War on Whites?

In an Aug. 4 interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Alabama) disagreed that his party's stance on immigration could hurt it at the polls. "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," he said. "It’s a 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. Okay?" A couple of days later, he added that the GOP's efforts to reach out to Latinos is also part of that war.
