Skip to comments.Republicans: An old, white, dying breed of voter?
Posted on 11/25/2012 9:55:22 AM PST by Altura Ct.
The Republicans are old white men, red necks and racists. They're in thrall to tea-baggers, who do not understand or give a darn about minorities.
If only other Republicans knew how often I had this hateful brew (hatred of white male conservatives is still socially acceptable on the left) shoved down my throat. But what's been directed at me personally is worse: I have been called a sell-out, hater of a brother (meaning Obama), and numerous choice words I can't share here (hatred of conservative black women from the left is trickier, but even more heart-felt).
...It is time to lay down the tracks of a new "underground railroad," a movement to help a people who are in bondage to the Democratic Party find hope and encouragement in the GOP, a movement that will wake up complacent Democrats and Republicans alike, a movement that will stop the hemorrhaging of the GOP. We will not be televised - the mainstream media can't imagine that we exist and we remain invisible to them - but we will be webvised, we will be heard online through bloggers, videos, e-mails and text messages, twitters, Facebook and more. We can no longer be shut out. We are the voice of the 21st century and we will be heard. If the RNC continues to think of blacks and Latinos as an afterthought, the GOP will continue its genteel decline and forfeit any chance of victory in 2016.
...Mitt Romney was doomed to fail when the Republican party failed to develop a clear and coherent agenda to appeal to blacks, Latinos, and other non-white people.

Sounds like the author is advocating tribal politics.We already have one party doing that. Why do we need both parties doing it?
“that population is a lost cause that can only survive with government handouts, selling drugs or theft.”
Well when the economic collapse hits they will be in the first die off as none of them have an extra can of chili in the cupboard. Old conservative bitter clingers may be back in the majority.
I would love to work with this woman
THe teens around here liked it a lot.
I’ll have to see the original in order to compare.
It might not be as bad as you would be right to imagine.
read the article please
read the article please

If it is true as this writer claims the black community is not monolithic and share conservative values then why pray tell do they vote over 90% for the Robin Hood party? Why have they chosen to self segregate since the Civil Rights movement and why is it always someone else’s “responsibility” to reach out and understand them? If they actually believed in conservative values they would care a whole lot less about how much others can do for them and a whole lot more about their individual freedom and personal responsibility.
This woman’s diatribe against racist white old men isn’t intelligent analysis, it’s a cliche, a template brought to the black community by their plantation masters of the Democrat Party. What’s truly sad is I’ve heard this drivel for the last 40 years and it is no more true now than it was then. As the Godfather of the current Democrat Party, Vladamir Lenin, once opined, “A lie told often enough becomes truth”
God help this Republic if the answer is what can you do for me instead of what can I do for myself. Unfortunately, I fear we have reached that tipping point.
Exactly. “Old white guys” made this country the greatest country ever known on this planet. Since Barry Benghazi doesn’t fit in the “old white guy” catagory, it’s the NON-OLD WHITE GUYS who are tearing it down and destroying it. JMO.
there are no more conservatives; only vary degrees of liberalism: left, center and right....
The RINO party is no different than the DimWhit party. They are all one and the same. We are stuck with two of the same. Sad.
As long as Conservatives are ruled by the GOP, the GOP dies. Yeah, yeah, I know the argument about a Third Party. But there is a future with a Third Party. There is oblivion with the GOP.
I read the article. What do think I missed?
Republicans aren’t going to attract black voters without getting into a bidding war with Dems. We don’t need blacks to win anyways.
If they were true, the election numbers they spew, why the need for all that vote fraud?
In war the enemy will often tell you that you are outnumber and fighting back is useless. It save them bullets if your side gives up.
They tell you EVERY vote, YOUR vote is important and then look the other way at very suspicious vote counts which totally obliterate the legitimate votes...those that were supposed to be so very important.
Short of this the parasites will soon *outnumber* the producers and then it's game over.I think that Romney might have been wrong about "47%"...I suspect it's closer to 49%.If not higher.
And people like you just gave Obama at least another 2 Supreme Court nominees after which we can truly kiss the country good-bye. You special people certainly showed us so how or if you do vote in the future truly doesn’t matter.
I’ve been voting Republican since the late 80’s and we’re being taken over by Mexico, Kenya and Islam.....
Voting Republican doesn’t stop sh*t.
Better to speed up the decline so something new can rise from the ashed at this point.
Has nothing to do with race. The Republican party is where you find most of the productive people, the business owners, the hard-working people who don’t have an obamaphone. So happens that most of those are WASPs. White, anglo-saxon protestants.
Its past time for a grass roots GOP candidate to arise. The 2016 version is not yet on the horizon. Any known quantity (Rubio, Palin, Jindal) can be defined and marginalized. The GOP needs a wildcard in 2016. Clint Eastwood please pick up the red courtesy phone...
