Are you an “Angry White Man?”


If so, columnist Gary Hubbell from the Aspen Times Weekly thinks you’re part of an unforgotten group that has yet to be recognized, and will decide this year’s upcoming Presidential Election.

It’s a fun read!


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.

Read more, and find out what he thinks of certain candidates after the jump.

(Angry White Man continued…)

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.

ted-turner-angry.jpgHe’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.

You guys make me laugh. Midnight, you missed the point entirely and are still stuck in pre-civil war America. Please feel free to ignore anything that has happened since then. I’m not going to bother saying it all again you either get it or you don’t. Other than what JFK said you have nothing to offer. I was hoping you would say something about Condoleeza, but perhaps one day the Republicans will follow suit and raise up some black members of their party, until then I guess it’ll be more old white guys. Also have you ever asked yourself how people feel about Republicans? The actual history aside, because generally people just don’t know enough anyway. So if you stick to the here and now, I wonder what kind of answer you would get if you actually asked which party people feel is more tolerant of their race. Strand Tramp, bible-thumper is used because instead of concerning themselves with issues that actually make a difference in the health and wealth of the nation, they are more moved by Gay marriage, Terry Shiavo, and prayer in school, creationism, and making sure the boobies stay hidden. Of course, Sex is bad. I’ve never been woken early on a Saturday morning by a Jew. I’ve never had to listen to some Hasidic guy preaching to me at the top of his lungs on the train, on the street or anywhere else. Not that I would understand Hebrew anyway, but you get the idea.… Read more »

You think liberal democrats are more tolerant now than they have been in the past? Maybe towards minorities they are, though I would argue they are more patronizing than anything else. But they have been shown to be time and time again to be intolerant of whites (especially white males), conservatives, Christianity, Isreal, business, anyone who has achieved any measure of financial/professional success, property rights, individual rights and anyone who doesn’t agree with their narrow minded “politically correct” viewpoints. And more importantly, Liberal Democrats like to impose their viewpoints on everyone else by passing all sorts of laws that force us to do X, Y & Z. They don’t at all support freedom from government interference, individuality or liberty. They just pay lip service to these ideals.

the dumb drunk racist redneck of the south is usually a union member and always a democrat. whereas the fiercly independent southerner dislikes govt interference in America (going back to the days of the “revenuers”) and will usually be a republican. while he may spend less time at his church than Jews in NYC spend at their temples, that somehow makes him a “bible thumper” according to the urban liberals infesting NYC and SF.

[quote comment=”69691″]That being said, tell me what the Republicans have done for minorities that deserves so much praise?[/quote]

I’ll asnwer that with one of the most famous quotes from a decent man under the brand name of a Democrat but whose tax cutting, strong military, preemptive war foreign policies were Conservative Republican (not the other kind of evangelistic Republican I do not agree with).

[quote]And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.
– John F. Kennedy[/quote]

You focus on what has so and so done for me lately. It’s not about dependency, I repeat over and over. Dependency is keeping people down – a form of oppression. Create the environment of independency is the greatest effort any government position can build and maintain.

Not about what someone can do for you, but what can I do to ensure that you can do it for yourself?

[quote comment=”69643″]in reality, all of those racist politicians became Republicans 40 years ago.[/quote] This is the greatest injustice and most injurous myths that has lasted for so long that needs to be shut down. I’ve heard this come from so many people who argue the same. That the two parties, Democrats and Republicans, switched sides. It’s like you entirely disavow all origins of slavery, racism, segregation, and creation of the KKK, although being invented by the Democrats, suddenly and magically switched to the Republicans and so they own that history. It’s a three-card monty, isn’t it? ou really believe they all left the Democrat party and became Republicans – who were in fact the liberators. The most senior congressman of the Democrats is a man named Senator Robert Byrd. A Democrat and past KKK member at the height of segregation and resistance against Reconstruction by the Republicans. Why is it still relevant today? Because 90% of the African American vote goes to the party that is responsible for the crimes against their ancestory – yet they are constantly being lied to that it was the party who liberated them who commited crimes against them. Ask 90% of that vote today which party was responsible for slavery and segregation. “Tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth.” – Joseph Goebbels All that said, the Republicans have totally missed the boat in not only allowing this injustice to continue, but haven’t promoted policies loud enough to let people of all… Read more »
