When You Play With White Nationalism And White Supremacy You're Playing With Fire.

Literally and figuratively. Just as Donald Trump has done. Just as certain Youtube channels have done. Just as certain social media sectors have done. Just as Fox News, AM radio, right wing churches and pastors have done.

If you play with, toy with, or hint at white nationalism, white supremacy, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and neo Nazism, you might as well light a match and throw it in a forest. These are not "very fine people". These are the lowest scum of humanity. These are the real haters. Think there's "very fine people on both sides"? Think again.

It is not OK or cool to be a white nationalist, white supremacist, or a neo Nazi. Period. And there's hundreds of examples of white nationalists getting arrested or committing crimes, and their pattern of behavior is not at all shocking. We have seen it time and time again, and today's tragedy is a reminder of that fact. We used to condemn their behavior, now we give them safe spaces. It is way past time to denounce these people and the unfiltered hatred that they stand for.

4. All societies where racism is institutionalized and one religion is promoted over other

religions or no religion at all are likely to produce groups who believe they are superior to others and can exterminate them at will.

Until we abandon xenophobia and jingoism, we are collectively doomed.
These are the extremists, but others hide the same feelings and believe they are entitled to rights not available to others.

5. And the scary thing is this administration embraces it.

And I feel like it's been amplified 1000 fold since Trump began campaigning. I also feel like things are going to get worse before they get better.

9. Yep - but they regrouped during the Obama years with the help of social media

The sad and frightening truth is that the racists would rather tear down all of democracy rather than allow a non-white leader because Obama shattered all their fucking stupid myths about the African man. If the system is fair, non-whites will lead and that must be stopped at all costs.

Tear down institutional racism or little will change.
The vile piece of shit is overt about it.
