Nonsense. I make it for all population groups. All population groups have migrated from one place to another place at some point in history. I'm not anti-white. I'm an all lives matter type of guy.
Not all white people are indigenous Europeans. And if you go back far enough, the word "indigenous" becomes so vague as to be meaningless.
All people who border other people have vaguely similar cultures and frameworks. In most cases, it's impossible to define a "white" border from a "non-white" border, as borders bleed into one another.

A model discussing abstract properties does not necessarily map into the real world https://rofasss.org/2020/05/. But, again, even if it did, white people in toto are not ethnocentric. White people include a vast admixture of cultures and ethnicities. And even if, hypothetically, white people were all one distinct culture and ethnicity, and we could map abstract properties from the model to the real world, the utilitarian nature of ethnocentrism doesn't tell us whether or not one ought to be ethnocentric. From a strictly utilitarian perspective, it may be in the best interest of an impoverished family with too many mouths to feed to kill a few of their children, but that doesn't mean that they ought to actually do so.
Calm down. White people aren't going anywhere. In a godless universe, no one deserves anything. As Dawkins put it, "In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won't find any rhyme or reason in it, nor any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference." In a God-full universe, there is neither Jew nor Gentile... we are all one in Christ Jesus.

Proof? And for what purpose?
Proof? And for what purpose?
The legalization of "gay" marriage. Marriage is an institution that was intended to act as a foundation for a family. The gay rights movement claimed authority over this institution and subverted it's telos, which was a spiritual vow between two people who were committed to a properly ordered sexual relationship so that they may produce children. If you read the literature of gay rights activists, the purpose for this subversion is to up-end all social norms, which they see as manufactured constructs to keep the elite in places of power and control.
You've made a number of unstated assertions. First you're asserting that all social activism undermines non-Jews. I don't think you can support that claim. Second, there is no such thing as "White culture." The only thing that "White" people share is a relatively similar phenotype whose borders are impossible to define. And those people come from a massive range of cultures, some of which have seen extreme conflicts and rivalries between one another. Third, none of the things you mentioned (feminism, the Supreme Court, Joe Biden's cabinet) are categorically Jewish. Fourth, no culture has ever been preserved. It is the nature of human societies and cultures to change. More often than not these changes are cyclical. There is nothing new under the sun. Finally, even if true, the suggestion that Jews have a disproportionate representation in social activism does not inversely suggest that all Jews are then acting to undermine all non-Jews. You simply can't get from one to the other. It's trivial to point out that that is not the case. Jews are not a monolith. They hold a wide range of views, some in direct conflict with others.
Your final sentence and linked article is a non sequitur. You're again making unstated assertions. This time, presumably, that the Democrat lawmakers in the article = all Jews. And then a further unstated assertion that if Democrat lawmakers = all Jews, and these lawmakers show bipartisan support with Republicans for Israel, then that means that all Jews actually do support Israel. But none of that can be taken from your link. Democrat lawmakers are not universally Jewish. Not even a majority of them are Jewish. And not all Jews are universally Democrat lawmakers. They're not even all Democrats. And nothing in this article suggests anything about Jews or Democrat lawmakers liking or disliking Israel. What the article does suggest is that criticism of Israel mostly comes from Democrat lawmakers.
I know something about cults because I was raised in one and escaped it years ago. I can tell you're in a cult because you don't critically think about the things you write. You assume that certain precepts naturally go together because....of course they go together. If you really thought about why you think about the things you're writing, you would see that they're all very simplistic and silly.
You're talking about "white" people as though they are some sort of monolithic tribe. They're not. You don't belong to a "white" people. At best you belong to single subset of people, out of dozens and dozens, who happen to have a relatively similar phenotype. And if you're an American, you probably barely belong to that one subset with anything more than genetics. And you don't have to play the Uno Reverse card for people who claim to hate all white people and want to see them go extinct by suggesting that you should love all white and hate all non-white people. First of all, it's simply not true that you love all white people. You don't know all white people, and there's plenty of bastards out there that you'd probably find loathsome. Only a simpleton would think that the only recourse to other's embracing ethnocentrism is to embrace your own ethnocentrism.

The only white supremacists that most people ever encounter are those found on forums like these. You'll find them slithering around on their stomachs all over here, Gab, and 4Chan, but generally speaking, you're unlikely to meet one in real life, or at least, one who is out in the open about it (unless you just happen to be in the same circles). The anonymity of these sorts of social forums takes the sting out of holding views that most ordinary people find repulsive.
Some gay people absolutely do claim authority over straight people.
Some Jews may act in the manner you suggest. There are plenty of Jews who are not interested in undermining non-Jews. There are plenty of Jews who despise Israel. Regardless, most Jews are white, no matter what some Jews may say or how some Jews may behave. In fact, most Jews are white even if they all said the were not. They're not wrong about claiming to be white, unless you're claiming that the word "White" (and yes, I've noticed the capitalization) only applies to non-Jewish Anglo-Saxons or some such. Using common words like "white" in peculiar ways is cultic behavior.

For the same reason a ton of ordinary people are now claiming to be non-hetero or mentally unstable. It's popular to be a victim or in a minority and unpopular to be part of the majority. People are often wrong about the things they claim about themselves.

Reddit has a huge list of free speech alternatives over at r/Redditalternatives. Some are more toxic than others, and a lot of them are not very big.

There is no downvote button on Saidit. So if you think a post/comment is insightful, you click on the lightbulb. If you think a post/comment is fun or funny you click on the happy face. The happy face was supposed to be for humorous posts/comments, but I think some people use it to laugh at commentors personally. So far it's not been used that often in that way, as far as I can tell.

I'm a little confused by what you're attempting to say. Are you simply pointing out that the oppression of open debate finds its roots in fascism?
I am fascinated by Wilhelm Reich though, even though I think he was a bit of a loon with all of that sexual energy orgone stuff. I recently read Peter Reich's book, A Book of Dreams which is basically his recount of his childhood memories of his father.

The racists and antisemites seem to be attempting to take over every new platform that don't outright ban them. They've already taken strong root here on Saidit unfortunately. I don't know what the option is, as I'd like this community to be as free a place for open dialogue and ideas as possible, but as it slowly morphs into another Voat, I'm not interested in sticking around. Hopefully the admins will come up with a solution and intervene somehow. Even if it's to purge some of the more active hardcore racists off the site so that the community can become more diverse.

Yeah, the crazy anti-semite/racists have been attempting to hijack all of the anti-censorship Reddit alternatives like they did Voat. I'm all for uncensored speech, but I don't want this site to become yet another echo chamber slum. I'm hoping that the influx of new members from the ban will result in moving the needle back to the middle before it goes too far right. I'm pretty apolitical. Probably centrist, and not much of a feminist, but I'm glad that GenderCritical found their way here. Maybe their left-leaning voices will act as a counterbalance to a lot of the far right voices here, and it will result in an admixture of people with all sorts of views rather than the hegemony of Reddit and Voat. Probably not, but I can hope at least.

I think only half of these are true, the other half, not so much. I don't think anyone should necessarily get banned for denying the holocaust, but it's a really stupid thing to deny. Probably not that many people have ever heard anyone deny Holodomor or the Gulags and so I'd be surprised if anyone were usually banned for that. Typically people who deny the holocaust do it for racist reasons. I'd be surprised if that were true for Holodomor or Gulags.
Zionists are routinely defamed on Reddit as is Hasidism. Islam isn't something Redditors like so much either. In fact, Reddit is pretty anti-religion altogether. Christianity definitely gets more hate than the others, but it's not like they're pro-Islam or anything.
No one should be calling for violence or insulting people because of their race. Reddit may be hypocritical in the last few ways, but this dude sounds like he just wants to complain that he can't be a piece of crap and get away with it.

It's definitely Christ Myth theory stuff. Robert Price is one of the 2 or 3 historians in the world right now with semi-relevant credentials who's still pushing this idea. The vast majority of historians who study the period, both conservative and critical, have found the theory absurd, and, really, psuedohistory at this point.
