John Nolte on the Scots-Irish revolt against Obama in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Arkansas:
“Last night was more of the same for President Obama. In Arkansas, he lost over 40% of the vote and a full 36 countries to a relatively unknown attorney who lives in Tennessee. In Kentucky, Obama lost over 42% of the vote and a full 67 counties to “uncommitted.” Rather than blame the President’s failed economic policies, his racial and class divisiveness, his war on the coal industry, or the decision to stop lying about his position on same-sex marriage –Democrats prefer to describe their very own as racist”
But it’s true!
With the exception of Arkansas, the Democrats have lost both chambers of every state legislature in the 11 states of the old Confederacy. They have ceased to be competitive in Dixie.
Might this have something to do with the near extinction of the Blue Dogs? John Barrow is the last White Democrat standing in the House from the Deep South.
Kentucky and West Virginia are border states. They are two of the most racially homogeneous states in America. The two party system has endured longer there because those states are less blessed by the wonders of diversity.
Eventually though, as the Democratic Party becomes the anti-white party, the urban party, the “progressive” party, it will alienate the Whites in those states who are similar to other Southerners, but comfortably secure at the state level, and they too will dump the Democrats.
