LILY-WHITE MOVEMENT.The "lily-white" movement began within the Republican party after the Civil War. From the first days of Reconstruction, a fight developed not only in Texas but across the South between White and Black factions for control of the newly formed party. As White GOP leaders sought "respectability" among Southern voters and a conviction grew that continued "black and tan" involvement thwarted expansion of the party, the lily-white Republicans began an organized effort to drive Blacks from positions of party leadership. Though Texas Blacks appealed to Northern party managers to halt the movement, lily-whiteism flourished because Republican presidents after 1865 wanted approval from the Southern White masses. The term lily-white apparently originated at the 1888 Republican state convention in Fort Worth, when a group of Whites attempted to expel a number of black and tan delegates. Norris Wright Cuney, the Black Texas leader who controlled the state party from 1883 until his death in 1896, promptly labeled the insurgents "lily-whites," and the term was soon applied to similar groups throughout the South.

From an American Renaissance article about mainstream conservatives who want to get rid of the racists in the GOP:

Both columns highlight the conservative movement's identity crisis. Mr. Carney believes conservatives should submit fully to the Left's rules on race. Mr. Douthat thinks conservatives should purge racists but also insist that some of their ideas aren't racist. Both believe a multi-racial conservative movement is possible. Mr. Carney thinks it will come from checking white privilege and fighting systemic racism. Mr. Douthat proposes a racially-sensitive "pan-ethnic" populism.
None of this is new. For decades, conservatives have concocted futile strategies to win over non-whites. Jack Kemp wanted economic opportunity zones. George W. Bush's team preached "compassionate conservatism." Those ideas didn't work; these new ones won't work either.
Most white Americans are Republicans. Most conservatives are white. This makes Republicans and conservatives deeply uncomfortable. They refuse to fight for white interests. Yet if the GOP and the "conservative movement" want to survive, they must advance white interests. They have no other constituency. They can grovel before the Left all they want, but most non-whites will never join them.

The 1864 National Union National Convention was the United States presidential nominating convention of the National Union Party, which was a name adopted by the main faction of the Republican Party in a coalition with many, if not most, War Democrats after some Republicans and War Democrats nominated John C. Frémont over Lincoln.

Andrew Johnson, the Military Governor of Tennessee, was named as Lincoln's running-mate...

I'd be more than happy to hand over our dumbest, reddest states to these idiots and then deporting their followers to them.  They can then create the wonderful little fascist white utopia of their dreams, marry their 12 year old sisters to their heart's content, crank out ten times as many inbred babies as they could ever hope to feed and collapse into an amazingly entertaining trainwreck that, unlike today, would be forever cut off from blue-state funding and aid to bail them out of their own mess.

We could stand high upon our southern wall and watch as they scramble around and murder each other for the last precious cans of Budweiser, ramming their monster trucks into each other in an orgy of glorious self-destruction with more guns than WW2 had to offer.  And when the smoke is clear and the last Jebban has overdosed on meth we can finally... y'know what, screw that.  Let's not recolonize it.  Leave those dumps for of wilderness that humans were never meant to live in as a nature preserve.  Their bodies can be the fertilizer.

These analyses always ignore a huge reality: the growing minority populations in the US are NOT homogeneous in voting, like one can *generally* paint African Americans as reliably MASSIVE (by percentage) Democratic supporters. It's like (white) poli-sci kids looked at one demographic and extrapolated it across all non-white people.

Some of these groups quite LIKE the features of the GOP, even with people who are the same skin color, speak the same language, and practice the same religion. Or are even from the same homeland.

GOP will just maintain that the white supremacists in the party are few and merely misguided individuals. The primary process will continue to weed out the lesser racists and replace them with the true believers in White Nationalism.

There would be an open ethnic cleansing and deportation of red-state POCs if they did. And if it's a red state that has nuclear missile silos those will be used against the blue-states when red-state fiscal policies inevitably fail and they get desperate. They'd rather watch the whole world burn and feel superior than accept POCs, gays and non-Christians as equals.

True, but the White Nationalists simply don't want non-Whites in the party. They don't even like the non-racist Whites in the party.

There was a lot of anger directed at the Rockefeller wing in the 1964 primaries. Or more recently, towards JEB "Please clap!" Bush in 2016, because he married a woman who was born in Mexico.

And the racists never cared about minority voters who wanted to join the party.

Ike won 39% of the Black vote in '56. MLK Jr. have his "Give us the ballot" speech during the first Match on Washington in '57. A few months later, Buckley wrote "Why the South Must Prevail," in National(ist) Review:

"The great majority of the Negroes of the South who do not vote do not care to vote, and would not know for what to vote if they could."

Even at a time when they could have made a strong case for welcoming Black voters into the party, the passionately conservative wing rejected them, in favor of segregationists.

From the article:

"One-third of the people that got elected to the House of Representatives deny the results of the 2020 election," James continued. "People taking over school boards and talking about the degeneracy that is being pushed in schools. We have parts of the nation talking about secession, talking about banning gay marriage and banning contraceptives."

You'd think that some of the Republicans who actually use contraceptives would be concerned about these scumbags infiltrating their party...

The GOP is certainly becoming THE place for Fascists to hang their hats. And I dunno if 'infiltrate' is a great word for 'being invited in to take their shoes off and get comfy.' I mean it sounds cool and all, but the GOP has been embracing a Fascist line for a while now. Willingly. And with great verve and vigor. Republicans have had enough of this 'democracy crap.' They've done the numbers game, and they are either going to have to change how they operate and who they appeal to, or they're going to have to strip voting rights and lock the nation down, and it's fairly obvious what path to 'victory' they've chosen.

The racists were invited into the party, even though Republicans were in denial about it while extending the invitation...

As the Birmingham newspaperman John Temple Graves put it in heralding an ideological party realignment, "an obstacle in the path of this national political line-up is the impression given a great many Americans that the States' Rights movement in the South is nothing but race hate in political action, and is a sort of political first cousin to the Klan."  Deracializing the language of southern conservatism - and of opposition to civil rights legislation in general -- was a prerequisite for realignment. "The South must be led by men less identified with the Negro question and more identified with the national revolt against federalism in general," he wrote. Taftite Republicans were partners in this rhetorical project. RNC Chairman Guy Gabrielson startled many political observers in the early 1950s by making direct appeals to the Dixiecrats, but he did so on race-neutral ideological grounds. "Our friends call themselves States' Righters and we call ourselves Republicans," he declared in Alabama in 1952. "But they oppose corruption and so do we ... The Dixiecrat Party believes in states' rights. That's what the Republican Party believes in." Mundt even endorsed white southerners' own framing of their opposition to federal action on civil rights, denying racist intent altogether. "Southerners have no desire to hold the Negro down," he insisted. "They want to promote programs in an area where by evolution and education they must work out a harmonious adjustment."

I did the Ancestry DNA thing and someone asked me what countries I was from.  I said, "all the really white ones".   A lot of these Nazis do it too but many have "embarrassing" DNA in their results so they can't join the little Nazi clubs that require a pure white bloodline.  Fortunately for them, there are services that will produce custom DNA results so they prove how white they are.  Much easier than Hitler blowing up the entire town his Jewish grandmother was from to hide that little embarrassment.
