“Yet even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes. Well, I say to them tonight, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America – there’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too… We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.” – Barack Obama, Keynote Address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention.
It was a bittersweet night.
The high profile candidates of the 2010 election went down to defeat: Joe Miller, Tom Tancredo, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell. I could feel the wind going out of my sails as soon as the Connecticut, West Virginia, and Delaware races were called.
Yet these races were at the margins. Most of these candidates had personality issues weighing them down. Manchin ran to the right of his opponent. The Colorado Governor race was always in chaos.
Make no mistake about it: last night was an overwhelming victory for White America. The chickens came home to roost for the Democratic Party. The bill came due for years of anti-White, so-called “progressive” posturing and pandering to non-White identity groups. The exits polls show “massive, unprecedented White flight” from Democrats.
That is the story of this election cycle. As I predicted, the vast continental interior of North America burned in a sea of Red as White voters revolted against the Obama administration and massacred Democrats in the South, Midwest, and Interior West.
The South is an absolute disaster zone for the Democratic Party. Gene Taylor in Mississippi, Bobby Bright in Alabama, Chet Edwards in Texas, Rick Boucher in Virginia, John Spratt in South Carolina, Ike Skelton in Missouri are all gone. Most are longtime incumbents. Look at the state legislatures in Alabama, Texas, and Tennessee. In Dixie, this was a realignment election greater than 1994.
In the Midwest, the carnage in Iowa, Wisconsin, and Ohio, extending into Pennsylvania, is breathtaking to behold. The Midwestern Meltdown materialized in spectacular fashion. There was also a blowout in the Dakotas with both congressional districts flipping Democrat to Republican. Even James Oberstar in Minnesota was swallowed by the Red tide.
Democratic partisans are already saying that no one saw it coming.
I saw it coming clearly and blogged about it for months. It was obvious that White America was stirring from its slumber a year ago. It had become so obvious in the last three months before the election that I dropped everything I was doing to analyze and track the growing rebellion.
Highlight of the Evening
The exclamation point on the night was John Boehner’s “victory speech” or lack thereof. This election cycle was about White identity politics from beginning to end. If this wasn’t pure political theater (and what I have read suggests it wasn’t), it was masterful performance at capturing the mood of the White electorate:
Boehner’s stoic facade cracks. He gets emotional as he talks about how he worked himself up from poverty by working dead end jobs. He talked about how he tried to build a “small business” with tears in his eyes. He shows genuine grief about how America was slipping away.
Whether it was real or not is besides the point: Boehner succeeded in representing the sentiment of millions of beleagured, distressed White male voters in the Heartland. It was a stark contrast to Professor Obama who is jetting over to Asia this week to visit a mosque in Indonesia. It was also a stark contrast to the elation on display at Reid headquarters.
The Republicans are on probation with White voters. Everything that was won in the House last tonight can be easily lost again in 2012. Without a comfortable majority in the House or a majority in the Senate, the Republican Congress is unlikely to stir up a hornet’s nest on immigration, much less hand Barack Obama a desperately sought victory that would alienate their own supporters.
Over the next week, I will dig into the election returns and pore over White voting patterns. I haven’t even begun to look at this gold mine of information or the post-election quarterbacking. So without further ado, I will now get started.
P.S. Robert Lindsay, the communist cheerleader for White race replacement in California, has abandoned any pretense that he is a White Advocate. The latest example of polarization working its magic.
