A "historic victory for white life"

    From the Chicago Tribune ...

    MENDON, Ill. — When freshman U.S. Rep. Mary Miller took to a county fair stage Saturday night to thank former President Donald Trump for appointing conservative justices who led the U.S. Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, she called it a “historic victory for white life.”

    Miller, who has Trump’s endorsement in challenging five-term Republican U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis in Tuesday’s primary, did not elaborate on the “white life” comment she made on stage. Later, a campaign aide said she meant to say “right to life,” but misspoke.​

    And later in the article ...

    Just days after taking office in January 2021, Miller was facing calls for her resignation after she cited Adolf Hitler in a speech to a conservative women’s group in referring to the political indoctrination of young people.

    “Each generation has the responsibility to teach and train the next generation. You know, if we win a few elections, we’re still going to be losing unless we win the hearts and minds of our children. This is the battle. Hitler was right on one thing. He said, whoever has the youth has the future,” she said.​

    When MAGA shows you what it is, believe it.

    Who was it, Marjorie Greene I think, said we need to go back to the Anglo-Saxon way of doing things. And they seem to be off to a good start by trampling on others who disagree and aren't like them.

    Yes, she characterizes all of them.
    Is that why every (Trump supporter) pro-lifer opposes abortion rights?

    Pretty sure that's not the point, but rather the overt racism of it. This group does widely uphold the belief of White Genocide, this isn't the first "bleached white" statement of a MAGA politician, and from casual supporters to the extremists we are often seeing they are white supremacists.

    I suspect that most Trump supporters are more ignorant than vile.

    Haha yes I read this and my first thought was that this was entirely deliberate. It is an increasingly common technique for extremists to say something outrageous and then explain it away or say they made a mistake, but meanwhile the dogwhistle has done its work.

    I credit Democrats (& Republicans) similarly.

    Because it's further evidence of white supremacists gaining power in America and goes along with the other recent stories of white power MAGA politicians spewing their racist garbage.
    You bunch of losers!:p

    To generalize from an individual doesn't rise to the level of evidence.
    We know there are white supremacists. But to characterize all
    MAGAs as such is far less than cromulent.
    I know.

    There's at least two examples on this thread now. The OP and then Marjorie Greene's promoting Anglo-Saxon values and politics.

    But one could generalize The MAGA movement as racist, even if some individuals in it aren't. Not all Nazis were anti-Semitic (some were, in fact, Jewish), but the Nazis as a group certainly was.

    Well, 2 examples will characterize them all.

    One could do that.
    But if one has any hope of being a positive influence
    upon one's MAGA friends, calling them "racist" will
    end that relationship status, thereby eliminating any
    opportunity one has to moderate their views, & extricate
    them from their nasty echo chamber.

    I know many MAGAs. Few are racists (more so than
    most people are). I pursue friendly discussion of issues.
    It helps a little.

    I could go on, starting with Trump saying that a white supremacist protest had "good people" on their side. Both sides, was the actual quote of course, but white supremacists are not good people. People protesting on behalf of white supremacist ideology are not good people. But Trump empowered these piles of human feces.

    I recall that, & I agree with the comment in the context.
    Yet I don't see good people being white supremacists.
    (Even though they could perhaps reform, & become good.)

    It's a two way street today. One exchange for another.

    Personally I'm waiting for the civil war to start again.

    Promoting Anglo-Saxon ways to guide America is a big **** you to everyone who doesn't have English heritage. That's not a two way street but a demand for a one-way street.

    That's not the reality people made for themselves today isn't it?

    And Christian Anglo Saxon white supremacists will find
    themselves out-numbered by us mongrels & heathens.
    They should consider that we're motivated & sneaky too.
