The looming racial chasm

Ronald Brownstein’s recent column points once again to the emerging racial chasm in the US. Obama won 80% of the non-White vote in 2008, and his approval rating among minorities continues to be around 75%. Among Whites, it’s a different story. 44% of college-educated Whites approve of Obama, and only 38% of non-college-educated Whites. If, as Brownstein suggests, these approval ratings reflect future voting patterns, it would mean a landslide against the Democrats by Whites — quite possibly more than the official 58% White turnout for Bush in 2004.

But he also points to the possibility that support for Obama will slip even further among college-educated Whites:

Since 2007, median incomes have plunged more for white families headed by men with a college degree than those headed by men with only high school educations, the Economic Policy Institute reports.

That widening distress changes the political equation. A possible Republican surge next year in blue-collar “beer track” districts remains the biggest threat to the Democrats’ House majority. The Democrats’ vulnerability will deepen, however, if they cannot hold the line in “wine track” districts whose education levels exceed the national average. That’s one way a difficult 2010 election for Democrats could turn catastrophic.

If less than 40% of Whites voted Democrat while twice that percentage are voting Republican, it would indeed indicate a widening racial chasm. Of course, the downside is that there is no evidence that this is anything more than implicit Whiteness. And the Republicans are certainly not going to nominate candidates that would do anything to change this.

Still, it’s only a matter of time — and a fairly short time at that — before everyone realizes that the political landscape is fast becoming a racial landscape. And at that point, explicit assertions of White identity are inevitable.

    When reading statements like “The ‘Western Elites’ will be on the run…”, I can’t help thinking about the proverbial ‘pissed off peasants’ of popular lore, with torches and pitchforks, finally going after their oppressors, with gusto. The satirical, and rather comical full color 1938 Third Reich postcard from Vienna showing oligarchs, communists, social democrats and Jews fleeing before a wall of pursuing swastika banners, is emblematic of what happens when Jewish tormented nations eventually revolt.

    To the question of Implicit becoming Explicit…

    Could be.

    Recently some friends from Italy who lean Left returned from England, shaken. They went there years ago on an exhange program, about twenty years ago, and haven’t been back since.
    During that time they nurtured a lot of the Leftist stuff they picked up there, and in Italy as well of course. But in their part of Italy they were safe, very.
    So the trip shook them to the core. I saw them not long ago and it was visible. Though we don’t share the same politics, like me they love European culture, literature and art, etc. and they definitely love their part of the world. But what stood out from our brief visit was the look on their faces when we talked about their trip to England.
    I think this is happening a lot, and all over.

    Some of the Occidental Observer Intellectuals may scoff at this, but one should point out that way back in the early 1990s militia man Thomas W. Chittum predicted in his tome ‘Civil War 2: the Coming Breakup of America’ that Democrats would become the party of minorities whilst Republicans would become a White party.

    It appears that this is playing out right now.

    I should note that I don’t consider Jews “white” per se, although my remark on Jews making racist remarks to “other whites” may come off this way. What I meant was Jews make racist remarks to myself and other whites. I guess they feel they have a receptive audience or rube at hand. It just underscores the fact that the Jews look down on everyone, but are most scared of whites, the only group capable of knocking them down. Asians are too conformist, compliant and unimaginative.

    I agree with JW. His post matches up with a remark made by a poster in the “Jewish Intermarriage” thread that more and more of his coworkers in the entertainment industry were taking notice of the behaviors, many of them hypocritically ethnocentric, of their Jewish superiors and coworkers. I can sympathize, as I have noticed it too. By this I mean remarks far beyond the usual coworker or friend finally becoming exasperated and pointing out “Jewish Privilege” or arrogance. I’m writing about people now remarking on wealthy, privileged Jews always trying to tie themselves in with blacks, hispanics, Asians and other non-whites, while privately making very racist remarks about these people to other whites! I have supposedly liberal Jews make the most racist remarks about blacks and Mexicans to me you could imagine. But they still support these people with their actions. Anyway, the increasingly notable Jewish hypocrisy is just one of many areas in which they are arrogantly slipping up more and more as time goes on. Ovderly confident to the extreme, they’ve never been known to disbelieve their own press clippings. And they can’t help it, I’m afraid.

    Anyway, it’s amusing to finally hear people remark on “… those Jews always siding up with people who aren’t white like they’re all going to come after us someday.” Yes, I’ve heard (the gist of) this remark from more and more whites in the last year and a half! An army of non-whites led by their Jewish masters going full bore after whites. In a fashion, that’s what the Jews hope for. It won’t work. But it’s their dream, admitted or not. I can say that if the Jews did achieve their dream of ultimate power, the very first whites they’d march off the plank would be those they’ve used as their biggest front men all these years, whether they’re news commentators or columnists putting forth bogus ideas and stats for a few bucks and a pat on the head. Because that’s what the Jews have always done in the past. And others. After all, when it’s over, a traitor is no good to either side.

    To JW Hunter:

    You are spot on! Let’s do all we can to speed this thing up.

    The “Western Elites” will be on the run when the white masses are forced by conditions around them to take matters into their own hands. As fantastical as this may seem to those who consider themselves intellectuals and above such “fantasies”, this is exactly what is going to happen. Conditions are deteriorating and the people in charge are stepping up the pace in their plans. It isn’t going to help. Their innate arrogance and inborn blind spots will work against them. But it is going to get a lot worse for us before things are set straight. We’re dealing with the most hypocritically racist and hateful group to ever walk the planet, despite what others may say or claim to the contrary.

    “And at that point, explicit assertions of White identity are inevitable.”

    You’re probably right. But the trend among Western elites in last decade or so has been to reject multiculturalism (explicit assertions of identity) in favour of assimilationism (post-racialism). If they’re concerned about holding onto their power, this trend will continue.

    Too bad Whites must become a smaller and smaller percentage of the population before explicit proclamations become commonplace.
