In the first presidential and VP debates, the Democrat candidates claimed that Trump hasn't denounced "White Supremacy". Chris Wallace even made a point to push Trump to denounce it (again) in the debate. The result is many Democrat voters fervently believe that Trump is a racist. This pairs up nicely with the Left's narrative that if you are not an anti-racist (i.e., want to dismantle the "system of oppression" which is based on "whiteness" ), then you're a racist.
I found this video on [twitter.com] which, aside from painting Biden as a clown, shows Trump condemning Neo Nazi's and White Nationalists. At first I thought this is obvious lying but there is something else going on. If you read the twitter replies, some people who watch the video believe strongly that Trump didn't REALLY condemn them. One even cited Trump glancing at the camera as proof that he was disingenuous.
What is going on here?
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." - Joseph Goebbels (yeah, he was a Nazi)
The last four years has been nonstop insanity from the Left and proven to me that not only did I waste my time and votes on them year after year but -if they win-anyone not on the left should find another country to live in. They have already shown us what they are willing to do and what their lawmakers are willing to look the other way over. They know he's not a white supremacist. They just want to lie to themselves so that they can justify being a hate mob. After all, to them the ends justifies the means and in the pursuit of eradicating racism they can harm and kill people and sleep like infants at night.
If anti-racism was so important to them then Virginia would have impeached its governor, Jimmy Kimmel would be out of a job, and Biden wouldn't be their nominee. Their machine has convinced people that it is okay to be caught being racist under specific conditions, just like sexual assualt. Those conditions being "Democrat in an election year".
Western Supremacy vs. White Supremacy
Is there a fine line between white supremacy and racism? Not really. One is subset of the other. But that’s not the real question of 2020.
Look: There are Black supremacists (Nation of Islam). The Japanese by most accounts are pretty much Japanese supremacists. If you think your race is generally superior, that makes you a racist by most definitions. Old news.
Proud Boys (however, as differential example) are neither white supremacists nor racists. Their president is presently a black man. What they are, is "Western cultural chauvanists." More interesting. They think that Western culture is superior, and I think there's a good argument to be made for that myself.
From the alphabet to the movable type printing press, to the photocopier, electronic computer and internet, that's western culture. From the laws of electomagnetism to those of gravity to nuclear energy, that's western culture. The steam train, the auto, the airplane, the Moon rocket--western culture. Newton's mechanics, quantum mechanics, special and general relativity and quantum electrodynamics and the standard model in physics-- western culture. Chemistry as an exact science, discovery of DNA, genetic engineering, and so on.
Was it all the west? Of course not. Western culture “appropriated” everything from Arabic numerals to the Indian zero. There was a big assist from High Islam in the dark ages, after Rome fell. The Chinese invented gunpowder, but the west figured out how to make weapons with it, and so on, and so on.
But generally, we all ride on technology invented in the west. You do if you're reading this on Facebook on some device made of transistors.
Plenty of art was invented in the west, too. Until K-pop.
Western Civ starts in Egypt, moves to Greece, Rome, Byzantines, England, Europe, US, etc. I have left out the Babylonians and others but I’m trying for empires that made big progress. All these people had the advantage of the Mediterranean as play pool. They learned long distance sailing and got wealthy in trade, then war and colonialism, and finally dominated the world. The Mediterranean is why you have your iPhone and why it was invented by people who spoke English. It’s all chance but some culture had to do it first. Same with going to the Moon.
Over the past several generations there has been a general attack on “Western Civilization” classes in universities. Jared Diamond wrote “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” but was ignored. The attack was not happenstance, but I think was mostly jealousy, and a grab for political power by Marxists who had been formerly pushing "The Second World" of USSR and China but lost that race. So now what?
And most recently, the “Third World,”which had been pawns in the cold war between First and Second World, has joined in the anger. How come the First World has all the good stuff? It stole it, maybe. So Marxism said. But capitalists managed to resist those ideas. They just said “Socialism fails. Get your own, like Singapore.”
The Marxists weren’t giving up so easily. They were entrenched in western universities and weren’t interested in Singapore. So they changed their narrative.
Here is the newer and more visceral idea: that "western culture" is just a polite term for “white culture,” and thus saying western culture is superior IS a type of white supremacy claim. Aha.
It is not, of course. The association of lighter skin and European sailing is chance. But the people who want to push the destruction of western economics (primarily) and western science (secondarily) hope you won’t notice. They know that claims of racism and evil-whites will serve their cause better than claims of evil-capitalism (again, since the East lost the Cold war). This new narrative is their best chance.
People laugh at full economic socialism. So, rename it! We can rebrand anticapitalism as antiracism, and that gives the Marxists leverage (nevermind that Marx himself was racist, antisemitic, and wouldn’t pass a #MeToo test).
All the arguments about class-struggle can be repackaged as “structural racism” and racial justice. How exciting! Since people tend to leave wealth to their own descendants and tribes, very little must change in Marx’s overall views but the destription of winners and losers in terms of skin tone rather than wealth.
We are looking to prey upon the guilty children of privilege, like Engels. It might not irk people anymore to be called capitalists and derided for having more money. But it does irk them to be called racists, as that's a moral issue, and now we've finally succeeded in turning the economic debate into a moral debate that everybody understands better.
And here we are. "Critical Race Theory" is just rebranded Marxism with all the old ideas coming with a new label of structural racism on them, so you can't laugh at them.
But what to do? You are sitting there at your computer making 10 times the world poverty level salary and burning 10 times the amount of fossil fuel, and you're wearing clothes made in Vietnam and probably shoes made in some third world country by people who are abused, and making some Black basketball star rich. No, they aren't made in St. Louis or Detroit. They are made by capitalistic “exploitation," with the top profits chopped off and donated to BLM for the purpose of giving you riots and making you specifically feel guilty (but not any of those other players). And now you are a racist.
The new Left now also has your "whiteness" lumped into a single group, whether your ancestors are from Ireland or Italy, or are atheists, Jews or Christians.
It was Trotsky who first weaponized the term “racism” as an attack tool to be used against the anti-Communists or fascists. It is now a last tool to be picked up by the have-nots in modern world. It is a powerful tool. The problem of “blame the rich” was that class mobility existed. “Blame white people” now passed guilt along bloodlines and diffused it over imaginary groups by generalization. Guilt was now transmitted genetically.
Nevermind that all this is the original sin of racism, but simply applied to Europeans. The Critical Race Theory philosophers weren’t worried about hypocrisy or irony. They simply wanted power from whoever would be fooled by old wine in new bottles.
Again, identifying cultures with racial groups is itself a fairly virulent form of racism. Especially at the same time denying quite rightly that division of people into a few skin tone “racial groups” is not a good biological concept. What matters is the target.
This time, YOU the “white person” are the victim of the hate. It is born out of jealousy, because your ancestors chose wisely.
And it is a shell game. The same old Communist shell game with different colored shells.
At the level of the lies being told in this matter the lies constitute the prosecutable crime known as treason, calling these lies anything other than a cause to bring the treasonous before the people in a Court of Law (common law, not Admiralty, Equity, Family, etc.) is a failure of moral duty in my opinion.
Trump's opponents are obsessed with creating false narratives they hope will affect the election. As we get closer, look for them to intensify. They don't care that they're misleading people. They just want to sow seeds of doubt until the election is over.
Why didn't they keep asking Hillary to denounce her mentor the Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan?
Whatever Trump says or however he says it it will not cure TDS. Our ignorant intelligencia needs to look at how similar Trump is treated to how the press treated Lincoln. The Washington establishment has always been a "mean girls club".
Trump is a the Texas Wrestling president, who cares. The " eloquent" Obama was one of the most incompetent presidents we have ever had. Based on recently released documents Obama was also dirtier than tricky Dick. I wouldn't think it would be necessary to point out how shallow the intellectual class is.
Admin, The LIBs can ONLY HEAR what THEY want, why does that still surprise you???????
I like "SLOW JOE'S", new campaign position!!!!
"You have NO RIGHT to know what I am, (SLOW JOE) planning to do as President!!!
You only have to right to vote for ME, then sit back and keep YOUR MOUTH SHUT, and "OBEY"!!!!
So, get out and "Vote for Joe", LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!
It’s modern myth. All religions have myths that explain their faith to the believers. The key word is “faith,” the certainty about things for which there is no evidence. The beautiful thing about faith: not only does it fly in the face of logic and objective truth, confronting it on those grounds simply makes it stronger. Affirming ones faith against proof that there is no basis for doing do becomes a badge of honor for the true believer. Virgin birth, Ressurection, turning into an eagle after eating a peyote button—religion by definition is outside the realm of truth, at least as a scientist might define it.
The Christian believes in Heaven and a personal relationship with Jesus. The left believes in the socialist utopia, the faith in which remains steadfast despite over a century and a half legacy of failure, poverty, misery and mass murder. Ignoring truth and denying evidence is the M.O. of the left, of necessity. Objective truth has no role in their universe.
Opposing viewpoints are existential threats, to be ignored, then silenced. Those who disagree are enemies to be destroyed. Lying about them, creating a narrative of rank evil about them, makes perfect sense in the context of an ideology that has lost all concept of objective truth. Political truth is all that matters—that which feeds into the narrative (myth) and furthers the agenda.
Biden let the cat out of the bag in what was taken to be just another gaffe: “We choose truth over facts,” he said with the fiery certainty of the zealot. We should have listened to him. He just revealed the true mindset of the left.
Trump spent so much of his presidency with sarcastic jokes that no one can take anything seriously from him anymore.
It is why he keeps being called a clown.
Stop joking around, stop wearing faggot makeup and people will take you seriously.
It really is that simple.
It's not that Trump doesn't denounce white supremacy, it's the way that he does it.
Instead of being clear and concise, he's nervous and hesitant. He has repeated this behavior pretty much every time when questioned on a racial subject.
That is the reason why people tend to think he's insincere.
Given the strange and trying times we live in and knowing how political correctness is more widespread than ever, once an individual comes to hate another and especially where political views also enter into the equation, an individual's bias appears to be nearly impossible to overcome. Even if strong evidence is presented that could clearly debunk any reason for holding such biases, minds do not change, and again that is especially true these days when politics are part of the equation. There are some folks out there who hate Trump with such a burning passion for whatever reasons, that they will not ever allow themselves to give Trump any credit for doing the right things. No shortage of cognitive dissonance to go around...
They will have nothing to smear him with, and they can't hit him with anything else because they did it themselves. It is all coming back and biting them in the ass now.
The Internet that Clinton"s Administration pushed for making it available to everyone, destroyed the control of information they and the MSM had. That one took the biggest bite.
Another is people can see what was actually said and what actually happened, because of the Internet, years ago majority found out information by word of mouth, now they can see it for themselves.
An example of it is this from [mentalfloss.com]
7. Joe Biden
"By all accounts, Biden wasn’t the world’s greatest student, but he made up for his academic shortcomings with sheer likability. Biden ranked 506th out of 688 students in the University of Delaware’s class of 1965, but a professor still recommended him for law school “on grounds of personality and general promise.” The future VP didn’t exactly turn on the jets once he got to law school, either. He finished 76th in his class of 85 students at Syracuse, and admitted to plagiarism in his first year of law school. But again, a dean recommended him for a job on the basis of his “confidence,” “general physical appearance,” and “general speaking ability.”"
None of it to do with his capabilities. Makes you wonder why they picked a guy that to be Obama's VP, right?
If you want to see Biden as a clown (in his own words) have a look at this collection -
I think Candace Owens has the right words for what the left is doing with the tired old "White Supremacist" lie-
“But I’m a coon, right? A coon w/ a crystal ball who has warned black America for the last 4 yrs to get ready to check our emotions in an election cycle bc the media will attempt to turn us all into circus monkeys if we don’t raise our emotional IQ.
“They win, we lose. AGAIN!”
It's an old fashioned case of gaslighting. Unfortunately for them it's all they have, Orange Man bad. One hell of a platform isn't it? Unfortunately for everyone in their right minds, at least half of this Country believes every word they say. I heard someone on a radio show the other day that believed with every fiber of their soul that Trump built the cages at our Southern Border and started the policy of seperating children from their parents.
Well, the video would have been more convincing if it had not portrayed Biden as a clown and repeated the same clip of Trump played over and over making it appear that he routinely condemns white supremacy. The answer to the original question seem abundantly clear. The Dems simply don't believe Trump. I could spend time pointing to innumerable examples of Trump's inconsistent manner of speaking, but I hardly think it is necessary. Anyone paying even the slightest attention could hardly miss the fact that he routinely engages in rambling dialog. Ben Shapiro calls Trump's manner of speaking "imprecise" - a generous appraisal to say the least. Trump's tepid diatribes hardly scream conviction against white supremacy or conviction to anything else for that matter. His lack of leadership skill and random oratory, driven by uncontrollable impulses, sets the country adrift - a rudderless ship exposed to the churning waves of Mother Nature, a divided, discontented and angry citizenry and Covid - 19, all guided by an administration unable to chart a course and hobbled by a leader whose impulses drive him hither and tither and away from commitment. It seems conservatives are in a political "no man's land." Either they roll the dice, place their bets on the craps table and risk sending the country into anarchy, chaos or oligarchy or they plot a course to a place they say they don't want to go. I trust with all confidence that they will choose badly.
