Nazi Propaganda

LEO Weekly is an online magazine that describes itself as “Publishing Louisville’s arts and entertainment news, community-focused stories, and colorful local commentary since 1990.”

On August 16, they published some hard core neo-Nazi propaganda.

I don’t think they realized that they did, because it was an OpEd written my a member of Louisville’s chapter of Black Lives Matter, but it was neo-Nazi propaganda nevertheless.

White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.

2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.

4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.

6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

7. White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired. Yaw know what the fuck they be saying. You are complicit when you ignore them. Get your boss fired cause they racist too.

8. Backing up No. 7, this should be easy but all those sheetless Klan, Nazi’s and Other lil’ dick-white men will all be returning to work. Get they ass fired. Call the police even: they look suspicious.

9. OK, backing up No. 8, if any white person at your work, or as you enter in spaces and you overhear a white person praising the actions from yesterday, first, get a pic. Get their name and more info. Hell, find out where they work — Get Them Fired. But certainly address them, and, if you need to, you got hands: use them.

10. Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.

Yes, you read those correctly.  The demands of Black Lives Matter Louisville are that white people give black people real estate and then publicly shame and try to get fired other white people.

This is every single terrible stereotype about black people and social justice activists mashed together into one listicle.

White Supremacists: “Blacks are lazy, they can’t speak English and demand handouts.  The Left hates white people and wants to take everything away from us and give it to the blacks.”

Moderates: “No they are not.”

Black Lives Matter: “Shut up whitey, hold my beer.”

Something like this hits my inbox I have a reflexively terrible thought, then tell myself to calm down.  The only reason I was able to buy a home as soon as I did was I inherited enough money after my father’s passing to make a minimum down payment.

For some young white person with a mountain of college debt, doing their best to save that minimum 5% down, reading that list might be driven further into the arms of the alt-Right.

This kind of advocacy doesn’t create Back Lives Matter supporters out of white people.  It creates Nazis.

  1. So some dim-witted, inarticulate (Yaw, lil, get they ass fired, etc) BLM thug writes a list of demands, but does he actually expect anyone to abide by them? A guy who was never a slave or oppressed, writing to people who never owned slaves and never oppressed him, and demands those people give him reparations and property. I see those bumper stickers that say “Liberalism is a mental disorder” and I used to think they were just a little incendiary fun, but now I realize that they are more like an objective statement of fact and a warning.

    1. HP – No, she doesn’t expect anyone to follow them. She expects the privileged white folk — who worked hard to earn what they have and don’t want to give it away for free — to hold onto their privilege.

      Y’know, because Racism. Or something.

  3. (My apologies for the long comment, but the author kept hitting a particular point that she clearly doesn’t grok.)

    I don’t think the author understands the concept and reality of “generational poverty”. She probably has never experienced it herself, nor known anyone who experienced it.

    Generational poverty is living paycheck-to-paycheck, never having enough to meet even what most consider the basics, going on for multiple generations (so the children are raised not knowing any different). The money is gone as soon as it comes in, and the rest of the month (or week, or whatever the pay period is) you’re skating by. It’s never OWNING anything, because ownership is beyond your means. It’s always being concerned about “having enough”, not about quality, appearance, or longevity. Nothing needs to be cared for or maintained, because nothing lasts forever.

    So you want to give your home/property to a “black or brown family” coming from “generational poverty”? Here’s what happens: the new owners, having never owned anything themselves, don’t have the same concept of value or stewardship you do. They don’t know how to do maintenance or upkeep, and don’t know how to make themselves care about it, having never had to before. Your hard-earned and beloved property deteriorates under that lack of upkeep, and before long is worth next-to-nothing. The family eventually moves on, not wanting to stay in a trash heap that once was a nice home, leaving an empty shell of a building which becomes a stain on the community until it’s sold to another (non-generational-poverty and probably white-privileged) developer and renovated, or demolished to leave an empty lot no one wants.

    Thus ends all YOUR hard work and charity: Your forty-year home, gone in the space of a couple years (tops) of neglect.

    (No, I’m not making this up. There are houses [plural] ON MY STREET that this has happened to. One in particular became a meth-house for homeless people after the family left, until the “lab” caught fire and gutted it. Now it’s just boarded up and falling apart, a literal dump.)

    You’ve all heard of those families that win two hundred million dollars in the lottery, and are bankrupt within five years? They’re not stupid, but almost without exception they come from generational poverty, and have never been taught to save or invest, because they’ve never had any surplus to save or invest. Neither did their parents or grandparents. It’s all spend, spend, spend, until it’s all spent out.

    Giving all your stuff to a family from generational poverty is a noble gesture, but if you want to create lasting change, you’re better off leaving your estate to a charity that specializes in skill-development and education programs for low-income communities.
