Is Nationalism The Same As White Nationalism
I sat down last night, watched a week old recording of Madam Secretary, not a fan of the politics stood for in the show all the time, but find the political meandering interesting. The one I watched had as guest Hillary Clinton, Madam Albright and Colin Powell, I found myself saddened that they in the show tried to equate national pride as white nationalism, could not be further from the truth.
So what is the difference between the two? It is best to answer that, then see if we can see if there are any similarities between one and the other. Nationalism is by definition:
: loyalty and devotion to a nation especially: a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups
White Nationalism means:
: one of a group of militant whites who espouse white supremacy and advocate enforced racial segregation… his vision for the community—an enclave where residents fly “racialist” banners, where they are able to import enough … white nationalists to take control of the town government …— John Eligon — compare NATIONALIST, WHITE SUPREMACIST
As you can see there is a huge difference between the two, to equate one with the other is pure nonsense, there are no similarities, and that is where the left comes in, they try to blur the lines, then claim one is the same as the other, when reality is there are very little similarities. While I have no problem with the first, I am diabolically opposed to the second.
Being with Jewish blood, I understand what White Nationalism does, where it leads that the evil of it that needs to be kept at bay at all cost, but when you are dealing with a multicultural society, one where all people are seen under the law as equal, this hardly meets the definition of White Nationalism, sadly many today have been brainwashed to think it is.
The press has really gone out on a limb with this, they have said the call to make America Great Again is somehow racist, that in some unseen way Trump and his followers wish to return to the US to the ideology that held sway before the civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s or the feminist movement of the 60’s and 70’s, yet I have never heard Trump or anyone in the GOP call for this, when pressed for proof, neither can the critics.
What Trump has called for is a US first nationist view, the other nations take second to this concept, under globalism you are to sacrifice for the sake of the global community, in other words, one nation working to become what they are, that is not right, they need to have their wealth stripped and given to the international community, what this really should be called is global socialism, the move to redistribute wealth on a global scale, that I will never support.
There is a reason for this, and it is simple. If you have a people who worked as a nation, sacrificed to achieve the greatness they now experience, have a system of government that allows far less corruption of other governments, and due to this they have experienced wealth and power, should they be obligated to give up this wealth to nations that chose dictatorship, corruption and outright civil discourse?
This is like having a neighbor, refused to work full time their whole life, I, on the other hand, worked two or three jobs, saved for my retirement, did not go on multiple vacations, did not spend my money on frivolous things, trying to keep up with the Joneses, because I retired in security that does not mean I am obligated to pass some of my wealth to my neighbor to make up for his shortcomings, yet this is what globalization is about.
Bernie Sanders, who claims to be a Democratic Socialism, that alone is a lie, he is just a socialist, there is no distinction, he openly advocates forcing the US and other nations to redistribute their wealth to less wealthy nations, you have him saying as much here:
What I always find most amazing, and we saw this back in the Russian Revolution, there were noble families that supported the Bolsheviks, let them use their palaces to hold meetings, but sure were not willing to give their wealth for this purpose, turns out neither is Bernie, I am amazed how these people are always so quick on the trigger to hand your money out, but then slink into the shadows when they are asked to do the same.
What we really have is a globalist agenda to internationalize all governments, to redistribute the wealth, basically make every nation poor, force nations, like we see to a greater extent in Europe, take in populations that have no interest in being part of their society, rather demand that society adjust to them or they turn to violence, all while demanding you change your morals to suit them, naturally they don’t demand the same of these immigrants.
So What Is A Nationalist?
A nationalist believes that as part of the global society we have a responsibility to aid our fellow man, but never at that point that we weaken our own nation, if migrants come here, they should do so legally, and should assimilate to this culture, not demand that we do so to theirs so as to appease them, if they can’t or won’t, then maybe they need to go back to where they came from. I do have to add, I think it is important to hold onto your culture, but not force others to bend to it, you bend to the new society you are now part of.
A nationalist believes that your faith is deeply personal, they have no right to dictate to you what to believe or not to believe, sometimes we have fundamental differences in beliefs, rather than try to browbeat the other to change, we can find what we share in common, celebrate that.
A nationalist also believe that your moral choices, your core beliefs are yours, they are not theirs, they have no right to infringe on them unless they are affecting them in a negative way, then they have two choices, see if they are doing so because they are not willing to give you room to practice them as you believe, or is it you doing this not to give them this courtesy? If the first, they have to figure out how to change to give you the courtesy Ithey demand, if the latter they need to stand up and let you know that this will never be allowed.
A nationalist wants nothing to do with White Nationalism, the beliefs of both are in opposition to one another, they believe that all races are equal in this nationalistic view, that there is no supremacy of one versus the other, although they do acknowledge that our nation, while a constitutional democracy, it is also ruled by the majority, to claim that somehow the majority are “racist” due to the color of their skin, such as we see with the fictitious claim of “White Privilege” is racist at its core, this needs to be rejected. A majority is a majority, not a thing of superiority, never was intended to be that way.
Nationalist has no problem with telling the truth, facts and truth aren’t racist, the only reason one would claim such is if they find the truth and facts don’t support their ideology. A nationalist has problems with Islamic extremism, say we need to do more extensive background checks where this is prevalent, this is not racist, it is dealing with the fact that we don’t need extremist coming into our nation. This is not Islamophobia, to claim it is is nothing but a lie, it is a move to excuse Islam of the radicalism that seems to follow it.
Nationalist are not racist when they say the problem with the Black Community is their broken families, single-parent homes, rather than accept responsibility for one’s own actions; they are taught to blame everyone and everything for this, at least everyone but themselves. What is racist is acting like the Black Community can’t help but be this way, to make excuses for them acting like such, we should be offering ways to better themselves, not make excuses for the problems.
A true nationalist would reject racism in this nation, we are not a nation like in Europe, where they are made up of Englishmen, Frenchmen, Dutch, nor are we from Asia where they are almost exclusively made up of Chinese, Laotians, or Vietnamese, nor from Africa where they see over 95% of their population Sub-Saharan African, we are a melting pot, a people made up of people that left all these area’s, came togather as one large nation, to be a true nationalist, racism should be the furthest thing from your mind, yet the Left would have you believe otherwise.
Our strength has been that when our ancestors came here, in some cases our parents or grandparents, they changed to become part of the nation, but they added parts of the culture they came from to enrich this nation’s culture, we have added their uniqueness to the whole, thus enriching all of us. We became stronger due to our diversity, not weaker because of it.
The left refuses to report on this, instead, they try to focus on the less than 10,000 White Nationalist, act like the other 65 million are part of this as well, that is the worst type of racism, trying to project a few to be part of the whole, it is as bad as the White Nationalist who many times will take the actions of a few and say the whole race is that way. If we dig into this, we see the press, and the left is no better then the people they are screaming about.
I will finish this by saying, I am a nationalist, I support the nationalist ideology. While I am a nationalist, I am opposed to everything the White Nationalism stands for, anyone that is a true nationalist would. The leftist press is trying paint another picture of us, but we know what we are, it is time to stand up to the liberal loons, let them know these slanderous lies will no longer be tolerated.
My allegiance is first to my nation, after that I look to the world, globalist want us to look to the world at the detriment of our nation, I want nothing to do with his.
