White Right Wing men are terrorist in America, not Mexicans. Not immigrants. Not Muslims.

White conservative men are radicalized by Trump and Right Wing media. They are domestic. They are Christian.

If you listen to white conservatives, they project their violence and hatred onto others, create boogeyman, and never take responsibility for their indoctrination and inciting of white terrorists.

Our biggest problem in America is ‘white men with guns’ groomed by GOP rhetoric and made insecure by failed conservative values on masculinity.

  1. Hi Scottie;
    At the risk of being really dark…… I think I’ve figured it out. We were wrong all along. Trump and the republican fail committee are absolute genius! We keep having these white terrorists until Mexico quite willingly builds the damn wall themselves.

    wtf 😦

    • Hello Randy. 🤣😂😎 I remember being overseas in the 1980’s. I would say most of us service members were well respected, but many were seen as the “ugly American”. Idiots who thought they were greater than any other nationality, who thought every country should do as the US did, that the US was the only true civilized country…you get the idea. Now other countries really do not want us visiting. Canada is talking about taking steps to handle the problem on its southern border. Hugs

  2. I agree that America needs to address this problem and “thoughts and prayers” isn’t a solution.

    • Hello Ospreyshire. I agree. Thoughts and prayers is a way of wanting to be seen like you are doing something without having to actually do anything. Hugs

    • Hello Nan. Funny I thought the problem was caused video games, lack of being forced to publicly pray in a way demanded by authority, lack of teaching the bible in public schools regardless of a person’s religion, mental illness, and a lack of guns being openly carried by everyone from age three and up. Well that is what the “blame anything but the real problem” crowd claims. Hugs

  5. Playing the race card never fixes the problem. Ever.

    • Hello Lester. This is a statement of fact. No playing any cards. Please look at the mass shooters over the years. They are white males. Hard to argue with facts. Hugs

  6. Is this really true Scottie? Do you really thing the biggest problem in America right now is “white men with guns”, or is this a DNC narrative you just happened to pick up off CNN? Everyone born on this earth has the capacity to do evil, we are all capable of committing the unthinkable. What does race have to do with any of this?

  7. Not to mention 36% of Americans are “white men!” Obviously we don’t see women carrying out these shootings, of whom make up apromixmately 50% of the country. Based on what I have stated, of course white men are more likely to commit these heinous crimes, but that’s not to say all white men are racist people with the lifelong intent to kill other people! You obviously have let other people determine for you what is objective and true, instead of researching it yourself. What a pity.

    • Hello Dylan. I have researched this. Sorry you don’t like the facts. If you say we have to ban Muslims until we can figure out why they are a threat, when the real threat is white men, shouldn’t we ban white men from owning guns until we can figure it out? The pity Dylan is that people put preconceived notions of not even recognized assumed privilege over the objective facts.

      You are adding apples to oranges trying to get bananas. No one said

      …all white men are racist people with the lifelong intent to kill other people.

      You feeling persecuted? Where you got that I have no idea. That is deflection hyperbole.

      Dylan, do you really want to have a talk about this? We can if you wish. But lets not start with insults. Lets start with the idea we have our views and we shall compare them, and get to the true facts. Lets leave the insults out of it. The idea that All of any group will do such a thing is rather silly don’t you think? Not ALL priest rape kids but a large enough portion do to clearly state it is a serious problem the Catholic church has. See the point? Hugs

  8. Scottie, we are talking about an issue here supposedly. If the “New York Times” (a former newspaper), not to mention every other far left media outlet says that homeland security reports that white supremacy is on the rise, what are we to do? Personally, I don’t think “white supremacy” is growing at all. In 1920 the KKK was had 4 million nationwide members, now it has somewhere between 3-5K. If you think white supremacist domestic terrorism is a major problem, why don’t you start suggesting what we do about it. Stop indentifying problems that I would say hardly exist and then provide no solution for them. I want to know, what do you suggest we do If this problem really exists?

    • Hello Dylan. Again you can not help yourself from coloring things can you? The New York Times is a newspaper regardless if you like it or not. It is a functioning media company that makes money providing reporting to subscribers and a few others. That is reality, and it doesn’t change because you don’t like the content.

      OK Let look at your idea that white supremacy is not on the rise using KKK stats. The fact is that the KKK was nearly a shadow of it’s former self nationally.

      The Great Depression in the 1930s depleted the Klan’s membership ranks, and the organization temporarily disbanded in 1944. The civil rights movement of the 1960s saw a surge of local Klan activity across the South, including the bombings, beatings and shootings of black and white activists. These actions, carried out in secret but apparently the work of local Klansmen, outraged the nation and helped win support for the civil rights cause. In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson delivered a speech publicly condemning the Klan and announcing the arrest of four Klansmen in connection with the murder of a white female civil rights worker in Alabama. The cases of Klan-related violence became more isolated in the decades to come, though fragmented groups became aligned with neo-Nazi or other right-wing extremist organizations from the 1970s onward. In the early 1990s, the Klan was estimated to have between 6,000 and 10,000 active members, mostly in the Deep South.

      This article also reinforces that the KKK is in decline. https://www.adl.org/education/resources/reports/state-of-the-kkk

      Great problem solved…only no. We are talking white supremacy / white nationalism not the KKK. For clarity I will use the term white nationalist to include both groups as they are the same. To say that white nationalize is declining because the KKK is doing so is to say that because there is a snowstorm climate change is not real.

      Maybe this site can help you. https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/2019/year-hate-rage-against-change

      I can give you article after article on the rise of white nationalist terrorism and violence. You can also with a simply google search.

      Dylan you are part of the problem when you say they hardly exist. Yet you may claim other threats are super real like immigration, progressive policies, even wealthy distribution. ( you don’t want to go there as it has been aggressively applied to move money from the lower classes to the upper incomes and taking the treasury income to distribute the highest incomes. Facts are pesky things )

      Dylan if you read my blog you would see what I think we need to do as a country. We need education both on social media and schools about how wrong racism is. We need to emphasis how race is mostly a social construct as there are no pure races anymore. Every white supremacists not only has ancestors who started in Africa but are mixed race to a degree themselves.

      Gun control is a needed factor in taking violence out of our country. Yes people can hurt other people with knives and brass knuckles, but they can not harm dozens of people and kill nine in thirty seconds like the shooter in Dayton did with a gun with a 100 round drum.

      OK Dylan. I have done a lot of the work so far in this discussion. I have answered your questions. You need to now step up.

      Do you really think racism has declined? If so why? Do you think the current rhetoric from the administration is racist and why ( or why not )

      I have shown that racism is on the rise and we have not addressed other rising bigotries, what is your solution to the problem of racial inequality? Hugs

      • I will reply with a rather simple question. If gun control works, what do call Chicago? Have you the stats there lately? Black people are shooting each other at enormous rates, much higher than those we have seen in other parts of the U.S, except they have the most heaviest gun control regulations? Secondly, what defines a hate group? What is needed to constitute a functioning “hate group?”

        • Hello Dylan. Oh yes, Chicago, the old chestnut thrown out by those against gun control regulations. Well lets see, Chicago is a island surrounded by a high wall and beyond that is a huge ocean on all sides, right? The fact is it is easy to get around the cities gun control regulations. A short car ride away are sellers without the restrictions of the city. There are a lot of urban myths about Chicago and gun violence, including how strict the gun control laws are. They are not true. Here is a link for you as I wont copy the whole report.

          https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/The-Myths-and-Truths-About-Chicagos-Guns-and-Murder-Rate-502480821.html

          Here are a few quotes though.

          IS CHICAGO THE NATION’S MURDER CAPITAL?

          No. This is a common misconception based partly on the national attention Chicago has attracted in recent years. The Pew Research Center reported in November that when adjusting for population, Chicago has recorded fewer murders per capita than many other smaller U.S. cities. Chicago ranked 14th among cities with at least 100,000 people in 2017. FBI statistics released this fall found St. Louis had the highest murder rate in 2017 — 66.1 homicides per 100,000 people. The Pew report said Chicago did have the highest actual number of homicides in the past few years. In 2016, there were 762 homicides. Last year, homicides dropped to 650. As of Dec. 6, there were 534.

          DOES CHICAGO HAVE THE TOUGHEST GUN LAWS IN THE NATION?

          No. Trump and his administration have wrongly made this assertion . Chicago passed a ban on handgun ownership in 1982. Those who’d already purchased and registered their handguns were allowed to keep them. In 2010, the ban was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court, and in 2013, Illinois became the last state in the nation to approve concealed carry.

          And one more.

          WHAT ARE THE SOURCES OF ILLEGAL CHICAGO GUNS?

          According to the Trace Report, about 40 percent of illegally used or possessed firearms recovered in Chicago from 2013 to 2016 came from dealers in Illinois. The remaining 60 percent came from states with less regulation over firearms. Indiana accounted for about 1 in 5 of these weapons, followed by Mississippi and Wisconsin. The report says these trends have been consistent over the past decade. In the same time span, seven gun or sporting goods stores in Illinois were the top 10 source dealers of recovered weapons in Chicago. Three others were in Indiana.

          As to your hate group question.

          A hate group is a social group that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, nation, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or any other designated sector of society.

          Be well. Hugs
