NIXON ’68; TRUMP ’20: Rod Dreher on RNC’s new “Squad Goals: Anarchy” ad. “Note to readers — and let this be an evergreen — my quoting or posting an ad for any candidate or cause does NOT mean that I support that candidate or cause. I’m ‘quoting’ this ad here because it tells us a lot about the kind of campaign the Republicans are going to run in 2020:”

As Dreher writes (updating his post to admit he accidentally quoted Nixon’s ’72 slogan), “Golly, 2020 is gonna be lit. Trump is going to run as Nixon ’68, positioning the Democrats as the party of ‘acid, amnesty, and abortion.’ It lacks the alliteration of Tricky Dick’s line, but ‘open borders, socialism, and anarchy’ has a beat, and you can dance to it. Check out this 1968 Nixon campaign ad:”

Read the whole thing. As in ’68, all the Democrats have to do is not be crazy, and they can’t even do that.™
