White Nationalists Have Been Saying 'Diversity Is Not Our Strength' For Years

Here’s Brimelow at a recent conference of the National Policy Institute, the “think tank” of the so-called “alt-right,” a loose association of fascists and white supremacists. That’s him second from the left, in between his white nationalist pals Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor:

And in 2007, Gordon Baum, co-founder and then-CEO of the racist group Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC) — whose website has referred to blacks as “a retrograde species of humanity” — told the Birmingham News that “diversity is not our strength, it is our calamity, our downfall.”

“Diversity is not our strength” has been seen on white nationalist fliers in Pennsylvania. There’s also a whole thread called “Diversity is not our strength” on the popular white supremacist hate site Stormfront

And variations of the phrase appear most commonly today on alt-right Twitter accounts, often paired with cherry-picked news stories of non-white people committing crimes. 

Mark Pitcavage, senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, told HuffPost that the phrase isn’t a white supremacist slogan, “as much as it is an obvious thing for them to say.” 

It’s a response to hearing liberal politicians and academics praise diversity, he said. And the phrase isn’t the sole provenance of self-proclaimed white supremacists. There are hard-right figures and anti-immigration groups, some of them bordering on extremist, who have used the phrase. 

Not only does that [phrase] speak against the whole American experiment, it sends a clear message to anybody who is not white or is in some way a minority. Mark Pitcavage, senior research fellow at the ADL’s Center on Extremism

Co-founder of Vice Media, Gavin McInnes, the “Alt-Lite” figure and self-proclaimed “western chauvinist” founder of the Proud Boys has also used it. In a video posted earlier this year, he talks about how he thinks other countries’ food is yucky, and he really doesn’t like it! The video was titled “Diversity is NOT our strength (and shut up about restaurants).”

And Michael Anton, the controversial White House aide selected by President Donald Trump to serve on the National Security Council, used the phrase last year in an essay in which he defended the America First Committee, a World War II-era isolationist group known for its anti-Semitism.

“‘Diversity’ is not ‘our strength;’ it’s a source of weakness, tension and disunion,” Anton wrote. “America is not a ‘nation of immigrants’; we are originally a nation of settlers, who later chose to admit immigrants, and later still not to, and who may justly open or close our doors solely at our own discretion, without deference to forced pieties.”

Pitcavage said it’s alarming to see an elected official like Rep. King make the statement. 

“It’s problematic, first of all because it suggests that diversity is a bad thing, which suggests that people should work to remove diversity,” Pitcavage said. “Not only does that speak against the whole American experiment, it sends a clear message to anybody who is not white or is in some way a minority or is not part of whatever selected pool Mr. King approves of.” 

“How are his constituents supposed to feel?” he continued. “He’s from Iowa. Iowa is not the most diverse state in the country, but there are people of different faiths and ethnicities and he’s supposed to represent them.”  

Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project, which monitors hate groups, says she’s heard white supremacists say the “diversity is not our strength” expression since at least 1999, when she joined the SPLC. 

King, she said, “clearly is a racist who shares some views with white nationalists on things like immigrants for example.” 

King has a long history of signaling support of white nationalism. He keeps a Confederate flag on his desk, even though he is from Iowa, which was not part of the Confederacy. He has said America shouldn’t apologize for slavery. He  has called putting emancipator Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill “racist” and “sexist.” He, of course, has indulged in birther beliefs, once suggesting President Barack Obama was born in Kenya. 

[Steve King] clearly is a racist who shares some views with white nationalists on things like immigrants for example. Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project

Racial profiling in Ferguson, Missouri, during protests over the police shooting of Michael Brown, King once said, was not an issue because all the protesters were of the same “continental origin.” He has argued that most undocumented immigrants are “drug mules.” 

“For every [undocumented immigrant] who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds—and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” he said. 

He once tweeted a photo of himself standing with Geert Wilders, the rabidly Islamophobic far-right Dutch politician, with the caption: “Cultural suicide by demographic transformation must end.” 

And in March of this year, King tweeted “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” 

This prompted gushing praise from white nationalists. “Steve King is basically an open white nationalist at this point,” Andrew Anglin wrote on his popular white supremacist site, The Daily Stormer. 

“OUR civilization and SOMEBODY ELSE’S babies. Not really any nuance there,” Anglin wrote. “Steve King should be Speaker of the House. Period. There [sic] is as plain as the nose on your face. He is /ourguy/.”

Richard Spencer, the alt-right figurehead, wrote that “King is more /ourguy/ than Trump has ever been, but would he be saying these kinds of things without Trump? We can only hope these kinds of statements serve to embolden more of our people, as they see that people like themselves are in positions of power.”  

And David Duke, the former KKK leader, called for King to succeed Trump as president in 2024 to “finish the job.” 

King’s office did not immediately respond to a HuffPost inquiry Saturday as to whether he considers himself a white nationalist. 

America does not do a good job of tracking incidents of hate and bias. We need your help to create a database of such incidents across the country, so we all know what’s going on. Tell us your story.

TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES






TRUMP WHITE HOUSE WEIGHING PLANS FOR PRIVATE SPIES TO COUNTER “DEEP STATE” ENEMIES


December 5th, 2017

Via: The Intercept:

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state� enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Trump’s presidency.

The creation of such a program raises the possibility that the effort would be used to create an intelligence apparatus to justify the Trump administration’s political agenda.

“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,� said a former senior U.S. intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals, in describing White House discussions. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,� this person said, meaning the intelligence collected would not be shared with the rest of the CIA or the larger intelligence community. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.�

‘Will and Grace:’ ‘Santa’s Just Another Old White Perv We Once Trusted’

It’s that magical time of year when network television airs Christmas-themed episodes of their regularly programmed shows. In the episode titled “A Gay Olde Christmas” that aired December 5, NBC’s Will and Grace even managed to include a swipe at Santa Claus. Regular viewers know that from the first episode going forward, it seems the whole reason for bringing back this show is to bash Trump and conservatives in general. A quick shot at the president via his father made its way into this week’s Christmas show, too.

The show opens with Will (Eric McCormack) complaining about the wait time for a table at the restaurant chosen for the annual Christmas Eve dinner with Grace (Debra Messing), Karen (Megan Mullally) and Jack (Sean Hayes). He is full of the bah-humbug spirit and cynically says, ”It’s not going to snow, there’s no such thing as miracles, Christmas is for spoiled rich kids, and – and – and Santa’s just another old white perv we once trusted.” They leave the restaurant and find a museum open, as Grace has to use the restroom.

Browsing through a book at the Immigrant Historical Society, Will ponders life in New York in an earlier time. “You’d walk down the street and say, ‘Merry Christmas, sir,’ and he’d say, ‘Same to you. I like the shape of your mustache.’ And I’d say, ‘I like yours, too.’” Lol! Will’s a nerd but this moves the story to a trip in the way back machine.

The gang goes back to 1912 and the story of an Irish immigrant, as the screenshot illustrates, Mrs. Karolyn O’Sullivan. Karolyn (played by Megan Mullally) is a widow with many children at home. She lives in a rat-infested tenement owned by wealthy real estate investor, Mr. Billam Van Billioms (Eric McCormack). He is a businessman and expects rent, even if it is Christmas. Mrs. O’Sullivan can’t scrape the money together and he threatens her with eviction.

Billiam’s wife, Fanny (Debra Messing) isn’t having it. She protests him turning the O’Sullivan family out on Christmas. This is where the Trump reference goes in.

 

 

Fanny: Billam, wait. I cannot let you put these poor people out on the street on Christmas. It’s not fair.

Billam: The gentleman I acquired this property from says the poor have only themselves to blame, and I have yet to disagree with anything out of the mouth of Mr. Frederick Trump.

Pretty lame reference to Trump, if you ask me. Using his father and implying he’s a heartless wealthy man. Not very original.

Will’s fantasy of wonderful days past turns sour as they realize that women, gays, and immigrants would not have thought it was a wonderful time. Again, this seems too obvious. Any glance at a history book would educate the reader of the struggles women had for the rights men enjoyed. And history books are full of stories about the struggles of immigrants coming to America to pursue their dreams.

At the end, Will reflects, ”Well, you know what, I’m done complaining that things used to be better. They weren’t. I mean, they’re not great now, but we do have a lot to be thankful for.” See, Will? Miracles do happen. You learned something after all. And, don’t call Santa a “perv.”

Showtime’s ‘Shameless’ Calls Out White Guilt of ‘Liberal Elite’

Shameless follows a large working-class family whose youngest child, Liam, is black and in a private elementary school. In the December 3 episode of the Showtime offering, “The (Mis)Education of Liam Fergus Beircheart Gallagher,” the school gives the kids a test with basic word association. Unfortunately, Liam fails the test, which his dad Frank (William H. Macy) thinks is due to the cultural bias inherent in the wealthy school being out-of-touch with working-class families like his. This leads to him trying to teach the school about regular people and Liam about using the guilt of the “liberal elite” against them.

For example, when given the question “Jennifer [BLANKED] the glue and finished the project,” Liam crossed out the multiple choice options and wrote in “sniffed.” He was also asked, “The front door is to the foyer as the back door is to…” to which Liam wrote, “Penis.” School officials call Frank in to the school to discuss the answers with him, as you can see in the screenshot, and he asks them, “How the hell would he know what a foyer is? What are we, the Rockefellers?” The school says, “These questions are standardized across the private school curriculum–” “To favor the students who understand the references,” Frank interrupts. “This is cultural bias. You’ll put his face on your brochure, but you ignore his background.” 

Frank is concerned they’re using Liam’s photo, presumably because he’s black, but they don’t really care about his family’s working-class roots. I have a lot of concerns, but they aren’t quite the same as Frank’s. Of course, the questions shouldn’t exclude any kids, but a multiple-choice quiz is fairly straightforward and Liam should know to choose from the list. More worrying is the words he is adding, especially in the last question. I worry about what’s happening at home if he is choosing to add the word “penis” in this case. The child is clearly being exposed to conversations (at least) that he should not be. 

Later, Frank tries to explain to young Liam where the other parents are coming from.

 

 

Frank: “The victorious strategist seeks battle after the victory has been won, while he who is destined to defeat first fights and seeks victory afterwards.” Hmm. 
Liam: Are we at war? 
Frank: Yes, we are, son. You’re, um… Probably a little young for this, but I’m gonna plant a seed here. Those rich, white, liberal parents at your school were once radicals. Rebels. Renegades. At some point, they fell in step with societal expectations and became robots. So when they look at us, loudmouthed, antiestablishment, unafraid to confront the power structures, they feel alive. So… we gotta take advantage of that. Right? 
Liam: Right.

Frank is completely right. So many liberals are wealthy and white (just look at who ran for the presidential nomination on that side versus the Republicans) and used to be radicals. They agitated on campuses for free speech and marched for freedom decades ago. Now, they are the very embodiment of the establishment, like the “robots” Frank calls them. It’s pretty funny to see it called out on television. 

One of the mothers approaches Frank and says, “The parents have assembled a committee to eliminate cultural bias in standardized testing. We’re petitioning Congress to support the Every Student Succeeds Act, and we’re instituting a round table to open each exam question to multiple interpretations based on ethnic and economic considerations.”

Later, the school takes another look at Liam’s test and marks the answers correct. Why? As Frank tells him, “Standing up for our principles worked. You see, this is the point I’m making with the liberal elite. In the war between the have-nots and the have-everythings, their guilt is our ammunition. Never forget that.” 

Using liberal guilt to lower school standards even more – now that’s shameless … but extremely effective.

Trump mocked over empty seats White House Christmas Tree Lighting

The Trump White House drew mockery this week from critics who were quick to notice empty seats at the annual White House Christmas Tree Lighting event on Thursday night.

A photo first posted by ABC reporter Steve Rudin began making the rounds on social media as it seemed to show a surprising number of empty seats in the crowd at the Thursday event, which was held on the grounds of the White House.

Video of the 95th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting appears to show everyone in good spirits, and even a packed crowd.

But critics on Twitter were quick to find parallels between the empty chairs at President Donald Trump’s tree lighting and his less-than-packed inauguration.

Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel invoked the words of Sean Spicer.

“This is the largest crowd that has ever attended a National Tree Lighting in history. Period!” he wrote. 

CNN’s Jim Acosta also noticed the empty seats. 

“I’m starting to think people really don’t like President Trump,” he tweeted. 

CNN has been a frequent target of criticism from the Trump White House, and the outlet is planning to skip the White House’s holiday party for the press this year. 

Trump has repeatedly called for a return to wishing others a Merry Christmas insisting there is a quote “war on Christmas.”

"White People are an Abomination" Posters show up in America, No media outrage









 






So let’s get this straight! When “It’s okay to be White” posters show up, the media, the leftists and basically ALL non-white people go crazy screaming at the top of their rotten lungs: “DATS RAYSIST!!!” when in fact there is nothing racist in being white! WTF does that even mean??? Racist for saying its ok to be white? Is that like saying its NOT ok to be white??? So if its NOT ok to be white then what should we do? Kill ourselves so that you colored people be happy? Not gonna happen.

And now that posters saying “white people are an abomination, white DNA is an abomination” and “WHITE IS OVER” like calling for mass genocide…. umm complete silence, no one sees anything, no one says anything. No media outrage, not even the right is protesting, nothing, just a couple of crickets singing…

Seriously? At this point, why do we whites even care what white traitors and non-whites think about us, say about us, what they want from us or expect from us? If a white person would have put up such a poster against brown Mexicans for example, saying that Mexicants are abominations and that their DNA is defective and that they should be exterminated, lots and lots of white-knights would have condemned that white person, apologizing like stupid retarded children as if THEY personally put up the poster…

Yet not a single non-white has condemned this poster, let alone apologize in his name. So at this point, why do white people even care??? We have reached a point of no return, whites must stop caring what non-whites and white traitors who align themselves with the non-whites even say or want. Whites must separate by any means necessary because this is too far. This goes to show that if these browns would have the power, they would kills us like cattle so God forbid we ever loose control of our countries because its gonna be Zimbabwe spelled allover the place.

You cannot pacify these people, they hate us and they want us gone, not just from America or Europe, no they want us gone as in DEAD. Dead, buried and with them pissing on our graves. These people are like spawns of Demons. Perhaps that’s their origins anyway since God created Adam who was a white man with red hair. His very name ADAM translates as “RUDDY”. The word ‘ruddy’ means ‘having a fresh, healthy red color’, and is associated with the ability to blush. There is only one type of man that has ruddy cheeks and is capable of blushing and that is the white man.

‘Blushing’ is a hot, red flushing of the cheeks unique to white people when they feel humility, shame or embarrassment, and is often associated with an inability to hold the head up and bear another’s gaze. Clearly browns cannot blush, not even Asians can blush. Darwin described blushing as ‘the most peculiar and most human of all expressions’.

We know then that the Nephilim came and mixed with humans, perhaps that’s where those non-whites originate from. Then we had Noah’s flood when all those subhumans were wiped off but how did they reappear? Did more angels fall? Nobody knows but clearly, these people are like demon spawns hell bent on wiping God’s Adamic race of people. This is like their only goal in life, to wipe us off by any means necessary, race mixing, encouraging us not to have children or simply murder.

Should we all move to another planet and give Earth in its entirety to these 80 IQed people, they would still not be happy and scream at the sky “Whites, wherever you are, you are racist, you need to die! Its because of you, this and that and bla bla bla! Brothers we must invent a spaceship and go after them wherever they are and kill them! Its their fault! Bla bla bla!!!!!!! BLAAAA!!!! WHITES!!! BLA BLA BLA!!!”

We have the power, we have the brains, should we stand up, those leftist cockroaches will tremble at our feet begging for forgiveness.

So after this long rant, here’s a bunch of details about this really enraging story, if you don’t get angry after this then you must be really defective and you might as well put an end to your miserable useless life:

Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.”

“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student columnist Rudy Martinez begins the op-ed, which The University Star has not posted on its website.

The piece documents Martinez’s personal opinion of “whiteness” and “white people,” which he defines to include anyone who is “a descendant of those Europeans who chose to abandon their identity in search of something ‘new’—stolen land.”

Contending that racial categories “are used to subjugate non-white people,” Martinez complains that “in Texas, a bizarre state I have now inhabited for four years, I continuously meet individuals that either deny the existence of white privilege or fail to do something productive with it.”

Addressing white classmates, he asserts that “you were not born white,” but rather “became white” and “actively remain white” through “allegiance to a country that was never great.”

Martinez then warns white people that “the oppressive world you have built…is coming apart at the seams,” describing Donald Trump as the last gasp of white supremacy.

The things is you Martinez or your brown brothers don’t have to take part of our “oppressive world” you could have stayed in Mexico. We don’t want you here in America, that’s why we oppress you!

“Through the current political climate, in which a white supremacist inhabits the White House and those of his ilk would try to prove otherwise, I see white people as an aberration,” he declares. “Through a constant, ideological struggle in which we aim to deconstruct ‘whiteness’ and everything attached to it, we will win.”

Until then, however, Martinez offers one final message for white people.

“Remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist,” he concludes. “You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.”

Student Body President Connor Clegg told Campus Reform that he believes the article is an “embarrassment” to his school.

“I’m the first person who will stand up for the First Amendment any day of the week,” he said, “but when students are required to pay into a school paper like this which espouses these racist views, then I certainly think some action needs to be taken against this so-called reporter/columnist.”

Clegg also pointed out that the editors of the Star share accountability for publishing the op-ed, suggesting they should have exercised more discretion before deciding to run it.

“Ultimately, editors are the gatekeepers who have final say over these things so we need to look at that as well,” he argued. “I mean the rhetoric sounded like something that would come out of Hitler’s mouth—not to be extreme but it’s undeniable. ‘I hate you because you shouldn’t exist?’ I mean come on. Whoever let that type of material get published should certainly be looked at.”

The Star’s Editor-in-Chief, Denise Cervantes, addressed that line of reasoning in an editor’s notepublished on the paper’s website Tuesday night, though as of press time there was still no digital version of the original op-ed.

“The University Star’s opinion pages are a forum for students to express and debate ideas,” Cervantes noted. “While our publication does not endorse every opinion put forth by student columnists or guest contributors, as the editor I take responsibility for what is printed on our pages.”

While he acknowledged that the op-ed had generated “widespread criticism” from readers, including “many expressing that they find the author’s ideas to be racist,” Cervantes sought to portray the matter as a misunderstanding.

“The original intent of the column was to comment on the idea of race and racial identities. We acknowledge that the column could have been clearer in its message and that it has caused hurt within our campus community,” the editor’s note concluded. “We apologize and hope that we can move forward to a place of productive dialogue on ways to bring our community together.”

Not all students accept that argument, however, saying it should have been clear to the editors from the outset that the piece was intended primarily as a racial provocation.

Savanna Gabrielle, a Latina student and Turning Point USA member, told Campus Reform that she “couldn’t believe that my university, [which] supposedly supports different cultures and races, actually published that in the newspaper,” saying, “I feel like the writer wrote it in order to gain recognition and hopefully create a resistance to the ‘white race,’ but what he ultimately created was the beginnings of another Hitler.”

Texas State student Andrew Homann, a former chief of staff for the Texas Federation of College Republicans who once served as Texas State Student Body President, offered a similar assessment, drawing a distinction between the author’s right to freely express his views and the newspaper’s right to exercise editorial discretion.

“I am saddened by the fact that The University Star, my school’s paper funded by tuition and tax dollars, would give a platform to racism, bigotry and hatred,” he told Campus Reform. “While this individual has every right to express his disgusting world-view, this rhetoric does not belong in any publication, anywhere.”
