  1. HOOOOORAY!!! We are not a minority in our own country yet. There is hope after all. Be ready though, they will try again in the future.

  2. Hunter, that’s interesting what you say about Webb. Some folks at Stormfront were kissing Webb’s ass when he was first elected back in ’06. They were all going on about how one of Webb’s books – “The Fighting Scot-Irish” – was proof about how he had so much “love” for his people (Scot-Irish folk). Yea, he “loves” them so much he wants to bury them under a sea of brown.

  3. Great news. Looks like we have another two years. It’s better than nothing. Hopefully this vote will prompt a fresh round of sneers and charges of bigotry directed at White America.

  4. Even more surprising was Voinovich of Ohio who voted No.

    Although he voted against the last big amnesty attempt back in ’07, he needed to have his arm twisted hard in order to vote that way. One would think that with his retirement that he would vote however way he wants. A surprise indeed.

  5. One poster over at Free Republic posted this (I got a good laugh out of it) :
    “Harry Reid sucks a&&.
    I love making morticians sad! ”
    I never thought about it that way, but Reid does look like he could be a mortician. I can’t stand that white traitor and his perpetual sneer.

  6. A good Freeper comment:

    Donate to NUMBERS USA as a show of appreciation. I’m going to for the first time today. This organization has provided an integral grassroots campaign against amnesty in DC.

  7. Did Webb vote YES on the DREAM Act? If so, that makes him especially hypocritical since his famous Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal this summer was all about how affirmative action for recent immigrants was unjustified and unfair to Whites.

  8. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard on this – it’s good to win.

    I hope others who have sat out American politics for a long time, will come back in and learn from this victory; learn the right ways to participate, challenge to win and yes win.

    Thanks Hunter for the kind words about Kirk, I have close relatives who worked on his campaign and one apparently has a Washington job on his staff.

  9. Yeah, this vote makes Jim Webb a profoundly contemptible piece of filth. Maybe he is angling to challenge Obama or for 2016.

  10. Great news that the DREAM Act was defeated. I really enjoy the live blogging of important votes. It’s a unique feature of OD, and a good one. I’m not sure how gays in the military will affect me or White Americans directly, but I imagine there will be unintended consequences overseas, as propaganda has effects in the real world.

  11. See, I told you this whole thing was nothing more than a facade and the Dream Act would never get approved. White Democrats and blacks don’t want it passed anymore than conservatives. As far as McCain is concerned, it’s all an act to get the neocons back in the good graces of the American public.

    Jack, have you ever meet Kirk? If so, what he is like political wise? Just curious.

    Jack Ryan replies:
    No. I have worked some in Illinois Republican politics in the past and Illinois hasn’t been a good place for implicit White identity politics. It’s usually just Downstate and White Western/Northern suburbs against Chicago. We had some racial politics for awhile back in the 1980s when Black ex-con Harold Washington was elected mayor and White Eastern European Ethnics formed opposition on the city council, there was even a short break with these White ethnic Democrats flirting with Republicans – going to Reagan – that was when Pat Buchanan was working in the Reagan administration as Director of Communications – Pat wanted Reagan Democrats to all come over to Republican Party and make the Democrat party and all Black, Liberal, Leftist party – but Republicans in Illinois just don’t like to go for such rough stuff. And there are lots of idiot non racialist pro life, libertarian, types in Illinois who do foolish things like run Black conservative talk show host Alan Keyes for US Senate as a Republican against Barack Obama. I think Keyes didn’t win 30%.

  14. “Donate to NUMBERS USA as a show of appreciation”
    Good idea. I am going to donate $30. It isn’t much, but all I can afford right now. Their web server must be very busy as I cannot get through, or the donation would have already been made.

  15. Rodger,

    It’s all a conspiracy!

    No, it is more like Tea Party primary challenges has struck fear into the hearts of the likes of John McCain and Orrin Hatch and Lindsey Graham and the other Republican Senators who voted for the DREAM Act in the past.

    The 5 Democrats who voted against the DREAM Act and the no shows like Joe Manchin are also afraid of facing voters in Red States with large numbers of anti-amnesty conservatives.

  16. There were enough Republicans who voted for the DREAM Act in the past to push it through this time. This victory was due entirely to the application of grassroots pressure and primary challenges.

  17. Murphy, the gays in the military issue is as destructive as the Dream Act was. The majority of gays side with the anti-White coalition. The effects will be alot of normal White Americans leaving the military or refusing to join and possibly the anti-White coalition eventually taking control of our nation’s military.

  18. Hunter whether you ridicule it or not, what I predicted has happened. There are more than enough Democrats to have pushed this through and they don’t care what the Tea Party thinks!

  19. There were not enough Democrats to push it through. Right now there are only 57 Democrats in the Senate. They needed 60 votes for cloture.

    Your conspiracy theory is absurd. The Democrats have only brought the DREAM Act to the floor 3 times now. Reid was threatening to push it through at Christmas, but Wyden has surgery tomorrow and he couldn’t wait.

  20. If you are wondering why Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal passed the Senate, look no further than New England. In the House, every single congressional district in New England supported repeal. It was the votes of Brown, Collins, and Snowe that carried the day on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

    One more thing … if the vote had been held in January, it would have failed because the Democrats lost a net 6 Senate seats in the midterm elections.

  21. This is all staged. They are trying their best to preserve the latino alliance in the party without giving up any power to them. Use some common sense. Who’ll be more affected by an illegal alien amnesty? A politician seeking re-election in KY or one in CA? An amnesty would effectively shut out the SPWLs in politics because these aliens will vote in their own.

  22. Why is they always put light skinned looking latinos who could pass for White out to represent the illegals? Isn’t that racist?

  23. *”they’re going to cry!!!”

    *”they sound like some of our Vanguardists”

    Damn typos. Is there anyway you guys can make so that you can edit your comments?

  24. The more I think about it, the more I realize how much of a mindfuck gays in the military really is for traditional (i.e. White) America.

  25. Why would a queer wanna join the military anyway?

    I dunno, same reason they want to become clergy in every single church on Earth… because they’re a vanguard of cultural Marxism?

  26. I think it has something to do with being deployed and not being with your wife or girlfriend and they think you might be persuaded to turn. I used to be in the Navy and it was full of them including a number of bisexuals. The really daring ones got busted and discharged. I’d hate to think what would happen to them now. Probably a slap on the wrist for sexually assaulting someone.

  27. Lugar is one of the most vile, disgusting pieces of walking offal ever to have despoiled the Earth. Not all of Dr. Pierce’s ideas were so bad, re: dealing with Creatures like Lugar.

  28. “Can anyone offer an alternative to the Dream Act?”

    Put your own people first and last.

    If an invader has a college place they have a college place one of your own people could have had.
    If an invader has a house they have a house one of your own people could have had.
    If an invader has a job they have a job one of your own people could have had.

    Turn any point thay use round and attack them with it.

    “Why is they always put light skinned looking latinos who could pass for White out to represent the illegals? Isn’t that racist?”

    That’s a great work-safe attack line.

  30. Now comes the best part: the overreaction and the ensuing racial polarization.

    Luis Gutierrez is a fantasist who is stupid enough to believe he is Martin Luther King. Get your popcorn!

  31. He should tell them to hate whitey some more, tell Kos to racialize everything at all times.

    We always have our phrase, “anti-white” the baseball bat of attack phrases.

    Read between the lines at Kos and it reads that whites should just die but not die just pay taxes but get displaced and not pay taxes its all so confusing.

    SPLC just got labled a hate group now we need to work on the other radical lefties as hate groups. Kos is anti-white.
