So talk about it instead of skirt it.
The United States didn’t send aid containing weapons to the white supremacist murderer in New Zealand. The United States’ media isn’t acting like the white supremacist murderer in New Zealand is the good guy trying to restore democracy to a failed state. The United States didn’t spend years training the white supremacist murderer in New Zealand how to be a ‘leader’ and how to use CIA tactics to overthrow governments.
Of course what happened in New Zealand is horrid. Of course we must talk about it, condemn it, discuss what causes this malignancy, and come up with ways to stop it.
But when an article is billed at discussing global white supremacy and fails to mention how the coup in Venezuela is a white supremacist coup it is PROPAGANDA, it is diversion, it is the worse omission possible in a discussion of white supremacy on a global scale. Propaganda doesn’t have to be spreading information that isn’t true. It more often is telling the truth- just not all of it.
I could go on and on and also discuss Yemen, hatred of migrants, Palestinians, Flint, the shooting of unarmed Black men, incarceration of Native Americans far beyond their percentage in the general population, etc., etc.
I get this is a discussion of New Zealand. But if it is going to be framed as white supremacy going global- then at least mention these other aspects of global white supremacy.
This kind of narrative that poses as helpful that actually lends itself to supporting USA Imperialism just boils my blood.
