A white, largely Southern, social conservative opposed to social progress, civil rights for nonwhites, and political equality. They were the old Dixiecrats who have switched to the Republican party. They're now also known as Dixiecans.
Characteristics of a Dixiecon include: overt or thinly veiled white supremacy; in-your-face sexism; an outward show of patriotism by flag waving while at the same time evading taxes and military service; religous fundamentalism; and (active or passive) allegiance with white supremacist hate groups, better known as domestic terrorist organizations.
Dixiecons have this country held hostage to their small-minded, redneck views. They're trying to pass unconstitutional voting laws requiring photo ID. They claim it will reduce voter fraud (read: large minority turnout), but in fact, it's designed to keep poor people, especially the elderly, disabled, and minorites, from voting out the Dixiecon mafia.
A term to describe the members of dixiecrats that "mythically switched" to the Republican party.
We know that if every dixiecrat became a dixiecon then repulicans would have had several places on the ballot in the south during 1960s and 1970s. We know that was not true.
