Lee Kwan Yew, longtime leader of Singapore, once said this:
“In multiracial societies, you don’t vote in accordance with your economic interests or social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.”
And so it goes:
Nonwhites: 30% of voters — 5-to-1 for Obama
Whites: 70% of voters — 3-to-2 for Romney
(Various technical notes and discussion: Race was definitely the most salient division of the electorate. Breakdowns by age, education, and economic position were much more even, overall; young, old, rich, poor, college-educated, blue-collar, white-collar… every type of White favored Romney; every type of Nonwhite favored Obama. / I classify Jewish voters, 2% of the electorate [70% for Obama this time, 80% in ’08] as ‘Nonwhites’ to derive the above. As Dr. Kevin MacDonald points out, they are “a critical component of the new hostile elite”. We can debate to what extent Jews are ‘White’, but in terms of voting-behavior there is just no question: they are Nonwhite. They famously “live like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans”. / Subtracting Jews’ strong margin for Obama [despite Obama’s hostility to Israel] we find non-Jewish Whites supporting Romney by over 3-to-2, a decisive win for Romney. / Among only White-Protestants, Romney wins ~70%, says the same exit poll. [See here for breakdowns by race and religion in ’00, ’04, ’08, ’12] / Remove gays (35-to-10 for Obama) from any of these metrics, and you can bump the Romney margin up a few points. / In summary, as Steve Sailer noted, the closer one is to the “core of America”, the more likely one was to vote Romney).
Defacto White Disenfranchisement
Romney got as much of the White vote as Reagan, whose victories in the 1980s were considered landslides. Overwhelming (5-to-1) support for Obama among Nonwhites, who now constitute 30% of the voting-public, put Obama over the top. That’s the story of this election.
Even the big Republican talking-heads are saying it openly: “It’s not a traditional America anymore,” says Bill O’Reilly. “The White Establishment is now the minority…”
The Obama Fringe and the Romney Core
A VDARE author calls it “Obama’s Anti-White Coalition” (which is a blunter way of saying what Steve Sailer said: “Obama’s is an absurd coalition. It can be motivated only by exacerbating the bitterness of its members toward people fortunate enough to be closer to the heart of America”). Let’s be honest: it is precisely an ‘anti-White’ coalition. To many Nonwhite Americans, 2012 was simply a referendum on whether they wanted a White president or one who looks and thinks like this:
Nonwhites obviously prefer, and in fact are aggressively in-favor of, a Nonwhite president over (what is seen as) a quintessential WASP, regardless of any and all other factors. See the quotation by Lee Kwan Yew above. And speaking of which, why would Asians (the per-capita wealthiest group in the USA), vote so overwhelmingly, nearly 3-to-1, for the Democrat, rather than for the ‘pro-rich’ Republican? That just makes no sense. The richest group voted strongly for the “tax the rich” party! If you are unaware of the racial angle, that is, it makes no sense. It is perfectly clear with the race angle.
(Why are Nonwhites so ‘racialized’? Much is basic tribalism, but there is something else, too. This is tangential, but suffice it to say that much of the social-apparatus in today’s USA, especially the institutions which socialize children [schools], and entertainment [Hollywood], inculcates in Nonwhites “a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity” against Whites, to use the words of the postracial president. See “Beware of the White Crime Wave” for more of a treatment on this subject).

Shock and Disillusionment
This election was a traumatic shock to many, many Whites, who feel that their country has slipped away. Variations on “I don’t feel like this is my country anymore” can be seen by the million in every corner of the Internet, around millions of kitchen tables, at the proverbial water-cooler, and in the recesses of perhaps a hundred million minds.
It is good to get such a wake-up-call. Gregory Hood writes to those shell-shocked:
Take a good, hard look at those Obama victory rallies. They are celebrating your dispossession, your displacement from the country your ancestors built. They don’t even disguise their hatred. And even though you don’t think in terms of race, they do.
Michael Moore called it a victory over hate. Howard Fineman gloated that America was turning it’s back on tradition, and thank God. Twitter erupted with black voters screeching in triumph, bragging that America belongs to them now.
Even the President of the United States said “voting is the best revenge.” Revenge for what? Aren’t we all in this together? Doesn’t this country belong to all of us?
Do you get it yet? It’s revenge against you — for existing. It’s revenge for “racism,” for conservatism, for success, for being strong, and proud and accomplished. It’s vengeance against the America that once was. They have their revenge for the fact that your country existed. Barack Obama is President of these states united, and was re-elected because, not in spite of the fact that he despises everything America was.
From “Memo to White Male Republicans” by Gregory Hood
Today, it so happens, is November 11th — Armistice Day, the day World War One ended in 1918. Many of the men who were under arms for the USA that day, if teleported to the present, would refuse to serve. They would not recognize this is as their country, and would probably — on the whole — be hostile to it.
