Why is Identity Politics Evil? Maureen Dowd: "Mitt Romney is the president of white male America."
PJ Lifestyle ^ | November 18, 2012 | Robert Wargas

Posted on 11/20/2012 12:46:21 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It is understandable that those of us who voted against Barack Obama, the Community Disorganizer, should be upset over his triumph. Like Joe Biden reading an Umberto Eco novel, we cannot help but feel rather listless and disoriented these days. Feelings of vulnerability can very easily transmogrify into anger, so one must never lose one’s sense of humor; apropos, I draw your attention to the New York Times of November 10, in which Maureen Dowd reflects on Mitt Romney’s loss:

“Team Romney has every reason to be shellshocked. Its candidate, after all, resoundingly won the election of the country he was wooing.

Mitt Romney is the president of white male America.

Maybe the group can retreat to a man cave in a Whiter House, with mahogany paneling, brown leather Chesterfields, a moose head over the fireplace, an elevator for the presidential limo, and one of those men’s club signs on the phone that reads: “Telephone Tips: ‘Just Left,’ 25 cents; ‘On His Way,’ 50 cents; ‘Not here,’ $1; ‘Who?’ $5.”

In its delusional death spiral, the white male patriarchy was so hard core, so redolent of country clubs and Cadillacs, it made little effort not to alienate women. The election had the largest gender gap in the history of the Gallup poll, with Obama winning the vote of single women by 36 percentage points.”

Forgive the lengthy quote; writing like that is harder to swallow than grape Dimetapp. Note, for instance, the cliches attempting to pass for edgy turns of phrase: white guys in mahogany rooms with moose heads over the fireplaces. (Aren’t Bentleys more suitable to these images than Cadillacs?) Dowd really knows how to squat over the page and deliver nuggets of wisdom...

Obama’s supporters sure seem to be doing a lot of gloating over their victory. I think (within the next twelve months) they will be singing a different tune when the one who is supposed to make all their dreams come true instead shows his true colors once again and plunges America into more destructive wars of choice in countries we care little about.

And lets not even get into all the deals with the devil Obama will have to make in order to move Washington past the upcoming budget battles. The liberals are going to be positively apoplectic when they see that Obama’s plan for ‘fixing’ entitlement spending looks almost identical to Romney’s plan.

Either ways though, I think we (especially conservatives) should take some time to seriously reassess our values. Obama will never bring America back together, and America is broken. The politics of division has set us at each others throats in a way that cannot be healthy for the our nation’s future.

Conservatives can offer a way back to the ideals and the spirit that once made America a shining beacon of hope around the world. All we need is the right message, and the right messenger.

Don’t anyone laugh at this crap.

Demonization such as this always precedes the bandwagon of ostracization, criminalization and eventual eradication.

Don’t think it impossible either.

It happens under EVERY despotic regime that comes to power. There is now a zeitgeist of hating White American bitter-clinger bible thumpers in this nation being broadcast by the prince and the power of the air and his media.

It usually does not take long once a zeitgeist has been reached via propaganda, that open pogroms are initiated and accepted by the masses that buy into the same demonization.

I now know what it must have felt like to have an entire population shun it’s eyes and turn on a people targeted by the rising ideology of national Socialists out of the mechanisms of envy, jealousy manipulated into hatred and revenge.

History is simply repeating itself in the one place we erroneously thought it could never happen.

I find it ironic how Black leaders are trying to segregate themselves from Whites.
It was Black village leaders who sold Black slaves from Africa too.
Given the chance they would enslaves themselves again and blame Whitey.

Lets also not forget that it was rich plantation owners like Maureen Dowd who fought
against freedom for Blacks. The Dems still have them enslaved.

women only gained the right to vote this past century, just when this country started its slide.

founders knew something about who should and should not be allowed to vote?

MD, back to the kitchen as ye are too old for the nursery, and yer politics stink!

Well, I'm a white male, I don't golf, don't belong to a Country Club, and where I grew up, was not of the demographic which drove Cadillacs, although I have owned a couple of Lincolns, which even a Democrat President was dying to ride in...

Now, get a clue, Maureen. Some of the GOP chose Romney to be the candidate. Most everyone who voted for him who was not already on the bandwagon early on did so because the major alternative was a thieving socialist administration which has such things to its credit as requiring people to buy something or pay a fine even it goes directly against their (non-Muslim) religion, the 'redistribution' of trillions of dollars and not so much as a fighter plane to show for it, and directly and repeatedly demeaning the selfsame demographic you decry.

While the first two are execrable, the latter is no way to win hearts, minds, or votes.

As a matter of fact, with your pandering to the liberals, you have casually slapped all of Caucasian male America in the face (whether we fit your stereotype or not), you racist, sexist, socialist, b*tch.

Think that will entice anyone to buy your stinking drivel? Think again. You aren't winning any hearts or minds here.

Why should rich white males vote against their self interest, Mauldeen?

So you expect us to vote with the interest of the 20’s something Sundra Flucke like ninnies seeking free birth control?

Or with the welfare mother raising those babies she did not abort on our dimes?

Perhaps we should vote with the homosexuals who have benefited greatly from tax payer funded research in finding a remedy for a virus spread by sodomy, and siphoned billions of health care dollars away from medicare and medicaid through the years.

Or with the union thugs that raise the cost of everything, and the public servants who make three times their private enterprise counterparts in salary and benefits.

I wonder why on earth anybody would vote against their own best interest.

And one last thing, Mauldeen, who is subsidizing your New York City apartment?

Probably some rich white male.

Ms. Dowd, if you’re attempting to paint this as a racist thing, keep in mind that slick Willie got relatively the same amount of white votes that Obama got.

Hey Dowd - I am a woman who voted for Romney and I wish nothing but the worst in life for Obama and his voters. May they reap what they have sown — in spades. May you all spend your golden years poor and broke instead of the cushy lives you live now.

Naturally the Dowdster is gloating.But she's not worth getting one's knickers in a twist, because her influence only extends to her fellow, anti-male females and various self-hating lib males. Obama's victory represents for her and her benighted fellow frustrated females another victory for the sisterhood over the dreaded, evil patriarchy. Malcontents like Dowd have been festering with rage since their college days over the dominance of white males who they blame for all their problems. And if you read the radical feminist literature of the sixties and seventies (like I did), you'd know these morons think there's no such thing as a female who was ever responsible for anything bad that ever happened in their lives.

So as of now we have the ignorati in control of the country. They elect socialists like Obama. They don't read Dowd...most of the ignorati don't read much of anything much less scribblers for the Slimes. So let Mo rant away. She's actually read by very few people. Eventually her meaningless career will stop. She's more to be pitied and laughed at than taken seriously. Radical feminism created the bitter writer we know as Mo Dowd and ruined her life. And the sum total of good she's done for her country is naught. But she'll be wallowing in her misery up until the end taking it out on all those evil, white males who made her life miserable.

This all goes back to the failure in the Romney/ US senate campaign. I’ll never understand what goes on in the heads of some of these so called GOP-E “campaign geniuses”....Dowd is gloating because the Romney campaign was responding to the Demo-com agenda not establishing its own...What’s worse the GOP is still doing it. Bread and butter issues . Cost of living and its causes particularly if created by policy affects the nation,college kids, women, illegals, blacks, seniors et-cetera et-cetera et-cetera. Why are they buying into this Balkan construct ?

Expecting voters to know what’s going on and their reliance on MSM is just part of why our great loss. While there are examples of fraud which may close up the gap, the gap is too big to blame the loss on fraud ...Expecting GOP E’s to address media bias or Romney to call Obama a congenital liar or even point out that the fact and figures released by the white house were allways questionable is another Let alone call him a “socialist”.. But the fault lies really in the messaging the Republican campaign came up.choking on political correctness parameters or triping over past positions on global warming and Romneycare both of which were bread and butter issues. .Then busy responding to pseudo positions devised by the demo-com party and echoed by their hand maiden camp followers in the media allowing them to set the agenda ..

Romney ran a “Johnny One Note Campaign”. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..

They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama past due 2013/14 Tax Increases.

The impact of Obama’s gagging energy resources (a socialist construct never branded as such) with policies requiring reliance on intermittent green resources wind and solar and that resulted in massive corruption..never brought up .,Restricted use of drilling, and coal ,bans and on fracking, and resulting prices doubling on everything.. This was a bread and butter issue which reached into every “demographics” pocketbook including accepting the demo-com definition of hyphenated African-Hispanic -Americans .
Also
The impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents and on and on. . Some were very briefly touched most weren’t and Benghazi/ foreign policy was left to languish. Then there is Obama’s personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it. Even after the Christi thing if that was brought up it would have blunted the impact.

Instead we got a sales pitch on executive ability but not the reason why one should toss the old model and buy his. That print and tv pitch , 20 million new jobs, was given a discrarded dose of skepticism .

In addition Rove who I understand was handling the Charter PAC senate campaign played games. His material never warned voters that IF OBAMA GETS RE-ELECTED AND SENATE CONTROL REMAINED . .. OBAMACARE AND ALL THE TAX INCREASES THAT GO WITH IT WILL NEVER GET REPEALED Let alone tie into or cover the formentioned grape shot which would have perhaps changed that body. I don’t recall any of that material directed toward that fact.

Finally they didn’t believe the polls which turned out were dead on. Even going as far as setting up focus groups which could have looked into what’s going on . Even to the point of going out to local eateries and bars and eavesdrop into conversations and pick up on topics being discussed.(chat rooms twitter too contrived) They would have learned their turnout projections were off and the sence of urgency to get out the vote was diminished by their glowing projections and disbelief never mind ORCA which should have been tested. COMPLACENCY WAS ENCOURAGED BY THE MEDIA AND NOT COUNTER ACTED UPON

Our local small population (-8000) rural blue county GOP had at the outset good and growing attendence at their meetings 50 plus. At the meeting the Thursday before the election only about a dozen people showed up and I knew we were in trouble .

Nuts...This loss is inexcuseable, while I truly don’t believe Mitt Romney would ever continence losing, I’m begining to believe that most GOPE’s really didn’t want to see AHCA, (affordable health care act) otherwise known as ZerO care go ..

Dowd reveals what the left really thinks about White males with a European ancestry. The left hates them and wants to eliminate them.
Dowd is an angry female of the canine species, and hates men.

They already had noticed before the election, and there was a lot of grumbling about it, but they voted Dem anyway.

The big upset will come when they can no longer deny that it is impossible to give everybody what they want.

White women voted republican also just like they always do, the left is leaving that out, which amounts to them lying to create a perception even more racist and sexists against men who are white.
