Colorblind Racism

“If race disappears as a category of official division, as it has in most of the world, this will facilitate the emergence of a plural racial order where the groups exist in practice but are not official recognized - and anyone ....

... and anyone trying to address racial division is likely to be chided for racializing the population.”

— Professor Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Racism without Racists: #ColorBlindRacism

The ironic and inevitable consequence: Racial and Ethnic Violence. Those dissimilar identities that predate Nationalism will not bend a knee. They will refuse to be nationalized, de-negrofied, Putinized.

They will resist.

#WhiteNationalism is an abomination.

It was a movement so BARBARIC and DISSIMILAR in world history, that men had to find a new word to describe its satanic conduct.

The word that was settled upon' #Genocide

The #ArmenianGenocide started in 1915

The Holocaust 1941 and 1945.

But, before those two genocides trsanspired, one happened in Africa: "It took place between 1904 and 1908"

What are you without your Confederate statues?

Are you any good? Are you still strong? Smart? Do you still like yourself?... If you can only be tall because someone’s on their knees, then you have a serious problem.”

“If you have a Black church, why can't I have a White church?”

The Equalitarian Racist Are The Worst Type of Racist.
A clever devil if ever there was one!
"While I agree with this in principle, and I genuinely hope we get beyond this, I also understand how Christendom came to have a "black church." Its inception is tied intimately to the "white church," and by that, I mean "whites only" church. Essentially the black believers said,

Why is #WhiteNationalism equated with #WhiteSupremacy & Nazism?

America's founding fathers were the original White Nationalists, & for good reason. They knew that forging a nation from different European peoples of the same - White - race would be difficult enough.
And that trying to include other races (i.e. Native & Black Americans) would be impossible. This is why the 1790 Nationalisation Act restricted citizenship to Whites.

And so it has proven! America never did become a genuine nation, but just a bigger, more powerful, clone of GB.
America's #FoundingMistake was to equate state & nation.

Native & African Americas should have been helped to form nations of their own, without forced segregation. Different races tend to segregate naturally of own accord.

America was founded on #WhiteIdentity & Nationalism, the founding fathers being the original #WhiteNationalists, who restricted American citizenship to Whites, i.e. to fellow Europeans. So WHY is #WhiteNationalism now demonised?!
It is because America, like the UK, is an Orwellian construct, based on lies, deceit & a regime of rewards & intimidation.

The founders knew it would be difficult enough forging a nation from different European peoples of the same race, without trying to include other races.
And so it has proven. America never did became a genuine nation, as its founders had hoped it would, but just a bigger, more powerful, mercenary patron state, deceitfully posing as a nation, like Great Britain, from which it had won its independence.

Slouching Towards White Nationalism

In 1902, a black minister warned the #RepublicanParty about Its slide towards #whitenationalism! He notes the global impact that #whitesupremacy in the party was having on those in #PuertoRico 🇵🇷 & #Philippines 🇵🇭.

#blackconservatives
Presbyterian Minister, Rev. Francis Grimke, on the Republican Party (speech delivered on Oct 12, 1902):

1/ “A party with such men, as it had in it years ago, may well be called, "The Grand Old Party." I take the term, grand, to apply to the old party— ...
2/ ... the party as it used to be, not to the party as it is today, with its petty little programme of a White Republican Party in the South; the elimination of Negro office-holders in the South, out of deference to white southern sentiment; white supremacy in the Philippines ...

The more I think about these quotes from #SamHarris the more they shock & disturb me.

If I were a psychotherapist & Sam my patient, I would conclude that he was suffering from a serious psychosis, which indeed, I believe he is. Only he shares it will many others.
My diagnosis is trans-generational trauma at the hands of the Nazis, who belonged to the same, White, European race as he does.

This trauma has alienated him & many other Ashkenazi Jews from their own race.

If it only affected Sam it would just be his own, personal issue.
If it only affected Jews, it would just be a Jewish issue.

The reality, however, is that it profoundly affects all the societies in which Ashkenazi Jews live, which amounts to western civilisation at large, where, owning to this trauma, Whites will soon become a racial minority.

Former FBI @RepBrianFitz is a #TrumpEnabler & part of the "militant wing of the Republican Party" who attracted #ProudBoys to rally outside his #PA01 office last Dec.

He gifted #WhiteNationalists with an official letter to BillBarr/DoJ in 2019 demanding a crackdown on antifa.
Top Trump/@RepBrianFitz donor 💰 Jim Worthington & Dean Malik, along with Proud Boy Zach (+ other unnamed Proud Boys) were all together at the proTrump counter-protest to impeachment outside Fitzpatrick's #PA01 office, Dec 2019.

Sexual attraction is something most of us are familiar with & have learned to live with in a civilised fashion.

But what about #RacialAttraction?

Attraction to one's own race is deemed racist for Whites. But why shouldn't we also learn to live with it in a civilised fashion?
State & academic authority demonises racial attraction between Whites, because it is the natural basis of national identity, which #BigBrother, who deceitfully poses as our nation himself, fears more than anything else.
It is Big Brother's fear of #WhiteIdentity & #WhiteNationalism which causes him to incite fear & hatred of them in his minions.

It is up to White Nationalists to show that such fear & hatred is unwarranted, unless, of course, you want BB to remain in control of society.

In Defence of #WhiteNationalism

White Nationalism undermines the nation state, which is why #BigBrother demonises it as #WhiteSupremacy & deceitfully seeks to associate it with Nazism.

The Nazis were NOT White Nationalists! Those they hated & killed most were fellow Whites.
For me, #WhiteNationalism = #WhiteIdentity.

Just as Blacks tend to identify with fellow Blacks, I'm inclined to identify with fellow Whites.

I say "tend" & "inclined", because it is not absolute. But it is still a very important form of IDENTITY.
No one demonises Black identity, so why is White identity demonised?

Big Brother fears White identity, because it has the potential to become the majority identity & to challenge his own deceitful claim to nationhood.

What power do we have in preventing the next white nationalist #terrorist attack? I draw from our brain scan studies of #jihadist supporters to give some insights in this @nytopinion vid. It means changing the way we talk in the aftermath of an attack. 1/

#BREAKING @splcenter drops another bombshell report on Stephen Miller and his *extensive* connections with white nationalist hate group @CIS_org.

Why is this so important? Of course Stephen Miller is a white nationalist, right?

splcenter.org/hatewatch/2019…
Ramped up #ICERaids.
#TPS loss.
#DACA revocation.
#RemainInMexico protocols.
The #MuslimBan
#PublicCharge.

Miller is often credited as architect of 45's immigration policies, but these policies didn't just appear in his mind overnight. He had lots of help, going back a long way.
The Center for Immigration Studies was founded by white nationalist/eugenicist John Tanton. If you follow me, you know I've been seeking to unseal the private #TantonPapers for 3 years.

Very important news.

The @colcomfdn is THE money behind the entire anti-immigrant movement. No one has given more to these white nationalists. No one.

Without Colcom, there would be no anti-immigrant movement to speak of.
@colcomfdn The bombshell @NYTimes report from 8/14 traced the dark ideology of Colcom's founder, Cordelia Scaife May, who bankrolled the efforts of white nationalist John Tanton (whose papers I am suing to unseal) in the late 1970's.

Many of Colcom's grantees are part of the #TantonNetwork of hate groups.

Colcom funds hate, and Tiedemann Advisors did the right thing by dropping them.

I'm not going to mince words: The Dem leadership is on track to botch 2020 and re-elect Trump.

Nearly 2 dozen presidential candidates, instead of recruiting strong senate challengers.

DCCC blacklisting progressives.

#Impeachment turned into a farce of dithering and delay.
Trump's favorables are rising and he's raising boatloads of money.

#Nadler and #Pelosi are still groping around for "evidence" to support #impeachment while Trump and Miller and Pence and McConnell promote #WhiteNationalism.

All the while, immigrant children are abused...
Trump has lied TWELVE THOUSAND TIMES.

He has disgraced his office. He has engaged in #StochasticTerrorism against people of color. He has called the media "enemies of the people."

His presidency is an affront to human dignity. But Dem leaders can't find the spine to oppose him.

1/ A photographic look at the Trump visit to University Medical Center in #ElPaso. He visited there after the 7th worst #massshooting in US history. Targeting #Latinos, the attack killed at least 22 and injured 26. Pictures from Dayton included.
2/ Trump is vilified by many in El Paso for his border war, and his venom and prejudice appears to have helped inspire a white nationalist to target Latinos and commit mass murder. He planned to visit hospitalized survivors, but none would meet with him. So, what to do?
3/ What Trump is accomplished at is flipping the script. In a remarkable cache of 40 pictures on its Flickr feed, the @WhiteHouse bombarded the media and social media with exclusive images of his #ElPaso visit after excluding the press from covering it.

#WhiteNationalism has become brazen and open in this administration.

But it persists with the people behind the scenes, building a wall more effective than any physical one, clothing racism not in a white Klan robe but in a black judicial one.

I'm calling for a hearing.
To people like me who punish themselves by reading the writings of racists and white nationalists, it's a very familiar refrain.

Invasion
Illegal
Criminals
Aliens
Losing our identity
Them

Why else would cult classics like #CampoftheSaints still enjoy popularity?
It lays out the racial fear raw and unvarnished. Great to rally people to your cause, and maybe get them to light Tiki torches or shoot up a Wal-Mart on the border.

But it doesn't make true exclusionary policy.

Still seeing a lot of folks referring to the recent #massshootings as terrorist attacks. I know it's tempting to turn the messaging of the state back on itself, but our Muslim comrades have instructed us again and again not to do this #ElPasoShooting #WhiteNationalism
"Terrorist" is an inherently racist, and specifically anti-Arab and anti-Muslim, construct invented for the targeting and criminalization of specific communities. #ElPasoShooting #WhiteNationalism
Trying to label #WhiteNationalism as a form of terrorism may feel like poetic justice, but it does more to reinforce that category than to undo it, which is what our goal needs to be #ElPasoShooting
