The Angry White Man by Bruce Tarleton

While perusing through a newsfeed the other day, I came across an article about the latest comments of Mr. Bill Clinton.  In the article it was reported that Bill blamed his wife's loss to Trump's ability to attract Angry White Men.  And I had to laugh.  Allow me to explain.

The Angry White Man label has been around for a few years.  But 8 years ago it didn't have the negative stigmatism that has been attached to it of late.  In fact, I proudly wore the term myself for quite a while.

It was in 2008 that I read the term in an article in the Aspen Times.  And it resonated with me.  So much so that I used it as my screen name on that other News blog site.  Those of you who know me from the NV days will remember that I was AngryWhiteMan63, or AWM for short.

The article was prophetic.  It made sense then, and it makes sense now.  The problem then was it was ahead of it's time.  The article talked about Hillary and the 2008 election.  Unfortunately, Hillary didn't receive the nomination then. 

But she was the nominee this election cycle.  And the article still resonates with truth.  Written by Gary Hubbell, here it is in part:

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.

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. 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. “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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. 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. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. 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.

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.

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.

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.

It's almost as if he wrote it for this election.  One thing that strikes me is the fact that nothing has changed in the last 8 years, making this article just as current as it was when he wrote it in February of 2008.

So I have to wonder, did Bill read this article in 2008?  Because I'm pretty sure he's not too far from the truth in blaming this demographic for his wife's failed bid.

Bruce,

Matt is very much an alpha male, so when I read this I cracked up:

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.

That would never be the description he would use about me or our marriage. It is a partnership. We are both rational beings. He is not intimidated that I am more educated, nor do I talk down to him, since he steadfast and strong. Maybe the angry white male is stuck in his father's decade, and hence why he is angry.

Marriage is always a two way street, a give and take proposition.  Doesn't matter what politics are. We were polar opposites during most of our marriage. she being more liberal and I mean way out there liberal and me of course being a moderate conservative drifting to hard core conservative and then back to moderate.  Still we had many other things that kept us going strong.  We treated each other as equals from the start.  Both my parents were democrats and I actually was a registered democrat, but voted my heart.  Many times we both voted ourselves for president because the choice was nill. No I don't think we are stuck in our fathers decade, many of us made our own way without the elder generation.

Granted not all but many of us did.  The Angry white male/female is still there and going strong. They will never be gone til this country's demise.

Gene,

From your description, you are your wife were different but equal. In my marriage, we are more alike than different, although politically we disagree from time to time, since my hubby is a democrat and I am an independent. But politics aside, on the big life decisions we make them mutually.  What Bruce wrote meant that he is the boss, and that his wife couldn't make rational decisions. That is what I am referring to.

I am sorry you feel that the country is heading for demise. I am an optimist. And despite that fact that I didn't want Obama, and I didn't want Trump, I still think we will pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and carry on.

All republics end at one time or another, Perrie that is what I meant.  We were nothing alike in the beginning. just a need from both of us. we Married 6 days before I left for Vietnam.  Not knowing whether I would return or not.  I did not want my parents especially my dad to get my insurance if that happened.  Dad controlled everything in our house he was an abuser and user, my older brother turned out just like him.  Mom on her death bed told me and my wife that she was glad she was finally getting rid of him.

I wasn't going to turn out that way.

Many times I've told my wife she makes decisions based on her heart, where I would make decisions based on logic.  And she agrees with that.  I don't feel he's too far off in his statement.  I feel he's stating that women tend to show more emotion than men.

To me this article is right on. These are the people that wanted the swamp drained of those who keep trying to take the persuit of happiness away from the American trying to achieve that happiness irregardless of color, race or national background.  She was one of the main characters that forgot what/who made this country.  Bill was a draft dodger refusing to defend this country by going to England, irregardless of his Rhodes Scholar crap he was above the rest of us that got drafted and went because our country called us.  

Those that put themselves above the Angry White men/women of this country, deserve the ire of those people.

 "white men" is a racial term, obviously.

Race meaning white vs black. Which is the only paradigm you understand John.

The article is about men vs women.

Which is appropo since the losing candidate ran on that platform.

The "I am Woman" campaign fell flat on it's face, since she lost the married woman vote by 20 points. (and yes I predicted it before it happened, there are a few on the site that know that, ask around)

So I guess the woman came to their senses and didn't vote their emotional ties to womanhood this time around.

But typically, Angry White Man is a racial dog whistle for you John, and as usual you come running, predictably.

It's the only context you recognize.

This article is simply a way for white men to pat themselves on the back. And yes, that is racial.

Perhaps you missed that part in the article John.  When Gary Hubbell wrote this in 2008, the racial tensions were no where near the level they are now.  And the catalyst for that is because of people like you, who want to use "race" to segue into racism.  And I'm not going to have it in this article. 

Gary Hubbell was not talking about the White Race.  He was talking about the American.  So far this article has generated some good discussion, and one butthurt:  YOU.  If you can't discuss the issues of the angry American without concentrating on the White race, go play in your own article.

Wow... come on now. Let's get real. No matter how you feel about Hillary's politics, that comment is totally over the top. If a liberal said that about Trump, you would mock them.

And Trump pandered to the Angry White person. And it is really quite simple why. This is the first time that they see the demographics of America changing and they find that scary. I while I do agree that PC has gone over the top to a certain degree, but I still feel that the average American wants the same thing.; food on the table and a fair working wage, and civility.

I find the term angry white male to be offensive. The label is used to pitch a false narrative without actually having to have an honest discussion about issues.

The term was coined by the Social Justice Warrior and PC crowd that wants us to apologize for the racism we don't have, the rapes we don't commit and everything wrong with our society. All men are bad but minority men aren't as bad because white men are the root of all evil and they too are victims of the white male. The narrative is meshed with faux feminism too.

Let's not forget that men are actually predisposed to have these traits and women are genetically programmed to be attracted to those traits. There is no doubt that women posses traits that provide balance to some of our traits and this is why we are better people with them. This doesn't mean you have to become a woman to gain the acceptance these SJW's and PC crusaders. 

I always laugh when i see the millennial guy espousing ridiculous SJW and bastardized feminist comments. That guy is just trying to get laid by putting down his club and tucking his junk in his skinny jeans. I have no respect for that idiot. Embrace your masculinity, it's OK to be a strong man. Society is better with us than without us.

I didn't even notice the white when i woke up this morning.

BF,

While I recognize that there are Social Justice Warriors, I don't think that it's as much of a phenom as the press would have you believe. I have seen my daughter's friends. They graduated, hold jobs and wear Levis or Gap on the weekend. The girls reject men who are not men, but they also want to be treated with respect and not talked down to. They balk at sexism as much as they balk at wimps.

My girls are like me. Not very PC. They recognize that it's about prettying up for the uber sensitive.  

Most of this is driven by the media. It doesn't mean it has been swallowed.

Personally, I have found almost every Chinese person I've met fairly calm. The only time I've seen "angry" (although it's possible that the Chinese are good at maintaining a calm exterior when angry) is when an auto accident happens and the drivers are shouting at each other. No fisticuffs, just shouting - gathers quite a crowd of onlookers.

Unfortunately as I aged I lost some of my ability to get angry. Anger was replaced with sadness. I need to work on cultivating positive anger. I suspect it as been repressed and can lead to health problems. Anger is an emotion that is natural and I feel like something is missing. I was born into an environment where angry black man were burning, looting and driving the whites out of what would become their city. We are all affected by our environments and maybe that defused some of my anger. For the last several years I've struggled to get my anger back. I feel like I lost it after reading some of the Dalai Lamas work where he claimed anger was a negative emotion that is harmful to yourself both physically and mentally. Then I read some psychological articles saying anger is healthy and repressing it is harmful. I really don't know if it's good or bad.

I appreciate you sardonic reply, Dean, but I too lived in one of those type of neighborhoods and here are some things you didn't mention. 1. Many blacks didn't like having their homes ruined by a few and 2. Many whites were being down right bigoted towards them as a group. Just FYI.

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.”

Oh for cripe sakes.  I almost peed myself when I read this horse shit. 

Here's what I think.  I actually agree that the article has some very valid points.  The changes in our society are happening too fast for some people.  For instance, let's take..........I don't know.........white men.  In many instances they are no longer the bread winner in the family and their wives are more educated then they are.  On top of becoming inferior on the home front, they also have to compete with those "other" people in the work place.  Gone are the days in which they are given carte blanche respect because they are men and they are white.  Nowadays they have to earn that respect.  Oh.....the horror! 

Yeah, we got it, you're angry and this time your anger has won.  Enjoy the next 4 - 8 years because whilst you sit around scratching your crotches, belching, farting and shooting off your guns and neglecting your wives the "other" people are multiplying.

and neglecting your wives

I don't think you're qualified to make that kind of judgment about me sister.  That's requires huge assumptions on your part.  Should I assume from that comment that you are experiencing neglect within your own household?

Well Bruce....I didn't say you were neglecting your wife.  I was speaking in general terms.  As far as me personally, I've learned not to share anything otherwise it's twisted.  So, with that in mind, if I offended you regarding your relationship with your wife then I sincerely apologize.  You are absolutely correct I should not make assumptions.

Not all men are like your husband or your personal experience.

Opps looking at the wrong video... I find that one kind of disturbing... But you know what.. it does remind me of the following video, and SJW's are not the issue. Frustration is. And I think that is what is being expressed here. Frustration.

Perrie, I can't believe you posted that clip from Falling Down!  It's what I immediately thought of when I saw this article.  Well, that, and the fact that Bruce actually has more heart than he will ever admit to a jury of his peers.

Sister Mary,

Glad you see this the way that I did! 

And I will verify that Bruce does have heart.

Off topic.  Moderators, please delete his comments.  They are in violation of my RBR. 

Also per this section of the CoC:

If a member is violating the CoC with intent of disrupting or being arbitrarily argumentative, the author must warn the member civilly, that they are violating the CoC and to stop or leave the article. The author can contact administration to remove all comments pertaining to an argument. Intentional disruption of an article is defined as " A continuous exchange of posts between two or more members, which goes off topic and/or are personal attacks resulting in the disruption of the article". Any/all off topic remarks or CoC violations can be removed by moderators. 

I ask that his comments be removed, and he be instructed to stay out of the article.  He is being disruptive and arbitrarily argumentative.  He has been told to leave the article due to his conduct.

MTV finally pulled this video after outrage. YouTube has pulled it numerous times.

This is the common thinking among SJWS

No one talks about the Red Man's Burden. Yet we have the most to complain about. We too have seen our nation change. In fact, we lost our nation. We have honor, and was given none. We treat our woman with respect and as equals. We tried to work within a system that was not of our making, and believed that if we had honor, the people we dealt with would have honor and hold to agreements, but that was not the case. We are forgotten in discussions about America. We are America's invisible people and this spans across America. So when we see some notice about our burden, we might care about yours.

We have discussed it on this site in depth Kavika, it is an interesting subject and most of us are very sympathetic. This article however is discussing a different subject. 

I would think it inappropriate if you were labeled Angry Red Man too. It's insulting.

Wow Kavika I certainly wasn't trying to provoke you. I am sorry you took it that way. We do discuss your issues here and many of us are sympathetic to those issues. What the fuck is wrong with that? I can't feel emotional when I read a problem you encounter?

That's on you.

BF, you can find sympathy between shit and syphilis in the dictionary. I don't need or want it.

You may believe that it is discussing a different subject, but it isn't BF. The article is about ''angry white men'' and the use of the term. It's about  the election/PC/Clinton/etc. and why that group voted for Trump.

If Bruce feels that it is off topic, he can have it deleted.

Kavika - To me the article represents what many white men and women have been feeling for some time now.  Whether people believe they have a right to feel disenfranchised or not doesn't matter.  In my opinion, the PC of the country has in a sense muzzled people from expressing how they feel.  They've been told that they don't have a right to complain or to be upset because they are white and they have been given every opportunity whereas other minorities have not.  They've been told if they complain then they must be racist or anti (fill in the blank).  So, basically they feel that their voice was taken from them and I don't know that I disagree with that.  We are going to have to find a way to talk about race in this country without dismissing people or making them feel dismissed.

Bruce - You may not remember or maybe you didn't see it but back in March I wrote a small article about this very issue titled "what's the anger really about".
