Righty Whitey, Lefty Looney


Of course it's because we're all racists.

White Flight
Previously unreleased results from the 2010 exit polls show a stark gap between whites and minorities and a smaller but still significant difference between blue- and white-collar whites.

President Obama’s path to a second term may rely on states shaped by the same social forces he embodies.

And racism.

By any standard, white voters’ rejection of Democrats in November’s elections was daunting and even historic.

And racist.

Fully 60 percent of whites nationwide backed Republican candidates for the House of Representatives; only 37 percent supported Democrats, according to the National Election Poll exit poll conducted by Edison Research. Not even in Republicans’ 1994 congressional landslide did they win that high a percentage of the white vote.

Until racism reared it's ugly head.

Moreover, those results may understate the extent of the white flight from the Democratic Party, according to a National Journal analysis of previously unpublished exit-poll data provided by Edison Research.

Showing how white, racist conservatives influence politics.

The new data show that white voters not only strongly preferred Republican House and Senate candidates but also registered deep disappointment with President Obama’s performance, hostility toward the cornerstones of the current Democratic agenda, and widespread skepticism about the expansive role for Washington embedded in the party’s priorities. On each of those questions, minority voters expressed almost exactly the opposite view from whites.

Oh, and don't forget to blame it all on Bush.

I wonder how the finger pointers would explain this "racst conservative" voting for Alan Keyes back in 2000? (Yeah, I know he's a crackpot, but he's a truly CONSERVATIVE crackpot!)

The lady doth proest too much, methinks.

Gorges - please don't bother their pointy little heads with facts. You'll just confuse them make them self medicate more than usual. And thanks for mentioning that; I forgot about Keyes.

Bret - if the lady is Pelosi, she's not protesting loud enough. I wanna hear her pitiful screams all the way from DC just before her head explodes.

I don't care if a person is black, white or purple. I'm against anyone who can't figure out which side of their mouth they want to speak and which lie they want to tell first.

That explains so much ... I'm a racist!

sig94 said...

PJ - what's to figure out? If their lips move, they're lying.

sig94 said...

Star - now that's fast.

sig94 said...

Odie - always glad to help. All you need to do now is learn the secret handshake and order your decoder ring. Keep your AM radio tuned to KRAC and wait for the messages.

We're all racists on this bus.

In the lunatic, repulsive world of liberalism the only group denied valid self-interest is a white person. That, in itself is racist.

These are the same type of people who would have told you that the first thing a liberated slave would do is steal your wagon, mule and plow, and rape a white woman.

Liberalism, now, is a whirlpool of all the country's bigotry, superstition, power mania and ignorance.

sig94 said...

Subvet - I am still reeling from your crematorium limk.

Rhod - this is the third time I have tried to respond to your comment. Perhaps I can finish in a few hours when I no longer feel like eating nails and crapping carpet tacks.

I'm rarely surprised by an accusation of racism, but I am constantly amazed by people's fear of the accusation. C'mon, Americans - Grow a set! Sticks and stones, etc.

I remember watching Gran Torino with a predominately young white audience in Sacramento. The audience audibly gasped (repeatedly) at Clint Eastwood's colorful language.

Now we are being told by the Left that words such a "incompetent", "arrogant", and "ignorant" are code words for hatred of blacks. Let's take back our language and have a gay old time!

Wetzy said...

I hate liberals. Does that make me a racist?

Nickie Goomba said...

Wetzy, in America... yes

Rhod said...

Sig, here's what I think.

I lived in the pre-segregatiton American south at an age when I could recognize the derangement of bigotry, and its importance to sustaining the mental equilibrium of the bigot.

It was central; everything else was built upon it. Even the grammar school kids I went to school with relied upon racism for inside humor and a way to share values and express prestige. It was a system for living and also an attitude.

In Costner's "Untouchables", the Eliot Ness character explained his own lawlessness when he said "I became what I beheld", meaning he sank to the level of a criminal to apprehend criminals. Something like it has happened to virtuous liberalism. It's become what it used to fight.

Rhod said...

Nick, how right you are. Where the language goes, so goes the brain.

sig94 said...

Nickie - people do not know how to react to such accusations. It is usually delivered in such a way so the accuser can simply walk away with a smug, self-satisfied smirk without having to justify such a remark. The mere accusation is viewed by liberals as a necessary and sufficient condition to justify the charge. For the lazy and clueless liberal, it is rendered as a tautological truth to avoid the work of supporting it with empirical evidence.

sig94 said...

Rhod - it is pretty pervasive. In my Long Island bedroom community high school graduating class of 400+, there was only one black. I was well into my thirties before I realized what it must have been like for him. He took a white Italian girl to the prom and everyone talked about it - what trash she was and what nerve he had.

What were his choices in a community like ours? His family lived there for years.

Cream of Nothing would be much better than what we've had to endure these last two years of 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8760 hours, 525,000 seconds Each....
Oh and let's remember that a Trillion seconds = 31,687 YEARS !

Holy Goomba !
