It doesn't seem to me that you run into white supremacists in the wild, even in the seedier parts of the web. The folks in the ethnostate camp are fairly common, but then that's the normal state of humanity.

I'd say that the invention of the farm tractor put paid to the notion of outright dominance, the profit is gone. Servants will just steal the silverware anyway.

I do rather like the torture of logic that sez patriotism -> nationalism -> ethnonationalism ->neo-Nazi -> Nazi -> kills 6 million jews, but it's a convenient bit of fiction from the people that invented 'climate denier'.

The truth is, if someone feels no tie to their state, why should I in turn watch out for them? If it's just one big planet, you might as well give your tax dollars to the billions of people who are truly destitute, not some single mother on the Ridge.

(as a side note, there were times when the Soviet Union, a decent stand-in for 'communism', was highly ethnically oriented. It was a recipe that they worked on for some time)

,,,A handwritten letter written by Albert Einstein warning of the dangers of growing nationalism and anti-Semitism years before the Nazis rose to power has been sold for nearly $40,000.

,,,The discovery and sale of the letter comes as governments in Europe grapple with a new rise of nationalistic and far-right sentiment -- one which U.S. President Donald Trump appears to embrace.

The Jews will not replace us!!! chants of trumpski's '''fine people''' and the rise of nationalism,,,Einstein saw the writing on the wall...

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

— Genesis 11:1–9[10]

George - you are being far too kind to M(oron). In order to be able to connect dots, you need to find more than one dot. M hasn't found even one yet. He just swings wildly hoping at some point he might stumble onto some sort of truth.
But hey - you keep swinging M. It's good cardio.

,,,why look Scotto makes his first post and and it is only to adhominum attack someone,,,pathetic that he has nothing to contribute,,,needy for attention tonight Scotto???

Keep swinging, M - you're sure to hit something eventually.

Give M his 2:33p point about the unitary world of early Christiandom. Somehow I don't think he would be happy in a unitary world with Jesus Christ at the center. Likewise, he should be able to see how the rest of us don't want that same kind of unitary world with Karl Marx at the center. L

'Nationalism unites; tribalism divides.' I added this tag line to my commentary as it so succinctly highlights the difference in the intents of the pro-American Right and the anti-American Left. The latter's continuing introduction of additional tribal identities in our land is designed to thwart assimilation of our 'pluribus' into an 'unum', and therefore prepare the resulting disoriented, contentious, and weakened America to accede to a global government in order to restore social order, no matter the cost in liberty, individualism, and enterprise.

Looks like FaceBook is in a nasty fight with George Soros. The left is eating its own. Could not happen to people and companies that deserved it more.

Nationalism vs. Globalism

In a 2016 column defending globalism, Never-Trumper Kevin Williamson was equally contemptuous. “The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles,” he wrote. “Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin.”

What should happen to such Americans and their towns? “The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die,” Williams asserted.

Such arrogance and conceit should surprise no one. It is emblematic of globalists for whom the “net plus” of international trade, unfettered immigration, and open borders, is a reasonable price to pay for the diminution of national identity and democracy — and the evisceration of patriotism.

National interests that are anathema to the globalist agenda. Thus, a United Nations dominated by thugs, dictators, communists, and socialists has released a report calling for the silencing of anyone who objects to the globalist agenda. According to the UN, nationalism poses a “sobering threat to racial equality by fueling discrimination, intolerance and the creation of institutions and structures that will have enduring legacies of racial exclusion.”

Circling the wagons around the barn. Short link just repeats what has already been said.

“Patriotism is a philosophy of national values: It is a statement that your nation has values that are eternal, true and noble. American patriotism prizes God-given individual rights protected by limited government. Were America to lose God-given individual rights protected by limited government, it would no longer be America. But patriotism doesn’t mean that it is the job of America to spread our values everywhere else to the detriment of our own national strength. Our patriotism encompasses American nationalism: We believe that America must come first so that America can be strong enough to promote her values where appropriate.

“The opposite of nationalism, then, isn’t patriotism. It’s internationalism, or the idea that all human beings share similar values, and that, therefore, borders and national interests are irrelevant. That philosophy is utterly foolish and dangerous. Simply view tape of thousands of radical Muslims marching in Pakistan to protest the acquittal of a Christian woman from charges of blasphemy and realize that not all people believe the same things.

“Nationalism, then, isn’t the problem. Lack of values is. And mistaking anti-nationalism for a value system in and of itself endangers free citizens who hold worthwhile national values dear.”

Bill Tozer

Oh yeah. Short link.

“Trump’s ideas are not ideological but rooted in our country’s history.

“America was born between the end of the French and Indian War, the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the ratification of the Constitution in 1788. Both the general who led us in the Revolution and the author of that declaration became president. Both put America first. And both counseled their countrymen to avoid “entangling” or “permanent” alliances with any other nation, as we did for 160 years.

“Were George Washington and Thomas Jefferson lacking in patriotism?

“Was de Gaulle lacking in patriotism?

“By declaring American nationalists anti-patriotic, Macron has asserted a claim to the soon-to-be-vacant chair of Angela Merkel.”

Nationalism......a “Hate Crime”?

Nonsense!

You want a Hate Crime......

Yes......I’m pretty sure that’s my dog......and the charges......sounds like something he would do.

The question answers itself........


MS-13 terrorized Mendota for nearly a decade. Why didn’t help come sooner?

President Trump’s administration has targeted murderous gang MS-13, but the federal government hasn’t helped the town of Mendota CA in their fight against the criminals, say former and current city leaders.


I’m sure that the Obama administration felt that those future democrats needed the opportunity to express themselves culturally in their new land!

In reading the article further it dawned on me that Mendota received the same level of indifference that the Obama administration usually reserved for "flyover" country! I guess President "Billion Dollar Brand" was to busy fleshing out the precepts of being President "Billion Dollar Brand" to be concerned .....or maybe that was right around "Beer Summit" time?
