I will admit, I didn't know anything about these these strings of attacks and the murder of elderly Asian American out west. Really disturbing. In most cases, they have caught sub human scum that have committed these crimes.
In the case of the murder of Ratanapakdee, I sincerely hope the death penalty will be sought, although that is not possible in the state of CA.

Wait, so you object to people making money denouncing racism? And you feel that they are making money “hand over fist” doing so? Could you let me in on where and how, cause I’d like to get some of that anti-racism money, lol.

How do you feel about people who make money hand over fist promoting white grievance and white nationalism?
I'm guessing he's talking about people like racist Al Sharpton.

Which is also not to say that it's Trump's "fault".. I'm just saying that you wouldn't expect it's the only trickle down to white people when it's the most powerful person in the world.
I had said previously Trump or white supremacy.

It's one of those things where there was going to be an increase in attacks on Asians/Chinese people no matter what.. your complaint is basically that left leaning media doesn't portray a complete enough picture as to why the attacks are occurring, right? As if it could only be Trump supporters and white supremacists.. I can understand that to an extent.. but then I'm sure on the other side you have the deep dive going on, right? No, I kinda doubt it. I'm pretty sure they're mostly just circulating videos and stories of black and brown people attacking Asians to counter the 'media narrative.'

I will say that from the media I consume it hadn't really struck me that they were telling me it was only Trump supporters and white supremacists, and I don't really venture too far off the beaten path as far as my media sources but maybe it's an implicit bias I have or something.. who knows.

The president of the Association for Asian American Studies & also Colorado Boulder professor:
Blaming all attacks on Asians as “white supremacy” is just another push factor for why whites are skewing Republican. This language is divisive. This should be labeled as violent bigotry.

Have a look at DiAngelo, Kendi, Hannah-Jones and Coats net worth. They, as well as the leaders of BLM have had a windfall after peddling their incorrect and intelligentially lazy books, papers, speaking engagement and rioting. But as Barnham said, a sucker is born every minute.

Point me to the white nationalist that are mainstream and making money and I will be glad to tell you how I feel, I just can't think of any.

Tucker Carlson. At least he is making money on spewing white nationalist rhetoric.

That’s pretty rich. You can’t think of Alex Jones, Tucker Carlson, Rush Limbaugh? They have all pushed variations of white nationalism, some more often than others. There are far more of these types than there are of the ones you mentioned. 🤷‍♀️

Shoot, when I was a child Paul Harvey was scaring the bejesus out of suburbanites with his stories of black inner city gangs. lol, I remember hearing him talk luridly about some crimes and getting scared when I was about five.

Its capitalism. Free market and all that, right? I thought you guys were in favor of it.

We obviously have two very different meanings of 'white supremacy' or 'white nationalist'.

That’s the problem. White nationalism is so common that it’s not as easy for people to identify.

So many common references like patriot, heritage, and American exceptionalism, are just thinly veiled dog whistles for white nationalism.

Sadly, it is hard for some people who were born into the system to see through the veil.

American nationalism is white nationalism.

I'll wait for your deep dive on the statistics that show the rise in anti Asian crime is due to white supremacy.

Disagree. Again, this broadening of the definition of white nationalism by Dems is going to drive whites to Repubs.

American nationalism is not solely a white ethnonationalism.

Agreed. A lot of Democrats and independents of many backgrounds are patriotic individuals. They love their country. It's certainly not white nationalism. The broad strokes are going to end up alienating a lot of people you'd otherwise have leaning left of center.

Making patriotism a bad word is a mistake imo.

MGT has made a ton of money in campaign contributions with the White Nationalist garbage she spews.
