If you have ever heard of the Alt-Right movement, there is an undercurrent of white nationalism and antisemitism that runs through some of it. It's an alarming trend being fueled by the Left's attacks on white males. If some PTB want a race war, they're on their way to getting it. The last thing this country needs is a flare-up of Neo Nazis.

How Anti-White Rhetoric Is Fueling White Nationalism

...Progressive rhetoric on race has turned an ugly corner and the existence of “anti-white” attitudes can no longer be ignored.

In the past year, all of the following headlines have appeared, in well-read publications:

The White Guy Problem
White Men Must be Stopped: The Very Future of Mankind Depends on It
I Don’t Know What To Do With Good White People
Ten Things White People Need To Stop Saying
Dear White People: Here’s a List of Things We’d Wish You’d Stop Doing

What is new is the direct indictment of white people as a race. This happened through a strange rhetorical transformation over the past few years. At first, “white men are our greatest threat” postings tended to be ironic, a way of putting the racist shoe on the other foot. They were meant to show that blaming an entire race for the harmful actions of a few individuals is senseless.

Then the tenor changed. What started as irony turned into an actual belief that white people, specifically white men, are more dangerous and immoral than any other people....

....The combination of the confessional and universal aspects of white privilege and the reconstruction of white history has opened the door for white racial grievance-mongers. From 2014 to 2015, the number of active Klu Klux Klan chapters in the United States grew from 72 to 190, a massive increase for a group so closely associated with hatred. Along with these organized efforts, social media has given a dangerous new platform to white supremacists...

....Young white men, reacting to social and educational constructs that paint them as the embodiment of historical evil, are fertile ground for white supremacists. They are very aware of the dichotomy between non-white culture, which must be valued at all times (even in the midst of terror attacks), and white culture, which must be criticized and devalued. They don’t like it.....

I have suspected that the anti-white talk was going to be a case of self fulfilling prophesy. A straw man was created to argue all white people are evil, some people accepted the straw man as fact and now some are unintentionally stepping in to that role because of the need to defend their selves from attack. The concept and propagation of the white privilege narrative is causing some to feel the need to defend it.

This will not end good.

More from the article and Alt-Right:

The result of these societal double standards is for many a desire to lash out against it. For every white college student who dutifully accepts his privilege, many more resent the idea and wish to fight it. The sharpest arrow in their quiver is to be offensive.

This desire to be offensive has given rise to the “alt right.” Supporters of this loosely assembled white nationalist movement understand a playful aspect to its use of slurs. But just as the Left shifted from using anti-white rhetoric as an ironic device to an actual indictment of white culture, so has the alt right come to believe much of its troubling rhetoric.

Must be all those dangerous white neighborhoods that are no go areas for minorities.

The old saying is ask and thou shall receive. The left has been asking for and threatening a race war with their bullshit that whites should just die already. That bullshit will be stopped first at the polls and then in practice. That is hate speech that will soon catch the attention of law enforcement.

Not if law enforcement is Federally controlled. They'll be subject to all of the special protections laws that masquerade as "civil rights legislation."

Hate speech is only protected until that speech inspires action. It already is as you can see in the leftist protest and the BLM attacks on the police.

They have already crossed the line far enough to take action. No revision to the rules is needed for this to happen.

But it will be the Feds who decide what is and isn't hate speech. They might conclude that white groups defending themselves is in fact non-protected hate speech and the the ramblings of the New Black Panthers is simply non-inciting rhetoric.

Exactly right! That's the issue at hand.

If the remarks are made by a white male and no one is offended is it still hate speech?

Someone's always offended--even if they have to be handsomely paid for it.
