I guess that by 2017 you’d think this is a conversation that we would have gotten over. Come on, the Confederacy fell over 150 years ago (after existing for only four years and never gaining international recognition). Even the Nazi party was defeated over seventy years ago.
Are you noticing a pattern here? White supremacists poke their heads out for a little while, start some trouble and get their asses kicked.
Have you noticed that none of the people from the alt-right who bemoaned all the ‘political correctness’ in our culture are bitching about the term ‘white nationalist.’
If you’re unsure ‘white nationalist’ is just a euphemism for Nazi or Klansmen.
