  • Trump is to blame and his days in office are slim now since he will be removed for breaking laws or voted out in 2020. :) Life will be so much better again with him out of office.

  • It obviously makes the left feel good about themselves to call all Trump supporters "white supremacists," but once again, they are ignoring the facts that get in the way of what they want to say.

      The statement you made is what I called ludicrous. I read your reply. It's inane. I will not engage. Good day.

      @loveslongnails "I read your reply. It's inane. I will not engage." You respond and then say you will not respond and call me inane. I agree that this discussion is now concluded.

  • You know what this is great. Reading the comments I see that most men seem to be waking up to the liberal brainwashing machine and many women as well! But the female population is still largely brainwashed but clearly you can see on just the small sample size of this website, that women are waking up in appreciable numbers! This is very good.

    We can finally end the bullshit the left is spewing. Labeling everything as hateful when it isn’t. It’s amazing how they can figure out ways to say things are racist. It’s really easy, it’s like when you make things sound gay. Anything can sound gay if you look at it with that perspective ya know? We always love to joke and turn things to make them sound gay it’s fun and silly.

    Well the left can make anything sound bigoted except now it’s not funny it’s detrimental. But luckily it seems people are rapidly wKing up.

    Unfortunately the college brainwashing engine is still doing a good job creating new idiotic liberals and since the government is giving out loans for school like candy a lot of people are still getting brainwashed.

    But overall things are improving!

    As far as white nationalist groups go I feel like they are dying. The free market capitalists are doing a very good job of destroying racist mentalities. Many alt righters and such groups are waking up as well. They are seeing that freedom is the fundamental nature of humanity and we are all better off the more freedom is had.

  • Racism and bigotry have existed in America since our beginnings. We have spent hundreds of years working to rid our country of it, but it still exists. When Obama ran for president it was almost unthinkable that a person of color would be president. The racial rhetoric rose quite a bit around that time and so many lies about him that were caused simply because of his color. One of his chief antagonists back then was Trump pushing the lie that Obama was not born in America. He continued that lie even when it was firmly proven that Obama was a natural born American. He finally admitted that Obama was born in America about the time Trump began running for president. Then he started accusing Obama of being a Muslim and supporting terrorists.
    His financial and political supporters have largely been extreme racists. As they use media to propagate their hatred, Trump has supported them. After acts of terrorism by racist groups in America, Trump has said those groups are nice people. During his campaign he told people to attack those protesting him and said he would offer legal support to those who were arrested for that.
    He continues to name call and lie about anybody he disagrees with, and his base gets incited and loves it, which just gets him doing it more.
    There is no doubt that Trump supports and foments the violence. And the Republican Party follows him and allows him to do what he wants, no matter how illegal or unconstitutional it is.
    So the answer is that he certainly is a major reason for that rise.

  • Okay, so. I feel as if this sense of Supremacy is only stemming out now that Trump has become president but is worsening because his term is almost over. It’s getting progressively worse because of modern Liberalism.

    It’s not as if they only just existed but because they have a voice to speak for the anxieties they feel and a beacon of hope within that voice, they’re clinging onto him.

When Obama was in office, it was the Chinese, now is the Muslims and Latinos! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m just confused!

      Why are they quoting Trump then? Wow, are you really that much in the dark?

    • 5d

      Not really. I just happen to know who made illegal immigration a core part of his campaign and who came up with "build the wall." Might come as a shock, but presidents don't write their speeches themselves. Particularly this one.

  • Trump is a bit of an idiot but he certainly isn't a white supremacist and certainly not responsible for the actions of what white supremacists do. The responsibility of the despicable actions of the terrorist in Christchurch is that of the terrorist alone as he made the decision to do the shooting and carried it out and it's his fault alone, he will be held accountable and punished for his actions and no one else should be including Trump as the terrorist has nothing to do with Trump.

  • What strikes me as odd is the loudest people shout white supremacy comes from white middle/upper middle class leftist. The very white leftist who vie for political power/control. So maybe there is something to the notion of white supremacy. White leftist rial up non-whites to villainize/ demonize the 'right' so as to 'appear' the better option. Yeah, white supremacy exist... on the left.

      ..."I get what they are trying to do, so I have to remind myself of this." That statement alone made him the bigger of the two in my mind. I certainly would not have the patience either. So a better man than me. Again, a hyphen is partly to blame for this. Further, to your own point, I am reminded of a comedy bit by Chris Rock who says to white folks regarding the growing Spanish speaking population within the US - and I am paraphrasing - "Hey white folks! We should be banding together because us black folk only speak English, too!" It isn't always about looking alike where cultures find common ground. Hell, even asshole Adolph knew this when having those 9 Waffen SS foreign legion units created because, of the theory of the enemy of my enemy (specifically Jewish eradication) kind of thing. Rock's comments, albeit taken in the comedic spirit in which they were 'then' delivered, would be seen as dangerous dialog today.

      Getting back to your observation and my own wonder, how does one move passed a sense of being inferior by virtue of another expressing their cultural supremacy? Which, I will admit does exist from an inventive stand point and in a great degree. The English can break German codes (with the assistance of German technology) and the Germans gave us jet and rocket propulsion which us in the States (again with German aid) we ran with.. which again pointing to my initial observation that some ethnicities are just more efficient at killing en masse - the prize going to Germany for their innovation and attention to detail. Regardless, I am hard pressed to call Germany a master race as the saying was coined at the time. An entire population being snowed over by a Austrian Corporal? I mean, come on! That's as nutty as Russians getting snowed by whacky SOB from Georgia with more insecurities than an American high school teenager over still being a virgin - I am sure you have seen the multitudes of post here on this nutty subject.

    • 2d

      LOLOL Yeah. I agree, but yes. Cultural premise is important. But like I said America is non-homogenous. So the example doesn’t really work very well.

      In the same regard, eliminating the hyphen system could be progress, but due to our cultural melting pot we have certain issues such as different black primary diseases. So it would be used in medical and knowledge.

      I don’t know really how to progress from here. I imagine first off try giving black reputations for slavery maybe? I mean the Jewish do get reparations. If we can educate the younger black generations to be upstanding citizenry than we wouldn’t have the weird premise of prejudicial judgement.

      I don’t know, but I guess telling blacks to suck it up is kinda bad. I mean... The Black Wall Street race riot STILL hasn’t even received reparations and blacks were bombed by our own countrymen.

      I guess the hyphen system is unfortunately important when we are at such racial tension.

  • That Trump was elected is the symptom and not the cause.

    Additionally even the rise in nationalism and more conservative, right-wing views is reactionary. It's not that people one day wake up and think "I gonna start hating kikes, niggers, spics, sandpeople, etc.". Instead the political, ideological push got so far into the extreme left that this right now is a counter-reaction.

    Unfortunately extremes always lead to extremes. And just like the increase of the extreme left, an increase of extreme right-winged positions are happening.

      @juliaanita

      Here's your homework assignment.

      Hispanic and Latino Americans are the largest ethnic minority, comprising an estimated 17.8% of the population. The White, non-Hispanic or Latino population make up 61.3%

      If we divide 61.3/17.8 we get approxitialy 3.44. There are around 3.44 times as many whites as Hispanics in the US.

      Now here's your part of the homework. Take the FBI numbers and divide the white population by 3.44 that number would be how many crimes they commit if their population size was equal to number of Hispanics. Than with this adjusted information tell me who commits more crime.

      I wasn't bullshitting when I said you can't handle 8th grade critical thinking.

      ""I also don't see any reference to a total Mexican populaton in the United States. ""
      The information is labeled 'Hispanic
      or Latino' either you do not know what those words mean OR you cannot read a graph properly. Whichever it is you are it's another reason you are fucking stupid.

      Look I actually feel bad insulting a 14 year old girl online, but I need to nail the point home that it's not just that you are wrong but you can't even interpret the information you foaming about correctly. And you're being incredibly spiteful, arrogant, racist, and judgmental over something you can't even understand.

      Yeah Trump isn't exactly ideal but 99% of the accusation against him are completely false

  • Trump being elected is a result of the anti-white/anti-white male Identity Politics strategy employed to get Obama elected for a second term in 2012 when the economy was terrible and that was the only way to do it.

    White people are simply pushing back against this new form of racism against them... and Liberals disparage them for it.

  • First and foremost, Trump is not a "white supremacist". Just because you call some one that doesn't mean they are (and in fact is a tactic of the left to slander any one who they dislike so that they can try and justify treating them like shit). Second no white supremacy is not on the rise, thirdly, the largest hate group in the US is black seperatists i. e. a black supremacist/hate group, blacks are also twice as likely as any other group (despite being only 13% of the population) to commit hate crimes. So no, no on every level.

  • I can imagine that as a consequence of Trump's presidency, white supremacy rhetoric is catapulted more into the media (in forms of criticism but also appraisal, because of e. g. Charlottesville and Trump's comments there), potentially resulting in a rise in white supremacy.

    However, whether there is a causal relationship with Trump's rhetoric, I'm not sure. Perhaps that people listen to it and radicalise elsewhere into believing in white supremacy.

    If there is a relationship, it'd just be that Trump's rhetoric affects the rate at which white supremacy grows, rather than that the effect only exists because of Trump's rhetoric.

    So basically, my answer is: maybe.
