Rios argued that people who speak out against white supremacy in the United States aren’t actually talking about white supremacy, but rather they are secretly attacking conservative Christians.
If you think there’s anything secretive about our dislike of conservative Christians and their enmeshment with white supremacism and corporate greed, you haven’t been paying attention.
“It’s not about your skin color and when they go further and compare President Drumpf to Nazis and their white racism, it’s really silly because, remember, the Nazis killed thousands, hundreds of thousands, of people, but guess what? They were white,” Rios said. “The Nazis were Aryan supremacists. They had a certain superhuman race they wanted to develop and most white people did not qualify.”
1. …So, what you’re saying is that the huge and important distinction between Drumpf and the Nazis is whether or not you personally would be admitted to the “master race” club instead of being gassed to death alongside all those godless brown people who genuinely deserved to die.
2. It’s possible to hate more than one group of people at the same time, so the fact that whiteness wasn’t (and still isn’t) a magical aegis for anyone considered untermenschen on some other axis (communist, disabled, LGBT+, etc.) doesn’t prove a damn thing.
