Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Prepare to be shocked: One of the Trumpiest candidates in the country repeatedly spoke at a conference whose organizer believes that the "only serious race war" in this country right now is the one targeting white people. The Post reports that Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee in the nationally watched Florida gubernatorial race, has spoken four times at conferences organized by the David Horowitz Freedom Center. The group's conferences have featured a parade of alt-right, white nationalist and Islamophobic heroes, as well as speakers who claim that refugees and immigrants are destroying European culture and that diversity is dumbing down America.

"and that diversity is dumbing down America."

Except that those actually being "dumbed down" are the Fox News watchers. Primarily white, almost exclusively so.

"immigrants are destroying European culture"

Wait a minute.. So when we speak of progressive European ideology, Europe is bad. When we talk about European culture in America as it might be affected by brown immigrants, Europe is good. Apparently, the only Europe the right really likes existed 300 years ago.

And the only America the right really liked existed 50 years ago. Just think back to before the civil rights movement and women's lib movement... basically before women and minorities got so uppity... and you will know when they think America was "great".

Mostly correct but I think you have to go back to say the 1850s for them to be really happy. Slavery, Indentured servitude, Debtors prisons, sweat shops, etc.

There is a difference between a war on White People and a resentment of the 1% who are using divide and conquer tactics to get ever richer under Trump.

This so-called War on White People is why Ann Coulter said Republicans would win every election if only people with all four grandparents born in the US could vote.

They view the rising tide of less than pure Anericans as a deliberate Race War against Americans of white European ancestry.

And they put Democrats on the non-white side of their race war.

Actually it's democrats who put democrats on the non-white side of their race war

and stoke it for all its worth. The sad part is, democrats don't even genuinely care about non-whites,

except for the narrative during election season.

It's a reaction to the fantasy that everybody that's not a democrat is a Nazi, racist, confederate flag, cross burning, Trump lover.

Trump and other members of the GOP have pandered to the racists but the left has fantasized the tent is large enough to fit everybody not a democrat in it.

maybe that's why white people believe a race war is being waged against them.

Ironically, most African-Americans' ancestry in this country goes a lot farther back than that! For many of us, it goes back to the 1600's. I know from tracing the family tree that (at a minimum) my great-grandparents were all born here.

In fact, importation of slaves (officially) ended in 1808, which precedes, e.g., the Irish and Italians, immigration waves.

Yeah I thought the same thing when she made that comment. Ironically it would secure a greater portion of the black
vote than the white vote, I think.

It absolutely would. Just like they think they (RW'ers) are the majority when at most they are 30-35%. Only 27% voted for Trump, the senate majority represents about 18% of the population, and Democratic reps in the House got more total votes than the Repubs. No wonder they hate democracy!

Yeah.

About that.

It would be far more shocking to find a fervent Trump supporter who doesn't believe it.

Maybe the author was just being sarcastic...

The sad part is Democrats are not in charge.

When they are blacks AND whites make economic gains.

Go back to Russia Comrade. Take your lies with you.

The only ones I know who are all whiney about white persecution a middle aged white men and Boaz-o and his white willy. Just goes to show it thinks therefore it is.

Yeah, it's too bad when the last one was in office, race relations took a huge downturn which is evidenced by an extremely large number of polls and research.

Oh I see.
You believe polls now.
You even believe researchers now.

Just not when it comes to global warming, or illegal aliens voting, or the economic impact of tariffs.

Wait, so let me get this straight ... black people are supposed to care that racists resent us making economic gains along with the rest of the population more than we care about making economic gains along with the rest of the population?

THIS is the Okeydoke in a nutshell. This is the same con game of the slave master, the jim crow sheriff, the aparthied bureau of state security, the prison guard, the murderous cop and the "economically anxious" wing of the GOP; "if you just make me happy, your life will be better." No one is falling for that nonsense (except Kanye, I guess.) NOTHING THAT MAKES OUR LIVES BETTER IS GOING TO MAKE YOU HAPPY. SMDFTB with that noise.

The idea that black people need to change to be accepted by white people is the real insult. It is white people that need to change the way they treat people who aren't white. Black people lack the power to change the way white people behave.

Trump and the Fantasy of a Race War Against White People

Fantasy?

Yes, fantasy. A person who asks this question can only be one of three things: a moron, an -------, or a troll, or some combination of the three. What does that make you?

You realize a good portion of democrats are non-white people, right?

You realize only a handful of Republicans have actually seen a non-white person, right?

Maverick, do you support abortion because blacks get more abortions?
