Liberals blame President Trump for everything, including the rise of white nationalism, but black professor Dr. Carol Swain says the movement started mushrooming 15 years long before Trump became president.
Dr. Carol Swain is a political scientist of Vanderbilt University and predicted the rise of white nationalism in her 2002 book called, “The New White Nationalism in America.”
“The rise of the new white nationalism occurred long before the election of President Donald Trump,” Swain said to Fox News anchor Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Dr. Swain underscored that white nationalism is different from the racist white supremacy movement, even though the left-wing media and liberals don’t distinguished between the two.
“I distinguish it from white supremacy because the people who were involved [in the white nationalism movement] were more intellectual,” Swain said. “They were not espousing racial violence or using epithets, but they had grievances. They felt that white people’s rights were being trampled on and no one was speaking up or listening to their grievances.”
Swain said the white nationalism movement took off because whites felt they were being marginalized and disenfranchised after decades of affirmative action and other government programs designed to benefit minorities.
Adding to the disgruntlement is the constant browbeating by academia and the media — which lean 97% left — calling ALL white people racist and claiming they have no right to complain about anything because they have “white privilege.” Not all whites live privileged lives.
White nationalism is becoming heightened since whites will soon no longer be the majority race in the United States. It makes you wonder: Once whites become minorities, will society allow them to whine and demand preferential treatment?
This kind of anti-white rhetoric is being embraced by the left.
Dr. Swain said she first started noticing the growing white nationalism movement in 2000, and then wrote about it in 2002.
“At the time, when whites were stressing the racial double standards, I saw the potential for the argument to resonate among young people,” she recalled. “The white community has its own problems. I knew the movement would grow unless we started addressing the issues.”
Swain said we all collectively need to tone down the racial identity politics and racist rhetoric and work together to improve race relations.
“We need honest conversations, dialogue where people are listening to one another,” she said.
