National Media Theme: Voting Block Is Becoming Less White

by Rick Olson

Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman.’ Wouldn’t they have to withdraw? New racism is no better than old racism. —Newt Gingrich

The vote is in. Obama is still President. The Republican establishment got exactly what they wanted: Romney as a candidate; a losing candidate. And despite their tireless inane mantra during the primaries exclaiming, “Romney is the only guy who can beat Obama” So what be the post-game analysis now? Romney lost. Romney was never a conservative. He said he was a conservative but we all knew differently…and like so many others we voted for him because voting for Obama was not an alternative for us.

But the real story here is what the biased, liberal  in-the-bag lamestream media has to say about it the morning after:  America, because it is less white, voted for Obama.

NBC News stated two days ago…

All about turnout — and racial composition:Obama 48%, Romney 47% among likely voters. If anything is likely to decide this very close presidential contest, it probably comes down to turnout (duh!), as well as the racial composition of the electorate. Since the campaign began, Team Obama has assumed that whites would make up 72% of voters, down from 74% in 2008. (The logic: This percentage has decreased in every U.S. election, and the minority population continues to grow.)

ABC News declares,

“A coalition of women and nonwhites helped re-elect President Obama to a second term tonight.”

CBS News’ narrative claims,

Whereas Mr. Obama enjoyed overwhelming support among black and Latino women, white women supported Romney, 56-42 percent. In addition to non-married women, other key components of Mr. Obama’s constituency were young people, racial and ethnic minorities.

Politico’s Jonathan Martin this morning declares, “Election aftermath: GOP soul-searching: ‘Too old, too white, too male’? Republicans face a crisis: The country is growing less white, and their coalition has become more white in recent years.

In May of 2012, the Brookings Institute opined, “Why Minorities Will Decide the 2012 U.S. Election,” stating that,

“Obama and the Democrats believe demography is on their side. Census 2010 made abundantly clear that racial and ethnic minorities, especially Hispanics, are dominating national growth and will for decades to come. The Democratic agenda— favoring broader federal support for medical care, housing, and education seems designed to curry the favor of these groups, which played a huge role in tipping the balance in his favor in several key swing states.”

As I web search the various sources and stories, the internet is awash with spin along racial and ethnic lines, calling white voters, “the new minority.”  Is This is the new American apartheid? Are we now engaged in a new policy of segregation drawn along political and economic lines, where people of European descent are now marginalized? I will probably get called a Racist for merely asking the question. But that is to be expected because this is the era where the definition of racism is whatever the left says it is.

Sour grapes that things didn’t turn out as I wished? Certainly. I concede that. But, like so many others like me, there has never been a time in my nearly 50 years on earth that I’ve ever had a substantial personal stake in any election, either.  I never thought the day would ever come where I’d bear witness to such stark polarization along racial lines as we are seeing today.

Supposedly, the current era advocates, preaches, extols and waxes pop-culturally, this notion of, “tolerance.” except, that is if you’re a white guy. So, as the dust settles from the worst President in U.S. History being re-elected following a campaign of class warfare, race-baiting and other cornucopia of lies and deceit, the “free stuff” generation has spoken.

In the Atlantic in 2009 Hua Hsa inquires,

“The Election of Barack Obama is just the most startling manifestation of a larger trend: the gradual erosion of “whiteness” as the touchstone of what it means to be American. If the end of white America is a cultural and demographic inevitability, what will the new mainstream look like—and how will white Americans fit into it? What will it mean to be white when whiteness is no longer the norm? And will a post-white America be less racially divided—or more so?

It would appear the, “more so” theory prevails today under this pretext of tolerance.

    There is only one candidate who could’ve beaten Obama. Jon Huntsman. This unenrolled independent would’ve voted for Huntsman. A majority of Americans would have. But NOOOOO . . . the GOP would have none of that. So they chose the chameleon from Massachusetts. And instead of continuing in the “moderate Mitt” mold he decided to court the tea party and kowtow to the fundamentalist, social conservative, tea-party fringe. THAT is why he lost.

    Anyone who knows anything about politics is saying the same thing today: the GOP needs to wake the hell up and realize that it’s not 1952 it’s 2012. They need to kick the tea-partiers to the curb and become a big-tent again in order to remain a viable party.

      “Anyone who knows anything about politics is saying the same thing today” Really? What do you know about the Tea Party? I am willing to bet that there are members of your family that are part of the tea party movement. They are just ordinary people who feel like their backs are against the wall. And for all the pejorative insults, and degradation hurled at these people, they are still “Americans…my next door neighbors…your neighbors….

      There is one certainty…You demonstrably listen to the lamestream media and soak in what they say like a sponge. You call yourself an unenrolled independent, yet you come across more like a whiney, pissy liberal. Making the Republican party look more like the democrat party is the reason why Republicans lose.

      Nice diversion, by the way…you pulled a “Timmy”…totally commented off topic and deflected from the issue and thesis of the blog. cheers, mate! as only a toerag might.

        I “demonstrably listen to the lamestream media”?!?!? Well I listened to Peter St James on 107-the pulse on the way to work today and Howie Carr on the way home from work today – are they “the lamestream media?!?!?” Howie was cryin’ in his beer about like you guys are . . . speaking of which, are YOU GUYS the lamestream media???

        You know Rick, I’m not the enemy. I’m not the one who moved next door to your shooting range and said, “OH MY, there’s a SHOOTING RANGE NEXT DOOR LOVEY . . . we MUST close it down!” But fine, go ahead – make me the enemy. Heck, I bet if I tried to join your F&G club you wouldn’t let me in just because we don’t see eye to eye on issues outside of hunting and fishing. You’d think someone like yourself – after his party took the beating it took last night – would have enough real enemies not to go creating windmills to tilt at.

        As for why the GOP lost – I do not believe that Romney lost because he was too liberal. You may have been able to make that argument pre-Ryan – but not now. He had the conservatives in the bag because of Ryan. No, he didn’t lose because he was too liberal – he lost because he was too conservative. Caucasians are still the majority in this country – but they’re not a huge majority and they won’t’ be a majority for long. That’s simply the reality of the situation. Romney’s “pup-tent” philosophy wasn’t inclusive enough. He didn’t take into account the importance of the host of minority groups out there and how much of a difference they would make in an election when considered in toto. The GOP needs to have a serious heart-to-heart with itself and decide whether or not it wants to live in the 21st century or live in the past.

          Thanks for making my point with that follow up. Paper thin sensitivities…now, comment on my post. And if all it took was my feedback to make you an enemy, you were never ever reliable to begin with…I don’t know who you are, and for that matter, don’t much care. But I do know who my friends are. YOu seem to think I like Romney…

          • IWKAGGP

            Well . . . I’m actually HOPING that you like Romney – the alternative would be Ron Paul . . . and I thought you were smarter than that.
