White Lives Matter | Anti-Defamation League
"White Lives Matter" is both a white supremacist slogan adopted after the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as a loose movement of white supremacists who hold events to popularize the phrase.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Hate Slogans/Slang Terms Alternate Names: WLM Hate Slogans/Slang Terms

"White Lives Matter" is a white supremacist phrase that originated in early 2015 as a racist response to the Black Lives Matter movement, which arose to protest against police brutality against African-Americans and garnered considerable publicity in 2014 for protests in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson police officer.

Since 2015, white supremacists in several states, especially members of the Texas-based white supremacist group Aryan Renaissance Society, have promoted the slogan "White Lives Matter" with flyers and protests, forming a loose campaign to popularize the phrase.

By 2016 other white supremacist groups, including Ku Klux Klan groups, were also using the slogan, and it soon became a staple among white supremacist mantras, continuing even after the original campaigners ceased their activities.

Not only does BLM no give a shit about white people, they also do not give a shit about the thousands of blacks shot and killed by other blacks every year, and ESPECIALLY they do not care about the millions of black babies aborted.

The only think BLM stands for is criminals and to make sure their leaders accumulate 3 million in homes around the country.

You know Bob, you throw around terms of insult to most conservatives on here all the time, especially calling them fascists, all of whom you know nothing of. It is sickening to say the least. I bet you don't even know what the term means, but it is something that someone said to you one time, so you feel it is your duty to parrot it.

I am sure that if I were to call you a socialist or communist, you would be hemming and hawing to the mods crying that we are insulting you (but probably those terms are closer to the truth.

I am a 20 year veteran of the navy, protecting asses who want to insult people for zero reasons besides they do not agree with what they say. You have your First Amendment right to insult me...I have my First Amendment right to show you how stupid you are for doing so.

That is untrue.

I have never said "so-and-so is a fascist". That would of course be true of quite a few members, here on NT, but saying it is forbidden. The CoC does not concern itself with truth, only with vocabulary. I have never named any of NT's many fascists.

I have said, repeatedly, that "a fascist is a xenophobe and an authoritarian". NT is a refuge for many such people, because Perrie protects them.

If you are identifying in your mind the many NT members who are xenophobe and authoritarian, and applying the very appropriate adjective "fascist" to them... then that is your doing, and you are quite right!


I am sure that if I were to call you a socialist or communist...

I have always taken care to give my definition of "fascist", when applying it. That's why you know what I mean when I use the word.

If you give a correct definition of "socialist", then it does kinda sorta apply to me. Back in the day, I was a card-carrying member of the French Socialist Party... which was often in power at the time. (Unlike a certain recent American fascist who was recently in power, the French Socialists were democrats: they ceded power when they lost elections.)

I can't imagine any definition of "communist" that would both apply to me and be of any use historically... but I'm quite willing to examine any suggestions.


I am a 20 year veteran of the navy

... and I am a US Army combat veteran. Let's not go there...


insult people for zero reasons besides they do not agree with what they say

Never. I may insult someone far saying something that I know they know is untrue. Hypocrisy bothers me. But simple disagreement? Never.

Re-read your post. You write "I bet you don't even know what the term means"... when I have consistently specified the definition I was applying. You don't seem to pay any attention to what I have actually been writing... but you're mad anyway.


If you'd really like to hold a conversation, I'm all for it. With very simple ground rules: We agree on a topic, and stick to it. No insults of any kind.

It's up to you.......

"I have never said "so-and-so is a fascist"

Your 1.1.11 response to me is in direct response to my post 1.1.9 to Jim in NC.

So if you have never called anyone a fascist, who were you talking about in 1.1.11, Bob? Just because you did not name us by name still makes it very obvious who you were speaking about.

Are you going to pull a Jen Psaki and try and spin things or are you going to blame me for what YOU posted?

Did I say, "bugsy is a fascist"? No. I can't say that because it would be a CoC violation.

But let's be clear: if it weren't for the CoC... I would use the "fascist" label for all members who are xenophobe and authoritarian.

Do I think those adjectives apply to you? The CoC doesn't allow me to say.

For the last thousand years or so in the majority of what's been considered the "civilized" world, white lives were the only lives that mattered. To make this proclamation today is like proclaiming "Water Is Wet!". Making a proclamation like "Black Lives Matter" when historically they have not, that is a message of hope and change in society, a proclamation that the discrimination, marginalization and the victimization of black lives is no longer acceptable. Such a claim need not be made of white lives because they've largely never been discriminated against, marginalized or victimized. Today many white Christians claim they're victims when others say "Happy Holidays" to them instead of "Merry Christmas" or claim victimhood when they're told they're not allowed to discriminate against lgtbq citizens or aren't allowed to force their religious views into our laws by banning abortion. If they had to live even a week in the shoes of the average black American they would be storming the capital (again) with "White Lives Matter" signs and demanding change and a dismantling of the systemic racism they'd experienced.

Post a link to these 'facts' that you are relying on for your posit so I can see whether the source has 'walked in the shoes of the average black'.

Largely?  By the standards of who exactly?   Maybe you should ask the early Irish immigrants.  Maybe you should ask the people that worked years in slave conditions to pay off their passage to America.

Oh, just a heads up.  My late first wife was a black woman, and my current wife is a legal immigrant from Columbia.   So, if I'm a white supremacist as the pathetic morons of the left continually proclaim, what part of my children do I hate?  The top half or bottom half?  The right side or the left side?  The front side or the back side?  I really want to know so I can advise my children how they need to approach me.  Oh, and should I visit the mother of my late wife when I return stateside or should I never see her or take her to visit the crypt holding the ashes of my late wife and youngest son?

I've never seen anyone here call you a white supremacist and i know I've never made that claim. I have said that white supremacists in America are almost all exclusively right wing, supported Donald Trump and vote Republican, but that doesn't mean all on the right, all trump supporters or all Republicans are white supremacists. Sure, they swim in the same circles, vote for the same candidates and watch much of the same right wing media that lies more often than it tells the truth, but that doesn't mean anyone here has claimed you're a white supremacist. However, just because someone marries someone who is of another race doesn't automatically mean they're not a bigot or white supremacist, just like many misogynists have still married women, it's how they treat others and who they defend ideologically that truly defines someone.

Not you, but others.  Plus of course the ever popular racist.  You can ask the poster at 3.3.1 about that if you desire.

And I love it when people say something and then say I didn't mean "all" of those people....  

I always acknowledge that there are racists and white supremacists, much like there are black supremacists.  I'm simply tired of people using race as some kind of bullshit yard stick.

Oh, and do you REALLY believe that a white man that marries a black woman and later a Latina is a racist or bigot?  Seriously?   I'll simply note that is absolute, one hundred percent, without a doubt insanity and worthy of a plea of Innocent by reason of insanity.

And that is why I find the use of the word "white" when describing race to be rather amusing. "White" as a race has change significantly as time has gone on. But I think the point being made is even when the Irish, Italians, Jews, Catholics, Germans, Eastern Europeans etc. were being shit on they were still considered superior to any black person in America.

Yes they were.  And if you forget, people also used to think the world was flat.

The point being is that times and people change.  People today are not the people of 100 or more years ago.   

As a species we will never be able to eliminate hatred for others regardless of the reason for that hate, be it color, sex, or any other identifier people use to identify others.  And while it might be abhorrent, I will also say it's exhilarating in that we are all individuals and not all automatons marching down the road we call life in lock step with each other.  Were it like that, what would be the purpose of living?  There would be no challenge, no sense of achievement, no satisfaction with an accomplishment, no hope for the unknown and little reason to improve either individually or collectively as there would be no reason to do so.

U.K. Government Report Draws Criticism Over 'Historic Denial' Of Race Issues

Seems the right wing over there is buying into the same narratives as the right wing over here.

It also suggested the slave trade wasn't entirely negative: "There is a new story about the Caribbean experience which speaks to the slave period not only being about profit and suffering but how culturally African people transformed themselves into a re-modelled African/Britain." The report's findings infuriated many activists who accused the commission of trying to gaslight British minorities. They cited the government's own statistics , that black people in England and Wales are nine times more likely to be stopped and searched by police than white people.

An overdue conversation about black-on-Asian violence

"The frequency and brutality of anti-Asian violence have made "Stop Asian Hate" a popular hashtag and protest slogan this year. Still, America has yet to grapple with a core part of the problem: black-on-Asian crime and racism."

I'm glad America's Asians and their supporters have not just copied others by starting an "Asian Lives Matter" movement, because although they are quite right about doing whatever can be done to end hatred of Asians (so explicitly fired up and made so much more difficult to do because of the rhetoric of Trump and his minions) I don't believe Asians consider themselves superior to or more deserving of respect than any other Americans.

Although I am supportive of the BLM principles concerning equality at home, BLM lost my support when they made it a tenet of their movement to support the Palestinians against the Israelis.  They have foolishly watered down support for their core issues by supporting those that are none of their business.

When I took courses in Sociology and Anthropology at university during the late 1950s we were taught that there were only 3 races, Caucasian, Negroid and Mongoloid.  Since then there has been considerable fragmentation, so when you speak of "whte people" I'm not entirely sure of who you mean.

So tell us, in what decade or decades were white people the victims of racial discrimination.

Italians, Greeks,  ... south Europeans...  were discriminated against for many decades! 

oh wait... they were not considered White at the time...

I guess that proves your point!

See what I did there?  jrSmiley_7_smiley_image.png

A few hundred years of generational human bondage followed by a hundred years of institutional discrimination, segregation and Jim Crow are "Somehow" equal to the suffering of some really ugly red heads with freckles?
