Devolving Into White Supremacism

The GOP has devolved into a white supremacist party bent on national theocracy. The GOP is engineering a coup to take over the federal government permanently. Their billionaire backers support them for their own economic reasons.

Voter suppression, resegregation of the South through gerrymandering, et al. are just some of the tools they are using. The Republiklan party needs to be openly challenged and called out.

Should they win the US will become impossible to recognize. They have already done unrepairable cultural and economic damage to this country over the last thirty years. Letting the GOP have power is like letting a child molester into your home.

1. Well said!!! Hopefully more Americans are waking up, but I still fear many

Americans can't see past the rhetoric and campaign ads to see/get the real truth. This is such a highly propagandized nation and many still just don't get it ...

2. Tell me that isn't the driver behind all of the fear of contraception too.

And don't forget the winking imbecile in the closet: Secessionism.

3. The GOP is openly challenged and called out

 

Democrats contest GOP talking points every day and challenge them in every election.

What sways people isn't unsubstantiated hyperbole like this, but verifiable facts that point out the folly of GOP positions on the issues.

8. Fogged Over

The GOP's position on race relations has been very fogged over for many years. The media has aided and abetted in helping them keep their cover. The tea baggers began to expose them.

They have been very successful at burying their real feelings and motives very deeply. In order to satisfy what is really their base forces them to come out in the open more. For a long time I knew where they stood but never could completely connect the dots.

What they are doing is played at the unconscious level using code words and memes that are used in neurolinquistic programming. It is a psychotherapy method that allows messages to be slipped in under the person's conscious mind. The GOP has adopted all of these techniques for their own purpose.

It took me a while to dig down deep enough into the main theme that comes out from all of their rhetoric. No matter what the issue the main theme is that they are telling whites in particular that the Democrats are giving your money to an "N" or an "S" exactly in those unmentionable terms. I liken what they are doing to the base drum or the base notes used on a pipe organ no matter what the melody is. That drum beat is ALWAYS there. It is so clever and unrecognizable to the conscious mind. It taps into our darkest core.

It is so successful for most people because we act and react at the unconscious level. The bad feeling supersedes all logic and facts. That is why arguing or debating is pointless until you reframe that feeling.

10. More worrisome to me is the theocracy

Being an out-and-out racist is becoming less and less popular.

Being a crazy theocrat who subscribes to an exceptionalist view of American history is on the rise, and it freaks me out.

13. Agreed. "I would only vote for a Christian" is much more socially acceptable

than "I would only vote for a white guy".

20. Deep Down Theocratic Fight

Deep down this fight has also been a theocratic fight. There is a dominionist movement in this country for a long time. I remember discussing it at length with someone in 2004.

When my mother in law passed away at 104 in 2008 we took her to Kentucky to be buried next to her husband. The morning we went to the Baptist church in south central Kentucky I would get surprise of my life. The preacher used the "in God We Trust" statement on the dollar bill to make the case that this country must be bible ruled. That we must replace the constitution with Christian values. That the political process must be in accordance with the ten commandments. His entire sermon was about taking over the nation.

He went on to claim that Columbus came to American to establish a Christian nation. And the history he claimed was so revisionist to be unrecognizable. The congregation that day said "Amen". He basically hinted that they must elect only Christians. They were the only ones who were qualified to run the nation. I do not remember a single black person or person of color being in the church.

He was saying that Christ accepted capitalism as the Christian way.

18. Plausible deniability

one who looks like "one of them" who reinforces a belief that stereotypes aren't actually racist- just fact. "Blacks have been brainwashed," etc.

11. A powerful metaphor

When the overripe fruit of the marula tree (or racisim) falls within reach of the creatures of the jungle (or Right Wing), mayhem ensues!

12. If a Republican only dislikes blacks who they disagree with politically,

like Barack Obama and Eric Holder, but likes blacks that they agree with, like Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, and Condoleeza Rice, can that Republican really be considered to be a "white supremacist"?

14. Yes...

Because, you can NAME practically everyone that they do like and everyone that they don't like makes up the remainder of black people.

15. Is that the case?

Or do they accept Cain, Thomas and Rice as politically beneficial in the quest for power, while hiding or even suppressing their feelings of dislike?

9. I really do think

we are going to have to come up with some real and valid arguments if we want to have the independent voters join us in reelecting Obama. I have heard more effective speech at midnight in bars!

21. One example: White Nationalist to Speak from Podium at CPAC 2012

Bob Vandervoort is scheduled to moderate a Thursday afternoon panel at the CPAC 2012 conference, entitled, "The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the Pursuit of Diversity is Weakening the American Identity." Vandervoort listed his organizational affiliation as executive director of ProEnglish—an English-Only outfit founded by John Tanton. What he left out of his bio is that he was also the organizer of the white nationalist group, Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance, while he lived in Illinois.

Vandervoort's position at ProEnglish is not surprising, given his familiarity with the Nativist Establishment. He and several Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance members attended a March 22, 2005 Federation for American Immigration Reform meeting at the Lincoln Restaurant in Chicago. At a November 13, 2004 FAIR "Midwest Immigration Reform Summit" in Rosemont, Illinois, Vandervoort attended and passed out leaflets to the crowd announcing a local American Renaissance event.

Vandervoort was hired during the autumn of 2011, by the Tanton-founded English-Only group ProEnglish, after the organization lost three other executive directors in less than a year. Shortly after Vandervoort took the job, ProEnglish hired Phil Tignino as the group's web master and social media coordinator. Tignino was the former head of the Washington State University chapter of the white nationalist college group, Youth for Western Civilization.

Other panelists at the Thursday afternoon event include: Peter Brimelow, editor of the white nationalist website VDARE; Serge Trifkovic, an Islamophobic Serbian expatriate who before becoming the foreign affairs editor at the paleo-conservative magazine Chronicles was a spokesman for the convicted war criminal Biljana Plavsic; ProEnglish board chair, Rosalie Porter; and John Derbyshire, a contributing editor at National Review.
