it's called a dogwhistle, a subtle nod to specific groups of people while remaining plausible deniability from any wrongdoing.
Trump has been doing this for a very very long time. Conservatives are either to stupid to realize he's dogwhistling. or They actively know he is and like that he's racist, because they themselves are racist.
Dogwhistling has been around for hundreds of years. it's not some conspiracy or wacky theory. lots of demagogues use dog-whistling to send radical messages to people from within polite society.
"Dog whistling" isn't quite accurate - it implies they actually believe what they are saying. Republicans like Trump don't - they always become crypto white nationalists right before an election, and once elected immediately become Zionist in their policies. Conservatives are indeed stupid for either not knowing this or falling for it time and time again.
white people pushing their interests politically does scare me. Because I'm not a racist, I think policy should be race neutral. when any one race begins pushing for specific policy to benefit them, it leads to oppression.
Anything that benefits one race would see other races disadvantaged.
The only reason one would want to see one race succeed over another would be if you believed that race was superior in some way, or "more deserving".
I did ask you direct questions which you did not answer.
I take this as a hint that you would prefer not to say how you feel on such matters.
White nationalist types / Nazi's are a lot like vampires.
They are very dangerous creatures, and alluring to one with a weak mind.
But like any Monster of the night, You need only pull back the curtain and expose them to the light of day.
The bright shining truth, is enough to send them recoiling back into the shadows.
Those who are truly ugly wear a mask of civility, and speak in half truths and disinformation.
Policy literally can't be race neutral because the races aren't equivalent. Any given policy can therefore positively or negatively affect one or a number of different races/demographics.
You want diversity, you're going to get diversity - that is to say, different racial groups waring over their own interests under a single system of government. But you believe White's are somehow uniquely evil for engaging in identity politics - meaning you're anti-White.
"Nazi" and "White supremacist" are strawmen, equating normal and healthy racial tribalism in Whites to genocidal bloodlust, then you act high and mighty when we don't openly embrace the strawman.
The races aren't equivalent. That's a self-evident fact. Call it racist, Nazi, whatever you want. Humans are animals and there's no equality in nature - only difference.
Well, unlike you I respect anyone's racial solidarity. I wouldn't try to deconstruct the identity of a Black or Asian person or try to mentally alienate them from their folk.
Tribalism is a deeply ingrained trait in all humans. It evolved with us for a reason. You want to deny nature because you're a Christian. Maybe not in the metaphysical sense, but your ideology is rooted in Christianity. You think we can transcend our nature in favor of a universal morality.
It's always, didn't hear. Didn't see. Didn't mean. Didn't do. He and his followers can't seem to work their way around the concept of accountability. He could start kicking kittens in public and his fans would do the mental gymnastics necessary to justify it.
It's a good comedy piece with well sourced material. I would invite everyone that actually has a life to see what these hyper sensitive racists come up with to pass the time. Too bad they don't try and actually save black lives. Wouldn't that be nice.
