Working-Class White New York City Voters—a Cautionary Tale (My New VDARE Column is Up!)

 
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg marching at the 2011 Queens St. Patty's Day Parade in the Rockaways' West End. He's acting like he doesn't have a care in the world, for the camera's sake, but the crowd is not welcoming him.

Report from the Rockaways: Working-Class Whites—the Swing Vote Nobody Admits to Wanting

Here on New York City’s Rockaway Peninsula, Ground Zero for Hurricane Sandy, my majority-Irish, overwhelmingly Catholic, white working/middle class community will hold its annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, one of the biggest in the country, on March 2. It will showcase many of the same pipe-and-drum marching bands that will perform in the even bigger parade down Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue 14 days later.

And the Stix Family will be there, as usual.

When Michael Bloomberg, whom some neighbors call “the Mayor of Manhattan,” marches up front, no one will cheer. Some of my neighbors will boo him, and some will give him a one-finger salute. I will engage in my annual ritual of turning my back on him.

This article does make one wonder when, if ever, whites will wake up. One problem though is---I think-- that the Republican party, as a national entity is dead. I believe that we have seen the last elected Republican president,and that there is a very good chance that we have seen the last majority in the US Senate.
I also believe that Chief Justice Roberts signaled with his outrageous Obamacare ruling last summer that he has now joined forces with the four leftists on the Supreme court. If that is all true then white people are going to have to find an alternate way to weld power. If we have the will to do so.

If true, this would mean that white people can no longer shape political outcomes through elections. If that is the case, then we would need to seek an alternative if we have the will and the courage.
