“A White nationalist might believe in White superiority, but he cannot be a supremacist because nationalism and supremacism are directly opposed to each other in the matter of slavery. Nationalists specifically don’t want persons of other races around them, neither as slaves nor in any other status.” – David Sims, “White nationalism, White supremacy, and White superiority” – National Vanguard, August 13th, 2019.

“Solid majorities of Americans oppose removing the statues, and ratings for the now-politicized NFL, NBA, and MLB are way down, even though former sports fans are trapped in their homes with nothing much to do because of the pandemic. This means the traditional American majority is moving down the road toward being explicitly aware of what the game is. Reasonable White people watching this unfold cannot possibly believe that the glorious multicultural future will be anything but a disaster for White America.” – Kevin MacDonald, “Why it’s important for Trump to win” – Occidental Observer, October 21st, 2020.

“But how has critical rhetoric affected right-leaning whites? Are white conservatives likewise getting woke to these Marxism-inspired perspectives?… Do they accept that only whites are capable of racism, that all whites are racist, and that white identity itself is uniquely pathological and deserving of abolition?… To the contrary, it seems that white identity’s renewed salience – its ‘visibility,’ in the language of Peggy McIntosh – is contributing to a defensive response. Conservative whites are increasingly likely to describe being white as ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ important.” – Christopher Schorr, “Research shows critical race theory is actually making people more racist” – The Federalist, October 19th, 2020.

“Other critics have noted that the term ‘systemic racism’ is never defined within the bill itself, leading it wide open to interpretation by future governments. Scholars of systemic racism typically argue that the existence of any disparity between racial groups is evidence of systemic racism even when disparities are explained by other factors, which necessarily demands equity initiatives in order to fix. This could potentially undermine the principle of blind justice, as ‘justice’ may be applied unequally to individuals in order to achieve an equitable outcome in recognition of historic group injustices.” – Noah David Alter, “Trudeau Liberals amend bill to make judges undergo ‘systemic racism’ training” – The Post Millennial, October 28th, 2020.

“The Democrats are locked into support of policies that are ostensibly meant to address racial disparities and gender related issue (sic) but will instead increasingly turn government into an intrusive mechanism for social engineering, abandoning America’s traditional meritocracy while also creating categories that some might describe as fostering reverse racism and sexism… A glorious multicultural and gender bending future shaped by Democratic Party social justice hacks will be nothing but a disaster for most Americans, effectively disenfranchising many citizens based on the color of their skin or for other attributes yet to be determined.” – Philip Giraldi, “The disappearing America: Progressives want a revolution, not just change” – Unz Review, October 29th, 2020.
