Skip to comments.The 'Almost Exclusively White Phenomenon' of Conservatism
Posted on 05/23/2014 8:08:25 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The rush to stand with Mr. Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management is the latest incarnation of conservative antigovernment messaging. And nonwhites are not interested, because a gut-level aversion to the government is almost exclusively a white phenomenon.
After all, America is rapidly importing economically poor, poorly educated, low-skilled immigrants. Those immigrants generate racial inequalities, and inequality is then used to shame and guilt the majority. This is the neurotic cycle I call “America’s never-ending shame.” A constant influx of the “disadvantaged” guarantees a racialized political system and the growth of a Leviathan welfare state.
How can we verify that “a gut-level aversion to the government is almost exclusively a white phenomenon”? For starters, we could look to numerous polls and opinion surveys, which are a better indication of Latino opinion that any self-serving GOP talking points.
The Pew Research Center recently explored Hispanic views about the role of government. Seventy-five percent of Hispanics want “a bigger government providing more services,” while only 19% prefer “a smaller government providing fewer services.”

Among Asians (the second-largest group of immigrants today) the result was 55% favoring big government to 36% favoring smaller. In response to a similar question in 2002, far fewer Hispanics (55%) preferred bigger government; the trends are unfavorable for advocates of limited government.

Dude didn’t look at the chart. The longer Hispanics are in the country, the less they wanted big government!
Well, then all the Americans should go to Mexico and demand free stuff to make things fair....
Now this is shocking.
Yup. I use my white privilege daily to get free cars, free food, free money at the bank. Just walk in and tell them you want to use some of your “privilege” to get an extra couple thousand for walkin’ around money. Works like a charm. Ahhh. Utopia.
Remember the Alamo!
And why do all these minorities want to immigrate to such a evil and racist white country...?
And then go about to change it to the hell hole they just left???
So when we hear the squawk that the “government” imprisons black men at a rate 3x that of white men, that has to be racist because Mr. Sharpton said so. But when TP fans claim that government is too big and in your face, that too is racist because there aren’t any black Al Sharpton supporters behind the guy in NV. And it isn’t racist, of course, when the IRS goes after conservative groups 1000% as often as they do black non-profit groups.
Honestly, I don’t know liberals keep all this stuff straight.
The people of Colorado would like to know that as well.
You mean to tell me, that, the author of this article wants the folks that burned their own stores in L.A., sat on the porch while the water rose in New Orleans, to be counted as ‘conservatives’???????
At that rate you’d have to wait for the sixth-generation Hispanics to catch up to the rate of the general population.
I can’t understand why, but it sure seems like people WANT to be ruled over. Totally goes against the original premise of the United States of America.
According to the chart, it looks like the Mexicans are not coming here for work; they are coming here for all the free stuff. If work was the main objective, they would want less government - less police, less immigration, less social security review of workers, fewer inspections of the workplace from the FDA, EPA, Health & saftey, Fire, etc
It’s a question of Judeo-Christian values. Who cares what damned color you are?
Heres the word for word quote of the presidents most recent declaration against any and all who might disagree with his Big Government, no questions asked, agenda. They were spoken at a big money, California fundraiser:
The truth of the matter is, is that the reason that we have not seen Washington address the core concerns of too many working families around the country is that you have a party that has been captive to an ideology, to a theory of economics, that says those folks, theyre on their own and government doesnt have an appropriate role to play.
And our goal and our task in this midterm has to be to break that grip, that particular view, that particular wrongheaded vision this country has so that we can get back to the business of investing in the American people and investing in Americas future.
It’s only fiscal conservatism that qualifies as a SWPL (stuff white people like).
You see, social conservatism is something virtually all ethnic and racial groups in this country can get behind. Hence, proposition 8 in California - the state’s population is majority non-white, yet it voted several times in favor of real marriage. Almost every racial and ethnic group in this country is going to be a majority-in-favor voting block against perversion.
Social liberalism is the “almost exclusively white phenomenon” the author of this piece should have identified, along with libertarianism.
If you want the minority vote in this country you’re not going to get it with a combination of social liberalism and fiscal conservatism, as a matter of fact that particular political blend a sure-fire way to send your party into total and complete obscurity. Anyone too naive or ignorant to realize that probably shouldn’t be voting in the first place.
This should generate interesting discussion. The Bible makes no mention of race save for the decedents of Noah’s kids. I think we’d be wading into a scriptural mess if we made racial determinations off Noah’s curse on Ham. The apostles got into trouble when they exhibited the slightest hint of racism: Samaritans, gentiles, etc.
For me, that dispels the best case to be made for racism. The next best case is experience which, unlike the first one, has nothing to do with genetics. We know by experience that we’re more likely to have crimes committed against us by non-whites. This isn’t just perception or racism, it’s reality. It’s also a reality that countries with large black populations are pretty miserable places. This, in know way, is proof of white superiority, but is proof that something is wrong culturally.
Culture explains the disparity between perceptions of government. This is something we’ve lost sight of. Democracy, liberty, individualism is an Anglo-American discovery, so to speak. It developed out of unfettered access to the teachings of the Bible. It wasn’t until the the Bible was allowed to be translated into English that the common man had access to the whole council of God with no liturgical filter. The more people who read the Bible, the more people understand there’s no King, Pope, priest, aristocrat, noble or parliament that intercedes between you and God.
Anyway, Asians, Mexicans, Blacks, etc don’t have the heritage Anglo-Americans have. To the extent that people assimilate into Anglo-American culture, they understand the evils of government. To the extent the Anglo-American heritage is ignored, harangued, abandoned, the more people will turn to government.
“The longer Hispanics are in the country, the less they wanted big government!”
Given the rates for 3rd generation latinos, it will only take about 150-200 years for assimilation. So...shut the southern border down for 150 years? Works for me!
