GOP Rep. Mo Brooks Tells Ingraham: Dems Leading a ‘War on Whites’

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show Monday, Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) accused the Democrats of waging a “war on whites.”

Brooks was countering an assertion by Ron Fournier on Fox News Sunday that the GOP’s anti-immigration policies were turning them into a “party of white people,” which would culminate in a debilitating demographic disadvantage. Brooks flipped that around.

“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party,” he said. “And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else. 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. Well that’s not true.”

“Every single demographic group is hurt by falling wages and lost jobs,” he continued. “So the Democrats, they have to demagogue on this and try and turn it into a racial issue, which is an emotional issue, rather than a thoughtful issue. If it becomes a thoughtful issue, then we win and we win big. And they lose and they lose big.”

Ingraham called the “war on whites” characterization “a little out there.” “That phraseology might not be the best choice,” she said.
