    You can be white or a nationalist. You can't be both. You know, you can't have a Black Caucus. You can't have a Taco night but the damn Mexicans will sell them to you.

    It's hard to keep up. Maybe @Safety can explain it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    I would argue you can be a white nationalist, just not a white supremacist. The latter makes no sense for those who argue we are all unique but equal.

    Why? And what is the big deal?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I thought the big deal was misspelling furor.

    There is nothing to explain, the thread speaks for itself. There is not one person on tPF that expected any different response on this topic by the ones participating in it. Some people directly defend people like Rep. King’s ideology, some try and deflect from outright defending it by attempting to obfuscate by saying it took 20 years for a party to finally realize King’s racism or attempt to deflect by invoking a whattaboutism to Democrats, then you have the decent people that show up to rightly condemn King’s rhetoric.

    Wash, rinse, repeat.

    What is the big deal? Don't you ever get tired of seeing everything as racist?
