people calling them shizo trials actually exposed a lot of Hollywood financial connections to Moscow. At around this time as well, Mao enacted his "Great walk forward" and starved 20-50million to death, and pictures of mobs destroying ancient chinese traditon started coming out of Chinkland. Plus the Khmer Rouge, and other violent commie insurrections happened.

      As a consequence, everything related to socialism became associated with foreign interference and mass starvation, in the same way the Nazis permanently made nationalism and national sovereignty of any kind look bad in Europe.

      It was nothing but a inconvenient stopgap from their usual, WASPish "fuck the poor" stance, forced however to concede to the New Deal consensus ramped up their ass by F "biggest D." Roosevelt and which would continue throughout the post-war period up until the shareholders revolt of the 1970s presaged the Carter/Reagan counter-revolution against labor.

      The real issues that aren’t being talked about are curbing Federal expansion, cutting the size of government, reigning in misuse of the commerce clause and other such things, dismantling/reigning in alphabet agencies, etc. BLM and its ilk are a distraction from that.
