It's one thing to change your name when you're tiny and as yet ineffective. It's another when your ranks are burgeoning and the mexican government thinks you're mean.
At least it's not using the n word against us.
I just realized...
Neo-Nazi: The Double N Word.
that's perfect for optics
calling that word the double n word.
I once told a lefty that called me a nazi that nazi is the N word for white people 😂😂
Yeah but Neo-Nazi means something bad
whereas the usual n-word just means black person
@ThisIsChris Now we can make the double n word a mainstream slur.
The whole neo-nazi thing is a joke, especially since we've put in rules banning it.
Can we make appeals to change it?
Yeah and it took a century of reconstruction and integration enforced by the military, scotus, media to change the use of the n word. Trump can't even take away an asshole's press pass, there's no way we're going to turn neo-nazi into a slur.
I could be wrong but I think younger people who weren't around for WN 1.0 don't associate the term with Jack boots and pinwheels. As "neo nazi" and "white supremacist" lose their flair, surely in part thanks to good optics, the left is trying to turn WN into the new n-word for whites. But when they call Trump and Steve King white nationalists, they hurt their own objective and the term loses power by their very use of it.
People are getting radicalized but overall I think it's few in our direction. One example is the recent mid-term elections which were a blue wave. Another example for me is a personal friend who describes himself as a conservative libertarian but now posts angrily about "the nazi threat"
More like a blue thief in the night
@⚡Clark⚡ I know and we should be but there is a political optics game that needs to be played, It would be an aesthetic change, not ideological
Allsup is growing stronger as our enemies continue to mutate
That is definitely a mutation...

This bring back the whole “they are gonna call you a Nazi anyways” bit. That doesnt mean put on some armbands and start goosestepping. It means be so clean cut and clearly not Nazis that the term loses its edge.
Having our name being very honest and frank about who we are is a good thing
We’re not trying to be sly, we have nothing to hide or be ashamed of
White Identity is ok.
@missliterallywho White Nationalist is a better term than Neo nazi or White Supremacist. But only a bit, the issue isn't so much the term itself, rather the people associated with it. The term White Nationalist emerged as 1.0 was trying to present something of a better image in the 90's, however it failed and a lot of spergs started using the term, ruining it for everybody else.
@⚡Clark⚡ How is a name like the American Identity Society a dishonest ? We're American based, we believe in Identity and we're a society.
If anything it's a bit less esoteric
Because American Identity isn’t explicitly white anymore
“They’re an American group that only take whites? Lol closet racists”
Our message and mission is simple. Advocate for white Identity
Good morning, fellow Rocky Mountain Republicans
