A question racism and white supremacy.
Okay, if I'm understanding these idiots right, they believe that whites are the master race and non-whites are sub-human. So, within the context of their hateful beliefs I can see why they hate blacks, Asians, and other non-white people, what I don't understand is why do they hate Jews? I mean Jews are white. I really don't understand it, the only reason I can think of is so they can call white people they don't like Jews.

1. It is also (a specific type of) Christian supremacy.

White people of any wrong religion are hated: Roman Catholics, Mormons, Jews, Muslims, etc.

3. Answer: Racism is irrational. Their little pea brains are just wired wrong.
The White Supremacists used to have the Irish also. :shrug:

4. Who says they don't hate Jews? I mean all this conspiracy nonsense about the "soros elite" and

"blood libel" is really just a dog whistle to the anti-semitism and racism in the T-Bagger movement.

7. I'm sure a lto of the T-bagger movement is composed of closet
white supremacists, but I'm mainly referring to the Neo-nazi types who are honest about it. Though, there was a thread here a while ago posting a link from stormfront on how to recruit T-baggers.

5. What's funny is that white people have more Neanderthal DNA than non-whites...
... which arguably makes white people LESS pure.

8. Some people see "Jews" as a race of people, but the KKK and their ilk hate them
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 10:08 AM by in_cog_ni_to
on the religion issue...Jews killed Jesus and of course, the white supremacists ADORE Hitler. It's an extension of that also. BTW, many Jews are black too. :)

10. Racists are hardly rational people
They tend to dislike homosexuals, as well, and we come in all colors. They don't seem to care for anyone that isn't Christian. There is definitely a religious component to it.

13. It boils down to religious intolerance
These nutjobs think you're going to hell if you don't believe in Jeebus, so that's the Jew's fatal flaw as far as the fundies are concerned, even though they're MUCH MORE Old Testament fire and brimstone than the more tolerant and gentle New Testament.

16. Yep. Dogma is very often the cause, and manifestation, of madness.

12. According to a documentary i'm watching by National Geographic
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 10:37 AM by white_wolf
There are 13,000 neo-Nazis in America, 10,000 racist skin heads and 5,000 KKK. I know the KKK is sort of the Old Guard of American rascism with its roots in the post-confederate south but, aren't the Neo-Nazis and Skinheads the same movement?

14. Lots of people don't consider the "jews" whatever that term
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 10:53 AM by Solomon
is supposed to mean, to be "white". Some say they have Mongol genes mixed in and some say they have African genes mixed in. They appear to be white, but they have mixed blood. (don't flame me, I'm only telling you others' theories) In fact, this is even implied in the word "semite".

Some even posit that the reason Hitler wanted to eliminate them is because since they look "white", the have a greater potential and ability to infect the pure white race gene pool than say a dark skinned African.

15. I will say this for them.
At least they are honest racists unlike the tea-party, it makes it much easier to fight them when their honest. Now if the tea-party would just be as honest about their racist reactionary beliefs we wouldn't have to worry about them anymore, either.

17. Here's the deal.
"Whiteness" has changed over time. White supremacists missed that memo, along with the memos about treating people nicely, etc. Sooo, if you weren't considered "white" in 1850, you aren't "white" to them. Jews, Irish/Italian.etc. Catholics, and similar groups now considered "white" by our culture were not always so. Therefore, crazy white supremacists don't consider them white.

19. I'm pretty sure I'd be banned there in a heartbeat.
The only other RW site I know if Free Republic and I've seen how they treat questions and dissent and I can only imagine neo-nazis to be even worse.

21. Well, furthermore, how can someone who hates Jews be a Christian?
It makes no sense.
