Your friends that don’t call you out on your shit aren’t your friends.
LANE. BRUH. SAY THAT SHIT ONE MO GAIN.
Y’all, your friends who check you on your bullshit are the most important resource you got. Treasure that shit cause it means they really give a shit about you.
LOVE AND TRUST LIKE THIS IS INVALUABLE
My irl friends need to read this and really understand it before they tell me I’m racist for calling out racist behaviour.
Neo-Nazis were also pioneering a strategy they called “ghost skins,” which are attempts by right-wing extremists to keep quiet about their hateful views so as to blend into society and covertly advance their causes. “One white supremacist group has reportedly encouraged ghost skins to seek positions in law enforcement for the capability of alerting skinhead crews of pending investigative action against them,” says the report.
Another report released the same month revealed more about what it calls this “fascist path of stealth.” A ghost skin deliberately avoids shaving his head, wearing boots or braces, or anything that identifies his Nazi origins. “We strive to blend into society to be unrecognizable to the Jewish enemy,” one white-supremacist website is helpfully quoted as explaining. Prospective ghost skins are encouraged to join the military and receive training that can be passed on to other Nazis.
they also join the work force. live in the suburbs and generally do their best to make life hard for people that they hate. Imagine this person works in HR. Imagine they work in healthcare. Imagine they are a social worker.
Another reason why people who joke about being Nazis or WS in order to be edgy are making life harder for targeted people. If you think it’s funny to be confused for a Nazi, you are worthless scum.
so basically white supremacists encourage each other to gain positions of power where they can abuse, murder, and torture non-Aryans. why are people so surprised that legislative groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council (responsible for stand your ground laws, immigration laws like SB 1070, and the expansion of the private prison/immigration detention industrial complex) have connections to explicit white supremacists??
We need to seriously start looking into shit like this, something this revealing of those who say they’re here to serve and protect ought to be in the million + notes cause it would explain why so many white cops are so trigger happy and ready to maim people of color.
A perfect example of why white supremacists benefit from an aura of doubt. They’re intentionally playing off some invasion of the bodysnatchers type shit because they know that people are skeptical about just how widespread white supremacist ideals have become.
