The Significance of the Failed ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Caucus

Adam Serwer: “The 2020 election showed that the Republican Party could embrace conservative positions, even on immigration, and still appeal to Latino voters.”

“But the ideological predilections of Anglo-Saxonism definitionally exclude that part of the Republican base, sending a clear message that they and other voters of color are unwelcome in the party, and threatening those electoral gains. They replace a message of restriction, or even law and order, with one rooted in racial purity.”

“McCarthy’s forceful condemnation of that message is one small example of how a more diverse base of voters can work as a check against bigotry within a political party, even if it’s only a single step in the right direction, against weak actors it takes little courage to condemn.”
