huh what if the larger problem is white supremacy is organizing itself into an effective international network, that'd be terrifying wouldn't it.

Like what Breivik citing Pamela Geller was a serious indication that this was happening on a global scale and that something urgently needed to be done to address or to at the very rigorously document it

What if the advent of the internet and its accessibility has made it about 10000000x easier for white supremacists to organize both in and from one nation to the next? What if it turns out that white supremacists are really good at organizing online and too few people notice.

What if liberals fail to take that seriously under the delusion 1. Racism is mostly over and everything will go back to normal after Trump and that mistake won't get made again and 2. think white supremacists are stupid backward hillbillies who can't use a computer effectively

What if white supremacists relationship to Russia has more to do with wanting to end NATO than it does wanting to avoid WWIII

What if Alexander Bissonnette was yet more proof of how dangerous the situation is becoming--not that Bissonnette was coordinating with anyone but that white supremacy demonstrably is permeating national barriers and we don't have an effective way to deal with that yet.

Here's a funny thought--when the Berlin wall came down white supremacists made themselves known almost immediately in Germany, what if this has been a problem all along and its just been quietly growing ever since. From Zeskind's Blood and Soil:

You know, in the context of the post-war occupation Europe it would make an awful lot of sense that a white power nationalist movement was probably regarded as an antidote to socialism and communism and so the western powers surely would've stoked that, right?

America did empower a disturbingly high number of outright former Nazi party members in the aftermath of the war for this specific reason. They'd obviously not be able to undo any of that in 1989 and beyond. And they didn't.

What if the fundamental and most important change after the cold war was that white supremacists would begin to work toward a future in which war is waged between races, not nations

what if they have allies, what if this is a movement, what if climate change is going to help them shove people into the abattoir after they have been saying for decades that the white race needs to be preserved and that it's zero sum. Make that easier, wouldn't it.

The lesson the right learned from WWII was not that genocide is bad and should never be undertaken but that if you are going to carry one out you had better have a coalition.
