Demographically Significant?

April 18, 2015 at 2:37 pm (Uncategorized)

In the circles where I travel, work, social and political, overt racism is rare. Not unknown, but generally people know to keep socially unacceptable comments under wraps.

Last week’s comments by NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre then, don’t  fit into that category:

“Eight years of a demographically significant president is enough.”

Demographically significant? Oh, you mean, the U.S. has had a black president, now it might get a woman? How awful. What about all of the poor white men who would like to be president. (And of course, when I say poor, I mean unfortunate not actually poor – you can’t be president unless you’re rich)

OK, I’ll stop now, since sarcasm doesn’t always travel that well.

What LaPierre and his increasingly demographically insignificant base seem to miss is that Obama has been a faithful steward carrying out policies every bit as awful as Bush, and Hilary Clinton, if she gets the chance, will carry on just the same.
