White Supremacy and the Alt Right’s Emotional Appeal to White Victimhood

As has been seen before by white supremacists, such as Richard Spencer, the new emergent form of white supremacy know as the “Alt Right” has chosen to taken a more stealthy approach to propagating their message: victimology. In this new articulation, whites are presented as the victims of a relentless onslaught by non-whites whose explicit goal (either in collusion with white liberals or better yet, created by them) is the elimination of the white race. In my conversation with “Dwayneنtruthman” on Twitter, he wonderfully articulates this new form of white supremacy’s sales pitch:

So I crafted a quick seven minute response to articulate and draw out the truth of what this appeal is: white supremacy (surprise!). Because according to Dwayne, Spencer, and their ilk, whites, and only whites, are those who have an inherent and rightful claim to America (and Europe) because of their whiteness they see themselves are the civilizational builders of the West (which denies all non-whites any role in contributing to that civilization), thus, all others must apply with the ever increasing risk of being denied.

يا أَيُّهَا النّاسُ إِنّا خَلَقناكُم مِن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثىٰ وَجَعَلناكُم شُعوبًا وَقَبائِلَ لِتَعارَفوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكرَمَكُم عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتقاكُم ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَليمٌ خَبيرٌ

“All you people! We created you from a single pair of a male and a female and made you into different races and tribes so you can come to know one another. The noblest among you in the sight of God is the one who is the most mindful of his duty to Him. Truly, God knows and is aware.” Qur’an 49: 13
