Douglas Turner: GOP is courting angry white males
Buffalo News ^ | 8/10/09 | Drug Turner

Posted on 08/10/2009 10:27:57 AM PDT by pissant

WASHINGTON — With their votes against Sonia Maria Sotomayor last week, Republicans snuggled up to their broadcast image as the incredible shrinking frat house of white males.

The GOP once courted the Latino vote. But on Thursday, both Republican senators from three states carved out of old Mexico in the 19th century— Texas, Arizona and Utah— all voted against the newest Supreme Court justice.

OK, one of the six was a woman, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas. But she is running against an incumbent governor, Rick Perry, who is courting macho extremists who think secession from the United States might not be a bad idea.

Twenty-five other Republicans joined the sextet. Were they oblivious to the old news that Hispanics are the fastest-growing share of

registered voters? Texas and Arizona are nearly a third Hispanic.

Opposing Republican senators acted out a version of Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” of appealing to angry white males, now backed by the drumbeat of hired brown-shirts wrecking Democratic town meetings in the August recess, racist cartoons flooding the Internet and the rant on Fox News that President Obama has a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

Looks like Drug Turner courted an angry ferret to be his hair piece.

And if angry black females were being targeted instead? Would that make any difference?

And they would be wise to do so, too. White males (and their equally white, equally angry wives) make up the single largest voting block out there. Getting just 1% of the white vote is equivalent to getting something like 6% of the black vote or 7% of the Latino vote, once you factor in voting rates and population percentages. Guess which would be a lot easier to get?

I wish republicans would actually do something for white males other than make us a smaller minority every year considering we are their best demographic.

‘Were they oblivious to the old news that Hispanics are the fastest-growing share of registered voters? Texas and Arizona are nearly a third Hispanic.’

None of this seemed to bother Democrats when they torpedoed Estrada’s ascension to a higher court. In fact, Dim memos stated that Estrada was opposed because he’s Hispanic. I guess that didn’t ruffle the right feathers...

The DNC has been pandering to blacks and other non-whites for decades. Why shouldn’t the RNC pander to whites?

“””Why shouldn’t the RNC pander to whites?”””””

Its racist.
Don’t ask me why, I don’t know the answer to that.

And why is DEMS pandering to blacks NOT racist?
I don’t know the answer to that either. I guess I am not “enlightened” and “forward thinking” enough to know.

Where was Druggie when his Democrat friends were sandbagging the far better qualified Hispanic gentleman named Miguel Estrada?

It also has to be remembered that it only due to the grace of the white Christian men in America that any other group has been allowed to have any power what so ever.

This is not a racist post. It is an indisputable fact. The Christian white man in America is the person who pushed for and bled for the freedom of Black Americans. It was the Christian White (Generally Republican) Americans that pushed for Woman's Suffrage, and for civil rights for minorities. And it is the Christian White man who allows the government to continue to keep the borders open allowing large quantities of illegal immigrants into the country.

Continue to push the White Man and see what happens. They may actually one day decide that they don't need anybody else. I am with the Rev. James David Manning, White people gonna riot.

But but but...If the DemoPervert liars can’t fall back on accusing anyone who is winning an argument againt them of being “a racist”...You take away 3/5’ths of their debating
arsenal..their inevitable fallback position, no m,atter wjhat the issue is...Crap Matthews, woukd have had no career
at all if he wasn’t accusing *somebody* of being a racist evry 15 minutes. Krugman is just another in a panolpy of intellectual bankrupt DemoLiberals who fall back on the “cry wolf” racism charge to win an argument. They cry “racism” faster than the race hustlers Sharpton and Jackson. Cris Matthews is the “Waco Kid” of throwing the race card! But many in the “Main stream” Media, are almost as fast.

This is why Democrats think they can do whatever they want. It reveals a massive error in demographic analysis.

Hispanics are members of the white race. They are European descendants after all. The Spanish-American is an ethnicity, not a race. If hispanic is a race, then being irish would be considered a race.

Texas has always been one third hispanic. These idiots haven’t a clue about the history of Texas. I bet it would surprise them that Texas was once even part of Mexico.

Anyway, the most important part of demographic analysis is the birth rate and the age of the population. It is the fall of the birth rate that is causing the population pyramid to turn into a diamond and destroy nations with elaborate retirement systems like Japan and nations in Europe. It is the fall of the European birth rate and the rise of Muslim birth rate which is why Muslim population is rapidly growing in Europe for example.

In America, when one party advocates abortion, advocates homosexuality, advocates feminism, you do not have many children. Since beliefs are primary transferred from parent to child, there is going to be a big problem for the Democrats in the future.

Democrats didn’t see hispanics votings in a majority for W. Bush as governor of Texas. They certainly are not seeing that hispanics are a big reason why California voted down gay marriage.

Let them pretend to be in their fantasy world that they will never lose another election for forty years.

Anyone that the GOP courts is a call for criticism by the Left.

"GOP courts Hispanics" is played against opposition to amnesty, and is called a futile effort.

"GOP nominates Palin" is played as a cynical attempt to court women voters, a futile effort.

"GOP courts religious right" is played as appealing to bigots and narrow-minded hicks.

"GOP courts African-Americans" with selecting Clarence Thomas, Condolezza Rice, Michael Steele, et. al., to high offices, as a futile effort.

Apparently, to the Leftthere are no voter blocs that are suitable for the GOP to court.

There is a certain world view that fears the “angry white male.” That is why that the media minions mock, attack and seek to marginalize the “White Male.” The Anglo Saxon has been a terrible thing when enraged. It remains to be seen if that capacity remains.

Ahem. It is Ted Kennedy (DuMass) who is officially on record opposing Bush's judicial nominees SPECIFICALLY because they were Hispanic.

Buffalo: Detroit without the charm, but with all of the boarded up houses and weed-grown schoolyards. Another socialist workers paradise. Funny, the angry white males in Buffalo are all Democrats. Hey, if hating Republicans keeps you warm at night, be my guest. How many hundred thousand people have left your crummy town in the last few decades?

It is. White men are the most tolerant and indulgent on the planet. No real cruelty is ingrained in European culture and stuff that is has been phased out. If Northern whites hadn’t care about slavery, blacks would still be slaves and women in the kitchen.

It can’t be disputed that white civilization, and Asian as well, are the most forward civilizations on the planet. We’re busy blasting along and colonizing cyberspace and merrily building a more efficient society while other civilizations lag behind.
