Republican: Democrats Declare ‘War on Whites’


There are few things more ridiculous than those with all the privilege, money and power pretending to be the victims of terrible prejudice. Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama says the Democrats have “declared war on whites” because they want to help Latino child refugees.

“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” Brooks told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. “It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”…

The congressman defended his stance on immigration, arguing that “every single demographic group” would be negatively impacted by an increase of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.

“Democrats, they have to demagogue on this and try and turn it into a racial issue, which is an emotional issue, rather than a thoughtful issue,” Brooks said. “If it becomes a thoughtful issue, then we win and we win big. And they lose and they lose big.”

Seriously? The people on his side of the argument have been foaming at the mouth, calling the children liars, claiming that they’re bringing diseases like Ebola into America, screaming nationalistic slogans at busloads of kids and arguing that those 52,000 children are going to destroy America. This is being thoughtful? Only on Planet Wingnuttia. The demagoguery is all on the other side of this one.

    Yeah, if Obama didn’t hate white people he would have shown it by choosing a white running mate and including some white people in his cabinet.

    “… if President Obama said ‘here are all the whiteys in my cabinet. If he said ‘whitey, whitey, whitey’. Nobody could call a super-privledged frat-boy in Alabama a name and make him cry…”*

    Yeah that works. @@

    He’s right. The Democrat party hired Bizarro Atwater. That’s why they aren’t shouting “Honky! Honky! Honky!” anymore, and have moved on the more subtle dogwhistles like “Medicaid Expansion! Medicaid Expansion! Medicaid Expansion!”, “Voting Rights! Voting Rights! Voting Rights!” and “DREAM Act DREAM Act! DREAM Act!”. Plus, I’m sure that “Uterus! Uterus! Uterus!” hurt white people, somehow.

    MO – just as long as they don’t get onto ‘Beetlejuice’. Nobody, but nobody, deserves Michael Keaton!

    This same idiot also thinks it’s legal to discriminate against white people, apparently because we don’t have a “race.” The stupid is strong with this one.

    In realityland, Obama won 43% of the white vote in his first win. It wasn’t much different in his second victory.

    Obama’s war on white people doesn’t seem very effective. Most of them haven’t even heard of it.

    PS I wonder what his mother would think of his War. After all, she was…white. For that matter, what does Obama, who is half white think about his War on Whites?

    “Democrats, they have to demagogue on this and try and turn it into a racial issue, which is an emotional issue, rather than a thoughtful issue,” Brooks said.

    Well, that is refreshing: it brings me back to old times when the conservatives kept claiming that they were the rational ones, the grownups in the room. I’ve been getting tired of the more recent denigration of “pointed headed elites” who don’t have the common sense of the salt of the earth in “fly-over country.”

    I am totally looking forward to the War on Whites!

    You just know we’ll get the BEST Marshall plan when we lose!

    Later this year, they’ll combine two wars, and it’ll be the War on White Christmas!

    It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things.

    As opposed to the Republican plan of gathering every American of every race, color, and creed behind the unifying, single-minded purpose of advancing the welfare, interests, and privilege of white, straight, wealthy, Christian men. Strange how that hasn’t worked out for them. It must be Obama’s fault.

    You say DEM-agoguery … I say demaGO[P]guery … Let’s call the whole thing off!

    I would definitely prefer to be divided based on GREED.

    GREED is a huge problem in this country. Do you realize that someone in this country wasn’t happy being a minority owner of a pro hockey team so he STOLE enough to get his own team? That’s the greediest thing I’ve ever heard, and I would like to be “divided” from people like THAT.

    …And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else…

    This sentence is revealing. Democrats haven’t ever made the claim that “whites hate everybody else,” but it has often been pointed out that the Republicans & Teabaggers tend toward outrageous racism. I think this shows that subconsciously, the wingnuts think of all the white people as being on their side. All them colored folks are Democrats, therefore all Democrats are colored. So when a Democrat points out the seething hatred a Republican has for anyone not sufficiently pale, the Republican hears it as an uppity minority declaring that all white people hate everybody else.
    If you look through the special kaleidoscope that warps reality 180 degrees from true, it makes perfect sense. It must be terrible living in a black & white world, where there are only two options for every dilemma.

    Check out the #WarOnWhites hashtag on Twitter. There’s some pretty funny stuff there.

    #WarOnWhites Journal, Day 263: Found more survivors at the Pier One in north Springfield. They shared their Mio. Morale is low.

    #WarOnWhites Relief stations have been set up with tuna noodle casseroles , potato salad, mac & cheese, & molded jello w/fruit for refugees.

    First the War on Christmas. Now the War on Whites. If there’s one thing (white) German history can teach us it’s that one should never fight a war on two fronts at the same time. Too bad Obama never took history. Sigh.

    I remember the first War on Whites. They went bravely in to battle waving their flag, and all the other races assumed they were surrendering.

  18. samgardner says

    I have a war on whites every time I do my laundry. Well, okay… it’s really more negligence than actual war. Does that count?
