Tucker Carlson on Identity Politics: The president doubled-down on both his statements and his response to the deadly Charlottesville riot, insisting he needed to know the facts and that both Neo-Nazis and the Alt-Left were violent. Does he have a point?

Tucker Carlson interviewed John Daniel Davidson, Senior Correspondent of The Federalist, says, “If you want to see where tearing down statues will get you, look at China’s cultural revolution where they tore down statues and temples. Davidson said this is not about the Confederacy, it’s not about the Civil War, this is about political power, and it’s about a small group of people on the left trying to exert outside influence on American politics by following the footsteps of Mao, of the armed thugs of the Myanmar Republic, of the Taliban … these are tactics that are well known.” Davidson said, “You start by tearing down statues and burning books, and eventually you go after people.”

Davidson said, “If you push identity politics, eventually you get around to identity politics for white people, which is a dangerous thing in a country that has a huge white majority. This is why the left, who had been sowing these seed of what’s happening now for a long time. Are they surprise that eventually some white people are going to say, ‘yeah, let’s do identity politics’?”

Davidson said, “America is not about ethnicity, it’s not about national origin; it’s about creed (a set of beliefs or aims that guide someone’s actions).”

The Federalist is an English-language online magazine that covers politics, policy, culture, and religion. The Federalist has been described as influential in conservative and libertarian circles.

The site was co-founded by Ben Domenech and Sean Davis and launched in September 2013. Domenech serves as publisher of The Federalist, and has said the site is dedicated to discussing “the philosophical underpinnings of the day’s debate” instead of focusing on what he calls “the horserace or the personalities.”

IDENTITY POLITICS

Arlingtoncardinal.com/identitypolitics

Identity politics, also known as identitarian politics, refers to political positions based on the interests and perspectives of social groups with which people identify.

Identity politics includes the ways in which people’s politics may be shaped by aspects of their identity through loosely correlated social organizations. Examples include social organizations based on age, religion, social class or caste, culture, dialect, disability, education, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, generation, occupation, profession, race, political party affiliation, sexual orientation, settlement, urban and rural habitation, and veteran status.

Not all members of any given group are involved in identity politics. Identity politics are used by minority and civil rights organizations to form a coalition with members of the majority.

The term identity politics came into being during the second half of the 20th century, especially the African-American Civil Rights Era.

Second wave feminism, Black Civil Rights in the U.S., gay and lesbian liberation, and the American Indian movements, rose out of claims about the injustices done to particular social groups. These social movements are undergirded by and foster a philosophical body of literature that takes up questions about the nature, origin and futures of the identities being defended.
