NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. All tips are welcome.
In an effort to protect the country from the Domestic Terror threats of White Supremacy, the Biden Administration appealed to the citizenry for assistance. You can read the full press briefing here. Below are a few quotes…
“This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence.”
“Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well. But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the relationship between online recruitment, radicalization, and violence in the physical world.”
“This is a strategy that is agnostic as to political ideology or off the spectrum. What matters is when individuals take their political or other grievances and turn that — unacceptably, unlawfully — into violent action.”
“We are investing many agencies of the government and resourcing them appropriately and asking our citizens to participate. Because, ultimately, this is really about homeland security being a responsibility of each citizen of our country to help us achieve.”
When I read comments like this, I see them (leftists in media and government) painting a picture that white supremacists are everywhere, behind every corner. And while there are certainly cases of racism in America from white supremacists, it is not omnipresent. I assure you. In search of data to inform my suspicion, I discovered “Hate by the Numbers,” a data visualization of the Global Terrorism Database. It says that the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany are white supremacist hot spots. Wow. Intrigued, I looked at their chart for the USA and found the following.
The yellow line on the chart represents the dramatic increase of white supremacy incidents in America. At its zenith, in 2018, there were 40 incidents. There were other stats being tracked like Islamist extremism, Extreme Left, Anti Gov and other. However, white supremacy stats towered over them. Again, 40 incidents in 2018, then it declines.
Further down in the data visualization, they compare (globally) white supremacy attacks to Islamic Extremism and said this.
When compared to attacks by other extremist movements, violent white supremacy is the most frequently occurring over this period in these regions. Violent white supremacy and Islamist Extremism, in particular, represent two very different types of threats: violent Islamist attacks have been relatively rare in the West in the last decade, arguably because of greater law enforcement attention, but often result in a high number of casualties. Violent white supremacist attacks have occurred more frequently, but have resulted in fewer casualties on average (with the exception of the Christchurch attack in March 2019).
In 2019, the stats compared this way, globally.
- Deaths: 165
- Incidents: 336
- Deaths: 193
- incidents: 82
The current population of the United States of America is 332,854,943 as of Wednesday, June 16, 2021, based on Worldometer elaboration of the latest United Nations data. While no death or violent incident is insignificant, the amount of white supremacy incidents in the USA and globally, seems to put things in a different perspective than what I am told by the news media and the Biden Administration.
Let me take things a bit further. Not too long ago in Atlanta, there was a horrific hate crime that was portrayed in the media as a white man targeting Asians at a massage parlor. The obvious message was that white supremacy was to blame. However, the FBI stats on hate crimes against Asians don’t bear that out. To quote Summit News…
As the Washington Examiner highlights, citing FBI statistics, whereas whites comprise 62% of the population, they committed 24% of crimes against Asians in 2018. In comparison, blacks, who comprise 13% of the population, committed 27.5% of all violent crimes against Asian Americans in 2018.
So clearly, white people do not represent the biggest crime threat to Asian Americans.
The figures once again underscore how the media has contrived another hysterical moral panic in order to bolster what can no longer be seen as anything other than institutional racism and hatred towards white people.
While there may be multiple hate groups out there pushing a racist agenda, the one that best fits the narrative of the mainstream media is the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), famous for their violence against blacks. And yet, their membership has been on the decline for YEARS!!! To quote, The Intercept reported this in 2019…
It sometimes seems that the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is never far from the spotlight. This is odd, since its actual numbers are officially in sharp decline according to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) – one of the most effective, respected and thoroughly informed of anti-Klan groups.
The SPLC’s spring 2019 report, The Year in Hate and Violence argues that in the US, “White Supremacy flourishes amid fears of immigration and [the] nation’s shifting demographics”. Yet it offers one glimmer of hope, in the rapidly falling membership of the nation’s various KKK groupings.
The report, headlined “Rage Against Change”, states that the number of Klan groups has dropped significantly since 2016, when there were 130. There are now 51. The SPLC concludes: “It may be that the KKK, having somehow endured since 1866, is finally on its last legs.”
It goes on to claim that this decline is because “the KKK has not been able to appeal to younger racists, with its antiquated traditions [and] odd dress … Younger extremists prefer Fred Perry polo shirts and khakis to Klan robes”.
That quote resonates with me because I remember seeing this data from Statista after the Charlottesville incident in 2017. The chart shows the share agreeing/disagreeing with the following movements in August 2017.You will find more infographics at Statista
All that to say, if the number of white supremacy deaths and incidents is less than 0% (relative to the American population), FBI stats do not support a trend of white supremacist attacks against Asians (which is the current narrative from the left) and OVERWHELMINGLY Americans reject the ideology of the KKK then, why is white supremacy the biggest threat in America today?
Now, I can imagine how some people may refute this by equating the January 6th “insurrection” as white supremacy. If so, riddle me this. If people were protesting a government (which is what an insurrection literally is), how is that racist when the citizenry is so diverse? Please explain. I’ll wait.
And for those on the left who want the right to stop talking about Jan 6th beyond their leftist talking points that it was all a right wing conspiracy to tear down the nation, watch this and your heads will explode. (And if you want even more detail, read this. Or, ignore it, although it’s getting harder to debunk when you use discredited experts.)
OTHER THINGS I READ TODAY
30,000 fake ballots found In Georgia…
Well, if true, this is VERY, VERY interesting. Check out this quote from the video I link to here.
“Number one, they’re on different paper. What kind of paper are they on? Why isn’t it the same paper that everything else is on? Number two, they’re not folded. Well, what do you mean they’re not folded? In order to get an absentee ballot, you have to get it in the mail. Which means that the Department of Elections in Georgia machine folded the ballot, you can’t have a ballot in an envelope that you mail back, or dropbox back, that’s not folded. You either got it folded, or you send it back folded, or both with an envelope. So why aren’t they folded?”
This evidence is compelling. What happens if this is proven true? What if its proven true for other states? What will happen then? Civil war? I hate to even speculate on that.
Go woke and go broke (it never ends)
According to The Daily Wire, “There’s growing evidence that Nickelodeon’s hard push to promote the LGBTQ agenda to children is having a negative impact on the network’s ratings.”
To quote further:
Since July of 2017, Nickelodeon’s viewership has dropped from 1.3 million average viewers per week to a June of 2021 average of only 372,000. In only four years, Nickelodeon has dropped more than two thirds of its audience. That is catastrophically bad for the cable channel, but with cable on the way out, maybe it’s not so bad? The catch here is that it is, in fact, that bad and perhaps worse, simply because Nickelodeon seems to be the primary driving force behind new subscribers to Paramount+.
There are signs that Viacom has not learned any lessons and is retrofitting these old shows with the same principles that have resulted in Nickelodeon’s huge loss in ratings. Even with a show about infants, much of the headlines have been about a retconned, now-lesbian character; whatever your thoughts on that issue, it’s hard to see how a children’s show about infants is best served in advertising when the news is all about sexuality.

Kudos to Rep Byron Donalds (R) for being a free thinker and escaping the intended trap of being labeled a racist (by virtue of being a Republican), which is where the interview was heading. No doubt.
