Dr. Yvette Alt Miller—The Alarming Rise of White Supremacy in America:
Are American Jews controlling and manipulating non-white people in order to bring about the extinction of white America? The very question is ludicrous, yet for a growing number of Americans the answer to this offensive inquiry is – shockingly – a resounding yes.
Long noted by law enforcement officials, the rise of disparate groups of American neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white nationalists and other racist and anti-Semitic groups burst into public consciousness during the recent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Opposed to all minority groups in the US, these various haters seem to reserve special ire for Jews.
Thus, on Friday night, August 11, 2017, as Jews around the country were celebrating Shabbat, the University of Virginia witnessed a scene that could have come straight out of a 19th century pogrom. A motley group of neo-Nazis and white supremacists marched through the university’s campus waving torches and chanting “Jews will not replace us” and “blood and soil” (an English translation of the Nazi-era slogan “blut and boden”). Marchers carried banners with swastikas; one sign declared “Jews are Satan’s children”.
The next day, as white supremacists gathered in the city of Charlottesville, they chanted “Jew, Jew, Jew” and mocked Charlottesville’s Jewish mayor. Former KKK leader David Duke addressed a large crowd, warning “the American media, and the American political system, and the American Federal Reserve, is dominated by a tiny minority: the Jewish Zionist cause”.
Several factors in recent years have contributed to this obsession with Jews among American extremists. One is the overall rise in the number of hate groups in the United States. Since 2014, the number of hate groups has increased 17%, to 917 hate organizations, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Another factor in the singling out of Jews among white supremacist is an evolution in some groups’ ideology. According to the Anti-Defamation League, in the past white supremacy in America was concerned with subjugating African Americans and other non-whites. Within the past generation, however, white supremacy in America has evolved into a philosophy of supposed white victimhood.

The Charlottesville Incident: It was about Hate on the Left and Right
Things aren’t always what they appear to be.
Regular SnyderTalk readers know that for many years I have been warning Jewish people in the U.S. and Europe to be careful. They are easy targets.
There can be no doubt that anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise everywhere. Evidence of that fact in the U.S. suggests that despite incidents like the one in Charlottesville, Virginia a few days ago, anti-Semitic hate is most prevalent on college campuses in America, especially college campuses in California among the so-called “intellectual elite”.
The culprits on college campuses aren’t members of the radical right. They are members of the radical left.
I question the veracity of Dr. Miller’s assertion that there is an “alarming rise of white supremacy in America”. A bigot doesn’t become a bigot overnight. There aren’t more bigots in the U.S. now than there were a few years ago. The bigots among us have been emboldened, and they are itching for a fight. Thus, they are more out in the open and easier to see.
During Barack Obama’s presidency, we witnessed some of the most atrocious abuses of power in the history of this country, but nothing was done about it. If Attorney General Sessions does his job and investigates those crimes, people are going to be shocked by his findings.
Obama and everyone in his administration targeted conservatives and other groups that didn’t buy into their so-called “liberal progressive” agenda. They brazenly broke the law with impunity.
The radical right in America felt the heat for 8 long years, and they wanted a change of direction. They didn’t vote for President Trump because they like him or because they believe in what he stands for. They voted for Trump because he wasn’t Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.
President Trump hasn’t said or done anything that resembles anti-Semitism. That wasn’t the case for Barack Obama.
I think most Jewish people will agree that anti-Zionism is the latest iteration of anti-Semitism. Anti-Zionism is a pillar of the Democrat Party. Barack Obama is worse than an anti-Zionist. He’s an Israel hater.
Obama’s foreign policy initiatives put the survival of the State of Israel at risk and cost many innocent Israeli lives. As President of the United States, the way he treated Israel and particularly Prime Minister Netanyahu was shameful. Even so, he had the enthusiastic support of most Jewish voters in America. It’s more than incongruous that they hate Trump and love Obama.
In her article, Dr. Miller implies that Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer’s Jewishness was a factor in the violence that engulfed the town. I believe that is a ridiculous assumption. Neo-Nazis and people of their ilk hate Jews and blacks and anyone else who isn’t of European descent. Truth is they are bigots to the core. They hate, period. Their chants and signs would have been the same no matter who was Mayor of Charlottesville.
The facts pertaining to what happened in Charlottesville tell an interesting story, and it’s not the story being told by the establishment media. Despite what they want us to believe, the radical right had a permit to protest. Initially, Charlottesville denied their request for a permit, but a federal judge ordered the city to allow the protest.
Radical left counter-protesters in Charlottesville did not have a permit, but they showed up in large numbers wearing body armor and carrying weapons of various sorts. They initiated the violence by attacking the legal protesters to provoke a response. That fact in no way justifies vehicular homicide, but justice is blind and those are the facts. Loud voices won’t change them.
People who are determined to hate President Trump no matter what he does may ignore the facts, but fair-minded people won’t. Unbeknownst to the haters, they are making the president’s case for him.
The articles below raise some interesting questions. A careful reading of them will convince reasonable men and women that something sinister was afoot in Charlottesville:
- Why Were The Police Held Back In Charlottesville?
- Is Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe culpable in Charlottesville riot?
A few days ago, Elizabeth Warren said that liberals are the “heart and soul” of the Democrat Party. She’s right, and the Democrat Party is rotten to the core. Democrats are a soul sick lot. They will say and do just about anything to regain power in this country.
Those counter-protesters in Charlottesville didn’t just happen to be there. They came from all over, and they were organized and prepared for a fight. That’s not spontaneous. It was orchestrated and choreographed.
Who did the planning? A thorough FBI investigation will answer that question.
If you are a regular SnyderTalk reader, you know that I have been warning people to stay away from staged events like the one in Charlottesville because Democrats need for people to die to make their case in the establishment media. That’s what happened in Charlottesville.
Democrats got what they wanted. Their lust for power will drive them to do even more as the 2018 mid-term elections draw near. We ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Get ready for some real violence.
Looking at the facts dispassionately is critical. Rabid Trump haters will reject logic, common sense, and the law to justify their hatred. Reasonable people won’t.
President Trump was correct. Both sides were at fault. Nothing justifies murder. President Trump said that, too. Even so, nothing that the president says or does will placate those who are out to get him no matter what. Thankfully, they are in the minority.
This is a battle between good and evil. Despite appearances, President Trump is on the good side of the fight.
Democrat instigators and other radical left provocateurs are not. Neither are radical right groups that had a legal right to protest. In the Charlottesville case, the law was on their side.
Those among us who believe that radical right groups have no right to espouse their hateful views should keep in mind where that kind of thinking leads. If we follow that logic to the end, we will discover that no one has a right to express a view that is contrary to the mainstream view and that physically attacking those who dare to speak against the mainstream view is justified. The First Amendment to the Constitution was included to prevent that from happening.
As John Adams said, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
When all is said and done,
- people who abandon objectivity, reject the facts, and hold to their strongly-held beliefs despite the evidence will lose credibility and cease to be relevant in the discussion,
- shrill voices won’t carry the day,
- and justice will prevail.
That’s not a racist, white male perspective. That’s common sense.
“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
