Without actual data that 'proves' the rise of white nationalism, I am of the belief that violent crimes perpetrated by individual white people are indeed on the rise. (I haven't done the research to prove my belief; this is just an opinion based various anecdote about what I hear and read.)

I also believe that some of this (incredibly misplaced and completely immoral) white violence is due to their perception that society is endeavoring to silence their voices and discount the value of their existence.

The 'cancel culture' environment has contributed to this tragic over-reaction. But nuts look for reasons to act nutty (or worse) and so too many of these white nuts are over-reacting & killing people.

As far a 'white nationalist' movement, I haven't seen any real data that suggests a coordinated 'movement.'

(*) The most active violent (largely) white group in America which seems to get mobilized by the 'leftist dog-whistle) appears to be Antifa.

"The growing white nationalism element of the GOP". That's what this is ultimately about. Creating and sustaining a narrative, for political purposes, associating white supremacist terrorists in particular and racists in general with the Republican party. Painting with the broadest possible brush, to create the impression that anybody who votes Republican is probably a racist who supports those things, and that only by voting for and supporting Democrats can one be on the "right" side and oppose racism and white supremacy.

And it's all a load of BS. Of course we have to crack down on white supremacy groups that are involved in violence and terrorism, but trying to pin it on Republicans (I'm not one) is shameless and doesn't do anything to address the real problem.

Who can deny your observation here?

Sure, white people commit crimes (and plenty of gruesome ones).

Sure, black people commit crimes (and plenty of gruesome ones).

But we've all learned that when the media is silent about the race of the criminal in question, then the overwhelming odds (as those who follow the crime after the media buzz has moved on) proves that the 'unidentified' criminal is a non-white (and most commonly black).

If the truth is racist, then lies are not racist.

You've nailed it as far as the soft bigotry of the left.

Instead of calling out the terrible black on black crime situation and then getting serious about fixing it, the liberals choose instead to virtue signal by not calling this out. Even worse, in recent times the phony 'racial justice warriors' among both the white and blacks fight like mad to get violent black criminals out on bail; these terrible criminals then go on to harm more black people.

But none of this matters to the 'racial justice' phonies; they will either profit from it (political office or being appointed to a gov't job by race-baiter politicians) or the Negro-phobic white liberals can then go back to their all-white private lives and talk among their all-white friends about how much they care about black people.

White supremacists are not "exceedingly rare". A fairly significant chunk of the incarcerated white population belongs to the Aryan Brotherhood and it percolates out from there.

Check out a lot of white dudes with prison tats and a lot of them are going to have those telltale teardrops on the face, those double lightning bolts or "AB" symbols - usually on the neck - or those "1488" tattoos on their knuckles. (I learned to do this reflexively...back when I bounced, the vets always taught the young guys what to look for, especially with gang/prison tats, because it told you a lot about if you were dealing with just one guy and if he was a serious criminal...or if he might have buddies nearby who would jump in on you without a second thought.)

There's a lot more of that junk around than most people see. Play Tattoo Bingo in a Wal-Mart sometime and you'll see a lot more than you realized if you look for it.

ideology that cannot be ignored. We absolutely must address it as a country. I am all for doing so immediately and aggressively. One white supremacist is one too many.

Be sure you understand me there.

I still maintain that true white supremacists are exceedingly rare, meaning that they make up a tiny percentage of the overall white population. I have no numbers, no official stats, but based on personal experience, like I say I grew up working middle class in the south and lived here all of my life. When I was a kid in the early 1960s, the "N" word was common and accepted. I witnessed a public cross-burning by the KKK. Schools were segregated. Black people rode in the back of the bus and sat in the balcony in our local movie theatres. Black people were not allowed to drink directly from the water fountain in my great uncle's plumbing supply store; instead they had to drink from a ladle that hung on the wall. In those days, I probably knew a lot of true white supremacists. But man, thankfully all of those things changed almost overnight, and when I was in 4th or 5th grade schools were integrated and I grew up with black friends and receiving a very different message - in school, on tv, from politicians, and at home: we were all created equal and we were all the same on the inside; color should not matter. Unity, brotherhood, love and respect for each other regardless of race or color. The racists and bigots did not go away overnight, but gradually, hearts and minds changed and most of the hard core racists died off and/or went away. Not completely of course, that may never happen, but in my lifetime, we've come a million miles.

Now, in 2022, I don't know a single person who supports segregation or separate water fountains for black people. I don't know a single person who believes that white people are a superior race who should rule the world. In my work, I am in frequent contact with workers in the construction trades. Ex-cons and rednecks are not that uncommon. Granted, they may be underground, hiding their true intentions, but I don't run into any who express white supremacist sentiments, much less identify as such. So yes, I maintain that they are exceedingly rare; they are the fringe. Relative to people who believe in racial harmony and a world where we race and color don't matter, these kooks are a tiny minority, and they are going to lose.

race fighting is only in maximum security prisons, or you will end up there if you start in the lower levels. The Aryan Brotherhood is very small. There are a lot of other white gangs, but the AB is small. In some maximum security prisons you have no choice but to join a gang based on your race, which means there are a lot more black and hispanic gang members then there are white gang members.

Most inmates are not in maximum security and will get out of prison.

They aren’t that prevalent and that the media has blown them out of proportion.

It would be silly though to say that the ones that do exist can’t be dangerous—of course they can, especially if they suffer from the mental illnesses that go hand in hand with extremist positions.

If this group is to be believed (link below—decidedly not a right wing group), there were 9 white supremacist related killings in 2020, with 4 of those being prison gang related deaths.

Obviously even one of these is pretty senseless, and I’m certainly not going to trivialize the 10 that just happened, but just being real about it, black people in the US should feel pretty comfortable that they aren’t going to die at the hands of a white supremacist. In fact, it’s roughly the same as the number of people who die annually from vending machines falling on them (8 on average).

The difference is the poor sap being snuffed out by a Lance machine doesn’t make the 24 hour news cycle for 4 or 5 days.

But when we examine terrorism, that IS a problem. It can't be coupled against other random acts of violence or statistical deaths. Terrorism has a far more specific goal, and demands more attention when acts of it spring up on our homeland. Those guys have a sinister goal for our nation; they aren't like the two punks on the street who get into an argument.

So, statistically, do I have a chance of being a victim from it? Not likely. But as long as it isn't given very serious attention and extra scrutiny, I would wager those chances grow.

I find the claims that white supremacism is growing by any meaningful metric to already be dubious, but when it's wound in with an attempted dammning tie to the GOP, it's really gone off the partisan rails.

White supremacy might be getting more coverage than any point in recent history, but you'll have an extremely difficult time convincing me that this country isn't the least racist it's ever been in its history, and gets less and less racist with every passing year. A few fringe nuts (some committed to their cause, and most just mentally ill) who will always exist don't change that, and they certainly don't have control, much less influence, upon any political party.

When a psychopathic schizophrenic goes on a killing spree, how I consider the person and their motives isn't much different from how I attempt to comprehend a deranged person ranting on a street corner----it's a mentally broken person doing mentally broken things. Their rationale truly doesn't matter to me because I'm a rational person and it's a meaningless exercise to try and apply rational logic to an irrational person.

Dear 19B® and deroberts, if you return to the white supremacists are media creation post, then please come back and read CaptCrash's post, and especially the link.

Darryl E. Brooks, killer in the Nov. 2021 Christmas celebration in Wisconsin ... is there any mention of his race in the article? Maybe I missed it.

If not, then why not? Did NBC News just 'forget' to include that in the article?

Was NBC News covering up for the fact that this was a white guy, and was trying to keep the article as 'race neutral' because they wanted to focus on the deed instead of the demographics?

SUV’s have no race, and the article makes clear

That an SUV drove into the crowd. The man is irrelevant. He was just along for the ride.

Moments like this become painful on this board. There aren't defenses of this, but there seems to be too much of a scramble to "but.. but..." Really, shouldn't this be a moment when everyone here agrees this is horrible and something needs to be done to stop it? This psycho isn't on anyone's "side" here; I don't label him a Republican or a typical Trumpist anymore than I'd label an Antifa person as a typical Dem.

What's sad is what's coming next. We'll get "Look, black person doing something bad!" posts from Clem_chem and NC_Tiger. Or folks will start tossing around crime stats on African Americans to counter. Again, as if this is some sort of contest. That's the sad reality that's coming to this board.

I hope I'm proven wrong.

Using a despicable criminal act of violence to attempt to dunk on a strawman argument that no one seems to have made is very painful, and it puts people on the back foot and sets the quality of the discourse that follows.

It isn't. People here have made the argument on a less hyperbolic level.

If something in my post is a straw man, please let me know what it is.

a strawman argument.


If you say "A few members of the GOP are white supremacists" and I respond by saying "I'll just leave this picture of Tim Scott here, since I've heard some of you say that ALL members of the GOP are white supremacists", it's both hyperbolic, and a strawman argument.
