After the Sandy Hook Massacre, I posted a short piece about the website AR15.com. I stand by my observations made there: a quick survey of the site and its political discussions are typical examples of Right-wing conspiranoid white racial resentment laced politics.
For example, take a look at the language used in some of AR15.com's threads on Obama, race, and guns for some very telling and revealing data points. The more they deny the obvious, the more clear the truth becomes that guns, conservatism, and to the degree that the latter is interbred with white racism, that white racial resentment is a driving force for the Gun Right and the militia crowd.
No surprise. The site AR15.com also echoes the tired meme that the assault rifle is a "modern musket"--and somehow a defense of liberty in an age of drones and Abrams tanks--which has possessed the most unhinged elements of the Gun Right. We have discussed the fallacy of said logic a great deal already.
I usually do not feature emails from trolls. I do not want to give them the attention or reward.
However, on occasion, if said email constitutes a teachable moment, I share it.
The following email is a good one. It can be used in an introductory sociology or political science class when concepts such as colorblind racism, the white racial frame, and white racial resentment are discussed. This email is also a nice lede for some thoughts I will be sharing later this week about how the Right-wing is much more coordinated in its efforts to troll and derail the comments sections of their ideological foes online.
In all, there are a several central principles which motivate the White Right in the United States and elsewhere. Black people are not a "model minority" like the "Asians." White people are the real victims of "racism" in America. In post civil rights America, black people are the real bigots. Black folks' justice claims are just the complaints of losers and professional victims who could simply "achieve" in America if they worked hard.
Never forget that it is hard out there for white folks. They need a hug in the Age of Obama. Please, good people of color and others, reach out to the nearest white person who happens to be a gun owner or conservative living in the Age of Obama and embrace them. They will appreciate the healing power of touch.
I had the displeasure of stumbling across your racist, black power rants today which you have disguised as a "blog". I must admit, it came as no surprise to read your hypocritical, black power drivel while making a failed attempt to come off as an intellectual writer and thinker.
It seems that the only talking point you have is the race card and you have massively overplayed it into a fanatical, black supremacist fanboy who's ideology is so flawed and hypocritical that I was literally laughing out loud while reading the 2 1/2 posts I could stomach through. You have some sadistic infatuation with racism and white people, when you are by far one of the most racist people I have ever stumbled across on this here internet.
Your obsession with trying to find a reason to blame white people for everything, is comical but disturbing nonetheless. If you really want to open up the race can of worms, I would be happy to oblige. But you won't be able to handle the actual truth, which would be purely factual and not even remotely arguable (but you would try with some nonsensical racist tirade with no factual relevance while throwing around some big words you found in a thesaurus). You are a joke and wouldn't be able to handle an argument with anyone who disagreed with your blatantly racist, bigoted ideology. See the thing is......I am not a racist, close minded person like yourself and can entertain viewpoints that differ from mine as long as they have some type of factual relevance. You on the other hand, are the complete opposite and rely on fear mongering tactics using a fanatic sense of paranoid, delusional, false hypotheses and a greatly exaggerated sense of self importance.
You sir are the poster boy for exactly what is wrong with this country and it has nothing to do with you being black. You are a hateful, racist, bigot and the only difference between you and someone in a white supremacist organization is that you probably use bigger words than they do in your manifesto type of rage "essays". You are everything that an American shouldn't be and the model citizen for why most foreigner's hate us.
Oh and your gun control article was absolutely hilarious. Do you actually believe this paranoid line of shit you write about or are you just catering to the FSA for web page views? You are 10x more racist than any white person I have ever met and your arguments are trite, obtuse, fantasy's that are no different than any white extremist. You brotha, are a joke.
