Will White Supremacy In the US Ever Be Dealt with Effectively?

The problem of white supremacists will never beget with effectively in the US as long as people choose to remain in the state of denial that still exists.

Will White Supremacy In the US Ever Be Dealt with Effectively?

White supremacyThe problem of white supremacy will never be dealt with effectively in the US as long as people choose to stay in the state of denial that it still exists. Until people in this country acknowledge that white supremacy is alive and well in America, and we all take on the subject of racism, not much will change. In fact, white supremacy will probably increase to the point where it will create violent instability in this country. In most ways this would be a bad thing to happen, although I can actually see where this type of action may be necessary. Even though I embrace principles of nonviolence and pacifism, I can honestly admit that some type of “cleansing process” may be necessary.

By the term “cleansing process” I simply mean that it may be necessary for those of us on the Left to meet force with force, especially since most of the white supremacist organizations I’ve seen always seem to be well armed. I am suggesting that it may be necessary for those of us on the Left, to also be well armed and ready to use whatever means necessary to stop his ugliness known as “white supremacy” to end, or least be stifled to the point where it is no longer dangerous.

After the incident in Charlottesville, VA, we need to start considering the question, how does white supremacy affect society? Even though there have been other incidents of white supremacist violence, the incident in Charlottesville seems to bring the entire issue to a head. I, and I suspect other people, have come to the conclusion that every white supremacist group needs to be dealt with effectively. By effectively, I mean it’s such a way that it ceases to be a driving factor in today’s society, as it now seems. I think most of agree with we ask ourselves the question, “is white supremacy on the rise? The answer would seem to be yes definitely.

Even though I firmly believe in the U.S. Constitution and principles of freedom of speech, there comes a point when this freedom of speech should be controlled, especially if it leads to violence, as it did in Charlottesville. I’m not proposing we amend the U.S. Constitution or alter the clause dealing with “freedom of speech”, mostly because that would betray the very core principles upon which this document is based. I am suggesting that when this freedom of speech leads to violence, things have been allowed to go too far.

Like I said before, those of us on the Left and even those who consider themselves moderates, should be ready to meet force with force because the white supremacist have always kept violence as an open option for them to use when they see fit. Maybe it’s time we on the Left started thinking the same way. If they want blood, we on the Left should be ready to give it to them in full measure.

White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville, VA Breaks out in Violence Against Counter Protesters

White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville, VA Breaks out in Violence Against Counter Protesters

A white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA broke out in violence when a white supremacist attacked anti racism counter protesters. I can say is I’m at all surprised by this incident because I predicted that there may be some type of violence at this rally by white supremacists. I wrote about it in my last post.

Apparently, the violence began after someone drove a car into anti-racist counter-demonstrators. It is thought that this car was driven by white supremacists, who were probably trying to scare the anti-racists. Using violence to suppress opposers is nothing unexpected from people who thrive on hatred and violence against others who do may disagree with them. Typical fascist behavior!

Even though in a statement, Donald Trump addressed this violent incident he still refused to accept responsibility for the increase in hatred and racist violence in this country. He blamed “all sides” for the violence, still refusing to acknowledge that he has a “white nationalist”, Steve Bannon, on his cabinet. In case you do not know, the term “white nationalist” is a code word for white supremacist.

As if we can ever forget, Donald Trump used racist hate speech during his entire campaign for the presidency. He needs to own up to it and admit that this hate speech from his campaign may be a reason for the increased empowerment of white supremacists in this country. However, I will not hold my breath until he admits this connection between his campaign rhetoric and the increase in racist behavior in the United States. I don’t want to suffocate waiting for it!

 

The Left Must Always Oppose White Supremacists And Fascists

White supremacists and fascists must not be allowed to go unchecked by not only the Left, but society as a whole.

The Largest Fascist Rally in Recent Memory Is Expected This Week — Can the Left Unite Against It?

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41532-the-largest-fascist-rally-in-recent-memory-is-expected-this-week-can-the-left-unite-against-it

The Left Must Always Oppose White Supremacists and Fascists

White supremacists and fascists must not be allowed to go unchecked by not only the Left but society . These peddlers of hatred and racism must be stopped, by any means necessary. Even though I always embrace the concept of nonviolent resistance, it has gotten to the point where these people are so out of control that the time has come to resist them, even if it means violence.

After all, have they ever been afraid to use the tools of fear and intimidation against others, usually helpless minorities? No, they have not. And neither should we.

On August 12, many white supremacists and fascists I plan on having what they call “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The reason that Charlottesville, VA was chosen for the site of this rally is not to be because the city recently ruled that a statue of Confederate commander Robert E Lee was to be removed from a public park. This apparently set the wheels of racism in motion.

Even though some faith-based organizations have pledged to show resistance, as well as Black Lives Matter, no large-scale counter demonstration has been planned by most members of the Left. To me, this is a colossal mistake. By not responding to these white supremacists, we are conceding the field; something which leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I learned a long time ago that these types of hate groups cannot or should not be ignored.

As an answer to this lack of large-scale response, most leaders of the Left seem to make excuses instead of engaging in a real, meaningful action. They always seem to give the reasons (or better yet, excuse) that their involvement will only draw more attention to these groups and that if you leave them alone, they will go away. This is naïve bullshit!

At some point, the Left needs to realize that even though nonviolence is an excellent practice to use when changing government policies, or protesting some type of government action that is deemed to be unjust when dealing with groups whose entire existence is based on hatred of others, sometimes violence may be necessary and justified.

Don’t get me wrong, because I’m not saying that we should just shoot these people down the streets because that is the furthest thing from my mind. However, showing up in force, possibly ready to do battle if necessary, is probably a good idea even though I grant it would be risky.

The Left, and others, should realize that these people will not just go away. This is particularly true because they have become emboldened by the rhetoric of Donald Trump. They have come to think that because the President of the United States engages in hate speech and even hate action, it’s perfectly okay for them to express themselves, no matter how offensive it may be.

It is a past time the Left, and other people, stop laying down for these people. They are nothing less than an offensive blight on this entire country and should be dealt with effectively. If “effectively” means hurting some of these people, then so be it.

White Nationalists Becoming More Active on College Campuses

In January, the night before alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos was scheduled to speak at the University of California, Berkeley, two members of the white supremacist group American Renaissance got in a fistfight with other young men after they were caught plastering trees and buildings around campus with posters that proclaimed, “Embrace white identity!”

White Nationalists Becoming More Active On College Campuses

In and effort to persuade more students to buy into their doctrine of hate, White Nationalists are ramping up recruitment efforts on America’s college campuses.  White nationalists (a.k.a. white supremacists) are feeling much freer to recruit people, in particular, white students, than ever before.  This movement has not gone unnoticed by the Southern poverty Law Center (SPLC) who are also forming chapters on college campuses, across the nation.

White nationalists have become more emboldened to spread their racist message, within the last year.  Could there possibly be any connection between the election of Donald Trump, the appointment of white nationalist Steve Bannon Steve Bannon as National Security Advisor (NSA), and the current trend of Trump supporters committing acts of violence across the country? Personally, I think there is!

Although it may be unfair to place the blame entirely on the election of Donald Trump, for the resurgence of hate speech and racism across the country, but I and many others think that some of Trump’s ugly racist rhetoric during the election didn’t help the matter.  Sometimes, a small fringe element, such as the white nationalists, need to feel empowered by someone who holds a high office, to bring their activities more out in the open.  The election of someone whom they feel shares the same values (if you can call me that) as they do, often gives a “green light” to any group that deep down knows they are wrong, to start bringing their activities out into the public eye.

The very fact that white nationalists have become very sensitive about being rightfully labeled as “white supremacists” in itself says a lot.  After all, if someone is truly proud of who they are and what they feel their mission is, why do they choose to hide behind the name white nationalists.  If they truly feel that they are correct, why should they be proud of it?  The answer is; they are engaging in activities of hatred and violence that endanger public safety, and they know it.

This resurgence of racial hatred is a very ugly thing and needs to be combated at every level.  I’m very glad that groups like SPLC on campus SPLC on campus were started.  The Southern Poverty Law Center really deserves a lot of credit for stepping up and doing something proactive to fight the rise of white nationalism.

The Alt-Right: Who Are They?

On the political scene, there seems to be what is conceived as a “new group” that has arisen to take part in the political process in the United States.

The Alt-Right: Who Are They?

altright On the political scene, there seems to be a “new group” that has arisen to take part in the political process in the United States. They are the Alternative Right, also known as the “Alt-Right.” In actuality, these people have been around for a long time, although they preferred to be mostly unseen.

Members of the Alt-Right movement believe that the conservative movement in this country doesn’t go far enough to maintain “traditional values,” or to further the conservative agenda in the most efficient way. Many members of the normal conservative movement in the United States are afraid of members of the Alt-Right. They not only think that this movement is far too radical in its position, but discredits the entire conservative movement because many members of the Alt-Right movement believe that it’s okay to further its agenda by any means necessary. Often, these means include violence against those who disagree with their position, including other members of the conservative movement. They are often viewed as “loose cannons” to regular conservatives.

the-alt-right-is-not-racistThe Alt-Right espouses a belief system that is considered to be offensive by most people, mostly because of its nature. The Alt-Right is made up of white supremacists, or as they now seem to prefer to be known as “white nationalist.” This term is three just another buzzword for racist.  The ranks include such groups as, The Aryan Nation, the Ku Klux Klan, and skinheads.

Formerly, the Alt-Right preferred to remain in the shadows because of their activities, and that they were cowards about bringing their offensive belief system out into the public eye. Also, even within this movement, they were never confident about their numbers. Often, members of a movement of this type only feel empowered when they know that there are others who will defend their belief system. The only feels strength in numbers because they are too cowardly to stand alone.

However, with the election of Donald Trump, the members of the Alt-Right hand seemingly come out of the woodwork, mostly because a primary candidate has used their brand of hate speech in a presidential election. These members of the Alt-Right, or as I prefer to call them, bigots have felt free to come out and preach their hateful doctrine of racism because of a major political candidate, Donald Trump has encapsulated in his rhetoric something that they relate to; racism, sexism, Islamaphobia, Xenophobia, and anti-Semitism. These bigoted positions were mainstays of the entire Trump campaign.

Steve BannonEven though he doesn’t acknowledge it, Donald Trump has given these people a type of power they haven’t had in recent years. Not only does he refuse to acknowledge that he has given them free license to come out into the open, but he refuses to distance himself from them. He has even brought a prominent member of the Alt-Right into his cabinet as his chief of staff, the former editor of Breitbart, Steve Bannon.

Breitbart News seems to be the primary outlet for members of the Alt-Right to express themselves and spread their message of hatred and racism. This message is the main reason that the appointment of Steve Bannon to a position where he will have the ear of the president is controversial but dangerous. The Alt-Right also has a propensity for using the Internet for spreading its ugly word, particularly through the use of trolling and spreading hateful “memes.”

President-elect Donald Trump, if he is half as smart as he thinks, will put as much distance between himself and the Alt-Right as he can. So far, he hasn’t done that or even indicated that he has any intention of doing so.

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

Donald Trump Supporters Scare Me More Than He Does

If you didn’t think that Donald Trump was scary enough on his own, his supporters are more frightening than he is.  After reading this article in Mother Jones, I realize that Hillary Clinton was correct for describing them as “deplorable.” Most of the Trump supporters are deplorable, especially those who made it into this article.

Hillary Clinton made a mistake by attempting to walk back her statement.  I would have respected her more if she would have stuck by her original statement, perhaps with a small qualification, perhaps to distinguish those few Donald Trump supporters who are terribly misguided, disaffected, or merely angry at the system.

In many ways, it is true, especially when applied to the collection of lowlife and racist assholes listed in this article.  Most of these groups who identify themselves as Donald Trump supporters include everything from the KKK, The Aryan Nation, and other groups so have come to identify themselves as “white nationalists,” which has become a code word for a white supremacist.  In fact, many of these groups and people are on the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) watchlist for hate groups.  Most of these groups and people should be considered as no less that domestic terrorists.  These groups and people have used violence in the past and are very likely to use it again.  Hopefully, the FBI are also watching them closely.

These people like to hide their identity much in the same way a Klansman hides under a white robe and hood.  What a bunch of cowards, these Donald Trump supporters are!  Donald Trump should be ashamed that his ugly rhetoric attracts people such as these.  But as we all know, Donald Trump is shameless and is space proud of it.

Donald Trump’s candidacy for POTUS has brought a lot of these secret racist hate groups out of the shadows even though they are a fringe element that is in the minority. He has given them a voice and has validated their ugly mentality because Donald Trump has given voice to the same feelings they have. Much of his rhetoric is the same as what they have expressed for years.

Adding to Donald Trump’s lack of credibility is that he has not distanced himself from these people. He is just as much of a loser as his followers. Hopefully, after he is defeated, they will go back into the shadows and disappear just like he should.

White Supremacists love Donald Trump And His Racist Message

They may not dress in white hoods and robes and burn crosses as they once did, but their message of hate is still as offensive as it ever has been. In fact, now, it is even more offensive. The fact that people of this belief system have as much power as they do is quite scary. These people carried too much influence at the Republican National Convention, which happened last week. Donald Trump and his racist message against Latinos, Muslims, and others that many members of the Republican Party seem to feel threatened by was a big hit with these people.

These people are far more dangerous than some redneck living in some dilapidated trailer out in the country because they wield a lot of power and influence in the current Republican party. They absolutely loved Donald Trump’s racist message, put forth in his acceptance speech last Thursday. They felt that they had a lot in common with Donald Trump because he, like them, pandered to the lowest common denominator; racism.

Even though they seem to prefer being called “white nationalists” and other such terms, their message is all the same type of hatred as it always was. These people, like Donald Trump, deliver a message that is no longer relevant, especially in this day and age. They are believers in an “America First” policy that is no longer practical in the 21st century when the noted SM United States is so connected to the rest of the world. Even though we may be the richest nation on earth, we are still very dependent on the rest of the world to give us goods and commodities that we are no longer capable of producing ourselves, not to mention our huge financial interests.

During his acceptance speech, Donald Trump kept harping on the same point; blaming immigrants, Muslims, and Latinos for all the problems that exist in this country. In my opinion, is people like Donald Trump and other wealthy white men, mostly of European descent, who are the real villains here. The way I look at and as I have said before in earlier posts,I view this as just another attempt by rich white men to maintain their control of this nation’s wealth; something I view as being totally wrong. After all, why should this country’s resources be controlled by people like Donald Trump and the white supremacists who support him?
