Or the women who love them.
Latest polls show Obama “getting blown away among blue collar white men”, and I’m glad to hear it. It is as it should be. Political analysts speculate as to the reason— that it is due to the economy or the “right’s unrelenting efforts to create culturally based resentment.” That makes me laugh out loud — good try Salon. The right’s unrelenting efforts?
The Obama of 2008 fooled a lot of well meaning (although not very discerning) people, but it didn’t take but a short moment to understand that his talk of unity and coming together for the greater good masked something hateful underneath. And, surprise! Whites noticed.
They remember the vicious, vindictive assault on them as a group shortly after the election by Obama’s supporters, many who now serve in his administration. Comments like this:
“…the inexorable transformation of America into a white minority country in some thirty years – by 2041 in the latest census bureau estimates – is causing serious jitters, if not panic, in the white establishments….we’re just at the start of what may be a 30 year struggle.
Beer won’t cool the fury of those who can’t accept the reality that America’s racial profile will not longer reflect their own.” ~ Frank Rich, the guy who also called white men opposing Obamacare “goons” with a “mob” mentality comparable to those who committed civil rights murders in the 60s.
So-called “rednecks” didn’t miss this either:
“Having been in the South in the 60s and Los Angeles, in Watts and northern urban areas, when we were evolving as a country, I’m thinking of all the bigots and the rednecks and all the people that I met along the way. I’m saying to them, “Take this.” ~ Tom Brokaw, MSNBC’s Morning Joe, on inauguration day
When Obama’s STIMULUS came before Congress, Robert Reich shared where he felt the money should go. Illegals? No problem...just not to white men:
“I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs will simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers. I have nothing against white male construction workers, I’m just saying there are other people who have needs as well.”
Reich, the former Labor Secretary, praised Obamomentum “leading to universal health care, cap-and-trade, more spending on education, and higher taxes on the rich”, and cheered Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court, never minding that her bias against white males was painfully (to white males) evident:
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” Sotomayor said.
“It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos and women, who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again,” he said.
Most white men have had nothing to do with discrimination that happened in the past. But they are being discriminated against by their own government that has set out to enact bureaucratic vigilante justice for those who will most likely never be fully satisfied with the outcome. Indeed, Eric Holder said as much recently, when asked how long affirmative action laws will need to stay on the books:
Attorney General Holder recently addressed the question of affirmative action, and for how long it would be required. He answered, stunningly, that reverse discrimination has only just begun: “Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices,” Holder said. “The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin[.] … When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?”
That kind of encouragement to milk the system at the expense of others brought us Pigford II, where 500% of black “farmers” filed claims for $50,000 in taxpayer paid reparations, some because they once fertilized a potted plant. John Bennett, writing at American Thinker notes:
Racial preferences extend to business startups, prestigious academic admissions, job promotions, and expensive government contracts. Many of these preferences have no relationship to discrimination, oppression, or even socioeconomic class level; they even benefit recent immigrants whose ancestors never faced discrimination in America. Instead, we are actually creating a government-sanctioned nobility — a favored class of citizens with officially endorsed, race-based hereditary privileges.
Then there are the Black Panthers, with their open hostility towards whites, who never seem to be out of favor with Obama and Holder.
The opening shot against whites was made by Barack Obama, and it was made early. The man chosen by Obama to give the Inauguration prayer, to set the stage for the Obama administration said this in closing…no, he prayed to God these words in closing:
Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest,
and in the joy of a new beginning,
we ask you to help us work for that day
when black will not be asked to get in back,
when brown can stick around,
when yellow will be mellow,
when the red man can get ahead, man;
and when white will embrace what is right.
That all those who do justice and love mercy
White men are coming to understand that in an Obama administration, “justice” is another word for payback. And white males have to pay.
If it is considered racist for me to simply point out these facts, how then does a country have a conversation where speaking the truth isn’t called racism?
White males are done being played for fools. They’ve had enough.
