    Surely we can agree

    Or no.



    There seem to be far too many people calling themselves patriots who are fine with what the Russians did in our election (or at least pretending they didn't) and are completely okay with whatever label you want to slap on there: White Supremacists, Nationalists, neo-Nazis, Nazis, etc.

    The Atlantic

    Trump’s tweet Saturday shows that his vision of what happened hasn’t gotten any clearer with the passage of a year. He’s still unable to name Nazis, white supremacists, and white nationalists for what they are, and unable to differentiate between those groups and those that oppose them.

    The condemnation of “all types of racism” is, on its face, a positive, but it can also be read as a coded reference to the idea that there is a anti-white racist movement seeking “genocide” of white people. White supremacists will certainly read it that way.


    The condemnation of “all … acts of violence,” apologizes for the instigators in Charlottesville under the guise of reasonability. There’s no debating that violence is bad. There’s also no question who was responsible for touching off the violence in Charlottesville: the group of white supremacists and Nazis who marched on the town, many carrying weapons, to shout racist slogans and defend statutes that commemorate a traitorous rebellion that sought to preserve the enslavement of black people. One person, Heather Heyer, died when one of the ralliers drove a car into a crowd. Others were beaten.


    By declining to name the aggressors, Trump places the ralliers on an even footing with those who came out to oppose them. “I am not putting anybody on a moral plane,” the president said a year ago, but once again he has done just that.
    Can anybody explain to me why it's so important that in America, 'white' remains the prevalent race? I don't get it. No other one race will have more of 'them.' It will be ALL people of color who combined total more than whites. Why does that freak some of you out so badly?

    The Atlantic is a fabulous magazine.

    IDK why so many Americans are so invested in a society in which no one has much value unless they are white, Christian, straight and not poor. It's insensible.

    The contortions are kind of funny though. "All men are created equal." "No, they're not!" "Okay, you're right.That Indian doctor who speaks five languages and graduated med school four years early is superior to you." {/spontaneous combustion}

    'Cause otherwise you won't grant them the mating rights, when you're ovulating. Who ever dominates the other males is the one all girls want to be impregnated by, when they're in heat. That's why the boys have to destroy the world, 'cause when you're moon sick, status is all your reptilian brain responds to. All war is about sex.

    As to the OP - yes - we should all be able to agree that Nazism/White Supremacy/White Nationalism are bad. The answer to Boop's question, I believe, is fear - fear of losing power/status. Fear of being treated as second class citizens. (Which is rather ironic.)

    Because bigoted white folk are terrified that they will be treated as they have treated others.

    Back in the old days, my brother got in trouble when he responded to a customer request with "surely". The customer, Shirley Temple, thought he was being inappropriately familiar.

    There are no days per month when women are completely controlled by their reptilian brains. Whatever the impact of evolution and genetics on female behavior, we do not choose men to reproduce with based on their perceived propensity for violence.

    Nor is racism genetically or evolutionarily directed.

    It's called racism. Republicans are knee deep in it. Now it's come out that someone has a tape of Trump saying the "N" word. It doesn't matter to the low life Trump base. The fact is that they don't care if Trump is a racist. I really do hope that this election becomes about racism.

    No one remembers what George Wallace's opinion was on taxes, just that he was a racist. I can only hope racism meets the same fate this time around.
