White Man March: What Do We Want? Everything! When Do We Want It? Now!/Still!

Abby Zimet

In case you missed it, this weekend marked the White Man March, a "viral idea" and "international day for pro-white activism" in which "racially minded Americans" came together to argue that "White people are discriminated against, mocked, displaced, and violently attacked, all of which amount to White genocide,” or, in their succinct banners, "Diversity=White Genocide." Reports from several locations indicated about 14 people turned up. A few engaged with puzzled onlookers, arguing somewhat less than coherently that how would people like it if the Japanese couldn't live in Japan, huh? In Alabama, cops took down their few genocide-themed banners because "we dont welcome that type of mentality or behavior here." Actually, the most newsworthy part of the whole thing was the response: Trollers and wise-acres took to Twitter - "I have a black friend, "I want my Country back! I know it was actually never my Country but I want it back anyway," "If we cannot have it all, why should you have any?" "I have a Blu-ray DVD of The Blind Side" - that made it all more palatable. The lesson: There are still, and likely always will be, idiots out there, but they're outnumbered. Hopefully, vastly.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.
