Republican voted against anti-hate bill because it didn't condemn discrimination against whites

I’m a white guy. Have been all my life. Grew up in Wisconsin. I can honestly say that, other than a single incident in Spain when I overheard a Spanish guy say “Gringo” in my general direction (and with mild contempt), I’ve never felt unfairly singled out for being white. Then again, Spanish people are white, too. And that was probably just a comment on my overtly goobery Americanism. So, yeah, it’s really, really difficult to come up with examples. 

Apparently, other white people have had a different experience. Or not. Maybe they just like to whine.

One of these little baby snowflakes is Alabama congressman Mo Brooks, who has finally explained his no vote on the recent House anti-hate resolution.

Talking Points Memo:

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he voted against the anti-hate resolution in the House last week because it did not “condemn discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians.”

“In my view, discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians is just as insidious as discrimination against any other race, ethnicity or religion and the failure to specifically state opposition to discrimination against Caucasian-Americans and Christians, while reflective of Socialist Democrat priorities and values, is, by omission, fatal to the bill,” Brooks wrote in a press release.

“H.Res. 183’s intentional omission of Christians and Caucasians is insulting and suggests America’s House of Representatives cares about virtually everyone except Christians and Caucasians,” he concluded. “That implication is repugnant and I reject it!”

If the other 22 Republicans who voted no on the bill have explanations this lame, they should probably just keep their lily-white ham casserole-holes shut. (I hope that’s not an anti-white slur. I feel like it’s more of a slur against all my friends’ grandmas, honestly.)

So it looks like Brooks has gotten a jump on his War on Christmas in July wail. Not sure what anti-Christian discrimination is, really, other than the fact that right-wing Christians aren’t able to force everyone else to live their lifestyle, and gay people still exist. But, whatever.

When feeling persecuted is your pastime, guess you have to let everyone know about it. Just wish they’d keep it in the closet, you know?
