A conversation with a couple of friends last night highlighted that there is a fear and dread amongst people of colour ( & undoubtedly all colours that believe the establishment narrative) and a hard belief that there is a white supremacy movement in the west.
Like the words racism and islamophobia (Post Truth Politics 003: #Islamophobia & #Racism), it is another of these post truths where the emotional content is more important than reality to the degree where the real meaning of the word becomes lost with out need of reference, and reflexive (aka the person using the word is in fact an example of the word).
Interestingly this hasn’t been a hard core sell of the term White Supremacy, it is the association to the words Nazi and Hitler that have been used prolifically that have developed this view, and the brain has a wonderful way of filtering and imagining to fit one’s own fears and beliefs.
Question: is there a white supremacy movement?
supremacist noun [ C ]
UK /suːˈprem.ə.sɪst/ US /suːˈprem.ə.sɪst/ disapproving
Cambridge Online Dictionary
Link to UKIP manifesto provides zero evidence of supremacy ideology.
I could find no evidence of Mike Pence being a supremacist or affiliated with any groups that promote supremacist ideas – having a political view that is not liberal left, doesn’t not make a person a supremacist. Alternative views and opinions are what make a democracy.
The KKK is so insignificant it is hardly even worth referencing – however, for all the leftist hystericia regarding white supremacy, it stands as an example of how much power white supremacist groups hold these days:
ADL Report: KKK Declining in Stature and Significance
Only 3,000 Klan Members in Small Groups With No Central Leadership
New York, NY, May 11, 2016 … Despite efforts by Ku Klux Klan groups to gain publicity by exploiting the presidential election and distributing hate literature, the Klan today is a collection of mostly small, disjointed groups with no predominant leadership or stability, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), “Tattered Robes: The State of the Ku Klux Klan.”
“What remains of the Klan is a collection of mostly small and disjointed groups that have difficulty in recruiting members and even maintaining any semblance of long-term stability,” said Oren Segal, Director of ADL’s Center on Extremism. “Klan groups form and dissolve just as quickly, and few longstanding groups still exist. Even those aren’t very healthy.”
The most important point to note about the definition of supremacy is the wanting to control others (other group or groups) because of a ‘belief’ of being better than those others.
We know that these ideas of supremacy have existed in various groups for 1000s of years, most recently, in the last few 100 years we have see imperialism which was a felt obligation to spread European culture as the pinnacle of humanity, we have seen Nazis, Arab supremacy (Darfur), Zionism (creation and expansion of Israel), American supremacy (bringing democracy to middle east), Chinese supremacy (Tibet), Islam (ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood), Elitism (global). The list is extensive. Not wanting to diminish the crimes of one group over others in the pursuit of domination, the point is that it is not uncommon as a human trait and it is not restricted to one particular group.
More than that, the belief exists as a minority within a group, rarely, if ever have they represented the majority.
Supremacy is a counter to beliefs of democracy defined as follows:
A democracy is reference to majority rule through the ballot box. So if there is a majority of one race, culture, religion, tradition, then it is likely, though not certain (depending on the degree of majority) that it will naturally dominate, because it is the majority that achieves the majority representation. The majority can’t stop being a majority by virtue of their existence. In effect that would be saying that black people in Africa are bad because they are over represented in Africa. In cases where the minority has been given (rather than taken) power through colonial or religious politics, it has been an humanitarian disaster (Rwanda being one of the more extreme cases which resulted in the genocide of one tribe over another)
For there to be a majority and for that majority to insist that democracy is respected is not supremacy of one group over another as there is no belief of superiority, it is a belief that democracy be respected as a human right.
If the majority group hold a particular opinion, in the case of Brexit that sovereignty of the cultural group be respected and immigration needs to be controlled, that is not supremacy of one group over another. It is democracy which is believed to be a human right.
If the majority group feel that their demographic is being deliberately changed by a supremacist group of elites and object to it, that is not supremacy that is democracy which is believed to be a human right.
It is only in totalitarian states where a minority rules over a majority, where the minority is elevated to greater importance and privilege over a majority group (supremacy). We see this today in the UK where groups of Muslims are allowed to practise Sharia Law counter to the law of the land that every other person lives by – Sharia Law of polygamy, honour killings, FGM, marginalising and oppression of women, attitudes towards sex, attitudes to other cultures and religions.
We see racially motivated crime towards white people not pursued by the law, however, racially motivated crime by white people towards any other ethnic group receiving up to 35 years in prison.
More than that, what we are seeing in the west is a particular group, namely white people who are being singled out and demonised through revisionist history and post truth word usage such as racism and white supremacy to silence the objection of the group to being marginalised and delegitimised by virtue of skin colour in favour of the minority group(s), whilst increasing the hatred towards the group by the minority group.
When we start to see demonetisation of a group in this way, it often leads to genocide, a soft form of which has been active for many years in the break down of family structures and communities, religion, the dramatic fall in birth rates, discouragement of breeding through narratives of ‘over population’ whilst increasing immigration due to ‘under population’, promotion of pleasure as the core human drive for sex over reproduction, sexual politics etc
UN definition [of genocide]
The term was coined in 1943 by the Jewish-Polish lawyer Raphael Lemkin who combined the Greek word “genos” (race or tribe) with the Latin word “cide” (to kill).
After witnessing the horrors of the Holocaust, in which every member of his family except his brother was killed, Dr Lemkin campaigned to have genocide recognised as a crime under international law.
His efforts gave way to the adoption of the UN Convention on Genocide in December 1948, which came into effect in January 1951.
Article Two of the convention defines genocide as “any of the following acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such”:
- Killing members of the group
- Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group
- Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part
- Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group
- Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group
Whilst I am taking it to the furthest extreme (one hopes the road we are on changes before we get there) – it is none the less a reality that today in the west the majority ethnic population of white people are being targeted, that their vote is now demonised as anti democratic and supremacist if it doesn’t follow an apologist narrative and voluntarily give up their cultures, languages, traditions, beliefs and their land to others and accept the superiority of others and their right to be so.
As mentioned before, minority rule has never worked on ethnic, religious or cultural basis. Currently there 87.2% white people (2011 census) in the UK. That at least 50% of them are now feeling under pressure (democratically deligitimised, socially marginalised, ethnically demonised) where they haven’t felt it before, means that this trend is set to increase so long as the policies of the elitist establishment are pursued.
