And everyone in media tried to play the even handed game. And before I get the usual suspects chiming in.... No, the over the top "Bush is Hitler" stuff is not the same thing.


"Oh, this is NOT about race." "This is about economic populism in the wake of the recession." No. It was about race. It's about a thick slice of the American public willing to swallow any lie, believe any unfounded notion, revel in victimhood while telling actual victims to shut up about their plight, all this.... rather than own up to the history of the country and the facts of TODAY. And there are all the ways big and little that contribute to it. The media not wanting to call a spade a spade being one of them. And so here we are... Trump will go away one way or another but the voters that put him there and the attitudes they have are going to be with us for a long time and have been here being fed cynical propaganda for decades. They are the Wallace/Nixon voter, the Reagan voter, the Gingrich revolution voter of the 90's, the Tea Party member, the Trump Voter of today. Not every person that cast their vote is an out and out white supremacist nor even an unthinking one. But each and every one of those candidates and groups were making appeals based on paranoid and unearned racial animus against non-white citizens to one degree or another, both those born here and those of more recent vintage.

What would be there anyway has been over the years stirred up to a boiling pitch again and again to the point of no return for more of our fellow citizens than we are as a whole, willing to admit. Swimming in guns and faced by choice with a tidal wave of reactionary media that keeps telling them the world for Caucasians is coming to an end we have been in a period of White Supremacist terrorism, and THAT IS WHAT IT IS, not seen in this country in a long time. What we are living with now is racially based violence that is motivated by politics. If that's not terrorism, I don't know what is. That there is so much inchoate about the perpetrators is irrelevant. The common tie is the resentment and anger at non-Whites, women in general and anyone perceived to be an "enemy" of their views on what in their minds is the rightful and default power structure of the country. A "White" power structure, which is in quotations because this mind set is found even among those who should know that they aren't really considered white by the hardcore racists and yet they have imbibed this unthinking rejection of modernity and pluralism to the point that they want in on some of that supremacist action.

And truly the only ones who can combat it are Whites. And this isn't, as some in their paranoid minds suspect, an effort at emasculation or some other nonsense they have been fed. Are you of English stock, be proud of English heritage. Italian? Know and celebrate your Italian roots. Irish? Educate your children about Ireland and the story of the Irish in America. No one is actually asking you not to. But just know that the little controversies that pop up so regularly now a days, like indeed the issue with say commercials for cereal with mixed raced children and families or the "outrage" at a shaving ad that somehow was interpreted as an attack on White maleness which had nothing said that was any more controversial than the themes that one gets from your average Captain America movie... This shows a problem, and don't fool yourselves, because the same resentments and weird paranoia that fuels the backlash against milquetoast COMMERCIALS as some nefarious plot against white men is the same that fuels these mass shooters today and other supremacist terrorists of the past, from the Oklahoma City bombers to the KKK.

If you are a White man that takes pride in honesty, truth, responsibility, strength of character and a belief in the ideals of a pluralistic society and it's, indeed, progressive march from the swamp of the history of human barbarity to the goal of a better and more peaceful and tolerant way of life for you today and your children tomorrow... This is on you. It's on you to either make a stand against this cancer in America among yourselves or recognizing your own weakness to this free floating paranoid resentment and fear battle in yourself to come to grips with how this mindset which is leading to so much hate and issues in society and yes, violence... It's simply not compatible with the ideals and morals you strive for. It's not compatible with the stories you tell yourself about who you are. It's not compatible with living in the modern world. And its not compatible with the best of our American traditions.
I hope you arent implying that the illegal immigration from latin america problem is wholly in the minds of paranoid white people.

That "progressive march" is a fantasy. In the real world, pluralism of the sort you're talking about causes the human race to regress. Progress is impossible when the people creating the progress are swamped by people who destroy what the former have created. And that's what immigration and other forms of forced integration do.

Of course, it's about race, because people like you made it about race. Whites are under attack and, if current policies do not change, are in the process of being wiped off the face of the earth. Of course, "woke" whites are going to realize that the racial aspect of things is salient and that racial self-defense is in order.

still haven't figured out why a white supremacist would spring black people from jail or be pro Israel.

Last week liberals were simultaneously bashing Trump for speaking up for black rapper A$AP Rocky while calling Trump a racist.

either they can't see their own contradictions or they think we can't see them.

I think he is. It's just my opinion. It's not the kind of thing one can prove.

What is your opinion?
Honestly, I think it's an accusation that should have to be thoroughly proven or completely retracted. Otherwise, what's a white supremacist? If my aunt is annoying me, should I just chalk it up to white supremacy and scream? Do you suppose screaming the accusation in her face will fix anything? Will constantly telling my wife and kids, "Auntie Sarah is a Nazi!" with no basis in facts or evidence help to improve things in the family?

There's a lot of name-calling going around these days and it's not useful. I have yet to see any evidence that Donald Trump believes that white people are inherently superior. I'd have to call BS on anyone accusing him of being a white supremacist. Still, it's one of those things. Repeat the same lie a million times and people will start to believe it.

I could believe he is a Trump supremacist, with too much ego to care about race.

This is a good poll. Look at the list of yes votes if you want to know who the unhinged extremists are on C-D.

Because it's a free country and I can respond however I like as long as I follow the forum's rules?

In case you really didn't know, then try follow the dialogue. I was Just pointing out the double standards here. Bottom line, the lefties focus on "race" all the time, as if "race relationship" is the matter of national security. let's just admit it already, okay? sheesh.
It seemed more like an attempt to ignore/minimize/deflect from someone's example of Trump's questionable focus on a judge's race, rather than an attempt to point out the double standards.

Politicians are servant to the pubic, they are not superior to any of us. Only an idiot would think they are on some kind of moral high horse all the time.
Thank you so much for reminding everyone here that Trump serves us, the public, and not the other way around. I see it all the time here, the idol worshipping of Trump by his supporters as if he can do no wrong. It's interesting at times to witness how his supporters readily jump to his defense, rightly or wrongly, no matter the issue. His actions are justified somehow and if they can't, well, blame the other guys: "it's the leftists who focus on race all the time as if it's a matter of national security". But I am glad to see that you do not subscribe to the notion that politicians like Trump are infallible creatures whose honor must be defended at all times.

I have been much chagrined that Democratic presidential hopefuls have lined up to label Trump as a white supremacist/racist with zero evidence. Warren, Buttigieg, Bernie, Biden, and Beto are all on the list. The false cry of 'raaaacism' is a racist tactic in itself, as any intelligent person by now understands.

I doubt that I will even vote Dem this time around. I won't vote for a party full of racists. Maybe I'll write in Tiny Jag.
