Angry White Man

I found this article in the Aspen Times and found it interesting.

Quote:
In election 2008, don’t forget Angry White Man



Gary Hubbell
February 9, 2008


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.



Thoughts??

What is the significant portion of a white male's identity that exemplifies a distinct 'white male identity'?

In many states and cities white men are now the minority. Civil service exams still reward "minorities" extra points because no politician has the balls to rewrite the standards for today's population for fear of minority voters not voting for them.

I know this will probably never happen but I think we should view everyone as INDIVIDUALS instead of placing them with groups. I know some black people and hispanics that are harder workers and better than white people. I judge people based on their actions and decisions, not something they have no control over.

I think we will take this as a joke, I see many a battle to ensue, and I'm glad 4 million white dudes from the National Rifle Association can get together and write a self-promoting essay about white guys.

I liked the part about the wife being more emotional than rational.

Good article, with great facts.

Some helpful tips to becoming an "Angry White Man":
  • Maintain prejudices against people of a certain minority who you know nothing about.
  • Believe that there are people who just "need killing."
  • Can't be gay, so you can definitely do construction, work on an automobile, play golf, hunt, and coache three sports at once. Oh, you also have to be able to mine coal yourself (we're working on changing that one).
  • Is a southern gentleman.
  • Must be a Republican and consider your wife to be "emotional."
  • Must be intolerant with slight to vulgar racist tendencies.
  • Must be really angry that people of other cultures work with you and must stereotypically believe that none of them pay taxes, work as hard as you do, etc.
  • Finally, you've really got to hate 'ol Hillary.

Take your first step towards becoming an Angry White Man today - join the NRA.

Its obvious you don't know what the definition of racism is....you also skipped over the part that said it doesn't matter if the man is Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, or Green Party.

Other than that, he was giving examples of a lot of typical white American (mostly blue collar) males.

And yes, some people just need killing.

On a side note, the reading comprehension of ST/P has greatly declined in the past few months.

The Angry White Man is clearly the quintessential American. We should all strive to be more like him with every day that passes.

Prejudice because of race, unless you really want to get technical (however when you do that, you end up losing alot of things labeled racist). Stereotyping jerk sound good?

Did I miss that clarification? Damn, I wonder how I could've completely missed that?

I'd have to agree (unless, of course that was directed at me, at which point I'd wag my finger at you and go "oh AP!")

Actually racism is believing ones races is genetically superior to another race. What you described is bigotry...if you really want to get technical .

See if you dig deeper in the definition you basically assume a whole different definition for racism (than what's in common usage). No worries though.

It is mostly true.

Most everyone here will disagree because they still live with their parents and haven't started their own life, in college, or haven't started a family yet. They're not stupid, they just haven't been hit with certain things yet. I thought totally different until I started getting raped by property/school taxes with no kids, while some whore who can't keep her legs shut, has 5 kids, and lives in an apartment doesn't pay a dime for school tax. I also know quite a few people who had their lives flipped upside down when they got laid off because their company went to China. I'm not saying **** anything not American or **** poor people, but what I am saying is what's mentioned in the article represents a huge chunk of America.
