The little piece of literature is making the predictable rounds around the Internet, so it is fitting that I took it from this site. Let me preface my comments with this: the piece is a sham. And according to this link from the outlet where this evil manifesto first appeared, the guy who wrote it doesn’t even believe it, but is using it as a publicity stunt to advance his writing career. That shows how easy it is to manipulate people that lack Biblical mindsets. I should know: I voted for George W. Bush. Twice. Please see below.
There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.
Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians. (Great job comparing working mothers to homosexuals, sex change operation recipients, and criminals.) There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.
His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. (Which has never existed anywhere in the world and never will.) In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard. The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. (Except when he applies them to himself using different buzzwords. As a matter of fact, the National Review’s Michael Graham wrote the book Redneck Nation, which asserts that blacks learned the victim mentality from southern whites!) “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding. (So people like this expect credit for doing what they should be doing anyway? A big thank you for being responsible moral people? What, your tie on Father’s Day isn’t good enough for you?)
He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives. (You can keep your Constitution written by humanists, freemasons, Unitarians, deists, and Enlightment philosopher wannabe slave raping Thomas Jeffersons. I will stick to interpreting by Holy Bible literally and living by it.) The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him. (And yet God was greatly bothered after destroying the wicked world with the flood. That is in Genesis, in the book whose literal interpretation should mean a lot more to you than the Constitution.)
The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter. (47% of Katrina victims were white. Most of the people stranded there either tried to ride out the hurricane or did not have cars.) His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American. (And these same people demand of everyone else that they only consider themselves Americans with no regard for race instead of “hyphenated Americans”. Self – serving hypocrisy comes with anger I suppose.)
He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch. (Can he cast out demons? Make the blind see? Heal the sick? Raise the dead? Otherwise I am not impressed.)
Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.” He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.
He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. (Does by fulfilling the worst stereotypes of their race does he mean people like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Of course not.) He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English. (I agree, George W. Bush should certainly learn English.)
Most important, the Angry White Man is @#$%ed off. (Amazing that an unnecessary coarse vulgarity that I just edited out was printed in a newspaper. Then again, maybe it isn’t amazing in the least.) When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. (Bush doesn’t. And by the way, black workers were displaced by the millions of Irish, Italians, Polish, and other white immigrants in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Not that any of you care about that.) When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. (Since you spoke of incomprehensible idiots, Bush doesn’t.) When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. (Remembers what? About how white people were perfectly fine with big government under the New Deal when they got 99% of the benefits, and only started wanting small government after the New Deal had built the white middle class and the Great Society tried to give blacks a LIMITED version of what whites received then and still disproportionately receive now under Social Security, MediCare, and prescription drugs and will receive in the near future with universal healthcare? Naah, angry white males have forgotten all that.) When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement. (What ever happened to “Do the crime, do the time, lock ’em up and throw away the key! Oh I forgot, that was before zero tolerance policies started being enforced on white suburban kids. None of these folks cared when blacks were receiving cruel sentences for minor crimes. Crack cocaine versus powder cocaine anyone? Or how about a life term because stealing a slice of pizza is your third strike?)
He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves. (Again, this makes her different from George W. Bush how? Amazing how none of these people care the least about how much money Halliburton, the Carlyle Group, Blackwater, and the oil companies have received via corporate welfare and outright fraud. And don’t get me started on faith – based programs and vouchers …)
There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush. (No comment required.) He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.
Suffice it to say this: ungodly anger is a sin. Evidence: Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath says Ephesians 4:26. Further James 1:20 says For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Now did righteous men in the Bible get angry? Yes, but it was godly anger. Godly anger is getting angry at one thing – SIN – for one reason – BECAUSE SIN IS A CRIME AGAINST A RIGHTEOUS GOD. Now if you have never experienced godly anger, then there is a great chance that you are not born again because either you have no concept in the spiritual matter of what a great offense vile sin is to God, or you know but don’t care. People like that make up the “judge not” community, as well as those that claim the grace of God grants one license to either be lascivious (Jude 1:4) or forces them to endure evil without condemning and acting against it (1 Corinthians 5:1-5). But if you get angry for any reason other than realizing what a profane stench sin makes in the nostrils of God and how abominable it is in the eyes of God and how it vexes and pains the very definition of love, mercy, patience, forgiveness, and righteousness, well then your anger is a sin. And that sin makes you every bit as much in danger of eternal judgment in the lake of fire as the people that you are angry with (some of which no doubt will be saved … Matthew 5:3 did say blessed is the poor for theirs is the kingdom of heaven after all)!
So please, follow The Three Step Salvation Plan so that your anger can go from being ungodly to being as the godly anger of Jesus Christ exhibited when He drove the moneychangers out of the temple, and do it right now for tomorrow is not promised to you.
