I Met a Nazi on My Vacation
Baratunde Thurston

White genocide sounds like an insane conspiracy theory sure, but if you use the United Nations standards for defining genocide, then it makes some sense.


Although if we are going to define whatever is going on in the world right now as genocide, obviously white people are largely responsible for it themselves. Ultimately though, the way in which white identitarians use hyperbolic terms like white genocide to describe what most people see as something less sinister, is closely mirrored in the way in which BLM activists use terms like “A war on black lives.” or “The American Holocaust". (Admittedly I only ever heard Tariq Nasheed use the last one). Likewise, commited Jewish parents often warn their children that to marry a non-Jew would be to let Hitler win.

All of these examples are of people groups who view arguably non-sinister trends and statistics as coordinated attacks designed to diminish their people’s power and population. It is easy to dismiss these exaggerated claims as being irrational, but they are highly rational. History clearly shows that people who do not maintain a healthy level of paranoia and worry about their groups future, lost that future. White nationalism and the subsuming of self to the foundation of blood, is an unnatural philosophy for white people to adopt. It has only happened in the past during periods when a weak and vulnerable white population was threatened, inside and out, by malevolent forces, as in Germany and Kosovo. Most white people, before and after WW2, found the principles of Nazism repellent. We should question why these long dead ideas are experiencing a resurgence, and what unnatural circumstances could possibly lead some white people to consider adopting ideas so universally despised, instead of leaping to blame and unthinking dismissal.
