I’ve read the same, that they were not established as a white supremacist organization (though they are being taken over from within), but they do have them within their ranks. Also, they encourage the same sort of violence that people here claim to denounce.
In their own words, here’s who they are. Right-wing, Trump-supporting violent nationalists.
BTW, it’s worth mentioning that Trump’s hand-picked FBI director testified that “racially motivated violent extremists have been responsible for the most lethal activity in the US”.
I had no idea who this guy was. You know, in our lifetimes, it is POSITIVE that we are going to run into hateful people whether they be white supremacists, BLMs, Antifas, Nancy Pilosi, and so on. My grandfather told me once when I was still a child and I was crying because I was bulled by some boy in my classroom: you have to pretend you’re a duck. And every time this boy tries to hurt you, you just let it roll off your back. Then, one day when you feel better, kick him in the gonads (his word was not gonads). I did and it felt great and that silly boy never bothered me again.
Most white racists in my experience have been devout DEMOCRATS and history bears this out. ALL slave owners were racist Democrats. White racist Democrats opposed the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution. The MOST racist President in our entire history was Woodrow Wilson–a white racist Democrat. The KKK was (and is) populated almost exclusively by white racist Democrats and BLM and Antifa are populated primarily by white racist Democrats. The people who opposed passage of, and filibustered passage of, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965 were mostly white racist Democrats.
Today’s White Nationalists and White Supremacists support Trump.
Gregory Hood, a writer who penned an essay in support of Trump for the white nationalist blog Radix. Hood wrote:
Trump is worth supporting. He is worth supporting because we need a troll. We need someone who can expose the system that rules us as the malevolent and worthless entity it is. We need someone who can break open public debate. We need someone who can expose and heighten the contradictions within the system. And we need someone who can call out the press, the politicians, and the pseudo-intellectuals as the empty shells they are.
Brad Griffin, founder of the Occidental Dissent, a website that describes itself as “Pro-White, Pro-South, Pro-Indepdence.” On Trump, Griffin recently wrote:
Donald Trump isn’t a conservative or a racialist by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a tornado that can inflict a lot of damage upon the two-party system.
Jared Taylor, considered one of the leading intellectual voices of the white nationalist movement, praised Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants in a video posted on the website of his American Renaissance journal:
Americans, real Americans have been dreaming of a candidate who says the obvious, that illegal immigrants from Mexico are a low-rent bunch that includes rapists and murders.
Richard Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank, called Trump’s criticism of Senator John McCain’s war heroism “revelatory:”
Trump is ‘divisive’ in that he forces his opponents and rivals to take sides. In this case, he demonstrated that the other GOP candidates are interchangeable cowards and conformists. As an added bonus, he associated them all with an unpopular failed presidential candidate and immigration enthusiast.
The White Genocide Project, a group whose mission is to raise awareness of the “genocide” of the white race, launched a White House peition demanding President Barack Obama to honor Trump for “opposing white genocide.” The petition only gathered 243 signatures and was closed for not reaching the signature requirements.
The Daily Stormer, a Neo-Nazi news and commentary website, endorsed Trump for president, writing:
He is certainly going to be a positive influence on the Republican debates, as the modern Fox News Republican has basically accepted the idea that there is no going back from mass immigration, and Trump is willing to say what most Americans think: it’s time to deport these people. He is also willing to call them out as criminal rapists, murderers and drug dealers.
So, either all of these Democrats are confused about the party Trump belongs too, or racists support Trump who belongs to the Republican party.
And look, I get it, they could simply be folks who support a particular policy, in this case the reduction of immigration which (OF COURSE) in itself doesn’t make one a racist. However, Trump has done little (I didn’t say nothing) to separate himself from these people and groups.
Simple, if there is an indecent, like Charlottesville where people chant things like “Jews will not replace us”, get out in front of that and make a statement as soon as possible (don’t wait 2 days) and denounce in no uncertain terms that you don’t support these ideas.
Here is an example
And look, I’m not saying the President has never denounced racism and neo Nazism or white supremacy, it’s that he does it in such a way to cast just enough doubt that he emboldens these groups into believing he supports them. And look, you don’t need to take my word for it, just look at the writings of the groups in question. They take his silence and mixed messages (as in the debate) as support. They believe that anything he says later denouncing them is necessary (but just political) and not real. Trump leaves that door open when he is unclear.
Here is an example
Certainly he knows who the KKK is (despite his saying he doesn’t know who they are), his father was a member for god snakes. He knows who David duke is, that’s a bold faced lie. There is audio where he uses David Duke by name (before this interview) and confusingly he wouldn’t run on the reform party ticket because Duke was a member, so he does know who he is. So he’s either suffering dementia or he’s lying, which is it?
BTW, David Duke is a registered Republican, not Democrat. So unless you don’t think he’s a racist, I’m not sure what you mean when you say that the real racists are Dems.
That’s actually a very interesting quote. One, this “Pro-White” guy said President Trump is not “a racialist by any stretch of the imagination”. Sounds like he disagrees with you. The president doesn’t measure up to his standards of racism.
Second, he said he “isn’t a conservative”. That’s not relevant to this issue. But I find it interesting. As far as I’m aware, the president has never called himself a conservative. But I think he has done about all the things we could ask of a conservative president except balance the budget and show fiscal constraint. Though Congress has made that impossible. I can’t even blame it all on the Democrats. But I wonder why Griffin thinks he’s not conservative.
Pack of lies! There is no proof that President Trump’s father was EVER a member of the KKK, David Duke once ran as a Republican in Louisiana, was soundly rejected and changed his registration BACK to Democrat where it remains today. Other than David Duke, do YOU know anyone who’s a member of the Klan? I certainly don’t…not since Democrat Senator Byrd died anyway. I’ve NEVER known of an actual Republican who was.
Nonsense. Racists have ALWAYS been Democrats and Democrats have always been racists…and still ARE. They’ve just changed their tactics since the 1960s. Instead of keeping blacks in chains, they keep them chained to government-issued “freebies.”
Since Brad declared himself to be “Pro-White”, I would guess he did not vote for Obama. And since Biden served under a black man and is very weak, he probably won’t vote for him either.
I think everyone should vote for President Trump, regardless of racial views. Does everything have to be about race?
The Democrat party is the historic home of racism (slavery, KKK, segregation, initially against civil rights) and today it’s the party that turns every discussion about everything to race. They’re excited about race. They insist on categorizing and recording everyone by race. They’re constantly making accusations about race. So, yeah. If any party is the party of racism, it’s definitely the Democrat Party, regardless of how any one person votes.
