NBC News ^ | Oct.14.2018 | Opinion - Howell Raines

Posted on 10/14/2018 4:08:16 AM PDT by carriage_hill

Democrats can defeat the Trump base. But only if they ditch Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi — and rally female voters What the angry white male writing this column wants to know is who will hit back for the Democrats?

My polling cohort, older white men, took a public-relations beating during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings — and I say it’s about time. Never in modern political history have so many been given so much by our culture and yet have been so casual about the health of the Republic.

Howell literally “sees” a reality he has constructed, or has been constructed for him. It’s a belief structure, like believing in ghosts or UFO’s. There is no dissuading people like him with verifiable facts or logic. His belief structure is his religion.

Let them do it. That would only ensure that even more white males abandon the Dem Party and migrate to the GOP.

The democrats need to become a viable second party based on real policy differences that do not boil down to - hate America and all its history.

This is not going to happen until they get pummeled over and over again

My diagnosis: Howell Raines is utterly amoral.

Funny how the mainstream media only presents voter anger from white men as irrational, misguided, wrongheaded, etc.

If women, Latinos or whatever are angry, it's always so righteous, pure, justified and needs to be taken very seriously.

“The worst thing Democrats could do is assume that the racism and religious zealotry rearing up across the American political map will simply have to run its course, as did the tsunami of bigotry that made the Ku Klux Klan a national force in the 1920s.”

The author’s opinion is itself a racist sexist diatribe against white men.

Maybe Howell Raines can trumpet Jayson Blair as the new leader for the enraged Democrat party.

I couldn't finish reading this article. The pure naked hate oozes out of nearly every sentence. He's so blinded by the hate that he forgets to stay in the party narratives and inadvertently reveals truths routinely lied about, such as revealing the press as a big gang rather than guardians of objectivity. Trump is an expert at getting leftists to cast aside their masks and showing them for the real monsters they truly are.

I find these kinds of screeds to be a confession of knowledge of guilt. They know they’ve personally done something horribly wrong and are compensating for/excusing it by attempting to attribute the bad behavior to a class of people in which they are a member rather than taking personal responsibility for their own actions.

If he had said “...angry black men” he would have been a racist.

” Never in modern political history have so many been given so much by...Angry White Men. “
There, I fixed it.
These bloodsuckers have been handed their very existence on the backs of hard working, American taxpayers, for the last 75 years, by the so called “leaders” of the democrats.
When that lifeline is cut, as it should be, they’ll be begging (literally!) in the streets.
It’s time to reset their entire thought process.
