Slate Writer: White Guys Voting for Romney 'In Defiance of Normal Americans'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 11/04/2012 8:22:55 PM PST by chessplayer

Remember when liberals scoffed at the fact that Romney could win more than 60% of the white vote? Not only has Romney successfully tackled that hurdle, and liberals are apparently mad about it. Tom Scocca of Slate Magazine wrote on November 2 about the “tribal appeal” that Mitt Romney has with whites and why “white people think” he’ll be a better president. I’ll give you a hint: It’s R _ C I S M.

After proudly declaring his support for President Obama (and how Slate will traditionally list all its staffers' votes for the Democrats), Scocca insists they are not in a liberal bubble. He channels the insufferable and dismissive tone American liberalism has successfully monopolized over the past years. He claims “White men are supporting Mitt Romney to the exclusion of logic or common sense, in defiance of normal Americans.”

Betcha Tom What’s-his-name (never heard of him) lives in a overwhelming white part of town, his friend(s) are all white, and he’s guilty as hell over his own feelings of inferiority.

Looks like us separating those who are democrats gutter people from “normal people”, has taken a hit by the propaganda ministers. It was sticking and stinging the “sluts”. :)

They did this when political correctness stuck to their noses. Suddenly liberals were tagging normal, pro freedom people as politically correct and gutter commie/socialist people were politically incorrect. Radical Bill Mahr made a TV show off that lie. Over time, people had no idea what political correctness actually means in it’s marxist/culturally cleansing roots and how it is used by liberals.

Hey Slate: It’s the Marxism, stupid!

Color is irrelevant to conservatives - it’s all about ideas. (I know that’s a foreign concept to a libtard.)

I’m a white guy who already voted for Romney. I have never considered myself “normal”. All my life I have been a fringe “bitter clinger”. I happy about it though.

I can tell you what he thinks, although I've never heard of him before, he thinks you all are a bunch of "uncle Toms" and that informs me that he is the racist.

I wonder what he would say if we had a Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell for a candidate and he saw how avidly conservatives got behind him? I don't really wonder because he would call those great men racists too.

Romney may garner 60% of the white vote and those people are racists according to this clown. So tell me again what percentage of blacks are voting for Obama?

The left has so over-used the term “racist” that it really no longer has much meaning. Sort of like “Nazi.”

What mentality could spew this nonsense without laughing.?...
If this was said in my presence I start laughing quickly..

White racism morphed in a KKK bizarro world..
White racism against WHITES.. by a white person...

Would make a good cartoon.. Wiley E. Coyote’s racist assistant.. albino coyote..

I’m impressed at just how little hostility towards African Americans Obama has generated in the white community. In the last half century we had achieved the conditions were real racial healing could have began in the country. We were on the cusp of good things before BHO.

But because of the left we live in a country where it is almost mandatory to “vote the race” in every aspect of life if you are Black or Hispanic. I have no doubt that this will eventually reignite a genuine resurgence of white racism if we keep hurdling down the path we are on and it just breaks my hart.

We are becoming a nation so divided that the future looks very dark for all races. We are turning into a gigantic Rwanda, Bosnia, or Lebanon. Not good.

Well, bless their little hearts! It's “Normal Americans”; so, what are those “Normal Americans” exactly?

Team Obama wrote off white folks as “not optimal”. OK, I understand that. After Team Obama wrote-off a significant portion of their voters, how does one complain that you're not getting those votes? Inquiring minds would like to know.

That's what happens when they have allowed demons to posses them.
No, they are not " born " that way or have some gene... they have chosen to be that way or allowed the demons to posses them.
In the bible God says that since they have believed " the lie " that he sent them strong delusions.
Also the bible tells us that God gave them over to that.

Soon my remaining parent, my father, will be denied an opera-
by a government bureaucrat because he is too old. I will wait
longer for my own medical treatment because providers are
leaving the medical field in droves. Businesses will close be-
cause they can’t afford to purchase healthcare. My employer
may be among those who cease operations. All thanks
to President Obama.

The wealthy will start paying more taxes so I”ll feel OK
until they figure out that the money is really with the
middle class so they will get a tax hike too. If I am still
working I’ll have Obama to thank.

My whole world is now upsidedown because homosexuals
will be able to marry just like my mom and dad did thanks
to Obama.

I can look forward to a Supreme Court that will rule in
ways that will destroy my 2nd Amendment rights and an
EPA that will choke commerce thanks to Obama. Tax money
will continue to be flushed down a green hole thanks to
Mr Obama.

All of this and much more is on the horizon if Obama is
re-elected.

But if I vote for President Obama at least I won’t be a
racist.

People have to remember that nitwits like Scocca almost certainly come out of super-liberal/leftist university bubbles where they are inculcated with this the "white privilege" crapola and all the arrant leftist nonsense that permeates the university world. These dopes would have you believe that everything comes down to race and conservatives would eagerly vote for the most leftist president ever if he were totally white. And that the same white people who voted for Obama in 2008 because he was black will now vote for Romney because Obama is black.

Don't try to delve too deeply into these morons's thought processes. You'll get infected yourself. The sure sign of mentally deficient scoundrel is his cries of racism at every opportunity.

Don’t fool yourself. Whites have watched what blacks did with power.

Just because you don’t hear from the National association of white people :), does not mean white people have not watched the racist display of Holder’s people.

Usually, they don’t look to get even, lucky for Blacks. But they will not fall the the bs race line again for a long time. Liberals are raving, violent racists who hate white normal people and advocate violence against them.
