Far Right Wacko Horowitz Puts His Finger On The Motivation For Jan 6

David Horowitz is the honcho at the fringy "Frontpage Mag" which cannot be used as a source for links on Newstalkers because it is "extreme". But I came across a quote from Horowitz that I think completely explains the current "patriot" mindset, and is the core belief of the Jan 6 insurrectionists.
" any patriotic American not seduced by the Black Lives Matters’ lies knows that the opposite is the truth. Anti-white racism, and ignorant attacks on the American founding – these constitute the greatest existential threat to America. The fact that Black Lives Matter’s racist fictions make up the crippling doctrine of our military leaders should awaken everyone to the menace we face. There never has been a greater threat to our patrimony and freedom since the darkest days of the Civil War."

Yes Horowitz believes that anti-white racism is the greatest existential threat to America. Same thing that many in the Jan 6 mob believe.
Instead of eliminating racism against racial minorities, the "aggrieved" white right wants to cloak themselves in victimhood, thus we get the uproars against Black Lives Matter, 1619 Project, critical race theory, and other movements that have addressed racism in the past few years.
The main impetus for this pushback is to resist blunt reality, the white population of America is shrinking in relation to the non white. As if this is some sort of crime or calamity.
Horowitz is one of these people who completely conflates social justice on racial issue with communism. Its like he wants two bites at the apple - he wants to condemn Black Lives Matter because "anti white racism" is the biggest existential threat to America, and he also condemns it because he feels it is communist.
This approach signifies the desperation of those who feel they are losing their country to the future.
