Oh no, he didn't really say that, did he? Yes, yes he did. Mo Brooks must have been dissatisfied with his meltdown on Chris Hayes' show Friday (video above), so he stepped up the rhetoric today.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) on Monday accused Democrats of making the Republican party's push for stronger border security about race, the Huffington Post reported.
"This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else," Brooks told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. "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."
Brooks made the accusation in response to National Journal columnist Ron Fournier's comment on "Fox News Sunday" that the Republican Party is becoming "the party of white people."
The congressman defended his stance on immigration, arguing that "every single demographic group" would be negatively impacted by an increase of undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
Yeah, he wasn't responding to Fournier. That was Mo Brooks' way of saying that the black guy in the Oval Office wants to take your way of life from you. Just another "take our country back" moment.
Meh, War on whites. How about a war on stupid?
