Middle Eastern Christians (Assyrians, Maronites, Chaldeans) all love the GOP only because it fits into their hatred of Muslims, which the GOP continues to express pride in.

You just engaged in truthiness (it sounds like it should be true based on gut feelings alone).

I am pretty sure (I am guessing) all those non WASP white ethnic groups voted for Obama based on how Obama won Jewish, Catholic voters, etc.

So your statement is a fail.

Ever been on the LebaneseForces forum? Maybe you should go stroll on there and see how many wingnut Maronites are out there in this country.

That’s like saying right wing Jews in the JDF are representative of Jews in general.

Also, your statement said they “love the GOP” implying they vote Republican. They can of course carry over their ethnic battles from the middle east (where Christians are repressed - a fact except in Syria where they actually are better off than say Copts are or were) to the USA but I don’t see any evidence they voted Republican.

Why? Because at the end of the day, these Middle Eastern Christians are not Protestants and are not the right blend of white people and speak Arabic and to racists in general Republicans, they might as well be al-Qaeda anyways.

We just had a report that Republicans were upset that the new CIA chief speaks Arabic so I have some basis in saying this about these Republican scumbags and why eastern Christians, while they may not like Muslims will not by and large vote Republican.
