New York Times: Fear Of White People Losing Out Permeate Capitol Rioters Towns

This is a bullshit study.

New York Times:

“When the political scientist Robert Pape began studying the issues that motivated the 380 or so people arrested in connection with the attack against the Capitol on Jan. 6, he expected to find that the rioters were driven to violence by the lingering effects of the 2008 Great Recession.

But instead he found something very different: Most of the people who took part in the assault came from places, his polling and demographic data showed, that were awash in fears that the rights of minorities and immigrants were crowding out the rights of white people in American politics and culture.

If Mr. Pape’s initial conclusions — published on Tuesday in The Washington Post — hold true, they would suggest that the Capitol attack has historical echoes reaching back to before the Civil War, he said in an interview over the weekend. In the shorter term, he added, the study would appear to connect Jan. 6 not only to the once-fringe right-wing theory called the Great Replacement, which holds that minorities and immigrants are seeking to take over the country, but also to events like the far-right rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017 where crowds of white men marched with torches chanting, “Jews will not replace us!”

“If you look back in history, there has always been a series of far-right extremist movements responding to new waves of immigration to the United States or to movements for civil rights by minority groups,” Mr. Pape said. “You see a common pattern in the Capitol insurrectionists. They are mainly middle-class to upper-middle-class whites who are worried that, as social changes occur around them, they will see a decline in their status in the future.” …”

How do I know it is bullshit?

Have you seen who was arrested over the Capitol Siege? The best example of a “white supremacist” who they could come up with was Baked Alaska who ran into the building to chase content for his livestream. The overwhelming majority of the people who were arrested at the Capitol Siege were ordinary Trump voters who were in Washington to attend the Stop the Steal rally.

When the corporate media talks about the “white supremacists” and “far right extremists” who stormed the Capitol, they are talking about the Proud Boys, the Oathkeepers and Patriot groups. Even these people were only like 10% of the people who were arrested at the Capitol Siege. These people are also multiracial civic nationalist groups. It was those people, the conspiracy theory crowd and ordinary Trumpers who were there. The people who stormed the Capitol were not White Nationalists.

If anything is true, the most striking thing about who was arrested at the Capitol Siege is the ABSENCE of actual White Nationalists. Yes, the people who have the strongest views and highest level of concern about White demographic decline … were not in Washington, DC on January 6th. The only group which had a real presence there was Nick Fuentes and the Groypers and as far as I am aware only two or three of them were arrested along with Baked Alaska. They make up maybe 1% of the arrests over this.

Note: Joy Reid tried to pin the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots in Minneapolis and Portland on White Nationalists too. In reality, White Nationalists were notably absent from the riots last summer. The vast majority of White Nationalists learned to avoid volatile public events after Charlottesville.

  1. The Capitol Protestors were Liberal Democrats in their world view.

    The New York Times…there is Raytheon $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ there…Don’t believe me?…..Just google the photo of that red-haired mulato in sitting on her Royal Chair and look to the left corner:It says Raytheon……

    If the Democratic Party could go back to 1945 right after the war ended…..The Democratic Party would have exterminated the returning White WW2 Vets for they had views on immigration identical to White Nationalists and therefore they were RACISTS and therefore they were all HITLERS and therefore they deserved to be EXTERMINATED!!!!!!

    The Democratic Party 2021=THE CRUSH WHITEY’s FUCKING SKULL IN PARTY!!!!!!

    When you call Native White Working Class Folks RACISTS!!!!…You are then HITLER!!!!!…But if the term RACIST!!!! has any meaning at all…it would mean that they are no less RACIST!!! than the HAN PEOPLE of China…and the HAN PEOPLE in America….

    So the obvious conclusion to draw is that the NYT-DEMOCRATIC PARTY hates our RACE and wants us as Jeff Bezos AMAZON WAREHOUSE Chattel Slaves…or…quit literally dead……What other conclusion can one draw?

    The Civil War never should have been fought…Blacks just weren’t worth it……

  2. @ there is no party or ideology that will unite us, it will be a personality, who has traits that appeal to all factions in one way or another, example, ” napoleon”, post revolutionary france was chaos beyond belief, the monarchy was gone, done away with, we have a leader, somewhere waiting to take his mantle, till that happens, we need to get it together and be relevant and ready , for when this day comes.

  3. Meanwhile in other news

    Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.

    Comments are also worth reading. Good example why conservatism does not work Conservatives claim that Nazis, terrorists and criminals must be harshly treated and comment section is happy that now they themselves are Nazis terrorists and criminals.

    Harsh reality for people who believed holy hoax , evil Nazis. and good war.

  4. Meanwhile BLM can boast about burning and setting buildings on fire if the cop is not put in jail. The FBI is too busy looking into “White” supremacy than to go after actual threats from blacks.

  5. Any White with a shred of sense SHOULD fear marginalization. There is evidence throughout history and all over the world that proves rule by POC will result in nothing but poverty, chaos, and death.

  6. Capitol riot defendant alleges beating by jail guards

    A man accused in the Jan. 6 unrest was left partially blind and moved to another facility, lawyers say.
    Sandlin said guards tackled “to the ground” one high-profile prisoner, Richard Barnett, 60, who was photographed with his boot up on a desk in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. Sandlin said one of the guards declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”
