Saw the Speech by Richard Spencer (given at the end of this post). Look at what using a public racial divide in an election opens up…. There is a reason why you do not publicly create racial divide like Trump did. It is because you cannot even with your self professed charisma close out boxes that you opened to just make a point.
Trump has said “I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn.” But that is what happens when you tickle the people on what they want to hear. True that Racism always existed and Trump did not start it. But the way he carried out his campaign, he opened it up for all. He made many people think it is ok to be Racist in meeting halls, that it was ok to be racists in Parking Lots and even while you wait on traffic lights. The way Trump campaigned many people think it is legal to be Racist and that is the biggest demon of his own creation that Trump will have to fight. And when you also bring people like Stephen Bannon to be an advisor at the white house it does not help.
It is going to be real tough for many Republicans to work through this and for Trump to take back on what all he said to win an election. The problem is People with these kind of thoughts as shown in the video are never open for dialogues because they think the color of their skin makes them superior. It is not just about White supremacy but about race, religion and Ethnic Supremacy that happens in many parts of the world. One should never give fuel to it and that is a responsibility of everyone.
I know many might say this is just one group and not everyone. That is because either they do not understand history or care to not. Even the thought of a race Supremacy stands on the graves of millions of defenseless men, women and children slaughtered in broad day light in the name of twisted ideologies.
Yes when you ignore this you do so standing on Graves, countless of them dug in front of a world that remained divided even in the wake of such atrocities. Graves that owe their existence to not just supremacist ideologies but also to the silence of those who dare not speak for they are not effected. Graveyards that owe their existence to people who denied what was happening in front of them. Graves that even today flourish in the mind of people who in the name of nationalism deny that man is equal, that man and woman are equal, that black, brown and white and yellow are equal. Graves that daily send signals to humanity for what they have decided to passively and Actively ignore…
So yes this could be just one group but if it does not ask you to speak then I am not sure what will….
Richard Spencer the speaker here has popularized the term “alt-right” to describe the movement he leads. Spencer has said his dream is “a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”
