Cliff Kincaid, the director of the conservative media “watchdog” group Accuracy in Media, has had enough of people like Hillary Clinton attacking the racist, sexist alt-right movement.
In a column for Matt Barber’s BarbWire website today, Kincaid defends “pro-white” groups, asking, “Is it objectionable for white people to defend their interests and even be proud of their race?” He cites as a “good source of information” American Renaissance, the white nationalist journal led by Jared Taylor and laments that Taylor has been banished from the mainstream media because he “dared to talk about whites as people with special interests of their own, separate from various minority groups.”
One of the big new issues they are using against Trump is his alleged support for what [Michael] Gerson calls “white nationalism” and [Jennifer] Rubin calls the “white supremacist movement.” Rubin refers to the hiring of Stephen K. Bannon as the campaign chief executive as a “wink-wink” to the white nationalists.
I frankly don’t know who or what she is talking about. Is it objectionable for white people to defend their interests and even be proud of their race? Is that “white nationalism?”
This overkill attack from the media was sparked by Hillary Clinton’s speech on Trump and the “alt-right,” whatever that is.
It would be nice if these columnists would let the pro-white groups speak for themselves. It would also be nice to have a few facts in place of their vitriol.
One good source of information on all of this is the website of American Renaissance, a self-described “white advocacy organization.”
American Renaissance declares, “The United States is not a territory that is up for grabs, and that belongs to whoever manages—legally or illegally—to get here. It was founded by Europeans, who gave it its culture and institutions, and America’s European core has every right to resist dispossession.”
Is there some doubt that European Americans founded this country?
American Renaissance goes on to say, “American Renaissance is a voice for all white people whose hopes for preserving their people and culture are being sacrificed under the delusion that diversity is a strength. Diversity of race, language or religion is a source of weakness and tension for a country. To ask whites—anywhere in the world—to ‘celebrate diversity’ is to ask them to celebrate their declining numbers and dwindling influence. It is to ask them to welcome oblivion.”
One can disagree with Trump on this or that issue. But the idea that it’s wrong to appeal to or attract white voters is simply ludicrous. Is it objectionable for whites to advocate policies advantageous to their race?
We commented four years ago that Jared Taylor, author of the book, White Identity, had been banned from most programs because he dared to talk about whites as people with special interests of their own, separate from various minority groups. Taylor runs American Renaissance.
