Skip to comments.New York Times: GOP Dwindling Collection of 'Angry,' 'Grumpy Old White Men'
Posted on 11/08/2012 8:20:22 PM PST by chessplayer
The New York Times issued a triumphant editorial Thursday, "Republicans, Unplugged A diverse America hear the right-wing appeal to fear and resentment and didn't buy it."
Well leave the Republicans to their discussions in quiet rooms in the hope that at least a few are suggesting throwing out their old and failing playbook, seemingly written by and for a dwindling society of angry white men.
....But the Republicans dont have a Hispanic problem. They have an America problem, a country that is growing more diverse and, on a wide range of issues, shows a sensible moderation and social tolerance far out of step with radio ranting and Tea Party rigidity. It wasnt just Hispanics who heartily rejected Republicans on Tuesday. It also was African-Americans, Asian-Americans, young people and, to perhaps the greatest effect, women.
Nicholas Kristof took the same "old white men' tack in his Thursday column, "Can Republicans Adapt?"
America is changing. After this election, a record 20 senators will be women, almost all of them Democrats. Opposition to same-sex marriage used to be a way for Republicans to trumpet their morality; now its seen as highlighting their bigotry.
An astonishing 45 percent of Obama voters were members of minority groups, according to The Timess Nate Silver. Many others were women or young people. Thats the future of America, and if the Republican Party remains a purist cohort built around grumpy old white men, it is committing suicide. Thats bad not just for conservatives, but for our entire country.
” a dwindling society of angry white men.” with guns and swords .... many are old with not a lot to lose . Lock & load gentlemen , for God and Country , one last time ....
New York Times: GOP Dwindling Collection of ‘Angry,’ ‘Grumpy Old White Men
Lodi90: Born free, won’t die in chains. FUNYT
Id rather be angry than be a Marxist Commie prick like those in the Dem party
“New York Times: —— Dwindling Collection of Angry, -—Old —— Men”
A little projection there, I guess
Well, then, why did one of your articles state that the country, at the state level, move further to the right? Why did more states elect Republican governors, and legislators, and other state officials. If the party is fading Mr. NYT writer, then why did it gain strength state by state?
What is the Dead Pool bet for when the NYT goes bankrupt?
Hey! Watch it you Nytimese jerks.. I resemble that remark.
Hey Clay. Clay Waters, yeah you.
Your article about the old and grumpy White men, yeah - - - - .
That wasn’t your way of sticking it to you editors at the NYT was it?
Maybe the big bosses?
No, you wouldn’t - - - - ! No! Not the OWNER of the NYT?! Hope he doesn’t figure it out!
I’m glad the usual MSM suspects all have their coordinated narrative out on why the GOP *lost* this sham election.
I would not say Republicans are the party of “angry white old men”. I’d say they are the party of the people who pay for all the programs the Democrats create.
I heard Rush talking about this today with a black, conservative, Republican woman today. The issue is that the Dems and the media get away with making Republicans look that way. We need a fighter to show the way. Allen West for President!!
New York Times: Dwindling Collection of Angry, -Old Girly Men
Of course not a single pub will criticize the NYT for demonizing white people which is exactly what they are doing. Also funny how the “smart” set can’t learn a basic history lesson of North America - as sure as the population changes, so do the borders.
The one good thing I do know is that the Gary Lady will dies before I do. Good riddance.
It appears to me that the NY Times suffers from bigotry. Bigotry of people based on age, race, and sex (old, white, men) is a vile hateful trait. I’d say someone needs to be fired for such bigoted crap.
Wasn’t the family hiring a guy who runs around with pedophiles or something? i wouldn’t bother with the NYTimes anymore.
Nah, the problem with Republicans that they are the Forrest Gump party, “Stupid is as stupid does.”
We have a significant portion of the party who is too worried about being popular. This was George Bush’s problem. Then we have the ultra-conservative part of the party doesn’t seem to care who they offend with their judgmental diatribes. The Republican Party is in the midst of an identity crisis and failed to find common ground in the constitution.
As I see it, the central core of the Republican Party should be based on the God-given rights of man, each man, without a thumb on the scales to benefit certain special interest groups. The inherent rights of man are best served by a small government. At this point, the biggest threat to equal rights and a small government are the public sector unions and “social justice”, which Obama described as “revenge”.
Reining in the public sector unions and their collective bargaining rights will defeat a whole lot of the Progressive agenda, without getting into cuts to government programs. Start with the unions and go from there. Once the Democrats cannot buy the votes of the public sector unions, the rest will fall into line much more easily.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper
How offensive New York Times!!! Anyone and everyone is welcome in the GOP who wants to contribute to a vibrant society.
Did you ever stop to think the Dem party is made up of self described whiney minority victims?
The dems have black people who love to see themselves as propetual victims of non-existant racism. You have hispanics who are here in America for the free ride. And you have young women who see commercials while they are watch Honey Boo-Boo convincing them the GOOP wants to take their birth control away.
Your entire base is the lazy, the ill informed, the under educated, the apathetic, and the victim class. Go to Hell NY Times.
(It's an old trick but like the same crap against us Goldwater supporters.. it did not work. I see that they are trying again today.. what is it they say about doing the same thing over and over expecting different results?)
I think the effort to get Limbaugh was tied to the movie "Falling Down" where a white guy goes violent not able to handle losing his defense job, breaking up with his wife, and them.
I’m ready. Its going to be a target-rich environment soon enough.
So, Allen West, Mia Love, Linda Martinez, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindahl, Nikki Haley, Condaleeza Rice, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, and Ted Cruz are angry white men? Who knew?
The newapaper is right. Look around. In 20 years these majority non-white children will be voting age. Texas will be blue. Who else? Georgia? Definitely Florida. NC. CO. Do the math. They won’t respect the nation’s history. To most of them history began with the civil rights movement. I don’t want my father’s world destroyed and defiled, and hisa grandchildren split asunder, but that’s a real threat. I will protect mine and teach them all they need to know. But they’re already 5th class citizens. The white liberals’ children will pay the hardest. Sad.
Yep, like those grumpy white men that went into Normandy and died on the beach saving Europe. Like those grumpy white men who saved the Jews from the gas chambers. Those grumpy white guys who build what was once the freest and most charitable nation on Earth.
0m0slems couldn't do it even with free top name entertainment acts!
Yeah, this seems to be the Dem Narrative. I have been hearing all day. They have been pushing it hard on message boards, on article posts and in news stories.
Hmm, well, I’m old, I’m white, I’m pretty angry right now, I’m a Republican, but as I look at myself, I still seem to be female. Guess I don’t count.
New York Times: Dwindling Collection of Angry, -Old Girly Men!”
The remedy coming from the Dems are for the Republicans to
just become Dems themselves.
We still own the Congress, knuckleheads.
You forgot " with lots and lots of guns and increasingly nothing to lose"
The New York Times is a bunch of grumpy old faggoty white men and crotchety old ugly white women and snarlish old white dykes who nurse their eternal vitriol for everything decent and good.
They are the ones that hate humanity and believe we should all go back to the stone age to avoid global warming, which is a monumental hoax.
They live in an imaginary world and hurl threats at a the real world because it doesn’t conform to their imaginary world.
As for dwindling. Guess who is dwinding the most? The New York Times circulation and earnings. The only bunch of people headed for the big flush are those old, white and insane crowd at the New York Times.
