Obama’s Campaign Strategy: Isolate and Attack “Privileged” Straight White Males

It’s time to take the white man down.
We’re getting a better picture of the left’s campaign strategy this year. We all know that Team Obama can’t run on his disastrous record and failed policies. Instead the former community organizer will use Alinsky tactics, something he taught to college students, to isolate and attack “privileged” straight white males.

Far left journalist Jose Antonio Vargas revealed the game plan in a speech at The Aspen Institute.

The Daily Caller reported:

In a wide-ranging symposium Monday called “The State of Race in America,” award-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas said that “in some ways, the soul of the heterosexual white man is a stake” in the 2012 election.

His comments were part of a larger monologue on political and social power moving to minority groups, which he said will hurt former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign.

“For everybody in this country in which America’s always been a fight,” he said, “They’re looking at him [Mitt Romney], in which everything’s been given, and we’re going, ‘OK, do you see yourself? Do you fully and comprehensively see yourself and how you fit in this?’”

The panel, hosted by the Aspen Institute, mainly addressed questions of American identity and immigration issues. It included MSNBC contributor and author Touré and Fox News political analyst Juan Williams.

You would expect no less from the Obama Campaign.

    Marx was a privileged white male, particularly given his education and access to social discourse and influence. Lenin was also a privileged white male. So is Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky.

    Barry, is this a move to “kill the father” and slay your gods? Are you willing to disown Marxism?

  • forest

    So they are finally going full racist?

  • NeoKong

    What a whiny little b!tch.
    If he is going to be the face of the Obama campaign strategy then I’m all for it.
    He was all over the place and seemed to have trouble formulating any sort of intelligent thought.

    He’s has it wrong also.
    It seems Obama wants the campaign to be about who works and who rides for free. Trying to convince America that capitalism is their enemy will be a colosal loser.
    It’s like campaigning against baseball or apple pie.

    For Obama to pull that off he will have to completely do a 180 on everything he ran on last time.

  • Joanne

    I’m sure many more people see themselves in white Romney than half white/part black, part Arab Obama. People see in Romney what they too can achieve in the U.S., whereas in Obama they see a racist, Marxist, socialist, muslim lying narcissist who is taking America into the pits of economic hell.

  • Sam Stone

    Jose Antonio Vargas is a self admitted ILLEGAL ALIEN so why is he still here much less speaking in public?

    I can’t believe Jim Hoft left that out of the story.

  • BunnyOlesen

    Everything’s been given to him? You mean like, his father worked really had so he COULD give something to his son and/or children? The exact same way that ANY person of ANY race would do for their own kids, HAD the actually made something of themselves.

    That JOSE is just another stupid white hating ‘chicano’ with a low IQ who ALSO wants everything given to him for nothing; everything that was built up and created by whites, to just be handed over for he & his ilk to destroy and run into the ground.

    Mexicans, just like mexico are incapable of holding anything together politically or structurally – they are too corrupt and too stupid. YEAH I SAID IT! LOOK AT MEXICO MAN! IT’S WORSE THAN AFGHANISTAN !

    The come to america and are helping to bankrupt US. They don’t want ‘a better life’ and they are sure not willing to work for it, they want welfare, they want school, they want to run around and protest that they deserve to be here simply based on the fact that they are already HERE. We are covered up with MS13, it is unsafe to visit national parks, reserves & forests out west – because of smuggling operations and they will kill you if you see them; we all know how ‘kidnappy’ mexicans are, yes, it’s one of their largest business models – I don’t know what the #1 kidnap city of Mexico is, but the #2 kidnap city (i mean thats where they kidnap the most people for ransom) IS PHOENIX ARIZONA !! Yeah they come up here, kidnap people and take them right back to mexico. BUT OUR BORDERS ARE SECURE, RIGHT?

    OH yeah, and also?? PEOPLE ARE JUST NOW FIGURING OUT OBAMA’S RACIST AGENDA? I’m a ‘nobody’ average citizen/person and I understood that IMMEDIATELY. DID ANYBODY READ HIS STUPID BOOK, the reveals what a whiny little ‘my daaaaaaddddyyyy’ twat he is? OH YEAH when he went to africa after his dad died & FELL TO THE GROUND WEEPING and squeezing some red dirt between his fingers he REALIZED that THIS IS WHERE IM FROM, this is my people etc. (not whitey america) AND that Obama’s GREATEST DREAM is to finish accomplishing what his father started.
    In case you wonder – his father had a degree in political science I GUESS and had written in his dissertation that “technically 100% taxation is acceptable as long as you give the people an equal amount of goods & services in return” ALSO that Europe & America need to ‘gibs us some money’ because colonialist countries need to keep on paying for what they did and support AFRICA until they SUCCEED at something (never). Even though not all african countries were ‘colonized’ and not all european countries were involved with ‘colonization’ (like Sweden where I live, they never did that) BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, the fine print of that belief is this

    Obama HATES white people, he is a liar, a devious manipulative shrewd CON MAN; that’s really all he is – flash & mirrors – NOTHING he tells about himself is true or real in any way shape or form; he’ll throw ANYbody under the bus if it suits his purposes – no loyalty – he’ll tell crowd A he’s gonna WORK FOR ‘A’ and then tell crowd B he’s gonna WORK FOR ‘B’ but then when he’s elected, he works for C and doesn’t even make a comment on his broken lie of a promise
    (like the evil Patriot Act he was going to dissolve, that he’s signed back in like what, 3 times? 2 times? and without nary a comment I might add)

    He is just a sick son of a bitch, unethical with NO PLACE ‘leading’ the american people because he does the EXACT opposite of what the american people WANT – he doesn’t care what we want, only what HE wants, because we are all stupid and he fancies himself A GENIUS. Not too genius though, I recognized his con man ‘charm’ immediately I was just creeped out by him.

  • BurmaShave

    I keep on having to remind myself that it was the Muslims, and the transgender lesbians, etc. that conquered the Wild West and fought the Axis Powers to save our nation from the Nips and Nazis. At least that is what I expect our history books will say in a few years.

    Funny how everyone flocks to America and Europe to partake of the societal and scientific advancements that are largely the white man’s doing. Give control to others and the outcome will not be so beneficial to so many. Be careful what you wish for – Obama’s four years is but an extremely small sample.

    “Everything has been given”? What a stereotyping moron. It sounds like he is jealous to me. It sounds like he hates white people to. Shame for him, the bigot. Maybe he ought to get his illegal arse back to where people are perfect. Opps! Mexico is incomparable when it comes to the U.S.A. Which is why he is in the U.S.A. illegally right?
    He went on about interpreting this and that, and then he said what is the black man hiding? That was HIS view; not anyone else’s! What a tool trying to tell everyone what white people are thinking. By the way, we can look after our own souls tyvm! I for one, certainly don’t need some racist, bigoted, know-it-all law breaker to tell me my soul is fine!

  • Chris in N.Va.

    Let’s see now if I have this straight so I can make a proper empathic comparison:

    Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac, sent to private schools, privileged colleges/universities to attend, cushy “jobs” (of which one can waste inordinate amounts of money with no measurable results and still have everyone view it as a success), millions of buckaroos for two barely middle-aged quasi-autobiographic paeans to personal greatness (yet “transparently” seal any and all records that might possible confirm — or perhaps refute? — testimony to said “greatness”).

    First Wookie — similar privileged curriculum vitae, cushy high-paying, largely-no-show job with rapidly inflating salary (which no longer exists once her address changed to the White House, attesting to how absolutely critical such a “job” must have been).

    Children sent to finest, most expensive private schools available.

    OF COURSE(!) I can more readily relate to such humble, modest life stories and circumstances than I can to that wretched cur Romney.

    Why, the comparison couldn’t be plainer…

    …or more miserably, pitifully plaintive.

    Yo! Barry dude! Ya want some free gummint cheese to go with that whine, ya race-baiting, class-warfare malignant Narcissist-in-Chief?

    Gimme a break!!

  • valerie

    Where to begin? The speaker is incoherent. He seems to think that somebody, or some group in this country has it easy because they are white, male, heterosexuals. It’s just not true. And if it were true, I would not be interested in tearing down what white, male, heterosexuals have, but in giving everybody “else” the opportunity to make the most of their own lives.

    The thing that white, male, heterosexuals know is that they have to work. If they can’t convince someone else to pay them to work for them, then they have to make a job for themselves. That’s what they do, and they are very productive.

    The other thing they know, and that others don’t want to believe, is that white, male, heterosexuals encounter the same [email protected] as everybody else. They endure traffic, and insults, and high gas prices. They stand in line, too.

    The difference between white, male, heterosexuals and the kind of people who envy them their exalted position in life is that, when they encounter some fake big shot or a jerk clerk, they don’t attribute the problem to something within themselves. They just figure the other person is either having a bad day, or is an a$$hole, generally.

    I am a grown woman, and I have had plenty of encounters with that glass ceiling, myself. But I also know that I’ve been able to get my way more often than not. Further, I know that it is pointless to see some universal principle involved on a day when I encounter an a$$hole being an a$$hole.

    hey José..

    The Scourge of Slavery


    Segal also observed that: “White slaves from Christian Spain, Central and Eastern Europe” were also shipped into the Middle East and served in the “palaces of rulers and the establishments of the rich.” He records that: “All slavic eunuchs.are castrated in that region and the operation is performed by Jewish merchants.”

    Historian Robert Davis in his book “Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters – White Slavery In the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast and Italy”, estimates that North African Muslim pirates abducted and enslaved more than 1 million Europeans between 1530 and 1780. These white Christians were seized in a series of raids which depopulated coastal towns from Sicily to Cornwall. Thousands of white Christians in coastal areas were seized every year to work as galley slaves, labourers and concubines for Muslim slave masters in what is today Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya. Villages and towns on the coast of Italy, Spain, Portugal and France were the hardest hit, but the Muslim slave raiders also seized people as far afield as Britain, Ireland and Iceland. They even captured 130 American seamen from ships they boarded in the Atlantic between 1785 and 1793.

    According to one report, 7000 English people were abducted between 1622 to 1644, many of them ship crews and passengers. But the Corsairs also landed on unguarded beaches, often at night, to snatch the unwary. Almost all the inhabitants of the village of Baltimore, in Ireland, were captured in 1631, and there were other raids in Devon and Cornwall. Many of these white, Christian slaves were put to work in quarries, building sites and galleys and endured malnutrition, disease and mistreatment at the hands of their Muslim slave masters. Many of them were used for public works such as building harbours.

    Female captives were sexually abused in palace harems and others were held as hostages and bargained for ransom. “The most unlucky ended up stuck and forgotten out in the desert, in some sleepy town such as Suez, or in Turkish Sultanate galleys, where some slaves rowed for decades without ever setting foot on shore.” Professor Davis estimates that up to 1,25 million Europeans were enslaved by Muslim slave raiders between 1500 to 1800.]

    ENOUGH WITH THE OVERPRONUNCIATION! I’m so sick of hearing that from all these fake celebs and politicians who recently just “rediscovered” that they were hispanic. It’s like hearing Paula Deen say “y’all” constantly. It just becomes jarring and offensive. Look at me, I’m LAH-TEE-NO! God, I hate that. Just makes me want to puke!

    as for this vargas fellow’s views, since when was it necessary to “see yourself” in a political candidate ? when did this total narcissism creep into the american conciousness ? we used to vote for a candidate because we thought that they had qualities and abilities that would serve the common good, not because they looked or acted just like us. we need to repudiate this kind of emotional non-thinking.

    We have the NBPP putting a bounty on a white man in Florida because he shot a black teen. Doesn’t matter that the Police and Prosecuting Attorney are still investigating. On the 4th of April a Black man shot a white man armed with a dog chain attached to a golden retriever. No arrest and the name of the shooter is not being published. Double Standard in the media is not a joke. I wish they would allow his name to be known so a bounty Dead or Alive could be placed on him. Holder would have a white group in prison in five seconds if that happened, but the NBPP is getting away with it and nothing being said by the media. Communist or Coward.

  • Mark Johnson

    I saw the panel discussion and had absolutely no idea what Vargas was talking about. Seemed completely nonsensical to me. As if “white heterosexual men” are one big monolithic group who think and act the same way and will only vote for the candidate that best represents their interests? I’m a white heterosexual male who votes based on how a candidate stands on various policy issues like energy, education, healthcare, etc. My sexual orientation and race do not enter into the equation. Vargas seems like a guy who has a great deal of bitterness from his experiences as an illegal immigrant, minority, homosexual, etc. and is looking for a scapegoat which turns out to be all white heterosexual men.
