    THOUGHTS FROM AN INDEPENDENT

    Decades ago, my father, a WW2 Vet worked as a pipefitter out of a labor union. Like most of his fellow pipefitters at the time, he was a pro labor, pro union Democrat.

    White working class males were the backbone of the Democratic party for many years, but recently things have changed. In their headlong pursuit of diversity, the Democratic party have showcased women and minorities to the point of white males having been marginalized and even scorned by the Democrats as racist, sexist bigots, and often treated as 2nd class citizens. Not surprisingly, this has caused many working class white men to drift to the GOP where they feel more accepted. This stupid move by the left wing has been the reason democrats have lost elections.

    Democrats - get it through your head. White males vote in large numbers, and if you don't start making them feel more valued in your "big tent" that tent won't be big enough, and you'll just keep losing.

    My unofficial poll of old union guys is that they are generally Trump supporters.
    They prefer the new populist GOP to the new socialist DNC.

    The problem here is that the party is now largely under the control of the illiberal leftist authoritarians who are 100% committed to political correctness and identity politics.

    So white men (and particularly straight white men) are welcome to come along for the ride, their votes are appreciated for sure, but at this point they are simply second class citizens who'd damn well better know their place and watch what they say.

    That's just the reality at this point.

    I'm starting to get the impression that "White Males" are to root of all the world's woes... I feel like I'm haven't been doing my part...

    As a white male it's hard to fathom where this so called war on white males is happening. White males might vote a certain way but there is no such war on us. If you can't keep your hands off of females at work because of some abnormal urge then that's your problem.

    White male here. White men have been in charge of the country since its founding. The idea that trying to level the playing field so that non-white makes can have a seat at the table is not “threatening”.

    The op made some points. YOu might want to address them if you are going to post in the thread.


    Otherwise, it looks like you are just trying to bury the points, in flat denials, because you support the negative behavior, but cannot defend it.


    Which makes you a bad person.

    Except that no one is complaining about a level playing field. THe complaints were vague, but clearly not that.


    So, you want to address what was actually said, instead of the strawman you made up?

    The Democrats attack everyone who made America the envy of the world. That would be predominantly White males, successful people and Christians. Conversely they support opening the borders to any undocumented person that shows up. And they bash the brave Americans in the Police Force and the Military who literally risk their lives every day.
