  • Democrats Try Wooing Ones Who Got Away: White Men

    "..................What discourages Democrats is that men’s attitudes shaped over generations — through debates over civil rights, anti-Communism, Vietnam, feminism, gun control and dislocations from lost manufacturing jobs and stagnant wages in a global economy — are not easily altered. “Democrats are for a bunch of freeloaders in this world as far as I’m concerned,” said Gari Day, 63, an Avis bus driver from suburban Detroit. “Republicans make you work for your money, and try to let you keep it.” Michael Bunce, 48, buying parts at a Lowe’s in Southfield, Mich., first ascribed his Republican bias to fiscal matters, but quickly...

    December 31, 2013 4:00 AM Good Ol’ Boy, Inc. Reality shows about gold miners, ax men, and ice-road truckers are a far cry from the Kardashians. By Victor Davis Hanson The hysteria over Duck Dynasty reminds us that cable TV is currently inundated with working-class, white-guy reality shows. Top-drawing, relatively low-cost realities showcase gold miners, oil drillers, hunters, locomotive drivers, off-the-grid backwoods eccentrics, fishermen, crabmen, truck drivers, ax men, moonshiners, or the new generation of Beverly Hillbillies. The list of the particular subspecies of the muscular classes is endless. These shows share a few common themes. They do not take...

    22 Stats That Prove That There Is Something Seriously Wrong With Young Men In America By Michael Snyder December 17th, 2012 When are we finally going to admit that we have a very serious problem with this generation of young men in America? We have failed them so dramatically that it is hard to put it into words. We have raised an entire generation of young males that don't know how to be men, and many of them feel completely lost. Sometimes they feel so lost that they "snap" in very destructive ways. Adam Lanza and James Holmes are two...
  • Romney's Defeat Caused by "Extraordinary" Drop in White Male Support[Election Autopsy]

    Failed campaign: Mitt Romney's staff found that he lost an 'extraordinary' number of white, male votes during the election - traditionally key supporters of the Republican party And in another blow, Romney’s own campaign manager also admitted that his infamous 47 per cent comment was ‘the epitome of low during the campaign’ - from which they never recovered. California as he reflects upon what went wrong. Now Neil Newhouse, his campaign pollster, has begun to sift through the data to determine what the key factors were. He said that he had to give ‘credit’ to the Obama campaign for getting...
  • Meredith Whitney : Tea Party members are primarily “freaked out white men”

    Tea Party members are primarily “freaked out white men” who pose the greatest political threat to Democrats in 2012, according to banking analyst Meredith Whitney. Speaking in the broader context of a discussion on CNBC regarding the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of US debt, Whitney said the dissenters represent the type of problems that have led to the current predicament in Washington. “Call it Tea Party, whatever you will, the fringe element is I characterize (as) freaked-out white men who are unemployed and have been unemployed for three years and they’re scared to death,” she said. “Three to four million...

    Members of a new Texas association are starting a college scholarship program for a group of students they say do not have as many scholarship options as others -- white men. Colby Bohannan, a student at Texas State University in San Marcos, and some friends have formed the non-profit Former Majority Association for Equality, which will provide the scholarships. The idea was that there are many scholarships geared toward helping minorities and women attend college, and there are also scholarships for people from certain religions or from certain families. But Bohannan thought his demographic group was missing. Non-Hispanic whites are,...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 12, 2011 | John Fricke
    Newsrooms and hospitals have one major thing in common: the "hush" is the loudest thing anyone ever hears. The "hush" is the moment when normal activity stops cold for an announcement of major events that will entirely reshape any usual activity. While both newsrooms and hospitals stop on that kind of news -- and then, following it, race into a whirlwind of overdrive -- the similarities end there. Hospitals gird for the incoming and the flood of bad news to follow; most newsrooms do not. In a newsroom, tragic events are met with a different vibe: an electric jolt that...

    Victims of the 'he-cession' are turning against the Democrats, and that could sway the November elections. Millions of white men who voted for Barack Obama are walking away from the Democratic Party, and it appears increasingly likely that they'll take the election in November with them. Their departure could well lead to a GOP landslide on a scale not seen since 1994. For more than three decades before the 2008 election, no Democratic president had won a majority of the electorate. In part, that was because of low support -- never more than 38% -- among white male voters. Things...

    It only kills people like Dean Barnett. Not nearly progressive enough. Cystic fibrosis “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” said the motion read to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it… Carleton students have fanned out across the city near the beginning of the school year to raise money to fight the illness for years. But according to the motion read Monday night to student councillors, “all orientees and volunteers should feel like their fundraising efforts will serve the their (sic) diverse communities.”… “I think they see this, in their own...

    OTTAWA -- The Carleton University Students' Association has voted to drop a cystic fibrosis charity as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, supporting a motion that argued the disease is not "inclusive" enough. Cystic fibrosis "has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men" said the motion read Monday night to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it.

    Whomever the Democratics nominate this time, it will be a first: It will NOT be a white male (unless you count Barry as half-white or Hillary as ha--uh, let's not go there). Identity Politics has driven the Democrat race. Guilt-wracked whites, wanting to appear enlightened, have supported the clean and articulate Magic Negro. They were joined finally by blacks, when Bill's dismissive South Carolina comments made them decide Barack was black enough. Meanwhile, old feminist teacher-union types have been supporting Hillary!. But Identity Politics will not be enough to win in November. In order to succeed, the Dem candidate...

    WASHINGTON - In the fierce campaign between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, a battle dominated by issues of race and gender, white men have emerged as perhaps the single critical swing constituency. The competition for the support of white men, particularly those defined as working class, will shape the showdown between Clinton and Obama in Pennsylvania's Democratic presidential primary April 22. Obama of Illinois won majorities among those voters in what appeared to be breakthrough victories in Wisconsin and Virginia last month. But he badly lost working-class white men to Clinton, of New York, in Ohio and Texas two...

    A fire brigade has been accused of pursuing a policy of discrimination after it excluded white men from part of a recruitment drive. Only women and people from ethnic minorities are allowed to attend four of the five open days being held by Avon Fire Service to attract new recruits. The brigade has been criticised after recruitment days were restricted to women and ethnic minorities The fire brigade said it was targeting specific groups because currently 97 per cent of its 921 employees are white men. But MPs, serving firefighters and race relations groups questioned whether it was acting illegally...

    Republican congressional candidate Van Taylor may have broken a record for a campaign commercial. Category: crowding the most brown faces into one frame of TV time. True, they are sort of bled of their brown in the picture, bled also of their humanity. They represent the hordes invading our land to clean our hotel rooms, make meals for us, harvest our crops and in general make our lives, um, livable. Not to dismiss the problem of immigration reform. It's serious business Congress has left undone too long. But to judge the election-year offensive about illegal immigrants, you'd think we were...

    Thirty years ago, New Haven, Conn., civil rights lawyer John R. Williams thrust himself into the public eye representing Black Panther Party defendants. His latest cause, however, is that of a white male lawyer who claims state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal passed him over for a promotion due to an affirmative action program. The attorney general's position is that plaintiff Harold H. Burbank II was not hired as an assistant attorney general -- after years as a paralegal for the office -- because other candidates were more qualified. "They claim," Williams argued in his brief opposing Blumenthal's summary judgment motion...

    The Jan. 28th edition of the Washington Times reports that "George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin are not included in the revised version of the New Jersey Department of Education history standards. The Pilgrims and the Mayflower also are excluded, as well as the word 'war,' which has been replaced with 'conflict' in lessons about the early settlers, colonization and expansion." The educrats and shallow politicians may not like to admit it, but there is a war going on in education, and New Jersey, the location of Washington's great revolutionary victories at Trenton and Princeton, is among the battlefronts. ...
