We Must Dismantle the Lie of Systemic White Supremacy
As we delve into this subject of the lie that says, that we in the United States of America are living in a system of White Supremacy, let us first define what white supremacy is. According to the Oxford online dictionary white supremacy is: the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially the black race, and should therefore dominate society.
Here is another definition by the Anti-Defamation League or ADL as they call themselves:
"White supremacy is a term used to characterize various belief systems central to which are one or more of the following key tenets: 1) whites should have dominance over people of other backgrounds, especially where they may co-exist; 2) whites should live by themselves in a whites-only society; 3) white people have their own "culture" that is superior to other cultures; 4) white people are genetically superior to other people. As a full-fledged ideology, white supremacy is far more encompassing than simple racism or bigotry. Most white supremacists today further believe that the white race is in danger of extinction due to a rising "flood" of non-whites, who are controlled and manipulated by Jews, and that imminent action is need to "save" the white race."
Lastly, here is how it is defined in Wikipedia:
White supremacy or white supremacism is the belief that white people are superior to those of other races and thus should dominate them. White supremacy has roots in the now-discredited doctrine of scientific racism and often relies on pseudoscientific arguments, and was a key justification for colonialism. It underlies a spectrum of contemporary movements including neo-Confederates, neo-Nazism and Christian Identity.
Let's unpack critical race theory at this point. According to Encyclopedia Britannica: "Critical Race Theory (CRT), the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour. According to critical race theory (CRT), racial inequality emerges from the social, economic, and legal differences that white people create between "races" to maintain elite white interests in labour markets and politics, giving rise to poverty and criminality in many minority communities. The CRT movement officially organized itself in 1989, at the first annual Workshop on Critical Race Theory, though its intellectual origins go back much further, to the 1960s and '70s.
"The launch of the CRT movement marked its separation from critical legal studies (CLS), an offshoot of critical theory that examined how the law and legal institutions function to perpetuate oppression and exploitation. However, instead of drawing theories of social organization and individual behaviour from continental European thinkers such as G.W.F. Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud, as CLS and feminist jurisprudence had done, CRT was inspired by figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., W.E.B. Du Bois, Malcolm X, the Black Panthers, and Frantz Fanon. Critical race theory advanced theoretical understandings of the law, politics, and American sociology that focused on the efforts of white people (Euro-Americans) to maintain their historical advantages over people of colour.
"CRT has spread beyond the confines of legal studies to many other fields, notably women's and gender studies, education, American studies, and sociology. CRT spin-off movements formed by Asian American, Latinx, and LGBTQ scholars have also taken hold."
It's important to understand the meanings behind these phrases during this critical time in history wherein those on the far Left want us to believe that not only are we living in the kind of society illustrated above, but that we must take immediate and decisive action to correct this. Unfortunately, this begins in public schools and as I highlighted by a previous article, we are already seeing these changes begin in places like a public school in Virginia where they want to institute curriculum that teaches our children that we are a racist society as Americans. Not only do they want to institute these policies to begin instructing our children in this way, but they also want to take away the teachers' right to disagree with the contents of these programs, curtailing free speech in the process.
Are Americans white supremacists? Lets take a look at this question. I am not a white supremacist. I don't have any friends that are white supremacists. Like most of you, I have social media accounts so it is possible that some of the people that I don't know very well are white supremacists, though I haven't seen any evidence of that so far. On the other hand, there are those of the leftist ideological persuasion who think that anyone who is even slightly right of so called center is a white supremacist. Unfortunately this idea is gaining ground mostly because the mainstream media parrots the same lie over and over ad nauseum, until people who actually listen to these talking heads begin to believe it. This is media manipulation and brainwashing. Interestingly the mainstream media in the United States is very left of center and the offshoots of mainstream media, i.e., the leftist paper and online media consistently bounce off of each other until the majority of Americans can barely hear themselves think critically never mind hear another opinion on the subject.
Are there white supremacist groups in the United States? Sure there are, and I am certain they are found in other parts of the world as well. As we are most all aware. the most well known of groups of White supremacists are the Ku Klux Klan or KKK. According to History.com In the early 1990s, the Klan was estimated to have between 6,000 and 10,000 active members, mostly in the Deep South. And according to U.S. News. "Nationwide, there are still an estimated 3,000 Klan members and unaffiliated people who "identify with Klan ideology," according to the ADL. Membership, though, remains spread across dozens of groups. The largest Klans reportedly don't have more than 50 to 100 active members, and most have fewer than 25."
Call me crazy but to me that looks like a dismal failure of white supremacy in the United States. Out of a population of approximately 328.2 million people, only around 3000 are active or loosely affiliated with the KKK, the worst of the worst in terms of white supremacy. Someone quick, give me a calculator! The percentage calculates out to something like .0009% of people who are associated with the KKK. If the message of the KKK was to spread their fear and hate far and wide, that sure doesn't look like success to me.
Try as I might, I cannot find any statistics relating to the number of people, involved in other white supremacy groups, though according to the far leftist site Southern Poverty Law Center there are currently 199 hate groups. Approximately 1/4 of those are KKK members, maybe a little less. These groups show up all over the United States in their "map" but nowhere do they list, that I can find, how many people are estimated to belong to each of these groups. Perhaps that is intentional because if we knew the real numbers in terms of actual individuals the fear factor would almost certainly melt away. Do we even have a number? The Aryan Brotherhood is said to have approximately 20,000 members on the streets and in jails. Gee wiz, that still doesn't seem like a large number to me out of more than 328 million people. These are the two most widely known and recognized groups of actual white supremacists in the nation. There are a number of smaller more insignificant groups whose membership I do not know. Certainly even if every single one of those white supremacists hit the streets to vote for president Trump, it wouldn't make much difference. I find myself wondering how it is then that president Trump is associated with white supremacy in such a way that this is the way he was elected. Sorry folks I don't buy it. I don't think the numbers can add up. According to leftists, president Trump is a racist and the people who voted him into office are white supremacists, so therefore our entire country, or at least the majority of it, is racist. I challenge this as a complete falsehood with no basis in reality. By the way, did you know that there are 255 black separatist groups in America?
There is no evidence to back up this assertion by the Left that our country is mostly racist and that everyone who votes Republican or prefers Donald Trump to Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton is a racist. In fact I recall during President Obama's tenure that I was called a racist on several occasions simply because I disagreed with Obama's ideology and political behavior.
We have evolved, or should we say devolved, from the notion of white privilege to an all out assault on every single thing that makes us Americans. Just being American makes us white supremacists, unless that is, we vote democrat. Then we are still racist, just more aware of it and ready to throw up our fists and recognize that "black lives matter".
What is really at the heart of this idea that racism is rampant in America and that all Republican voters are white supremacists? What are they really trying to do by forcing children in American public schools to learn CRT all while keeping teachers from criticizing any part of it? Why do they want so badly to shove this idea in our faces so relentlessly? It is a very political move they are making. Democrats have everything to gain if they can take back the White House in this election and they have everything to gain if they can take the Senate and the House of Representatives. The only way they can convince the American people to allow them to have this much power is by convincing them that we are all a bunch of racists and that we need to be re-educated. They have to start with the children. And they have been doing it for decades already. It's just getting worse.Democrats run their campaigns on the promise that they will make life better for their constituents whom they assume are members of minority groups or those who support minority groups. But what exactly, have democrats done for minorities?
Chicago, Illinois, a city long plagued with violence, has been run almost entirely by Democrats since 1931. Some statistics from a Chicago Tribune article which I will link below give some highlights. Interestingly the Daleys ran Chicago for decades, first the senior Mayor Richard Daley and then his son for a time. During the senior Daley's tenure he made some very questionable decisions in terms of whether or not they helped the black community. Like this one, taken from the article linked below: "Mayor Richard J. Daley's plans for expressways and high-rise public housing uprooted black families from their homes in the 1950s-60s promoted segregation. Chicago Tribune columnist Mike Royko's 1971 biography of Daley, "Boss," claimed the route of the Dan Ryan Expressway was shifted to reinforce the border between Daley's native Bridgeport and primarily black neighborhoods to the east."
Detroit, Michigan, the city where cars were built was once a booming industrial city. What happened? That is a somewhat complicated question but it has had Democrat mayors since 1962.
To this question of Democrat run anything, policies of social engineering and wondering how all that works out for citizens one only has to look at the great state of California to see a statewide Democrat disaster looming before our eyes. With outrageously high taxes, requiring higher than normal wages just to rent an apartment and rampant homelessness. Tent cities dot California cities with trash, dirty needles and human excrement. I can't figure out for the life of me why Californians keep voting in their oppressors. If this is equality, I want none of it.
Democrats keep spouting the lie that it is capitalism that is causing the disparity between the rich and the poor, black and white, not just in the places mentioned above but everywhere. Yet it is mostly in the cities and states run by democrat socialism where we see the majority of homelessness, crime and disparity between classes or groups of people. This is the premise of CRT, that socialism will create equality. This is simply not bearing out in the evidence right before our eyes. CRT is based on Critical Theory a Marxist ideology. Here from Britannica is the definition of critical theory; "Critical theory, Marxist-inspired movement in social and political philosophy originally associated with the work of the Frankfurt School. Drawing particularly on the thought of Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud, critical theorists maintain that a primary goal of philosophy is to understand and to help overcome the social structures through which people are dominated and oppressed. Believing that science, like other forms of knowledge, has been used as an instrument of oppression, they caution against a blind faith in scientific progress, arguing that scientific knowledge must not be pursued as an end in itself without reference to the goal of human emancipation. Since the 1970s, critical theory has been immensely influential in the study of history, law, literature, and the social sciences."
If Americans are not white supremacists then who are we? What is our national identity? Do we need to define our national identity and if so is that a bad thing? Defining ourselves in this way often leads to Leftist accusations of nationalism etc. Even considering oneself a patriot can get you labeled as a nationalist. The word "nationalist" has become closely associated with the so called "white nationalists", which is really just another way of saying that patriotic Americans who love their country are white supremacists. This is just a bald-faced lie with no basis in real fact. So who are Americans? What do we believe and how do we see ourselves collectively? Lets explore that.
At the end of the day I cannot find any evidence that Americans are white supremacists nor for the need for Critical Race Theory training in our schools or otherwise. What I do find interesting is that the Democrat party have always been the party of racism and hate. Supposedly a switch occurred within the last 40 years or so, but in reality that is false. The only thing that really happened is that the Democrats realized they were beaten by the Republicans since it was the Republicans who brought about all of the civil rights changes that occurred in the early part of the twentieth century while they were fought tooth and nail by Democrats. Well as the old saying goes, if you can't beat them join them. But they didn't join the Republicans. They just began to deny their affiliation with slavery, racial hatred and lynchings. Did you know that it was Democrats who instituted lynchings on blacks?
I came across a movie of sorts, a documentary as it were, by Dinesh D'Souza, called Hillary's America. I challenge you to watch it. Take the one hour and 45 minutes or so out of your life to watch it. Then go ahead do the research yourself if you don't believe the contents. I will link that here below. Even if you have already seen it, give it another look. Happy viewing!

This commment is unpublished.· 11 months agoThe term 'white privilege' has such a racist dogma attached to it currently, that even saying it causes some to cower in shame. Odd how that term did not even exist 20 or so years ago. As if it was made up for political reasons as pointed out above. AND THAT is quite an issue. So much hinges on 'what we allow' ourselves to learn and accept and by extension, 'what we allow' our children to learn and accept. I reject this idea of 'white privilege' and instead embrace a more full whole concept of human equality not based on anything but the fact that as humans, we are all given equal access to what our world has to give us.Reading this has helped me sort out the details about this ... to me... hate term 'white supremacy' and the whole concept behind it. Very insightful. Thank you.
