Skip to comments.Setzer: 'Military, vets prefer Romney over Obama because most are White Men'
Posted on 09/29/2012 2:35:43 PM PDT by pabianice
Obama supporter Christie Setzer on Fox. News item: Romney ahead of Obama by up to 20 points among veterans and military families in four key swing states. Her explanation:
1. Most military and vets are white men (a twofer: Romney supporters are racists and anyway they hate women).
2. Anyway, Romney isn't really ahead. It's a Fox lie.
The exit polls will prove her wrong. I doubt that Mr. Obama gets 10% of the non-black military/veteran vote.
'Military, vets prefer Romney over Obama because most are
White American Men'
I do not vote for blacks.
I do not hire blacks.
I would not buy a house next to blacks.
I would not want to sell my house to blacks.
I was a very different person 4 years ago. Now I'm all done. If the KKK comes to my door, I'd probably sign up.
Nice going Barack!
Or maybe because they resent being chucked under the bus and being called “bumps in the road”.
T'wasn't that long ago that the progressive left insisted military service took advantage of poor, disadvantaged minorities. Which is it then?
Not long ago the libs claimed the military was comprised of mostly poor blacks.
You read my mind. Just what I was going to post.
No, most are patriotic and recognize the enemy-within when they see it.
There aren't that many liberals in the military because they don't respect military service. They would rather surrender than fight. The only Corps they respect is the Peace Corps.
Yeah! I remember that! The Army was using poor ghetto black kids for cannon fodder because they had no chance for a job in racist Amerikkka. Was just a few years ago. Back whan Boosh was President.
Di\dn’t Charlie Rangel want to reinstitute the military draft, because the US military was made up of “poor, urban, minority males”? Now they’re all racist white people? I’m sorry, I’m having trouble keeping the ‘rat arguments straight.
Channeling Charlie (don’t wake me up) Rangell are we. The left is so f-ing dense.
You folks have to realize...It’s BOTH...Whichever argument fits their agenda at any given time.....*ROFL*
This is funny.
During the Iraq War weren’t the lefties screaming that the military was mostly Black because that’s the only place they could find jobs?
My wife and I are Jewish. She tells me that I am one of only two Jewish man she knows who volunteered for the military. I have only one other on my side of the family*. Most of my generation of fellow American Jews are, frankly, self-centered pricks.
* does not include my Jewish friends who joined the Guard to avoid active duty during Vietnam
Well that all changed after King Bush said felons are not allowed. Come on, keep up.
The lefties keep on pushing racist crap. It isn’t color, it’s communism or what is darn close to it. I’ll take an Allen West over any number of liberal whites every single time.
Who is Christie Setzer? What are her sources? What is her background? What is her track record for telling the truth? Who has she worked for in the past and who does she work for now?
Maybe she’s related to the leader singer of the Stray Cats. Meow, Christy.
Don't engage them on the "facts" or issues they bring up until you vet them. Who are they? What is their credibility? Who pays them and who has paid them? Unless they can prove that they are not inveterate liars, paid operatives and aren't nuttier than squirrel poop based on their past history there is no reason to discuss anything they bring up with them. The press is the enemy and should be treated accordingly.
Unlike Marxist, Mooslim, Kenyan steaming pantloads....

But the fact that Mr. Setzer supports Ubama simply because he is 7% black doesn’t mean he’s a racist, and even if it does that’s OK because he is a member of the self-declared victim class.
So I guess that any black that votes for Barry over Romney is a racist. Any white that votes for Romney over Barry is a racist. This statement is racist. I guess.
I predicted in 2009 that Obama would set back race relations by 100 years. I’m starting to think I was right.
Its no surprise that she went on to serve as the spokesperson for three presidential campaignsincluding as Iowa press secretary for Vice President Al Gore, spokeswoman for former Vermont Governor Howard Dean, and national press secretary for Senator Christopher J. Doddand countless races across the country. In each of these roles, Christy garnered significant national media attention for her candidates, resulting in coverage on CNN, MSNBC, and ABCs Good Morning America and in the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
Most veterans really are white, about 70%. Only a little over 15% are black.
Still, Stezer’s comment is patently racist.
Wait, wait, the meme we’ve been dealing with for the last three decades is that the underclass (blacks and Hispanics) are bearing the defense burden for rich white people. How did the veterans all suddenly become white?
This Obama regime has set back race relations about 40 years.
Does it ever occur to these folks, that false accusations of racism only serve to further raise rhetoric and poison relations between Americans?
No shame with people like this. Very sad, and just an illustration of the worst kind of politics.
Yep. I stopped watching the Fox weirdos and all other popular television news long ago. Even stopped subscribing to the satellite TV service (staffed by family-haters).
Which is just slightly above the overall percentage of blacks in the general population.
What the communist faction and the blue blood country club banking faction of the Washingtonians have done is make it clear that the Washingtonians are about themselves first and foremost.
Every 4 years they put on a dog and pony show and fight out who gets to control and redistribute to their allies the cash extorted by the IRS from us suckers outside the beltway.
Washington will NEVER solve ANY problems no matter which faction is in control.
Washington IS the problem.
They set the races against each other, and the communist faction controls the racial make up of the nation to benefit itself.
The blue blood country club banking faction is too incompetent to stop them, even when they control all three branches of government, because they are afraid to be called racist and God forbid lose their seat in DC.
This is a bald face lie. Many years back, I was privy to a report that stated that blacks, by percentage of population, was large in the military than whites. That even though there are more whites in the population than blacks, the percentage of the Army’s population that was black was larger than whites according to the USA population percentages. If that makes sense to you.
when will someone tell them to put it where the sun.....oh well, you know.
Yeah, whatever. Next they will suggest we shouldn’t be allowed to vote due to our supposed “racism”.
According to Heritage Foundation, blacks are very slightly over-represented in the military, AS ARE WHITES! Hispanics and Orientals are under-represented.
Not this Obama is half Arab dreck again.
He's not half-Arab. He is 43.75% Arab.
Facts are stubborn things.
No, that notion originated with Kenneth Lamb, who isn’t a reliable source. Ask Beckwith about him.
PS, here is a pic or Barack Obama Sr. Does the guy look even the slighted bit Arab to you?
The majority of military casualties are overwhelmingly white. (Blacks tend to serve in support units). The more elite units tend to be whiter. Furthermore, rural and small-town whites from the South and Midwest are very common, really the backbone of the military. Today’s military is being feminized and homosexualized, it looks like they’re going to try to make it more and more uncomfortable for traditional white male soldiers.
Absolutely right. The resultant PC backlash (blacks, in particular, get special consideration for combat arms leadership) can have some rather tragic results (see 5/2 SBCT and COL Tunnell--if he had been white he would've been fired prior to deploying with 5/2, no question).
Nice going Barack! Well, if you can work you way up the ranks to being a KKK recruiter, you can use your position to launch you Senatorial campaign as a Dumbocrat.
The Marine Corps was too, but they all musta jumped out of the way right before I got wounded.
