What is a white supremacist?

What is a white supremacist? By John Ray.

The Left neither define “white supremacist” nor prove that there were any at Charlottesville. We are apparently required to take them at their word and not question any part of it. But what if it was fake news?

Let us then attempt a definition so that we can go on and sanely discuss the matter. Let us say that a white supremacist is someone who believes that whites are supreme in the world. …

From the industrial revolution of a couple of hundred years or so ago whites have dominated everything. From steam trains to nuclear reactors, practically every innovation has come from whites. And whites have used those innovations to assist their mastery of what was happening in the world. Other races tagged along and imitated whites to various degrees but it is white civilization that has made the running. It has been and still is dominant.

So in mentioning that plain truth am I a white supremacist? … I cannot see that I am doing any more than describing reality. …

I think that white supremacy is a passing phase. I think that by the end of this century China will be supreme in most ways. I may be wrong but that is what I see as the trend. …

Which brings me to another possible definition of a white supremacist — someone who thinks that whites SHOULD be supreme. … I suppose there are some people who think that whites should fight to remain supreme — attack China maybe. Good luck with that. That would be insanity.

So who or where are these white supremacists that the media talk about? There were about two marchers who carried swastika flags, so are they the ones?

As it happens, I know a bit about neo-Nazis so maybe I can help there. I did an extensive study of them some years ago, the results of which appeared in Jewish academic journals. See here and here. So I have a very good idea of what modern-day Nazis think. And they know very well that whites are already supreme. So what they want is to preserve that from attack and undermining. They want it acknowledged and defended. They also don’t like Jews of course.

But take away the antisemitism and what you have is actually a form of patriotism. But instead of being supportive of one nation, they are supportive of a group of (white) nations: Rather like what the EU aims at. …

As far as I can tell, the Charlottesville marchers were also defensive. They didn’t want part of their culture attacked and subjugated to a new “politically correct” ideology.

For most Americans, political correctness only nibbles at the edges of their lives so they feel no need to go out and march against it but we must expect that some people will resent the nibbling and see a need to protest against it. And that is what we saw at Charlottesville as far as I can tell. There were NO white supremacists there. But there were there people who wanted their traditions, customs and beliefs respected and defended.
