Why Trump’s Western Civilization Isn’t a ‘White Supremacist Dogwhistle’

On Thursday, President Donald Trump gave a powerful speech in Warsaw, Poland, in which he unabashedly defended Western Civilization. Liberals heard the speech as a “white supremacist dogwhistle,” an “alt-right manifesto,” or a defense of “white, Christian hegemony.” These attacks could not be more wrong.

    That might not be what he meant, but it is a fact. When The majority of people in California are Mexican, it won’t be western civilization anymore, it will be Mexican civilization and all that it entails. When our cities are all “majority minority” the cultural capital in the bank will eventually all be expended and they will resemble the places the new inhabitants come from. There is no magic soil here which will make them like us.

    Funny, but white Americans and Eastern Europeans are the ones willing to stand and fight.

    Africans and other diverse persons are fleeing to the safety of the pale nations for protection — and for the free stuff of course, derived from the bounty of capitalism.

    Of course Western civilisation was founded by whites, and so what. This is no reason for guilt or whatever, and those who don’t like this fact are free to move to any other place of their choosing. Frankly I find the race of any civilisation irrelevant, because I judge each civilisation on its own merits or lack of. That Western civilisation has been a huge success and has brought multiple benefits to the whole world justifies full merits.
