This is hilarious to watch:
I never decided to be any of these things. Most of them at any rate. Look at how deftly Yang swipes aside Stephanopoulos’s retarded assertion that $1,000 a month for everyone who is a US citizen is a bad idea simply because Richard Spencer supports it. 2 + 2 also = 4.
It is the mainstream media, which exists in a bubble world in New York City and Washington, DC., that continues to brand people like me as “white supremacists” and “racists.” I was actually never consulted by the SPLC or the mainstream media about being designated as a “hate group.” They can’t figure out why 70% of the country is tired of their politically correct bullshit either.
This “hate group” consists of me laying in my bed on a Sunday morning, writing on my laptop and watching George Stephanopoulos make a fool out of himself on ABC News like other leftwing journos. These people literally spent two years pushing the Russia conspiracy hoax. They did this because they couldn’t figure out why Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election.
If you define “racism” as believing in the existence of racial differences and being motivated by altruism and a sense of sympathy and duty to my own people, then I am a “racist.” Alternatively, if you define “racism” as hating other people for being of a different race, then I am not a “racist” at all. The definition of “racism” has been inflated by the media over the past several decades to the point where it has become synonymous with “vaguely ethnocentric White American.”
The term “white supremacy” has similarly been inflated and blown out of all proportion in Clown World. We haven’t actually lived under anything resembling “white supremacy” since the 1960s. Similarly, no one who is a race realist really even believes in “white supremacy” anyway, which is an antiquated term. In fact, far more people believe that White people currently have massive social and economic problems, which is why they are so excited that Andrew Yang is talking about them.
As for the “alt-right” or “Far Right,” the media similarly didn’t even have a clue about where these people were in the electorate. The “Far Right” is largely populist and nationalist. It is located in the center of the American electorate, not on the fringes. This is why Donald Trump won the 2016 election because he appealed to so many people outside of the traditional conservative-libertarian coalition with his “MAGA agenda.” He won people in the middle like … me?
The “alt-right” attracted lots of young White populist and nationalist leaning voters because it was, among other things, stridently against political correctness, neocons and their regime change wars, the free trade orthodoxy in Washington which has gutted our industrial base and the cheap labor “we are a nation of immigrants” orthodoxy in Washington. It was honest about Jewish power. It was honest about race. It offered White people a positive sense of ethnic and cultural identity which is denied to them under the current absurd system of political correctness. It was also for investment in our own country and preserving entitlements and lifting up working class and middle class Americans rather than simply the familiar MIGA agenda and tax cuts for the rich agenda of mainstream conservatism. The “alt-right” was demonized by the mainstream media for voting against Hillary.
Finally, the sentiment that draws lots of White people to White Nationalism ISN’T hating other races. It is a love of your own people, a sense of duty to your own tribe and a feeling of having a higher calling than becoming just another pathetic wage cuck on the conservative plantation. The motivation is an identification with your own tribe, taking its side and wanting to help out your folks.
Does any of that necessarily mean you HATE anyone else? Is there necessarily a contradiction between being, say, a proud White Southerner, a Christian and a human being? Of course not. It was the mainstream media who made up that way of thinking and who have pushed that narrative in order to pit different groups against each other with political correctness for their own benefit. It’s even worse than that because so many people today don’t even remember what morality was anymore.
When Andrew Yang talks about putting a financial floor of $1,000 a month under the White working class and anchoring the Freedom Dividend to technological progress, ending wage slavery and debt peonage of Millennials, wiping out student loan debt, making health care more affordable for White people, investing in our national infrastructure, avoiding destructive regime change wars, dumping the MIGA agenda, cancelling out the oligarchy which controls our politics with democracy dollars, postal banking and all these other great ideas which we have already supported for years now without talking down to us in political correctness, a large percentage of the White Nationalists are on board with that and the media can’t figure out why because it never understood us in the first place.
If the media didn’t understand the “alt-right,” what else has it gotten wrong? I don’t know … maybe the whole Russia thing which it pursued like Ahab going after Moby Dick?
Note: FWIW, the connection between the “alt-right” and Russia was always the realization that the Cold War ended back when most of us were like 11-years-old.
