Received an email from a reader linking me to this article in the Aspen Times Weekly.

In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man

There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.”

He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

Amen brother!

Maybe some of those "angr white men" should stop hiring so many of those illegals to work in their companies or in their homes, raising their children, so that they and their wives can go off and make the REAL salaries. Maybe if they stop doing that, then they won't be so angry.

If you want to see angry white men, just look at the P.O.s in Area 3 and portions of Area 5 when every Starbucks closes for three hours on 26 Feb.

It will be very sad up there.

Then tell him to stop playing the race card at all his campaign appearances. He's become very black all of the sudden; hhhmmm, wonder why?

The funny thing is the black populace is rallying around him like he is the next coming of Christ, they obviously don't realize that he only becomes black when it suits him. He was raises by his white mother and stepfather, he lives in a million- dollar house in Hyde Park, far removed from the "people." He really seems concerned about the underpriveldged and poor... My ass...

It's Not All Real said...

Angry white men fucked things up in this country for years. It was angry white men that formed the KKK and pulled all the other Jim Crow bullshit in the south.

It was angry white men who terrorized freedom riders in the south when they tried to help blacks register to vote. Angry white men rigged the deck.

BUT, those angry white men who did all that shit are either dead or almost dead. I'm just a regular white guy and I didn't do any of that shit. I treat people the way I wish to be treated and don't care what color or creed you are, just as long as you're not an asshat.

Unfortunately, I and millions of other white men like me are paying for the sins of our forefathers, and that is total bullshit.

It's too bad people can't just start fresh and judge everyone based on the NOW, not on the PAST. But I guess I should get real.

"Angry white men fucked things up in this country for years. It was angry white men that formed the KKK and pulled all the other Jim Crow bullshit in the south."

Those were stupid men, not angry men. You'll find stupids in all races and genders. But I can understand the 21st century angry white man. The grandparents on my father's side were (legal) Irish immigrants. On my mother's side, my great-great-great grandfather died fighting for the Union army. So, no slaveowners here. But I and my children still endure reverse discrimination in everything from hiring to school loans because we are white. We can be defiled in movies and the press because we're white & Christians. But unlike Michelle Obama, I've always been proud to be an American. Also, unlike Clinton & Obama, I've got much to be proud of, like my CPD son and 2 other sons (officers) in the U.S. Army.

Unfortunately,I believe this country has gone past the point of NO return.

McCain,Clinton,Obama are all Leftist liberals who are going to put the final nails in the coffin. The death of America is occurring and it is intentional. The price of gasoline will soon be $4.00-$4.50+.

Thank McCain for that one. The McCain/Lieberman Bill adds .50cents a gallon to every gallon of gasoline sold in the USA. Oil hit over $100 a barrel yesterday too. Taxes keep going up,home values plummet,the stock market getting ready to crash,two forgotten wars being waged and the dollar not worth the value of the paper its printed on.

But,were not in trouble.

Does anybody know what Brittney Spears is doing? I haven't watched the news in a day.

I believe you had a link to Anne Coulter's website at one time listed on your blog. Please take a look at this:

OMG,this is really sick. Someone posted a message on SCC to Google Obama,sex,cocaine and limousine.

I looked it up and can't believe that I am just hearing about this now. The media can really suppress a story when they want to. I didn't know that Obama engaged in cocaine induced homosexual limousine sex.

You have to see this and pass it on to all of your friends. People need to know what the possible, future President of the United States is all about.

Hey... It's the white guys who are hiring the mexicans, and the white guys who are voting at shareholder meetings to cut costs and improve dividends by shipping jobs to India. White guys run the oil companies that are gouging you at the pump. Something to think about as you claim "Angry White Man" status.

All true. And it's because the white guys go to school, work hard, get married to the women they have babies with and take care of their homes and neighborhoods. You are describing the people in this country who have made a success out of themselves. They hire the mex's because nobody else wants to work. They cut costs to weed out the injury fakers and slackers who bloat the payrolls and they send jobs overseas to avoid the ridiculously high unemployment and welfare taxes that eat up profits. Make fun of these guys all you want, but they've built a country that everyone in the world (who wants to work hard) dreams of coming to.

Angry Whitemen got us into Iraq and caused us to lose the respect of the rest of the world. An angry whiteman (Cheney) caused us to half do the job in Afghanistan. We had an opportunity to vanquish Al Queda in Afghanistan. Instead we invaded Iraq and made it safe for the Iraqi President to visit. An angry whiteman left us with an economy that is in shambles. An angry whiteman's lack of oversight and vision with respect to complex economic issues is going to cause a lot of angry whitemen and angry white women to lose homes that they purchased as a result of ignorance on the part of the buyer and greed on the part of the lenders.

With the way things are now I think perhaps Huckabee, Clinton or Obama all represent plausible choices. They all have workable out of the box solutions to address the gross errors of the Bush Administration's foreign policy and economic policies. I cannot think of a single achievement that has come out of the Bush Presidency except its aid to Sub Saharan African countries.

John McCain's time has passed. It is time to hand the torch over to a new generation that will put America first and come up with authentic and workable solutions to restoring America's promise and leadership. A new generation will not develop its policies in a ideological vacuum but instead will consult its allies and think of the global ramifications of its actions. America's sub prime mess has infected the entire global economy.

Oh and don't let me forget about the prospect of gas at $4.00 per gallon. Due to angry white male policies we may have to give up our Surburban and buy a Hyundai van to make the commute from Edison Park to the westside. But right now I'm going to piss off the neighbors and crank up some AWB, The Dixie Chicks, and the Gypsy Kings while I enjoy a Mimosa and some Quiche my
M2 (Norwegian) husband is preparing as I type.

Strange, but I doubt Obama will even acknowledge that goofball video on YouTube. I don't know if any responsible person would!
Get wrapped around the idea that Obama may well be our next President. It's really starting to look that way. My best guess is, it will really depend on who he and McCain pick as VPs. That will be the hammer that drives the November nail. Hillary and Huckabee will only be brief memories, if that, by next winter.
