People who are often willing to turn a blind eye to racism are typically okay with Trump and don't believe he is racist even though he was part of the birtherism against President Barack Obama which has been found, in one academic study, that "among white Americans, birther beliefs are uniquely associated with racial animus"; another study indicated that belief in "birtherism" is "a function of both partisanship and racial resentment."
quote: Anna Merlan, a journalist who has covered conspiracy theories and misinformation for years, is blunt. “The conspiracy caught fire because people were uncomfortable with the idea of a Black president, and they were eager to believe any number of racist smears against him,” says the author of Republic of Lies: American Conspiracy Theorists and Their Surprising Rise to Power. “I mean just plainly, it was racism.”
So the fact that many white people don't mind trying to educate black people about racism while claiming Trump isn't racist is really just evidence of their own racism.
Alex Jones will deny he is racist or anti-semitic because he is smart enough to understand that many consumers of conspiracy theories are black and these are potential votes for his party. So they engineer theories that tap into people's fears, including the fears of racists. They tell them that there's a race war on the horizon as if its being promoted by the other side. So how are whites supposed to not buy guns and support the NRA when they think democrats are simultaneously trying to disarm them while hyping up black people to fight. Anyone who follows politics knows this isn't true but conspiracy theories are able to swing for the fences without taking a big penalty when proven wrong. Did Obama come for their guns? No.
Still, one cannot deny the racial identity politics that exists in conspiracy theories. But you also have to consider the demographics of the conspiracy theorist. Conspiracy theories unite people who distrust the government with people who distrust Jews with people who distrust black people, with people who believe in Jesus and satan and can be led to believe their political opponents are devil worshipers. When you can harness the power of these groups and their collective fears, THAT is a very powerful weapon that rivals the WMDs that didn't exist in Iraq.
So we can connect Alex Jones to birtherism and other theories and we can connect Trump to Jones. Trump even calls Jones every so often which is crazy to think about.
quote: “I think that Alex Jones is able to tap in to some real deep, dark fears that white Americans explicitly have about the future of their country, who’s in it, who’s controlling it, and their placement in it,” Greer says.
quote: In the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing, Jones and InfoWars have pushed conspiratorial narratives warning that Black people are violently targeting white people. Another InfoWars host, Owen Shroyer, described the “Floyd circus” as a “total hoax of police brutality, and then riots and protests, and then an empty casket.” Jones has denied that he is racist. He also claims that the media, leftists and Black Lives Matter are stoking racial tensions as part of a George Soros-funded plot to control humanity.
This is why its funny when white people come to this forum defending Trump as well as these same conspiracy theories that tie back to racial fears. We haven't even come to probably the biggest racial conspiracy theory.
The white genocide, white extinction, or white replacement conspiracy theory is a white supremacist belief that there is a deliberate plot, often blamed on Jews, to promote miscegenation, mass non-white immigration, racial integration, low fertility rates, abortion, governmental land-confiscation from whites, organised violence, and eliminationism in white-founded countries in order to cause the extinction of whites through forced assimilation and violent genocide. Less frequently, black people, Hispanics, and Muslims are blamed, but merely as more fertile immigrants, invaders, or violent aggressors, rather than the masterminds of a secret plot.
White genocide is a myth, based on pseudoscience, pseudohistory, and hatred, driven by a psychological panic often termed white extinction anxiety. There is no evidence that white people are dying out or that they will die out, or that anyone is trying to exterminate them as a race. The purpose of the conspiracy theory is to scare white people, and justify a commitment to a white nationalist agenda in support of increasingly successful calls to violence.
this theory was popularized by white supremacists and is a recruitment tool for white supremacy because it tries to make other groups into a threat to white survival.
Is there a threat? Of annihilation? No. Of a decrease in population? Yes. However, it's by choice. All races are experiencing a surge in LGBTQ numbers which means less procreation. Then you have birth control. Then you have the cost of living for families and schooling. And then one of the biggest choices more people are making is interracial sex and relationships that produce black children. So black people having sex with black people produces black kids and black people have sex with whites produces black children who both races often find to be more attractive than either race. Whites can only have sex with other whites to have white children. While white Hispanics can be considered white and pass for white they may also not choose to identify as white.
So the result of this is a cultural war where whites take this more social threat and try to get other white people to be against integration, making themselves the victims. Conspiracy theories can be leveraged as propaganda and similar theories helped in the rise of the Nazi party. Even though they were defeated by the allied forces, a lot of Nazis still see Nazi Germany as a success. Hitler was defeated but the ideas of Hitler were not. So Nazis simply went from having an army to not having an army. It doesn't mean they all converted and became black loving liberals. So when we think about "where they went"... the scary thing is they can still be all around you because they weren't wiped out, neither was their message or their fears. Talking about white genocide is a fantasy created by those with the fear.
When you combine this theory with Eugenics then you also tap into the fears black people have about the government trying to literally destroy us as a race. All these fears are founded on our beliefs and biases against each other. And acceptances of these fears and conspiracy theories accomplishes the mission of what they were designed to do. They are designed to make people oppose the target of the theory. So if it's Jews its anti-Semitic, if its Obama then its anti-black. So of course "social justice warriors" have to be maligned because they are the ones who would most naturally opposed these theories being spread.
By trying to knock out the SJWs they can then attack any anti-nazi force as a (ANTIFA) people on the wrong side, while attacking BLM. None of this is coincidence and it doesn't need to be centrally organized, especially since this kind of organization is what gets groups in trouble. Instead they can all hide behind Q and make their racism look patriotic.
