Let me start out by saying that I don’t believe any race is superior to any other. We are all selfish assholes looking out for our own self interest … no matter what color your skin is. With that being said … what I’m about to say is probably going to piss off some people and have other people screaming …
If you can’t entertain a different point of view for a moment or are easily triggered … do me a favor and just leave now and go watch some cat videos.
If you’re still with me, here we go …
I know this goes against everything that you hear on the news and it will be hard for you to believe because it goes against the ideology you’ve blindly bought into … but it’s true. The real reason for the rise of white nationalism has nothing to do with Trump and has everything to do with the hypocrisy of the media. I’m not talking about the “Fake News” bullshit that Trump whines about like a broken record every time he hears something he doesn’t agree with … I’m talking about an agenda the media is pushing and the blatant hypocrisy that no one is allowed to address or they get shouted down as a racist. Don’t believe me? Hear me out!
White supremacist groups existed when Obama was elected president, correct!? You’d think they would have lost their shit and came out of the woodwork when a BLACK president was elected!? That is a white supremacists nightmare! But I don’t remember hearing much about white supremacists during that time? They grumbled about the election results but pretty much kept to themselves. When they complained about having a president that was black they were told by the media that our country is moving into a new era and their ideas about race were outdated and have no place in the dialogue of this country.
Then comes the Black Lives Matter movement and the media embraces it and makes it a top story every night on the evening news, endorsing it … promoting it … praising it. Repeating how much Black Lives Matter and how ALL white people are to blame for the problems black people face. They make a point to highlight and keep repeating any story where a white officer shoots a black man and label him guilty without even hearing the facts. Every news story suddenly is about race.
So …. the media lambasted white supremacists for their views about race but now support that view when it comes to black people.
What the fuck did you think was going to happen!?
Everything the media covers now is about black people and how ALL white people are racist. THAT is why you see white nationalism coming to the surface in the form of groups like the Proud Boys. People don’t like being told they are something they are not.
At first, people understood what the protests were about and didn’t have a problem with them. Any rational person could see what happened to George Floyd was wrong and the protests were a natural reaction to the injustice seen on the video … but it quickly turned into something else.
With the unwavering support of the media and weak politicians who are terrified of being …
“on the wrong side of history”
… the Black Lives Matter movement demanded they be allowed to paint their message on a public street. If they were not granted this demand they would scream that the city was racist and it’s proof of the systemic racism in our culture. Get the fuck outta here! So, with no politician having the guts to tell them “No. This is a public street.” … they painted the words BLACK LIVES MATTER in huge letters large enough to see from outer space.
How is this not racist!? Can you imagine a street with the words White Lives Matter painted on it? Holy Fucking Shit! Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson would trip over each other trying to get there first to denounce it and scream racism! Yet … the street painted in Hollywood somehow is not racist. When shit like this happens … some white people start to get upset at the blatant hypocrisy.
Some people started to question the motives of the movement since it was supposed to be about “equality” and asked “Don’t all lives matter?” and oh my God … people lost their shit!
“This isn’t about white people, this is about black people!”
(Ummm … isn’t that statement inherently racist?)
People like Billie Eilish went off the deep end with diatribes like this:
Uh … Billie … I think your “woke” ideology has blinded you from seeing the reality of what’s going on. The whole generation she is a part of has been duped. They want equality for everybody but the shit going on now with the Black Lives Matter is not about equality … it’s a race war and it’s being fueled by the media … not The President.
If you support the movement then I’m sure your eye is starting to twitch and your screaming …
“Black people just want equality and that’s what they are protesting!”
Yes, that may be what it started out as but clearly it has morphed into something completely different now. The lines and message have blurred and now you have Antifa and NFAC that are advocating for separation from whites and the Black Lives Matter movement isn’t necessarily trying to separate themselves from this bullshit:
John Jay Fitzgerald Johnson, known as Grand Master Jay, claims leadership of the group and has stated that it is composed of “ex military shooters.” Johnson, who was an independent candidate for U.S. president in 2016, stated, “We are a Black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do.” Furthermore, in the same interview, Johnson expressed Black Nationalist views, putting forth the view that the United States should either hand the state of Texas over to African-Americans so that they may form an independent country, or allow African-Americans to depart the United States to another country that would provide land upon which to form an independent nation. – excerpt from Wikipedia
I’m sure if you support Black Lives Matter then you would say that is a fringe group and you can’t cluster them in with the legitimate protests. Well … not all white people are racists … but Black Lives Matter sure doesn’t have a problem lumping all white people together and calling them ALL racists!
White people are getting tired of being called racists and tired of the hypocrisy which is why you are seeing groups like the Proud Boys forming. Black people scream about wanting to be equal but until you get rid of BET, The NAACP Image Awards, Miss Black USA Scholarship Pageant, The National Urban League, The Congressional Black Caucus and all the other “black only” groups … nobody is buying that you want equality. You see the hypocrisy, right!?
Yahoo now has a section for stories that are exclusively black. What would happen if there was a section for white people only? Oh yeah! There was and laws were written to make it illegal … yet it’s okay for black people to do it now. It has now become accepted to promote Black Owned shops! Do you think they could have a section for White Owned shops. Fuck No!
Why is that even a category!? Should it matter if the shop owner is black … or should it just matter if you like the shit they’re selling!? Etsy recently took things a step further and removed any merchandise that was related to the Proud Boys.
Their explanation was as follows:
Selling such items violates the company’s policies prohibiting “among other things, hate against protected identities [and] attempting to incite violence against individuals or groups.”
If this is their policy then why is it okay for them to continue selling this:
… or this …
Last time I checked the Black Panthers were a militant group that stood for black pride. How is that different from white pride? Answer: It’s not!
The media is playing a dangerous game with the country and unfortunately there are too many people who let emotion get in the way of rational thinking and blindly believe the narrative the media is pushing. So if you think that The President is responsible for the rise in white nationalism, I would have to disagree. It is the media that is responsible and Trump is the scapegoat!
As usual, hate mail goes to firstname.lastname@example.org if I’ve offended you.

You make a lot of good points. I too don’t think it is right to lump all people together in one group. There’s also a game being played in which if a white person denies being racist, they are called defensive. Don’t tell me how I feel or what’s in my heart. It’s to the point where if you like Mrs. Butterworth you’re racist. I had no idea Mrs. Butterworth was black. I always thought she was white, with a last name as English-sounding as Butterworth. So no, I am not secretly racist because she apparently isn’t white (I’m still not 100% convinced). Also, as a Catholic, I cannot support BLM. There’s another game here–if you say that, you’re racist because you are saying that black lives do not matter. Nope, not what I’m saying. I cannot support the organization because of their positions on unrelated topics such as the dissolution of the nuclear family. Can’t and will never support such a position, sorry. I’m just tired. I don’t like being told who I am, in my heart. I can only do my best to see people the way God wants me to, and God does not want discord but unity. Separation by color is not unity.
Thank you for commenting.
