What is a white nationalist?

The news media has been relaying FBI warnings about dangerous “white nationalist groups” being the greatest threat to national security. The choir of the United Useful Idiots of America eats this up and spits it back out to their friends. Dangerous white nationals from … somewhere, are out there, and you need to be scared. But what is a white nationalist?

Let me introduce you to someone.

Enrique Tarrio – American Supremacist

The man wearing the “American Supremacist” is famous “white nationalist”, Enrique Tarrio. Wait, did I say Enrique? White what?

That’s right folks. Mr. Tarrio, who self-proclaims to be afro-cuban, is currently the leader of a group of males that call themselves “The Proud Boys”. In spite of what the media would have you believe, they are not a “white nationalist group”. There is no racial requirement to join the club. In fact, the only requirement is the correct genitalia, and that it was there at birth.

Don’t take my word for it. They have a website, and an “About Us” page.

Wikipedia has this to say, after they call the group “neo-fascist” (more on this later):

… The Proud Boys glorifies violence, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has called the group an “alt-right fight club”.[7][8] The organization has been described as a hate group by NPR’s The Takeaway and the SPLC.[9] The ADL has described the Proud Boys as “extremist conservative” and “alt lite”, “overtly Islamophobic and misogynistic”, “transphobic and anti-immigration”, “all too willing to embrace racists, antisemites and bigots of all kinds”, and notes the group’s promotion and use of violence as a core tactic.[10] The group has been banned from numerous social networks. Government agencies in the United States and Canada have considered labeling the Proud Boys as an extremist or terrorist organization.

And this, in summary, is the entire claim that the “Proud Boys” are a “white whatever-ist” organization.

The Southern Poverty Law Center

It all began with the Southern Poverty Law Center. In a 2017 post to their website, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) posted a story about an entirely different group that was organizing alongside the original “Proud Boys” group. It was this new and different group that they called a ‘New “Fight Club” Ready for Street Violence”.

But let’s dig a little further, shall we?

On the dedicated page for the Proud Boys at the SPLC there are many cherry-picked unsavory quotes from Gavin McInnes. McInnes is the Canadian co-founder of Vice, who also had something to do with the group’s forming in 2016. If he is a white nationalist, wouldn’t he be a Canadian nationalist?

The SPLC’s “white nationalist”

And just what is a “white nationalist” anyway? Handily, the SPLC has a page for that too.

White nationalist groups espouse white supremacist or white separatist ideologies, often focusing on the alleged inferiority of nonwhites. Groups listed in a variety of other categories—Ku Klux Klan, neo-Confederate, neo-Nazi, racist skinhead and Christian Identity—could also be fairly described as white nationalist.

So, according to the SPLC, “Christian Identity” now means “White Nationalist”. The FBI sharing this misguided sentiment would certainly explain why they believe “white nationalists” are the biggest threat to the count. There are a fair number of people who would “identify Christian” who are almost certainly no threat to national security.

The SPLC doesn’t go as far as Wikipedia, which if you recall refers to the Proud Boys a “neo-fascist” group. Wikipedia defines “neo-fascism” as:

Neo-fascism is a post-World War II ideology that includes significant elements of fascism. Neo-fascism usually includes ultranationalism, racial supremacy, populism, authoritarianism, nativism, xenophobia and anti-immigration sentiment as well as opposition to liberal democracy, parliamentarianism, liberalism, Marxism, communism and socialism.

Check your own facts

We all understand that Wikipedia is community edited, and that the United Useful Idiots of America are part of the community, but have we really come to the point where someone who is opposed to liberalism, Marxism, communism and socialism is called a fascist? Adding a ‘neo-‘ prefix does little to soften the blow of being equated to a Nazi.

How many Americans are unaware that they are white nationalist neo-fascist nazis?

It doesn’t matter if it’s Wikipedia, the Southern Poverty Law Center, or the Commie News Network, making up lies and spreading them as the truth is a tactic of totalitarians of all kinds. Still, the current amount of commie rhetoric around this topic of “white nationals” is positively ridiculous.

The only thing more embarrassing than the state of journalism in these United States, is the Useful Idiot masses who gobble up the “fact checked” excreta with a shovel.
