The only question I have is....who's winning?
Less than a week after the GOP decided to reach out to Latinos by voting to deport DREAMers (undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country at a young age), Alabama congressman Mo Brooks has given the GOP’s much ballyhooed rebranding an extra bit of “oomph” by claiming Democrats are waging a “war on whites.”
“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” Brooks said in defense of his party’s stance on immigration during a Monday appearance on noted xenophobe Laura Ingraham‘s popular radio show.
“It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things,” Brooks continued.
I guess there's something to this, since the last time that a white person won a presidential race was in 2004. On the other hand, whites have a pretty good success rate in that department (53-0, if I'm not mistaken) and the average net worth of white people in America is 20 times the net worth of African-Americans. Must be one of those asymmetrical wars....
