TNR: The Radical Young Intellectuals Who Want to Take Over the American Right

What do you think of the “New Right”?

In my view, there are two distinct “New Rights.” There is the very online, demographically negligible, conservative elite version. These people range from the Catholic integralists to the Nietzschean BAPists. They are overwhelmingly college graduates from Blue states and skew toward being Jewish or Catholic in background. They are sincerely radical and have somewhat similar views to our own. You can find these people hanging out with Josh Hawley, Rachel Bovard and Josh Hammer at NatCon II.

At the other end, you have White people in rural areas, small towns and working class suburbs who are concentrated in the South and Midwest, but who can be found in varying degrees across the country. These people are also extremely radical, but skew rural, small town and Protestant. They have modest incomes and did not typically graduate from college. They have never heard of Friedrich Nietzsche or BAP or Catholic integralism. It is the same division that exists in a different form between conservative elites who tend to be Jews and Catholics and the conservative base who are Heartland Protestants.

Back in 2008, Democrats used to be much more competitive in small towns and rural areas with White working class voters who are populists on economics. Iowa and Ohio were swing states. Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania were safe Blue Wall states. Democrats under Barack Obama had a near super majority in the House and Senate in 2008. The White socially conservative, economically populist rural and small town Heartland Democrat and Independent has been vanishing and migrating into the GOP which has changed its internal demographic composition resulting in “New Right” voters who are the opposite of Reaganites on economics. “Fusionism” no longer works because the electorate changed.

The coastal shitlibs have made the Democratic brand too toxic in rural and small town America which is why you see candidates like Glenn Youngkin winning over 80% of the vote in these places. Former Gov. Steve Bullock tried to explain this in the New York Times this morning.
