Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks believes Democrats are hurting themselves with white voters by its stance on immigration.

“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.”

    So let me get this straight; a white man from Alabama is feeling threatened because there’s a black man in the Whitehouse. Okay, got it.
    These republicans are sure working hard to reach out and broaden their base……NOT!

      And, blaming the Dems for calling them on it!

    Social conservatives made similar ludicrous claims when lamenting the implementation of the Civil Rights Acts back in the 1960’s.

      It’s like they’re still living in the conservative Dixiecrat era before the 1964 civil rights legislation. They yearn for those times when they didn’t have to disguise their racism and hate.

    Paranoid GOP hero’s soil themselves without any assistance from others ‘Let me tell you about the negroes’-Welfare rancher and GOP Leader Cliven Bundy: “Well I guess I am a terrorist”-FNC’s Eric Bolling interview accidentally televised the truth.

    Sounds like republicans are trying to project their racist southern strategy on democrats as a northern strategy. Can’t they see, all they are doing is drawing more attention to their own racism?

      Today’s 89% white GOP outreach to the 2/3+ of legacy minorities voting for Dems is leaving repubs further behind after GOP lost 5 of the past 6 popular POTUS votes. The only place repubs remain primarily electable are in whiter America fly-over country where low info electorates vote against their own best interests.

      Where ever U.S. population density increases to 300 per square mile, those more informed and better educated densities tend to vote liberal. RIP GOP.

    According to Gallup, 60% of democrats are white, so yes, Rep. ‘Sh*t for Brains’, white members of the Democratic Party are waging a war against themselves.

    There’s a war on whites? Maybe women – but that would encompass all women. Let me see, when was the last time a white man was denied ANYTHING subconsciously or otherwise based on his color……(hearing non-stop Jeopardy music)

      “There’s a war on whites?” Yes, it’s part of the war on “Christians”.

            You should try Festivus.

    If it’s anything like the wars on drugs or terrorism, it just means it will be ineffectual and counter-productive, and we’ll find ourselves up to our eyeballs in white people.
