As I have repeatedly tried to point out, US rightists are Westerners, not Americans. The latest evidence of this is the following Homo Hubris RNC closing songs which are about as un-American as it is possible to sound:

Yet this is the kind of music Trump and his supporters (look at the YouTube comments!) like. It fits perfectly with Trump's architectural tastes as seen in the decor of Trump Tower, Mar-a-Lago, etc. (previously posted but currently unavailable). It is all part of the same uniquely ugly aesthetic of the post-Renaissance West. Used in the context of the Trump campaign, it is a shameless dogwhistle to Eurocentrism. Rightists do not want the US to be America. They want the US to be never anything but a crass permanent incursion of Western civilization into the New World.

Contrast with the DNC closing song whose sound is instantly recognizable as American:

Red is the colour of the colonial era. Blue is the colour of American nationalism.
