They ain't gonna take it no more...and I'm gonna join 'em! - Rev. Manning

YouTube - White folks are gonna rise up! Preacher David Manning

I just love how this guy goes off. In his rant he makes some good points, but I really don't think white people are going to riot.

Do you think that people are really getting as upset with overreaching government as this guy seems to think?

I do not understand... in America it is only the white people who suffer from bad economy? I would think this would have effect of all Americans? Black, Hispanic, European and white alike, yes?

I think this person from video is maybe a little extreme in his views, but I am not clear what it is he has for answers to the problems he mentions. What I do not like is people like this to point out many problems of anything but offer no solutions either...

He's not talking about the bad economy, he's talking about the government expanding policies of the Obama administration, the increased divisiveness of Obama using race and class to divide Americans and pit them against one another, the resulting loss of freedom and liberty, and all the marxist, socialist, and progressive tools being used by Obama to fundamentally change America.

ahhh! Okay Smilin, I misunderstand his meaning then. But if is true Obama tries to divide Americans, then maybe his predictions are plausible to think I say, the question is what would push them over the limits to rise against the administration. It seems still to me a little extreme.

White people rioting is a lot extreme. I just don't see it happening. I hope not. But there are people on the progressive left that are encouraging Obama to use every tool available to circumvent the now republican congress and force his agenda upon an unwilling america. Clinton was actually more pragmatic in his acceptance of a republican majority in congress and found ways to work with them. The next two years will be very interesting in how will Obama deal with this situation. Will he try to find a way to work with congress or will he use executive orders and bureaucratic rulemaking to implement his agenda. If he uses the latter to continue down the path he has been on then I think things will only get worse. An example would be to use the EPA to implement carbon limits. There are many things like this that he could do that would circumvent congress and implement policy.

I think the main difference here is that unlike today, the majority of Clinton era Republicans weren't quoted as saying something to the effect of "and our first order of business will be to refuse to cooperate on anything the president does, says, doesn't, or didn't."

@ PC: I understand that sentiment, but isn't it a chicken and egg argument? Haven't the dems used procedure to shut repubs out of the process and debate while they held a super-majority? Isn't it fair then that now that republicans control the house that they do the same to the democrats?

Chicken and egg is a good way of putting it; I do get the impression the current administration didn't handle their relationship with the opposition very well from the start. So is it fair? I can't say. Is it the best way to start getting things done? Definitely not.

No, it's not fair! Not fair to the citizens of the country class, who support the ruling class. They are playing a game with us. Pitting tax payers against entitlement receivers, R against D, brown against white, all to secure their positions of power and the wealth they drain off in the transaction of taking from some to give to others to whom it does not belong. We should all rise up against the ruling class and take away their most cherished prize: their power to dictate winners and losers all the while enriching themselves.

I don't get this bizarre meshing of race with seemingly unrelated political issues. Rural white people are numerically the prime beneficiaries of social welfare programs. I also have no idea what Obama has done that might be considered racially divisive.
