George W. Bush: If The GOP Stands For “White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism,” It Is Not Going To Win Anything

I see things very differently.

In my view, the polls show that nativism and immigration restriction are one of the major attractions of the GOP. The same is true of issues like abortion and defending gun rights. In contrast, free trade and globalization, political correctness, tax cuts for millionaires, sucking up to corporations and the corporate media, endless overseas wars and especially open borders and “comprehensive immigration reform” are huge political albatrosses.


“Washington (CNN) – Former President George W. Bush again criticized what he sees as a Republican Party that is not inclusive enough, arguing that if it stands for “White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism, then it’s not going to win anything.”

The comments by the 43rd President — who has recently critiqued the modern GOP with a candor that has been unusual for him in retirement — speak to a rift in the party that has one side urging a doubling-down on former President Donald Trump’s brand of nativist politics and another that wants to return to the more traditional GOP that Bush once led.

Bush made the remark in a podcast interview with The Dispatch last week in response to a question about members of the Republican Party who planned to start a caucus pushing for “Anglo-Saxon political tradition” and Republicans who peddled the falsehood that the 2020 election was stolen. Bush, who said he does not believe the election was stolen, told The Dispatch that while he believes Republicans will eventually govern again, “if the Republican Party stands for exclusivity — you know, it used to be country clubs, now evidently it’s White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism — then it’s not going to win anything.” …”

I would love to test this proposition.

I don’t think that most voters are offended by “White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism.” I think it is college-educated, upper middle class PMCs who have antiracist, cosmopolitan and modernist values and who are socially liberal who are offended by this and those people are Democrats.
