A story published by The Washington Post today about the rise of a new breed of white nationalism and the growing power of white nationalists and neo-Nazis has a lot of important lessons about the state of our democracy.
But I’m here to tell you this story in two parts, so that you can see that there’s much more to it than meets the eye.
Part one of the story: The rise of ‘white nationalism’ In the early years of the Trump administration, the phrase “white nationalist” was used to describe those who espoused racial or ethnic nationalism.
That label was first used in a tweet by White House press secretary Sean Spicer in July 2017, and was extended to include “white supremacists” and other white nationalists in January 2018.
That phrase became shorthand for those who believe that white people have been unfairly marginalized and are seeking to reclaim the country.
The term “white nationalism” is derived from the words “white,” meaning “white” and “European,” which were the official national English-language spelling of the country’s official word, “United States.”
The term is a reference to the European influence on the American West and a reference in particular to the “European” ancestry of white Americans.
This interpretation of the term has a long history.
A book published in 1858 by a prominent American historian named Daniel Webster described the United States as a “white man’s land” and its inhabitants as “white people.”
Webster’s book was an early precursor of the more modern racial and ethnocentric nationalism that has shaped the modern American political and cultural landscape.
Webster’s racist views were widely embraced by white supremacists and white nationalists.
In the late 1920s and early 1930s, white supremacist groups like the Ku Klux Klan were active in the United Kingdom, the United Nations, and Germany.
In 1928, Adolf Hitler made the Nazi Party the official party of Germany and the Nazi-controlled Germany in 1924 became the German Nazi Party.
The American Civil War was the deadliest conflict in U.S. history, and white supremacy was one of many grievances and prejudices that fueled it.
During the Civil War, slavery was legal in the South, and whites were not allowed to own land or hold property in the Confederacy.
The Civil War ended when the Union won the war.
At the time, many white supremacists viewed the war as a victory for Southern whites, and in the years since, many of them have embraced their Confederate ancestors as a source of pride.
In 2017, the president of the Ku-Klux-Klan, the largest Ku Klux Clan in the country, Richard Spencer, made the argument that white nationalism was a necessary part of the U.K.’s “great, glorious cause.”
The Ku Klux Klansman even used the term “White Nationalist” in a 2017 article for his website, The Daily Stormer.
In his own speech in 2017, Spencer called for a “White genocide” to “exterminate the Jewish race.”
White nationalists often describe themselves as “Americans first.”
Spencer is a fan of the Confederate flag and believes it is a symbol of white supremacy and superiority.
Spencer said that the Confederate battle flag “is an extension of the old white supremacy ideology,” and that it “represents a white people as superior to all other peoples, peoples of color and other races.”
Spencer and others have said they hope to see the “return of the white race” in the U
