Archie Bunker

Archie is a Republican and an outspoken supporter of Richard Nixon, as well as an early (1976) supporter of Ronald Reagan; he correctly predicts Reagan's election in 1980. During the Vietnam War, Archie dismisses peace protesters as unpatriotic and has little good to say about the Civil rights movement. Despite having an adversarial relationship with his black neighbors, the Jeffersons, he forms an unlikely friendship with their son Lionel, who performs various odd jobs for the Bunkers and responds to Archie's patronizing racial views with sarcastic quips that usually go over Archie's head. The later spinoff series 704 Hauser features a new, black family moving into Bunker's old home.

radical rightAmerican far rightfar right
The political success of Donald Trump has prompted American historian Rick Perlstein to argue that historians have underestimated the influence and power on the modern American political right of populist, nativist, collectivist authoritarian, and conspiracy-minded right-wing movements such as the Black Legion, Fr. Charles Coughlin, the Christian Front, and "birther" speculation; and overestimated the more libertarian influence of William F. Buckley's limited government, free trade, free market intellectual conservatism or the pro-immigration and optimistic outlook of Ronald Reagan. Sociologists Lipset and Raab were focused on who joined these movements and how they evolved.
