Skip to comments.Mark Steyn: How the GOP earned its date with destiny
Posted on 11/18/2012 10:32:28 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
To an immigrant such as myself (not the undocumented kind, but documented up to the hilt, alas), one of the most striking features of Election Night analysis was the lightly worn racial obsession. On Fox News, Democrat Kirsten Powers argued that Republicans needed to deal with the reality that America is becoming what she called a "brown country." Her fellow Democrat Bob Beckel observed on several occasions that if the share of the "white vote" was held down below 73 percent, Mitt Romney would lose. In the end, it was 72 percent, and he did. Beckel's assertion that if you knew the ethnic composition of the electorate you also knew the result turned out to be correct.
This is what less-enlightened societies call tribalism: for example, in the 1980 election leading to Zimbabwe's independence, Joshua Nkomo's ZAPU-PF got the votes of the Ndebele people while Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF secured those of the Shona and, as there were more Shona than Ndebele, Mugabe won. That same year America held an election, and Ronald Reagan won a landslide victory. Nobody talked about tribal vote shares back then, but had the percentage of what Beckel calls the "white vote" been the same in 2012 as it was in 1980 (88 percent), Mitt Romney would have won in an even bigger landslide than Reagan. The "white vote" will be even lower in 2016, and so, on the Beckel model, Republicans are set to lose all over again.

The idiot GOP has been suckered, in their idiot thinking about cheap labor for businesses. The demonic-rats are looking for more dependencies and VOTERS.
" demographics is destiny and, absent assimilationist incentives this country no longer imposes, a Latin-American population will wind up living in a Latin-American society. "
Nathan Bedford's first maximum of American politics:
All politics in America is not local but ultimately racial
Over the last few decades, the GOP has been "bribed" in the form of campaign donations from businesses in order to keep this racket going. The GOP never had any intention of stopping this insane flow of illegals. Reagan granted amnesty. Bush did nothing to seal the borders after 9-11.
And now we have a demographic problem and the GOP is beginning to see its own obituary.
Way to go GOP, you deserve this problem. There is a reason why they are called the "stupid party".
I concur. SPINELESS, IDIOTS.

The so-called non-white vote is deliberately voting against itself.
I saw Beckel’s comments on Fox live. He was only stating facts, cold hard facts that many are still refusing to see. He said if the electorate was 72% white, Obama will win. If it was more like 73% or greater white, Romney would win. To his credit he did not make any value judgement about it. He just stated them as the cold hard facts.
I suggest a new acronym: POPPIWID, meaning the Purpose of a Political Party is What It Does. The purpose of the Democratic Party is to arrogate political power to itself by whatever means possible, regardless of the interests of the country or its citizens. The purpose of the Republic Party is to play permanent second fiddle to the Democratic Party, Costello to the Dem's Abbot, Robin to the Dem's Batman, Tonto to the Dem's Lone Ranger, always subservient to its master, even when it pretends to rebel.
The Republican Party is no more "stupid" than Robin or Tonto. It's just playing its supporting role in the bamboozlement of the American people.
Lots of people wasting LOTS of time believing that Romney really lost the election. 0bama stole it and all one needs to do is look at the resistance, stonewalling and lies thrown at Allen West merely for wanting to review the vote. 900 votes cast in a precinct with 7 registered voters does not bode well for the validity of this election. And we all know union hacks view CHEATING as a badge of honor.
And now we see the legacy of generations of non-racist white Republican chumps who twisted themselves into pretzels to avoid being called racist. They are now being outvoted by various minorities who proudly proclaim their anti-white racism.
And the purpose of the Democrat party has been, since its founding two centuries ago, to use “persons of color” to convert raw materials into wealth and power for itself.
Harry Truman predicted it in fact!
Most of the non-whites Canada imports vote liberal or worse. Same as the United States. The only reason Conservatives up here won a small majority last time was because of unusual vote splitting on the left.
I agree. Republicans act like controlled opposition.
“And now we see the legacy of generations of non-racist white Republican chumps who twisted themselves into pretzels to avoid being called racist. They are now being outvoted by various minorities who proudly proclaim their anti-white racism.”
Quoted for truth.
True. A lot of GOP-e refused to do anything to secure the border because they wanted cheap labor. Now the new voters making up that cheap labor are voting overwelming for Democrat politicians who enact laws and regulations that nullify and overcome any cost savings business may have made with the cheap labor. I could see this coming years ago, but the GOP-e couldn’t. Go figure.
It’s an election robbed by a well organized
Chicago Daley machine gone national and the entire media knows it and is hiding it including Fox !
Yup...and the open-border/cheap-labor pimps at the Wall Street Jounal are stll calling for more immigration:legal & ilegal. The idiot Adam Smith bow-tie crowd of the GOP to whom economics is God are still telling the public that Hispanics are a natural fit for the GOP. And in Massachusetts Obama’s mini-me gave illegals free in-state college tuition today with an EO jut like his hero.
If we cannot depend on the relative integrity of our elections; then what is left?
