Republican Congressman: Democrats Are Waging A ‘War On Whites’
Rep. Mo Brooks accused Democrats of waging a war on white people. The Alabama Republican doesn’t think that the GOP’s staunch opposition to child refugees fleeing from violence could hurt the party’s standing with Hispanic voters.
Brooks believes that Democrats are hurting their prospects with white voters.
The Huffington Post reports:
“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,” he said during an interview Monday with 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.”
Brooks was responding to comments made by National Journal’s Ron Fournier, who told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday that “the fastest growing voting bloc in this country thinks the Republican Party hates them. This party, your party, cannot be the party of the future beyond November if you’re seen as the party of white people.”
During the segment Brooks was responding to, Juan Williams said, “If you look at the core constituency of people, let’s say, who are in tea party opposition support of impeachment, there’s no diversity. It’s a white, older group of people.”
Brooks’ response didn’t sit well with Laura Ingraham who told him that characterizing Democrats’ rhetoric as a “war on whites” was “a little out there.”
“That’s what they are doing though,” he responded, without offering any proof to back up his claim.
This is where the GOP’s thinking is skewed. We don’t care if we lose ‘white votes’ if we’re doing the right thing. It’s not about the votes.

They seem to have “white” and “GOPTP” all mixed up in one…

Yes it’s true.
“Okay. These assholes, they always get away. Yup”.

Quit warring on yourself!

I think I need to work on my tan some more. I really don’t want to be at war with myself.

I just launched a rocket from the strip near my southern border that exploded near my chest.

You need to aim better, try opening your eyes before shooting and quit pretending you are Daredevil.

They don’t understand simple math. If whites didn’t vote for the President twice, he wouldn’t be in office. African Americans only account for about 13% of the US’ population.

‘Xenophobes are afraid of everybody else.’ And conservatives are the easiest to scare. Boo! http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human-beast/201104/conservatives-big-fear-brain-study-finds

Frank Zappa said it nearly 50 years ago, and it’s still true:
“I’m not black…but there’s a whole lots of times I wish I wasn’t white!”

LOL! This winger, as well as most republicans are confused by what a “War on ______ ” means. Maybe someone with the mental capacity within his party, should define to him what “friendly fire” is.

It’ll be a long time finding someone with “mental capacity”!

I was born in 1962, and I have listened to racists all my life who prattle, blather and whine about black people who claim to be victims. Racists used to REALLY hate folks who say they are being oppressed and attacked for the color of their skin. Now….the GOP would go damn near SILENT if they shut up about their “victimization” at the hands of others. They are biggest, loudest PUSSIES I have ever had the misfortune to share a country with.

Sorry…no twatting for this boy. No Facebook either.

I’m starting a war against whites, too. There is nothing more embarrassing then being unconscious and the EMT’s seeing that you’re wearing tidy whiteys. Spend a little more coin and show a little style to wear some underwear with color.
Guy Lauten August 4th, 2014 at 7:03 pm
Elitist bastards of all stripes are what’s wrong with this place. I’ve been at war with White Privilege since I first recognized it, and I damn well will keep it up until I die.

It seems that later rather then sooner the sons, the grand sons and the great grandsons of Dixie will finally die out…

Hitler’s dream of the Aryan race is alive and well in Dixie. By the way, Alabama is another poor Red State that receives more federal tax dollars than they pay in. I’d be fine with them seceding at any time. You’ll have more time to prepare your hood for your Klan rally.
