DAILYKENN.com -- It was once a powerful weapon in the far-left's arsenal of psychological warfare: Stigmatizing white people as "racists".
It's no longer working.
Ray Myers, a prominent Republican activists in Texas, is an example. Myers has been roundly condemned by the far left media for proclaiming, "Damn Right, I’m a White Nationalist."
What's wrong with white nationalism? Nothing.
The far-left, however, creates a false equivalent in which white nationalism is synonymous with racism, intolerance, and hate. In reality a white nationalist is one who is (a) white and (b) not a globalist.
Apparently, the far-left's strategy is to bully white people into embracing globalism. The syllogism works like this:
1 - If you're not a globalist, your a nationalist.
2 - Nationalism is racism.
3 - Therefore, if you're not a globalist, you're a racist.
It appears that more white people are awakening to this simple reality: Appreciating Western culture is not synonymous with hating non-white people.

At the Texas Republican Party’s 2018 convention, Ray Myers was a part of a select group of activists charged with crafting the platform for the biggest and most influential state party in the country. Myers is also a white nationalist, a fact that he declared last week. “Damn Right, I’m a WHITE NATIONALIST and very Proud of it,” Myers wrote in a Facebook post last Tuesday.
Myers is a 74-year-old activist who has been involved in GOP politics for decades. But “the pivotal political moment came when Obama came on the scene. I knew immediately that America was in trouble,” he said in an Empower Texans profile. Soon after, he founded a tea party chapter in Kaufman County, just east of Dallas. More recently, Myers was a member of Ted Cruz’s “Texas Leadership Team” during his presidential campaign, served as a Cruz delegate at the RNC convention and went on to become a Trump volunteer, according to his Facebook profile.
Reached by phone on Friday, Myers insisted that he saw nothing wrong with labeling himself a white nationalist. “I am Anglo and I’m very proud of it, just like black people and brown people are proud of their race. I am a patriot. I am very proud of my country,” Myers said. “And white nationalist, all that means is America first. That’s exactly what that means. That’s where the president’s at. That’s where I’m at and that’s where every solid patriotic American is. It doesn’t have anything to do with race or anything else.”
Myers told the Observer that he agrees with Trump’s claim that the media “is the enemy of the people,” and said the left is pushing a narrative to make white people ashamed of their heritage and to cast nationalists as racist right-wing Nazis, which he insisted “is the furthest damn thing from the truth ever.”
