New U.S. House: Women and Minorities to the Left; White Men to the Right

Halimah Abdullah, CNN, November 14, 2012

When the incoming U.S. House freshmen of the 113th Congress take their class photo, the image will reflect two very different visions of the nation.

On the Democratic side: Women and minorities—a coalition that, along with young voters, largely helped re-elect President Barack Obama—collectively will for the first time in the nation’s history outnumber white male Democrats.

On the Republican side: The majority of the House seats will be held by white men—a group which far outnumbers the now dwindled numbers of House GOP women and minorities after the losses of two minority members and about a half dozen women from that caucus.

“They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well the picture that you see before you is worth millions of votes, millions of aspirations and dreams of the American people for problem-solvers to come to Washington to get to the job done, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in welcoming the incoming freshman class to the Capitol for orientation.

“Today we officially welcome our Democratic freshmen to Washington. They are extraordinary leaders who will make our House Democratic caucus the first caucus in history, in the history of civilized government, to have a majority of women and minorities in the caucus.”

It also symbolizes something else that is more troubling politically.

“It’s basically a sign that both parties are distilling to their core, and they are living in parallel universes,” said David Wasserman, House editor for the Cook Political Report.


Democrats picked up three seats in the election so far and lead in five others yet to be resolved. A sixth race will be decided in a runoff between two Republicans.


Losses among moderate, white, male “blue dog” Democrats and Republican women and minorities further helped change the face of Congress, Wasserman said. House Republicans lost one African-American, one Latino and a net of six women, he said.

House Republicans lost one of their few African-American members when Florida Rep. Allen West appeared to have been defeated by Democratic businessman Patrick Murphy, although West refuses to concede and demands a recount. {snip}


“We’re a country that has always presumed male leadership, has always been most comfortable with white male leadership and we’re watching the transition of that notion,” said Mark Anthony Neal, a cultural and Black studies professor at Duke University.

    Wow, this is stunning. I had no idea the culture, the traditions of this country were changing as rapidly as they obviously are. All that was once good is now bad. White males are rapidly becoming a hated minority. We are truly living in upside-down times. It’s astonishing and scary how quickly things are changing before our eyes.

    • The__Bobster

      It’s time for all of us to go Galt and see how well the fringe elements do without us.

      • Dan Reardon

        This country would quickly fall flat on it’s face if the White male refused to produce.

        • Steel_Quake77

          There seems to be alot of talk of ‘Going Galt’ by White Men on the internet. This is a concept from Ayn Rands novel ‘Atlas Shrugged’.

          Just google ‘Going Galt’ and confine the search result and one will find a massive spike in this term since Obama was re-elected on Nov. 6th. (A.k.a. The Catastrophe)

      • dhs

        They already anticipated that strategy; that’s why they are importing high IQ Indians and Asians.

    • Liberalsuck

      We’ve been a hated majority for a long time, too. Maybe this will wake up those stupid white democrats. Then again, considering they voted for Obama twice, maybe it won’t. In which case, serves them right.

      • pcmustgo

        Well, I heard more and more whites are fleeing the democratic party and becoming republicans anyhow…. that was documented in 2010.

        • Liberalsuck

          That’s true, but the RP is going to continue to lie and screw their white voting base and continue to sound more liberal to get more votes.

    • pcmustgo

      The upside down thing especially. The lies are the truth. The truth is the lies. Telling the truth is a hate crime because it doesn’t fit into fluff world. Up is down, down is up. Black is white and white is black. The opposite of reality is bombarded to us via TV.

    • Tucker

      I believe we can assign a significant portion of the blame for this incredibly vitriolic amount of minority ‘hate’ for White males to the 50 plus year long malicious and deliberate effort by the owners of the mainstream media to bombard the viewing audiences with endless demonizations and never-ending portrayals of White males as ‘evil’ and responsible for all the woes of minorities.

      Michael A. Hoffman wrote a small book titled ‘Hate Whitey – The Cinema of Defamation’ back in 2000 that can be obtained from The Independent History and Research Co., PO Box 849, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho 83816 and I highly recommend that Whites get a copy of this book. Hoffman chronicles a huge list of TV programs and motion picture films that have been produced by Hollywood and cites example after example of how the owners of Hollywood have inserted virulently anti-White themes and messages into the story lines of their scripts. This was being done deliberately, folks. These media owners knew exactly what they were doing and they were clearly brainwashing millions of minorities to hate Whites and millions of Whites to hate themselves – and to become future Obama voters.

      Minorities, with their average lower IQs, sit in front of their televisions and watch repetitive and endless anti-White themes, hour after hour, year after year, and these themes have been responsible for planting some very dangerous seeds of hot hatred inside them and that hatred is for White European people. Primarily White men, but also White women to a degree that might not suppress minority male lust to breed with White females and use them for sexual toys and for gene hijacking purposes – but we can see from the alarming number of race mixing White females who wind up being killed by their non-white male lovers, that once the lust wears off – the hatred tends to come out and then the world has one fewer race mixing White female walking around.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        You cannot leave the government brainwashing institutions — otherwise known as K-12 schools — out of the equation.

        From the failed Headstart program on up through college, year after year, ALL American students are steeped in a 100% anti-White curriculum — one that glorifies and puffs up blacks and browns far beyond their meager accomplishments, showers only them with money and opportunities and presents Whites in the most evil, vile ways possible.

        IMO, the schools and the media combined have delivered a devastating one-two punch to American children.

        How else would it be possible to justify the genocide of the White race — and convince Whites that it is in their best interest to accept genocide??

        I believe it takes a minimum of 10 good hard years of reality, of being knocked up the side of the head repeatedly — locked out of the job market, passed over, mired in student debt, unable to support oneself, let alone a family, satanic taxation, assaults and attacks by blacks and browns, the realization that we are NOT all equal — before the media and academic brainwashing wear off.

        What has been done and what is still being done to us, to our White Children, by the media, schools, government, Frankfurt School, Boas, Freud is beyond unspeakable evil. We face a cold blooded, ruthless enemy who desires nothing less than to wipe us off the face of the earth. How evil is that?

        Woud that every White realized this.


        • Steel_Quake77

          What ever happened to youngsters being all rebellious and stuff?

          Why aren’t there more White Students out there like Matt Heimbach who are taking the Lefts message to its logical conclusion and ‘fighting the Power’ (that is the power of the left in these institutions)

          Back in the 1980s when I was a student I was immediately repulsed by Teachers who made negative comments about President Reagan… I thought we were supposed to show a modicum of respect for our elected leaders… Also David Dukes electoral runs made an impression. ‘If Blacks can have leaders like Jesse Jackson…. Why can’t us Whites have a leader like David Duke?. Why aren’t more students today having similar experiences that lead them to rejecting the Left and towards at least racial sanity or even White Nationalism??!?!?!

          • RisingReich

            Because they are dumb as a box of rocks. Actually, comparing them to a box of rocks insults the box of rocks.

          • Capt Quelch

            I think the answer lies in what others have described here; the relentless brainwashing by the national media, the public school system and academia. I was in HS in the ’70’s and college in the early ’80’s, however my television viewing growing up were programs such as Andy Griffith, Hogan’s Heroes etc. Our music was Lynrd Skynrd, Allman Bros, Merle Haggard etc. Whereas, the youth of today are bombarded by anti-white, pro-black/brown TV shows and music. Also of note is the “sissification” of males by the public schools – now you are no longer allowed to use your fists to settle problems…no touching others, instead tattletale on them. This leads to weak, men of non-action.

        • This hated white man is well aware of all the above ways HE and other white males are under constant assault. I do not know who to be more angry at, the hostile racial and religious aliens behind this, OR the white women who go along with this. Every white female I see arm and arm with a non-white male is a reminder to me that white women are far too often our sworn enemies. I’d sooner volunteer to be locked up in a church with a Russian witch to exorcise her than be around white women like that. They are as far as I am concerned, vedmas, or witches who among Slavs are Satan’s generals.

      • When the movie Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner came out I got into a fight because I knew what the purpose of the film was. I was right then and I’m right now and I don’t like it.

    • Be of good cheer: It’s becoming increasingly impossible to hide what a sick culture we’ve become. Blowback always comes, and it comes faster to a society whose members now see how twisted it is.

    • Allwyn Mayer

      Nobody hates white males. However, people agree universally that america will be better served by capable leaders who reflect the diversity in this country. Over 12% of this country is black and over 16% of Americans are Latino. However there are 0 black and 2 hispanic senators in the US Senate today. How is it fair to the 28% of black and hispanic voters that they are being represented predominantly by whites who cannot possibly understand what it means to be black or hispanic in the US ?

      • Liberalsuck

        I think you’re on the wrong site, honey. This is a prowhite site; not a “whites are evil, bleed your heart out for blacks and Hispanics” site. Besides, whites have a right to have a country where they are the majority, remain the majority and have the laws and policies benefit them. There are tons of countries where blacks and latinos are the majority, so they can just go there and run things the way they want to and leave us the hell alone once and for all.

  • MekongDelta69

    I saw that Pelosi ‘news conference’ on TV. The stage had NO males behind her. Not one. Not even a black or brown one.
    Leftist that she is – she’s not being very ‘incluuuuuuuusive.’

    But she does have a ‘charming’ Botox smile though! 😉

    • The__Bobster

      It sounds like the literature I receive from my old college. Okay, there are some pictures of males, but they are foreign males.

      • Epiminondas

        Yea…mine, too. I wrote my board of regents and requested they take my name off the list of alumni.

        • gibs_me_dat

          You should sing back up and keep informed of the horror. Use it to teach others about how right we are. Never cut yourself off from the information flow coming from enemy precints.

          • Epiminondas

            Sorry. I don’t have the stomach for the stuff I was seeing.

      • gibs_me_dat

        Same with White flight private schools. All the pictures in their magazines now have Diversity enrichment (black privilege all on scholarships up en heeah). Absolutely disgusting. May they suffer the voodoo as good as the voodoo can give it to them…

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Charming botox smile?

      You don’t say:

  • Or, white males are a minority.

  • gibs_me_dat

    Can you imagine the horrors of 2016?

    The Mayan End of Earth calendar was a lie. They just wanted us to think that the end was 2012, so that when we make it into 2013, we’ll think we have another 1000 years of progress.

    2016 will be the year that will prove that 9/11 was more powerful than anyone could possibly admit… We never did bounce back from it, and we never will. Permanent decline: planned, managed, accelerated. Obama is their Sharia Avatar.

    • razorrare

      There you go again…trashing this website with another black face…hard on the eyes and makes your message much more difficult to understand or appreciate…if i had an ignore button i would use it simply based on your choice of avatars.

  • AutomaticSlim

    What is truly disgusting and disturbing is how this election has highlighted the fact that young White females have abandoned their own kind. I have to believe that Romney probably reminds a lot of these Obama voters of their own father, but they would rather vote for a lying black coke-head. These very naive girls need to start reading the crime statistics and realize that Obama will ALWAYS side with violent black thugs over their victims. After all, Trayvon looked just like…

    Like they said back in WW2, learn to recognize the enemy.

  • pcmustgo

    I once knew this russian immigrant girl who dated a muslim cheerfully tell me how great it was that in certain departments in her office, “White men are already a minority!”

    • eunometic

      We must be carefull to note develop a negative outlook on White women. If we apply a strict definition of White as Full European White women are still with us politically.

      The strategy is to coopt White women, to split us. Don’t go along with it.

      There are White women in jail now for speaking up for our race. One is under threat, in Britain, of having her child taken from her for having complained that her country has been taken over by immigrants.

      Feminism is not about empowering women, it is about empowering leftist women. It’s hard for a woman to say that she believes in equal rights without using the word feminist and the whole homo-gender-Marxist baggage that comes with it.

      Whatever you think of “TeutonicWarriorChick” she has more courage to speak for our race than most men.

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        White women rejected Obama 56 to 42 in the 2012 election — despite the relentless new media propaganda that Romney was anti-woman, etc.

      • David Ashton

        Well said. An important distinction in Britain as in the US.

      • Canis Lupus

        “Whatever you think of “TeutonicWarriorChick” she has more courage to speak for our race than most men.”

        This is because she is a woman. Women can get away with speaking thier minds more than men. It has nothing to do with courage. Different rules apply to women. This also sounds like a backhanded way to insult men. Which leads me to believe that you are a woman.

        • eunometic

          To say “this has nothing to do with courage” is absurd. It’s true to say women can “sometimes” get away with being “politically incorrect” but its not so much that she won’t risk shunning or jail especially in the UK.

          I’ve been through a number of threads in White Nationalist sites and its clear that some men feel free to make insulting generalisations about women. Moreover they really are being tools by reacting toxically to a few leftist feminists (often lesbian or ‘minority’) or miscegenating idiots and then applying their anger to ALL White women. That’s what the gender Marxists want. It really is idiotic.

          Without women we are lost, the anti Whites know that and have been attacking us that way for a long time. Successfully I might add.

          White Nationalism allows men to be themselves. Being an honourable masculine ballsy man doesn’t mean being irrationally negative about females.

          No I am not female. I am a heterosexual White male.

          • Canis Lupus

            “It’s true to say women can “sometimes” get away with being “politically incorrect” but its not so much that she won’t risk shunning or jail especially in the UK.”
            White men can not get away with being politically correct at any time.
            Having this belief does not make me a member of stormfront, irrational, or a tool. I do agree that white women are important. But at this time, many of them treat white men as the enemy.
            I am honorable and masculine. I am nothing like the men that you see in television commercials that are made be women.

          • Liberalsuck

            Look at what happened to that young blonde woman Alexandra Wallace for her Asians in the Library video that went viral on youtube. She lost modeling gigs and got tons of death threats. You should go onto Facebook on her page and see all the nasty anti-white comments she is getting. Poor girl.

        • Libearlsuck

          Jared talks about race all the time. So do the political cesspool guys. So does Harold Covington of the Northwest Front. So is Craig Bodeker, the guy who did A Conversation About Race. There are strong white men out there willing to put themselves out there.

      She will regret her words when she gets a full-on assault of Sharia.

      • Liberalsuck

        I’ve not that many white females that were so hateful of white males they would say that. I’ve met a few in my life, yes, but they possessed one or all of the following traits: they generally have psychological issues, were getting back at their parents, were molested by their fathers, liberal, didn’t have a good white man figure around growing up, most white men wouldn’t want anything to do with them, etc.

        I’ve never met an attractive (normal) white woman that was liberal or anti-white male. Most white women I’ve met date white men, have children with white men, etc. These white men who are getting maligned and attacked are their brothers, their father, their uncles, their grandfathers, their cousins, their boyfriends, their husbands, good guy friends, etc.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      So, she’s having to settle for a sand n—–? Here’s a scoop for you; Any Russian woman worth a damn (and that is most of them, BTW) and GIVEN a CHOICE would not defile herself with either a camel jockey or a Bantu. I am not speaking of course about the many beautiful girls of the former Soviet Union who have been sold into sex slavery by the disciples of the “religion of peace.” These girls are victims. And the Russian girls stupid enough to buy what they see on MTV about those vibrant blacks are not what I would call worth a damn.

    • Liberalsuck

      She is not ALL white women. There are plenty of white women I know who either don’t have an affinity for black/mexican males, who hate liberalism, who think women should pay for their own contraceptives, who hate the Democratic Party, who are gun enthusiasts, etc. I’ve met just as many white men that are self hating, afraid of being called racists, want others to take care of them, etc. In fact, I’ve met more white females who aren’t shy about being openly unPC than I have white males in my life. I’m a white male too, but am just saying both white men and white women are equally at fault for where our race is and we are equally responsible for turning things around for us. Please don’t fall into this white woman vs. white man debate. It turns off white women to our cause.

  • Xerxes22

    The Left, which has always hated us, likes to pretend that there is some sort of alliance between non-Whites and White women. No non-White believes in any such alliance and the only White women who do are those man hating feminists. Some of these women are just naive liberals with no experience of the real world,some just hate men (daddy or boy friend issues) and the rest belong to a Tribe that has long wanted and sought our annihilation.

    Yep, I’ve seen the transition from white male leadership in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Haiti, Detroit, Newark, Birmingham, and so on. It doesn’t look pretty.

    …and the report was brought to us by Halimah Abdullah of CNN.
    Of course, the Republicans will be quick to make concessions to the leftists, as they have done for decades now. Who needs Democratic enemies when we have Republican friends like Mitt “Romneycare” Romney, Juan “Amnesty” McShame, Ronald “Amnesty” Reagan, Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Christi, George “NAFTA” Bush, George “Immigration Reform” Bush, John “Obamacare” Roberts, and so forth and so on.
    The fact of the matter is that the United States is moving inexorably toward the extinction of the Republican Party and a solidification of the Democrats as the lone ruling Communist Party, where the leaders enjoy the perks of Communist Party membership and the minions below keep them in power in exchange for robbing and redistributing the earned wealth of a shrinking pool of Whites.

  • KenelmDigby

    One part of me is glad that budding White, male Democratic Party politicians will likely see their ambitions thwarted and their careers derailed, purely and simply because they are White and male and hence, by their own yardstick, it’s ‘good and virtuous’ to explicitly and unabashedly racially and sexually discriminate against them.
    – Just think, if this policy had been enacted decades ago the World would have been spared the horror of Jack and Teddy Kennedy.

    • Steel_Quake77

    What we are really seeing is the final, total and unconditional truimph of all that so-called ‘civil rights’ bullpoopy that was instigated by the Kennedys, way back in the ’60s, driven by Johnson and affirmed by Nixon.
    They won, and they won totally, it was a long game, there was no quick easly defined victory, but a 40 year crawl of persistant gradualism.
    Many sage people at the time predicted that the present would come to pass. but the verdict of history must surely be that White conservatives, the traditionalists, were at that time not strong, ruthless, determined and organized enough to effectively fight bak at the subversive menace of the whole ERA, ‘civil rights’ , Kennedy-Johnson, Luther King, etc bandwagon of bullpoopy.
