I think this “white supremacy” thing is getting a little out of hand.

San Diego City College hosted a “confronting white supremacy through the arts” event earlier this month, distributing flyers that pointed to the slogan “Make America Great Again” as an example of “covert white supremacy.”

Campus Reform:

“Come join us in confronting White Supremacy through students’ performances,” read a promotional flyer for the event, photographed by Campus Reform. “Prior to the performances, guest speakers will set the stage and contextualize what white supremacy is, its areas of activity, and how rampant it is in our society, curriculum, mindsets, and media.”

If you listen closely, you’ll find out just how “rampant” white supremacy is.

Event attendees received multiple worksheets, supposedly visualizing white supremacy.

One pyramid ranked white supremacy on a scale of “Overt White Supremacy (Socially Unacceptable)” to “Covert White Supremacy (Socially Acceptable).” Items on the former side of the pyramid included the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and the n-word.

But “covert white supremacy,” according to SDCC, includes “Make America Great Again,” cultural appropriation, Columbus Day celebration, and “racist mascots.”

All that is fine, but they’re missing something, aren’t they?

Another white supremacy pyramid classified “Euro-centric curriculum” and “claiming reverse racism” as “veiled racism” and “funding schools locally” as “discrimination.”

Fixed it.

They have now outlawed much of the conservative agenda and, of course, delegitimized 60 million voters. What will they do for an encore?

“I had my MAGA hat on campus and had to hide it in worry of being threatened or targeted with speech or allegations again by another student,” Rodriguez said. “I attended the end of the event to see that they had multiple students performing acts such as rapping, poems, singing that were directed towards the current administration and people who either support or follow the current president/administration. Some of the topics included some of the misinformation about people like me (Trump supporters).”

When everything becomes racist, or suggestive of white supremacy, they will have won.

I hate having to write about this hysterically exaggerated idiocy because white supremacy does indeed exist in America and the violence it fuels has become a growing national problem.

The number of white supremacists has probably remained fairly stable, but for whatever reason you want to give, they are definitely more visible — and dangerous. Racist and anti-Semitic attacks have undeniably skyrocketed in recent years. Push-back from the right against efforts to combat the violence is misguided. A newfound focus on rooting out the violent, unbalanced criminals who plan and carry out these attacks is necessary.

The left is trying to use “white nationalism” and “white supremacy” to destroy the credibility of right-wing politics by lumping the mouth-breathers in with everybody else. Unless there is more forceful and active opposition to the purveyors of this hate, the left will prove their point.
