By the “worst tribal instincts” do you mean the bedrock American values of liberty, fraternity, equality; freedom, inclusiveness–the American Promise of “life, liberty and justice for all?” In its document declaring its independence, America declared “all men are created equal.” To believe in the reality of those words, to see them in play in society, to support their fulfillment is not, as you put it,”pandering.”
What you offer weakens American strength. It endorses a small, privileged tribe of white males. It approves of their oppression of others.
By no standard of history, morality, or thought, has restricting freedom for some benefited the whole. Forced conformity is force compelled. Nativism is many times failed, East and West.
