Democrat Jim Webb, attuned to aspects of the zeitgeist rapidly forming in white America, says what no GOP contender would ever say (in a non-negative light)… the word “white” (Hat tip: AmRen):
If Jim Webb had his way, the Democratic Party would return to its “Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots” and put a greater focus on “white, working people.”
Webb, the former Democratic senator from Virginia who is entertaining a run 2016 presidential nomination, told NPR Friday morning that his party has not focused enough on white, working class voters in the past elections. In order to be successful in the future, Webb said, that will need to change.
“I think they could do better with white, working people and I think this last election showed that,” Webb said, referencing the 2014 midterms where Republicans took control of the Senate and added more power in the House. “The Democratic Party could do very well to return to its Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Andrew Jackson roots where the focus of the party was making sure that all people who lack a voice in the corridors of power could have one through the elected represented.”
If Webb throws his hat in the Dem primary ring, his ‘implicit whiteness’ platform will rapidly gain steam relative to Hillary. As a result, Hillary’s consultants will find a way for her to co-opt Webb’s implicit whiteness message.
Meanwhile, Rand Paul will be talking about how unfair the justice system is to non-whites, and Jeb Bush will be talking about how diversity is great.
