White Supremacists Want Their Own MLK or Gandhi

The nation’s better-dressed white supremacists (no white sheets, just suits and ties) gathered in Tennessee a few weeks ago to discuss their plans to combat the dark-skinned menace. Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute said that what white supremacists really need is their own Martin Luther King or Gandhi.

The event included a debate about whether “the race problem” can be solved within “the U.S. political system,” with Brimelow and Derbyshire arguing that it can, and Spencer and Dickson arguing that it cannot.

Spencer argued that white Americans are becoming marginalized and victimized by an increasing non-white population, a problem that can only be confronted by finding “a white-advocate Martin Luther King or a white-advocate Gandhi” who can similarly “start from a position of weakness and capture people’s imagination.”

Or maybe you should have a white supremacist superhero. I mean, “grand wizard” and “grand dragon” already sound like fictional characters, not to mention “exalted cyclops.” And those white sheets can easily be turned into a cape with little effort. And thus Xenophobe Man is born!

    Given the, I’m told, superiority of the white race, you’d figure that having all the white people would be enough.

    Yeah, a Dr King or Ghandi.

    Why can’t we ever get a white person like that? Instead we get stuck with useless, dilettante, liberal intellectuals like Thoreau.

  • John Pieret

    a white-advocate Martin Luther King

    Gee, I wonder how his “I have a Dream” speech would go …

    Not to mention the Grand Kleagle. Actually, it’s the Imperial Wizard.

    Why didn’t I see eyes roll and jaws drop?

    Those are some seriously uptight, butthole clenching looks on the men on that dias…..

  • D. C. Sessions

    They had one. His name was John Calhoun.

    Now, I’m kind of curious about their proposed solution. Do they figure to just reinstitute Jim Crow, or do they want to deport everyone who doesn’t make the color-bar cutoff? Of course, those are only temporary solutions.

    “. . . start from a position of weakness . . .”

    That’s the problem, right there. Maybe a homeless white guy living under a bridge? But they probably wouldn’t allow that person to be their superhero either.

    Even Superman is technically an illegal alien. A Dreamer, maybe?

    They do realize King and Gandhi preached peace and justice, don’t they? A white King or Gandhi is the last thing they’d want.

    A homeless white guy living under the bridge would not work bc his situation isn’t due to him being white.

  • rietpluim

    @Tony #11 – Ironically, it very likely would if he was black.

    I see these guys are doing their best to live up to the stereotype of white supremacists always displaying some the weakest examples of the genes.

    I’m curious as to what those who think that the “problem” cannot be solved within the political system have in mind. I can’t think of anything that doesn’t require large amounts of extra-judicial violence.

    But it’s okay, these are right-wingers and their brand of terrorism is like totally different than the brown-skinned versions of terrorism. Also, they’re history’s greatest victims. Or so they constantly tell us.

    I like how their choices for icons are men from over half a century ago. They may has well have picked Napoleon.

    white supremacists really need is their own Martin Luther King or Gandhi.

    Why, to shoot him like they did MLK?

  • http://www.ranum.com Marcus Ranum

    Those guys sure are a fine bunch of specimens. Uh, supremacy what?

  • Childermass

    I guess they are not aware that Gandhi was indisputably racist towards blacks.

    Of course, he had the excuse of living in South Africa a century ago. What is theres?

  • sumdum

    A white man who claims whites are under attack and really are the victims? Yeah we had one, named Adolf Hitler. Didn’t work out that well.

    They already have one in D. C. Stephenson. Many in the KKK still believe his conviction for rape and murder was politically motivated, that he was a “martyr to the white cause” and “she lied”, rather than admit the violent criminal he actually was.
