For once, I agree with Donald Trump:
JUST IN: President Trump on Christchurch terror attack: “white nationalists are a small group of people that have very very serious problems"

It’s true that White Nationalists have some very, very serious problems. There is no point in ignoring the fact that there are some violent people in White Nationalism. We’ve watched people like Glenn Miller, Robert Bowers and Dylann Roof launch these attacks for years now.
The strategy that inspired the attack on the mosques in New Zealand is called “accelerationism” in White Nationalist circles. Basically, accelerationism is the idea that White Nationalists have no hope of ever being accepted in mainstream society because of leftwing journalists and groups like the SPLC. Conservatism has failed them. It has failed their countries. Nothing will ever change until our civilization becomes so polarized that it falls apart in a violent apocalyptic civil war.
What happens when you force people who disagree with you to shut up? What happens when you ignore their grievances? What happens when you give them no hope or room for a positive sense of identity? When they have no political representation or place in the economy? Well, they become desperate enough to resort to sporadic nihilistic violence to bring about change as we saw yesterday again in New Zealand. These are people who desperately want to be heard by the bankrupt political establishment.
I don’t think any of that is necessary. I’m an accelerationist, but a different kind of one. I believe in accelerating the collapse of Conservatism, Inc. and the Republican Party which is preying on their racial and cultural anxieties in order to advance their inhumane economic agenda. That’s why I am going to vote for Andrew Yang in the 2020 Democratic primary. Unlike Donald Trump, I think Yang listens to people like us.
Generally speaking our society should be a little more forgiving. Shame in particular loses power if overused. And beyond shame lies entropy.

After today I feel Yang is vindicated. There are real things to consider when the economy is fucking over everybody and demographics are changing. It creates an environment of suspicion and hostility that create such events.

Sometimes all it takes to stop these angry people in their tracks is to listen to them and reason with them and try to compromise and I think that is a better idea than anything the GOP or SPLC is offering.
I now think we need an intelligent, pragmatic centrist in the White House to tackle our 21st century problems, not a two bit celebrity con artist who hosted a reality tv show and sold out his supporters.
