An Alabama Republican Just Announced There is a War on White People and It is All Obama’s Fault

On Monday, Alabama’s Rep. Mo Brooks announced that there was a war on white people in America.

“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” Brooks told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

He then said he knew exactly who was behind racial offensive – the Obama White House.

“It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things,” Brooks stressed.

Now it appears, Brooks has no plans on backing down on his highly controversial claims any time soon.

On the same day, he told AL.com that Democrats were “attacking whites based on skin color.”

Then on Tuesday, he went as far as to tell USA Today that whites were unfairly targeted because “if you look at current federal law, there is only one skin color that you can lawfully discriminate against. That’s Caucasians — whites.”

He also went on NewsmaxTV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show to clarify he meant all white people, not just men when he was accusing Democrats.

“Embedded in federal statutes, what is the one race that can be discriminated against? As a matter of law. What is it?” he asked, adding, “Not just white males, but all whites.”

In case you were wondering, for a ‘discriminated against by liberals’ class, white folk are doing pretty well. Caucasians- the majority of them Protestant Christian – hold the lion’s share of the seats in Congress. White households are also benefiting from a widening wealth gap, and are, on average 11 percent richer than their non-white peers.

Yet despite this privilege and power, Brooks said white people are being targeted in America right now because Democrats keep calling them racist to get votes and that’s not fair.

“It is repugnant for Democrats time after time after time to resort to cries of racism to divide Americans and drive up voter turn out,” Brooks demanded. “That is exactly what they are doing in order to drive up their vote and they are doing it when there is no racial discrimination involved.”
