White People Mourning Romney

55 posts in this topic

Here's a website dedicated to documenting the misguided tears of those who placed the hope of their future in a single man because they are convinced OBOMBER is an evil evil socialist hitler bent on turning the USA into the banana republic.

The scariest thing to me, besides seeing the ability of people to be herded by ideologues and lack of critical thinking skills into radical fatalist positions that benefit a political party, is the number of kids being brainwashed. none of the teary-faced kids in here are teary-faced because their cognitive analysis has formed their opinions; they are teary-faced because they've been heavily socialized to believe that OBOMBER is evil we are probably in the middle of the end days as described in the bible. their thoughts and actions will likely reflect this for the rest of their lives.

(of course that blind socialization applies to either side of the political aisle, but regardless this is a pretty poignant snapshot of the power of ideologues, association, and social processes. it should make you think.)

here's a scary example of how politicians can fuel massive social movement and mold belief systems based on the sincere religious convictions of massive amounts of people regardless of whether or not those values are reflected in the politician's party

I think the evangelicals did not show up for Romney. Romney gets 3 million less votes than McCain.

none of those kids have a damn clue, they're just doing what their parents are telling them to do, and they'll grow up die-hard righters because of it. they will filter data and information based on their socialized belief system rather than letting an objective analysis of the data build their paradigms.

you see it in all belief systems, democrat or republican or mormon or muslim or hindu or anything else that defines a belief system. it's fuging scary.

To be fair, I have seen people on the losing end of every election crying like fools.

Part of getting folks pumped up is the inevitable crash. One winner and one loser each time.

my evidence is only anecdotal and therefore not necessarily an accurate reflection of demographic reality, but i've seen more southern evangelicals convinced that obama is allied with satan and MUST BE VOTED OUT AT ALL COSTS than in any other election in the past (granted we really only have three with current social media to get an accurate picture, and this is how much information is disseminated currently.)

the evangelical hype was unprecedented this year in my experience, and i'm willing to bet the polls reflect it, which does nothing but bolster the idea that they're sinking the republican party with 19th century paradigms that do not accurately reflect the shifting demographics and constituency of today's america.

True. But white people are still sooo stupid.

Like Bill O'Reilly said on Tuesday. "White America is now the minority. We are now a nation of people who want things." Meaning that there are two types of people in America, white people and the people who mooch off of white people.

That is what stupid people say,

Like Stephen Colbert said on his show on Wednesday in response to those comments, "Yeah! White people don't want things.... white people have things, and we know what to so with our things. We put it with our stuff"

Come on teeray... I thought u were kinda joking at first... We're not all stupid.

I have been surprised ever since Romney won the nomination about the evangelicals, as up until then, Mormonism was viewed as this backwards cult, then bam, its all good.

To quote him exactly

[b]"Whereby 20 years ago, President Obama would have been roundly defeated by an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney, the white establishment is now the minority....”[/b]

[b]"It's a changing country. ... It's not a traditional America anymore. And there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff. They want things. And who is going to give them things? President Obama. He knows it. And he ran on it."[/b]

I was joking. But the over reaction by a small portion of white conservatives was over the top

Again, to be fair, do you think the black community would have had no reaction at all to an Obama loss?

I think this borders on gloating rather than finding people upset with a loss. Of course, if Obama had lost, there would have been pics from the other side with wailing, crying, anger and stupid statements.

Once again, an ignorant electorate is easy to manipulate.

The difference between white people and black people is that white people are so used to getting our way that when we don't get our way we have complete meltdowns and say stupid poo like "Our country died tonight"

Whereas black people are so used to getting fugged over they just would have said "I knew that poo was going to happen anyway"

White people are like spoiled children whose parents got them the wrong model I-Phone for Christmas and then cusses their parents out and runs to their room crying.

Black people are more like NC State sports fans who always seem to believe they are really close to being where they want to be,so close to being equal to UNC or Duke, but always know in the back of their minds that somehow they are going to be disappointed again because it always happens.

Agreed, there was an abundance of weeping and teeth gnashing as well as gloating on my Facebook feed all week.
