Today a friend and I were texting about white supremacy.  He brought it up by saying he can't believe how many of our friends are talking about the dangers of white supremacy.

At one point in the conversation he said this:

"To me the race issue, gun control, and several other topics have kind of melded into one issue.  Somehow the left has just gotten to hate western civilization and is out to destroy it"

You are not tarnishing "nationalism" with your overreach and your histrionics.  You are polishing white nationalism.

The question isn't whether or not we're descended from monkeys.  The question is, when are we going to stop descending?

Your friend is not alone in his observation.  Yhe Hopey/Changey crowd Believe that in order to rebuild our nation in their image, they must first destroy it.  Over eight long years of Obama, they came pretty damn close and if Hillary had won she would have finished the job.  hey are no "all in" and not even attempting to conceal what they have been doing all along.

And then there are always the rank and file 'useful idiots' who enable the monsters to eventually come to power

Racism is either over stated or in its reverse form huh?

The picked on majority sure has it rough in America.

Here's a thought, stop saying and doing things that your countrymen perceive as racist. Problem solved. No, that won't work 'cause then you can't be the victim and in today's culture everyone's a victim.
  

If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence.

Oh noes! Virtue Signaling!!

That's the most evilest thing I can imagine.

It's only the whining minority that share your view (along with nations around the world who are either competitors or our enemies).

This move in the past couple years to conflate all things "patriotic" with nationalism ... and then with "white nationalism" ... is problematic.

The Democrats and activists on the left have seized on it as a means of bullying their way into regaining political power.  And yes I do mean that literally how I typed it.

This push to call all things white nationalism isn't tarnishing nationalism.  It's polishing and giving a fresh coat of lacquer to white nationalism.

That doesn't mean there's more white nationalists.  It means there's more people that people on the left are *calling* white nationalists.

Let me show you how that works for those who see racism under every rock, and hatred behind every tree. 

(An aside: I have a theory on why that is Because they subscribe to CNN, the NY Times, NPR and the Washington Post on facebook and are being buried under a daily onslaught of "Remember Emmett Till" and "100 africans were lynched" and "This woman was lynched and burned alive" stories .... they're literally still living in the world of 1911.  There are days when I get nothing BUT "Remember racism!" in my facebook feed.  Because I subscribe to CNN, the NY Times, NPR and the Washington Post on facebook.)

Perspective:

My 65 year old uncle is an ornery son of a bitch.  Anti gay.

NAZI!  /clutch pearls.

But 40 years ago ... he was a completely normal 25 year old.

Around 30 years ago he started being called a jerk.  When he was 35.

Around 20 years ago he started being called intolerant.

Around 10 years ago he started being called a bigot.

Today he's being called a nazi.  Or a white nationalist.  Or a Trump supporter.  Or a Republican.  It's all the same thing amirite? haha!!1!

He's not a white nationalist.  He considers himself a "patriot."  (Remember I put that in quotes at the beginning?) 

He's not going to change from being that completely normal dude he was at 25 years old.  That's not a thing that actually happens here in the real world.  But keep pushing and he'll start accepting and embracing the white nationalist label.

And then white nationalism really will be on the rise.

Hate is a drug easily ten times stronger than love.  It's a joke that we even pretend they're opposites.  It takes zero effort to hate.  It's the default human condition when we turn off and just let the primal instincts take over.  Love takes work.  It takes effort.  How the hell could they possibly be opposites?  But we've conditioned ourselves with 50 years of Beatles songs to think it's the default human position.

And that's where Trump has you.  He wasn't a Beatles fan.

I just smoked my first legal joint in my life as a new citizen in California.  If that made no sense ... blame strawberry sherbet.  But I'll be convinced it's because you don't want it to.

In 2020, when President Trump is reelected and we retake the House and gain a fillabuster proof majority in the Senate, then you can blame President Trump and the Republicans for this continuing mess in Washington.

“I can’t believe people call me out on my racist words and actions. UNFAIR!”.  Sad
