White Supremacists Did Not Make America Great

We should not be surprised with the recent, tragic and shameful events that took place in Charlottesville, VA and one of the icons of America’s higher institutions of learning, University of Virginia, home of Thomas Jefferson, father of our Constitution.

The decision by “Unite the Right” to hold a “rally” in partnership with well-known racist organizations, such as the KKK and Neo-Nazis should not come as a surprise, since all share the same core value of hate and racism, toward Blacks, Jews, Muslims, Browns, immigrants, or even women.

The “Unite the Right” is the flagship of the “Alt-Right”, and is an organization committed to the ideology that Whites, mostly men, are superior to all other races, and that they are the guardians of America’s White purity and its future, with the implied promise to make America Great Again.

Though not a historian nor social psychologist, I did make an effort for this article to see what these White Supremacists contributed to making America Great, let alone to make America Great Again. I discovered nothing.

Other than burning the cross, lynching and looking after the “virginity” of White women, has the “Alt-Right” built one school, local clinic, factory or university, or have they invented anything of consequence for America or the world? They appear to have contributed nothing to what they use in their daily lives.

If any one knows of a major invention or medical or technological discovery contributed by these White Supremacists and KKK and Neo-Cons, I am sure that I and other readers would be happy to hear of it.

Of course, such a group does find allies in the White House, with the most senior official Steve Bannon claiming that Breitbart is “the platform for the Alt-Right”; and Breitbart is a site well known for its Anti-Semitic, Pro-Zionist views, though a number of present and former senior editors are Jews; and Breitbart is well known for its anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim views.

The Alt-Right stands against “multiculturalism, non-white, women, Jews, gays, Muslims and other minorities” – you name it, they stand against it.

The ideology is at best “tribalism”, and with the Whites being that “special tribe”, the “Chosen People”, with no offense to “Jews”. They truly and genuinely believe they are America and they are what made America somewhat great, with the hope they will make “America Great Again”.

Of course, I have a hard time thinking of how this group of people can “make America great again”, when for the most part, they are lacking the education, the idealism of hard work, community service, family values, innovation, and commitment to make a better society, wherein citizens could enjoy a decent life, decent future, better and universal health care, better affordable education, and job training, among other sought-after ideals that make America what it is.

I am not sure if the Alt-Right nation has anything to do with those who made America truly great – the Founding Fathers, the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy.

Or leaders like those who developed America’s industrial powers – the likes of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, Eli Whitney, Charles Goodyear, Steve Jobs, George Eastman or George Westinghouse.

America is great not because of the Alt-Nation but because of giants like John Glenn, Alan Sheppard, Virgil Grissom, Sally Ride, Jeana Yeager and Dick Rutan, Howard Hughes, and John Trippe.

And the likes of Frank J. Weed, Charles Horace Mayo, and Jonas Salk, or Wernher von Braun, or Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson and John Harvard and Leland Stanford, or Bill Gates or Larry Page and Sergey Brin, certainly Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.

“Talk about it” (Poster credit: Ricardo Morales)

America is great because of exceptional medical talents the likes of Russell N. Nelson, or Gazi Yasargil, or Thomas Starzl or Jean-Michael Dubernard or Robert F. Spetzler or Sayed Modasser and Ioannis Pallikaris.

These great men and women – Whites and Blacks, Christians and Muslims and Jews and Hindus and Native Americans and immigrants – are representative of the ones who made America Great, not the Alt-Right or the KKK or the Neo-Nazis, most of whom are on welfare and unemployed, if not on the opioid. 

The people who made America Great are Whites and Blacks, Jews and Muslims, and immigrants; they all contributed to making America Great.

If any knows of one great exceptional achievement by the Neo-Nazis or the KKK or the Alt-Right, I am sure all of us want to know about it – from Sea to Shining Sea.

Unfortunately, most of those who are angry are people who have been “left behind” by successive administrations, and they were helpless to do anything about it. Now, they will always blame others for their failings and tough luck. No one should feel sorry for them. No one. Because aren’t such narrow thinkers the scumbags of America, because they have nothing to contribute to this great nation except anger, hate, and racism, and translating their failings to hate and racism?

I call on the Department of Justice as a follow up with the courageous initiatives taken by the Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the new director of the FBI to classify the Alt-Nation, and their kindred KKK, Neo-Nazis, JDL and ISIS as domestic terrorist organizations. And I call on all those aggrieved to sue the hell out of them and drive them to bankruptcy as a good start.

    As we silently acquiesce to everything Israeli we ignore the political situation in Israel. Where it is against the law for a jew to marry a black. Where Israel has been proclaimed a Jewish state. Where a 10 meter wall has been constructed around a subjugated population, which is denied clean water, and I could go on by why should I. I silently acquiesce out of fear of being labeled an antisemite by those who are not semite.

    Greetings Sami… The problem America is facing right this minute is not a loss of hegemony or terrorism. What it’s facing, and at an accelerated pace, is its destruction from within by a element seeking vengeance.
    This element considers itself above humanity. Furthermore, it is constantly brainwashed, in the steel traps of its gethos, to destroy for revenge every nation that has not believed in its God. They are the sworn destroyers of every nation that has passed, exists or to come until they reign supreme over mankind from their promissed land. They take vengence by destroying every host nation, even if by choice they arrive welcomed in her midst. Even when welcomed they consider it captivity that should be avenged by destroying the host. What I am saying here is not strange to VT readers because these are facts of logic and an undeniable history going back over 3000 years. I lived and know the “chosen people” up close and personal since October 1973. I suspect that you too know them extremely well and know their anti-human bent and viciousness. What I am seeing is the continuous assault on the fabric of America through the use of racism from the civil war to our day. The greatest contribution to mankind by the West is the emancipation of man. It is a fact that emancipation has been used by the “chosen few” to destroy out of vengence societies and its legitimate institutions all over the West. It is plain to see.

      Part2… It is plain to see. Look at Babylon, Persia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Spain, Poland, Russia, Germany, England and now America, always destroyed from within by this infection. American Christians Zionists must make a choice. Are they the followers of Jesus, Peace be upon him, and his message that all men are created equal under one God or are they un-American Christians Zionists enemies of our constitution who are exceptional enough not belong to the rest of Humanity? They just can not be both or serve two Gods. Christian Zionism is a contradiction in terms. White supremacy is ludicrous when you analyze it. America is being torn apart before it’s cannibalized but America is not finished. Looking at the goodness of America’s people; not its zionist politicians or its Bolshevics left wingers; I would say we have been down many times before but never out. We have never put up with a king or despot, and it ain’t gonna happen on our watch. If some Americans think things are beyond the pale, talk to a Palestinian in Ghaza, they will be glad to help you stand and whistle, as you know very well Sami. They might even tell you that we Americans are lucky, we have the second and what to back it with.

    • Khalid Talaat  August 16, 2017 at 2:19 pm

      America is an idea in the hearts of many, it is the idea of freedom. We must know our enemy and the enemy of mankind. We as a country are infected by a cancer that is turning us against each other. We must resist and hold onto each other. In God’s care my brother.

    Yes JohnZ the First Amendment does protect “Hate Speach” as well as offensive speech that others may find offensive or politically incorrect. However when Hate Speach inspires or calls for action then it is no longer protected speach under the First Amendment. True we became too politically correct in our speach but like ponography there is a limit. Fighting words are not protected. Shouting fire in theatre is not protected. Cursing and demeaning Zionism and Israel is free speech that may gets you fired from your job. Demeaning God or Jesus is protected speach, but demeaning Israel can get you in hot water. Carrying torches and crosses may be free speech but when it translate into violence it is no longer protected speach. Leftists Anarachists when they smash windows of torche business is not Free Speach. Yes onr can be offensive vulgar is OK but don’t turn it into action.

      Good points. It often needs to be defined by individual cases, such as the one in NY where a man was arrested by police for writing “F#@& You and Your Town”, across the face of a traffic ticket before submitting his fine. He was later vindicated and won a bunch of money in a false arrest case as it was declared free speech.
      Also, a person may not be guilty of assault for punching someone in the face, if the person has antagonized the puncher to the point of inciting. Everyone has to be a lawyer in this modern age, as we have become the Vogons of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Rules are never rescinded, just more and more are made.

  4. joetv  August 16, 2017 at 9:25 am

    Everything you said here may be true. It doesn’t change facts. The Talmud exists, and these wars are for Israel. A few questions. The division between whites, and blacks is driven by whom? The media, and media includes Hollywood. What religion is predminate among media owners? Were Sadam Hussein, and Mummar Qaddafi murdered because they were changing their banking system? Why is it a crime in 20+ countries to question the holocaust? What happened to Libya, and Iraq’s gold? There are many more questions.
    Yes, in America blacks and whites should find a common ground. Both sides are used as tools. Divide and conquer. Who said that? And who benefits?

  5. David Odell  August 16, 2017 at 8:01 am

    The funny thing about inventions, is they are quite often simultaneous and the credit of who gets their name plastered, is often political, such as the discovery of elements and who gets to name them. I certainly contend, that we would have computers regardless of any individual. Also, I would add about many of the names there, is that being a white man, I can tell you, folks would be absolutely shocked to know just how many racists there are. They are a cowardly bunch and hide it quite well. I have traveled to almost every state, and it is always there. When the rooms are without minorities, the whole thing changes. However many we think exist, multiply that by a lot. The places where people think it is rampant, are often less so than places where people think it is not. Like NY state. Not long ago, I was denied service in a bar, because the person with me, was the wrong color. And it was in the middle of a bustling business district in Pa.. This will take generations to cure. Sadly. No invention or physical thing made America great. It remains dubious if it was even “good” after 1500. Ask Native Americans like Winona Laduke about it.

    Unfortunately, there are many who misunderstood the rights and privileges of the First Amendment or free speech, free assembly and the rights to petition the government. However, the rights of Free Speech ends when the speech is inflammatory, demagoguery and cause public disorder. When chanting “Jews will not replace us” this clear and present danger to the civil order of society. No different from chanting Anti-Muslims or even Anti-Whites slogan. The marchers came with torches and machetes and battle gears. This is not a civil orderly and protected march or speech. America went to war against the Nazis and hundreds of thousands paid their lives for it. No matter what we think of Zionists there is no place for Neo-Nazism in America. First Amendment Rights are with limits.

    • JohnZ  August 16, 2017 at 7:16 am

      Excuse me but yes it does. It includes the right to be inflammatory as well as crude and profane, obnoxious and insulting , even includes the right to say that one does not care for another race, religion or gender and yes demagoguery. The only limit is the one that incites violence against others. This has all been covered in past Supreme Court cases.
      I believe you are the one who misunderstands the First Amendment.
      When we censor or arrest people for one type of speech violation, the next time can be used against someone on the opposite side.

    • JohnZ  August 16, 2017 at 7:28 am

      “There is never a shortage of lawyers anywhere eager to attack the First Amendment as though it were nothing more than a clause in a lease from a crooked landlord.” Kurt Vonnegut
      “Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could easily defeat us.” William O. Douglas.
      And just who is to judge which speech should be allowed and which speech should be curtailed?

  7. JohnZ  August 16, 2017 at 5:41 am

    The truth is: the First Amendment is under assault in America. It is now getting so bad that the internet is no longer a haven for free expression and exchange of ideas. It is all about political correctness. The left has gone completely bonkers. Conservative speakers are chased off the campus, speeches are interrupted and shut down, speeches are canceled due to threats of violence by the students. College campuses more closely resemble the old Soviet Union where anything one says can be used against them. Other students and professors walk in fear they are the next to be removed or fired for a few words that were deemed unacceptable to the P/C police.
    Professors and instructors who are behind all this are Marxists and communists who were the campus agitators of the 60s and 70s. They now have control of the campus. The violence witnessed at presidential rallies, particularly at Trump rallies by the left is just the beginning. Yes there was violence committed by both sides of the spectrum but most of it by the leftists. Someone is spurring them on to use violence.
    Hate is not just a problem with white supremacists or the KKK, which by the way only survives because of FBI infiltration, or other white nationalist group. It is also being practiced by those on the left for their own nefarious purposes.

  8. Nexus789  August 16, 2017 at 1:01 am

    Another observation about this article is that it is one-sided. The thugs on the other side are just as dangerous and intolerant.

    • Sami Jamil Jadallah  August 16, 2017 at 8:50 am

      Nexus789. Be sure that I will condemn the “anarchists” of the left as they go about smashing windows, destroying buildings and torching cars during public demonstrations. Anarchists are no different from those people who took over the streets intimidating and chanting hate. Be sure I have the courage to stand up against all these Leftists Anarchists.

  9. Eduardo  August 15, 2017 at 7:34 pm

    Bill Gates and Zuckerberg made America great???? They were the tools of Zionism that finally broke America’s back while making a fortune. If Zuckerberg talks about becoming President of USA it will be time to shift the greater Israel to North America from the ME.

    • Nexus789  August 16, 2017 at 12:44 am

      Zuckerberg’s creation (he did not create it – see below) along with Google is strangling free speech and open debate. You can think what you like as long as we approve.

    • JohnZ  August 16, 2017 at 5:25 am

      Google and Facebook are both involved in not only censoring their pages but removing anything they consider ” conspiracy theory”, non P/C or ‘hate speech” which can be anything they want it to be. What about the engineer at Google who was fired because he wrote something the P/C dummies didn’t like? People are losing their crowd funding, and other forms of monetization. Websites are being demonitized.
      Jeff Bezos now owns the Washington Post, which he uses to spew his own ignorance ie: political correctness.
      America is being censored and it isn’t the alt right that’s doing it. It is the liberal extremists, the social Marxist/ SJW types who scream nazi-fascists in peoples faces and then set cars on fire.
      College campuses are now a wasteland of ignorance and stupidity. Professors and instructors have been fired because someone was offended.
      In truth, the left is just as intolerant as those on the right and they are proving to be just as violent.

    • Sami Jamil Jadallah  August 16, 2017 at 7:08 am

      Yes, Eduardo, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg made America Great. They made it possible for you and me to communicate, They made it possible for us to exchange ideas without being held by Zionist control main stream media. They made it possible for us to connect with the rest of the world. Let us not allow our hate and disgust for Zionism to cloud our vision of the truth. Thanks.

    • Ian Greenhalgh, Managing Editor  August 16, 2017 at 9:39 am

      Not true, Gates & Zuckerberg are nothing more than figureheads for an unseen elite. The people who did the actual work that built the internet are largely unknown to the public. Tim Berners-Lee is one exception. he invented the world wide web in 1993 while working at CERN. As for operating systems, almost everything in use today is based on the work done in the early 1970s by the academics who created UNIX, this includes all versions of Microsoft Windows, Apple’s OS, Android, and every other mobile computing platform. Gates & Zuckerberg are two examples of people who have been used to restrict, corporatise and monopolise the internet, part of a major effort to destroy net neutrality and to replace the original form with a new one where everything is filtered, controlled and censored, they want everyone to communicate using a handful of platforms that they control, censor and manipulate – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Skype, they want people to only find information they want known, hence all the search engines are gone apart from the heavily censored and manipulated Google and Bing. If we are to praise anyone in the internet world, it should be people like Linus Torvalds who gave us Linux or the team that created the Apache free webserver. Of course, these people are not rich nor famous and never will be. Furthermore, I would argue that America has never been great, it has spent almost it’s entire history committing war crimes and genocide, first against it’s own citizens in the south, then the indians, then the Phillipinos and Cubans, then Latin America and so on… Over 200 regime change operations since 1945, untold millions killed around the globe, there is nothing great about America, nothing exceptional, it has been a stain on the world for many decades, longer if you are unfortunate to live in certain countries.
