Democrats Shocked, Shocked to Learn One Republican Wanted to Win

The U.S. government fanatically collects data on some identity categories, such as non-Hispanic whites, Hispanics, and blacks. So we are, say, lectured that whites must pay reparations for blacks due to having much higher average net worths, which proves White Privilege.

On the other hand, Jewish organizations shot down in 1956 a Census Bureau Proposal to allow Jews to self-identify on the 1960 Census. So, we never ever hear about Jewish average net worth. It’s a mystery! Why would you want to know about that? And, therefore, we don’t hear about Jewish Privilege.

Similarly, the U.S. government collects very little data on citizenship, so we never hear much about it. And Democrats very much want to keep it that way.

From the New York Times:

Deceased G.O.P. Strategist’s Hard Drives Reveal New Details on the Census Citizenship Question

Thomas B. Hofeller, a leading Republican strategist, died in August and left a trove of computer files containing evidence that could now be relevant in a Supreme Court case.

WASHINGTON — Thomas B. Hofeller achieved near-mythic status in the Republican Party as the Michelangelo of gerrymandering, the architect of partisan political maps that cemented the party’s dominance across the country.

But after he died last summer, his estranged daughter discovered hard drives in her father’s home that revealed something else: Mr. Hofeller had played a crucial role in the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. …

Mr. Hofeller’s exhaustive analysis of Texas state legislative districts concluded that such maps “would be advantageous to Republicans and non-Hispanic whites,” and would dilute the political power of the state’s Hispanics.

And you can’t have that! The only allowable reasons for the Executive branch doing anything are to help non-whites and Democrats.
