They were welcomed by NIXON, REAGAN, et al. because it was the only way to win. Roger Ailes called it “the Southern Strategy”. Hijacked? More like handed the keys and pointed directly at the cliff. AFTER, I might add, they were rejected by the Democrats.
I used the word hijack from the perspective of progressive Republicans like Dwight Eisenhower, Theodore Roosevelt, Hiram Johnson, Robert La Follette, et cetera. These Republicans did not welcome the “Southern Strategy”.
Before I’d call them Democrats or Republicans I’d call them what they are Confederates. They promised to get back at Lincoln and by hijacking his political party they have their revenge.
