Angry White Man?

I have just come across this article via one of my online communities, and needless to say, the hair stands on the back of my neck when I read it. Some choice excerpts:
“Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him.

So, which word, exactly, is a curse-word? Press, One, or English? Perhaps Mr. Hubbell meant "curse-phrase".

Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and
got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to
help themselves...

Oy Vay. So Mr. Hubbell's "Angry White Man" believes that people who drowned in Katrina were "helpless and stupid". Such as the elderly, poor, etc. How disgusting.
He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

Of course he guides the family...he's da man, after all. UGH. Mr. AWM seems to have a lot in common with some of his Muslim brothers.
He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

I hope Mr. AWM is as critical of the fact that this entire article typifies the worst stereotypes of his race. Perhaps he had better also brush up on his English so that he doesn't mistake a phrase for a word in the future.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman.

Yep. This is par for the course. Of course they hate Hillary. She represents the world that is coming (with equanimity of the sexes and a move far away from "might makes right")- the exact opposite of what the "Angry White Man" wants: women who are seen and not heard, speak only when spoken to, and are barefoot and preggers in the kitchen, while he with the biggest guns wins.

This article sounds like a call to all disenfranchised macho freaks. Poor fellas. Those men are feeling like dinosaurs (and they are dinosaurs). Their paradigm is flapping around like a fish out of water- gasping violently as it realizes its days are numbered.

Thank Goddess.

You summed it all up in one word:disenfranchised.

As long as a man does not feel powerful in himself, he will prey upon others as a panacea, to soothe his wounds.
