Both Goldwater and Nixon were said to be "not personally racist" as though it's somehow better. They used their racist strategies anyway, which is worse for being cynical. The conservative "conscience" is a thing of convenience, arrogance, presumption and greed.
They are deserving by definition. Their superiority is assumed. After decades of covert racism the overt faction, who always understood the insinuations and innuendo, are creeping out of their caves, exposing what was always there. At least these thugs are sincere.
Here's where it has gotten us:
Congress is besieged by Kochsuckers.
The Supreme Court is infected by hacks.
The Presidency is infested by a goon.
Being "not personally racist" isn't a good thing when racist tactics are employed. It's morally corrosive. And so now we have a system that is horrifically racist, bigoted, aggressive and cruel and nobody owns it. Our society is dissociative and in denial about what we are.
Relatively few people are personally racist but the society is racist as hell.
