There is no such thing as #WesternCivilization

The values of liberty, tolerance and rational inquiry are not the birthright of a single culture. In fact, the very notion of something called ‘western culture’ is a modern invention

The most expeditious way to defend what some refer to as "#WesternCivilization" and lose is to make it for whites only.

It’s not for white people only.

That’s a demonic lie.

White Nationalist like to employ “Western civilization” as a kind of dog-whistle code for white nationalist and their allies. When regular folk hear it, it means one thing. But, when they use it, it conveys a racial thing.

It's how they recruit young, white, naive conservatives.
But, here’s what they won’t tell you: Few know that the term they use "Western civilization,” is an [American] invention - not European!
