Today, the boogeyman is “White Supremacy”. The worst insult that can be hurled is “White Supremacist”. And for those of us who are Caucasian, and who do not see ourselves as superior to other ethnic identities, we are confused. How can they just lump us together with the KKK?
Have you heard the phrase, “show the colors” in reference to flags or gang outfits? Using this as a guide, “white” isn’t a skin color (think about it, if you’re Caucasian, you’re not really “white”), it’s code for “Western Civilization Christian”. And “their” fight is against “Western Christian Civilization”.
Let’s look at some history. According to Wikipedia: “The Wars of the Roses were a series of bloody civil wars for the throne of England between two competing royal families: the House of York and the House of Lancaster, both members of the age-old royal Plantagenet family. Waged between 1455 and 1485, the Wars of the Roses earned its flowery name because the white rose was the badge of the Yorks, and the red rose was the badge of the Lancastrians.”
And later in history, again according to Wikipedia: “Above all, the White movement emerged as opponents of the Red Army. The White Army had the stated aim to keep law and order in Russia as the Tsar’s army before the civil war and the revolution of Russia. They worked to remove Soviet organizations and functionaries in White-controlled territory.”
Are you starting to see a pattern? Today we speak of “Red” states and “Blue” states, when, in fact, a good map of the United States will show neither.
These are all “color-codes” to help us decide who is “US” and who is “THEM”.
In fact, in America today, besides “Reds”, we have “Blacks”, as in Black Lives Matter, and one enterprising group has chosen to use a “Rainbow” flag as it’s colors.
So if you’re confused how Kyle Rittenhouse can be labeled a “white supremacist” when all of the people he shot as he defended his life were “white”, or how Winsome Sears, a “Black” woman who is the new Lt. Gov of Virginia can be labeled as a “white supremacist”, or how “white supremacy” can be considered the most dangerous threat our nation faces, or how YOU can be labeled as a “white supremacist”, now you know.
Showing my colors: PROUD TO BE WHITE (that is: Western Civilization Christian who believes in Law and Order, hates discrimination in ANY form, and wants to see America Great Again.)
